Boston Pedorthic routinely provides measuring and detailing for custom shoes, working with a variety of shoe makers, including:

1. Traditional custom shoe makers, building one custom shoe at a time, according to a pre-existing or new pattern.

2. Technology-driven custom shoe makers using mass customization processes to bring together highly skilled, computer trained technicians and engineers with traditional, hand-skilled shoemakers.

The process starts with an in-depth, pedorthic assessment to determine your foot condition. Beginning with a recounting of your history and symptoms, the pedorthist will examine your feet and your gait and then seek to determine the contribution your custom shoes can make toward your goals.

Why pedorthics? More prevalent in Europe and Canada than in the USA, a pedorthist is an allied health professional, focused on footwear, as it performs to meet the requirements of your individual foot condition. Pedorthists are highly skilled in evaluating shoes, fitting and detailing custom shoes, manufacturing custom foot orthotics and all manner of orthopedic modifications to shoes. Boston Pedorthic is an Accredited Facility by the American Board for Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics (ABC), and is a member of the Pedorthic Footwear Association (PFA) and the Diabetes Coalition of Massachusetts (DCOM).

Candidates for Orthopedic Custom Golf Shoes

Because of their expense, custom golf shoes for orthopedic purposes are a resource for truly enhanced comfort and structural support, and a prioritized option for the discriminating player. A skilled pedorthist can help you consider functional, off-the-shelf golf shoes or orthopedic modifications to golf shoes prior to considering custom golf shoes.

A skilled pedorthist can contribute as a member of your clinical team. It is always preferable to work with a medical prescription and detailed diagnosis from a qualified clinician like a physical therapist, physiatrist, orthopedic surgeon or podiatrist to best inform the design and purpose of your custom golf shoes.

If you are considering custom foot orthotics, you can also combine the Boston Pedorthic Advanced Custom Foot Orthotics with custom golf shoes, and many quality ready made golf shoes.
