Orthotic-friendly Sandals

Recommended Posts

I recently started wearing custom orthotics.  My doctor prefers that I wear lace up athletic shoes, but those aren’t great with dresses.  I have found one pair of Propet ghillie tie sandals that fit my orthotics reasonably well. I know several of you wear orthotics. Have you found a brand or style of sandals that accommodate your orthotics? I cannot wear pumps or ballet flats because those styles cross my foot in a painful spot.

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi Vicki, try Vionics..they make shoes and sandals that are made with  high arch support.  It is like they have

they their own orthotics inside them:classic_smile:

I know in my mom's case, she needed HER orthotics, not just someone else's comfortable footbed. So Vionics might not be the right answer (for me personally, only about half the vionics I try on are comfortable - those that work REALLY work - but the others just don't, so....)

 

If you look at specialized stores, like the Walking Company, you can sort by sandals with removable footbeds. They sell Naot among other brands. Good luck!

True....she may need her own orthotic...….and I totally agree with The Walking Company suggestion:classic_smile:

Thank you all.  There is a Walking Company store not too far from me.  I will see what they have.  I knew I asked the right people.
