Custom Shoes Questions

Posted by adam p on 3/04/02 at 10:42 (075612)

Please share your experience having shoes custom-made
for you. The cost(s). The style(s). The way your feet were
used for a mold/last.

Hey Adam,
You may want to look into having a casting sock used. Very easy and non-messy. Makes for a great cast.

I had custom made shoes by http://www.herseycustomshoe.com/ . It takes quite a while to get them but you will not find a better shoe anywhere.

Thank you for the tip. I noticed Hersey Custom Shoes
has you measure the circumference of your feet or feet
and orthoses, and doing so, if I recall correctly,
while weightbearing. I wonder about the advisability
of that.

Every custom shoe I cast for is done semi weight bearing. I also put pillows under their feet which helps me get a great impression of their arches.
