What makes a pair of shoes “orthopedic” and how are these types of shoes different from regular shoes?
Orthopedic footwear is a general term for shoes that are manufactured with certain characteristics and features that support the mechanics and structure of the foot. An orthopedic shoe usually includes a good rigid midsole and outsole, firm heel counter, and removable insole to accommodate custom orthotics. Orthopedic shoes are typically available in a variety of widths and shapes to fit various foot types.
They are beneficial for serious medical problems of foot and ankle. For Instance:
