Custom-made shoes for arthritic feet

Arthritis is a common disease that affects the joints, skin and various internal organs of the body. Arthritis is often thought of as a disease for the elderly, but did you know that 4.5 million Canadians are under 65 years old and living with Arthritis?  

People that suffer from pain due to Arthritis, lower limb and feet issues often want the same thing. To be able to live an active life without the pain. Afana Pouliot can help people suffering from Arthritis, lower limb and feet issues by creating custom-made shoes for arthritic feet that are molded to your unique situation. 

What Shoes are good for arthritic Feet?

Custom-made shoes for arthritic feet help to relieve pain to your feet caused by Arthritis, we have come up with five helpful tips. 

1. Rigid Rocker Sole: To provide more efficiency from your push-off, we recommend getting shoes with a Rigid rocker sole. A Rigid Rocker Sole is curved from the ball of your foot to the toe. This style helps to decrease stress on the ball of your foot. Which then provides you with a better push-off. 

2. Custom-Made footwear: When we manufacture our footwear, we don’t follow a one-size-fits-all model. Our shoes are moulded around deformities and sensitive areas. Again the goal here is to alleviate pain. 

3. Laces to Velcro: If you have Arthritis in the hands, it can make the simplest task, like tying your shoe into an impossible task. Instead of this struggle, we can create shoes with Velcro. 

4. Prevent Pressure & Joint Pain: Custom fitting shoes with wide, deep square toe boxes with no seam over the hammer toe or other sensitive areas can help prevent pressure and joint pain from occurring.

5. Shoes with heels? If you are so inclined to wear heels, we recommend that your Heels are lower than 1″ or 2.5 cm. High heels are a no, no if you are trying to alleviate pain and discomfort. 

Other factors come into play with people that have Arthritis. These factors include other areas of your body as well as feet. For example, if you have Arthritis and it affects your back, you may want to consider slip-on shoes. Slip-on shoes don’t require you to bend over to put them on. 

Where to buy Custom-made shoes for arthritic feet?

If you have Arthritis, proper shoe selection is essential to decrease stress on your foot and to avoid pressure on sensitive areas. If you are experiencing foot pain or discomfort. In that case, you should talk to a Orthopedic specialist or contact us and we will help you figure things out.
