Custom Made Orthotics


The Original Sole Docs Brand

Handmade for over 30 Years

For a little over three decades, our chief podiatrist, Dr. Edward Lang, has evaluated and treated  a variety of deformities of the foot and ankle, and custom-made orthotics are an invaluable resource in his approach to conservative care. 

What Are Custom-Made Orthotics?

Custom-made orthotics are shoe inserts that our podiatrist and his team design and make specifically to the contour of your feet. They are often recommended to increase efficiency of body biomechanics by maintaining alinement and gait. 

How They Are Made

  • A thorough medical evaluation of your foot health, including a biomechanics and/or gait analysis.
  • An online analysis of how your foot pronates or supinates during movement using a medical crash pad. 
  • A three-D scan or a casting of your feet is obtained in our office.
  • Patient information is shared with our certified pedorthist who will mill wooden models of your feet. The devices are crafted to your models within a millimeter differential. The wooden models are then stored for five years and are available for future use, if needed.
  • Once received, modifications are sometimes necessary to perfect user function and comfort.

Conditions for Which We Most Often Prescribe Custom-Made Orthotics

For the Pediatric Patient

 If properly diagnosed and treated during childhood, it has been estimated that over 70% of foot deformities can be corrected by adulthood. Children who are "pigeon-toed," who walk on their toes, or who over-pronate when they walk are often candidates for custom-made orthotics. 

Conditions Effecting Our Pediatric Patients Include:

  • Flat feet and equines gait (toe walkers)
  • In-toeing- the feet turn inward instead of pointing straight ahead when a child walks or runs (pigeon toes)
  • Knock knees
  • Limb length discrepancy
  • Out-toeing- the feet turn outward instead of pointing straight ahead when a child walks or runs
  • Rear-foot valgus, placing weight on the inside of the foot
  • Rear-foot varus, placing weight on the outside of the foot

I was so thankful I was referred to Dr. Lang for a foot injury due to tennis. Dr. Lang and his team made me feel welcome and took care of all of my needs. My foot healed great and I am so thankful to be back on the court!

Recently had an ingrown toenail removed. I was very anxious and nervous about the pain and getting it removed but the doctor and staff made me as comfortable as possible. The removal was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated. The doctor is very friendly and so gentle that I didn't even know he had started the procedure when he did.
