A couple weeks ago I wrote on Realistic Expectations for Dress Shoes – talking about what are realistic expactations regarding orthoses for women’s dress shoes. I received some questions regarding specific shoe brands that I recommend. Some are listed below. Keep in mind, that, for the most part, there are several models from each brand that work well with orthoses. The key is that your patient take their orthoses with them when they are trying on shoes.

For “business dress” shoes for women I often recommend:
Aravon, Ariat, Theresia, Munro, Stonefly, Sofft, Softspots, Aetrex, Cole-Haan, Softwalk, Indigo by Clarks, and Trotters. Look for any closed heel shoe that will accept the orthosis.

For these shoes with a heel less than 3” I usually use a graphite orthosis with a shallow heel cup (6mm), narrow width, minimum fill and vinyl cover to sulcus.

For more fashionable heels, have your patients look at:
Cole-Haan, DKNY, Colin Stuart, Easy Spirit, Kate Spade

For the higher heels, I usually prescribe a Cobra type orthosis.
