How frustrating is it when your orthotic keeps moving around in your new lovely shoes or sandals. Here is a great tip for you to help keep them well and truly in their place and your feet as comfortable as possible.
Use sticky back Velcro or double-sided sticky tape to stop your orthotic moving around
- Take the removable insoles out so that you make the most of the extra depth that this feature gives you
- Fix one side of the sticky back velcro or double-sided sticky tape underneath your orthotic in as many places as you feel comfortable, we would suggest at least at the front and back
- Peel the protective tape back from the under side of the velcro or double-sided tape and place your orthotic in your shoe or sandal in the position that you want it to stay
- Press down firmly, pop your feet in and stand up to fix the orthotic firmly in place
- If you have a 3/4 length orthotic then take the removable insole out of the sandal and place you orthotic on top of it. Draw a line across the remoable insole where your 3/4 length orthotic ends and then cut along this line. Complete steps 1 - 4 above for both your orthotic and the front section of the removable insole.
