Custom made "flip flop".
Our feet are the foundation of our body. Let us say that you walk an average of 5,000 steps per day and weigh 60kg. That means that each foot receives a total of 150,000 kg of weight per day! No wonder that we get tired in our feet after a long day at work or on the golf course. If you run, you will apply even more load on your feet. We have been providing insoles or more correctly, foot orthotics, since long and we know the positive and healing effect when, for example, used for treating Plantar Fasciitis or problems arising from high arch or flat feet. However, since we live in a tropical climate many prefer an open sandal or flip flops for comfort. Finally we have a solution and the possibility to make custom made sandals or flip flops using a foot scan and advanced software by Paromed. We also have a solution for Hallux Valgus, sometimes known as "bunion" on the big toe. By using a special design of the upper leather (see photo below) we can position the big toe which will make the foot look better and many times also reduce pain in the big toe joint.
