I am scheduled to have orthotics made. What should I bring?
On the day of casting for orthotics we recommend you bring the shoes you wear most often. For sneakers and work boots we will take a trace of the liners that come with the shoe. If you are having orthotics made for dress shoes or high heels we request you bring an extra pair so they can be sent out with your cast so the orthotics will fit perfectly.
