Ambulatory Footwear®

Custom Made Footwear and Orthotics in West Hamilton

sore feet


From basic designs to the most elegant patterns and leathers, custom shoes are a source of relief for those with disruptive foot conditions that are not accommodated by off-the-shelf shoes. A more economical alternative to custom-made footwear is to have existing footwear modified to function or fit better. This is done precisely to the specified details of the prescription, with fine finishing to maintain the integrity of the shoes.
