In the latest episode of 'Workshop Live,' Tony from Chiappetta Shoes offers viewers a deep dive into the intricate world of custom orthotic design. This episode focuses on a particularly challenging case: a customer with a neutral rear and forefoot, medium arch, and arthritic conditions in the big toe—sans the bunions. There's a discomfort-causing buildup on the first metatarsal head, signaling the early stages of hallux rigidus, a form of degenerative arthritis.


Tony categorizes the foot as a 'c ten type' and crafts a solution tailor-made for these issues. The key? A custom orthotic plan, meticulously outlined throughout the episode. The orthotic design incorporates various materials and layers, along with strategically placed support pieces that provide unrivalled comfort and relief. A special inclusion is the first ray cutout, an ingenious adaptation to alleviate pressure and pain in the affected area.


What sets this episode apart is the attention to detail in the orthotic's construction process. Viewers get a behind-the-scenes look at how heat moldable materials are shaped to the foot's contours, and how precise grinding ensures a perfect fit exactly where it's needed. Tony's transparent explanation of the process showcases Chiappetta Shoes' commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.


In discussing the customer's preferences, Tony recommends the Hoka Clifton, a testament to the brand's willingness to accommodate people's unique tastes while addressing their physical needs. Moreover, the episode wraps up with highlights of Chia butter shoes and an irresistible sale event, blending customer-centric service with exciting promotions.


Chiappetta Shoes once again proves their expertise in creating bespoke solutions for those in need of special foot care. Episodes like this not only educate but also demonstrate why so many trust Chiappetta for their footwear needs—where foot relief is a true form of art.

    Orthotic Material Selection: Tips for Comfort and Support

    Crafting custom orthotics requires precision. We used a dremel tool to bevel edges, creating a depression zone filled with materials like p cell, SR poron, and XRD poron for comfort. Layering four materials with different durometers, we addressed a customer's unique foot challenges, such as callusing and leg length discrepancies, resulting in tailored orthotics for a specific pair of shoes.
