Custom Orthotics Life-Changing Story - Customer Testimonial - Chiappetta Shoes - Liz Dodo

Chiappetta Shoes

Chiappetta Shoes truly changes lives for the better. To better detail the impact Chiappetta Shoes orthotics make, here is a conversation Tony Chiappetta (CEO of Chiappetta Shoes) had with one of his custom orthotics clients, Liz Dodo.

Liz Dodo had severe plantar fasciitis for 18 months.

"I was in pain every time I took a step."

Liz went from wearing a boot to physical therapy to cortisone shots to taping and even to surgeries. There just wasn't a way for her to solve her foot pain. Liz was even using orthotics made by her doctors for a different issue that first led to her plantar fasciitis. Luckily, through word-of-mouth, Liz was able to find Chiappetta Shoes.

"Once I finally came here (Chiappetta Shoes) and I got the orthotics and Finn Comfort sandals, within a couple of weeks, I started to feel amazing." - Liz

Liz has been a happy customer of Chiappetta Shoes for four years now. Before Liz got her custom orthotics from Chiappetta Shoes, she was almost 300 pounds. She couldn't exercise because she couldn't walk.

"It's [Custom Orthotics] an investment I can't do without"

Liz Dodo

"Once I was able to get my feet back I had an 80-pound weight loss... I trained for and ran two half marathons and then decided from there, I think I can run a marathon, so I did. For my 50th (birthday) I trained for and ran 26.2 miles, without foot pain!" - Liz Dodo

    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.
