Women’s Orthotic Shoes

Women’s orthotic shoes

Wearing orthotics shouldn’t mean having to wear clunky, heavy shoes that sacrifice style for comfort. Orthotics are designed to both treat injuries and painful symptoms, as well as reduce the risk of future chronic foot pain. They are specially designed by a podiatrist to fit the contours of your feet, reducing sideways movements and distributing bodyweight more evenly to reduce muscle pain.


Shoes for orthotics

If you wear custom orthotics, you’ll need shoes that have some extra room or removable footbeds to ensure your orthotics will fit, without causing unnecessary pressure or tightness. Shoes that are especially designed for orthotic inserts usually have extra depth, removable footbeds or even a variety of removable cushions, padding and soles.

Finding the Right Size

Please note that the size chart below should be used as a guide only. Ian’s Shoes for Women tries to provide an accurate size conversion, however due to each brand’s size scale inconsistencies may occur. Some styles have adjustable features, such as adjustable straps, lace-ups or removable / changeable insoles with different fitting systems. This information is detailed on the product pages.

If you would normally take a half size, e.g. 9 1/2 but the style you're looking at doesn't come in halves, we recommend you select a larger size.
