Foot orthotics are made to support the foot, adjust its functioning and treat foot disorders. They usually come in the form of insole inserts for shoes to absorb shock and cushion the heel, ball of the foot and toes. Orthotics can also be crafted specifically for the make-up of an individual's foot. Dress shoes are often a challenge for orthotic inserts because dressier footwear tends to be more difficult in finding the right fit. However, there are options available for people who want to have heathy feet and still look fashionable.

Aetrex Shoes is a shoe company that makes orthotic shoes with the support already placed in the shoe. They make running, casual, walking, sandals and dress shoes with removable insoles, so the person wearing the shoe can insert their own personal orthotic.

The shoes also use Lynco Orthotics, which are arch supports and can be taken out and used in other shoes.
