Important! We at Custom Foot Foot And Arch don't fit you by shoe size. Two people with the same length feet can have different arch sizes. Some people will have long toes and a short arch and some people will have short toes and a long arch. Your maximum benefit from an orthotic is when your arch is measured not your shoe size, and that's what we do here to give you the best fit, correction and comfort.
