There will be a break in or adjustment period in wearing your new footbeds. Since
most of us are not used to having footwear that properly supports the arch and the
heel, the support may feel unusual, but it should not hurt. Be sure to wear your
DFO FootSupports custom Orthotics for a minimum of three days before considering
re-heating the DFO FootSupports custom orthotics to further adjust to your feet.
If I have a foot problem won't moulding the insole just make the problem worse?
By following the instructions on the package, your foot will approximate the neutral
position. A neutral foot position will ensure the heated DFO FootSupports custom
orthotics correctly mould to your feet, eliminating problems, not exacerbating existing
problems. In addition, because the DFO FootSupports custom orthotics have just the
right amount of rigidity, they will conform to your feet without becoming flat or
What is the advantage of heat mouldable footbeds over regular insoles?
No two feet are the same and a heat mouldable footbed conforms to fit every unique
foot perfectly. Competing insoles claim to offer arch supports, control and comfort,
but for whose foot? Regular insoles weren't designed for just your foot! Only DFO
FootSupports custom Orthotics were designed to adjust to your unique foot.
Why do DFO FootSupports custom Orthotics cost less than traditional custom orthotic
DFO FootSupports custom orthotics cost less than traditional custom orthotics because
they use a special heat to fit technology. Heat to fit technology allows everyone
to get a custom fit without the high cost associated with visiting a health care
professional. While the DFO FootSupports custom orthotics will not take the place
of a foot care professional for people with severely troubled feet, the unique combination
of materials allow the DFO FootSupports custom orthotics to adjust to exactly your
foot shape! Custom DFO FootSupports custom orthotics are truly a revolution in foot
Do I need to heat them before I wear them?
You can wear the DFO FootSupports custom orthotics without heating them. If you require
maximum support this may be best. However, heating and moulding them to your feet
will improve both the comfort and overall support.
How long will they last?
The DFO FootSupports custom orthotics should last at least for 1 year but the durapontex
cushioning layer uses open cell polyurethane so it will not bottom out or compress
Can DFO FootSupports custom Orthotics be heated more than once?
Sure. Your DFO FootSupports custom orthotics can be reheated up to five times. Excessive
amounts of heating will cause your footbeds to lose their supportive, anatomically
designed shape. If you feel the heating process didn¹t adjust your DFO FootSupports
custom orthotics to your satisfaction simply reheat them.
Can I use them in different footwear?
Absolutely. You can use your DFO FootSupports custom orthotics in almost any type
of footwear. You can use them in trainers, running, tennis, cross training shoes,
hiking boots, ski boots, skates, roller blades, or even casual shoes. Feel free to
move your existing insoles from one type of footwear to the next.
What size do they come in?
DFO FootSupports custom Orthotics come in sizes UK 3-4.5, 5-6.5, 7-8.5, 9-10.5 11-13.
If you are between sizes, simply choose the larger size and trim the toe area of
the insole to fit your existing shoes. To do this, simply place your old insoles
over your insole and trace out the shape. Using the tracing as a guide, cut the insole
to the correct size with scissors.
How do I wash my new DFO FootSupports custom Orthotics?
If your DFO FootSupports custom orthotics need to be cleaned, simply hand wash the
top layer with soap and water. Do not machine wash your DFO FootSupports custom orthotics.
