Children's Orthotic Footwear

Steeper's Therapeutic Footwear range for children provides superior comfort, support, and stability during vital stages of development and growth.

Children's feet grow at a rate of two full sizes each year until four-years-old, and then a further one size every year thereafter - highlighting the importance of correctly fitting footwear and sufficient support during this significant growth period.

At Steeper Clinic we assist children who may require extra support, to provide them with improved stability and a more energy efficient gait to help achieve an improved walking pattern. This involves prescribing specialist orthotic footwear, which may include lightweight rubber soles and extended stiffeners either side of the foot to aid in stability. 

One of our most effective ranges is the Calzamedi therapeutic footwear, which includes removable anatomically shaped footbeds for maximum comfort. Their orthotic stability boots in particular are hugely effective in providing sufficient support for children with various conditions, such as flat feet, hypermobility, hind foot instability, KTS, sensitive feet, and those who require extra support when walking. 

Available in a lace or hook and loop option, and with a variety of colour styles to choose from, they provide a variety of specialist orthotic functions for the best clinical outcome.
