H is for Heel Cups and Heel Pads

When it comes to heels, it’s all about options.

Heel Cups  
More than just comfort, cushioning, and shock absorption, heel cups play a vital role in correcting foot posture and improving gait. A deeper heel cup in your custom orthotic can help control inversion and eversion. A lower heel cup is appropriate for a dress shoe because it requires less room in the shoe.
