The Orthopedic Tradition
Before we got industrial mass production of footwear, our shoes were handmade by a shoemaker. Customers got their own customised model of their feet. The model is called a last, and is unique to each person. This way of making footwear is still in use in the orthopaedic industry.
In Denmark, we have a long tradition of training orthopedic shoemakers. Orthopaedic shoemakers have built up a unique experience of building special footwear, combined with ensuring that the footwear is adapted to the patient's anatomical and pathological conditions.
Orthopedic shoemakers work closely with various professional groups within hospitals and practitioners. For example, when a patient with diabetic foot ulcers must have so-called therapy footwear immediately after treatment.
It requires a great deal of knowledge and experience to ensure the correct footwear for this type of foot disorder. New Feet makes shoes according to the same principles as the orthopaedic shoemakers. However, we do not have one last for each person - instead we have many lasts, so it is easy to find a shape that fits your foot.
At the same time, we make sure that our footwear has many options for adjustments, so you get an excellent fit.
