Every step a child takes is a journey of growth, exploration and self-discovery. But for children who have foot conditions, every step can also be a challenge. Tru-Mold Shoes, a leading custom orthopedic footwear company, is on a mission to transform these challenges into opportunities for comfort, mobility and confidence through their pediatric custom footwear.

Custom orthopedic footwear can play a crucial role in addressing a wide range of foot conditions in children. Some of the foot conditions that might need custom, pediatric orthopedic shoes include:

  • Clubfoot (Congenital Talipes Equinovarus) A condition where a child’s foot is turned inward and downward which makes it difficult to walk. Custom shoes can help correct the alignment and accommodate the unique shape of the foot.


  • Flat Feet (Pes Planus) Children with flat feet lack the normal arch in their feet, which can lead to discomfort and issues with stability. Custom shoes with arch support can help provide the necessary structure and prevent pain.


  • High Arches (Pes Cavus)Some children have unusually high arches causing instability and discomfort. With custom shoes, a child can get proper support and cushioning for their unique foot structures.


  • Metatarsus Adductus This condition causes the front part of the foot to turn inward. As the child grows, custom shoes can help with alignment.


  • Severe Pronation or Supination Excessive inward rolling (pronation) or outward rolling (supination) of the feet during walking can lead to gait issues and discomfort. Custom shoes can address these imbalances and promote proper alignment.


  • Toe Deformities Conditions like hammer toes or overlapping toes can cause discomfort and difficulty wearing regular shoes. Custom footwear can accommodate these deformities and provide relief.


  • Leg Length Discrepancy When one leg is shorter than the other, it can lead to gait problems and discomfort. Custom shoes with built-in lifts can help to equalize leg lengths and promote balanced walking.


  • Foot Trauma or Surgery Recovery Children who have undergone foot surgery or experienced foot trauma may require custom shoes to aid in the healing process and prevent further complications.


Children, regardless of their foot conditions, have a desire to feel fashionable and confident in their footwear. Recognizing that young wearers want shoes that reflect their personalities and tastes, Tru-Mold Shoes is committed to delivering not just comfort and support, but also a sense of style. This innovative approach ensures the shoes are both visually appealing and effective in addressing their issue.
