On an average day, the most common repairs we do are on women's heels. We can repair cracked heels, high heels, low heels, boot heels, and more! Customize your height by having us cut the heel down or build it up. Our skilled cobblers have been repairing shoes for decades.
Before you toss them in the trash, bring them in for an estimate. Save money by repairing instead of replacing. About 2.4 billion shoes are sold in the U.S. each year. Re-using your shoes is a great way to leave a lighter footprint on the planet.
At our store in Berkeley, not only do we sell shoes with great soles, we also do top-rated shoe repair! Our shoe cobblers do many types of sole repair throughout the day regarding half soles, replacement soles, and sole protection. Model Shoe Renew can resole Birkenstocks, designer heels, dress shoes, boots, sandals, slippers, and more! We only use the highest possible quality leather soles and we offer Vibram soles for people that want to keep wearing their shoes for years down the road.
Custom-made foot orthotics are professionally made devices inserted into the shoe to correct an abnormal or irregular gait by realigning the ankle. Commonly prescribed to reduce certain types of foot and heel pain, these shoe inserts may also be prescribed to reduce lower back pain (lumbo-sacral pain).
As the feet roll over and the legs internally rotate, the pelvis is forced to tilt forward, resulting in increased curvature of the lower back. In turn, this causes tightness and stiffness of the lower back muscles. Orthaheel helps align body posture by controlling the feet, thereby reducing internal rotation of the legs and forward pelvic tilt and easing lower back pain.
Because there are a limited number of nonsurgical treatment options for low back pain, foot orthotics are often a reasonable choice because they are both low-cost and have few negative side effects—the most common of which is tender feet. Foot tenderness also tends to disappear over time as patients gets used to the orthotics.
Insoles are easy to use. Patients simply place them in their shoes and go about their regular daily business of standing and walking. The orthotics’ design in turn helps correct the wearers’ gait in a way that can alleviate their back pain.
Foot orthotics do help provide pain relief for a substantial number of low back pain patients. They also provide a safe, noninvasive, drug-free treatment approach for anyone seeking to reduce reliance on pain medications. Foot orthotics may be used alone or in conjunction with other non-surgical treatments for lower back pain.
