Stretching the upper of the shoe using a standard shoe stretcher or a ball and ring stretcher.
A ball and ring stretcher can be used to stretch a small area over a bony prominence.
A standard shoe stretcher can increase the width, depth or volume of the upper - spot stretching also when used in conjunction with metal or wooden plugs.
Birkenstock Foot Bed
Removable foot bed
Add orthotics to any sandal with a removable foot bed/liner. To modify Birkenstocks, we peel off the top cover and work with the existing foot bed. Fill the spaces to customize the fit to the patient's foot contour and reapply the top cover.
Modify the foot bed with arch supports, kinetic wedges, varus/valgus posting, heel lifts for leg length difference or equinous to address the same issues as removable orthotics.
