AMB stands for Anti-Microbial. It contains silver nitrate, which has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial properties. This cover is best used for sweaty and pungent feet. To clean, use soapy water. CLICK HERE to view available colours.
Microsuede is made of millions of fine 100% pure polyester fibres, yet feels like genuine suede. It is soft-to-touch, wear-resistant, stain-proof and is one of the easiest fabrics to keep clean. Commonly used in shoes where socks will not be worn, like sandals, as it is soft underfoot and breathable.
To clean, gently dab with a cloth dampened with lukewarm water. For harder spills, mildly soak with lukewarm water. Rub gently in a circular motion with a sponge or soft brush. Pat the area dry after cleaning. CLICK HERE to view the available colours.
Leather is a durable and flexible material created from cattle hide. It is breathable which helps with wear in the heat. It has a professional look that is preferred for many dress shoes.
Currently, our standard Neoprene is Opulex Performance. It is shock-absorbing, durable and has an inbuilt stretch nylon cloth top that is easy to clean. It is an excellent option for workers who are consistently on their feet or diabetic/rheumatology patients.
As stated on the orthotic bag supplied with the orthotic, Orthotics should be removed from the shoe on a regular basis to aerate; this is especially the case with Neoprene. Constant wear or exercise without allowing the orthotic to aerate will break down the glue between the layers, which will result in the cloth top layer peeling off and exposing the rubber. We do not suggest Neoprene for patients who are very active or sweat excessively because of this.

Our EVA is the Lunasoft range. 2mm is the standard thickness and 3mm is available on request. This is the most durable, hardwearing and water-resistant material in stock. It is a good option if your patient participates in impact sports.
This is the same great quality Lunasoft EVA as above but perforated with holes for aeration and breathability. It is best used for active patients that may excessively sweat or have pungent feet.
A felt-like material comprised of a non-woven cotton-polyester polyurethane blend. It absorbs moisture during regular wear and dries afterwards, however, if it gets wet it can get slimy so we do not recommend it for people in humid conditions or those that may sweat excessively.
This is a closed-cell cross-linked polyethylene foam. Recommended for use with accommodative devices, such as for diabetic patients and those with rheumatoid arthritis to offload areas of high pressure.
XRD Poron is ideal for use where protection, comfort and consistent performance are required, use after use. It is comfortable, flexible, and lightweight, allowing for soft, non-constricting padding and cushioning while still absorbing more than 90% of energy when impacted at high strain rates. You must specify the thickness of the poron that you want - 3.2mm. CLICK HERE to view the available colours.
