Data show that patients with various foot diseases in different degrees of adults (including skin diseases) who accounted for 75%. Compared to the existence of foot problems people with feet healthy people to wear shoes and the choice of the relative to be picky. Shoes that eliminate or relieve foot discomfort are more likely to be the first choice for foot patients than shoes that are merely stylish but lack of intrinsic quality. Because of the narrow range of fit shoes, orthotic pads become a necessary medium for solving problems with different feet and between wearing common shoes. In other words, a higher functional orthotic required to supplement the shoes.
