How Our Products Are Made


We love San Diego

Drawing on more than a decade of experience making custom orthotics for patients, Olympic athletes and the US military in our San Diego lab, we have combined our expertise with that of podiatric doctors to offer high-end orthotic inserts "Made In San Diego" at a reasonable price. All orthera products have been made in our San Diego plant following the same design criteria and with the same medical-grade materials we have used making expensive prescription orthotics.

Orthera Dress/Everyday Orthotic Inserts

Our Dress/Everyday inserts feature a shock-absorbing heel pad surrounded by a plantar fascia cushion. They are designed to work together to reduce ligament strain and help protect your back and ankles. The insert has an ultra low profile and is only 3/4 length so it can Easily fit into different shoes. The foundation of the insert is a supportive FirmFlex core, which is designed to evenly distribute your weight throughout the entire foot, helping to prevent overpronation. A memory foam cushion instantly conforms to ensure that the orthotic inserts stays low profile, while an antimicrobial treated top helps to keep odor causing bacteria in check.

Orthera Active/Sport Orthotic Inserts

Our Active/Sport inserts have a heel controlling deep heel cup, which is designed to limit the movement of your heel and help isolate the subtalar joint. Active/Sport Orthera inserts have an available full-length high impact cushion. They also feature the same FirmFlex core as the Dress/Everyday model. In addition, an extrinsic rear-foot post is designed to further stabilize the heel, knee and hip at heel strike. Combined with the ultra-soft shock-absorbing layer and the same antimicrobial treatment as the Dress/Everyday insert, it's the perfect companion to any athletic shoe.
