Plastazote Shoes

A plastazote shoe is a shoe with an accommodative, heat-moldable lining. The upper part of the shoe is made of soft materials. The lining is made of lightweight non-allergenic foam called plastazote. The insole of the shoe is also made of plastizote and can be customized to unload high-pressure areas on the bottoms of the feet. The plastizote inserts mold quickly to the feet during weight-bearing to reduce callous buildup.

Plastazote orthotics are prescribed for people with insensate feet (loss of feeling) and arthritis. The shoes are made with a wide and deep toe with a seamless lining. They also have rocker bottom soles to delay impact at heel strike and reduce stress on the balls of the feet. It is especially important for plastazote shoes to be fit by a shoe-fitting specialist. People who are prescribed this footwear should wear the
shoes as much as possible and avoid walking around in bare feet.

Cleaning and Maintenance:

Plastazote Orthotic shoes can be cleaned with a damp cloth and a mild antibacterial soap. You can also spray the shoes with rubbing alcohol and let dry. Tips and Problem Solving: If you experience pain, swelling, sensation changes, or unusual reactions, consult your Pedorthist.
