Custom orthotics
At James Taylor & Son we offer two types of custom orthotic service:

Orthotics with Assessment involving a visit to our shop to see one of our specialists.  We will discuss your issues in depth and take a detailed 3D scan of your feet. Your insoles are then designed using our CAD technology to meet your requirements and fitted accurately into your shoes.  A prescription by an external clinical specialist can also be used for this work, or we can copy an existing orthotic design.
