Custom orthotics are those that are created by a podiatrist, and may come in a variety of forms such as using polymers, silicone, or carbon fiber.

Orthotic companies will often offer samples of their custom made orthotics in order to let people try them on their feet before making a purchase. It is always wise to ask a lot of questions, and to understand what your new orthotics will do for you.
