littleSTEPS® Gait Plates are the first semi-rigid prefabricated orthoses that effectively limit in-toeing caused by rotational deformities of the lower limb. Left untreated toe-in gait may impair proper development of the lower limb and lead to permanent structural, strength, balance, and coordination deficits.
littleSTEPS® Gait Plates work by utilizing a semi-rigid shell that effectively alters the break of the ball of the foot during propulsion to encourage realignment of the hip in gait. littleSTEPS® Gait Plates further address foot pronation which is typically associated with childhood gait abnormalities by incorporating the features of a functional foot orthosis (i.e. deep heel cup, medial rearfoot posting and skive) to control subtalar joint pronation during contact and midstance phases of gait.
littleSTEPS® Gait Plates fit children from a Toddler size 5 to a Youth size 5.5, taking children from first steps through teen years.
Don't forget to check your child's foot often, and if it doesn't look like the picture above, it's time to go to your practitioners to get fitted for the next size! See our FAQ for more information.

"I honestly can't tell you the difference it has made with her – her teachers, our family and I all agree. She WANTS to wear her sneakers every day and tells me they help her run super-fast!! ...– she was running around crazy and I have never seen her do that before her magical inserts. Thank you for helping her be able to run and play and not know the difference." - Shannon M
