With thoughts of school right around the corner, most parents go buy new shoes for their kids in August. It’s time for you to contact them and get them to check their kid’s orthotics to make sure they are still the right size as well. Chances are that they will need a new size for their new shoes! Get parents to bring kids in to be fitted for their new larger size, and have them bring their new shoes.
Here’s how to check if your patients need a new size:
We suggest that you do a mailing to the parents of all of your pediatric patients, and include our flyer on making sure kids have the correct fit for their orthotics, and include a link on your website to download it. We can customize it for you with your logo and office information.
You can find the flyer HERE
If you would like it personalized, please contact Casey Hoffman email@example.com. Please include a .jpg of your company’s logo.

Louis J. DeCaro, president of the American College of Foot & Ankle Pediatrics appeared on NBC’s Mass Appeal June 29, 2022 to talk about summertime foot tips. Dr. DeCaro talked about how important it is to protect your feet during the hot summer months. “If you have to wear flip flops make sure you apply waterproof high SPF sunscreen (and apply regularly) to your feet. A lot of people make the mistake of frolicking their toes in the water at the beach or pool (unlike other parts of their body) and not realizing the sunscreen is wearing off!”
According to podiatrist Louis J. DeCaro, DPM “You should never wear flip-flops while walking long distances. Even the sturdiest flip-flops offer little in terms of shock absorption and arch support. If you must wear something open toed in the summer, wear a sturdy closed back sandal with arch support. It offers more support and control and will be safer in the long run.”
