    • At Home: from the comfort of your home, step in and out of our Bio-Foam® precision foot molds, engineered and made by Smithers Bio-Medical Systems in Kent, Ohio. Our unique process allows us to obtain an exact replica of each individual foot up to 2 inches above the ankle bones, including its volume, dimensions, fitting preferences, and elasticity indexes throughout different areas of your feet to arrive at a proper fitting shoe.

    Our Bio-Foam® molds are shipped to you on the next business day after we receive your order, along with a UPS tracking number. Delivery within the US takes 2-3 business days. 

    Once you receive it, you may follow our instructions manual included in the box. If any part of the manual is unclear, you may book a Zoom video call using this link to obtain live guidance from our bespoke specialist.

    If you use insoles or prescription custom orthotics, our foot shape acquisition process can also obtain their exact shape, volume, and dimensions so the exact amount of room is created for your insoles/orthotics when crafting your shoes or boots.
