You may not think that something as basic as walking, standing, and riding your bicycle or personal electric vehicle (PEV) could cause profound problems and pain in the body. Abnormal gait and foot function can actually cause the entire body to be ‘out of alignment.’ This misalignment can result in all types of problems, including foot, ankle, shin, knee, hip, low back, and even neck pain.
Urban Soles specializes in helping urban Toronto professionals and the micromobility community to overcome health challenges from being on your feet for part or most of your day. Orthotic therapy (i.e. the therapeutic use of custom orthotics) is our therapy of choice for relieving lower extremity and spinal pain, improving posture, and preventing overuse injuries.
Custom orthotics are shoe inserts (insoles) made to your unique prescription to correct foot dysfunction that can lead to foot, knee, low back, and even neck pain. Our custom orthotics are expertly crafted from premium materials such as leather, suede, and merino wool, or sci-tech vegan materials for optimal comfort, support, and performance wherever you go.
Urban Soles Premium Orthotics support you every step of the way, so that you can continue to pursue your passion and fulfill your purpose, pain- and injury- free. From your daily eco-friendly commute, through your busy work day, to after-work relaxation, we got your back. Urban Soles premium orthotics are clinician-designed to meet the unique demands of your daily activities and custom-made according to your orthotic prescription.
At Urban Soles, we specialize in helping urban Toronto professionals and micromobility users to feel better, move better, perform better without major lifestyle changes.
Urban Soles is not just for individuals. We also help socially-responsible small and medium-sized Toronto businesses to optimize the productivity, satisfaction, and retention of their employees through the use of custom orthotics. Increased employee satisfaction, productivity, and retention positively impact a company’s bottom line.

CUSTOM-MADE ORTHOTICS TO SUPPORT TORONTO PROFESSIONALS AND MICROMOBILITY USERS
EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
Custom orthotics for Toronto e-riders help relieve pain and prevent overuse injuries during your rides. Whether you bike, scoot, skate, or ride an EUC or Onewheel, our custom orthotics correct abnormal foot function, improve riding posture, and provide shock absorption for maximum comfort and performance on and off the PEV.
Our occupational prescription orthotics can help reduce injuries and disability by correcting foot dysfunction and gait abnormalities, provide pain relief for a wide variety of lower limb symptoms, and improve performance at work. Custom orthotics are the obvious choice for professionals who are on their feet all day, especially if they stand or walk on hard surfaces for prolonged periods.
From dress shoes to sneakers and from high heels to flats and boots, our custom orthotics easily fit into all of your footwear, so that you do not have to compromise on support and comfort. Whether you are going for a drink after work, walking your dog, or enjoying the great Canadian outdoors, orthotic therapy has never looked and felt better! Soft and toasty in the winter, dry and cool in the summer.
Whether you are a dental professional, manual therapist, veterinarian, first responder, or any other urban professional who spends a lot of time on their feet, when you come home from work you should experience the same therapeutic support and comfort that you get from your custom foot orthotics at work. If you are a professional who works from home, our lounge line is also a great choice of footwear for the home office.
You don’t need to be a professional athlete to reap the benefits of custom foot orthotics. If you need orthotics for walking, you most definitely need orthotics for athletic activities. Custom foot correction for athletes or weekend warriors enhances performance while better stability and control helps decrease injuries. Whatever sports you enjoy, we have an orthotic for it.
Accommodative custom orthotics are for sensitive and painful feet, especially for patients suffering from arthritis, diabetes, or peripheral neuropathy. The application of a soft or accommodative custom foot orthotic (i.e. constructed from a non-corrected model of your feet) helps decrease shearing of your feet within your shoes while absorbing shock to your lower limbs and back.
