Total Removable Depth - 9/16th”
Genext Performance Footwear is the next generation in the evolution of our brand. Our company mission statement to provide accommodative and adaptive footwear remains our goal. Our challenge is to meet the ever changing specifications for orthopedic shoe designs with what we call Fantastically Functional Footwear™.
The Genext Performance Footwear line is designed with considerable extra depth for a total of 9/16ths of an inch which allows for a truly custom depth fit. A combination of a high quality Genext insole 1/4 inch deep, along with two other removable spacers, one at 1/8th inch and one at 3/16ths, enables the practitioner multiple options when addressing various pathologies like leg length discrepancy (LLD). LLD is considered the root cause of lower back pain where the hip alignment needs to be adjusted. This is a very common cause of pain for people who work on their feet all day and have LLD.
The extra depth feature is also designed to accommodate functional orthotics as well as most bracing and ankle / foot orthoses (AFO’s.)
The Genext line has also been approved for code A5500 for diabetics and are covered under Medicare’s Therapeutic Shoes for Diabetics program.
The Genext Slip Resistant rubber outsole combined with the orthopedic design of the upper provides the solution for people who suffer from working on their feet all day. The depth orthopedic upper built on a wide stable last to ensure added balance and control combined with the slip resistant outsole, minimizes the risk of fall considerably.
