Selecting Standard Aurelka® Protective Shoes:

In order to take measurement of the foot, follow the instruction below:

1. Standing on a piece of paper, draw the contour of foot circumference.

In order to take the contour of the foot correctly, you should hold the pencil vertically – at the right angle to the paper.

2. Take the measurement (either in inches or in centimeters) of the distance between the extreme points in the drawing (a & b).

3. Select the correct shoe size for each foot as per the charts.

Selecting Personal Corrections for AurelkaORTO® Footwear and Insoles:

1. Make measurements according to the procedure described in the A.

2. Make pictures and a movie as per the following guidance.

Guidance for Taking Photos and Make a Movie for Custom Made Shoes

Custom-made shoes require the proper diagnosing of a problem.  We provide a complimentary diagnosing service for our customers. In order to make it, we need to get the right materials from you:
– pictures
– movie
that will show the nature of possible deformities to be corrected.

1. Taking Pictures
Pictures should be taken from a distance of 3 feet in good light. They should show a close-up of the feet themselves from the front and back, photos should also show the knees and hips (front, side, and back).

2. Making a Movie
A movie should be made when keeping a camera at the height of the child’s pelvis (for an adult filming it is a kneeling or squatting position) from the side of the incident light. It is best if the child walks independently on panels, tiles, or hard carpeting. The knees and hips must be visible. We observe (while making the movie) the barefoot walk and in shoes in which the child walks best. The length of the video should be between 20 and 30 seconds.

Please see the attached sample pictures and the movie.

Selecting Custom Made Orthopedic Footwear

Custom-made footwear is always manufactured on the basis of individual foot parameters.
That is why, apart from the indication of the desired correction to be performed in the shoe, the order should include the following data:

    • Foot/orthosis contour:

    • Joint circumference (A)

    • Instep circumference (B)

    • Heel circumference (C)

    • Ankle circumference (D)


Foot Contour Measurement:

  • Foot/orthosis length (E)

  • Joint width (F)

  •  Heel width (G) 

In individual cases, taking additional measurements is recommended; these may include:

  • Toe circumference:

  • Toe height (H)

  • Height of the great toe joint (I)

  • Height of the arch of the foot (J)

Measurements for Aurelka® Shoe-Orthosis

In the case of ordering Aurelka® Shoe-Orthosis additional measurements are required:

Height of the upper (K)

Calf circumference at the top of the upper (L)

Calf circumference at the widest point (M)

Height of the widest point of the calf (N)

Height of the rigid part (heel counter) (O)

When taking the measurement, you should remember the following important aspects:

  • Another person’s assistance during the measurement may prove useful.

  • The measurements should be taken in the erect position, while in the case of people who cannot walk – in a seated position with a right angle under the knee.

  • Each foot should be measured separately.

  • In the case of footwear for already obtained insoles, the measurement should be taken with the insole placed under the foot.

  • In the case of footwear for orthoses, the measurement should be taken while wearing the orthosis.

  • Taking the measurement of foot circumference in orthoses, one should include straps, closures, hinges adding to the footwear’s size.

  • The measurements should be provided in absolute terms, i.e. they should not be approximated, nor increased at one’s discretion — in the shoe design process, all the necessary approximations will be included.

  • Frontal and lateral photographs of the feet should be taken and attached to the order.

Footwear for Orthoses

1031 Model with an open heel and BOA® closure system help the disabled to use the footwear in the simplest and safest way in their everyday life. The system facilities single-hand operation and ensures even tension across the upper along the entire foot, thus providing perfect-fit footwear.

These shoes were designed specifically for children required to wear orthoses in order to enable them to put on and take off their footwear smoothly.
