Send your shoes to Project Heel headquarters for installation on one pair of shoes. Also includes a second set of orthotics with an install kit.Install Instructions
Install yourself: It is recommended to pick a shoe that allows the tongue to flip up and access the forefoot of the shoe (Billy Footwear, Converse) but any shoe will work. Two holes will have to be poked through the sole of the shoe to secure the orthotic with two screws.
We install: After ordering, send your shoes to Project Heel Headquarters and we will happily install and ship your shoes to you. Just buy a new pair of shoes and have them shipped directly here to save on shipping or send a pair you already have.
Hi my name is Dr. PJ Morrison. I graduated from Elon University's Physical Therapy program in 2009 and I am the inventor of the Project Heel’s external shoe orthotic. I am currently a Doctor of Physical Therapy in North Carolina.
I have always loved helping people and solving problems. I am honored to be able to help you and your child with a problem that no one has been able to solve.
The idea for the orthotic came to me when I had a child come in for Physical Therapy because they were walking on their toes. The child could stand with their feet flat but went up on their toes when walking. Nothing needed to be stretched or strengthened.
I had never had a patient who toe walked. I went home to search for shoes or braces that would help. All I found were stories of how nothing helped. Stories of children with sore feet, children getting bullied, frustrated parents and big bulky ankle foot orthosis that did not work.
I put myself into their shoes and thought to myself "How would I stop myself from toe walking?" I figured a small round object toward the front of my shoe that would be hard to balance on, located in the right spot and the correct height would prevent toe walking. I made my first prototype and it worked. The child went from 100% toe walking to 0% instantly. The idea of Project Heel was born.
