Custom made therapeutic flip-flops, sandals and slippers
Zlippo is custom-made therapeutic footwear (also known as podiatric footwear) supplied by medical foot specialist like chiropodists and a podiatrist. A Zlippo consists of a specially designed upper and a podiatric sole. The range of Zlippo products includes flip-flops, sandals and slippers, all for people with foot problems.
Before the patients with foot problems were unable to walk in flip-flops, sandals or slippers. Today is it possible thanks to the use of custom-made insoles or tailor-made uppers (leather part of the footwear), which we design and produce with great care.
In order to meet the needs of patients with foot problems wishing to walk in open shoes, the medical shoe specialists in the Netherlands have developed the Zlippo method. Special uppers have been designed that can be individually attached to the custom-made podiatric soles. The result of combining these two pieces are the perfectly fitting flip-flops, sandals and slippers. A most welcomed revolutionary product for the patients with foot problems.
The Zlippo method is now being widely used by podiatrists, who are glad to be able to supply their patients with custom-made flip-flops, sandals and slippers. The method is suitable for people with different types of foot problems, such as heel pain, flat feet or forefoot and midfoot pain. Furthermore, various corrections can be made and pressure spots can be released of patients suffering from sores or ulcers on the diabetic or rheumatic feet.
Podiatric footwear offers also a temporary alternative for orthopedic shoes and enhances motivation for therapy. By applying the custom-made medical treatment and using the Zlippo method, recurrent injuries can be reduced or will be controlled.
The advantages of the Zlippo method:
- The podiatric footwear can be manufactured at short notice
- The patients can create their own flip-flop, sandals or slippers by selecting from the wide range of colour and leather combinations (uppers are produced upon idividual request)
- The design of the Zlippo flip-flops, sandals and slippers is both fashionable and functional
