The appropriate size shoe for the foot is selected, and then the length of heel extension required to position the toe level on the ground is determined. The centre of balance needs to be forward of the end of the heel extension and the width close to the width of the foot or adequate to provide medio-lateral stability. Often a heel extension half to three quarters the length of the foot will be sufficient to do the job. Additional plastic can be welded to the extension after fitting to give extra length if more is required.
