Even the 'best' orthotic-friendly shoes or insoles can damage your feet if fitted wrongly.
At Footkaki – we are Professional Shoe Fitters. We will only sell you a pair of shoes or insoles if it’s suitable for your size and feet type.
If you’re looking for high fashion shoes – we recommend looking somewhere else… we’re just a friendly little shoe shop working hard to give people from all walks of life access to professional shoe fitting.
By visiting Footkaki, you will receive professional fitting advice from Owen the Pedorthist and his team of Professional Shoe Fitters. You will learn what works for your feet, and be fitted for comfortable shoes and insoles that keep them healthy. We will never recommend the most expensive stuff to you; only the most suitable and comfortable footwear for your feet type, lifestyle, and budget.
Got foot problems? Don’t worry – we can match you with the right footwear for managing conditions like Arch Pain, Bunions, Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Flat Feet, Claw Toes, Hammer Toes, and Diabetic Feet.
If we diagnose you with a foot problem that needs further medical attention, we’ll definitely refer you to a qualified and trusted Podiatrist in Singapore’s hospitals, polyclinics, and private practices.
Many of our honestly priced shoes already come with orthopedic insoles – so don’t worry. Unlike pushy “customised” insoles shops, we don’t pressure you to pay more than you should. Especially not when your feet are in pain!
Now that we've cleared that up,
why not book a FREE appointment below?

What Goes On During A Fitting Session
Step 1: Measurements
No two feet are exactly alike. Using a Brannock (professional foot measure), we will find perform an accurate measure of your foot length and width.
Foot Arch Types
Do you have low, medium, or high arches? Let’s find out with our trusty Foot Scanner! We’ll take a digital image of pressure distribution under your feet, and explain how to balance it all out.
Are you a Pronator or Supinator? There’s nothing wrong with being either – so don’t let anyone make you think it’s a condition. We’ll check the way you walk, and find the right shoes and insoles to match your walking style.
Step 2: Assessment
Sometimes – kakis don’t know that they have certain foot conditions which can cause long-term problems. We’ll check your feet for these conditions (e.g. bunions, corns, calluses, claw toes, plantar fasciitis) and let you know.
Don’t worry – we’re honest. If you have a condition that requires further medical attention, we’ll point you to the right medical professionals to see in the Polyclinics, Hospitals, or Private Clinics.
Lifestyle and Use
To be frank – we believe in the quality and features of our shoes and insoles. And we want to make sure that you get the most out of them.
So we’ll be kay-poh a bit, and ask questions about your regular lifestyle. That way, we will be able to advise you on the most suitable shoes and/or insoles to fit your daily activities.
Feet Care Advice
Once we know enough about your feet and lifestyle, we’ll be lor-sor a bit and provide you with professional advice on how to pick the right shoes and insoles for your feet type.
It’s part of our mission to build greater awareness of foot health – so bear with us! We’ll explain how different types of shoes and insoles can help you walk more comfortably without causing long term problems.
Step 2: Shoe Fitting
After Steps 1 & 2 – our shoe fitting skills kick into action!
Using our expert knowledge – we’ll scurry around our little store picking the most suitable shoes or insoles for your feet and needs. And yes, we know our shoes pretty well.
More expensive does not mean better. It’s about choosing what’s right for you and your budget. If you want to buy a pair of shoes from us that doesn’t suit your foot profile… sorry la, we just won’t sell it to you. 😛
Try Before You Buy
By now, we would have narrowed down the shortlist of shoes and insoles to a list of best selections. The only thing left for you to do is to:
- Try them on and walk around,
- Check yourself out in the mirror,
- Choose which ones you would like to buy.
That’s it! But wait, there’s something special we can do for you…
No two feet are exactly alike – and in the same way, no two pairs of shoes are the same, or perfectly designed to suit each foot. Hence, it is impossible to guarantee a 100% fit. Especially in situations where Kakis have different individual foot sizes, uneven leg length, and other quirks.
But don’t worry. We can perform modifications to your chosen insoles or shoes, so that each individual foot is catered for. Depending on what needs to be done, we will expand or tighten the shoe to get closer to that 100% fit.
This service is complimentary for shoes and insoles purchased from us (excluding cost of adjustment accessories).
