First, why choose a personalized shoe?
Our shoe selections offer unique features such as comfort, fit, durability, quality, function and compatibility with orthotics that other brands simply cannot provide. Personalizing is how we fit your foot with length, width, shims, stretching, grinding and custom orthotics. The result is luxury for your feet.

Laurentian Chief Moccasins
Native Americans didn’t like the shoes of European settlers because they “blinded the eyes in their feet.” With hard-soled shoes they lost their sensation for the ground. They relied on foot sensation and foot feel to guide their bodies balance and movement, even in the dark where you literally can’t see!
Laurentian Chief moccasins combined with our custom orthotics restore the sensation of walking on natural Earth, even if you’re walking on hard man-made surfaces. This moccasin/orthotic combination gives you the best feel for the ground in our urban environment and virtually everyone should experience this, “grounded feeling” regularly.
Wearing moccasins helps you stretch your calf muscles, because they have no heel raise. The level-heel moccasin encourages stretching the calf a little every step and its the most effective way. Instead of an exercise, it becomes a lifelong routine and form of movement.
Laurentian Chief moccasins easily accommodate orthotics and have a stitched-on waterproof sole. They are hand sewn by Canadian Indians in a variety of natural leathers.
Tips for wearing moccasins:
• When wearing a moccasin, pay particular attention to maintain heel contact until the very finish of a step, with increased ankle and knee bend. Walk like you have suction cups on your heels. Feel the calf stretch each step.
• Begin wearing moccasins with a break-in period. The calf muscles need time to stretch-out. Start with ten minutes the first day and work up to several hours.

Footform Performance sells custom ski boots from DALEBOOT USA.
Sore feet have been synonymous with downhill skiing ever since the advent of plastic ski boots. Randall Barna, C.Ped. of Footform Performance, combined his expertise in the ski industry and orthotics with DALEBOOT USA, a company he knew and respected, to solve the problem.
Skiboots and skiing put more stress and strain on your feet than anything else. The necessity of customizing is obvious for anyone with feet that are abnormal. Other than unusual feet, high performance skiers demand custom fit boots because they ski better.
At Footform Performance we start with a preview appointment to examine your feet, determine if custom DALEBOOT shell modifications are needed, and analyze orthotic footbed needs. The next step is a second fitting appointment to custom form a DALEBOOT liner to your feet with a heat and pressure process. Included in this process is stance balancing analysis and alignment. The result is a custom ski boot that is so comfortable you barely believe you’re in ski boots!
Randall Barna, C.Ped began fitting ski boots and working in ski shops thirty-five years ago. He owned and operated Randy Barna’s Ski Shop in Bend, Oregon for ten years before opening his Pedorthic practice and has fitted boots with virtually every customizing system and process that has come along. Randall stakes his reputation on DALEBOOT, they’ve proven to be the best!
