About Us

As the No. 1 trusted orthotics specialist and comfort shoe specialist business in San Diego County for over 20 years and running, The Active Foot Store has been a leading manufacturer of custom-fabricated orthotics utilizing the most advanced technological systems and state-of-the-art materials to produce the finest orthotics anywhere.

Our mission is to ensure that our customers find not only the orthotics that resolve their primary issue but also the footwear that fits their lifestyle and individual needs. It is our goal to help each customer select the right fit and style. After all, a great shoe doesn’t just function well; it also looks good. Just because you have specialized footwear requirements doesn’t mean you should ever have to settle, and that’s why we offer the largest inventory of shoes that are suitable for comfort and that accommodate all of your custom orthotics. Our service areas include University City, La Jolla, and all throughout San Diego County.

We stand above the rest due to our expert staff members who follow a specific evaluation process, which will take into account the shape of your feet, your activity level, and all therapeutic needs you may have. Because feet come in all shapes and sizes, we take the time necessary to find exactly what you need to look and feel great. We often spend a full hour or more with each customer, working tirelessly until we find the perfect fit. We take pride in accommodating a variety of situations, including hammertoes, bunions, and low or high arches. We also specialize in therapeutic shoes and orthotic solutions for people with diabetes, and we are an approved Medicare supplier.

Our products are not limited to footwear. We also offer specialty socks, pads, cushions, and unique products for arch support. While you’re here, you can even enjoy a relaxing pedicure. We’re located in the Kearny Mesa area, and we work with people throughout San Diego County and California. Visit us today, and discover what we can do for you.
