How much do Foot Levelers cost?

The costs of Foot Levelers greatly depends on the type of product you want to purchase as the company offers a variety of options, such as custom orthotics, orthotic shoes and custom flip flops; plus,  aside from the footwear option, the company also offers rehab equipment and pillows.  As there are so many options, the website doesn’t specify the exact pricing; rather, the official website goes into detail about each product and how you can request more information on ordering, but via the FAQ page, they did mention the costs will be dependent upon the qualified health professional you choose as they set the price.  From what we researched, however, the prices seemed to be in the $200 to $400 range without any insurance coverage.

According to most of the descriptions we looked at, the company asks to refer you to a “great local doctor,” who will then help you treat the source of your problem and then request the product best suited for your situation.  If you’re able to find a doctor in your local area, then he or she will take a 3D digital foot scan, a diagnostic tool that’s able to take precise measurements of your feet to help create a customized pair of orthotics designed just for your feet.  Most doctors, from what we noticed, offer a free 3D digital foot scan inside the office.

While the official website didn’t list the pricing, we did find some third-party resources that went into detail as to how much you should be prepared to spend.  For example, this PerfectPatients.com brochure noted the retail price for marathon runners could range anywhere from $202 to as much as $379 retail, but with the 20% discount applied, the costs could drop to as little as $150 to $280 each, with payment plans available for those who couldn’t pay in full.

On this Crossfit.com forum thread, a member who started the thread stated he was quoted $250 for his.  Another forum thread on Bowsite.com noted a $150 to $300 range.

As for insurance coverage, your insurance company may cover a portion of your orthotics, but this will greatly depend on your policy and is not guaranteed — even the company notes this.  In most cases, if you’re able to provide a certificate of medical necessity and your insurance offers this type of coverage on your policy, then they may reimburse you for a portion of your payment.  To be certain, check with your insurance company and/or doctor for more information as to what you will be responsible for.  You can also refer to this insurance billing guide to learn more about how the verification process works.

What’s included in the cost?

According to this page on the official website, each orthotic is designed just for you by using the 3D scans or casts during your exam, and specific corrections, created by hand via one of the company’s highly trained technicians, help you achieve a balanced foundation and stabilized pelvis, helping adjustments “hold” better in general.  With this information and based on your activity levels, your doctor will then be able to determine which model is best for you

All orthotics are created from a premium material — guaranteed or your money back.  Depending on the product you choose, the FAQ states it could include Lambson® leather, the luxury line, or Celliant® for more energy, designed for the InMotion®, the #1 selling orthotic.

Tips to know

Depending on the activity level, these orthotics usually last up to two years, but as mentioned, the company guarantees them for a year.  The company recommends you plan on replacing them every two years.

The company offers a one-year, 100% money back guarantee as well as a limited warranty. The PDF sourced earlier did not that the company asks you to wear your orthotics for at least 60 days to break them in before filing for a full refund.

Since you cannot find the orthotics online and each pair is individually crafted, you will want to use the “find a local doctor tool” on the official website to get started.

If your orthotics are too long for your shoes, then the company recommends trimming them by using the original shoe liner as a stencil and cutting around it.

Water damage and mis-trimmings are not covered by the warranty.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. Carol paid $300 and said: said:

    I am not sure what style mine are, but they are blue and solid.

    Worth it? Oh Yes! Had one knee meniscus surgery, the other would be soon if I didn’t so something.

    I also had nerve pain in one foot from a neuroma, very painful to walk. The other foot was starting to, all from years of walking for a living.

    Started wearing foot levelers and no more pain!

    I walk a mile a day now. My heels on my shoes are no longer worn on one side.

    I don’t ever want to go through knee replacement surgery and I don’t think it will be an issue now.

    Changed my life.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  2. Sue (St. Louis,  Missouri) paid $200 and said:

    Was told they cost $400 each. Had a special for $100 off one pair, but since I bought 2 at the same time I got them for $200 each. They must have a lot of room to negotiate!

    Was it worth it? Yes
