California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. - See more at:

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following: Users can visit our site anonymously. Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can easily be found on the page specified above.

How does our site handle Do Not Track signals?

We honor Do Not Track signals and Do Not Track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.


We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old. Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.


We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

Need Help?
  • Good to know
  • Medical Questions
  • How do I know which orthotics are right for me?

    Our custom orthotics are based on your specific needs whether it is for everyday use, work or any sport activity. Simply choose the type, according to your activity and we will design & produce the perfect pair for you, based on your footprints and any other details you provide. Our live chat agents are also available on our website to help guide you through the selection process if needed.

  • What's the price range?

    Upstep's custom orthotics, which are designed by a top podiatrist, are priced between $189 - $239 , while medical practitioner designed custom orthotics are usually priced between $300-$600

  • Are they made to the actual shape of my foot?

    Yes. Each one of our orthotics is designed with you in mind. We use your footprint, as well as the information you provide during the ordering process. This includes your foot condition, your activities and any other details you may wish to include.

  • What if they don't work for me?

    Our customers happiness is our top priority. It is important to understand that due to the unique nature of custom orthotics, sometimes they may need adjusting to get them just right for you. We stand behind our product and want you to be happy. We offer a risk-free, 60 Day money back guarantee! If you’re not satisfied, we can make any adjustments or simply return them within 60 days for a full refund!

  • Can I wear them in any shoe?

    Most orthotics will fit more than one type of shoe as shown in the product page. However, don’t expect a pair made for hiking to fit your favourite ‘night out on the town’ elegant shoes.

  • What do we do for returning customer

    It is much easier to order extra pairs as the scan of your foot is kept on record for 5 years meaning that you can have the confidence to get extra pairs for any shoe or sport

  • Why do custom orthotics cost more than off the shelf insoles?

    This is just like comparing an off the peg suit against a made to measure one. The craftsmanship that goes into our orthotics means that cost are increased accordingly but the also that the fit and quality are excellent.

  • I am on my feet all day - do you have a solution?

    We know that if you are on your feet all day you need extra help. If your job has you standing all day, we will combine the design and materials specifically for you and the demands of your occupation.

  • Sport specific orthotics - what makes them so special?

    We combine design and materials with in an depth knowledge of sports biomechanics to make the ultimate sports orthotic for every sport. Every sport design has specific elements that help the foot perform its best.

  • Do your orthotics help any foot problems?

    Our podiatrist is able to make orthotics for nearly all foot problems. You will see a list all the most common ones when ordering your own orthotics and you will be able to tell us more about your problem if needed.

  • What should I do if I don’t have a diagnosis?

    Don’t worry. Just let us know where it hurts and we will help you get you the right solution. During the order process you will have the opportunity to show us where it hurts using a simple drawing of the foot.

  • Can my own Doctor’s advice or prescription be added?

    Yes Of course! At Upstep it is possible . we will even communicate with your Doctor if needed to get the prescription right.

  • What else can I be doing to help treat the problem?

    Supportive shoes, exercises and many other treatment approaches have all been shown to help and a combination of 2 or 3 seems to work best of all. That is why we offer exercises along with our orthotics as this gives good long term success.

  • What shoes are best?

    Any thing with a small heel tends to help most foot conditions as it helps to relieve the tension through the Achilles tendon. However comfort is also very important. A good rule is that anything that has similar ‘feel’ to a good pair of sports sneakers is ideal as they are well designed to help improve foot mechanics.
