Dr. Lehman approves Shoe Gummi

Shoe Gummi is the most innovative orthotic to relieve foot stress in high heeled shoes that I have seen in my 31 years of practice.

It unloads the forefoot and medically protects the foot and takes stress off ones back and hips.It also allows one to wear shoes for a longer period of time - safely.

Shoe Gummi medically protects your foot from over stress when wearing heels. No other medical device protects the foot as safely, and evens the pressure across the foot decreasing the stress on the back, hips, and knees. 

Shoe Gummi also neutralizes the center of gravity transferring stress posteriorly from the metatarsals to the mid foot.
