My new shoes are great. I managed to walk from North Steyne to South Steyne and back on Saturday. This is quite an unbelievable improvement.

I would like to say that your service and particularly your knowledge of feet and foot problems is outstanding and I felt in good hands when I was referred to you. You took the time to understand my issues with a unique problem with my right foot being a 3cm hole in the sole of my right foot created by a plantar wart which had been x-rayed out when I was 12 years old (I am now 49). The issue is that the hole in my right foot keeps building up scar tissue and consequently this feels like I am walking on a small rock. In protecting my foot from the pain I have been compensating by clawing my toes and walking on other parts of my foot and this has been developing problems in other parts of my body (my left ribs had popped out) and my knees and bones in my right leg and hips were always sore at night. I have been wearing my new orthotics that Stewart designed for me for 8 months now and continue to see my podiatrist once a month to have the scar tissue parred away and she tells me the hole is getting smaller nowbecause the orthotics have taken the pressure off the area of concern. So thank you for your advise and great service. I can highly recommend you to anyone with foot problems.

I have been going to Stewart Levy for my daughters foot problems since January 2006. Stewart had been recommended to me by my Osteopath and I have been very happy with the service I have received from him. Stewart has shown himself to be a very experience and caring foot specialist and comfort is one of his key priorities. I often have conversations with mums at school regarding orthotics and many of them are very impressed with what I have to tell them regarding my daughters orthotics. The materials Stewart uses for her orthotics are comfortable and adaptable where many orthotics are very hard, inflexible and cant be modified. My daughter has had her orthotics successfully adjusted several times as she has grown and her needs have changed. I have also recently had my younger daughter have a check up with Stewart and we are going to keep an eye on her as she grows but she does not need orthotics at the present time. Stewart is conscious of the expense involved with shoe modification and I am confident that he does the best for me and my girls. Stewarts qualified, experienced and friendly approach is well worth the drive to see him. I would recommend Stewart to anyone, of any age, if they have any concerns regarding their feet.

My Foot Has Completely Healed

I am writing to thank you for the excellent work you did for me in the construction of my Orthotics.  I was having a lot of trouble with one foot in particular and was recommended to you by my Chiropractor, Ric Howard.

Now after one year my foot has completely healed thanks to the support given by my orthotics which I wear all the time.

I would highly recommend Stewart levy and his expertise to anyone incurring similar problems.

Yours faithfully,

Jim Parker ,

Thinking of Getting Back into Golf

I called Stewart Archer my podiatrist and told him how pleased I was that he had recommended you and how successful your advice had been.

After two years, following breaking my leg, searching to find a solution to my shortened leg with orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, podiatrists and chiropractors, I am very grateful for your practical and constructive advice.  The shoes are fine and I am thinking of getting back into golf so I am wondering whether you could do something with my golf shoes!

Again, many thanks.

Yours sincerely

Julia Thompson ,

I am now able to stand all day when required to at work and can walk around without any hip or lower back pain.

I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my orthotics that you have made for me. Twelve months down the track now and I’m never without them. I am now able to stand all day when required to at work and can walk around without any hip or lower back pain. They are comfortable and fit into most of my suitable shoes. Thanks for keeping a check on me, everything is great and well worth the investment for happy feet!

See you soon,

Richard Harper ,

Professional approach and caring attitude with strong after provision service has been a pleasure to receive.

In my experience, Mr. Stewart Levy is an excellent Medical Grade Footwear Practitioner, who has my unqualified recommendation. I went to him following foot surgery for orthotics and the result first time was perfect. I have been wearing the orthotics for the last 2 years and they have done the job as I am pain free and can walk freely over long distances ( 12 Km plus) with no after effects. Mr Levy’s professional approach and caring attitude with strong after provision service has been a pleasure to receive.

I have noticed a huge difference in how my feet feel

Hi Stewart, Just a quick email to let you know how much the orthotics you made have helped over the past 3 months. Since wearing them, I have noticed a huge difference in how my feet feel and recently this was highlighted when I forgot to take them on holidays with me for 2 weeks. I couldn’t believe how much my feel would ache at the end of the day. When I returned home I couldn’t put them in my shoes fast enough. Thank you for all your help with making them and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Michael Mulholland-Licht , BALGOWLAH
I see dozens of patients each year that have spent hundreds of dollars on orthotics that sit in the cupboard because they are painfully uncomfortable. "Many of my patients have enjoyed the benefits of orthotics from Stewart Levy at Custom Foot Australia. These hand made orthotic devices provide enough comfort as well as supportive correction to enable patient compliance. Often fine-tuning or gradual modification is made at subsequent consultations
Ian Chappell , Sydney
On the recommendation of Stewart Levy I began wearing Birkenstock shoes about four years ago. At the time I had been wearing orthotics in both my sports and street shoes for around twenty years to correct a spur problem in both heels. Stewart told me I wouldn’t need to wear orthotics in my streets shoes with Birkenstock and despite my skepticism his prediction has proved to be correct. Not long after that improvement in my footwear Stewart made up some orthotics for my Sports shoes which better reflected the problems I was having with my feet. I have now been wearing those orthotics for around two years and and they are much more practical than the old orthotics I was wearing. They are far more comfortable and durable and have helped correct a major problem I was having with my right foot. I am quite happy to recommend Stewart Levy for his expertise in Corrective Orthopaedic Footwear and Orthotic services.
Delma M. Latimer , Northern Beaches
Mr Stewart Levy, of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, NSW, has been modifying shoes for me for around three years. For many people with pedorthic needs the cost of custom made shoes/boots is prohibitive and availability almost non-existent. Mr Levy provides a much needed service in a field with too few pedorthists of his calibre. The professionalism that he exhibits is outstanding and his knowledge of his craft is extensive. I have a skeletal problem caused by a leg length difference of 7cm which caused severe back and joint pain. Mr Levy’s comprehension of my problem has greatly alleviated by suffering, and his services are invaluable to me.
Ghislaine Bouskila , Northern Beaches
My 3 children have flat foot. I have been taking them to see Stewart for the last 5 years on the recommendation of my osteopath. Stewart has not only educated them on taking care & responsibility for the shoes they wear, (with 3 teenagers it has been quite a humorous exercise!) but he has avoided for them the fatigue, pain and backaches that comes with having flat feet and being active. Their feet are no longer flat and they have been able to participate in their favourite sports without pain. As children always know what is good for them, they never go without wearing their orthotic insoles. Thank you Stewart for your expertise and professionalism.
Sue Wilson , Central Coast. N.S.W.
Stewart Levy has been making my shoes and orthotics, and modifying my built up shoes over a period of 5 years. During this time, I have found him to be very understanding and helpful. He has been a forward lateral thinker with suggestions and ideas he has, in continually improving my lifestyle in the way I walk. I have congenital deformities of the foot and leg, and Stewart has always been very helpful. I find him to be a very honest, sincere and diligent man and would not hesitate in referring any of my friends to him.
