ABOUT
Suede is an extremely thin, synthetic top cover material that sits on the superior surface of the orthotic, covering the entire heel cup and extending to a desired length: mets, sulcus or toes. The synthetic nature of this material mimics natural suede’s thinness, flexibility and attractive appearance but also adds durability, stain protection, odor resistance, and is more water-resistant than natural materials.

It is commonly selected for dress devices; however, suede is extremely floppy and does not provide any cushioning. As a top covering, suede covers any modifications or additional materials requested and comes into direct contact with a patient’s plantar foot.

Note: Pairing suede with a cushioned layer (e.g. Myolite) will provide more comfort if desired.
