The Pedag Viva Mini is a ¾-length semi-rigid orthotic made by Pedag. Viva Mini has a vegetable tanned leather surface, semi rigid longitudinal and plantar vault support, and a soft metatarsal pad for lateral arch support. In addition, Viva Mini has a shock absorbing heel cushion. Viva Mini incorporates a new, patent pending, “flex” in the orthotic that improves motion control In women’s sizes, Viva Mini is slightly less wide than Pedag’s other ¾ length semi-rigid orthotic, Holiday. This makes it ideal for dressier shoes. Viva Mini is useful for the prevention and relief of foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, generalized metatarsalgia, and Morton’s Neuroma. The longitudinal arch support is suitable for those with normal, moderately high, and moderately low arches. Viva High will provide better support for those with very high arches (hollow foot). Very low arches that are not painful, can try Viva Mini. However, one of our more cushioned, flexible orthotics (DeLuxe, Relax) may be better, especially if your arches are sore and achy. Viva Mini is ideal all shoes and boots, but especially shoes with open toes or with limited toe room. Viva Mini has been awarded the prestigious American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal for promoting foot health. Viva Mini comes with a self Adhesive dot on the heel.
