Superstep products were some of the first over-the-counter foot orthotics introduced to the orthopedic market. Developed by KLM Labs in the early 1990s, the Superstep shells were the first of their kind. All foot orthotics existing in the market up until that point had been custom made to the molds of patients' feet. As one of the leading manufacturers of custom foot orthotics in the United States, KLM Labs had the opportunity to study thousands of patients' casts, and their resulting foot orthotics. By using 3D imaging software to analyze these shapes, KLM determined the average foot orthotic by shoe size. These Superstep shapes were made into injection molds so the orthotic shells could be manufactured at a lower cost, resulting in a more affordable price for the end user.
Further study of over 133,000 pairs of orthotics shows that certain foot shapes exist more often than others. Of the thousands of shapes that were documented, 99 shapes occurred 70% of the time. These shapes became the
