    Hi

    Any advice with what type of orthotic I can use in a professional rugby player. Presents with Pes Cavus and typical tripod gait, with large mass of keratosis plantar 1st MPJ, bilaterally. He has a history of groin and hamstring injuries. His gait is textbook, supinated but on heel lift, both feet, he pivots on the PMA and pronates to leave the ground on his medial hallux. He also presents with a 1.5cm LLD, R < L.
    His day-to-day shoes present no problem regarding orthotics, but its his rugby boots that are already tight, that he needs and wants mechanical control.
    I was thinking of a shaeffer plate with intrinsic postings for his day-to-day shoes, and an EVA for his rugby boots - but am worried about the functionality of the EVA able to fit into the boots.
    Any suggestions?

    Regards and thanks
