    how long does it take to make custom shoes? i know Mirnyi said he was a 15 years ago, but i highly doubt he goes to a shoe store to buy shoes, so i was wondering how long that process takes for pros

    They usually use custom made orthotics. I know that Roddick has his made by Sole Supports. The website is www.solesupports.com

    Insoles are a different story -- Pros don't wear the stock version of the shoes they endorse. They will be given different versions of the same shoe by their sponsor to use on different surfaces.

    like david sez...many of them use custom orthotics which they just transfer from shoe to shoe. I had great success with www.customshoeinserts.com where you get to deal with a real doctor. we discussed my problems and he created orthotics for me that tremendously helped to vanquish some very chronic and nasty achilles tendonitiis in both of my legs.
