One Stop Online Service Allows Ordering Custom Golf Orthotics without Leaving Home

(New Jersey, New York) – Upstep (, founded by Israeli entrepreneurs, is launching a comprehensive online service for golfers to buy custom made orthotics designed for their specific needs by world-class podiatrists. Prices represent 30%-50% savings over the direct purchase from podiatrists.

The Upstep custom golf orthotics allow golfers to avoid foot pain while enhancing their energy, supporting natural movement, stabilizing posture, and improving their dynamics and enjoyment of the game.

“The Upstep Orthotics are the finest orthotics I have ever worn,” said Bill Glasson, 7-Time PGA Tour Tournaments winner and a customer of Upstep. “I’ve been wearing custom orthotics for over twenty years. Having had many surgeries, including neck and back fusions and most recently bilateral hip replacement, I am very sensitive to imbalances in my lower body. The Upstep Orthotics immediately gave me relief of nagging back pain and knee issues.”

Glasson continued: “As a player and instructor, I am required to be on my feet for up to 14 hours a day. This would not be possible without my Upstep Orthotics. I’ve been able to resume my playing career thanks to my orthotics. The importance of foot care is very underrated and everyone can benefit from these great orthotics.”

Upstep was founded by Limor Katz, Aviad Raz, and Oren Raz, with an investment of $3 million. The company lets customers anywhere in the U.S. get fitted with top of the line custom orthotics. Delivery is quick and the service guarantees full customer satisfaction.

Through the Upstep service, orders are made on two available platforms. On the online private platform, customers order the orthotics online and receive the footprint kit at home. The customer then follows the simple instructions to make a foot imprint and then send it back to the company. Upstep uses 3D technology to scan the footprint. The orthotics are custom designed based on each customer’s unique specifications. The technology also offers a platform that takes various work or athletic factors into account in order to meet the individual customer’s needs.

The second purchasing platform utilizes golf pros and retailers. The golf retail platform enables a "hands on" fitting process, where the golf coach, pro or fitter are involved and aid with their input and their student's foot impression.

The orthotics, produced by advanced manufacturing methods with innovative materials, are sent directly to the customer’s home. The standard price of Upstep custom golf orthotics is $239.

Upstep presented its custom golf orthotics at the PGA Merchandise Show 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The Upstep orthotics display attracted great interest and excitement from golf players and industry workers, including golf pros, golf directors, coaches, and key people in the golf industry.

To expand its foothold in the golf industry in the United States, Upstep has appointed Oren Geri as its in-house golf expert. Geri is a former Israeli golf champion who is familiar to the American public thanks to his participation in two seasons of the reality show Big Break.

“As an innovative custom orthotics company operating in the United States, we saw early on that we were winning significant business volume from the golf community,” said Limor Katz, co-founder and marketing manager at Upstep. "To penetrate this market, our chief podiatrist, Phillip Wells, carried out comprehensive research that included feedback from players and coaches on the pro circuit. As a result, we gently inserted golf enhancing elements into our design, while maintaining the comfort and customization platform. Upstep’s golf enhancing elements help deal with common physical problems related to the swing, allowing players to feel more comfortable in their shoes, experience greater energy, and improve their game.”

There was a time in my youth when I felt immortal.

I was strong. Healthy. Full of life.

Maybe like you, I felt like I could conquer the world.

Every day I'd wake up, bursting with energy. Feeling unstoppable.

I'd go out and exercise full out. Or put in a long day at work. Or go on a weekend adventure with friends to the mountains.

And at the end of the day? I'd still feel REALLY good.

Tired, but in a good, relaxing, "hit the sack" kinda way.

Until one day, it happened.

I was getting out of the car and for some reason, I twisted my back.

It immediately seized up. Hunched over with hand on my hip, my muscles spasmed as if to protect it.

The pain was sharp. Deep. Crippling.

That was a day I'll never forget. That was the day I realized... I was human.

Getting out of the car was something I'd done a thousand times before. Why did it happen THAT day, I wondered?

I've replayed it a thousand times in my head, but I'll never know.

What I do know is that day set off a chain reaction of events.

Over the years, more unexpected bouts of pain. Days and even weeks off work.

Make-you-feel-like-a-zombie pain pills.

Physical therapy. Alternative therapy. Chiropractic.

Days of "bed rest" watching Jerry Springer.

Oh, I hated that term "bed rest." It's so not me.

Ever since that fateful day, every so often out of the blue, I'll tweak my back again and relive that fateful day as well as the weeks afterward, nursing it back to health.

Until recently.

While I was experiencing my most recent painful bout, one of my business partners took pity and shared with me a wonderful natural method that not only relieves back pain in less than 20 minutes, but there's a strong likelihood you'll never have to deal with it again.

Imagine that!

I tried it and amazingly, it worked! Within just a few minutes, my back magically "unlocked." The relief was like a warm south Pacific wave, relaxing every muscle in my body.

After wasting thousands of dollars on useless remedies, days and weeks off work, I was FINALLY FREE from pain.

I'll be honest. As I've grown older, my experience with back pain has humbled me. When I look at it the right way, maybe it WAS a good thing, because I no longer take my health and body for granted.

But the great thing is I'm back doing the things I love. Without giving second thought to whether my back will "go out." With this unique method, it's been months since I've experienced even the smallest inkling of pain...

All I can say I wish I'd know about this method sooner. But I thank my lucky stars I found it when I did.

To your health,
