         Step Forward in Australia


Step Forward orthotics have been manufactured in USA since 1974. They were introduced to Australia in 2004. Since then thousands upon thousands of pairs have been fitted to Australian feet by doctors and therapists, at shows and other events and direct from Step Forward Australia.


The sales of Step Forward in Australia and many other countries around the world was discontinued in 2021 due to increasing quality and supply problems along with diminishing support from the manufacturer. Step Flex was launched in 2021 to replace Step Forward. It is a joint venture between the people who previously distributed Step Forward in Australia and in Germany. Step Flex orthotics are made from the exact same material (same supplier) and the design is essentially the same but with a few improvements to remove inconsistencies in some of the sizes. The orthotics are now 'Made in Germany' rather than 'Made in USA'. Already, Step Flex has replaced Step Forward in many countries.
