MI­LAN My Shoe Doc­tor owner Mi­lan Uskokovic was trav­el­ling in Europe when he first dis­cov­ered Easy­fit arch sup­port or­thotics at an or­thopaedic expo.

“I had taken cheap shoes on my trip and they were mak­ing my feet sore but the Easy­fit arch sup­port or­thotics turned them into com­fort­able shoes,” he said.

He is now the sole im­porter of Easy­fit arch sup­port or­thotics. “Both my wife and I suf­fer from plan­tar fasci­itis and as a nurse it has been dif­fi­cult for her to walk and stand for long pe­riod of time,” cus­tomer Dal­ibar Acimic said. “Since wear­ing the Easy­fit arch sup­port, we haven’t had any more prob­lems with plan­tar fasci­itis and have found the dif­fer­ence amaz­ing.”

Mi­lan has a de­gree in engi­neer­ing with a post­grad­u­ate qual­i­fi­ca­tion in or­thopaedics and was a prac­tis­ing po­di­a­trist and shoe­maker in Croa­tia and Ger­many from 1973, as well as in Aus­tralia since 1983.

All prof­its from the or­thotics go to Helplink Aus­tralia In­cor­po­rated, a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to help­ing peo­ple over­seas and in Aus­tralia.

In WA, the or­gan­i­sa­tion is spe­cial­is­ing in men’s health through Men’s Sheds and sim­i­lar projects.
