Did you know? More women than ever before are joining the Chiropractic profession. In fact, in a field that was once almost completely male-dominated, some of today’s Chiropractic graduating classes are nearly a 50-50 male/female split.
On this International Women’s Day, Foot Levelers honors women the world over, with a special nod to those women Chiropractors who have dedicated their careers to helping patients lead healthier, happier lives. Here are just a FEW of the women DCs who have, or are, shaping the profession, many of whom we’re proud to call “partner.”

WE’RE VEGAS-BOUND, BABY! WITH A NEW KIOSK, NEW PRODUCTS, AND A NEW MASCOT – IT’S FOOT LEVELERS’ BIGGEST, BOLDEST PARKER EXPERIENCE YET!
Foot Levelers turns 65-years-young this year, and fueled by the birthday spirit the team is headed to Parker Experience Las Vegas, one of Chiropractic’s largest annual events February 23-25 in the stunning Paris Hotel!
This year, attendees will get to handle a number of exciting new products fresh from the Foot Levelers’ R&D and testing labs. Here’s what to expect should you find yourself in Vegas this weekend and wander over for a visit…
- The revolutionary new Foot Levelers Kiosk: For the first time ever, Chiropractors will have the opportunity to experience the revolutionary new kiosk. The ideal digital assistant for the busy Chiropractic practice, the kiosk allows patients to scan themselves for pedal imbalances. Results captured through an easy-to-use touch screen are cloud-based, so doctors can access them from anywhere in the world.
- NEW Vegas™ custom orthotic flip-flop, featuring over 220 brilliant rhinestones, is aptly named for the City of Lights, where it makes its big debut!
- NEW custom orthotic flip-flop colors for spring! In our waterproof styles: Twilight, Twilight Polka and dazzling Shimmer. Our custom orthotic waterproof flip-flops feature a super soft insole for a “walk-on-water” feel; slip-resistant, waterproof outsole; EVA mid-layer to absorb heel shock; and a silky, chafe-free nylon strap.
- New Shoethotics® from many of the world’s finest shoemakers including OluKai, New Balance, Merrell and more!
Plus – meet Archie, Foot Levelers’ beloved mascot. We’re inviting folks to take their pictures with Archie and post to Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and more!
See you in Vegas!
