Good morning Aaron, I have to thank you for the fresh lease on life the orthotics have given me, it’s like walking on a cloud I’ve been doing 10k a day on my trip so far and I’ve never felt better, I appreciate what you’ve done for me and I look forward to seeing you again for my second set, thank you again you’ve truly changed my life. 


Aaron made me a pair of orthotics five years ago.  They saved my feet, allowed me to keep walking while I waited for a hip replacement, and supported me through the post-operative rehab process. If I walk without them for longer periods of time, I experience back pain that disappears within an hour of once again putting on the shoes I use them in.  Aaron is a masterful technician, but more important, he is a curious and committed professional who builds a product that works magic. I experience complete relief, with no pain whatsoever, when I walk with my orthotics.  I am grateful for his commitment to excellence in his work and for his thoughtful and insightful application of the knowledge he has gained in over 20 years of experience in his field.

Hi Aaron, You are a genius! As planned I went for a run after work yesterday and was able to run 3km with no foot pain, and next to no irritation. I could have kept going but my body was informing me that it hadn’t run for years and was ready to stop.

As I work to increase my mileage and train for the half marathon June4 I will definitely keep you informed but right now it seems like you hit the sweet spot on the first try!


Just to let you know that I’m very happy with my orthotics & pretty much pain free in my feet now.

Many thanks


My brace is perfect and is allowing me to get right back to classic and skate just like pre-injury times. Miraculous, and I feel so lucky. (Yesterday skated Far East, quite fast, and no discomfort).

Tailwind recently made me custom orthotics for cycling shoes. I ride a lot and have a high instep that requires more support than the thin and flat insoles provided with most cycling shoes. I have had expensive custom insoles made before, but they never really fit well in notoriously tight fitting cycling shoes. Aaron at Tailwind nailed it! As a cyclist himself, Aaron fully understood my issues (with both my feet and previous insoles) and produced a product that addressed them all. A perfect fit. Very light and thin while still providing the necessary support. The whole experience was excellent – Tailwind has a lovely office and a workshop producing all manner of impressive braces and orthotics right in house. Highly recommended.

Kris is so happy and excited about these new braces which is simply just fabulous!  It means he will wear them without a fight and the shoes… well he just couldn’t wait to show me how they work!  You made his day and mine too!  Thank-you so much for all you’ve done!   So very professional!!!

Kindest Regards


I am so grateful to Tailwind for supporting my recovery and getting me into a really good pair of knee braces. I’ve been coping with kneecaps that dislocate for several years. After a significant re-injury this spring, I was unable to walk for 2 months. Aaron got me into a brace that gave me the stability I needed to start walking again. Once I’d recovered further, he worked with me to find the best long term braces for my problem. I’d tried several on my own previously, with little success. Aaron is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and knew what to ask and test to find me the right braces. I’m now experiencing more stability than I have in years, thanks to my new braces from Tailwind!

“Aaron is simply the best there is!.. for 15 years i have been going to see him for my orthotic needs, and you simply will never find a more intuitive orthotist, who listens to all your needs and goals..and makes it happen with the orthotics he provides. Their service is GOLD.”

“I saw Aaron after recovering from a broken ankle which turned severely arthritic preventing me from getting outside doing what I enjoy, even walking was a challenge. After Aaron made a custom brace for me, I was back mountain biking and enjoying life again.”
