Peter Morin grew up in Minnesota and has lived in Colorado since 1981. He landed in Steamboat Springs and became an avid skier and outdoorsman. He began modifying Telemark ski boots to increase performance, and the process worked. His interest in footwear and increasing performance grew from there. He was mentored by Randy Merrell, founder of the Merrell shoe company, and learned boot making from him in 1986. Peter built boots that fit great, but some of his customers still had foot issues which took him back to school. He graduated from the Ball State University Pedorthic Program in 1993 and then completed a four year residency with Gerhard Rill. Gerhard graduated from a German University, passing his Masters Program in Orthotics, Fabrication and Bio-mechanics.

What makes Peter Morin unique?
Peter has developed an aggressive approach to solving foot, ankle, knee, hip and back issues. His ability to understand and creatively combine positional diagnosis with it’s effect on human ambulation sets him apart from most Pedorthists. The patient satisfaction process includes an initial evaluation and casting, a dispense/fitting visit with gait evaluation, and a followup visit to allow feedback for any fine-tuning adjustments. All orthotics are made in the on-site lab by Peter for each individual patient.
