About Boulder Orthotics
Bob Egeland, C. Ped.
Board Certified Pedorthist
I am lucky to have been born and raised in Boulder, Colorado. During High School I worked at the original Mountain Sports in Boulder, fitting hiking boots and teaching Nordic Skiing. I continued my footwear career working for a major hiking boot company in sales, design and fit training for 25 years.
After my Pedorthic education at Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine, I worked in private practice and as technical consultant to Doctors for a national orthotic lab.
I am privileged to be part of the MasterFit University instructor corps that travels throughout the United States teaching Ski Boot fitting, modification and insole fabrication to other professionals.
As an avid skier, hiker, and cyclist, it is a personal thrill to help people be comfortable and improve their performance in footwear of all types.
Heather Van Gilder
Master Boot Fitter
I grew up in Colorado gazing at the beautiful mountainsides. I started working in the snow sport industry at an early age. During my young adult life, I started selling gear while playing in the outdoors; the more I learned about boot fitting the more I realized it was a good fit for me. After college I worked at Larry’s Bootfitting for nine years and later at Neptune Mountaineering as head boot fitter for four years. As an avid skier I understand the importance of proper boot fit. Helping people’s feet feel better and getting them properly aligned so they can continue enjoying any activity that they love is very gratifying.
As I continue to study Pedorthics, I am very fortunate to be working with, and learning from Bob and his wonderful clientele.
