My father first took me to see Mr Tye when I was in primary school because of my flat feet. My father had heard that people with flat feet had problems with running and physical activities and he didn’t want that to happen to me. Mr Tye made custom-made insoles which helped me with my physical activities in school.
When I enlisted for National Service, the prescribed insoles by Mr Tye helped me cope with the increase in physical demands of National Service.
I’m now a working adult and I’m able to live life without worrying about my flat feet. I’m grateful to both my dad and Mr Tye for the support with regards to my flat feet problem throughout this 2 decades!
