Following his convincing win, Novak Djokovic threw many of his personal belonging into the crowd including his tennis racket, shirt, wrist bands and even his shoes. But he kept what was vitally important to him – the foot orthotics he had inside his shoes!! As the video shows, at center court he removed his orthotics from the shoes before he walked back to the sidelines and tossed his shoes into the crowd.

Djokovic and many other tennis players rely on custom foot orthotics to maintain foot comfort. Orthotics correct the mechanical weakness in the feet to enhance performance and prevent foot injury.
