Foot pain stinks, sometimes literally.
Whether you're a walker, runner or somewhere in between, chances are you spend a lot of time on your feet day to day and have experienced some type of foot pain. Our feet absorb the impact of every step we take. As the foundation of the skeletal system, an injury to your feet can lead to pain elsewhere in the body like your ankles, shins, hips, and all the way up to your back, shoulders, and neck.
So, how do you take better care of your feet? After you've been fitted for shoes and picked up a few pairs of non-cotton socks, insoles are the next step in enhancing the fit, feel and function of your feet in shoes. First things first, you might be wondering, what is an insole?
An insole is a removable layer inside a shoe that provides extra comfort or support. Whenever you walk, run or stand, most of your weight is on the insole of the shoe. Insoles, like Superfeet, come in many shapes, sizes, and support levels that are designed to fit a variety of different foot types.
The standard cushion liners that come in shoes today offer very limited cushioning and support. Superfeet insoles, our top selling brand, provide extra protection and comfort for almost every type of foot and activity. Superfeet help improve the fit of your footwear by adapting the flat 2 dimensional midsole of shoes to your 3 dimensional feet.
The 3 keys to all Superfeet Insoles (via Superfeet)
1. Structured Heel Cup: Encapsulates and positions the soft tissue under the heel, maximizing natural shock absorption.
2. Rearfoot Support: The support you feel towards the back of your arch and the front of your heel is the distinct Superfeet shape stabilizing the rearfoot.
3. Firm Stabilization: A firm foam layer and a stabilizer cap combine to create the supportive shape that Superfeet are famous for.
