What are the best insoles for your feet?

In this article find out what are the best insoles that will give you the best support, protection, shock absorption and for more comfortable feet!

To know exactly what are the best orthotics for you it is important to know how your feet work and how orthotics should work. Arches are dynamic in structure and are not in a fixed position. With two arches in your feet, the first and most apparent arch being the longitudal arch the second is the transverse arch. The transverse arch lies across the mid foot. Some people think that there is another arch of the foot the metatarsal arch across the ball of the foot however this arch does not exist. There is actually no need for an arch across the ball of the foot because metatarsal heads can bear their own weight however if pressure and weight becomes too much damage can occur to the metatarsal area. You can buy metatarsal pads to elevate some of the pressure off the metatarsals.

Some other misconceptions about feet include fallen and high arches with many thinking that these problems are the main causes to pain and injury. However fallen or high arches do not pose a problem so long as the function of the foot is correct whilst walking this is because how the foot functions is far more important than the actual structure of your arches.

It is actually when the foot is pronated that problems such as pain and injury arise. This is why wearing foot orthotics is so important because they can help to improve the overall foot function. When buying orthotic insoles it is best to find a pair that allows for subtalar joint pronation which helps with your feet’s natural shock absorption as your feet make contact with the ground. Stable support is also needed to act a rigid lever when you shift weight as you walk. Insoles help to realign and correct imbalances and instabilities in your feet that can affect foot function. With in-built arch support that give your feet just the right amount of support ie not too much and not too little. Plus with added shock absorption you just cannot go wrong!

  1. I’ve had orthodics made they just are not comfortable I still have discomfort in my ball if the foot I wonder if these will give me a little more relief.
    • The "arch support insoles for plantar fasciitis and flat feet" have been designed to provide optimum level of support and work to correct the function of your feet, whilst custom insoles often can over support your feet or even support the feet in the position causing the foot pain making things worse. Our insoles may take a while for your feet to get used to the support this is known as the "break in period" but once your feet get used to them you shouldn't have any problems. With the Nuovahealth money back guarantee if the insoles do not help with your foot pain then you can simply send them back to get a full refund, no questions asked! Hope you have a nice day :)
