How to reduce the risk of sports injuries with OrthoSole insoles

But are you looking after those two vital pieces of our anatomy that can make or break your training routines – your feet?
If you don’t take steps to keep our lower limbs in check, you could be at an increased risk of sustaining unwanted injuries (and jeopardising your regime as a result).
Thankfully, it’s never been easier to protect your bottom-most assets. Inserting a pair of OrthoSole’s orthotic insoles into your footwear is proven to ease heel impact, relieve key pressure points during movement, reducing the likelihood of foot fatigue and combating the onset of painful sports-related conditions, such as plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.

How do our insoles work?
Our insoles have been designed to help you improve the fit and support of your existing sports shoes with the help of a series of interchangeable metatarsal pads. These nifty little arch pieces – which can be quickly and easily added to the bottom of each insole – will reduce the amount of stress that’s placed on your feet during exercise.
We appreciate that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to sports orthotics. You’ll receive a range of Light, Medium and Firm pads with every pair, and you can experiment with varying levels of support in different areas of the arch and heel until you find a combination that feels 100% comfortable.
Alongside our patented metatarsal support system, we’ve also added a 3mm layer of impact-absorbing PORON to both the footbed and the heel chassis of every insole. This medical-grade material provides extra relief at various pressure points, and because it’s heat-sensitive, it warms to the shape of your foot during use to cushion and stabilise your feet even further.
What’s more, the unique fabric used to create these brilliant inserts will keep your feet cool and dry, even when you’re training extra hard.

When worn in the bottom of your shoes or boot, our customisable insoles actively work to prevent:
• Generalised pain in the arch and heel of the foot from intense or prolonged exercise
• Foot fatigue from overuse
• Excessive pronation, otherwise known as flat feet
• Supination, the inwards rolling of the feet during movement
• Uneven weight distribution
• Uneven ankle alignment
• Plantar fasciitis
• Achilles tendonitis
• Shin splints
• Circulation issues in the feet

When it comes to looking after your feet, prevention is key
Even if you’ve never experienced any pain or discomfort in your feet, we’d recommend investing in a pair of OrthoSole insoles sooner rather than later.
Any kind of sport is likely to place a strain on your lower body, and even the slightest imbalance or a chance sprain could have devastating consequences. These insoles don’t just protect your arches and heels from harsh impact – they also work discreetly to improve your foot positioning and stabilise your ankle joints, which in turn reduces the amount of pressure you’re placing on not only your lower limbs, but also your knees and your lower back. Customers who have previously reported pain in these areas often find the discomfort reduces significantly as soon as they start wearing our insoles (and in some cases, they’ve told us that it gets rid of minor posture-related aches and pains altogether).
Act now, and your feet will thank you later!

Prefer the pool? We’ve got you covered!
Our insoles aren’t just suitable for trainers, hiking boots and other heavy-duty sports shoes. We’ve introduced a range of lightweight yet highly supportive orthotic sandals that are perfect for fashion-forward swimmers who want to take back control of their foot health.
Made from tough yet breathable EVA, our fully adjustable orthotic sandals offer the same unique support system as our other products, packed into a cool, comfortable shell with a non-slip design for a secure fit. We’ve produced five different ranges containing a total of 16 different designs for men and women, so whatever your sense of style, you’re sure to find a pair of sandals that suits you and your feet down to a T.
