The Reason Flat Insoles Don’t Work

Have you ever asked yourself why your feet hurt after a long day? You may have assumed it was because of the shoes you were wearing, but the real reason could be that you weren’t wearing the right type of insoles for your feet. The majority of stock insoles and flat insoles don’t provide enough support to help your feet stay comfortable. Here’s why flat insoles don’t work and what you should look for in a good insole instead.

👣 People often think that flat insoles are the best option for comfort, but they can actually cause more pain in the long run.

👣 Even flat fleet need some arch support. The reason flat insoles don't work is because they don't offer any support to the arch of your foot, which can lead to misalignment in the ankles and legs, arch pain, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints and other overuse injuries.

👣 Instead of a flat insole, look for an insole that has a raised arch support. This will help distribute your weight evenly and reduce pain in the feet, ankles, and calves. The Medic and The Cush offers mid to high arch support whereas The Destin is recommended for those with low arch.

👣 Another important feature to look for in a good insole is cushioning. This will help absorb shock and reduce impact on the joints when walking or running. Our High Impact insoles absorb up to 90% of shock impact.

👣 If you are suffering from specific problems, such as Plantar Fasciitis or bunions, Remind insoles are designed to provide extra support and relief from pain.
