The American Podiatric Medical Association states that over 80% of adults endure some type of foot pain.  What is worse, many people suffer joint pain, including ankle, knee, hip and back pain, that stems from poorly aligned feet.

Most shoes; especially, shoes most consider comfort shoes, such as athletic shoes, lack the arch support and motion control that is necessary to insure proper foot arch function.  The result is a lack of stability, balance and alignment which causes foot problems to develop and escalate to where they become painful conditions.

If the foot arch is not supported, the feet tend to roll inward causing the arch to collapse. This condition is known as over-pronation and leads to foot disorders including heel pain, arch pain, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, achilles tendonitis and many others.

The collapsed arch strains a band of tissue that runs from the heel to the forefoot and causes it to stretch until it becomes inflamed and swollen.  This band of tissue, known as the Plantar Fascia, when strained, will cause severe pain and limit walking and standing.

Soft Insoles or Cushion Insoles may offer some cushioning comfort but they do nothing to support the arch.  Without proper Arch Support, they cannot prevent stress to the Plantar Fascia or allow for normal foot arch function.

Orthotic Arch Supports are an answer but only if the Orthotic is of good quality.  Most brands and styles available do not offer the arch support that is required.  Poor quality brands collapse with minimal weight or are simply too rigid for a comfortable fit.

Superfeet Premium Insoles offer superior Orthotic Arch Support coupled with shock absorbing cushioning comfort to give you the ideal Shoe Insole.  An encapsulated Stabilizer System ensures firm Arch Support without being too firm as to be uncomfortable. The Agion anti-microbial top cloth inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria.

Superfeet Premium Insoles are available for men and women in styles for every foot and shoe type for every activity.  For detailed information, visit The Insole Store today!
