Replace the foam inserts with better insoles for running. 

One of the most common requests we get is for advice on insoles for running shoes. If you have been a runner for any length of time, you have probably realized – or been told – that you will need to replace the foam insoles that come in your running shoes with better insoles for running. It’s important to start with the best running shoes you can afford, but don’t stop there. Investing in a good set of running shoe insoles isn’t a luxury – it’s an absolute must for your health. 

Insoles for running shoes are important during high impact activities. 

The importance of running insoles can’t be understated. The human foot has 26 bones, all fitting together almost like a puzzle in a series of plates and joints that work together with tendons and ligaments to create a fully faceted piece of biomechanical awesomeness. Think about all the different ways your feet can move, bend, stretch, grip, tighten, flatten, and adjust. One of the most remarkable attributes of the foot’s structural makeup is the arch, which is what allows the foot to do so much of what it does. Protecting the arch, especially during high-impact activity, is critical for short- and long-term foot health.

Runners can often experience a painful condition known as plantar fasciitis.  A great way to combat plantar fasciitis is with arch support, which all of our running shoe insoles provide.  Save yourself significant amounts of pain and medical expense with the simple purchase of a running insoles for plantar fasciitis. 

Get your running shoe insoles before you pound the pavement. 

High-impact athletics are sometimes called “pounding the pavement,” and they get that moniker for a reason. Running (as well as related activities like jumping and skipping) puts a lot of pressure on various points of the foot, requiring it to move and adjust at a rapid pace. When the delicate structure of the arch isn’t supported correctly, the heel isn’t stabilized, and alignment isn’t achieved, you aren’t just risking pain and injury – you are virtually guaranteeing it. Protect your feet with insoles that provide the right amount of stability, arch support, shock absorption, and cushioning.
