The "gold standard" in arch support inserts. 

Powerstep refers to itself the “gold standard” of orthopedic shoe inserts, and it has been making a case for itself since 1991. Powerstep was founded by an experienced podiatrist, Dr. Les Appel, who had spent decades making custom orthotics for his patients. Over time, Dr. Appel noticed a few common shapes and structures among all of the custom molds he had made, and the idea for Powerstep was born. Dr. Appel took his products to fellow doctors at first, and now Powerstep is prescribed by doctors regularly and available from more hundreds of retailers worldwide.

Powerstep offers orthotics for flat feet, insoles for overpronation, and other common foot problems. 


The mission of Powerstep is to provide relief for common foot problems by way of shoe inserts. Powerstep inserts for arch support, plantar fasciitis, pronation, and other common foot problems are made with superior materials that are meant to make these readily available orthotic insoles more effective and more affordable than custom orthotics. With a design generated from analysis of thousands of feet, Powerstep insoles are effective, affordable arch support insoles, plantar fasciitis insoles, and athletic shoe inserts for active people who are dealing with foot pain and who want to avoid foot pain in the future.
