If you're wearing work boots all day, work boot insoles can make a huge difference in your comfort. 

We often have customers looking for work boot insoles. Maintaining proper foot health in boots is critical, especially because workers wearing this type of footwear are often wearing them for long days involving lots of time on the feet. There are a few things to take into consideration when looking for the best insoles for boots that you’ll be standing and working in all day. You’ll need to find the right amount of arch support, the type of heel pocket or shape that is right for your foot, the type of cushioning you want (or not), and the metatarsal support (or lack thereof) that is best for you. While these seem like a lot of factors that can be combined in a huge range of products, it really isn’t difficult to find the best boot insoles for you. 

Finding the Best Insoles for Work Boots

One of the benefits of work boots is their roominess, or “volume” as it is referred to. Because boots tend to be high volume shoes, they can often accommodate a high volume insole. That’s good news for your feet, because high volume insoles come with a lot of the features you may need in a work boot insole. Generally speaking, the best work boot insoles are going to have a deep heel pocket and a significant amount of cushioning, both for comfort and for shock absorption. Because you spend a lot of time in your work boots on your feet, you may also want to consider a somewhat high arch support for your foot, perhaps higher than what you might want in a casual pair of shoes. Having firmer arch support will help your foot keep its alignment more easily, relieving some foot fatigue as you work hard all day. Having too much arch support is not a good thing, though, and it can lead to pain and discomfort – something we’re trying to avoid. If you aren’t sure what kind of arch support you would prefer, you may want to consider a medium amount of support and see how that does. 

Best Boot Insoles

The focus of this page has been on finding the right insoles for work boots, but just about any type of boot presents similar concerns within a similar set of parameters. Other types of boots, including riding boots, casual boots, combat boots, and hiking boots, often have the roominess afforded by work boots, making thicker insoles possible and even preferable. Any of the insoles above may be the perfect insole for your own boots, whatever their role is in your wardrobe.
