Insoles for shoes and boots to keep your feet happy
If you’re looking to add a bit more comfort and support to your favourite pair of boots or runners, picking up a pair of insoles is a step in the right direction.
Insoles offer a wide range of benefits for all types of activity. One of the most important ones is how they can improve the fit of footwear. By finding insoles that closely fit the heel and arch of your foot (some can even be heat-moulded for a personalized fit), you can worry less about your shoes working against you and more about keeping your eyes on the scenery. A variety of insole shapes and fits ensure that whether you’re going for a run or hitting the slopes, you can get the most comfortable fit out of your footwear.
The cushioning of a good insole does more than ensure a comfortable fit. Shock absorption can reduce fatigue and strain on your feet, ankles, knees and back, letting you go harder for longer. Improved energy transfer from the close fit also ensures that you’re getting the most out of every step.
Most insoles also include moisture-wicking or antimicrobial properties to keep you fresh on those long hikes. And when you’re worried about keeping your toes warm while you tackle a new route, look for insoles with insulation or self-heating properties.
