How do insoles work?
Standing, walking, or running for several hours a day often results in achy feet, ankles, or joints. Insoles work by offering the additional support needed to cushion and absorb the shock placed on the body. Many people have feet that pronate, supinate, or are simply too weak to withstand a lot of time standing or being active. Insoles reduce the amount of pressure that is placed on any one particular part of the foot by spreading out the forces of gravity equally along the entire foot. Not only do insoles add softness and comfort to the shoe, but they also ensure that the foot stays in the proper positioning for ideal pain relief. Arch support and heel stabilization can work to decrease pain in the most sensitive areas of the foot.
