What are the best arch support insoles for treating plantar fasciitis?

Arch support insoles are designed to help support the arch of your foot. The plantar fascia makes up the arch of your foot stretching from your toes to your heel. The plantar fascia is one of the strongest ligaments found in your body and is designed to cope under immense levels of pressure. The plantar fascia has a number of different functions including helping to shift weight from your heel to your toes during the push off phase of the gait cycle, support and protect your metatarsal bones and absorb shock preventing shock from damaging your foot and lower limbs. Bio-mechanical imbalances can gradually cause the plantar fascia to degenerate and weaken making it more susceptible to inflammation and damage. When this occurs it is known as plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can be very tricky to get rid of. If you have plantar fasciitis you should make sure that you keep your arches protected and supported to prevent further damage to the plantar fascia, only by doing this will your feet be able to properly recover.

They have been made with a wide variety of different technologies to help improve your foot function, protect and better support your feet to help prevent further foot damage. For example, these arch support insoles use orthotic support technology that is designed to realign and re-position your feet helping to correct bio-mechanical and functions problems such as over pronation and supination which maybe causing extra strain and pressure on your arches causing your plantar fasciitis.

Frequently asked questions

Here at Shoewawa we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions about shoe insoles to help you decide what pair is best for you.

How long will a pair of insoles last?

A good pair of insoles should last for at least 2-3 months. No pair of insoles will last forever once a pair of shoe insoles begin to wear away the support and protection that they provide to you will fade. That is why we recommended replacing your insoles regularly to keep your feet protected.

Can I wear insoles on top of other shoe inserts?

You should not wear a pair of insoles on top of another pair of shoes inserts for a number of reasons including:
-Placing an insole on top of another shoe insert can create an imbalance that can affect the way you walk leading to excessive load and strain on ligaments and joints in your feet and lower limbs.
-The stability of your shoes may also be affected making your more prone to movement that may damage the foot and ankle.
-Your shoes may become too tight if if you put too many inserts inside your shoes. Tight shoes have been linked to a number of different foot injuries such as bunions, blisters, Morton’s neuroma, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis and heel spurs.

What are the best shoes to wear insoles with?

You should wear shoes that have a wide toe box and that have plenty of room for both your feet and the insoles. Another consideration to take into account when buying a new pair of shoes is that the shoes should should have a rigid sole that absorbs shock and keeps your feet in a natural and comfortable position. You can read our blog post about the most comfortable shoes to wear here.

I have flat feet what insoles should I buy?

If you have flat feet you should look buy insoles that have rigid arch support. If you have flat feet it can make you more at risk of bio-mechanical imbalances such as over pronation which can place excessive load and strain on key ligaments found in your feet increasing your risk of foot injuries. Wearing insoles with arch support can help to take strain off your feet and prevent bio-mechanical imbalances from occurring.

I bought a new pair of insoles but my feet feel uncomfortable when wearing them, is this normal?

Your feet will take time to get used to the support that your new insoles provide you, this is known as the “break in period”. Your feet should get used to the support within a week. If not you may want to consider returning them. Here at Shoewawa all of our insoles come with a 30 day money back guarantee which means if you are not happy with your new pair of insoles for whatever reason you can send them back to us to receive a full refund.no questions asked.
