We tend to think of insoles as those flat pieces of a foam-like type of material similar to the ones at the drug stores under the Dr. Scholl’s brand. However, they have really advanced to a high level over the last five years.
Companies that make insoles are making them differently than before. They’re better. They’re supportive. They have features added to them so your foot stays aligned while you walk. They’re cushioned with high-tech foam. Some are made from natural materials such as wool, cotton, and leather. Some have flanges on the sides of them so your foot can’t even think of getting out of alignment. They’re ergonomically designed. All this means your feet stay happy for the entire day.
The question – can an orthotic be an insole arch support – is easily answered YES, and more!
