Shoe inserts are placed inside a shoe to provide extra support and cushioning to the foot. They are used to correct biomechanical problems such as flat feet, heel spurs, Morton’s syndrome and bunions, or to relieve pain and discomfort arising from injuries or medical conditions such as arthritis. Shoe inserts can also be used to improve performance in certain activities, such as running or sports, or to provide relief if you stand a lot during the workday. There are full soles, three-quarter soles and pads that can be used to find the right level of support. In case of advanced foot problems, it is recommended to contact an orthopaedic surgeon to get specially adapted insoles.
