What Are Shoe Inserts?
Shoe inserts and arch supports are orthopedic devices that are placed inside of shoes to improve the way a shoe fits a foot and can provide firm stability and shock-absorbing comfort. They’re also often used to address a particular foot problem. Podiatrists and medical practitioners generally recommend treatment which consists of the use of supporting inserts for shoes. They also come in a variety of styles and forms which include 3/4 length, full length, cups and liners that are placed in specific areas of the foot. In summary, both orthotics and insoles are types of shoe inserts. Corefit Custom Inserts provide correcting support to sore feet, arches and ankles. Unlike many over the counter foot supports, our shoe inserts custom fit to your feet in the comfort of home in minutes.
Do I Need Them?
Shoe inserts can help those suffering from suffer from high arches, flat feet, heel spur or other foot conditions that may cause foot pain or discomfort. However, not everyone needs to wear orthopedic insoles to have a healthy lifestyle. Many people suffer no foot discomfort, have healthy feet and do not need the additional foot support that inserts can offer. Some shoe inserts are made of foam while others are manufactured from gel. They also come in a variety of styles and forms which include 3/4 length, full length, cups and liners that are placed in specific areas of the foot.
“A pair of shoe inserts that worked for me!”
“I am a very active older woman who has always been active. I also walk 18 holes of golf around 4 to 5 times per week. These inserts have helped more than any other insert I have tried. Thanks!” – Jenenne N.
How Are Custom Inserts Fitted?
There are three standard fitting methods: plaster casting, foam box impressions and three-dimensional computer imaging. None of these methods are perfect as they produce orthotics with a proper fit less than 75% to 80% of the time. Originally, plaster casts were formed by a doctor from the feet by dipping fiberglass or plaster “strips” under and around a foot. After these strips hardened, they’d be removed by the doctor and sent to an orthotics specialist. This specialist would then use the casting to make the customized orthopedic inserts. With foam impressions, the negative impression created by foam box is used in a similar fashion to create orthopedic inserts. Certain companies have now ushered in a new technology: digital foot scanners can now scan a persons foot to gauge individual pressure points under feet while standing. These impressions are then used to manufacture a shoe insert which replicates any ailment which exists. Our inserts are fitted to your feet from a seated, non-weight bearing position. As a result, they recall an impression of your feet while relaxed. This methodology allows them to correct structural shortcomings while also providing isometric shock absorption with every step.
