Feet can feel the impact of forces up to 8x your body weight during exercise.
Almost everyone has some kind of foot flaw which can lead to faulty foot mechanics causeing, missalignments, inbalences, instability and even pain.
Orthotics and custom footbeds
Generic insoles that come in most shoes and boots offer minimal support, if any at all. They are generally provided in new shoes and boots to be placeholders for a more custimized, precisely fitting and supportive foot-bed or orthotic, so most manufatures put very little tought into them. Because of this replacing factory insoles with a custom foot-bed/orthotic is key to not just comfort but allso optimizing you bodys performace, effeciency and endurace. A quality made custom foot-bed or orthotic will stabilize and support you foot and ankle in a biomicanically nutral postition which in turn will align the bones in your knee, hip and spin into a more biomechanically correct, efficient position. There are many benifits when your body is supporting in propor alignment, including; improved muscle efficiancy delaying the onset of fatigue, injury prevention, and pain reduction from excisting injures like plantar fasiitis, Neromas, and many other commor foot, ankle, knee, hip and lower back alments.
