Frequently Asked Questions
Sore feet are typically a common by-product of daily overuse or something as simple as overstretching. At the other end of the spectrum you have foot pain which exists as a result of conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis. Pain relieving insoles primarily exist to help with alleviating a variety of different pressures placed on your feet, on a daily basis. This is done through a combination of padding/shock absorption, stability of the arch and supporting/cradling the heel of the foot, all which combine to evenly distribute body weight and support overall balance – factors which can prove to relieve and prevent foot pain (even due to Plantar Fasciitis) if treated with the right, correctly fitting insoles for foot pain.
There’s a range of different orthopaedic insoles for sore feet which exists, and choosing the right pair is essential. In order to do this (and outside of brand differences), the best insoles for sore feet need to be:
- Fit for purpose (providing the right type of support)
- Fit right in terms of size
- Comfortable and breathable
- Made of suitable materials
- Designed with some form of input from a medical/podiatry expert.

The support and stability provided by insoles for sore feet are done so with one intent: to keep your feet in place and to keep you balanced and straight. To maintain this stability, an insole needs to ensure the prevention of feet rolling inwards/outwards or moving abnormally in any way, which is a common cause of foot pain and injuries resulting in pain. Some orthotics for sore soles have been designed to treat conditions like Plantar Fasciitis. In instances where motion control and stability are a must for sufferers of this ailment, insoles for foot pain can have a symptom-easing effect.
