Orthotic & Arch support insole FAQs

What are insoles?

Insoles are orthotic devices designed to sit inside a shoe, beneath the foot. The purpose of insoles is to support healthy alignment and stability of the feet. Wearing insoles can help treat a variety of foot, knee, back, leg and hip conditions, including plantar fasciitis, heel pain and muscle and ligament pain.
Insoles are most commonly made from foam or gel, but can also be made from materials such as rubber, leather and cotton.

How do insoles work?

Insoles work by encapsulating and guiding the feet to help support healthy biomechanics. They gently and gradually encourage correct alignment of the feet and joints while reducing the strain on muscles and ligaments.

Insoles can be designed to support different needs. For example, arch support insoles support the arch of the foot, while sports insoles help provide comfort, shock absorption and injury prevention.

How do you choose the right insoles?

Choosing the best insoles depends on your foot concern and the types of activities you normally do. Lightfeet Insoles are engineered to help with specific conditions such as plantar fasciitis and diabetes-related foot pain, as well as specific activities such as running and tennis.
Our podiatrists have made it easy to find the insole that best suits your feet, activity and shoes;

  • Support Insole is designed to suit anyone requiring superior arch support
  • Slim Insole features superior arch support but with a slim-line design to fit narrow shoes
  • Cushion Insole has a lower arch support profile & increased padding.
  • They’re perfect for people seeking relief from spending all day on their feet.
  • Rebound & Grip Insoles are optimised for sports performance with superior shock absorption, energy return and grip

As a general rule, it’s best to choose insoles that have been designed by podiatrists or specialists with an in-depth understanding of the mechanics of the foot. This is why the Lightfeet range of insoles, socks and thongs are all designed by top Australian sports podiatrists.
