|Dr Foot's Sport Insoles (pair)|
The ideal insoles for complete foot support, comfort, correct posture and mechanics. Dr Foot's insole is a unique foot support system intended to help relieve heel pain, while preventing foot strain and injury. A full-length, prescription like arch support prevents and treats foot pain. The result: control for feet rolling inward (over-pronation), which can pull the entire lower body out of alignment. A special fabric cover reduces slippage and heat, helping keep feet drier.
Differences between Dr Foot Sports Insoles and Dr Foot Work Insoles
Dr Foot Sports Insoles have a firmer arch support than the Dr Foot Work Insoles. Both type of Insoles control over pronation and re-align the feet to treat foot and leg pain. The sports insoles can be used during sporting activities and to treat painful foot and leg conditions. The work insoles provide comfort and relief for people who are on their feet all day, standing and walking on hard surfaces. Both insoles can be worn in normal shoes and sports shoes and they fit best when the insole already present in the shoe is removed and replaced by the Dr Foot Insole.
The insole is retailed in three different sizes and needs to be trimmed using the guidelines provided on the base of the insoles for an exact fit.
*Identify the left and right insoles. Turn the insoles over and place them on a flat surface with toes facing away from you.
*If a manufacturer insole is already in the shoe, remove it. If you desire, you can use this as a template to assist in cutting.
*Using a sharp pair of scissors, carefully trim the base of the insoles along the guidelines, one line at a time.
*Place the insole in the shoe and if the insole is not a perfect fit, trim the next guideline until your Dr Foot Insoles fit perfectly.
Insoles have been used for years to help people with foot pain. Traditionally when we think of insoles or orthotics we think of a hard plastic insert that is placed in the shoe. It cups the heel and supports the arch but because it is not flexible and it does not extend the full length of the foot. This tends to make this type of orthotic uncomfortable and ineffective for many people. It also repositions the arch using "Brute Force" Because it is not flexible it forces the arch into it's correct position but does nothing to relieve the pressure that is forcing the arch to collapse, causing the foot or leg pain in the first place.
This type of hard plastic orthotic can actually cause increased pain in patients, which is the reason why we have recommended the Dr Foot Insoles for the treatment of over pronation and foot pain. They provide a flexible yet incredibly supportive and stable treatment.
"I run distances and also I'm a postman. Last year I began to suffer from plantar fasciitis. Nothing worked and the pain got worse. I then found out the arches on my feet had begun to flatten after years of running and walking miles. I tried various inserts to no avail until I found the Dr Foot site by chance. I then bought two pairs of the Dr Foot sports insoles and voila! My feet almost instantly felt the difference. I have had them in my shoes ever since for running and at work. Would not be without them now. I am going to buy my next batch soon. They do last for a good while as I walk miles and run the same.
I happened to show them to my local podiatrist at my health centre. She remarked, "they are good looking inserts. Where did you get them?"

"Dear Dr Foot
I had Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot that manifested itself in my left heel and was extremely painful. I purchased two products from you, the sport insole and the silicone heel supports.
I have to say that as a result of these the plantar fasciitis has now gone away and I am now able to run again. I did run with the injury in the London Marathon this year and I couldn't have done it without the sport insole for my trainers. The discomfort from the plantar fasciitis was diminished significantly and since the marathon has now gone completely.
Many thanks for your help.
"I have been using your Sport Insoles for about 4 months.
As an electricity meter reader and a keen sportsman walking up to 10km a day at times, I find they give more heel support and good shock absorption than any other insole I have tried.
I gave a friend a pair of insoles to try. He's had a lot of problems with his heels from running and has to wear orthotics. He now tells me that the insoles have great cushioning and his running has improved. He hasn't had any injuries since using the insoles. Thanking you."

"I was diagnosed with planter fascia, had an X-ray which showed a heal spur. I have used the Dr Foot Sport Insoles for a few months. Since wearing these insoles my heel spur is improving remarkably.The calf stretch I do often and always feels good to do. Most likely assisting with healing process. Dr Foot Sport Insoles also will straighten feet up or improve gait as I understand it.
From absolute pain to sheer delight at gaining a painless heal, I'm waiting with baited breath to get back on the sports field and go like a bat outta hell!"
"Hi I would like to thank you for sending me my insoles for my heel spur they arrived this morning and I am all ready feeling a lot better they are so soft and have all most taken all the pain away already.

"I have just received my insoles and they are fantastic, already I can feel the difference and its the first day, I did not need to wear them for two hours, I wore them all day, and my heel and ankles felt brilliant all day, I have been really suffering of late, as I roll over like your diagram.
I used to go to the Bio-Mechanics section for Orthotics at my local hospital, but I believe they have stopped the service and I have suffered ever since.
I bought your insoles, but did not want to risk ordering the two pairs for £40, as did not know if they would suit, I now wish I had, is there anyway I could order a second pair now and take advantage of that discount, or is it too late? As I can see I will be moving them from one pair of shoes to the other as they are so brilliant.
Many thanks for the speedy delivery and your wonderful product. "

"I recently purchased your sports insoles as I had a sore heel as a result of playing too much golf/and incorrect weight transfer on my back swing causing my outside of the heel to take a lot of repetitive pressure, but since using your insoles in my golf shoes my heel is no longer sore...it worked from the first time I used them! Excellent product "
Mr. Sharma, UK
Received the order this morning, 6 hours on my feet at work-vast improvement. Used the Sports Insoles to and from work and even to the supermarket. They are incredibly comfortable and hopefully my plantar fasciitus will continue to be on the mend now as the difference is remarkable.
Thank you very much.
