|Dr Foot's Anti-Pronation 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 over pronation, while preventing foot strain and injury. A full-length, prescription like arch support prevents and treats over pronation. The result: control for feet rolling inward (over pronation), which can pull the entire lower body out of alignment. Dr Foot's Sport Insoles provide extra longitudinal support and cushioning for runners, plus lateral support for tennis, football and aerobics. Forefoot extensions prevent movement of the insert, which is important during sporting activities. 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 love the Dr Foot Sports Insoles! I am an avid runner, with over-pronation and a family history of foot and leg pain. The Dr Foot Sports Insoles make running possible for me. I've tried many other insoles and none of them work as well as Dr Foot. I'm currently training for my second marathon, and my Dr. Foot Sports Insoles are protecting me from injury. Thank you!"
"As you could imagine, enduring long hours on a gym on a particularly hard tredmill it can be a strain on your legs as well as your feet. I find these insoles very absorbing and comfortable and recommend them to any sports fanatic or anybody who plays sport."

"I wanted to give your Dr Foot Sports Insoles product a real test before giving you a reply. To be honest I've tried some other products without much success, so my expectations were fairly low. To my very pleasant surprise, I can tell you that I've added many more miles to my weekly routine and experienced less knee pain. Sometimes, before using your product, knee pain/soreness would put me off the street for weeks at a time. I've not missed a workout since Dr Foot Sports Insoles."

"Dr Foot Sports Insoles give your feet proper arch support, helping to prevent over pronation. The use of insoles reduces the muscle activity of the lower leg, feels more comfortable and improves performance."

"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 feet 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. "

"Have received my order this morning and am very pleased with the comfort of the insoles. May I also say how impressed we (my wife and I) are with your excellent service. I am thinking of placing an order for more insoles."
