Keeping your feet feeling great is important for anyone, but when your job or your favorite activity depends on how well you can move around or stand for long periods of time, maintaining pain-free steps is especially vital. Athletes from rec leagues to pro stadiums and everyone from nurses to chefs to construction workers all know the effect foot pain can have on daily life. Choosing the right insole for your specific profession and foot need can make a world of difference for your feet.
Superfeet insoles not only help keep your feet feeling great until the last whistle or through the end of every shift, they also come in a variety of styles specifically designed for different use cases and types of footwear. Certified Pedorthist and Vice President of Product and Innovation at Superfeet, Matt Gooch, notes, “Whether you prefer structured support or a more cushioned feel under your feet, every Superfeet insole provides the support of our signature shape designed to perfectly match the anatomy of the foot,” turning any shoes into the most comfortable pair you own.
Insoles for Athletes
Many runners know the agony that conditions like shin splints and plantar fasciitis can cause, but sore and achy feet are never a welcome development for any athlete. Lower leg pain, joint pain and even back pain can also be attributed to the support (or lack thereof) under your feet. If you’re considering Superfeet products for reducing stress on the feet and joints, you’ve come to the right place. The signature Superfeet shape not only gives the flat interior of most shoes a contoured shape reducing strain on your feet as you move, the support and stability provided by the structured arch and sculpted heel cup can provide relief to ankles, knees and back.
Just like there are a wide range of athletic activities, there are many Superfeet insoles for athletes and sports enthusiasts. Players wearing hockey skates need something different than players in soccer cleats, but they are united in their desire for support, stability, and comfort. Superfeet Hockey Cushion or Hockey Performance insoles are specifically designed for skates while Superfeet Run Support Low Arch or All-Purpose Support Low Arch are thin enough to fit in tight-fitting shoes like cleats.
All Superfeet Run insoles work great for more than just the track or the trail. Run Support and Run Cushion insoles offer structured support and flexible cushion, respectively, and are designed for all athletic shoes. Whether you’re hitting jump shots, serving aces, or tossing a frisbee in the park – the support, stability, and cushioned comfort that Superfeet provide can help take your game to the next level.
Insoles for Nurses and Healthcare Professionals
We can all imagine the stress put on healthcare professionals, but unless you’ve lived the grueling hours, hectic activity, and demanding situations, it’s hard to truly know what it takes to be in that position. And even though healthcare workers might naturally be the most informed about staying healthy, it’s not always easy in practice. After all, the ironic sentiment that nurses take care of everyone except themselves didn’t come out of nowhere.
One simple upgrade that can have a big impact on your wellbeing every single day is giving your feet the right comfort and support. Even without all the other stressors factored in, just being on your feet all day can cause intense discomfort and pain. But it doesn’t have to.
There are a variety of premium Superfeet insoles for nurses and healthcare professionals who stand for extended periods. Superfeet Casual Support insoles offer the best of both worlds when it comes to comfort and support – a plush memory foam layer that extends the length of the foot combined with springy arch support reinforced with carbon fiber. Yes, the same incredibly strong yet ultralight material used in race cars and rocket ships!
Several Superfeet insoles are made with carbon fiber, including another great option for everyday and professional footwear: Casual Pain Relief insoles. Along with a form-fitting top cover that minimizes shifting as you move, these premium insoles come with an independent heel stabilizer that can be added inside your shoe for an even stronger foundation in every step. And, as the name implies, they’re a great option for anyone suffering from plantar fasciitis or other painful foot conditions.
If you’re looking for more firm feeling arch support insoles for reducing stress on the feet and joints, Superfeet All-Purpose Support High Arch, Medium Arch and Low Arch insoles offer durable support with a strong arch presence.
Insoles for Outdoor Professionals
When it comes to outdoor professionals like construction workers and park rangers, shoes are more than footwear – they’re safety equipment. The boots worn in this industry offer plenty of rugged protection and durability. Comfort? Not so much. Which can make long days seem even longer and add foot pain to the list of injuries workers have to worry about.
A pair of Superfeet in your boots not only makes you feel better, but let’s you get more done without foot fatigue slowing you down. If you’re after insoles for reducing foot fatigue during high-impact activities, Superfeet All-Purpose High Impact Support and All-Purpose Women’s High Impact Support are great for people who are hard on their feet. The durable stabilizer cap keeps its shape through the toughest shifts for long-lasting arch support and extra forefoot cushioning provides resilient comfort under the balls of your feet.
Of course, Superfeet Hike Cushion and Hike Support insoles are great options for anyone spending a lot of time outdoors. Specifically designed for hiking boots and other outdoor footwear, choose Hike Cushion for flexible comfort and Hike Support for springy arch support infused with carbon fiber.
Few could benefit more from pain-free feet and comfortable footwear than people who work long hours outdoors. That’s why Superfeet is proud to offer a variety of insoles for construction workers, mail carriers, and other outdoor professionals.
Choosing the Right Insole
Ultimately, the right insole for your job or activity is the insole that feels the best to you. Many people who aren’t runners love Superfeet Run Cushion because of the flexible, lightly-structured support. Superfeet All-Purpose insoles are just that – well suited for many different use cases.
There are a few things to keep in mind when picking an insole. One big deciding factor is between Support or Cushion. Are you looking for a softer, more flexible feel or structured shape under your feet? Each Superfeet insole has an underfoot cushioning rating from soft to firm making easier than ever to decide.
Another thing to think about is the arch height you’re looking for. While many Superfeet are great for all arch heights, Run and All-Purpose insoles offer high, medium, and low arch variations. The arch height and thickness are displayed below the name of each product. Thicker insoles are meant to replace the liner in roomier shoes while thin insoles can work in most footwear, even some without removable liners.
Get the Most out of Every Step
Working on your feet or playing your favorite sport shouldn’t leave you aching and in pain. Most shoes are designed with exterior styling and construction in mind. That leaves a flat, unsupportive inside which your foot strains to accommodate. With Superfeet insoles in your shoes, your feet get contoured support and foam cushioning right where they need it, allowing you to get the most out of every step.
