Supportive Footwear And Custom Insoles
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are very few parts of the human body that are utilized with as much vigor as the human feet. In fact, in all likelihood, there is not. The average American weighs in somewhere between 150-190 pounds (this includes both males and females). Furthermore, the average person takes about five to seven thousand steps every day. As a result, they can place tens of thousands of pounds of pressure on their feet, every day. This is why supportive footwear is so incredibly important to safeguard the health of the human foot. Good shoes and custom insoles are essential to securing good maintenance of one’s foot.

Supportive footwear is only one half of the duo necessary to protect one’s feet from harm. Most people don’t actually understand that wearing good shoes is just half the battle. Shoe manufacturers mass produce their shoes for a tremendous market. This means the parts of the foot that are specific to the individual, small differences in size and shape, are not taken into account on the shoe. The manufacturer designs their generic insole to be just that, generic. These insoles do not provide any substantial support to the person’s foot, so in essence, they have a great shell in the form of the supportive footwear, but the insides are lacking.

Custom insoles take up the slack where supportive footwear falls short. They are, contrary to the shoes, designed specifically for the individual. Custom insoles supplement supportive footwear by providing the individual with a more stable platform with which to place their body-weight over the thousands of pounds of steps they take every day. They encourage good walking posture while simultaneously reducing foot, ankle, knee and other joint pain. Furthermore, because they are typically made with EVA foam as part of making them more comfortable, they incorporate odor resistant properties.

In every field from hiking to football, dancing to standing around waiting tables can benefit from the combination of a good pair of custom insoles and supportive footwear. As an upright species that stands upon two feet, we rely so much on our ability to walk and move around, it is essential to provide our feet with the equipment they require to operate at their utmost capacity. The combination of custom insoles and supportive footwear strive to ensure that every person has the capability to perform their best, and at the end of the day, put up their feet and relax without unending foot pain.
