Foot Beds & Shoe Inserts
Also called “shoe inserts,” these alter the natural function of feet. They add height through the heel which throws off your falling line meaning you will have to compensate from the ground up to keep standing upright. The stiffness of the device removes elasticity of feet too. While there “can be” clinical reasons for orthopedic orthotics made by a podiatrist, the notion that you as a consumer can just buy inserts off the shelf and slap them in your shoes to “fix your feet” successfully is highly unlikely. These foot beds or shoe inserts just treat the end symptoms—not the root causes. To get a “step ahead,” you need to find out why your foot has collapsed or hurts in the first place! *For more foot facts and shoe info, see my Products Section.
