A Guide to Running Shoe Inserts

An overview of over-the-counter insoles and who can benefit from adding them to their running shoes.

Not long ago, runners seeking to correct imbalances in their feet had to buy custom-made orthotics at prices as high as $400 to $600. Today, however, a host of manufacturers offer over-the-counter inserts designed to do the job of orthotics at a fraction of the cost.

One website promoting such products asserts that they are “definitely” needed by anyone engaging in any activity that puts stress on their feet: all runners, in other words. Other sites claim that inserts will reduce overpronation, help stave off plantar fasciitis, reduce the risk of other injuries, provide a foundation of support and make you a faster, more efficient runner. Is this simply marketing hype, or do you really need something more than the sockliners that came with your shoes?

The answer, not surprisingly, is that not everyone is the same. If there are levels of training you simply can’t exceed without breaking down with some sort of foot or leg injury, buying something to make your feet happier may allow you to train harder, although problems like stress fractures, bunions or torn ligaments really should be discussed with a doctor or physical therapist.

If all you’re doing is trying to make running a bit more comfortable, what you need still depends on your feet. Some people aren’t going to get relief without expensive inserts. Others will do just fine–and possibly even better–with a less expensive option. “There are a wide range of inserts, all the way from something to cushion your foot to something that’s going to change how you land,” says Jamie Mieras, a podiatrist at the Boulder Valley Foot and Ankle Clinic in Colorado. Turn the page to learn about our top picks.


The simplest are cushioned inserts, designed for people who merely want to reduce shock. “Maybe they like the flexibility of their [lightweight] shoes, but their feet are not used to getting bruised or pounded,” Mieras says. “Or they’re older and finding that the padding on the bottom of their feet isn’t what it used to be.”

The ideal cushioned insert, she says, should be lightweight, flexible and made of materials that won’t break down within a few miles. Spenco makes one for $13, but there are alternatives from Dr. Scholl’s, Birkenstock and other nonsports suppliers.

When most people think of a shoe insert, however, what they first imagine is a full-length footbed with a built-up arch and possibly a shaped heel to reduce pronation (and perhaps also take stress off the forefoot). Such inserts can be useful if you have pain in the arch, suffer from plantar fasciitis, or feel that the muscles on the outside of your foot or ankle are overworking, Mieras says.

It’s important, though, to make sure that the arch support is made of something firm enough that it won’t simply squash flat under the force of your stride. “If you can press down the arch, it’s not stable enough,” Mieras says. She recommends currexSole ($50), which provides separate versions for high, medium and low arches. Aetrex ($60) and Superfeet ($40) also sell a variety of models designed to support different types of feet.

If you want to try something a little more customized to your foot, another option is a heat-moldable footbed, which can be conformed to your foot by first warming it up (typically in an oven at low temperature), then standing on it while the plastic is still warm (but not too hot). Two leading brands are Sole ($40) and Montrail ($40). When molding the insert, Mieras says, make sure you’re standing straight, with your foot pointed forward so that your second toe is directly in front of your shin. Also, be careful not to press down too firmly on the inside edge or you’ll squash down the intended arch support.

If you’re leery of doing this yourself, you can buy Footbalance’s moldable support ($70) through distributors who will mold it for you after watching you run on a treadmill. Footbalance also has a QuickFit model ($55) that looks similar to a pre-molded version like the Currex, but which uses your body heat to gradually conform more precisely to your foot over the course of time. Superfeet’s Copper ($50) insole uses memory foam to do the same thing.


Useful as they may be, such arch supports aren’t without controversy. One voice of caution is Benno Nigg, co-director of the Human Performance Laboratory at the University of Calgary in Canada. Such inserts, he says, can be useful in recovering from injury but may not be something you should wear indefinitely. That’s because, by reducing the range of motion of your feet, they allow some of the small muscles of the foot and ankle to get lazy. “It seems preferable to have strong muscles,” he says. “Strong small muscles around the ankle joint and foot solve the majority of lower-extremity problems.”

Portland, Ore., podiatrist Ray McClanahan agrees. “It shouldn’t be a permanent, lifelong thing,” he says. In addition to Nigg’s concerns, he warns that anti-pronation arch supports can heighten the risk of sprained ankles, particularly for trail runners or people who run on slanted surfaces. There are times, he says, when you want your foot to be able to roll inward–such as if you’re attempting to recover from stepping on a rock that tries to roll it in the opposite direction. “So don’t use it on all routes,” McClanahan says.

McClanahan is a minimalism advocate, favoring shoes with wide toe boxes, a small heel-to-toe drop and limited “toe spring” (the upward curve that most shoes have in their toes) as an alternative way to stabilize the arch. “We have the same goal but go about it in a different fashion,” he says.

He adds, however, that he’s not adamantly opposed to foot supports. To begin with, they can be useful to take the pressure off a recent injury. “Maybe you strained a plantar fascia ligament,” he says. “That might be a good time to temporarily put in a device to let it heal.”

In addition, McClanahan says that 4 or 5 percent of his patients do need permanent arch supports. “These are people who have structural problems,” he says.


To find out if you might be a candidate for permanent support, McClanahan suggests standing barefoot with your feet positioned as they would be if you were wearing shoes. If you then roll one foot inward, the arch will easily collapse and you’ll think you have weak arches that need support. But before leaping to that conclusion, McClanahan says, splay your toes as widely as possible and try again. “For most of us, when the toe is natural, you can’t pronate,” he says.

Toe splaying doesn’t feel normal to most of us who’ve worn shoes most of our lives. But there are inserts for that, too. McClanahan sells a device he calls Correct Toes ($65), designed to spread your toes into a more barefoot pattern, so long as the toe box of your shoe gives them room to do so. Another option is a metatarsal pad.

Metatarsal pads are simply cushioned lumps that fit behind the metatarsal heads (the ball of your foot), distributing weight and forcing the toes to spread. This serves several functions. In McClanahan’s minimalist theory (if you have a broad enough toe box), it lets your toes splay to keep you from overpronating, in a far more natural manner than a full-length arch support. The pads also take pressure off the metatarsal heads. “If you have a neuroma or pain around the metatarsal heads, [pads] can help,” Mieras says.

Many full-length arch supports include metatarsal pads, among them a pressure-relief insole by New Balance ($35) and some versions of the Aetrex inserts. But several companies sell standalone inserts with adhesive backings that glue the pads into your shoes (which means you’ll need separate inserts for each pair). One such brand is Pedag ($8). The inserts come in four sizes and have an adhesive that holds up well in wet conditions, McClanahan says.

If you use a metatarsal pad, it’s important to get it in the right place. “It’s critical that it doesn’t touch the metatarsal heads,” McClanahan says, noting that if you put the pad too far forward, it raises the metatarsal head rather than spreading the toes, opening the door to stress fractures and other injuries. “They can do harm if they’re not in the right spot,” he says. (For detailed instructions, McClanahan has posted a video on YouTube, “How to Place Metatarsal Pads.” View the video.)


The final common type of shoe insert is a heel lift ($3-$5 in many brands). Typically these are used to take pressure off an injured calf or strained Achilles tendon–although, to avoid imbalances, you should use them in both shoes, even if only one leg is sore. As with metatarsal pads and forefoot pain, the pain-relief effect can be dramatic.

Not that this means a heel lift can instantly cure your injured Achilles: It merely takes the strain off while it heals. You still need to do the normal stretching and rehab work, Mieras says. Also, if you use a heel lift for too long, your Achilles tendon will shorten and you’ll discover you need the insert simply to function normally. “You can use it for a few weeks,” Mieras says, “but then you need to wean yourself off of it.”

To make this easier, she adds, don’t use the heel lift all the time. And as your injury heals, you can shift to smaller and smaller lifts. One way to do this is with layered felt pads (inexpensive, but difficult to find except in bulk, via medical supply houses). Years ago, running author George Sheehan recommended these; as your injury heals, you can peel away the felt one thin layer at a time until you’re down to zero.


People with limb-length discrepancies often turn to heel lifts. The idea is that if you raise the heel of the short leg, the stride will be more normal.

But it may not be the best approach. To begin with, leg-length discrepancies are often diagnosed from a side-to-side tilt in the pelvis; however, that diagnosis may not be accurate, says David McHenry, a Portland, Ore., physical therapist who also serves as strength coach for Nike’s Oregon Project. “Many times, a strength/flexibility imbalance in the pelvis can cause an apparent leg-length discrepancy,” McHenry says. If so, he adds, using a heel insert probably won’t help and may make things worse. What this means is that even if you’ve been told you have a leg-length discrepancy, you need to consult an expert to make sure it’s an accurate diagnosis. Even then, elevating the heel still isn’t ideal. “I invariably end up seeing that person down the road for ball-of-the-foot problems,” says McClanahan.

He advises that it’s better to elevate the entire foot using a flat, full-length insert of whatever thickness is needed. Or, you could simply begin by removing the liner that came with the shoe from the long-leg side. “Then we don’t have to build up the short side,” he says.

FootBalance QuickFit Insoles Review

If you have ever spent a long day on your feet and have come home with feet that just ache, then you know the difference between happy feet and upset feet. Even if you don’t think you do, you need some insoles. Your feet maybe haven’t let you know just yet, but believe me, they’re in silent protest. Stock insoles that come in the majority of shoes are thin, little pieces of cardboard that are good for very little.

An after market insole will provide you with the arch support your feet need along with better heel retention and some bonus cushioning. For me, custom insoles take away that ache after a long day of walking or standing around in non-supportive, non-athletic footwear.

One of my current insole favorites is the QuickFit insoles from FootBalance.

I like them for a couple of reasons; they make my feet happy and they’re custom moldable. They’re custom moldable via two different methods. The first method, and probably the easiest is molding them by wearing them. You just trim them to fit and then start wearing the insoles in your shoes. The second method, and in my mind the more fun method, is to heat mold them using your home oven. While this might sound a little more technical, it’s super easy as well and provides a quicker result.

I know using your home oven sounds a little intimidating, but it’s actually pretty easy. For testing purposes I used a beloved old pair of The North Face trail running shoes. These shoes have long since been retired from running but are still used for light hikes with the family and strolling around town. All activities that a new set of insoles could make better.

One important item to mention, you need to break your foot into wearing a new pair of insoles. They might feel a little strange the first couple of times you wear them and that’s normal. It’s recommended that you ease into your new insoles, only wearing them for shorter amounts of time the first couple of days you wear them.



Here’s how you heat mold your QuickFit Foot Balance insoles using your home oven:

Trim your quick fit insoles to fit in your shoes

Step 1 – Using your old insoles as a template, trim your new FootBalance QuickFit insoles to fit in your shoes. It’s best to use a sharp pair of scissors. Dull scissors will leave behind a ragged edge leading to the insoles wearing prematurely.

Step 2 – Test fit the insoles in your shoes. It’s a good idea to make sure they fit right before heating them up.

Set oven to 175 degrees

Step 3 – Turn on your oven and set the temperature to 175 degrees. Make sure the laces on your shoes are nice and loose.

Place insoles on a backing sheet with the bottoms up

Step 4 – Place your insoles on a baking sheet upside down. I lined my baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil. This was just a precaution as I wasn’t sure if the QuickFit insoles would soften up too much and possibly stick to my baking sheet. I also prefer to keep food and feet separated, even if these are brand new insoles. The QuickFit insoles didn’t even come close to sticking, melting or leaving behind any little bits of themselves. So there’s nothing to worry about the next time you bake some delicious goodies.

Place your Quick Fit insoles in the oven

Step 5 – Once the oven reaches temperature put the foot beds (on the baking sheet) into the oven. Set your oven timer for 5 minutes.

Sticker will change color when the insoles are done

There’s a small sticker on the bottom of on of the insoles, when it changes color, the insoles are ready for molding. If the sticker hasn’t changed color by the time the timer goes off, pull them out away. They’re done and ready for some molding. My soles took about 4:50 for the sticker to fully change colors.

Test the fit of your trimmed insoles

Step 6 – Put the insoles into your shoes as fast as you can. Not so fast that you bend them all up or something, but try to be hasty about it.

Lace your shoes up nice and tight to ensure a good mol

Step 7 – Slip your hooves into your shoes and lace them up nice and tight. Not so tight that your feet are falling asleep, but tight enough to form a good fit.

Step 8 – Enjoy your toasty warm shoes while you walk around for about 5 minutes to complete the molding. The dynamic Balance Plate will help you achieve optimal posture and alignment while walking.


You now have a pair of properly fitted Foot Balance insoles. Go ahead and schedule some type of activity that requires you to be on your feet all day, maybe some shopping or a trade show, and prepare to be amazed by just how good your feet are about to feel.

A Standing Solution – A Guest Post from Pro Trail Runner Ashley Arnold

Professional trail runner, Ashley Arnold contributed this story to the FootBalance blog:

While we know that sitting all day is bad for our body—our body just sort of shuts down from being too sedative—standing can also wreck havoc on us. Standing not only makes for tired feet and legs, but often times total body exhaustion.

According to FootBalance’s website, “Your feet are the foundation for your entire body. When this foundation is misaligned or functioning poorly the effects can be felt throughout the body, whether in muscle and joint pain or through more serious injuries.”

Last December, I took a hard fall and severely sprained my ankle five miles into The North Face Endurance Challenge 50-Mile Trail Race in the Marin Headlands just outside of San Francisco, California. It’s taken months to return to some amount of normalcy (perhaps this is partly due to the fact that I can’t actually bring myself to stop running completely), but still, just when I felt like I was finally noticing marked improvement, my ankle suddenly took a turn for the worse a couple of weeks ago. I noticed increased soreness, increased swelling and overall lower leg exhaustion at the end of every day. … So much so that I found myself struggling to get through even an hour run.

China Grove 5k, China Grove, NC Ashley Arnold Hunter – 1st – 17:51

Interestingly, this happened at precisely the same time as a week when I was working back-to-back six-hour days at Dancing Colours Studio in Cabrondale, Colorado, a retail shop with hard wood floors, where I have to stand most of the time (with occasional bouts of round-the-store walking).

Most of that standing time, you should know, I was also wearing my absolute favorite (and completely unsupportive) shoes, Chuck Taylors. (After the day I’d end up with an elevated leg for the rest of the evening in an attempt to decrease my ankle and foot swelling so that I could wake up the next morning and run with slightly less pain.)

After a week of this nonsense, I finally came up with a solution: Insert my Dynamic Blue FootBalance footbeds into my Chucks. While the feeling of proper arch support in a skate shoe threw me off at first, my lower legs felt almost immediately less fatigued after the work day, and, the swelling wasn’t nearly as bad.

While I’m still elevating at the end of every day I stand around in the shop, the decision to add FootBalance footbeds to my shoes was perhaps one of the best things I’ve done for my body besides eat well and train hard. I’ve found my feet, legs and body are less sore, my runs are easier and I’m back on a road to a healthy foot and ankle.

Footbalance Game for 3 Strength-Building Exercises

FootBalance workout tips: Three strength-building exercises you should be doing now and the footbed to wear while doing them

According to a recent survey by Timex, the most popular exercises in the U.S. are, in descending order of popularity, running, lifting weights and outdoor activities like biking, or hiking.

And, while we’ve spent several posts over the last month discussing aerobic activities like running and cycling and hiking, we haven’t said a whole lot about strength training. And it’s time we do. Rresistance training allows muscles to be stressed and therefore better adapted to grow stronger. What’s more, resistance training is not only weight lifting, but it’s also performing exercises that utilize your own body weight.

Herewith, a list of three basic for-good-health lifts and strength-building exercises and the FootBalance footbed you should wear while doing them:

Squat to Overhead Press

This squat/press combo works your quads, butt and hamstring, and also your abs and shoulders.  To do it, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Either using a bar with weights or hand weights held at shoulder height. Lower your body into a squat with your weight in your heals. Push through your heals to stand up and press weights or bar overhead. Return to starting position.

Push Ups

The good thing about this awesome exercise is that you can create so many variations to target different muscle groups. And, it’ easy to do them almost anywhere. Place your hands just wider than shoulder width apart with your toes tucked under, your body in a plank position. Lower yourself to the ground, keeping your muscles engaged. Touch your nose to the ground and extend your arms, push back up. Repeat as many times as you can.


Planks might be the best core workout there is. All you do, too, is lie facedown with your toes tucked and hold your body in a flat, belly-button-pulled-in position with your forearms on the ground, for 30 seconds to a minute (more if you can). Then, rest, and repeat. Planks work your back, abs and shoulders.


So, what is the best footbeds to wear for strength training?  Well, when it comes to lifting especially, you want to make sure that your standing in correct body alignment. So, we recommend Footbalance Game Insole While this footbed is designed for high-impact court sports athletes, it is also well equipped to handle to the stress of extra weight in the weight room, especially when it comes to Olympic lifting (explosive movements)/

Editor’s note:

  • Please, please, please, don’t lift weights unless you understand proper form.
  • Risk of injury is too high when you naïvely throw around weight in the gym.
  • Work with a trainer at your local gym to get started.

Omega-3s, Key Nutrients Every Runner Should Have In Their Diet

Omega-3s are one of the key nutrients every runner should have in their diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because humans can not make them; therefore, they must be obtained through the diet or supplementation. Foods high in Omega-3 have been linked to reduced feelings of anxiety and depression by maintaining healthy levels of dopamine and serotonin, the brain chemicals responsible for keeping you happy. Omega-3 can be found in oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines, and anchovies as well as seeds such as flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp seeds.

All the way back in 2007 Runners World ran a post about the effects of Omega-3 and noted that “scientific evidence is leading us to believe that omega-3s may not only alleviate joint pain, but may also prevent it”, says Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, a dietitian with the Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. “Omega-3s are one of the key nutrients every runner should have in their diet.”

A Natural Painkiller

Again, the Runners World article noted that at the forefront of the omega-3 / joint-pain research is Joseph Maroon, MD, a neurosurgeon at the University of Pittsburgh and an Ironman competitor. “Whether by running or other forms of stress or injury, our bodies are always producing inflammatory substances,” says Dr. Maroon. Omega-3s counter that production, Maroon adds, by Enhancing the creation of the natural anti-inflammatory prostaglandin E3, thus reducing the body’s level of tissue inflammation. Reduce inflammation and you hurt less and heal faster.

Women’s running delved into vegetarian sources of omega 3 fatty acids, known as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), are found in a range of foods including flaxseed, hemp seed, chia seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, soybeans and green leafy vegetables. This type of omega-3 fat needs to be converted by the body into the longer chain fats found in animal sources of omega 3s, but research suggests that this conversion is relatively inefficient. So if you are a vegetarian, aim to eat these foods every day and consider taking a vegetarian DHA supplement.

Chia seeds, with 30 percent of their fat coming from omega-3 and 10 percent from omega-6. Chia, or salvia hispanica L, is a member of the mint family and native to Mexico and South America; it has been enjoyed for centuries as a food and medicine. Known as ‘the running food’, Chia seeds – with water – were the staple that fueled Aztec Warriors. Not only are they rich in omega 3s, but Chia seeds also pack a serious nutritional Punch for Runners, being high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibers and proteins.

7 Key Exercises for Healthier Feet

The muscle groups of your two feet make up 25 percent of the body’s muscles. The stronger your feet, the stronger your foundation is for everything however consider strengthening your feet to be a long-term project. We have put together 7 key exercises for healthier feet.

1. Toe grip

Strengthens foot muscles to improve balance. Place an item on the floor and use your toes to grip and lift it off the floor. Hold for 10 seconds, then release. Repeat five times with each foot. Another version of this is to put about 7-10 small objects on the floor such as lego or marbles and place a small cup nearby. Using your toes, pick up the pieces one at a time and put them in the cup. Just remember to count that you have collected all the objects.

2.Toe stretch

Sit in chair, right leg crossed over left thigh. Interlace left fingers with right toes. Squeeze fingers and toes together and hold for 10 seconds, then stretch wide for 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times with each foot.

3. Toe extension

Wrap an elastic band around all five toes. Expand your toes and hold for five seconds; release. Repeat five times on each foot.

4. Calf stretch

Sit with one leg stretched out in front of you and wrap a towel around the ball of the foot. Pull the towel back gently until you feel a stretch in the arch of the foot and the calf. Hold for 10 seconds; release. Repeat five times on each leg.

5. Calf Raise

Position your feet hip-width apart. Slowly raise your heels until you’re on your tiptoes, then slowly lower back down to the ground. Take three slow counts to raise and lower your heels. Repeat 10 times.

6. Sand walking

Any chance you get, take off your shoes and walk in the sand at the beach. This exercise massages your feet as well as strengthens your toes and provides good general foot conditioning. Watch out for glass!

7. Golf ball roll

Roll a golf ball under the ball of the foot for two minutes. This is a great massage for the bottom of the foot and is recommended for people with plantar fasciitis (heel pain), arch strain or foot cramps. We have even heard of people using a frozen-golf-ball for massaging their feet. The icy, feel and hard ball can get into the tiny muscles of the foot and give you a deep massage.

FootBalance’s Tips for Keeping fit in Autumn & Winter

Knowing how to stay fit throughout the Autumn and winter seasons is more important than you might think if you’re trying to live a healthy lifestyle. Here come the excuses: It’s too dark to exercise outside, it’s getting too cold to exercise, the best programs are on TV now and oh yeah in the New Year I will start a fitness regime.

Well there is no better time than now to get your fitness in check and think if you start now you will be in the better shape for the New Year party and able to tackle the calories over the holiday period.

Here are some tips to get in shape and improve your motivation:

Don’t Blame the Weather

Autumn with its kaleidoscope of colours can be a really refreshing time to take a long walk and exercise. In Winter the cooler temperatures make it idea to get in some heavier exercising and with the right clothes on you will be warm in a matter of minutes. Hiking is an idea exercise for the week-end so review our translation of our Swedish team’s tips for hiking and hiking boots here.

Nordic Walking is also a great exercise for the Autumn & Winter months and can help you get fitter quicker. Read our Nordic Walking post to learn the benefits of Nordic Walking.

Doing some gardening work such as raking the leaves can be another way of gaining some valuable exercise time plus making your area clean and tidy.

Brighten up the darkness

If you are out exercising then take a flash light and reflective vest. If you are cycling than make sure you have front and rear lights on your bike.

Avoid watching the box too much

Take time away from TV or set aside time to watch your favourite program and then head out to do some exercise. Another option is to do some stretching exercises while your looking at TV.

Take up a new sport/activity

Mix it up a little and try a new sport or new exercise regime. It is easy to get stuck in the same old routine so freshen up your activities and try something new. Rather than waiting to try something new in the New Year, try it now and then you can decide if you want to keep it up after the New Year or try something new.

Add Exercise to your daily routine

If your work is not too far away then how about cycling to work at least a day or two a week. Avoid the elevator and take the stairs.

Give yourself a treat

How about a spa and exercise week-end. Getting out of your usual surroundings and doing something new can be a great motivator, so booking a spa hotel, using their fitness equipment and having a relaxing spa at the end of the day can be a great treat.

Wear suitable clothing

If it is cold then dress in layers. It won’t take long for you to warm up so having the right clothing is essential. Look at the tags on your clothes and use “Dri-Fit” and breathable clothing. Usual it is best to have moisture-wicking fabric for your inner layer, so that sweat is moved away and you do not get a chill. A warm layer is idea for the second layer and the third layer is a protective layer like a windbreaker or heavier jacket depending on the temperature and weather.

Add customised comfort to your footwear

Adding FootBalance insoles not only makes sense in terms of improving your stance and correcting foot malpositions but also in terms of adding comfort to your activities and exercise regime. FootBalance insoles are available with various levels of cushioning and stiffness to suit your activity whether it be a strenuerous workout or a brisk walk. It always is easier to motivate yourself if your feeling comfortable and with insoles such as FootBalance Performance perfect for those who want light, dynamic support with a minimalist feel or FootBalance Race heat, the first 100% custom footbed on the market with a built-in heating element, keeping your feet warm in cold conditions and we have many more to choose from.

So now you have no excuse left to start your winter fitness regime in comfort with FootBalance.
