Rigid Orthotic Arch Supports: Shoe Insoles for Solid Foot Support
We carry the largest supply of orthotic arch supports found anywhere ranging from low arched to high arched foot orthotics and from hybrid cushion orthotics to very stiff and rigid orthotic arch supports.  Most whom never worn an orthotic arch support prefer an orthotic with a bit of a flexible arch support and/or additional cushioning.  All of our feet are different and our preferences of feel separate; however, we find a majority of our orthotic customers prefer a rigid orthotic arch support that locks the foot arch in place and positions the foot in a completely balanced position to help absorb weight and shock evenly throughout the foot structure for proper balance and support that assist not only one's foot -but ankles, knees, hips and lower back too. (SEE OUR RIGID ARCH SUPPORT INSOLE Recommendations BELOW):   Those whom are new to wearing orthotic arch supports are sometimes taken back from a rigid orthotic as they feel it's to stiff; however, are not willing to give their feet muscles and tendons time to adjust to stretching into their new position -as their feet have been out of alignment for a long time.  Personally, I truly didn't appreciate a rigid orthotic arch support until a good 30 days of wearing; afterward, I could really feel the difference.  Truth be told I appreciate an orthotic over cushion insoles.   Of coarse if one is experiencing severe foot, knee, or hip pain, one should seek a medical opinion and/or access if they have the right size insole or proper orthotic for their foot.

Our most popular rigid orthotic arch supports are:

Spenco Total Support Insoles are Great for Foot Arch Pain!
  I ended up buying these for a pair of Merrell hiking boots that I use around the house for my yardwork (cutting grass, weeding, etc.). So far, I have had no problems with these - they are very comfortable. I have professional orthotics for arch pain that I usually get after walking in regular shoes for 30 minutes. So far, I have not experienced any pain when using the Spenco Total Support Original Insoles - even for long periods of time. Thank you!!!

OOFOS Sandals Review: Family Fun at the Beach
I knew the OOFOS Sandals were unique when we brought the first shipment in at The Insole -little did I realize the comfort and fun the OOFOS provide.  They were immediately a hit with everyone in the store- some wearing them daily to work.  Honestly, we were having a hard time keeping them in stock -so I waited while everyone raved about how soft & cushioning  the OOFOS Footwear feel. Now that being said, my whole family of Max, Emmy, and K were already sporting there Fushcia, Tangerine, and Mocha OOFOS Flip-Flops.  They loved them and my kids essentially have worn them every waking moment over the summer.  In fact, they are so popular with our kids, I made a conversion chart on the products page so that parents could help determine which size is right for their kids too.  OOFOS is certainly a healthy alternative to providing proper foot support for kids sandals. The OOFOS Original Sandals and OOAhh Slides are made out of a proprietary new closed cell OOFOAM [caption id="attachment_3008" align="alignright" width="300" caption="OOFOS Exploring the Mountain Trails..."][/caption] Technology.  They are softer than any flip-flop, sandal, or slide on the market -and (as my kids remind me) certainly better than CROCS.  They have a soft arch support and inclining heel for heel to toe walking action that provides cushioning comfort throughout one's entire gait. They are appropriate for flat feet, low arched all the way to a high arched foot -as they adjust to your foot arch type.  OOFOS Sandals far excel EVA Foam based Sandals as they do not absorb water, float, and do not break down as most traditional sandals do. NOW, I will warn you.   At first they do not feel like anything you've ever worn.  Put them on and walk around for 5-10 minutes -you'll love the OOFOS if you give your feet a moment to adjust to the feel.  The OOFOS tend to run tight in sizing -so I'd recommend going up a size to ensure a good fit. For me,  I broke out my first pair of OOFOS Black Sandals for our family vacation to Folly Beach, SC this year.   As a matter of fact, It's 7 a.m. now with the waves lapping, sand pipers gliding around, and I'm sipping my favorite coffee with my OOFOS dangling from my feet.  I have got to say that these sandals, known as recovery sandals too, are fantastic.  I've worn them all day around the beach and our walking tours of downtown Charleston complete with cobbled stone streets, and the aquarium too.  No Foot Pain!  For that matter, no leg, knee, hip, nor lower back pain either. The OOFOS are known as recovery sandals and from the response we've had from our customers, I can tell you it is true.  From Achilles Tendinitis to Plantar Fasciitis and those recovering from knee or hip pain from extreme sports or from surgery.  The over-whelming response is "Thank-You"   Check out the reviews from our customers on the OOFOS product pages to read for yourself. At the moment, the OOFOS Sandals & Slides come in Four Colors, Black, Mocha, Tangerine, & Fushcia for their introductory year on the market.  Look for new colors to come out for the next Spring year. Our main warehouse manager (and former nurse), Suzette, reminded me that the OOFOS are perfect for people on their feet all day especially nurses, waiters/waitresses, retail workers, etc.  Her one statement is that a closed toe style, like CROCS, would be ideal.  Well, I will let you in on a hint -OOFOS has listened and will debut their new OOFOS going into the Holiday Season -sign up for our Newletter or Friend US on Facebook to be the first to know! As you can see, I can't say enough about the sandals.  Sure -they are a bit more expensive than a $5 Flip-Flop; however, there is a big difference in look, feel, comfort, and lifestyle.  Trust me - Treat your Feet & Yourself to OOFOS Today!
