For those who wonder if Custom-Moldable Insoles will worsen a foot condition, the common answer is No. Most people associate custom insoles with a rigid orthotic (or hard) arch support one gets custom made for $200-400 from a doctors office. While the Over-the-Counter Market offers both wear moldable and heat moldable insoles for the custom foot fit at prices generally below $50. If you have a major foot pain and/or condition it is recommended that you see a Podiatrist for proper diagnosis and treatment advice.
Typically speaking though, a good cushion insole and/or orthotic arch support can assist in both prevention and treatment of foot pain and common foot conditions such as Achilles Tendonitis, Flat Feet, Over Pronation, Plantar Fasciitis, Sever’s Disease, Shin Spints, Supination, and many more. Most Custom Moldable Insoles mold to one’s common foot arch type (low, neutral, or high arches) and offer a semi-rigid arch support with raised heel cup. If you are seeking to try arch supports for the first time, perhaps consider a semi-rigid insole versus ‘that hard orthotic’ -check out some of our recommendations at this guide of Semi Rigid Arch Supports.
