Question: What‘s the quickest way to ruin a hiking adventure and distract you from the beauty of the great outdoors? Answer: Pain.
Thankfully, we now have the technology to prevent said pain, which can include aching feet, shin splints, sore muscles, knees, and back pain. A good pair of orthotic insoles or inserts can make all of the difference in the world and keep you going strong through the completion of your journey.
I took a phone call from a runner the other day who described a shooting pain right behind his third and fourth toes after running a good 10+ miles. Not being a doctor, I advised him to seek proper medical advice; however, the foot pain condition sounded like Morton's neuroma. Along with assessing his shoes, he chose a great orthotic arch support insert for men - the Superfeet Orange Premium Insole.
Morton's neuroma can cause cramping , numbness, and/or tingling in the forefoot. The forefoot is the pad right behind the toes, sometimes referred to as the 'ball of foot.' This condition can create a burning, sharp pain (like needles), and an inflammation (or swelling/small lump) of a nerve typically at the ball of the foot, between the third and fourth toe of the feet.

When we hear the word latex, many thoughts may come to mind. It is an incredibly versatile, widely used material in manufacturing. Latex rubber is a naturally occurring substance found in nature in about 10% of all flowering plants. A synthetic version can also be achieved in a lab. Unfortunately, latex allergies are extremely common. An allergy may develop from repeated exposure to latex products and certain individuals are more susceptible to an immune response from latex antibodies. Latex allergies can range from irritant contact dermatitis (dry, itchy, irritated skin) to allergic contact dermatitis (blistered, oozing rash) to anaphylactic shock, possibly resulting in death. The following populations are at greatest risk for developing an allergy to latex rubber: children with spina bifida, industrial rubber workers, health care providers, and people who have undergone multiple surgical procedures.
While there are certainly many shoe insoles, arch supports, orthotic sandals, and footwear on the market utilizing the benefits of latex, it is not a necessary ingredient for a high-quality product.
TheInsoleStore.com and our manufacturers recognize that many of our clients would prefer and/or require a product without latex. And if there is ever a question, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service department for the latest product information.
We are proud to offer the following latex-free insoles, orthotic sandals & footwear:
