Do You Really Need a Plastazote Insole?

Insoles are made from a lot of different types of materials. Some are made from EVA or Ethylene Vinyl Acetate foam, others made from rubber, leather, sheepskin, plastic, or plastazote. Of all these materials, plastazote is one of the hardest types of materials and one of the most durable, especially when it’s used to create plastazote insoles.

What is Plastazote?

What is Plastazote? Plastazote is a lightweight and flexible cross-linked Polyethylene block foam  often used to produce artificial limbs and rehabilitation devices. Although this may sound great for those who like ridged inserts a harder type of material in a pair of insoles can have a drawback. It can make the transformation of regular insoles to plastazote based ones insoles  painful or one that causes a bit of foot fatigue.

The first thing you should do is ask yourself if your foot needs hard support or the softer support? Does your foot do well with a more durable design, such as what’s found in the plastazote insoles?
