Gel Shoe Inserts are removable shoe inserts composed of gel in specific areas of the insert. The gel is used as a form of cushioning designed to absorb shock and create a smoother walk for each individual. The gel helps to reduce the harsh impact the ground has on the heel, arch and entire foot. This cushioning helps to prevent foot misalignment, and other serious injuries to the body.


There is a large range of gel shoe inserts designed to improve your overall health available at www.TheInsoleStore.com; the largest online retail store for insoles and orthotic shoes. Gel shoe inserts can be designed to improve the overall comfort in your entire foot, or they can be specific for certain needs. For example, if you’re suffering from Achilles tendinitis, having the right heel support is imperative. A gel insole may be exactly what you need to cushion the impact of your heel on hard surfaces. If you’re suffering from Morton’s neuroma, then having a gel insole designed for the ball of your foot would help to cushion and reduce pain.


Here are a few of gel shoe inserts available at TheInsoleStore.com:
