Why Insoles Are Good For Your Health (And Your Shoes)

Feet are subjected to great amounts of pressure and shocks. This pressure can lead to foot disorders. To protect your feet, keep them comfortable and prevent you from pain, shoe insoles can be added into your shoes. However, the importance of insoles is often underestimated. Read here why shoe insoles are important for your health AND your shoes.


1. Why insoles are good for your feet ?

There are several types of insoles, the flat insoles and preformed insoles or footbeds. Both types of insoles are made of high quality materials to provide enhanced comfort to your feet when adding them into your shoes.

Flat insoles made from vegetable tanned sheep leather or soft cotton absorb moisture, maintain breathability and give stability while walking. These insoles are perfectly flat, can be added in every type of shoe without making your shoes too tight.

Foam insoles, where your feet sinks slowly into the foam, give extra support and are ideally suited for any kind of sport and leisure footwear. These insoles adapt completely to your feet, offer protection to your joints and prevent fatigue during long periods of walking, standing or running.

Preformed insoles or footbeds are also made from leather, cotton or foam, but thanks to their molded contour shape and integrated arch support, they offer an enhanced comfort and support. The shell inside the insole give the foot stability to relieve muscles, tendons and ligaments. The footbeds are perforated to enhance the air circulation.

Insoles, whether or not preformed, exist in different sizes. For advice about the size or materials, you can always drop by in your nearest MISTER MINIT shop.

2. Which complaints insoles can prevent or resolve ?

  • Heel pains

Heel pain is the most common foot problem. This pain usually occurs under the heel or just behind it. Insoles with extra cushioning in the heel area can help relieve or prevent heel pain.

  • Sagging arch

Sagging arches is a flatfoot condition that develops during adulthood. This can cause knee- or backpain. Footbeds give an extra arch support thanks to the preformed arch and provide optimal pressure distribution.

  • Smelly feet

Smelly feet can be caused by wearing wrong shoes. This discomfort can easily be solved by using insoles with natural components such as leather or cotton. These layers absorb perspiration and neutralize unpleasant odors to keep your feet fresh, dry and comfortable all day.

3. How insoles extend the lifespan of your shoes ?

Insoles are made of the finest materials for longevity and durability purposes. They reduce ground impact and protect the actual insole of the shoe so they help extending the lifespan of your shoes.

In your nearest MISTER MINIT shop you can ask advice for which type of insole or footbed suit your feet or complaints the best.
