Orthotic FAQ's

The foot is a complex structure of bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. We supply orthotics for a number of common foot conditions and pain, see our collection under Orthotics and Insoles menu. At times the foot needs custom prescribed orthotics which we can also supply to you, your local practitioner for an analysis.

How to choose the right orthotic insoles for you
Insoles come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. People wear them for different reasons. A lot of people who use orthotic insoles have foot pain they want to relieve. Some use insoles to help support their recovery from an injury, while others use them to make their shoes more comfortable as they’re moving around throughout the day.

The challenge is figuring out how to choose orthotic insoles for you. It can get overwhelming trying to find the right orthotics for your feet when there are so many options. Our table selection guide is a quick and easy way to find the right insoles for you by the pain you may have.

Do You Need Full Length Insoles?
Full length insoles extend the entire length of the foot and can replace worn out insoles in your shoes. If you wear a wide width shoe, you’ll want to go with the Wide Fit Full Length Insoles for maximum cushioning and support. If you’re suffering from Morton’s Neuroma or pain in the ball of your foot, or need metatarsal relief, Pinnacle Plus offers maximum cushion and 100% support.

If neither of these apply to you, the next step is to decide how much support you need from your insoles.

Maximum Support
If you require as much support and cushioning as you can get from your orthotics, there are a couple options available to you.

Pinnacle Maxx Insoles are ideal for preventing and alleviating pain associated with moderate over-pronation, plantar fasciitis, and other common foot conditions. These specific insoles work for both casual and athletic shoes.

Moderate Support
If you want a good balance of support and flexibility with maximum cushion in your athletic shoes, these are your go-to orthotic insoles:

Minimal Support
If you just need insoles that provide maximum cushion, the ArchLite Insoles are for you. These insoles are an ideal alternative to arch support insoles if you need more cushioning and less support.

If you don’t need full length insoles, your other option is 3/4 length orthotics.
