Custom Insoles for Runners?

With such an abundance of insoles in the market today, how do you know where to turn when it comes to choosing what is right for you? Here is what I have discovered in my quest for an insole that truly is comfortable and more stabilizing. I learned that the hard way. My conclusions come only after years of throwing my money away at various items sold as insoles. I guess I am a sucker for cute ad campaigns.RunnerNEW04 1024x471 Custom Insoles for Runners?%catagory

After years of running and hiking for fun and adventure I was being slowed down by what my podiatrist told me was runner’s knee. Reaching the age of 50 is no reason to slow down, not for me. All day at Disney World keeping up with kids or hiking the Bright Angel trail into the Grand Canyon, I will not let tired feet get the best of me.

I have tossed to the wayside, all those jelly, foam & plastic, over the counter, cookie cutter, made in China prefabricated insoles. Did you know that there are a few companies that specialize in making custom insoles? And, fewer of these companies are using the latest technology available for fabricating a custom insole. My internet research led me to one of these companies that are doing it right. This company is FootMindBody and here is what they did for me.

First, from their website, choose the insole that is right for you. In my case I chose the Runner’s Insole. A few days later I received a foam foot impression box in the mail with a pre-paid return postage label. Following a few simple instructions, I stepped into the foam box, right foot and left foot, and shipped the box back to the company. Their motto, “No Two Feet are Alike,” caught my attention initially because I know this to be fact.

Once FootMindBody received my foot impressions they used a laser scanner to capture the detailed contours of each of my feet. From there a Certified Pedorthist designs each insole to mate with each foot. Pedorthist; is the title of a professional who has specialized training to modify footwear and employ supportive devices to address conditions which affect the feet and lower limbs, including shoes, shoe modifications and foot orthotics. Now we are getting somewhere I thought. I love the concept but would they give me more stability and make my feet less tired? More learning was around the bend for me.

Runner’s knee can be caused by a slight overpronation in the foot. A certified Pedorthist can see this from your foot impressions and make necessary adjustments in the design of your insole. An aligned foot will alleviate runner’s knee issues as it has with me.  It has been 9 months and these custom insoles have honestly made my feet and lower limbs feel better and last longer. I wear them at work and at play.

In conclusion, maybe my search can shed some light in showing you what worked for me. Happy Trails!
