5 Ways Insoles Heal Your Pain: From Shin Splints to Plantar Fasciitis

5 Ways Insoles Heal Your Pain: From Shin Splints to Plantar Fasciitis

1. Prevent Plantar Fasciitis
About 15% of all running injuries strike the foot. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common of all foot ailments. The condition occurs when a band of tissue on the bottom of the foot is strained and inflamed, and it results in pain in the heel. If you have plantar fasciitis symptoms, insoles for running shoes help reduce strain to the Plantar Fascia tissue by providing proper cushioning and arch support.

2. Reduce Knee Injuries and Ankle Injuries
Insoles stabilize your feet to reduce strain around soft tissues in the ankle.

3. Prevent Shin Splints
Constantly hitting hard surfaces causes one of the worst running injuries - Shin splints. These can cause serious additional injuries, plus delay getting back to regular workouts. Insoles properly cushion each foot strike, providing you with an excellent shin splints treatment.

4. Prevent Metatarsalgia and Metatarsal Fractures
Insoles reduce the shock and stress placed on metatarsal bones in the foot, preventing this common runner’s injury.

5. Assist with Overpronation
Insoles are essential for fallen arches and flat feet to prevent shin splints, bunions, a sprained ankle and other problems, by providing a stable and cushioned arch support.


You now know the benefits of insoles, but we want to make sure you know the importance of replacing them every 6-9 months, because wearing worn-out insoles can cause heel, foot, and back pain as well as long-term tissue damage, so now the reason for wearing them is pointless or potentially dangerous.

So right now – go grab your shoes.

Take out your insoles and look for and wear and tear. If you see things like cracks in the shell of top toss them in the trash. They’re no good anymore—potentially even dangerous. It is time to update your insoles with the newest tech and design.

putting an insole into a running shoe


  • 1. Take out your old insole from your shoe
  • 2. Put your old insole on top of your new one
  • 3. Trace the outline of the old insole on your new one
  • 4. Cut the extra pieces of the new insole
  • 5. Stick the new insole into the shoe, toe first, push down the heel so the new insole lays flat. If the insole is not laying down flat in the shoe, you will need to see where it is not fitting by feeling around the outsides of the insole and cut of extra pieces.

    PRO TIP: To make insoles last longer, take out insoles every time you are done using them to let the insoles breathe.

    Enjoy a comfortable run!
