Powerstep: Powerful Insoles Straight Off the Shelf
Friday, 10 July 2015 | John
In 1991, Powerstep was founded by Dr Les Appel, a podiatrist, foot surgeon and runner. Dr Appel knew that there were some orthotic shapes that worked well with most patients but he noticed that there was a clear lack of simple, off-the-shelf shoe insoles that were ready to wear and would work well at reducing pain. Dr Appel set out to change this and decided to design his own range of insoles to accommodate as many people and conditions as possible.
Powerstep’s first insoles were sold to sports stores and foot specialists, however their market quickly diversified. Today, Powerstep are one of the premier brands for insoles and are suited to a number of problems.
Not Just For Sports
While shoe insoles have a habit of being associated with sports, Powerstep make shoe insoles for every purpose. Their ErgoShield line is designed for providing everyday comfort to people who spend their days on their feet, for example factory workers, teachers and people working in retail.
Powerstep's ProTech orthotics are great for helping with numerous foot conditions. For example, by supporting the arch, they are great for flat feet while still offering stability that helps to counter overpronation (the rolling of feet while walking or running).

Powerstep is the leading shoe insole manufacturer in the US for podiatrists, and it’s easy to see why. Almost every product is designed and made at their Ohio base, each one being manufactured and designed with attention and care, ensuring the best possible product.
