Basic Metatarsal Domes

The Basic Metatarsal Domes are adhesive backed and can be applied to a range of orthotics to help reduce pain in the metatarsal area. The metatarsal domes are available in a pack of two domes and a pack of 10 domes, and can be stuck to insoles or orthotics for ongoing use.

What's Included?

The Basic Metatarsal Domes are available in the following options:

  • 1 x Pack of 2 Domes
  • 1 x Pack of 10 Domes

The pack of two domes allows you to try out the domes in the footwear of your choice. However, if you wish to use the domes in multiple pairs of shoes, then we would recommend the pack of 10 domes, as the adhesive backing means that they are not designed for moving between footwear.

Your required choice can be selected from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Recommended Sizing Guide and Information

The Basic Metatarsal Domes are available in a choice of three sizes to help you to find the best fit possible. Please see below for recommended sizing based on shoe sizes, as well as the measurements for each of the three dome sizes.

How Do I Apply My Metatarsal Domes?

To find out how to get the most out of your metatarsal pads, please view the instructions below!

  1. Remove the insole from your existing pair of shoes and place your metatarsal pad on top
  2. Place your foot over the pad and experiment with the placement of the dome until you find a placement area that maximises relief
  3. Lightly trace or mark the insole at the correct area and remove the film from the back of the dome
  4. Gently place the flat side of the dome down onto your insole/shoe bed and press gently for ten seconds
  5. Wait for the adhesive gel to set before placing your insole back inside your shoe

Talar Made Metatarsal Domes

When correctly fitted, your insole should look roughly like this

Where Exactly Should I Apply the Metatarsal Supports?

These metatarsal supports should be placed at the front of your metatarsal area, just behind your toe joints. The flatter edge should be positioned just behind your metatarsal heads at the ball of your foot, with the tapered edge resting at the beginning of your arch and pointing towards your heel.

The diagram below shows a general guide that will vary based on your insoles and foot shape.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.


Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.

Metatarsal domes
Tuesday, 28 June 2022  |  Nola

These were uncomfortable initially but as they started to spread the bones in my feet to take the pressure off my big toe joints , I never noticed them there . Started with them in the boots I wear all day for yard work ( horses at home ) but sent for more and have them in all the slippers and shoes I have now . Also the chronic ache I have had in one knee for the past few years has gone , I assume because my leg is in proper alignment with a combination of the dome and the new insoles I got from you too . Many thanks .

Metatarsal Domes help prevent foot pain.

The Metatarsal Domes will help prevent foot pain, but my foot condition will also require a GelSmart M-Gel Universal Metarsal Strap, since ordered from you.

Very Good Product and company
Wednesday, 16 March 2022  |  Anthony

I was recommended these Metatarsal domes by my Physio and when I got back home I searched the internet and found this company and product and ordered them. To my surprise they came in the post the next morning. What more can I say. After a few adjustments sticking them to my insole they have done the trick and the pain in my foot has now gone, after one week of use, and I can go out walking again. My Physio was well pleased when I told him. So I can recommend this company and product. It worked for me.

Metatarsal domes
Wednesday, 9 February 2022  |  Paul

These do make a difference in some of my shoes but not all. They are good quality and not bad for the price.
I would say get these and donít waste money on an insole. As I did. The metatarsal pad incorporated in the insole Is not in the right place. It comes under the arch towards the heal. Way too far back to do any good.

Will probably buy more of these as they have proven so effective at helping my ball of foot pain during distance walking - I need them in all my footwear!

This product is much more expensive in the shops so to find the identical product online at such a competitive price was very pleasing. The speed of delivery was also impressive.
