Best Balance Insoles 2024

2 Comments4 January 2024  |  Eugene

Most of us think of balance as something that comes naturally, but your feet may not be as balanced as you'd expect. The footbeds and insoles that come with most types of footwear can actually force your feet to compensate for imperfections and a lack of support, leading to tiny changes in your gait that can lead to a range of problems – from joint pain to fatigue to soreness. Luckily, these balance issues can often be solved with some new shoe insoles that correctly support your feet and stabilise your stride.

The right insoles can correct foot alignment and improve your balance

How Can Insoles Help You Balance?

While more impressive acts of balance like walking a tightrope may require hours of practise to perfect, gaining a slight boost to your balance can be achieved with the simple addition of the correct insoles to your shoes. This balancing effect comes from the support insoles can provide, stabilising your heels, arches and forefeet to eliminate the corrections you need to make for a well-balanced stride. Whether you're looking to improve your balance to help eliminate pain or fatigue, or you're looking to boost your athletic performance, insoles for balance are an easy and effective remedy.

At ShoeInsoles.co.uk, we know our insoles, and we've had our product experts hand-pick some of their favourite balance insoles to help improve your stability. Read on the learn about the Best Balance Insoles, and hopefully you'll come across the perfect option for you.

Will Adding your insoles make my shoes fit tighter?
Have hotter shoes for comfort but my feet do give me discomfort.

Good morning Mareen,

Thank you for your question.

This will usually depend on whether or not your shoes have built-in or removable insoles as standard.

If you can remove your insoles, replacing them with one of our choices above shouldn't make your shoes significantly tighter. If your insoles can't be removed, there will be less space in your shoes after putting a pair of our insoles on top.

If you're especially worried about making the fit of your shoes too tight, I would recommend a 3/4 length pair of insoles such as the Vionic 3/4 Length Orthotic Insoles which can be found by following this link:

I hope this answers your question. Please don't hesitate to contact us if there's anything else you require.

Kind regards,
