Best Open Toe Insoles for Summer 2024

1 January 2024  |  Sharman

As summer approaches, the days are getting longer and its getting really hot. For many, this is the loveliest time of the year, filled with garden parties, trips to the beach and sunny days at the park. But for those with foot pain, who don't see open toe footwear as an option, summer can be uncomfortable and awkward. They might think that open toe footwear isn't supportive and that they need the extra foot padding of trainers, leaving their feet unbearably hot and sweaty. 

But who wants to be wearing socks and shoes in 25 degree heat? That's where our range of open toe insoles can help. They give you discreet foot support to help you feel confident wearing any toe gap shoes. This summer, free your feet with sandals, flips flops and everything in between.
