Shock Doctor: Engineered for Sport
17 July 2015 | John
Shock Doctor is one of the world’s leading sports protection and performance product manufacturers, and its products are used and loved by thousands of professional athletes around the globe.
It’s no wonder, then, that their insoles are specifically made for athletes, ensuring that they get the best possible protection and support for their feet.
Shock Doctor insoles utilise a technology called Adaptive Arch Technology, allowing the insole to change its shape to match your foot. This is important, as not every person’s foot is the same and by conforming the surface of the insole to the shape of your foot it can deliver an incredible level of support and shock absorption.
Once the arch has become adapted to your foot, the insoles offer greater stability of the foot and can help reduce the fatigue and pain which can come with protracted sports sessions, enabling you to play longer and harder. This reduction in foot fatigue is helped by the Full-Foot Shock Absorbing Foam, which cushions the foot as it hits the ground, reducing pressure.
Shock Doctor insoles can also help reduce the chance of foot conditions developing. Plantar fasciitis, for example can sideline you for months, so it’s important that you do whatever you can to stave it off. The Heel and Mid-Foot ShockDome helps absorb the shocks your feet can take and helps stop them affecting your ankles, knees and back.
The Lightweight Support Cap can also increase you balance on even surfaces, which not only helps improve your game, but also reduces the chance of you going over on your ankle and injuring it.
Each Shock Doctor insole is made for a specific sporting surface. By making specific insoles for specific sporting purposes, Shoe Doctor can ensure that you get the best possible performance boost for whatever sport you play.
For example, with their shoe insole designed for turf sports, they know that the studs on football and rugby boots can cause areas of higher pressure on feet. To combat this, they designed the Lightweight Support Cap for that insole to specifically absorb the extra pressure from the studs.
With most sports insoles, you have to choose between having an insole which offers good support but is incredibly uncomfortable, or an insole which is very comfortable to wear but offers next to no support to your performance. Shock Doctor splits the difference, giving great support in a comfortable insole. This difference makes Shock Doctor one of the best choices for upping your game.
