Strive have been supporting sore feet for over 40 years, using the expertise of podiatrists to create their "Biomechanical Footbed Technology", which goes into every pair of their insoles. This biomechanical support works to support your feet in a number of ways:

  • Contoured Arch Support: The curves of the Strive Insoles are designed to match the natural shape of your foot, helping you to avoid issues such as flat feet.
  • Low-Profile Heel Cup: Each Strive Insole features a low-profile heel cup that helps to stabilise your foot without taking up too much room in your shoes.
  • Targeted Cushioning: Strive's orthotic experts know where feet are placed under the most pressure and they use this knowledge to tailor the cushioning of their insoles for optimal shock absorption
