Sunday, 5 January 2020
A pair of thick insoles can do wonders for the comfort of your shoes, but they can be just as useful to help you add a little height, or improve the fit of your shoes. The right thick insoles are more than just a chunky piece of foam though, as you'll need to consider which shoes you're wearing, what you'll be using them for, and how much support you require.
To make the decision as easy as possible, we've had our insole experts rake through our massive range to find the very best thick insoles for a range of uses. Below, we'll share our top selections, dividing them up based on which insole is right for each purpose. Read on, and hopefully you'll find the perfect thick insole for you.
Our Best Thick Insoles for Height Increase and Comfort
Whether to increase your height or make your shoes more comfortable, the Sorbothane Shock Stopper Double Strike Insoles is our top choice. With a thickness of 25mm at the heel and 7mm at the forefoot, these insoles are the best of both worlds, offering comfort, support and height.
Best Adjustable Thick Insoles
Designed to provide a height boost for those with leg length discrepancies, the Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insoles are also ideal for those who want to improve the fit of their shoes or appear taller. Adjustable from 18mm, this insole is easy to use for instant effect.
Best Adjustable Heel Lift
If you're looking for a height boost, or to improve the fit of your shoes, the most important thing to increase is insole height at the heel. The Adjust-A-Lift Heel Lift provides a massive 9mm boost to the heel, and is adjustable in 3mm increments by peeling away layers, ensuring you get the perfect lift.
Best Heel Lifts for Heel Pain
The heel lifts mentioned above are great for the height boost they provide, but they don't provide much in terms of shock-absorption. The Cambion PQ 6mm Heel Lift is sold as a single lift, and is made with a viscoelastic polymer that dissipates shock away from your heel with each step.
Best Thick Insoles for Cold, Tired Feet
Cold weather can be pretty hard on your feet, especially if you're shoes aren't build for the harsher climate. The Therm-IC Insulation 3D Insoles are insoles that are designed to be thick, with their 3D design offering excellent arch support. This support in your arches encourages blood flow, therefore helping you to retain heat when your feet get cold.
