Which Powerstep Orthotic Insoles for Me?

Powerstep Protech Insoles (require a podiatrist's code)

Next up is the two Powerstep Protech Insoles. These insoles actually require a podiatrist's CH code to purchase them, so it's likely that the choice in purchase will have already been made for you. Still we're going to explore them a little bit below.

Powerstep Protech Pro Classic Plus Orthotic Insoles

Powerstep Protech Pro Classic Plus Orthotic Insoles

The Powerstep Protech Pro Classic Plus Orthotic Insoles are designed to create medical grade support with creating too much bulk in your shoes. They are the practical solution for beating pain, and their firm, flexible shell offers impressive support through the day. A Poron heel pad and a CVT foam layer protects core areas, proving ideal for a wide range of conditions.


Powerstep Protech Pro Control Orthotic Insoles

Powerstep Protech Pro Control Orthotic Insoles

The Powerstep Protech Pro Control Orthotic Insoles differ from their counterparts because they have a double layer and a deeper heel cup, which helps to improve foot control, foot positioning and prevent pronation. Again medical-grade, these insoles can absorb all of the pressure felt by the foot, helping to improve pain that's not just associated with your foot, but with your ankle, knee and lower back.


Powerstep Powerkids (require a podiatrist's code)

Finally we have our Powerstep Powerkids Insoles. These still require a podiatrist's code, so it's important to speak to your GP, podiatrist or expert before you think about buying these insoles.

Powerstep Powerkids Paediatric 3/4 OrthoticsAgain requiring authorisation from a medical professional, the Powerstep Powerkids Paediatric 3/4 Orthotics are designed for young children, ranging from children's sizes 7.5 up to adult sizes 3.
