Well either way, we've decided to help you make your choice with this article that explains the dos and don'ts and the haves and have nots of Powerstep Insoles. For your full low down on the Powerstep brand, please read on.

Which Powerstep Insoles for Me?

You've been experiencing foot pain for some time, and your doctor or friend has just recommended that you try Powerstep. This is where this article comes in, so read on for our expert opinion on which insole that you need. You should choose your Powerstep Insoles based on different  criteria. The criteria are as follows:

  • Activity Level
  • Cushioning and Support
  • Foot Condition
  • Type of Insole
  • Type of Shoe

We've decided to compare the five top selling insoles based on these five criteria. The next three headings deal with the three criteria directly, with the first two using charts for a visual comparison.

Which Insole for Cushioning, Support and Activity Level?

No matter how active you are, there is a Powerfit Insole that should be suitable for your needs. Please refer to the chart below for more information on how to choose your Powerstep Insoles.

Model Activity Level Cushioning and Support
Original  Medium to high Medium
Pinnacle Low to high High
Slim-Tech Low to medium Medium
Pinnacle Maxx Low to high High
Slenderfit  Low to medium Medium

Our Recommendations

As you can see from the above, the Powerstep Pinnacle and Pinnacle Maxx are well suited to users who want a high level of cushioning and a high level of support. They will also help to reduce pain in users whose activity level ranges from low to top. If you want more focused insoles that are designed for high activity users only, then the Powerstep Original Full Length Insoles might be the best choice for you.

Which Insole for Which Type of Shoe?

Powerstep Insoles are available in a number of shapes and sizes that are suitable for different types of shoes, 

Model Length Suitable Shoes
Original Full length Casual, dress, athletic, work and more
Pinnacle Full length Casual, dress, athletic, work and more
Slim-Tech 3/4 length Casual, dress, narrow athletic
Pinnacle Maxx Full length Casual, dress and athletic
Slenderfit  Sulcus length Dress, fashion, high heels, pumps and flats

Our Recommendations

The majority of our insoles are full length, with the Slenderfit coming in a sulcus length to ensure it is more subtle and discreet for smarter shoes and heels. The Powerstep Original are well suited to all different types of shoes, while the 3/4 length of the Powerstep Slim-Tech makes them well suited to narrower footwear.

Which Insole for Which Foot Condition?

Powerstep Original Full Length Insoles

The Powerstep Original Full Length Insoles are some of our top selling insoles because their versatile design can help to treat a wide range of different conditions, which range from foot and ankle pain to plantar fasciitis. They have become a top pick for over-pronation, while their EVA base can prevent instability and flat feet.

Powerstep Pinnacle Orthotic Insoles

The Pinnacle Insoles are similar, however more versatile because they can be used by people who are aren't just active individuals. They are proven to reduce pain in the arches, heels, ankles and lower back, while reducing the symptoms of overpronation and plantar fasciitis.

Powerstep Slim-Tech 3/4 Length Orthotic Insoles

The Slim-Tech again are ideal for reducing most foot conditions, but their thin design is ideal for smart shoes and trainers that fit tightly around the shoe. By supporting the base of the foot they can prevent foot roll, while also ensuring conditions such as calluses, hammertoes, claw toe, bunions and more don't start to appear.

Powerstep Pinnacle Maxx Full Length Orthotic Insoles

The Pinnacle Maxx are incredibly stabilising and we would recommend them for users who often roll their ankles. They are medical standard, and can treat problems such as arch pain, knee pain and heel pain.

Powerstep Slenderfit Fashion Orthotic Insoles

Finally the Powerstep Slenderfit Fashion Insoles can help to prevent foot pain for those who find themselves in pain when they wear smart shoes and high heels. Their discreet shape can fit subtly in the shoe, while they then reduce ball of foot pain, heel pain and reduce the chances of bunions.
