Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole
A leg length discrepancy can cause a range of symptoms, including lower back pain resulting from poor posture. If there is a relatively slight limb length discrepancy, this can be treated by adding a heel lift to your shoes. The Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole is one such insert and is a therapeutic solution for leg length discrepancies.
What Is the Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole?
The Clearly Adjustable Insole is a tiered insole that allows you to manually remove layers of material in order to correct the discrepancy in the length of your legs. The insole should be placed inside the shoe of the shorter leg to increase the height and drastically reduce hip, knee and back pain.
For Best Results...
The Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole is made from hardened plastic which gives it a highly supportive fit and feel. Because of the hardened nature of this material, it can take up to a week for the insole to gently mold itself to comfortably accommodate the form and shape of your foot.
After a week the foundation material will begin to soften slightly under the unique pressure distribution pattern of your foot, giving a more tailored, comfortable fit.
Sizing of the Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole
The Leg Length Discrepancy Insole is available in seven different sizes that should suit most adults. To find your best size, simply match your shoe size to the table below.
To ensure a precise level of fit, we recommend removing the existing insole from your shoes and measuring the length and width at the longest and widest point as shown in the image below. Match these measurements to the dimensions listed below in order to find the pair that will best fit your shoes.
|UK Shoe Size ||Dimensions (Length x Width) |
|UK Size 5 ||248 x 83mm |

Are Leg Length Discrepancy Insoles Sold in Pairs?
Due to the nature of a discrepancy, a Leg Length Discrepancy Insole is sold as a single item to adjust the length of one leg. Please select either the right or left foot variant depending on your requirements using the drop-down box above.
Indications for the Leg Length Discrepancy Insole
The Clearly Adjustable Combination Insole is ideal for use in the following circumstances:
- Treating a leg length discrepancy (i.e. one leg shorter than the other)
- A smaller foot on a shorter leg
- Gradual height reduction to ease stretching associated pain after healing
- Rehabilitation following a hip replacement, which can cause a significant leg length inequality
- Firm heel support and control for sports and athletic footwear
How Do I Fit My Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole?
When correctly positioned, your Leg Length Discrepancy Insole should be placed underneath your standard insole. This is because they are made of compact and dense material designed to provide maximum support and cushioning.
The ability to remove layers allows you to gradually tailor the fit and size of your insole, allowing you to test out different heights until you find the correct variation for your condition.
Can I Trim This Insole Down to Adjust the Size?
The Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole is available in individual shoe sizes to fit most shoes and foot sizes. However, an even more precise fit, or to fit shoes slightly smaller than the smallest size, it is beneficial to trim the insole. To do this, please follow the instructions below:
- Simply remove the original insole from your shoe and use this as a template by placing it against the Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole and drawing around it with a marker pen.
- Next, separate the leg length discrepancy insole in 2mm to 3mm increments
- Cut away the areas outside the outline that you have made with a pair of sharp scissors
- Reassemble the layers according to your needs
- If the insole slips slightly, use a small amount of double-sided tape to position it in place
Adjustable Design with Removable Layers
The elevation of the Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole can be customised for a perfect fit by removing or replacing layers of the insole element, the heel lift element, or both, to suit your precise requirements. Simply remove layers until you achieve the ideal size insole for you.
Minimise Change in the Ankle Angle
The slant or graduation of the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift Insole tapers gradually almost to the metatarsal, minimising the angle at which the foot and ankle rest. Unlike the slightly more acute angle of a heel lift, this gradual slope minimises changes to the ankle angle.
As a result, your foot can remain in a more level position, reducing related and unwanted changes in gait, foot pressure and Achilles tendon length.
What Conditions Are Suitable for Leg Length Discrepancy Insoles?

- Knee Replacement
- Shin Splints
Retains Its Shape
The Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole is manufactured from material that will not become crushed or change height while you are using it. Instead, it quickly conforms to the shape of your shoe for comfort and to prevent the feet and fit of your shoe from changing.
Durable and Cling-Resistant Material
These layers cling to themselves without sticking to other surfaces like socks or shoe fabric, which helps prevent your socks from getting caught on the insole. The vinyl can also be cleaned easily and does not absorb moisture or support bacterial growth, helping to prevent the insole from causing any odour in your shoe.
Suitable Shoe Types for the Clearly Adjustable Insole
The Clearly Adjustable Discrepancy Insole works well in standard closed-heel shoes, as well as with sandals and open-backed shoes. In standard closed-heel shoes, adhesive positioning tape is not usually required to hold the insole in place.
Your shoe will require some space inside it to accommodate the Leg Length Discrepancy Insole. As a result, shoes with laces and a slightly taller toe box or toe area are ideal for fitting the leg length discrepancy insole.
