Podotech Kidney Shaped Metatarsal Pad for Express Kits

Getting the right level of support for the right areas of your feet is highly important when it comes to looking after your feet. The Podotech Kidney Shaped Metatarsal pad for Express Kits are designed to provide additional support in the metatarsal area for those using the express insole kits.

Who Can Benefit from the Kidney Shaped Metatarsal Pads?

The Metatarsal Pads are designed for anyone using the express kits. The kidney shaped nature of these pads provides support across the whole of the metatarsal area behind your toes. The focus is on length rather than height with these pads, aiming for wide- spread relief across the whole of the foot.

Where Should These Domes Be Placed?

These Metatarsal Domes should be placed at the beginning of your arch near the forefoot. The flatter edge should be positioned just behind your metatarsal heads at the ball of your foot, with the tapered edge pointing towards your heel.

Features of the Kidney Shaped Metatarsal Pads

The metatarsal pads are available in four different sizes to ensure the right fit for your shoe. They are supplied as a pair.

The hardness of the metatarsal pads is 15 - 20 Shore A.

Podotech Toe Bars for Express Kits

A lot of components available with the Express Kits focus on correcting pronation or easing metatarsal pain. But the Podotech Toe Bars moves the focus forward in the feet to the actual toes. The bars offer support and comfort to this area of the foot.

Who Can Benefit from the Toe Bars?

The toe bar is suitable for use with the Express Kit. This means they are suitable for use for a large range of people. However, for those that suffer from painful toes or have a lot of pressure placed on this area of the foot, the toe bars are particularly useful. They elevate the toes to help distribute pressure and weight away from this area and spreading it around the whole of the foot. This reduces pain and discomfort in this area of the foot.

Features of the Toe Bars

The toe bars come as a standard size to fit all, meaning means there is no concern over finding the right size to fit your shoe type. The hardness of the toe bar is 15 - 20 Shore A.

The Podotech Toe Bars are supplied as a pair.

How Do I Correctly Fit My Bar?

Due to micro-nuances and differences in the shape and size of every persons feet, we recommend that you visit a podiatrist to have your Podotech Bar fitted.

If you are already aware of the position required, we recommend taking an adhesive strip or piece of sticky tape and pressing down until they are firmly in place.

Fitting Tips and Tricks

  • Visit a podiatrist to confirm the affected area
  • If you're unsure of exact placement, experiment with the position across the rough area
  • If you find the perfect area, trace the outline of the bar using a marker against your insole for future reference
  • Use strong adhesive strips to apply your a bar to your insoles or tape it down using a thin strip of kinesiology tape

How Does the Podotech Express Kit Work?

Alongside the recommendation and guidance of a podiatrist, the Podotech Express Kit allows you to tailor and customise a flat insole using a range of different bespoke orthotic components. To find out more, please take a look at the link below:

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.

Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.

Right shape for my problem
18 June 2022  |  Ian

Although they are advertised as being for 'express kits' these pads were the same shape that my chiropodist initially made as a 'test' for dropped metatarsal arch. They seem to be helping.
