Podotech Polyurethane Metatarsal Pads for Express Kits
When it comes to customising your own insoles, it can be hard to find the components that you require. The Podotech PU Metatarsal Pads are designed to stay in place when inserted in the shoe, offering a high rise level of support to help with the alignment of the foot and to take the pressure of the metatarsal area.
Who Can Benefit from the PU Metatarsal Pad?
Metatarsal pain is often caused by the pressure on this area of the foot. The high rise metatarsal pad therefore helps to distribute the weight more evenly and to relieve this pressure by spreading it throughout the foot rather than focusing it in one place. The pad has an adhesive backing to ensure that it remains in place once it has been position on the insole.
Features of the PU Metatarsal Pad?
The metatarsal pad is made from polyurethane, providing comfort and support for the foot while helping to alleviate any discomfort from pressurised areas.
It has an adhesive backing to it. This means that once it has been positioned on one of the express kit insoles, it will remain in place rather than there being the risk of it moving around. If not positioned correctly, the support will not be as good as it should be.
The PU Metatarsal Pad is available in three different sizes and is supplied as a pair.
The Podotech Polyurethane Metatarsal Pads are available in three sizes, Small, Medium and Large. To find the right size for you, please consult the table below.
|Pad Size ||UK Shoe Size |
|Small ||Size 2 - 4.5 |
|Medium ||Size 5 - 9.5 |
|Large ||Size 10 and above |
Please note that if you are on the border between two sizes, it is recommended you go a size up.
Where Should I Apply the Metatarsal Supports?
These metatarsal supports 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. The diagram below shows a general guide that will vary based on your insoles and foot shape.
