What Are the Features of These Insoles?

Who Can Benefit from Using These Insoles?
These insoles are ideal for anyone experiencing impact-related discomfort in their heel or plantar fascia. They are also an excellent performance insole and ideal for those looking to build fitness, technique and results. These insoles are designed to help people reach the levels required for the Ironman triathlon, but can benefit anyone building up to a personal sporting milestone, or recovering from pain or injury in the heel of their foot.
Which Parts of the Foot Do These Insoles Support?
With bespoke low arch support, these insoles help to support the full length of your foot while paying particular attention to your heel. They support and cushion the area where the plantar fascia meets the heel to reduce strain along and around this bone. At the same time, pressure is taken off of the lateral and medial arches through the effective control of foot position and gait.
How Does Pwr-Gel Work?
Spenco's Pwr-Gel material has been specially formulated to maximise cushioning for its wearer. It has less than 11% compression set, meaning it springs back up even after extended wear to allow for exceptional impact resistance which stands the test of time. At the same time it is robust and durable, and able to withstand tear or degradation mile after mile.
How Does the 360 Heel Cup Work?
The 360 Heel Cup is designed to offer support to the whole heel and beyond. It offers protection to both the medial and lateral sides to keep the heel aligned and prevent any kind of eversion or inversion, as well as cushioning the beginning of the plantar fascia to prevent the development or exacerbation of plantar fasciitis.
What Is Flexalign?
Flexalign is a material formulated by Spenco to prioritise lightweight density, cushioning and performance. Its durable body absorbs impact and cushions your heel, while also transforming that impact into energy to maximise your performance. As an exceptionally lightweight material, it is even appropriate for being worn with sandals.
How Do I Know What Size My Arches Are?
There is a simple method for measuring the size of your arches: with wet feet, simply stand on a piece of paper leaving the imprint of your feet. If the mark left has no indent or only a small indent beneath the arches then you have low arches or flat feet. Conversely, if there is very little joining the front and back of your foot, or even nothing, then you have high arches.

These insoles are available in six sizes:
|Insole ||UK Shoe Size |

Which Activities Are These Insoles Appropriate For?
As their name suggests, these Ironman insoles are designed to help you train and perform during the Ironman triathlon without injury. They are, however, an excellent choice for maintaining support and comfort in any high impact activity, including running and walking.
