Who Can Benefit from Using These Insoles?
These insoles have been designed for the extra long and intensive Ironman triathlon, and offer both the protection and performance boosting qualities which are necessary to compete in such an event. They are also a robust aid to any athlete or active person who wants to train without causing injury, or who is already experiencing heel pain, or pain in their plantar fascia.
Which Parts of the Foot Do These Insoles Support?
These insoles help to support the full length of your foot but pays 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.
How Does the Pwr-Bridge Work?
By making use of a series of support structures across the heel and mid-foot, Pwr-Bridge technology properly aligns the heel and stabilises the foot. This allows support to be carried along the foot and through the medial and lateral arch, using the biomechanical correction of foot posture, throughout the gait cycle.
What Is Pwr-Thane?
Pwr-Thane is a material formulated by Spenco to transfer energy from impact back into your stride with exceptional efficiency. It features a low compression set rate and overall durability to prevent degradation or loss of performance over long periods of intense usage.
