Top 5 Insoles for Happy Feet [2022 Guide]

2

Dealing with sore and tired feet all the time seems like a problem that we just have to put up with, especially if your job or your lifestyle has you on your feet all day. Have you ever stopped to think about how much hard work our feet do though?

When you’re walking, standing or playing sports, you are pretty much putting all of your weight on your feet, and some people have to do that all day long. There’s no other part of your body that gets worked as much or as often.

It’s understandable that they’d get tired and worn out. But you shouldn’t have to deal with that pain, especially not if it’s going to be every single day. You would assume that your feet would strengthen and you’d get used to the pain.

If this isn’t happening, it might have something to do with the kind of footwear that you’ve got on. For a pair of shoes to maximize comfort, adapted insoles are often essential, and they are typically something you need to buy separately. 

All shoes technically have insoles, but because everyone has different needs when it comes to their own personal comfort. Some people need arch support, some people need relief from specific conditions and some people need a more breathable pair.

Getting a pair of insoles will benefit your feet in numerous ways, and if you look around, you should be able to find the right pair to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible and that foot pain becomes a thing of the past.

Here’s the 5 best insoles to look out for in 2021:

  1.   Superfeet Green Insoles

Superfeet is a pretty appropriate name for this brand, because these insoles are probably the best ones on the market right now. They don’t really look like much, but looks can be deceiving. There are a ton of advantages present.

The reason why they look fairly innocuous is because of their simple design. They are small, slim and soft and this means that they can fit easily into any shoes. This includes trainers, business shoes and hiking boots.

They aren’t overly padded, so you’ll barely notice them in your shoes, but the foam-based design still allows for a lot of comfort and the deep heel cut ensures good arch support. Arch support is essential for your feet, your hips, your back and especially your knees.

If you’ve got arthritis in your knees, the kind of shoes you wear will help you manage that pain and a good pair of insoles with arch support will be especially helpful. These are a little pricey but they’re worth it.

  1.   Dr. Scholl’s Running Insoles

If you are a runner, this is the ideal pair for you. Running puts that extra bit of pressure on your feet and on your shoes and so you need to have an insole that is going to be up to the task of resisting that.

This pair has what is called a ‘triple-zone design’, which puts emphasis on the three most important areas for running, your arches, your heels and the balls of your feet. There is extra padding for each of these areas.

This helps to absorb the shock of running heavily on trails so that the damage won’t actually be on your feet. Common running injuries such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis and runner’s knee won’t be a problem.

The downside to this is that the extra padding does result in them being a little bulky and taking up quite a bit of space, but if you have a pair of spacious, well-fitted shoes then that shouldn’t be too much of a problem. 

  1.   Powerstep Original Orthotic Insoles

The Powerstep insoles are designed to be suited to everybody. There might be some which are more effective for specific issues, but if you want a pair that is going to have you covered for every potential problem that insoles can resolve, then this is the right choice.

They are also available in a wide range of sizes and are affordable too so no matter what your budget or what your shoe size, you should be able to pick up a pair. They have a semi-rigid design which may be too firm for some, but will offer just the right amount of stability for most.

They’re a great pair for staving off plantar fasciitis as well as general heel pain, and you can easily slip them into anything. Dress shoes, running shoes, casual shoes and they can be moved from shoe to shoe too with little alteration.

  1.   Currex RunPro Insoles

These are another pair which are very effective in preventing the running related injuries that we discussed above. And again, this is due to the fact that they are made specifically with the three-zone support in mind.

These are extremely durable in addition to their support capacities and they also have an extra feature which I’m sure many runners will find beneficial. The insoles have a bamboo and charcoal mid-layer which helps with moisture-wicking and odor control.

Bamboo is a unique plant for numerous reasons, its ability to keep moisture off the skin being one. These shoes are a tad bit expensive, but if you are someone who runs on a very regular basis then they are a worthwhile investment. 

  1.   Walk-Hero Comfort & Support

If you want an insole that’s perfect for everyday use, then you need look no further than this pair from Walk-Hero. They are made with your comfort in mind and so they have a nice mid-layer of silicone to give it a cushion.

They have a rigid support shell and can be easily slipped into any shoe and will provide you with the arch support you need to go about your daily life. There are no shock absorbers present in this pair so they might not be the best choice for running, but that’s not their intention anyway.

You can’t go wrong with Walk-Hero if you want a durable and effective pair of insoles to keep you comfortable all day. 

The choice will ultimately come down to what you personally need your insoles to do for you. Everybody can benefit from them, but in different ways. Regardless, you have many choices out there for whatever your level of activity is.
