How G8 Insoles Work

There are three different types of basic insole product on the market: comfort insoles, insoles for support (like insoles for flat feet) and custom orthotics.

  • Comfort insoles are simple generic shoe inserts which provide a cushioning effect in the shoe; these are typically made from gel or soft foam.
  • Custom orthotics are individually created via prescription to address specific foot problems. They fix the foot in one position only, which limits foot function.
  • Support insoles are made of a harder type of foam and they provide arch support for feet as well as stability and mitigate issues such as splayed feet, dropped arches, and plantar fasciitis.

G8 Performance Insoles are orthotic insoles with a difference! They encourage natural foot movement, thereby exercising the muscles, increasing blood flow and engaging the nerves and receptors of the foot.

The feet are the body’s “self-levellers”. They function most naturally when bare, allowing the bones to move, the muscles to strengthen, and the blood to flow optimally. (This is why beach walking barefoot is so beneficial). When feet are in shoes, natural movement is inhibited – which compromises the function of the foot and leads to compression of bones, muscles, blood vessels and nerves. This impacts negatively on balance, flexibility, strength, and overall stability, and can lead to a myriad of problems in the feet. The body then compensates in an unnatural way and problems can extend up the legs and even into the hips and back.

G8 Performance orthotic Insoles provide a biomechanical solution to these problems at their source. They:

  • Maximise splaying and flexion of the forefoot
  • Support the arches, maintaining optimal bone structure
  • Increase foot blood flow
  • Reawaken nerve receptors for increased proprioception (subconscious awareness of the body and its movement and positioning through the feet)
  • Less pain
  • Increase force out of the bottom of the foot
  • Increase strength and flexibility of the foot over time
  • Decrease return of force up the leg
  • Enhanced balance and stability

Our G8 Performance orthotic insoles enable flexion and splaying of the forefoot under the body’s load, so that the feet function in the same way as they would without a shoe. Our orthotic insoles are unique: they flex with your foot, are fully adjustable, and are a dynamic device that works with the natural mechanics of your foot. They provide a suspension system for your arches, stability at your heel, and cushioning under the metatarsal bones at the ball of the foot. Wearing our orthotic insoles, you’ll perform better and you’ll feel better doing it.

Our mission is to change the way you think about your feet. Looking after your feet with G8 orthotic Insoles doesn’t just improve their health; it will improve the wellbeing of your entire body.
