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.
How G8 Insoles Work
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:
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.
