RUN SUPPORTED WITH FOOTBALANCE CUSTOM INSOLES

In running, maintaining an efficient gait has a substantial impact on your health, performance and long-term enjoyment of the sport. The impact of each foot striking the ground as you run is equivalent to three to five times of your body weight – or more! 


Feet in misalignment do a poor job of absorbing this impact, unnecessarily stressing the shins, knees, hips and lower back. What is misalignment you may ask? When your feet are correctly aligned, your ankles are straight above your heels and the front edge of your ankle bone rests slightly over the front edge of your heel bone. When your feet are not aligned your gait is further affected by your foot rolling inward when you walk, a condition called over pronation. Feet that are misaligned are also less stable and do a poor job of transferring energy which impacts on your run and can result in pain or injury.

Know Your Feet

In order to increase the enjoyment of your run, you need to get to know your feet. We are here to help, with a FREE FootBalance foot assessment which identifies your foot alignment.  FootBalance Custom Insoles can be individually moulded to your unique feet to support them in a neutral position aiding a balanced stance and correct alignment.

Custom Insoles Help Prevent Injury

Custom Insoles are not meant only for those suffering from an injury.  Custom Insoles can reduce the forefoot pronation angle during ground contact and increased the height of the foot arch*. This means, that the insoles create a solid foundation for the body and thus minimise the effects of misalignment throughout the feet, knees, pelvis and hips. On top of that, custom Insoles aid in the foot’s natural movement thanks to their dynamic flexibility.

Do you know your foot and arch type? Do you know how efficient your gait is and its impact on your running style, feet and body?

Footbalance is rolling out in our Bluewater, Holborn, Clapham, Exeter and Kensington stores so simply come in-store for a FREE FootBalance foot assessment and our running experts will provide advice and tips to increase your enjoyment of every run.
