Foot problems are surprisingly common. In fact, it is estimated that around 75% of people in the United States will experience some kind of foot pain or a problem at point in their life. Our feet can sometimes serve as an indication of our overall health. Certain conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis, can be noticeable in your feet at first, before affecting the rest of the body later in life. Insoles can significantly help to treat various foot ailments. They can help to alleviate the often painful effects of fallen or weak arches, and they are also good for the relief of heel pain and for reducing stress on the back and knees. One of the largest and certainly one of the most respected manufacturers of insoles today is Superfeet, a company based in Washington that distributes not only across the United States, but also to Japan, Europe and Australia. Superfeet was formed in 1977 but has had its beginnings back in the mid 1970s, as part of a well known podiatric laboratory. Superfeet has always been an industry leader and today the company holds over 40 patents for foot care products. Superfeet often have their name in the news, including the top story explaining that the company was recently named as providers of the official insole of the Canadian Snowboard Federation. Their insoles also survived an 8,000 mile trek across the Andes Mountains in South America, in 2008. Choosing the right insole is important and Superfeet offers a wide variety of insoles, not only for different shapes and sizes of feet, but designed for different sports and activities as well. Athletes that run, hike, cycle, and snowboard have all benefitted from insoles created by Superfeet. Many of us are so busy that we just do not have time to get a healthy amount of exercise. Superfeet has managed to not only cater to athletes, but the working class as well. They have ingeniously created an insole designed specifically for a dress shoe, and one that is intended to be worn at work. Some Superfeet insoles are designed specifically for people who have special needs. The companys black unisex insole is intended for those who need tighter fitting shoes, or those who have difficulty wearing supportive orthotic devices due to sensitive feet. The insole can be used with a range of different footwear, such as casual and dress shoes, as well as shoes designed for mountain biking and golfing height increase. As with the companys other products, it is available in several different sizes. Designed to be used by people who need to wear a tighter fitting shoe, the Superfeet black DMP can be used effectively and comfortably with just about any type of footwear including athletic footwear, golf shoes, mountain biking shoes, casual and dress shoes. The Superfeet DMP insole is also particularly suitable for people suffering from low arches. It is also said to help prevent foot odor and reduce the growth of bacteria with its Agion antimicrobial top cover treatment. Superfeet has an insole that can be used with high heels as well. The DressFit insert for womens high heels can be used with all high heeled shoes that have heels over an inch. The DressFit has several benefits including providing complete support for the foot and helping to relieve foot pain as well as knee strain. The insole is easy to use and is almost invisible. It is available in a range of sizes, ensuring that any woman in high heels can feel both elegant and comfortable. Superfeet also does its part for the military by manufacturing insoles that are designed specifically for heavier and more prolonged use. Superfeet premium insoles are designed to redistribute the wearers weight, align the body and generally lessen the impact of marching or standing for long periods of time. The insoles can be used just as effectively during a training session, or during actual combat. One of the companys most recent insoles is an innovative cold weather insole, which is designed specifically for use in sports such as skiing and snowboarding. The new cold weather insole is available for mens or womens shoes and the technology helps to provide stability, absorb shocks and help to keep the users feet warm, by regulating the temperatures inside the shoe. The cold weather insole is available in a range of bright colors and designed to appeal to younger generations. Insoles have several benefits since they are easy to use, relatively inexpensive and can be an effective alternative to more complicated foot procedures, such as surgery. Regardless of your foot shape and size, there is an insole to fit you. Superfeet have been pioneers in the foot care field and have been helping people to walk more comfortably for over thirty years.
