New Products

At TheInsoleStore, we do not sell any ole product just because it has good name recognition or it is cheap or we can make a great profit from it. We prefer to thoroughly research prospective products for quality, durability, effectiveness in offering prevention and relief from foot disorders, and to be sure the foot care products are backed by a good company that stands behind the guarantee/warranty.
It makes good business sense to offer only high quality products that will make our customers happy. Afterall, a satisfied customer comes back to buy more and refers us to friends and family.

We have closely inspected several brands lately as we move to expand our products. Most brands we inspected are not very impressive despite the fact that almost all have good brand name recognition. The problem as we saw it, was that almost all Insoles and Orthotics are manufactured in China. The same basic styles were presented over and over under different brand names.
Yes, sure, some appeared to be better quality than others and some manufacturers offered better warranties than others but all of the Insoles just did not have that look of high quality.
Then finally, we found what we were looking for, something of high quality that could be offered at a fair price and was backed by a reputable manufacturer. We wanted a brand that was worthy enough for us to proudly promote and market. The Brand we found is Pedag.
Pedag is manufactured in Germany and is made from all natural materials. With vegetable tanned leather, the Orthotics offer great comfort with an elegant design. The focus is on Orthotic Arch Support so the Insoles are not layered with cushioning foam products but rather designed ultra thin so they fit comfortably in almost any shoe or boot.
And one of the nicest features is that almost all of their products include a metatarsal pad to prevent and offer relief from forefoot pain. These Orthotics provide support and comfort for both the longitudinal arch and the latitudinal arch.
Anyone who follows our post knows we are fans of Spenco because of their quality and strong guarantee but I can honestly report that the Pedag Orthotic Insole products are the best quality products that we offer. Considering the quality of materials and very durable design, the Pedag Insoles are dollar for dollar the best value on the market.

Orthotics - The Wonder Fix

Over 80% of us either have or will have some sort of foot problem over the next year. Some of us may never feel any foot pain while others will have such debilitating pain that they dread walking. Many times, a foot problem is not felt in the foot but rather in our joints, such as ankles, knees, hips or back.
That old song, "...the ankle bone is connected to the knee bone, the knee bone is connected to the hip bone..." holds more truth than we realize. If our foundation is out of whack, that is, if our feet fail to function as they should, something is going to try and compensate.
Most arch pain can be attributed to over-pronation. Over-pronation is a condition whereby the foot turns inward at the ankle causing us to walk on the outside of our heels. This puts strain on our foot arch which causes it to collapse.
Orthotic Arch Support Insoles can correct over-pronation by supporting the arch, helping to properly align the foot and give stability.
