When seeking out wool insoles, our customers often ask for advice on choosing the best option for themselves. There are primarily two types of wool insoles – flat cushioned and orthotics. With new advances in orthotics, your feet can now experience the ultimate in foot comfort with wool. Keeping your feet warm is very important; they get cold fast, and frostbite can occur if they’re exposed to frigid temperatures for too long. Besides being dangerous, the fact is, no one enjoys having cold feet! Hikers, campers, folks who live in colder climates, etc. have been turning to wool socks for years and with good reason, wool is a natural material that has moisture-wicking properties, is soft to the touch and insulates the feet keeping them warm and dry. But what if you choose to build insulation right into your shoes with wool insoles? Let’s take a closer look at some of our products and their properties.
For customers who are not dealing with any particular foot conditions and/or pain, we recommend thin cushion insoles for shock absorption and wool for warmth.
