This past Summer, we had the opportunity to work with an intern, Max McCracken, who attends High School locally here in Charlotte. He studied in Marketing as well as several Fulfillment positions to learn the in’s and out’s of what we do here at TheInsoleStore.com.
We let him make his own product recommendation after getting to learn the extensive collection of products that we carry. Here is what he has to say about the Superfeet Orange Premium Insoles:
“From playing baseball to basketball, and through activities with friends, my feet gradually started to over-pronate. Foot pronation is a natural movement where the arches of your feet roll inward when walking or running. Over-pronation, however, can cause calluses as well as arch, heel, ankle, knee, and back pain. The repetitive physical exercise from playing baseball and basketball created pain in my heels and ankles to the extent that I started to think that I had a problem, which worried me because I was young and knew no one else my age who had foot pain. It wasn’t long until my feet would also start to hurt at the end of the day just from walking from class to class, too. Some days, I would avoid going out with friends to avoid the pain from my over-pronating feet and eventually it caused me to lessen the amount of energy I was putting into sports and activities I was involved in so the pain wouldn’t be as severe. To work around the pain, I would have to run awkwardly and walk slower than normal.
After doing some research online, I found that I could use shoe insoles to alleviate my foot pain and help correct my over-pronating feet. I started to wear the Superfeet Orange Premium Insoles. This insole has a semi-rigid arch support and high-arch profile which provides firm support for my foot, preventing and alleviating over-pronation without being too stiff. The insert properly allows my feet to absorb impact shock and more evenly distribute weight when jumping, walking, and running. With the Superfeet Orange Premium Insoles. I was able to walk and run comfortably again without holding back during physical activities. Since I started wearing the insoles, my feet have not had a day of pain and I am able to enjoy exercise and sports again.
Since I have suffered from two ankle injuries as well as over-pronation, I was glad to discover the Superfeet Orange Premium Insoles to help me also treat daily foot pain and to prevent long-term injuries. Correcting the over-pronation in my feet with the semi-rigid, high-arch support now helps me avoid pain such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures in the foot and ankle, as well as lower back pain. People who regularly exercise can accelerate abnormal arch and foot movement tendencies when they don’t have proper foot support. I highly recommend the Superfeet Orange Premium Insoles to anyone with over-pronating feet or to anyone needing arch support to help alleviate them from constant “wear and tear” on their feet from physical activities.”
