Ever since I messed up my ankle in a bouldering fall, I’ve had problems with plantar fasciitis in the same foot. The pain severity comes and goes, but it’s always present. To help cut down on inflammation and pain for sufferers like me, insole maker Sof Sole just released a new full length insole that helps provide support to the plantar fascia.
The plantar fascia is a fibrous tissue that connects the heel of your foot to your toes and supports the muscles and arch of your foot. When the tissue is over-stretched (by spending lots of time on your feet, flat shoes, injury, etc.), tiny tears can occur in the surface, causing pain and inflammation. The full length design of the new Plantar Fascia Insole targets problem areas such as your heel and arch to provide support, comfort, and stability for the plantar fascia.
Designed to fit any shoe type, the insole’s Plantar Relief Bridge provides sturdy support to painful arches, while the comfortable gel heel with stabilizing heel cup offers motion control and added stability. The insole features a silver-based treatment which inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria, and the moisture wicking top cloth helps keep feet cooler and drier.
Available in men’s sizes 7-13 and women’s sizes 5-11, the new Full Length Plantar Fascia Insole retails for $24.99 and is available now.
