It’s a Beautiful Game, for sure – but football is responsible for thousands of foot problems every year!
If you’re a keen footballer who’s eager to keep common foot injuries at bay and continue playing as long as possible, you should invest in a pair of OrthoSole insoles. These lightweight yet ultra-supportive products can be inserted quickly and easily into your football boots to improve your foot stability and cushion your delicate metatarsal bones from the excess stress caused by running, jumping, twisting and tackling.
Why is it important for footballers to wear supportive insoles?
Most seasoned footballers will have sustained at least one injury at some point in their career. From ankle sprains to hamstring strains, knee cartilage tears to full-blown hernias, playing football is responsible for all kinds of painful conditions in players of any age and any ability, as constant impact with the ground places a great deal of stress on the parts of the body that keep you mobile.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional footballer or a kickabout enthusiast – everyone should be taking steps to prevent common sports-based injuries and limit the amount of wear and tear on their muscles, ligaments and joints. OrthoSole’s insoles for football boots are uniquely designed to not only provide unrivalled support and stability to players, but also keep them playing at their best.
The many benefits of OrthoSole insoles
When worn inside football boots, our insoles can:
- Deliver unrivalled cushioning
The customisable arch pieces and metatarsal pads provide extended support to the underside of each foot. They add a protective layer that works to ease heel impact and reduce the amount of strain being placed on your body during movement.
- Absorb excess shock
Repeated or unexpected ground impact can send damaging shockwaves through your entire musculoskeletal system. Our insoles are manufactured with a layer of shock absorbing PORON®, which will reduce the impact on your joints on every strike.
- Stabilise your ankle joints
Weak ankles are more likely to suffer from strains, sprains and fractures. Our insoles for footballers instantly address overpronation and supination as well as shin splints to help you control your movement more effectively and efficiently.
- Encourage better foot mechanics
If your feet are out of alignment with your body, you might start suffering from increased pain in your ankles, knees or hips. Wearing OrthoSole insoles will improve your foot position, correct your posture and eradicate many of the common conditions that are often associated with poor biomechanics.
- Boost performance
OrthoSole insoles help footballers to channel more energy and power into each kick. Their design also encourages comfortable contact with the bed of the foot to give the wearer extra pace and improved agility.
Which insoles are best suited to football boots?
As a footballer, you don’t want to be bogged down by bulky insoles – but you do want to make sure the products you choose can deliver the level of support you need for a better game.
We often recommend our Thin Style insoles to football players, as they offer all the cushioning and shock absorbing benefits of our Max Cushion inserts yet are designed to fit beautifully into tighter-fitting footwear.
