Foot pain is the last thing you want to contend with when you’re perfecting your putt or honing your hook. Luckily, OrthoSole stocks a fantastic range of insoles for golfers to help sports men and women avoid injury and keep discomfort at bay.
Read on to learn more about the advantages of wearing orthotic insoles for golf shoes, and which products within our range are the best options for golf players.
Why should you wear golf insoles?
Golf is often considered to be a low impact sport, but all that twisting, turning and swinging can still take its toll on your muscles and ligaments. Poor golfing form is responsible for all kinds of injuries, including knee pain, shoulder pain, wrist sprains and lower back strain, not to mention golfers’ elbow – and even experienced golfers who have spent years honing their technique will sometimes fall victim to sprains, strains and general aches and pains.
One way to limit pain and counter common golf injuries is to regularly wear insoles that have been specifically designed to enhance your golf shoes. The affordable yet highly effective orthotics from OrthoSole deliver unrivalled support and stability to players who understand the value that optimal biomechanics can bring to their game.
The benefits of our insoles for golf
When worn consistently in golf shoes, our insoles will:
- Deliver enhanced support
Our golf insoles do more than just guarantee a more comfortable fit. The interchangeable metatarsal pads and arch pieces supplied with each pair of inserts can be arranged to provide totally tailored cushioning to the areas of your feet that need it the most.
- Correct your foot mechanics
Overpronation or supination can create an uneven gait and, in some cases, affect your swing technique. Our insoles will correct the placement of your ankle joints to ensure a smooth weight transfer regardless of your position or the width of your twist.
- Support a better posture
We’re all guilty of under-engaging many of our muscles from time to time – but poor posture can place a great deal of strain on the musculoskeletal system, especially during sports. OrthoSole golf insoles work to correct misalignment in the feet, ankles and lower body.
- Combat foot fatigue
Foot fatigue is a very real concern for golfers who spend a lot of time out on the course. Our insoles will help to relieve common pressure points and reduce general aches and pains in your lower limbs as your game progresses.
- Stay comfortable
Forget about bulky, sticky insoles that become nothing more than a distraction! Our insoles for golfers are shaped for maximum comfort and manufactured using a breathable material that will keep your feet cool, dry and odour-free.
"I am a professional golfer and I was suffering with Plantar Fasciitis"
I can’t thank Ronnie Irani and OrthoSole enough for what they have done for me. Their products are amazing! I am a professional golfer and I was suffering with plantar fasciitis, so I went to see my physio and he gave me exercises to do as well as an ultra sound. Then I started having shockwave treatment, this went on for 5 weeks. I wasn’t getting any better and could only play 9 holes as the pain was so bad, it was affecting my everyday life.
Then my friend Charlotte introduced me to Ronnie Irani and the OrthoSole team.
They were so understanding and helpful. I ordered my products and they were here the next day. Once I put my insoles in my trainers and golf shoes it was like my feet were walking on cushions. I have had the insoles, heel lifts for a month now and my feet feel like normal and I haven’t had any pain either. I can’t thank Ronnie and the OrthoSole team enough now I can carry on with normal life with no pain. I would highly recommend speaking to the team if you are having problems with your feet

Which OrthoSole insoles are best for golf shoes?
Because you’re unlikely to be experiencing too much ground impact, any one of our orthotic insoles should provide you with the cushioning and support you need to enjoy a comfortable, pain-free game. Our Max Cushion insoles are great all-rounders, while our Thin Style insoles are better suited to tighter-fitting footwear.
