It’s a boisterous sport, rugby – and one that places your feet under a great deal of strain!
Wearing orthotic insoles in your rugby shoes will help to cushion and protect the delicate parts of your feet that can often become damaged through overexertion and constant impact with the ground.
Read on to learn more about the supportive properties of our unique rugby insoles, and how our innovative products are changing the game for rugby players across the globe.
Why is it important to wear insoles in your rugby shoes?
You’d be forgiven for thinking that most rugby injuries occur from slides, tackles and collisions. While head and shoulder injuries are inevitable thanks to the overly physical nature of the game, players are actually just as likely to suffer from problems with their lower limbs thanks to the sheer amount of stress that’s placed on the feet, ankles and legs from intense sprinting and jumping throughout a match.
Hamstring strains, ankle sprains and knee ligament damage are just some of the issues that can crop up in rugby players, even if they look after their bodies by warming up correctly and watching their form.
If you’re a rugby lover, you can’t stop these injuries from occurring completely – but you can take steps to actively prevent them by wearing some of the best insoles for rugby in your regular training shoes.
How our insoles can benefit you
Our rugby insoles are:
Our insoles contain self-customisable pads that are detachable and sit directly underneath the metatarsal bones and the arches of the feet. These deliver enhanced cushioning to these damage-prone areas.
Each pair of inserts is supplied with a selection of Light, Medium and Firm pieces, and you can combine them as you wish to find your perfect fit.
The powerful layer of PORON® that lines every OrthoSole insole boasts unrivalled shock absorption and helps to disperse added stress from impact with the ground.
The arch pads and metatarsal pieces work together to control alignment, reduce overpronation and supination, and improve your overall foot position.
Our insoles for rugby players are so discreet, you’ll barely know they are there! The breathable fabric will mould to the shape of your shoe and keep your feet cool and dry.

Our Thin Style orthotic insoles are best suited to rugby players. These inserts offer the same great support you have come to expect from OrthoSole products yet are slightly narrower to accommodate for tight-fitting shoes. As mentioned previously, you can experiment with different combinations of our Light, Medium and Firm support pads to see which setup best suits your biomechanics.
