It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional snowboarder or somebody who likes to hit the slopes once or a twice a year – you need to make sure you invest in the right gear, including ultra-supportive footwear.
OrthoSole insoles can help snowboarders protect themselves from injury in a variety of ways. Read on to learn more about the many advantages of wearing orthotic inserts in your snowboarding boots.
With every stride, jump and landing, snowboarding places a great deal of stress on your lower limbs. Your feet are designed to withstand some of this shock – but over time, too much strain will start to damage the joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons that keep you strong, supple and mobile. In the worst-case scenario, problems in these parts of your body could put a halt to your snowboarding career, full stop.
The arches of your feet are particularly susceptible to injury due to excess pressure. Wearing snowboarding insoles will provide the metatarsal bones that run along the bottom of your feet with extra support and go some way to prevent painful foot-related conditions like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis and metatarsalgia from developing over time. Orthotic insoles will also work to keep your feet and ankles in better alignment, which in turn will reduce the likelihood of twists, rolls and sprains.
In short: if you look after your feet, and they will look after you. By wearing snowboarding insoles, you will be encouraging your body to perform better, recover faster, and stay comfortable and injury-free for much longer!
Our insoles are uniquely designed to:
Without extra padding, your foot arches will fail to capture and disperse excess stress, leading to immobilising injuries. OrthoSole insoles provide added cushioning to combat soreness and prevent sports-related ailments.
Each pair of snowboarding insoles comes with a set of interchangeable metatarsal pads and arch pieces that vary in thickness and firmness. You can experiment with these until you find a combination that delivers the precise level of support you need.
Overpronation, supination and other structural issues in the feet and ankles can not only affect your snowboarding performance, but also lead to pain in your knees, hips and lower back. Our insoles work to correct your posture and overall alignment.
The layer of PORON® that’s added to every insole will withstand additional shock from ground impact and ensure it’s more evenly dispersed to avoid damage to your musculoskeletal system.
Their snug yet breathable fit will reduce pressure points and get rid of those all-too-familiar burning pains that can start to crop up in the balls of your feet. The unique fabric will also keep your feet cool, dry and odour-free.
The best insoles for snowboarding are our Max Cushion and Thin Style products.
As their name suggests, the Max Cushion inserts offer the most advanced level of support possible. Our Thin Style insoles provide the same excellent cushioning yet fit more comfortably into tighter-fitting boots.
