Different people, feet, shoes, and activities require different materials. What works for one person may not work for another. Because there aren’t one type fits all insoles, consider your feet shape, medical history, and end use before purchasing, as these factors can dictate which material is best.
For high arches, look for a softer insole made with foam or gels.
For bunions, shop for 3/4 length insoles to give forefoot more space.
For flat feet, consider a more structured insole made with neoprene or EVA.
For plantar fasciitis & heel spurs, look for an insole with a cupped heel and arch support.
For metatarsalgia, a full length insole with lots of gel cushioning in the forefoot is best.
