So many insoles which one do I need? There are many reasons why you should add inserts to your shoes. Maybe you have flat feet or maybe your feet are cold and you need a heated insole. Maybe you have diabetes and you need an insole to help with blood circulation. Maybe you’re an active runner who needs insole with shock absorption to get you through that marathon. In this guide we will explain the different types of insoles and inserts to help you choose the one you need.
Orthotics and Arch Supports
Lots of customers at FootCareDepot ask, "What is the difference between a custom orthotic and a simple arch support? Why should I spend that much more money on custom orthotics?
Arch supports also known as Orthotics are by far the most popular insoles purchased. Arch support are a rigid insert that may have different amounts of padding but is made with a reinforced arch that keeps your foot in place as you move. It is very important to always have an arch support in your shoes at all times. When the arch is not supported it can cause the tendons in muscles to rip at your heel causing severe heel pain also known as Plantar fasciitis. Custom Orthotics especially prescription ones, should be one of your last options, Think of them like any other prescription. If you have a sore throat, you'd try cough drops before penicillin. Same goes here. Custom orthotics cost anywhere from $375 and $450, and only about half of all insurance companies cover the cost. Custom Orthotics aren't an overnight solution either. A podiatrist makes a plaster cast of your foot, and then a lab creates the insole from the cast. It can take up to a month before you get them, and then when you do, they're still not race-ready. Just like a new pair of shoes you have to break them in for one to two weeks, and you could feel some discomfort until you get accustomed to them. If you are already experiencing heel pain also known as Plantar Fasciitis then it is too late for custom orthotics they are more a preventative then a healer.
Arch Cushions come in ¾ size and full length and are normally used by people that do not have severe arch problems. Arch cushions have the same design as an Orthotic except they are made with softer foam padding in the arch instead of a rigid plastic. Arch cushions can be used as a beginner insole so you can work yourself up to wearing a more rigid, supportive orthotic.
Cushioned insoles are just what they say they are insoles with lots of padding. Cushioned insoles are a comfort insole that people generally use if they stand for long periods of time to make their feet feel better. They do give your feet better shock absorption and better support and make your feet just feel good. If you are just looking for an insole that keeps your feet comfortable than cushion insoles are just what you are looking for. They do not provide the support as a orthotic does and they do not treat any foot ailments and sometimes they can mask the problem that persist in your feet.
Sport insoles are made to fit specific needs of the athlete. Snowboarders and skiers need insoles that will keep their feet warm. Runners need insoles with extra padding at the heel for the most shock absorption. Bicyclers need insoles that will fit smaller shoes and that can breath better.
Some examples of unique insoles are liquid insoles also they make magnetic insoles or even insoles with heat packets to keep your feet warm in the snow.

Heel spurs are soft, bendable deposits of calcium that are the result of tension and inflammation in the plantar fascia attachment to the heel. Heel spurs do not cause pain. They are only evidence (not proof) that a patient may have plantar fasciitis.
Pain or tenderness over the weight-bearing part of the bottom of the heel.
A bump that can sometimes be felt when the area is touched.
However, symptoms in the heel are most often caused by inflammation rather than by the spur itself.
A heel spur can be diagnosed by looking at an X-ray. In most cases the spur is not the main cause of the heel pain, so the spur is generally left alone and the cause of the heel pain is treated. For instance, a painful and inflamed tendon near the spur (plantar fasciitis) may need treatment.
Treatments for Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis
Ice your feet - icing will help diminish some of the symptoms and control the heel pain. Icing is especially helpful after an acute exacerbation of symptoms.
Stretching the fascia in the morning after sleeping before getting out of bed.

Plantar Fasciitis Explained Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition within the foot which causes stabbing, burning pain in the heel area. Many times, people who suffer from plantar fasciitis feel the most pain early in the morning, or after any activity that involves running or jogging.
The pain that is felt with plantar fasciitis is due to swelling of a tissue which connects the heel bone to the toes. This tissue, which is called the plantar fascia, is found on the bottom of your foot. Overnight, or during periods of inactivity such as time spent at a desk job, the plantar fascia tissue tightens up, causing pain when a person stands up and mobilizes. This pain is generally reduced as the person moves around.
Signs of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis can occur in both feet at the same time, but generally occurs only in one foot.
Sharp pains in middle of bottom of heel. The pain will feel like stabbing.
Worst pain is felt when stepping after lengthy immobility, including after sleep, as well as when stretching the bottom of the foot by tip-toeing or climbing.
Pain is felt after exercise, but rarely during exercise, unless bottom of foot is being stretched.
A small amount of swelling in the heel.
Causes of Plantar Fasciitis The pain and inflammation experienced with plantar fasciitis is caused by repetitive tearing of the plantar fascia tissue. Some things which can cause or contribute to this tearing include:
Overdoing physical activities, particularly running and climbing.
Chronic conditions such as arthritis and diabetes have been shown to increase risks of plantar fasciitis.
Walking incorrectly or having an abnormally shaped foot.
Wearing shoes without the proper support.
Some people are more at risk than others for developing plantar fasciitis. As mentioned above, those with diabetes and arthritis are at risk. Athletes, people who are flat-footed, people who are overweight, and pregnant women are all at higher risk than others. Your job also contributes to your risk factor. If you are a waitress, for example, who is on her feet almost her entire shift, you can be more at risk for plantar fasciitis. Medical Care for Plantar Fasciitis If you experience any of the signs listed above for plantar fasciitis you should seek corrective action as plantar fasciitis can become more severe as time goes buy. Conditions which cause poor circulation can be very dangerous to your feet, and issues with the feet can be severely complicated by these conditions.
If you believe that you may have plantar fasciitis, you should not ignore the condition and hope it will go away. Although plantar fasciitis in itself is not generally a very serious condition, if left untreated, it can develop into problems with mobility and issues with other parts of the body.
Treating Plantar Fasciitis Treatments for this condition range from minimal home therapy to surgical procedures. Some of the most common treatment recommendations for plantar fasciitis include:
Wearing a Night Splint at night to hold the fascia in a stretched position.
Supports inside your shoe to provide better pressure distribution. See our Heel Seats
Physical therapy and morning stretches if Heel Seats and Night Splints are not eliminating all of the pain.
Preventing Plantar Fasciitis Although plantar fasciitis is not a life-threatening condition, it can be annoying and troublesome, particularly if it causes you to restrict your level of motion. Therefore, you will want to take preventative measures to keep this condition from developing.Some preventative measures include:
Stretching legs, ankles, and feet prior to stepping out of bed in the morning.
Wear shoes which provide proper support, and try not to wear high heels.
If participating in sports, always warm up.
Keep in shape and at a healthy weight.
