So, what do they do?
Skateboarding insoles have many advantages over stock insoles. First off, they add an extra layer of comfort that’ll prevent injury and tired and aching feet, even if you’ve been on your board all day.
If you also have trouble with shin splints this added cushioning will go a long way to making you far more comfortable. But there are other big benefits too.
We’re sure you’re all too familiar with that feeling you get when you hit the concrete. That feeling when the impact travels through your feet and up your body and through your joints.
The shock absorbing and cushioning features you’ll find in a good pair of skateboard insoles can significantly reduce the pressure on your foot, and the stress and fatigue this creates. So you should avoid those injuries that come when you land from a height or bail out of a big technical trick.
The best insoles for skateboarding will position your foot in just the right position when it’s in your skate shoe. This means your ankles, legs and joints will also be aligned in an ergonomic way.
But, why is this so important? Well, for a start, by ensuring bones and tissues don’t extend and flex beyond their normal range, skateboard insoles are ideal for skaters with existing pain in the joints or soft tissue.
They can also help combat underpronation (when the foot rolls outwards when walking) and overpronation (when the foot rolls inwards).
Arch and heel support
Skateboard shoe insoles with arch support can really take the edge off the pain and stress caused by the severe intense gripping motion the toes naturally make any time you’re on your board.
Reliable arch support in a skateboard insole is particularly needed if you’ve flat feet or have a condition, such as plantar fasciitis or achilles tendonitis, while good heel support can alleviate any heel pain you have.
The moisture-wicking features of our skateboarding shoe insoles ensure your feet will remain dry, cool and comfortable all day long.
As they’re made from a breathable material, they’ll also control excessive perspiration and, by preventing the growth of any nasty bacteria, put a stop to any equally nasty odours, all while prolonging the life of the insole itself.
