“‘No single insole is perfect for all feet, whether they're for a running shoe, high heel, or flat,’ explains Dr. Yolanda Ragland of fixyourfeet.com. This is why it's important to get to know your feet before you consider insoles. People's feet break down into three categories — over-pronators (flat feet), neutral foot types, and hyper-supinators (high arches) — and the first step in picking the right insole, is identifying which of those categories your feet fall into.”

“According to Dr. Ragland, ‘A hyper-supinator requires a highly cushioned, flexible running sole.’ Enter: insoles made of extra cushy memory foam. The memory foam provides the cushion that high arches need while also custom-forming to your foot for a personalized fit. These insoles are designed to be lightweight and offer extra air circulation, so you won't feel weighed down or overheated. The insoles also have active carbon fibers inside that help prevent odor-causing bacteria and keep your shoes smelling fresh.”
