The alignment of your feet and weight distribution on them can affect other areas of your body, including your ankles, knees, hips, and lower back (sacroiliac joint). These silicone shoe inserts help keep your ankle straight, reducing pressure on your muscles, tendons, and joints to prevent foot, knee, hip, and back pain stemming from foot imbalance.
Raised ¼”, providing a 4-degree medical lift for medial or lateral unloading, these heel wedge insoles are well suited for treating:
Believe it or not, bow legs and knock knees do not always require surgery to fix your leg alignment. Both of these conditions can usually be treated naturally, without surgery. Surgery is usually only required in severe cases. When the condition is not severe, certain exercises, knee braces, and heel wedge cushions provide adequate treatment. Before purchasing, consult with a physician if you have any pre-existing knee conditions.
Worn laterally, with the raised portion towards the outside of your legs, our heel wedge inserts can correct supination and counteract bow-leggedness, preventing knee osteoarthritis and harmful ankle sprains caused by inversion.
Worn medially, with the raised portion towards the inside of your legs, our shoe inserts can correct overpronation, counteracting knock-knees and ankle eversion, reducing the effects of knee osteoarthritis and flat feet.
Pronation (overpronation) occurs when your arch flattens on your foot strike, causing your ankle to roll inward after landing on the ground. Supination (underpronation) is the exact opposite, referring to the outward rolling of your ankle when you walk or run.
These premium, gel heel wedges correct the position of your heel, relieve pain, and reduce uneven wear on shoes caused by overpronation and excessive supination.

Simply interchange the corrective shoe insoles for medial or lateral support, keeping your feet from turning in or out.
The solid, polyurethane material has been precisely tailored to withstand heat, high stress, and repetitive impact. Plus, they will not absorb sweat or odor, making these silicone-like insoles perfect for walking, running, or standing on your feet for long periods of time.
Reusable and washable, these orthotic heel (cuboid) wedges can last for weeks or months at a time, if cared for properly. If they lose stickiness, clean with warm water and dish soap or use wet wipes to restore the adhesive surface.
The strong adhesive surface holds the insoles in place all day while allowing for repositioning, if necessary. The side attached to the white paper contains the strongest adhesive. You can also identify the stickier, adhesive side by its smooth, glass-like appearance. For the best results, we recommend wearing these shoe inserts with a sock and not directly against your skin.
Our orthopedic shoe inserts are universal in design, fitting most adults. At only 4 inches long and 1.5 inches wide, they are not a full-sized insole and can be easily worn within both dress or athletic shoes. For the best results, we recommend wearing these medial insoles for varus unloading or lateral insoles for valgus unloading with a sock and not directly against your skin
I had high hopes for these, and was so disappointed. They did nothing for me. Sorry.

It did not work for me and I had to send them back.
Walking has become a pleasure, no knee and hip problems. Thanks
It has made a big difference for me.
For the mist part they are good. I wish they were just a little linger to support the whole foot on the outside. I don’t use the adhesive so I can put them in different shoes.
