Insoles for flat feet at Flawless Orthotics
Flat feet can occur for a number of reasons. Some people with flat feet have a genetic predisposition and are born with flat feet. A trauma injury such as multiple bone breaks or a crush injury can lead to flat feet. Slow progressive weakening of the muscles supporting the arch of the foot can also lead to flat feet.
In most cases, genetic flat feet don’t cause any problems or pain. There is some evidence that flat feet can contribute to foot and knee pain. This includes cartilage change over time and that’s where custom insoles for flat feet can be beneficial.

How do custom insoles for flat feet help?
Our insoles are custom-made to the shape of your foot. Following your biomechanical assessment, we create a custom insole to help your foot pain. Orthotic insoles provide additional support to the arch of your foot. This reduces the force and torsion being applied to your arch when you walk or run.
A custom insole can help with shock absorption and comfort. They may have a metatarsal pad, heel cups and should fit into walking or running shoes.
Custom insoles come in 3 different lengths; 1/2 3/4 and full-length top covers. We always recommend that you use your custom insoles with strengthening exercises to condition the arch of your foot.
What’s the difference between Orthopedic insoles for flat feet and insoles from Boots, Scholl, or Superdrug?
Everyone’s feet are unique. Some people have left and right feet that are of different shapes and sizes. Our custom insoles are designed for the unique shape and movement of your feet. This reduces the risk of blistering that off-the-shelf insoles can provide.
Custom insoles are comfortable, durable, and last up to 5 years. Our custom insoles come with a lifetime warranty and can be modified free of charge. Off-the-shelf shoe inserts are mainly for comfort.
