Custom made running orthotics increase performance and comfort for St Paul / Minneapolis, MN area runners and walkers
Running orthotics properly align your feet, legs, hip and back for injury-free, enjoyable running
A runner’s footwear must absorb massive impact loads stride after stride. The added effects of improper pronation (where the foot rolls inward as it comes in contact with the ground) adds more stress and fatigue to the activity. Running orthotics absorb impact loads and adjust for the negative effects of improper pronation.
In most cases, the insole or footbed that comes with a running shoe is a thin foam insert designed to insulate the foot from the rougher materials of the shell, heal and seams of the shoe. It often provides little or no cushioning or stability while you run.
Running orthotics do the work of cushioning and stabilizing your body when you run
Our running orthotics will keep your feet, ankles, legs, hips and back in proper alignment. Many runners get frustrated by nagging pain and fatigue that shoes alone cannot fix. The problem is caused by the stock insoles that are made to fit “the average foot”…not yours specifically. Our custom running orthotics are molded directly from your feet. They are 100% optimized for the unique physiology of your feet.
