is the difference between arch and foot supports?
supports are basically the same as arch
supports but foot supports are specifically a one piece,
full length insole that incorporates an arch
support into its design. Basically foot supports are arch
supports and can be used to treat common foot problems. Arch
supports, on the other hand, refer specifically to the ¾
length support piece that runs from the heel to the ball of
the foot. It is often made from plastic but it could be made
from cork, or foam. Historically they have even been made
from metal as well but today plastic is the preferred material
because it is light, durable and easy to work with.
We offer a wide
range of arch supports and foot supports from firm support
to soft cushion and everything in between. Whether you have
painful foot problems
due to an injury or simply have sore and tired feet because
you stand all day, we have the products you need for you at
a great low price!
All of our products are covered by a 30 day money back guarantee!
Notes On Arch Supports
David Fisher the Owner Of Feet Relief
Of Arch Supports
Arch supports are constructed from a wide variety of materials
both hard and soft. These different materials affect both
the feel of the arch support and the level of support it
Hard arch supports and orthotics typically provide a higher
level of support than soft arch supports. Today, some of
the best hard arch supports and orthotics are constructed
from polypropylene plastic. Polypropylene is rigid enough
to support the weight of an active, full grown adult but
at the same time retains enough flexibility to allow the
foot to work naturally and comfortably. These types of arch
supports can take a little getting used to, especially for
people with flat feet. Typically, the flatter one's feet
the longer it takes to get used to the arch supports because
there is a greater degree for bone and tissue shifting.
Soft arch supports are made from softer materials which
can include soft plastic (such as nylon), rubber, foam and
occasionally cork. Soft arch supports don't provide the
same level of support as hard arch supports or last as long
but they are initially very comfortable and easy to get
used to. People with extremely sensitive feet, extremely
flat feet or extremely deformed feet (such as in the case
of some elderly people) will be more likely to try these
arch supports and stick with them because they are more
comfortable. Often times people that start off in soft arch
supports gradually work their way up into more supportive
Vs. Low Arch Supports
All arch supports are sculpted with different maximum and
minimum heights making some arch supports higher than others.
It is important to know the relative height of a given arch
support in order to gauge who it will be most effective
for. Arch supports that are significantly lower than a person's
natural arch will not give their feet enough support and
won't be of much benefit. Arch supports that are much higher
than a person's natural arch will feel uncomfortable from
the start and remain uncomfortable, even after an extended
and gradual breaking-in period.
Slope Of The Arch
All arch supports are designed with a slope that goes from
a higher medial side to a lower lateral side, this is fundamental.
What is not fundamental and varies considerably from one
arch support to another is the curve of that slope. Some
arch supports have a straighter slope while others have
a more concaved slope. All things being equal, the arch
support with the straighter slope gives more support then
the arch support with the concaved slope.
