Although high-heeled shoes do great harm to the body, most women are willing to endure such harm for the beauty brought by high-heeled shoes. Insoles become an essential accessory for these women who can't help wearing high-heeled shoes. Not only can the high-heeled shoes be more comfortable, but also the foot injuries can be reduced with the help of insoles. And there are many kinds of high-heeled shoe insoles. The following is a brief introduction of how to choose a pair of suitable insoles for high-heeled shoes.
Distinguish by size
1. Full length insoles
The design of the full length insoles
can provide support for the full sole of the foot, so it is also one of the most comfortable optional insole types. Although the typical full-sole insole is relatively thick and needs more space at the head of the shoe, the full-sole insole specially made for high-heeled shoes is light and thin, which makes it well adapted to high-heeled shoes.
2. Half length insoles
The half size insole is specially made for supporting the heel. It has no supporting function for the front part of the foot. However, compared with full-sole insoles, half-sole insoles have higher
adaptability and can be used together with high-heeled shoes with toes exposed.
This type of insole has good support for heel and arch. 3/4 length insoles
also can prevent heel slippage and friction if the shoe is too large or the foot perspires easily. Another advantage of three-quarters insoles is to improve a person's foot position by redistributing the load range from toe to heel. It makes your feet more comfortable and improves your posture so that you can walk more gracefully.
4. Metatarsal insoles
Compared with other insoles, this insole is much smaller and placed under the metatarsal bones, which helps to reduce the pressure and tension of the metatarsal bones.
It is very important to choose suitable support according to one's own feet. Because different foot sizes and different foot types have different requirements for support. Buyers need to choose suitable insoles according to high-heeled shoes they wear and their evaluation of their own foot types.
Common materials of insoles
There are a variety of materials offered to custom insoles for high-heeled shoes. It is advisable to choose materials with good patience and comfort.
Leather is a common material. Cow leather is characterized by hardness and firmness, which is suitable for those who need strong arch support.
Rubber insoles are mostly used for height-increasing shoes and are divided into hard rubber and soft rubber. Hard rubber is usually selected for insoles that are durable and not easily damaged. Soft rubber makes your feet feel softer and more comfortable.
