Insoles are standard on many running shoes and are used by almost everyone. But insoles are also often overlooked by us. However, the insole we are talking about is only suitable for walking, not for running. Running requires specifications higher than the average. Runners should find the insoles that suit them best according to their own feet. Of course, this insole should also match the running shoes. If the insole is not suitable, during the running, an embarrassing scene may happen: the insoles creep out of the running shoes.
So how our runner choose a pair of insole? What characteristics a pair of running insoles
First, the insole should fit your feet. Different designs depend on different feet. Secondly, there must be a good air permeability. If you step on the puddle carelessly during running, it will be very uncomfortable. Thirdly, insoles should have certain friction to avoid slipping your feet in your shoes, which can reduce the harm caused in running. Fourth, insoles should have a certain cushioning force. Although the insoles are thinner in design, they must be cushioned to reduce knee injury during running. And the foot feeling of running has also been greatly improved.
Commonly the insoles along with the shoes we buy are not the best, but they must be the best for that pair of shoes. When you buy this pair of shoes, you also like the feeling of it. So the original insole is also a good choice. Many sports brands have independently designed running insoles, generally with three materials. The first one is the silica gel material. The insoles made of this are generally soft and have good cushioning property. But one of the biggest problems is air-tight. So it is not recommended to choose. The second material is Ortholite, which has the characteristics of ventilating, sweat absorption, deodorization, mildew resistance, cushioning and air permeability. This kind of insole generally does not differ from the factory insole. It has good elasticity and wears resistance. So more attention can be paid to it. The third is multi-material, which emphasizes the main feature of functional running insoles is multi-material splicing. This insole is also specially designed for running, with cushioning material at the heel and forefoot. This insole will weigh more and cost more. However, this kind of insole is not suitable for lightweight running shoes with better wrapping and running shoes with less size. The fourth is UP insole, which is a synthetic material. It is very strong, durable and cheap. This insole will not harden and become brittle. Nowadays, many enterprises begin to use this material to produce multi-functional insoles.
