Arch Supports

Arch supports fit by shoe size can be helpful for a variety of foot related conditions. Some off the shelf insoles are designed to mold to your foot’s shape and provide and increased level of support over the stock insole that is supplied with footwear. Other types are supportive and “best fit” meaning that if you fit the makers mold, they have a better chance of helping you. OKAPED stocks a variety of non-custom arch supports because many conditions we treat and support only require this basic help.  These supports are very different from truly custom orthotics that are designed from 3 dimensional models of your feet helping to to provide specific pressure relief, alignment correction and wound care offloading as well altering foot biomechanics when required for conditions that are causing pain or discomfort. We don’t use step on sensor machines that are really just “marketing light shows” because there simply is no evidence they work better than the regular non-custom arch supports available. Most of these machines measure pressure. Pressure sensors don’t provide height or shape measurements so they really don’t know if your arch is 2mm or 2cm off the sensor. They then really just guess at your arch height and arch support required. Insole pressure measurement systems have been around for many years, they are not a diagnostic tool and should not be used as such. At OKAPED if we supply a pre-made arch support that needs a little extra height or support we will simply add it to the device while you wait.

Kneed 3/4 Arch Support


The medial longitudinal arch (typically just called “the arch” of the foot even though you technically have three) is shaped to ensure you have support from your heel to the ball of your foot (at the base of the big toe). The arch shape is based on the most common arch length and height for your shoe size. It is important you fit your arch length so adjust the size you have selected where necessary to ensure the proper fit. Your arch should have a gentle contact point all along the inside shape of the insole. People with lower arches (pes planus) will typically find the additional support of Kneed insoles to be exactly what they were looking for. However, you can apply weight to the heated product to lower the arch support to a comfortable level.

The heel cradle in KNEED2Be is designed to optimally connect with your heel and fit within the heel counter of the shoes you live in. The heel doesn’t push out the heel counter of the shoe, allowing the shoe to hold your heel the way it was meant to without slippage.
