Walking is a great way to raise the heart rate and get some exercise. However, an unsupportive walking shoe can make the experience painful, especially for those who suffer from overpronation or other conditions such as plantar fasciitis. Adding walking insoles to your shoes may help.
What types of insoles are for walking?
When people look for insoles for walking, they can mean insoles for sneakers, insoles for a daily walk, or insoles for hiking. In any case, these types of shoes are typically full-volume shoes with removable insoles. Because of this, a full-length insole with a higher degree of arch support and added cushion is usually the best fit.
For Walking We Recommend:
The A series provides a moderate degree of cushion and arch support, which can help redistribute pressure and allow for better overall alignment. It is very suitable for daily wear of regular shoes, such as walking shoes, sports training shoes and work boots. The A series uses 3angni' s patented alignment technology to provide the structure and comfort you need.
Do you need insoles for hiking?
Just like walking, hiking also requires proper foot mechanics to avoid pain and discomfort. Beyond that, hiking can also add the pressure of repeated impact to the feet at multiple angles due to the uneven terrain of hiking trails. If the factory insoles provided by the hiking boots fail to provide the proper amount of arch support, cushion, or alignment, a hiking insole may be needed to prevent injury or discomfort.
How to choose the best walking shoes？
Walking shoes, like any other shoes, need to fit comfortabley without slipping across the back of the heel when taking a step or squeezing in any direction in the toe box. The insoles should provide both cushion and arch support , which can be added with an after-factory insole if needed. A walking shoe with a flat insole will not provide much structure.
