Foot inserts and orthotics both refer to devices that are placed inside the shoe to provide support and address foot-related issues. However, foot inserts are typically generic, over-the-counter products designed to offer cushioning and minor support, while orthotics are custom-made devices prescribed by healthcare professionals to address specific foot conditions and provide personalized support, correction, and alignment for improved foot function and overall biomechanics.
To choose the correct size for foot inserts, start by measuring your feet accurately using a ruler or a foot measuring device. Match your measurements to the size chart provided by the foot insert manufacturer, ensuring you select the closest size to your foot length and width. If in between sizes, opt for the larger size for a more comfortable fit. Additionally, consider the type of footwear you plan to use the inserts with, as some shoes may require slightly different sizing to accommodate the inserts properly.
