Powerstep insoles have been around for a while now. One thing I quite like about this company's product roster is that there aren't that many choices. Some other insoles companies seem to have a different kind of insert for every single type of shoe and foot condition in the world. Powerstep, on the other hand, decided to simplify the process. They have five different kinds of insoles available. Now, just because they don't have that many products to choose from, doesn't mean they don't make good stuff. The opposite is actually quite true. Powerstep claims to be the podiatrists prescription for pain relief. In this article, we'll look at the different types of Powerstep insoles available.

The most popular type of shoe inserts that Powerstep makes are simply known as the Full Length inserts. If you don't know exactly what you want out of an orthotic insole, these are probably a good place to start. They're marketed as a prescription like arch-support and feature a double layered insole for extra cushioning. If you suffer from heel pain or arch pain, these full length inserts will do you some good. They'll also help to align your body and improve your posture. These inserts are available in 10 different sizes for a variety of men's and women's shoes types.

The Pinnacle is another type of insole from Powerstep. This one is made from EVA foam is generally accepted as being a notch better than the Full Length inserts discussed above. These too, come in a variety of sizes for both men and women. The third type of Powerstep insole is the SlimTech. This is quite similar to the shoe inserts discussed thus far. They offer support and comfort while relieving general lower body pain. The thing that makes these inserts unique is the fact that they are thin. Many people with narrow feet have a difficult time finding shoes that fit them. It's even tougher to find insoles that fit inside these narrow shoes! Because of this, narrow footed men and women are often forced to trim a full size insole down to an appropriate size. This isn't really an ideal solution and so Powerstep took the time and effort to develop a narrow insole. They fit nicely into slip on shoes as well as dress shoes and casual shoes.

The final two types of orthotic shoe inserts from Powerstep have fairly specific applications. One is called the Arch Booster. This is basically designed specifically for overweight men and women. It offers many of the same benefits and features of the Pinnacle insole so I won't bother going into too much detail on this one. It should be noted, though, that any orthotic insoles meant for overweight people can also be worn by folks with flat feet. The second type of special Powerstep insole is named the Metatarsal Relief. Metatarsal is basically just a fancy word for the front part of your foot. Understandably, this insole is all about supporting and cushioning the frontal foot.

So while Powerstep doesn't offer as many products as Spenco Insoles or Superfeet Insoles, the items they do have are solid. Give them a try to see if they work for you!
