Are insoles supplied in pairs?


Yes. They should also be worn as a pair, unless specifically advised otherwise by a clinician. Insoles will create posture improvements that are best mirrored to both limbs. They can also generate slight elevation changes. If you have continued problems with only one limb, see a professional to check for leg length difference (which isn’t uncommon).

How long will they last?


Indefinitely. They carry a lifetime wear guarantee and will function consistently, indefinitely.


Why might I need insoles?


Most of us would benefit from arch support insoles. Our feet are not designed to walk on hard surfaces and most footwear has insufficient support. Our feet are designed to pronate but not over pronate (or flatten). There are a number of pronation related conditions of the foot, ankle and knee, that can be eliminated quickly and permanently by effective arch support.

Should I wear them all the time?

Yes, or (at least) whenever practical. Your feet will benefit from arch support whenever you are on a hard surface, whether running, walking or even just standing. This includes around the house, which is often overlooked (slippers are mostly ineffective).

Should I remove any existing insoles?


Yes. Our insoles are designed to provide all the support you need. Any existing insole or liner will just distort the effect.

What does “evidence-based” mean?


The geometry of the Salford Insole was proven during two years of patient trials. The features that contribute to its effectiveness can be viewed here <link>


How long has the Salford Insole been around?


We’ve been supplying the NHS and the professional podiatry profession for nearly fifteen years. Since the first lockdown associated with COVID, we’ve made this device available directly to the public. You will be investing in a tried and tested device that will last indefinitely.


Should I get soft insoles for extra comfort?


No. A lot of marketing material promotes soft cushioning for painful heels (in the case of Plantar Fasciitis), but this is targeting the symptoms and not the cause. Firm is best for active people.


How important is footwear choice?

Very. Footwear should be well fitting and fit for purpose. Most footwear is produced cheaply, with only notional attempts at providing accurate arch support. This is particularly common with most company issued safety and/or occupational footwear. Footwear choices should be made with insoles in mind for those of us that need them. As shoes age, this function becomes inconsistent.
