Other Foot Care Tips
Orthotics are an excellent option if you want to keep your feet supported and comfortable, but they are only part of a broader foot care plan. Check out some of the other products below and protect yourself against all of the most common foot conditions.
Get Started With Heel Cups
In some cases, a full-foot orthotic isn’t necessary to achieve the pain relief you’re looking for. Plastic heel cups are an option that can absorb shock, to ease the aches that come with conditions like plantar fasciitis. Gel and silicone options are also available, depending on your preference.
Specific conditions like crooked toes require support that goes beyond the standard orthotics. Toe separators are a good option that can improve circulation while also realigning toes to improve gait and increase comfort.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are the best insoles for standing on concrete or hard surfaces all day?

A: The most comfortable insoles are typical constructed of gel. While every one has different preferences, insoles with less of an arch tend to provide more cushion and comfort rather than arch support. If that's what you're looking for I would recommend the Full Length Gel Insoles by Envelop.
