How often do you come home from work after a hard day and your feet hurt? More often than not, improper footwear is what you’re doing wrong. It’s not very cost effective to buy new shoes every time your feet hurt, however, it is easier to insert some insoles into your budget.
It’s important to have correct footwear because everything in your body is connected. If your feet are hurting, eventually, your calves, knees and quads are going to suffer, not to mention your back and your posture.
What if I told you that your suffering could end? An innovative startup company called SOLS could be the answer to your sore feet woes. SOLS uses a 3D printer to customize and create orthotics that can be inserted into nearly any shoe. According to their website, the insoles are thin and highly durable. Another plus to investing in these orthotics is the price point, “While a custom in-sole would typically cost between $300 and $700 from a podiatrist, SOLS sells its in-soles for $125 and its founder Kegan Schouwenburg, wants to eventually bring that down to $50.” (source).
We all know that the squeaky wheel gets the grease, but to prevent that wheel from ever squeaking, don’t wait until you have chronic pain in your feet to do anything about it. Prevention is the best medicine which applies to your feet as well. Wearing these custom orthotics will prevent chronic issues from occurring so that you can avoid the pain before it starts. But, don’t worry, if you have chronic issues with your feet, these insoles will also treat the problems you have now.
According to their website, “SOLS are designed to eliminate foot and joint pain with responsive shock absorbing support while empowering you to move freely.”
“STEP INTO THE FUTURE
Everyday over three hundred and fifty podiatrists, chiropractors, and physical therapists nationwide choose SOLS for their custom orthotic needs. Join the revolution.”

If you’re a little old-fashioned and don’t feel like going through a website to order your insoles, then finding a local participator in SOLS is for you. SOLS has teamed up with 350 podiatrists and chiropractors who use its app to scan patients’ feet and then order the in-soles for them.
The orthotics are uniquely designed for your body, life and style. And, the turnaround time for receiving your insoles is amazing, after the doctor takes three pictures of your feet with the app, which collects thousands of data points, you will receive your orthotics in six days.
