Hiking Orthotics


Hiking entails long walks over uneven and often slippery surfaces. The heel, arch, and ball of the foot absorb most of the pressure and require the most support. However, the heel area is most susceptible to injury while hiking. Ankle sprains, shin splints, and Achilles tendonitis can all result if the heel is not adequately supported.

Our hiking orthotics have helped many hikers by providing enhanced support to the heel and back of the foot. Our hiking orthotics can make hikes more comfortable and allow you to pursue longer hikes. Hiking orthotics can also be a great aid to avoid ankle sprains, shin splints, and other injuries common to hiking.

For more serious hikers, we often make specialized hiking orthotics - optimized for the forces found in hiking. With the right hiking orthotic you will enjoy more comfortable and longer hikes, with far fewer of the injuries often found in hikers.
