How do I know if I need orthotics or not?

If a simple fix is all that is required these orthotics are an extremely cost effective solution to a problem that, if left untreated can lead to months or years of discomfort.

INSTRUCTIONS - Check sizing chart
Select the appropriate size according to the International Sizing Guide Table below and once you receive your orthotics, place them into your shoes so that the orthotic is hard up against the heel. Before entering your foot into the shoe, ensure that the laces are loose, so that you don’t dislodge the orthotic when sliding your foot into your shoe. Please note: if your shoe has an arch support inner sole, you can choose to remove it so as not to over-correct your arch.
If this is your first experience of wearing orthotics, or it has been a long time since you’ve worn them, it is important to wear them in. Try 1-2 hours on the first day, and gradually increase the duration of wearing them until they feel completely comfortable in your shoe. This will usually take 5-7 days to become accustomed to wearing them full time.
To clean your orthotics, simply wipe them with a warm, soapy cloth and leave to dry. Do not soak them in water and do not put them in the washing machine.
It is advisable to replace your orthotics every 18 months.
