Biocorrect, LLC


When you’re looking for foot arch support, there are many products that are worth considering. Because arch support products can make a notable difference in your day-to-day movements, it’s important to learn about what to look for when exploring your options. 

We’ll talk about when you should look for foot arch support products and what things an effective arch support should include.

Why you should find a foot arch support product

Your arch refers to the area on the bottom of your foot that stretches between the ball of your foot and your heel. While many people have a medium arch, it’s also common to have high arches or flat feet, both of which can cause pain and medical conditions.

It’s important that your arch has support because it contributes to:

  • Proper posture.
  • Shock absorption.
  • Propulsion forward while moving.

4 things to keep in mind while looking for a foot arch support product

Not every arch support is the same. What works for one person might not work for another. When you’re determining what to look for when choosing an arch support, it’s important to remember that it should include things that will help your specific feet and their issues.

Here are four things to look for when choosing an arch support product:

  • Support — As the name would suggest, support is the No. 1 thing to look for in an arch support device. It should provide your foot and ankle with the stability needed to reduce the risk of injury while reducing pain by evenly distributing your weight across your foot.
  • Correct size — An arch support is only effective if it fits your foot and shoe size. A support device that’s too big or small won't stay in place while you move, causing further discomfort.
  • Works for your arch height — Every arch needs support, whether it's high, low or in between. There are many support products that are designed to work for specific arches, so make sure you choose a product that will work for your arch height to reduce the risk of pain.
  • Comfort — One of the most essential aspects of any foot product is comfort. An arch support product should include the right amount of cushion to increase comfort while providing shock absorption required to minimize the impact of your feet hitting the floor while walking.
