How can orthotics in hiking boots help on the trail?

Biocorrect, LLC


Hiking is a wonderful form of exercise that combines the beauty of nature with a low-impact aerobic workout. However, miles and miles on the trail can add up to aching, sore and even painful feet. Additionally, if there are misalignments and structural issues in the feet, it can actually contribute to the development of other injuries, including ankle pain, knee pain and hip pain. 

Although hiking boots are custom-built to withstand the increased load that hikers can put on them, there can still be advantages to using foot orthotics. Along with giving you more cushioning to help stay comfortable while hiking, the right pair of orthotic insoles can also help to address issues in the feet that can lead to injury in the feet and other areas. 

If you’re exploring the possibility of using orthotics in hiking boots, take some time to look over the following information on key signs that they could be right for you. 

Signs that orthotics in hiking boots may be right for you

If any of the following apply to you, there’s a good chance that orthotics could be an effective solution for your hiking needs: 

  • You regularly hike long distances and experience foot soreness.
  • You’ve tried mass-market inserts without success.
  • You’ve been diagnosed with high or low arches.
  • You’re also experiencing pain in other areas of the body, such as the ankles and knees, during and after hikes.

To get the results you need, it’s important to find a high-quality orthotic that can stand up to the needs that hikers require.
