Insolia Heels


Insolia Heels is the only product that has been proven to shift weight and reduce pressure on the forefoot in high heels. Insolia Heels is not padding, because padding does not shift weight or reduce pressure. Padding just creates the brief illusion of comfort. Insolia Heels cause a precise bio-mechanical adjustment to the position of the foot that shifts weight off the forefoot and back to the heel.

Padding just creates the brief illusion of comfort. Insolia Heels cause a precise bio-mechanical adjustment to the position of the foot that shifts weight off the forefoot and back to the heel.

The Innovation

Simply put: Insolia Heels shifts weight back to the heel, which reduces pressure, corrects posture and body alignment, increases ankle stability and makes the shoe more comfortable.

Technically put: Insolia Heels creates a subtle alteration in pitch that causes the calcaneus (heel bone) to delicately dorsiflex, thus negating the plantar-flexion created by the inclined slope of a high heel shoe.

  • Insolia Heels shift weight to the heel (A)
  • A metatarsal balance point (B) evens out weight distribution at the ball of the foot
  • Unlike cushioning, Insolia Heels fixes the causes of pain.
    • Decreases pressure on the ball of the foot
    • Improves body alignment, balance and ankle stability
    • Reduces leg and lower back fatigue

The Implementation

The Insolia Heels component is in the form of an insole supplement that is added to an insole board after lasting and before the sock (and any foam) is added.  No changes to lasts or styling are required.  Insolia Heels can be used in any type of shoe construction and is designed to cover the full women's size range in all size scales (EU, US, UK, Asia).  Insolia Heels can be used in any high heel shoe, boot, sandal or wedge with a heel of 40 mm or higher.

Insolia Achilles


Our new product, Insolia Achilles, is the only product proven to prevent heel slipping and foot movement. Insolia Achilles is an added heel counter pad that only tightens the fit in the heel. Insolia Achilles works by gripping the heel bone of the foot from the sides, avoiding both the Achilles Tendon and the Sural Nerve. And it adjusts to your foot during the course of the day.

Either on its own, or in combination with Insolia Heels or Insolia Flex, Insolia Achilles improves the fit of your shoes in the critical heel area. This benefit is immediatelly noticed by your customers at the point of purchase.

The Innovation

Simply put: Insolia Achilles stabilizes and secures the foot inside the shoe, which reduces slippage and subsequent heat buildup and the potential for heel blister formation.

Technically put Insolia Achilles uses two unique sections, one on the inside (medial) side of the heel and the other on the outside (lateral) side.  Both work together to hold and stabilize the heel bone (calcaneus) to hold and stabilize the heel within the shoe without compromising fit and with automatic adjustment during the course of the day.

Benefits Of Insolia Achilles

  • Your Customers Feel a Perfect Fit in the Heel Area
  • Your Customers Feel Your Shoes are More Stable
  • Your Customers Feel Your Shoes are More Secure
  • Your Customers Feel Less Movement of their heel in Your Shoes
  • Your Customers Feel Less Heel Slippage when wearing Your Shoes
  • Your Customers Feel Your Shoes "Hug" Their Feet
 

The Implementation

The Insolia Achilles Component is simply glued to the backside of the heel (counter) lining before lasting. No changes to lasts or styling are required. Insolia Achilles can be used in any shoe construction that has a heel counter. There are left and right parts in one size for women’s shoes and left and right parts in another size for men’s shoes.

How it Works

The human heel bone (calcaneus) is wider at its lowest point than in the middle. When the heel slips in shoes, the shape of this bone is used to anchor the heel and foot within the shoe. Insolia Achilles is bio-mechanically shaped and made in material that holds and stabilizes the heel within the shoe without compromising fit, and automatically adjusts to the changing foot size during the course of a day. Insolia Achilles works using two unique sections, one on the inside (medial) side of the heel and the other on the outside (lateral) side. Both work together to grip the heel and provide the benefits of improved fit, reduced heel slippage and overall foot stabilization.

Insolia Flex


Insolia Flex is the only product proven to allow natural flexing of the foot as you walk or run and proven to provide more efficient walking and running. Insolia Flex improves the bio-mechanics of the shoe to allow for natural foot flexing resulting in a more efficient gait while requiring less oxygen.

Insolia Flex improves the bio-mechanics of the shoe to allow for natural foot flexing resulting in a more efficient gait while requiring less oxygen.

The Innovation

Simply put: Insolia Flex makes walking and running in all types of men's and women's shoes easier and more comfortable. 

Technically put: Insolia Flex dramatically improves foot flexion and efficiency with a precisely engineered asymetrical depression that allows the foot’s pivot point, the ball of the foot, to function as it was meant to by dropping, which then causes the arch to lift.  This allows the foot to flex naturally and push off efficiently to lift the body and move forward. This increases the efficiency of walking so much that testing has shown reduced oxygen demand and greater stride length.

Insolia Flex can be implemented in various ways to meet your needs, regardless of shoe construction.  A typical application would use the Insolia Flex Component which is in the form of an insole supplement.  The Component is glued, before lasting, to the insole board, or the sock, along with the surrounding foam.  No changes to lasts or styling are required.  The Insolia Flex Component comes in five sizes that cover men's and women's  shoes in all size scales (EU, US, UK, Asia).

Insolia Flex is designed to allow proper foot function during the walking or running gait cycle.

Insolia Flex is for use in any men’s or women’s shoes, boots, sandals, athletic shoes and hiking shoes, with no heel or heels 35 mm or lower.  

The Implementation

Insolia Flex comes in two product forms:

  1. A small insole supplement to be added to the insole board or sock before lasting, along with any foam being glued to the insole board or sock. 
  2. A CAD electronic file so as to add Insolia Flex to any type (EVA, PU, Open Cell, etc.) of molded insole or foot bed.
