King Foam

A while ago I posted about the Gamechangers footbeds (DIY orthotics) from Footprint Insole Technology. Since then, they sent me a pair of their new King Foam high impact absorbing insoles made specifically for low-profile and vulcanized skate shoes. You can check the video above for the science behind the things they call kings. I actually put mine in my running shoes… which I haven’t used for several weeks now. Anyways, nice up your sneakers with some of these, your heels will thank you.

Underpronation, overpronation, plantar fasciitis, neuroma, hammer toe, ankle syndesmosis/spraining, and limb length discrepancy. While these words comprise the most boring sentence ever to be posted on RadCollector.com, they are common “foot” issues that many skaters experience. I’m well acquainted with the aforementioned list of podiatric ailments, so I’m no stranger to experimenting with various insoles, custom footbeds, and even medical orthotic insoles.  Here are some of the insoles I have used, the Footprint Insole is on the far left.

footprint-orthoWhen I started skating in eS shoes (or any Sole Technology shoes for that matter), I immediately noticed the high quality of the midsoles and insoles that they use compared to other footwear brands. Then Footprint Insoles came along, and I’ve been wearing them for a while and I must admit, they work pretty good. Check out my friend Theotis Beasley for a product test in action.
