Your Foot’s Arches
The arches of the foot are formed by a combination of bone, muscle and ligament structure. In particular, they consist of three arches, the Medial Longitudinal, Lateral Longitudinal (both just ahead of the heel bone), and Metatarsal (under the center of the metatarsal bones).
The largest and best known of the foot’s arches is the Medial (Longitudinal) arch, which forms the hollow along the inside of the foot. Supporting the Medial arch is done just ahead of the heel along the inner side of the foot. The Lateral arch is opposite the medial, also just ahead of the heel, along the outside of the foot. The Metatarsal (Transverse) arch reaches across the foot immediately behind the ball of the foot.
***Our orthotic products are designed to support the hollow areas of the foot bone structure in a way that simulates the natural environment of the healthy foot, that is, barefoot on soft ground. This provides a normalization of pressures to the feet, better alignment, and better comfort while living on the hard surfaces of modern society.
“One of the best improvements I could have made for my athletic performance and overall health. I am never without my Soft Step orthotics; I highly recommend them to anyone needing an effective means of improving foot performance and body mechanics. Great product and great customer service!”
