What are the orthotics made from?

Orthotics can be hard or soft and are made from durable material to ensure the foot is getting the support and comfort it needs.

The common question we get asked is “What are orthotic innersoles made from?” And that’s a great question. There are three major materials that we used across most of the orthotics. They are Polyurethane, EVA, and Poron.

The Polyurethane that we used is a close cell foam so what this means is that the foam is made of a thousand little basketballs so when you compress them they rebound back to their original shape.

The EVA foam is an open cell foam and what this does is it allows to compress and mold to the customer’s foot a little better than the polyurethane foams. So this are great when you’ve got a foot that is a little bit lumpy or bumpy and these two will accommodate some certain lumps and bumps in your feet.

And Poron lastly is the product that we used to cushion the high impact areas such as the heel and the fore foot.

So our orthotic combine the properties of these three materials, to help to support and cushion as best possible to give you comfortable feet.
