This is a premium orthotic from FootShox. Working like a vehicle’s hydraulic system, these insoles provide dynamic fluid technology, supporting your feet with every step and relieving painful foot conditions like plantar fasciitis.
As is common with vehicles, a shock absorber is a mechanical device designed to smooth out or damp shock impulse, and convert kinetic energy to another form of energy. So, in a vehicle, shock absorbers reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling.
Shock absorbers use valving of oil and gasses to absorb excess energy from the springs, whereas FootShox insoles use dynamic fluid technology to achieve much the same purpose. The result is a a damping of the impact and a storage of the energy for more effective use. In this combination, “shock absorber” is the perfect description for the benefits that FootShox insoles offer, providing true relief from the impacts of on our feet.
