Take out the original (if removable) insoles of your shoes! If you do not have shoes with removable insoles, make sure that there is no built-in arch lift in it. Built in arch lifting shoes do not work with customized insoles! In addition, make sure that there is enough space for your feet with customized insoles.
Place the customized insole aligned to the heel of the shoe. The insole must have 2-3 mm space to be able to move back and forth. If the insole is too long and it tightens up in the heel area of the shoe, you have to adjust it to the right size. Go see the instructions down below. To make sure that you placed the left and right insoles properly inside of the shoe, you have to check if the perforations of the longitudinal arch lifting section is located in the inner edge of the shoe (see). If the insole is under tension or it doesn’t fit into the shoe, it have to be corrected. Only the toes-side of the insoles can be cut. Please don’t “correct” the shape at the heel-end of the insoles.
Remove the original insole from your shoe.
Lay down the custom insole, and then place the original insole on top of it. Align the two insoles by their heel area and inner edge. Outline the original insole with a pen onto the custom insole.
Cut the custom insole along the marked line.
Insert the cropped personalized insole to the original insole’s place. The insole’s size is perfect if it can move 1-2 mm along with your foot forward and backward inside of the shoe.
1. You should loosen the shoe laces and velcros through their whole length. Open the upper part of the shoe as wide as possible.
2. The heel part of the three-quarter insoles must be fitted to and pushed onto with strength to the heel part of the shoe.
3. Place the shoe almost horizontally when you put it on, to prevent the insole from crawling forward, when your foot is pushed into the shoe.
4. Then, put your foot with the shoe on the floor, stand up and check if the insole is in its right place or not.
5. The footwear with insole fits to your foot correctly if the plantar of your foot is supported by the insole properly at the areas concerned and during use the insole doesn’t become uncomfortable. If the insole presses your plantar of your foot or if it is uncomfortable, it is not inserted to the right place.
6. If the insole fits well into the footwear, you may pull the shoelace thoroughly or fix the buckles or the velcro properly.
7. The box of the insole contains adhesive spots recommended to use with three-quarter-sized insoles. We suggest to use these, if the insole must be fixed against any removal within the shoe. Pull the covering paper from one side of the spot and stick it to the middle part of the heel of the insole’s bottom side.
8. Lastly, pull down the paper from the other side of the adhesive spot and insert and fix the insole in the inside of the shoe.
