5 Ways the Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads are Different

The Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads are ideal for those who work on hard concrete floors.

If you’ve tried searching online for heel inserts, heel support insoles, or a similar name variation, you were likely overwhelmed with the choices.

With so many options available, it can be difficult to determine the differences, and which product would be a good fit for your needs.

The Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads are different from most insoles on the market. We’ve outlined the common features and benefits that set them apart from others.

1. Versatility

Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads are ideal heel orthotic inserts for those who spend long hours on their feet, but the simple design also makes them an excellent choice for anyone who wants a layer of shock-absorbing comfort without the bulk of typical rubbery heel insoles. Wear them in work boots you wear daily on hard concrete, workout shoes you exercise in, or even casual shoes you wear occasionally. You’ll appreciate the benefits regardless of your work or lifestyle.

2 . Multi-purpose pain relief

Although called heel pads, the Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads do more than relieve heel pain. The shoe inserts are designed to relieve aches and discomfort that come from the constant accumulation of microtrauma from standing and walking. Symptoms can vary from specific pain in the foot, ankle, hip, or lower back, to overall joint pain or arthritis. If you stand, walk, or run on hard surfaces such as concrete, the stress on the body is heightened.

Think of the skeletal structure of the body as a closed kinetic chain that begins at when your heel hits the ground. Reducing the shock at the heel strike with a padded layer helps lessen the stress that radiates up into the heel, foot, knee, lower back, and hip.

3. Fit

You’ll find that the majority of over-the-counter orthotics are available in just one size and must be trimmed to fit a shoe. That leaves room for error if you cut them too small or uneven. With the Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads, you’ll choose from three different sizes based on width and length, to better ensure a proper fit in the shoes.

4. Comfort 

The low-profile design of the Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads makes them an easy addition to most any shoe. A tapered design creates a smooth transition to the shoe, for a comfortable feel from day one. Heel cups in a thick rubber don’t always fit well in shoes that have a narrow heel or lower back and can make your    shoes feel tight.

5. Design

A unique open cell, extra firm density foam rubber design provides a layer of comfort that reduces stress up from the heel, without the bulk of more cushioned inserts. The rubber bottom also ensures they stay in place, yet without sticking permanently and making them difficult to remove. A suede cover provides durability and helps the inserts keep their shape. To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth and mild soap.

The Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads are sold as a pair. Order online at: Kinetic Comfort Heel Pads.
