Foot or Back Pain? Ditch Your Flip-Flops

As summer months roll on and we near August, typically the hottest and driest part of the year, you can expect to see more people wearing sandals or flip-flops.

Considering they are easy to put on, allow the feet to enjoy some air and are able to get wet it would seem that flip-flops would be the perfect footwear for this time of year. However, the ease of use and low price can come at a high cost.

Due to the lack of support and the fact that most flip flops are made from foam or gel materials, they often cause many users to experience foot, ankle and leg pain, including tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and even stress fractures.  In addition, A 2009 study conducted by the University of Miami also found that one pair of flip-flops can even house more than 18,000 different types of bacteria.

It’s time to ditch the flip-flops and invest in a new pair of SmartCells insoles to keep your feet, ankles and legs comfortable all summer long.

SmartCells Insoles are available in three styles that easily slip into most shoes:  a Standard flat style, for use with or without orthotics, as well as Therapeutic and Active Orthotic styles that offer additional arch and heel support, personalized for size and tuned to the nature of the users’ activities.

SmartCells insoles cushion and return energy which reduces fatigue and pain associated with standing and walking activities.

SmartCells insoles utilize our renowned and trusted SmartCells cushioning technology that is distinguished by the array of “Smart” cells that cushion and absorb force like miniature springs, and are highly responsive to changes in pressure, so that when an individual’s weight is shifted they return their stored energy.

The SmartCells® anti-fatigue technology is significantly different than typical foam or gel products, which can break down quickly and lack some critical features to optimize fatigue relief.  SmartCells insoles become softer as they are compressed, just the opposite of foam, and are highly responsive, unlike gel.  The result is an extraordinarily comfortable cushion that actively adjusts to body movements and is unique to any insole on the market.

SmartCells Insoles: I feel good.
