At Best Slippers, we understand your feet. We have made it our mission to support and care for them by bringing you comfortable, functional and quality footwear. This collection of slippers with removable insoles is designed to do just that: To provide ultimate support and comfort to your hard-working feet, in attractive and stylish slipper designs.
Did you know that your feet carry your entire weight over the equivalent of 15 miles (just over 24 kilometers) in a normal working day? That’s even longer than a half marathon, which is 13 miles (21 kilometers). Your feet are the hardest working part of your body, and they assist you in some of the most basic functions of living. In the daily process of life and living, your feet can change structurally, resulting in re-shaping over time. This can give rise to a number of foot conditions, requiring interventions such as:
Changes in our footwear
Introduction of footwear aids
Or a combination of 1–3
In many cases, the footwear aids introduced to manage foot problems are in the form of shoe inserts, which are used in addition to or to replace the in-built footbed of your shoes. Shoe inserts in this case are referred to as removable insoles.
At Best Slippers, we care for your feet and have partnered with podiatrists to bring you clogs and slippers that work to support your feet. We have put together this amazing collection of slippers with removable insoles, to cater for feet which need prescription inserts, or additional insole support of different kinds.
This collection of slippers with removable insoles is designed to provide your feet with the best support and comfort they need as you carry out your daily activities, whether you have regular feet or if you have special feet (feet with medical conditions). Take a look at this collection.
What’s the Insole and Where is it found in Shoes?
The insole, also called the footbed, refers to the inner part of a shoe that supports the bottom of the foot. The insole runs along the bottom of the foot within the shoe, and provides the foot with support. Insoles are crafted in different styles according to the brand of shoe, and may be flat, curved or anatomically shaped. They may also be fixed or removable.
At Best Slippers, we craft slippers with removable insoles to allow you to manage your insole comfort according to the unique needs of your feet. And this feature cuts across the Best Slipper footwear including our clogs, house slippers, indoor-outdoor slippers, and much more. In fact, our Haflinger® slippers are highly recommended for their insole support and removable footbeds.
Why is Insole Support Important?
The arches of your feet are responsible for absorbing impact as we walk all day long. Arches take the brunt of the pressure exerted on our feet with each stride. Since the foot arch is supported on the insole of your slipper, ensuring that your footwear provides good insole support goes a long way in protecting your foot arches.
Another reason why insole support is important is because of physical changes that happen to your feet. The physical structure of feet may change due to four main factors:
Onset of medical conditions such as arthritis, plantar fasciitis, diabetes, etc.
Accidents and medical interventions
Pregnancy in women
These four factors may affect the foot structure and the arches, which may necessitate wearing of specialized footwear that specifically supports the arches.
So insole support provides arch support, which is really important for posture support, walking gait and ultimately to avoid leg and spine complications in the long-term. At the Best Slippers collection, we have brought together a variety of beautiful designs of slippers with removable insoles, so that you are able to conveniently manage your insole support for yourself.
How Inserts work to help relieve foot pain
The primary function of the insole is to make your shoes more comfortable. However, if you have problem feet or foot conditions which require special support or cushioning, then you probably need to use special insole inserts because the standard ones that come with your regular slippers may not provide you with the correct support you need. Let’s take a look at some of the most common foot conditions that women experience, requiring them to opt for slippers with a removable insoles, so as to be able to use insole supports.
This is one of the most common sources of heel pain. It presents as a stabbing pain that usually occurs at the bottom of the foot, and happens when you take your first steps in the morning. Plantar fasciitis is known to respond well to insoles that have good support. So as you make your selection of shoes and slippers, it’s important to check that they provide you with good insole support. Alternatively, opt for slippers with a removable insole, such as the Haflinger® house slippers, then you can use the shoe inserts that work best for your feet.
Stone Bruise (Metatarsalgia)
Stone bruise is a type of inflammation that occurs at the ball of the foot, with pain usually experienced at the point where the 3 middle toes meet the ball of the foot. The pain sensation is similar to the feeling of walking with a stone inside your shoe, and is worsened by:
Wearing high heels
Wearing dress shoes
Wearing pointy-toe shoes
Wearing soft, highly flexible shoes
Walking barefoot on a hard surface.
Management requires a slipper that helps you spend less time on the ball of your foot, and shoes that don’t compress the toes (no pointy-toe heels).
In most cases, wearing a clog or slipper with the correct insole support will slow down the degenerative process of this condition.
This is a condition where the toe has an abnormal bend in the middle of the toe joint, causing it to curl. In women, the most common cause is wearing heels that are too high. It starts out as an imbalance in the foot muscles, forcing bones and joints to compensate. When you wear shoes that don’t fit properly, your toes are forced to bend in unnatural positions, forcing them against the front of your footwear in a hammer or claw-like position.
What really helps to alleviate this condition would be:
Wearing shoes with a high toe box
Placing insoles with a deeper heel cup into your footbed
The Best Slippers range of shoes with removable insoles is an excellent choice for this condition. This collection features slippers and clogs with a rounded front and roomy toe box, to allow some wriggle room for your feet.
Fallen Arches (Acquired Flatfoot or PTTD)
Fallen arches occur when the tendon that holds up the arch of your foot, and supports it as you walk becomes inflamed or torn. This may happen through:
Injury to the foot
When you have fallen arches, you tend to experience pain on the inside of the foot & ankle, or pain on the outside of the ankle. This pain often gets worse with activity.
For early intervention measures, it’s advisable to wear:
An insole or orthotic insert, as advised by your doctor
These are useful in helping to reduce symptoms and help maintain structural integrity of your foot. The Haflinger® brand carries slippers and clogs that offer wide-based toe shoes, as well as options with removable insoles in which you can insert your own customized or orthotic insoles.
There are many other conditions affecting our feet, and the four we have touched on are just some out of the many. All in all, what Best Slippers stands for is to be able to provide slippers with removable insoles, that are versatile enough to be worn with your own standard, customized or orthotic inserts.
