About G8 Insoles
G8 Performance was created with a vision; to change the world’s view about the importance of their feet through promoting ongoing foot health. Our approach to foot health aims to increase athletic performance and reduce injury for everyone from the professional athlete to the weekend warrior and everyone in between. Whether commuting to the office or running a marathon, your feet are integral to all you do.
How G8 Insoles Can Help You Increase Your Performance
Our Insoles provide forefoot support. They are designed to assist the forefoot flex and disperse the maximum amount of energy at impact. They are not designed as a quick fix solution, they have been designed to increase your foot health over the long term. By assisting the foot to strengthen and stretch, the foot becomes stronger which maintains foot bone structure and allows the foot to expel energy more effectively.
They also provide all over foot support. They do this by supporting the foot throughout the entire movement of the gait cycle. Even when there is no weight being placed on the foot the most important part of the foot (that being the front third of the foot as it contains most of the nerve endings and blood supply) is in contact with the flexible arch piece. This contact increases the brains proprioceptive adaptation which encourages your foot to push more energy out and results in you experiencing more forward momentum or power to your pedal stroke.
Our Insoles are fully customisable. Feet come in all shapes and sizes and vary in their levels of flexibility and strength. The G8 Performance ARCHTECH insoles come with an adjustable arch piece that be moved around to suit an individual foot. The Ignite insole is heat mouldable and can be shaped precisely to feet to provide comfort and support.
They come with a flexible arch piece. The flexible arch piece included in the ARCHTECH range of insoles is what allows the foot to be supported throughout the entire range of motion of the gait cycle. The ARCHTECH arch piece flexes to the appropriate amount under load and springs back to its original shape. It is this function that that assists to strengthen and loosen the forefoot and associated muscles and tendons which increases blood flow and reduces numbness.
The functionality of the arch also strengthens to the plantar (underside) of the foot which will in time help to hold the bone structure in place. Collapsed metatarsal bones are the most common source of burning or numbness as well as reduced balance.
A metatarsal pad is inbuilt within the ARCHTECH insoles. Through our own internal testing we have found that the combination of a small metatarsal pad which gently spreads the metatarsal heads combined with the flexible arch piece which gently lifts the metatarsal heads, is far more effective than using a met pad on its own. This combination promotes blood flow which reduces numbness and the potential for injuries such as Moreton's Neuroma.
Heat mouldable, fully customisable. This is the ultimate in heat mouldable insoles.
