YOUR UGGS NEED EXTRA SUPPORT

YOUR UGGS NEED EXTRA SUPPORT

I love my UGGS!  The comfy feeling I get slipping them on makes my whole body feel good.  The feel of the fur against my feet, ankles and calf reminds me of when I put on mittens to go outside on a snowy day.  I wear them casually to run my errands as well as formally to compliment my cutest outfit when out with my girls.  Honestly, if my husband would let me, I would even consider sleeping in my UGGS.  Plain and simple, UGGS are awesome (UGGS Homepage).

However, the one thing they lack is good arch support.  I do a lot of walking and by the end of the day my feet and legs are tired.  Although I wear orthotic inserts in other shoes, I never really considered them for my UGGS.  This was mostly because I thought it might interfere with that “comfy” feeling I get every time I slip on those wonderful boots.  The comparison that I drew in my mind was putting orthotic insoles into my UGGS would be like putting orthotics into my slippers.

BUT BOY WAS I WRONG!  Not only were the insoles really easy to slip in but I could instantly feel the difference in support that they give my arch.  I think the roominess of the UGGS compliments the use of an orthotic insole.  There is plenty of room for the insole and my feet do not feel cramped inside the boot.  The best part is that my UGGS remained as comfortable as ever and provided me with arch support.  Once I inserted the insoles, I found that having proper arch support made my legs and feet feel more invigorated even after a long day walking around. 

I highly recommend inserting insoles In your UGGS to achieve proper foot care.  If you are lack proper arch support it can lead to the following conditions (Better Health):

• Arthritis
• Bursitis
• Flat feet
• Heel spurs
• Injuries
• Back pain
• Bunions
• Diabetes
• Hammer toes
• High arches
• Plantar fasciitis

You will need to consider your arch type (flat, mid, high) to pick the right inserts when wearing your UGGS.  It is also important to think about how often you will wear your UGGS, since you want a sturdier insert if you wear them daily and for extended periods of time.  These factors will help determine which inserts are the right choice for you. One of the best options includes customizable arch support shoe inserts like SelectFlex.  These orthotic insoles are not typical shoe inserts, as they offer customizeable arch support through their patented PowerLift Arch® suspension system.

Now is the time to make sure that wearing your UGGS is the perfect experience with proper arch support, and you can do that for your feet with SelectFlex Arch Control Insoles. This allows for optimal support and comfort with every step that you take. Along with good routine foot care, you can significantly reduce your risk of serious foot problems.

FLAT FEET vs. HIGH ARCHES

Meta description: This post compares the foot conditions of Flat Feet vs. High-Arch arches. It also gives an award-winning solution to manage both of these conditions.


As a runner for more than three decades, you can say I certainly have experienced my share of foot ailments. Now that I'm in my early 40's, I've come to realize that I want to stay active as long as possible. There is some good news. Runners or anyone else who is flatfooted or has high-arch arches can run free of pain if they follow certain strategies.

Let's compare the differences between being flat-footed and having a high-arch condition. You might identify with any one of them. Next, we can review a proven solution, the one that worked for me.

Flat Feet

Mayo Clinic defines someone who is flat-footed as one who has flat arches. Upon standing, your whole feet touch the floor. Flat-footedness is a common condition. During childhood, the arches may not have developed. Injuries to the area could have also occurred at some point in life.

According to a study conducted by the
Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, flatfootedness is a condition which impacts our quality of life as the 40+ crowd ages. Many times people do not report feeling any pain at all when they are flat-footed.

Symptoms include:

  • Heel or arch pain that increases during physical activity
  • Swollen ankles

High Arches

According to MedlinePlus.gov a high arch area is from the toes to the heel. If you don't have flat soles, you may have a high arch. This condition is rarer than being flatfooted. They're also more painful because the discomfort is in the middle of the foot. This is the part of the foot where the bones join the toes and ankle are called metatarsals. Higher than average arches are caused by a bone or nerve condition.

Symptoms include:

  • Length of the foot is shorter than average
  • Pain while running, standing, or walking
  • A struggle to fit into shoes


I have a high arch condition with occasional Morton's neuroma flare-ups. My high arch condition used to exasperate when I ran long distances. I said "used to" for a reason. Since I found a SelectFlex, I can say that I am happily running again pain-free.

An Effective Solution

The safest remedy for me was and still is SelectFlex Arch control insoles. A high-arch or flat-footed condition can be debilitating. But I always seem to find comfort when I wear my SelectFlex. Matter of fact, it feels like something is missing when I don't have them on throughout the day.

Here's what I like best about these specific orthotic insoles:

Fast and simple customizable arch support - The unique, proprietary arch control adjuster allows me to quickly modify the support. No need to drop the shoe inserts off to a specialist every time I need an adjustment. I can get running again without interruption or having to wait to receive my insoles back from an ortho facility.

Fits my shoe collection - My sneakers and boots are more comfortable. They require medium to thick socks and this works fine with the SelectFlex inserts. Thin socks nor loose type footwear are not recommended for insoles, and understandably so. I want my feet to stay secure, not wobble.

Provides long-lasting wear - I run daily. I can get a good six months of wear out of one pair. They'll last up to a year if I were to stop running and resume "normal" activity. Not a chance!

It's an award-winning solution- SelectFlex won the Industrial Safety and Hygiene News Best Foot Protection Product of 2020 Award. I must say for me, it's also the best non-surgical solution.

SelectFlex brings comfort for those with:

  • flat-feet conditons - having entirely flat soles
  • high arches - having higher than average arches
  • Morton's Nueroma - experiencing nerve pain near the toes
  • plantar fasciitis - feeling a sharp foot pain caused by inflamed tissue near the heel
  • And a host of other foot conditions

SelectFlex is changing lives for people who run like I do, walk, or just stay active in completing their daily chores. You can take control of your foot condition today! Find out more about this special arch support that is working for me. I bet it will do wonders for you too.
