Free UK Delivery
Are you sick of those first agonising steps out of bed in the morning? Or after you have been sat down? Is it painful when you walk or run?
Our proven orthotic insoles will help those suffering from heel pain and plantar fasciitis. As well as giving relief and comfort, they have been designed to correct the cause of the problem by helping to align the feet to their correct position.
PlantarFix Orthotic Med Support – Slimfit
Our Slimfit orthotic insoles are made from a comfortable EVA material with a foam top. It assists in supporting the arches of your feet, so stopping them from rolling inwards as you walk or run. This takes the strain away from the plantar fascia helping to cure or prevent plantar fasciitis.
They are made from a tough but thinner material than our other insoles which allows them to fit into more types of shoes.
The medium support offered by these high quality slimfit orthotic insoles can provide immediate relief. The super soft gel heel insert helps reduce heel pain substantially and there is also extra support and cushioning for the forefoot.
As this type of orthotic insoles provide medium support, it is especially effective for those with normal arches (or for people with flat arches who want extra support and cushioning). If you aren’t sure which insoles for plantar fasciitis are right for you, visit our help page here.

What are orthotic insoles and how do they work?
If you are suffering from heel pain or have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, then orthotic insoles can help. They are placed inside the shoes and worn throughout the day. They act not only as shock absorbers to relieve the heel pain, they also structurally support the foot, curing or preventing the problem.
What is plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is much more common than you think, affecting approximately 10% of the population. The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot, from the heel bone to the toes. When this ligament or tissue becomes inflamed it causes heel pain - plantar fasciitis.
Misalignment of your feet can cause this problem as can overuse – it is very common among runners and athletes.
Does plantar fasciitis affect everybody?
It can, but in general, it is those who have to spend long periods of time on their feet, athletes or those who are overweight who tend to be prone to plantar fasciitis. But for some unlucky people, there is no identifiable reason as to why they suffer. Orthotic insoles can help alleviate this problem.
What are the symptoms of plantar fasciitis?Although it varies between individuals, the majority of sufferers describe it as a sharp intense pain in the heel. Generally, symptoms tend to be worse first thing in the morning and after long periods of sitting or standing.
