The Spring Plate - Carbon/Graphite Fiber Insert relieves forefoot pain and arch pain and includes a small toe spring, enabling forefoot roll-off. These insoles are designed to limit the range of motion in your midfoot and forefoot, helping with many conditions such as capsulitis, metatarsalgia, Morton's neuroma, arch pain, arthritis, turf toe, hallux limitus and metatarsal fractures. Medium width only, 1/16" thick.
Spring Plate - Carbon/Graphite Fiber Inserts are NOT heat moldable. Do not modify the Spring Plate - Carbon/Graphite Fiber Insert on a grinder without respiratory protection. Grinding Carbon/Graphite will create extremely small carbon graphite particles that may be hazardous to your health.
Sizing: We strongly suggest that you use length rather than shoe size as the determining factor in deciding what size plate to purchase. The best method is to take an insole out of a shoe you wear regularly and measure it from the back of the heel to the tip of the toe. Then choose a plate that is slightly shorter than your insert, so that it can be placed underneath the insole of your shoe.
Because the Spring Plate - Carbon/Graphite Fiber Insert is very rigid we suggest wearing it beneath insoles, either your shoes' existing insoles or over-the-counter insoles such as the Pedag SOFT Shoe Insoles. If you wear a half-size we recommend the smaller size.

Spring Plate - Carbon/Graphite Fiber Insert are used to treat forefoot pain, forefoot capsulitis, forefoot bursitis, metatarsalgia, forefoot callus, Morton's neuroma, Freiberg's infraction, arch pain, metatarsal fractures, cuboid syndrome and arthritis of the forefoot and midfoot.
Foot Care Tip! What are the differences among carbon/graphite fiber inserts sold on Myfootshop.com? Spring Plates are ultra-thin, full-length arch supports. A toe spring creates a forefoot rocker, off-loading forefoot pain. Turf toe plates are thin, unfinished 3/4-length, carbon graphite arch supports with a rigid Morton's extension. They're best suited for problems in and around the great toe joint including hallux limitus and hallux rigidus. Hallux Trainer Inserts are a full length finished carbon/graphite insert with Morton's extension that have the same indications as turf toe plates. Flat Carbon Fiber Plates contain no arch support or toe spring. They're recommended for metatarsal fractures and midfoot arthritis. Flat Carbon Fiber Plates are also used as an impenetrable plate to protect against puncture wounds of the foot. Myfootshop Carbon Fiber Foot Orthotics are a traditional full length or 1/2 length finished carbon/graphite orthotic that may be used for sport, work or everyday use.
