The Carbon Graphite Shoe Plate makes shoes more rigid, limiting motion in the midfoot and forefoot in the shoe. A shoe's rigidity or flexibility significantly affects the biomechanical properties of the foot and ankle. Shoe rigidity is important when treating fractures or arthritis of the midfoot or forefoot. Place The Carbon Graphite Shoe Plate beneath the shoe's existing insole, or wear The Carbon Graphite Shoe Plate with an over-the-counter insert or prescription orthotic. Sold individually Left or Right.
Sizing: We strongly suggest that you use length rather than shoe size as the determining factor in deciding what size Carbon Graphite Shoe Plate to purchase. The best method is to take your current insole out of your shoe and measure it from the back of the heel to the tip of the toe. Then choose a plate that is the same length or slightly shorter than your current insert.
Dimensions: Medium width only. 1/8" thick. See individual sizes for length.
Indications - The Carbon Graphite Shoe Plate - Flat is used to treat metatarsal stress fractures, Freiberg's infraction, turf toe, midfoot arthritis and hallux limitus.

The rigidity of these carbon fiber inserts may damage the softer cloth shoe last. Myfootshop.com is not responsible for any damge to your shoes that may be caused by use of these products.
