Foot Care Tip! What are the differences among the carbon graphite fiber insoles sold at Myfootshop.com?
These four carbon fiber plates are best used to treat hallux limitus and hallux rigidus and turf toe:
- Flat Carbon Graphite Turf Toe Plates are thin, 3/4-length inserts that have a rigid Morton's extension and are completely flat.
- Molded Turf Toe Plates are thin, unfinished 3/4-length, carbon graphite arch supports with an arch and rigid Morton's extension.
- Hallux Trainers are full-length, finished insoles with a carbon graphite insert and a semi-rigid Morton's extension.
- Carbon Spring Plates are ultra-thin, full-length arch supports with a toe spring. The toe spring creates a forefoot rocker, off-loading forefoot pain.
