SPECIALIST performance insoles created by a Suffolk-based sport and health facility are to be sold through UK sports and outdoor retail outlets from the end of this month.

The Footfunction Centre, based at Great Blakenham, has created a range of high specification insoles which can be used in trainers or hiking boots. They have been produced using 25,000 separate data based on the workings of the foot in motion.

The Footfunction Centre, owned by RS Scan Lab Ltd, specialises in top level foot care for everyone from professional athletes to young children and produces bespoke orthotics on its premises using intelligent footscan technology.

This is the first time consumers have been able to purchase the company's performance insoles in high street stores. Bente Smith-Rewse, founder and executive director of the Footfunction Centre, said: “We are delighted to now be pushing our performance insoles into retail outlets throughout the UK.

“While orthotics and insoles have always been available to people to buy off the shelf to some degree, these are very special versions which have been devised from a high level of data recordings.

“We are not simply marketing a small, medium and large version, but versions which allow for various foot lengths, for different densities and three different arch heights.

“It is that additional aspect which will ensure far more people are able to find an off-the-shelf insole which is appropriate to them and which benefits them during sport and hiking.”

Available in sizes two to 14, the insoles are priced at £35.

Consumers can assess which insole type is best suited to their feet from explanations on the packaging or by asking store staff who have been trained in how the insoles operate.
