The Skinny arch support is a versatile companion in a wide variety of dress, athletic and leisure shoes. The Skinny arch support is made of a lightweight compound designed to never flatten, crack or break and it carries an exclusive Good Feet® Lifetime Warranty against manufacturer defects. Good Feet® designed the Skinny arch support to allow the feet to relax after a long day without allowing the feet to go flat or fall out of alignment. Its flexibly firm compound gives gently under pressure, yet allows the foot freedom to move.
The heel end of the Skinny arch support features a very slight heel cup designed to help support an active heel without preventing the foot from the natural freedom it enjoys in open-heeled shoes. Sculpted with a smoothly rounded edge, the Skinny’s heel cup helps to protect the heel against excessive step-shock.What does a heel cup do and how can it help?
The Skinny’s heel cup helps to support the transverse arch, which is located in front of the heel. This arch includes a sensitive spot where the very important Plantar Fascia ligament connects to the heel bone. The Skinny arch support helps to maintain the position the heel acquired while wearing the Exerciser and Maintainer arch supports, giving you a complete arch support system. Working with the Exerciser and Maintainer supports, the Skinny arch support can help make sure that the transverse arch is properly supported.
The lower profile of the Skinny’s design allows it to fit comfortably in open-heeled dress shoes with the aid of Good Feet Velcro attached to the bottom of the support.
The smooth curves of the Skinny’s inner and outer longitudinal arch support flex beneath the foot with each step, providing gentle support for the foot’s arches in practically any shoe. The Skinny arch support can improve the comfort and stability of feet in even the “skinniest” of dress shoes.What does inner and outer longitudinal arch support do and how does it help?
The front end of the Skinny arch support tapers off gracefully, allowing the bones that form the top of the foot to relax and experience a comfortable reprieve from the realignment properties of the Exerciser and Maintainer arch supports. Having no metatarsal rise, the Skinny supports three out of four arches in each foot. The most prominent arch support area in the Skinny is the Inner Longitudinal (instep of the foot), which slopes up gracefully to meet the arch height of medium- to lower arches.
Rather than aiming to control the motion of the foot during gait, the Skinny’s job is to make sure you are comfortable in any shoe or activity, especially the shoe styles in which your other arch supports may not fit as comfortably. Wear the Skinny arch support in closed or open-heeled sandals, your water shoes and even your cycling cleats. For those who need an ultra-versatile arch support for practically any shoe, the Skinny arch support is the perfect match.
