The Slimline arch support is made of a medium-rigid compound designed to never flatten crack or break. It carries Good Feet’s exclusive Good Feet® Lifetime Warranty against manufacturer defects. The Slimline arch support is reinforced along the inner longitudinal arch and is designed to provide a firm, yet flexible support for dress or athletic shoes. While it flexes under pressure, the Slimline’s low profile and slight rigidity make it an ideal match for medium-to lower arches in tighter-fitting shoes.
The heel end of the Slimline 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. The Slimline’s heel cup features a beveled edge that braces against the insides of closed-heel shoes to help protect the heel against excessive step-shock.What does a heel cup do and how can it help?
The Slimline’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 Slimline 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 Slimline arch support can help make sure that the transverse arch is properly supported.
The lower profile of the Slimline’s design allows it to fit comfortably in virtually any dress shoes with the aid of Good Feet Velcro attached to the bottom of the support.
The smooth curves of the Slimline’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 Slimline arch support can improve the comfort and stability of feet in even the “slimmest” of dress shoes.What does inner and outer longitudinal arch support do and how does it help?
The front end of the Slimline 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 Slimline 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 gradually rises from the heel to the ball of the foot. Since it is constructed of a semi-rigid formula, the Slimline’s Inner Longitudinal arch can help to preserve the foot’s instep from even the hardest surfaces.
The Slimline arch support is designed to make sure you are comfortable in any shoe. You can wear the Slimline arch support in open-heeled sandals, dress shoes or any other hard-to-fit style.
