Protalus ® was created as a solution to help you feel and perform better within your everyday life. Our team imagines, designs, and innovates with you in mind. We’ve established trust with others like you who experience foot, knee, hip, and back issues by focusing on the cause of the problem rather than the symptoms.
This is going to feel different from other things you’ve tried. This isn’t a Band-Aid, but real relief. Whatever your journey, we’re here to help get you back on your feet.
Protalus ® insoles improve comfort, performance, and mobility through alignment. Pain or discomfort often occurs when structures of the body are subjected to forces they aren’t designed to withstand. When your body is properly aligned, the force of each step is more evenly distributed throughout the kinetic chain, reducing pressure, inflammation, and strain on your body.
Yes, our M-series is designed with greater curvature and a deep heel cup to conform to high arches and guide the ankle joint into proper position.
Yes, Protalus ® insoles have been shown to benefit flat feet (overpronation), significantly more than other insole companies. 80% of the population suffers from some level of overpronation, and Protalus ® insoles correct this by aligning the ankle joint to a more neutral position. This helps maintain the integrity of your arches and alleviate pain.
When choosing a model, make sure to consider not only the needs of your feet, but the limitations of your footwear. The larger, more supportive models are fantastic for people who need maximum relief, but they may not fit in a shallow shoe (such as Vans, or Toms).
The numbers refer to the length of the insoles. The M-100 and T-100 are full length insoles that extend to the end of your foot. The M-75 and T-75 are ¾ length insoles which stop at the ball of the foot but are otherwise identical to their full-length models.
Insole length is largely determined by the shoe you will be using your insole with. If the shoe has a removable insole, we recommend that you remove it, and replace it with a full-length model (such as the M-100 or T-100). If your insoles are not removeable, the ¾ length models can be placed directly on top of the existing insole.
Protalus ® insoles work with a wide variety of footwear ranging from work boots to dress shoes. Our Insole Finder Tool can help you find which model is right for your shoes.
We recommend ordering an insole a half size larger and trimming the insole accordingly (see question below for trimming instructions).
Yes, Protalus ® insoles are transferable between same-sized shoes. We understand how hard it can be to walk through life with pain. If you wear Protalus ® insoles every day, consider investing in multiple pairs to save time and ensure you never forget to wear your insoles.
New pairs of Protalus ® insoles will occasionally squeak while walking. This squeaking sound often goes away without treatment after the break-in period, however it can also be eliminated by applying a small amount of paraffin wax or baby powder to the bottom of the insole.
Our insoles are designed true to size, and for most customers, trimming will not be necessary. In some cases, the toe of the insole may bunch up against the edge of the shoe and trimming the insole may help. We recommend tracing an outline of the stock insoles on the underside of the Protalus ® insole and cutting accordingly. Be sure to line up the heel and big toe of both insoles and err on the larger side, as you can always cut away more. When they are cut correctly, they will lay completely flat in your shoes without folding or lifting.
As your body enters a new state of alignment, there is an important adjustment period that should not be rushed. We recommend wearing your Protalus ® insoles 1-2 hours the first day, 2-3 hours the second day, and 3-4 hours the third day. Continue to increase wear by 1-2 hours until a full day is reached. Prior to running in Protalus ® insoles, make sure to have worn them for 4-5 days, full time. If you experience pain or discomfort wearing Protalus ® insoles, please return to your original stock insoles and start a conversation with us about your specific situation via phone or email.

During this time your body is undergoing gentle correction. It is not unusual to experience mild muscle soreness and/or achiness.
Alignment is in full function. You will experience less pain and can spend more time on your feet with less discomfort.
Your biomechanics are working correctly. Your back, hips, knees, and ankles work in alignment to create a better platform.
The difference lies in our patented TRI-Planar technology. Other insole companies place a stump under the arch and call it support. Our insoles focus on the cause of the problem rather than the symptoms, designed to help your body maintain a neutral ankle joint position, while still allowing full ranges of healthy movement. Proper joint alignment improves movement efficiency, reduces fatigue, and prevents injury to help you do what you love.
As an incentive to outfit all your shoes with the life-changing technology in our Protalus ® insoles, we are offering these amazing quantity discounts when you buy multiple pairs!
