What Causes Pain?
Flexibility : FLEXIBLE The Hug orthotic is so flexible it’s ready to wear right away without a long break-in period. Few customers find they need to break it in at all; however, if you have unique health concerns, make sure to work out a break-in plan with your Certified Good Feet Arch Support Fitter. read More
The Hug orthotic is great for closed-heel shoes or slippers. Though its shape supports all four arches in each foot, the Hug orthotic is designed to provide comfort instead of powerful realignment. In addition, each Hug arch support carries an exclusive Good Feet Warranty against flattening, breaking or cracking.
Good Feet designed the super-supple Hug orthotic to flex generously under pressure, so it is not designed for overall body alignment but for instant comfort. When a less aggressive arch support solution is what you’re after, few things make you feel better than a Hug!
(HOVER OVER THE LINKS ABOVE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FEATURES OF THE HUG ARCH SUPPORT)
The sole of the Hug arch support features a sturdy pattern of connected squares called a “Stability Structure.” These thick squares are positioned under the forefoot of the support, to provide a little extra stability during gait.
The Hug’s square Stability Structure is very flexible and gives generously under pressure. This stabilizing pattern helps the Hug keep its shape which means consistent support for your feet.Top
The front end of the Hug arch support features a prominent “bump” that resembles a miniature pitcher’s mound. This is called the metatarsal rise and it is particularly effective at taking pressure off the ball of the foot, the toes and the heel.
By properly supporting the metatarsal arch, the metatarsal rise lifts up the bones in the ball of the foot, effectively preventing them from hitting the ground too hard every time the foot pushes off for a step. The Hug’s flexible material is not designed to redistribute pressure through the foot, so the metatarsal rise in the Hug will not redistribute pressure from the front of the foot as aggressively as our more rigid Exerciser arch supports.Top
The heel cup is a cup-like indentation at the heel end of the Hug arch support. It is designed to protect the fatty pad of the heel and to help absorb the “step shock” and joint impact that courses through the body each time the heel strikes the ground.
Every step each foot takes begins when the heel makes contact with the ground, in what is called “heel strike.” The Hug’s heel cup is designed to help cushion and properly align the heel, thereby reducing the stress of each step.Top
The Hug also features support for the inner and outer arches of the feet. These are designed to stabilize the foot during gait, to help prevent it rolling inward or outward with each step.
By supporting all four arches of the foot, the Hug arch support helps to properly distribute pressure through the entire foot, thereby preventing any one part of the foot from taking on too much pressure. This can help alleviate pain in areas of the foot that are strained. The Hug’s inner and outer longitudinal arch support features stabilize the foot during gait, helping to prevent pronation and supination (rolling inward or outward). By stabilizing the foot, the Hug helps to reduce excess stress in the ankles, knees and hips..Top
