Forefoot wedge - Universal in-shoe

Forefoot wedge - Universal in-shoe

from 5.00

The in-shoe forefoot wedge is designed to be used inside the shoe, between the insole and shoe itself. It provides 1.5 degrees of varus tilt directly to the forefoot, improving proprioception and creating a more controlled environment inside the shoe.

Unlike other designs on the market, the FORM in-shoe wedge is toe-less. The reasons for this are:

- A toe-less design does not occupy space in the toe box, eliminating the “cramped” feeling which other designs suffer from.

- With the rider’s toes unelevated, the wedge has extra presence under the ball of the foot, leading to superior proprioception.

- With no requirement to position the wedge up against the tip of the shoe, it can be positioned far more accurately directly below the ball of the foot.

The wedge comes in one size and is trimmable to accommodate different shoe widths.

Fitting instructions:

  1. Remove insole from the shoe

  2. Place the wedge up against the underside of the insole with the thin side facing outwards (see Fig1)

  3. Pick a suitable cut line to trim to size, allowing approx 2mm between the edge of the wedge and the edge of the insole (see Fig 2)

  4. Once trimmed install the wedge using one of the following 3 methods:

    A) Stuck to the insole – use tape to stick the wedge to the underside of the insole.

    *This method is recommended if there is requirement for the wedge to be moved between pairs of shoes.

    B) Stuck to the base of the shoe – stick double sided tape the wedge then to the base of on the shoe.

    *This method can work if the tape will not stick to the insole. Once in the shoe, the pressure of the insole and foot will keep it in place.

    C) Placed “loose” at the bottom of the shoe - this method will work provided the wedge is not bumped out of alignment when the insole gets placed on top.

    *Use this method if no tape is available.

    Placement:

    - The location of the ball of the foot can be marked on the insole when the insole has been removed from the shoe. Do this by either;

    a) placing the rider’s foot on the insole and marking it with a pen, or

    b) by using the deep indentation created by the ball of the foot as a guide (The ball is the fleshy pad directly behind the 1st Metatarsal (big toe).

    - Align the centrally placed dots on the wedge with the ball of the foot marker.

    Usage techniques:

    - For less presence in the shoe or a reduced height under the insole, cut the wedges to a partial width, up to 2/3 of the insole’s width (Fig.3)

    - When stacking two wedges together, stack two of the same width for full effect (Fig.4/1) or cut one narrower and place the narrower one at the bottom (Fig.4/2)
