Is there a significant difference in the arch support of the Edensoles insole compared to the competitor insoles?
The Edensoles has lower arch support pressure than the competitor orthotics. It also has a more consistent pressure during the foot strike while the competitor products increase the arch pressure during the push off phase of walking. (this is the main advantage of our Dynamic Customisation technology)
This critical point is shown in the above graphs The rigid insole has similar arch support to the Edensoles at initial contact, but increases during push off. The Edensoles has much more even arch support even while pushing off.
Do testers feel a difference in the support, comfort, or cushioning of these insoles?
We had 5 male testers (average weight and foot shape for each gender) try out Edensoles at Heeluxe, LLC, in Santa Barbara, CA. The testers prefer the initial comfort, overall comfort, arch support, and cushioning of the Edensoles insole.
Do they have a preference for how one's insoles matches the shape of their foot?
The 5 male testers prefer how the Edensoles insole matches the shape of their foot. There is a significant difference in how much they prefer the shape of Edensoles over a rigid support insoles.
