How to Choose the Right Currex Insole

Buyer's Guide | Fleet Feet

Updated on

Insoles have a variety of uses and can help you tremendously with comfort, efficiency and support, but the first question you might ask yourself is "how do I know if I need insoles?" Our video below helps to show you that anyone can benefit from a Currex insole.

Currex insoles are designed by German sports scientists. The unique dynamic insoles are made to keep full contact between your feet and your shoes to increase your comfort and help your performance.

There are three different profiles for each style of Currex insole based on your arch height: high, medium and low. If you don’t know what type of arch you have, go to your local Fleet Feet to get a free 3D fit id® foot scan, the outfitter will show your arch profile as part of the outfitting process.

Here is how Currex insoles can differ based on your arch profile:

  • High - the insole is more flexible because your arch is more rigid
  • Medium - the insole is a bit more rigid to match your arch
  • Low - this is the stiffest insole to support a more flexible arch

Each Currex insole has a few features to help you perform your best. A decoupled heel and cushion allow for protection and comfort when you land, while the dynamic arch support helps guide the foot and returns stored energy back into the foot, reducing stress and fatigue on your feet. There is also a propulsive forefoot material that helps you toe off and makes you more efficient during your runs.

Currex insoles can be put into any shoe that has a removable insert. Plus, they are extremely lightweight and come with a bamboo layer that helps with moisture management and breathability.

Currex insoles increase comfort, reduce pressure and support a dynamic run to help your performance. As opposed to other insoles, the style you choose is based on your activity in the shoes. Within each style, you can choose between high, medium or low profiles based on your arch type. Here are our top choices:

Still unsure? The best way to make sure you are using the correct insole is to go to your local Fleet Feet to get fit for Currex insoles using our 3D foot-scanning technology.
