There’s no doubt that football is a physically taxing sport. But it’s more than just the big hits that keep players on the sidelines. The pressure on joints and muscles is extreme, and it can be just as hard on younger players as mature athletes. Luckily, relief for lower body issues including heel and knee pain can be found in football insoles.
Tailored to fit precisely in cleated football shoes, NxtMile kids’ football insoles provide the stability and cushioning required by the unique demands of football. The 3:1 elevated heel reduces the stresses that contribute to heel pain, which makes these Sever’s Disease insoles incredibly popular. They are also designed to minimize knee pain common among young players, often associated with Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease. The medial and lateral arch stabilizer guides proper foot movement for young feet during core football movements while the forefoot cleat pressure cushioning helps reduce foot fatigue and stress. Ultra-light, multi-density molded EVA optimizes athlete comfort from heel to toe during every practice and game.

Our 8 year old daughter had been complaining about her heels hurting after practices and games. We tried a soft insole as well as a gel heel cup we bought at a sporting goods store. The insoles and heel cups would move around when she tried to put her shoes on making it hard for her to wear and they didn't seem to help the pain. We put in a pair of NxtMile insoles in her soccer cleats and her heels stopped hurting after playing just one game.Soccer Parent tired of soft insoles
