Breaking In Your Insoles/Orthotics

Your Insoles/Orthotics may initially feel slightly strange due to the realignment of the foot, and redistribution of pressure and will therefore require a gentle breaking in period. You should initially only wear your insoles for 1 hour and gradually build up the wear time over 2 – 3 weeks. After this they should be able to be worn all day. Sometimes with a lot of correction it can take longer. You can wear them until your feet start to feel tired or uncomfortable then remove them and you can increase your time from there.
