"The most effective and comfortable solution to saying goodbye to foot pain."
The sole is one of the key elements of bootfitting! What is bootfitting? It's a skill that involves creating a better symbiosis between the foot and the sports shoe. Few realise this because they're not visible, but insoles play an absolutely crucial role in this symbiosis. They are the main interface between you and your equipment and therefore the most effective and comfortable solution for getting rid of foot pain. That means you need to choose them carefully.
What are the benefits of insoles for ski boots?
<1/ First of all, stability: ski boot insoles allow the foot to fit perfectly inside the boot, particularly in the heel, similar to sitting comfortably in the bucket seat of a car.
2/ Next, support: by supporting the arch of the foot, the insole limits sagging of the foot linked to fatigue during your day's skiing.
3/ Finally, a better distribution of pressure points: by distributing the support, the insole reduces localised pain points.
All the ski insoles shown below offer the benefits of support, stability and distribution of pressure. This means you can say goodbye to muscle tension, sore spots, chafing, blisters or frozen toes in your ski boots.
Now we're going to take a closer look at each range to find the one that's right for you...

All feet are unique, but we can nevertheless classify them into three categories, based on the shape of the arch of the foot. The patented 3Feet technology thus aims to adapt the construction of the insole to the three types of arch, to provide an even more personalised comfort solution.
Our 3Feet ski insoles therefore come in three arch heights:
- The 'LOW' insoles for feet with low arches, known as "flat feet< /strong>"
- The 'MID' insoles for feet with a medium arch, known as "standard feet"
- The 'HIGH' insoles for feet with a high arch, sometimes known as "hollow feet"
Its little extra? : An insole construction perfectly adapted to the height of your foot arch as well as a small gel pad strategically located in the heel, ideal for absorbing shocks.
Its little extra #2? : These ski insoles are available in three versions (LOW - MID - HIGH) and in a range of colours.
Who are they for? : For demanding skiers who want to take their approach to comfort a step further without tipping over into full customisation.
