Abstract

A full length insole for use with footwear, is formed by a first layer including a forefoot portion extending at least to metatarsals of a foot, a heel portion, a mid portion connecting together the forefoot portion and the heel portion, the mid portion including a medial arch portion, an upper surface extending along the forefoot, mid and heel portions on which a person stands; and a lower surface extending along the forefoot, mid and heel portions, the lower surface including a shallow recess, the first layer being made of a material of a first hardness; a force line insert secured in the recess and having a shape that follows a greatest area of force of the foot on the upper surface during a normal stride, the force line insert being made of a material of a second hardness which is less than the first hardness; a forefoot pillow formed as a raised area at the upper surface at the forefoot portion to provide additional cushioning thereat and shaped to conform to a pressure area of the foot so as to include a front edge that extends forwardly to a greater extent at a medial side of the insole; and a heel pillow formed as a raised area at the upper surface at the heel portion to provide additional cushioning thereat and shaped to enhance progression of a gait to guide the foot toward the medial arch portion.
