Abstract

A foot balance device includes at least one adjustment element (10) arranged at a position between a front sole and a rear heel. The adjustment element (10) forms a support point having a bottom surface that is provided with a coupling section (11). The coupling section (11) functions to couple to a corresponding position in a shoe (30) or on a shoe pad (20). As such, the distribution of force between the heel and the sole is changed to realize proper distribution of body weight on the foot and make force uniformly acting along a circumference of the adjustment element (10) to thereby protect the foot from being hurt and improve the sense of comfortableness.
