Monthly Dispatch September 2019


Your feet carry your weight every day. Putting your feet under stress by wearing the wrong footwear or carrying a heavy load every day can lead to foot pain, which can also result in knee and lower back alignment issues in the long run. One in 10 people seeks treatment for Plantar Fasciitis at some point in their life according to the Pedorthic Association of Canada. People who have Plantar Fasciitis often experience foot pain, usually concentrated in the heels, that intensifies as the day goes on. It is usually caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch. This is more likely to happen:

• if you have excessive pronation when you walk
• if you have high arches or flat feet
• if you are overweight or carrying a heavy load all the time.
• if you walk, stand, or run for long periods, especially on hard surfaces or uneven terrains.

While having a great pair of footwear would help prevent and relieve any discomfort in the feet, an excellent pair of insoles will ensure your feet can have the best support and comfort. FORM Insoles are designed to alleviate and often eliminate Plantar Fasciitis. Its unique shape cradles your foot, minimizing friction to reduce blisters and the arch support prevents overpronation while you walk. Their reinforced heel support helps absorb shock, so you can move faster with confidence. Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis includes prescribed custom orthotics, which could cost around $200-$800 a pair, FORM insoles provide an extremely affordable alternative to prescriptions. There are two ways to customize your insoles. FORM insoles can go to work right out of the box. Within a few days of normal wear, your insoles will naturally form to your unique foot shape. For faster customization, you can warm up your insoles in an oven, watch this video to see a more detailed explanation.

Besides the more competitive price point, FORM insoles create a more rigid and durable structure to the footwear. They often will also increase the lifespan of your footwear. FORM insoles are re-usable and can be re-moulded to be used in multiple pairs of shoes. They can be heat-mould up to 5 times.

911 Supply offers two version of the FORM insoles: FORM insole Maximum and FORM insole Reinforced. Both versions are suitable for all work boots, hiking boots and winter boots. The reinforced model is designed for users over 200 lbs. This also includes users below 200lbs who plan on carrying weight in excess of that. (For examples, backpacks.) If you are interested in trying them out, please stop by our store, we can also heat-mould your new insoles for you so you can put them to work right away!
