1. Pedag Viva Leather arch support Insoles
A lot of thought and technology has gone into the creation & production of the Viva Insole. The active carbon filter prevents foot odour, coupled with the finest leather for dry and fresh feet all day long. Extreme load distribution or bad posture can lead to aching feet however the Viva insole is designed not only to alleviate the pain but help to prevent any future problems such as plantar fasciitis.
The continuous comfort is achieved from 3 features of the insole. This includes the insole being anatomically shaped with an arched footbed, a cushioned heel for shock absorption and a metatarsal pad that relieves the forefoot. The pad is also designed to prevent the creation of splayfoot and alleviate any pain if you already suffer from this. All these features have been designed to ensure your feet remain healthy and pain free over time.
2. Pedag Viva Mini Insoles
The Viva Mini insole has been designed for those who love to wear the fashionable and tight fitting peep toes shoes, without having to compromise a comfortable foot support. Not every shoe has the space to support a full size foot support so Pedag have designed a half insole called the Viva Mini.
This supports the foot against the shockwaves created with every step you take with the heel pad. It also has the longitudinal arch to keep your foot in place and the metatarsal pad preventing splayfoot.
3. Pedag Viva Sport Insoles
Whether you’re playing walking to work, hiking or doing something even more adventurous, the Viva Sport is a dependable year-round foot support. The anatomically shaped Viva Sport is specifically designed to meet requirements of your foot, with a cushioned heel support and metatarsal dome to help distribute the pressure over this critical mid-foot area.
The arch support is designed to support your longitudinal arch up and the forefoot is supported by the metatarsal pad. What differs the sport insole is on the surface, which has a fibre topped neoprene foot bed to transfer moisture away from the foot quickly as possible, which helps to provide all day comfort as well as fighting the cold in winter.
carbon filtering to Fight Against Odours
All the insoles in the Pedag range feature a carbon filter layer that breaks up the warm air circling around our foot. The socks and shoes you wear will protect your feet however they also can provoke foot odour by literally wrapping your feet up and preventing air circulating in.
The carbon filter technologies create a space for the air to breath as well as soaking up moisture up to 50% of its own weight, thus reducing foot odour. They act as a sweat magnet all day long, preventing the odour and smell to escape. It is important to remove the insoles and air after wearing so they can dry and regenerate the whole process.
