Proven to reduce foot and heel pain for over 91% of people

WHAT IS IT? The IT band – the Iliotibial band – is a thick fibrous band (not a muscle) that starts at your hipbone and runs down the outside of your leg where it attaches just below the knee. It is also attaches to the gluteal muscles and the tensor fascia latae, which is the muscle that moves your leg forward. One of the IT band’s jobs is to provide stability during walking or running and controlling knee movement.

WHAT CAUSES IT BAND SYNDROME? IT Band Syndrome is when this ligament band becomes inflamed or tight. The band narrows as it reaches the knee and it can become inflamed if rubbing occurs between the bone and the band. Those who have this injury will normally experience pain around the knee joint and sometimes on the outside of the thigh. Overuse is the main cause and any movement that causes the leg to repeatedly turn inward is going to put stress on the IT band such as running on a decline, or a weak or out of position pelvis. If the ligament is tight, it’s not going to be doing its job properly which is going to create pain around your knees.

HOW CAN ENERTOR INSOLES HELP?

  1. 44% shock absorption – all Enertor insoles offer more shock absorption than any other insole– reducing stress on the knee joint and IT Band.
  2. Improved lower limb alignment – Enertor Performance insole’s contoured cushioning and control chassis help to reduce tibia and femur rotation so the IT Band does not become stretched and reduces stress on the knee joint.

    Good Support
    Not used insoles before but have been very impressed with these. Size 10s fit snuggly in my trainers (once I’d taken the old ones out) and don’t move when on the run. Very comfortable and help to cushion the impact when road running. Very pleased.

    Good impact support
    The insoles offer very good impact support around the heel while out pounding the streets. Worth having. The only thing I would suggest is you try them in new shoes before buying. I find they fit in my current shoes but push my toes forward and I could really do with half a size bigger

    A great insole
    Used these insoles in my walking boots training for the 3 peak challenge and feet feel comforted at every step with reduced impact and tiredness compared to the insoles that came with the boots. They offer increased stability and make the boots feel like they were made for me. I’ve also started wearing them daily in my work shoes and the difference is enormous. I will now buy a second pair. I highly recommend these insoles for sports activity or general use.

    Excellent impact protection
    As a reviewer has mentioned below – these won’t fit in lower profile shoes or spikes, however in day to day running shoes, they’re great. I’ve started using them whilst coming back from tendonitis and while they make no medical claims, they’re definitely helping with impact absorbency and comfort. Would be 5 stars if I could fit them in every pair I own!

    No more pain!
    These insoles have kept me injury free and have allowed me to be a faster runner. A year ago I had knee pain which kept me out of running for 6 weeks, my comeback was rough but since using these insoles I have had no issues. My feet never hurt and pain doesn’t radiate up to my knee. Couldn’t be happier with these insoles.
