KNEED2Run Benefits


INJURY RELIEF
It is a good training technique to both vary your runs and vary your footwear (including your insoles). In many cases, you will be able to run pain free without KNEED2Run after a period of time. If your injury persists make sure you seek professional medical advice. Your local independent footwear dealer can be a great resource for medical professionals in your community.

If you have that heel pain when you first step out of bed; that could be plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is excessive strain on the ligament that supports your medial longitu­dinal arch (typically just called “the arch” of the foot). The ligament attaches between your heel bone and your toes and often pain is ex­pressed in those areas instead of under the arch. This is one of the most common foot pains in athletes, particularly runners. KNEED2Run helps by providing full length support underneath your arch that fits perfectly inside your running shoe. You get the feeling of the shoe you love with the support that you need.
If you have pain on the inside of the ankle or through the arch this could be tibialis posterior tendinitis. The pain tends to worsen with repeti­tive stress. This muscle controls foot pronation, supports the arch, and generates forward propulsion along with the peroneals and calf muscles – all very important for running. KNEED2Run helps by sup­porting the arch and relieving some stress on the tibialis posterior tendon.
If you have pain and swelling on the balls (metatarsal heads) of the foot this could be metatarsalgia. The pain is the most severe during the propulsion phase of the run cycle. KNEED2Run helps balance the weight under the foot by providing heel to ball of foot arch support. In addition, the PORON® Performance Cushioning – the best performance cushioning for impact absorption – assists any fat pad atrophy. Properly fitted footwear also helps this condition, and KNEED2Run was designed to fit your foot perfectly inside running shoes.
If you have tingling, burning, cramp­ing or shooting pains in the ball of the foot, most commonly your third and fourth toes, you may have Mor­ton’s Neuroma. KNEED2Run helps by providing PORON® Performance Cushioning – the best performance cushioning for impact absorption. KNEED2Run also helps by supporting the foot and relieving the pressure on the toes.

product details


The heel cradle in KNEED2Run is designed to optimally connect with your heel and fit inside the heel counter of running shoes. The heel doesn’t push out the heel counter of the running shoe, allowing the shoe to hold your heel the way it was meant to with­out slippage. There is no sacrifice between support and slippage. While inside your shoe, the shape of KNEED2Run utilizes your natural heel pad, by gently compressing it, and optimizing that cushioning under your heel. In addition, the rounded bowl matches the shape of your heel while the flat surface underneath the insole matches the flat surface inside your shoe. We are taking your shoe and giving it a three-dimen­sional shape to match your unique foot inside the shoe.



Biomechanically shaped to ensure support from the heel all the way to the ball of the foot.
The medial longitudinal arch (typically just called “the arch” of the foot, even though you technically have three) is shaped to ensure you have support from your heel to the ball of your foot (at the base of the big toe). The arch shape is based on the most common arch length and height for your shoe size. To fit your arch length you may have to choose a Kneed insole that is one size smaller or larger than your shoe size to ensure a proper fit. Your arch should have a gentle contact point all along the inside shape of the insole. People with lower arches (pes planus or flat feet) will typically find the additional sup­port of KNEED2Run exactly what they were looking for. However, you can apply weight to the heated product to lower the arch support to a comfortable level.



This is the best performance cushioning for impact absorption. You want to touch the ground but you don’t want your bones to feel it.
PORON® is the material that professional athletes demand when they are having their shoes custom made. It provides the highest shock absorbing properties as well as exceptional resiliency. The resiliency of PORON® allows it to absorb the impact immediately and return to its original shape allowing you to pound it again and again. The materi­al is also made from open cell urethanes making it breathable. Comparing to the top running shoe brands we selected 2.5mm of PORON® to replace the ideal thickness of the factory sockliners that come with your running shoes. Absorb, breath, repeat!



Following the direction of your foot, KNEED2Run flexes with your foot and also main­tains its shape where you need the support.
Often support in orthotics and insoles is achieved by using hard materials that don’t allow the rest of your foot to bend where you need it to. At worst the insoles can be overly restrictive and at best they bend just shy of where you would ideally want. By using a variable density ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) material, KNEED2Run supports your foot and then the density transitions with your natural flex areas.
