If your feet hurt while you're running, walking, or just generally having a hard time keeping your toes in place, it may be time to get a new pair of insoles.
Forbes reports 3D-printed insoles are on the rise and are "redefining the world of foot comfort."
The technology can be used to create insoles that not only address specific foot conditions but also promote "better foot health by addressing and preventing potential issues," according to Footwear News.
3D-printed insoles use pressure sensors and digital foot scans to address every curve and contour of a person's foot.
"This ensures that the design addresses every curve and contour of the foot," Footwear News states.
"Additionally, the introduction of 3D printing has further elevated production, allowing for precise customization.
Instead of relying on one-size-fits-all insoles, manufacturers can now craft insoles to match the unique structure of an individual's foot," according to Footwear News.
The company behind one of the most popular 3D-printed insoles, Silhouette Active Fit, says the technology can also be used to address specific foot conditions, such as Achilles tendonitis or shin splints.
The company's insoles are available in men's and women's sizes, according to Forbes.
