Many of our customers with high arches prefer the Green arch support for their best hold on their arch when walking or running. Notice in the image below, this Green arch support has a hard plastic bottom. The hard plastic bottom takes some time getting used to, but it’s an excellent shock absorber.

Superfeet BlueCompared to the Superfeet Green, the Superfeet Blue is a thinner, high-performance foam insole that helps support and cushions the foot for long-lasting comfort. This Blue insole is thin enough to help improve the feel of most footwear. Most people with low to medium arches have experienced the best results with these. If you happen to have low arches, stick to the Blue rather than the Green. (Find your size in the Blue.) Although they have distinct features, both are high-density closed-cell foam insoles that can support and cushion your foot. Both Superfeet insoles have stabilizer heel cups. These stabilizer heel cups can help keep your heel in place and help reduce heel movement. This keeps the plantar fasciia from stretching as much which in turn, helps your foot heal!
Why are Lynco’s some of the best arch supports for Plantar Fasciitis?Lynco's are recognized as the #1 orthotic system on the market today and; are recommended by both medical professionals worldwide. As you look around and compare Lyncos, you’ll notice different arch supports for various foot types and gaits.
Lynco L2200 seriesLet’s start with Lynco’s most popular arch support, the L2200 series. The L2200 arch supports are exceptional for their slow recovery memory foam, which customizes to the shape of your foot (see below). When wearing these arch supports, you’ll notice the memory foam customizing to your foot, providing both balance and body alignment, thus reducing unnecessary stress on the plantar fascia. You can get this arch support with or without a metatarsal pad. (Find your size in the L2200.)
Lynco L2400 seriesWhile the memory foam is a great addition, it does make fitting more difficult. This arch support will only fit in shoes with thick removable insoles. Wider athletic shoes or shoes designed to accommodate orthotics will work best with this model. If memory foam is not what you are entirely looking for and would like a more customized arch support, Lynco also offers the L2400 series. The L2400 series orthotics are customizable and designed with removable gel plugs. Since our right and left foot are not mirror images, these L2400 arch supports allow you to modify for differences in your feet. Once you remove any necessary gel plugs for your custom fit, you’ll notice this L2400 arch support will help relieve pressure points and create a pressure free environment. This model is a little thinner than the memory foam L2200 model so it will be easier to fit into shoes with regular removable insoles. With all of the above models, none of these will work in shoes without removable insoles. Adding these full-length insoles on top of an existing insole will more than likely make the shoes too tight and fit incorrectly.
