Skinny Arch Supports
The Skinny is a versatile companion in a wide variety of dress, athletic, and leisure shoes. The Skinny is made of a lightweight compound designed to never flatten crack or break, and it carries our exclusive Good Feet Lifetime Warranty. We designed the Skinny to allow the feet to relax after a long day, without allowing the feet to go flat, or fall out of alignment. Its flexibly firm compound gives gently under pressure, yet allows the foot freedom to move in even the most form-fitting dress shoes.
The Skinny’s flexibility and sleek silhouette make it a discrete companion in even the most unique fashion shoes, including high heels. Its gentle support construction requires practically no break-in period; most customers can wear the Skinny all day, every day, right away! With the Skinny in your purse or backpack, you’re never without an arch support, no matter your shoes or your activity.
What’s in a Skinny?
The heel end of the Skinny features a very slight heel cup, designed to help support the active heel without preventing the foot from the natural freedom it enjoys in open-heeled shoes. Sculpted with a smoothly rounded edge, the Skinny’s heel cup helps to protect the heel against excessive step-shock.
What Does It Do, And How Can It Help?
The Skinny’s heel cup helps to support the Transverse arch, which is located in front of the heel. This arch includes a sensitive spot where the very important Plantar Fascia ligament connects to the heel bone. The Skinny helps to maintain the position the heel acquired while wearing the Exerciser and Maintainer supports in a complete arch support system. Working with the Exerciser and Maintainer supports, the Skinny can help make sure that the Transverse arch is supported in even the tightest-fitting dress shoes.
The lower profile of the Skinny’s design allows it to fit comfortably in open-heeled dress shoes, with the aid of some Good Feet Velcro attached to the bottom of the support.
Inner And Outer Longitudinal Arch Support
The smooth curves of the Skinny’s inner and outer longitudinal arch support flex beneath the foot with each step, providing gentle support for the arches in practically any shoe. The Skinny can improve the fit and feel of feet in even the “skinniest” of dress shoes.
What Does It Do, And How Does It Help?
The front end of the Skinny tapers off gracefully, allowing the bones that form the top of the foot to rest from being realigned by the Exerciser and Maintainer supports. Having no metatarsal rise, the Skinny supports three out of four arches in each foot. The most prominent arch in the Skinny is the Inner Longitudinal, (instep) which slopes up gracefully to meet the arch height of medium- to lower arches.
Rather than aiming to control the motion of the foot during gait, the Skinny’s job is to make sure you are comfortable in any shoe, especially the shoe styles in which your other arch supports may not fit as comfortably. Wear the Skinny in open-heeled sandals, your highest high heels, your water shoes, and even your cycling cleats. For those who need an ultra-versatile support to follow them into practically any shoe, the Skinny is the perfect match!
