PULSE® - Performance Orthotics Made by Athletes for Athletes
Is Your PULSE Racing?
If you're a runner or an athlete who depends on performance shoes and proper footing, then these orthotics are what you need. Allow me to introduce this lineup of insoles, and then we'll take a closer more detailed look at each of them individually.
PowerStep's PULSE® Performance Insoles were designed by athletes for athletes, specifically for use in advanced running shoes during rigorous athletic activity. The PowerStep PULSE® Insoles feature a unique design, with a built-in arch support and heel cradle, stabilizes the foot, and improves alignment. This motion control, along with targeted dual-layer cushioning, helps absorb shock at impact to reduce stress on the feet, ankles, and other joints.
PULSE® Insoles provide the perfect blend of stability and cushioning during athletic activity to simultaneously increase comfort, help reduce fatigue and improve the efficiency of your stride. These performance orthotics are also suitable for relieving pain associated with many common conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Morton's Neuroma, heel or arch pain and discomfort, mild pronation, fallen arches, shin splints, muscle cramps, and more common foot conditions.
Every Insole in the PowerStep PULSE® lineup features an anti-microbial top fabric that helps control heat and perspiration. The cushioning layer is made up of energy activating PORON®. Below that is a semi-rigid arch support and heel cradle for improved motion control. Finally, the lower layer is an additional EVA foam cushioning cover for maximum comfort.

The Sport Insole series by PowerStep is designed for running shoes that have a smaller toe box that does not have enough room for the Standard PULSE® dual-layer cushioning insole.

PULSE® port enhances the structure and stability of the foot to help relieve pain and prevent injuries.

PULSE® Air - Maximum Cushioning, Full Support, with a Breathable Top Cover

PULSE® Endurance® - Ultra-Thin Insoles

PULSE® Endurance Insoles feature a flexible arch shell, creating a full length total-contact support insole that fits perfectly into thinner profile shoes.
