Profeet Custom Insoles for weightlifters
Unlike running, raquet sports or skiing, weightlifting is not a high impact or especially dynamic sport, nevertheless, significant stresses and strain are placed on the feet, ankles and legs.
Stability & balance
For optimum performance, the onus is on stability and keeping the body weight balanced. When the ankles have a tendency to roll in (pronation) or out (supination) it can lead to uneven distribution of this weight, leaving you off-balance and uncentred and at risk of injury, and that’s where custom insoles come in.
Moulded to your precise foot shape, Profeet Custom Insoles provide the feet and lower body with solid, stable support in the right places.
The effectiveness of Profeet Custom Insoles for weightlifting is borne out by the successful performance of the Team at the European Championships!
