Designed with a slimmer heel and an arch length to fit the female foot, the Superfeet BERRY tailors biomechanical support for women who want to put a little more spring in their running shoes. The Superfeet BERRY a high- to moderate-volume insole that features a high-density foam forefoot for greater shock absorption during high-impact activities.
Here’s a little test for you to try while you try on shoes that demonstrates how the Superfeet helps position the fat pad under your heel bone (the calcaneus) to naturally absorb impact. Remove a shoe and, while sitting, cross your leg so you can press firmly with your thumb on the bottom of your heel. As the fat pad is displaced, you should feel pressure against the heel bone. Now, squeeze the sides of your fat pad with the thumb and forefinger of one hand to hold the fat pad’s shape and apply pressure again. This time as you press on your heel, the fat pad between the heel bone and your thumb should be thicker and offer more natural protection against impact.
