How squash shoe insoles can help you

Insoles can be effective for those of you who experience pain in your feet, knees, hips or back when you play squash or exercise in general. In this guide, we help you on your way with when you should invest in insoles, as well as what to consider when buying them.

What can insoles help you with?


The definition of overpronation is the movement that occurs when the foot hits the ground. It is a form of rolling movement inward, which happens when you take a step. If you roll the foot too far inwards, it can lead to instability and pain in the foot. It can also go all the way up and irritate the knees and spine. This happens, among other things, through unilateral stress on hard and flat surfaces, which is largely the case in squash. It can also be what leads to heel spurs and other ailments such as osteoarthritis. Therefore, overpronation must be assessed seriously. If you start to experience less pain, we can recommend our Stable Trac insoles from Adapt Footlab. They will help you to have a better movement which reduces the risk of overpronation.

Heel Spur

This type of injury occurs in the membrane of the foot and is created by overuse. It is an inflammation of the membrane of the foot, and it causes great pain under the heel, which is already under heavy strain when you play squash. It can therefore also cause irritation in everyday activities, as a painful heel can of course also be felt during normal walking. Many squash players experience heel spurs and for this injury we would particularly recommend our Stabilizer insoles from Adapt Footlab. It quickly adapts to the shape of the feet and stabilizes them, as the name also suggests.


The movement is the opposite of overpronation and is also known as underpronation. The foot therefore moves outwards when you take a step. Some squash players also suffer from this, which, like overpronation, can cause great pain and discomfort. Once again, we recommend the Stable Trac insoles as they help reduce the risk of supination.


Things to remember when buying new insoles

The size

The size of the soles corresponds in most cases to a group of sizes and is divided according to this. This is also how Squashlife's products are often divided, so that it is easy for you to choose the right size.

From here they can also simply be cut to fit your squash shoes perfectly.

The arch of the foot

To get the most accurate measurements and the best possible support, you can check for yourself which way your foot curves. It can be done quite simply from home if you follow this video. In this way, you can check whether you have a neutral arch, whether you overpronate or supinate.

What is your purpose with the insole?

Remember to consider the purpose of your insoles. For example, would you like to increase your performance? Performance soles are designed to allow you to remain active for longer periods of time without additional pain. In addition, they also contribute with shock absorption.

Looking for relief? Comfortable soles provide good support and it makes your knees and back recover.

Or are you trying to treat outright pain? Then you need a more advanced product that can really improve the feeling and pain in the knees, back and especially the heel They also help with shock absorption and they can add extra life to your shoes .

Please note that the insoles should replace the existing sole in the shoes. If you grow squash at a high level or do a lot of other forms of exercise, goodrecovery alongside the insoles is also recommended.
