STRYDA SOLES Natural Movement Cork Insoles
The only insole that gives you support in all 3 arches of your feet. Great for flat feet, high arch feet and pain alleviation.
STRYDA SOLES are made from sustainably harvested cork to naturally cushion, stimulate and cradle your feet to help you move at your best. Designed to support the three main arches of the foot, STRYDA SOLES absorbs and evenly disperses impact forces to relieve pain and enhance natural movement. Created with your body and our planet in mind, they are 100% sustainable and ethically produced.
Harsh man made surfaces in the modern world are continuously flat and unforgiving to the organic nature of the human body and it's structures. Think about the impact of your entire body weight moving with force as you strike concrete floors 7000-15000 times a day, everyday! Natural cork has all the good stuff to cushion the blow. STRYDA SOLES form to your feet as you wear them maximising contact to help evenly disperse impact forces and improve sensory feedback.
Effectively alleviate pain in the following areas:
- The forefoot area and into the toes (best combined with STRYDA Toe Aligners)
- Plantar Fasciitis & Heel Pain
- Arch pain - Medial and Lateral Arches
- Achilles insertional pain
- Peroneal muscles
- Ankle pain
STRYDA SOLES unique trigger point system provides the optimal level of contact, guidance and support between your foot and the ground without overpowering or disrupting your foot's natural mechanics. Each trigger point stimulates your feet at the ideal time and position of your gait cycle to optimise your body's biomechanics. Think of the trigger point system as cues for your feet as you move.
Metatarsal Dome: redistributes plantar pressure away from the metatarsal heads to reduce forefoot pain
Lateral Arch Trigger Point: improves foot function by stabilizing weak or rotating ankles, limiting excessive pronation or supination
Flow Grooves: Medial, lateral, forefoot and flow grooves guide alignment and timely firing of the ideal muscle groups in the feet and legs
Sustainable cork has many natural properties that are perfect for everyday wear.

Cork ensures you are walking with natural guidance, support and control. No tree is harmed in the production of our insoles as only the bark of the tree is used until it grows back in time.
How to wear
- Remove any existing insoles from your shoes
- Ensure the insole is placed firmly inside your shoe, with the heel cup positioned to the back of your shoe with no gap
- Hold the back of the insole while placing your foot inside of the shoe to ensure the insole does not slip forward
You should start by wearing them for 1 hour the first day, 2 hours the second day and 3 hours on the third day. Everyone is different so adjust this to suit how you feel as it may take you longer to acclimatise. You can then proceed towards full time daily use. If you need to break them in more slowly, give yourself breaks and resume wearing them at shorter intervals, we suggest 30 minute intervals.
STRYDA SOLES are insoles like no other, they are designed to stimulate your body to move at it's best from the feet up. You will feel the difference immediately and while your feet may feel strange when you first use them, this is normal and a good sign you are responding to them correctly.
STRYDA SOLES can be used with well fitted traditional shoes as well as barefoot or minimalist shoes. If the shoe design has less volume or is shallower in depth, you may need to go up half a size.
Please consult a professional if you have specific concerns or symptoms. The insoles can be modified as per your individual requirements with the easiest option being with a cobbler or pedorthist.
Cleaning & Care
Do not forcefully flex or bend the insoles as they are made of cork which may cause the insole to snap. Expect natural wear and tear such as chipping of the cork, this should not affect the function of your insoles. STRYDA SOLES can withstand prolonged daily use (6-12+ months) worn inside a shoe with your weight on them through walking, running and general exercise. They may compress or change shape over time. Immediately replace them if you feel they are too worn out or if they cause discomfort.
Regularly clean your insoles by wiping down with a damp cloth and allowing the insoles to air dry before returning the insoles to your shoes.
Do not submerge in water or expose the insoles to harsh chemicals such as bleach or household disinfectants.
Do not wash your insoles inside a machine.
Do not expose your insoles to high temperatures or sunlight.
STRYDA SOLES are made from the bark of the cork tree using 100% sustainable practices without harming the trees. They are totally biodegradable. STRYDA SOLES and packaging are produced with no plastics or synthetic compounds.
