Powerstep Orthotics Pinnacle Full Length Orthotics
Your arch shape should determine which insole is best for you.
Neutral arches tend to cause mild pronation — foot and ankles roll slightly inward, placing pressure on big toe and inside of foot. Neutral arches need firm, yet flexible arch support for shock absorption and proper alignment.
The PowerStep® Pinnacle, with built-in neutral arch support and two layers of plush cushioning, is the perfect balance of comfort and support. Featuring the signature PowerStep® arch shape, these insoles cradle the arch and heel, adding stability and motion control, to control excess stress on joints and tendons.
By combining the PowerStep® orthotics clinically-proven arch shape, semi-rigid neutral arch support shell, and cushioning, the PowerStep® Pinnacle is a trusted solution to improve foot function, decrease arch pain, and help alleviate common foot conditions typically caused by mild pronation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Powerstep Orthotics?
Some people refer to Powerstep orthotics as “arch supports,” but they do more than that! Powerstep orthotics are shoe inserts that help to correct improper foot alignment during activities like walking and running. Even though Powerstep orthotics work directly on foot position, they also affect the alignment of ankles, knees, hips, and the low back, because everything is linked together in a biomechanical chain!
What are Some Foot Types and Orthotic Qualities?
- Low arched feet or flat feet are those that do not have much of a gap between the floor and the arch of the foot when standing. This foot type is very flexible and needs rigid Powerstep orthotics.
o Rigid Orthotic: These type of Powerstep orthotics control the motion in the foot. Look for an orthotic that is inflexible with good arch support. Push down on the arch. If it collapses under finger pressure, it is not rigid enough. Note that these types of Powerstep orthotics may feel strange when first worn because of its rigidity and shape.
- High arched feet are those that have a large gap between the floor and the arch of the foot when standing. This foot type tends to be rigid and needs soft Powerstep orthotics.
o Soft Orthotic: This type of orthotic is somewhat flexible and is cushioned so it can absorb the shock of running. Look for an orthotic that has flexibility and cushioning, but that still supports the arch and has some stiffness. Note that this type of orthotic may need to be replaced more often once the shock absorption capabilities have worn out.
How to Tell if it’s the Right Fit?
Once you have selected a pair of Powerstep orthotics, take them out of the packaging and place them on the floor. While barefoot or in just stocks, stand on both pieces before you place them in shoes. If you are shopping for an orthotic for flat feet, note the arch support in the orthotic: does it work? If you are shopping for a soft orthotic, does it seem to absorb shock and provide enough cushioning?
How to fit the Orthotics to Your Shoes?
Your orthotics may have to be trimmed down around the toe area in order to fit into your shoes. Follow the instructions on the package, trimming off only small sections at a time, following the curve from the ball of the foot all the way around the toes. After trimming a small section, attempt to insert them in your shoes. If they still do not fit, repeat. Remember: you can easily trim more off, but you can’t put it back if you trim too much!
How to Break In Orthotics?
Sometimes, when people start wearing Powerstep orthotics, they may experience soreness in their feet, legs, or low back. A short period of soreness is normal, but can be reduced and/or eliminated if you gradually get your body used to your new orthotics. Follow these steps to break in new orthotics:
• Get used to your new orthotics during activities of daily living, such as school and shopping. Wear your orthotics in the shoes that you will be using them in the most (if possible).
• Increase your wear time by 2 hours each day. For example, on the first day, wear your orthotics for 2 hours, and then remove them from your shoes. On the second day, wear them for 4 hours and then remove them, and so on.
• If you notice soreness, you can remain on the same level of wear time for a few days until the soreness subsides. Then, continue increasing wear time by 2 hours each day.
• Wait to use your orthotics in your sport shoes until you can wear them comfortably for a full day during activities of daily living. Then gradually increase the use of the orthotics in your sport shoes over a few days. Start by just using them for running, and then increase the amount and type of activity performed while wearing them.
