The Achilles Shield Sport is designed to protect the back, Achilles tendon area of your heel from the abrasive rear edge of stiff footwear, especially while breaking them in. The Achilles Shield Sport is the more athletic vertical insole. It has greater shock absorption, compression recovery, and its surface has better non-slip properties. This keeps it in place at the back of your shoe during high-energy activities.

- Shields back of heel from rigid footwear
- Absorbs and redirects force away from sensitive heel area
- Cradles the heel, providing cushion and support
- 2.5 inches tall
- Can be used above or under other orthotic inserts

The Achilles Shield Sport is perfect for breaking-in new cleats, climbing, and cycling shoes that are painfully stiff out the box, or continuous use in athletic shoes and hiking boots for the added comfort.

What goes into creating these insoles?
The process of designing one of our products is a remarkably artistic and scientific one. It brings together many disciplines: starting with the hand-drawn artwork, clay shaping to capture the biomechanical organic curvature, woodworking, hand-poured molds, 3D CAD modeling, 3D printing, material testing and tweaking... A lot of time and care goes into our insoles.

Great response time, they shipped my order almost immediately even though it was a holiday weekend. I would definitely recommend ordering from this shop.

Genius Product! I can't believe how great this works. I comfortably used them all day today on a pair of shoes that had previously rubbed the back of my ankle raw. I am so excited to wear again all those shoes that I had put to the side. I told everyone about it at work! Incredible! THANK YOU!

Bought this for my bf because he got new shoes that were giving him blisters on his back heel and this totally did the job his back heel no longers rubs against the shoe and he can now wear his shoes comfortably. Def recommend!!

I am shocked at how well these worked. I bought some expensive Italian leather bootie flats and the heel instantly gave me blisters and were so uncomfortable to wear because the heel was stuff and hard. I couldn't return the shoes so I searched high and low for something that could protect my heel. My husband actually found these for me, and I am hooked! Thank you so much for creating a product that truly works! I will be back for more!
