The roll call of athletes linked to Enertor is impressive. The brand says it’s not only helped Premier League footballers and Tour de France winners, but its insoles are endorsed and worn by none other than Olympic superstar and eight-time gold medallist Usain Bolt.
So, could they ever live up to the hype? The short answer is yes. We tried Enertor’s walking insoles, hiking up to 12 miles in them with no problems at all. In fact, these were the most comfortable pair we tried, striking the balance between protection and support. The unique PX1 shock-absorbing technology works by transmitting impact forces horizontally through the insole, reducing shockwaves through the leg. We found this stopped the dull ache we usually experienced in our knees and hips while walking, and reduced muscle fatigue. Unlike other insoles, which can be very rigid to give you the right support, these are softer and more flexible, with cushioned arch support to prevent pronation.
And these aren’t just for walkers – they would also be great for people who have to spend hours on their feet at work. Plus, if you have rheumatoid arthritis, plantar fasciitis or a number of other injuries, then the brand says these insoles could help. They are available in sizes from a UK 3 to a UK 14, with the brand recommending that you wear them gradually over the first couple of weeks to allow your feet time to get used to them. One pair is £34.99, but there are some great offers if you’re looking to buy more. We can’t fault them.
