3D Printed Insoles



The footscanning technology used at The Footstop intuitively translates your dynamic data into the Phits Insole design to complement the knowledge of the medical professional. 3D printing has also provided many clinical advantages over traditional orthotics, including directional and localised stiffness to cater for the individual’s unique foot structure and movement.

Phits are also less than half the weight, accurate to within 0.1mm and exact replicas can be produced if required. They are protected by D3O®, the leading impact protection material, which offers maximal shock absorption, comfort, and extreme durability.

Orthotics are not just a therapy for pain, they are widely used as a preventative measure to reduce the risk of injury, minimise fatigue and improve running performance.

Marathon world record-breaker Paula Radcliffe explains: “Without the support of Phits Insoles, it would have been impossible to recover after my surgery and most likely I wouldn’t have been able to continue my running career.”

Lily Partridge was assessed at a ‘Phits Expert’ clinic prior to becoming British champion at the London Half Marathon back in March, since stating: “Phits Insoles are amazing, I couldn’t imagine not having them in my shoes and definitely feel that I am running much more balanced. Even in the first run I felt like I was held in a much better position!”

More recently, reigning British marathon champion Charlotte Purdue attended a clinic for her footscan® analysis and Phits Insoles as she prepares for a very important year ahead.

“Working with these guys has enabled me to look after all the 1%s which will enable me to keep training hard, consistently and injury free,” she says.


Many of the UK’s elite runners such as Sir Mo Farah, Lynsey Sharp and Eilish McColgan regularly use this cutting edge footscan® technology to provide accurate, objective information about their running and footwear. Eilish emphasises the importance of this footscan® data, promoting the ethos “if you’re not testing, you’re just guessing!”

So, whether you are chasing after a qualifying time for the Olympic marathon or just want to play some tennis in your free time, you want to perform in the most optimal conditions. Phits 3D Printed Insoles can help you achieve this.

There are other types of orthotics available. Our experienced podiatrist may decide that ‘off the shelf’ orthotics are more suitable for you and this is something that can be discussed in your initial consultation.
