OrthoLite® X40, Ultra and 0.11 Originals Insoles Earn American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance

Comfort-approved! Happy feet-approved!

The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) has granted its Seal of Acceptance to the OrthoLite X40, Ultra and 0.11 Originals insoles. According to APMA, the honor is granted to products found to promote good foot health.

When any of our 550 brand partners–the world’s leading footwear brands–choose an OrthoLite X40, Ultra, or 0.11 Originals for their shoes, it’s a promise that the insole is a podiatric-endorsed, healthy option for their customers’ well-being.

Our feet have 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, and 19 muscles each. Whether we’re on our feet for work, play, or both, everyone implicitly understands the crucial importance of proper support, comfort, and tailored performance.

Those parameters of underfoot performance have been at the center of our mission for 27 years. We even pioneered the use of closed cell PU foam in insoles in order to ensure those attributes, while also ensuring a cooler, drier, and healthier environment inside the shoe.

“OrthoLite is the first point of contact between the shoe and the person wearing the shoe. It is OrthoLite’s insoles that make the biggest impact on the consumer in terms of the comfort of the shoe. This is a responsibility that we take very seriously to deliver on as it is what frames the consumers’ experience of a purchase from their favorite footwear brands,” said Glenn Barrett, founder and CEO of OrthoLite. “We are incredibly honored to be recognized by APMA for the comfort and performance that our X40, Ultra, and 0.11 Originals insoles deliver.”
