In need of some extra support in your shoes? Look no further than the DoctorInsole FitStep orthotic insoles, designed for active men and women.

Perfect for running, walking, sports and hiking, these insoles are a step ahead of the rest. Not only do they support and correct your step, but they are also designed to help relieve a number of issues and conditions, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, ankle weakness, neuroma and more.

How do they work?

The DoctorInsole technology helps to align feet into a more biomechanically efficient position. This means that as you walk and run, the weight in your foot is more evenly distributed. This action of balancing and straightening your step makes it less likely that you'll put more strain on one area, so you're less prone to injury.

Who can wear them?

Anyone! These insoles are designed for athletes of all levels and people with more serious conditions, such as Achilles tendinitis, ankle sprains, bunions and Freiberg's disease. Whether you need added support on a daily basis or for more high-impact workouts, these insoles were built to handle both. Users are guaranteed extra padding and stability as they move.

How much do they cost?

The DoctorInsole FitStep insoles typically retail at $99.95, but now, DoctorInsole is offering a sitewide discount exclusively for CNN readers. When you shop DoctorInsole using promo code "CNN25OFF", you'll get your insoles at 25% off. Now, they'll cost just $75 before shipping costs are applied.

Why choose DoctorInsole?

DoctorInsole is marketed as "the first over-the-counter, custom-grade orthotic insole moderately priced at a fraction of the cost of a traditional custom." When you consider how expensive custom orthotics can be, this is good news for those who can get away with using a store-bought option, such as the FitStep insoles. In fact, a quick Google search will show you that custom orthotics can cost anywhere from $400 to $600 on average — which makes off-the-shelf options worth a try for some.

The Doctorinsole site has a whole page dedicated to explaining the potential benefits of using its products. It says problems resulting from poor walking habits, such as pronation or improper foot positioning, should be prevented before they start, and that the protection and support provided by its insoles will do just that.

Finally, fans of the DoctorInsoles brand say they love them, too. One customer said: "I've had pain in my arches, plantar fasciitis, a torn Achilles tendon and more. Now with DoctorInsole, I can walk straight and my ankles feel stable again!"
