Custom orthotics are designed specifically for your feet and intended to restore them to their ideal condition. There is no such thing as wearing them too much, but at some point, your podiatrist may say that it is alright to stop wearing them, or only to wear them during certain activities.

Generally, you should wear custom orthotics whenever possible, but there are times when it matters more than others. It is more important to wear your insoles when your feet will be working hard, standing for long periods, or exercising. It is less important to wear them when you are sitting for an extended time, like at your desk or in front of the TV.

What if You Don't Wear Orthotics All the Time?

If you don't wear your orthotics as prescribed, you are unlikely to get the desired results. Either the improvement will take longer than it should, or you won't feel the benefits of orthotics at all.

How to Wear Your Orthotics All the Time

To make sure you can wear your orthotics as recommended, order at least two pairs for differently styled shoes. Get a pair for flats, sports shoes, and sneakers, and another pair designed for dress shoes. This way you're covered so that no matter what the occasion is, you'll be able to wear orthotics.
