What are Barefoot Science (BFS)
Foot Strengthening Insoles?

Barefoot Science (BFS) Foot Strengthening Insoles are the ONLY insoles available that will return your foot to its natural shape - relieving pressure, strengthening foot muscles, improving balance and circulation, and bringing your body back into natural, healthy alignment. Our soft and comfortable insoles use a safe, gentle and progressive multi-step insert system. Barefoot Science (BFS) Foot Strengthening Insoles gradually and effectively re-train the forty small foot muscles – CURING rather than treating the symptoms or bracing the foot and causing further damage.

Barefoot Science (BFS) effectively relieves pain and discomfort by treating:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Flat feet
  • Excessive pronation
  • Muscle fatigue and cramping
  • Shin splints
  • Foot related knee problems
  • Hip, Back and Shoulder pain
  • Bunions, corns, and calluses

Barefoot Science (BFS) Foot Strengthening Insole Systems Use Your Body’s Own BioFeedback to Fix Your Feet

Unlike orthotics which brace and immobilize the foot and cause more damage, or other insoles that just cushion sore feet to relieve symptoms, Barefoot Science (BFS) uses your body’s own natural muscle and nerve systems to bring your foot’s small muscles gently and progressively back into a natural, healthy alignment.

Here’s how it works:

It’s actually a lack of sensory stimulation to the sole of the foot that causes most foot problems. This lack of stimulation results in an unstable arch system and weakened foot muscles – negatively affecting how you walk.

For most people this results in excessive pronation (instep rolls inward as the toes point outward) and for some in excessive supination (instep rolls out while toes point inward). These instabilities place excessive amounts of degenerative stress on the muscles and joints, and are the leading cause of most foot related problems and pain.

The distinctive soft dome contour on each insole exerts a mild pressure on the sole of your foot, stimulating reflex muscle contractions that lift and stabilize the arch.

The series of progressively firmer inserts that make up the balance of the patented Barefoot Science (BFS) Foot Strengthening System increase the degree of stimulus. As you steadily progress through the insert levels, you safely re-train and strengthen the muscles that support your foot – just like an in-shoe exercise program – and just like the scientific principles used in sports and rehabilitative medicine. The result is a stronger and more flexible foot. Plus you’ll be comfortable and less prone to injury and fatigue.

These underfoot imprints demonstrate the vast improvement in pressure points of the foot after using Barefoot Science (BFS) Insoles. In the image on the right, you can see how the foot has been pulled up into a natural, aligned shape with a proper arch pattern.
