This Shoe-Insole Company is Making Headways on Tour

With all the time golfers spend on their feet while they’re on the course, comfort is key. Though comfortable shoes are important, ALINE, a shoe-insole company gaining popularity on tour, might be something to consider for those looking for some support for their feet. The ALINE insoles feature a shock-absorbing gel, a biomechanics-friendly suspension system and ribs on the insole to help maintain better balance and stability on the course. This technology helps keep your body properly aligned, which minimizes the fatigue we all feel in our feet after a tough walk. The suspended structure also helps back, muscle and joint pain, and will help avoid foot injuries such as plantar fascitis. The company boasts that more than 100 tour players, including Kevin Na, 2157794Kelly Kraft and Ken Duke, plus caddies and teaching professionals are using the inserts.

ALINE Performance Insoles

I’m a sucker for a good golf gimmick, and I’ve tried just about everything to help my game. When I got the chance to review a set of “golf performance insoles” from ALINE, I knew I had to see what it was all about.

ALINE is a company that makes multiple types of insoles for everything from daily wear, to cycling and golf. I’m unclear on the differences between them, but this review is specifically for the Golf model. The first thing I noticed after taking them out of the bag is that they are much more rigid than I anticipated. They look very nice and are made of quality materials. Now for the real test, how did they perform?

It’s really important to follow the directions with these rigid insoles, because your feet will take some time to conform to the new shape. If you don’t, you’ll probably have a pretty bad experience. I broke mine in over the course of a week, wearing them an hour longer each day until they discomfort faded. The insoles feel quite odd at first. There is a pronounced bump in the middle of the insole and noticeable arch support, that really feels unnatural. Once the break-in process is complete, this feeling goes away and it’s actually going back to standard insoles that feels strange.

ALINE Performance Insoles

I wore these in my work boots full time and would transfer them to my golf shoes on the weekends. Let me get this part out of the way; the ALINEs did not directly help my golf game one bit. Having said that, they are a quality product that will get a recommendation from me. Once I became used to my new foot position, they helped my back and hip pain, my balance and my foot pain and fatigue. I could walk 18 holes without issue and more importantly, I could work my physically demanding job without the pain that used to plague me.

For the price point, you can’t do much better in terms of comfort and possible pain relief. I’m still wearing these insoles every day, over 3 months after I first received them. I don’t often gush over products, but these have made a world of difference for me, even if I’ve played some of the worst golf of my life in them.

ALINE Golf insoles retail for $69.95 and can be purchased directly from ALINE at www.aline.com
