The good news is that there are many brands and products to choose from. Most products on the market are made from foam and plastic. The added structure can provide arch support and comfort and that may be all that a casual basketball player is looking for. Brands like Dr. Scholl’s offer Sport Insoles for $20-$50. Or you can upgrade to brands like Superfeet, Sof Sole and Protalus for $40-$70. All of these products are upgrades over the simple foam insoles that come with your basketball shoes.
For athletes more serious about their sports, VKTRY Insoles are full-length, carbon fiber insoles that sell for $99-$169. They are the only insoles scientifically proven to help athletes jump higher (+1.6”) and land softer. In addition to higher verticals, “VKs” also help with explosiveness (+9.3%). If the shoe or an insole is too soft, an athlete can lose responsiveness. The VKTRY Insoles provide a firm, stable base for push off to help with that important first step and cutting through the lane.
"In basketball, jumping a couple inches higher and having a more explosive first step, makes a huge difference in your game. Besides the performance benefits, I really like the added stability and shock absorption you get with VTRY Insoles which helps to protect against injuries. I think all athletes, parents and coaches should try VKTRY Insoles for themselves - I'm glad I did." – Tracy McGrady, Basketball HOFer and legend
If you want the best basketball insole for performance and protection, there’s no substitute for VKTRY.
