Pair with any insole for forefoot support

Metatarsal Support Pads

Fitting Guide
  • Metatarsal Pads support your metatarsal bones, taking pressure off the balls of your feet. They are a modular add-on that can be easily added (or removed) from any Tread Labs insole.

    Tread Labs insoles are made with a 2-part system. The molded arch supports and replaceable top covers peel apart for easy placement and adjustment of metatarsal pads.

    1. Open cell polyurethane foam shaped for optimum comfort.
    2. Low profile hook and loop attachment system is compatible with all Tread Labs insoles for easy positioning and adjustments.
    3. Small Met Pad thickness is 2mm; Medium is 4mm; Large is 6mm.
  • Position your met pads carefully. Center the pad between the inside and outside edges of your molded arch support. The broader, forward edge should stick out ¼ inch from the plastic arch support. Installed, the pad should be just behind the ball of your foot, not directly under it. More detailed instructions are here. Give your feet time to get used to the new pads. You’ll be glad you did.

Awesome insoles and metatarsal pads!

I have custom orthotics that are very old and falling apart and decided to try Tread Labs after reading all the reviews online. I ordered the medium arch with metatarsal pads and I love them! It is great to be able to adjust the placement of the pads and they really seem to be helping me with my bunions and flexible foot pronation. Highly recommend!

Hey Amy,
Being able to easily adjust the metatarsal pad to find your sweet spot makes all the difference! We're so glad you love them.

Great support

These metatarsal pads offer great support for high arches. I ordered large to get the widest area of coverage and experienced the least amount of discomfort in the balls of my feet. Instructions for placement were also very helpful and will order more as needed.
