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.

Took a day or two to get used to but now I won’t go without

Foot Pain Relief

I have been wearing my Ramble Insoles for 3 weeks. They have provided me with significant relief from pain after wearing my insoles every day. I'm able to take enjoyable walks again. These insoles were suggested to me by my podiatrist as a first step in relief therapy.

Plantar Fasciitis and Metatarsalgia Relief

I have been troubled by both plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia for years. Although I have been to podiatrists and other custom orthotic makers, nothing I have found before has matched the comfort and affordability of Tread Labs. I am now wearing Pace insoles for arch support with the addition of metatarsal support pads, and the combination works beautifully I really like the concept of an insole that can be opened up, allowing the met pad to be inserted and held firmly in place with velcro. I ordered online using the guides provided on the website, and it worked out great. I have had a few questions since then, so I wrote to the company and my questions were answered the next day - excellent service. I would recommend.


These took about a week to break in (or perhaps it took about a week for my feet to break in), but once they did, they really made my feet much more comfortable. I used to get a sore spot on the metatarsal from walking, and that seems to have gone away with these. Love them!

Great support

nice firm support for the arch. metatarsal pads nice size and firmness- could use better velcro. only negative is my size is out of stock.
