BGS InSoles are derived from extensive podiatric research and designed to bring comfort, reduce skin problems and prevent foot deformities.

Sitting and listening to Mr. Gonzalez that morning in The Oriental Spa, I realized both my husband and I had been completely ill informed about having the correct insoles made for your feet. “Each foot is unique; it has its morphology and complexity. Feet support body weight and its daily impact, and therefore this need particular and professional attention,” said Mr. Gonzalez.

They are thermoformed and personalized to fit your shoe. In other locations when you have insoles made there is a measurement taken, the measurements are sent to a central location where a standard insole is made with standard amendments to some of your needs.
