Powerstep is a manufacturer of orthotic supports. Founded in 1991, Powersteps Orthotic Insoles are made in Indiana and Ohio. Dr. Les Appel, the founder of Powerstep, is a podiatrist, foot surgeon and runner of 35 years. Having prescribed and created thousands of custom orthotics to meet the individual needs of his patients, Dr. Appel determined that there are a few common orthotic shapes that could benefit most foot pain patients. Developing a ready-to-wear orthotic to relieve foot pain became a bi-product of Dr. Appel’s years of experience. Powerstep Orthotics are designed as a true orthotic support and not just cushioned insoles. Powersteps are orthotic shoe inserts that align, improve and correct foot function. Powerstep Otrthotic Insoles support the entire foot to bring foot pain relief and reduce soreness by correcting pronation and alleviating plantar fasciitis.
Powerstep is based in Cincinnati, Ohio and has manufacturing facilities in Indiana and Ohio, making Powerstep a USA made product. Powerstep Orthotic Shoe Insoles use a polypropylene semi-flexible plastic shell that is encapsulated between layers of soft foam cushioning.These orthotic supports are flexible enough to be comfortable yet firm enough to give your foot a solid foundation and support. These ready-to-wear orthotics effectively relieve foot pain more affordable and more conveniently than custom made orthotics.

Now, over 4,000 medical professionals nationwide prescribe Powerstep Orthotics and thousands of retailers sell them in stores.
