Steel 1/2 stabilizer plate rigid insoles, half-length, and full length are used to stiffen the shoe’s insole. This will limit the range of motion of the forefoot and midfoot. Doing so will make the shoe non-flexible. These steel shank shoe inserts (either 1/2 or full length) will limit the dorsiflexion at the metatarsal joints. Immobilizing the forefoot and metatarsal joints prevent the joints from bending during walking and sports.
Atlas Biomechanics produces two types of steel shank shoe inserts.
