Flat feet are not the problem. Fallen arches, or what we commonly call “flat feet”, are actually a warning sign that there is a problem, which is malalignment of the lower limbs, as the feet flatten and adapt to walking on modern day flat, unyielding surfaces.
Lower limb malalignment puts excessive stress on our joints, leading to excessive wear and tear and overuse injuries, such as heel spur, knee pain and lower back ache, and eventually osteoarthritis of the knee, hip and spine.
According to medical research, 4 in 5 people over age 65 in high-income countries suffer from osteoarthritis (OA). Those who develop OA are also getting younger².

Our founder Dr. Leong Lee San believes that our feet were designed to walk on soft earth that naturally moulded to and supported the foot with every step.
Formthotics™ insoles naturally support your feet, adjusting your gait so that your limbs are properly aligned and functioning optimally.
Whether you are already encountering pain, or simply wish to improve your foot biomechanics and prevent common overuse injuries, give Formthotics™ a try and experience the benefits of walking on "soft earth".
I (have been) a user of Formthotics for the past year after I recovered from plantar fasciitis. I was looking for a good solution to prevent this terrible injury for which I had to lay off for a year. Since then I have had no issues with my plantar fascia. The support it provides is amazing and adjusts well to fit my feet as I use them. I have since (gone) on to run the Singapore national best for the half marathon with a time of 1:07:53 as well as winning the SEA games in Myanmar for the marathon event. Formthotics should be built into every shoe!
