ShockBlockers® Insole Inserts
Oregon Aero ShockBlockers absorb more shock than any other insole. Inserts are made using our own Visco-Kinetic™ material. In side-by-side drop weight test, our proprietary material absorbed more shock than vinyl sponge, neoprene sponge, sponge rubber, and latex foam material. More shock absorption means less wear to your feet and joints.
In addition to shock blocking properties, Oregon Aero ShockBlockers feature a top layer of low-friction, high-wicking fabric. The top fabric's exceptional wicking properties moves moisture and perspiration away from your feet keeping them dry and cool. For testing information see ShockBlockers Testing and Performance.

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your ShockBlockers Insole Inserts
Test fit your Visco-Kinetic ShockBlockers Insole Inserts in your shoes before trimming. If adjustments are necessary, you can use your shoe's original insoles or the included trimming guide as a template for sizing. Mark your ShockBlockers Inserts to size with a ballpoint pen and trim them to size with a pair of scissors.
Note: ShockBlockers Insole Inserts can be used with or without the shoes' original insoles; whichever you choose is a matter of personal preference.
Your ShockBlockers Insole Inserts must fill the shoe foot bed without cramping your toes. The insert should fill the bed of your shoe from toe to heel. Check to be sure your heel has minimal slippage and your toes have adequate room—too much space can cause your feet to slide around inside the shoe. Insole inserts should fit snug and not have bends or wrinkles.
After inserting your ShockBlockers Insole Inserts into your shoes, go for a walk or take a jog. Pay attention to how your feet feel. You should not feel any pressure points or pinches on your feet—especially around your small toes. If you do feel pressure points or discomfort, try a wider shoe or the next larger shoe size.
During the course of a day your feet can swell and enlarge somewhat. Because of this, we recommend you first try your ShockBlockers Insole Inserts later in the day while wearing your usual socks.
ShockBlockers are manufactured without the use of plasticizers. Because of this, ShockBlockers will not shrink, become brittle, or crack over time. Also, Oregon Aero's Visco-Kinetic material will not bottom out or become deformed after prolonged use. Users of ShockBlockers enjoy maximum shock absorption and comfort for the life of their shoes.
