FAQs - Bespoke Insoles

 

How do I use my Impression Pads?

When you order bespoke insoles with Websters we’ll send you two impression pads (one for each foot). Place one of the pads on a level, flat piece of floor then stand with one foot on the pad being sure to put all your weight onto the pad to ensure you make a firm impression for us to manufacture your bespoke insoles accurately. Making an impression can take up to one minute per foot so make sure you have something (or someone) to hold onto! Once you’re satisfied you’ve made a good impression in the first pad, swap over and repeat the process for the other foot on the other pad. Once you’ve finished making your impressions, put the pads in the free post bag provided and send it back to us – then just kick back and relax while we digitally scan the impression pads to make your insoles.

How long will it take to delivery my insoles?

The impression pads will take 1 to 3 days to arrive. Once we recieve your impression pads back it will take us up to 5 working days to make your insoles. Then we will send them to you which may take up to 3 working days. Overall, if you post your impression pads back to us prompty, you should expect the process to take around 2 weeks

How long will my insoles last?

This is highly dependent on how much you use your insoles: Everyday insoles should last up to 2 years whereas keen runners, who use their insoles often, can expect their insoles to last up to 6 months.

Can I return my insoles for a refund?

Our bespoke insoles will be made specifically for you and we are not able to refund or exchange bespoke insoles unless they are faulty.

Can I wash my insoles?

You can carefully hand wash the insoles but do not machine wash, submerge in water or tumble dry them.

If I’d like more insoles will I have to go through the same Impression Pad process again?

No, once we make your insoles your foot shape is saved on our computer system so we can make copies of you insoles without having to send out further Impression Pads.

Are your soles the same as I would get from my orthotist/podiatrists?

No. Our insoles are made from similar materials but those dispensed by clinicians are usually for corrective purposes whereas ours are designed for additional comfort and not for corrective purposes.
