Carbon Fiber Insoles for Running Shoes

 

 

Do you currently wear an insert or orthotic?  Have you been told you should be wearing an insole for running?  Do you have flat feet?  Do you get foot pain with running? Do you want to perform better as a runner?  These are all common problems I have helped runners with for the past 17 years as a running physical therapist and coach and I am excited to bring on Matt Arciuolo who is an expert in the field of all things foot and ankle!

 

 

Matt is a Board Certified Pedorthist and has been helping athletes recover from injuries for over 30 years. As Victory’s founder and inventor, he has been helping athletes stay healthier and perform up to their true potential.”

Listen to the Podcast Episode during your next run!

 

In this episode, Matt shares his family lineage as Italian immigrant shoe makers and how that upbringing allowed him to come up with the idea to use carbon fiber for performance enhancement.  This invention helped the USA bobsled team win Olympic gold long before any of us runners ever thought about carbon fiber shoes!

 

Listen in to learn what Matt had to say about the following questions on carbon fiber:

 

  • What are carbon fiber insoles?
  • What is the difference between carbon fiber insoles like VKTRY and carbon fiber shoes?
  • What are the benefits of carbon fiber insoles?
  • Are there certain running related injuries that may respond best to carbon fiber insoles. Can these help plantar fasciitis, achilles tendon pain, and 1st toe joint arthritis?
  • Is there an arch type that responds best to carbon fiber insoles?   
  • Can carbon fiber insoles be used for road running and trail running?
  • Why should runners choose VK’s?

“I don’t have enough words to express my gratitude towards Duane Scotti and the Spark Healthy Runner program. When I started working with Duane, I had been dealing with chronic shin splints/posterior tibialis tendinitis for almost a year.

I had worked with multiple other coaches and physical therapists with little success and was at the point of almost giving up on my love for running. Duane is so kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable as both a physical therapist and running coach. Our first virtual meeting lasted two hours because he was so meticulous in his assessment. His strength and running program is progressive and created so that you can continue to build strength and mileage as you heal. His strength program is unique, effective, and fun.

Additionally, his warm-up routine is awesome and includes drills that over time have made me a more efficient runner. His training platform is easy to use, and he is always readily available to chat when problems or questions arise.

Over four months of working with Duane, I have built back to five days a week of running and am almost back up to my pre-injury weekly mileage and long run distance. Whenever I have flare ups or setbacks, Duane reassures me and makes necessary adjustments so that I can continue to progress in my running journey. I have had so much success with him so far that I have signed on for four more months so that he can help me to continue getting stronger as I train for the Dopey challenge in Disney World.

If you are struggling with a running injury and are feeling hopeless, you have to reach out to Duane Scotti. Of course, you will have to put in a lot of hard work, but with Duane by your side, you will be able to achieve your goals and more. Thank you Spark Healthy Runner for bringing the spark back to my running!”

You can teach an old dog new tricks!!!  I have never considered myself a runner and I knew I needed to be smart about it because I am no spring chicken. Spark preached getting strong and healthy to be injury free and they practice what they preach.  I am soooo glad I made the investment in me!  I finished my half marathon last weekend and couldn’t be any happier!  The program fed me all the steps I needed to essentially learn how to run long distance, build strength, nutrition help, a forum of other runners and probably most important was the 1:1 coaching.  I had no idea how to tackle training for a 1/2 marathon and this program broke all of it down, had it individualized for me and we tweaked as we went to make sure I was staying healthy and strong.  I had so many questions the week prior to my race and Coach Cat was always there for me and answering all the questions and issues I had-and believe me there were a lot!  The biggest benefit I think I got was the strength. I am strong and fit. But most important was what I gained emotionally.  I built confidence and strength I didn’t know I had, even at my age.  Honestly could not have done this without Spark Healthy Runners!

My Healthy Runner journey started after I had battled bilateral achilles pain for a few months and was frustrated how it affected my running. As soon as I talked to Duane I knew I had made the right decision. His positivity, enthusiasm and genuine care are infectious. The training plan that was tailored to me included specific exercises to rehab my injury and I was so excited that I didn’t have to stop running. It took patience to only run slow for a few weeks but I trusted the process and it got me me to where I am now: running pain free. We made adjustments to the plan throughout whenever needed having someone in your corner that is always there with guidance and support throughout the process was invaluable.

I just ran my second half marathon, both with Duane’s coaching, and PR’d by over 9 minutes! I got all choked up in the last mile when I realized that I felt strong and could still kick it up a notch.

I’m so thankful for the Healthy Runner program, community and the entire coaching team for all the support!
