It’s no secret that shredding all day takes a toll on your feet. From lack of circulation to discomfort and cramping; not missing a pow turn because your feet hurt seems like some kind of college science experiment, and we all know how that class turned out. When we strapped on the new Remind Insoles this past winter we were pleasantly surprised to find out that someone else took that class for us.
Based out of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, John Makens took 30 years of bio-mechanical engineering, a passion for skateboarding and snowboarding and created an insole with one goal in mind - to live the dream a little less painfully. The idea is to prolong the health and longevity for skateboarders and snowboarders by promoting care and awareness of the feet.
But don’t take our word for it, with team riders like Travis Rice, Bryan Iguchi, Mark Carter and Kevin Jones just on the snowboard side, you know they are doing something right. “I spent years trying to find a solution to make my feet happy,” says Travis Rice. “The Cush has ended that search! Tried and true, Remind reigns supreme.”
Remind offers three different custom insoles: The Cush, The Medic and The Remedy – all three with an anti-microbial fabric to keep your feet cool, dry and happy.
The Remedy offers a self-molding, tri-foam deep heal seat construction for high impact absorption and protection. Recommended for those in need of high arch support, The Remedy utilizes a semi-rigid insert to support and flex with the foot’s natural movements.
Rocking Remind’s new Blue Magic Protection throughout the entire insole, The Medic is for those who like to go big. If you’re dropping huge cliffs, Blue Magic absorbs the heaviest of shock impacts to help protect the heel and forefoot from bruising and injury without ever packing out.
Lastly, Remind offers The Cush, a self-molding insole that utilizes a deep heel seat with Blue Magic that’s ready to go right out of the box; no need for a custom molding process. The Blue Magic absorbs heavy impacts while the self-forming arch molds to your specific foot and arch shape to keep your feet and body aligned.
One last thing to remember: when you use a custom insole your foot is placed back in its normal position as if no weight was on it. Meaning you might need a boot about a half size smaller.
