Back in 1991, Dr. Les Appel, the founder of PowerStep as well as a podiatrist and avid runner, recognized the need for ready-to-wear orthotic insoles that would be both affordable and easily attainable for people struggling with common foot pain. He began to see a similar pattern in the share of the custom-made orthotics that he prescribed to patients. Dr. Appel combined this knowledge of foot anatomy, along with his passion for running, to create the first PowerStep insoles.
Nearly 30 years later, we continue to develop the PowerStep orthotic insole line along with compression socks, bracing options, and other foot care accessories with the goal of helping people prevent pain from common foot conditions and lead active, healthy lives.
The majority of our insoles are designed and produced at our Ohio facility, and we take pride in our products! We follow strict quality standards that allow us to provide the trusted, quality insoles our customers expect from the leading brand in the industry. We have over 80 years of manufacturing and development experience in the foot care industry.
With a growing catalog of 40 plus products, PowerStep has become the leading brand in the orthotics industry. Our insoles are prescribed by thousands of medical professionals and are also available at retail locations nationwide.
