Acupressure, or magnetic therapy, insoles are specially engineered to provide a massaging effect. They’re covered with tiny magnetic nodules that gently apply pressure to acupoints on your feet that are directly linked to every part of your body. This is called reflexology. These insoles are believed to be helpful at easing discomfort due to conditions like plantar fasciitis, metatarsal pain and more. Ahead, we did some research and rounded up a few of our favorite models on the market for both men and women. All of them are trimmable to fit most foot sizes comfortably.
