This fall, Waco, Texas-based Spenco Medical Corp. will debut a replacement insole called Spenco Earthbound for men and women. The $40 insole features 100 percent recycled nylon in the stability cradle, with full-foot cushioning created from 65 percent recycled EVA and natural cork. An antimicrobial top cloth is made with 40 percent recycled polyester, and the packaging is produced entirely from recycled paper and printed with soy-based inks. Special features include a deep heel cup for stability, the company’s 3-Pod cushioning system to control pronation and a forefoot crash pad under the ball of the foot to relieve pressure. The insoles run from women’s sizes 3 to 12 and men’s sizes 6 to 15. Earthbound insoles will be available at REI in October, with further distribution to come in running and outdoor retailers, among others.
