A question we get a lot… “This seems too good to be true… insoles that help athletes run faster & jump higher… are these things legal?”
Yes, carbon fiber insoles are used by thousands of elite athletes across multiple sports from football to pickleball. In fact, VKTRY Insoles were invented in 2009 and the product helped the US Olympic Bobsled Team capture the gold medal for the first time in 62 years. Similar to how carbon fiber equipment has grown in sports like cycling, tennis and golf, VKTRY Insoles are a technological advancement that helps athletes fulfill their full potential.
VKTRY Insoles have been scientifcally proven to help reduce injuries (up to 41% in a recent study). VKs also help athletes recover from injuries. Additionally, it would be quite surprising for a sports governing body to ban a product that has been proven to help prevent athletic injuries.
“After an extensive 6-month research study, it is clear that VKTRY Insoles improve lower body biomechanics, stability of the ankle and knee during running, and shock absorption during landing. These improvements can help safeguard athletes by providing injury protection,” said Dr. Doug Casa, CEO of the Korey Stringer Institute at the University of Connecticut.
