Surefoot, a Park City-based manufacturer of athletic footwear, has released a new brand of "over-the-counter" running insoles that will be sold in specialty sports and running stores. According to a press release, the brand is called Conforma and is the result of Surefoot’s three decades worth of experience designing footwear. "Most insoles on the market are made of layered materials that have virtually no flexibility," said Bob Shay, CEO and founder of Surefoot, in the release. "But Conforma uses lightweight materials that move the foot through the entire gait while providing critical cushioning and maintaining neutral support."
