ITS-F (In-The-Shoe) Wedges® have a symmetrical design with a 1.5 degree tilt per wedge that can be used in either the right or left shoe.
Research conducted on cyclist's feet showed that 96% of us have fore feet that are canted or tilted up to the inside inward ("varus") or outward toward the outside ("valgus"). The vast majority (87%) of cyclist's feet tilt up to the inside. Unfortunately, almost all cycling shoes, cleats and pedals take this natural tilt and force it flat. This can generate knee pain, create a foot "hotspot" and diminish power.
In the Shoe (ITS) Wedges® provide 1.5 degree of inward angulation (aka "varus") in cycling shoes that have ample room in the forefoot area. They are often used in conjunction with Cleat Wedges® or as a quick way of determining if inward or outward forefoot tilt or canting exists.
As an alternative to ITS Wedges some people solely rely on Cleat Wedges which are placed between the cycling shoe and cleat.
- A great, quick, alternative when Cleat Wedges may not work with the shoe cleat system, (e.g. with SPD cleats, where connection is limited by size and there is a potential for rough riding, off-road)
- Made in America
- Fills in volume for loose fitting shoes
- Cut to fit and works great with insoles
- Not recommended for shoes that are already tight, or snug fitting
