Who uses RTP carbon fiber inserts?2017-06-21T22:05:51-04:00

RTP carbon fiber inserts are currently being used by athletes in the NFL, NBA, NCAA, and NAIA.

Orthopedic Surgeons, Sports Medicine Physicians, Podiatrists, Chiropractors, Athletic Trainers and Physical therapists recommend them to their patients.

Which insert should I choose?2017-07-26T12:46:10-04:00


The RTP Semi-Rigid Carbon Fiber Insert is best used for turf-toe, mid-foot sprains, metatarsal stress fractures, toe fractures, prevention of recurring chronic injuries, and transition from rigid insert to semi-rigid as injury improves.


The RTP Rigid Carbon Fiber Insert is used for more acute injuries that need more rigidity, such as Lis Franc, metatarsal fractures, acute turf toe, and transition from walking boot to shoe. Usually athletes are started with this insert when they return to play.


The RTP Arthritic/Post-Op Carbon Fiber Insert has very minimal flex and is used primarily for mid-foot arthritis or other conditions requiring minimal movement of the foot and post-op care of foot and toe surgeries. Not recommended for athletes to compete in.

How do I know exactly what size to order?2017-06-06T14:19:11-04:00

RTP Carbon Fiber Inserts are sized to fit your normal shoe size. To properly size the insert, stand barefoot and measure foot in cm and that converts to proper size.

Do they come in half sizes?2017-06-06T14:18:43-04:00

RTP Carbon Fiber Inserts only come in full sizes. If you wear a half size go down to nearest size. If you wear a 10 ½ then order a 10.

Do you have women’s sizes?2017-06-21T22:14:41-04:00

RTP Carbon Fiber Inserts are sized for men. Women’s shoes are generally 1 size larger than men’s, so if a female wears a size 10 she would order a male’s size 9.
