If you find yourself with sore, tired feet and legs at the end of a long day of mountain runs, these are for you!

For better comfort, more control and less fatigue, try our Sports Insoles for Ski and Skate. The WeightFlex® technology orthotic core supports the foot arches while giving you the flexibility you need to move freely. A large toe bank stretches the small toes for better contact between the feet and shoes while a deep heel cup supports the back of the foot during side-to-side movements, making banking through the snow easier and more comfortable. Lined with a thermo-regulating cover, these insoles insulate your foot to ensure warm, dry feet all day long!

Winter sports like skiing and snowboarding can put a lot of pressure on your joints, especially your knees.

The thighs work overtime when we’re bending our legs all day long, and at the end of the day we can feel so sore! These Bauerfeind Sports Compression Sleeves come in pairs and can be worn throughout your day on the slopes to reduce inflammation and fatigue.

This increased circulation warms the muscle belly to reduce the risk of injury while the moisture-wicking microfiber material keeping the skin comfortably cool.
