What if we told you that there’s a new product on the market that could help you run faster and jump higher? It would help protect you from injuries, too. And it’s all thanks to science. Meet VKTRY Performance Insoles (that’s “VKs” for short): they’re made from aerospace-grade, carbon fiber from heel to toe and VKs have been independently tested using digital force plates to show +9.3% more athletic explosiveness. The average performance improvements with VKs are +1.6” in vertical, 0.12 seconds in the 40-yard dash and +4” in the broad jump. Some of the best performances at the NFL Combine can be attributed to players wearing them. Trevor Knight, for example, the former Texas A&M Aggie, scored first place among all QBs at the 2017 Combine in the 40-yard dash, 60-yard shuttle, vertical jump and broad jump.

VKs also provide added support, stability, and shock absorption to protect athletes from injuries like plantar fasciitis, turf toe, stress fractures, tendonitis and shin splints. “I had struggled with nagging foot injuries. VKs keep me healthy while improving my explosive burst,” says Team USA Rugby player Carlin Isles (known also as the world’s fastest player). VKs are definitely not your grandpa’s orthotics.

Currently, athletes at over 100 Professional and College programs are using VKs — teams like the Patriots, Cowboys, Raiders, Eagles, Auburn, TCU and Duke to name a few. “I purchased VKs this season for our whole football team because of the injury prevention. But our players really love the increased explosiveness with VKs.” says Justin Smith, Head Athletic Trainer, NC State University. 2017 World Series MVP George Springer is on board too. “I was skeptical at first, but since using VKs, I have seen a major improvement in my ability to explode and drive power from my feet to my legs.”
