Footbed can be described as An insole in a boot or shoe used for cushioning or to provide a better fit.  The footbed is the inside part of the shoe that runs under the bottom of the foot.Some Shoes designs are developed to have contoured footbeds that may provide cushioning and support for different areas of the foot. They may have structural arch supports,cushioning and shaped to cradle the foot.Sandals have a non-removable footbed and so the structural and cushioning elements must be built into the footbed itself.

Footbed Features

Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) foam is a shock-absorbing element commonly used for footbeds of all types of footwear. It can be compression molded to specific shapes as desired. It can be made with recycled materials or blended with other materials such as cork.Natural materials used for footbeds include cellulose, latex rubber, jute, bamboo, cork, and leather.

Some shoe manufacturers add anti-microbial elements to their footbeds. These help keep the shoes fresh and prevent foot oduor. Insulated footbeds can be desirable for cold-weather shoes and boots, keeping the heat generated by the foot in the shoe and not allowing the cold from the ground to penetrate into the shoe.
