About Us

The Only Insoles Designed by a Board-Certified Foot and Ankle Surgeon

Cluffy Insoles are designed and patented by Dr. James Clough, a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon since 1983. Growing up as a runner and avid skier, Jim was naturally drawn to sports medicine. He made the decision to specialize in podiatry because “everything starts with the foot.” While attending the California School of Podiatric Medicine, Jim studied biomechanics, the science of human movement. He has incorporated this study into his practice from the very beginning of his professional career.

Dr. Clough became disenchanted with rigid orthotics to correct the foot problems experienced by his patients. Such devices can be expensive and don’t always address problems such as plantar fasciitis and heel pain that so many Americans experience. He designed the Cluffy Wedge and the Cluffy Insole to provide pain relief, stability, and comfort for everyday and athletic use. 

Dr. Clough continues to develop creative solutions for the foot, bringing his ideas to market through his company, Cluffy, LLC. After designing and patenting his first product, he and his wife, Nancy, started the company in 2002. Cluffy, LLC, is based in Polson, Montana, where the Cloughs enjoy gardening and their two English black labrador retrievers.

All products are made in the U.S.A.
