The film includes fastening hook or loop material on at least one surface whereby detachable cushioning elements can be attached to the film. The cushioning element is preferably a sheet of loop cloth that continuously covers one or both surfaces of the film. The cushioning pads also contain a sheet of loop or hook material on one or both surfaces. The pads can be inclined to affect pronation or can contain apertures to relieve stress. The outer edges of the pads and the upper edge of the aperture are preferably chamfered or rounded to reduce discomfort.
