Supportive and protective

I have had the SOLE brand insoles in my footwear since I purchased a pair of Redwing boots a few years ago. I discovered the amazing support needed for me was established from the inside not the outside. I did some research to find the SOLE brand was the real source of the insole. I purchased my first pair of active Soles about 6 months later for my sneakers and basically eliminated all of my foot pain. It doesn't matter how inexpensive the shoes are as long as I have my Soles to support my feet I am good to go. I have also recently discovered another important quality about SOLE; because of the thickness they have saved my foot on 2 occasions from a roofing nail. They both penetrated my shoes only to stop short of my foot because of the SOLE footbed. I would definitely recommend the purchase for every shoe you wear.

Insole Review

Love, love, love your insoles. I have been wearing them in my footwear for almost 20 years and cannot live without them. I didn't realize that my insoles were wearing down until one day I started having pain in my left foot. I went to see a foot specialist who recognized the issue. I came home and placed an order for 3 pair. My feet and I are happy again, thank you for creating such an amazing product.

Walking on a cloud

I love to hike. I started having a lot of foot pain so a friend recommended SOLE inserts. It is like walking on a cloud and my foot pain is gone! I highly recommend!

Brad MacDougall


Amazing footbeds!

These footbeds have saved my feet. I can stand much longer in my shoes, and they also make exercise much more enjoyable. My flat feet no longer suffer!

Donna Falcon


Heel Pain Solved

Ordered these inserts to help with my heel pain due to plantar fasciitis. Wanted to be able to wear multiple pairs of tennis shoes without having to transfer my orthotics each time I chose a different pair of shoes. These are great!!

Active Medium for achilles

I have chronic achilles tendonitis. The Active Medium footbeds have given me tremendous relief with my achilles and pronation problems. In the near future I will be buying the thin footbed for narrower shoes. I would highly recommend you try the footbeds. Thanks SOLE...

David Saxe


No turning back!

It's been 4 years now since I began to use SOLE insoles and I've tried several different styles for my needs. Each style has a place in my shoe arsenal. My go to is the Active Medium which lives in my running shoes, my gym shoes, and my every day shoes! There is no turning back now! No new pair of shoes goes without SOLE, and my favorite shoes always get a new pair of insoles when the time is right. I put 'em on my Christmas list every year, and luckily Santa provides! Thanks so much SOLE!

Helps with pronation

I was experiencing knee pain after walking. After I started using the SOLE footbeds in my runners, I no longer have knee pain.

back home

My feet are happy to be back home in SOLE again.

Jennifer Amores


Love these foot beds!

My physical therapist recommended these to me years ago. I have a chronic pain due to an ankle sprain, that didn't seem to be getting better. I've had a much easier time improving my ankle strength wearing these. I have had them in my walking and hiking shoes for nearly 9 years now. Wearing SOLE footbeds provides comfort and stability. I highly recommend!

back home

back to wearing sole , my feet appreciate being back home

Walking on Clouds

I love sole! Before using these I experienced back pain everyday. Now I'm feeling like a spring chicken cause of sole.

No more plantar fasciitis pain

For years I have dealt with plantar fasciitis. More recently it had become debilitating and I gave up my daily walk. My job, however, required standing for long periods. I would find myself hobbling to my car after work. I tried many remedies and some helped relieve the pain but it wasn't until I discovered SOLE that my pain went away. Within a week, I knew that I had to get a pair for all my regular shoes. I even bought a pair of Sole flip flops that I could wear around the house so my feet would always have support. It has made a world of difference. Thank you SOLE!

George Yesalavich


back home

good to be back in Sole products, feet thank me

Sandra Ross


Insoles

I used to spend $400 on 1 pair of custom orthotics due to very high arches. My SOLE insoles are just as comfortable at a fraction of the price. Love them!

Tim Wyatt


Great Product

Great product that helps my son with proper foot posture.

Deborah Hansen


foot relief

I recently was prescribed orthotics, which are so expensive, but I have supplemented them in other pairs of shoes with SOLE insoles quite effectively!

Christian Ward


My experience says these are the best

I had been in the running and fitness industry and a runner when I came across SOLE. I've used custom-made orthotics and just about every over the counter brand due to several bouts of plantar fasciitis, until I came across SOLE. Highly rigid orthotics make feet weaker and diminish the runner's ability to use natural mechanics for push off and landing. What I wanted was support but not something akin to plywood underfoot. My running buddies used to call me plywood because I would wear supportive running shoes AND orthotics. CLOMP CLOMP here I come! So I began to experiment with several different brands of orthotics and since I was in the industry it wasn't cost prohibitive. I tried SuperFeet, Powerstep, SofSole, even Dr. Scholls. Despite the claims, they did not seem to mold to my foot and ranged from too soft to too rigid. In addition as a runner I was always talking to experts about biomechanics and stride. Just because of have flexible arches, I thought, doesn't mean I should not be able to find my most efficient stride (I was running up to 65 miles a week). I came across SOLE and with my usual skepticism, tried them. With different thicknesses of their base, the SOLE orthotics immediately offered support and comfort. I didn't feel as if I had a rigid board underfoot but a support that seemed to move with my shoe. I even moved to a neutral shoe (Saucony Ride among others). The SOLE orthotic provided the right amount of resistance to pronation without eliminating it entirely so I was still able to move efficiently. I loved how with use they molded to my foot (You don't have to heat them, they're moldable through use). I have several pairs I use in casual shoes (thin) and in work and hiking boots (thick) and rely on SOLE for support. They are durable; don't tell the company this but I used the thin in my casual/business shoes for three years (way beyond the life expectancy, I know and I've since replaced them). Not only are the products great, I like the company, its mission and their customer service. I like that they were founded in Canada and do business worldwide (including offices/warehouse in the US). If you think this review is a little gushing, my apologies. I have very few companies I truly love and support. Sole is one of the few.

love Sole products

I have multiple SOLE products. Flips to foot beds. They are best the most comfortable footwear out there. I've had a knee replaced and they helped me recover!!! Love

Charlene McCheyne


Can't go without SOLE

I can't live without my SOLES! In all my shoes - work shoes, dress shoes, boots. They are the only relief when it comes to plantar fasciitis issues. (The flip flops and sandals are my summer choice as well!)

Mike


Great insert for running

For years, I've previously used an expensive, custom made orthotic insert in my running shoes. The SOLE footbed was a much less expensive alternative, and fit easily into my Saucony Triumph ISO 5 shoes in place of the existing factory insert. The SOLE footbed does take a little time to break in and assume the correct shape, but overall they do an excellent job as running shoe inserts.

Ray Boucher


Amazing "Soles"!

SOLE makes the best insoles around!!! We have tried many different brands and found SOLE brand to be the best for our feet/shoes. All thee of us (including our 13yo son) love them. My wife and I used to always put our custom orthotics in our shoes but sometimes forget. Now we don't even need them. We put SOLE footbeds in all our shoes, so we have over 30 pairs of them so far ranging from Active to Lifestyle to Performance. It's also a great plus that this company is environmentally consciences, we very much look for companies that care for our environment! So what do we used these in - regular waking shoes, running shoes, hiking shoes, dress shoes, roller skates, cycling shoes - what ever shoes we have. They make a HUGE difference in comfort and also help not only our feet, but knees (we all have knee issues). Keep up the great work SOLE! These are the most awesome footbeds around!

Brian


SOLE insole

I walked around for years with chronic foot pain, I had bought medical orthotics and wanted to have foot comfort for all my shoes. I found sole footbeds, tried them, now I have them in all my shoes, even bought the flip flops and my feet feel great! No more doctor visits. I have recommended them to all my friends and family.

Joe Hardy


Terrific product

Been using SOLE brand insoles since 2008. I only trust them to protect my feet, legs, and back. Great product and highly recommended.

Warren Drell


Life changing

All my life I have had high arches and only just got diagnosed with the condition within the last year. I am 35, so as you can guess I have dealt with pain with walking/standing most of my life. SOLE's footbeds were recommend to me from a local running shoe store. The instant I tried them on, they corrected the alignment in my feet and it was instantly like walking on a cloud. Thanks again for your product. It has made a world of difference in my life!

Greg Kapustin


say goodbye to foot pain

Best insoles I have ever worn. I had horrible plantar fascia and shin splint pain and now it is completely gone. Thank you, SOLE!

Derek Tsui


All Star

Great addition to my active footwear! I transfer these insoles between my hiking and biking shoes. They provide a solid platform to stand on in rugged and uneven terrain. Just an all around great footbed to move from shoe to shoe.

CindyEW


Awesome footbeds

Moving to New York, I became a public transit commuter walking 4-5 miles every day, not always with the best kind of shoes. Unfortunately, I developed a foot neuroma and a podiatrist recommended custom orthotics. I found these foot beds and decided to try them first. After a very short time, my neuroma resolved and I now walk without pain. After a year of daily use, it is time to replace my original pair. Thank you for such an awesome product.

Riley Mullin


Would Recommend

I am on my third pair for military boots. They help support in a way other brands can't compare! Great for ALL terrains and all shoes/boots!

Great support for crossfit / workout shoes

I put these insoles in my shoes after having great success with the Signature EV Ultra insoles. These insoles can be trimmed down to fit in just about any shoe you would want to put them in, I specifically use them in my gym/workout shoes. They provide plenty of arch support for heavy lifting and just enough cushion to prevent pain but also give you a good feel for what your stepping or jumping on. These definitely won't turn an old pair of running shoes in to a new pair, nor will they allow you to run long distances in shoes that weren't designed for running but they allow me to run a mile here or there and do crossfit style workouts with no problems. I personally wouldn't log long miles running in these since the cushion is on the slim side compared to other options from Sole but others might find them adequate. 5 stars for crossfit use.

Two Big Toes Up

My foot surgeon required that I wear orthotic inserts after I had a midfoot ligament repaired. It's a nasty surgery and long recovery, and he recommended this brand. These are the first inserts I've ever worn and they feel great. I think I need something a bit heavier for right now but I'm keeping these for bumming around the house for sure.

Jahangir J.


SOLE changed my life!

I'm so happy with the purchase. SOLE SIMPLY changed my life !!! I spent hundreds of dollars on orthotics , none worked out for me and they were waste money. I was suffering from plantar fasciitis for couple of months, running and doing exercises were becoming difficult and painful. After purchasing your products, I'm hitting the gym and trails everyday and I don't feel any pain in my feet. Thank you for designing such an awesome product !

Matt


Great insert

Bought these primarily to put in any shoe that I'm working out in. Great for both running and hitting the gym / weights. Plenty of arch support to allow you to load up the bar for squats and presses and light / roomy enough to put in your running shoes and provide just enough cushion while also maintaining the arch support. Since the Softec Response is a little too thin for me for everyday wear I use the 3.2mm cushion Signature EV Ultra for my everyday shoes and also for winter activities since they provide more warmth.

Mike Little


Great Quality & Value

For many years now I have been buying your products. The products have always been of great quality and value. Keep up the good work!

Brian M Smith


best possible option

I bought these at the local Army Post Exchange here at Ft Benning, GA. After years of looking for quality inserts for my combat boots, I finally found these, and I will never go back to any other alternative. Now I can walk, run and march and my feet stay comfortable. Before, even with high-end orthotics, my feet would ache after a few hours and the pain would start to radiate up through my shins and knees. Since I started using this pair last year, I no longer have any of these problems

Cheryl Phillips


The BEST!!!

I have tried other insoles and none have been as comfortable as these! Don't waste your money on any other footbeds, these are the BEST on the market and their customer service is second to none!! Since wearing these my plantar foot pain and knee problems have gone away. I even bought a pair of soft house mocassins and put a pair of insoles in them to wear when working in the kitchen or doing housework and now I can work for hours with no pain on hard surfaces. I do not bake them in the oven because they feel better brand new and they will form to your foot after a week.

Debbie Gould


Ahhh Relief

These are the best inserts ever. I have tried several high end inserts and none compare. I can definitely notice the difference when I am not wearing them.

Jennifer Berndt


great for kids too

My 11yr old daughter had constant nagging feet and ankle pains/strains while playing competitive soccer. We tore out the existing soccer cleat liner and added these inserts with complete resolution of complaints. Now we will add them to all her shoes when possible.

Happy Feet

Acute Plantis Fascitis. After custom inserts, this worked better. Recommended by Podiatrist 3.2 mm for work. Also got the 1.6 mm for play. Most definately getting casual.

George Leone


Got me running again

I developed a nasty case of Plantar Fasciitis. I was hobbling around until a friend recommended SOLE insoles to me. I found a store nearby and was walking pain free in a few days and running in a couple of weeks. I have a pair for every shoe. I tried Custom made insoles and they were clumsy and painful. SOLE insoles felt natural and got me running again.

Tonya Boles


Works as well as custom made

I developed plantar fasciatiis a few years ago. I have a very high arch to my feet have hurt at some point all my life. I had custom made orthodics and worn those for a few years until they were falling apart. I bought Sole inserts while shopping for athletic shoes. I compared the design to the custom made ones and there was not much difference. I put them right in my shoes (I did not bother to heat and mold them) and they work just as well as the custom molds. I have purchased another pair and plan to order the lighter version for more casual shoes. I would say to try these first before going to the poditrist.

Doreen P.


So comfortable

I have had runner's knee for many years and my feet overpronate. Physio and strengthening my quads gave varying degrees of success. My sports physician suggested insoles and the athletic supplies store suggested these. I've now been using the insoles for a couple months and my knees feel so much better. I thought I had to give up running but I've increased my mileage to train for the half-marathon and my knees actually hurt less - not really sure if it's entirely due to the insoles but I know they're making a difference. I use them while exercising and also for everyday walking. I'm so happy I found these.

Tom Greer


Awesome

I have been a runner since High School & as my body aged my feet hurt constantly to the point my plantar fasciatis was always a pain. Met these guys at a trade Show & put the insoles in & now I can run 6 miles daily with no pain. Not bad for 42 years old. Thank you guys for taking the pain away so I can enjoy my daily runs again!

John Ramos


Thank you

Suffered from plantar fasciatis, 2 podiatrist,no remedy. Had Pt and the therapist recomended the product. What a difference. The price, the xperience and the comfort are worth every penny. My feet thank you. my podiatris's don't because they cannot charge me if I do not need to visit them.. great sole, great product.Thank you, thank you

Jeremy Frix


Happy Troops

I am a Physician Assitant deployed to Iraq right now and we have a stock of Sole inserts and they have been a Godsend. I have seen more plantar fasciitis over the past months than in the past 5 years of practice. I tried some insoles because I was having some foot pain and I fell in love. We have gone through over 100 pairs for our troops and we keep ordering more because word got out and they are helping everything from foot, ankle, knee, hip and even back pain. I can't say enough about these insoles. Every other PA and Doctor here also has a pair in their shoes after hearing me and my patients rave about them and they are all in love now too.

Ned Smith


Long Lasting cusion and high arch support.

In the last couple of years, foot and ankle pain have set me back. I'd been going back and forth to the podiatrist, getting new casts for custom orthodics, walking on the gel for a high tech casting for orthodics, etc. Everything always came back with the arch starting in the middle of my heel and giving me no arch support. I have size 14 feet and I think the shoe companies imagine people with bigger feet still have their arches in the same spot as little feet. Anyway, I got a new Podiatrist who is the favorite of the Northwest Ballet. He recommended Softec Ultras. They've made a huge difference. The arch started at the edge of my heal but it molded to me just fine. I didn't use the oven for fear the arch would fall a bit, I just let them mold to me over time, which they did nicely. They have the feeling of a brand new pair of Asics Gel Nimbus, but with a higher arch and more cushion. They last longer than the Asics standard 3 months. I've had these in my Asics for about 9 months and the Asics were about 3 months old when I put in the Softec Ultras. Which brings up the thought that the Asics don't wear out so fast, the Asic footbeds are what wears out. They really helped with my, sitting, standing, ankle-knee-hip board work, walking, and drumming endurance. Life is a lot better than I thought it would be by now.

Ben Andrews


Changed my life

I've tried and failed in the past to get into running due to knee, hip and pain caused by my over pronation. Having a pair of these into my various shoes, I'm feeling great, and on my way to running my first triathlon. I had various custom cast orthotics made for me during my teens, but these beet them hands down. A note on the customer service I have recieved: Excelent! They even replaced my first pair after I incinerated them (set oven to Celcius during an attack of stupidity).

Jamie


Try these first!

I have a knee injury. The Dr. sent me to PT for weeks but the pain wouldn't stop. I then spent a month staying off it, not working, not driving, but the pain continued. The Dr. then pulled these out of his shoe and told me to try them before going for a horrible injection or worse, surgery. It's been three days and the pain is fading. I don't know if this is the fix, but it's the only progress made in months. Try these BEFORE spending hundreds on PT, X-rays, and Dr. appointments. It could save you a ton.

Bill Drake


BETTER THAN PHYSICAL THERAPY?

During a terrible car accident, in which I should have died, my right ankle was crushed. After 2 weeks in a trauma unit, I went home with 5 pins and a plate holding my ankle together, while it healed in a cast. I came out of the cast 2 months later, on my way to an amazing miraculous recovery. My foot survived, but is now pronated to the inside. (at least I have it. Doctors thought I would lose it) I went to a podiatrist during physical therapy and he suggested I try Sole Inserts before resorting to $500 custom orthotics. After wearing these inserts for 2 weeks, I walk without a limp. These are amazing and have given me new hope for a relatively normal life!! Thank you

Judy Shiota


Love Them

I was having so much problem with my feet and a friend of mind told me about this store in Walnut Creek. She said to over there and see Tim the owner of the store and he will fix me right up with shoes and insole. So that is what i did. I have been so happy with my insole that i just order a new pair! will always wear them!

Michael Cleveland


I like 'em!

I bought these yesterday as I live in Europe and walk a lot. Add to that I am a teacher and often carry a lot of books with me going from one place to another. Often, at the end of the day, my left foot is killing me. After only one day, I can seemingly tell the difference already. It's almost the end of the day and I have no pain. If I can figure out a way to get them, I'm going to try the Sport version in my two pair of cycling shoes and then possibly my running shoes as well.

Sean Doyle


Excellent Product

I have had problems with my high arches for many years now, with very tired feet after running and walking in general. Having had custom made orthotics over the years and not really addressing my problem I was somewhat sceptical trying the Softec Regular, but I was very impressed after following the instructions etc, I am now feeling the overall benefit and they have improved my gait as noticed when I train. I will definetely purchase another pair shortly

Joy Salberg


Painfree

I have been running for over 15 years and just recently been diagnosed with plantar Faciitis. I started running in Soles mediums and now run pain free and was able to train and complete a marathon. Won't ever run without them again. Great product

PJ


Awesome!!

I am a Naval Flight Officer, and bought these inserts to put in my flight boots. By far one of the betrter footwear decisions I've ever made. The inserts got me through a deployment to Afghanistan and are about to go for a second. The inserts made my boots infinitely more comfortable and have virtually eliminated my foot and knee pain from walking on unfinished surfaces. I just got another pair of flight boots and plan on getting another pair of inserts to go in them.

bart yeske


Heaven for my feet

I have used these for the last two years and can say i never even knew who made them. I bought them with a pair of casual shoes from a very popular boot company. Let me tell you from a guy who had crushed his foot and has horrible feet problems, that these are better than all four orthotics that I payed hundreds for. I thank you for a wonderful product that make my feet feel like never before!

Wilfreo Cuevas


Awesome

Hi, I have $500 custom orthotics amd they are not as comfortable as these insoles. I am really happy with the comfort I feel. I wish I knew about these awesome insoles before I purchased the custom made ones. I am ordering some extras, worth every penny.

Rick VanDerWegen


Awesome

I was having alot of pain in the arch of my foot for 7 or 8 months. I went to the docter and I was told that I had flat feet and was suffering from Plantar Fasciitis. He wanted me to get prescription ortho's. After being looked at by the Physical Therapist he recommened that I give the Sole Softec Regulars a try. I was amazed at the relief that this product has given me. I ordered another pair along with a pair of your plantinum sandles. Awesome product.

Christine Miller


they feel great

I bought a pair of Softec Regulars for my husband 2/10/09. He loves them. As a soccer coach who is on his feet a lot, he can tell the difference with these new inserts. In fact, we have just ordered 2 more pairs.
