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.

Great Everyday Shoe

I have been a big fan of SOLE flips for years and was excited to try out the RECORK product. I purchased the black loafer in mens 13. Generally, shoes in size 13 look like water skis and some more so than others. These shoes were the complete opposite. My feet looked much smaller and I was quite surprised that they were a terrific fit and provided a significant amount of wiggle room in the toes. The arch support is similar to the flips and is beginning to form to the specifics of my foot arch. This has been my experience with all the SOLE products. They continue to provide excellent arch support during this break-in process. As for the overall look of the shoe beyond making my foot seem a reasonable size, they are simple and handsome with echos, for those of a certain vintage, of the 70's Earth Shoes! They have become my go-to shoe for everyday and can easily work in a dressier situation. The leather is soft and supple and it is comfortable. One area for improvement would be to modify the sole to provide a bit better traction in wet and other slick situations.

Best thing happening to my feet!!!!

These soles have made a 100 % difference in my feet. I can be on my feet 10x longer than I could before with no foot pain!! They are phenomenal!!!

Christine Rutledge


So happy!!!

This is the absolute best little boot ever! I have struggled for years with foot, knee, hip issues unless I wore my running shoes. Then I found SOLE! These cute little boots are heaven to my feet! Comfortable, easy to put on (zipper at the back) and look super with leggings, tights etc!

So far so good

I am active runner who has been dealing with plantar fasciitis in the last year, and I was searching for a good footbed that would support my foot. Its been 2 months now of regular use and the fit seems great. I use the insoles in my running shoes and in my regular shoes with no problem. Of course, these won't fully cure your plantar fasciitis by themselves! I am doing daily stretches and exercises, but they are a great tool to have in your toolbox. ;) In these last 2 months I also tried the medium version but found out they dont fit in most of my shoes. These ones are thinner but still very confortable.

Morton's Neuroma & Plantar Fasciiitis Relief

Immediate relief for my Morton's Neuroma on my right foot. Excellent support for the plantar fasciitis on my left foot. I couldn't thank enough. Looking forward to try out other models :-)

Pain relief

I have Plantar Fasciitis on my left heel/ foot recently, I experienced sharp heel pain & unbearable foot pain during the day. Recently, I chanced upon the SOLE Catalina Sport Flips & I bought them. Wearing these really made me feel the difference ever since.

and I used to hate Flip Flops...

I've never worn flip flops because the toe post irritates and hurts so I always searched for sandals. I have high arches and PF, so I always search for supportive sandals, and hopefully find some that are still cute. I use SOLE footbeds for my causal shoes, and thought...what the heck? There was a good sale, the SOLE insoles have been great in the past, so why not try the Del Mar Flips and I can return them if they hurt too much right? They arrived quickly, I put them on and wore them for an hour or so. The toe post wasn't irritating and the foot bed felt comfortable and supportive from the beginning, I've worn them more, including all day shopping excursions and haven't had any issues. As the footbed continues to mold to my foot shape, they will probably become one of the most comfortable shoes I'll own. I won't trust other flip flops, but I'm glad I tried these. Supportive, cushion, and all day comfort for me.

perfection

I wanted a flip to wear as I hate to go barefoot and wanted something cool and comfortable for the summer. The Beach Flip was perfect as it added support to my foot arch and is comfortable too! I have used several of the SOLE shoe inserts which have helped resolve some of my foot arch problems. Thus, I was confident that SOLE was the product that I could trust for a flip that would be a benefit to my feet and meet my want/need for a nice flip.

Curtis Pauls


Great service!!!!

So, I was pretty excited to get these new flips after wearing out a pair that lasted me almost five years. Unfortunately for me, I have a bone on my foot that didn't take kindly to the rubber strap on these. (My previous flips were a leather/fabric strap.) Sad, because the cork footbeds were incredibly comfortable! Well, after getting in touch with the customer service people I am happy to say I've ordered something that will likely be better for me, and the service I got from Tim was exceptional! I would hands down, heartily recommend buying from this company! My new flips are on their way and I anticipate major summer vibes and good times are coming my way too! Thanks again SOLE for exceptional customer service and pursuing sustainable manufacturing.

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!

Michael Culhane


THE best flip flops

I have issues with my feet due to a genetic disease so it's difficult to find a pair of flips that not only fit my feet but also support them. Living in the desert and being a boater my SOLEs are worn daily and for all day long. I first started wearing them years ago when had flat foot issues and have worn them since. I've tried many other expensive brands but keep coming back to SOLE!

Michelle Petker-Lawrie


Love!!!!

After wearing inexpensive flip flops for many years, my Chiropodist recommended I search the SOLE website after battling for the last couple years with achilles tendonitis and side foot pain. I have a flat foot and have battled with shin splints as well for years. I visited your website and purchased 2 pairs of flip flops - Baja and Laguna. I loved them both...especially the Laguna pair. I no longer have the pain on the side of my foot or my achilles pain now that I wear these daily. It provides the support I need and gives me the arch in my foot that I have needed all this time. In fact I just recently purchased another 2 pairs of your sport flip flops and love them as well. In fact, I wear them everywhere I go now. I am a highly satisfied customer and have promoted this product to friends as well. :) I will continue to search the site for upcoming new products.

Gail


So Comfortable!!

These are super comfortable. I especially love how you can adjust the straps to get a custom fit. I had surgery on my toe and still had a little swelling on the top of my foot. With the adjustable straps I'm able to wear these sandals without any issues. These are also great support for my flat feet. I am on my feet a lot so I need shoes with tons of support. Thanks SOLE for taking care of all the sore feet in the world!!!

Wendy


love

I just purchased my second pair of woman's Catalina Sports Flips. They are comfortable with great heel support. They fit my foot well and are perfect for me. I can walk well and for lengthy periods of time. I have these in black and turquoise and the color holds up well. I suffer from bad arthritis in my spine and have to be particular about what I wear on my feet and these enable me to be on my feet much longer than any other shoes I own.

Diana Sullivan


Love Love my SOLE Sandals

I absolutely love my SOLE products. I have Plantar Fasciitis and have a hard time finding any shoes other than custom orthotics that won't make my foot hurt. My SOLE sandals are so comfortable and I have no pain while I wear them and they last year after year.

Melissa Daugherty


My favorite flip flops!

I have high arches and typically can not wear flip flops for long. The SOLE Costa flips have enough arch support that I can wear them all day without foot pain. Love them!

Shawn Stanyar


Life Saver

As a longtime customer, I purchased 2 pairs of flips this time as my well worn ones I've had for 8-10 years are relegated to the backyard patio and pool. The Sport Flips (as usual) are extremely comfortable to wear right out of the package, and can be worn all day. The Casual Cork flips are a bit uncomfortable as my low arch tends to dig into the hard cork with little give, but I'm sure this is only temporary as they break-in. On a positive note I'm sure they will keep their shape a bit longer and support my foot better...plus they look amazing. Unrelated to this recent purchase, I also use a variety of the footbeds, and although I'm not an avid runner, I'm on my feet all day and could not imagine how much pain and fatigue I'd be in without using SOLE products.

Melissa


Little met pad, big upgrade

At this point I have many many pairs of SOLE flips flops and love the support, especially because of the met pad. I have a few pairs of insoles and they are all awesome but theres just something extra special about that little met pad!! I have some laxity issues and I truly feel like that met pad keeps my foot extra open but stable. My toes never feel bunched up or squished.

Jackie


Only flip flops I'll wear!

I have skinny, long feet with high arches and finding a comfortable flip flop that disn't hurt my feet was impossible, until SOLE started making flip flops. I have been using the insole inserts for years, but I had been unable to enjoy wearing flip flops. I love my SOLE Casual Flips so much I bought a pair for everyone in my family. They all love them, from my flat footed stepfather to my mom with high arches, to my wide footed husband. My only wish is that they would make them in childrens sizes. I have been buying them for a while and wear them all summer and most of the spring and fall. With my constant use most of them have lasted at least two years.

Randy Froese


My SOLE Flips!

I'm a 56 year old male. 6'-6" weighing 250 lbs. I bought two pairs of Sport Flips in different colors and a pair of Beach Flips. I love them all! They provide great support for my feet. I like to go for walks on hot summer nights and my feet are no longer tired after walks! Morning foot pain is reduced substantially (or pretty much GONE) after having walked the night before. That's new for me. I also love my Sport Flips for cycling on hot days. I love my Beach Flips for use at the beach, both in and out of the water. They provide protection for my feet from the rocks and quickly float to the surface when I kick them off. To top it off, I need size 14 which SOLE has. Can't find them just anywhere! I am so thankful for my new flips!!! I use one of the pairs in my apartment as recommended by my certified Pedorthist. I design for a living in a manufacturing facility and am a details person. I always appreciate good design in anything. Please thank your designers for their great work on these flips! Thank you SOLE! You make great products and have a great website! P.S. - Love the free shipping over $100!! P.P.S. - Amazing 90 day footbed guarantee allowing you to return for any reason if not satisfied (which I will not be doing)!!!!!

Healthy Solution

I have been using SOLE inserts for many years and recommend them to anyone I know or meet who is having foot or knee issues. I purchased the thins for a new pair of low hikers that do not have the room for a midweight. The reason I call these a healthy solution as I have a knee that used to give me a lot of pain when I was hiking, jogging or walking. A friend recommended trying the SOLE insert, problem solved. Since that first pair of inserts, I now use the SOLE insert in all my footwear and also find the SOLE sandals equally effective.

Yako


Best investment

My friend recommended me SOLE insoles after I spent lots of money with my podiatrist doctor . First days were a little painful but after a week no more foot pain . I was little scared about cork material but my insoles still good after 1 year used .

Ruthie Hertter


No more pain!!!

After wearing SOLE Active Thick my foot pain is nonexistent. I have a pair on all my shoes and now I can't live without my SOLEs.

Julia


The Best!

These insoles are totally worth every penny! They took care of my foot pain! So very thankful that I found this company.

I could walk again

I was running on the beach playing frisbee when all of a sudden I couldn't walk on my left foot and had excruciating pain. I had to hobble around on my tippy toes. After going to the Orthopedic, he recommended that the first thing I should do is get SOLE inserts made for plantar fasciitis. I went online to look and there were so many options, I was a bit confused. I called Sasha on the service desk and she quickly advised me on the proper insert. I told her I would be leaving town before I would receive them. She quickly guided me to a local dealer, where I went right down and picked up a couple of pairs. Medium and Thin. Let me tell you, I put them in my sport shoe and it was like a miracle, I could walk on my whole foot again with most of my pain was gone instantly. Since I spend most of my time in flip flops I had to get them too. They offer a lot of support and feel great. Thanks for being there for me. Your products made a real difference in my life.

Alan Morhun


Adjustable slip on

SOLE was recommended by my foot doctor and they are great for my plantar fasciitis. The new adjustable slide is fantastic, as I can now adjust it for bare feet, or if I need to wear socks. I would highly recommend this product.

Phyllis Kosakowski


Great Flip Flops

I have always worn the Sport flip flops and can't be without them but thought I'd give these a try. The foot bed is a little different but they still offer great support. The mesh strap dresses them up a little bit and they are light as a feather. You really can't go wrong!

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!

Lori Cooper


Great Flip-Flop!

When I first received these, they were very, very tight. I could barely get my foot into them and the strap was super tight on the top of my foot. After wearing them for a few days, they fit perfectly now and I love them! Super comfortable with great arch support for my plantar fasciitis.

Jacob


Plantar fasciitis

I had a flare up of plantar fasciitis on my right foot that wouldn't go away regardless of how much I stretched. I tried countless insoles from other brands (some had soft gels and did not provide enough rigid support, others with carbon inserts were too rigid and didn't provide flexibility for my active livestyle) until trying these Sport Medium insoles. After heat molding them in the oven and placing it in my running shoes, I've been able to keep flare ups away. I ended up buying a set for my casual shoes and oxfords I use at work. They've elevated the level of comfort across the board on all my shoes. I'm able to walk and hike for several miles again. I've had them for over a year now, and it's made me curious as to what their lifespan is.

Rob


Finally, a shoe insert that works!

Tried numerous shoe inserts to resolve my foot pain. Found Sole shoe inserts during a Google search. Researched the product and ordered one pair. Sole insert worked for me and helped rid my foot pain. I ordered 3 more pairs for my different shoes. When my daughters had foot pain issues from soccer I ordered both girls Sole inserts. Both girls are pain free. I ended up ordering the Sole slip on sandals and strap on sandals for days I don't want to wear socks but still have my arch and ankle support. No issues with the Sole inserts to date. Have been using them for many years. I don't heat my inserts I just put them into my shoe and over a short period of time they form to my foot.

Great Product

Great product that helps my son with proper foot posture.

I have a BUNCH of Sole and Love Them All

I started wearing and using SOLE products in 2011. My first purchases were insoles and a pair of Sport Flips, then every year or so I purchase some more insoles. I have also purchased a pair of Exhale shoes that I still wear to this date. I turned my wife on to SOLE a few years back and she wore out a pair of the Cork Flips, she also wears the insoles. So here's the deal. I have extreme over pronation of one foot. SOLE products allowed me to survive 4 years without surgery. I had corrective surgery, terrible, terrible surgery for PTTD. It was brutal. My foot is somewhat better but still painful. SOLE products continue to provide the support that I need to continue living an active life. I would not be without my SOLE footwear or insoles. As I write this I have a pair of Sport Slips from 2013 (that are just about wore out) that I am wearing, and in a bit when I put my hiking boots on my feet will sit on some SOLES. Really, if you want great support and comfort, buy some SOLE products. I am a believer, my wife is a believer, and anyone that asks us gets a strong testimonial from us.

Lovin' my Lagunas

I've tried several styles of SOLE flips including the Beach, Casual and Sport. The Laguna's are by far my fave!!!! They are super comfy, with all the same arch support as the other great SOLE products. The fabric is soft with elastic like stretch so they fit well. The cork is durable. It feels softer than the other styles I've tried, almost springy. It moves with my foot. These are for sure my new go to SOLE flips!

Womens Sport Flips

Have had three pairs of womens Sport Flips - one pair was worn out, one got ate by a labradoodle puppy and I am still wearing the third. I wear these constantly due to a major foot injury. No pain and mobility! Recommend them to anyone with foot/feet issues.

Tracy Broder


Excellent

Love these flip flops. Started buying the insoles due to foot pain and I now have very happy feet. Super awesome that you can get these great flip flops for summer. They really help as I have a very high arch and no other flip flop or insole would work. Highly recommend!!!!

Victoria


excellent products

Hi all. Over the last 2 years I have purchased the men's Cork Flips. I have a size 12 ladies foot so very hard to find a sassy functional flip flop. My prayers answered. I will continue to purchase these through out my years. I had one pair where the cork bed split. I emailed SOLE and they sent me a replacement pair no questions asked. That is customer service. I work in Healthcare and am very aware that you have to look after your feet. I tell everyone I know about this company. Cheers to an excellent product.

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!

Lorraine MacDonald


Amazing

I was referred to your product by my pedorthic clinic (Katie Whalen) where I was fitted with insoles for my plantar fasciitis. I have now ordered 3 pair of these flips and I love them !!!! I have a narrow foot but they wrap and hold my feet in place very comfortably. I wear a pair around the house as a slipper for the summer ( would you ever consider making a slipper)? I would definitely buy them!

Jason Sanders


The Absolute Best

These flip flops are just awesome for someone with foot problems (and to help prevent problems in people who don't already have foot problems). The arch support and heel fit the contours of the foot perfectly; and the knit strap is very comfortable on the top of the foot. I've tried other flip flops that were supposedly made to fit the foot, but these are by far the absolute best and most comfortable.

Tony Luciani


Fitting Wide Toe Boxes

Needing a wide toe-box shoe for hiking 1000 km on the Camino Santiago in Spain, I couldn't afford custom orthotics, so I searched for the best alternative insole out there. I settled on the heat-moldable SOLE Active Wide Thick and was so wonderfully satisfied that I bought a 2nd pair for training for the long walk. Foot fatigue went away and the extra cushioning helped the trail runners. I had plunge through gravel paths and carry me over long stretches of hot, hard asphalt. My knees were happy again. If you have any of the Altra brand or other wide toe-box shoes, please consider SOLE Active Wide for your next adventure, or even for your workplace. I tried so many other brands without success. Mold these to your own feet. You won't regret it. I don't.

Fred Rossomando


Excellent!

These inserts are terrific! They fit perfectly and they have reduced my foot pain for almost 1 year now. They were endorsed by my physical rehab person.

Meghan


Extreme Comfort

I ordered the Lifestyle Medium to put into my casual sneakers that lack comfort and support. The SOLE inserts fit perfectly into my sneakers and allowed me to walk around all day without having the usual knee and foot pain I normally would have.

Amanda


Love them!

I've had foot surgery on both my feet and these are the only flip flops I can wear. I wear them year round :-)

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.

Diana


Great

Love these, felt strange at first but felt great in no time. Will definitely get another pair, probably will try the cork ones. Seem to fit my foot to a tee. No pain like in flat flip flops.

Terry Heinrich


Nice Arch Fit

I recently purchased the Men's Sport Flips. I like the arch support the sandal gives. The foot bed is comfortable and soft but firm where it needs to be. The length of the shoe fits perfectly. I find it is a tight fit around the strap area. I'm thinking the strap will stretch a little to make this more comfortable and less tight fitting. Otherwise, I have no complaints with my purchase.....Thank you in advance...Terry H.

Rick Smith


Great Sandals

This my third pair of Sole cork flips and they are pretty much my go to footwear for the summer. Previously i had purchased them at MEC, but this time went to the source. Delivery was fast and the transaction was painless. I love these sandals because of the fit. I have size 12 feet, and find that a lot of flip flop type sandals just don't stay on my feet. These ones always do, and the foot bed is incredibly comfortable, molding to your foot shape and providing support. 10/10 Would purchase again.

Smith William C


A New Level of Comfort

These were recommended to me by a Podiatrist, and in fact I bought my first pair from him. Dr. Costanza said if these don't work, you're going to need orthotic inserts. Working at the time in health care managing a medical laboratory often alone, I spent many hours on my feet running across concrete floors with little to no support. I bought shoes and or boots with thick padded layers between my feet for those surfaces but it wasn't until I tried SOLE that I noticed a significant difference. Over the years I have been using SOLE Active Thick inserts, I've noticed that for me, a overweight middle age man, changing the inserts out about every 2 months give me the highest level of comfort. I break mine in the natural way, allowing my feet to mold into the inserts over time. I've tried a lot of different inserts and I can tell you that none, 0, zero, and I mean nobody else even comes close to the level of comfort in SOLE. Recommended by professionals and by me a retired medical professional, there is no better support for your foot than SOLE.

Sue Rumi


Can't take them off!

These Del Mar Sport flips are super comfy. I have been wearing SOLE flip flops for 4 years now and they are my "go to" footwear. I use them as slippers inside the house and wear them most days outside. I have walked around sightseeing all day in them and had no issues with sore feet or blisters. This is my 7th pair of SOLES and I will continue to buy them as my foot problems have disappeared since I began wearing them. Thanks for saving my feet SOLE!

Beth Campbell


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

Donna Beattie


Long time fan

I've been wearing your SOLE shoes for about 10 years and have at least a dozen pairs. I have unbearable foot pain from metatarsalgia and only a metatarsal arch relieves it. Many thanks!

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.

Joseph Castronovo


Orthotics

Hands down SOLE makes the best inserts. I have been using them for years. In my late 20s I had horrible foot pain. I went to doctors and physical therapy but nothing helped until one of the physical therapist recommended to try these inserts. I tried them out and within a couple of weeks the planter fasciitis was gone and the pain was gone. I have been wearing them in every pair of shoes and sneakers since.

Jody


Fabulous customer support!

LOVE these shoes! I'd had some foot trouble in the past and was looking for some orthotic shoes. I couldn't find any that were half decent looking but then I found these. Stylish, supportive and durable! Also I'd like to give a shout out for the customer service (Sasha) on this site. It was amazing. They stand behind their product and want their customers to be satisfied. I did have some issues with a different style sandal but the issue was rectified to my complete satisfaction. Thank you!

Lana


Great foot beds / insoles

It's been almost 3 years since I initially bought SOLE footwear and footbeds. I had painful plantar fasciitis and was referred to this company by a relative. Although I did not experience immediate results, over time between SOLE and good footwear, my foot pain has gone away. I definitely recommend SOLE and especially the footbeds. Thanks SOLE!!!

Sue


Super comfortable

Just received my new Costa flips. The strap is super comfortable and my foot issue has resolved itself after only 2 days of wear. These are my 6th pair of Sole flip flops and I won't live without them. I use them as slippers inside the house and outside whenever there is no snow on the ground. Highly recommend...and have to many friends.

These sandals are money!

Loving my new flips. The knit strap looks and feels great, and I feel awesome knowing that I am standing on recycled wine corks. On top of that, it's really nice to have a sandal that has some support and isn't flat under foot too. I can already feel them helping my plantar fasciitis. Would highly recommend.

amy havranek


Highly Recommend

I just wanted to share my amazing experience w/ sole insoles. I have had plantar fasciitis for 10 yrs. My old podiatrist retired 5 years ago. Each year I keep getting custom made orthos and each year they are made wrong. I have been suffering and relying on steroids. My feet got worse and then I developed achilles tendonitis & extensor tendonitis. Even my gastrocnemius muscle started to spasm. I went back to another foot dr & and did 3 months of PT and the new custom made ones hurt even more. I could barely stand in the shower or make it through the grocery store. Then I bought SOLE, it was instant heaven. I know have 3 pairs. I started 2 weeks ago but I am 98% percent pain free while wearing them. I'm sure it will take more time to fully recover. I am in love with SOLE and cannot live without them. THANK YOU

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!

Bradford Jackson


Saved my feet

I've been using various Sole footbeds for several years and can say that I've found nothing better. I have high arches and work construction, sometimes on my feet for most of a 12 hour, or longer, shift and have developed plantar fasciitis as a result. I've tried other brands with varying results but, Sole footbeds are the ones that have made a huge difference, so much so that my feet rarely bother me anymore. The thing I like about them is that they are heat moldable. Because my arches are so high and longer than normal, I actually gently heat my new Soles with a heat gun and mold more arch into them than they come with. Doing so I can slightly over-mold them and they conform to the exact shape of my foot after wearing them for a few days. Without doing that It would mean costly custom orthotics. My youngest son was cursed with the same feet as mine and we both use Sole. Thanks for the excellent product.

James LaCroix


Lasted FOREVER! Awesome value!

Purchased through my foot doctor because of plantar fasciitis, I questioned spending so much for "flip flops." After wearing them for a few days, I knew they would help my feet. But after EIGHT YEARS of almost daily wear, my Sole cork slides finally suffered a broken thong, clearly illustrating the value of Sole footwear! Totally getting way more than your money's worth!

Sandra


Sandals

I've been wearing these for a few days now and absolutely LOVE them. They're so comfortable, the midsole molds to your foot. I have the black pair and I'm thinking I need some more in different colors!!! Wonderful that the footbed is made from 100% recycled cork. Great product.

Rachel


LOVE MY NEW RECYCLED CORK FLIPS!

Just got back from a week in Mexico with my new flips and I have to say I love them! Wore them everywhere I went. They immediately took away the pain from the plantar fasciitis in my right foot caused from other flat sandals. I am really digging the new sleek look too. And the recycled cork story is so cool! I'll drink to that. Love love love. Highly recommend.

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.

Just like my 400 dollar orthotics

I have PF bought so many orthodics and none helped. Went to foot surgeon and got custom orthodics. These sole insoles looked just like my 400 dollars ones so i tried them. They feel the same and my foot pain is under control.

best ever!

I wear these sandals year round. I am a vendor at the Minnesota State Fair and no other shoe gives me 12 hour a day, 12 day straight comfort like these...they are absolutely amazing! I sell skin care for the feet and my heels can take a beating in regular sandals...these do not dry your feet out and along with my skin cream my feet always look great! Cannot say enough about them...oh and did I mention my feet never hurt after a long day on concrete...you know how trade shows can be. My foot Doc friend suggested these to me and I've never gone back. Once I needed some sandals for Hawaii and needed them on the spot...went to Nordstroms and purchased the $80. a pair of the Hawaiian brand they were selling. They were black on black. Not only do they not give the support they suggested they did but the black sole would stain my heels...really bad! And to have spent $80 for them? Thank you Sole for making an incredible product. I take pride in my products and have been selling them for over 25 years so I really appreciate great quality and a product that says what it does and does it! Take good care, Judy Reber Owner Merino Skin Care USA & The Crack Blaster!

Life Changing

I suffer from foot pain and these are the only orthotics or inserts that have ever helped. Without them I could not do my job which requires many hours hiking with a full back pack. It is a miracle to be mostly pain free! Worth every single penny.

Kathleen


Very happy with this purchase!

Received these sandals this afternoon...amazing speedy delivery service! I had tried the flip-flop but find that I prefer the freedom of walking with sandals that have straps which then make my stride more comfortable and natural. The flip-flop was a little big for me in the size 6, however size 6 in the Navigate fit perfectly. I opened the box right away and eagerly put these Navigate sandals on and am very, very pleased! They feel great! Looking forward to long term use and the moulding of the foot-bed that will take place. Thank you Sole for great customer service!

Foot pain

I have been wearing SOLE insoles, blister socks, and flips for years. Navigate sandals are lightweight and super comfortable I can stay on my feet all day. The best products for my feet and awesome customer service! Thank you SOLE

Angela


Painless!

I bought a pair of the SOLE Sport Slides after foot surgery to use as an indoor shoe following a suggestion from my podiatrist. I loved them! After another bunion surgery, I developed a neuroma. In my SOLE shoes, I didn't have the burning. In my runners with custom orthotics, I did. I went to find another pair of SOLE shoes for outdoor use. I came across these sandals and they have not disappointed me! I am a teacher so am on my feet a lot. I have worn these all day at work and have not had any episodes! I am so happy with these shoes.

HAPPY FEET - Best Sandals for Foot/Back

BEST SANDALS EVER! SERIOUSLY! I have had two foot surgeries which caused me back pain due to posture instabilities so wearing supportive shoes/sandals is VERY important to me. These sandals were recommended and now these sandals go everywhere with me! They offer the perfect amount of support and help to ensure proper alignment of your foot and back. You can wear them comfortably for hours and hours of walking. Will tell anyone who has back or foot issues who will listen to me how great they are! The customer care team is lovely, super responsive and stand behind their products. Can't recommend enough how great these sandals are. So happy I was able to find them. You won't regret one bit purchasing them.

I have MULTIPLE Pairs!

I wanted to review after I had at least a year of wear under my belt. I was frustrated with the plethora of cheap and pseudo-orthotic plastic-rubber products on the market. I have Psoriatic Arthritis that has impacted my feet. I am in my mid 40's now and my conditions is well-controlled. After a recommendation from a friend, I tried SOLE Sport Flips 3 years ago. I was immediately turned on! The features that have resonated the most with me are the metatarsal footpad, deep heel cup, machine washability and durability. I now have 2 pairs of Sport Flips and 1 Pair of Sport Slides. There is 1 pair in my gym bag for the gym and Taekwondo. Perfect for the beach... ANYWHERE. The deep heel cup prevents the foot from sliding all over the place, as they would in the lesser-quality products. After a few weeks of getting the world all over them, I toss them into the washer and they come out just as though I had opened the box from the mail. I dare say they are more comfortable than the $400 custom orthotics I had prepared for me by a podiatrist. I travel for work and I ALWAYS have a pair of SOLES with me. My wife is a believer as well. My son refers to me as the flip flop wearing parent. I'll take that.

Sole for me

Years ago I bought Sole's Exhale shoes. I use 'em as slippers mostly, every day, year-round. I got 2 back-up pairs after the first. Still wearing the first. The top of the fold-down heel is a bit worn, but the footbed and structure are still 100%!! When I feel like it, I wear one of the newer pairs out and about, very versatile look. I have a prescription orthotic footbeds to protect my high arches from strain. When I cross over from my mouldable Sole Thin Casual footbed in my favorite shoes to the pair with the custom made bed, I recognize I'll never pay the price for a custum make again. My mouldable Sole footbeds fit better, are thinner and save me a ton of coin. After moulding in the oven and a day of wear, there isn't a spot that hasn't confirmed to my foot and it really feels like my shoe is just a perfect match and fit. Awesome products. Love your Sole!!

Fantastic quality - useable in all sorts of boots/shoes

I needed an insole with great support and enough warmth to climb up 14,000ft to the top of Mount Rainier. In comparing to other products (Superfeet included) I could tell these were made for durability and would provide greater support. The Superfeet also did not match up with my arch and were very painful. These were fantastic, molded to my foot a little bit and still 2.5 years later are still providing me support in my casual everyday shoes (so yes, they do work in medium volume shoes!). If you need extreme warmth, you might want the insulated products from SOLE. I was standing on a glacier for 3 days so I could tell they soles were getting a little cool from my frozen plastic mountaineering boot, but overall, these are fantastic for skiing, moderately cold mountaineering and anything else (such as everyday wear). They will last you years and years of continued abuse.

Best arch support ever

I found these from a review on Amazon about my normal Orthaheel shoes. The reviewer felt these were much better, which sounded hard to believe to me. So I was shocked when I tried these on to learn that they ARE better than any shoe I've ever tried. (A lot!) these are better than orthaheel because not only do they have perfect arch support but they allow for that natural place under the toes that also needs support, the heel bed is deep enough to support proper ankle position also. An old ankle injury and severe plantar fasciitis is getting amazing relief since wearing these shoes. I love them and I bought 4 (don't judge me ;) foot pain relief is no joke!) I have 1 pair for outside shoes, 1 pair for inside shoes (we don't wear outside shoes in the house) and an extra backup for each in case these get discontinued like happens sometimes. Brilliant design!

Linn


Great shoes!

My podiatrist recommended these shoes (I have PTTD that I'm treating along with tailor's bunions) and they are wonderful. I am thankful for your customer service rep's recommendation to go up a size as well. I am an 8 and she suggested a size 9, and the fit is perfect. The sole is wide enough to accommodate my entire foot, while other brands' soles are too narrow for my flat feet. The straps are comfortable, and do not bother my bunions. Thank you so much for these! I feel like they were made for me.

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.

Geoffrey Iles


Great plantar faciitis relief:

I have planter faciitis and have used inserts with the jelly soft spot under the heel coupled with an arch support but they were not nearly aggressive enough. I looked at "Your soles" insert and liked the aggressive arch, tried them and immediately felt relief from the pain even though they lack the jell at the heel. My plantar faciitis improves each day I wear them. My only fear is that they may be accommodating my foot too well lessening the plantar fascia relief. Should I have done the oven treatment only, to preserve their original shape? I am seriously thinking of purchasing the sandals, just wish they had a model with more toe protection!

John Russell


Just the best

I have extremely flat feet and pronation, which causes foot pain, knee pain and especially lower back pain. I found SOLE about 5 years ago and have remained a loyal customer because I DON'T LIVE IN PAIN ANYMORE! I simply will not put shoes on my feet without a pair of these footbeds in them. Everything I own - dressy wingtips, casual boat shoes, sneakers, golf shoes, hiking boots, winter boots - all have a pair of SOLEs in them! I even bought their flip flops, which have been a summer time Godsend.

Victoria


Loves the Lofts

I can't go anywhere without these boots! The most comfortable thing I own. At first they feel tight but after an hour or two they begin to break in and shape to your foot. Now I look at the other boots in my closet as bookends...

Charlene


Great FlipFlop

I love these sandals. I have four pairs in different colors. They are a little tight at first but because the sole molds to your foot, they soon fit just right. I can wear them all day comfortably and go for walks in them.

Ron


Softec Ultra

I have been fighting back pain since I broke my back a year ago April. A month ago I came down with plantar fascia strain which I have had 4 times in the last 10 years. The last two weeks I could hardly walk without excruciating pain. A week ago I had an appointment with my dermatologist and the subject of plantar fascia strain came up and he told me about your site. He tried to explain what the insole was and suddenly he took off his shoe and handed me one. How many doctors today would do that? I ordered a pair of your mens softec ultra and they arrived in 2 days. I tore out the insole of a pair of running shoes and they fit perfectly. I tried on the shoes and I have not had one bit of pain from my plantar fascia strain. Before I was wearing a gel cup for the heel given to me by an orthopaedic foot surgeon. Your product is every thing it claims, I have recommended your products to friends and my on call nurse.

nadine


Awesome!

Thin Sport Footbeds solved my foot pain and I didn't need to get orthotics. I don't even notice them in my sneakers and it's the first time ever my arches feel fully supported.

manny


Foot pains

I have normal arches in both feet but I developed bilateral plantar fasciitis in late 2012 due to the use of a pair of work shoes which did not flex in the metatarsophalangeal area. I decided to give these SOLE Softec Ultra Footbeds a try. I felt some pain relief on the third day. Pains were completely relieved after 3 months of use. I now use these insoles in my work shoes, tennis shoes and running shoes. I do not go out without them even after I have been pain free for almost 2 years. I have 6 pairs of the Softec Ultras. I have been recommending them to my patients.

Heather


The best flip flop - ever.

I have tried so many flip flops. These are the only ones that are perfectly cushioned, but also have great arch and metatarsal support (taking the pressure off my big toe joint). They wrap around my slightly narrow foot like they were custom made. I wear a 9-9.5, and a 9 in these is perfect. I bought pairs for my mom and sister, too (neither have the big toe problems I do) and the smile and response was identical the second they put they them on... "Aaahh, that's nice." Please expand the SOLE footwear line - this footbed is incredible!!!

Sonia


RELIEF

I suffer from arthritis in my toes and was limping terribly. Orthotics helped for full shoes but was too warm for summer. Tied these on advice of shoe store. RELIEF was almost instantaneous. I can't emphasize too much how these have helped my feet. Thank you!

Lisa Charles


BEST-EVER!

I hurt my back about 4 1/2 years ago. Since then I have spent more $$ than I care to share trying to find comfortable shoes. Alas, I tried these at the referral of a friend. OMG, I LOVE THESE SHOES. I put these on the minute I arrive from the office and they feel great! Purchasing my second pair now. Thanks Sole!

Kelley


long distance runner.

I'm a long distance runner and former marathon runner. I came across Sole about 7 years ago While surfing the internet. I pronate really bad always had to wear orthodtics they were about 500.00 i couldnt afford them anymore so i thought i would try Sole. Im so glad i did i got the signature - karnazes and i have been wearing them every since. Thank you so much because Sole really work.

ian


Best footwear & best service

I spend a lot of time in sandals & have tried almost every top brand available as I found walking long distances in them uncomfortable. I've suffered everything from bruised soles to shin splints over the years. Then I was bought a pair of Sole flips, the difference is amazing, shock absorption and foot support is second to none. The service is outstanding, replacing my initial pair with smaller without quibble. Never again will I be suffering from wearing those overpriced Brazilian and German equivalents which just do not compare in quality or service. My feet thank you.

Lena Odie


None Other

Since a knee injury several years back, I looked into orthotics but came across a store where they sold these sandals. Since than, I'm on my 4th or 5th pair of women's sandals and wear them day in day out! I wish they were more affordable, though are worth every penny!! They are truly the best, there is none other!

Miriam


Healthy Shoes

I am a connoisseur of healthy shoes. I have owned just about every brand out there in every price point. The SOLE sandals are the best flip flop style shoe I have ever worn. Don't let the casual style fool you - these are more comfortable, more supportive, and better fitting than many strap-on styles. They fit snug to the foot, so you don't have to crunch your toes while you walk. The sole is so supportive in every spot, it's hard to go barefoot anymore. But if it seems too snug at first, or the sole seems too firm, do give it time because as you get used to the shoe you'll notice something amazing happen. The sole seems to mold to your own foot, and it gets more and more comfy as it does. I have the cork footbed model and the slides, and both are hard to take off. Lucky for me I live in a climate where sandals are the shoe of choice eight months of the year.

Richard


Excellent Product

These insoles have made it possible for me to walk long distances again, as I used to do before developing plantar fascitis about 18 months ago. I've been using them for 9 months with great success. Recommended by a podiatrist I saw. Nothing else was required. I bought 2 pairs -- one for dress shoes, and a thicker one for runners and trail shoes. Excellent product and very good value.

A great sole

My husband and I were traveling fromMaine to Florida and somewhere during the trip, I lost one of my insoles. As soon as we landed inFlorida we set out to find a new pair. At a running store, we came across Sole and they are the best over the counter insoles I have ever had. I have suffered with flat feet since a child and have had a few bouts of plantar fasciitis. These are an excellent product and I will be purchasing a pair for my golf shoes, and two more pairs for my other sneakers.

Heather


LOVE these socks

These have been my favorite socks since I was introduced to them just over 6 years ago. I LOVE them. They have no seals and a great snug fit around my foot arch. These are the only socks I run in!

Jodie


My savior

These shoes are the only shoes that keep me sane. I stand over 10 hours a day at work. I was suffering from posterior tibial tendonitis (from running) and they were the only shoe (along with the sole flip flop) that got me through. I have recently suffered another injury to my other foot (strains and inflammation) and they have been the only shoe I could wear since being out of the cam boot. Thank you SOLE!

Joshmakes3


Best Insoles Ever!

I have been suffering from Plantar fasciitis for over a year now. Went to podiatrist and he put me in another brand of insoles. I had little to no improvement. He told me the next step was custom inserts and that my insurance would not cover the $450 cost. I found these moldable inserts after reading several great reviews. I can actually feel the support on the arch of my foot! I FINALLY am pain free. I have told 2 different people on my tennis team and they went out and bought them. They told me yesterday that both of them can already feel relief. Thank you so much for making a wonderful product. I thought I would never feel relief!!

Geoff Liddy


freedom of wearing flops

Ever since I tried on a friends pair of SOLE Flips few years ago, I've thrown out every other flop I owned. From a car accident, I suffer the remnants of a right-ankle injury and your flops arch and support are wonderful. They literally gave me back the freedom of wearing flops comfortably. And I can assure you , as a South Florida outdoor enthusiast I live in flops J.

Jorge Pena


Best Product in the market

I test trialed this product a few years back, and without hesitation can say I would never contemplate switching brands. I am currently on my second deployment with my original pair. First was Iraq, now Afghanistan. The terrain here is absolutely brutal, unforgiving some may say. But SOLE rises to the occasion and simply delivers, always...guaranteed!

tanya


nice pair

I have been suffering from Plantar fasciitis and my physiotherapist recommended using sole products, being expensive i didnt order for long time, but it came to extent that I couldnt tolerate pain, so I thought i should give a try and ordered them. now I wear everyday to even work and feel so comfortable that somebody is protecting my feet. I dont feel any more pain wearing them. I think these are worth each penny than paying hundreds of dollars for physiotherapy. the only downside which I see is little broader around toes

Lou


Fabulous Shoe

I am a size 8.5, but the size 9 was too big for me. Sole just sent me a size 8 and it is a perfect fit. The comfort level cannot be described in words, and fabulous is an understatement. My podiatrist carries Sole insoles, so I ordered these online. He knows foot care, and Sole only sells the best. My love and thanks to Sole for happy feet.

Tom


Plantar fasciitis + Squash

Might sound crazy to spend half as much the price of a performance athletic shoe for an insole, but there is nothing better that I've found on the market for managing/preventing foot pain like Plantar fasciitis. Squash is incredibly tough on your feet. I ALWAYS use these (and happily buy them). Great product SOLE.

Paula


GREAT boots

I bought these boots because my UGGS were killing my plantar fasciitis. I had already bought a pair of SOLE flip flops and loved them. These boots were great. I wore them hunting and my feet did not hurt much at all hiking through the woods. I would highly recommend them if you suffer from plantar fasciitis.

John


Marathoner

I have had these for over 2 years when my Sports Injury Surgeon recommended them, because I had a blister problem. I have run 3 half marathons and 2 full in these and have'n't had a single blister since. I run about 1500 miles a year and wear these on every run except two. The two I didn't wear them, I got blisters. I am at the point now where I will need another pair, but the best thing ever. Thanks Doc and thank you SOLE.

jules


I love em

I live in these flips.....I have wide feet, bunions and like a lot of support for my arches...I can walk the city in these flips and not complain about my feet at night!!

Rita H


Best I've found yet

Pros: they actually fit into some of my casual shoes (boots, loafers and actually one pair of ballet flats! but I had to tear out the original foot bed from the ballet shoe). I have a small foot (size 5.5) and it's nearly impossible to find shoes that I can fit an insole into but these are the most thin & narrow that I have found. I have PF and I'm young so I don't want to wear tennis shoes every day so these have at least given me some other options. Cons: the little holes actually irritate my foot/skin after several hours. I don't think those are needed. They are 'hard' but then it seems all insoles/arch supports are.

F Filipchuk


Excellent quality

Purchased these flips as I love flip flops and this brand has the support I need. I have rheumatoid arthritis and effects my feet. These flips are so comfortable and support the whole foot bed! Excellent product! Can wear them pretty much all day, and foot not sore or tired! Thank you, hugely recommend this product.

Korey Konga


Best work shoes I've ever owned

I am a waiter and I also run ultra marathons for fun. Sole flip slops have been the only product I've found to help relieve my foot pain (most often, Plantar Fasciitis). The only time I spend good money on a shoe is for my running, but I have never found a comfortable work shoe. I took a gamble on these and they were totally worth it! I wear a size 9 normally (size 9 1/2 in my trail shoes) but I took the sole reps recommendation and went with a size 10. They're a little loose, but I feel the 9 probably would've been too tight. Anyways, These are awesome. They feel like I'm wearing flip flops at work and they look professional too! My feet have never been happier, I wish I would've looked into these a long time ago. Thanks Sole!

Barbara Schumacher


Scuba Diver Loves These!

These are great socks! The dual-layers really help reduce friction. I am a scuba diver and after my week long dive trips with 3 dives a day I would head home with major sores on my toes from friction in my dive boots. I decided to try these socks in my boots and presto....no sores! They fit snug and when you first look at them you might think "are these really going to fit my foot?" They do! I'm buying more!

Virginia Rainville


Virginia from Princeton, Mass.

I have plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and severe pronation in both feet. I began walking daily this past January and am walking up to 7 miles per day. this is possible because I am wearing great Brooks Running shoes, Control style, and very importantly...I always have my Sole Softec Ultra footbeds in every pair of shoes I own. They are wonderful. They are the thickest footbed Sole makes. They provide lots of cushioning and control, to keep my heel positioned right where it should be. I love them. I highly recommend them to anyone with similar foot problems. If it wasn't for the combo of great sneakers and great footbeds, I would not be able to walk as much as I am. Thank you Sole for a great product!

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.

Christopher Lundquist


Great Product

I have had my Softec Ultra's for about 2 years now, and they have had a dramatic impact on my feet. I was told by my chiropractor that I was flat footed, which I never thought about before, and also effected the pain level of my sciatica problem, but after getting these new soles and doing a couple of sessions with the chiropractor he helped me to be able to walk aging with minimal pain.

Perfect for my Derby Skates

I play roller derby and skate on a size 4.5 Riedell boot. The women's size 7 fits perfect in my boot with just a tiny bit of trimming along the toes to fit width. (I wear a 6.5 normal shoe) I've had a lot of arch problems with my right pushing foot and these have been a big help in easing the pain.

Mark Jordan


FINALLY - After 25 Years.

It's true. I've been snowboarding for 25 years and have suffered through all of the big name boots with high arches & insteps, to the point that I was convinced foot pain and numb toes were simply part of the sport. Saving an extremely long saga, these footbeds have rejuvenated my love for the carve. They have allowed me to focus on my experience rather than how many more runs I can get in before I have to pack it in and take off my boots.

Greig Taylor


Comfort Guaranteed

As a member of the armed forces we are on our feet a lot, both in boots and trainers. I had an issue with the old issued boots and got Altberg peacekeeper aqua's instead. Trying on these new boots they were SO comfortable yet supportive, however when adding these insole's, if i was blindfolded i would have said i had another pair of boots that were so much more comfortable than the Atlbergs. I now even stand (being flat footed) with a better pronation. I cannot recommend these insoles enough. They are the Dogs...

Margaret Herbert


Comfortable dress boots

This is the first pair of "dress" boots I have been able to wear in years because of foot issues (I generally wear shock absorbing shoes with SOLE footbeds and SOLE slides.) They are low heeled, comfortable and easy to get on and off thanks to the zipper and gusset. There is enough room in the calf area for most to wear with skinny jeans. I wear a size 8 1/2 and ordered up as recommended. The foot is a bit large, but fits fine with heavy socks.

Cheryl Blaquiere


Very Comfortable

I have been wearing the Sole insoles for about a year now with no issues whatsoever and find them very comfortable for my needs and daily activities. They were recommended to me by my podiatrist after discovering I have Mortons neuroma in the left foot and plantar facisatis in both feet.

Will Pfeiffer


Great Flips!

These flips are awesome.. they are the only flips I have that I can wear an entire day walking without foot pain, particularly in my arches. Yes.. the web over the top of the foot is a little tight to begin with, but over time as you break them in they offer a perfectly snug fit that I can wear with confidence in a variety of terrains without losing a flip.

Lloyd English


I could hear angels singing

Over the past three years I have been from Walmart to Footsmart buying inserts to help with my foot pain; I even purchased two differnt types of custom inserts. When I walked into the Virginia Runners store in Fredericksburg, Va, put the Softec Ultra Footbeds in my shoe, and took a few steps, the clouds parted, the sun came out, and I could hear angels singing. Thank you !, thank you!, thank you!.

Keith Ashmore


Colavita Cycling Loves these socks!

We (the team) have been using the Lightweight Sport Socks for two years now. We love the fit, and the feel of these in our cycling shoes. They are thin and comfortable for those long rides, and intense workouts. Breath and evaporate sweat easily, very streachy fabric, and the left and right logo designation helps keep things "on the right foot". Try em, you'll be stoked! Keifer Colavita SW Cycling Team

pain cured

I'm a Diesel Mech and stand on concrete all day in boots. Had no support. I bought a pair of Softec Ultra because my daily plantar pain was killing me from first step out of bed and any time i would stand up I would limp because of pain. I did everything the doctor said except buy 350.00 special orthos.My daughter is in the army and told me about soles they all use them to run. They have great support. Doctor said I had a collapsed, arch. I did not even put in oven I use as they are. Six months later I was cured. I'm even running again at 50 two miles every other day.Have a pair in all my shoes now. Do not buy orthos without trying this product.50.00 over 350. any day. I have had foot problems all my life. I've tried all the inserts on the market. These the only one that worked less orthos. I glad to discuss this with anyone my E-mail was provided to Sole

Chris Summers


Softec Ultra

I have had a pair for two years. To this day there is no sign of ware. They are truly amazing. I am an athletic trainer and Sole is my go to foot bed for all my athletes.

eli soto


AHHHH

Loved this product. From the moment I stepped into them, I felt instant relief! My plantar fasciitis has made it difficult to find a pair of sandals that are comfortable to walk in. These are great. I would have given it a 5 star rating, however there was rubbing on the top left inner strap where my foot over pronates and rubs against. I hope that will go away soon because I love the way they feel on the bottom of my feet!

Tim Houseknecht


better than custom

I've had two pairs for well over a year and they are still like new. They are forgiving but still very sturdy. Tired of moving them from shoe to boot and so forth, so I'm buying another pair or 2. I had prescription insoles made through my foot doctor for a tough case of plantar fasciitis, and these are much more comfortable and effective in my opinion.

ibai Demirdache


Can't live without them!

I love my Sole Exhales. I wear them around the house with the back flipped down and they're so comfortable! I even use them to exercise - I have a cross country ski machine and my feet will slide out of the foot straps when I wear my runners on the machine. Can't do it bare foot because I have flat feet and it hurts too much. One day I got on with my Exhales and it was amazing. They don't slip and provide great support!

Laura Brads


Amazing, Comfortable, Supportive Flips!

I have had 3 back surgeries in the past 5 years, the 3rd this past January being a fusion. I thought I would never be able to wear flip flops again since my arch would fall and they provided absolutely NO support! My physical therapist recommended SOLE's footbeds and all of SOLE's products, so upon buying the footbeds, I thought I would try a pair of sport flips! I LOVE THEM!!!! I am super excited to know that I can wear flip flops again and that, as a matter of fact, my arch and foot would even be supported and super comfortable. The trial of my footbeds and the 2 pair of flips (one casual, one sport) I ordered in the spring is over...I am an official forever fan of SOLE products! I just placed my second SOLE order of 3 new pair of sport flips and another set of footbeds. Thank you, SOLE!!!!!!!!

Christina


Feet Savers!

I bought two pairs of these Sport Slim Soles two years ago for my hockey skates and downhill ski boots. They made a huge difference in the comfort of my skates. I have plantar fasciitis and flat feet, and my skates feel like slippers now! My ski boots felt like they were crushing my foot downwards. Now I feel like I have some arch support, and my feet sit more neutral in the boot. I will be buying more pairs for my walking/running shoes and motorcycle boots. Thanks for making such a great product!

Relief

Suffered with plantar fasciitis for several years, got so bad I couldn't walk. Finally went for PT and other treatments with the possiblity of surgery if pain did not improve. Purchased $500 orthotics, but still suffered some discomfort, with tightness in the heel/foot every morning and intermittent discomfort/pain while up. Recently, I started to get severe pain in both feet again, somedays it hurt so bad it was difficult walking, and this was with my custom orthotics. I was ready to go back to the doctor and PT, when I remembered I had bought these SOLE soles just before I got my orthotics so I never really used them. I put the SOLES in my work boots and within three days my pain was almost completely gone. A month or so later, I am 100% pain free in both feet and absolutely no pain/stiffness/tightness in the morning. I have to believe these SOLES gave me this relief. I would recommend these to anyone suffering from any kind of foot problem. I will be buying a couple more pairs to put in my other shoes...Thank You SOLE!

Great! But one further improvement

I've got four pairs of these and they work great for my flat feet. I've got $300+ custom foot beds and they are just as good. But like others have reviewed it would be nice if they could make a narrower pair. The thins are great and works in more of my shoes & sneakers, but not all due to the width of them. Come on Sole get them in the design and production stages, pretty sure you'll sell them. BTW their socks are great too!!! thanks again

I'm Hooked

After 5 different footbeds, Both off the shelf and custom fitted and two different boot manufacturers, I thought I would never find a pair of boots the would not hurt my feet while hunting in the mountains of Alaska and Colorado. But then I received a pair of Softec Response with a pair of Kenetrek boots and I was hooked. I inserted the Sole footbed into my hiking boot and realized I finally had the right match. I have now put over 30 miles packing 40 to 80 pound packs and my feet never once got blisters and my legs and back handled the heavier load much better. I am hooked I bought a pair of Flips and they are the best feeling flips I have ever had. I just ordered 3 more sets of different foot beds for all my shoes. The customer service is fantastic! I over heated on set of footbeds, melting just the right one. I called to order a new pair and when I mentioned this, the Sole rep. just said " No problem" I'll send you a new pair. That is great service and is the reason I am buying more inserts and letting everyone I know how great Sole inserts are. Keep up the great job. Ski season is coming soon and I will be trying out my new Sole inserts this season! Ron Ewer

Get These

12 hours on my feet running around a very busy ER and no more back/ foot pain. I've tried many pairs of insoles over the last 20+ years but these are by far the best. I was starting to get plantar fasciitis, bought these my feet stopped hurting. Then i noticed that my low back wasn't hurting as much. Now no more back pain in part due to improved posture when standing. Being pain free and able to work is worth every penny.

best shoes

I purchased a pair of your shoes for the first time last winter, and can't wait to order my next pair. They're the only shoes that eliminate all my foot pain.

Curtis Rosing


go to

I bought a pair of these from a running store a couple of years ago. I put them in a pair of my post office aproved shoes. I have four different shoes I wear for work all with factory insoles or after market insoles. My favorite pair of shoes hands down is the pair with these Sole Ultra Inserts. Take it from a mail man that walks twelve miles a day and was a foot soldier for seven years, I have tried almost everything when it come to footwear. This is the best insole I have tried so far...

Wayne Herd


Best so far

While the Sole Ultra has helped my sore feet alot it has not solved all my problems 100%. I work in a warhouse on a cement floor all day and I'm still looking for that product out there that fixes my soreness 100%. This product is the best thing I have found so far, but it has not been the entire answer for me. I don't know where else to go or what else to do. Foot Doctor was recommended to me, so I checked them out, but I can't afford to put out 800 dollars for what they want to give me, so I guess I will keep these for now as they have done better than anything else I have tried.

Richard Ravin


Just give them time

I have pairs of the sport sandals and the causal sandals. After 6 months with the causal sandals the footbed has molded to my foot and the strap has stretched out and the fit great. I can walk for days in these sandals even after a long run. Just give them time and they will be the best sandal you have ever worn.

Keith Fitzsimmons


Best Insoles ever

Hi I had a mid foot fusion some 10 months ago, and as a Physiotherapist who knows which insoles should work and not only help my problem but other patients problems, I was blown away at how much pain relief and support the sole insoles have given me. I can now walk 4 miles in minimal pain after only 6 weeks of using them in my neutral trainers. I have now started issuing them at our military base for service personnel and every user had come back and made exactly the same positive remarks. I would highly recommend these insoles to anyone.

Victoria Day


excellent!

I have been using Sole inserts in my walking shoes for the past year with great results for my foot pain due to over-pronation and flat feet. So, I was thrilled to see these sandals. I was concerned that they would not fit my size 10 narrowish foot, but they are perfect for me. I am very happy to find such a well made and comfortable product. Please make lots more styles of shoes and sandals:-)

Hands down the best socks I've ever used

Hands down the best socks I've ever used. I've finished over 75 marathons and ultras and have yet to get a blister in these socks. A couple years back I ordered a couple pair of black socks to use for a 50-mile trail run. Got them on Friday, did the 50 on Saturday and didn't have a single foot issue the entire way. Keep up the great work!

Thin, yes. Casual, yes. Dress, no

Have tried several treatments for my recent development plantar fasciitis and decided to go the orthotic route and SOLE in particular when a friend said the SOLE socks really helped him. Decided to try the Thin Casual so I could wear them in both my dress and running shoes. While the feel great in running and Keen-type casual shoes and have helped tremendously, they are not for dress shoes. A bit disappointed in that respect but overall my foot feels tons better so I can overlook the fact that I cannot wear them during the day at work. Highly recommend and considering purchasing some socks.

They are the ultimate insert for my falling arches

A few years ago, at the age of about 25, my high arches started to feel the strain of not getting enough support, even with $200.00 shoes designed to support all the areas of my arch. I had a sore arch and heel spurs from standing for 10+ hours a day, and spent hundreds of dollars and tons of time researching different inserts and learned all about what made my foot unique and how to solve my problems. The ONLY solution I was able to find outside of birkenstock cork-bed sandals was the SOLE heat-moldable inserts. Unlike any insert on the market that I could find, they not only have the ability to fit the TOTAL area of my foot's needed support like a custom glove, but are also stiff, therefore disallowing my foot's arch to stretch as I step (a major reason my arch becomes sore during standing/walking/running, etc.) They are the ultimate insert for my falling arches, much needed inside-heel support, and keep my foot stiff and firm, not allowing that arch tendon to stretch. Lastly, they really help keep my foot aligned well and not tilted at all, which can cause my left kee especially to ache. With the bulk purchasing on the website, I can regularly get a great deal on as many as I can pick up in a package deal at a time, making sure that each and every shoe I own has its own insole. I'm planning on being a lifelong customer for sure. I wear them out and buy more.

Amanda H


Wish I knew about the before!

I was told to get these shoes by my foot doctor after a stress fracture. My $2.00 flip flops were not the cause of my stress fracture, but did not help either. Thanks to a good doctor, and great groupon in December I got a pair. Now I am back to order another color for summer. Best flip flops/sandals ever. Your feet deserve it and they are worth it!

Chris Bowie


In short, I LOVE 'em!

I don't often bother to give feedback on many products but I felt it was necessary at this time. I purchased your Ultra Softec Footbeds about 3 weeks ago and I am nothing but impressed. I've now used them in my Dakota work boots for 180+ hours, in -30 to +5 outside weather and I am just blown away at how comfortable I've been. My foot fatigue has all but DISAPPEARED! I don't "crackle" when I walk across a room anymore & taking off my boots at the end of the day is more like taking off a sneaker than a ski boot. I swear, my feet have been warmer as well. In short, I LOVE 'em! I wish that I'd had them for all of my 25 years in work boots.

Rick Dutton


Almost great

I have been a Sole footbed customer for years. When the original sandals came out, I tried them but could never accept the thong. When the slide became available, I ordered a pair immediately. I have worn them constantly since they arrived. The support from the footbed makes the slide the most comfortable sandal I have ever owned. In warm weather, they are all I wear. In cold weather, my shoes hit the closet and are replaced with the slide as soon as I enter the house. Changes? - The front edge of the strap should be scalloped up the instep as it sits too near the toes. When you bend your foot it can rub or poke into the top of your toes. I would love to see a leather upper, and more color choices.

You are doing something very right

Dear Sole, I want to thank you for your inserts. I've been to 4 podiatrists over the course of the last 6-7 years, and have had orthotics made by all. None have helped my feet the way yours do. After years of pain ranging from neuromas, metatarsel issues, tendonitis, and various other lovely feet issues, I can say I've been pain free in the walking department for the last 6 weeks due to your inserts. I cannot thank you enough. You are doing something very right. be well, have a wonderful new year.. will continue to purchase inserts for everyone in our family..

Now I have them for all my shoes

I had suffered with plantar fasciitis for a year before I purchased my first pair of footbeds. Since purchasing my first pair, I have been pain free and am loving it! Now I have them for all my shoes.

Chad Snyder


Within three days virtually ALL of the pain in my left foot was gone!

Hi, My name is Chad Snyder from Bent Mountain Va. Being a big guy 6'2" and 300 lbs, 40 years old and very active I am hard on my feet to say the least. For the last year I have suffered badly with plantar fasciitis in my left foot. About two weeks ago I purchased a pair of Sole Ultra moldable footbeds for my boots. Rather than heating them to get a fit I simply put them in my boots and went on my way. Within three days virtually ALL of the pain in my left foot was gone! After two weeks I can't remember what it felt like to have that excruciating pain when I took my first steps of the morning. I am not overstating how happy this makes me then I say that I am ECSTATIC!!! If you know anything about plantar fascilitis you know it can be all but debilitating. I have tried several other products over the last year and nothing worked. Thanks for the great product and thanks helping me get rid of my pain!!

Mike


My dogs were screaming by the end of the day

Worked on concrete 10 hours a day. My dogs were screaming by the end of the day. By the end of the week I could barely take a step without pain. For 4 years I tried different shoes. The Redwing/Sole combination took care of the problem. Now my feet hurting aren't even in the picture anymore. Thanks.

Harold Pydo


Best relief available

I've read the other reviews and agree. there isn't anything better. I 'had' plantar faciatis. I had a knee replaced. I had a lot of foot pain. I got 3 pair of these and put them in my shoes. Switched them for whatever insoles come with the shoes, and there's always a noticeable improvement. The insoles that come with most any shoe you buy is the cheapest part of the shoe, yet is what you need for good support. Go figure. These are great and will be the only insoles I use...

Teri Roy


I'm in LOOOOOOOOOVE

I work 12 hour shifts on a busy nursing floor. There are days I do not get to sit down! I'm also a runner. My feet take a beating. Coming home to my Exhales is something I look forward to every day. Confession: I even wear the suckers to work occasionally when I'm on nights or weekends (yeeees, I disinfect before bringing them home). My Exhales are, without a doubt, the comfiest, cosiest thing my feet have ever encountered. I have orthotics in every pair of footwear that I own but there is something particularrily comforting about the combination of the support, sheepskin foot pad lining and soft sides. My back, hips, knees, bunions and feet THANK YOU.

Brandon Wood


Warm style

This weekend brought the first brrrr-worthy temperatures to my corner of the world. It also brought more opportunity for me to slip the wonderfully plush SOLE Exhale’s on my feet. The Exhale hearkens back to the childhood days of moon boots. Their upper actually looks like a cross between a low-top moon boot and a super puffy jacket and is water resistant, rip-stop fabric. The footbed is wear moldable which means that, like SOLE’s other shoes, the footbed will become customized to your foot over time, increasing comfort and feel. On top of that, the footbed is Sherpa lined and super soft. Since such a warm shoe could be sweat inducing at times, the Exhale uses Polygiene® as an antimicrobial to fight odor. I think part of the brilliance in SOLE’s production is that all of their shoes and sandals use the same wear moldable footbed. Whether it’s their Platinum Sandals of the Exhale, you can be sure that the shoe is going to feel consistently right on your foot. The Exhale is incredibly roomy inside but it never feels to me like it’s insecure. As for warmth, these are right at the top of the list. Between the fabric and the stuffing, no wind is getting through to make your feet feel the least bit chilly. I actually find myself wearing them at home as much as outside. The heel of the shoe easily folds down (it’s meant to) to give a slip-on feel and I can foresee many days this winter being spent entirely in these shoes. If you don’t already have a pair of über warm casual shoes to keep your feet toasty this winter, the Exhale (for men and women) is a great choice. Also, it’s a perfect way to transition either to or from SOLE’s Platinum Sandals once Summer comes back to town!

I took the plunge and have never been more satisfied with my decision

I actually purchased my SOLE sandals while vacationing. I was looking for a pair of Reef sandals when the sales representative suggested your sandals for a little more money. I took the plunge and have never been more satisfied with my decision. I have had problems with pain in the ball of my foot area. Since getting these sandals (which before this time I would not wear flip flops) I no longer experienced the pain while wearing my sandals so now I wear them daily. If I could get away with it I would wear them to work, but I can't so, I then decided to purchase some of your footbeds. The problem I had was that my shoes range from a 9.5 to a 10.5 (depending on the style and make). Fortunately I purchased the same size of my sandals (10) and they fit perfectly into the 3 different pairs of shoes. I have since recommended them to a couple of my friends who also purchased footbeds and sandals.

Marian Morrissette


5 years + and still working.

I bought these inserts because I was diagnosed with plantar faciitis. It was very painful and the doctor recommended these. I molded them to my feet and immediately felt relief. I have had the same pair for the last five years and they are still working. I put them in whatever shoes or sneakers that I am wearing after removing the inserts that come with the shoes. I am on my feet all day working and walking back and forth on cement floors. These inserts saved me from constant pain. The top layer is finally wearing thin after all these years so I am going to get another pair. I highly reccommend them to everyone with foot or knee pain.

Jamie


I have been a happy customer for about five years now

I am a family physician and also practiced in the Air Force for several years before going civilian. I suffered from plantar faciitis for six straight years. I found SOLE footbeds in my military uniform store around 2005. I bought a pair for my combat boots and they were amazing. I then went online and ordered some for my running shoes, my soccer shoes, and my casual shoes. I have been a happy customer for about five years now and with the combination of my SOLE footbeds and a little activity modification, I have been rid of my plantar faciitis symptoms for over two years now. I am always careful though, because I know the symptoms can return. One of the preventive maintenance things I always do is wear shoes indoors when I walk around on our tile flooring. After reading the great reviews, I am going to order my first pair of SOLE sandals and plan to use them when walking around on our tile floors as one more way to stave off any return of my previous heel pain symptoms. I can't wait until they arrive. SOLE has not failed me yet!

Cynthia Mone


Foot And Knee Problems??

I run 5 miles a day and after many years of doing this I began having extreme foot pain and knee pain so bad that it stopped me from running. The Dr. diagnosed me with plantar fasciitis and arthritis in my knees. He said my feet would heal by itself in due time but to stay off my feet, but I need to learn to live with the pain in my knees. I did for a while but it didn't improve at all. I finally tried these foot beds and in under a week both problems disappeared completely. I will never wear shoes without them again. I Love them. Thank you so much for making these.

James


These will keep me jogging on!

Immediate relief from foot pain. These will keep me jogging on!

They gave me more relief from my plantar fascitis than the custom orthotics I'd tried

I bought Soles in preparation for a ten day hike on the AT last Spring. They gave me more relief from my plantar fascitis than the custom orthotics I'd tried. Yesterday, they really paid off again - I was clearing a friend's yard and stepped on a three-inch rusty nail sticking out of a board. The nail went through the sole of my hiking boot like butter, but didn't peirce my skin. I chalked it up to luck, but later on, when I took off my soggy boots and removed the inserts to dry, I found a nice little dent in the bottom of my right Sole - it had stopped the nail which would have gone through my foot for sure. Thanks for saving me from a trip to the doctors office, a tetanus shot, and a week of limping!!

Jon


I have tried many other brands, but have never had the success that I had with Sole

After experiencing chronic foot pain (gout, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and cramping brought on by limping from a severe hamstring injury) my podiatrist recommended Sole inserts. It took a couple of months, but all my foot problems went away. This was about 10 years ago. I have tried many other brands, but have never had the success that I had with Sole. A lot people have recommended Superfeet and I have tried them. I don't think there is anything wrong with the other brands, its just that for me personally Sole is the most comfortable and gives me the best results. I buy enough pairs in different thicknesses to put in the shoes that I wear most often. And I have a couple pairs in different thicknesses that I transfer from shoe to shoe as needed. I should mention that I am a big hiker. I go 2 miles every morning and go on 4 to 8 hour hikes about once or twice a week. Depending on the hike and the weather, I use heavy duty Vasques, lightweight Patagonia, sandals from either Teva or Keen and hiking boots from Keen. I wear the inserts with everything except Chaco sandals. I have also worked as a lift operator at ski areas and have always worn inserts in my snow boots. Bumping chairs all day is really brutal on your feet. You stand on the ball of your foot and lift your heel. As the people sit down, you bump the chair and let it spin you around, so you see the takeoff. When you see that no one has fallen out you must spin back around for the next chair. This is repeated every 5 to 7 seconds. I never had one bit of foot problem.

Nathalie Clericy


I'm ecstatic about the results

First I'd like to say that your insoles ROCK!  I tore my plantar fascia a few years ago and in addition to that have always had foot pain of some kind when hiking, whether 5 miles or multi-day and I never thought I'd be able to hike without worrying about how my feet would feel afterwards.  I purchased the Signature EV Ultra footbed for my hiking boots that will take me backpacking this season and I'm ecstatic about the results as I was literally skipping after my last long hike. I also purchased a couple of Softec Response footbeds for my trail runners that I use for light hiking and general all day walking and a pair of Thin Casuals for my tennis shoes and so far I am amazed; no pain whatsoever.  The pain and discomfort I used to feel everyday from minimal to major is now gone but I do feel it when I don't use the footbeds.  In fact, it's so noticeable that my husband jokes about me having my footbeds when we go somewhere to make sure I can keep up. One comment I have though is that the footbed doesn't exactly fit the shoes.  The shoes and boots are size 6 as are the footbeds, but they're 4/16 short of the end.  I first noticed it on the heel when I slipped the boots on; the footbed had slipped off the back of the heel, so I brought it flush with the heel but then found that the toe now has space.  Since I wear my boots a 1/2 size larger it's not an issue in performance or comfort, but I was just curious if others had mentioned this? Either way I'm keeping all of my footbeds and will definitely purchase more in the future as well as recommending them to all my friends.  Thank you for a great product!

It won't be my last pair - they are awesome

I bought my first pair of Sole Sandals - the sport slide. It won't be my last pair - they are awesome. I have struggled with plantar fasciitis for 7 years. Unfortunately, the podiatrist I was seeing didn't treat my condition properly. After enduring too much pain, I found another podiatrist and had foot surgery in February 2010. About a month ago, I started experiencing excruciating heel pain. I had been told that I would still experience pain for about 6 months. But this was a different sensation & wasn't getting better, so I went to my doctor yesterday. He said my bone was severely bruised and that it would take about 2 months to heal and I needed physical therapy. He also told me to make sure I was wear good shoes even around the house. I didn't want to wear my athletic shoes or dress shoes in the house; yet, my house slippers weren't providing enough support & it hurts to go barefooted. So I googled heel pain and treatments & found a website that recommended your sandals. I went to your website, found a local retailer and bought them today. So this long winded email to say... thank you!! I had relief immediately. It doesn't hurt so bad to just walk. I had been wearing Fit Flops & Skeechers new Tone Up sandals which didn't give me the proper support.

Bruce Persiano


Superior

Been to the foot doctors and had special orthotics made and they did not help me at all. I purchased these sole products and they are superior. It has helped me tremendously and I will be and on going customer. I just purchased a pair of the slide sandals.

Gerald Mosley


Ready to RUN

A bone spur on my left foot can cause me a lot of pain when I run too much( about 20 miles per week outdoors)- However I went to my Dr. and he recommended this product. Ironically I ran a 10k race 2 days after my purchase and I have to tell I'm impressed. I should have road tested them prior to the race but I figured what the heck do I have to loose other than the race. The uphill route was not an issue and my legs felt great even 2 days later no pain. This was a great purchase! Cheers Gerald

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.

Roslyn Wetzel


Life Savers!!!!!

Last year, I broke my foot and had to wear these for a while. But even after my healing stage, I continued to where these amazing shoes. They actually give my foot support unlike other shoes. And get this: they are fashion friendly!

Marv Caldwell


Thank you

I suffered with plantar fasciitis for over two years, very miserable, I am a nurse and of course on my feet for hours. Finally the third Podiatrist I went to said to buy a shoe that bends only at the ball of the foot, and buy Sole inserts. The relief was immediate and I have been comfortable for over two yrs. now. I can tell when I need to reheat and mold, or new ones or new shoes. For the relief I got and the price, very thankful, worth every penny for sure!!!

MJ Thomas


FIVE STARS !!!!

Most orthopedists will tell you that they will get rich as the flip-flop craze is ruining young peoples feet and backs; wearing something with zero support 24/7 that were designed for wearing at the beach. I’m so glad my Orthopedist turned me onto Sole flips. For someone with pretty flat, pronated feet, your flips actually support the foot; give you an arch, etc. It’s like a flip that’s an orthotic – but the great part is they look like regular flip-flops – not like ortho-flips! I think Sole could do a little better with the color combos, they seem to either be a big bore, or they are “too out there”. I don’t know a lot of guys who will wear bright green and white, the blacks are just too black. I think you are on the right track with the more recent different grays. Keep up the great work! They are pretty expensive for a totally synthetic shoe. How about some leather straps? Even some leather foot beds would be great too.

No pain just comfort

they feel like toning shoes, my feet actually rock. No pain just comfort, I don't want to take them off

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.

Wendy Katsiotis


Another PT review

I saw these at a professional conference and bought some for myself. I have just walkerd all over New Zealand in them with NO FOOT PAIN!! I highly recommend and am sending some to my Aunt!

Loui


LOVE THESE!

I run several miles per week and used to have athletes foot flare up all the time. These socks (a) have built-in arch support, (b) have a cooling mesh by the toes, and (c) survive wash after wash (even with clorox bleach)!! The end result is happy, comfortable feet with no fungus. My whole family (include the guys) buy only this sock brand now. Worth every penny!!! Also - these are thin enough to wear every day even in snug shoes. They are so comfortable you don't even notice them.

I have gained freedom from pain in my feet, hips back and neck

I tried these without any recommendation or knowledge of your company or product line. I have suffered for years from problems with foot alignment, a bad back, and even orthopedic surgery to correct back and foot problems. Doctors prescribed incredibly expensive orthotics which my insurance company will not pay for (they are a luxury item). When I stumbled across your website, honestly I thought to myself "what do I have to lose?" I have lost nothing. I have gained freedom from pain in my feet, hips back and neck for the first time in about ten years. I can't thank you enough. I am on my feet all day long and walk a lot. I am becoming your best, free advertisement and will certainly be a repeat customer. Thank you, from the bottom of my feet!

Joseph


I will never buy another brand

I love these inserts. I bought for work original because work 12-hour shifts, in safety-toe shoes, and I walk primarily on concrete for the majority of the shift. Finding good support had been quite challenging. Most shoe inserts are soft and cushion-y to the touch, which I would have thought would help with the impact, but they always lacked in support and my foot would still be sore by the end of the day. These are the best insoles (foot beds) I have ever owned and I will never buy another brand. I have recommended them to several friends at work, and I know at least one has ordered them and expect them to arrive shortly. I expect to continue recommending them for a very long time.

karen wernert


I love them but...

I love these, but they don't fit in all the shoes they suggest. I find that in some shoes my foot sits too high and my heel rubs in and out of the back of the shoe. I do take out the stock insole and that doesn't seem to help. I do LOVE how my feet feel when they do fit properly in some of my shoes, so I am buying the thin sport ones today in hopes they fit my running and walking shoes a bit better. I have also done the "orthotics" thing from the doctors and while they keep your feet in the correct position, these do not solve the cushion problem that I think most of us have. These do both!

John Burns


What foot problem?

After using one pair of soles for only three weeks I am feeling better than I have in at least four years. I have been to two podiatrist's and six months of intense therapy and these have brought me more relief than anything so far. I recently ordered three more pairs for different types of shoes. You won't see me without them. "They are Great!" My wife and I love to square dance with these we may be able to return soon. Keep up the Great job. Can you please make them for western boots too.

They did what they were supposed to do

Was suffering from extreme pain on little toe, due partially to a previous surgery, and was referred to an orthopedic surgeon by my regular doctor. The orthapedic surgeon suggested that prior to another surgery I should try these orthodics from Sole, and a wider shoe. I did so, and after 6 weeks now, on my follow up visit this week; the place doesn't hurt nearly as bad.He suggest now that I should not have the surgery and keep on trying the orthodics. They did what they were supposed to do, and I have already recomended them to some friends and relatives. Thanks very much.

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

Frank


I am very impressed

A quick word to say thanks for SOLE footbeds! I’ve been using for 2 weeks training now and I have to admit I am very impressed!! Foot stability highly improved, might not make me a faster rider but the sensations awesome!!! ;0)

Great insoles save 1 tiny thing

These insoles are incredible. They mold EXACTLY to your foot when you mold them as per the instructions and stand normally as you would daily. Do not attempt to correct your posture too much as you will cause some pain in your knees etc, so remail natural. My only complaint, which isn't a complaint b/c I didn't think it through when I purchased them....they stink after a while. So if the stench of your feet is offensive, get the moisture wicking version (which I plan to buy next time)

The SOLE inserts far exceeded my expectations

When my son first started running Cross Country for BBMS, he had severe pain in his feet and legs from running. He had new AVIA running shoes and the coach said they were good shoes. She advised me that if the pain persisted, he would need to see a doctor. After putting the SOLE inserts into his shoes, the change was just short of miraculous! The pain was completely gone, even after 2 or 3 mile runs!! As a direct result, his times improved dramatically. The SOLE inserts far exceeded my expectations. I can't express my gratitude to you enough for making the inserts available

I will be a customer for life

I have high arches and have suffered from heal spurs before. My prescription orthodics were starting wear and began hurting my feet. I was looking for a less expensive alternative and stumbled upon your website after reading an article on runnersworld.com. I am extremely pleased with your products and the difference it has made in my workouts. I will be a customer for life. Thanks!!!

Thanks to these, I'm finally healing

After hiking for months with a heavy pack, I developed a pain in my left sole so extreme I thought I was walking on a broken foot. The doc diagnosed me with a plantar fasciitis, and said it would heal on its own as soon as I kept weight off it. But it didn't. It got better, it got worse, time and again, even after I got rid of the pack. Normal day to day walking was enough to set recovery back. I put these in my daily-wear boots and within the week I was certain that the healing had finally started. The arch support these provide made the difference. It's been a month now and most days I forget that anything had ever gone wrong. It might be another two months before the wound is completely repaired, but I haven't had a single bad day with it since getting these.

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.

After starting with the SOLEs I've seen a ~70% - 80% decrease in the PF /heel pain

Following the 2008 Steamboat Marathon, I developed very bad posterior tibial tendonitis which sidelined my running. The resulting weight gain, perhaps combined with my age, turned into a fierce case of plantar fasciitis which I feared may end my running. Most testimonials say the same thing, but I tried just about everything short of surgery and was just to the point of trying the cortizone shot. Shoe inserts I tried, but which did not work for me, include most over-the-counter ones, "Heel That Pain" ones (which didn't) and "Good Feet" store ones. After starting with the SOLEs I've seen a ~70% - 80% decrease in the PF /heel pain and it is no worse than it was during training and completion of the 3 previous marathons. I am finally running and I can't say the improvement is 100% due to the SOLEs, but they have made a difference that other inserts did not. The combination of calf and hamstring stretching, lifting (loading) and some PT recommended exercises with the SOLE inserts has made the difference.

I first purchased these for my snowboarding boots

I first purchased these for my snowboarding boots as I the outside of my ankle had too much pressure in my boots. After I put in the footbeds, that pain went away almost entirely. I have high arches, and I don't even mold the footbeds. I feel like I could use even higher arches on the footbeds to make me even more comfortable.

Jeff


What a difference!

Feet were sore, doc said to try arch supports. No big deal right? Wrong. Tried 7 (yes, 7!) different brands of arch supports over the past year. All of them had something I didn't like - too wide, too flat, no heel support, moved around, you name it. Finally I went to custom shoe shop locally and saw the Sole inserts. Salesman swore by them, said fully guaranteed if they didn't work. What can I say other than they feel great, actually fit in my dress shoes, and support my entire foot. I love the firm support under the top cushioning. I've found that if the support is not firm enough, I can really feel it after a long day. A negative would be that they are still slightly thick enough to mess with some dress shoes - making the shoes feel tighter. I had to "rip out" some of my stock inserts to get the Soles to fit correctly. None the less, I completely recommend these!

I am hooked

I have been using my Custom Footbeds for about 2 years now and I am hooked! I am a Volunteer Firefighter, and a full-time machine operator in a local factory. I have Footbeds in my work boots, my station boots, and my firefighting boots. Whether its the long hours on my feet in the factory, or the harsh conditions that we firefighters face, my feet are always the last thing to start hurting. I have talked to many of my friends and family, and everyone says the same thing, "Once my feet start hurting, I'm done!" I say the same thing, but now I'm able to perform for a longer time before I'm ready to take a break. Thank you for making such a wonderful product, and I look forward to the next generation of your SOLE products.

My legs feel fine and I can run even more

I only recently started running, and while I am in good shape from surfing, my legs were not completely up to the task. I would get shin splints and just generally various sore muscles and such. Since I started wearing your soles, my legs feel fine and I can run even more.

Plantar Fasciitis

I have never had foot problems my entire life; but recently have been diagnosed with the very painful Plantar Fasciitis. My Physio recommended custom footbeds; but I tried Soles first to see if they would help. All of my symptoms are gone in less that 3 weeks of wearing Soles. I have just ordered 5 more pairs for all of my shoes and a pair of flip flops - I dont want that pain again.

Brad


My foot pain has almost completely disappeared

I saw this in the base exchange, and thought the design would be great for my feet. I was very surprised at how much it helped. My foot pain has almost completely disappeared, and my feet are actually more comfortable when I am wearing my boots with the SOLE in it.

Tony Davies


The best thing I bought myself in years

i've just ended my first days work with my new sole innersoles in my steel toecaped booots and can hand on heart say there the best thng i bought myself in years,ive spent hundreds of pounds on other innersoles from shops and off ebay trying to ease the pain in my foot and knees, after having them in my boots for 8 hours iv noticed my left foot is not aching and i noticed my knees are not aching throuh them grinding, i ony hope the pain relief continues. i hope i can get a pair for my training shoes and 1 day be able to go back the gym pain free

It has been a pleasure dealing with the "SOLE" company

I must say that it has been a pleasure dealing with the "SOLE" company. Foot related problems will change your motivation, ability to train, your ability to play with your children. I am a rangemaster/swat operator for a police department in southern california. As a result of that I am on my feet alot during the day. After visiting several foot doctors in my town a friend told me about "SOLE" footbeds and how much he liked them. I bought a pair the next day and have to say I believe I will have a pair of these in every shoe I wear. Thanks.

I was suffering from Morton's Neuroma

I was suffering from Morton's neuroma, and a running shoe store in Oregon recommended your footbeds. That was 4 years ago and I now buy a pair of soles at least every 6 mo. My husband now uses them and I recommended them to my sister, who is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a triathlon coach. Thanks a ton!

The sole sandals have really helped

I've always had to were orthotics, and was unable to were flip flops for any extended period. The sole sandals have really helped. I also bought a pair for my boyfriend who has plantar fasciitis and he is loving them. He can get up in the morning without pain.

I decided to try SOLE and since I did I never looked back

As a bike racer I strive to get everything out of myself and to do this I look at every detail from what I eat to what equipment I use, so I decided to try SOLE and since I did I never looked back I went from my foot collapsing over the arch which is quite common in bike riders to having a well supported instep which in turn helped me get that little bit extra out of myself which is what every bike rider should want!

Bravo!

My physical therapist recommended these Sole footbeds while treating me for arthritis in my knees. He noted that I have high arches, and felt that these inserts might help with my foot pain as well as my knee pain. I was very skeptical as I had been fitted for custom orthotics by a podiatrist several years ago, and those inserts only added pain to the balls of my feet, for a cost of $300! But I tried these Sole inserts anyway. Unbelievable! The relief was so immediate, and has continued on. We just took a three week trip, and spent much time walking in New York City. Unforgiving pavement no problem. I am recommending Sole footbeds to my two children who are runners and to my sister who also has foot and knee pain. Very grateful, Sue from Santa Fe

I desparately needed some lasting and quality support

I was waiting for my custom orthotics to be refitted but trying to walk without any support caused my arches so much pain! I had tried the drug store variety insoles but nothing worked. Having Marfan's Syndrome ( genetic ligament disorder), I desparately needed some lasting and quality support. When I was shown the SOLE product I was hesitant, but once I had them in my shoes I could not have been happier! They are so wonderful and amazingly great for personal foot/arch support. I can not tell you how much pain relief they truly delivered for me!! Thank you.

Jonathan Pope


Years of use

Many years ago I had an accident on a motorcycle and injured my foot. I used to regularly visit my chiroprator to assist with issues caused from the injury and had medical footbeds prescribed. The sole ones are as good if not better than the prescribed ones and do a brilliant job of keeping my feet in shape and comfortable on those long working days. I chose these because I wear dress shoes and these fit well but provide the necessary support without intruding into the shoe space available. The other major benefit for me is I can put soles in all my shoes rather than having to swap insoles all the time. Well done Sole keep up the good work!

Joni


I just love the sandals

I have rhumetoid arthritis. My feet are sore most of the time. I have a very hard time walking in shoes. I noticed that my arch in my foot was falling. I need support. My doctor told me about your company. So I phoned and was so pleased with the help I got over the phone. The girl I spoke to was so helpful and very nice. I just love the sandals. I can walk quite well and will definately buy some insoles for my shoes. Thank you so very much for the wonderul service and great sandals. I have told many people about your company.

Unknown


They make my feet feel a lot better

I have had Plantar Fascitis for several years. It is hard to find sandals and shoes that work for me. I need a really strong arch, and these sandals work. I wear them around the house all of the time like slippers, and they make my feet feel a lot better! I will buy more in the future!

Tina


I am like a preacher when I tell everyone about your products!

I have to add that my friends and co-workers laugh that my 'new religion' has SOLE! I am like a preacher when I tell everyone about your products! I have been in constant pain for over 5 years and, while I am not pain-free, my feet felt better leaving work than they did going in to work on the first wearing! After about 3 weeks I cut my pain meds by half and had enough energy to DO things with my grandkids without having to rest every few minutes or take more meds. You are WONDERFUL!

Mike


I thought my days of being active were over

I cannot believe the pain relief i got after the first run I did with the SOLE Dean K. heat moldable insoles, I am a Disabled veteran from the United States Marine Corps, and wearing 2 special back supports ( 3 major spinal operations and shrapnel in my leg) I thought my days of being active were over, trying all kinds of insoles(too no avail)I tried these Insoles and WOW,I don't limp back home after a run, I smile alot-I mean ALOT less pain, my morale is higher and my activity level is awesome, Thanks Again SOLE,but sorry I must put the Credit to my GOOD LORD First, but you came thru with and Blue Ribbon Also !!! AWESOME-!!!!!!

Adam Elliosn


Great investment

I was in so much pain while training for a marathon that I went to a podiatrist. He fitted me with stiff, custom orthotics to manage arthritis in my foot and told me not to run again. When I quizzed him about exercise, he told me that if an exercise did not cause discomfort, I was free to pursue it. Thus emboldened, I decided to see whether Sole inserts for my moderate-support running shoes would let me continue running. They were a breeze to mold, are far more comfortable than the flimsy inserts that came with the shoes, and--woo hoo!--I can run again without pain. I won't push it, no more than 6-7 miles max, but but being able to continue to indulge in my 40+ year obsession with running is a great gift. I just bought two more pairs for other shoes. Great product!

David


His feet feel much better

I have already reccomended them to a co-worker at work because we work 12 hour shifts on concrete floors and he was having foot problems. He has already received his footbeds and is wearing them at work now and tells me his feet feel much better.

With your footbeds I can play tennis, hike and just enjoy my active life

I Have your soles in ALL MY SHOES Without your product I can not even walk without foot pain and other related pain up my leg and into my hip. With your footbeds I can play tennis, hike and just enjoy my active life. Before discovering SOLE I had tried every footbed I found but was always in pain as they did not work for me. I Bless the day I found you!!! I am so thankful for your footbeds. THANK YOU so much

Absolutely love them

Absolutely love them. The sandal is awesome to wear and I have no pain if I wear them instead of going barefoot

Chris


I was at first very skeptical. Not any more

I love your product. As a future podiatric physician with a specialty in biomechanics and sport medicine, I was at first very skeptical. Not any more. Sure, they may not be able to correct the most extreme of foot biomechanical problems, but they're very, very good none the less. If you ever need a podiatrist to consult or just to spread the good word, I'd be honored. We have a trail marathon coming up soon, and then a few mountains to climb this winter. Can't wait to put my Sole's into those boots!

Thanks to SOLE products and our good LORD in heaven and DK+ insole I CAN COPE!!!

Thanks to SOLE products and our good LORD in heaven and DK+ insole I CAN COPE!!! Today I received me Dean Karnazes custom insoles, I did mold them perfectly in the oven and fit them into my running shoes- very easy to do! I am a disabled Marine Corps Veteran (shot in the lower back, and received shrapnel in my legs in 1982 in Beirut Lebanon). After years of feeling sorry for myself and letting depression take hold of my life 2 years ago I set out to start running again. I started out slow with 3 back and hip supports, and tried hundreds of insoles- they really never made my run fun. BUT TODAY... I ran 90% pain free 12 miles to be exact! SOLE inserts are awesome! My feet didn't kill me, my back was okay, and my knees were good too! You have a great product which I would endorse to any athlete or anyone who just walks around. I almost cried when I got back from my run, I can't thank these DK+ insoles enough. Your product brought back a sense of pride and hapiness to do what I really enjoy- running! My two sons who are in high school shake their heads in disbelief that I go for a 10 mile runs now. My wife and my boys mother is serving in the US Army and is deployed in Iraq, and I write her and tell her that the running is going great. My running also helps me cope with her being deployed in a dangerous place. I have been spreading the word about your great product. Thank you and keep up the great insoles! Regards Mike

I've noticed major improvements in my feet

I've been having trouble with plantar faciatis for a year now. I've used a night boot, done exercises, taken anti-inflammatories, worn podiatrist-made inserts. Then I got my SOLE sandals, and I've noticed major improvements in my feet. I am also thrilled to have foot support when walking on the beach.

Mike


Have definitely improved my cycling

SOLE custom footbeds have definitely improved my cycling. i can go on long (greater than 50 mile) road rides without fear of uncomfortable foot pain. i can also tighten my cycling shoes properly, resulting in less movement of my foot inside the shoe, allowing me to pedal and climb much more efficiently. Thanks for making these footbeds!

Tina


I have had custom orthotics from my foot surgeon but they only provided minimal relief

I have had chronic foot pain since 2001(due to a broken navicular that refuses to heal & fallen arches). I have had custom orthotics from my foot surgeon but they only provided minimal relief. Your product is the ONLY insole that I have found that not only lessened the pain but actually has made my foot feel progressively better each day I wear it. I gave the insoles 2 weeks of constant wear before I contacted you, just to make sure they were really helping. Now I have been telling everyone at my job about them! I have been able to cut back on my pain medications (otc & perscription) and even contacted my GP and foot surgeon to let them know about you. I just wish I found you sooner.

Tony


Excellent footbeds

I've had foot issues for many years and about a year back I bought some new cycling shoes. Well the insole that is provided is not worth much so I began the search for a good cycling footbed. I was looking at custom footbeds, but didn't want to pay the high price. While shopping at a LBS I came across Sole and am so happy I did. These have been the greatest footbeds I've ever used in my cycling shoes. They work perfect and the simple molding process is a huge plus. With over 6000 miles on these I'm enjoying the ride more than ever.

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.

Matt


These sandals work better than anything I have tried before

Awesome product. I am in Rome Italy on vacation now and walking 10 miles a day in these flips - I am walking on concrete, cobblestones, and many uneven surfaces. I have low arches, mortons foot and these sandals work better than anything I have tried before. My back feels great - no knee issue and I am a big 300lb guy! WOW!

Curtis Driver


Better than custom

As a Physician Assistant and Athletic Trainer in the US Army I see soldiers with foot pain and overuse injuries everyday. With these footbeds I have gotten soldiers back to full activity faster than with custom orthotics costing 4-5X as much. I wouldn't use any orthotic myself than sole. Curtis Driver PA-C, ATC

Best $$ spent on flip flop sandals to date

I was diagnosed with sesamoiditis in addition to being completely flat footed. Therefore most shoes without backs or without sturdy bottoms irritated my toes. My condition improved over the last few months by wearing support shoes (e.g. Danskos), but I was going to need something for summer. I am a flip flop wearer, without a doubt, and was having a hard time deciding if I was going not wear flip flop sandals all summer or suffer through the pain. Luckily, when I read about your sandals, I decided that it was worth the $70 to try them. Best $$ spent on flip flop sandals to date. :)

Rich Guerra


Na I can't believe it

I work in a busy Emergency room, these inserts have eliminated back pain and foot pain. I am a big man, without pain..thank you very much

Robert Chatillion


I will never go back to flat sandals again

I will never go back to flat sandals again. My feet and back love the support of the Sole design. Well done! Nice logo too.

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!

Michael Kelley


fantastic product

I was a little skeptical that this product would help with my plantar fasciitis, but I thought I'd give it a try. I don't run as much as Dean Karnazes does (obviously), but recently after upping my mileage to about 25 miles per week I developed some severe pain in the heel and bottom of my right foot. I made an appointment with a podiatrist but wasn't able to get in for 2 weeks. So in the meantime I ordered a pair of these insoles. Shipping was very fast and after convincing my wife that I wasn't nuts, I put these in the oven and gave them a try. After no running at all for 2 weeks, I put these in my running shoes and went out for a 4 mile run. There was very minimal foot pain. Two days later, I went for a 6 mile run with no pain at all. Now I'm getting close to the 25 miles per week and am still having no issues. The longest I've run with these so far is 11 miles with no foot discomfort at all. These insoles are fantastic and I will definitely purchase another pair once these wear out. Thank you, Sole!

Bill Tank


Comfort

I haven't tried the black ones yet, but I think the brown ones from last summer are great. I have flat feet and the arch support that I need works great. I have had surgery on one foot for tarsal tunnel and plantar faciaitis in the other foot. These flip flops are as comfortable as my shoes w/ custom made orthotics. I live in the Bay Area in CA and I wanted to wear them every day and could have if it had been appropriate. I trust the black ones have a similar contour.

SOLE Slim Casual is my number one choice

I first want to thank you for once again allowing me to test your fine products! Footbeds are such an important aspect of footwear that I can't help wanting to be part of the improvement process in some way! I can honestly tell you that I have tested virtually all of the major and minor brands Out there and have settled on several that really help me with comfort and support. I have had better than average performance with SOLE, Shock Doctor, Down Under (used in my backpacking boots) and Super feet (this brand did great in my ice climbing boots). Presently, the SOLE Slim Casual is my number one choice in my back packing boot and day to day foot wear (even over my Ed Viesters), the Ed's would be next For backpacking then Shock doctors then Down Unders. I chose to fit the Casual into my Cabela's 8" hunting boot, which by the luck of the draw allows them to fit my HI-Tech casual trail shoes. There is a internal volume difference however, but usually different thicknesses of socks are also employed, so this presented no problem! In fact, I found a comfort increase with 8" inch boot out on the trail Snow shoeing (no kidding)! I have been testing snow shoes and socks all this winter so I added the casual's into the mix and was surprised with a greater level of comfort and support than I have had in the past (nice)! I believe there is an achievable synergy between sock footwear and footbeds and the foot, and when that is found the user is a very happy camper. With the Casual, I found the fitting and molding process simple and straight forward- just follow the instructions! Durability is without question as snowshoeing puts a great strain on footwear etc and the "Casual" is still looking new even after many hours and miles of pounding and sweat. There are no signs of abrasion, wear, tears or break down. Odor and heat control is awesome as is friction control which must have something to do with fit and support as my foot maintains its position inside the boot etc . Bottom line I have no blisters or hot spots and my socks are not exhibiting unusual wear. I think one major benefit I the custom fit along with carefully chosen materials as the user's foot is properly supported and placed which aid in eliminating foot related injuries from improper support etc. Metatarsal support could be a bit thicker but, I have had none of the usual burning from neuromas etc, which was initially brought on by the lightning strike that exited my foot. Out on the town the Casual adds comfort and support as well As my feet don't get tired and wore out when I'm shopping with my wife (who has an endless desire to go to every store in sight and this always kills my feet! I wonder if you guy's actually did me any favors here!). The Casual will add the necessities to foot wear that may be missing support and cushion (this is some thing that a sock can only in a limited way help with). I recommend that everyone should experience the SOLE footbeds and see for them selves if they don't receive a higher level of performance from their foot wear. For me , it means I can get out to those distant backcountry lakes quicker, safer and feel like fishing instead of nursing my feet and I like that!!!

Very painful case of Plantar Fasciitis

I have had a persistent and very painful case of Plantar Fasciitis for almost two years. It got so bad that I finally gave in and had surgery a little over a month ago. The pain was back almost immediately so I began my regime of buying every product that promised to help. I am so thankful that my first purchase was a pair of Sole foot beds. I felt relief almost instantly, so much so, that I just bought another pair and a pair of sandals. Thank you is all that is left to say.

Brandon


Really glad that I tried SOLE insoles

im really glad that i tried the SOLE insoles. i am a tennis teaching pro and my feet have been hurting for a year or two now and i have been to a couple of foot doctors and have been told i have plantar fasciatis and that i need orthotics. well to do the molding or whatever i needed done was going to cost around 400 dollars and i really didn't want to spend that much for insoles. so i was talking to an older friend of mine that i know through tennis and he is a millionare and he told me about SOLE and said he had like five pairs so i figured they had to be good b/c this guy could afford anything he wanted for his feet. so i tried them and now i love them. i teach tennis on a very popular high end tennis resort and see people from all over the world and i have recommended SOLE to everyone that has foot problems and i have passed out the little SOLE cards you all sent me. i hope to help you all out as much as these insoles have helped my feet. thanks so much. i know this is a bit of a corny story but who cares. thanks again! oh and i also really liked that when i called your number, a real person answered! i was shocked. that never happens anymore. good stuff!

I can work out, walk and be on my feet all day

Please explain your foot-related problems prior to purchase: A. I could hardly walk as my feet were putting out the alighment of my knees(and the rest of my body). I was sent to Poditarists and had more than one pair of orthotics made. some of them helped a bit but a lot of them made it so I could hardly walk at all and had so much more pain.This was very costly also. Then I went to a Chiropracter who works on pressure points. It is a total different way of alighning ones body. When I stated seeing my Chiropracter I stopped wearing my orthopics as I would just be put into balance and my orthopics would put me right out of sorts again. But I needed something and as I had been trying out the SOLE INSOLES, I started to wear them daily. It is hard to get the thinner insoles, as Work World's mainly sell the thick ones. So thanks to the staff from Sole in Calgary for mailing me out a pair of red Soles. I can work out, walk, and be on my feet all day and my legs get tired but I do not have the knee pain as the knee is getting stronger. The doctors kept telling me I was just getting old and to expect the pain and knees going. But I kept thinking NO they are wrong. There has to be something out there and it is such a simple thing, A insole that works. More people have to learn not to give up when they are in pain and in there heart know that there knees are turning in because of the way there feet are or there back or hips or neck or so many parts of the body hurt or you are taking pain killers just to get through the day. Begin at your Feet and if at first you are not getting any leadway, don't give up. Keep trying. Go to the Sole Site, or just try a pair, often the body has to be put into alighment first then with the insoles life will begin. And I feel the insoles should be sold in some shoe stores. Often the sales clarks get to know your feet. Find a establised store and get to know them like you do a Doctor.

Couldn't Skate Without Them

These footbeds are tremendous! I have a pair in my CCM hockey skates and my K2 inlines, and I cannot imagine ever skating without them again. They have improved my ice skating by giving me more power and a much better feel for the ice; and have aleviated the foot pain I used to experience after only a few miles on inline skating. I can't wait for the coming spring as I plan to skate my first marathon in May.

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.

The sole product I bought has worked wonders

Planter Faciitis (SP) which wouldn't go away. a friend recommended these and sent me the website. The sole product I bought has worked wonders. They were very easy to conform to the foot and have fixed my sore heel problem to where I can now play competitive tennis with no problem. Thanks for this product.

Tennis and Hiking

These are outstanding for my competitive tennis and rigorous hiking endevours. They have virtually eliminated the foot problems I was having - sore heel, sore arches, and sore feet in general. Thanks for a great Product.

Far Exceeded my Expectations

My company moved to a new building in June 2008. The floor are hard concrete. I began having foot pain(plantar fasciitis) in my right foot. After a few months I began to walk with a limp and by the end of my shift my ankle was swelling and in alot of pain. The price was reasonable. I felt I would try this before paying hundreds of dollars on custom orthotics. Having two coworkers highly recommend the product also played a big role. After wearing the footbeds for two weeks, I no longer was limping around at work. I could walk normal. Before I was trying to walk without my heel touching the ground because the pain was so great. After a month of wearing the footbeds, my ankle no longer swelled. After 5 weeks, I no longer had to wear my ankle brace. This product far exceeded my expectations.

Twelve Hour Days

I work in an emergency room department as a physician assistant and am on my feet 12 hour days. Your inserts are life savers. I recommend your product to other co-workers and patients. Thanks.

The DKs are Awesome

i had sesamoiditis in my right foot... underneath my big toe. i'm addicted to tennis, so this was a serious problem, and it just refused to heal... i finally started looking into getting a custom orthotic, but i don't have the best health insurance right now, so the cost would have been a bit much. i did some research online, and your insoles were recommended on a message board. i order a pair of DK insoles and they were amazing. I ordered a second pair, and i don't wear shoes unless i have them in there. My foot isn't completely healed yet, but I've made a lot of progress since i started using the SOLE DK and i experience no pain or discomfort at all while i'm wearing them. i absolutely love your product. the DKs are awesome. i will definitely buy a few more and have wholeheartedly recommended them to a few people.

Running Comfortably

I have used your product for a few years now and am completely sold on how it has improved the pain I used to experience due to flat/pronated feet. I am a runner and your product has allowed me to continue running comfortably. Thank you for a wonderful product!

The SOLE Custom Footbeds have helped enormously

I could hardley walk because my feet hurt so much. My friend told me about SOLE custom footbeds and where to get them. I think my feet were hurting because I had my knee replaced in July after years of suffering with my knee out of place, so my feet probably had been compensating for it. Now that my knee is normal, my feet aren't. The SOLE custom footbeds have helped enormously. I still have heel pain and my feet tend to hurt when they are tired at night, but at least I can walk without the paid I had been experiencing. Thank you.

Michelle


Love them!

I have plantar fasciitis and I had the footbeds. I love flip flops and that was one of the things I missed most. I had such great luck with the footbeds I decided to try the flip flops, and let me tell you I was not disappointed. I can wear those and my foot doesn't hurt at all. My Mom and Aunt also have plantar fasciitis and they bought a pair and had the same results. I highly recommend these!

Jessica


No further issues with footpain

I have had plantar fascitis in the past. Initially I wore a custom orthotic, however, as soon as the Sole product became available I have been using the Sole footbed. I have had no further issues with foot pain since wearing the Sole footbed.

Randall Sparks


Army boots and plantar fasciitis

I have plantar fasciitis. I require custom orthotics, but insurance companies suck swampwater. My custom orthotics fell apart so I tried the Sole brand insoles after finding them in the PX. These things fit like a glove, hold arches where they need to be and all my foot pain has gone. I have about 6 pairs of these things and I'm sold on sole.

Jim Rabbitt


I couldn't be happier

The service and product I received is much better quality than I expected. I'll give you a little background. I suffered a bad sprain in my foot while joggin in october and had to go to the Sports Doctor for cortisone shots. That solved the immediate problem but I was told I would have to wear orthotics and he was glad to measure me up and order them. I had insurance and it was going to cost me only $20 for a co-pay. This involved two more visits at $20 a pop. He told me it would be 14 days. Well it was 5 weeks and still no call. When I reached him he told me he had a problem with the manufacture and just be patient. I cancelled the order and told him what I thought of his service. You were referred to me by a friend who just bought orthotics from a sports doctor and was not real happy with the product which I found to be chinsy. I did a little research on the net and thought you had what I needed. I ordered the thicker liners because not only do I run about 3 miles a day but I spend a lot of time on my feet at work. I have used them for about 3 weeks and couldn't be happier.

Scott


Great product!

I have to tell you, I'm thrilled with your product. I got married about 2 years ago, and typically, I put on about 20 pounds. I've been a casual runner (about 10 miles a week), and since I've gained weight, I started to develop some Plantar's Faciitis in my right foot. I subscribe to Runner's World, and they had an article on your product, so I purchased a pair of them to see if they would help.... THEY ARE WONDERFUL!!!... my feet don't throb after my run, and with just a little stretching, etc. they are making a world of difference. Great Product! I plan to buy another pair in a few months when I purchase new shoes.

Karen M


Your feet and legs will thank you

A must for anyone who is on their feet! I'm a runner and started having foot pain in various areas. This SOLE Custom Footbeds solved the aches and pains. My hip problem also disappeared. I own 2 pair and wear one for my workouts and one for everyday wear. Your feet and legs will thank you.

I am now pain free once again

I am a 52 year young runner here in the desert of Arizona. I have been running since high school and still enjoy the competition of road, track and trail running. I win or place in my age group most of the time. Yes, I have had my down times. Some due to over training and some due to "I'll just sleep a little longer." Recently I developed a Metatarsal injury on my left foot. I went through the routine of resting, icing and stretching without success. I thought for sure that I would have to take an extended time off from running. I tried various inserts to provide more protection for the foot. I even had a custom insert made by an orthopedic doctor. None of these attempts provided the protection I needed. On a visit to my local Performance Footwear running store, I noticed the "Your SOLE" display. I thought I had to give them a try. Not only did SOLE Custom Footbeds allow me to resume my normal training routine, it also allowed my metatarsal to recover and I am now pain free once again. Thank you "Your SOLE" for helping me to continue doing the sport I have loved for so long."

Geoff Prescott


The sense of relief was virtually immediate

I'm an active 53-year-old living in beautiful British Columbia. I overdid it on a couple of extended hikes this past summer and developed significant foot arch pain, something I had never experienced before. Being an avid hiker, skier, and mountain biker, I was pretty bummed out. I had resigned myself to a period of enforced rest and the purchase of expensive orthotics when the folks at my local Valhalla Pure store suggested I give the Sole footbed a try. I did, and I'm not making this up when I tell you the sense of relief was virtually immediate. I installed the footbeds in my running shoes on Friday, wore them around the house Saturday, and went golfing with my son on Sunday, pain free! I plan to get another pair for my ski boots as well. Thank you."

SOLE results in less fatigue

Wobble-naught CAD fitting & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish use Sole as a bio-feedback device. We want all our dealers to use them. Misaligned joints are very common in fitting business. Sole assist our CAD to correct alignment issues, providing pain relief & wear and tear to the body. With the correct bike setup, Sole footbeds allows the cyclists to get on the pedal stroke early and stay on it longer. We suggest the Sole due to its ability to mold to the needs of many different shoe types. You get a better inteface of shoe and human foot. The advantage is it is not made by just standing or sitting in a static position, but like "Speed balancing tires", while you pedal. After we have the cleat correct and the bike dialed to the human to the milimeter, then we have them mount the bike while in a trainer and mold the Sole while they pedal. It's that simple! The Sole footbed improves performance as it reduces the lag time of getting on the pedal storke. Using our Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish, we teach pedaling from the arches rather than the toes or heel and the only way you can get the feedback to the brain is by having a footbed making contact w/ the arch. The skeletal muscle system is a voluntary system; that is, it needs an intact nerve supply to contract, and does so mostly as a result of conscious direction from the brain. If you can't feel your arch, you can't determine how to move your best! By using our Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish, we can see the difference a Sole footbed makes. The electrical activity of muscles responding to nevous stimuli during human movement can be monitored with our technique call electromyography (EMG). We measure in millionths of a volt (microvolts)! The greater the intensity of contraction, or tension, the greater the electrical output. The sEMG can also reveal the declining output as muscular fatigue takes place. Without Sole, the muscles don't fire as well, and faster fatigue is the result. With the Sole, the results are the muscles start firing better and fatigue less, and pedal performance comes forth!

Keep up the good work

As a running specialty retailer, I can say without a doubt that SOLE Custom Footbeds have filled a niche in my store. We have fit runners, walkers, and working people with very positive results. The fact that SOLE fits a wider variety of foot types and shapes than most other orthotics sets them apart. So far, we have had very few returns of your product and no problem getting credit from your company on those units. Keep up the good work. Thank you.

Kipp Carver


I have recommended SOLE footbeds to several of my customers

Before I tried SOLE footbeds, my right foot hurt so bad I had a noticeable limp. After using the SOLE footbed, the foot pain disappeared. My golf game has also improved. I feel much more solid over the ball. I have recommended SOLE footbeds to several of my customers. They too, seem to like SOLE footbeds as much as I do. I think all shoes should have SOLE. Thanks a lot.

Ted McGreer


I've sold a pile of sandals

As a Specialty Footwear Retailer, I have access to virtually every shoe on the market. When Sole decided to launch the Platinum Sandal, I was very sceptical of an $80 sandal. In fact, I decided not to order any for my store because I felt the price was just too high. When my sales rep at Sole asked me to simply try one pair for myself, I thought, fair enough I'll test them out. Two months later, I've sold a pile of these sandals, and I've not taken my pair off my feet. Keep in mind I personally own over 300 pairs of shoes. This sandal is biomechanically perfect, great for people with or without foot pain, and is bar none the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. Another great product from Sole!

Michael Sweeny


I'd recommend your product to anyone

I have been a recreational runner for the past 10 years. The last 4 years have been spent dealing with Achilles tendinitis and plantar faciitis in my left foot and chronic plantar faciitis in my right foot. I have had cortisone shots, night splints, MRI's, anti-inflammatory, x-rays, physical therapy and numerous sets of custom orthotics. Nothing worked. I was ready to sell my treadmill and give up on running altogether. This past spring I read about a free consultation at a running store in Orland Park,IL. They were offering foot evaluations with podiatrist and physical therapist at the store. Upon evaluating me, they recommended your product for arch support. After all the time and money I spent, what's another 40 bucks I thought. If it doesn't work - I'm done running. Period! Needless to say they worked. I ran my first half marathon in May. I'll be fifty in November and always wanted to run a marathon. I am training for the Chicago Marathon in October. I just ran an 18 mile long run and feel great. I'd recommend your product to anyone.

Martha B


I love my SOLEs

I love my SOLES! My plantar faciitis is much better. I have had it for two years and have tried many different orthotics and wraps. Now, I only notice foot pain when I wear dress shoes that cannot handle the SOLES. Keeping my arch in the correct position has enabled me to be on my feet much longer without pain. The dress SOLES have enabled me to use good arch support in most of my shoes.

Rudy Martini


After heat molding, the footbeds fit my feet perfectly

I recently purchased the Sole footbeds and placed them in a pair of walking shoes. I have a problem with Plantar Fasciitis of the heel. Since placing the Sole footbeds into my shoes and doing a few exercises the pain in my foot began to disappear. I heated the Soles in the oven at 200 deg F as per directions. The soles fit my feet perfectly..I would certainly recommend the Sole FootBeds to anyone having problems with Bone Spurs (Plantar Fasciitis)....Yours truly,

Rob Allen


I wish I had found these sooner

I just recently beat a bad case of plantar fasciitis using cortisone shots and rehab. I was also fitted for a pair of custom orthotics to help prevent a recurrence. However, due to their rigid composition, they don't fit in all of my shoes. As a result of this, I decided to buy a pair of the SOLE Softec Ultra footbeds to use as a substitute in those shoes. I've used SuperFeet, SofSol, and Hapad in the past in an attempt to alleviate general foot pain caused by standing or walking too much, but none of them ever seemed to help. Therefore, my expectations weren't very high for the SOLE footbeds...I figured I would be satisfied if all they gave me were some extra arch and heel support to help keep the plantar fasciitis at bay. However, after a couple of long days on my feet, I realized that not only had these footbeds given me the extra support I was looking for, but they also made a significant difference in the amount of general foot pain caused by too much time on my feet. I only wish I had found these sooner! Thanks!

Beth Ellis


The solution to my plantar fasciitis

These insoles are the solution to my plantar fasciitis foot problem. Thank you!

Laura Johnson


I think I should be thanking you

I think I should be thanking you. I have Plantar Fasciitus in both feet and my doctor recommended SOLE Custom Footbeds instead of special orthotics. I was buying them from the "Naperville Running Co." but decided to go to your web site instead. I tell everyone I hear has a foot problem about them. I think they're GREAT. I will continue to use them.

Bobby G. Tindal


A great product that can be worn out of the box

I have used many off-the-shelf arch supports over the past ten years as an Orthotist for residents of Kansas. These people are soldiers and I see a variety of foot types. I average about 90 patients per week with approximately 70% having foot related problems. Most of these problems are associated with hyper-mobile joints of the foot causing a flattened arch. With most shoes or boots this flattened arch position is present due to inadequate insoles that are not conformed to every persons feet. Some of the problems are plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, shin splints, knee pain and sometimes hip and low back pain. SOLE has come up with a great product that can be worn out of the box or heat molded to fit a persons feet. These orthotics have proven to provide the contour that people need in their shoes and I often get requests for more than one pair. SOLE Custom Footbeds are a cost effective way to reduce the hyper-mobility of the feet comfortably without adjustments.

John M. Lucas


They proved flawless!

Sir, I've recently returned from some of the toughest training the US Army could offer.I found myself in the wildest country-side with hills and valleys. After purchasing 2 pair of your insoles, I decided to try them out in this environment. They proved flawless! I never received a blister, hot-spot, or even cramp in either foot the entire duration. My feet were wet everyday, climbing mountains, hills, valleys, walking long distances for hours and hours. And yet still no friction on the feet! These are by far the best purchase I ever made for the care of my feet. I can put these soles in any boot, and I can get the same results, comfort, and support. I appreciate and respect your product and advise it to all I work with. When I see these for sale in the PX, I'll surely get more! Thanks again,

I recommend SOLE to everyone that has asked me about boots and foot comfort

I recommend SOLE to everyone that has asked me about boots and foot comfort. This is why: I completed the Special Forces selection, class 007-03, on 26 June 2003. We walked/ran/crawled over 300 miles in 26 days. 320 people started and about 100 were selected. Of those people I finished 6th overall. Though I am proud of this, I am not bragging - it is partially a testament to your product. They were not the key to me finishing - a lot of mental/physical training and toughness went into that - but when other men were quitting or barely hanging on because of foot problems, I was walking like a champ. No hotspots, no blisters, absolutely no foot issues at all. The insoles were priceless. I would have paid $80 a piece. As a an Airborne Ranger, future SF officer, and absolute fanatic about boots, socks, insoles, and foot comfort in general, I can say that your product is a key ingredient to superior comfort and performance. What more testing can you ask for? Many of my friends and I have put them through SFAS with spectacular results. If every soldier were issued 2 pairs of your orthotics the Army would save 10 times as much in medical costs and increased soldier motivation/performance as it cost to issue them. (Product highlights) Most comfortable insole ever used in any shoe/boot. All my footwear will have them soon. Very durable. Even after sand, mud, water, hear, cold, kept their form did not get torn up when properly maintained (kept fairly clean, dried when wet). Did not slip or "ride up" heel of boot as many insoles do after hours of constant movement. You can't fight if you can't get to the battle. INVEST IN YOUR FEET. RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!!

SOLE has changed my feet forever

I was recently down at the Boston Marathon and I talked to Matt Chestnut, one of your employees. I wanted to thank him because my feet are now 100% better thanks to him. I met Matt in the lobby of the hotel and we chatted for a while over a drink and then the topic of foot health came into play. I told him that I could hardly walk after I ran a Marathon for about 2 weeks and he mentioned SOLE. I usually use custom made orthodics but I find they are too rigid for my feet. People pushing their own product usually puts me off but he came across in a genuine fashion and I now owe him for his honest and help. I came by his booth the next day and Matt took the time to fit my shoes and explain everything further from the previous night. Matt really knew his stuff and SOLE has changed my feet forever. Thanks SOLE.

Angela Shaw


I love my new footbeds not only for how they feel, but also for the price.

I am VERY satisfied with my footbeds. I paid $300 about 5 years ago for custom made orthotics and they were worn out and me feet hurt. I found SOLE footbeds while researching another expensive orthotic that I was thinking of ordering, buy they were so expensive. I read your guarantee and decided I had nothing to lose, and a lot to gain ($). My feet weren't instantly completely pain free, but they didn't hurt any worse, I feel strongly that if I hadn't had these new inserts that I would have really been hurting after that walk. Over the next week, the pain in my feet went away and it's been 6 weeks and the pain hasn't returned! I love my new footbeds not only for how they feel, but also for the price.

I can stand and walk without crying or pain

I bought my first pair on Valentine's Day and my second pair of Sole Orthotics last month as a spare to use in my gardening shoes. I was diagnosed with Morton's Neuroma and I had severe pain while trying to stand and walk and couldn't wear any pair of shoes without whimpering. After getting 3 injections in my foot with no relief, I was finally given the name of Fit-Right Northwest to obtain a special pair of shoes. I ended up getting a pair of Brooks with a wider box. The shoes alone didn't stop the pain and discomfort but as soon as the salesperson put in my very first pair of Sole Orthotics and I tried walking, I was totally amazed at the difference. I was so happy and so thrilled that I told the salesperson I could hug him for the pain relief. He also put a little cushion on your Sole at the ball of the feet and wearing the new shoes with your orthotics since Valentine's Day has made a world of difference to me and the ability to stand and walk without crying and without pain. So I wish to say a special "Thank You" for creating such a good, wonderful, and reasonably priced orthotic. Thank You

Kathy Livingston


We can now do things that involve walking

My Husband doesn't type, so he told me to send this. Your insoles have been a God send. I prayed for him to get help. He could only work about 2 hours a day. His foot hurt so bad in the morning that he almost had to hop. Now he can work 5+ hours and doesn't hardly limp. It is night and day different. He used to say his foot was killing him. Now I hardly ever hear him complain. The doctors had x-rayed his foot and said there was nothing wrong with it. Our insurance is terrible so he didn't want to go back. He is a different person now. We can now do things that involve walking. It had hurt for several years and he was resigned to living with the pain. Now he doesn't have to. He has told everyone about your company. Thank you so much.

Michelle Graham


I have even started running again because of your product

I suffered from heel spurs, plantar fasciltis, heel pain, extreme pain for over 2 years. I went to a podiatrist and even got $400 pair of custom orthotics. Nothing helped. I would literally crawl to the bathroom some mornings because the pain was so unbearable. I had all but given up to the fact that it was something I would have to live with. My chiropractor then recommended I try your insoles. I ordered all three sizes. I was so tired of wearing tennis shoes, was hoping with your thin inserts I could wear my dress shoes again without having the pain more severe the next morning. After ONLY 3 DAYS of wearing your inserts, I had NO PAIN!!!! I still wear your Soles everyday, and can wear ALL my shoes now, and still NO PAIN!!! Wish I would have known about your product 2 years ago. I have even started running again because of your product.

Kari


I absolutely love my footbeds

I absolutely love my footbeds. These are the second pair I have purchased and for the first time in my life, my feet don't hurt after running or walking. I've had semi-custom orthodics made by a physical therapist due to my excessive pronation but they never could get them quite right and after 3 tries, I switched to my sole footbeds and have been very happy. I use them in my running shoes and casual shoes. Next I'm going to get a pair for my dress shoes and casual shoes. And I've told pretty much anyone that would listen to me about them and how much I like them. Before I used them , I didn't know that your feet didn't have to hurt!

Sandy Ainsfield


I've always loved to dance

I am 60 years old and have always loved dancing. Rhythm tap and salsa are my favorite pastimes now and I am able to dance several times a week without any pain. I thoroughly recommend the use of your "Sole Orthotics" to anyone suffering from pain from a heel spur.

Sharron Burnard


These insoles are better than sex

I wanted you to know that these insoles are better than sex. In the past year or so my feet have been killing me, my face probably looked like a prune with the pain, due only in part to high arches and insteps and over pronation of the left foot, due to poor fitting and non supporting athletic shoes by inexperienced shop staff. However, I had tried spenco and superfeet, the latter being ok, but not having any metatarsal cushioning. Now to sole orthotics, I bought a pair 3 days ago, and the relief was immediate. I now find myself running up stairs rather than creeping up like a crab to the hip pain; Enough said. "The best and better than sex" should be your slogan. Of course, just for people with foot problems. Thanks.

Barry Homan


I really love these insoles

I really love these insoles. I have had bad foot problems and since wearing these my feet feel much better. This is why I'm buying a second pair...Thanks.

Chrystal Strauss


Thanks so much for such a GREAT product and the prompt service

I've suffered from foot pain for a short time, but long enough to know that if your feet hurt, you hurt all over!! After being on my feet all day on cement I was ready to try anything. Found your site on the net and decided to give it a try. Ordered them online and watched the FedEx site for delivery time. Couldn't wait to try them. The day they were due to arrive we had a snow storm here in Iowa and I had just presumed they wouldn't be delivered due to the weather conditions. That night I checked the FedEx sight one last time and to my surprise it said they were on my front porch !! I couldn't wait to get them on and after only the second day with them-- I hate to take them off!!! They feel so good and my feet don't hurt!! Thanks so much for such a GREAT product and the prompt service.

Dr. William McDonald


I find that I use your products for just about everything related to mechanics

I find that I use your products for just about everything related to mechanics - plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, but I also found that I'm able to utilize these and modify them often for types of tendonitis problems, shins splints, and mechanical types of things like neuromas and bunions and hammer toes. I'm able to add some padding to them and also mold them a little bit to the patient. I think they've held up very well. I've been using them since last summer at the APMA show and I think they're an excellent over-the-counter product.

I just find these SOLES the best for my knees and foot pain

We use a lot less Motrin now!

I want to add another sport to your list - soccer. These SOLE inserts have been great to put in my teenagers' soccer cleats. They both experienced a lot of heel pain from running in cleats all of the time & we've found that even the best soccer cleats just don't give good support. The SOLE inserts have totally eliminated the foot pain that was just part of the soccer season for them. We use a lot less Motrin now!

David Herlihy


I am very pleased with my SOLE footbeds

I am very pleased with my SOLE footbeds. I had tendonitis in my left transverse arch from going too fast on a fairly steep downhill hike this fall. The pain, and fear of further injury, had me pretty much sidelined. I fitted the SOLE footbeds and immediately was back to walking 30 min. each morning and each evening without pain. Thanks for a great product.

Melba Barcena


My feet would hurt so bad that I could hardly walk

My Doctor recomended your product and I have been very pleased with it. My feet would hurt so bad that I could hardly walk. On one occasion they were hurting so bad that I had to use a walker just to get out of bed and walk around. Then the Doctor suggested that I get your insoles for my shoes and they are working great. Thank you for your great insoles.

Kipp Carver


My golf game has improved

Before I tried SOLE footbeds, my right foot hurt so bad I had a noticeable limp. After using the SOLE footbed, the foot pain disappeared. My golf game has also improved. I feel much more solid over the ball. I have recommended SOLE footbeds to several of my customers. They too, seem to like SOLE footbeds as much as I do. I think all shoes should have SOLE. Thanks a lot.

Your product has cured me

Before your product I could hardly walk without great shooting pain in my feet. Your product has cured me. i feel like superman with your insoles. i refuse to wear a pair of shoes without your product. you people are truly sent from God.

Marjorie


My foot doctor recommended your footbeds

I have/had tendinitis in both feet...don't remember the name of the particular tendon. It had been bothering me for MONTHS and my foot doctor recommended your footbeds. They have made a BIG difference! I still feel a bit of discomfort but if I had to give a number I'd say it's 90% better! THANK you!

Marsha Voight


Thank you so much for this product

I purchased a pair of the heatable soles yesterday on the advice of my orthopedic surgeon. Here is some background about me. I have worked in a factory for 30 years. My feet are shot!! I have arthritis in both feet and ankles. I have fallen arches so badly that I have had to have foot fusion on the right foot. I now have a 3 inch screw from my heel to my ankle. I have had joint replacement on the great toe of the left foot. I also have had polio as a child. I have lived with foot pain for over 35 years....until NOW! I worked all day today and I have NO PAIN in my right foot at all. My left one is sore because I had surgery just four weeks ago. This is a real miracle for me. I have been thanking God all day for these soles. You may think I am exaggerating but you have no idea how much pain I have been in until now. I went to the store and bought a second pair right after work!!! Thank you so much for this product. I have told all my co-workers that have foot pain about these soles.

Cheryl Black


Thank you very much for making a difference in the way I walk and work!

I bought my first pair of Sole insoles to wear inside my new workboots for heavy, recreational gardening. I saw them in a store the day I bought my new boots, and I bought them because they were stiff enough to provide support but not so bulky that they changed the way my boots fit. The fit in the arch supports my heel and has resulted in my planter fasciitis improving to the point it has virtually disappeared and I have no more pain when I get up in the morning. Initially, I thought that the price was high, but compared to custom orthotics, the price was very reasonable and once I wore them for a full day the first time with no 'breaking in' time needed, I realized they are worth much, much more. I bought another pair to put inside the shoes I will be wearing to work as school starts up in September and will necessitate me being on my feet most of the day. I have a pair in my golf shoes, and will move them to my curling shoes when that season starts up! Thank you very much for making a difference in the way I walk and work!

Mike Mannion


Thanks for an outstanding product!

I am 66 years old and every day go on 6 - 10 mile walks. A while back I developed a case of plantar fasciitis/heel spurs on my left foot. I tried everything - rest, ice, stability shoes, motion control shoes - but nothing seemed to help. Then I read in Trail Runner's Magazine about the Dean Karnazes moldable insoles that your company makes. I decided to try a pair. And after about two weeks of using them in my walking shoes (actually I walk in running shoe and trail running shoes) the plantar fasciitis/heel spur problem has all but totally disappeared. I liked then so much and they worked so well that I just purchased my second pair. They are everything that you say about them - they deliver as promised, and I will continue to use them on all my walks to prevent more foot problems. Thanks for an outstanding product!

John Stetson


We have about 700 miles to go and I look forward to each step on my Sole footbeds

The Globalwarming 101 expedition just arrived in Qikiqtarjuaq after a rather arduous crossing through Pangnirtung pass. During our journey here, we encountered temperatures as cold as minus fifty fahrenheit and winds as high as seventy miles per hour. The terrain was as rough as we have ever seen for dogsled travel. We spent ten hours a day on our feet either skiing or running, depending on conditions. I am very thankful to have had my Sole footbeds in my Mukluks. The support they provide, in addition to the added insulation they give, are the perfect fit for serious foot care. After 100,000 miles of dogsled travel all over the planet it feels great to finally find the right footbed for traveling in some of the most extreme conditions on earth. We have about 700 miles to go and I look forward to each step on my Sole footbeds.

SOLE Custom Footbeds are awesome!

I have suffered from fibromyalgia, ethromyalgia, planter facitis and knee/hip pain for over 15 years. I have spent hundreds of dollars on orthopedic insoles that have done nothing. I was just about to give up on even walking, when I saw your product advertised on the internet. The SOLE Custom Footbeds are awesome! I wear them in my shoes everyday! In fact, I have 3 pair of the SOLE ULTRA Softec so that I can leave them in my shoes and not have to keep yanking them out and replacing them in my other shoes. At 44 years of age, even my walking had been limited by my daily plantar fasciitis and knee pain during and following my short walks outside. I now have absolutely no pain in my arches. And, my knee pain is gradually getting better. Yet, there is no cure for my other disabilities, The SOLE footbeds have truly helped me get around the house and even walking around outside! P.S. They are easy to heat in the oven - and even if you don't, they are still comfortable just as they are right out of the package and into your shoes! Thanks!

They work fantastic

They work fantastic. I am a distance runner who is training for Boston. I also am 5' 9" and 200 lbs. I have a lot of strain on my arches. Before I started using the SOLE Custom Footbeds I had problems with Plantar fasciitis in my left arch. Since I put the Footbeds in I have had no problems what so ever. I am averaging about 40-50 miles per week in them. I did a 22 mile training run yesterday without any problems. I love your product and would highly recommend them to anyone.

The "SOLE" was the only one that felt comfortable.

After suffering from Plantar Fasciitis pain to the point where I thought I might have to resort to a doctor visit, a friend suggested that I try the local running products store. The "SOLE" was the only one that felt comfortable. I have been wearing them for 4 months now and have been pain free for quite some time. What I consider the most dramatic result though, was that after only 2 or 3 days of wear, I could get out of bed in the morning and walk with only minimal pain and by the evening I could also walk comfortably. Thanks for the great product.

My feet would hurt so bad that I could hardly walk

My Doctor recomended your product and I have been very pleased with it. My feet would hurt so bad that I could hardly walk. On one occasion they were hurting so bad that I had to use a walker just to get out of bed and walk around. Then the Doctor suggested that I get your insoles for my shoes and they are working great. Thank you for your great insoles.

Up until two months ago my feet were feeling the almost 15 years of pounding endured in the Worlds finest...The United States Marine Corps

Up until two months ago my feet were feeling the almost 15 years of pounding endured in the Worlds finest...The United States Marine Corps. Two months ago I purchased a set of yoursole insoles for my boots. After a few days I was sold, every pair of boots I own now has a set yoursole insoles inside. I have tried multiple types of insoles from other companies and they cannot measure up to yoursole. They made my boots feel like running shoes. Your product was simple to use and I will tell everyone I serve with about them. Semper Fi.

A year ago my feet looked like a war zone.

A year ago my feet looked like a war zone. The week between long runs wasn't enough to remedy the huge blisters I was getting on the sides of my feet and under many of my toes. The toes on the right foot suffered and the side of my left foot never could callus! My friend Jane kept talking about her magic socks - I'd tried everything - body glide, alcohol soaks - you name it. So I went to my local running store, Colorado Running Company and told Alicia I wanted some magic socks because Jane swore by them. She knew exactly what I was talking about. And the magic socks were good - but the really amazing thing is that magic Sole socks combined with the magic Sole insert mean that I am blister free - well except for the pinky toe on the left foot that I step on for 26.2 miles! Seriously, I had a massage today, just two weeks after running the Boston Marathon and my massage therapist, having seen the horror of my feet after previous marathons, marveled at them. She said that few marathoners feet looks this good. I'm running in the same shoes - training shoes and race day shoes - that I was a year ago. The difference - my Sole socks and my Sole inserts. I had enough other aches and pains to worry about during the marathon - it's nice to know that I don't have to worry about my feet anymore. I'm a believer - magic does work, especially when it's called Sole.

Wish we would have bought two pairs!

My daughter started having problems with her arches and her feet hurting. Our athletic trainer here at school suggested buying a pair of the insoles. The only problem---we wish we would have bought two pairs!!

The SOLE footbeds have reduced the pain I feel by 70% to 90%

I'm a type II insulin dependent diabetic and have been for over 40 years so I have "very sensitive feet". Also while trail running last October I jumped over a down tree and landed on a broken glass bottle. I gashed the ball of my right foot. It took several weeks to heal and I still get some "burning and pain" on the ball of my right foot. The Sole footbeds have reduced the pain I feel by 75% to 90% dependent on the weather (worse when it's hot) and the surface I run on. I mix road, crushed cinder and trail. I run 25 to 45 miles per week and am training for my first trail ultra (50K) on October 5th, 2008.

They are just like a second skin

I've been using SOLE footbeds and socks while training on a variety of surfaces (e.g. sidewalks, roads, mulch trails) in mild as well as cold weather. The footbeds are supportive without feeling rigid, and with them I have not had the blister problems I sometimes developed when running with my shoes' original footbeds. Since they are so lightweight I can wear them for long training runs and not feel as much fatigue as I have with other footbeds I've tried. I've worn the Air-Flow Cooling socks for a couple of road races and like their "breathability." They are just like a second skin. The Dual-Layer socks are my favourites for winter running--I've been comfortable in temperatures down to -15C with them.
