Got me running again
I developed a nasty case of Plantar Fasciitis. I was hobbling around until a friend recommended SOLE insoles to me. I found a store nearby and was walking pain free in a few days and running in a couple of weeks. I have a pair for every shoe. I tried Custom made insoles and they were clumsy and painful. SOLE insoles felt natural and got me running again.
Great for 4E
Great footbeds for 4E shoes. Very comfortable. I've found they fit more like factory insoles vs the medium thickness SOLE footbeds.
These are the ones
I have tried lots of different insoles and none work as well as SOLE footbeds. These footbeds are even better than my custom made insoles. No more pain at the end of the work day. Thanks!
I was having occasional pain in my feet, but not anymore. These insoles are great at providing firm support in shoes that don’t require added cushioning. I wear them in my running shoes, and I can go anywhere without pain.
My feet don’t hurt
Absolutely love these Footbeds I’ve been using them for years and I would not trust any other insole ever
Podiatrist recommended these to relieve bunion discomfort. These fit perfectly into my NB shoes. The insoles definitely help keep me mobile. Great product.
A Foot Saver!
These thin footbeds were the answer when custom orthotics did not work for me. They are flexible and give good support. I wear them in shoes that have removable insoles and in roomy footwear that I cannot remove the insoles.
Great value product
I bought a set of these as I wear Blundstone boots . Anyone that has ever owned these boots knows the insoles they come with are disposable crap. Instantly made them comfortable again.
My first pair of Sole footbeds came in a pair of Haglofs. Stroll,GTX. It was like walking on clouds from day one...I wore them every wet,muddy or cold day for roughly five years at which point I thought they couldn't last much longer and devoted them to strictly work boots. Long story short,I had a job that required a lot of mud and water remediation and I wore those boots/footbeds for six days all day,knee deep in mud and water,when I was done I thought for sure they're done and would fall apart but I took them home,hosed them off, put them in the sun to dry for about a week after that I thought they looked unusually good so I put the insoles back in,put them on and to my surprise they were as cozy as the day I got them. No damage at all. I just bought the second pair of performance wide and thick for my Danner. Pronghorn boots which were a little too roomy,put them in,tried the boots on and yeppers,once again a perfect fit and so comfy it's like walking on clouds. To quote Arnold Schwarzenegger, "I'll be back" Absolutely love these foot beds.
Use in every shoe
These are far superior to the insoles that come with shoes. They are supportive and comfortable. Heat molding to fit is simple.
Active Wide Thick
I love the Thick Wide Active insoles. I get new ones every six months to a year. They are a tad price but they make it up in quality and performance. The only problem is that they are hard to find sometimes.
Great Fit for Altras
The PERFORMANCE WIDE MEDIUM is my new favorite insole!!! Great fit in my Altra Olympus shoes and nice feature these can be molded.
My Feet Were Surprised
I have flat feet that make it hard to find the proper support. That balance between too much and too little often results in pain and sore feet. The performance thin strike that balance for me. At first, I wasn't sure, but I knew I had to give it the time they needed to break in. I know the oven method accelerates the process, but I wanted to give my feet time to earn it. Sure enough, the insoles moulded to my feet after a few days. Most days, I don't even feel they are in my shoes. But the most telling result is the lack of pain and soreness. They work.
I have orthotics and have have tried many other types of insoles. These are by far the best footbeds that are not custom molded for my feet and 1/4 of the price of orthotics. I definitely recommend these!
Balanced foot support
I have two pairs now. One pair for the shoes I run in and one pair for the shoes I play ball in. These insoles provided immediate ongoing relief for a tight IT band issue caused by inward foot pronation.
I love love these flips. I have 4 pairs and wear them inside and out. They provide as much support as my orthopedic insoles.
My doctor did me a solid.
So my arch on one side has fallen completely. Combination of bad or worn out footwear, and carrying a baby around on that side. I went to my doctor to request a referral for custom orthotics as I had a little bit of coverage with benefits. My doc was like sure here’s the referral, but here’s the deal : you get custom orthotic funding once every two years and your customs will wear out before then. He popped off his shoes and had SOLE in his runners. So I ordered a pair. I had bought a pair of Form brand insoles a week before and they felt good. When my SOLE's arrived, I was in love with the first fit. There’s some nub in the middle that stabs into some part of my foot that the Form one does not have, that gives me a lot of relief. Is this fixing my problem? No, but my daughter also still demands to be carried a lot. These footbeds are giving me the support I need and the relief I need to get through the day. And I didn’t go out of pocket 300 bucks like I would have for the custom orthotics.
Excellent for ski boots
I used these to replace the factory insoles in my K2 ski boots. Noticeable upgrade in support for my ankles and knees!
Great and Comfortable Footbeds
I've been using these in my work shoes for a couple of weeks and they are great. They help out with my arches and the pressure on my heels. These footbeds are also thinner than other replacement insoles I've had so they don't take up too much space in the shoes.
I pretty much have various styles of SOLE in every pair of shoes and boots I own. They are all amazing and make very good shoes and boots feel GREAT. Manufacturers of footwear don't make premium insoles. From now on I'll order a new pair of soles with every new footwear purchase.
I have purchased SOLE footbeds many times for my running and MTB shoes but this was the first time I purchased them for my downhill ski boots...and it was the correct decision. I was replacing the stock ski boot insole and wanted something thin but with some support..the performance thin footbeds fit the bill. Minimal trimming to fit, no pinching in the boot and better feel in the ski boot itself.
I think I finally found my footbed
I've spent hundreds of dollars on insoles for the past few years to correct a combination of AAFD, flantar fasciitis, and hallux rigidus. I've tried just about every competitor with some success – but it's never perfect. I can't believe I went years without trying this brand. I'm finally pain free and can run again.
Been wearing this brand for years
I’ve been buying this brand through Amazon for many years. Glad I found the company site.with a better selection. These are so much better than superfeet which always squeaked. Eliminates knee pain. Podiatrist said these insoles have saved me from needing foot surgery.
These insoles are very comfortable and easy to get used to. They really make a difference.
Good for Plantar Faciitis
I have been wearing SOLE inserts for over 20 years. They really worked for me in reducing plantar facilities pain. I wear them in all footwear. I started using the thick versions after removing the shoe manufacturers insole. I needed a little more cushioning so I switched to these thin versions with a pair of store bought cushion insoles on top of them. The combo works great. I still take out the manufacturers insoles.
My husband is on his feet all day and these insoles help keep his feet warm and happy!
I had terrible ankle pain from walking on concrete all day. After around a week with these insoles the pain is gone
Wear them when not wearing my orthopaedic insoles in shoes.
Makes me want to wear my shoes in the house!
I've had these for a few weeks and can say that my feet are more comfortable wearing shoes with the insoles in them than to be barefoot. They make me want to were my shoes all the time to benefit from the added support.
So comfortable don’t waste money on cheap insoles buy this you won’t be disappointed
Been wearing these for 2 years. Tried many others and wasted time and money. Active thick - highly recommended
Finally a footbed that actually works!
I've tried other over the counter insole brands with no luck. Then came SOLE.... finally a quality footbed that actually works! I've never been more comfortable. Say goodbye to sore feet... for good! Highly recommend.
Good for road running shoes
I use these for my road running shoes. Just swap out the running shoe insole for the SOLE and you have good arch support and some added cushioning. It fixed my plantar fasciitis.
Essential for me
I learned years ago to automatically replace insoles that come in the shoes you buy. After spending a lot on a pair of custom orthotics I discovered Sole. Over time my need increased and so did SOLE options. I’m in my 80s, I’ve been active my whole life and thanks to SOLE I can still run, walk, do aerobics and feel great!
My mother-in-law bought a pair of these for me when I starting working at the hospital and was on my feet all of the time. They have definitely helped cushion my feet and I could tell when I needed a new pair because my feet started hurting.
My mom is the one who introduced these footbeds to me when my feet were sore when working. I love them and have continued to buy more.
I've owned many different versions of these, very happy
I started with the original Ed Viesturs style thick beds, and they have been way better for me than Superfeet. I've been through at least ten sets of SOLE insoles over the years now, and I can't imagine walking around without them. I hiked the entire PCT with them and most of the CDT.
Perfect fit and comfort
I bought these for some every day shoes I was finding hurt the soles of my feet when walking on hard surfaces - these footbeds have eliminated that pain. I thought they may make my shoes too tight as the original insoles were very thin, but they don’t.
I've been wearing these for for at least 5 years now and they are fantastic. I am a diabetic and have problems with my feet and help relieve the pain. I'm a school bus driver and wear boot all day and if it weren't for these footbeds I wouldn't be able to.
I can't believe it took me so long to find these after paying for basic insoles from sport shops and the pharmacy . I have 2 pairs and they are constantly in use!
Solved my aching feet problems
I have been using these footbeds for about a month and my feet are so grateful! My podiatrist recommended that I get insoles, and offered to sell my some for $100, but I got these instead. So glad that I did. I had been running daily but my feet were getting to sore, callused, painful to continue. after about one week of wearing these daily I am feeling much better and am looking forward to running again soon. thanks!
Great insoles for winter boots / rubber boots
Made my winter boots (northface) way more comfortable for my arch support. I’ve ordered a pair to my rubber boots as well. Both boots fit snug, these footbeds allow for the support without making my foot feel cramped.
No more cold feet!
I hate cold feet! These insoles make a huge difference in really cold weather, especially when there is snow and/or ice on the ground.
cozy and comfy support
I purchased these for my rain boots, since the stock insoles didn't offer enough support and my foot slid around. The SOLE insoles keep my feet cozy and offer great support for long walks in cold, wet weather.
I have bunions and thought I’d give these insoles a try. I wear them in my blundstones. They are very comfortable and the met pad is like a foot massage with every step you take.
Won't go back to any other insole!
These have provided me with so my relief! I had sworn off insoles, but these footbeds have truly made a different for me and are so comfortable!
The cork bed causes a fair bit of squeaky noise against the leather shoe walls. It’s more comfortable than the regular thin footbeds.
Met pad is a nice improvement over plain versions which I've used for many years in mtb shoes. I sized up because my arch is longer and taller than average for my foot length--front of insole had to be trimmed in order to fit. I also have a pair of Active Thick Met which are even more comfortable. If outer edges of heel cup were slimmed down a touch in order to make it easier to fit into shoe, they'd be perfect
If you have roomy shoes, these are great
I find these footbeds very comfortable and mine don't squeak like the corks one do. Only use these if you are plenty of room in your shoes and can remove the original insoles. Otherwise, I would recommend the medium footbeds.
Makes my hiking boots more comfortable
Used these footbeds on a handful of hikes. So much more comfortable than the insoles that came with the boot. They also got ride of the extra space in my boot. Worth the purchase!
These footbeds are amazing. Over the years I have tried many different brands of footbeds and insoles, and nothing compares to these. I also have the thick footbeds in my winter hiking boots and they are fantastic. Highly recommended.
Finally no pain
After dealing with pain on the bottom of my feet, and after trying several pairs of shoes and different insole combinations, the SOLE footbeds were the only footbeds that relived the pain.
My daughter had me order these insoles because I was diagnosed with Planters fasciitis. I saw the foot doctor and he agreed the made my feet stop hurting right away. Amazing!!!!!
Comfortable footbed carried me through my vacation
I wore these for the first time on a 3 week trip to Japan. Over there, I had to do lots of walking every day in order to get to the train station or a store. These footbeds were comfortable to the point where I basically did not notice them. That is a big deal to me since I haven't had much luck with all of the various insole products that I've tried in the past. Some of those hurt my feet more than helping. The SOLE footbeds got me through a lot of walking, so they are going to stay in my shoes, and I will get myself some more for other shoes.
Great for my work boots
I overpronate so I needed something to put in my work boots. These work great. They’re supportive, thick, fit nicely into my work boots and make them nice and snug. At the end of my shift my feet aren’t sore which means these insoles must be working
I have HEDS, and my feet cannot stay in alignment on their own. I've tried other insoles before, but these are the first I've found that actually support my feet and keep my pain levels down
Thick but that's why I like it.
The pad is thick so you have to make sure you have room for it in your boot; however, the thickness is part of the reason I like this insole so much. I replaced a red Medium SOLE insole in an older boot I used at home and my feet feel more comfortable and I feel a sense of relief too.
They work very well. Absolutely the most comfortable insoles I have ever worn
Best Customer Service
First I want to say I love my SOLE inserts. I have Mortons Neuroma in both feet and was heading towards surgery. My SOLE inserts have helped so much with the pain and discomfort I am no longer considering surgery. I can walk and hike without pain. While I love my inserts, I truly want to sing the praises of their amazing customer service. About 10 days before I fly to Iceland I see a sale on the Thermal Thick insole with wool. I immediately place an order and knowing I was expecting a miracle, I wrote a note and asked if they could possibly ship them out quickly, Not only did they get them out the same day but an amazing employee wrote on the envelope "Recipient going to Iceland on 11th, deliver soon" Well they arrived today, two days before I leave. Without their prompt service and note on my package I doubt they would have made it in time. They went from Vancouver to Los Angeles to Virginia in record time . THANK YOU so much!!!! You are the best!!!!
Great insoles for everyday wear!
Always replace shoe insoles with SOLE footbeds. Makes all the difference in the world!
Finally ordered some new insoles!
I bought several pairs nearly 10 years ago (different model) they hold up longer than your shoes will by far! I ordered new ones for the met pad and love them!!!
Extra warmth with support
I’ve been wearing these for the past couple months (Ontario winter so the temperatures are from 0 to -27). The insoles work great in my boots it’s not too much insulation but enough to keep the cold out.
Robert Schlenkerman Schlenkerman
Wife loves them
We are both Nurses and I turned my wife onto these a few years back and she’s noticed a difference immediately!! Now whenever I’m buying insoles she wants them too!!
Robert Schlenkerman Schlenkerman
I have been buying SOLE insoles for many years. I have many types for different shoes and need them for comfort, The Thick works great being on a hard floor for 10-14 hours a day and really makes a difference. My only complaint with the cork insoles is sometimes they squeak in certain shoes, so I take a little bit of leather oil and rub in on the underside and they are perfect. Thank you SOLE!!
I have been wearing these in my winter boots and they keep my feet straight as I walk. When I wear other footwear without these insoles, my hips are sore. So I now own three pair!
Won me over!
I tried a lot of insoles that did very little for the plantar fasciitis I was experiencing. These insoles are on a whole new level. I won’t go anywhere without them.
I was a bit skeptical about their products. I have purchased insoles from other companies and unfortunately have been disappointed!! Based on their reviews I decided to give them a try. I work in home health and I’m physically on my feet all day. I’m so glad I did! Amazing insoles, extremely comfortable and I don’t feel exhausted at the end of the day. Can’t believe how comfortable they feel! Definitely will continue to buy their insoles. Thanks SOLE for your amazing products!
These are awesome insoles
I was very skeptical of these at first, but since my doctor recommended the black ones I decided to give it a try. At first they hurt my feet, but when I did the oven trick for 2 minutes these insoles feel awesome. My plantar fasciitis pain is almost all gone. This things are gold.
It was time to refresh my shoes & the new ones deserve the best insoles so I ordered the best! Thank you SOLE.
These are the best insoles I've ever used. I had a pain in my hip before using and a couple weeks after beginning to use them, the pain is almost completely gone.
Great for running shoes with minimal cushioning
Great light weight insoles for running.
perfect, just what I thought they would be like.
these Medium insoles were perfect for my shoes that the thicker ones were too thick for.
My husband is on his feet on cold concrete floors all day so I gave him these for Christmas. In his words: "These insoles are 'frickin amazing'!"
Absolutely the best quality. They are everything they say but they don't tell you that they're the most comfortable things ever !!! They made my shoes fit better and way more comfortable and they were already wildly comfortable shoes. 300$ shoes 70$ shoe insoles.... Best comfort ever.
Feedback on Thermal Thick with Wool, Men's 5 / Women's 7
Love these winter thick insoles! Have them in my Blundstones for the winter. Definitely need to be a roomy pair of footwear to work. They feel so nice on my feet and I no longer get sore feet when wearing my boots all day. The size 7 insole slid right into my size 7 (4AU) blundstone perfectly.
Great boots for all weather
This is my second pair. I bought a pair last year and I absolutely loved them so bought another in a different color. Keep your toes warm and dry even in the coldest winter weather. The added comfort from the insoles is beyond compare. The shoes are a bit tight to put on around the ankles at first but stretches out later. I am a true 9.5 and size 9 fits perfectly while 10 are a bit loose if you like them looser.
I have Morton’s Neuroma and love walking so I purchased a really wide running shoe and this footbed. I now can walk for hours! I love it so much that I have started buying more insoles so I don’t have to keep moving them from shoe to shoe. Thank you SOLE!
Most comfortable insole I’ve purchased
I’ve been wearing these for a few weeks now and I’m noticeably more comfortable throughout the day. I have to be on my feet all day for my work and these insoles lessen my pain. I’m already looking to get more for my other shoes and sneakers!
Saved a pair of shoes from being useless
I had a pair of running shoes that made my heels hurt and one of my toes go numb. I was quite annoyed that I had spent money on them and gotten so little use out of them. The SOLE insoles have turned them into shoes that I can wear comfortably, standing, for hours at a time. Very much worth the minor investment in the SOLE product (on sale!), since I got a "new" pair of shoes out of the deal.
Goodbye foot pain
I wear these in all my running shoes. They’ve taken care of the foot and ankle issues I usually encountered. The insoles are well-made, long lasting, and comfortable. Highly recommend for foot health.
My Go-To for foot comfort
My feet have given me pain for years, and I've worn through a lot of insoles, trying to find something that works--and lasts. When a friend suggested I try SOLE, I thought, okay, I'll give them a go. That was at least 10 years ago, and I've never looked back. These insoles are by far the best I've tried, and they really do hold up well. I give them my highest recommendation.
Great winter insole !
These help my freezing feet !The insulation is resistant and it fits perfectly. Great product, and much better than the insole that came with my boots.
Finally found insoles that work for me.
I wrote an extensive review of the Medium thickness Active insoles. The thick ones are used in one of my work shoes that have a little bit too much room. I am definitely sold on SOLE insoles. They are the best ones that I have ever tried.
Finally found insoles that work for me.
I have tried dozens of different footbeds over the years. Trying to ease my foot pain from working on old, hard concrete hangar floors. I have stacks of ones that I have tried and did not work. SOLE footbeds are the only ones that have helped. They have deep heel cups to keep my foot stable while walking carrying a heavy tool bag. The arch is just right. Many of the high priced ones have too extreme of an arch. The bottom layer is firm, and keeps your foot from squishing around in your shoe, like some of the overly cushioned ones. They have just the right amount of cushion. Also, they are not overly tall at the heel. I need this. Because of the damage to the nerves in the balls of my feet. I cannot have the forward rake. It causes too much pain. I need as neutral a platform as possible. The material layer that your foot sits on is extremely tough! It has held up to very demanding work conditions that include a lot of walking and an active work environment. I am completely sold on SOLE footbeds. Also, they are more reasonably priced than many of the ones that i have tried and did not work for me. Plus, they give you discounts once you become a customer. I wish I would have had them years ago! It would possibly helped keep my foot pain from getting worse as time went on, and would have saved me a lot of money wasted on footbeds that did not work. Thank you!! ............ Also, the thick ones are good if you have a little extra room in your shoes. The mediums are good as a direct replacement in shoes that fit just right. ...... My search for good insoles has come to an end!!!
Very happy with my insoles
I’ve been wearing these for a few weeks and because of the thick build they are very easy to pop out and back in for drying.
Can’t Live Without These !!!
I got my first pair last year and loved how they can be heated and molded to my feet. I bought more pairs to keep in various footwear. My hips feel much better since getting these insoles. I am walking straighter.
Helps my sore heel.
I have persistent heel pan and these insoles allow me to walk and stand at work.
Best Insoles Ever
I have been using SOLE insoles for many years. They work the best for me and my wife. I highly recommend and you won't be sorry.
Worth every penny!
This was our greatest discovery yet! These inserts are a major blessing at work and at home, making walking and standing comfortable again. We love them so much that we each bought a second pair for our regular walking shoes (I have to wear safety boots at work) so that we don't have to keep moving the insoles from shoes to shoes every day; so convenient! Can't recommend them more highly!
I bought these along with ones with Met Pads. I prefer the met style. I wear safety shoes 8-10hrs a day and I no longer have any pain while wearing my shoes. I hope my plantar fasciitis will eventually heal now that I have found great supportive insoles.
Bought this wool footbed to go inside my winter Blundstones. Gives me the support and comfort I need. Considering buying the wool insoles for my other winter boots. What a difference!
My new favorite insoles
I have 3 pairs of these in various sizes in my ice skates, ski boots, and running shoes. The low profile fits in any and all of my existing footwear, they provide just enough support for my flat feet. I had been using a competing brand for more than 10 years but I think I found my new favorite insole.
Great for ski boots and skates
These were a very nice upgrade from the stock insoles in my ski boots. Trimmed them to fit while having my boots fitted and they feel very nice! I have very flat feet with little to no arch and I can spend an entire day skiing in comfort.
Works great in ski boots
My friends said replacing the stock insole in my ski boot would make a big difference. (Most of them have custom insoles.) My boots fit fine so I didn't think it'd matter much. I eventually tried this SOLE footbed and was surprised how much it helped my skiing form. I could better feel where I was weighting my foot since it was now supported. Highly recommend.
Been using SOLE insoles for years. These were for my wife. Her first bought insoles. They work wonders for our Planter fasciitis!!! Thanks for a good product. Fair price.
Improve your hiking experience
I’ve added these insoles to my hiking shoes and that has helped me with covering longer distances. I feel like my feet are less tired and don’t hurt as much because of the insoles.
My son was struggling on and off with achilles tendonitis and the Active Medium with met pad made a huge difference in his running comfort. He hasn't experienced the pain again since starting to use the insoles a year ago.
Thick wool insoles
These transformed my rain boots into warm winter boots. Now they are as comfortable as my high dollar running shoes.
Best insole for my wide feet.
The minute I put them in my shoes it was the comfort I was waiting for.
Switched out the original insoles in my non insulated hiking boots with the wool insoles and now I have a pair of winter boots that will keep my feet warm!
Very Comfortable and Warm Without Being Too Hot
I needed a pair of insoles to take up some of the void in some Canada West Chelsea boots that run a bit big. Being that it was also winter I wanted something to keep my feet warm and found the SOLE Thermal Thick with wool to be the ones to try. The heat molding process was super easy and the break in time was nothing as they felt great on first wear. More importantly they keep my feet warm, stable and comfortable without flattening out like some other thermal sheep skin insoles designed for Chelsea boots for a similar price.
great for wide feet
I have EEE feet and these are the only insoles that fit my extra wide shoes (thank you propet and Altra for making shoes for feet like mine). They don't offer as much arch support as the 'active' version, but the softer cork seems less likely to wear through the water proof sock lining in my hiking boots.

Helps to Keep my Elderly Mom Mobile
I've been a happy SOLE wearer for many years and finally convinced my 90+ year old arthritic mom to try them also. She had been a user of 'drug store' foam inserts to the overpriced 'TV advertised rock hard' half insoles, sometimes stacking sheets of foam in strategic points of her shoes to battle 'sore spots'. Mom wears an wide width orthotic shoe and needs arch support and cushion due to degenerative arthritis. The SOLE Thick Wide insert provides both. These were a 'drop in' to her shoes. No trimming required. At three weeks into her wearing, it is the first time in years that she hasn't complained that her 'feet aren't happy'. I'm expecting that these will wear well based on my experience with SOLE products. Most likely I will be ordering an additional pair for her 'casual shoes' as she seems satisfied with the performance of these. Many Thanks.
Best footbeds ever
I’ve been dealing with some plantar fascia issues recently and the Met Pad insole really helped with the discomfort.
Saved my foot
I had a stress fracture because I wasn’t updating my shoes often enough. Starting wearing these insoles and my fracture has healed completely.
These are and did exactly what I was looking for. I didn't do a lot of research but they looked cool and were expensive..They had a Thick model to make my NMD R1 V2 Adidas a bit tighter... Not only did they accomplish that to perfection as well as in my Adidas Rovermule. I baked my footbeds until the handy sticker turned black at 170 ish but set your temp to 200 leave in for 2 min. And slide em in. Its a comfortable endeavor as it molds them to your feet to perfection. I'll be buying another few pairs. The sizing is absolutely spot on. The quality is literally next to nobody. I believe that SOLE is the pinnacle of aftermarket footwear enhancements. Thank you guys. Sincerely impressed and happier than I thought I would ever be about insoles. SOLE is absolutely worth every single penny and I will absolutely be telling some friends and be buying more to not have to swap them in and out. I'll be buying 3 more pair to keep them in all current rotation shoes that benefit from them ... Which is most. I could not be happier with these. Absolutely top notch. Perfect fit. Absolutely spot on.
Have never found a more comfortable and supportive insole - SOLE insoles are the best!
Help me a lot when playinig pickleball
I have tried a bunch of different insoles to help my plantar fasciitis and these are by far the best I have found.
It can be hard to find insoles when you wear wide shoes or wide toebox shoes like Altras or Hokas. These fit the bill; they provide cushioning and a ton of support, all while being made with recycled materials. Would absolutely recommend.
I have been wearing these insoles for my metatarsal fallen bone arch for close to three weeks. I am being totally honest when I say I have NO more pain, I'm walking without a limp, and walking at my normal pace! I am thrilled. Thank you so much. Now I don't have to go to a foot clinic and dish out 450.00. Love my insoles.
Never seen molded thermal insoles before, so I had to have them! Great purchase. Does exactly as described.
Has replaced custom orthotics
I used to have custom orthotics made but now I use SOLE insoles - much more affordable and just as comfortable.
My thin besties
I own 5 pairs… all different thins and they are all great… they fit snug in my loafers but very comfy. I also I have 1 pair of Naot sandals but I took out their soles and put my SOLE footbeds instead. Naot makes few great sandals that you can switch your insoles out of. SOLE footbeds works super in them. For cute flats the thins work so great that I have support, my feet don’t hurt and gives me a correct arch.. just love my thins.
I had been buying them for 3 years. Thin, Medium and Thick for all different shoes and boots. Love them all but my fave are Thin for loafers and Medium for runners. They are so much better than the 500$ expensive insoles. Flexible, not hard and mold to your feet. I am in love and my feet are so happy. I can go miles walking and at work standing on my feet all day. If you have not tried them please do… they are life savers… your feet limbs etc will thank you. Such a great company.
Happy feet, clear conscience.
Referred by a colleague. Foot support is critical for well being in my profession (Paramedic). These are just as comfortable for my back, knees, legs, and feet as a different insole that I have used for years. But even better is that these last longer, and after a year of constant use seem to have zero foot odor whatsoever. The other kind I used could be washed, but also break down and need replacement by this point. I am converted! Take advantage of their rewards options and deals all year long to get your best value and to avoid paying the intimidating price.
Sole Performance insole
My recent purchase is for my wife as she was complaining about having foot pain and discomfort on her plantar fascia because of being on her feet, working for 12 hours. As soon as we put the SOLE Performance insole on her working shoes, the first week, she already noticed a big difference. From scale of pain of 10, to 5. She continues using the SOLE insole and it has been about a month now and the pain and discomfort is about 2-3. This insole is a great product, I like that it is heat moldable to customize to the contour of your feet. I myself is using this product in my cycling shoes. I highly recommend this product and thank you for developing a product that serves the purpose and works good 😊
Have been using these insoles for years and they have saved my feet. Amazing for plantar fasciitis and/or achilles tendinitis!
Immediate plantar fasciitis relief
I have been wearing these exact insoles for 5 years since stumbling upon them! I was soo lucky…. At that time I was struggling with severe plantar fasciitis… was directed to an insole online store… typed in my ailment… and this product from SOLE was the first to appear. These insoles were stiff, supportive, and immediately reduced my pain by 90%. I ordered another pair immediately and rotated them through my running, work, and lifestyle shoes. Within 2 to 3 weeks my fasciitis was cured. Try these before you spend hundreds on custom orthotics…
Great Foundation and Fit
My foot size is 15N, basically no arch and I weigh 260 pounds. These SOLE Active Thick insoles offer excellent support and often times a size 15 only comes in medium width so these thick inserts enable size medium to fit perfectly and comfortably. I coach, so use in athletic shoes, work boots, as well as dress shoes. If I have a 15N shoe, thinner SOLE inserts works best. The Active Thick raises my heel too much in some shoes. I use these in all my shoes. Highly recommend!
I am a 30 year retired veteran, with many injuries to my feet and knees. These insoles have provided immediate relief to my pains and recoveries. I was very skeptical. I would absolutely recommend the SOLE insoles to anyone who experience feet and knee pains.
I depend on my insoles
In 2015 my right foot was fractured in three places. Following three surgeries and rehab, my Orthopedic doctor suggested SOLE insoles: specifically the thick ones. I was skeptical. I bought a pair. Molded it to my feet as directed in the instructions. And instantly realized the insoles provided me the necessary relief to my feet, which also gave relief to my knees. I have SOLE insoles in all my shoes and boots!
They are awesome. Great arch support but just make sure you have a bit of extra room in you shoes; they're a bit thicker than most stock insoles.
I have a lot of foot pain, probably the result of 40+ years of jobs standing all day on hard floors, running, trail running, and playing soccer. Gave up running and soccer a few years ago. I put these in my cycling shoes. They provide excellent support, pain reduction, and my feet no longer cramp while cycling (which was a nuisance). I have a custom orthotic from a podiatrist. The SOLE insoles provide a similar amount of support at a fraction of the price. They are not quite as comfortable as the custom insoles, but the comfort definitely improves as they mold to your feet. .
Felt like a new pair of sneakers!
I have had a number of special insoles made for me, and just about every other footbad in the market. Nothing beats SOLE! This one was a replacement for a thick footbed I had for years. When I stepped into this one, I couldn’t believe how much of a float difference there was. I also have the Medium for different sneakers, but this is the best one yet! I100% recommendation! Ordering another pair now for my multiple pairs of tennis sneakers. I primarily wear them to pickle ball. Note, I have multiple spine injuries, sciatic knee, plantar fasciitis and leg trauma. These are a lifesaver!
So much better!
I have had issues with plantar fasciitis. It’s under control but on occasion, it flares up. I had issues while I was hiking. Thankfully my sister was with me and had experience with your insoles. I always listen to my sister (mostly). I started with one pair and was moving them between shoes. Quickly became tired of that and got a few more. I also have a friend who is on her feet for work all day and gets really sore feet and back. I ordered her a pair. Saw her the other day and she stopped, took off her sneaker and pointed at the insole. She said she does not wake up in pain anymore after a long day at work! I definitely recommend the product.
Been using these for years and keep buying more. The cork is sustainable and the insoles are comfortable. I use them in my dress shoes, running shoes, hiking shoes, and all other shoes I switch between. Fantastic insoles.
I put my insoles into a pair of boots I wear more or less everyday. They feel perfect. I generally walk and stand for long periods of time and these insoles have to be the best for comfort.
Great for big men
I have large feet (US16) and it's hard to find insoles that actually work for me. I got a pair of these for my work boots and love them. They molded perfectly to my feet and helped reduce my back pain.
Work boots are enjoyable to wear
Switching to these insoles from another well known brand that I trusted for awhile. Once broken in to mold to your foot, these insoles make my work boots a bit more enjoyable to wear!
The best insoles ever
Had plantar fasciitis that I had been dealing with for about a year. started using these insoles and it has gone away and stayed away. Recommended by a friend who had the insole recommended by her PT. I will never use anything else.
Can't live without them...
I have been immediately replacing the original insoles that come in my everyday shoes and my hiking shoes with SOLE insoles before I first wear them. I depend on the support and comfort over the original insoles - Thanks SOLE!
The very best ever
After trying every insole I could find for my husband to try, this one is it! He has a pair in all his shoes. He walks 5-10 miles every day in his work boots and is flat footed. SOLE footbeds are fabulous.
Perfect for my feet
These are the only insoles I use! They fit my feet perfectly. I also like that they are easily custom molded. Thanks you SOLE for making such a great product!
Best flips I've worn
I have bad plantar fasciitis pain, I find I need to wear insoles to prevent my feet from being in excruciating pain. I bought these sandals to use as slippers in my house as I find shoes tend to be too hot when lounging. I have really liked them and they seem to fit to size really well and most importantly they help keep my pain low. My only dislike is that I hate the piece that goes in between my toes, I find it very uncomfortable and wish I had spent a little bit extra on the slide-style sandal. If you are okay with a piece of fabric between your toes these sandals are perfect.
Best insole for Morton's nueroma
The met pad on my SOLE insoles has provided relief from the discomfort of Morton's nueroma. I recommend them to anyone with that condition or plantar fasciitis. I have been using these insoles for ten years now and they are both durable and comfortable.
I'm using these in my hockey skates and they are so much better than the standard insoles, it's night and day. My feet don't get cold anymore and I feel like they improve my balance and performance.
These shoes have become my go-to for daily use. Very comfortable and I love the firmness of the insole. They aren't the easiest to slip on or off, however, so if you'll be removing your shoes frequently maybe leave these ones at home.
I have around 12 pairs of these and I love them all. I have high arches and these are perfect. It started with shoes and boots not supporting high arches so I had purchased custom made insoles and for the price of them I could have had 4 pair's of SOLE. Since I started wearing SOLE my feet have been very happy. Thank you SOLE
I have bad arthritis in both my knees. I recently bought a new pair of boots recommended by a drill instructor. Of course I also wanted great insoles. I had a couple of pairs and bought a couple of new ones to try. Then I got my SOLE inserts. I can say that my great new boots now have phenomenally comfortable and supportive inserts. And while my arthritis didn't miraculously disappear, these inserts greatly reduce the pain. My boots are wide width. I ordered the wide inserts. I had to trim them slightly. But better to have to trim them than not have them wide enough.
Haven't found anything that comes close!
My wife has been wearing these for years and cannot live without them. Having high arches, they are the only insoles that give her the support she needs, both in her hiking boots as well as her athletic shoes
These were purchased for my youngest daughter. Now everyone in my family has SOLE insoles. We love them
I work in the medical field and am on my feet all day. I suffer from plantar fasciitis and these insoles have been great. I love that they mold to your feet and offer great support. Highly recommend!
Great quality product. Fits my sneakers no problem and replaced the worn out insole. Saved me having to buy new sneakers to replace an otherwise good pair of shoes thus extending the life span of my shoes.
Without these insoles I never would be able to run pain free and as many km’s per week that I do. Couldn’t live without these SOLES.
Great support with Performance Medium with Met Pad
I have been wearing them for a few weeks, traveled, and walked a lot and these insoles really support my foot.
The only footbed I wear
I’ve been wearing SOLE footbeds in my walking shoes for a number of years. I recently switched to the ones with met pads. They have made my 5 mile walks so much more comfortable and even extended the life of my shoes. The best inSOLE.
I’ve been wearing these in my Hoka One One shoes. It is like walking on a cloud. I’ve ordered another pair for my hiking boots.
Awesome corrective insole
It's awesome. really helped with my stance and helped with back pain from all the walking and standing I do at my work. Yet to see if it helps on the way the heels on my boots quickly wore off on one side but so far so good.
Finally pain free
I have been wearing my SOLE insoles for almost a year and love them. I have many pairs in all kinds of shoes. For someone that dealt with planter fasciitis for over a year and a half these SOLEs were a savior! I still wear them everyday.
Perfect in snow boots
I have a pair of great boots that have always been a little big. These insoles are PERFECT and so warm. I now have various SOLEs in all of my shoes and appreciate and support the reward program.
Very Best Footbeds
I ordered the SOLE Active Thick with Met Pad for my husband’s work-boots and he has found tremendous relief from his plantar fasciitis!! He has tried many other insoles but none helped the pain! He is so happy with the SOLE insoles that I am going to order and try them for my bad ankle and knees!
Great Insole for Everyday Shoes
I put these in a pair of everyday non-athletic leather shoes. I tried one of the SOLE insoles I had purchased for athletic shoes and they were too thick. These were perfect.
Very Supportive Sock
I have been very pleased at how this sock adds to the support of my SOLE insoles. I'm going to get more pairs for sure!
Comfortable, as expected of SOLE insoles
I've been wearing SOLE insoles for years to help with soreness from flat feet and find them to be superior to all the other insoles I've tried.
Great insoles for work
I’ve been buying these for a few years now. It usually lasts for about a year. I use them for work everyday in an industrial work area. I’m on my feet for most of the day. I was looking for insoles because my feet would hurt from standing all day. Once I got these, the pain went away. I usually replace them once a year and they keep working!
Bear with the break in period, worth it.
Similar to a pair of quality cork shoes or slippers. These insoles will conform to your feet. To say they add insulation to your footwear is kinda a no brainer. To say I noticed an improvement of warmth I'd neither agree or disagree. Relying on insoles alone is wrong. Layering your socks and correct footwear is key! These insoles would be an added comfort in foot comfort with some possible negligible reduction in cold or heat transfer.
I'm an active hiker and I've tried them all over the past 40 years. SOLE Active Medium are the best I've found so far. They offer excellent support and last a long time. Take care of your feet and replace those flimsy factory insoles with these ones. They are a game changer.
Out performs the competition
Purchased other insoles, but nothing has been more fulfilling to alleviate foot problems than these cork insoles
Better than the competition
I’ve been ordering and using SOLE inserts ever since it helped heal my plantar facititis. Now with these new and improved designs that fit better in work boots, I have been an advocate with co-workers to order these insoles.
I swear by these things!
These insoles turn a mediocre pair of shoes into your go-to shoes that make long hours on your feet a breeze.
Great SOLEs - footbeds!
SOLE just makes insoles (footbeds) right. I have been using Superfeet for a long time. For several years now I have been wearing SOLE and love them. They are sturdy, provide excellent support, and look good.
Choice of footbeds for Nordic walking!
I bought these for the metatarsal pad and they are amazing! Great support, great pain relief and fit true to size for my shoes. I wear a size 10.5 Altra and bought the 11 to trim it down and to have it a little wider. Just wish there was a bigger market for wide insoles with the metatarsal pad!
Never using any other insole again!
I wanted to try this out, and first started with a women's SOLE flip flop, which I felt dramatic support with. So when these went on sale, I tried them out, and now I won't use any other insoles. I have this set for my hiking boots, and the Active Medium with Met Pad for my motorcycle boots so I can wear my thick socks. I do a lot of walking around New York City, and I feel a dramatic difference in how my body feels. I used to come home feeling achy after a lot of walking. I don't, now.
He won't use any other insoles now
My husband LOVES these insoles, and will no longer use any other insoles. He sees a dramatic difference in how his body feels after a long day of walking around New York City on a daily basis. With his old insoles, he would come home and his body would be in pain. With these insoles, he has a bounce in his step, and his back doesn't hurt by the time he comes home.
Great support for tired feet
I have high arches, and love to hike. I have been using these insoles for over five years and replacing them every six months, and I have no foot pain, even with long hikes
I have used these for 4 years. Best thing I ever did for my planter fasciitis. Good product, good price.
Highly recommend this product
I’ve been a customer for years now. Only insole I will buy. Durable and dependable.
I was already a customer of SOLE insoles for plantar fasciitis, but never had tried the insoles with the Met pads, it is great. I used to feel my toes and ball of the foot kind of sleepy after a day at work, but in the first day I start using the ones with Met pads after work I felt my feet fine, and now after around a month using the insoles, my feet feel good again.
Happy feet, happy life!
Love, love, love these insoles! Recommended by my chiropractor, Dr. Chipperfield in Edmonton while being treated for unrelated issues. I've used super feet for many years for plantar fasciitis and although happy with them, SOLE insoles are top notch and unmatched for quality and comfort. Comfortable from the get go, did not have to try the heat custom fit. Although they are easy for me to put in my various footwear, I just bought additional pairs so I don't have to. Excellent customer service also!
I have purchased a few different insoles and love them all. I can’t be without a pair in all of my shoes. These are my footbeds of choice after trying many other products.
I thought I was going to need orthotics :(
A sudden & very painful onset of metatarsal-area pain prompted me to look for a solution...even if just a temporary one. I bought two different (and less expensive) metatarsal foot pain relief products and both failed miserably. The SOLE Met Pad footbed provided instant relief...but more importantly, lasting relief. It hasn't eliminated my problem - obviously I have a structural issue that needs to be addressed, but when I'm wearing shoes with the SOLE insole inside, the pain instantly drops by about 50% and once I start walking, after about 50-100 steps, the pain drops another 25-40%. Sometimes it goes away completely. On a related note, if you are a DIY kind of person, I have also started the first set of exercises in the book - The Foot Fix: 4 Weeks to Healthier, Happier Feet by Yamuna Zake - and they have made a big difference too. But first, buy a couple of pairs of SOLE insoles...I have recommended them to two friends already :)
Best footbeds for all feet types!
As a physical therapist and runner, it’s hard to find solid and sturdy footbeds that last. Well, these insoles are the best! I wear them in my running shoes, work shoes, and kick around shoes. No pain and excellent arch support! No more pain equals happy feet! Recommend these to all my patients and friends!
Great for sports
I wear these in place of crappy soccer insoles and they are a “game-changer”!
Sooo Much Comfort
My plantar fasciitis caused a lot of discomfort so I put various insoles in all my shoes. SOLE was recommended to me and now all my shoes have them. What a change and relief to my feet.
Start and end here. ;)
Wanted to take a moment and share my experience with these insoles / footbeds. After trying many other brands and styles, I’ve finally found the footbeds that work perfectly for my foot and shoe. I work retail and am on concrete all day long. These footbeds provide superb support with great cushioning. They fit true to size. I was able to use the Men’s W10 in a Danner 9.5 Bull Run boot without any trimming needed. Give these a try and you’ll probably love them too.
Best insoles available.
Great product. I replaced my insoles every three months and it helps my knee pain to stay away.
These are the standard that I measure all other insoles against. The fit is great. The support is perfect. The comfort is just what you want for long wear. Overall the best insoles I've used.
Becoming my #1
Really like the cork ones. These have become my go to insoles in the past year.
The insoles are great but turned out to be just a bit too beefy for my running shoes for which they were intended …. Should have stuck to the thinner version !
Great support and warmth
These are my first SOLE insoles. They are extremely warm in my winter hiking boots. The support took a week to break in for my feet to be comfortable, but now are absolutely fantastic. I have no pain and can walk for hours.
go to insoles
These are my new go to insoles to help with my flat feet and they provide extra support with the met pad. Been wearing them for a few years and highly recommend them.
Insole thats thin up front
I need an insole that has mid to high arch support and also thin under the ball of the foot. These seem to work for me.
Sole Is The Best
I love SOLE insoles, closest thing I've found to custom made insoles, I have them in all my work boots.
Plantar Fasciitis is no fun
I have SOLE insoles in every boot and shoe I own. I like the metatarsal bump in my newest ones. Have the thickest in my Bean waterproof boots and these models in my walking shoes, and the Thins in my dress/work shoes. I took out the Superfeet green orange and blues for these with my recent bout of plantar fasciitis which I would not wish on anyone. SOLE is the best.
Best off the shelf insoles
It was easy to warm them up in my oven. My sneakers are so much more comfortable now.
Best insoles I have ever had
I love these insoles. I wear them in all my shoes.
Much Bigger Difference than Anticipated
Started looking for insoles because of a deep bruise in the ball of my foot (came down on too many pointy rocks in a row trail running in the Rockies--bad luck!). Especially wanted something with a met pad. Got a good intro deal with SOLE, so went for it. Amazing! I really didn't think that the difference would be that dramatic, not only for my injury, which these definitely have helped, but just in general for the support and health and stamina of my feet. I'm 50, trail run 125-140 miles most months, and I was really beginning to feel strain in my feet these past few years. Just a general enervation in them, really, which I attribute to age more than anything. Having worn these insoles for some time now, I am, again, just amazed at the comfort and stamina the support they provide has provided. I've now purchased several more pairs for my hiking boots and my gym/lifting shoes. What a difference. Highly, highly recommended!
Love these in my winter boots!
I put a pair of these Thick with met pad insoles into my big ass winter boots and they've made them become actually comfortable to wear! I also do not feel my bunion pain by the end of a day of wearing then anymore! Superior win!!
Finally! Insoles with met pads that are available by retail! For years I was using custom orthotics to manage metatarsalgia costing hundreds of dollars a pair. These insoles by SOLE are a game changer with their different thicknesses for different types of footwear. I own about 6 pairs. Please...Make a met pad version in your thermal collection!
Wasn’t sure at first
After using for a number of days my initial concerns disappeared. They insoles have molded to my feet and are very comfortable.
Had foot pain. Started wearing these insoles. Wow, amazing! Relieved the pain. I’m on my feet all day. I’m a nurse. I bought insoles for all my shoes.
I began wearing the cork soles and as the weather has been getting colder, I put the thermal insoles in my winter boots. They are warmer and just as comfortable.. I am thrilled to have comfortable outdoor walks!
Best Insole Ever!
I had foot surgery 3 years ago and I will not wear any other insole. SOLE has saved me from foot pain.
Worth Every Dollar... Amazing Product
Found these through a Google search after trying a few different competing brands that either hurt my feet worse than stock insoles or left me thinking "yeah I guess that's better than what came with the shoe" but I couldn't help wondering if there was something better out there. The price initially put me off but I took the risk and I'm glad I did. These are absolutely worth every penny, I forgot to write a review for months because when your feet don't hurt you don't think about them despite how important they are. My original pair haven't worn out yet but I'm buying new shoes and want a new set to go in them.
New life for my boots.
These insoles slipped right into my Bludstones and have given them new life. Super comfortable, warm and easy on my feet.
Can’t go without
I have knee and back pain due to flat feet. These insoles helps a lot. I have a 3 pairs. If you wear them every day, they will last a full year. These insoles never have a smell either.
Have foot issues and have tried several insoles, will say that these have been the best by far. Would definitely purchase again
It does it’s job
Arch support in this insole has helped me to heal the plantar fasciitis problem I had for a couple months. These in soles along with some KT tape. Has helped me heal.
I been using SOLE inserts for 3 months. Well made insert, also comfortable and fitted exactly to my various footwear.
I use them in my work boots while working outside. Those insoles really make a difference and my feet are always warm even if I use thin socks.
Various thicknesses gives variety.
I've been using the SOLE Active Thick soles in my shoes that I wear daily. I'm on my feet all day and it's nice to have insoles that will fit in different shoes. Give SOLE a try you'll be glad you did.
Back on my feet again!
Have been wearing SOLE insoles for a number of years. They are great! Haven't changed out the insoles in a while, put in a new pair and I can feel the difference. Recommended by my podiatrist, SOLE insoles have allowed me to be active again!
Jamie lee L McAuley
The only ones to buy!
After trying every other insole out there, finally found these and they are perfect.
Love the Shoes
Love the "Repel" shoes, it's been a year now, I bought this pair in Nov 2021. This was the first time I tried the shoes category from SOLE, been wearing the flips since 2013/14, what a pleasant surprise. These shoes like the flip-flops provide an amazing stability and support which i think is the gold standard from this company. All of their products insoles, flips, shoes provide unparalleled support and stability. These shoes are true to size, I am size 7.5 and ordered size 8 so I could have some room for socks in winter. The seam is solid, shoes are water resistant, I have worn the pair in the snow, mud no issues at all. Easy to pull them on/off. Also I have worn the shoes below -10 with winter socks and they were solid, great grip on the snow and icy patches. Would eyes closed recommend this shoes for winters, fall and spring season.
Must have footbeds
I been wearing these insoles for a year now, I have mild Planter Fascitis and play active racquetball. The difference with and without is quite significant, the arch support and stability I get with these insoles is remarkable. Since my first purchase I have purchased few more insoles and have been using them for all other shoes (Casual, Winter Shoes). Eyes closed would recommend this product based on personal experience. Also these insoles give you same output as the custom ortho for which most of us pay over $300.
I've been using these insoles for a few weeks now in my work shoes. They're great! I'm on my feet for at least 8 hours every shift, with a lot of walking. No more foot or hip pain. I highly recommend them.
Good insole for ski boot
I'm an advanced skier. I bought this insole for my skiing activities. The insole has good support on the arch and it is comfortable. It helps me to get rid of knock keen, A frame, while I'm skiing. This insole helped me to solve the boot alignment problem in my case. It is a good insole.
I bought this insole for daily use, it is very comfortable and good arch support
Cozy and comfortable
Great footbeds, love the support and they make my blundstones so much more comfortable and cozy. They are definitely thick though so make sure you have enough room in your shoes. I'm wearing thinner socks to make it work (which is fine since they are nice and warm with the insoles)
Great for long distance backpacking
I’ve been backpacking for years and sore feet can sure ruin a trip faster than a mouse in your food bag. SOLE Active Thick insoles make long days on the trail a pleasure and are hard to beat.
Truly the best
I've been wearing Thin Sport insoles in my running shoes for years and they have kept my plantar fasciitis at bay. The thin profile fits well with athletic shoes.
I have been wearing SOLE insoles for years now to combat a neuroma in my foot . . . with great success. As a physical therapist, I have also recommended them to multiple clients who need better foot support.
Great for bike shoes
Love these, I finally found a pair of insoles that are strong and sufficient support for my extra high arches. Best part is they are thin, don't take up space and don't cause my feet to overheat. I've bought two pairs to use with different shoes.
Footbeds with metpads
These are my favourite insoles because of the met pad! The cork is an added bonus.
Best Footbeds ever!
I’ve been wearing these for a month after noticing my ankle was supinating. This was causing numbness and unsteady gait. These insoles have replaced the insoles in work and casual shoes. They are a great thickness! Love them! True to size in sneakers but had to size down for casual shoes.
Amazing Product & Service
I have purchased many of SOLE's products over the years and have always been pleased. I discovered their insoles many years ago at a running convention and they really helped with my plantar issue. Since then I have continued to buy their insoles and flip-flops. Great, responsive service on my last order especially - thanks again Riley!
comfortable, cradling, cushioned and with arch support and a met pad to keep my toes from ballerina-pointing!
I have very flat feet and spend a lot of time in work boots. Replaced the original insoles that came with my everyday boots with the Work Medium SOLE and I haven’t had knee pain in weeks.
Real quality, unique design, subpar durability?
These were purchased to help with plantar fasciitis pain and right when I received them I knew they were different from any other insole I'd used before. These insoles have very prominent sections of padding that provide support to portions of your foot that would only be barely touched by most other mainstream insoles, especially along the arch and ball of foot. The design of these is very appealing and unique, and the cork material is very satisfying to the eyes and feet! I would definitely recommend these to people looking for more comfort or dealing with pain, as these really helped me. The only issue I have is that after about a week or two, the heel portion, which was initially nicely padded, of the insole compressed down to almost flat, leaving the heel mostly unprotected from impact. The cork material might contribute to this but I also tend to put extreme pressure on my heels. I got these on clearance but next time I'd go for the Active models as they're said to be more durable. But if you have even pressure distribution, definitely check these out!
Great supportive insole
I replaced my worn out "Super Feet" insoles with the SOLE Everyday Medium insole. I spend many hours a day on my feet. These insoles have provided the support that I need to get through each day comfortably.
Absolute Game changer
I ordered some soles for my work boots. After wearing my flip flops all summer and than putting my work boots on for the first time in a while. I realized how comfortable this insole makes my boots. I recommend to everyone now.
Best insole I ever used
I tried many different insoles and this is the best I ever used. I've been using this brand for over 20 years and put it in all my shoes and ski boots.
Best Insoles for Flat Feet
I have been wearing these for more than 10 years. They were recommended to me by a physical therapist. I have flat feet which causes pain in my shins and knees, these insoles give me the support that I need and take away the pain.
Fit perfect in hubbys boots
My hubby has a pair of pull on fitted boots that he found didn't have enough arch support, these insoles fit with room to spare and made them his preferred footwear choice.
Perfect In Evey Way
Worked wonders for my foot pain. Since I started wearing them, my plantar fasciitis and metatarsal pain have been relieved. Thin insoles fit very nicely in low volume shoes.
These are the insoles my husband and I like to put into as many of our shoes as possible. He has high arches so never heat treats them, but I do like to heat treats them for a better fit. They are extra supportive for people that are on their feet all day.
Sole is the best
I've been wearing SOLE for years, closest insole I've found that is comparable to custom orthotics.
I purchased this insole after saw it on YouTube and all I can say that it is life changing product for me. I work as mail carrier, I walk a lot of miles everyday at work and I can say that I can tell the difference of this insole compare to any other ones that I have had before. My feet feels great all day and even after finishing my shift which usually lasts about 10 hrs day is still feels great. I highly recommend any SOLE products for anyone...
Great thin insoles
Just the insole I was looking for when I need a thinner option! Work great in my dress shoes!
My feet love ‘em
These are high quality insoles with the metatarsal pad. I am very happy getting premium product at an excellent price. The moulding process, which is simple to do at home, gives you a footbed specifically fitted for your foot.
Great for injury prevention while running
I started using these insoles and my foot related injuries/soreness have completely gone away without adding unnecessary bulk or weight to my shoes.
As comfortable as a SOLE insole can be
New shoes, new insoles. My feet feel great in any pair of shoes I own. Couldn’t move around without them
I’ve purchased three or four of these insoles and they have greatly improved the comfort and wearability of all the footwear. Recommended!
Can’t go wrong
I've used these insoles since my army days.
I suffer from flat feet + general discomfort when walking for long periods of time. I knew I needed some sort of insole and better foot support but didn't want to spend $600 on customized ones. I'm so glad I found these! Alex was sooooooo helpful in finding the suitable insole for what I wanted and needed - they almost feel customized! I've been wearing them for a month now and I feel so much more comfortable. I want to buy some for every shoe that I own.
Cheryl M Gallant
Happy and comfortable feet
I have other SOLE with Met pad insoles and got these cork ones and they are wonderful. They slip right in my sneakers and I can walk around comfortably. Thank you for making them!!
happy feet finally
best insoles ever
been wearing for weeks love them
by far the most supportive comfortable footbeds
been wearing for a couple of months now, have SOLE insoles in all footwear, highly recommended. Personally like the met pad versions in particular.
SOLE Softec Insoles have made my everyday shoes into zones of cozy comfort. The arches have molded into a perfect fit. Highly recommended.
I have mortons neuroma. Very painful. These insoles support my feet perfectly to almost eliminate any flare ups. They are very comfortable and long lasting. Highly recommend.
They're the best
I have been wearing SOLE insoles for 2 years now. I'm 6 foot, 370 pounds walking on concrete all day. These are the best hands down they last all day and you don't go home hurting or barely walking.
Best for work boot
I got this for my husband and he uses them in his steel-toe boots. It works great. The heat up feature made the insole fit better.
Good for boots and standing
Softer insoles for standing at work. A little thicker that fit perfectly in my Forsake boots.
Great little boot!
The back zipper makes these fun little boots easy to slip on and off. They are warm and comfy and have the great SOLE insole. I can wear these all day and stay comfortable with a spring in my step!
These insoles helped with my recovery from plantar fasciitis over 15 years ago, and I have been using them ever since.
Saved my feet
These are my third set of SOLE insoles. I had plantar fasciitis and my feet constantly hurt. I think this was from years of bad insoles.
I’ve developed a foot problem and proper insoles, like SOLE brand, have helped
Great boot inserts
I had been suffering from plantar fasciitis for months. I put these insoles into a recently purchased pair of Blundstone boots and they helped reduce the pain tremendously.
I tried various off-the-shelf insoles to deal with ball of foot pain usually experienced when playing sports. I must say that the "Active with the met pad" model by SOLE has been the most effective for me in relieving pain and discomfort. I've worn these now for the past several weeks and the insoles seem to have molded well to the shape and contour of my feet and are very comfortable. Very satisfied!
I find the quality and comfort of the footbed to be comparable to my expensive custom orthopaedic insoles for much less of the price!
Best Insoles Ever
Used these for weeks at work and loved them. Relieved foot and back pain.
Great support in all my athletic shoes
I've been wearing SOLE footbeds for several years. Whenever I buy a new pair of athletic shoes I also buy a SOLE insole for them.
I bought my first pair of insoles about six years ago to releive plantar pain and they really did the job! Since then I have purchased four more pairs and use them in all my shoes. So far, no more plantar problems.
Flipping over your flips
Seriously, my feet love the footbeds of your flips. Got my first pair of insoles too. Need them in all my shoes.
I have used these for years from my daily wear to trekking in Nepal. Having the option of three thicknesses and the moldability makes them so much better than standard insoles. Dont leave home without them.
These are perfect insoles. Comfy, squishy, arch support: everything you want.
Besides my four legged best friend basenji Lucy, my insoles are my second best friends! Taking walks is no longer painful, I can keep up with her for her daily two long walks! Thank you SOLE both Lucy and me!
My Only Flip
I have been wearing Balboa since fall of 2021 when I was searching for relief for my painful feet. I have multiple things going on - hallux rigidus, Morton's foot, high arch, hyperflexible foot and nerve entrapment. These flips allow me to walk around when I first get up without pain.....without excruciating pain. I don't wear them for hours as I need more support, but these have just the right contour and cushion for the first segment of my day. Sooo grateful to SOLE for this product as well as the insoles.
Can't beat SOLE's products!
I would never buy another kind of insoles. These are the best and are a real comfort to my sensitive feet.
My feet feel much better!
My feet feel much better walking around with these insoles in my shoes. I am very happy with my SOLE insoles, and I've now recommended them to each of my family members!
Love these insoles!
My podiatrist recommended these insoles and I am so glad she did! I've got these Active ones in my sneakers and hiking shoes, and so far- so great!
I've worn my SOLE insoles for about two weeks. After a few days, I noticed no foot pain or aching. I have no specific injury or pain, just aching. My feet feel good at all times. Very good product, and very comfortable.
Excellent value . Bought for my husband who constantly complained foot knee and hip pains. He says his feet no longer hurt at days end and he is able to walk again in evenings. Very comfortable and excellent fit
Absolutely love these footbeds
I have been wearing SOLE insoles for 8 years since my foot surgery & they have been my saving grace. I can’t imagine not having them.
These insoles have been life changing. From walking on concrete all day to pushing the limits of what the human body can endure during GORUCK events they remain comfortable and supportive. They are a real reason for comfort and support mile after mile. I have them in all of my shoes and boots and will continue to as long as they make them.
I have been using these insoles for several years and they have made such a difference to my ability to walk with comfort. My only disappointment is that SOLE does not make a shoe with the met pad included. I am an active senior who loves to walk, and this product enables me to do that. Thank you!
I had plantar fasciitis for 2 years and I love to hike. A friend gave me a pair of SOLE insoles to try. They are very nearly just as good as the custom insoles that I had made by my podiatrist.. I have two pair of custom insoles and three pair of Soles so that all my shoes have good insoles in them. I have long narrow feet with a high arch. I am very happy with Soles. They are pretty rigid, well shaped. yet shock absorbing. I recommend them.
I have been wearing the medium performance insoles for several years now. I am on my feet about 14 hours a day at work and walk about 12 to 18,000 steps on an average work day carrying tons of weight. These are the best insoles I have ever owned I now have them in my tennis shoes too. They last a long time and don't seem to get worn out very quickly like other shoe insoles. But I do rotate them daily. I cannot work without them. I have a high arch and plantar fasciitis and have zero foot pain with these inserts. I love them.
Barbara M Badgley
The best insoles ever!
This insole with met pad has saved my feet when wearing my Rykas. They are in my exercise shoes, and while I no longer jump as high or run, my feet are supported and without pain. The met pad has been the key. All my shoes, whether for exercising, walking or just everyday wear have Soles. Soooo much better than what I got from the foot doctor!
Very comfortable, supportive flip flop
I ordered the Malibu flip flops in navy and have been wearing them since mid-July. This is my first pair of SOLE flip flops with the cork footbed. I find them to be very comfortable, like all the other SOLE products I have. The cork has worn away a little bit around the ball of my foot, but that hasn't made them any less comfortable. I do put a lot of pressure on the ball of my foot, so I expected this type of wear. I have 3 pair of flip flops, a pair of shoes and numerous insoles from SOLE and I'm happy with all of them. I would definitely recommend SOLE to anyone who needs good, supportive footwear.
My physical therapist convinced me that I should try insoles, but the ones they had samples for in the office weren't a good match for me. My mother used this brand and recommended them. I haven't tried the heat molding yet (POTS issues), but I am 100% pleased with the support they give. Absolutely worth every penny. I've been using them daily for more than a month. It's surprising how much energy I save when my arches are supported and I don't have to consciously think about my ankle position.
I bought these last fall as I was working my way out of a bad nerve entrapment issue causing pain in my heel that stopped me from walking, SOLE insoles have been very important and time on these Balboa Flips is essential, especially first thing in the morning. I have a high arch. These fit perfectly and give just the right amount of support and cushion to get my foot used to the transition into the day, I hope that this sandal will still be represented in the new line up! Thank you SOLE for getting me back on my feet!
I had foot surgery and didn't need my custom orthotics anymore. My physical therapist helping me with foot rehab recommended these insoles for cushioning and some support. They have served my feet well. They have helped get me back out on the trails. My feet are happy.
Very surprised and pleased with this product! Working 12 hour shifts walking constantly was taking it's toll on my feet. Out of desperation I searched for cork insoles like Aetrex used to be and am very happy now! Thank you!
These insoles worked as advertised, my foot pain diminished after about a week.
Joseph F Dolowy III
My order was shipped promptly and as soon as I fitted the SOLE insoles to my shoes, my feet are much less painful and I am much happier: I could not recommend any product higher. If you need support I hope you find the fit and comfort that I have with SOLE insoles: I now have 3 pair distributed between my riding/walking shoes and hiking boots. Cheers and I hope each of you reading this can achieve more miles with more smiles from such quality foot support .
Perfect addition to hiking boots
These insoles are the perfect addition to my hiking boots. I wear them on long, demanding hikes and multi-day backpacking trips. My feet are less fatigued than with stock insoles. I prefer SOLE over other insole brands because they feel the most comfortable. They give great arch support without added weight. I notice that they do tend to crack underneath after about a year of use, but that could be due to excess moisture in the boot (after trekking in snow) or the fact that I switch them in and out of different pairs.
Work Great in Runners
I had tried the medium version of these in my runners but found that my foot was just too packed in for it to be comfortable. (This will depend on your particular foot in your particular shoe - someone else's experience may be quite different). I have been using the thin version now for a few weeks and my feet are happy. The insole is of typical high quality for SOLE products and the fit is true to the information on the SOLE website for my Asics runners.
Mr jon Mutiger
Great all day comfort
I haven't tried another insole I'd rather have in my shoes. These just fit my feet perfect and give me the ability to be on my feet all day without discomfort.
I'm so flat-footed that I could step on a dime while barefoot and burn my insole. But, I do like to wear sandals, and these fill the bill for arch support. My 1st pair lasted almost 5 years (wow!). The re-purposed cork is an environmental plus.
I have happy feet again!
My foot pain is gone. I purchased this product for my low profile sneakers and casual shoes. I already own SOLE insoles for my sport runners for jogging. They just didn't fit my other shoes for work (retail). I gave these insoles a chance and they didn't disappoint. I have been wearing them everyday for approx a month now. I am impressed with the cushion from the cork.
I have had multiple surgeries on my knees and walking proved painful most days. Since I have started using SOLE insoles the pain is minimal, which is wonderful. I buy quality shoes and quality insoles and they are worth every penny spent. I switch the insoles out every 4-5 months and keep on truckin. Thanks SOLE
Great fit. Feel fantastic. One of the only insoles I will use in my work boots. On my feet 12 hours plus a day and my feet, knees, and back feel great. Break in period about a week if you’ve never used them before because the support they give your feet is very different then other insoles. Highly recommend
The product arrived as advertised, well packaged and in a timely manner. The insoles are great quality. Very satisified
Kevin W Cumby
Great Foot Support!
This insole is a great foot support! Have them in my workshoes and feet feel really good! Will definitely buy another pair!
Glad I got the thin size
I’m exclusively a barefoot shoe wearer but was getting a lot of knee pain from walking so ordered insoles for my barefoot shoes before a trip to New York. So glad I ordered ‘thin’ as these were tight getting into my barefoot sneakers. I also didn’t think the ‘wide’ size was really wide enough for my monster feet but once they were in the shoes it was fine. I can’t really say whether these helped with my knee pain as it was still very much present during our trip but I think they helped a bit, and we did a lot of walking!
Anne M Wood
The Best Insole ever
I have worn this medium product before and it wears great especially if you follow the instructions of putting in the oven a short time and then having it mold to your foot . I buy new insoles every time i buy need sneakers .I have yet to find an insole that fits my fancy shoes a low pump . I recommend this insole to all people who are on their feet most of the work day
I have Morton's Neuroma and these insoles work just as well as Birkenstocks with no pain at all! I had hoped it would be a little narrow to fit in some of my flats. They do say you can cut it to size but I was nervous about doing that and I usually have to switch the insoles between shoes I'm wearing so that isn't ideal. But still, they do the job of getting rid of the pain, so I am happy!
Got them earlier this year & using them in my running shoes. I walk quite a bit & they are very comfortable. I need the met pad and the pain in my foot has subsided because of these insoles. I have a wide foot size 6 1/2 & ordered a size 7. They fit perfectly. I will buy them again.
My husband has flat feet, and his heels really bother him. He uses these insoles in his work boots and he tells me that they work every bit as good as his $500 custom made orthotics! Very happy that we tried them!
I have had SOLE insoles for many years now. The SOLE insole features that works for me are: 1) Rigid - I hate soft insoles. They are hard to put in and have no support. SOLE insoles is just perfect going in. 2) Support - It took awhile but once the insole got molded to my feet, it feels so good. No more feet pains.

Frederic D Vellucci
A vast improvement
I have an old pair of closed sandals that I love. These provide no support to speak of but are well ventilated and extremely comfortable for short-term wear. I replaced the thin insole that had no arch and little padding with these insoles. The result was transformative. Even with the outstanding support they provide, these insoles take up almost no additional room in the shoe. These shoes are now among those that I rotate for regular all-day wear.
Randall B Brown
The best insoles ever!
I have so many great and expensive shoes, and I have made them all better with the addition of these insoles from SOLE. They add support, make them much more comfortable and correct my stance. I have been using SOLE for years, with thousands of miles hiked, and now I have them in all of my shoes. So much better!!!
save my sole!
I have 5 or 6 pairs of SOLE insoles now and they have given my feet what they need to continue with my 10-16,000 step days. I got a prescription for orthopedics a few years ago and thought I would try these first. I started with the cork ones, which I still love, but had an issue when one of them got wet. Now I use the cork when I know I will stay dry, and the "active" for wet or sweaty conditions. They've been great. My feet thank you.
Need another pair for Golf!
First off I ordered sandals which happened to have a minor defect. I made the call and was immediately sent another pair. Great customer service. Now on the insole. Fit perfectly in my runners and have great support. Well made and I think they will last quite some time. Looks like I'll be ordering another for golf shoes
Have been using these insoles in different thicknesses for several years. Am a reasonably higher mileage cyclist , just over 15K last year. The moldability of these provide excellent fit and comfort. Highly recommend! 👍🤓
I have wide "duck" feet. These insoles works better than anything I ever tried. Will buy more when need more
Go to insoles
I've been using SOLE footbeds for many years and have several pairs in various thicknesses for different applications. For my running shoes and slippers, I use the thin ones and for hiking, working and winter boots, the medium or full volume type work well. Most of the time, I just pop them in and go but I have also used the heat-molding method and that can help to adjust them perfectly. I have wide feet and they are spreading a bit more as I get older, so the wide option works well for me. They are also very durable and I have a couple of sets that have outlasted more than one pair of shoes. Highly recommended!
Great product Two thumbs up
I have purchased all 3 thicknesses of SOLE insoles and I love them all. I bought the thicker version because I have some shoes that are a bit big for me to accommodate a permanent bump on my heel. They are comfortable and provide excellent arch support. Customer service is also excellent and they arrived quickly. Highly recommend.
Absolutely best ones out there.
I wear these insoles in my shoes at work. Usually around 12 plus hours a day. Most other insoles that I've tried have "flattened" and lost all support within the first 2 hrs but not these - with these I can go all day and my body doesn't feel like I've been on my feet for the whole day. Simply the best!!
Steven T Orr
Very effective ! Say good bye to heel pain!
These insoles work great! I have them in every pair of my shoes. The heel pain from plantar fasciitis has not reoccurred since using them, which is huge because I am on my feet all day.
Good replacement or upgrade for current hiking shoes
I have struggles with plantar fasciitis and have to be very careful when buying shoes. I have a pair of excellent hiking shoes that I used before my injury and wanted to find a supportive insert so I could keep using my otherwise perfect, expensive hikers. The SOLE insoles were as described. They were thin but I still needed to take out the hiker insole because it felt cramped with the insole on top of the inner shoe liner. One thing I didn't like was that the insoles do not come in half sizes so it requires a lot of shoving and pushing to get them down into the toe. I know the directions say to size up and cut them to size, BUT I didn't like the thoughts of chopping up such an expense insole in case I made a mistake. They initially hurt my feet and felt really hard, but as I walked around in them, I got used to them and they seemed better. I have yet to go on a hike longer than a kilometer so I can't say how comfortable they are when wearing them for long periods of time.
Pamela A Bartsch
For years I've had massive pain in my feet due to fallen arches. Working 10 hour shifts became a nightmare. Honestly I'm not even sure how I came across SOLE insoles..but I thank the Lord above that I did! They are true to size. The Thick has firm padding which I love. And sturdy arch support that does not hurt my arches (flat feet). If you ave pronation problems you really should try these.
Very satisfied with Active Thick insole
I've now tried 3 insoles and my preferred is Active Thick without Met pad. Better to order the larger size and it's easy to trim it down to fit perfectly. Relieves foot pain for outdoor work boots.
James D Geppert
I’ve had these insoles for a few months and there amazing. I had an Achilles tendon sprain and always had stiffness. After wearing these insoles for a few weeks I no longer had any stiffness. I can walk as far as I want with total comfort.
SHAUN JAMES OMARA
Thin, cool, comfortable, barefoot ergonomics
As advertised, they are are slim enough for the most low profile dress shoe or soccer cleat. The met pad may aid with plantar issues. While new the cork gives me confidence they won't restrain odour. Perhaps my imagination but the light colours offer a cooling feel. The insole topper is even comfortable enough to do some sickles training!
Best insole I've found
I'm on my 3rd pair of SOLE Active Wides & they're definitely the best insoles I've come across. I run 30 miles a week, mostly on the road, at paces from 5:30-8:30/mile. I wear Altras for both road & trail, and I use one pair of these insoles for every 2 pairs of shoes. The Good: A problem I've always had with running footwear is compression in the ball of the foot leading to weirdness in my stride or lots of discomfort over time. These insoles are so dense that the above compression isn't an issue. I'm putting 400-500 miles on each pair of shoes (800-1000 miles per pair of insoles) now without any stride-altering compression in either the shoe midsole or the insole itself. I'm considering using them for a 3rd pair of shoes actually, because after 1000 miles the biggest sign of wear is discoloration where my foot contacts the insole, rather than deterioration of the insole itself. The Bad: They're really hard. If you like a cushy running shoe experience this is NOT that. But if you're looking for a great springboard to push off of mile after mile after mile, these are your insoles. 10/10 would recommend.
One word- Amazing!
I love running and working out but have flat feet. For months my hip and knee have been hurting. I decided to give these insoles a try and can’t believe how amazing they are. They provide the perfect arch support to align my body. No more pain! I bought three pairs!
Best insoles out there!
I love everything about these insoles. As someone who is almost 100lbs overweight, my arches started falling and extra pressure on my knees and ankles was causing gait issues and pressure on my joints. These insoles have been instrumental in providing support to my arches, feet and keep my gait aligned without the coddling of medical orthoses. I still want my muscles to work and be strong while I work on slowly losing the weight. These insoles are thin enough to fit into my runners easily and they also provide better support than most other insoles out there!
Cheryl A Blum
This support helps with my limp since my Achillies tendon surgery. Very comfortable. Highly recommend if you have a limp. I have used this for 6 months now for the left shoe only.
Robert A Durma
I have been using SOLE inserts for many years. They really help with my plantar fasciitis. I used to use the fully cushioned ones, but switched to using the thin (Active Thin) version in conjunction with foam cushioned insoles from the store. I actually put the store insoles over the Active Thins on the opposite foot. Putting them opposite places the high arch of the cushioned insoles to the outside of my foot giving support across the whole front of my heel, not just the inside. Took a day or two to get used to, but it works great in preventing the fasciitis.
I have been searching for a while for a flip flop with good arch support. For years I’ve dealt with foot and knee pain from having flat flip flops. I was excited to come across these when I bought insoles. These are comfortable to wear, my feet don’t slip around when wet and they have good traction on wet ground. The only setback would be the hard plastic piece that goes between your toes, that might be more comfortable if it was fabric. But it was only the start of the season and my callous hadn’t formed yet. I would definitely buy these again. Thanks
New to Sole products
Have been wearing sandals for many years. Tried these SOLE sandals for the first time. Really like the look and very comfortable. Will definitely be getting SOLE again Have since also bought a pair of insoles for my running shoes. Also top notch !
These are THE BEST insoles I have ever tried. I am a chef and slid them into my Birkis and no more sore feet. I will continue to buy these and recommend them to my fellow chefs!
These are great
These are by far the best plantar fasciitis insoles I have ever used/ordered. I've dealt with plantar fasciitis for about 10 yrs and I've had surgery on both my feet for it. I will continue to order these to help my condition.
John C Bartlett
My husband is on his feet a lot and these insoles really do really do the trick. His feet no longer ache and don't feel tired.
Orthopedic comfort & support
I found these after two purchases of insoles. Love the eco-materials but needed help with sore feet! Dealing with multiple foot issues- Morton's Neuroma, Ingrown big toenail, Spring gardening rush after being on my feet in home healthcare a long time. These allow no-pressure on the sore foot forefront, and cushion for working without having to deal with water in shoes! I even brought them to work. Now looking for a sandal with a back so I never slip out of it!
This is a great product. I use them in my hiking boots and they are very comfortable. I struggled with foot problems before using SOLE insoles. They have allowed me to return to normal activity and I am enjoying hiking again. Thanks for a great product.
shaun c murphy
These insole products have corrected a problem with my daughters walking and alleviated pain. I am delighted. This was why we ordered a second pair and will order more for each of her pairs of shoes. When ordered, they arrived two days later. Great work. Thank you!
pain no more
These insoles eliminated the foot pain I experience while cycling from Morton's Neuroma. I highly recommend these for anyone else suffering from foot pain.
Melinda A Ezzo
What a difference
My doctor recommended this product to me and I'm so glad he did. This insole makes my shoes so comfortable. Now when I wear shoes without them, it doesn't feel quite right. I've been wearing the Active Medium version in my athletic shoes for several months now and I love them!
These are by far the most comfy flips I have ever owned and they don't hurt my feet. Was suffering from planter fasciitis, that is now a thing of the past with these shoes and several of their insoles in every other shoe I own. Its comfort for my feet from now on. My foot is wide as well and the flexible bands on these are perfect. Tried the Balboa but sadly don't fit my wideness.
Not for wide feet
I purchased a pair of Costa flips and LOVED them so much. The straps are flexible so they move with you. I then purchased the Balboa and the straps are not flexible and unfortunately don't fit my wide foot. Better to go with the Costa if you have wider feet like me. Too bad cause I love these products. Also love the insoles. I have purchased several sets for all of my family. Great products for comfort and the environment.
Great online service
I have had these insoles before and was so very happy to be able to order them online. Ordering online was easy and they arrived within 24 hours. Well done
Thank You SOLE for giving me my life back
I have numerous issues with my feet. Ball of the foot pain, heel pain and bad arches. I had tried many different products in the past with very limited results. Then I discovered the SOLE products. Instantly after inserting these into my shoes I got some relief. As the insole wore in some more, they got more and more comfortable. I was never able to spend many hours on my feet before getting the SOLE product. This product allows me to function again! I was so pleased with the results that I ordered some more for spares, as I now know that I can't survive without them!
Dance shoes that feel good!
I'd already owned a number of pairs of SOLE insoles and since I'm a fella that has way too many shoes it was time to expand the number of shoes I could wear while keeping my feet and back happy at the same time. This pair got trimmed down to fit a number of pairs of dance shoes I have. The shoes don't have insoles normally and while the thin ones have changed the heel cup feel a bit by adding the extra height, the small loss on heel lock is by far made up for in standing and movement comfort. Comparing them to the non-cork SOLE insoles I don't know if I notice a difference however I also haven't tried each in shoes of similar construction to see if the cork ones gives any extra cushioning. Either way I'm still very happy with the purchase.
I'd made it until my late 30's until I found myself in a knee doctors office and apparently over all these years I should have been wearing orthotics... who knew? Prior to this I had gotten a few pairs of SOLE insoles just because I thought they were comfy so in the desire for sandals I knew exactly where they should come from. I'd always hated flip flops as they never stayed put on my feet and I'd have to use my toes to try and desperately hold onto them. These ones are fantastic! They became my indoor 'house slippers' over the winter and felt really nice climbing stairs and standing around in. I expected to only wear them occasionally for water activities / pools but now I feel I may want to just keep my indoor pair clean and have another pair to wander around the outside world in.
Darlene L Diminutto
I am a kayaker. I have added these insoles to my rubber boots. I can now spend hours in the ocean or glacier feed streams without my feet freezing.
Darlene L Diminutto
Can hike all day long
I placed these insoles into my hiking and cross country ski boots. I can go for hours without any discomfort.
Darlene L Diminutto
Sore feet relief
I play pickle ball and badminton. Both can be very hard on your feet. The SOLE insoles are extending my play time.
Debbie H Powers
2nd Time Purchasing
Before my orthopaedic Dr recommended SOLE products to me, you can bet that I would get a cortisone injections once a year. I have not experienced any problems with my Morton's Neuroma since I have been wearing the insoles in my walking shoes and using the flip flops all summer long. I have not had an injection in about 4 years. I would call that a very successful and reliable product. The only reason I ordered the Baja flip is that my old ones broke after 4 years of consistent wear.
Little things in life make a big difference
I have been wearing these for quite a while and love them. I recently purchased a pair for my 72 year old mother. Mom was experiencing heal pain. The pain was at its worst first thing getting out of bed, or after sitting for prolonged periods of time. Once she was up walking the pain would get better, but never completely go away. The pain in her heels caused her to walk with a wobble. I bought these insoles for my mom, and had them shipped directly to her house. Mom called me a few minutes after receiving them. Within a few minutes of wearing them she felt some pain relief and more stable walking. After a few days of wearing them all day the heal pain has completely gone away. I will be ordering a second pair, so that she has a pair for her house shoes, and outside shoes. Thank you to the people who designed these insoles.
Why I recommend Sole
I walk on concrete floor all day and my feet were so sore at the end of the day. Since finding SOLE insoles, my feet feel fabulous. The way they mold around my feet, I can spend the entire 8 hrs walking and my feet, knees and hips are not in pain. There is cushion, comfort and end of day relief. They last longer than my shoes do, I have used them consistently for over 3 yrs and would (and do) recommend them to anyone who needs comfort on their feet!
I have two very different feet, one is especially problematic due to an old injury. My SOLE insoles help tremendously due to the form fitting and high quality construction. Great insoles.
These things are great. I've had these insoles in for about 45 days. I'm walking on concrete floors for 12 hr+ a day and my feet don't hurt one bit. Use to have heel pain about 2/3 through my work day and now none.
I have used SOLE products for the last 5 years and have always been impressed with the product. I used to wear orthotics, my Physio recommended SOLE and I've never gone back. I have recommended this product to friends and family who also have enjoyed ending foot pain. Every pair of shoes I wear has SOLE insoles
This is a great product! My plantar fasciitis went away within 1 week after I started using these in my shoes.
I started using SOLE insoles when I started having foot problems from lack of arch support at least 10 years ago. They have been 5 star the whole time, relieved all my pain. I have worn SOLE sandals as well and they worked great for me. I highly recommend SOLE products and have been in my shoe repair shop as well as sharing them with friends and family. Thank you SOLE!
I use these insoles in all my shoes: runners, boots, dress shoes because since I've been using them for at least 4 years, my Nortons neuroma has not bothered me. Metatarsal pads in your shoe inserts and removable metatarsal pads can also offload the ball of your foot where you are having pain. They are comfortable & I use a variety of thicknesses depending on the shoe and activity.
Eugene L Smith
These really helped my ankle.
These insoles have helped my ankle, which is why I bought them originally. As a side benefit, I noticed my knees and hips also improved greatly.
Aimee J Wiese
Obsessed - theme park tested!
I stumbled across these by accident while reordering insoles and I'm so glad I did. Had to order the mens (big feet problems). They did not disappoint. First pair I bought were initially a little tight but broke in perfectly after 2-3 wears. These babies are next level. I did a full park open to park close day at Disney in these bad boys and I had zero issues. FULL. DAY. AT. DISNEY. They held up walking around St Augustine for a whole day. They've held up to fishing. Honestly the perfect Florida flip flop to me. The best part is they provide support but don't look like those clunky orthopedic disasters that have been the standard for years. Freaking life changing, I've bought 3 pairs already and plan to buy more.
What a difference!
I tore my arches over a year ago, and they've caused near constant pain since. I figured I'd try the met pad souls. At first they didn't feel right, and I figured I was just gonna have to suck it up. I kept wearing them in hopes that they'd do something eventually. (Kind of like a painful massage) Within a couple weeks, the pain that has been haunting my arches had subsided. I am in awe! Truly didn't think insoles could make this kind of difference! I am beyond grateful! Truly appreciated!
Perfect in winter hikers
Thank goodness for these insoles. I live in an area that doesn't have sidewalks everywhere. With my plantar fasciitis, I need to feel secure when I am out in the elements. Once I realized how reliable this footbed was, I knew I could purchase footwear without worrying about comfort and pain management.

This review is on the "Performance Wide Thick" I also bought the Active ones, but I haven't used them yet. I suffer from lower back pain (sciatica). This pain hit me pretty hard. I see doctors about my lower back. That's all they are focused on: my lower back. I started to think about my childhood and how I needed arch support in my shoes. Knowing general construction and basic biology, a improper foundation leads to a poor construction relying on that foundation. I started looking at arch support inserts. Most are just a heel cup with a partial sole. The ones that were a full footbed were gel or memory foam as padding. Gel leave your foot in it's own sweat. That creates foot rot. Foam collects the sweat and grows bacteria. I came across a "SOLE" ad online. It caught my interest. I started to read these reviews on most of the different styles to order from. I did the fitting questionnaire to find what I might be looking for. I ordered both that came up being that they have the return policy also they are both different materials. When I received them I looked at both and felt the cork ones would be more cushion. I work on my feet 6-8 hours straight per shift. I heated the cork ones in the over per instructions and I haven't looked back. It's been a couple months now and from day one of wearing them my back pain has subsided. I still need surgery on my back, but I believe with these "SOLE" inserts I'll have a better foundation to help strengthen my frame during healing. Yes I would recommend these inserts to those looking for comfort and support. Also those looking for lower back pain relief. I wear a whole size in shoes so I just order that size of inserts. They fit my shoe like it belongs. Nice bed for my foot to sit on. The cork is very comfortable they seem to form to your foot and hold it in your shoe.
I have trouble with metatarsalgia and pain on the top of my feet along the my toes. I have a pair of custom orthotics for my work shoes but needed something for all my other shoes to keep my feet in check all day long. These give my feet relief now. I also ordered flip flops because these insoles work so well

I have been using SOLE inserts for about the last 10 years. I started out using them to get rid of plantar fasciitis- and I’ve never had it since. They offer great support and they last a long time. Every shoe I have has SOLE inserts.
Recommended by a podiatrist, these are the best insoles I've found, for relieving my plantar fasciitis. Love them - they are super comfortable, and make a huge difference in pain level of my feet.
Fantastic support, Fantastic Customer Service!
I have been using SOLE insoles for many years now. They are the most supportive and customizable insole products on the market. I love the Active line and the Performance line as well. With multiple sets, I can customize my footwear depending on the activity. I have had custom orthotics and definitely prefer SOLE insoles. In fact, I haven't worn my orthotics in years and have about $1000 worth just sitting in a box. SOLE's customer service and commitment to being environmentally friendly is outstanding. I'll be a loyal customer for life :)
Joy E Hopkins
These insoles work wonderful with tennis shoes as long as your shoe is structured high enough when you can't pull out the original insole. That would be my only advice is make sure you look at your shoe to see which insole will fit best. They are very comfortable and hold their shape. I have feet that are leaning inward due to always wearing slippers as I work from home due to Covid-19. This insole is helping me correct the problem and is comfortable to wear.
Joy E Hopkins
From working from home as a result of covid-19, I was in slippers all the time and my feet were not getting the support they needed. As I walked with my husband he noticed how bad my foot leaned to the inside and I realized that my right knee especially was sore all the time. I realized I needed to get an insole that could help me correct the problem. That's when I ran across SOLE. I really like the thin insole as it fits into any shoe. It offers amazing support and is comfortable to wear. I have been wearing them them for several months and they are still are holding their shape beautifully!

Trail kings for sure
On the Appalachian Trail folks like me are referred to as a LASH. Long A++ Section Hiker. In my late 50's knocking out a long day on the trail would be a chore without my SOLE Active Thick. I've worn these insoles for years. In the last few years I've completed over 1800 miles of the AT using these gifts to humanity. Mostly in week long trips of up to 101 miles. Not to mention the 200 or more other miles of trail I knock out backpacking and day hiking each year. I always have a new pair waiting in the wings ready to slip in when the old pair give out. I've recently added the met pad feature to aid my worn out old feet. Works great.
In My Soles
This product was recommended to me by my chiropractor. I must say, I was a skeptic however after wearing my insoles I found instant relief. My insoles fit perfectly, are extremely comfortable and have given me so much relief. I'm very pleased with this product and highly recommend these insoles.
I love these! They’re definitely the thickest of my SOLE insoles. I typically wear the Active Thick with met pad and these are ever so slightly thicker. They’re not quite as warm as I had hoped but they definitely add coziness to my boots. I love the added cushioning the wool offers. I have a plaguing case of tendinitis in one of my feet, so the more cushioning the better! Definitely my new favourite insoles for the colder Canadian months!
All about the forefoot
From a tiny functional foot clinic serving Yukon Territory and northern BC, SOLE Active Medium is the only insole recommended. Recently purchased 5 pairs to have on hand for clients. Bonus dollars will directly benefit remote harder to reach clients. :) I no longer wear the product - which is a good thing b/c my foot, with the assistance of SOLE, is now barefoot. I like SOLE b/c it helps people's feet, lower limb, pelvis and lower back regain function after years of foot binding. SOLE provides the heal cup, active arch support and the vital forefoot needed for people to regain mobility while comfortably supported. Specific injuries and pain I recommend SOLE treat are the forefoot - which is stabilized when the heel, in the heel cup of the SOLE anchors the foot allowing the forefoot (metatarsals) to regain their beautiful full function - all the way to the tips of each straight toe - which is why I often recommend the wide.
These insoles are as good as my custom orthotics. I use them daily running or walking! Great arch support and nice padded heel cushion. Definitely helps my plantar fasciitis pain.
I love my insoles
This is my second set of SOLE Active Medium Wide insoles and I have been using them for the past year. I walk and hike a lot and have ongoing issues with soreness in my feet and my knees. These insoles have reduced the pain in my feet and I can walk even farther these days and not take so many rest days. The insoles are comfortable and the fit is true to size so they slip into my shoes like they are made for them.

Ball of Foot pain
Bought these insoles to see if they would help with pain in toes and ball of foot. They have helped a great deal and have now purchased three pairs to keep in different shoes. They are comfortable and fit perfect in my shoes.
Performance Thin Soles
I purchased two pairs of these insoles for use in ski boots. I purchased one for myself, and one for my wife. My wife and I have put about 20 days and a few short tours on these insoles since buying them in the middle of February and we both love them. My arches have a tendency to hurt after a day of staying on my feet, these insoles have alleviated a lot of that arch pain. My wife broke her ankle a few years back and sometimes complains about pain and the feeling of instability in that ankle especially when we are doing tours. Since using this insole she feels much more supported and a lot of that pain has gone away. As far as performance goes these insoles are a giant leap over the stock insoles we were using in our current boots and not nearly as expensive as custom insoles. They were also easy to install and form, and as you can imagine the more days you put on these the more comfortable they become! Since using these in my ski boots I have plans to buy a pair for my work-boots. Due to the nature of my job I often times end up walking several miles in my work-boots inspecting job sites, which often leads to very sore feet at the end of the day.
Relieves foot pain
My podiatrist recommended these insoles and they help with foot pain . I need to get more for the rest of my shoes as currently I am just using them in my hiking boots. I wore deck shoes today without the insole and my feet really hurt!
Foot pain is gone
I purchased these insoles several weeks ago after having significant foot pain for many months. The discomfort when walking was gone after one week of wearing these insoles. I have purchased two more pairs for my other shoes as well.

Love these soles!
I am a physical therapist and scrutinize products I buy and recommend. I have been a fan of SOLE insoles for several years now. I previously had custom orthotics, but find that the SOLE insoles work better for me in all shoes. I was pleased to find the Performance Thins, as I am a runner and value their lightness and low profile. I have also purchased them for all three of my sons who are soccer players. Soccer players are particular about their feet and shoes; most insoles have been too heavy and too thick for them. The Performance Thins are perfect.
Nice and eco friendly
Tried these a few times in my cycling shoes. Nice and thin. Metatarsal pad is good, if it’s in the correct spot for you. Not as rigid it seems as regular SOLE insoles so may not be as supportive for some folks. I like the idea of cork from an environmental point of view. I’m not sure though that it will offer the incredible durability and longevity that SOLE's regular insoles do. Even if they only last half as long they’re good value.

Work Boot Perfection
I bought these for my work boots. I have to wear rubber boots that have no support for my job. These basically made my feet feel like I was wearing a pair of sneakers. I can easily make it through my long work days with no pain. Great insoles.
I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. I’m a believer in quality insoles, so have been wearing them for many years. I have a high arch and the cork molds to my footprint better than other materials. I own four different sets of SOLE footbeds, but the cork is my favorite.
I've always had a problem with foot pain wearing shoes, ever since I was young; I just thought it was normal to have aching feet after spending a day in shoes. Sneakers, flip-flops, dress shoes, boots, it didn't matter; everything hurt. When a shoe sales person at The Right Shoe in Vancouver suggested in 2016 that I try SOLE footbeds, I was skeptical because I didn't really believe they could help. She told me to trust her, that they had a return policy if I wasn't satisfied, and that she thought the "aggressive arch support" design would really help my tired, aching feet. So I listened to her and got a pair of Active Thicks for my Bluntstones and I was converted overnight. Those Bluntstones went from being those cool boots that I really liked but always avoided because of fatigue and pain, to becoming my daily shoes. No pain or fatigue, even after hours and hours of walking in them, day after day! Transformative and life-changing. I went back and got a pair Active Thins for my Cons too, and when I started spending more time in dress shoes, I got some for those as well. Now, every single pair of shoes and boots that I own has a pair of SOLE footbeds in them—Thursdays, AEs, Clarks, Vessis, chukkas—and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love that SOLE is designed locally (I'm in Vancouver, BC); I love their company philosophy of reduced environmental impact, carbon negativity, wine cork recycling (I make and bottle my own wine too, so it's a real plus for me), planting trees, giving to charities, donating to the needy, and social and ecological responsibility in general; I love the fit and the design; I love love love the comfort. They literally transform any pair of shoes from being totally insane torture devices into comfortable, meaningful footwear that reasonable people can actually wear, walk around, and stand in. Amazing! I mean, what's the point of even wearing footwear if it makes your feet worse and causes pain? And why did it take so long for me to discover SOLE? Seriously. Just get them. Thank you, SOLE, for making my foot life pain-free! I will always be grateful, and I will always have your footbeds in my shoes!

Plantar Fasciitis Gone!
Somewhere 30 years ago I developed plantar fasciitis when walking 10 miles a day as a meter reader. Over the years I've had many steroid injections, custom orthotic insoles and countless bottles of NSAIDs. None of these have helped more than SOLE insoles. With every knew pair of shoes I buy the first thing I do is rip out the insoles and put in SOLE insoles. My wife developed plantar fasciitis two years ago while walking on cement floors all day at work. She started using SOLE insoles too. She saw a podiatrist for an injection. He told her custom insoles are no better than SOLE. Our household is sold on SOLE!
I have had two different SOLW products. Both have been amazing and have helped me tremendously. The first was before foot surgery and without it I would not have been able to work the way that I did. After surgery I did not need as much support and they had something for that as well. The met pad is a life changer and it fits perfectly to my foot even without heating in the oven to form it. I will have to have insoles for the rest of my life and this will definitely be the place I will get all future insoles for myself and family!

Great for backpacking
Been using these insoles for years. They fit great. I’ve hiked over 1800 miles of the Appalachian trail over the last few years along with around 200 miles of local backpacking each year. I always order in advance so I have a pair waiting for when I grab a new pair of boots.
Just buy them!!!!
My son has plantar fascitis and could hardly walk after practice. We have tried many different insoles and finally tried these. I can honestly say that these were the only ones that worked. With in a week he could go to practice without foot pain afterwards. We are getting ready to order him more for his other shoes!!!! He wears a size 8 basketball shor and the size 8 insoles fit perfectly with out trimming. They do not slide around and he has zero complaints!!!! Trust me.....we have tried them all and these are the only ones to help him.
Really love these insoles. The Met Pad is a nice addition and adds a nice "bump" in the middle of the pad that supports the padding of my foot. Super durable and super form fitting. Great value!
DOUGLAS SELBY PACK
So far so good
I bought these for my walking/hiking insoles. They feel great and I have the support I need in my arches and heels.
The bottom of this insole is much more comfortable than the regular insole. I’ve been using the other versions for years and when they wear out you can “feel” the hard plastic on the bottom. This insole I’m not sure what or why but is much better.
Wendy K Bellows
My entire family (husband, son, daughter, and myself) LOVE this one! The fact that it is thin helps it fit well in some shoes where other insoles would be too high and the metatarsal "bump" does wonders. My husband has neuropathy in his feet and the met pad helps.
I use them in every boot and shoe
I found out about these insoles 7 years ago and have used them in every boot/shoe I purchased. I own them in every thickness, some cork, some regular. They are absolutely amazing once you wear them long enough for the custom fit. My only issue is sometimes it’s difficult to decide which thickness because of heel lift. This normally goes away after I wear them a couple weeks. I highly recommend them.
COMFORTABLE SLIDE SLIPPERS
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE COMFORTABLE SLIDE SLIPPERS. I WAS TOLD BY MY DOCTOR TO WEAR AN ARCH SLIPPERS, AND WHEN I ORDERED IN INSOLES, I SAW THE SLIPPERS OFFERED, I ORDERED AND IT HAS BEEN MY ONLY SLIPPERS I WEAR. VERY COMFORTABLE AND HELPED MY FOOT PAINS
I have flat feet and wide feet, so I need comfortable and supportive insoles for work shoes. I’ve been wearing them for a month now and I am very impressed how comfortable they are and I don’t have to break them in. Hard to find all you need in a insole! Very happy!
Best insole love the thinness.
The Active Thin and the Performance Thin are the best inner soles on the market. I need the met pad too. Most insoles are too thick. They make your shoe tight or a toe rubs. I have many. I like to keep in all my sport shoes. I have been using for several years. Ever since a bout with planter fasciitis.
These Active Mediums are perfect for me. Just the right support and also comfortable. I can get them in my Hoka's with ease and they are not too thick and the arch is not too high. I don't feel that I am on an insole like you usually do with a custom orthotic. They work for me. Worth a try for someone who has slight pronation. Take advantage of SOLE's return policy. You have nothing to lose.
I can run!
Every time I'd try to run, I'd end up with terrible knee pain after about 1/4 of a mile that would last for several days. I was trying knee and hip exercises with no relief. I finally looked towards my feet and found an over-pronation. With these insoles, I can run pain free! They also make my everyday shoes more comfortable. Thanks SOLE!
Great insoles. Super customer service.
My Podiatrist recommended SOLE orthotic inserts. He said they were as good as the custom ones his office could order. He knew the price and told me which model to order. He also told me to not go barefoot. He said SOLE had a flip flop with the orthotic built in if the inserts worked. I ordered just the inserts at first. They came within 3 days They were easy to adjust to. I have been wearing them for 2 months. It seems to be correcting my foot issues. So I ordered another pair of inserts and the flip flops. They took longer to arrive. I emailed the company about the order. They responded right away. I am very satisfied.
Quick and Easy
I was impressed how quick and easy the insoles were to customize to my feet. Literally minutes. My feet have felt so much better now that I wear them everyday in my work boots.
Laura M Szilier
This was my first purchase of SOLE insoles. I heard about this company by doing a Google search for ski boot insoles for metatarsal foot pain. I've been suffering from foot pain in the balls of my feet for a number of years and my ski boots exacerbate the pain. I've tried other insoles in my boots which has helped a bit, but I still experience some pain after a day of skiing. I purchased these insoles prior to this year's ski season and so far, they have helped tremendously! I just returned from a 4-day ski vacation, which normally would cause a lot of foot pain, and I was so impressed with how comfortable these insoles are in my ski boots and that I was able to ski for multiple days in a row with hardly any discomfort. I plan on purchasing another pair of insoles for my street shoes as even regular shoes cause discomfort when walking.
A decent insole
I started using the Active Medium right away, and used my own weight to break it in. I find it very good, it fits in all my shoes. I may try the Thick at some point as well, as I walk a lot and may need the extra cushion. All in all, a great insole!
Great insoles. Super customer service.

gary w payne
I'm always looking for insoles for my boots. I have high arches, narrow heels, and am prone to plantar fasciitis. I have spent a lot of money on custom insoles throughout the years for my boots, with mixed results. I have been very pleased with these insoles. These fit the boots well, size wise. I have purchased them in thick, medium and thin thicknesses to accommodate different sock thicknesses for warm to cold seasons. I use these in my mil spec boots, my hunting boots, and my hiking boots. I haven't had much luck with heating them to form to my foot faster, but I just break them in with a few miles walking, and they seem to form to my feet pretty quick. These are new for me, so I can't speak for durability yet. Very pleased with them so far. Get some!

Best Inserts Ever!!!!
Title says it all. Best insoles I've ever had, and I've probably tried over 20 different brands to help with plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia. Within just a few days, almost all the pain was gone. Will never buy another brand of insoles, a customer for life!
I have used these insoles in my winter boots for about 6 weeks. The are super comfortable and supportive. Previous pain I had wearing these boots is gone. The insulation on the bottom of the insole is a nice touch. These are quality insoles.
Better than expected
Love these Insoles So much that I ordered a second pair to go into my ski boots and my every day snow boots. Before these insoles, my feet were constantly cold and it’s unbelievable the huge improvement I feel. I suffer from advanced plantar fasciitis and this is a huge relief. I would highly recommend all of soles insoles as I have a significant improvement in my condition. I especially recommend these wool insoles for winter. I will be ordering more soon.
I really like these. This thick insole was just what I needed to take up a little extra room in some boots that were slightly too big. These make wearing winter hiking boots much more comfortable for longer periods of time. I am on my feet all day and have had plantar fasciitis a number of times so I have Soles in many of my shoes to prevent a reoccurance.
SOLE is the best product for your feet
Starting from the beginning, about five years ago I got plantar faciitis on both my feet. Having to deal with the pain while working on feet for 8 hours a day was rough. Almost a year later I found SOLE products through a foot specialist. My life changed and I was cured of this issue within 6 months of using your insoles and sandals every time I was on my feet. Now with these clog style shoes I use for work everyday I feel confident my feet will never have any issues ever again. I highly recommend SOLE to anyone who works on their feet for any length of time. These shoes are made with high quality materials, the pair of sandals I wear only when I'm home I've wearing for 6 years and it's still in great shape. Extremely comfortable and fit very well.
I am a big fan of the insoles and these boots were just as good. I wear them in the snow regularly.
If you’re looking for an insole for cycling shoes the Performance Thin with met pad is your answer. These fit great in several different pairs of shoes without taking up a lot of volume. I have noticed a significant reduction in ankle/ foot soreness during long rides over the winter. The lightweight cork is great to keep the weight down as race season approaches. Every level of cyclist should own a pair of these!
Works great for Mortons Neuroma and tendonitis
The Active Wide Medium insoles have helped me with Morton's Neuroma and foot tendonitis a lot. Even before I did physical therapy, which cemented my recovery and as soon as I put these in my sneakers or shoes my foot felt much better. With the therapy and Soles my foot issues are practically gone. I use these insoles for everyday walking, running, and extremely challenging hiking in Drakensberg.
Bought these to use in my bike shoes. While the met pad isn't as pronounced as others, its thinness and support overall makes this a great insole. I've ridden for over an hour with them in the shoes without any pain with them and couldn't say that about the shoes before these insoles.
Very comfortable shoes! Despite what seems like a lack of padding in the foot bed it’s shape and contour maximizes the natural padding of your feet.. I have one fallen arch and one that’s not so bad, but they’re comfortable and both of my feet with no additional insole. The fit is a little snug, but I prefer that, you may go a 1/2 size up if you like your shoes a little loose.
I'm blown away how great these footbeds are and they have exceeded my expectations. Way better then any you will find in the shoe stores. I'm using a pair of Active Thin insoles in my Wolverine 1000 mile boots and my 8 year old boots are now oh so dreamy to walk around in and feel brand new again! I have a fairly narrow foot and medium high arches. I lean towards going barefoot a lot ( I do a lot of yoga) and actually love the arch support which has become more subtle after the break in period. these soles get better the more I wear them so do give a bit to break them in properly.
SOLE has been a big part of keeping my plantars fasciitis from becoming an issue again. Started with SOLE in my running shoes and they hold up for many kms. Liked them so much I now use them in all my main footwear.
Insoles are lifesaving for activities
I’ve used product for over 10 years walking 5-10 miles daily. My insoles have kept me in comfort as I’m doing my daily activities. Have recommended family members to use for extreme hiking. Everyone is very happy with them.
Recovering from metatarsalgia
These insoles are helping my recovery from metatarsalgia. Dr suggested these in August, I took a month off from running and then slowly eased back into the miles. It took about 3.5-4 months to return to my pre injury mileage and the pain is now gone. I also have occasional post tibial flare ups due to flat arches and none of them has occurred since I started using these insoles. Forever a fan and will stick with these insoles.
Short of custom-made insoles, this is the best insole I've ever worn. Comfort-wise they are equal perhaps SOLE insoles are more comfortable. Custom insoles provide more arch support. I wear it in tennis and running shoes. 5 stars for comfort, 5 stars for support. Heating and molding is a great way to shape it to your feet. Since started wearing met-pad insoles the pain I used to experience in balls of my feet after playing tennis is pretty much non-existent. I don't have anything negative to say. Great product all around.
Don't wear anything else
I really love the thin insoles with met pad. They fit perfectly. They make my feet very comfortable in any shoes or boots. They keep my feet warm because the material used don't permit the cold to reach them. And they are thin enough to wear thick wool socks without make my toes too tight.
First Time Buyer
I was recommended this brand by my podiatrist. Bought these (my first insole purchase from any company) for the first time, put them in my hikers, and instantly foot pain receded. Every day there was less and less foot pain. until I have not had any problems now for months. I will be a lifetime user for sure!
Great for my tennis life
I play and teach tennis so I spend a lot of time jarring my joints on a hard surface. I’ve been replacing my tennis shoe manufacturer’s insoles with SOLE inserts for 4 years now. I immediately felt the difference and I’ll never go back. Softec Ultra works great for me.
Stanley E Haley
I have high arches. Years ago one of the “big manufacturers” made shoes with high arches so those were the shoes I bought. Shoe makers don’t make shoes like that now and they haven’t for a long time. All shoes are flat inside. I walked on concrete for many years, my feet would hurt so much. I bought every type of insole I could find. One brand came close to giving me relief. I eventually found “SOLE”. Instantly SOLE insoles helped my feet feel better. My favorite thing about them is I don’t worry about my feet hurting now (about 20 years). I love the fact that I don’t have to take them from one shoe to put them in another shoe. I have these insoles in every shoe I own. Keep making these great insoles. Thank you!
Plantar Fasciitis Sufferers
Do yourself a favor and try these out. I love the SOLE insoles and I am so happy I found them. Not only is it a great product but there customer service is top notch!
I have been using SOLE insoles for about 5 years now. I used to spend hundreds on orthotics. I liked them so much that when I purchased a pair of winter hikers I wanted a pair for them. I purchased the medium thickness as the thicker ones fit a bit tight. They are a perfect fit and give me the familiar support I need for my high arches. I would recommend them to any one with foot problems.
Really helped for pronation & knee misalignment. It’s all connected, so great for my low back pain as well. I have wide foot & high arch, the Thin insoles are ideal for most of my shoes & run true to size. I love that the heel is NOT elevated which can be common in other brands. It’s wonderfully comfy & I really appreciate SOLE getting on board with Eco friendly materials.
I purchased my first SOLE insole about 6 months ago. Upon inspection they looked like a first class insole. Sliding them into my running shoes was an easy task and my first steps were comfortable. I have a Dr. made expensive custom insole that was my go-to but have since changed to the SOLE insoles. Running in these has been an easy and comfortable. Since my my first pair of insoles, I have bought another 6 pairs for all my other go-to pairs of shoes! Great product. Keep it up
I had a foot issue and was awaiting an appointment to get an orthotic made. Since the pain was increasing and I had an upcoming backpack trip, I needed something for the interim period that might alleviate this pain when hiking. I took a chance on some SOLE Active Medium inserts and couldn't be more pleased. When I showed them to my Podiatrist, she was very impressed and told me to continue using them until the orthotics were made. Well, eventually the orthotics arrived, felt extremely uncomfortable, had to be modified several times, and eventually were abandoned. I have since bought 5 pairs of SOLE insoles over the past year and couldn't be happier. They have eliminated my foot pain, are super comfortable, and are very affordable when compared to custom orthotics.
Purchased these insoles (size 11 U.S. fit is exact), because my $200 pair of Asics AWL size 11 US, were causing extreme pain to my Achilles tendon. I needed a winter shoe and although the shoe fit great at the store when I purchased them, they certainly didn't after the first 10km. I was forced to go up a half size with my shoes because my right toe was feeling cramped. Decided to purchase both the Active Medium and Thick, because I wasn't sure which would be enough to fill in the extra room in my shoe and possibly elevate my foot to keep the back of the shoe from touching the upper rear portion of my foot. Ran 100 km in the Active Medium and my feet started to feel great after the first 20km, almost instantly (I didn't heat fit them to my feet). After 100km, I decide to try the Active Thick and they filled the extra space in the shoe that was needed and elevated my foot ever so slightly. First impression was a full shoe and feeling like I was 1 inch taller. At first, when I put in either insole, they felt lumpy. After about 20km, they tend to mold to your feet and feel very natural. You can, of course, heat treat them to fit, but I wasn't sure I was going to keep them, so I decided to try them, out of the package. I do get Achilles pain once in a while, but this is probably due to my running technique and not the insoles. I use my Active Medium Soles in my summer runners (Mizuno Wave Sky Waveknit 3 in size 10.5 U.S.), which fit me perfect before inserting the Soles and fit snug after installing. 450km now and still great. I'm sure my shoes will wear out before these Soles will; they will be going in my next pair of Asics AWLs. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Initially I found them to be expensive, now not so much because they work.
Returning to the ice after COVID, I was suddenly dealing with constant foot pain every time I put my skates on and I tried different things. I’ve been using Medium SOLE inserts in my field hockey turf boots for about 10 years and started wearing a pair in my everyday shoes about two years ago. I decided to try out the Thin, hoping they would fit comfortably in my goalie skates. With the added foot pain in the sole and forefoot, I also tried the met pad for the first time which only took a little getting used to. The Thin soles fit just fine in my skates and have definitely helped the foot pain. I do remove them after every ice time so the skates dry properly and the rivets don’t rust, which is the only issue as it’s a tight fit around the heel and arch, so it can be a little hard to remove them. I worry a bit that the friction will speed up the wear on the skate liner and/or the insole. I’m trying to figure out an easier way to pull it out with a tab or something, but the pros definitely out way that one con.

Love them x5-6!!!
I have flat feet and the insoles gave me the support that I needed. I initially purchased one pair and now I have purchased approximately 5-6 pairs in 2 years. Once I wear a pair out (3-4 months) I slide in a new pair. They fit great with minimal cutting. I also love that my foot does not slide around in my shoe.

My husband and I have used custom or semi-custom insoles in our athletic footwear for years. Ski boots, hiking boots, running and cycling shoes and tennis-specific shoes that are replaced multiple times each year. After 30+ years of using insoles designed to support extended recreational outings, we both have arches that are falling as we age. Luckily we discovered SOLE insoles some years ago and had converted all of our footbeds to their products. The collapsing arches may affect street shoes, but our SOLE inserts have kept our feet comfortably supported with no signs of faster fatigue. Will always wear SOLE aim as many footwear options as we can
I have been diagnosed with Mortons neuroma on my right foot. My chiropractor has the same issue and recommended your insoles with the met pad. It has kept me from having the surgery to sever the nerve on my fourth toe. I wear them 24/7 and it has been miraculous. They are holding up well and are easy to slip in and out.
Owen S Bacon
I have worn these insoles a couple of months now. They fit perfect and instantly made my shoes feel more comfortable.
I even use these in my clog slippers
I had developed uncomfortable nerve tingling in the side of one foot beneath the ankle. My podiatrist said I needed to use insoles with support for high arches virtually all the time. I started using SOLE Softec Response insoles not only in my sneakers and boots when I'm outdoors but also in my clog slippers (which fit snugly at the arch with room in the toe box) when I'm at home. The Softec Response insole cover material is comfortable and durable, and the insoles support my feet/arches well and comfortably. They appear to be very well made and look like they will last a long time. After about a month of wearing these insoles, the nerve discomfort went away. I have now been wearing them for three months, and the relief has held up. The SOLE Softec Response insole sizes match my footwear sizes. They have the roomy toe boxes I need for my broad forefeet yet hold my narrow heels in place. I'm going to keep buying the Softec Response soles and wearing them pretty much all the time. What a relief!
My brother has been a big SOLE fan for a number of years. I was a little more hesitant. However, after having tried one of their insoles I decided to purchase another one of their products and went with the Men's Exhale. The timing of receiving these light weight comfortable shoes couldn't have been better as we've just recently acquired a new puppy that needs 'out' quite frequently. These shoes are so easy to slip on and are a joy to wear. Arch support is great. The bed lining is extremely comfortable. I'm looking to order a second pair but will likely go 1/2 size smaller as I found they fit just a little big on me. Great purchase.
Just about perfect
I have FAR too many SOLE insoles because I love them, so when I saw the new wool-topped winter versions I jumped at them. I’ve been wearing a set in each of 2 pairs of winter boots. Very happy with them. If I could nitpick one improvement, it would be for a thicker wool layer for that extra warmth factor.

Active Medium Insole with Met Pad
Provides great support and fits well. The Met pad helps reduce discomfort in the ball of the feet. Very comfortable - highly recommend.
Kevin John Trick
Looking for an insole with arch support. Surface area is very comfortable and moulds to the shape of my foot. Very light materials so they don't add appreciable weight. Highly recommend and will purchase again.
Absolutely love these! Have one pair in my cycling & another in my running shoes. Vastly improves the comfort & fit. My physiotherapist recommended them so hard to get a better expert opinion.
Ive been wearing these insoles for about a month now in my sneakers and Blundstones and they are great! My feet feel supported and I can walk much farther without pain than when I've used Superfeet in the past. Already ordered another pair (Thick) for my hiking boots!
These insoles are the only brand that I purchase and recommend to my athletes and family. I am an athletic trainer and I believe they hold up better and give better support than others I've tried. For the money they are a very good value. They have a good forefoot support which most others do not unless they are custom made.
Have been using this product for awhile now. First time using this one. Used SOLE products for a long time. It fit well with a little trimming. It is very comfortable. I work at a warehouse on forklifts all night. Works well on the concrete floors. Feet don’t hurt as much as before these insoles.
Great for Golf!
I have been struggling with plantar fasciitis so thought I would give the SOLE Active Medium insoles a shot. Game changer! Great support, comfort and full relief of any pain! The fit is perfect and the quality exceptional. Certainly could feel the difference right away and they just get more comfortable every time I wear them!!
Terri R Houle
My feet feel so much better with these insoles in my hiking boots. I regularly walk 5-6 miles about four times a week, year round, and longer hikes when possible. The arch support and metatarsal pad have really made a difference. I definitely recommend these high-quality insoles. They're worth the money!
Terri R Houle
I have high quality tennis shoes but my feet hurt after my long walks. These insoles have really made a difference. At first I didn't know if I would like the "bump" in the footbed but my feet quickly got used to it and feel much better now with the insole.
These insoles have made my ski boots so much more comfortable. Also in my hikers. Have been using for 1 month and totally impressed. Sizing is accurate and placement easy
Mandy M Yee Sellar
Very comfortable, excellent to replace old insoles with these. It is like you have a new pair of shoes
The best insoles for HSP
The Active Thin insole is the best option that I have found to support my feet. I have Hereditary Spastic Parapeligia and require high arch support to maintain what balance I have left. Since the insoles are very thin yet extremely supportive, they will work in any type of shoe. I have them running shoes and day to day casual shoes. They are also flexible enough that they do not interfere with the flex of the shoe that you are wearing, keeping the design of the shoe as it was intended. I use these insoles everyday and they have been durable, long lasting and comfortable. The insoles did take a few days to break in, I have not done a custom mold on them since they felt pretty close to begin with.
Excellent arch support
These insoles are great, they provide firm arch support and minimal thickness/cushioning so they will fit in most shoes quite well. The material is thin but seems to last for a long time without losing shape.
Karen L Hensley
These insoles are very comfortable and really help with my Plantar Fasciitis. Also very good stability for my knees too. I've been using these insoles for many years, and they really hold up to the use.
I've been using SOLE insoles for over a decade. Love them and highly recommend. I use them for plantar fasciitis, and back pain
Gerald A Pond
No More Plantar Fasciitis Pain
I have had plantar fasciitis over 30 years. Treatment has involved many pairs of custom orthotics, numerous steroid injections, and years of debilitating pain. I started wearing SOLE insoles a couple years ago. They are now in every pair of shoes I own. I wear them ALL the time and I'm pain free. To paraphrase James Brown, "I'm a SOLE man!" My wife recently visited a podiatrist for, guess what? Plantar fasciitis! He examined her footwear. She wears Hoka One One shoes which he said were great. She had a new pair of SOLE insoles I had insisted she try. He told her custom orthotics would be no better than the SOLE insoles. After one injection and daily exercises, she is now back on her feet.
Suffering from plantar fasciitis, dealing with huge pain in my heel, until I discovered SOLE footbeds. Got a new pair of boots, the insoles lifted my arch, felt so much better and continues to do so. Incredible incentives on the website and I have recommended them to four of my friends who have purchased them. I have also gotten a second pair for myself. Everyone raves about them. My feet feel better everyday, thank you so much
SOLE with warmth..
I wear the Scandinavian wool boot called Lobbens which are extremely warm & lightweight but don't have much support (the wool liners they come with are just sheepskin & quite thin) the wool covered SOLE insole liners give great support in a quite soft boot. I live in the Canadian north ( Yukon) & warm feet are very important. Just a suggestion that a bit more wool on top layer would be great, sheepskin would be an absolute dream!! I've been wearing them for about 3 months outdoors in up to -minus 30 so warmth is important! Thanks! (have to have SOLE in ALL my footwear)
I bought these insoles to help with my knees and lower back as I do a lot of standing and walking at work. This is my second pair and I love them! Super comfortable.
Better than orthotics
SOLE shoes and insoles accomplished what my "official orthotics" could not do - cure plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia. Now, I've a got a great insole for my winter activities!
As someone who occasionally suffered from foot pain, I needed a more sustainable solution than prescription orthotics that need routine replacement at a very high price. While perhaps not as precise in foot correction as a customized orthotic, the SOLE Active Medium was a perfect solution for me. A very reasonable price for an excellent product by an outstanding, thoughtful company. I can highly recommend these insoles for anyone needing greater support or an alternative to overpriced orthotics. They resolved my foot pain issues and I'm a happy customer for life.
Sylvia K Estey
I was originally diagnosed with a fallen arch three weeks before a planned 5 day hike on the Camino in northern Spain. I was new to SOLE insoles but I completed the 120km hike with no knee pain at all. Recently I developed a metatarsal issue and my pedorthist added a little egg shaped bump to reduce the impact in the affected area. Then I ordered these new Met Pad insoles and they are a joy to walk and hike in. Cannot live without them!! Great company and customer service too!! Thanks SOLE!
Would buy again
Love the support the Active Medium with Met Pad provides. I was having supination stability problems causing Achilles Tendinitis that I fought for over a year with a sleep boot, braces, less activity and more rest. Nothing helped. These took a few weeks to allow my alignment to correct and the tenderness to go away, but it is GONE! If I wear shoes for a few days without the insoles I notice a difference. I am hooked!
I was concerned that the Performance Thin insole would not provide me with the comfort that the thicker SOLE products had provided me over the past few months. The dilemma is that I have to wear dress shoes for work and frankly, some of the thicker SOLE insoles were just too thick and made my shoes feel tight. I bought a pair of the Performance Thins and they have been wonderful. Fits in my shoes and even in some of my shoes that don't have removable insoles and have worked great. I am ordering more.
Benjamin R Pauli
Fixed my feet
I was a little skeptical for the price, but I was pleasantly surprised. My arches were collapsed from years of flat insoles, so my feet were pretty sore the first couple times I used these. But after a week or so, the pain went away and my feet straightened out. I now can walk and stand for hours without foot pain.
The Thermal Thick Wool insoles are wonderful! I put them in the running shoes I use for walking and have worn them on several 20° days here in Michigan. My feet have stayed warm, even with the mesh toe box the shoes have for ventilation. And they have the same great support as my other SOLE inserts. Hopefully a wide version will be offered in the future for shoes with a wider toe box. I’d recommend the wool inserts to anyone.
Absolutely worth it
I had an old pair of SOLE from high school (10+ years ago) that I forgot about. More recently, I'd been experiencing sinus tarsi pain from running/overuse that persisted despite PT, cortisone, and other non-surgical treatments. I decided to dig up the old insoles, and after wearing them for about two weeks, couldn't believe the difference. I decided to buy a second pair so that I could rotate them between runnings shoes and regular street-shoes. Overall, wearing them consistently has probably cut my pain down to 10% of what it was originally. They are true to size and fit into my shoes no problem. I wish I had started wearing them sooner (or never stopped wearing the pair I got in high school)!

Great for golf
Great insole for my golf shoes. I walk the course and these help support my high arches for a pain free round. Great product and value.
MARK E LARSON
Got rid of Metatarsal Pain
Have off and on metatarsal pain and had gotten away from wearing insoles for a bit. Then I started in on a hiking challenge and soon my metatarsal pain returned. Ordered a new set of these and instantly it felt better and after a couple days I was basically pain free. These fit shoes perfectly, have great arch support and you can trim them if needed. Highly recommend!
This insole has been a big part of me getting back to normal after some bad heel pain. Sometimes what seems like plantar fasciitis is nerve irritation. That was the case for me and the inserts I had been using since 2009 were irritating the nerve, I started working these inserts into my rotation in mid October. It wasn't long before I relied mostly on these. I have high arches and the Dr. tells me that can give me heel and forefoot pain. These inserts cover all the bases. Now I am on my feet again most of the day and enjoying walks around my village. Next season, I will be hiking again!
I have been using inserts for decades. I have low arches. I have tried MANY different products including $500 custom orthotics. I am also a runner. 20-25 miles per week. Expensive customs wear out. Not unlike any other. It can become a money drain. Off the shelf insoles from various suppliers are very generic. Too spongy, not light weight, not enough arch support and wear out quickly. A friend passed along to me a recommendation from his podiatrist. "SOLE" insoles. I looked over a lot of info from the SOLE website as well as from other sources and decided to try the SOLE Active Medium. SOLE provides a wide variety of insoles, as well as other products, to suit MANY different needs and foot and body designs. This alone separates SOLE from other offerings. It is also very obvious that they have done their due diligence on R&D and have included some very smart and experienced people into the works to develop products for a wide dynamic of people and purposes. I have low arches and a knee that has had cartilage repair and a torn stretched to useless ACL. (Skiing injuries from my youth). The soles obviously won't repair these things but provide support and alignment that allow me to run comfortably and vigorously without pain. I bought my first pair, used them for about 2 months and then bought another pair. All total I have been on them for about 5 months now. I also played Hockey for decades. Skate providers went away from traditional leather outer shells quite a few years ago and adopted moldable outer shells. You warm up the skate in an oven, quickly put them on, lace them up tight and the skate adopts the shape of your foot. Providing a very custom fit. It took a minute but once I got used to them I fell in love with the technology. The EVA base in the Active Mediums is very much similar. I did not put them in the oven I just put them in my shoe and wore them to shape. It took running on them about 10 times until they formed to fit. This wear in period was a bit uncomfortable in the beginning but since then they have been awesome... Now they fit great and are beyond comfortable. They are super supportive, lightweight, and I can trust them to be perfectly in place with every stride. I love the product, I love the price point. Customer service has been excellent. I am absolutely a SOLE customer for life. You might think that I am just a shill for SOLE who is being somehow compensated. I assure you that I am NOT. I'm a very satisfied customer who is simply illustrating my experience with their product. This is a product that I truly need and very much appreciate. I am 61 years old. A life long athlete. This product allows me to continue to enjoy training and competitive athletics... Priceless.... Thank you SOLE

I have very high arches, narrow feet and plantar fasciitis. I gave been told I am high risk for collapsed arches, told that's very painful, and have been going to physiotherapy for foot and related knee pain. Custom orthotics were quoted at $300 with Insurance only covering maximum 50%. I thought I'd give these a try first! I did not heat fit them as I was worried about getting it right, instead choosing to fit them by wearing. First few days were an eye opener, my toes clenched and I was uncomfortable wearing them for long periods if time. 2-3 hours at once was enough. I am on my feet, running after kids all day at work so I needed more support than drugstore insoles. After wearing them for a week my feet felt so much better at the end of the day! I really needed the extra arch support and my feet have relaxed, no more toe clenching! I will be getting another set for my ski boots and anticipate a much more comfortable downhill ski season this year. 100% would recommend trying these before getting expensive orthotics if you have high arches.
Favorite insole on the market!
11/10 company, takes care of you and the environment at the same time. Been using these guys for years, I own a pair of SOLE for every shoe I wear! I cant walk the same with out them. I have narrow feet and pretty high arches, these are the best form fitting insoles i have ever used..and I've used more than half a dozen before I came to these, and haven't looked back since! Just now buying the "active" type, I always just went the cork "performance" option to save the world! ha. so time will tell how these do.. PS I own Kenetreks hardscrabble hikers size 10.5 (used SOLE 11's). and they fit like a glove, no need to reshape. Like whipping with velvet, amazing product! thx guys!!!
I can feel my toes again!
I got injured wearing new hiking boots during a 35+km backcountry camping hike in the Spring 2020. Could no longer feel one of my toes! I changed footwear, and the situation improved - but for the next 18 months, the issue and feet aches kept coming back! I found myself trying different shoes, insoles, socks… even posture! Alas! It kept curbing my adventures and fitness goals :( Then finally, I discovered SOLE with Met Pad… and a REAL, lasting relief at last!!! 😃 Started with one pair… I now own 4x sets and am considering fitting all my favorite shoes with them - from boots to sneakers and even those toe-numbing cycling shoes !!!. I Love that the cork insoles are carbon negative (amazing!) and that I can pick different thicknesses! Plus, the customer service is great - with prompt shipping and a meaningful rewards program! I am SOLE’d for Life!
I have genetic flat feet. I'm 44, and have lived the "strenuous life." Very active - hiker, power lifter, stone mason, former Marine. Over the last 4 years I've developed pttd, and over the last 5 months it's gotten very painful. As someone who can usually physically do whatever I want, having to avoid simple things like stairs has been very difficult physically and mentally. I have tried lace up ankle wrap braces, custom rigid orthotics that cost 1000.00 dollars, special shoes, and been religious about foot strengthening- they all sort of work, but there's always some pain. I have routinely been told "otc" orthotics aren't effective. Regardless on a whim I bought a pair of SOLE insoles, and after I put them in my gym shoes -INSTANTLY - the pain went away almost completely. I bought a second pair for my Danner hiking/work boots, with the same result. I can't wrap my brain around how there can be such an immediate dramatic change, but running up and down my stairs without a second thought or wincing in pain is absolutely amazing. I haven't worn them long, but they seem durable. I hope they hold up, though for this level of regained mobility, I'd buy a new pair every month if I had to. My hope is, as they are clearly relieving the strain on my tibial tendon and over pronation, over time with continued wear and foot strengthening I can reverse some of the damage done.

I think it's working!
I believe these insoles are helping with my metatarsal pain. I have a nerve that is bothering me and impeding my ability to walk. With these soles, I can still enjoy walking because of the excellent support they give my feet. I have been using them for at least a month now and need to put them in every pair of shoes I own.
My podiatrist recommended this for metatarsalgia. It's relieving the pain and discomfort. I also rested for a month and cut back on the running mileage. The situation is definitely improving, and I know this process will take awhile. The arch support also seems better than my previous insoles. Will be buying more of these.
Bought these for my winter hiking boots. Product is comfortable and seems to be wearing well. Wasn’t sure if they might be too thick, but this was not a problem. Good product at a good price.
Charles A Grubb
Long distance backpacking godsend
Been wearing SOLE Active Thick insoles for hiking and backpacking for years now. They work great with Moab 2 boots. I've been section hiking the Appalachian trail on my time off for several years. I usually knock out 70 to 100 miles in seven days. My insoles are one of the important pieces of gear that help make it happen.
I’ve worn these for a little over a month now. I suffer from flat feet and really can’t walk or stand for long periods without orthotics. These ones have been great for comfort and they’re priced better than the brand I used to wear. Hoping to try out some of the thin ones next
I have used SOLE insoles for years. The met pad is a awesome, a well needed touch to relive pain in the ball of your feet
I ordered these at the recommendation of my chiropractor about 2 months ago to see how I might benefit from insoles. These are wonderful! If anything, I wish I had formed them with my small arch supports under them so there was more height there, but in general they are super comfortable (after a week or two adjustment period) and fit snug in all my shoes and boots without any issues. My biggest issue is that I don't have more to just have in all my shoes. May be ordering more soon!
Steve R Greenwood
Really improves my day in work boots
I was referred to try non-Rx insoles for plantar fasciitis. Started with the less aggressive ‘Work’ soles. After a while felt I could go with the higher arch of the ‘Active’. Heat-molded them this time. Even less heal pain with these. Can go all day with my feet in work boots. Ordering another pair.
Finally found insoles that work for me.
Very happy with my insoles. Provide firm cushion and the deep heel cup provides good stability. The arch is perfect for me. They have neutral heel to toe drop. They are well made and I think they will hold up well. I have a stack of insoles that i tried but did not work for me. I will be purchasing more for my other shoes.
A co worker told me to try the SOLE insoles in my work boots, so I did. I work construction everyday. I've been using them for one whole summer of work, they fit great, very comfortable, they last longer and are very durable, more durable than other brands I've tried. Honestly I can't think of anything I don't like about them other than maybe the price, but you also get what you pay for. I plan to replace the insoles in every pair of boots I have with these insoles, including my hunting boots. Absolutely the best insole I've ever tried. I would recommend them.
Michael A Lynd
The best insoles available
These are the best insoles available anywhere. I started out using the SOLE DK Signature insoles and switched to these when they were discontinued. All of my SOLE insoles have been great, but these are my favorites. I have them in all of my shoes, boots and running shoes. Since I switched to SOLE from Superfeet I’ve had no more issues with plantar fasciitis, and no foot pain or fatigue. They aren’t cheap but they are worth every penny. Try them. You’ll be glad you did.
Saved my feet!
I bought these insoles on a coworker's recommendation. I've had them in my work boots for about a month now, I want sure about the met pad at first but it's very comfortable. My feet feel way less sore after a 12 hour shift walking on cement and grating. The arch support is great and I like how you can mold them in the oven. Shipping was very fast!
Great insole for cycling
I bought this product on the recommendation of my physiotherapist, to help with the “hot foot” syndrome I was experiencing during long bike rides. For this purpose the insole has been very effective, as I no longer experience the problem. The fit in a road cycling shoe is tight and requires some trimming of the insole. So far I’ve been very happy with this product. I’ve been using it for a month now on my bike trainer and outdoor rides. I liked it so much I bought matching insoles for my running shoes as well.
Elizabeth K Finden
Great for golf
I now have three pairs of these thin insoles. I use them in my golf shoes, hiking shoes, and walking shoes. My first pair was a size 8 (my normal shoe size) but then a salesperson at REI suggested I place my foot on larger sizes to get a better fit on the arch placement. Size ten actually fit my higher arch perfectly. So now I buy size ten and trim the toe end to fit into my shoes. This also fits my wider toe box shoes well. I used to buy the “Super” brand, but only buy this brand now. I naturally pronate and have a neuroma and my feet feel great. The material lasts a long time and the thin version fits in most of my shoes.
I had foot surgery 3 years ago and have been wearing SOLE insoles ever since. This is not your regular flip flop. The sandals have excellent support and look good too. I can wear them all day and have no pain on my feet.
I got these for use in my cross trainers because my Active Thick ones we're too thick for them. SOLE in general are unmatched in quality and durability. I wore them near 10 years as a Marine Infantryman in Iraq and a lot of other hot, cold, wet places. I've never once gotten a blister wearing these insoles. Something I can't say about most other brands.
Catherine S Berry
Sole with met pad
I am very happy with my insoles. They are ever bit as good as the pricey prescription ones I have
Worth the purchase
I have collapsed arches from pregnancy and these insoles help a lot to support my arches and relieve pain and discomfort while I get back into shape. Glad I brought these and going to purchase more.
