So happy!!!

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


SOLE Flips

I love the SOLE flips as they provide a good arch and support. As I don't have a lot of arch, I cannot find flips that will provide the support I need in "everyday stores". Most flips are flat. With the SOLE flippers, I can walk and wear them all day without knee and back pain. The only thing I regret is that when I ordered another pair, I made an error an ordered the wrong size (ordered 7 instead of size 6). I love SOLE flippers and can't wait to try shoes. Thank you! Francine


Great Flip Flop

After a few months of wearing them, my two favorite things about this flip flop are the arch support and the flexibility that the footbed has. The foam helps the footbed to be less hard on my knees than the cork bed was with my last pair of flip flops. I also like that they are so lightweight and you can also get them wet and and they don't make squeaky noises. Although they don't give me as much support as a shoe (I have basically no arch to my foot), this is the best flip flop I've found in all my searching. Definitely five star for me.


He’s happy!

I purchased 2 pairs of these sandals for both my father and my fiance and they both love them. They fit comfortably and provide a great deal of support for my dad who has had knee replacements. My fiance likes the sporty appearance and style of the sandal as well and uses them for ongoing walking trips. I have made several purchases from SOLE now and every time I am a happy customer. :)


Recovery & rehab

My physio turned me on to the Sole footbeds for post surgical recovery so when I noticed SOLE had flips near my size I had to try them out. So great to be able to walk without hot shoes and socks all summer and still get excellent support to hold my ankle and knee in the correct position for a better recovery and rehab! The flips are comfortable and sturdy. Though I'm grateful for a size 14 offering, the sizing might be slightly on the small side. It would be fantastic if SOLE could increase their offerings by a size or two...


Comfort and style

Very happy to find these flips from the source in Canada as I've been wearing the brand for years and had difficulty finding them locally when needing to replace them. I live in these flips indoors and out all summer and in winter they serve as my indoor footwear. Before finding SOLE flips at my orthotics provider about 7 years ago I thought I would have to wear only closed shoes and orthotics to relieve my chronic sore feet and knees . However I found that SOLE Monterey flips support my arch and look good, and I have no pain at all. I really like the cork option which I currently have but also have enjoyed the all man made version of the same flip. They are hard-wearing and last for years. I always take a pair with me when I travel for hotels room foot wear, Highly recommended.


Making A Difference

I wasn't sure about getting orthotics without trying them out first. So glad that I did as they have provided much knee pain relief. I purchased mine at a store, loved them so much that we ordered a pair for my husband who has pain in his feet. We both plan to order a second pair so we don't have to switch them out as often when changing our shoes.


Nice inserts!

They were recommended to me by a friend, after I complained of knee pain when running. Overall, they greatly improve my ability to run for longer than 20 minutes without pain. I recommend this product. I went with active medium - don't see a reason to chose another kind. It fits comfortably to the foot. Again, the reason I use these is to alleviate pain from the knees, when running.


love them

I bought the Laguna flip flop because i had foot issues. Walking 5 minutes in any other kind of flip flop style would instantly cause foot and knee pain. With the Laguna Flip I now can slip them on and go for a walk no worries. They look great too!


Amazing

I've had my footbeds for the month and I'm telling you they are amazing .. all knee issues have gone away mostly.. back pain has gone down .. when running I can tell that my legs aren't fatigued as much as they use to be. Definitely will be ordering more. Customer service was great .. very helpful in picking out the right footbeds for me ..


They convinced me

I bought this insole for my teenage daughter. I had noticed while walking behind her that her ankles caved inward each step to the point that it was disturbing for me to watch. I asked her if it hurt, and she said her knees and back hurt when she jogged. After some research I bought these for her. She told me that she can definitely feel the difference with these insoles, and that her knees and back no longer hurt. That convinced me enough to buy a set for myself.


SOLE Active Wide Medium for knee pain

First of all i would like to say SOLE products are the best in class. I had a knee pain as my work requires standing for a long period of time. That's why i bought SOLE footbeds and after wearing for over 2 months I can say that it works for me. Never felt that pain in my knee again plus these are comfortable. So i am happy with my purchase.


Knee problems solved

I owe a lot of respect to SOLE company. For some unknown reason I started having ankle pain on my right foot a few months ago. I was referred to a foot doctor, the same that had seen me during my childhood during 12 years and that fixed my problem having feet looking inwards. This time, the foot doctor made me those super technological orthodics that cost $400+. After 5 adjustments trying to improve them, because I was starting to feel a very painful pinching sensation in my inner knees (somewhere I NEVER had any problem before in my entire life), I came across SOLE footbed in a outdoors sale. I bought it thinking I had nothing to lose. I was pretty desperate at this point, nothing was doing it. My knees were in pain if I wore the foot orthodics or not, and the best solution was just not to walk at all : not an option at 32 years old! So I started using the SOLE footbeds, and all of a sudden, my knee pain disappeared! It was, and it still is, honestly so marvellous. I never told the Podiatrist I stopped using my custom orthodic, but now I got SOLE footbeds and my doctor was pretty happy I found my solution, so he wrote down the company name and went on recommending his patients the footbed. SOLE, you saved my knees! Thanks a lot!


BEST FLIPS EVER!!!!!!

I love my Costa flips! They're the most comfortable sandals I've ever worn. The support is amazing. As someone who is constantly on my feet running around these have helped my knees and back get back to normal where I don't need to see the Chiro as much. I had a figure skating injury when I was 15 to my lower back so I'm always in pain. The fit is great, the way it hugs my foot Is just right and love the mulberry color as it's my fave. I bought one pair and had to go back for 3 more!


Great product

Well a few weeks in, and I can't be happier with the purchase of these flip flops. I had some minor knee issues, and since I have been wearing these I have not felt that pain in my knee when I walk. So far I could not be happier with the SOLE brand, and plan to soon try some insoles. The fit is good, I am usually a size 8.5 went down to an 8 for these, the fit is perfect for the foot.


Good option for off size shoes

SOLE! has helped fix my back and knee problems . I do like how they can extend my day by taking away my pains. I work on my feet and it doesn't stop when I get home. I like the thin option for boots and fancy shoes I use as well. It can make that half size difference in shoes.


Awesome

We have hardwood floor through out our house. Standing all day can really make your feet and knees sore. I purchased these performance thins to go in the light runners I wear in the house. They are a game changer! I would highly recommend these insoles.


Top Notch

This SOLE product is my favourite, I spend a lot of time in boots and the thicker insert really helps support my arches and gives me additional mobility. These also will fit into tennis shoes, as long as they are not too tight fitting. The price is reasonable and I don't have to replace them too often. Would I buy them again? YES! I actually bought a pair for my father who has knee pain and these have helped greatly in stabilizing his foot and thus reducing knee pain. SOLE has a great products. Rich Hamm


Outstanding product

I have had several of the different SOLE products over about 4 years now, and I find the Active Thick to be an outstanding product. I have severe pronation and these inserts really help stabilize my food and decrease my knee pain, and they wear like iron. I don't have to replace them at a rapid pace, I really do love their product. Rich Hamm


I am impressed by these insoles.

I have purchased a pair of sandals from SOLE three years ago, used them every summer since and fell in love with them. I saw an ad through one of my social media feeds that SOLE had these medium work insoles on sale. I jumped at the chance to try these at a discount. I use these insoles in my tactical work boots. My job as a Sheriff has me walking, standing, all day, almost every day. Being a larger guy I have always had problems with my knees and my plantar fasciitis. These insoles compared to my prescribed ones, I truly prefer these ones. They run the full length of the boot so there's no rubbing in the middle of the foot like I get with the prescribed ones. It has been almost four months, and no complaints whatsoever. These so far have been the best non prescription insoles I have ever purchased. Highly recommend that you at least try these.


manager

After my knees and lower back hurt for weeks.I had tried to just buy new shoes and the uncomfortable pain was a little better but not gone. I finely bought a pair of SOLE inserts and my pain subsided and was gone. I will always buy the SOLE inserts from now on.


Fantastic Soles

I am a bit old and overweight with flat feet and worn out knees, but I love to hike! Where I live there are many trails in the mountains and rough Andalusian country side. There's a lot of up-and-down, steep paths. I recently switched over to Altea Lone Pine 4.0 trail shoes and paired them with SOLE Wide Thick foot beds. My first hike was a tough route of 17 miles with 3,700 accumulated elevation ascent and descent. I packed along my well-used Brooks Cascadia with traditional fit SOLE Thick footbeds just in case. But no problems and many hikes later I'm so pleased I have already bought a second pair of the SOLE/Altra combination! My feet and my knees are responding well, both for long hikes and on steep descents. I fully recommend SOLE footbeds!


Perfect fit

I have been a SOLE wearer for about 5 years now. I just bought a 2nd pair and took them on vacation without even trying them on first! Wore them 10 days straight..no issues, and very very comfortable. I do have knee and heel issues but not when wearing my SOLE flip flops. Thank you SOLE!


Lightfoot

I confess I was a bit dubious when I tried these. The construction seemed a bit on the lean side. But I wanted to support the concept and the usage. So, I went for it. Turns out they are among the more stylish comfortable shoes in my quiver. I anticipated something along the lines of the famous Australian build. But they were not; they were better. I feel like I should be nicknamed "Lightfoot"when I wear them. I feel more nimble. Lighter on my feet. But solidly on the ground. They are almost not there. Except they really are, and my feet require support like many others' do not. Past injuries, orthotic adventures, knee pain, all conspire to require the right fit and float. These do all of that and more. Thanks for making me look... glad I did!


Pleasantly surprised

I have had a lot of shoe inserts promise to relieve foot, ankle, knee, and hip pain. None ever delivered. It was a pleasant surprise to realize that after a few weeks of using the SOLE inserts, I was walking further and enjoying it more. I'd love to be able to get SOLE inserts for every pair of shoes that I own!


Fantastic Inserts

The SOLE Active Thick Inserts are a fantastic product. I have a history of chondromalacia of the knees. That is a condition where the patella, also known as the kneecap, does not articulate properly with the tibial bone beneath it. The condition results in painful knees, With motion, exercise, sitting etc. These inserts made it possible for me to move again. I am also a physician that regularly sees patients with plantar fasciitis. I recommend these inserts frequently. I would say 90% success rate to those who utilize them. Excellent company and excellent products! Give the footbeds as well as the shoe wear a try. You won't be disappointed.


Outstanding inserts for your boots.

I work in home renovations and on my feet all day. By the end of the day my feet and knees would be aching. Using the SOLE inserts in my boots make them incredibly comfortable. They last a long time, fit great making my boots feel like a running shoe on my foot. I've tried other insoles but these are by far the best ones in my opinion. I've been wearing these now for about a year and half and will not go back to any other brand. I do not have sore feet or knees any longer. Highly recommend SOLE!


Repeat customer

I can wear my Montereys all day long, same as any shoes that have my SOLE footbeds in them. They save me from a lot of knee and back pain. And the flips I wear them everyday from May to October and they last two summers. Couldn't be happier.


Perfect fit

I have been a SOLE wearer for about 5 years now. I just bought a 2nd pair and took them on vacation without even trying them on first! Wore them 10 days straight..no issues, and very very comfortable. I do have knee and heel issues but not when wearing my SOLE flip flops. Thank you SOLE!


Every shoe every day

SOLE insoles have changed my life. I have put them in at least 4 pairs of shoes so I rarely have to move them to another pair. They support my arches very well and have made a big difference in my ankle and knee strength. I never go without them. Thanks for a great product.


The BEST!

I have bought numerous pairs of SOLE sandals. They are absolutely the best on the market! Before total, bilateral knee replacement, I had four pair that I wore religiously. Nothing helped my knees as much as they did. Now, why change? Incredible support! For anyone with leg, knee, or foot problems, buy a couple of pair. Only wish I would get a commission for the number of people I have recommended that have bought these!


Great product

Once again my footbeds from SOLE are killing it. Great support, easy to mold and no more knee pain! Thanks SOLE!


Best insoles ever

Have been using these for a long time. Eliminates my hip & knee joint pain. Use them in every pair of shoes


Healthy Solution

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


Helps with pronation

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


Best insoles, best sandals!

I own three pairs of insoles and four pairs of sandals. The insoles with the met pads are so supportive in my golf shoes,running shoes and workboots. I had a total knee replacement and they been the very best footwear I could ever ask for. I have ordered all these products online through the SOLE website and the service has been fast efficient and well packaged. I couldn't be happier!


Saved my (summer) life!

SOLE cork bottom sandals have made it possible for me to were "flip flops" again! With the cork bottom and extra cushioning, I can now wear summer sandals without any leg or knee problems. I highly recommend them!


Insoles

I wear these insoles and bought some for my daughter as she probates in her shoes. They have changed her life! I put them in her runners as well as her cleats for soccer and her knee pain etc has completely stopped. Love these!!


Amazing

These are beyond amazing! Sole flips allow me to walk again without pain in my hips, knees, or feet! They have changed my life! I now have two pairs for inside and three pairs for outside. I will continue to purchase SOLE products. I cannot wait for the boots!


Fitting Wide Toe Boxes

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

Great recovery sandal

Purchased these as a recovery sandal for marathon training and post race. With no arch to help support my feet and knees these have been wonderful. Will be purchasing another pair soon.


Extreme Comfort

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

Shellie Harvey


Love the Catalina Flip

These are the only thing I wear - luckily I live in warm weather. I've had both knees replaced and the Catalina flip gives me support not found in other sandals or most shoes.


love Sole products

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


Amazing "Soles"!

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


Sole Footbeds are a Godsend.

My recent purchase is simply a continuation of what I now expect from SOLE; the best. I've been using SOLE footbeds for four years. I have osteoarthritis In both knees. SOLE provided a product that both formed an arch in my flat feet as well as improving the alignment of the structure of my legs. This allowed me to delay a TKR in my left leg for two years and almost stopped the deterioration in my right knee. Thank you!


Best insole i ever tried

I have been a runner all my life. i am now 60 years old. Due to long distance running and a job which requires standing all day my feet have become flat. Almost no arch at all. These insoles have changed my life. After trying various insoles that cost more than three times the price of these I finally have found the best insole on the market. Even better than the ones I had custom made from my doctor. I was told at the shoe store that my podiatrist recommended that she had never seen such feet as flat as mine. She couldn't believe I did not have an arch. It is a result from running on pavement and standing on hard cement floors. These insoles support my feet like i have an arch again. it has also helped my back and knees although I never thought i had a problem with either. Thank you for making such a superior product and please continue to do so. i don't know what I would do without your product.


I LOVE SOLE!

I have successfully used SOLE footbeds for many years. Initially for hiking and backpacking, they saved my knees from the constant impact of long descents while carrying heavy packs. After contracting plantar fasciitis from running in shoes with poor insoles, I started wearing SOLE footbeds in all of my shoes including my everyday business dress shoes, running, tennis and softball shoes. I firmly believe that SOLE footbeds not only allowed me to "play thru" and continue to enjoy the activities I love, but also helped significantly with the recovery from plantars.


Since 2007

As a female I have large feet so nice shoes that fit are hard to find, but I have always loved flip flops. That was until I developed planters fasciitis. One of my team mates recommended Sole, I was a bit taken back by the price at first, but WOW, they were worth every penny! I have had so many pairs now that I have lost count. The first few pairs wore out after a couple of years of hard wearing, which just gave me an opportunity to buy more. I own the winter boots, shoes, sport flips, cork flips (my favorite), slides, and the new navigator. Other then when I have to dress up, Sole it is all I wear. I have been a very satisfied customer since 2007. PS the planters fasciitis was gone within a month. I wear them for 12 hour days at trade shows and never have sore feet, knees, back or hips. They are magic!!!!


On my 3 pair of DK Response Soles... Happy Feet!

I have raced in over 14 triathlons including a Half Ironman. These Signature DK Response footbeds solved my moderate pronation and arch pain during running (my knees no longer rub together). Amazing product and they truly deliver strong results mile after mile. I own 3 pairs since 2008, they will last several seasons. I still use my first pair in my dancing shoes, very durable. I give this product 5 stars out of Five. Make the best fitness decision and buy these now! Your feet will thank you!


Just the best

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


The best

I don't usually do reviews but think this is worthwhile. About 6 years ago I suffered Plantar Fasciitis in both feet. This was cured by custom orthotics at a cost of 300. However I have battled this condition and mild knee pain throughout which never went away fully. As the custom orthotics wore out I tried SOLE Softec Ultras. I have worn them without doing the heating process and can say coupled with daily stretching my knees and feet are great. I am running 3/4 times a week and wear military boots for a living. I can only say I wish I had tried them earlier. They take about a week to wear in but after that fantastic. Excellent product and customer support.

Ian Thornton


Thank you!

Thank you. Your soles have corrected my plantar fasciitis, therefore my knees and my back. I am a 46 year-old full-time father of a two and one year old. I've just run a half marathon and can pick up my two young children and dance them to sleep. My children are happy because I am mobile and they have my full attention. I run six days a week with no pain. I have lost thirty pounds, and because I can run, I can write. I'm an English novelist living in Toronto and running/walking is how and where I get my ideas. Your soles might have saved my life. Thank you.


None Other

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


best possible option

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


The BEST!!!

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


Another Derby Girl Review!

I bought two pair after I'd worn holes through the soles of my skates. These are awesome! It didn't take long to break them in (I didn't do the heat mold, just wore them). They are true to size, I didn't even have to cut them to my boot. My feet feel better, and I my feet are no longer sliding around in my skate boot. I've noticed that my knee pain is significantly improved as well, which I contribute to the better support. Thanks Sole, and thank you for being a supporter of Sacred City Derby Girls!


After a couple weeks my pain was gone

Just writing to thank you for your excellent product. I'm a very active person -- I participate in a multitude of sports, including frequent hiking. I experienced mild yet persistent knee pain for many months. I stumbled across your Signature EV Ultras at REI several months ago; within a couple of weeks after inserting them into my hiking boots, my pain was gone.


The Best

This is the best sole I ever used while I'm in the Army. It worked perfectly and comfortly inside your running shoes and combat boots. I utilized in all my deployments and save a lots of yrs on my knees and backs and trust me with all the loads you carried, it will bring relieve to the pain on your soul..lols and I recommended to all the Soldiers and Warriors downrange..


So comfortable

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

I will never use any insert again except sole inserts

I'm currently a proud member of the armed forces and in the army I spend a lot of my time on my feet. Sole inserts give added comfort to combat boots and make taking care of my feet so much easier. My feet and knees and back are much more supported now with sole inserts, I will never use any insert again except sole inserts. I have recommended sole to my friends and and other soldiers as well, my wife even bought a couple of pair and instantly loved them. Thanks for a wonderful product and keep up the great work.

Prior to using the SOLE Orthotics I was experiencing leg and knee pain after running long distances

Prior to using the SOLE Orthotics I was experiencing leg and knee pain after running long distances. After using them I do not experience pain anymore. A month after using SOLE Orthotics I ran in a half marathon, set a new personal record and wasn't even sore the next day. Before if I were to run a half marathon I would be sore for up to a week afterwards. This year (2011) I am going to take my running career to a whole other level by running in Ultra Marathons. But with running these longer distances come with the potential for running related injuries. Therefore, to try to prevent most running related injuries I plan on purchasing a few more pairs of SOLE Orthotics. I would like to have a pair in every pair of my shoes (work and running). I don't know if SOLE has any kind of athlete endorsment programs but I would love to represent SOLE and spread the word about how great of a product they are.


Best relief available

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

I'm in LOOOOOOOOOVE

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


5 years + and still working.

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


Foot And Knee Problems??

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


"acclimated to the sole"

A year ago I had severe knee pains along with discomfort in my lower back. The job I worked for at the time required me to be on my feet a lot. So eventually I visited an Orthopedic Specialist for physical therapy and the Specialist recommended these insoles for both work and leisure. Since then the pain has gotten a lot less severe, I’m also not standing as much at work anymore. The arch and heel of my feet have acclimated to the sole. So overall I’m impressed, I think anyone who might be experiencing any sort of back, knee or feet pain should give them a try.

These are the best sandals I've ever worn

These are the best sandals I've ever worn! I've suffered from plantar fasciitis, heel pain, knee pain and shin pain for the last 10 years and I haven't been able to wear flip flops or even most sandals without a lot of pain after about 15 minutes of wearing them. I'm a runner and I'm forced to wear orthotics in shoes for pronation and the plantar fasciitis to eliminate some of the pain and problems so I had pretty much given up on wearing sandals. I won a pair of the sport flips in promotion through work for selling some of the insoles. When I got them I was skeptical because sandals and flip flops have always hurt my feet and they just end up collecting dust in the closet. Well, I stood for 4 hours on the sport flips at work, and pretty much haven't taken them off in the 3 days that I've had them. They are great! They provide lots of arch support and my feet haven't hurt at all. In fact the plantar fasciitis has bothered me the least in the last few days than it has in months. These are by far the best shoes I've ever worn. I've ordered a pair for my partner off your website and have recommended them to all of my friends and fellow runners. I can't believe what a difference they've made. Keep up the good work! You make a superior product.


VERY GOOD but . . .

I bought these because I felt I needed more support in my shoes for playing badminton. Since badminton is very intense on the knees and ankles, when you play at a high standard. Before I used these insoles I used to get knee pain every so often , but now since i got them, I haven't had it since. SO THEY WORK IN MY OPINION!! I do have a few small problems with them though They are quite thick, it may not sound like a lot on the page but trust me they will make a normal shoe tight to wear for a while untill the shoes break out a bit (especially badminton shoes). Also it may not be a problem for most people but in badminton these will only last as long as your shoes really i have burned through the cushioning down to the plastic on some parts. Lastly they weigh quite a bit for an insole, i measured them and one is 80grams, a normal insole is roughly half that. BUT. . . these problems are minor compared to what they give you in return (no pain). I will be trying the sole response next time.


Happy Troops

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


Long Lasting cusion and high arch support.

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


Changed my life

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


Try these first!

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

Great insoles save 1 tiny thing

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

I wish I had found them years ago

The Sole is simply fantastic and I wish I had found them years ago. A 140km ride and not a grumble at all from knees or hip. It's amazing. Usually after a long ride like that I have to take a couple of prescription anti inflammatories just to ease things along in recovery. But the Sole ensured a "perfect" fit and pedal stroke which meant, almost unbelievably, that neither during the session or once home and recovering I had no discomfort. Another big hurdle they've passed is the "killer" turbo sessions my coach has me doing. Sitting on a static bike for two hours is never fun and in fact has caused me even more discomfort due to the lack of all round movement. Once again the Sole seems to be the bit of magic I have been missing. I honestly could not think higher of them. This positive feedback is totally regardless of the great customer service etc. If they didn't work I would simply just chalk it up. What more can I say than it's a great product which works! I honestly don't know how I coped without them now.

Brought back the joy of running

A great product. Had recurring knee pain which then led to hip discomfort. I was skeptical but ordered the insoles based on comments on runnersworld.com. Am very glad I did! Received them yesterday, performed the heat molding, and had my second run in them this morning. No pain! Great support. Brought back the joy of running. Thank you!


Best Insoles

I have had this insert for years, with this insert I'v had no problems with my feet or knees running at all. It is the best, ya gotta try it! Diane in Avondale, AZ

The best thing I bought myself in years

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


Happy feet, back & knees!

I have wide feet with high arches and insteps and I have always had trouble with shoes fitting properly. I've had long time lower back pain and a bad knee that's recently made my hip joint act up. My sister was visiting (see Susan from Santa Fe review below) and showed me her ultra insoles and raved about them. I ordered a pair which arrived last week and I'm completely sold on them! I've just returned to your web site and ordered two more pairs for myself and one for my husband to try. After one week of wearing your ultra softec insoles my stiff knee is much better, my back ache is nearly gone and I noticed yesterday that my hip doesn't hurt any more! Thank you for a great product!


Bravo!

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

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

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


Awesome!!

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

These sandals work better than anything I have tried before

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

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

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

Game On!

This SlimSport footbeds turned out to be the ticket I needed to up my game in the local MTB Racing scene. I wore Sole's regular footbeds in my hiking boots, though never bothered to put any in my cycling shoes. And not doing so, with my flat feet, caused me serious pain after long endurance races. My knees would pay the price! Found these SlimSports to be the perfect fit for my high-end Italian made Sidi race shoes. I spinning is corrected and I haven't suffer knee pain since I started using these...a little bit of numbing in the big toes, though I blame that on the toe box of the shoe being a bit narrow. I'm constantly changing these out between my running and cycling shoes, so I definately need to pick up another pair. Thanks for a great affordable footbed that last. Not all of us have the insurance coverage to get custom footbeds made for us. -Steve

The SOLE Custom Footbeds have helped enormously

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

This is the best product I've ever seen

This is the best product I've ever seen, after having run six marathons I had to stop running due to severe knee pain. With SOLE Custom Footbeds I can now run again... pain free. In fact, I can't run without them. I wear them in all my shoes and all the staff wear them and swear by them.

I am extremely pleased with my SOLE Custom Footbeds

I am extremely pleased with my SOLE Custom Footbeds. I have pronated feet and had used custom-made orthotics in the past, but they were expensive and somewhat uncomfortable. I lost them a few years back and couldn't really justify the cost of buying new ones. I was looking online for an inexpensive alternative when I stumbled onto your product. Although I was a bit skeptical, the money-back guarantee gave me the confidence to order. I'm sure glad I did. I think they are more comfortable and just as effective as the $300 orthotics my doctor had made for me. My feet and knees are feeling much better. I have been able to jog almost pain-free for the first time in years. Even long shopping excursions with my wife are less fatiguing. Thanks for creating a great product at a great price. I can even afford to buy a separate set for different pairs of shoes.

A great product that can be worn out of the box

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

SOLE Custom Footbeds are awesome!

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

Your soles did save this grandmother a ton of money

My 12-yr. old granddaughter was having terrible knee pain. My son, who has been using these inserts, gave us the website address, and he helped my granddaughter heat & form them when they arrived. Fortunately, she finds the inserts so helpful that she switches the inserts each time she changes shoes. She plays softball and volleyball. Softball season, as the catcher, nearly killed her with knee pain; she received the inserts prior to volleyball and was much better. I believe the problem is hereditary in the shape and form of our feet. You will probably be getting more orders for sandals and more sizes over time! Your soles did save this grandmother a ton of money as my grandchildren are uninsured, and I have to pay medical bills for them. Thank you for the great product and the medical savings.

I've developed a crunchy knee

I've developed a "crunchy" knee and was favoring it, causing altered gait. I saw a physical therapist who strengthened legs and sold me Sole footbeds to counter pronation. Just returned from a 2-week walking tour (~ 62 miles total) in Scandinavia where all moving parts held up great! I had footbeds (unaltered by heat treatment) in both walking shoes and hiking boots. The double socks were great too.

Found them to be as good as expensive orthotics

I have bone spurs on my heels and knee injuries in the past. I have used Sole innersoles for a few years, both for tennis and in my casual shoes and found them to be as good as expensive orthodics. I originally bought two pair and just purchased two new pair as well as the sandals. They are great...as usual!
