Less morning pain and all day comfort


Made such a difference!

I am a daily walker and have significant lower back pain or leg aches if I am not wearing support on my feet. I have high arched and found that the SOLE insole helped to support my arch from collapsing. The met pad is a must for metatarsal pain. Its subtle enough that it almost feels like it isn't there but has all the benefits of a met pad. Highly recommend these insoles!


4th Pair - Love Them!

I love these flip flops, and have bought multiple pairs over the years. I wear them every day (I'm in a warm climate) and they hold up pretty well. They REALLY help with my feet (bunions) and ankle problems. Since I've purchased SOLE products my foot pain is a thing of the past. I was super skeptical when my doc said I should wear supportive footwear only. I really didn't believe it. But now I do. SOLE is the ticket!


Game Changer

I was recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my left knee. I was taking daily walks outside for exercise but it caused pain. I had trouble getting up curbs and stairs, etc. I bought these and the first time I wore them I felt the difference immediately! Walking is no longer an issue, nor are stairs. I thought I was headed for more PT, injectors, or possibly surgery with the way it felt prior to wearing these. THANK YOU!!!

Comfortable and functional

I have terrible foot pain if the ball of my foot is constricted at all and these slides are super comfortable and cause me no pain. Yet they stay on well even though they are not constrictive. I am very happy with them.


Knees feel better.

As a pain-free runner for about 30 years I was mortified when my right knee began really hurting in April. Despite icing and taking it easy things weren't getting better so I went to the physical therapist in early May. John gave me two "prescriptions"" 1. a series of exercises which I haven't been good at doing, and 2. to buy SOLE active insoles -- which I ordered that day. The insoles made a world of difference -- as John said they would -- my knee soreness greatly decreased within weeks so I could briskly walk the dogs five to ten miles per day. Recently I've started running again -- with my SOLE inserts -- and so far, so good.


Even better than the rest of my SOLE sandals

Due to back and foot issues, I have been wearing SOLE flip flops exclusively for over 10 years, which explains why I own more than 10 pairs! These are sleeker and lighter than the ones I normally wear and I love them so much that I am wearing them inside instead of slippers. I have one leg slightly longer than the other, so my shoemaker fits the right one with a lift - not something you can do with cheap sandals. They are sporty yet delicate enough to wear with a dress. I have already ordered another pair! I am so glad my best friend, who was dealing with a foot injury, turned me onto these. My sister, who also has foot issues, is now a fan thanks to me. I bought her a pair for Christmas this year, because she wears the ones I bought her exclusively as well. All this style, and the reduction of pain makes life super sweet.


Excellent product

I suffer from plantar fasciitis. SOLE was recommended by my doctor. I tried medication, physical therapy but nothing worked. I purchased SOLE inserts, Active Thick and I am able to run without pain. I have purchased another two pairs to have them in all of my shoes.


Sole review

I have a disintegrating disc in my lower back which results in chronic pain. Plus I have some issues with my feet and wear orthotics in my shoes. I used to go barefoot at home but it was suggested to me that it would help if I wore shoes at home as well. I didn't want to have to wear socks and shoes at home, so I tried the SOLE slides and have never looked back. I've been wearing them for about 6 years now approx. I actually have been stocking up on them since the inventory is usually low, and also ones that I've liked in the past have discontinued. I also have some SOLE flips that I wear in the summertime, which are a great option when it's hot out. They are very light and uncomfortable.


Outstanding orthotics

This is truly an excellent orthotic for Morton's Neuroma pain. I've tried many different brands, but SOLE's are the best yet. I have a number of the Active Thin with Met Pads, but also tried the Medium and Thick orthotics - all work great depending not he type of shoe and how much room you have to work with. The thicker pads are a bit more comfortable, but the thin is actually really very supportive and has enabled me to wear dress boots with a heal without numbness or pain. I highly recommend these orthotics, and SOLE has fantastic customer service if you are in any way not satisfied.


Perfect for plantar fasciitis

This is the second pair of slides I've gotten from Sole. I have plantar fasciitis in both feet. On recommendation from my MD I started wearing them and have gotten long lasting relief!! I can finally walk with no pain!! This pair runs a 1/2 size small so go up a 1/2 a size. The Velcro makes for a good fit. Definitely will buy again!!


Great Insole

I have bad knees and these insoles really helped relieve the pain I was experiencing everyday. I have been using them for over a year now and I won't wear my sneakers without them. The fit was perfect. They felt comfortable right out of the package.


Beyond expectations!

I bought these for my boyfriend who has struggled with foot pain due to having flat feet. It's been two months since he started wearing them and they have done wonders for his pain. They fit great and seem to be holding up very well. I was hoping they would help even just a little bit but they've helped a lot and I'm very pleased with this purchase!


Insole review

I had went to my foot doctor for a yearly checkup and had talked about the fatigue and pain of being on my feet all day and climbing ladders at work. My doctor recommended I check out the SOLE site and recommended the insole I should look at. I went on the site and ordered a couple of pair of insoles. Since wearing them for a couple of months my feet and legs are feeling much better. I could not believe the difference! I am very happy with the product and the difference it has made in my life.


Always SOLE

I've been wearing SOLE orthotics for at least 10 years now. They have eliminated almost all the pain I was experiencing on a daily basis due to extremely high arches. I use the orthotics in all my footwear, including my slippers. From the active thick, the performance medium to the thin casuals, they all have a place in my life and in my shoes. They fit easily into my hiking boots and hiking shoes and have help made my trekking adventures that much more enjoyable. I've tried other brands - I'm sticking with SOLE. I find that I need a hiking boot/shoe with a large toe box for the thicker SOLE inserts to work comfortably.


They do work

These really do work. I started with the work boot insoles. I noticed a difference from walking all day with and without them. If you have low arches this will help. I notice my balance was better my knees hurt less and I could walk longer periods without feeling pain. I liked them so much I decided to try them in my casual shoes. They are costly compared to others but they do work. One thing to remember when buying shoes is that the shoes need to have removable insoles already or these will never fit. Your shoe choices might be limited but the trade off is well worth it. I can spend way more time on my feet with them than without them.


LOVE

Within a few days of wearing these foot beds, my heel pain in my right foot was gone. It's so nice to walk without pain! They are comfortable and fit my shoes just right. SOLE has a repeat customer in me.


Great flips

I had a lot of foot pain from a severe case of planters fasciitis and my Podiatrist recommended wearing these SOLE flips as slippers on the hardwood and tile floors of our house. After wearing them for a few months around the house my fasciitis is 95% better. The Monetery flips fit well and are very comfortable to wear. They are very well made and look good as well.


Life saver

I have an injured back and walking too much really hurts my back. With the active wide thick SOLE I can stay active longer and wouldn't wake up with pain in the morning.

Pain free!

I really love these shoes. I have heal spurs and plantar fasciitis and I have not walked without pain in three years. These shoes allow me to walk without pain. They are wide even for my wide feet but it takes only a few hours to get used to this. They are so comfy I really want to sleep with them on. At first they look a little like space boots but when you get used to them they turn into the cutest shoes ever. Very unusual and with beautiful colors. I can not recommend enough!

Caroline Heuermann


No more pain!

So happy with these! Helped my toes and top of my foot feel so much better. Love that Met pad and the lining is cozy and comfy. I like the way they feel and look!


Instantly comfortable

The ball of my foot always gives me a great deal of pain. I immediately felt these helped the issue, and now that I've worn them for hundreds of hours on the job, I am going to buy them for life. My big toe was sore for a bit, as it's adjusting to proper alignment. This is easily fixed by doing toe crunches, such as picking up foam and placing it in a bowl with your toe.


Awesome insoles!

Such a great insole! I used to have superfeet insoles and they weren't the best. However, the Lifestyle Medium insoles help with my knee pain (due to pronated ankles/feet). They're also very soft and give my whole foot support, especially the arch. It fits perfectly in all my shoes, and has started to really form around my foot. I'll definitely buy them again.


Amazing pain relief!

Have been wearing/using this product for a long time. Recommended to me by a professional to remove or lessen pain. Will not use any other so called insole!! Amazing support.


I would recommend

These are great. They helped with foot pain. Super comfortable right away. I also use them as house slippers.


Helped me stand all day in comfort

I have very flat feet that made standing all day extremely painful. I got a job where I walk all day and I always went home in pain. I decided to get some SOLE insoles to see if they could help even the slightest bit and they did. I saw the return policy and figured there was no harm giving them a shot. Paired with a supportive pair of socks the pain is almost negligible. There's still some pain on long days but it's manageable and goes away after some rest! They helped me make my job manageable and made my time after work fun.


Comfort

Love it! Fits my foot really well. Is tighter fitting than the Costa. Costa is better if you have "tall" feet. Leather is good, after the first seeking wearing it stretches a bit and becomes more comfortable and fitted. I have tailor bunion pain and helped


My go-to sandals

These are the best sandals I've ever owned. I have problems with plantar fasciitis and hip pain. But with these sandals, I can walk all day pain-free. Will be buying another pair next summer!


Great Fit and Support

I have a college baseball catcher and he was having trouble with plantar and pain up near toe. These inserts have been awesome. Great support and no pain. The fit into his athletic shoes was right on. Best yet no pain!! He loves them!


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


Lifechanging

I purchased these after a recommendation from my chiropractor to correct my flat feet. I didn't know how much pain I was having specifically due to my feet and the lack of support my shoes were providing. I was able to put them in a pair of shoes I haven't been able to wear because they were so flat but now I can wear them everyday and I love them! I will say, putting them in a shoe with decent support seems to overcorrect but putting them in something with a flat sole is fabulous! The first week or so I felt my feet were a little sore after 5/6 hours of wearing but now I don't want to wear anything else and I cannot wait to get more!


Great product

I was having plantar fasciitis pain from bike riding. I have been using them for 2 months. These have certainly helped, but not completely cured me, but much of the pain is gone. That said, my shoes are much more comfortable and supportive. The insoles were easy to heat and use, and fit perfectly. I bought a second pair if they wear out. Wonderful product.


Foot pain

I been using SOLE inserts for two years now. I'm always on my feet at work either walking or standing around. They are comfortable and have last a long time.


Pain relief

I have arthritis in my left foot on the outside center of my foot. My doctor referred me to get these and I was skeptical about it. But since he suggested it, I got some and almost immediately felt relief from the pain. I am able to walk again without limping and without pain.

Happy Joints and Happy Feet

I am flat-footed (and pronate), and while I love thongs, they simply don't do the bottom of my feet and rest of my body any good. I usually end up with lower joint problems from my hips down to my ankles when I would wear traditional sandals. The arch support in the Costa Flip allows me to comfortably wear them (and actually walk long distances) without any pain during or after. It is such a nice change. I wear them often on walks that are often a good hour or so -- not just to wander around in! The bed has a nice amount of cushion, and I never experienced any blisters! Not even after my first wear.


Really nice looking shoes

I am a huge fan of SOLE footbeds. I have plantar fasciitis and had constant foot pain before discovering SOLE. I really like these Lark shoes. It is hard to find dress shoes that accommodate a sole footbed so I am happy that SOLE has expanded to making shoes. These are nice looking shoes. I am a bit concerned about how the wool will stand up to mud or rain, but I plan to mostly wear them in my office so that should not be a concern.


SOLE has saved my feet

I wear sole footbeds in all of my shoes, and they have made such a huge difference to my feet. I can't wear regular sandals and I am so happy that Sole makes sandals that I can wear without being in pain. I love these slides. I have the navigator sandals, which I love, and the cork flips, which I love, but I think I love these slides most of all. They are comfortable, easy to kick on and off but stay on my feet really well. My only complain is that they only come in black. I would love to have a pair that were purple.


Excellent support and cushion

Works well for support and foot pain. Unlike prescription orthotics it cushions the large foot joints with movement. It is very good for allowing motion but giving support to the whole body. I prescribe it frequently for patients with foot pain with good results. The sandals allow support but cushioning


So much comfort

They really help me with the pain that I was feeling in the middle of my foot. They give me so much support that I what to wear them all day. I highly recommand them!


So mush confort

They really help me with the pain that I was feeling in the middle of my foot. They give me so much support that I what to wear them all day. I highly recommand them!


Supportive

I purchased these due to a heel spur that was causing me tremendous pain. Summer is too warm to wear supportive sneakers all the time and regular sandals don't offer the support I need. I love everything about these, definitely worth the money.


Relieves foot pain

I rely on SOLE footbeds to prevent plantar fasciitis. They're better than custom made expensive orthotics. I don't wear shoes without them.


Heel pain GONE

I went to the foot doctor and couldn't afford the 400.00 customized insoles nor did I want the steroid shot to take away my severe heel and arch pain. I asked him about the SOLE insoles he had for sale in the office and he recommended them as well so I got them. Within two days my pain level went from an 8 to a 1. Total answer to prayer and haven't had to miss work. I highly recommend them. I work for Budweiser and my supervisor was babbling around today with heel pain. I gave him the link to this site and told him to stretch his calves. Thanks for offering such a wonderful product!


Life Changing

I love running. I was unable to run for 2 years because I had plantar fasciatis. The combination of stretching the shit out of my calves, starting super slow and super short distances, icing, and wearing the active medium foot bed as just about cured my heel pain. I still have to manage it but I am running 4-5 miles couple times a week again. Go SOLE!


Catalina sport flip

My physical therapist recommended the SOLE shoe inserts for my court shoes due to my planter fasciitis issue in both feet. I liked the fact that the product contoured to my footprint. It was at this time that my search for a sandal began. I don't like wearing closed toe shoes all summer. So I gambled and ordered my first pair of Catalina flips and have never been disappointed. The arch support and heel cup support my feet. I am on my 8th pair. They are my go-to sandal . The support of SOLE products were my answer - I've been foot pain free for 8 yrs!


5 stars!

Great product! I have Achilles tendonitis so wearing flip flops seems impossible now without suffering from a great deal of pain afterward. My Chiropodist recommended I try a pair of sandals from SOLE and he was correct. These flip flops are amazing. I just recently wore them for 2 full days on a vacay that required a great deal of walking each day and I had zero pain afterward. I'm impressed. I also like that they look nice / sporty and don't look plain like a lot of other sandal brands that provide foot support. 5 stars for this product!


Great option for support

I've been wearing SOLE footbeds for almost 4 years now to help with pain from OEM insoles, and they have made a huge improvement. I recently bought the Work Medium and have been using them for a bit over a month... they have been performing great in work shoes, casual shoes, and sneakers. Trim to fit was easy!


Highly recommended

My bodyworker, who makes orthotics, recommended the red Sole inserts to me as the best alternative to expensive handmade orthotics. I have now used them for several years, and recommended them to a friend who said they lessened his lower back pain.


Solution for flat feet

I was born with flat feet. Now that I am in my 60's, recently retired, the pain in my feet had increased dramatically. A friend told me about SOLE. I bought the Mendocino support to wear in the house with bare feet or socks. This pair has made a real difference. The pain is gone most of the time as I have good support now.


Pain relief. Getting Mature (older)

It's really works!!! Perfect product!!! I am very sorry, I didn't know about it earlier in my life.


Love these sandals

I have a high arch and walking barefoot tends to aggravate pain in the arch area and my achilles. Wearing these flip flops prevents that pain and they are very comfortable. I have had my Baja sandals for about a month now and am very satisfied. Great sandals to wear everyday!


Wonderful Fit!

My mom suffers from bone corrosion and pinched nerves. Her doctor recommended her to use SOLE footwear. I'm just really happy that it truly works for her and eases her pain a lot more! I'd like to add that customer service is awesome and pretty swift too. Thank you SOLE for creating meaningful products. I will be sure to recommend you to as many as possible:)


Great insrets

I recently had a flare up of my plantar fasciitis after spending about 6 hours walking around in the woods. After about 3 weeks of foot pain I finally made a appointment with my Podiatrist. Even though it was via video conference she highly recommended getting new insoles and suggested that I get the SOLE inserts. She said they are some of the best ones on the market. I did my research on them and was surprised that they were made from recycled corks. I went online and ordered a pair of the blue ones and upon ordering them realized I submitted the order twice contacted customer service the next day and he credited my account the shipping charges as the amount of 2 pair should of been free. I was so impressed with them once i put them in my work boots the pain was almost gone within 2 days. I keep up with my daily stretching and have not had any issues in my feet ever since I inserted my SOLE inserts. I will be spreading the word about great these inserts are and have actually taken them out of my shoes and shown people them. I'm sold on SOLE.


Love the Baja Flip

I am so pleased that I ordered this comfy sandal, as it allows me to wear sandals again after an achilles injury and plantar facsiitis last year. I have no heal pain that I have had in other sandals, and I feel so much support it makes me feel confident to wear these and not fear injury. I ordered on line, so I was pleased the sandal fits to size. I love the strap material, as it is solid but comfortable, and the teal colour is really fresh and lovely. Very happy with this purchase.


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.


The Most Comfortable Flips

These are hands down the most comfortable and supportive flips I have ever had. I discovered them when I had plantar fasciitis. They really helped relieve the pain. I would even wear them in the shower for support. The metatarsal support in the front is amazing as well. They are great all around flip flops. This is my second pair, the first pair lasted for many years. I went 1/2 size up from my tennis shoe size and they fit great.


Instant comfort

I bought these a couple months ago & although I generally do not wear footwear indoors during the summer months I have slid these on a few times when my feet are bothering me & instant pain relief. Well worth the purchase!


Fantastic Flip

Since I got orthotics to put in my shoes for support I haven't worn flip flops and now after a few years I'm so happy to have found these! I've gone for long walks in them and am not in pain. I'm also excited to wear them on trips and at the beach since they are waterproof.


Saved my feet!

I normally don't write reviews but I thought it was necessary because these soles saved my feet! I bought these inserts for my peloton brand spin shoes that frankly are really thin really junky spin shoes. My large flat feet (M14) made it so after a ride my feet were hurting on the balls and heel of my feet to the point where I needed to ice daily. These inserts moulded to my feet and gave me the arch support I need to fit comfortably in the shoes and spin nearly pain free! Thanks sole! Highly recommend!


Quality of my new insoles

I am an avid walker and have used these insoles to help with the foot pain which was extreme. After using these insoles for over a year now I have almost eliminated the foot pain and make may walking journey much more manageable. I have recommended these exact insoles to a few of my walking buddies as well.


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.

Recovery from pain of the feet

Once again very please with SOLE products. Now buying them for family members, sharing the recovery from feet pain.


SOLE footbeds = No more pain

I have a pair of shoes that were not giving me the support I needed. I have pain in my arches when I stand and walk. I was about to throw the shoes out when I learned of SOLE. I bought a pair of Performance footbeds and replaced the insole of the shoes with the new SOLEs. I've been wearing the footbeds for about a month and a half and I no longer have pain because the SOLEs have given me the comfort and support I needed. And I didn't have to look for another pair of shoes. I also love the fact that you can trim the footbeds to fit your shoe size. So easy. I've worn prescription orthotics before, but they were extremely hard and uncomfortable. I stopped wearing them. For me, these SOLE footbeds are better than custom orthotics.


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.


These shoes!!!

This is my second pair of these. My others lasted 3 years and only gave up a strap with my dogs thinking it was a toy! Excellent buy and helps with my back pain all day. Goes with all outfits as is neutral in tone. Definitely recommend!


SOLE

I love my SOLE flips! I have very painful feet and the only comfort I get is when I wear this product. The fit is just right and the support is perfect. I had previously had 2 pair and have completely wore them out. The material is durable they last a long time. Love them.


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 ..


These flip flops saved my feet!

I bought the product because I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis for the last 10 months. I was in extreme pain and a family friend recommended the brand. Since receiving my SOLE Costa flip flops, I have worn them every day inside and outside the house. They are the only shoe that makes my feet feel supported and comfortable. The material is flexible and soft, and the sizing guide helped me pick the perfect size (which never happens). Since receiving them, I have told many people about the brand because they have honestly saved my feet. I hope to order another style soon, these shoes are incredible.


Awesome

My daughter has a fused spine from L3-T3 and is on her feet all day. She had used SOLE in the past and went on to try other brands. She asked that I order her a pair of foot beds for her new shoes (cheap walmart non slips). New foot beds were inserted into her shoes and her back pain from standing all day has gone away. Strongly recommend these inserts.


Gave my Life Back

The title might sound dramatic but it's true. This sport flip saved my feet. I don't have pain while walking or night. Had to wear a walking shoe with orthotics. My feet were so hot especially the summer.


Durability

More durable product than the cork version in high use shoes. I use in work shoes, I walk about 13 miles each shift 5 days a week. Have multiple pairs for multiple shoes. Keeps support as I have extremely high arches and pain and trouble walking occurs if I do not use these insoles.


Worth every penny

A couple of years ago I had a severe case of plantar facitis. Doctor sent me to get custom insoles at a cost of over $200. They don't do anything my SOLE Work Mediums don't do at a fraction of the price. For years, before I found SOLE I wasted money on competitor products from Dr. Scholls and Sofsole. They are junk compared to SOLE. I've put SOLE insoles them in all my shoes now and haven't had pain since.


Best flipsEver!

We love SOLE Flips! My wife got plantar fasciitis from wearing cheap flips. She thought her days of wearing flips were over until she discovered SOLE. They cured her pain issues and now she uses her flips as her primary footwear year round.


Best flip flops ever!

I have plantar fasciitis and this flip flop is so comfortable and helps to relieve the pain. I can wear them all day with no issues. This is the only shoe I wear in the house and I love that they are eco friendly. I have several pairs of shoes & flip flops and I will never be without a pair. I would highly recommend these shoes & insoles. Thank you SOLE for such a wonderful product.

men's exhale purchase

My feet have been painful for years and finally a doctor told me to try your insoles. They have been great and ever since I have been buying all types of shoes and sandals from SOLE. The Exhale shoes have the same support and comfort as their other products. The fit is good and the materials are also since I use them to work in so i would have foot support.


Work amazing

As a carpenter being on my feet all day, these insoles were the answer. No heal pain now and the insoles are very comfortable. Will be purchasing more for other foot ware.

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.


Fabulous for plantar fasciitis and everyday comfort

I bought 2 pairs of SOLE flips and they did, indeed, cure my plantar fasciitis. They prevented my foot from ever extending fully, when you get out of bed and step directly on the floor, which causes the sharp pain as the tissues that have started healing in the night get torn again and again. I put a waterproof pair right beside my bed, that I slipped into without ever having my feet touch the floor in the morning. I wore them right into the shower; again my feet never touched the floor. Then I transferred to a cork flip after that for the rest of the day at home. After 3 months my plantar fasciitis was gone! I continue to wear Sole flips, indoors every day and don't ever go barefoot anymore. After 10 years, my plantar fasciitis has not returned.


Happy customer... no pain!

I have been using them for more than a month now and my pain is gone, I couldn't walk without pain before. I am so happy that my brother recommended your brand. The material used to make them is comfortable and I am not going to stop using them now that I found them.

Best yet!

Been wearing these two months and my severe heel pain has gone away & so have the previous expensive insole I was directed towards! They worked until my feet needed to heal...the foot doc said he used the SOLE Products personally to give his feet a break...He Was right!


Forever satisfied

This is my third pair of SOLE inserts. They have become an essential part of my proactive plan to relieve back pain that originates from not having good foot support. They are lightweight, fit easily into my shoes, and are very comfortable. I will continue to trust and use this brand.


Wife Love's the Balboa Flip Flop

I bought the Balboa Flips, a few weeks ago, for my wife to replace some older Sole flip flops. My wife loves them even more than her old ones. These are her new favorites out of 3-4 pair. She loves how well they fit her foot and the cushion they provide. She is able to wear them all day standing on her feet without any foot tiredness or pain As always the service provided by SOLE is wonderful!


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!

Wonderful

I have flat feet and these sandals help with arch support. I have right foot pain due to this condition and I can wear these sandals all day and have no pain. I also like to use them as house slippers as it is uncomfortable for me to go barefoot. I love the fit and material of this sandal makes it very comfortable. This is my first pair but I will be purchasing them again as needed.

The only flip flops I purchase!

After a season of painful plantar fasciitis, I purchased the SOLE product. Now these are the only ones I buy and have numerous pairs for around the house, garden, overnight bag, etc. Great product with the relaxed look of a flip flop but with a supportive foot bed.


5 Stars for Catalina Sport Flip

Fantastic flip flop with amazing support!! They have been a great help in relieving the pain from my plantar fasciitis. I've worn Catalina flip flops for the last few summers and wear them as my indoor slippers all year long. They're easy to clean too. You'll differently want to buy more than one pair.


Sole has saved my feet

I have been using SOLE insoles since 2002 after developing plantar fasciitis. I have them in literally every pair of footwear I own, including the slippers I wear around the house. They have made an incredible difference to my life. As little as two hours walking in shoes without the SOLE insoles and I am in pain. With the SOLE insoles I can hike all day. When SOLE started making flip flops I was so excited, as since you can't put an orthotic insole in a flip flop I had been unable to wear them for years. I now own the SOLE cork flips (which I love) and the navigator sandals (which I love even more) and I recently bought the Grace shoes to wear as dress shoes. This means I can have SOLE insoles under my feet all day every day. The other thing I want to note is that these insoles are basically indestructible. I still own, and still use, the first pair I ever bought back in 2002. So when you look at the price, keep in mind that you will be using these for years.


satisfied customer

These were my first purchase from SOLE. I have to be honest, when I first tried the flip flops on I wasn't sure I was going to like them. I purchased these flip flops as a recommendation from my chiropractor because I was having pain in my arches. I have only owned them for a short time (4 weeks) but the more I wear them the more I love them. I wear a size 8 and they are true to size and very comfortable. They are already molding to my feet. I am very happy with my purchase!


Most Comfortable Flip Flops EVER

I am so happy that I found these shoes they've helped me tremendously with my foot pain from chronic pain from neuropathy. These are the only flip-flops that I can wear, they are like heaven on my feet. Such a great product very well-built I even wore them walking in the river. They have a customer for life I have these in three different colours! Thank you SOLE!!


Magic! Plantar fasciitis delight

I love these slippers!! I have suffered with plantar fasciitis for a really long time. Usually stretching was the only remedy for the pain, until I was told by a friend to try these slippers. This is my 5th pair. I bought different colors and the sport slides because somehow, my plantar pains have disappeared after wearing SOLE slippers. I have spent tons of money trying to find a remedy. It's not an overnight instant fix, but after a few weeks of wearing these slippers around, my feet pain gradually got better. It's been 3 years and no more plantar pains. The insoles didnt work for me, but these slippers sure do. Magic!!


Love these

I was diagnosed with plantar facitis. and was talking with a friend about it . She too has it and she was referred to a podiatrist for orthotics. That physician recommended these insoles before spending lots of money on orthotics. She loves her sole inserts so I purchased two pair following our conversation . I immediately loved them when I put them in my shoes. They are very soft and supportive. Was able to work my full shift with minimal pain. Things have been improving daily . No cutting required , they fit my shoes like a glove .

Active insoles

A few years back I was having right arch and heel pain, so I went to see a podiatrist. He fitted me for orthotics but they were cost prohibitive so he recommended I try out SOLE insoles first. After I purchased my first pair, I haven't looked back! No heel or arch pain anymore and I'm able to maintain my 20-30 miles of running per week with no problems. I wear them in all my shoes, slippers, etc.


Comfortable and stable footwear

I have been wearing SOLE cork flip flops for two months, They are very comfortable and help with foot pain after a long workday. The materials a tough and take a bit of a break in period but once they are broken in I want to wear them 24/7. Great summer shoe , even around the house anytime


Love these!

I wear these footbeds everyday! They are extremely comfortable and reduce the pain in my lower back.

Excellent Quality

I started using this companies inserts 4-5 years back while in the Royal Canadian Navy. My foot pain brought on by poor arch and heal support while wearing sea boots and combat boots transversing steal decks, hard cement and pavement during my daily work routine. The pain became severe. I was eventually issued a set of SOLE inserts. The inserts definitely increased my quality of life. I eventually equipped all my footwear, civilian and military, with this companies inserts. The quality of the inserts are superb with excellent arch support and heal support with the cupping action at the heal. I swear by this company. Now that's myself. My wife has been suffering from foot pain as well for years, and kept buying cheap inserts. I ordered her a set of these inserts, we moulded them to her feet. She tells me that they have made a massive difference due to the support provided. They are expensive, but you get what you pay for. they do last quite a long time. Ive sanitized them and they come out nice and clean.


Best Insoles on the Market

A physical therapist recommended SOLE to me about 20 years ago. I had repeat ankle sprains and tendonitis in my Achilles tendon. Some of that was due to sports injuries, but I also have high arches. I needed better foot support. I was also an undergraduate student, so I had very little money. Thankfully, the student health center sold SOLE insoles. I have been using them ever since. If you have any type of joint pain, including back pain, you need these insoles. Since I have multiple pairs of insoles, they tend to last me for about five years. The benefits far outweigh the costs of SOLE products.


Excellent

I recently replaced some custom inserts with these insoles and have been very pleased with their performance. I have more space in my shoes and have been able to keep my foot pain from my neuroma at bay. I purchased a pair of these at a ski shop as well and use them in my boots and continue to have plenty of room and increased comfort on the slopes. I appreciate the environmental concern of the company as well, which makes me happy to support them.


SOLE is the Best!

SOLE footbeds saved my feet! My job requires standing and walking on hard surfaces all day and it had gotten to the point where I had to soak my feet the minute I got home. I've been using them for about 10 years now and will continue to. I put them in most of my shoes - including my slippers as I spend quite a bit of time in them when at home. SOLE footbeds took away the pain and let me get back to walking and hiking when I'm not at work. I love them!


The best insoles - keep my feet healthy

I have SOLE insoles in my performance ski boots and most of my shoes. They keep my feet supported and shape to my feet very well. When I started to experience some foot pain with accompanying plantar fasciitis I tried SOLE insoles and my pain gradually faded away after a few weeks of stretching and consistent use of my active and performance medium footbeds. I love them! Thanks a lot SOLE. R. Gibson Portland, Oregon


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!


Catalina Sport Flips

I have been wearing these flips for 10 years. I own 7 pairs, and have just ordered a pair of the Baja flips. I have a large bunion on my left foot so very limited what footwear I can wear. These flips are the most comfortable shoes of any kind I have ever worn. I can walk all day with no foot pain. I love my SOLE flips!


Longtime use

I have been using SOLE footbeds for almost as long as they have been in business, I believe. I had chronic Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. I had 2 prior foot surgeries for neuromas. I was on my feet all the time as a pediatrician and was miserable with pain especially in the morning and was limping at work. I was referred to an orthopedist who specialized in foot care. He referred me to an orthotics store where I was introduced to and purchased my first SOLE footbeds. I have used them for possibly 18 years now. I had tried custom orthotics prior which were too uncomfortable to wear. I discovered the SOLE website many years ago and buy as needed. I only have foot pain if I wear shoes without the footbeds. I walk my 10,000 steps per day and ballroom dance. I have recommended SOLE footbeds to friends and even to parents of my patients.


Arch support

About three years ago, I bought a new pair of walking shoes and SOLE insoles to give me the rigid arch support my podiatrist told me I needed to get rid of chronic foot pain. The pain stopped immediately, and wearing them every day, I continue to be pain-free.

Margaret Ann Belanger


walking without pain

SOLE flip flops are the only shoes I wear. This has been life changing for me. After healing from plantar fasciitis & achilles tendinitis & living with arthritis daily it's difficult to find sandals. I heard about SOLE flip flops & purchased a couple pairs. No matter what your issue is you will find a SOLE to fit your need. They feel like they were custom made for me. They look great with the cork & foam & in sunshine or rain they wear well.


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.


I cant keep them off my feet!!!!!

I suffer from heel spur and plantar fasciitis. I was online searching for new work shoes restaurant grades slip resistant. When I came across these boots. A little skeptical at first but decided when I give them a try the price was right. I ordered these and two other shoes that popped up which I would write a review for later. I receive them in no time tried them on and they were OK decided to wear them to work to check out slip resistant . But wearing them all day I came home to my feet not hurting. So I tried the other pair on the similar to the boots a little more slip resistant but not slip resistant enough for restaurant work. I started wearing these out and about when I got a run errands when I'm walking the dog and stuff I'm walking I'm waking up to no pain or days that I wear these shoes versus the days that I wear my tennis shoes.This was one of the best purchases I've done this year she was and I would but I will buy more so shoes in the future. I have only use their insoles in the past and I could tell the difference at work we're not using them versus when using them but this is something with the shoes is totally different then the insoles I highly recommend buy more than one pair because you won't want to take them off. They are firm enough To support my weight, and to keep my arches up off the ground. SOLE did a wonderful job and I will be buying a couple pairs of sandals for the summer months.

The BEST sandals I've ever owned

These are the best sandals I've ever owned! They are so comfortable and support the arch of my feet so well it's incredible! I had plantar fasciitis and was in great pain prior to purchasing the sandals. After wearing them for about 7 to 10 days I had no pain at all and will always always have a pair of these in my shoe wardrobe. Thank you SOLE!


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.


We love these

Both my husband and I have been wearing these for 6 months and love them. I was sufffering from plantar fasciitis and Morton's Neuroma and he has needed custom orthotics for years for foot pain. We both find the insoles comfortable, reduce pain and are light weight and easy to transfer between shoes. These are an economical way to get relief!


great footwear.

Excellent shoe! I bought multiple pairs. Very comfortable, looks good and supportive. I use them at my work in recreation therapy all day walking around at an acute hospital rehab. I have high arches, narrow small feet size 9 for a 6 foot tall body. With wrong shoes or shoes that don't fit well I end up with lower back pain and cramps that radiate up my shoulders into my arms and fingers, triggering fibromyalgia. With good shoes like these I do not have any pain or inflamation. Thank you!

Tracey Hendle


Love them

I wear my sandals in the house right now because it's cold here in Ontario still. They are so comfortable and give me lots of support and relieve pain from my plantar fasciitis. I am looking forward to them becoming my go to sandals this summer


Awesome Flip Flops

2 years ago I was suffering from Plantar's Fasciitis. I bought the SOLE beach flips back then, loved them, they helped and I haven't had that kind of pain ever again. I decided to buy another pair but got the Santa Cruz Flip this time, still awesome and I like the look of these ones better!


Saved my feet

I have bone spurs that become very painful when cycling for hours in stiff-soled cycling shoes. After trying all sorts of pads, shoes, and insoles, the SOLE insoles have been a lifesaver. Well, ok, a footsaver. I recently completed a 500 mile gravel bike race with very little foot discomfort and I give a lot of credit to these SOLE insoles. These thick soles work best in shoes that already run a little big.


I've got SOLE

Found my first of SOLE's at a orthopaedic shoe store about. 4 years ago. I had been suffering with Planter Fasciitis off and on for many years. I had previously purchased many different drugstore insoles over the years that had never seem to work. I've been pain free ever since I have been using them. They are very well made. I highly recommend them.


Best yet

I love the Active Wide Thick SOLE footbed. It comfortably fits my whole foot. I live with your products daily and over the past 10 or more years they are with me always. I keep a pair in each shoe I own and they work great in my dress shoes. They also work well in my jogging shoes (and all-in-between). I use to live with constant foot pain and worked with a few doctors and tried a number of products that I paid 10 times as much and more for. Then I tried your product and with the heat and custom fit feature I have never felt better. Thanks and have a great day.


Excellent Product

I love the SOLE inserts! I use these inserts in most of my footwear and they have been a tremendous help in solving my arch/heel pain that I experienced some 15 years ago. I love the variety of inserts which I use in the various foot wear I use. For comfort and fit, SOLE is a most excellent product!


Excellent Product

Most "flip flops" provide no arch support. SOLE has the Beach Fip that provides excellent arch support and foot pain relief. These Beach Flips are the perfect product that complements the SOLE shoe inserts that have cured my arch and heel pain!


Excellent Product

About 15 years ago I suffered from severe pain in my arches and heels. I found SOLE inserts that saved me. I tried several arch supports but the SOLE product helped me the most and can be found in most of my shoes. I love that SOLE has a variety of arch support inserts and I use them in my dress shoes, hiking boats and athletic shoes. Thanks SOLE for solving my foot/arch problem!


SOLE Met-pad is great for plantar faciatis

I've been using SOLE insoles for a couple of months. I had custom insole made about 8 years ago that made a huge difference for my plantar fasciitis (horrible pain to no pain). I've never found store-bought insoles that could match up as it's really hard to find insoles with met-pads. These insoles seem to do the trick, and seem to keep away the pain as effectively as my custom ones. I also like SOLE's flip flops (with met-pads). I can wear these for many hours of walking while I can't go 30min in a normal pair of flip flops without being in a lot of pain.


Best Flip Flop

I love my SOLE flips, I have about 7 pairs. I have inside flips I wear in the house instead of slippers as I need the orthotic support. I also have outside flips to wear out. This is my footwear of choice whenever I go out. The SOLE flips offer great support and stand up to a lot of wear. I do not experience any foot pain or heel pressure if I wear these. When I do wear bare feet or runners I do experience heel pain and sore feet.


For pain relief and proper biomechanical alignment.

I don’t have pes planus (flat feet) but I was wearing a particular tennis shoes ( which I did not do a flex test on as I never had plantar fasciitis in my life and for having played 7 days a week of tennis for 40 years) in 2012 which I didn’t realize was flexing in the middle of the arch. I then developed bilateral foot pains. I recognized the symptoms and I knew I had plantar fasciitis bilaterally. I did the flex test on the shoes and I found the cause. So I tried the SOLE Active Thick insoles in the shoes and the pain went away in about 3 weeks without doing any treatments. I now use the insoles in all the shoes I have. The one thing that is great about is the immediate noticeable change in the force generating capability of the muscles when wearing arch supports or insoles. Initially, one can get tested without wearing insoles in standing position with arms stretched out to sides (90 degrees of abduction of both shoulders), and applying a downward force around the elbow /arms. Let the testee resist. Then test again in the same position wearing the insoles and apply the same downward force. The testee and the tester should feel a difference. It should be stronger. This the reason why I recommend insoles not just to my patients who need arch supports but also for athletes who want better performance.


Another great flip!

I have been a sole customer for many years since I started having foot pain due to wearing flip flops that were flat. I usually purchase the sport flip, which I wear everywhere, but I wanted something a little different for the beach. These Costa flips are perfect. Very comfortable with support and looks great at the beach.


SOLE for the WIN

Great product. Really forms your feet well and helped my ankle pain a lot!


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


Super comfortable and durable

I've used custom orthotics for years but the price of them is substantial. I began developing issues using my custom fits and the guy at the shoe store I frequent, suggested these. And I have to say, at nearly a quarter of the cost of custom orthotics, these saved my life. I work in a warehouse with concrete floor and it's brutal on the feet but these insoles in a pair of running shoes, are the most comfortable option I've ever had. I no longer have foot pain. I will definitely continue using these insoles. They are worth every penny.


Fits great, helps fatigue

Fits great in my dress shoes. Definitely helps the pain and fatigue of standing all day. Would buy again!


"Form" over "foam"

I've had my SOLE orthotic shoe inserts for about a month, and they are by far the best I have ever owned (I've tried sooo many). The typical insoles with cushion, memory foam, gel, etc. never relieved my pain (kinda like putting foam on a hammer, but still continuing to hit your foot with the foam-covered hammer). The SOLE inserts are different. They are not soft (I have the cork version). They are firm, but their shape restores my arches and puts my feet back into the form and shape they are supposed to be in. After just an hour of adjusting to them, I had significant relief of my plantar fasciitis, which no other insole was able to provide me. This brand is a bit pricey, but well worth it. I wish I hadn't wasted so much money on all the other insoles that didn't work before discovering SOLE.


Overweight/Post Hip Surgery Win!!

This product helps my flat feet! It decreased my pain after my hip replacement. I've been wearing this for a few months and I ONLY hurt when I DON'T wear them. As an overweight person I was concerned they wouldn't be for me, but I love them, they are great construction, support me well. I have wide feet, but these fit great. They fit good in my tennis shoes. They feel good on my feet, the top is a felt like material and very soft when I wear flats without socks. So comfortable, I plan on purchasing an active footbed and a pair of sandals for this summer!! Can't wait!!


Comfy

Too many years wearing flat flip flops and sandals has left my feet in pain. Theses flips are so comfortable on my soles. I did have to wear them just a few hours at a time to get used to them, but soooo much better than what I used to wear.


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.


Best flip/orthodic/sexy shoe ever

So here it is; 5 years ago I was introduced to these flips and insoles from my sister who claimed to have her uncomfortable foot spurs disappear from wearing them...and I was having back pain so I thought I'd give them a try since I had tried many things including actual orthodics.I feel as though they completely line up my body as I stand on them. Every part of my foot feels supported and it has a ripple effect all the way up my body...amazing! They look good too! I always buy two pairs to wear in the house as slippers as well as most everywhere else I go (except the gym) that's when I use the footbeds. Best ever!


Supreme comfort and support

My podiatrist recommended these to me and in fact sold me my first pair. At 290 lbs I'm not a little guy and I wear size 13/14 extra wide shoes. I have flat feet. These insoles solve many problems for me. They give me arch support and provide much needed cushioning. I don't consider them a luxury but a necessity for my health. I can tell when it's time for a new pair by the pain in my feet. Oh yeah, while they're working I'm walking pain free. I've tried other brands and nothing else comes close. These are the best. If this doesn't fix your feet, according to my podiatrist, the next step is custom made orthotics. This is the best product, best quality, most recommended foot sole support out there.


No more planters!

I experience several different conditions that leave me with overall pain, especially in my feet. I also love sandals. These help me by aligning my feet, especially my arches that I can look great while helping my feet.


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!


Very comfortable

I found SOLE insoles on my search for Plantar fasciitis pain management about 15 years ago. I like the cushion you get while the pain is being managed. I heat mine in the oven and they end up fitting great. These are very comfortable and the material is much better than your regular insoles


Love this product

I had plantar fasciitis for 3 years. I had considered surgery because the pain was so intense. I bought SOLE footbeds at the recommendation of a foot/ankle orthopaedic surgeon. It was the best decision that I have made. They fit in my shoes perfectly and have relieved all of my pain. They are very durable and usually last me at least a year. I don't go a single day without wearing my SOLE inserts.


Boots or Slippers?

I purchased a pair of Repels as an impulse buy and I have no regrets. I am currently using them as indoor slippers and around the house on the patio. As a chronic sufferer of lower back pain and plantar fasciitis, SOLE insoles have been a game changer and a life saver. I have no less than 15 pairs for all of my shoes, boots and even my slippers. I also have the sandals, flip flops, and Repel chukkas. All products are of great quality, I frequently recommend them to friends, co-workers, and even strangers while shopping. I just purchased a set of the 198 cork blocks ... a little yoga could only be good for my back! Thank you SOLE!

Best Insole

I bought these because I had been battling plantar fasciitis for about 18 months. I swing dance 2-3 times a week, sometimes on a vinyl floor that is on top of concrete. Since wearing these, my plantar fasciitis pain resolved. I put these in my dance, walking and hiking shoes. I have been recommending them to everyone that I meet with plantars fasciitis. I found out about them from a coworker who had plantar fasciitis. She went to her doctor who recommended them. Her doctor runs and had plantar fasciitis too but had good results from SOLE insoles.


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!


Used sole since active duty military

Over 14 years ago, I stumbled on SOLE footbeds while on active duty. I used them in my flight boots until retirement, and continue to use them in all my shoes. Deep heel cup and proper arch support make for a proper shoe. Don't be fooled by cushy alternatives, they don't work. Take it from me, I've had my share of back pain and even surgery. Haven't had problems since using SOLE.


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.


Insoles

I have 2 pairs of these and I switch them back and forth, depending what footwear I am wearing at the time. I love them and without them I have so much pain in my back and hips. I wish I could afford to buy a pair for all my footwear.


Thankful

I had a Norton's neuroma in my left foot & was in pain. I got these for my running shoes . I also wear the sole flip-flops indoors & these together have helped to the point I feel like it's gone.


Less fatigue and foot pain

I have been replacing my factory insoles with SOLE products for a couple years now. More recently I am using the versions with metatarsal support. These insoles allow me to work longer with less fatigue and foot pain. My oldest pair are just now cracking and showing their age, pretty good considering they are at least 3 years old.


Love this product

I had plantar fasciitis for 3 years. I had considered surgery because the pain was so intense. I bought SOLE footbeds at the recommendation of a foot/ankle orthopaedic surgeon. It was the best decision that I have made. They fit in my shoes perfectly and have relieved all of my pain. They are very durable and usually last me at least a year. I don't go a single day without wearing my SOLE inserts.


Heel spurs.

SOLE orthotic/inserts are designed such that they alleviate my chronic, severe heel pain from heel spurs/plantar fasciitis when nothing else has worked. My podiatrist sold me my first pair 3 1/2 years ago. I have two pairs and use in all of my shoes and boots. I have SOLE slides, 4 pairs, for indoors and slides for outdoors in white and black. Going barefoot is not an option for me. Going without SOLE foot support is not a choice I make. I am so thankful for the quality, beautiful design and they last years.


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.


Great product for cycling shoes.

This is the second pair of thin soles I have purchased. I have nephropathy in my feet. I.e. painful for me to walk a lot. I used the first pair in my cycle shoes. They work great allowing me to ride much longer distances. The sole really spreads the load across the whole foot and removes the pressure points of the cleat on the peddle. I have moved the old ones to my boots and put the new ones in my new cycle shoes. Excellent product. I prefer them to my expensive custom orthodics.


Now I can wear shoes I like!

Every pair of shoes I own have had SOLE inserts for the last two years. I have two problems with my feet - Morton's Neuroma and Plantar Fasciitis. I found some specialized shoes that greatly alleviated my foot pain, but they were not only bordering on hideous, but also tremendously expensive. Then I found SOLE inserts with Met pads. Now I can buy whatever shoe I want, and by the magic of SOLE, have the same level of pain relief I got from my plain (to speak kindly) and expensive specialty shoes. The fact that SOLE is made from recycled cork is icing on the environmental cake.


Supreme comfort and support

My podiatrist recommended these to me and in fact sold me my first pair. At 290 lbs I'm not a little guy and I wear size 13/14 extra wide shoes. I have flat feet. These insoles solve many problems for me. They give me arch support and provide much needed cushioning. I don't consider them a luxury but a necessity for my health. I can tell when it's time for a new pair by the pain in my feet. Oh yeah, while they're working I'm walking pain free. I've tried other brands and nothing else comes close. These are the best. If this doesn't fix your feet, according to my podiatrist, the next step is custom made orthotics. This is the best product, best quality, most recommended foot sole support out there.


A sole with soul

I saw this insole with met pad and wondered if it was better for me than the regular SOLE insoles. I have tried thick and thin, active and performance over the years but not the met pad until now. I was a little unsure how a met pad would feel but I found out that it is comfortable for my flat feet. It is not too much different than the regular insole but provides a little extra support for the middle of the foot. If you are experiencing pain in that area the met pad is worth a try. It isn't big enough to hurt but is noticeable as a little support under the foot, a slightly different feel, just like having more arch support compared to flat insoles. For me the SOLE insoles work as well as a custom orthotic, and for the same cost of one custom orthotic I can put a SOLE insole in each pair of shoes I have.


Walking Again Pain Free

I went to the doctor with pain on the side of my foot that was diagnosed as tendinitis and advised to get SOLE inserts. Since we had an upcoming beach vacation I purchased these slides. I was amazed I could walk for hours without pain. Now that winter is here in MN, I use with slippers as house shoes. Thank You! Thank You!


Excellent fit for my hockey skates!

I love my SOLE footbeds! I struggle with plantar fasciitis and so wearing my hockey skates has been a hard thing for me - to the point that I've gone winters without skating...until I put these footbeds into my skates. Total difference. Instead of needing to get my skates off after 5 minutes, I get to play and skate for hours without pain. SO GOOD!


SO GOOD!

I love these footbeds. LOVE them! I struggle with plantar fasciitis and they have made a massive difference in my foot pain. They fit in my Blundstones perfectly. I would recommend them without hesitation.


Feet feel great

These work and feel great in my everyday cross trainers. The met pad is a great addition and is my new favorite SOLE insert. I've worn them for several weeks now and they've helped reduce my neuroma pain. I will be buying a couple more sets.


Holds up

I am a rather large fella and these still hold up. I don't know what I would do without these as I have almost no arch and in the past had a lot of foot pain. Once I started using these, the pain went away. True to size and durable.


Best flip flops ever!

Approximately 8 years ago I was diagnosed with plantars fasciitis. If you're not familiar with this injury I would compare it to walking on bruises, very painful and debilitating . I had expensive custom shoe inserts made which provided little relief. It wasn't until I purchased the SOLE flip flops that I could comfortably walk around. I wore the SOLEs inside and outside as they were the only footwear that provided any sense of comfort. I believe they helped in curing my plantar fasciitis which lasted about a year. Oh! did I mention I have worn those original SOLEs up until recently when I bought a new pair of Catalina flips? (Actually I still use the original to trek out to my hot tub). I would highly recommend the SOLE flips. Not only do they provide excellent comfort and good looks, they could be last flip flops you ever own based on their quality of construction.


Loved these

I need orthotics to prevent foot pain but wanted a sandal to wear while travelling in Ghana. Wore these all day, everyday and had no foot pain at all.... and looked good!


IN LOVE

I love these sandals. I live in SOLE sandals. The size 8 fits my foot perfectly. I no longer have any plantar fasciitis or heel spurs...it's amazing to live pain-free. Thanks SOLE!


Saved my feet

I was suffering from plantar fasciitis, very painful. Doctor recommended wearing orthotics. So I got a couple par of Sole orthotics..... and rest is history. Been wearing them ever since. Great product. Very comfortable. I highly recommend them.


Functional comfort

I bought these because they have the old last style. It's more bulky than their newer models with the leather uppers, but so comfortable immediately out of the box. I have worn SOLE casual cork flips for years and this is the same last and same sole, but for winter and rainy day use. I liked them so much I bought a second pair to keep in reserve since it appears these are discontinued. I recommend these to my patients with a wide range of forefoot pain because it is a very roomy toe box and the best combination of cushion and support. I hope they continue this combination of cork and last shape in some iteration moving forward.


Helped with plantar fasciitis

I bought these specifically for an older relative who suffers from plantar fasciitis. They reported that the shoes eased the pain of walking. In general, they said the shoes are light, comfortable and sufficiently neutral in style to not attract attention (an important consideration). They found them wide for their size (8), which was remedied by wearing thicker socks. They had some difficulty at first using the tabs to pull the shoes on but eventually got used to it. Overall, they are pleased with the shoes and are considering adding SOLE insoles to some other shoes.


Great for pain relief

I've been wearing these footbeds for a couple of months now and they have relieved 90% of my pain. So comfortable and a perfect fit. Also it feels nice to know that they use recycled corks to make them.


Supportive and protective

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


Beyond love!

I have purchased 3 different pairs of Women's SOLE flip flops over the last year and they are fabulous for managing my Paroneal tendinitis and Achilles Tendinitis. I never suffer from pain when I wear them. Likewise, I just purchased a pair of Male sandals for my partner and he likes them as well. So I saw these shoes and thought why not!? Let's try it! And ....I absolutely LOVE them! Soooo comfortable yet professional. In fact, I'm considering buying a second pair in a different colour. SOLE never lets me down! Always a pleaser! :)


Zero Drop - SOLE Gets it Right

SOLE inserts were recommended by my orthopedist for flat feet. I bought these to fit Altra running shoes which are zero drop. I had tried other inserts but found out they were not zero drop and the increased heel height caused pain. No insert should add heel height. The Active Wide Medium fits well in the toe box. Since I wear a half size, I ordered the larger size footbed and trimmed it. Love my shoes with SOLE footbeds!


Insole Review

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

Best thing happening to my feet!!!!

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


Pain relief

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


Walking on a cloud

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

Shannon Harder


Best Flip Ever!

I can't say enough good things about the Del Mar Flip! My flat feet are very prone to Plantar Fasciitis, and I wear these supportive flips all day every day with no pain!


100% comfort

I have been having pain with plantar fasciitis for the last few years and these sandals are the only thing that keep the pain away. They are so comfy and are now my new gold sandals! Amazing product, I have about 5 different pairs!


Love!!!!

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


Love Them!

These have been the best thing that I have done for my feet pain. They have changed the way I live my day! Thanks SOLE!


Great product

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


Greater comfort

I find the extra cushion and shock absorption reduces my pain in feet and calf. I am able to go longer and farther with them, and the repurposed cork appeals to me as well.


Best insoles ever

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

Diana Sullivan


Love Love my SOLE Sandals

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

Nikki


Love these!

I've been wearing several of SOLE flips for over 5 years now. I can't say enough good things! I live in Florida so flip are a year-round thing for us and I have 4-6 pairs at any given time. These are the only brand that truly release the pain from my plantar fasciitis and keep it away. I like the cork base, they are a little softer on my feet for long wear and my hubby likes that they absorb a bit of sweat for him. I love their inserts too!


Heel Pain Solved

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


My favorite flip flops!

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


Life Saver

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


Top-quality insoles!

I've been wearing my new SOLE insoles for a few weeks now and I'm really enjoying them. They've all but eliminated much of the pain I experience as an individual with flat feet and they fit in a variety of the shoes I own (professional and leisure styles). Definitely looking like I'll be a repeat customer!


My SOLE Flips!

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


Healthy Solution

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


Great shoes!

I was suffering with heel pain so I purchased these shoes and after wearing them for 1 day my heel feels so much better. The shoes fit a little tighter when I first put them on but they did stretch out and are the perfect fit now! I love that I don't have to work to keep them on my feet. These shoes were so great I bought another pair (Balboa Flip). I definitely recommend these shoes!


Best investment

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


No more pain!!!

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


The Best!

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


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.


great!

I have a pair of these in all my shoes and boots! I love, love, love them! They have completely eliminated my plantar fasciitis pain! I recommend to everybody!


I could walk again

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


Awesome!

I have been wearing SOLE flips for 5+ years. I had plantar fasciitis and was in constant pain, but not since wearing these flip flops. I also have the inserts for my work shoes and sneakers. Won't wear shoes without them! I can stand for 8+ hours in comfort.


Adorable sport flip

I ordered two Catalina Sport Flip, one for indoor and another for outdoor. They look so cute and fit so comfortable. I can be on my feet the whole day. They are truly Anti-Odor which it was very important to me since my feet sweat a lot, the footbed is perfect because it absorbs moisture. The Met Pad Support is so soft and gentle, it reduced plantar fasciitis symptoms. I am very satisfied with this flips because walking around is no longer painful or tiring for my feet and I get compliments for the look.


Hiking Boot Comfort

These make my feet so much happier on my long treks - I have high arches and occasional pain when wearing my stiff mountaineering boots on long steep days so these insoles have made a world of difference!


Love these foot beds!

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


Finally, a shoe insert that works!

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


Best insoles for flat feet or fallen arch

These are the best insoles if you have flat feet or fallen arch support. I have tried many brands but only these gave me relief from my pain. I have three sets of insoles and flipflops too.


Walking on Clouds

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


No more plantar fasciitis pain

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


Game changer!

I am here to tell you that after years of painful feet and shins the SOLE insole that I purchased has literally changed my life. I can participate in my daily walks, hikes with friends, and badminton whenever I get the chance. Thank you SOLE for making quality insoles at affordable prices!


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!!

I have a BUNCH of Sole and Love Them All

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


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!


Relief

Post boot from my plantar fasciitis issue, these inserts allowed me to resume my outdoor activities with no pain. I now use SOLE inserts in all my footwear.


Womens Sport Flips

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


W2W

After having pain in my feet from walking, these have given me comfort and relief


Love this footwear!

I love being barefoot, but a recent case of plantar faciitis has prevented me from doing so. These flip flops are so comfortable and the closest thing to barefoot while still wearing supportive footwear! These along with using the footbeds in my closed toe footwear have been pinnacle in healing my plantar faciitis and keeping me pain-free.


Excellent

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


Excellent!

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


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.


Great

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

Donna Beattie


Long time fan

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


SOLE insole

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


Orthotics

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


I can walk again!

I need a footbed in most shoes to be able to walk due to a hip problem. The SOLE Active Thin footbed is the perfect addition to my shoes providing enough support for miles of pain free walking. Can't be without them!


The best!!!

I started using SOLE a couple months ago after coming back from injury and also suffering from Plantar Fasciitis. This product has enabled me to resume training and properly manage my PF pain on a daily basis. Without these insoles I would definitely NOT be running and probably not walking very well either. Thanks SOLE much!!!!


Great foot beds / insoles

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


A happy runner once again!

I was bothered by bad plantar fasciitis for more than a year and was unable to run regularly due to the pain. I had to force myself to rest for a period of time before running again and the pain would come back after I resume my running. I saw my favourite runner - Dean Karnazes was advertising for Sole footbeds and started to do research on it and found out that they may help me to treat my plantar fasciitis. I bought a pair of the thickest version and used them on my running shoes. True enough, I was able to run pain-free. I was so amazed. I have been running every single day now and I am no longer being bothered by PF. They are life-changing. I am able to enjoy running again!!!


Highly Recommend

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


Saved my ski touring trip!

While training for a ski touring trip I developed a freak case of what I believe was metatarsalgia- literally 2 weekends before my trip- which caused me such pain while skinning up hill I thought I might have to cancel the trip to the Tetons. I happened upon these insoles at REI 3 days before flying out. I molded them at home, skied on piste for a day then toured for 2 days with about 6k feet of climbing and zero pain! I even did a tour at home today. Feet are in great shape! I have low volume/ high arch and narrow feet.


Life changing

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


say goodbye to foot pain

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

Rachel


LOVE MY NEW RECYCLED CORK FLIPS!

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


Got me running again

I developed a nasty case of Plantar Fasciitis. I was hobbling around until a friend recommended SOLE footbeds 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.


Made my running comfortable

As an active runner, I was suffering plantar fascitis since several months and my orthopedic soles hadn't been of a great help so far. When I first tried Sole footbeds, I had the big surprise to have my plantar pain reduced and although this pain hasn't disappeared yet completely (I only have footbeds in my running shoes and I wear high heels the rest of the time :-(((, these footbeds made my running much more enjoyable. I'm now purchasing my second pair as I consider the first pair may be "used" by now and may not be giving the same efficiency as it did (I run about 200 kms per month).


Awesome footbeds

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


Just like my 400 dollar orthotics

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


Best ever

These are by far the best insoles I've ever purchased! I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis and these mold to my feet exactly where I need the support! They are even better than my custom made orthotics!


Life Changing

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

Carmen Sanders


Foot pain

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


Best for plantar issues

I found these by accident a year ago and they are fantastic. If you have plantar issues and like wearing flip flops, these are for you. Worth the price. When I received my first pair and walked around the house I was laughing out loud because they felt so good. My wife thought I had finally cracked and went crazy. That is how good they feel. Thank you SOLE for making these flip flops so I can continue to wear flip flops pain free.

Anne


Relief

I have planters, heel spurs, aquinis ankles, arthritis and arch problems. I have tried lots of different brands some help for a while but eventually the pain returns. However I discovered the Sole Sport Slides in 2011 and have been buying and wearing them ever since. I can wear for an entire day and have no pain. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fantastic!


HAPPY FEET - Best Sandals for Foot/Back

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


Trail ready!

The Signature DK response are perfect for my trail shoes. No heel pain and just the right amount of cushion.


I can run again!

Unable to enjoy running for two years due to heel pain. Different doctors, different orthotics no difference. I now have Signature EV Ultra in my runners and have trained for a few months. No more heel pain! Getting ready for the 30K race Around the Bay! Thank you Sole.


Working Soles

My new work boots made my heel pain flare up. So I replaced the custom orthotics with Softec Ultra and the pain is gone!


Great support for crossfit / workout shoes

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


Fantastic quality - useable in all sorts of boots/shoes

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

Best arch support ever

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


Sole is great

I have several Sole Footbeds and now the Navigate. A couple of years ago, I was limping around in Hawaii on a work trip and saw some Marines buying Footbeds in the exchange at Camp Smith. I asked one of them what they were and he said. "They're SOLEs and we all put them in our boots." So, I bought a pair, then later another pair, and then later more. Now I have them in all my shoes. My plantar fasciitis subsided fairly quickly. I'm a happy camper and recently completed a hike in the Grand Canyon of over 40 miles in a couple of days with no pain.


Great plantar faciitis relief:

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


Best. Flipflop. Ever!

I suffer from debilitating plantar fascia pain, can't go for a walk or ever walk barefoot around the house. No other flip flop ever fit. Not only are these comfortable, they have reduced my pain to near zero! I can go for walks and I wear them all day and my feet don't hurt. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! (please don't ever stop making these!)


Like walking on clouds

I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis for years and after a week of wearing these I am in love and can walk pain free.. will definitely invest in more. Would love to have more colors in the size 11...


A MUST FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Omg where have you been! I never leave reviews but for these it was a must. I have a very high arch and have been suffering with heel pain due to plantars fasciitis. I have tried everything. When you are in so much pain you will pay anything for relief. These are a must. I got them this morning did the heat molding and wore them most of the day. It's like a miracle, pain gone after 1 day. I will definitely get another pair or 2. I am going to try the flip flops next.

Carol Pascuzzi


Heaven!

I've had problems with my feet since my motorcycle accident 7 years ago and I have tried a dozen other brands of shoes and sandals for my chronically painful feet and legs. I just received my first pair of these Sole slides and it was love at first try. Not only are they comfortable, my feet as though they are positioned properly. I am NOT taking these off. Ever!


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!


the awesome products

I bought this product at Marks and they are amazing! I use to get back pain, also sore feet and these totally took my pain away. I really recommend this if you work on your feet or if you wear steel toe boots. I would say a really good buy for the price.


A Lifesaver

I love summer, except for one thing - I'd miss my SOLE footbeds because I was basically living in flip flops...and suffering from lower back pain because of it. Not anymore! Everything I love about the footbeds but in a flip flop. They need a short break-in period but once they did, I love them. Great product.


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.


SOLE changed my life!

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

Denise


Great!

I bought these sandals a few months ago to help with my plantar faciitis and they are great. I have since bought 2 pairs footbeds as well. For my work shoes and winter boots. I plan on buying more. They relieve the pain and if I don't wear them for even a few hours walking barefoot, I notice when I put them on again.I wear the sandals as slippers around the house. I recommend SOLE to everyone. I love them!!


Heel pain gone away!

Walked into an outdoor hiking and camping store with my son-in law and I found these little gems. I was experiencing heel pain for some time and knew it was likely my new shoes. Popped these heat-mouldable babies in and felt better right away. A few weeks later, the pain was all gone. Of course I tried all the other insoles one finds at the drug store and none did the job. I've worn these everyday for a year and I'll happily buy another pair of these fantastic insoles when they finally wear out. Wonderful product for sport and everyday walking.


Softec Ultra

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


Awesome!

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


Foot pains

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


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.

Cheryl Phillips


Hello my favorite SOLE people!

I was SO EXCITED to see that you made these, have been waiting and watching for something new exactly like this! I didn’t know you were making these in color so I purchases a “raven” pair a month ago and WOW.....are they ever fantastic, I never got one blister at all, which is amazing to me! I want to commend you on the quality and feel of these sandals, I do not get any plantar faschia pain when I wear my sandals and orthotic lifts, yours are the only design that help my feet, I’ve tried other orthotics and they are not as good as your brand. My plantar fashia pain is so bad that I need to wear your orthotics all the time, even at home in my slippers. THANK YOU from the bottom of my feet, I appreciate your products so very much!

Jennifer Muranyi


Thank you

Thank you Sole. This spring I dislocated my ankle and broke my leg. When the cast finally came off I found that I had developed severe pain in the bottom of my heal. The only shoes that I could wear were my Sole sign and my sport flip flops. I can't say thank you enough. Thank you Sole


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


Best Insoles Ever!

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

Bonnie


No Back Pain!

I cook for church ladies monthly. The church kitchen floor is hard tile. If I wear regular shoes my back starts hurting about an hour into cooking. If I wear my cork flips my back doesn't hurt at all even after 3 or more hours of cooking. I love these flips!

tanya


nice pair

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


Plantar fasciitis + Squash

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


AWESOME!!!

I spend 6-8 hours per day (sometimes 14-16) wearing Danner work boots and walking on a wide variety of terrain. I have used the SOLE insoles for over 2 years and my feet are always comfortable. I have had injuries in the past that led me to buy these insoles and now I recommend them to everyone I know that complains about their feet pain. I love the SOLE insoles. For the price compared to custom made orthotics you can't go wrong.


Perfect

I put these in my moccasins cuz I love those boots, but they are flat shoes, so I cant wear them without being in pain due to my low arch. I then put these in my flat tennis shoes I found for playing tennis. The difference in how I played because of these flat shoes, but with the support of the sole thin inserts is so huge!! These shoes have zero support, but with the inserts, I can feel the ground, am light on my feet & I now run and jump all over the court! The doubles groups I play with are amazed at my immediate progress in tennis. I say... It's the shoes!!... But only because of these sole inserts! Just fantastic!

Nicole Regimbald


Great Slide!

I am a runner and my arches get sore a lot. These are fantastic sport slides. My feet feel great in them. I got a pair for my husband too and he loves them. They have great support and are really comfy! Love them!


Help for arthritis

My rheumatologist told me to try SOLE inserts instead of custom orthotics, saying they were just as good and much less expensive. WOW!!! Just finished hiking Katahdin in Maine, 10 miles round trip and lots of up, my feet felt great, unusual for me. Thank you so much for creating a product that can help those of us with arthritis to be and stay active.

Pam Wise


Cured!

I Have suffered from plantar faciatis for years and the last few months before getting these shoes were the worst. I could barely walk and I had 4 cortisone shots without any relief. I was sceptical about how these would work-How could these "become" custom to my feet? Well they do! I wear them around the house as slippers and never go without them. Now I am completely pain free! I can wear heels again and it's just like I never had any issues. I love them and will wear them the rest of my life.


Best work shoes I've ever owned

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


Sole sport flips

These are the best slide on sport sandal I've ever worn and worth every penny. With a bad back and have always worn an orthodic,I am very pleased with the results.


Virginia from Princeton, Mass.

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


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!


Great Product

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

Kelly


I can walk!

I can walk! I have been suffering from plantar fasciitis for some time now and even after getting $500 orthotics I was still not improving. Given the lack of benefit I was observing from the one pair of orthotics, I couldn't justify spending that much money on extra sets for all of my shoes. When I saw that the Sole inserts were available for less than a tenth of what I paid, and they are in some ways better than the orthotics, I was able to outfit all of my shoes. It is early days right now, but i am finally walking with no pain ( Xm - fingers crossed!)


Perfect for my Derby Skates

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


FINALLY - After 25 Years.

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


great for kids too

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


Awesome

My back and feet were killing me.i work ten hour factory shifts on concrete floors night after night.my brother turned me on to your insoles after trying countless others.thank you for this awesome product.my back and feet no longer hurt me.


Very Comfortable

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


Great Flips!

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

Lloyd English


I could hear angels singing

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


Brilliant

Very happy I found this product! I've tried virtually every insole under the sun for my high arched and painful feet for around 5 years - NHS orthotics I've been made from several podiatrists have always been too hard, other off the shelf insoles I've had good cushioning but not enough support. After some extensive searching I bought some Softec Ultras and the Thin Sport insoles as they seemed to offer good custom support. I've been wearing them now for a few weeks and think I've finally found the insole I have been looking for. They offer great support but also have the right amount of flexibility so my feet don't feel like they are walking on rocks. I had to trim them down a bit at the front to fit in my shoes but now they fit amazingly. For the Ultra I need to take the factory insoles out, but in some shoes the thin sport fits well with the original insole still in. Offering different levels of thickness is a brilliant idea by sole so I can wear them in all different types of shoes. I just wore them as they came - I didn't bother with the heat moulding as they already seemed to be a good fit. The Ultra is almost perfect but one thing I think that could improve the insole is if they used a cushioning similar to the 'Lunarlon' memory foam cushioning material that I have in some of my Nike shoes - the best cushioning I've found. Hopefully day they will look into that! I would highly recommend Sole insoles to anyone, as they really are the most comfortable insoles I've used. Just before I got them was planning to go to a private podiatrist to see if I get some custom orthotics with good cushioning made - at the cost of 300+. Safe to say I am very glad I have found these as not only are they cheaper but I don't think the podiatirst would have come up with anything as good as them.


Would give more stars

I love these flip flops! They are the very best ever for people suffering from plantar facsiits, like me. Like a previous reviewer, my dog chewed up my first pair -- and then I found this site and bought two more. For the first time in months, I was able to get up in the AM and not cry out in pain. Granted I've also been doing some exercises and stretches to help, but with this sandal in combo -- I'm finally over the hump.


pain cured

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


Live in these, litterally

I found this shoe about 2 years ago when they went on sale at a local Walk/Run Store....ooooh and they are the best ever! I have rheumatoid arthritis as well as plantar fasciitis; needing a metatarsal support pad....I think they cover it. I wear them around house in winter as slippers, actually have hard time walking without them as they support my feet correctly, and wear them pretty much 24/7 in the summer as the tan lines on my feet shows...lol


AHHHH

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

Ryan Schweitzer


I owe you so much

I have been living with horrible plantar fasciitis for over a year now. I tried just about every insole I could get my hands on with no results. Being an Infantryman in the Army I come across a lot of gimmicks and plenty of people looking to take our money. One day I went into the clothing and sales on Fort Bliss and I saw a rack of these Sole Softec Response Moldable Footbeds. A salesperson was doing a bit of a demo showing how easy these insoles are to mold and how firm the arch support was. I read the directions and figured even I can't mess this up. A few minutes of trimming and a few minutes in the oven and in the boots they went. I have been pain free every day since. As I look back at all of the money I wasted on insoles, night splints and all of the time spent suffering with horrible pain, I honestly thought I would suffer for the rest of my life. Thank you so much for making a quality product that honestly saved my career and gave me life back. If there is anything that I can do for your company other than telling everyone I can think of about your product please let me know. I owe you so much.


No More Shin Splints

I'm a football referee and I used to get terrible shin splints. During a game one of the athletic trainers could see that I was hobbling a bit and was in pain so he asked what the problem was, after explaining how I get very painful shin splints he told me about Sole inserts. I got my first pair 2 years ago, which I still use to this day, and haven't had even a hint of shin splints since. My Soles have also dramatically improved my lower back pain. I can't rave enough about Soles. I love them and will NEVER be without them again. Thank you Soles!


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 SANDAL FOR PF

Having PF for over 8 years, this is the only sandal I have been able to wear. I first got them in a steel blue/gray. But now the only colors available in size 11 are black or brown. Please, Please make more colors for size 11's!! I know I will buy them!


Post Back Surgery Pain-Free

These SOLE footbeds are absolutely amazing! I have had 3 back surgeries in the past 5 years, the 3rd being a fusion, and my physical therapist recommended these footbeds and your products. This spring after healing from my fusion, I bought these footbeds and 2 pair of flips...one casual, one sport. I LOVE all of your products and my back is staying strong. I used to have custom-fit orthotics years ago which cost $350. I would never know the difference between those and these. My arches usually fall upon wearing regular shoes or flip flops, but these footbeds with a wonderful arch support have kept that from happening since the day I began using them!!!! Thank you, SOLE!!!!!!!!


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.


Relief

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

Your product is a miracle!

Your product is a god send. I'm a 54 year old woman who loves to walk and despite paying over $1000.00 for two pairs of custom made orthotics, they stopped working after 6 months. Not only did they stop working but they were causing unbearable aching and throbbing even when I wasn't mobile. The "expert" said there was nothing wrong with them. It was to the point where I couldn't walk around a grocery store without pain. I thought I was going to end up riding one of those scooters. When I removed the orthotics, the aching stopped. But my feet were still so sore when I walked anywhere - even just around the house. In desperation, I tried your insoles. Minutes later, I went for a 1 km walk. And I haven't stopped since. I have quite a high instep so your insoles give me the support I need. I have since ordered another pair, plus three pairs of flip flops and a pair of sliders. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Your product is a MIRACLE!!!

I have flat feet which has resulted in plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis. SOLE footbeds along with brooks dyad sneakers has relieved pain, allowed me to continue to run, and saved me from surgery.

so great

I bought these in purple after I read the reviews. I have a high arch and nothing but my custom orthotics give me this much support. The first day I wore them I was not that impressed but by the third day, they molded to my feet and I really do look forward to them on. I wear them out shopping or running errands, as well as around the house. I love them! I am going to get another pair. Try them if you have back pain or your feet hurt after being on your feet all day. You will get hooked!


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..


Get These

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

best shoes

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


Love, Love, LOVE These!!

These are the best pair of shoes I have EVER owned! I have a bad back and ankles that have been broken/sprained numerous times. These SOLE Flips (bought with a Groupon) were the best money I have ever spent! I even got a pair for my husband and he loves his too! My Chiropractor was even asking me about them since she was the one who suggested I look into an orthopedic-type flip. I never want to take these off! If you could make a dress shoe that fits as well as these and as comfortable, I'd get one in every color!


Absolutely Fantastic!!!

I was hobbling with plantar fasciitis. When diagnosed, my doctor told me to go get running shoes with orthodics. At the shoe store I was shown these flips..... I was able to walk without pain immediately! Can't say that about the running shoes with the orthodics. I have purchased 3 pairs of these flips and wish I could find more. Why the shortage?


Best Insoles ever

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


excellent!

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

I was able to walk for hours using the sole footbeds

I do not know the mechanism of action however the following may be relevant.30 years ago I had surgery on my forefoot with removal of 2 toes. I believe the stability of my transverse arch and longitudinal arch was compromised minimally. With time and perhaps a slight weight increase the collapse of both of these arches occurred . The sole insole has helped to restore the arches .. By trial and error I have learned that using boot type shoes I can further stabilise the ankle joint, However this alone is not adequate to relieve my pain. Prior to using the sole footbeds I was often unable to walk for long distances on flat concrete without moderate or worse pain. I have just returned after visiting 3 European cities with most of the walking surfaces cobblestones. I was able to walk for hours using the sole footbeds. (particularly the Ultra products.) As a semiretired academic surgeon who has practised surgery for over 35 years I have conclude in the treatment of my patients that any procedure or technique that works is worth pursuing if there is no risk of worsening a condition even if the exact mechanism of action is not known. I believe the Sole footbeds meet this criteria! Thank you very much.


Good Stuff

I have been using Your Sole products for about 2 years now. The insoles are at least as good as the ones I had custom made when I was first diagnosed with plantar fasciatus and gait issues. The ultra softec footbeds are great to run in and when you have finished the flip flops are great to relax in. In fact it is great that I can now wear flip flops and not end up crippled by pain as ordinary ones seem to do to me after only short period of wear. I have now bought my first pair of sports socks to see if they are as good as the other products.


Best sandals of all time.

I bought the sport flips last summer, and they have been the best, most comfortable footwear I own. I can walk long distance in them without pain (and this from someone who has has plantar fascitis). Very comfortable after a run, around the house, or everyday use.

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.

They are the ultimate insert for my falling arches

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


insert perfection

I've tried so many custom orthotics - all failures. They were either too hard, they fell apart, or they actually bruised varying feet bones due to imperfect fit. How many times do you return to the podiatrist before you give up? Then I tried Sole's footbeds. The whole family does. I won't wear a shoe without them. My feet problems don't hurt anymore and I can walk for miles without pain - first time in many years. I have neuromas, tendonitis from multiple sprains and twists, and metatarsal tenderness and all of them, while not completely gone, do not cause me constant pain anymore. What an incredible relief. Having tried another brand's insert, which was okay, a tad cheaper, it did not compare to the support of Sole's. I am very relieved to have found them.


NO MORE BACK PAIN

Sixty-two years ago I was born with flat feet so I've always needed arch support. All the products that I tried, over the years offered varying degrees of service life with a max of say... 3-months! I bought my 1st pair of SOLE's over a year ago. Within hours of using this product, sciatica and low back pain disapeared! Whats-more? I get 3-times more service life out of my footwear AND the original pair of SOLE's are still in service! I love these things...they have saved me $$$ too.

Really didn't like them

I got one of each type of sock from Sole when I bought my footbeds. The insoles are fantastic! But this review is about the socks. I wear these socks mostly for going running and playing basketball or soccer. I found the non-dual layer sock to be perfect - no blisters, very comfortable, I love it and will order more. I found the dual-layer to be more annoying than anything. I couldn't ever get the two layers to match up nicely after the first time (before washing) and it was always a pain to put the socks on. And if you want to adjust your shoes, you need to start the whole process over. They aren't too pricey, so I'd recommend doing what I did: First order one of each type of sock and see what you like. I threw this pair away and now I just wear the traditional single layer one.

You are doing something very right

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

Now I have them for all my shoes

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

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

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

My dogs were screaming by the end of the day

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

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

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


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.

Outstanding

The Exhale is a great fit, warm and gives you a slipper and outdoor shoe all in one. Having plantar fasciitis and pronation it is important to have a good custom fit. The Sole people do it with precision.

I have been a happy customer for about five years now

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

For the last two years every practice and game has been a nightmare

I have really extreme overpronation and low arches and live a very active lifestyle. I play tennis and football for my college and for the last two years every practice and game has been a nightmare. I get really bad shin splints and for as long as I can remember Ive had to take 4 or 5 ibuprofen just to make it through practice and even then I was in pain. I tried these footbeds over my medical orthodics and miraculously have no pain almost instantly! These things are great and have me saying goodbye to the podiatrist and looking forward to practice!


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 will keep me jogging on!

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

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.

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

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

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

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


Awesome

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


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.

I'm ecstatic about the results

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

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

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

They are truly amazing sandals

I'm almost 8 months pregnant but I can wear my sole flips all day without getting sore feet. That's a first! I'd thought sore feet were just another one of the inevitable symptoms of pregnancy. I've been wearing my sole flips everywhere ever since I got them and my feet are totally pain free. They are truly amazing sandals and I would recommend them to anyone!


Ready to RUN

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


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.

Marcos L.


they have helped tremendously

I sware by these insoles. For the last nine months, I have been suffering with heel pain - plantar fasciitis. I tried several different insoles, even custom orthotics and the best pain relief I could get is by wearing the DK Insoles. While I won't say they have "cured" my problem, they have helped tremendously. None of the other insoles gave me the deep heel cup or the fit and comfort of your product. Thanks SOLE! You have a loyal customer for life.


Thank you

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

No pain just comfort

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


Good for tight-fitting lightweight shoes

These thin soles are great for lightweight, low volume shoes like my Nike Skylons. They don't take up too much space, yet provide great support for my plantar fascitis.


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.


Another PT review

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


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).

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

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


The ONLY Flip-Flip if You've had Plantar Faschitis!

Like many runners out there, I developed plantar fasciitis and was stuck wearing only my sneakers with insoles for months. After finally "recovering" (although I believe this is a chronic condition and once you get PF, you are prone for reoccurence), these flip-flops were an AMAZING new option for me that provided support, structure, and comfort. If you've ever had arch problems, you will know how terrible ballet flats and normal flip-flops are for your feet. Seriously try these flip-flops and your arches will thank you!


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.


LOVE these flip flops

I've been looking for flip flops that offer support but is still stylish to help with my PF problems. I am thrilled to have found these shoes! They make my feet feel great and I can wear them without any pain! Thank you for making something so cute and comfortable!!

They did what they were supposed to do

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


BETTER THAN PHYSICAL THERAPY?

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


Worth every penny

Had a pair of these last year and lived in them constantly throughout the summer. I used to get arch pain in ordinary flip flops but this totally took that pain away. As soon as they have my size in stock in the colour that I want I will be purchasing another pair for this year.

Happy to say they were love at first fit

I’ve been using Sole brand orthotics to correct my functional hallux limitus with associated exostosis (in other words – a painful bunion and flat feet). I’ve tried a variety of orthotics (orthopaedic insoles that go in the shoes to correct poor alignment) with varying success. A couple of expensive custom-made pairs – one from a physiotherapist and the other a biomechanical podiatrist – were both failures for me. I then tried a pair of Tulis but they weren’t quite right. I then was given a pair of Superfeet which I liked even more. I think this is a good brand for many people. And then along came Sole and another sample for me to try. Happy to say they were love at first fit. The Sole orthotics have a slim fit range which fit nicely into all of my shoes (of course they’re all roomy MBTs with removeable insoles which helps). Ideally, have them fit by a physiotherapist or podiatrist who can put the feet in the right position. In my case, I’ve been able to use them without the molding but probably would have an even better result with it. So now I carry Sole orthotics in my physiotherapy practice. For more complex biomechanical problems, I tend to send my patients to a local podiatrist.

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.

The difference was night and day

The last few months, I've been experiencing the worst shin splints ever and recently started having plantar fasciitis every time I played basketball. I tried everything and my physio said I need to get orthos because my feet poronate too much. I didn't want to spend $400 so I tried out Superfeet, spenco etc until someone recommended soles. I just played my first game last week with the ultra softec and the difference was night and day. Where as I would want to get off every two minutes, this time i felt like I could play forever. Thank you SOLE.

The SOLE inserts far exceeded my expectations

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

I will be a customer for life

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


Thanks to these, I'm finally healing

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


I like 'em!

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

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

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

I first purchased these for my snowboarding boots

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

Zac


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!

Matt


I am hooked

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

My legs feel fine and I can run even more

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


Plantar Fasciitis

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

Brad


My foot pain has almost completely disappeared

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

The best thing I bought myself in years

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

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

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

I was suffering from Morton's Neuroma

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

The sole sandals have really helped

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


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

I desparately needed some lasting and quality support

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

Joni


I just love the sandals

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

Unknown


They make my feet feel a lot better

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

Tina


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

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

Mike


I thought my days of being active were over

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


Great investment

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

David


His feet feel much better

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

Rich Bradley


WOW!!

I have always been a bit skeptical of reviews that appear for product, but if you have been like me and purchased expensive custom orthodics for plantar fascitis, etc., go no further. These are the best, especially for the money. If there was a ten star designation I would give them it.

Mary


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

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

Absolutely love them

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

Chris


I was at first very skeptical. Not any more

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

Mike Graziano


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

5 Star Insoles

I have suffered from Shin Splints for around two years on and off and have tried just about everything to get rid of them, physio treatment, resting and purchasing expensive custom made orthotics (that give me blisters). I refused to stop playing football at only 25. I stumbled upon these on the internet and after purchasing the insole I find that they offer the same support as the custom made orthotics if not better for a fraction of the price. Used these for the second time last night in my first league match and thankfully no blisters and no shin pain. Hopefully the end of my shin splints! Many Thanks to everyone at Sole for the fantastic insoles.

I've noticed major improvements in my feet

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

Woodworker (Las Vegas)


Imagine my surprise when the pain in my back went away after just a week or two of using your insoles

I'm a woodworker, in fact, I just started a woodworking school here in Las Vegas. That means I'm in steel-toed boots, walking around on concrete floors, for much of my day. I've had problems with my back when I awake each morning for years. As the shoes I'm wearing get older and the soles wear, this pain gets worse. My partner suggested I try your insoles in my work boots. Wow! Imagine my surprise when the pain in my back went away after just a week or two of using your insoles in my shoes. I've experienced that pain for years, and just thought it came from having a "bad" back. Now I realize it originated from something completely different.

Mike


Have definitely improved my cycling

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

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

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


Painfree

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


Awesome!!

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

Matt


These sandals work better than anything I have tried before

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


fantastic

These are by far the best pair of flips or shoes i've ever owned. I tore my plantar, and walking has been painful ever since. However wearing these shoes, i can walk without pain! Love them Love them Love them. Can't wait to buy another pair in a different color!


Better than custom

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

Best $$ spent on flip flop sandals to date

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


Na I can't believe it

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


Sole footbeds

my fisrt Sole footbeds is approx. 3years old, since that time I put Sole footbeds in every boot for my sports activies- alpineturing, mountain runnig. I especially apreciated them in hard plastic boot, last 3 years I dont feel the pain sole even after 8-12 hour of skiing and climbing, I'm very satisfied and recomend Sole for my friends in our community.

Robert Chatillion


I will never go back to flat sandals again

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


Oh my word, lovely flips!

I ran the London Marathon a few weeks ago, and promptly placed my feet into a pair of cheap flip flops. That, was a huge mistake that caused me extreme anguish, and a flash back to the shin splits and PF I experienced during last summers running season. The only regret I have is that I didn't buy the Sole flips sooner, and have them to wear after the London Marathon. Thank you for making such a comfortable flip that I can wear all day, and not take away from my summer of running.


I can wear sandals again!

I have flat feet, so would be in pain for days if I wore any type of sandals or flipflops. Always use the Your Sole inserts in my shoes. Now I can wear them all the time - PAIN FREE! Worth every cent! I have two pairs now....more to follow too!


Best Footbed on the Market!!

I am a Retired US Army veteran and Volunteer Firefighter/EMT-Basic and I suffered with Plantar Fasciitis for many years. I purchased a set of Spenco moldable insoles and they didn't work for beans!! While on a shopping trip to Mt. Home AFB I found these SOLE footbeds, I took them home popped them in the oven and fitted them for my feet. I am now pain free. Just like "American Express" I don't leave home without them!! These are The Best Footbeds on the Market!!


fantastic product

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


Saved My Vacation!

I had used the sport soles for a couple of years and was already a firm convert to Sole. With a vacation in the Mediterranean looming, I saw that Sole was coming out with their first sandals! I was really excited, as I wasn't looking forward to having to wear tennis shoes all the time on holiday. I had given up the thought of ever having sandals (much less flip-flops) that could give me the support I need to alleviate the plantar faciatis and painful neuromas I have in both feet. The Flips weren't even shipping yet, but I paid for my pair. As the vacation got closer I was really worried that I wouldn't get them in time, so I sent an email. Imagine my surprise when I received a call saying that they would overnite them to me right away! I'm really happy to say that my vacation was amazing, and I know it wouldn't have been as carefree had it not been for my Sole Flips. LOVE THEM! (Ordering my 2nd pair!)


Miracle Cure!

I developed plantar fasciitis within days of moving into our new house that has a lot of tile flooring. The doctor told me I needed to be wearing shoes in the house, so I put my Sole sandals on, and within minutes, the pain went completely away! The pain had been quite severe, to the point of limping around the house, and it went away immediately, and has not returned! These sandals are a must-have for anyone with tile floors. They are worth every penny!! Thank-you!! I cannot say enough about how thrilled I am with them. They are my "miracle cure!"

Very painful case of Plantar Fasciitis

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

I can not say enough good about sole footbeds. I am 41 and a triathlete. At my age my body has overcome some significant aches and pains from many miles of running. I have been using Sole footbeds for four years now and feel not problems from my feet on up which is a big change from previous years. I did purchase these footbeds with the ipod carrier and sadly to say I did not like them. I could feel the difference in the footbed with the port for the gadget and it was annoying. I returned them and traded them in for the signature series and am again very pleased. I think it is best to leave the gadgets out of your shoes however it was a good concept.


Great for Work

I purchased the insoles for my work boots as I have had terrible pain in my feet. I work in manufacturing and walk on concrete floors for approimately 50 hrs a week. These insoles have virtually eliminated the pain. My history says the insoles maintained their cushioning for about 6-8 months and the arch never dropped.

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

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

Couldn't Skate Without Them

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


Awesome

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

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


Great support and cushioning

Last year, after over a 10 year break, I started training and racing in triathlons again. I developed calf pain after running a half marathon and was not able to fully rehab teh injury for over 2 years, despite being a physical therapist myself and seeing several sports medicine and orthopedic specialists. Within one week of use, the support and cushioning of the DK orthotics was apparent and my discomfot began to decrease. I ahve worked with several different orthotics/insoles over my physical therapy career and I do not hesitate to recommend SOLE products to my clients. Darren Beilstein, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT

Huge difference after one week

I am very pleased with my SOLE purchase. My right heal was really beginning to be a problem. I bought two pair of SOLE footbeds and wear one in my work shoes and the other in my running/walking shoes and there was a huge difference after one week.

Working on Concrete Floors

I've had feet problems for years. I found your product locally and had been using them for a while. But with this place going out of business I thought I was sunk. I work on concrete floors all day long and was at a point of not being able to work much longer because of the pain. I found the guys home address and called him at home. He told me of the web site. And I'll keep on buying this product. Please don't change anything. With the soles and exercise I'm still going strong. Thanks.

Richard


The sole product I bought has worked wonders

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

Nicole


Far Exceeded my Expectations

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

Twelve Hour Days

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

Recommended to help with lower extremity problems

I'm a physical therapist and have made orthotics in the past, your product is very good and I recommend them to most of my patients with lower extremity problems.

The DKs are Awesome

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

Running Comfortably

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

Cheryl Peterson


Thank you for such an incredible product

I was spending $40.00 per vist to the chriopractor once a week before I got my sole insoles. I have not been in 3 months now. I wear them in every shoe that I can, and I have the flip flops for the summer. Thank you for such an incredible product.

Carol


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.

Kristina


My feet were happier than they had ever been before

I am an electrician. I had a hard time finding work boots that were comfortable. I was shopping at a Redwing store and the employee suggested I try your insoles (redwing branded) instead of new boots. I put them in, without warming and fitting, and my feet were happier than they had ever been before. I have had those insoles for about 3 years now, and I was sick of changing them from one pair of shoes to another so I went to order more and found out that they are actually your product and so I ordered 3 pairs directly from you, so I can put them in a variety of shoes. When I don't have your insoles in, my feet get sore quickly.


Love them!

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

Jessica


No further issues with footpain

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


Excellent

I started with the footbeds. I researched online to see what nurses and people who stood for along time at their job liked as far as support. This is how I found the footbeds. Amazing! I stand 8 hours at my job. My heels used to get so painful, I couldn't stand on them. These footbeds made the difference. I have worn the same pair for a year now and thought they would "flatten" out after time, but they haven't. I ordered myself and my husband the sandals to try. I usually don't like the piece between the toes. Surprisingly, I don't notice that piece with these sandals. Same wonderful support as the footbeds. My husband will no longer wear any other sandal, only the Sole sandals. He was reluctant about the price of them, but now that he's worn them...no other sandal will do! Be prepared to be spoiled and not want anything else on your feet.


Army boots and plantar fasciitis

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

Juliet Farmer


I've already sent several friends your way

Your insoles have allowed me to run pain-free. Apparently the insoles I used to use didn't cut it and when I saw a podiatrist I found out why: unusually high arches. He suggested two things, custom insoles or (the next best thing) your insoles. I ordered yours, they came several days later, and I was off and running! I've already sent several friends your way...Thank You.

Sara


No IT band pain!

I wanted to let you that I got these orthodics because of serious IT band friction syndrome. Prescription orthodics were just way out of my price range , and SOLE footbeds were recommended to me. Well, I put them to the ultimate test this past Sunday, running the Mardi Gras Marathon with the. I had NO IT band pain! It was fantastic! Thanks for your great product. I was talking about them with runner throughout the whole course, and I got an email today from one of them saying she had placed here order already.

Eric Silden


Run longer and pain free

I now run longer and pain free thanks to SOLE Custom Footbeds.

Karen M


Your feet and legs will thank you

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

John W. Norris


I am now pain free once again

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

Geoff Prescott


The sense of relief was virtually immediate

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

Jeanne Doherty


SOLE really excels!

My husband had been having heel pain while running and had tried several different types of heel pads, gel soles, but had not had relief from the pain. Then another friend told us about SOLE, and we immediately ordered a pair. He noticed a big difference right away, and was so improved after a couple of weeks, that he ran in the St. Patrick's Day 10K here in D.C. and was really pleased with how he felt afterwards. I can't thank SOLE enough for helping him stay on track with his goal. He was ready to stop running, and now he's closer to accomplishing his dream of running a marathon next year. From the ease of using your website to the quality of the product, to follow-up service you provide, SOLE really excels!

Thanks for introducing a great product

I'll be 45 in a few weeks. I began running when I was 20. Like many, running has become my focus, obsession, daily routine. I currently have a 13 year streaking going of not missing a day. A few (20 - 30) of those runs were 3 miles or less due to injury/sickness, having to get my run in before an early morning flight, or dangerous weather (electrical/hail storm or -25 temps with -50 wind-chill) Most of my weeks average 45-55 miles a week. Most of these miles I run alone. I go at different times of the day due to work, travel, family events or pace, since I train at a 7:15 pace and most of my friends average 8:30 - 9:00's. I get sore if I run too often at a pace other than my own. Now you're wondering why I'm boring you with the details of my running obsession. 2003 was a difficult injury year for me. I pulled my left hamstring which resulted in aches and pains all winter. Later that summer, I strained my left thigh and soon after that I sprained my left ankle on acorns in the dark. I continued to run every day, but I felt achy and out of balance. I had been using Spenco insoles for years and decided maybe it was time for orthotics. I had stopped into Runner's Edge in St. Paul, Minnesota, and noticed your product. The feedback from the salesperson was that he had tried Sole insoles and they were great. I knew him for a while and I felt I could rely on what he said. I decided to give them a try for $40 before spending $100's on orthotics. After all, I still need to keep my streak going and the aches and pains were making it hard to get motivated. Well, needless to say, I've been using them since October '03 and I'm feeling better than I have in years. I feel more balanced and my aches are now the result of hillwork or increased distance changes! I've worn them all winter and into a second pair of shoes and they still feel good! I'm hoping to get back to my 43:00 - 44:00 - 10K times this spring (if aging the additional year doesn't slow me permanently!). Your insoles have given new life to my running and I am looking forward to a much better summer than last summer! Thanks for introducing a great product! Best wishes for a long and prosperous business for you!

I have been running pain free ever since

I am a ultrarunner and after trying just about every footbed made my search was over after being introduced to Sole ultra softec custom footbeds in 2005. I have been running pain free ever since. Sole footbeds provide the perfect combination of cushioning, arch support and excellent stability due to the low heel cup. A very durable and well designed product.

SOLE results in less fatigue

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

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.

Kipp Carver


I have recommended SOLE footbeds to several of my customers

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

Ted McGreer


I've sold a pile of sandals

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

Martha B


I love my SOLEs

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

Mike Kowalski


You have a great product

Because of a severe case of Plantar Fasciitis in 1989, I began wearing custom orthotics made by Dr. Glickman in Michigan. These are made out of a very stiff plastic material. These devices allowed me to continue to run 20-50 miles a week since 1990. During this time I completed 7 marathons including the 100th Boston. In 1999 I began look for an over the counter orthotics that would provide the same degree of protection and be more comfortable. I tried the Sorbothane full shoe insert and the SOF Flow full shoe insert with the arch support. Both were comfortable but neither provided me with the arch support I needed to run 20-35 miles a week pain free. Last November I purchased my first pair of SOLE Custom Footbeds and they have provided me the comfort and support I need to continue running pain free. From now on, any time I purchase a pair of running shoes, I will also be replacing the insert with the SOLE Custom Footbeds. This is the best my feet have felt since the mid 1980's.You have a great product that I would recommend to all my running friends.

John C. Bruner


Your footbeds have been helpful in relieving the pain from walking

I have been using your Sole Custom Footbeds since I got a free pair at the Olympic Oval. While refereeing indoor soccer this past season I developed plantar fasciitis. Your footbeds have been helpful in relieving the pain from walking. I put them in my soccer shoes and also sandals. And, I am using them in my outdoor soccer shoes. Also, while serving as a lap recorder for speed skating, I have to spend long hours standing on the ice. My sorels do not have good arch support and your footpads have enabled me to stand more comfortably in my sorels. Thank you!

Melanie Elliott


I expect to become a continued customer

I already have a pair of the SOLE Softec Ultra, which has helped me with painful plantar fascitis and a broken big toe. I just ordered the SOLE Softec Regular footbeds. I expect to become a continued customer and will definitely share info on your product with my friends and family. Thank you!

Rudy Martini


After heat molding, the footbeds fit my feet perfectly

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

Christine Hassard


SOLE has made a huge difference

I was recently diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and the SOLE has made a huge difference in the comfort & pain level. Thanks! I now have happy feet.

Rob Allen


I wish I had found these sooner

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

Michael L. Schultz, M.D.


I recommend SOLE to my patients

I am a Family Physician and a runner. I was impaired from running because of plantar fasciitis after my last marathon nearly 18 months ago. I was provided with a pair or your SOLE Softec Ultra insoles by a local running shoe store. This product is truly phenomenal and allowed my return to running after all those months of pain. As a result I have now purchased an additional set so that I can have one pair at home and one at my cottage. Even though the fasciitis since has resolved, my running is so much more comfortable with these insoles, that I will continue to use them indefinitely. Moreover, I have now incorporated recommending this product to my patients that suffer from similar problems.

Amanda Thalji


I recommend them to everyone I know

I love SOLE footbeds! I have been battling plantar fascitits for some time and they have helped tremendously! After wearing the SOLE Softec Ultra footbeds inside of my gym shoes for four months I am now pain and symptom free. My parents own a restaurant and are on their feet all day so I ordered a pair for my mother and father. They too have experienced a great reduction in their leg and back pain. In fact, they are such big fans of the product, that they had me order another pair for one of their employees. I recommend them to everyone I know.

Jeremy Rhoten


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.

Cheryl Black


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

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

Steve Currie


I guess I just have to abandon the prescription orthotics

So yesterday, I went out to play, walking, 18 holes of golf. I wore my best golf shoes with the $275 prescription orthotics obtained through our podiatrist. By the 14th hole, the beginnings of my frequent plantar fasciitis pain began, and by the end of the round -- and for the rest of the day, I was quite uncomfortable. So today, I went back out for another round. I wore my back-up shoes with my Sole Slim Sport footbeds. From the first hole they felt much more comfortable. And the comfort lasted the entire round. This is a repeat experience, and I guess I just have to abandon the prescription orthotics. They just don't do the job as well as the Soles. Thanks for a great product!

Bobby G. Tindal


A great product that can be worn out of the box

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

Jeff Wilkinson


I have used a lot of boot inserts both military and civilian. These are the best.

Last year at the age of 50 I rejoined the active military reserves. Prior to that time my left heel had occasionally been painful. Once I increased my exercise program it became much worse. The diagnosis was plantar fasciitis. Orthotics were suggested at a cost of $400 plus. Before purchasing the orthotics I happened to be in an AAFES (military) store. They had a display of SOLE inserts. The size nines were sold out indicating to me that they must work reasonably well. The manager said they could not keep them in stock. I don't live near a military post so I looked on line to learn more and then contacted the company directly. Everyone I have interacted with has been fantastic. I ordered a couple pair of the Ultra SOFTEC and put them in my combat boots and running shoes. Typically this kind of injury can take up to a year to correct. Since going barefoot was no longer an option I also found some foam footwear with arch support to use indoors during the summer. It has been about a year and I am now pain free. Winter is here again and I am purchasing more to outfit all my winter boots and indoor shoes. The slim version works great in dress shoes. I have used a lot of boot inserts both military and civilian. These are the best.

SOLE has changed my feet forever

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

Angela Shaw


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

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

I can stand and walk without crying or pain

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

We can now do things that involve walking

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

I have even started running again because of your product

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

I absolutely love my footbeds

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

I've always loved to dance

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

These insoles are better than sex

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

I really love these insoles

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

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

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

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

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

We use a lot less Motrin now!

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

I am very pleased with my SOLE footbeds

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

My feet would hurt so bad that I could hardly walk

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

My golf game has improved

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

MG Yukich


Your product has cured me

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

My foot doctor recommended your footbeds

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

Thank you so much for this product

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

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

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

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.

I'm hooked

I have worn Superfeet for years in all my shoes. After trying your product for three days, my incipient plantar faciaitis pain literally disappeared. I substituted a brand new superfeet bed in for a few hours today, and the pain returned immediately. I'm hooked.

Carolyn Larson


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!

Daniel Govern


They work fantastic

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

Margaret Bausack


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

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

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

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

Heath


I will not have a pair of boots without them again

I work 12 hour shifts standing on concrete and was having heel pain everyday. This was eliminated within 24 hours of placing the new SOLE insoles in my boots. I am so glad I ordered your product when I did. I will not have a pair of boots without them again.

A year ago my feet looked like a war zone.

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

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.

Wish we would have bought two pairs!

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

This product is outstanding

Flat arches were causing alot of pain especially when walking around the house in my bare feet. With the new sandals I can even stand in the kitchen and cook for long periods of time on a hard floor with no pain. This product is outstanding and I have recommended it to my physical therapist for some of his patients to try.

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.

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

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

They are just like a second skin

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

They are now the ONLY sandals I wear

Having pain in my inner shin area above my ankle's when wearing traditional style 'flip flops' esp after long runs. Was virtually eliminated after my Sole purchase. They are now the ONLY sandals I wear.

I have been running for 5 days a week again without any debilitating pain

I was recently diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis (age 40), along with a sharp pain under and behind the big toe knuckle for the last 3 years that my doctor could not find a reason for. With your inserts I have been running for 5 days a week again without any debilitating pain. Thanks for the great product!
