Best flips ever!

Best flips ever! I have been wearing these flips for several years and could not imagine living without them. They have changed my life. I suffer from chronic plantar fasciitis and fibromyalgia. They really help to relieve pain in my feet and allow me too actually go for a walk! I wear them all day, every day. They are resistant and I love the fact that they are so eco friendly. I highly recommend them.

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!


She loves them

Less morning pain and all day comfort


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.


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.


Exceptional

I've been using these for over years which has allowed me to enjoy pain free 15k daily hill hikes

Best Flip for Support and Stability

I was diagnosed with mild planter fasciitis back in 2013, SOLE was introduced to me by my podiatrist. I bought by first pair back in 2014 and since then I only buy flips from SOLE. This flip-flop is magic, the stability and support you get from these flips is unparalleled. Not only it saves you from the high arch pain but the stability and comfort gives you so much confidence while walking. I would eyes closed recommend the flip-flops from this company, sharing my 8 years of experience, I have multiple pairs of SOLE flips. With these flips always go one size down if you are 7.5 or 8.5 or 9.5. I am size 7.5 and i always order size 7.


Best foot beds on the market!!

I have been wearing these foot beds since it got too cold for my sandals. They continue to provide me with the perfect support and have eliminated all foot ankle and knee pains. A must to try before spending hundreds on orthotics that did nothing for me!


Really pleased

I've been using these insoles for a few weeks now in my work shoes. They're great! I'm on my feet for at least 8 hours every shift, with a lot of walking. No more foot or hip pain. I highly recommend them.


Good quality, firm support where needed

I am very athletic and have a very high arch, along with plantar fasciitis and rheumatoid arthritis. These footbeds provide firm support where needed. Haven't had any pain or cramping since I started using them. Highly recommend to anyone with foot pain to try these.


Terrific foot support!

I have "SOLE" inserts in most of my footwear/shoes. They have solved my arch/foot problems! I love the fit and comfort that "SOLE" products provide and I can again walk, hike and walk 18 holes of golf without pain or discomfort. I also love the variety of products available and I really like the value/cost of the "SOLE" products! I had previously tried many different arch support products but I am now sold on "SOLE"!


Best Ones Out There

I’ve had these sort of soles for years now. I usually bought them at Marks but they stopped carrying them. So I tried different ones only to have worse back problems. Luckily, I found this site where they sell them. Before these footbeds I would constantly walk in pain from my flat feet and would need to see my chiropractor almost weekly. If it wasn’t for SOLE I’d be walking barefoot.


Best foots beds for the money

I’ve been wearing these in my work boots, these foot beds have stopped my back and knee pains while I’m at work for 12 hrs. I bought more and now have them in my hiking boots.


Performance Medium with Met Pad

I've used these for about a month and they really are very comfortable and I have no foot pain.


Greatly reduced my foot pain

I noticed that my big toe pain caused by walking eighteen holes was greatly reduced. My feet generally feel better. Strongly recommend this product!

Knee savers

I have very flat feet and spend a lot of time in work boots. Replaced the original insoles that came with my everyday boots with the Work Medium SOLE and I haven’t had knee pain in weeks.


Real quality, unique design, subpar durability?

These were purchased to help with plantar fasciitis pain and right when I received them I knew they were different from any other insole I'd used before. These insoles have very prominent sections of padding that provide support to portions of your foot that would only be barely touched by most other mainstream insoles, especially along the arch and ball of foot. The design of these is very appealing and unique, and the cork material is very satisfying to the eyes and feet! I would definitely recommend these to people looking for more comfort or dealing with pain, as these really helped me. The only issue I have is that after about a week or two, the heel portion, which was initially nicely padded, of the insole compressed down to almost flat, leaving the heel mostly unprotected from impact. The cork material might contribute to this but I also tend to put extreme pressure on my heels. I got these on clearance but next time I'd go for the Active models as they're said to be more durable. But if you have even pressure distribution, definitely check these out!


Excellent work shoe

I’ve been wearing these for years due to plantar fasciitis Great arch support No more foot pain thanks to my soles. Runs about 1/2 size small-normally wear 7.5 and the 8 fits perfectly


Relieved my pain

Had tried adding key pads to other inserts. Never fit or felt as good as these do. Relieved pain on bottom of feet and along top of toes.


Good footbeds

I have a fallen arch and these have improved the pain in my foot.


They work for me

Tried one pair as recommended by a friend. Took a while getting used to them as expected. Happy with relief of pain while wearing the pads. Bought a few more pair and likely getting a few more.


Excellent footbeds

I have metatarsalgia and was prescribed orthotics which were hugely expensive. I find these just as effective and much more affordable. I have them in all my shoes now - for biking, skiing , running, hiking, and everyday wear. It is so good to be able to do all my regular activities again without painful feet.

Outstanding flip flops

I’ve had nagging plantar fasciitis for months. I recently took a trip to San Diego and wore these flip flops the entire time (which involved 34 miles of walking over 3 days). I had zero pain and very happy feet.


So comfortable!

I felt pain relief and greater foot stability after installing these in my new shoes, which are wide width.


Best Insoles for Flat Feet

I have been wearing these for more than 10 years. They were recommended to me by a physical therapist. I have flat feet which causes pain in my shins and knees, these insoles give me the support that I need and take away the pain.


Perfect In Evey Way

Worked wonders for my foot pain. Since I started wearing them, my plantar fasciitis and metatarsal pain have been relieved. Thin insoles fit very nicely in low volume shoes.

Autumn S.


Comfortable

Really nice and soft but helps with foot pains


Best foot beds I ever bought

I have been wearing these regularly. Very comfortable and my feet don’t feel any pain anymore

David Foreit


Great footbed and even better value!

I have all my patients with foot/knee/ hip pain put these on their shoes with great results. Great value. Much better than going to the podiatrist for “custom” and VERY expensive footbeds


Comfortable footbed for running

The cork footbeds are very comfortable! I have very flat feet, and I don't have any pain after a good jog! Recommended!


Very durable

I've used SOLE Active Thick for over 15 years and continue to use them in every pair of sneakers I own. It works great and took away my pain from plantar fasciitis.


The go to flipflops!

As a repeat purchaser these are my go to sandals for everyday else. Always help with my flat feet pains!


Stops foot pain!

I put these in some flat canvas shoes and they made them so comfortable! Highly recommend!


Fixed my knee pain

I couldn’t believe all I needed was inserts to fix the pain I had in my knee. They are exceptional inserts and I’ll be using them the rest of my life.


Perfect

I have mortons neuroma. Very painful. These insoles support my feet perfectly to almost eliminate any flare ups. They are very comfortable and long lasting. Highly recommend.


No more foot pain

I’ve been wearing them for several years, and they were finally reaching the end of their life, so reordered them. Love, love love them

Maria Hoffmeyer


Still Loving These

I cannot imagine life without these after having them around now for almost a year. Walking around the house first thing in the am was soooo painful before I had these to ease my way into the day. They are also perfect for a rest from other shoes when my forefeet needs to spread out. I have a wide hyperflexible foot with a high (narrow girth) arch, dorsal bunions, Morton's neuroma and sometimes nerve entrapment.

Kristen Smith


My new favourites

My usual summer flip flops were giving me lots of foot pain this year. I was already ordering the SOLE footbeds so thought I’d try these out too. Super happy I did. Look great and feel great!


Comfort

Use them every day due to my flat feet and feel less pain in ankles and knees. Very comfortable.


Top quality flips

The support these flips provide is unlike any others I have ever tried. I can actually wear these without worrying about foot pain afterwards like the typical flip.


Great footbeds!

I bought an expensive pair of shoes that were very uncomfortable and gave me back pain. After buying my Sole's and wearing them in these shoes, no more back pain.


Great boot inserts

I had been suffering from plantar fasciitis for months. I put these insoles into a recently purchased pair of Blundstone boots and they helped reduce the pain tremendously.


Best footbeds

I have been wearing SOLE for now 4 years exclusively after having a series of foot pains. The best pair of footbeds you can buy and rely on


Very impressed

I tried various off-the-shelf insoles to deal with ball of foot pain usually experienced when playing sports. I must say that the "Active with the met pad" model by SOLE has been the most effective for me in relieving pain and discomfort. I've worn these now for the past several weeks and the insoles seem to have molded well to the shape and contour of my feet and are very comfortable. Very satisfied!


Great flip-flop

I have been wearing these as my around-the-house pair of sandals to try to lessen walking around barefoot too much. I am an active runner and have had plantar fascia issues off and on over the years. Along with more stretching, switching to SOLE flip-flops has significantly helped relieve those issues. I haven't had any re-occurrence of my previous pain, so I have increased my wearing of SOLE flip-flops and am very happy about it!


Best Insoles Ever

Used these for weeks at work and loved them. Relieved foot and back pain.


Cute and reduce pain!

I absolutely love these shoes. Not only do they suit my style and are great for work or walking around the neighbourhood, but the footbeds really help with my alignment and reduce my lumbosacral/SI joint pain. Thanks SOLE for making attractive orthopedic quality footwear!

Karen Ricker


Great Support in a Flip Flop

The Baja Flip sandal has been my go-to shoe all summer long! The arch support is TERRIFIC on my flat-ish feet - enough to keep me from pronating, but not so much that it causes me pain. I have very narrow but long feet and generally wear about a 10-1/2 in closed shoes - but the Women’s size 9 in the Baja Flip is perfect. I’ve ordered them in 4 different colors!


Great insoles

I bought my first pair of insoles about six years ago to releive plantar pain and they really did the job! Since then I have purchased four more pairs and use them in all my shoes. So far, no more plantar problems.


Good Arch Support

These shoes help with the pain from scar tissue near the arch of my foot. They are very comfortable to walk in and didn't take a long time to break in. I also like the color and style.


Saved my training

I was struggling with chronic knee issues. My doctor did an analysis and said something like SOLE would change my running life. And it has. It helped prevent ITB pain. If you’ve been recommended orthopedics I highly recommend these!


Foot pain?

I purchased these because I have neck pain from an old injury. I can't walk more than a 10 minutes without stopping from pain and headaches, but since I found these I can finally keep up with my wife shopping the Mall all day.


BEST footbeds EVER!

I've been wearing SOLE footbeds and flipflops for 15+ years and have had ZERO foot pain ever since my first pair! (Waaayyy better than my $400 orthotics!!!) I have these in all my shoes: work (5+ hrs, in an industrial kitchen on cement floor), everyday shoes & dress shoes. Thank you, SOLE, for saving me from a lifetime of foot pain (plantar fasciitis)!!


Great

I stand on my feet all day everyday for work, and these have been so helpful. My foot pain has gone away. Very comfy, highly recommend


Best Friend

Besides my four legged best friend basenji Lucy, my insoles are my second best friends! Taking walks is no longer painful, I can keep up with her for her daily two long walks! Thank you SOLE both Lucy and me!

Cynthia Murphy


SOLE saved my life

I was suffering from PTTD (Posterior Tina Tendon Dysfuncttion) and was told by one podiatrist that I need to have surgery. I saw another orthopedic doctor for a second opinion who said that there was another option. I saw a PT who gave me some exercises and I bought the SOLE inserts for my tennis shoes that he recommended. I could not believe the change in my pain since I starting wearing them. I no longer run around barefoot or in flip flops. I ordered a pair of the Malibu sandals. It is the first thing I put on my feet when I get out of bed. It is amazing. No more pain!! They are cute too! Thank you for keeping me from having a very long recovery from a surgery. Your product is life changing!!

My Only Flip

I have been wearing Balboa since fall of 2021 when I was searching for relief for my painful feet. I have multiple things going on - hallux rigidus, Morton's foot, high arch, hyperflexible foot and nerve entrapment. These flips allow me to walk around when I first get up without pain.....without excruciating pain. I don't wear them for hours as I need more support, but these have just the right contour and cushion for the first segment of my day. Sooo grateful to SOLE for this product as well as the insoles.


The only flip flops where my heels don’t hurt after wearing!

I have worn many flip flops over the years and after hours of walking around in them, my heels would be in pain. I can wear these Catalina Sport Flips all day long and not have any pain the following morning. Truly amazing product.


Goldilocks Flip Flop

I have tried a least a dozen other flip flips/sport sandals to find some that didn’t cause pain to my back and legs after walking and standing. This was it! I have had lumbar surgeries and my back, legs and moderately arched foot are just cranky with the wrong support. I’ve sworn loyalty to SOLE inserts in my athletic shoes for years and don’t know why it took me so long to realize they also made flip flops. I put this on and it was perfection right away - not too hard, not too soft, arch placement was supportive but not aggressive and the straps were soft yet keep the shoe right in place. I have since purchased the Baja (slightly harder sole, very stable) and Monterey cork (firmer yet) but the Catalina is my favorite for putting on in the morning and wearing all day.


Best footed ever

My wife has been wearing them for work and they reduce foot pain a lot.


Comfortable, supportive and light weight!

Having had lots of foot issues, (plantar fasciitis mostly), flip flops are not generally a good match for my feet. Most of them on the market have no support in the food bed. However, SOLE flip flops offer a comfortable, supportive foot bed that allows my feet to do their job without any pain or issues. They are very lightweight and comfortable to walk in. The straps don't give me blisters either. To make them perfect for me, they would have a more durable outsole on them, however, I guess that might take away from their light weight.

Joanne


Best flip flops ever

For my feet, these are the best flip flops ever. I have had bunion surgery and have nerve pain. I wear these year round because they are the only shoe that works for me. The metatarsal pad is incredible.


Comfortable Casual

Since I have plantars fasciitis- I have been able to wear flip flops without pain. These have provided me with the support I need.


Best Orthotics I Have Ever Owned

I discovered these amazing footbeds when I was doing some research on arthritis relief for the feet/ankles/knees. Over the last couple years, my arthritis has gotten so bad in my lower extremities that I struggle to walk without a cane or walking stick. When I started searching for ideas to help alleviate the worsening pain, I found a number of articles recommending the footbed offerings from SOLE. I was leery that they could make too great a difference, but even a small improvement was welcome. When I received my footbeds, I immediately placed them in my walking shoes and tried them out. It took a couple wearings for the footbeds to completely form to my feet, but the improvement was nearly immediate! After I stand and stretch a bit, I can get around so much better now. I am able to go grocery shopping (or anywhere else for that matter) without taking my cane with me. I have even been able to return to the gym and walk a couple miles with limited pain. These footbeds have been a true life-changer!


Relief!

I'd purchased 'better' shoes to try to alleviate the knee pain from a slight pronation, but it wasn't until I added these that I finally had shoes that fit comfortably. I have purchased several additional pairs.

Best Footwear for Plantar Fasciitis

SOLE flip flops are must have. I have wearing them since 2013. I have plantar fasciitis and, thanks to SOLE I have been pain free. This is the first time I purchased the flip flop with cork material, I am super impressed with the quality, much better feel. I am size 7.5 and always order 7 but with the cork footbeds I would recommend going half a size up.


Greatest Foot beds ever

I have been using SOLE footbeds for weeks and they make my feet feel so much better. At the end of a long day on my feet I have no pain like I did before I tried them!!!


Changed my life

My foot pain is completely gone. I wear SOLE products in every shoe I own and I’ve never been disappointed. Canadian company with amazing shipping. If you’re thinking about it, just get some. You’ll be happy!!!


Excellent Product

I've worn my SOLE insoles for about two weeks. After a few days, I noticed no foot pain or aching. I have no specific injury or pain, just aching. My feet feel good at all times. Very good product, and very comfortable.


SOLE insoles

Excellent value . Bought for my husband who constantly complained foot knee and hip pains. He says his feet no longer hurt at days end and he is able to walk again in evenings. Very comfortable and excellent fit


My favourite sandals

I have been wearing these for several weeks now. I love them! They are super comfortable and because of the met pads I do not have pain from Morton’s Neuroma. I really like the materials used. Took a few days to break in but I can definitely recommend them. Thanks!


SOLE Medium

I have been wearing the medium performance insoles for several years now. I am on my feet about 14 hours a day at work and walk about 12 to 18,000 steps on an average work day carrying tons of weight. These are the best insoles I have ever owned I now have them in my tennis shoes too. They last a long time and don't seem to get worn out very quickly like other shoe insoles. But I do rotate them daily. I cannot work without them. I have a high arch and plantar fasciitis and have zero foot pain with these inserts. I love them.


The best insoles ever!

This insole with met pad has saved my feet when wearing my Rykas. They are in my exercise shoes, and while I no longer jump as high or run, my feet are supported and without pain. The met pad has been the key. All my shoes, whether for exercising, walking or just everyday wear have Soles. Soooo much better than what I got from the foot doctor!

Lori Barnes


Love Love Love!

Although I have owned several pairs of rubber SOLE Sandals, this was my first pair of Cork SOLE Sandals. And let me tell you... these are amazing! All the support my feet need, pain relief for my knees and hips... with just a little bit of dressier appearance. I can still wear them casually, but even pull them off at work! I've been caught in a rain shower and both the cork and fabric strap have dried perfectly fine. You definitely need to try these!

Maria


Necessary Flip

I bought these last fall as I was working my way out of a bad nerve entrapment issue causing pain in my heel that stopped me from walking, SOLE insoles have been very important and time on these Balboa Flips is essential, especially first thing in the morning. I have a high arch. These fit perfectly and give just the right amount of support and cushion to get my foot used to the transition into the day, I hope that this sandal will still be represented in the new line up! Thank you SOLE for getting me back on my feet!


Worked Great

These insoles worked as advertised, my foot pain diminished after about a week.


Happie Tootsies

My order was shipped promptly and as soon as I fitted the SOLE insoles to my shoes, my feet are much less painful and I am much happier: I could not recommend any product higher. If you need support I hope you find the fit and comfort that I have with SOLE insoles: I now have 3 pair distributed between my riding/walking shoes and hiking boots. Cheers and I hope each of you reading this can achieve more miles with more smiles from such quality foot support .


Foot pain relief

I was suffering from Morton's Neuroma for years & finally decided to go see a podiatrist. They suggested I try SOLE footbeds before anything else. Wow, what a difference in my day to day! I love them! I even got a second pair & recommended them a few times already.


Heel pain gone

Put these in my golf shoes. Heel pain went away and scores improved.


Nothing short of magical

I work in the events industry, so I spend an average of 8 hours standing in dress shoes - and it’s usually on concrete. By the end of an event my feet are killing me, and that translates all the way through my hips, and my lower back too. I’ve had these for about 2 months now and can truly say they are life changing, and make my dress shoes feel like runners. The pain is gone after a long event, and it sure beats ugly looking supportive dress shoes. Thank you SOLE!


Eliminates foot pain

Got these to help with my metatarsalgia, and they have worked wonders! I wear can hike all day now without any pain. Would recommend!

Karen luzny


Flatfoot style

We discovered in the spring that my 13 yr old daughter has flat feet and was experiencing pain in her knees and back. Not cool? But what was even less cool was the prospect of not being able to wear flip flops. When I remembered that SOLE had flip flops made using the footbeds it was an easy decision to order. They were delivered within days of ordering and have been worn daily. My daughter doesn’t complain about knee or back pain and always looks hip and with it.


I have happy feet again!

My foot pain is gone. I purchased this product for my low profile sneakers and casual shoes. I already own SOLE insoles for my sport runners for jogging. They just didn't fit my other shoes for work (retail). I gave these insoles a chance and they didn't disappoint. I have been wearing them everyday for approx a month now. I am impressed with the cushion from the cork.


Great product

I have had multiple surgeries on my knees and walking proved painful most days. Since I have started using SOLE insoles the pain is minimal, which is wonderful. I buy quality shoes and quality insoles and they are worth every penny spent. I switch the insoles out every 4-5 months and keep on truckin. Thanks SOLE


GREAT!

I have fallen arches. I know when it's time to either buy new shoes or replace the arch support. In the most recent case, it was both. The signals that my body produces so that I realize that "it's time", I start to get pain that radiates to my right knee and then the right hip, if I wait too long to replace. Once I do make the correction, the pain dissipates within a day or two. I have been using SOLE products for over 10 years and I have tried other products! For-me, these are the best.

Penny Perry


BEST on Market

I was suffering from PTTD and Plantar fasciitis along with knee and hip pain. After wearing the Baja Sandal for one day there was an incredible difference. This sandal did what 10 weeks of physio couldn't do. I am the proud owner of 5 pairs and have now ordered inserts for my winter footwear. THIS WAS DEFINITELY THE BEST SHOE EVER. I have encouraged many people to try it out and not one single note of negative feedback.


Life changing inserts

Avid golfer, had significant plantar fascia strain in my left heel due to pronation and high unsupported arches. Since wearing these in my daily shoes I have zero fascial pain. Highly recommend


FOR ME, THE BEST OF THE BEST

I have SOLE shoe liners in all of my all-day shoes, about a half dozen pair. They make pain free days for my feet, and that's a major upgrade for me. My wife gave me my first pair maybe eight years ago and it made quite a difference for me. This is my first pair with met pads and I believe they are a little better than the regular thick ones for my feet. Your results may vary.


Fashion and function

These are my third pair of sandals and once again they are beautiful and very comfortable. Helps greatly with plantar fasciitis and I highly recommend them for alleviating foot pain.


Glad I got the thin size

I’m exclusively a barefoot shoe wearer but was getting a lot of knee pain from walking so ordered insoles for my barefoot shoes before a trip to New York. So glad I ordered ‘thin’ as these were tight getting into my barefoot sneakers. I also didn’t think the ‘wide’ size was really wide enough for my monster feet but once they were in the shoes it was fine. I can’t really say whether these helped with my knee pain as it was still very much present during our trip but I think they helped a bit, and we did a lot of walking!


Works great

I have Morton's Neuroma and these insoles work just as well as Birkenstocks with no pain at all! I had hoped it would be a little narrow to fit in some of my flats. They do say you can cut it to size but I was nervous about doing that and I usually have to switch the insoles between shoes I'm wearing so that isn't ideal. But still, they do the job of getting rid of the pain, so I am happy!

Penny Perry


Best ever!!

I cant say enough how great thes flips are for my foot pain! They did what $600 in orthotics failed to do! Customer service is outstanding! They are quick to sort out any problems that may come up, and make ordering so simple! Gold Star rating

Christopher Kappler


Comfy and fashionable

I love wearing sandals but with my arch I needed sandals with support. I got my first pair of SOLE 10 years ago and I can wear them all day, pain free. Just like everything in life, you get what you pay for.


Love them

Got them earlier this year & using them in my running shoes. I walk quite a bit & they are very comfortable. I need the met pad and the pain in my foot has subsided because of these insoles. I have a wide foot size 6 1/2 & ordered a size 7. They fit perfectly. I will buy them again.

Kathryn McArthur


Comfy

I bought this shoe because I have flat feet and after wearing a flat sandal for a full day, my feet ache. Wore these for a 2.5 hr walking tour and no pain. Only negative is that the shoe looks large where my smaller toes are. It's almost like it should have more of an angle cut. Hard to explain. Arch support is in the correct spot so I know it's not too big. Otherwise very comfortable and worth the investment.


So good..

I have had SOLE insoles for many years now. The SOLE insole features that works for me are: 1) Rigid - I hate soft insoles. They are hard to put in and have no support. SOLE insoles is just perfect going in. 2) Support - It took awhile but once the insole got molded to my feet, it feels so good. No more feet pains.


I love it

I love the met pad active! I suffer from knee injuries, plantar fatigue and back pain. I've been using SOLE for several years now they are a game changer! I can walk my dogs with more confidence and less pain. I love them so much, I have them in all my shoes and boots. I also have metatarsal foot pain and the met pad really helps that. I used to use those sticky pads and never could get them adjusted right, the sole with met pad is perfect for me! Thank you so much for easing my pain.


Best Sandal Ever

Just purchased my second pair of SOLE sandals. Love them!! These sandals are so good for relieving pain for planter fasciitis and bunions which I have both. The cork that is used to make the Women's Laguna Flip is very cushioning but great support. These sandals will last, and will only get more comfortable with age. I highly recommend these sandals


good stuff

These seem to work well and have helped my standing and walking posture. I made a mistake on the order and immediately emailed them and they adjusted correctly, so good customer service on that. I've never used orthotics before and found some lower leg pain. I asked the person who recommended them (my yoga instructor) who said that I should "ease into them", wearing them only a little each day and building up to more time. So I've taken to that and still only wear them for short walks. I do hope to wear them for longer periods. But even with the short walks, the improvement regardless of what I am wearing on my feet is evident. so, good stuff...


Awesome product

The product was recommended to me by a friend due to plantar fasciitis. I was a little hesitant and skeptical but it has made a significant difference. After wearing SOLE for a couple of weeks I did not feel my heel anymore. Being a trainer and dance coach, I can now get back to all activities, pain free. This will not be my last pair!


Straighten Up Those Ankles

My new Asolo walking shoes almost fit my very narrow feet. But when I realized that my ankles and feet were rotating inward, I tried some SOLE Active Medium footbeds. But they were too thick. So I ordered a pair of SOLE Active Thin footbeds. The heat fit formed these to my feet, but kept the arch high. My ankles and feet are straight again, and my shoes fit so much better. I've walked many miles in them over the last six weeks both over rough terrain and on concrete paths with no foot pain. If these Thin footbeds are as tough as their thicker siblings (and I think they are), they should last for years.


These Really Work

I had the painful condition of PTTD (acquired fallen arches). I needed very major and specific support for my feet. I had heard about this product on a podiatry blog and decided to try it. I followed the instructions on heat molding, creating the future shape that my foot required to return to functioning. I could feel the relief on the very first walk with them. I showed them to my podiatrist, who gave her full approval to the shaping. They are lightweight, cushy, yet offer amazing support. I bought several more pairs to have them in all my shoes. If you need more support than you get from standard inserts, these are for you. If you need a custom made orthotic, you may want to try these first. They really work. Now several months later, my foot is no longer painful and I am back to running - shorter distances this time. Very satisfied customer.

Cured my tendonitis

I have suffered with posterior tibial tendonitis for YEARS, and these shoes have been a life saver. I wear them as slippers in the house and they have cured my tendonitis. For the first time in years I can walk pain free.


Very effective ! Say good bye to heel pain!

These insoles work great! I have them in every pair of my shoes. The heel pain from plantar fasciitis has not reoccurred since using them, which is huge because I am on my feet all day.


Keeping me moving

I have been using these inserts in my hiking boots for about five years. I buy a new pair of Oboz boots every year and a new pair of SOLE inserts to go with them, as recommended by my podiatrist.Just before getting my latest pair, I had begun to notice back pain when walking. This went away immediately when I began wearing the new boots with inserts..I'm 76 years old, over weight and walk one to two miles per day. This combination of boots and inserts are vital to keeping me moving. I and my dog thank you.


Just Amazing

For years I've had massive pain in my feet due to fallen arches. Working 10 hour shifts became a nightmare. Honestly I'm not even sure how I came across SOLE insoles..but I thank the Lord above that I did! They are true to size. The Thick has firm padding which I love. And sturdy arch support that does not hurt my arches (flat feet). If you ave pronation problems you really should try these.


Very satisfied with Active Thick insole

I've now tried 3 insoles and my preferred is Active Thick without Met pad. Better to order the larger size and it's easy to trim it down to fit perfectly. Relieves foot pain for outdoor work boots.


Pretty and practical

I have wide feet and these sandals are perfect. The support is wonderful and difficult to find in a pretty flip flop. I have ankle pain from injuries and wearing these support sandals lessens the pain. Some of my other sandals feel fine when wearing but my ankles hurt after taking them off. That does not happen when I wear these.


Fantastic Relief and Comfort

I am an older retired male who hikes almost daily in the local hills and mountains near Vancouver, BC. I was finding the one foot in particular was becoming progressively more painful and required icing after my hikes. It was getting to the point where I was starting to wonder if my hiking and backpacking days were coming to an end. I can't say enough about the SOLE Active Thick insert with the built in met pad. Over the past 2 months my condition has dramatically improved and continues to do so the more I use this product. I also purchased a second set for another pair of shoes as well as the flip flop sandal with the met pad so that my foot is supported even when I am not hiking. I am now looking forward to a coming summer filled with a number of multi-day backpacking trips in the Canadian Rockies and Vancouver Island. Thanks for providing such a brilliant product line.


One word- Amazing!

I love running and working out but have flat feet. For months my hip and knee have been hurting. I decided to give these insoles a try and can’t believe how amazing they are. They provide the perfect arch support to align my body. No more pain! I bought three pairs!

Flippy Floppies

I have been searching for a while for a flip flop with good arch support. For years I’ve dealt with foot and knee pain from having flat flip flops. I was excited to come across these when I bought insoles. These are comfortable to wear, my feet don’t slip around when wet and they have good traction on wet ground. The only setback would be the hard plastic piece that goes between your toes, that might be more comfortable if it was fabric. But it was only the start of the season and my callous hadn’t formed yet. I would definitely buy these again. Thanks


Huge difference

I have been wearing SOLE for years. My doctor recommended them for me because I was having a lot of pain in my foot (arches). When it came time to replace my old pair I was able to purchase them online. Which was much easier than trying to get an appt at the doctors office lately.


Exponential Improvement

I can't believe how much difference these Active Thins w Met pad have made. Huge improvement in hip pain. History of injuries, twice broken right heel, never did knit back together properly, the arch dropped and basically the whole foot changed shape and function, been awful. Affected the entire right leg. The SOLE insert is the only one since 2007 that's given me any relief and stabilized my foot. It allows me to have a normal heel to toe roll on the bad foot. Used the size chart to order correct size women 10 and fit is perfect .


Comfort and pain relief with cork SOLE flips

I bought and wore out 3 pairs of cork SOLE flips years ago. I was crushed when SOLE stopped offering them. I have bought the EVA SOLE flips but never liked them quite as much, so when I saw the cork SOLE flips were once again available I instantly ordered a pair. The cork does feel a little different than what I previously ordered, although it’s been so long I’d be hard pressed to say in what way. Regardless, I’m happy to have them!


great product

This product was recommended to me by my sports medicine physician. It has delivered a great experience all around, mitigating foot pain due to a neuroma and keeping me on the right track to good foot health. Thank you.


Great insoles

These insole products have corrected a problem with my daughters walking and alleviated pain. I am delighted. This was why we ordered a second pair and will order more for each of her pairs of shoes. When ordered, they arrived two days later. Great work. Thank you!


pain no more

These insoles eliminated the foot pain I experience while cycling from Morton's Neuroma. I highly recommend these for anyone else suffering from foot pain.


Pain Free

Sometimes a product comes along that just changes the way you view a product. I have tried many different shoe inserts to help with pain in my feet and I have never found anything that totally stops pain in my feet the way that the SOLE inserts do. These inserts made me wonder if I was in my 20s again. If you have ever had foot problems and need to feel pain free from your shoes I would encourage anyone to give these inserts a try. I am not one who usually gets on the band wagon touting a product but these inserts are the closest thing to forgetting about foot pain I have ever experienced. MAGIC.


Thank You SOLE for giving me my life back

I have numerous issues with my feet. Ball of the foot pain, heel pain and bad arches. I had tried many different products in the past with very limited results. Then I discovered the SOLE products. Instantly after inserting these into my shoes I got some relief. As the insole wore in some more, they got more and more comfortable. I was never able to spend many hours on my feet before getting the SOLE product. This product allows me to function again! I was so pleased with the results that I ordered some more for spares, as I now know that I can't survive without them!


Great Product!

I have had a nagging ankle sprain for quite some time now, and I finally got around to getting some SOLE inserts, as my doctor explicitly recommended SOLE. I wish I had gotten them earlier! I'm on my feet for all of my time at work and they really alleviate a lot of pain that I didn't realize I had for so long. My feet in general aren't as sore after my shift and my ankle hardly has any pain. I, of course do ankle exercises to also help but there was drastic change and relief after having started to use the inserts in my work boots. I would recommend these to anyone that needs arch support for sure!


Made a difference

Had weight bearing episodic pain in ball of foot in proximal third metatarsal joint. The Thick met pad Sole reduced the pain when used with a wide toe box shoe. Can't notice a difference from heat shaping the pad as instructed.


Comfortable Sandals

I’ve been using these since April 2, 2022 and find the sandals are comfortable to use despite bunions on my feet. These wear-moldable, water-friendly sandals made of Bloom Algae Foam makes it light and the surface feels good on the feet. The cushioning is sufficient plus the padded microfiber strap is super comfortable. As advertised, the METATARSAL SUPPORT PAD relieves pain and pressure in the ball of the foot by lifting toe bones into natural alignment.


Little things in life make a big difference

I have been wearing these for quite a while and love them. I recently purchased a pair for my 72 year old mother. Mom was experiencing heal pain. The pain was at its worst first thing getting out of bed, or after sitting for prolonged periods of time. Once she was up walking the pain would get better, but never completely go away. The pain in her heels caused her to walk with a wobble. I bought these insoles for my mom, and had them shipped directly to her house. Mom called me a few minutes after receiving them. Within a few minutes of wearing them she felt some pain relief and more stable walking. After a few days of wearing them all day the heal pain has completely gone away. I will be ordering a second pair, so that she has a pair for her house shoes, and outside shoes. Thank you to the people who designed these insoles.


These are great!

I’ve been using these for a couple years. I’ve always needed shoes with extra support but hadn’t found the right inserts. I had some pretty significant foot and ankle pain a couple years ago and saw a podiatrist who recommended these. These help a lot with my pronation, yay


Why I recommend Sole

I walk on concrete floor all day and my feet were so sore at the end of the day. Since finding SOLE insoles, my feet feel fabulous. The way they mold around my feet, I can spend the entire 8 hrs walking and my feet, knees and hips are not in pain. There is cushion, comfort and end of day relief. They last longer than my shoes do, I have used them consistently for over 3 yrs and would (and do) recommend them to anyone who needs comfort on their feet!


Awesome insoles

These things are great. I've had these insoles in for about 45 days. I'm walking on concrete floors for 12 hr+ a day and my feet don't hurt one bit. Use to have heel pain about 2/3 through my work day and now none.


Always Impressed

I have used SOLE products for the last 5 years and have always been impressed with the product. I used to wear orthotics, my Physio recommended SOLE and I've never gone back. I have recommended this product to friends and family who also have enjoyed ending foot pain. Every pair of shoes I wear has SOLE insoles


Finally, relief from foot pain!

I am one of the numerous sufferers of peripheral neuropathy. For years I have endured foot pain that has taken me from an active runner to rarely going for walks because of constant foot pain. I prefer to stay clear of the pharmaceutical pain relief strategy, and decided to try a set of SOLE footbeds. Not sure which product to purchase, I used the SOLE Product Guide to determine which product was best for my condition. Sure enough, the Active Medium with Met Pad was suggested. I purchased the product and it was delivered to my home in just a few days. Following instructions on how to form the footbed to my foot shape, I set the footbeds in the oven at low temperature for a few minutes. Next, I placed each footbed into a pair of my shoes, put the shoes on and waited for the material to conform to my personal foot shape. Skip forward two months, and I can say that after years of foot pain, I am much relieved. Not only can I now go back to long pain free walks, but I have more energy, because I am not in constant pain. These soles are great. The Actives with Metpads easily transfer from one pair of shoes into another. Now that I am satisfied with how well they work, I plan to order another pair for my runners. Relief is a great thing!


Amazing

These soles have saved me a lot of pain ! Thanks

Jo Flower


Still Happy!

I started using SOLE insoles when I started having foot problems from lack of arch support at least 10 years ago. They have been 5 star the whole time, relieved all my pain. I have worn SOLE sandals as well and they worked great for me. I highly recommend SOLE products and have been in my shoe repair shop as well as sharing them with friends and family. Thank you SOLE!


indispensable

I use these insoles in all my shoes: runners, boots, dress shoes because since I've been using them for at least 4 years, my Nortons neuroma has not bothered me. Metatarsal pads in your shoe inserts and removable metatarsal pads can also offload the ball of your foot where you are having pain. They are comfortable & I use a variety of thicknesses depending on the shoe and activity.


What a difference!

I tore my arches over a year ago, and they've caused near constant pain since. I figured I'd try the met pad souls. At first they didn't feel right, and I figured I was just gonna have to suck it up. I kept wearing them in hopes that they'd do something eventually. (Kind of like a painful massage) Within a couple weeks, the pain that has been haunting my arches had subsided. I am in awe! Truly didn't think insoles could make this kind of difference! I am beyond grateful! Truly appreciated!


Best thing since sliced bread!

I’ve been using these products for about 2 years now. I had these new work boots and They killed my feet. I’ve tried everything i I could from stores and nothing. My buddy told me to check out SOLE. I was skeptical about the price but, I gave it a go. It relieved my pain right away. I bought some new daily shoes and replaced the sole with a new one with the met pad. Took a bit to get used to but, I love it. SOLE saved my feet!


Perfect in winter hikers

Thank goodness for these insoles. I live in an area that doesn't have sidewalks everywhere. With my plantar fasciitis, I need to feel secure when I am out in the elements. Once I realized how reliable this footbed was, I knew I could purchase footwear without worrying about comfort and pain management.


Sport flips

Purchased the orange Sport Flips and love them. Have been wearing SOLE sandals and using footbeds for a number of years now and the sandals are pretty much all I wear in the summer. Great support which helps to align feet and knees. No more knee pain. Extremely comfortable with long lasting material. Highly recommended.


Best fit best value EVER!

I have been wearing these in ALL my shoes for 5 years. I have 6 pair that stay in each set of shoes. Dress shoes, hunting and fishing boots and cross training shoes. These SOLE inserts have saved me from years of aggravated foot pain. They fit my foot and shoe size perfectly. They are comfortable - I have had custom made inserts from other companies, made for much more money (thousands $$), and they didn't work and they weren't comfortable or durable. I tried these out of desperation and now I wouldn't leave the house without them. Thank you! SOLE!


SOLE saved me!!

I can’t begin to describe how happy I am that I was recommended SOLE for my feet by my chiropodist. I’ve been having terrible feet issues(fat pad atrophy)for the last 4 to 5 months. I’m an avid hiker and on my feet all day long. I was literally hobbling around in pain all day. A few weeks after incorporating SOLE footbeds into my life I am completely pain free and continuing my active lifestyle. Very easy to put into any shoe. Thank you from the bottom of my feet.


Comfortable insoles

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


Work awesome

I have trouble with metatarsalgia and pain on the top of my feet along the my toes. I have a pair of custom orthotics for my work shoes but needed something for all my other shoes to keep my feet in check all day long. These give my feet relief now. I also ordered flip flops because these insoles work so well


Great for snowboard boots

I bought these specifically for my snowboard boots after my old foot beds were making my feet hurt incredibly bad. My issue with the old foot beds was lack of arch support, despite buying ones that matched my arch perfectly. However, when I snowboarded the beds would push down and provide zero support. That's when I did some research and found out about SOLE, and bought a pair online. They took a little getting used to but I could immediately tell that my issue with arch support was gone. The SOLE foot beds kept their form and relieved the pain that I had dealt with before. Great product for snowboard boots


Best Insoles!

Recommended by a podiatrist, these are the best insoles I've found, for relieving my plantar fasciitis. Love them - they are super comfortable, and make a huge difference in pain level of my feet.


A lot less pain

I have been using to product for 3 months. I can now stand up for several hours like a normal person. Being able to walk is a matter of mental health for me. This is a very sturdy product and comfortable.


All about the forefoot

From a tiny functional foot clinic serving Yukon Territory and northern BC, SOLE Active Medium is the only insole recommended. Recently purchased 5 pairs to have on hand for clients. Bonus dollars will directly benefit remote harder to reach clients. :) I no longer wear the product - which is a good thing b/c my foot, with the assistance of SOLE, is now barefoot. I like SOLE b/c it helps people's feet, lower limb, pelvis and lower back regain function after years of foot binding. SOLE provides the heal cup, active arch support and the vital forefoot needed for people to regain mobility while comfortably supported. Specific injuries and pain I recommend SOLE treat are the forefoot - which is stabilized when the heel, in the heel cup of the SOLE anchors the foot allowing the forefoot (metatarsals) to regain their beautiful full function - all the way to the tips of each straight toe - which is why I often recommend the wide.


Sport flips

Purchased the Sport Flips and love them. Have been wearing SOLE sandals and using footbeds for a number of years now and the sandals are pretty much all I wear in the summer. Great support which helps to align feet and knees. No more knee pain. Extremely comfortable with long lasting material. Highly recommended.


Thank Goodness!

I'm a martial artist, training and teaching karate and I'm an acupuncturist in private practice. I'd suffered an ankle injury years ago, which was acting up and affecting my knee and lower back and foot beds from the physio therapist were going to cost $400. It was then someone told me about SOLE Footbeds. When my first pair of Active Medium with Met Pad footbeds arrived in their slim, environment conscious packaging, I got them in my shoes and I immediately felt relief and comfort. It took just days for all my pain to disappear! Now I recommend them to all my patients with back or lower extremity joint pain and I wear them in all my shoes. It's been about a year now that I've been wearing the footbeds and I'll keep wearing them forever.


Giveaway Review

-I bought the product because I have had flat feet my whole life and would like to avoid any issues with pain down the road as I get older. -2 Months Daily -I like how the sole forms around the foot and offers daily support -The sole fits perfectly around my large feet -I think the materials used were combined for a perfect design -The sole is very comfortable!


Great product

These insoles are as good as my custom orthotics. I use them daily running or walking! Great arch support and nice padded heel cushion. Definitely helps my plantar fasciitis pain.


I love my insoles

This is my second set of SOLE Active Medium Wide insoles and I have been using them for the past year. I walk and hike a lot and have ongoing issues with soreness in my feet and my knees. These insoles have reduced the pain in my feet and I can walk even farther these days and not take so many rest days. The insoles are comfortable and the fit is true to size so they slip into my shoes like they are made for them.


Ball of Foot pain

Bought these insoles to see if they would help with pain in toes and ball of foot. They have helped a great deal and have now purchased three pairs to keep in different shoes. They are comfortable and fit perfect in my shoes.


Performance Thin Soles

I purchased two pairs of these insoles for use in ski boots. I purchased one for myself, and one for my wife. My wife and I have put about 20 days and a few short tours on these insoles since buying them in the middle of February and we both love them. My arches have a tendency to hurt after a day of staying on my feet, these insoles have alleviated a lot of that arch pain. My wife broke her ankle a few years back and sometimes complains about pain and the feeling of instability in that ankle especially when we are doing tours. Since using this insole she feels much more supported and a lot of that pain has gone away. As far as performance goes these insoles are a giant leap over the stock insoles we were using in our current boots and not nearly as expensive as custom insoles. They were also easy to install and form, and as you can imagine the more days you put on these the more comfortable they become! Since using these in my ski boots I have plans to buy a pair for my work-boots. Due to the nature of my job I often times end up walking several miles in my work-boots inspecting job sites, which often leads to very sore feet at the end of the day.


Happy feet and calves

I use these in a pair of otherwise useless and painful leather loafers. Unfortunately, I like the quality leather and look of them. Decided to try some SOLEs to see if I could salvage them. I was 100% right. I can now use these loafers like a regular everyday shoe. I've been using these now for 1 month now with much success. I am now in the process adding SOLEs to all my shoes and runnners.


Relieves foot pain

My podiatrist recommended these insoles and they help with foot pain . I need to get more for the rest of my shoes as currently I am just using them in my hiking boots. I wore deck shoes today without the insole and my feet really hurt!


Foot pain is gone

I purchased these insoles several weeks ago after having significant foot pain for many months. The discomfort when walking was gone after one week of wearing these insoles. I have purchased two more pairs for my other shoes as well.


Work Boot Perfection

I bought these for my work boots. I have to wear rubber boots that have no support for my job. These basically made my feet feel like I was wearing a pair of sneakers. I can easily make it through my long work days with no pain. Great insoles.


Solved my foot pain

I’ve been using SOLE footbeds for a few years now for pain related to over-pronation. Recently I began to have pain on the ball of my right foot. After doing some research I discovered that this was likely due to metatarsalgia. I decide to look to SOLE for help and found these Performance footbeds with built-in metatarsal support. I’ve begun using them regularly and my pain has disappeared. I’ll continue to buy the footbeds with Met Pads from now on.


Life-changing insoles

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


Excellent for running

This is my third pair of Active Medium which I have been using for the last 3 years. I am a regular runner but overpronate when I run. These soles provide excellent support, particularly on longer runs (over 10km) and I find I have less hip pain after the run. They fit perfectly in my running shoes and it didn't take long before I had forgotten that I have inner soles.


Extremely Helpful!

I had been dealing with foot pain for quite some time and tried a few products but the problem was never truly resolved. Then I heard about SOLE from the Darkhorse podcast and I have faith in their endorsements so I went for it! It was a great call. I have been using the footbeds for several weeks now and the results are very noticeable. The foot pain is basically gone and I'm on my feet for hours at a time. Also, they're very easy to transfer from shoe to shoe. Highly recommend!


THANK YOU FOR A GREAT PRODUCT!

PRICE IS MY FIRST CONSIDERATION WHEN CONSIDERING A NEW PURCHASE. SOLE ACTIVE THICK WITH MET PAD PREVENTS MY ANKLE SPRAIN, PATELLA FRACTURE, AND HIP REPLACEMENT PAIN! MY PODIATRIST RECOMMENDED YOUR SOLES TO ME 20 YEARS AGO! I HAVE BEEN BUYING YOUR SOLES FOR 20 YEARS! I STARTED PURCHASING SOLE INSERTS WITHOUT MET PADS. I HAD SUCCESS WITH COMFORT AND NOW I PURCHASE ACTIVE THICK WITH MET PADS! TOTAL COMFORT AND SUPPORT! I LIKE THE CORK SOLES THE BEST! WITH SOLE ACTIVE THICK WITH MET PADS I CAN WALK AND HIKE FOR MILES!


Great Product

My wife and I are both using the Medium with met pad and they really help with foot pain. We normally walk 4 miles a day and found that SOLE has helped with eliminating foot pain. We are wanting to try the Thick next.


Just buy them!!!!

My son has plantar fascitis and could hardly walk after practice. We have tried many different insoles and finally tried these. I can honestly say that these were the only ones that worked. With in a week he could go to practice without foot pain afterwards. We are getting ready to order him more for his other shoes!!!! He wears a size 8 basketball shor and the size 8 insoles fit perfectly with out trimming. They do not slide around and he has zero complaints!!!! Trust me.....we have tried them all and these are the only ones to help him.


Pain relief at an affordable price

It was a foot doctor who told me I had flat feet and the same doctor that told me about SOLE footbeds. I was looking at cortisone injections for bursitis in my left hip and within 2 weeks of wearing the inserts, all the pain went away! When I stopped wearing them the pain came back. I started wearing them again and the pain went away. Why I stopped it beyond me, and I cannot live without these! I also used to switch them between shoes but it doesn't always work as they mold to the shape of not only the foot but the shoe as well. So I just bought 3 pairs for my new runners and a spare to tuck away.


No more sore feet!

My arches are falling and it’s painful. These inserts improved my situation dramatically. The pain is gone. Plus, I can walk and stand for longer periods of time. Best of all, they fit a number of my shoes. Get them! You have only to gain.


The amazing woman’s Catalina sport flip

The women's Catalina Sport Flip was absolutely amazing. I've felt very comfortable in them and just love how good quality it is. It just seems so good for me that my heel pain went away. I highly recommend this to anybody who is buying this product.


SOLE Arch Supports

My wife and I run 4 miles/day 6 days/week and so it's critical we have the best support possible. We purchased our first pair of SOLE arch support inserts 6 years ago upon noticing a bit of arch pain and just purchased new sets via their website. The inserts eliminated any and all tenderness, they are comfortable, supportive, and durable; they fit like a glove, and the materials of the inserts keep our feet cool and dry. If like us you need added support, you can't go wrong with SOLE.

Save the Day with SOLE

I have been wearing SOLE for over ten years, ever since I was introduced to them at my favorite running store in Bend, OR. Each time I bought new running shoes they sold me a new pair of Soles. When I came up with hip pain I went to them, they analyzed my stride on a treadmill w/camera and recommended a level up on my Soles and my go-to running shoe. My problem was solved and saved my planned walking tour of Spain. I've been sold on SOLE ever since, they're worth the price! They fit so well, and offer different levels of support so as you age you can increase your level of comfort by upping that support.


AMAZING product saved my feet

I am very flat footed. Add to that I had MAJOR ankle surgery on my right ankle (all 3 sides opened up, bone removed, ligaments cut and re aligned, screws in heel area) so it’s safe to say I have daily foot pain. After resting my foot is stiff and sore like a peg leg. For an active person like myself it wasn’t good. Tried all kinds of creams, pain killers, even other inserts and orthotics…. Today I wore my SOLE inserts for the first time in my steel toed work boots…. It was LIFE CHANGING! After 8 hours on my feet, ladders, hauling heavy items…. NO FOOT PAIN!!! I’ve been home and rested… went to get up and it’s honestly like I have been given a new right foot! I am so thankful for my friend referring me to your company!!! I only wish I would have done it about 4 years ago!!! I can’t even thank you enough for these SOLE inserts…. You have given me my full life back! Thank you doesn’t seem appropriate, I will tell everyone I know about your amazing inserts. Lifetime purchaser here.


Son Inner soles

My son requires inner soles for his feet. We tried different inner soles, and he could it wear them for 4 hours. Today we bought this brand and he can wear them all day long, plus he doesn't have any more pain in his feet.


No more ankle pain when snowboarding

I was getting horrible ankle pain in my front foot while snowboarding and my trainer told me it was because of my flat feet. The SOLE thin beds fit in my boots perfectly and now I ride all day with no pain!’


Best insert ever!

I have high arches and I was having pain in them. I decided to get SOLE inserts to see if they would help, and I was amazed of how they supported my feet. My arches do not bother me any more and my feet feel more stable in the shoes because of the SOLE inserts!.


COMFORTABLE SLIDE SLIPPERS

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE COMFORTABLE SLIDE SLIPPERS. I WAS TOLD BY MY DOCTOR TO WEAR AN ARCH SLIPPERS, AND WHEN I ORDERED IN INSOLES, I SAW THE SLIPPERS OFFERED, I ORDERED AND IT HAS BEEN MY ONLY SLIPPERS I WEAR. VERY COMFORTABLE AND HELPED MY FOOT PAINS


HIGHLY RECOMMEND INSOLES

HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. CURED MY ACHING FOOT PAIN


Decreases my foot knee and back pain!

I have been using SOLE supports for years,because they help control my pronation and plantar fasciitis. In turn my knee and back pain are reduced by 80% and 40% respectfully. They keep me active and I can't thank you enough.


Changed Everything!

Great purchase! They fit well in my shoes and eased my foot pains. They are very comfortable and significantly decreased my flair-ups with plantar fasciitis.


I can run!

Every time I'd try to run, I'd end up with terrible knee pain after about 1/4 of a mile that would last for several days. I was trying knee and hip exercises with no relief. I finally looked towards my feet and found an over-pronation. With these insoles, I can run pain free! They also make my everyday shoes more comfortable. Thanks SOLE!


Amazing

Able to be on my feet all day without pain. Love these insoles.


Awesome insoles!

This was my first purchase of SOLE insoles. I heard about this company by doing a Google search for ski boot insoles for metatarsal foot pain. I've been suffering from foot pain in the balls of my feet for a number of years and my ski boots exacerbate the pain. I've tried other insoles in my boots which has helped a bit, but I still experience some pain after a day of skiing. I purchased these insoles prior to this year's ski season and so far, they have helped tremendously! I just returned from a 4-day ski vacation, which normally would cause a lot of foot pain, and I was so impressed with how comfortable these insoles are in my ski boots and that I was able to ski for multiple days in a row with hardly any discomfort. I plan on purchasing another pair of insoles for my street shoes as even regular shoes cause discomfort when walking.


LOVE SOLE

Love SOLE inserts. So comfortable and easy to fit. I am extremely flat footed and used to have to spend $ 800 for lift but my doctor recommended SOLE inserts, I love them and no longer have back or knee pain.


Best Inserts Ever!!!!

Title says it all. Best insoles I've ever had, and I've probably tried over 20 different brands to help with plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia. Within just a few days, almost all the pain was gone. Will never buy another brand of insoles, a customer for life!


Worth a try!

I bought the Performance Thick to insert into my Manitobah mukluks so I would be able to enjoy them again! They have been amazing! My leg pain aka shin splint ache at night has all but disappeared. I wear them all day as my slippers! After the first week I noticed the change and then after 6 weeks, it is no coincidence. I like them just as much as the custom orthotics that cost 10 times the price. Highly recommend!


Solved some issues

Have been wearing these for several months and has resolved some Met pain issues in my foot. Comfortable and fit well in hiking boots that I have with almost no trimming and adjustment. Would like to see different Met levels. Could use a bit more Met padding for me personally. All in all, a good investment for foot comfort.


Great insoles

I have used these insoles in my winter boots for about 6 weeks. The are super comfortable and supportive. Previous pain I had wearing these boots is gone. The insulation on the bottom of the insole is a nice touch. These are quality insoles.


great support slide

I previously bought the Mateo sport slide and liked the support and comfort it gave, but not fond of how the material stretched out after a couple of months, making them slip off easily. After reading a review about the Mendocino Sport Slide where the person said you could adjust as they stretched, I decided to give these a try. They do help a lot with my ankles as I have broken then several times over in the past and my doctor told me I need to wear support shoes at all times and not to go barefoot. We have hardwood floors at home and before I started wearing these support shoes my ankles always hurt when I wore other types of slippers, now I don't have any pain. I have been wearing a few months and like how they feel on other than the material gets a bit hot like the others did as well, but I would rather have my ankles happy so I will continue with these. I bought my husband a pair of the Mateo Sport Slides he likes to wear around the house.


SOLE is the best product for your feet

Starting from the beginning, about five years ago I got plantar faciitis on both my feet. Having to deal with the pain while working on feet for 8 hours a day was rough. Almost a year later I found SOLE products through a foot specialist. My life changed and I was cured of this issue within 6 months of using your insoles and sandals every time I was on my feet. Now with these clog style shoes I use for work everyday I feel confident my feet will never have any issues ever again. I highly recommend SOLE to anyone who works on their feet for any length of time. These shoes are made with high quality materials, the pair of sandals I wear only when I'm home I've wearing for 6 years and it's still in great shape. Extremely comfortable and fit very well.


Comfortable and supportive

I bought the Men's District by ReCORK for my grandson who requires orthotics due to extra-wide, flat feet. He absolutely loves the shoes. He doesn't have to have any additional support structures with the built-in footbeds. The contemporary style gives him the opportunity to have support without the obvious "orthotic shoe" look. Unlike previous shoes we've tried, he hasn't experienced any foot pain or fatigue during long wear use. I'm very happy with the quality, value, and durability of these shoes.


Good product

Bought these to use in my bike shoes. While the met pad isn't as pronounced as others, its thinness and support overall makes this a great insole. I've ridden for over an hour with them in the shoes without any pain with them and couldn't say that about the shoes before these insoles.


Nice style/tight fit

I really like these shoes! They look and feel great, and when I wear them I think it helps with my back pain. The only regret I have is that since the shoes are pretty rigid/stiff, I feel I should have bought a half size larger (like one does with sneakers). The fit is true, but the stiffness makes it feel too tight. I still wear them, and enjoy them!


My feet are smiling now

I recently visited the podiatrist 3 weeks in a row for a pain in my left foot right at the heel. They tried inserts, shots, wraps helped a little. But I was kind of shuffling around and not walking the 6 to miles daily as I had in the past. On the last visit one of the young ladies who assisted in my various treatments told me I should check out your website and buy the "Active Thick" version of their insert. I did and I was immediately better. I was so pleased I ordered a pair of your shoes and I am very pleased with them also. I am back to walking 6 to 8 miles per day with no pain. Thanks


Awesome!

These have helped my plantar fascial pain so much! Thank you!


Recovering from metatarsalgia

These insoles are helping my recovery from metatarsalgia. Dr suggested these in August, I took a month off from running and then slowly eased back into the miles. It took about 3.5-4 months to return to my pre injury mileage and the pain is now gone. I also have occasional post tibial flare ups due to flat arches and none of them has occurred since I started using these insoles. Forever a fan and will stick with these insoles.


Best I've found hands down.

I've been wearing these for a month or two now in my work boots, and a pair in my big rubber boots. I'm size 15 almost 16 and these are one of the few arch supports I can wear that actually fits my foot size. These last about a year or so with constant daily usage around the farm. Much easier to get used to than the hard inserts, and I have no arch pain since I started using them years ago when they were made for Redwing. I can't live without them. Does take about two weeks to get your arches used to some real support though, and if your arches are shot, wear them for an hour a day for the first week. Once I got used to them, my arch pain stopped and my knee pain got significantly better.


Great insole

Short of custom-made insoles, this is the best insole I've ever worn. Comfort-wise they are equal perhaps SOLE insoles are more comfortable. Custom insoles provide more arch support. I wear it in tennis and running shoes. 5 stars for comfort, 5 stars for support. Heating and molding is a great way to shape it to your feet. Since started wearing met-pad insoles the pain I used to experience in balls of my feet after playing tennis is pretty much non-existent. I don't have anything negative to say. Great product all around.


Red Sole inserts

I have used SOLE products for about 4 years . They were recommended by a foot doctor. I usually purchase the black SOLE inserts. The shop where I purchased them closed so I used the online site and did the online help for selection . It recommended the red SOLE Inserts because I have pain in the ball of my foot and need arch support. I've been wearing the red inserts for about 2 weeks and they do help with arch support and metatarsal pain. Since I do most of my walking in my neighborhood sidewalks & streets, sometimes I wish I had the added cushioning of the black inserts.


First Time Buyer

I was recommended this brand by my podiatrist. Bought these (my first insole purchase from any company) for the first time, put them in my hikers, and instantly foot pain receded. Every day there was less and less foot pain. until I have not had any problems now for months. I will be a lifetime user for sure!


Better than the old plastic soles!

I was a long time user of SOLE inserts for correction of over pronation associated with flat feet. They have made a huge difference for me as far as foot pain and allowed me to walk and jog comfortably for years. I was so excited to discover the they now have a recycled cork product - it's such a great model to have people return their wine corks to stores for re-use. I find that the new ReCORK soles feel springier and more comfortable that the old soles that I relied upon. I have been using them in my Saucony running shoes for 2 months now and they feel great. I wear size 8 1/2 or 39 shoes and found that the size 7/9 insert fit perfectly without trimming. I hope that more companies will follow this model of using recycled materials to create an excellent product.


Out on walks again

My husband has had foot pain for about 2 years now and it just stopped us from going on our walks. Although he still has some pain, the Active Medium soles have allowed him to get back to walking. He has a pair in both of his shoes and will definitely get more as needed. These slipped into his shoes perfectly after the heat up. After standing in them for the few minutes required to form he knew right away these were going to work. Comfortable enough he could wear them all day. No issues of any kind


Heel pain relief

My heels and ankles were killing me. I tried a pair of these and it relieved my pain almost completely. I saw such great results I ordered three more pairs for my other shoes. I also appreciate that they are eco-friendly.


Highly recommended

Really helped for pronation & knee misalignment. It’s all connected, so great for my low back pain as well. I have wide foot & high arch, the Thin insoles are ideal for most of my shoes & run true to size. I love that the heel is NOT elevated which can be common in other brands. It’s wonderfully comfy & I really appreciate SOLE getting on board with Eco friendly materials.


Overall a great flip

It's now well over a year that I've been wearing SOLE's Balboa flip on a daily basis. The three things that come to mind are: 1) No break-in pain. The straps are soft and comfortable and never caused blisters or pain. 2) The arch support is just right (for me) and has helped to keep my back issues at bay. I used to wear Havaianas and often deal with a sore back. 3) They are surprisingly durable. I usually chew through shoes pretty quickly and wear the outside of the sole. I guess because the back of the sole is sloped up it wears less. All in all I am very happy with them and would easily recommend them to anyone looking for flip flops with some arch support.

SOLE is the best footbed brand

I have been SOLE customer for 15 years I am also a physical therapist and not only use SOLE myself but also recommend to my family and patients. The arch support and the level of comfort helps with any routine walks, runs, work outs, long standing activities and makes it all less painful. I have recommended SOLE to patients with knock knees, pes planus, plantar fasciitis, foot pain and also knee pain and back pain. They are very comfortable and not to forget, durable too.


Great Insoles

I had a foot issue and was awaiting an appointment to get an orthotic made. Since the pain was increasing and I had an upcoming backpack trip, I needed something for the interim period that might alleviate this pain when hiking. I took a chance on some SOLE Active Medium inserts and couldn't be more pleased. When I showed them to my Podiatrist, she was very impressed and told me to continue using them until the orthotics were made. Well, eventually the orthotics arrived, felt extremely uncomfortable, had to be modified several times, and eventually were abandoned. I have since bought 5 pairs of SOLE insoles over the past year and couldn't be happier. They have eliminated my foot pain, are super comfortable, and are very affordable when compared to custom orthotics.


Nice

Purchased these insoles (size 11 U.S. fit is exact), because my $200 pair of Asics AWL size 11 US, were causing extreme pain to my Achilles tendon. I needed a winter shoe and although the shoe fit great at the store when I purchased them, they certainly didn't after the first 10km. I was forced to go up a half size with my shoes because my right toe was feeling cramped. Decided to purchase both the Active Medium and Thick, because I wasn't sure which would be enough to fill in the extra room in my shoe and possibly elevate my foot to keep the back of the shoe from touching the upper rear portion of my foot. Ran 100 km in the Active Medium and my feet started to feel great after the first 20km, almost instantly (I didn't heat fit them to my feet). After 100km, I decide to try the Active Thick and they filled the extra space in the shoe that was needed and elevated my foot ever so slightly. First impression was a full shoe and feeling like I was 1 inch taller. At first, when I put in either insole, they felt lumpy. After about 20km, they tend to mold to your feet and feel very natural. You can, of course, heat treat them to fit, but I wasn't sure I was going to keep them, so I decided to try them, out of the package. I do get Achilles pain once in a while, but this is probably due to my running technique and not the insoles. I use my Active Medium Soles in my summer runners (Mizuno Wave Sky Waveknit 3 in size 10.5 U.S.), which fit me perfect before inserting the Soles and fit snug after installing. 450km now and still great. I'm sure my shoes will wear out before these Soles will; they will be going in my next pair of Asics AWLs. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Initially I found them to be expensive, now not so much because they work.


NOTHING BUT SOLE

I've been wearing SOLE inserts for several years now, and I will admit that I have tried other brands in between. I've always had to ditch the other brands--nothing but SOLE helps my feet with plantar fasciitis pain. I simply put them in my shoes and allow them to mold to shape naturally. These are the most comfortable inserts I've ever used, and I've decided I won't try anything else again.


Goalie Skates

Returning to the ice after COVID, I was suddenly dealing with constant foot pain every time I put my skates on and I tried different things. I’ve been using Medium SOLE inserts in my field hockey turf boots for about 10 years and started wearing a pair in my everyday shoes about two years ago. I decided to try out the Thin, hoping they would fit comfortably in my goalie skates. With the added foot pain in the sole and forefoot, I also tried the met pad for the first time which only took a little getting used to. The Thin soles fit just fine in my skates and have definitely helped the foot pain. I do remove them after every ice time so the skates dry properly and the rivets don’t rust, which is the only issue as it’s a tight fit around the heel and arch, so it can be a little hard to remove them. I worry a bit that the friction will speed up the wear on the skate liner and/or the insole. I’m trying to figure out an easier way to pull it out with a tab or something, but the pros definitely out way that one con.


Saved me from years of pain

Highly recommend the SOLE products. After years of off and on pain on my left foot, a friend recommended SOLE to me and I decided to give it a shot. After only a week of using the Active Mediums, my pain went away. I’ve now been a loyal customer for three years and I have been pain free for three years :)


My Happiness!

I have used SOLE products for a long time. 7-8 Years with one bottom line: COMFORT without PAIN! I have had foot issues since I was 50 years old ! SOLE was the answer! If you are having any foot pain is good for anyone who is approaching a painful problem with one's feet! Best move I have made for my overall health

Sara Christon


These are WONDERFUL!!

I broke my foot many years ago. Years of pain and problems lead me to try the SOLE inserts and FINALLY, I am free of foot, leg and back pain. Thanks to SOLE inserts, I can walk and hike for miles and I'm back to a normal life. I have these soles in all of my shoes and because they're so comfortable, I have purchased them for my family as well. THANK YOU SOLE!!


Great addition to cycling shoes

Put these in my Sidi road shoes. Thin enough to fit well, and a huge improvement in arch support over the stock units. Had to buy a larger size to ensure the arch support fell in the correct spot on my foot, which necessitated a fair bit of trimming to have them fit my shoes. Luckily I could try them on in a local shop, otherwise that trial and error would have been a pain. They’ve been brilliant ever since. Improved stability, power transfer, and no more hot spots or numb toes on longer rides.


Great!

Ive been wearing these insoles for about a month now in my sneakers and Blundstones and they are great! My feet feel supported and I can walk much farther without pain than when I've used Superfeet in the past. Already ordered another pair (Thick) for my hiking boots!


SOLE Footbed

I like the material used. Very comfortable and helps my back pain. Excellent product.


Aussie boots fixed

I had recently replaced my 'Australian' work boots and found them to be painfully uncomfortable compared with my old pair. Assuming that they just needed to be broken in, I bore with it for months. I'd hoped my 12h+ work shifts would break them in and back to the feeling of my old pair. Didn't happen. Nor did trying the old footbeds from my previous boots. I ordered the SOLE footbeds with the most cushioning and the met pad. Had a moment of regret thinking the met pad would be a mistake but a rep coached me to keep the order as is. Essentially the SOLE footbeds have fixed the misery caused by my work boots. I no longer have foot and hip pain from my long shifts. It's been maybe a month now and I'm loving them. Only slight issue is that now my feet are a bit snug against the uppers. A quick tap at the heel moves my toes off the steel toe cap and it's fine. These footbeds have taken away my workboot pains.


Great addition to my rugby boots

I had been experiencing some heel pain during and after playing so decided to give these footbeds a go based on my experience with the Active Thick beds that I have in my work boots. . I've been using the same pair of Active Thick in my work boots for more than 10 years. When my boots wear out, the footbeds go to my new boots. They make a night and day difference in comfort and fighting fatigue from standing on concrete for extended periods. I trimmed the beds to size, heated and formed them to my feet then put them in my rugby boots. Not sure why I was surprised, but they elevated the pain during and after playing. Being able to play without pain certainly elevated my game.


Great product

I purchased these for my pre-teen son, his feet grow so quickly that this is a great cost effective way to provide him with the support that his growing feet need. They have been great and offer support to his high arches! The fit his shoes great and have really help to relieve his foot pain.


Will keep buying them

I’ve got a bunion on one foot and bad ankle on the other. After purchasing these soles years ago, the conditions finally became manageable. I have them in every pair of shoes. Pain free walking is a gift that you owe yourself!


Great for Golf!

I have been struggling with plantar fasciitis so thought I would give the SOLE Active Medium insoles a shot. Game changer! Great support, comfort and full relief of any pain! The fit is perfect and the quality exceptional. Certainly could feel the difference right away and they just get more comfortable every time I wear them!!


Game changer

I've been using SOLE insoles for over a decade. Love them and highly recommend. I use them for plantar fasciitis, and back pain


No More Plantar Fasciitis Pain

I have had plantar fasciitis over 30 years. Treatment has involved many pairs of custom orthotics, numerous steroid injections, and years of debilitating pain. I started wearing SOLE insoles a couple years ago. They are now in every pair of shoes I own. I wear them ALL the time and I'm pain free. To paraphrase James Brown, "I'm a SOLE man!" My wife recently visited a podiatrist for, guess what? Plantar fasciitis! He examined her footwear. She wears Hoka One One shoes which he said were great. She had a new pair of SOLE insoles I had insisted she try. He told her custom orthotics would be no better than the SOLE insoles. After one injection and daily exercises, she is now back on her feet.


SOLE footbeds

Suffering from plantar fasciitis, dealing with huge pain in my heel, until I discovered SOLE footbeds. Got a new pair of boots, the insoles lifted my arch, felt so much better and continues to do so. Incredible incentives on the website and I have recommended them to four of my friends who have purchased them. I have also gotten a second pair for myself. Everyone raves about them. My feet feel better everyday, thank you so much


My Daily Soles

I put soles into just about every pair of shoes I wear because they’ve helped me totally get rid of with chronic ankle/instep and leg pain. The Active Medium are perfect for my day-to-day shoes that I use to walk to and from work.


Perfect Soles for my winter boots!

I put Soles into just about every pair of shoes I wear, and they have helped me totally get rid of chronic ankle/instep and leg pain. I was thrilled to find these wool soles, cozy and perfect for my winter boots!


Game changer

These inserts are the best I have found. All of the SOLE met pad versions have made walking a pleasure for me after years of searching for pain relief.


Excellent Product

As someone who occasionally suffered from foot pain, I needed a more sustainable solution than prescription orthotics that need routine replacement at a very high price. While perhaps not as precise in foot correction as a customized orthotic, the SOLE Active Medium was a perfect solution for me. A very reasonable price for an excellent product by an outstanding, thoughtful company. I can highly recommend these insoles for anyone needing greater support or an alternative to overpriced orthotics. They resolved my foot pain issues and I'm a happy customer for life.


Perfect for flat foot

I have flat feet and this footbed helped me to reduce the pain while wearing for long periods of time. I recommend this footbed as it has microbial and warm wool properties as well as the arch support.


Kickass Insoles

I was originally diagnosed with a fallen arch three weeks before a planned 5 day hike on the Camino in northern Spain. I was new to SOLE insoles but I completed the 120km hike with no knee pain at all. Recently I developed a metatarsal issue and my pedorthist added a little egg shaped bump to reduce the impact in the affected area. Then I ordered these new Met Pad insoles and they are a joy to walk and hike in. Cannot live without them!! Great company and customer service too!! Thanks SOLE!


Fixed my feet

I was a little skeptical for the price, but I was pleasantly surprised. My arches were collapsed from years of flat insoles, so my feet were pretty sore the first couple times I used these. But after a week or so, the pain went away and my feet straightened out. I now can walk and stand for hours without foot pain.


Plantar Fasciitis Relief

I’ve had to deal with plantar fasciitis for years and even purchased expensive orthopedic inserts for $400 a piece. But the condition was never relieved. Always searching for something that worked I stumbled onto the SOLE inserts page. Within a few months of wearing these inserts (Active Thick with met pad) I finally starting feeling relief. Now after a few months of wearing these inserts I can say I have no more plantar fasciitis pain. I ended up buying a pair for all of my shoes so I didn’t need to keep taking them out and putting them in other shoes. Thank you SOLE. For the first time in 7 years my feet have no pain.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I can not write enough good things about my SOLE sandals! They are so comfortable and I no longer have back pain when I wear them. I actually love the men's sandals more but only because the straps are a bit looser than the women's and my foot isn't wide but more rounded on the top. I even have my family buying them and loving them! :)


Absolutely worth it

I had an old pair of SOLE from high school (10+ years ago) that I forgot about. More recently, I'd been experiencing sinus tarsi pain from running/overuse that persisted despite PT, cortisone, and other non-surgical treatments. I decided to dig up the old insoles, and after wearing them for about two weeks, couldn't believe the difference. I decided to buy a second pair so that I could rotate them between runnings shoes and regular street-shoes. Overall, wearing them consistently has probably cut my pain down to 10% of what it was originally. They are true to size and fit into my shoes no problem. I wish I had started wearing them sooner (or never stopped wearing the pair I got in high school)!


Great for golf

Great insole for my golf shoes. I walk the course and these help support my high arches for a pain free round. Great product and value.


Got rid of Metatarsal Pain

Have off and on metatarsal pain and had gotten away from wearing insoles for a bit. Then I started in on a hiking challenge and soon my metatarsal pain returned. Ordered a new set of these and instantly it felt better and after a couple days I was basically pain free. These fit shoes perfectly, have great arch support and you can trim them if needed. Highly recommend!


Great for your feet!

Love the flip as much as my inserts, I wear them around the house when I don't want shoes on, and they are helping my foot/plantar fasciitis pain tremendously. Besides the pain relief, they look great, can't wait to wear them this summer on the beach!


Women’s Mendocino slide support

Very comfortable fit. Purchased to help relieve foot and lower back pain. Works great, full support sandals that are adjustable. Thank you SOLE for your support!


Every Pair of Shoes

I have a very high arches, arthritis in my feet and a tendency to get plantar fasciitis. I have to wear innersoles in my shoes all the time. I have used SOLE for years. They give me the best support and prevent any foot pain. Grateful.


Great Insole!!!

This insole has been a big part of me getting back to normal after some bad heel pain. Sometimes what seems like plantar fasciitis is nerve irritation. That was the case for me and the inserts I had been using since 2009 were irritating the nerve, I started working these inserts into my rotation in mid October. It wasn't long before I relied mostly on these. I have high arches and the Dr. tells me that can give me heel and forefoot pain. These inserts cover all the bases. Now I am on my feet again most of the day and enjoying walks around my village. Next season, I will be hiking again!


Great Insole

I have been using inserts for decades. I have low arches. I have tried MANY different products including $500 custom orthotics. I am also a runner. 20-25 miles per week. Expensive customs wear out. Not unlike any other. It can become a money drain. Off the shelf insoles from various suppliers are very generic. Too spongy, not light weight, not enough arch support and wear out quickly. A friend passed along to me a recommendation from his podiatrist. "SOLE" insoles. I looked over a lot of info from the SOLE website as well as from other sources and decided to try the SOLE Active Medium. SOLE provides a wide variety of insoles, as well as other products, to suit MANY different needs and foot and body designs. This alone separates SOLE from other offerings. It is also very obvious that they have done their due diligence on R&D and have included some very smart and experienced people into the works to develop products for a wide dynamic of people and purposes. I have low arches and a knee that has had cartilage repair and a torn stretched to useless ACL. (Skiing injuries from my youth). The soles obviously won't repair these things but provide support and alignment that allow me to run comfortably and vigorously without pain. I bought my first pair, used them for about 2 months and then bought another pair. All total I have been on them for about 5 months now. I also played Hockey for decades. Skate providers went away from traditional leather outer shells quite a few years ago and adopted moldable outer shells. You warm up the skate in an oven, quickly put them on, lace them up tight and the skate adopts the shape of your foot. Providing a very custom fit. It took a minute but once I got used to them I fell in love with the technology. The EVA base in the Active Mediums is very much similar. I did not put them in the oven I just put them in my shoe and wore them to shape. It took running on them about 10 times until they formed to fit. This wear in period was a bit uncomfortable in the beginning but since then they have been awesome... Now they fit great and are beyond comfortable. They are super supportive, lightweight, and I can trust them to be perfectly in place with every stride. I love the product, I love the price point. Customer service has been excellent. I am absolutely a SOLE customer for life. You might think that I am just a shill for SOLE who is being somehow compensated. I assure you that I am NOT. I'm a very satisfied customer who is simply illustrating my experience with their product. This is a product that I truly need and very much appreciate. I am 61 years old. A life long athlete. This product allows me to continue to enjoy training and competitive athletics... Priceless.... Thank you SOLE


Great support

I have very high arches, narrow feet and plantar fasciitis. I gave been told I am high risk for collapsed arches, told that's very painful, and have been going to physiotherapy for foot and related knee pain. Custom orthotics were quoted at $300 with Insurance only covering maximum 50%. I thought I'd give these a try first! I did not heat fit them as I was worried about getting it right, instead choosing to fit them by wearing. First few days were an eye opener, my toes clenched and I was uncomfortable wearing them for long periods if time. 2-3 hours at once was enough. I am on my feet, running after kids all day at work so I needed more support than drugstore insoles. After wearing them for a week my feet felt so much better at the end of the day! I really needed the extra arch support and my feet have relaxed, no more toe clenching! I will be getting another set for my ski boots and anticipate a much more comfortable downhill ski season this year. 100% would recommend trying these before getting expensive orthotics if you have high arches.


Made a huge difference

I had tried every non surgical / non drug solution for my planter fasciitis without success. I tried SOLE fully expecting it to not to make much of a difference but I was surprised. SOLE has reduced my foot pain by at least 75%. I would say that is a huge win. I was disappointed that the mediums wouldn't work in some of my shoes and so I ordered some thins and the problem is solved. I am totally pleased with my experience with SOLE


THESE WORK

I could not be more happy with both the price and the overall performance of SOLE inserts. I have had issues with my plantar fasciitis for years that have now produced heel spurs. I am close to needing surgery and as a PE teacher and coach I'm on my feet all day! I had custom-made orthotics that just were not helping me get through the day. An athletic trainer friend told me about SOLE. I didn't believe her that at $50- a pair they would work. I was wrong! I noticed a difference after 2 days. I no longer get shooting pain up my leg from my arch issues. I have two pairs of sneakers with SOLE inserts and rotate my shoes daily. What a difference! I have tried everything, trust me, these work! -Jen S. Albany NY PE Teacher and Coach


Foot saver!

I have suffered for a year with plantar fasciitis, and wasn't aware of these inserts until my daughter suggested I give them a try. What a relief! The support they give has remedied my pain and I can now walk distances never considered prior. I am in process of now ordering inserts for all my footwear, they are a lifesaver!


Great product

I am a very active person who needs arch support. I had special orthodics and they were uncomfortable and painful to use. I tried SOLE Active medium a year ago and it made a great difference. The Met Pad is slightly different than SOLE Med but both work well.


Game changer

I have genetic flat feet. I'm 44, and have lived the "strenuous life." Very active - hiker, power lifter, stone mason, former Marine. Over the last 4 years I've developed pttd, and over the last 5 months it's gotten very painful. As someone who can usually physically do whatever I want, having to avoid simple things like stairs has been very difficult physically and mentally. I have tried lace up ankle wrap braces, custom rigid orthotics that cost 1000.00 dollars, special shoes, and been religious about foot strengthening- they all sort of work, but there's always some pain. I have routinely been told "otc" orthotics aren't effective. Regardless on a whim I bought a pair of SOLE insoles, and after I put them in my gym shoes -INSTANTLY - the pain went away almost completely. I bought a second pair for my Danner hiking/work boots, with the same result. I can't wrap my brain around how there can be such an immediate dramatic change, but running up and down my stairs without a second thought or wincing in pain is absolutely amazing. I haven't worn them long, but they seem durable. I hope they hold up, though for this level of regained mobility, I'd buy a new pair every month if I had to. My hope is, as they are clearly relieving the strain on my tibial tendon and over pronation, over time with continued wear and foot strengthening I can reverse some of the damage done.


I think it's working!

I believe these insoles are helping with my metatarsal pain. I have a nerve that is bothering me and impeding my ability to walk. With these soles, I can still enjoy walking because of the excellent support they give my feet. I have been using them for at least a month now and need to put them in every pair of shoes I own.


Relieving pain

My podiatrist recommended this for metatarsalgia. It's relieving the pain and discomfort. I also rested for a month and cut back on the running mileage. The situation is definitely improving, and I know this process will take awhile. The arch support also seems better than my previous insoles. Will be buying more of these.


Life-changing

Before using these inserts, my feet hurt every day, all day long. After a few days of using these inserts, I have zero foot pain. Truly life-changing.


Heaven

I bought these for my grandson who is 12 and his achilles hurt every day all day even if not moving. After the first day he wore them the pain was gone. Thanks to my father for telling me to try them. He has been wearing them for a while now as well. Will definitely be buying more.


Success

I bought these because I have metatarsalgia. They are very comfortable. My pain disappeared quickly and I have not looked back. My gratitude and highest recommendation to SOLE on a high quality product that does what it advertises.


Del Mar Sport Flip

The flip has a metatarsal cushion which definitely improves my comfort. I experienced pain in the metatarsal area of my foot and the flip resolves this issue.


Best slippers

I have previously used Superfeet, and custom orthotics. I tried SOLE, and found that they are as good or better than even the customs. As I am into my 50's, my arches have fallen, and my feet hurt. Occasional bouts of plantar fasciitis also cause me grief. I have put SOLEs in most of my shoes/boots. Depending on the fit of the boot, I have used thin to thick SOLEs with great success, and even improved fit. I also bought "slippers", the SOLE flip flops that I wear in the house as much as I can remember to. These made a huge difference in my foot pain, or lack of. Highly recommend to ease your foot pain.


Met pad

I have used SOLE insoles for years. The met pad is a awesome, a well needed touch to relive pain in the ball of your feet


Great footbed

Great inserts! I have been wearing them now for a month or more. My hard orthotics were uncomfortable. I wasn't able to stand for long periods, which my job requires. My feet were always tired and sore at the end of the day. These are very comfortable and my chronic foot pain has diminished significantly. It's like wearing the right shoe with the right amount arch support. They fit perfectly into any shoe. My old orthotics were very wide and stuck out from my instep stretching the shoe. These basically replace the shoe's original foot bed. I wear a 9.5 shoe and bought a size 9. i will be buying another pair for my hiking shoes but will get a size 10. I can feel the end of the insert in my sneakers. It doesn't bother me or cause any pain but I will get a size bigger and trim if need be. Price is right too considering the price of hard orthotics.


Really improves my day in work boots

I was referred to try non-Rx insoles for plantar fasciitis. Started with the less aggressive ‘Work’ soles. After a while felt I could go with the higher arch of the ‘Active’. Heat-molded them this time. Even less heal pain with these. Can go all day with my feet in work boots. Ordering another pair.


10/10 recommend

Outstanding product I've had plantars fasciitis for years. I stand on hard concrete at work all day and within the first week I could tell the pain and fatigue going away. I've had them maybe 2 months will definitely be buying more. Love the cork and the price is definitely fair as well


Wonderful

They work! They fit into all of my shoes and I no longer have pain from plantar fasciitis! I love the fact that they are made from a renewable product. I will be buying more of these!!


The best insoles available

These are the best insoles available anywhere. I started out using the SOLE DK Signature insoles and switched to these when they were discontinued. All of my SOLE insoles have been great, but these are my favorites. I have them in all of my shoes, boots and running shoes. Since I switched to SOLE from Superfeet I’ve had no more issues with plantar fasciitis, and no foot pain or fatigue. They aren’t cheap but they are worth every penny. Try them. You’ll be glad you did.


Immediate Results

The SOLE insert with met pad has really eliminated my heel and foot pain. I could see a difference the day I put it on. That achy heel and painful feet feeling is gone. Thank you SOLE.


Pain Relief!

SOLE was recommended to me by a friend, after confiding in her about my recent diagnosis of plantar fasciitis. I purchased these to wear around the house to help with the pain, and they have been life changing! Finally I have supportive, perfect fitting sandals that have made walking painless and has helped me make great progress in healing! Thank you SOLE!

Supportive Sandals

I had foot surgery 3 years ago and have been wearing SOLE insoles ever since. This is not your regular flip flop. The sandals have excellent support and look good too. I can wear them all day and have no pain on my feet.


SOLE inserts

Three family members use the SOLE medium in our sneakers, we've had them for at least 3 years. I had heel pain and they were recommended by a Doctor. Since using the SOLE inserts I no longer have any pain. They are comfortable and fit well. I certainly will keep using them, as will my husband and son. Thank you, Cheryl


Worth the purchase

I have collapsed arches from pregnancy and these insoles help a lot to support my arches and relieve pain and discomfort while I get back into shape. Glad I brought these and going to purchase more.


Game changer

I have been wearing the Performance Wide Medium in my work shoes for over a month now, and they have helped my foot pain at the end of the day. I am 57 years old and average about 15000 steps a shift, so I needed the help. The only drawback is this model does make a significant weight increase to the shoe. I just put my Active Wide Medium into my New Balance walking shoes. Within my first walk I knew this was a massive improvement to the performance of these shoes. They give the same feel as the thick model, without taking away from the shoe’s cushioning and do not add a noticeable amount of weight. I am buying 2 more pairs right away. If you are looking to try SOLE, I think that the Active Medium is the best place to start.


Best sandals ever!

These are the best sandals I have ever worn. I wear them all day everyday (indoors in winter). Because of these sandals, I don’t have pain in my arches, Achilles or calves (which I usually do). The material is amazing, not sweaty or hot, and they handle water like a dream! I’ve worn this model of sandal for over 6 years and will continue to repurchase them as long as possible.


Sturdy and Looks Great!

I recently bought my second pair of Mateo Sport Slides. I love the comfort and support these sandals offer, and they look great, too. My first pair lasted over two years of wear (almost daily 8 months out of the year), being hosed off and tossed in the wash machine a couple of times because they were mucked up while I worked in the garden. These sandals are a value given how sturdy they are while looking fashionable while eliminating my back pain.


Best flip ever

I have high arches and suffer from severe nerve pain in both feet. Since I started wearing SOLE Catalina Sport flips 10 years ago, my pain has disappeared. I put them on as soon as I get out of bed and wear them all day when I can. I have different shoes for work and walking but I have worn my SOLE flips on my hour long walk in the morning and they are great. They mold to your feet and provide firm but comfortable support to your arch. They are very well made and last forever. The only reason I have purchased new ones is because I wanted a new color or I got my white ones really dirty doing yard work. I still wear my first pair purchased in 2010. I hope they expand their line into athletic shoes because they are a great company with great products. I called customer service because they were only carrying black. They explained the supply chain issues they were experiencing and then they sent me an email months later letting me know they had new colors in stock and gave me a coupon to use. Outstanding customer service.


Fantastic!!!!

The SOLE Thin with metpad has been a game changer for me!! I’m a pronator who experienced back and hip pain when walking. I’ve tried every shoe you can imagine with no sustained relief. The SOLE Thin insert with the metpad has made a HUGE difference in resolving pain issues. I definitely will be ordering more. Thanks SOLE!!!!!!


smiling feet

I needed quality XL size insoles to stop my foot pain. SOLE was a home run for me. Easy to buy and exactly what I needed. Life is good when you find a company that helps supply what you need without a hassle. My feet thank me everyday.


Foot Pain

Occasional foot pain was bothering me. I puchased the insole and it has helped tremendously. I can now enjoy golf and long walks with no discomfort


Metatarsal Pad insoles

I bought this product because I had pain on the ball of my foot and the Dr. Suggested a metatarsal pad insole. I have been able to hike again without pain. I am so thankful I bought these! My runner is size 7 and the insole is a size 6 and fits perfectly into my runners and even into my Toms.


Game changer

After not being able to run for months this year due to the dreaded neuroma, I am excited to say I am running pain free. I couldn’t understand why numerous pairs of shoes did not eliminate the pain. Odd to say, it’s not about the shoe - but more about the sole! The soles fit perfectly in my shoes, no blisters, just ready to go. I love the cork material, a sustainable product, and a quality product too!

Good for plantar fascia

I have diagnosed plantar fasciitis in my right foot. Especially, I have heel spurs. I have used two different brand footbeds (Dr. Scholl's and Trek Support) for my injury. My PT specialist suggested putting a SOLE brand footbed. When I put on it in my regular shoes and wear it, it gave pressure on my foot arch a lot and felt really different immediately. It did not give me any pain in my heel spur. I used it only for seven days. So far, it is really positive. I just ordered three more to put in my all shoes (two Thin for tennis shoes, one Medium for working shoes).

Comfortable!

Love the Bajas. Have 3 pairs of them and find them to be the best fitting and most comfortable of all my SOLE flips (have 9 pairs total of various models). I have fallen arches, plantar fasciitis and wear orthotics. I can wear SOLE all day without pain. Have got 3 pairs for my husband and a pair for my sister too!


Relief

I was recently in a lot of foot pain at the ball of my foot and was informed by doctor that it was matatarsal and to see a foot specialist. Without medical coverage this can cost a min of 500$ for appointment and orthotics… I found this company and decided to try them… I get a lot of relief from my Active Medium with met pad insoles and would highly recommend them!!


Everyone needs it.

Great product, Fits my needs for the arch support, eliminating knee pain. I actually got 2 pairs: one I use at home and one is always with me.


No pain anymore

These are the ONLY flips I can wear. I have problem feet /back surgery/osteoporosis and I have no pain in these flips !! The best.


wearing for years

I used the Active Thick for work for about 6 years for work shoes as a server and in winter boots, now I use them for walking shoes too. I get pain in my heel when I don't have enough cushion so I like these best for walking in, especially for long periods. With the right shoes I can walk for many hours with no pain, even on harder surfaces. Not as good as the Medium for running in because they are more rigid, but much better for when I'm not running. I need to size up tight-fitting shoes by a half size to allow these to fit as my usual size 9 runners made me feel like I was losing circulation with these in them but feels great with a 9.5. My boots still fit them fine with a 9. Immediate improvement when switching to a fresh set and then gets better in the next couple wears as it molds to the foot.


So comfy, even for "hard-to-fit" feet

These flip flops are amazing! It's my second pair (in a different color). They take a couple days to get used to the support, but it's just what I need! My feet are VERY difficult to find sandals or shoes for. A bunion on 1 foot plus high-aches. My feet hurt everyday. Not saying these completely alleviate the pain, but they greatly reduce it! Thank you, SOLE. I'm a convert!!

Joanne Bonney


Love these shoes!

These are great supportive shoes for everyday. They are very comfortable and light. You wouldn’t think you are wearing supportive flip flops they are just like regular everyday shoes - but they stop foot pain and plantar fasciitis. These are the only flip flops I wear and have worn for several years. Definitely worth the money!


Thanks SOLE!

The Mateo Sport Slide is very comfortable and is helping my foot pain on the balls of my feet. I've been wearing them much of the day for about a month. It fits pretty well, though it's a bit long for my foot. I usually wear a size 8. It's light, which is nice, so my feet don't get tired when wearing them. I would like it to be available in other colours though, especially a light, white or cream colour for the summer months. Thanks SOLE!


Solved my knee pain.

The SOLE products were recommended by my physiotherapist for pain in the knee and the ankle. Not only do I have the insoles, I have 2 pairs of slides and I find them most comfortable and so convenient to wear both in the summer and in the winter inside.


Great inserts!

These things are outstanding. I wish I had discovered them years ago. They allow me to run longer distances and with less fatigue and pain. They are also very well made and durable.


Everyone need it.

Great product, Fits my needs for the arch support, eliminating knee pain. I actually got 2 pairs: one I use at home and one is always with me.


No pain anymore

These are the ONLY flips I can wear. I have problem feet /back surgery/osteoporosis and I have no pain in these flips !! The Best


Sooooo comfortable!

Comfort and support in one! I wear these inside from when I wake up to when I go to bed. Helps with my lower back, knee, and ankle pain. I can’t live without them!!!!


Awesome product

The Active Thin insoles are incredibly useful for me. I started to use them 7 years ago after a piece of advice from a podiatrist as I am having a mild flat-foot and I was getting sole pain after walking or running. Since I used them, my problem disappeared completely. I am using them in all my shoes, whether classic ones or sports ones. I usually remove the original footbed and replace them with my SOLE insoles and once they are in place, I am comfortable with no walking issue. I did not have to mould them as I believe they should maintain their original curve to support the foot arch. At least this worked for me. I have bought 8 pairs up till now to cover all my shoes. Highly recommended product.


Great support and comfort!

I had pain in my foot for years. Nothing seemed to help it until my doctor recommended this insert. I wear them for every workout, and walking and hiking. My foot no longer hurts. I recommend them highly!


Helps My Plantar Fasciitis

I recently bought my second pair of SOLE Active Thick insoles. Plantar fasciitis causes me a lot of pain in my right heel. Along with proper stretching and ice, supportive and well-cushioned insoles help keep discomfort at bay. The thinner SOLE insoles support my foot in the proper position to avoid trouble, but these are even better because they cushion that tender area that gets battered with every step. I just wish I had a pair for every pair of shoes I own!


comfortable

I was pleased to find these Catalina sandals that also can provide the metatarsal support recommended to me by podiatrist this summer when experiencing foot pain. Found these to be very comfortable, enjoyed just slipping them on first thing in the am and hanging out with them. Had a momentary issue with strap rubbing one area, didn't wear for a few days, and now just fine. So glad to have a supportive option for summer wear.


Great insoles!

I got my SOLE insoles recently and love them! They help reduce the leg and knee pain I was getting from walking and hiking, and now I don’t go out without them.


Great for athletic shoes

I bought performance insoles recently to add to my other insoles . They provide excellent support helping to keep planter fasciitis and Achilles pain at bay. I have these insoles in my crossfit, tennis and running shoes. My athletic shoes always fit great with the insoles inserted. I go up a half size in shoes for a better fit.


great support for tired, achy feet

I bought a pair of SOLE flip flops years ago at the office where I got fitted for orthotics and wore them everywhere until they finally wore out. I wear orthotics in my shoes for bunions and back pain. I ordered 3 pairs of SOLE flip flops recently as I wear them for house shoes as they are far more comfortable than anything else I have worn. They look nice, are so comfortable that I look forward to putting them on after walking 18 holes at the golf course. The fact that they are made from algae blooms make me even feel better about my purchase.

Restaurant worker

I wear these for work and I stand for long hours. It will form to your feet but still provides the support. The material is good too!! Durable material and cool designs! Would recommend the met pad for problematic foot people like myself!! It helped with the other leg pains bad support caused to knees, ankles, or hips.


These Work!

Super. I will definately buy another pair. These orthotics fit perfectly into my running shoes. I didn't even need to adjust them! I have recommended this product to several people already. It has relieved the pain I had which was related to a bunion forming. I can wear them all day and my feet feel great after wearing them.


Changed Everything

Attn: Fellow foot pain sufferers! I have for too many years, purchased prescribed shoe inserts at the cost of $300/pair plus and they never seemed to change the game. Let's face it, your feet grow and the prescribed inserts are supposed to be replaced every two years. That's $150/year for not much gain on the pain. I was just about to replace a pair (now $400 pandemic price) when I happened to walk into an REI store and was looking at shoes and talking about my feet and the salesperson recommended SOLE Performance. I will never buy another prescribed insert, full stop. My shoes feel completely different now. From the moment I pulled these warmed inserts from the oven and slipped them into my work boots I knew, this was/is the answer and at $60/pair a tremendous savings. After the oven treatment they formed to my feet and offered instant comfort, arch support and my general foot pain is diminished to an amazing degree. I now have 4 pairs in different shoes and could not be happier. At this price point I no longer have to switch one pair from shoe to shoe, I can now just slip on a pair and walk out the door. The comfort, form fit and sense that my feet are being hugged is invaluable, add to that I am recycling cork and it's a win all the way around. Thank you SOLE and REI salesperson for a life changing moment..


Customer - on my feet 12- hours a day!!

Had horrible pain in my heel-(tried everything) went to Physical Therapy and he recommended these. The best insole ever- have had about a month and from day one- so comfy-awesome insoles- will be ordering more really soon.


Just what I needed

I have very flat feet and tried out these books to help with my walking and some pain I have in my left ankle. I've had these for about a month and wear them most days and they've really helped in how I walk and how my feet and ankles feel. The leather is very stiff and has taken a while to soften up, and it rubbed against my legs a lot at first. But besides this, I'm very pleased with these boots.


Life saving insole

Love this insole. I’ve got a bad case of metatarsalagia and have been on the hunt for non-surgical relief without having to completely replace my sneakers, dress shoes, casual shoes, boots, running shoes and cycling shoes. This insole solved that problem. Easy to swap between shoes but always providing the net relief I need. I love the higher heel cup, the moment you put it in the shoe and lace it up you can feel your heel supported and hugged without being too tight. I cannot recommend the Active Medium with met pad enough!! If you have foot pain, pick a set up and watch the pain become more manageable and hopefully go away!


Love my insoles !

I was experiencing a lot of pain in the balls of my feet after months of long hours on my feet in steel toe work boots. Due to covid 19 I have been unable to see my doctor so I took it upon myself to do some research which in which it was apparent I needed insoles with met pads so I order the active thick with met pads and they have made all the difference in the world. I would highly recommend these insoles :)


Awesome flips

This is my second pair; I have high arches the the sport flip allows me to walk without pain.


Great for Morton’s neuroma

I was hesitant buying the footbed with the built-in met pad in case the pad wasn’t large enough or in the right place for my Morton’s neuroma. I am happy to report that the built-in pads are just right, and I can wear the footbed with no pain. They also fit my shoes perfectly.


Great pads

I now have 3 pairs of these for my shoes and 2 pairs for my husband. These are fantastic relief for foot pain, very comfortable and hold your foot in place without movement


Wonderful

SOLE insoles are the only thing that have helped my plantar fasciitis. I have been using them—mainly the Active Thick—in all of my shoes for over a year now. I highly recommend them to anyone with foot pain.


Amazing Foot Support

My first pair of cork footbeds. I put them in my Rockports and have an amazing combination of foot support. I also wear the SOLE footbeds in my Dunnam Battery Park Shoes to help keep the pain away. I love them and absolutely recommend them.


Great option

My experience of getting and trying these insoles was exemplary. They do not work for me. I have flat feet and am having trouble with metatarsal pain. The purchase through refund was completely painless - you can't go wrong to give them a try. The insoles appear to be very well made and they fit surprisingly well into my wide toe box zero drop footwear.


Living Pain Free

I suffer with plantars fasciitis and as long as I wear these insoles with met pad support, my foot pain is gone. I have been using SOLE insoles for 4-5 years. They are great in any of my shoes. They fit perfectly and are so comfortable. I don't even notice them in my shoes. You have nothing to lose except for the pain! I highly recommend buying these insoles for anyone with foot pain or even if you don't - an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!


Helps a lot

Been using my insole now for a few weeks and it has helped a lot with my planter fasciitis. I do a lot of walking and it has been quite painful lately and I needed to try something to help with the pain. These have been amazing and I have now ordered a pair for all my hikers and work boots.


Awesome flippy floppy’s

These are by far the most comfortable sandals in the world. I left them for a few other pairs that just didn’t live up, and had me crawling back for a new pair of SOLEs. The have a ton of support, which takes away any of my lower back pain when standing or walking around all day. I’d highly recommend them!


Best insoles!!

I have been using SOLEs for the past six years and they are the best insole! I have them just about every pair of shoes I have. They helped with my knee pain and extend out the time until I needed knee surgery again. The cork makes the insole very comfortable.


Great product!

These are my favorite insoles ever. The only product that relieves my plantar fasciitis pain. Thanks SOLE!


Purchased for Son w/ Severs

I purchased these for my son who has been dealing with Severs for a long time now. He said they seem to help lesson the pain and he does not complain about his feet hurting after participating in various activities as often as he did before wearing the insoles.


Great Product

I have noticed vast improvement with my Achilles pain after using my SOLE inserts!


Good quality, thick and supportive sole

I have been wearing these Active Thick insoles for about 5 years now. They're my go to. I work on concrete floors in a retail setting so it's extremely hard on shoes. But these are amazing. I used to pay upwards of 400 dolllars for custom fit orthotics but tried these at a fraction of the cost and honestly, they last longer than my orthotics did. They offer amazing support and if you suffer from foot pain, or plantar faciitis, trust me and try these. You will not regret it. I recommend the Active Thick insoles as I have tried 3 other types of thinner ones. These ones just feel better. I tried the met pad ones this time as I usually get the ones without and I love them honestly. Will definitely buy again!


Knee pain

I bought this sandal because of knee and heel pain. I originally purchased a pair from my physiotherapy office, helped with Plantars Fasciitis. Now with having both knees needing replaced and heel tendinitis. The podiatrist suggested a sandal with a wedge and good support. I only wear sandals all year round and need to replace my indoor ones. I tried so many orthopedic sandals and these once were the best. I even ordered the mules and another sandal. Love the footbed, can get wet and still like brand new.


Can hike forever!

I bought the Active Thick with Met Pad insoles to use in my hiking boots. We do lots of hiking around where we live and also in the mountains and I always suffer from sore feet and can never do two days in a row. After putting these insoles in my hiking boots, I can hike for several hours and getting out the next day is no problem - I have no pain from the day before. I have bunions and mortons neuroma and these insoles have taken away the pain I used to have!


No more foot pain

I put the Active Medium with Met Pad in my indoor workout shoes to see if it helped with my foot pain and occasional numbness. It took a few days to get used to them as my foot was forming them but after that - they have worked great. I no longer dread doing my indoor workout! I have no more pain in my feet.


Walking on Clouds

If you want to feel like you are "walking on clouds".....this is the flip flop for you. I completely forgot I had foot pain(corns) when I slid into these shoes. Soft, flexible with just enough form....heaven. Wore them for 2 hours the first time and the next day for 6 hours....now that's comfortable. The soft "spongy" form fitting base provides all day comfort. I wear them as slippers indoors and sandals outdoors. This is my 4th pair of SOLE Flips and I love them.


I Live In These Things

My wife bought me my first pair in 2014 for Mexico and I wore them almost every day until they wore out in 2021. As soon as I got home from work they went on and my back started feeling better right away. I stopped working in 2016 so they got constant use after that. I swear by them! They really help my back pain, sometimes completely, and are so comfortable. They improve circulation in my feet and eliminated leg cramps after exercise. I even walk my dog 2-3km each day in these unless it’s raining (I have SOLE insoles in my walking shoes too) but then they go back on as soon as I get home. My new pair are almost exactly the same and are molding to my feet nicely. I hope they last as long and work as well as the first pair!


SOLE arch support insoles

One foot has a fallen arch as the result of an ankle injury a few months back. It was suggested to me by an athletic trainer to try the SOLE product before going the route of seeing a foot doctor. This might mitigate the pain in my ankle and across the top of my foot, and on the inside of my foot. There was also considerable swelling on the ball of the foot causing some minor numbness. I have been wearing this product for a month or so and can attest to the fact that the pain is negligible and most days the swelling is much decreased, which also lessens the numbness. It is by far the best insole I have ever used...very comfortable. In fact, I am going to order two more pairs for other shoes. Once you warm the insole, slide it into a pair of shoes, and step into the shoe, the insole is definitely shaped to your foot but also then seems to be shoe specific. Thank you for making such a good and affordable product.

So wonderful to be able to wear flip flops again

Having problems with my back and with plantar fasciitis, I hike and have five acres to look after. So back and foot pain was really hard to deal with. Years ago I had got my first pair of SOLE footbeds for pronation and they fixed my pronation which in turn ended my knee pain which threatened to end my hiking. I have a lot of faith in the SOLE product,. Now SOLE is first place I look when I have problems. Two days ago I climbed crossover pass almost 2000 meters of gain 20 km with SOLE inserts and my body feels fine today, I wear the flip flops around the property I am constantly gardening, mowing, pruning, etc and I feel great, by the way I am in my 70’s . Thanks to SOLE I don’t have to slow down


Great product, Narrow

I really love these insoles, however, even though I ordered the right size they aren"t wide enough in the toe portion of my shoe and I often find my toe slipping off the side of the insole which causes some discomfort. The insole itself however has greatly balance out other pain that I was previously experiencing. I recommend ordering a larger size and trimming down if you have wider shoes or feet. otherwise great product. I've been wearing for a few months now with improved walking distance every day.


Like magic

My son's feet were hurting really bad after track season started and we were referred to a foot specialist who suggested SOLE. So glad he did because within one day of using Sole, my son was able to run again without much pain. We have only using SOLE for about 6-7 months and just had to buy a 2nd set but my son loves them as he has no pain when using these!!

No Problem

I would get discomfort and pain after standing all day for work. Since I started wearing SOLE Softec Ultra liners, I don't notice my feet at all. Not having to worry about foot pain is great!


Perfect for my work shoes!

I’m a paramedic on a busy 911 service so I’m on my feet a lot. I purchased these for my work shoes because I was having horrible left foot pain to the point I was wondering if I had a stress fracture and needed to see a doctor. I placed these in my shoes as soon as they arrived and the difference has been phenomenal! I no longer have pain. I believe a lot of my issue was coming from a lack of support for my arches and these insoles provide the missing link. I wouldn’t be mad if it was slightly more “cushy,” but it’s great support and I love that I’m not in pain anymore. Thank you for helping me take care of my feet!


Huge improvement

I got these footbeds because I have incredibly flat feet and I get a lot of foot pain on my road bike. These are perfect! They give just the right amount of support and cushion. My knees track straight now instead of pronating. I'm using these in Shimano RC9 shoes and they fit perfectly.


Most Comfortable Sandals

I have had problems with foot pain for years and the SOLE products has brought me much relief. I have 4 pairs of SOLE slides and unless it is snowing or unless I am going to church - I am wearing them. I use them on dry land and at the pool. Thank you


Husband was skeptical and now loves them

I already love this brand but my husband was skeptical. He was having knee pain with his new expensive work boots and wanted to buy another pair so I ordered him these inserts and he's great. Knee pain is gone and now he loves them.


Walking on air

Lifestyle Medium SOLES: I purchased these SOLES a few months ago since I have a flat arch and recurring heel pain. The medium support gives me enough room to wear with dress shoes or active wear, and the sole leather color blends well with almost any color of shoe. It fits like a glove, especially after molding the sole to fit my arch. It is support without effort, like walking on air, and I will probably be fitting my other shoes with more of these ...


Combining Firm Support & Comfort

The Active Medium Met Pad SOLES are great. Firm, comfortable support with underpinning touchpoints throughout the sole of my feet. I use it mostly for recreational footwear since I have flat arch and pain develops with daily walks. But not anymore ! I am considering getting the thicker version for longer walks & hikes. l like smooth material, even without socks you won't know you're wearing them. Overall, great support & comfort.


Great flip flops

Great flip flop works well. It solved any arch pains I had I’ve been using SOLE products for the last 6 years very comfortable


Incredible Flips

My first SOLE flips were recommended by a local orthopedic store to help with my insole and heel pain. I wore those steady each summer for 6 years. I’ve had these for the summer of 2021 and they are as awesome as the last ones. Raised arches, comfortable fit and long life is why I bought more. Well worth the investment.


Catalina flip flops

I bought these flip flops as I have heel spurs and was in a lot of pain when walking. Have been wearing these for over a month and love the support and look of these and they fit perfect. They are well made and worth the money as I find them very comfortable and the pain in my foot has lessened so much that I wear them in the house and outdoors! I would highly recommend these for anyone suffering any foot pain,


Comfortable Sandals

I usually can't wear a flip flop style sandal, with the thong between the toes, but this sandal is very comfortable. The thong strap does not rub, and there seems to be enough support in them to prevent the pain I get from metatarsalgia. I ordered a pair for my son, and he is happy with them too.


Foot pain

These slides are comfortable, and fit true to size. They offer support and allow me to find relief from foot pain and swelling in my foot during the day. I like them so much I have one pair for inside and one for outside!


Incredible reduction I'm foot pain

The foot supports I bought are simply amazing. I work as a mechanic for heavy injection molding machines so I'm on my feet all day carrying heavy parts, driving bolts using my legs and feet for leverage and jumping and climbing onto machines. It put a lot of pressure on my feet and I would go home to pounding, swelling feet every day. After I tried these, it was instantly better with the burning pain replaced by only soreness as my feet adjusted to the mold. After about 2 weeks of my feet adjusting to the pads all my foot pain is gone and I go all week without them burning, swelling or hurting so bad they cause a limp anymore. Overall an amazing product especially for the price

Flip flops

Love this flip flop! Have bunion and metatarsal issues and this flip flop really helps me to be able to stand/walk with much less pain. I have 7 pairs of them.


Excellent foot bed

I have been using these footbeds for years now. They fit both my shoes and my feet perfectly and are very comfortable. The arch shape is exactly right for my foot and allows me to stand and walk without pain. The material used to make the footbeds is the right combination of flexible and rigid. An all around good footbeds for me.


Helped plantar fasciitis pain

I've used the SOLE inserts before and have loved them, but recently have developed new plantar fasciitis pain which the inserts did not seem to be helping as much. For my next pair I tried out the inserts with the met pad and wow did it make a difference! I actually can wake up and walk easily without pain in the morning. Highly recommend!

Game changer

These custom heat-molded insoles are by far the best product that I'm aware of for my collapsing arches and uneven pronation. In fact, a shoe expert in North Carolina recommended them when I was attempting to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2016 (but was having a lot of ankle and hip pain and didn't know if I could continue). After I got SOLE insoles, I was able to backpack another 1,500 miles with none of the same pain I'd had. Now, after a few years of wear (and many more miles of use), that pair wore down and I ordered these for everyday urban use, and they're just as amazing. I feel so much relief, all the way up to my neck, when I wear these. It's well worth the few extra dollars for these. I wish more podiatrists and sports retailers knew about just how much of a game changer SOLE heat-molded insoles can be. Thank you SOLE! - Ben (Pittsburgh, PA)

Ahhhhhh!

Love these! Comfortable and good looking. Been wearing SOLE sandals over a year now and they are worth the extra price over cheap flip flops and sandals. Glad I got this flip flop style to add to my collection. The met pad makes a difference for me when it comes to alleviating foot pain from chronic osteoporosis and arthritis issues. And they wear well too. Been to the beach and all over wearing these beauties. Good quality material. True to fit. Purchased black but there were other cute color choices too.


SOLE inserts

I purchased this product after a suggestion from a podiatrist nurse recommended them. I suffer with metatarsalgia, bunions and fallen arch. I love these inserts. I was in constant pain. I had difficulty walking and standing because of the pain. With these I am pretty much pain free. I even feel relief from my back , leg and hip pain. They help align everything. Highly, highly recommend. I am on myfeet for 10 to 12 hours daily. I wish I would have had these inserts long ago. I have them in all my work shoes and also my everyday shoes. Love them!!!

Very comfortable

I purchased these flips in June, and find them very comfortable. I wanted something I could walk into to go out to the garden, and kick off when I was done. They 're even comfortable to drive in. I have plantars faciatis and knee arthritis so I needed proper support. The cork footbed is very helpful and I am experiencing less foot and knee pain. I have even work them all day out running errands, and have much less knee pain than before.


Love SOLE products!

Excellent orthotics that help with chronic back pain, and always help if I get plantar fasciitis (from not using them). I've sworn by SOLE for the past 20 years; very comfortable from the start for my high arches. Excellent, durable products!


Quick relief

I have been using SOLE inserts for almost 2 months for planter fasciitis. I experienced immediate improvement. While the issue still remains, the pain is tolerable and getting better each day. I have now purchased several pairs to replace other inserts for the same issue several years ago. SOLE inserts really do help.


Great value, great product.

Always had issues with flat feet, requiring some form of support. These insoles were perfect for my run racing flats and immediately remedied the pain and blisters I was getting. I will be coming back for more pairs!


Thank God for SOLE

I have flat feet and mild bunions with foot/back pain relieved by orthotics. However it is hard to find flip flops that accommodate orthotics. I bought a pair of SOLE flip flops years ago and they are my go to summer shoes and will be my indoor shoes all year. The fact that they are more eco-friendly is an added bonus and I recommend these sandals to family and friends.


Awesome flips

This is my second pair; I have high arches the the sport flip allows me to walk without pain.


SOLE is number one

SOLE has delivered where others have failed. I have had foot issues for most of my life. One of my major problems is supination. Most insoles address overpronation. SOLE takes care of both. I have been using Performance Medium with Met pad (cork) for about 6 weeks. The medium works great in a pair of shoes I have that are very roomy. I then ordered 2 more pair in the Thin Performance for shoes where I needed a little more toe wiggle. My balance has improved and the achilles heel pain in my right foot is gone. I only wish I had discovered SOLE insoles years ago.


I can count on SOLE

I got my first pair of SOLE inserts maybe 10 years ago. I teach motorcycle riding, and when I do that, I'm walking about eight miles a day on pavement, and I have to wear boots. I got my first pair of SOLE inserts then, and what a difference they made. I actually felt like doing something other than sitting after teaching. A few years later I ended up with surgery for a Morton's Neuroma, and the doctor would tweak other inserts for me to use. Those worked for a little while, but I've had issues for a while with a metatarsal as a result of the surgery. Wearing any shoes that aren't made for problem feet doesn't work. Ahead of an important motorcycle event where I had to dress for the period, I purchased a pair of high top Converse, which I thought I'd wear once for the photo and that would be it. I purchased the Active Thin with Met Pad for the shoes. Perfect! I wore them throughout the week for the whole event and had no foot pain or discomfort. I never thought I would be able to wear shoes like that, but thanks to SOLE inserts, I can.


Husbands feet are happy now

I purchased these for my husband who was having pain in ball of foot. He has not had any pain in that area or his entire foot since the first day of use. He loves these insoles!


Pain relief!

My husband developed plantar fasciitis; we stopped in a local running store and the owner highly recommended the Active Thin inserts. What a difference they have made for him! It takes a few days but with the inserts, stretches and exercise his feet are so much better. When I woke up one more with my feet feeling cramped and on fire, he told me to try the same inserts. Within two days, my pain was significantly less (plus no more bare footing for me). We both have custom inserts from our foot doctor, these Active Thin inserts work so much better for us and last several months. We’re definitely sold!

Significant improvement in foot pain

These sandals are great for anyone who needs a metatarsal pad for comfort. The feeling is night and day compared to standard flat sandals which caused unbearable pain. Time will tell how durable they are, but so far I am very happy with them.


Walking Freedom

I have been wearing the Sport Slide for years. I suffer from Morton’s Neuroma in both feet as well as have very low arches. I am unable to walk without pain unless I wear shoes with orthotics. The Sport Slide is very comfortable, has good support & allows me miles of pain-free walking. They last years and I will continue to buy them .


Awesome

I was having issues with my plantar fasciitis especially after spending hours on my bicycle. I decided to try the SOLE Active Thin with Met Pad. It was very easy to cut to size and mild the insoles to my feet. They seemed to be well made. I placed them in my cycling shoes. It was odd at first but I became accustomed to them. Within a few rides, I no longer experience any pain on long rides. Truly recommend.


Foot problem corrector!

I had been having bad foot pain in my big toes when I went to bed after running. I have a high arch, and the podiatrist recommended a metatarsal pad, which helped a little. After adding these insoles to my shoes, toe pain and hip pain went away. I deleted the extra metatarsal pad since these had them built in (a plus for me). Pretty great, and a surprise as I had just accepted that the pains were to be expected with my advancing age (55). I've been using the Performance Thin with Metatarsal pad for about a month now, and it took about a week for me to normalize with them. They didn't have any break in period per se, they just worked fine out of the box. Had to do a little trimming to fit my shoe exactly, but no big deal with a pair of scissors. The cork base is good, and appears to be very durable (I have plenty of cork shoes that last well). The rigid nature seemed like it would be an issue for shoe flex, but I haven't noticed anything different. Glad to be back in the happy zone and out of the pain zone!


Able to Hike Again

I started using SOLE footbeds three months ago and couldn't be happier. My bunions and flat feet used to get so painful from skiing, hiking, and long walks. I put the Active Medium with Met Pad in my shoes and never looked back. I was able to hike 20 km a day, several days in a row, with zero foot pain or discomfort. Before using these a 20 km hike would have had me in tears and out of commission for a few days. I did find the thick pad took a few days to fit properly to my foot but it was so worth it!


Super comfy, good support

My feet are impossible to find a comfortable, supportive fit for. But these sandals fit great! I have bunions and high arches. Often experience sore feet and sometimes arch cramping. When I first tried them on, they felt a little lumpy. But turns out, they are lumpy in all the right places. They provide me great support and keep my feet pain-free! My only complaint is that when my feet sweat or get wet, the sandals feel a bit slippery (where foot meets sandal, not where sandal meets the ground). Love them and highly recommend to others. Wish they came in more colors (light or dark brown, teal).

Comfortable flips

I wanted a pair of flip flops that could tolerate being worn at the beach and near water, but offered more arch support than cheap foam ones. (The cheap foam ones give me very bad back pain by the end of the day.). I ordered the Balboa and the Baja. First impressions were that they seemed well made and solid. I was unsure about the lower heel. I'm very happy with both pairs - they have solid enough soles that they keep their form while walking over gravel terrain, they slide on easily (Balboa seem to be slightly looser than the Baja), they can tolerate sand and water. And of course, best of arch the support is very comfortable and my back certainly doesn't ache by day's end. The lower heel is quite nice while walking, despite seeming odd while standing. I would happily order again, and refer the brand to anyone looking for more support than cheap foam flips.


Perfect for morton's neuroma

I was leery buying the foot bed with the built-in metatarsal support. I have never had any luck with shoes with built-in supports, so I was afraid these wouldn't work. (I generally buy a regular foot bed and add the support.) I've been wearing these for weeks, and they are wonderful! They are very comfortable and I have had no pain.

Kara Jorgensen


helped relive bottom foot pain

After carrying twins my foot shape changed. Barefoot shoes fit great but I needed more support. My arched were screaming by the end of the day. These helped relieve my foot pain right away.


The definitive answer to foot pain

After spending over $600 on custom orthotics that were horribly uncomfortable and frankly, brutal for athletics. Hundreds at the physio to sort out a neuroma and tendinitis- THESE INSOLES have me my sport life back! My job requires serious fitness and on my feet for hours- I have little to no pain thanks to these insoles. I am gobsmacked at the quality. if you are on the fence- GO FOR IT

Good for planar faciitis

I ordered these for my running shoes after dealing with PF for a few weeks. I first got shoes with more cushioning/support with marginal benefit. The insoles fit perfectly inside my shoes right out of the box. For reference, they’re in a pair of NB Fresh Foam 1080v11. No need to cut them down. I wore them for a few days without running to allow them to mold. I was able to increase running distance by double (5k to 10k) with considerably less pain the next day.


Impressed

I have been wearing these flip-flops for the past month. I was initially skeptical since I was unable to try them on in-store prior to purchase, but the comfort level has definitely proven the purchase was well worth it! I would recommend for anyone suffering from plantar fasciitis or knee pain.


Saves my feet and ankles

The insoles work great. I have little cartilage in my ankles and my arches have fallen made walking sore. This the the 5 pair of these I have bought because they are so effective in mediating and managing my foot problems. I walk pain free after every meal 6 to 8 miles a day.


Great product

I have had these insoles for about two months. At first they felt awkward, especially in a well loved pair of shoes. But they broke in nicely in only a few days (I chose not to heat mold them). I was struggling with pain in my ankles and feet. These insoles greatly helped relieve the strain and made it so I could actually walk and not just hobble. I have since gotten a few more to put in different shoes. I can't recommend them enough.


Great insole!

I have been suffering from pain and numbness in my middle toes and pad of my foot for a while now. I recently read that it may be Morton's Neuroma. I started looking around for a foot bed that would help and found the SOLE with met pad. I cannot believe what a huge relief they have brought me. I ended up ordering three pairs. for everyday walking shoes, golf shoes and hiking shoes. Since I go them, my right foot has gotten progressively worse so I have started the process of going to a specialists but it is confirmed as Morton's Neuroma. It is worse without shoes and, honestly, my only real relief is when my feet are up with no weight on them or in my shoe with the SOLE foot bed. I've now had them for about 4 months and they are holding up amazingly well. Besides helping with my toes they are comfortable in every other way. They make you really laugh at what comes with your shoes or what they sell in a pharmacy.


Extremely comfortable

I have a broken bone in my foot that is always painful. It is attached to the outside foot tendon, which keeps it from healing. I have to give you all two big working mans thumbs up, Between your foot inserts and your flips, I have a very active life. I recently even ran most of a 5K . Thank you so much and keep up your excellent service also😃.


They really do work

I was told that these would help with Plantars Fascitis...yes! it has helped so much. I don't know why but it really makes a difference. Try them if you are in constant pain. It may make help you too


Awesome Sport Flip

I recommend this sport flip to anyone. I have bought a few pairs now for my husband who suffers from plantar fasciitis and myself with lower back pain. The Catalina sport men and women's flip are very support, comfortable - just a great flip.


Answer to foot issues

I had Plantar Fasciitis about eight years ago which is very painful. My daughter recommended SOLE products as it had helped her. I bought my first pair and my foot problems stopped. I wear them faithfully around the house and outside and highly recommend them to anyone who has problems with their feet. I have tried several different types and do like the cork soles the best.


Heel Spurs relief!

I ordered the insoles and received them within a week and put them in my runners! A huge relief in heel pain within a week! They fit in so easy and stand up! I’ve been wearing mine over a month and the are like new.


Great insert post-surgery

These are helping my recovery so much. I recently broke my second metatarsal and had a Lisfranc injury. My surgeon recommended SOLE because I have high arches. When I was allowed to start walking again it was obviously painful. These supports make it easier to walk and have helped me get back to everyday life a little quicker. It was recommended that I use these footbeds for 6 months as my body heals. The met pad wasn't a requirement from my surgeon but I think it helps on days I know I'll be on my feet a lot. I now have 3 pairs of SOLE footbeds and a pair of sandals. I love them all.


Can't do without these!

I suffered from foot pain for WAY TOO LONG. My orthopedic doctor recommended these many years ago and I absolutely can't do without them. If I go one day without, my feet, ankles and legs just ache. It's amazing that one little addition like this insert makes a HUGE difference in the best way possible.


Great product

These insoles feel like they would be great for someone with metatarsal pain. They're firm and very supportive. Sizing was accurate. This is a quality product. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis shortly after receiving these so I can't give a proper review on comfort. The firmness actually makes the pain worse but these insoles are not meant for rheumatoid arthritis pain. My mother has metatarsalgia and she swears by SOLE products. She has multiple pairs of sandals and insoles and she says they have helped with her foot pain immensely.


Great purchase

I have Plantar Fasciitis. My feet were hurting non stop for months. If I sat down for five minutes I could barely walk when I got back up. I bought these inserts and wore them a few hours a day for a few days and then every day. I have NO foot pain. I am absolutely, totally amazed!!! If they are a little uncomfortable at first do not give up. These are life changing!


I SWEAR by SOLE !

SOLE insoles are the best I've found for my particular feet: I've had a bunion since my twenties, 50 years. It was painful off and on but not now for several years. Since then I've developed a hammer toe and the start of overlapping toes. I recently declined a surgical option when it was revealed I would be off my feet for 10 months postop!! The foot surgeon referred me to a local store that carries supportive and orthopedic insoles. I DISCOVERED SOLE! and the rest is history. They make my feet comfortable in my shoes again. The ongoing changes in my feet have stopped. The bunion and hammer toe are easily managed with SOLE insoles. I'm ready to buy SOLE sandals next!


60+ hours a week on your feet? These are yours!

I work 60+ hours a week in an industrial environment, and these have been a life saver. No they have never “saved my life”, but they have saved my feet. This is my third pair in almost 20 years and I wear them to the breaking point. I highly recommend these if you are having foot pains in a work style boot.


Quick relief

I have been using SOLE inserts for almost 2 months for planter fasciitis. I experienced immediate improvement. While the issue still remains, the pain is tolerable and getting better each day. I have now purchased several pairs to replace other inserts for the same issue several years ago. SOLE inserts really do help.


Great shoes

When planter fasciitis kicks in the pain can be severe. Since I had the same issue several years ago, I knew the process. I bought SOLE inserts and they worked so well, I bought the SOLE shoes as well. They absolutely help to relieve the pain and after two months, I am at a level 3 compared to 8 when the issue began. The SOLE shoes and inserts for other shoes and exercises all together are working. It is a slow process but much more tolerable until it clears up.


Bye bye foot pain

I’ve never used a met pad insole and was a little worried I wouldn’t like it. I thought I’d feel it and it would be uncomfortable. Boy was I wrong. Not only did I not really notice it but after a long day on my feet instead of being sore and tired my feet felt great. I can’t believe what a difference it made. Buy with confidence that you’re getting a great product 🤙🏽


Days Without Foot Pain

Ordered 3 pairs of Softec Response to use in various casual shoes. Have use inserts by SOLE for years in work footwear (in response to planter fasciitis issues) & have been 100% satisfied. Have also used SOLE Hiking inserts in my hiking boots and have been very happy. Also, have worn their flip flops with wonderful success. However, am not completely sold on the results of my recent switch to the Softec Response for my work boots. Have experienced a little return of planter heel pain and am still trying to get it worked out. I will continue to remain a SOLE customer however because of all of my past successes. When you are 68 years old and have always worked on your feet, you realize that your days with out foot pain have far outweighed those with and applaud the reasons why.

Saved my feet

I saw the podiatrist for plantar fasciitis. He recommended Hoka running shoes and SOLE inserts. I bought the Hokas and my pain didn’t get any better, so I added the SOLE inserts and the pain resolved after my first wear. I stand all day for work, so I keep a pair at work and a pair in my running shoes. I am sold on these! I have been wearing them for about 6 weeks now and they make every shoe incredibly comfortable. They saved my feet!!


No more pain

I am a barefoot girl, I like to exercise my feet, and I'm a stickler for posture including movement dynamics. In spite of all the care in my body alignment, and buying no heel shoes, I still experienced pain every time I wore shoes. Up until now! Since wearing SOLE orthotics (and SOLE sandals are now my house slippers) my feet feel amazing! I have tried all sorts of premade and custom made orthotics, foot taping, etc, and nothing helped until now. I might even try heels again, on occasion! SOLE gets my highest recommendation.


They work

Bought these instead of expensive orthos. The met pad helps with my heel pain.

Pain free with SOLE

I love SOLE! I have Plantar Fasciitis and these insoles work wonderfully,


Walking in clouds

I use these for my military job and when I say it's helped my knee pain and foot issues, it's a complete 180 degree change. I was prescribed a pair during basic training and have finally bought new ones. They lasted almost 8yrs in boots for me and are extremely comfortable. You guys definitely saved my military career.

Have them in EVERY COLOUR!

I have Costa's in almost every colour, I have them for inside the house & pairs for when I head out. Costa is ALL I wear in summer and thanks to SOLE I can still wear flip flops without the pain of my Plantar Fasciitis. I had to try a couple different styles before I found my glass slipper in the Costa! Best purchase I've ever made.


Love them!

I really like these - I like these more than my 400 dollar custom orthotics. My favourite thing about them is that they make my gait feel more natural. I've always had foot/ankle problems, including overpronation, peroneal tendonitis, os trigonum issues, etc. I always feel awkward when I walk. These help my bad foot do that natural heel-to-toe motion properly. Overall, they reduce my foot and ankle pain a lot - I can't believe how affordable they are. Only problem is that now I hate walking without them.

Love Love LOOOVE

I work in a hospital and i spend up to 12 hrs a day walking on nasty cement floors , I have Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot, and these insoles have SAVED ME!! After only a couple of weeks of having them in my work shoes my pain level is DRASTICALLY REDUCED! If you suffer ANY foot pain you can't go wrong with SOLE, just give their products a chance. You WONT REGRET IT!


Great insole

I have very flat feet and have struggled with foot injuries because of it. This insole with the met pad feels a bit different at first but ultimately relives my foot pain I have had for years. These insoles offers such great support. I have been fitted for very expensive custom inserts from my foot doctor but I hate wearing them. My custom made inserts are hard as a rock no padding and squeak like crazy. I have worn my SOLE inserts for a few weeks now and I'm sold on these. I love them. I have since bought two more pairs and sandals from SOLE. I hope they are all just as great. I'm so glad I found this company. Life changing.


They're great!

My right foot has problems; a pronounced bunion and no arch at all. When I walk, it's like walking on my ankle, and is painful. At the end of the day, there's a huge swelling on the outside side of that foot. I have been through so many insoles I've lost count. None provide support where it's needed; they concentrate on being squishy, and what I need is firm support. I bought your insoles on a chance, fully expecting that they'd be the same as all the others. WOW! They weren't! They were firm at the arch and helped counteract the flatness. They're comfortable! The only thing missing is a wedge on the inside side of my heel, to tilt the whole foot outwards. Thanks people! I love them.

great product

I was given this information from a friend and decided to try SOLE as nothing else has worked for my constant foot pain. After putting the Active Thin Wide one in my loafers that I had not been able to wear for very long at a time, I can now wear when shopping, for longer stretches of time. My feet still hurt but at least I can walk with less pain. Thank you for your product.


Best sandals ever!

I have bought several pairs of the Catalina Sport Flip over the years and have always been very happy with them. I have plantar fasciitis and these sandals are a life saver, when I wear them I have absolutely no pain. I have some for inside and others for outside. I can say without a doubt that these are the most comfortable flip flop sandals I have ever had. Thank you SOLE for bringing us such an outstanding product.

Wei Y Tu


Love it!!

I have been wearing SOLE shoes for 6 years. I normally would buy from a store that's close to me. This year because of covid I bought right from SOLE. Let me tell you best decision I have made this year!! They where cheaper by $30!!!! They also had a WAY better colour selection then the store I normally go to! I can't wear normal sandals from regular stores because they give me instant pain. If it wasn't for SOLE sandals I wouldn't be wearing sandals at all!! The sandals I bought right from SOLE are very comfortable and fashionable. I wear 1 pair as slippers and the other as outdoor shoes!! I plan on buying from them permanently!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!


No More Foot Pain

I am very thankful to my co-worker that suggested SOLE insole. I was having terrible foot pain in my toe area. I tried wider toe boxes which helped a small amount but after wearing the Softec Response insoles for a week or so I no longer have any foot pain! I highly recommend them to everyone I know!


Great cushioning

Added these to Alpine touring ski boots to fill some space as the liners packed out and found the cork, although firm, adds some welcome cushioning to the heel while walking in the boots off skis and while striding while skiing. Very nice. Also helped a little with a increasing tendency to get a trigger point in the calf aggravated that produces perceived (referred) heel pain.


Cute and comfy

I received my flips a month ago and practically haven't taken them off (I wear them like slippers around the house then outside in the yard) . They are casual, sexy looking, completely neutral and give a nude look to my feet! They stay on my feet quite well when I'm walking, but I would love another pair with a back strap so that I could do some serious walking with them. And most importantly - absolutely no foot pain!

Feedback

This product helped my son as his Chiropractor suggested he needed some arch support. He works on a kitchen staff and has been wearing SOLE for 2 months now I don't hear complaints about pain. I am so glad this product is affordable and very comfortable to wear


Incredible

I've suffered from hip pain and tarsal tunnel syndrome for years. Then I read about supination, which is walking on the outside of your foot. I realized I did that and looked up ways to correct it. SOLE's website came up and I ordered what was recommended. After just TWO DAYS my hip pain had receded to the point where I barely noticed it. I also found that my tarsal tunnel syndrome symptoms (caused by nerve compression in the ankles) were drastically reduced. When I took off my shoes and socks to go to bed, I was amazed that I could actually feel the texture of the carpet under my feet for the first time in years. AFTER TWO DAYS! I immediately ordered a second pair. It's rare that I've been so satisfied with a product, especially one ordered online. THANK YOU SOLE!!!


Great for running

I have high arches and was having pain under the ball of my foot. These insole fixed that immediately. Highly recommended.


Feet are in love

I purchased a variety of SOLE products for all of my shoes. Boots, running shoes, work sneakers, casual sneakers. I did the oven/heated custom fitting as recommended, and the SOLEs have formed to my feet perfectly (I have a medium arch). I'm finally at a place where I love putting on any shoe and moving around without pain and discomfort. I can finally purchase stylish shoes without looking like I rolled out of the foot doctor! My running game is back on, and the impact absorbing material doubles my recovery time. I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone.

Great Insoles

I have had foot and ankle pain for years. I was using expensive orthodics untill I found these insoles. When I first received them I compared them to my expensive insoles they were almost the same. The arch height was the same - the only difference I could see was the heel cup was not quite as deep. The thickness was a little softer. In my opinion these are better then the expensive ones. I have them in all my shoes and work boots.


Everyday comfort!

I bought these as a third pair during a sale SOLE was having. I absolutely love these insoles, they provide great support and have helped my Plantar Fasciitis more than anything else I have done, yes pain relief!! I use these daily in my athletic shoes, also love there flip flops for summer time, the same great support.


Great insole

Have arthritis in big toe joint. Has alleviated pain and provide great support


So far so good!

Originally I bought these to alleviate toe pain from an old turf toe injury. I liked that they are made from recycled cork and that they are molded to my foot. They fit great in my On Cloudboom runners without a need to trim them. I've had them for about a month and, granted I haven't done much for long distance, I haven't experienced any toe pain and really like the added support they provide. Only issue is I notice they make a low squeaking noise when I walk. Don't really notice it when I run though.

Game changer

I have had several foot surgeries and have lived with foot pain for years. My SOLE inserts have been a game changer for me. My pain is much better and I can do more active things again!


Offers Stability

I have paralysis in both of my lower legs and feet. The insole provides arch support and stability. Otherwise I would stand and walk on a hard, flat carbon fiber footplate. The insole provides support arch support and decreases nerve pain. Also prevents my foot from moving side to side within my shoe.


Take no steps! Without this.

If you are on your feet all day or night, walking on hard (concrete) surfaces or uneven ground while hiking or running, this footbed will not only keep your feet comfortable but they will help align your back so that you're not placing pressure on one section of your feet causing back pain and spine misalignment. These were recommended to me by a board certified podiatrist for arch support, but I have discovered over the years I've been wearing them that they are much more than arch support. Without a good foundation life can be challenging. Wearing these may not eliminate those challenges but they will make them easier to bear. I wouldn't consider wearing any shoe without these inside with the exception of my reefs. I know these cost more than their competitors but once you've experienced the quality and comfort, you'll realize they have NO competition. These are life changing!


Walk again

Can finally walk again without foot pain. I now own six pairs of these in all the different styles. Will not walk out the door without them.


just the right product :)

I needed some new insoles. My friend told me how her new pair of SOLE Active inserts way fixed her foot pain and showed me her pair. They looked exactly like what an active shoe insert should look like so I bought a pair. Wow! What a difference! New life to my old shoes. Better life to my hiking boots and way happy feet to my work boots, all from one new pair of SOLE Active inserts. I've had 'em for about 2 months. They're durability seems to be great (looking forward). The fit is good for 4 out of 5 pairs of my footwear. And yes, they are comfortable! My fifth pair is just a bit small for the insert so I have to stay with my old pair of inserts. Exceeded my expectations for comfort. In my opinion, BUY 'EM!! They work!


Allows me to walk pain free

The product was recommended by my Doctor. Allows me a pain free day.


Great results

These insoles have been a key part of my eliminating achilles and arch pain. It keeps me running without pain. They are in all my everyday and running shoes now. It does take a little time to feel comfortable while running if you haven't had this good type of support in the past but they allow me to run injury free for the problems caused by lack of arch support in the past. I have been using them for the last 1-1.5 years and love the results.

I NEED the Costa in EVERY COLOUR

I originally ordered the Balboa Flip in a sz 10. Unfortunately it didn't fit at all, too short & tight , SOLE were awesome and sent me a new pair in a 11 , but they were to BIG... I sent both pair back and SOLE refunded me. I ordered the Costa Flip sz 10 & was nervous about trying them on, they slipped straight onto my feet , perfect length and fit !!! Now as soon as they are restocked I'll be getting them in every colour.... They are soooo comfortable I can't believe I didn't know about SOLE sooner . If you do order and they don't fit , try another style... I'm glad I did. They have helped reduce my footy pain dramatically. 10/10 Thank you !


A new beginning

I have suffered with a left foot Morton's Neuroma for years. I could never hike more than 4 miles (with or without backpack)....UNTIL NOW!! These inserts are no joke and there is absolutely no hype in the claims. Proof? I just returned from a backpacking trip to Sedona, AZ & the Grand Canyon with newly installed Active Thick with Met pad. It was trial under fire. Result? Zero foot pain....and I mean ZERO. Canyon hike alone was 16 miles with steep descent and ascent. That hike was followed up with long hikes in Sedona...again with zero foot pain SOLE is truly a game changer and I highly recommend them!! - Charles Dyke, Winthrop, ME

Great soles!

These soles really help me out with my back pain and being able to walk and stand longer with out increasing my pain. If you are on your feet a long time or want to walk longer without pain I strongly suggest getting a pair!


Works very well for my metatarsal pain

After an increase in snow shoeing and cross country skiing frequency, I began to feel acute pain in my metatarsal head when walking, especially barefoot on hard surface, but then it progressed to walking at all times unless I taped my foot to lift the metatarsal heads. It's tough to tape your skin daily so it was time to finally get orthotics. I bought a thin pair with met pad for my every day shoes and the thick ones with met pad for running. With the insoles I was able to KEEP running in spite of the injury (although I taped at the same time at first) but soon stopped the tape and the orthotics alone were enough to give me relief. After about 6-8 weeks it had healed enough that I could walk barefoot indoors occasionally without pain. I still prefer to wear the insoles on a daily basis as my transverse arch has chronically dropped and it is more comfortable to walk/run with them supported by the insoles. I am also a physiotherapist and I recommend these SOLE moldable arches as a first resort before spending hundreds of dollars on custom orthotics. Great service also!


Ski boot footbed

Put them in an Intuition liner that was heat molded for my ski boots. Met pad is not so large that it is noticeable while skiing but works well and prevented and cramping or pain under the forefoot,


Game changer

I had a friend that got these for me and it changed my world. I wear boots all day, everyday on concrete. My feet would throb every night but now I have these in all boots and no more pain. I have purchased these for several friends who now have them in all their boots. 60 bucks well spent.


Yes they are great

I'm a park ranger and I hike for a living. I have suffered from neuromas on both feet and two years ago got the gift of plantar fasciitis in both feet. After several cortisone shots and trying costume orthotics and several expensive other brands I stumbled on SOLE products. Now after several months with SOLE my feet are 90% better and I can hike without pain again. Yes they do help.


Plantar Fasciitis

I have had an injection in my heel that worked but went away and physical therapy for plantar fasciitis for 3 months. I ordered a pair of medium footbeds designed to help with the pain I have experienced for months. I have followed the therapy recommendations and with the footbeds the pain is virtually gone. I have tried other footbeds and experienced some help but no where near what SOLE is giving me.


Love these SOLEs!

I've used my SOLEs for years and just reordered for my new sneakers. I love them, super comfortable, great support, easily fits inside any tennis shoe.. most importantly, I have plantar fasciitis and they save me from foot pain daily!!


No more foot pain

I have for many years used support insoles. I was using the Barefoot Science product and really liked it. The reason for the change was price. I decided to look around for an alternative support. I was looking for a Canadian product and the bonus was SOLE used recyclable material. I decided to try a couple or pairs and I am very satisfied. I walk to and from work with a backpack for about 2 Km each way. I've been doing this for about ten years. I started to suffer from foot pain (plantar F) because I was carrying more in the backpack. I'm happy to say that since using SOLE my the foot pain is almost totally resolved. The Performance Mediums I purchased for my golf shoes. I also purchased Thins for my dress shoes and about six pairs of Thick for walking shoes and snow boots. I also bought slip on shoes that I use for slippers, they are great. I recommend the product to all the sore feet. Thank you SOLE!


All Day Comfort

These are my first pair of SOLE sandals. I always had Reefs but recently would get plantar fasciitis pain after being in them all day. I switched to the sole sandals and haven't had any pain since. They look like normal nice sandals and provide all day comfort.

Lifesaver

I was looking for help for my plantar fasciitis which struck me suddenly as I turned 60 and entered retirement. Golfing, Hobby Farming, Fishing, Hiking, Walking all became activities that caused me to search for all kinds of products to help with pain until I found SOLE. This product works effectively, right away, and it is simple to customize to your arch. I now have them in all my shoes. Because I am thrifty (married people like myself may insert "cheap"), I purchased SOLE products one at a time at first. I needed to make sure they worked and I still had a few other products on the go that I had already spent money on --that didn't work by the way. SOLE arch supports are durable and comfortable. They fit well in all shoes from rubber boots to work boots to golf shoes even work well in slippers. I have used these products in my daily shoes for over two years and I have now converted all my shoes to SOLE because they work!


Saved my snowboard boots

Had foot pain when wearing my snowboard boots. Replaced the old liners with these and the pain is gone! Super comfortable, I can't recommend them enough!


Great for chef shoes

Bought them for my son who as a chef works 11 hours on his feet. Previously his socks would shred under the balls of his feet from all the pressure and cause a lot of foot pain in that area. After using the active medium pads he can't believe how much better his feet feel! He wants pairs for his non work shoes because his feet ache without them.

Bunion Suffering, Foot Care Nurse Recommended

I have had bunions since the age of 13 and am now 36 likely related to flat foot arches. I first purchased one of these insoles to place inside my K-Swiss shoes (which I purchase in men's sizes despite being a women due to the larger toe box) a few years ago. I absolutely love these insoles. LOVE. LOVE THEM! I have had virtually no bunion-related pain since using these in my work shoes when previously I was on the surgical wait list for bunion removal surgery. For more context, I am a nurse who works acute care; 12 hour shifts most of which is spent speed walking through the unit. I can't say enough good things about these insoles. My feet are no longer in excruciating pain by the end of my shifts -- and this has remained true through the 2-3 years that I have used them. I am still happily using my first purchased SOLE insole in my work shoes and ended up buying another pair for a video review and to use in a new pair of work shoes that I am currently breaking in. I tell EVERYONE about these insoles because I love them so much.


Very happy!

I broke my foot 6 months ago (Lisfranc mid foot multiple bone and ligament injury) and the recovery has been brutal. I tried many therapies, but the constant aches and pains have not yet gone away. The SOLEs made such a big difference for me, I no longer wake up with stiffness in my mid arch and toes, it helped tremendously! Very very happy I found these, thank you!

work medium

These footbeds have saved my feet. I paid $375 for a pair of orthotics and wore them for 2 months and still my feet hurt so thought i would try SOLE bought a pair of medium work and within 2 days my feet were so much better i could walk around without pain so happy I tried these there awesome Thank You SOLE


Joe Byrnes

I am a cyclist and I have been having knee and metatarsal joint pain for over a year. When walking my left foot tends to land on outside edge first and then collapses towards inside. This puts a lot of stress on my left knee and met joint especially when I am on the bike. I read about cycling shoe insoles and SOLE was highly recommended. I decided to try and ordered a pair of Active Thins with Met Pad. What a difference they made in a week. I wear them in my cycling shoes and metatarsal pain has decreased a great deal. My knee also tracks straight as opposed to making an elliptic travel during up and down strokes. Met Pad in my case helped a lot. Despite my left leg being the stronger one I was only able to push 32% on the bike. It's almost at 50% right now. I guess my foot was all over the place. I ordered a medium ones for my walking shoes and they work great also. It has been only 10 days but the difference is big. Custom molding them is very easy, great soles at very affordable price. I highly recommend this product.


SOLE gave us relief

I bought two pairs, one for my husband & one for myself. My husband had used them sometime before, but this was my first experience. Jim had not worn the inserts for a period time & was experiencing aching and cramping in his legs & feet. He is a hard working contractor and also a detailed & precise cabinet maker, which causes him to stand for long periods of time. A few days after wearing his inserts he no longer suffers from the pain he was having. This was my first time using this product. I have bad knees, and am enjoying some relief after I started wearing my new insert.


Love my SOLEs!

Before I purchased SOLEs, I started to get plantar fascia pain. Ever since I have been wearing SOLEs, my pain has disappeared. It's very comfortable and fits well!


Foot pain no more

I have purchased 2 SOLE cork foot beds now and I will never buy another brand. Last year when I was experiencing foot pain in my functional fitness shoes I decided to give them a try. I was sold nearly immediately. They confirmed to my foot and soon after all of my pains and aches had disappeared. There was no question in my mind when the insoles of my beloved boots folded up that I replace them with the Thin footbed. Nothing short of amazing. I could stand all day without issue. I only wish I could have these in every pair of shoes I own. On the fence? Don't be. You'll be glad you tried these.


Can't live without them

I have really high arches and having to wear steel toe work boots for 10 hours a day is excruciating. I've been using SOLE insoles for years now and I can't imagine wearing my boots without them. I recently tried the Met Pad version and it helps with the pain I would occasionally get in the outside area of my foot right below the toes. These insoles are thick so make sure there is plenty of room in the toe box if you plan on using them.


Great for sneakers; too thick for Crocs

I am recovering from hip replacement surgery and have learned that I need arch support to correct my leg alignment from "duck-footed" to straight ahead. This Active Thick SOLE with Met Pad is perfect support for my daily walks when placed inside my sneakers. I first tried them inside my Crocs, my "inside shoes," and this was painful, as the Crocs have surprisingly little give. So now I know I need a Medium thickness with Met Pad for Crocs, Thick with Met Pad for sneakers. I don't know how I managed without this support for so long! Thank you, SOLE.


Best walking SOLEs

I had been wearing my Thick SOLEs for about a month now, unbelievable. I have 2 dogs so I am walking twice a day 7 km total, no foot pain, it all resolved. Prior to Thick SOLEs I had good runners on but always had heel etc .pain, these SOLEs are life savers, I also have slim ones for my flat shoes and medium for my high boots, I love them all and they all work for a different shoes.... very well made. With the thick SOLEs I will order half size bigger my runners... the comfort is so amazing for my walks... love my SOLEs!


pain prevention

I have been using SOLE for several years. The active Medium with the built in Met Pad is excellent, great for the feet.


Like Having Brand New Shoes!

I'd been having back and heel pain and I have high arches, which sometimes makes my feet hurt too. Once I slipped these into my running shoes, not only did my shoes feel like they were brand new, but within a couple of days, my back and heel pain was gone! Such an awesome product. I'm telling everyone!


Relief from pain

I was already feeling metatarsal soreness which would be relieved with a taping technique I used. I was considering orthotics since taping my feet regularly was starting to irritate my skin. Then with winter boots and a cross country ski day, I further irritated my left foot and was feeling sharp pain at my first metatarsal head. I ordered the Active Thin with Met Pad and instantly could walk without the pain. This is helping me walk more normally again. Customer service was AMAZING when I had an issue with the medium thickness pair I ordered. Definitely recommend this product! The shaping of the orthotic in the oven was actually very easy to do also. Happy customer here!


Foot pain no more

I have purchased 2 SOLE cork foot beds now and I will never buy another brand. Last year when I was experiencing foot pain in my functional fitness shoes I decided to give them a try. I was sold nearly immediately. They conformed to my foot and soon after, all of my pains and aches had disappeared. There was no question in my mind when the insoles of my beloved boots folded up that I replace them with the Thin footbed. Nothing short of amazing. I could stand all day without issue. I only wish I could have these in every pair of shoes I own. On the fence? Don't be. You'll be glad you tried these.


Cross Country Ski Boot Companion

These met pad insoles were the secret weapon for a full day of cross country skiing with a Morton's Neuroma. I've been enjoying them for the past 2 months in my ski boots and am able to enjoy pain free fun while using them for both classic and skate ski adventures. They are very comfortable and are easily switched between ski boots. I also enjoy the environmental footprint of these reusable materials. The ordering process and shipment and delivery was easy and fast. Super impressed!


Amazing inserts

SOLE inserts saved my life literally. Had planters facitis for months trying shoes, inserts, creams you name I was desperate! Finally found SOLE, ordered online and wow within days the pain was gone. SOLEs fit for me as I have high arches and they are perfect. The quality of the material used is firm but not too firm, just right. You do not want soft inserts. I would recommend SOLEs definitely. Lets just say from now on I will never be without them. Go order yours immediately!


Exactly what we needed! So happy we found these :)

Bought these for my mom as she's been using SOLE inserts since she injured her foot/leg. The local shoe store she usually gets them from recommend her the medium active & price gauged them. Active Medium have been working for her, but coming straight to the website we found so many different options & she herself picked these Thick ones out. Got them quick & she loves them. We will continue to order these from here for now on. Even though she has surgery in March to correct her foot issues, we're ordering a second pair for my house. She NEVER takes her shoes off (her arch is really bad) due to the pain, so we're putting them in some recovery sandals and then she'll have a pair for inside and outside. Very satisfied with the quality, fit, and quick delivery.


Amazing

I have had 3 surgeries to my neck...so I am in constant pain in my neck...back and feet. I purchased these and they are by far the only thing that keeps my neck and back aligned properly....my feet are the most comfortable they have been in years. I wear them all day long...I wish you would make running shoes out of this material...I would buy them. I have just purchased the cork insoles and fingers crossed they are going to help....I unfortunately can't wear sandals outside in the winter time. I highly recommend these....I just ordered another pair lol


The BEST

I've had 3 or 4 other brand of insoles over the years looking to make my shoes more comfortable and relieve plantar fasciitis pain. A friend was ordering some insoles for her husband work boots and I thought what the heck I'll check them out so wrote the SOLE name down and then googled and found you. When I saw the met pad versions I decided to "gamble" on yet another insole. It was a good gamble because now I have 6 pair of met insoles, thick for hunting boots and medium for tennis shoes and dress shoes all with the met pad. Guess what? No more plantar fasciitis. The SOLE insoles were easy to mold, fit my shoes perfectly, are comfortable and the met pad seals the deal for me. I honestly will get more of these in the future. Love'em!!


Sole

Two years ago I was having a lot of pain in my feet I went too a Podiatrist after a examination found I did not need special orthodics made. I was sent to a store that sells running shoes and SOLE inserts, they have eliminated most pain. I am very satisfied with this product.


No more pain

I have a Mortons neuroma, and the pinching had become unbearable. I was searching online for inserts with metatarsal pads and found SOLE. I ordered the performance medium with the met pad for my winter boots that have no support of any kind. What a difference! This insert, unlike my others, is full length, which keeps it in place. If it had needed a trim, it could have been cut to fit. I highly recommend these inserts. I have not felt a single pinch!


No pain on Monday

I ruined my arches by wearing cheap flips as a kid thru my twenties. That took a toll and required me to get orthotic inserts for my shoes. On the weekend, I looked forward to wearing flips but always paid the price on Monday with really sore feet. SOLE orthotics have been a gem and I was so pleased to have the same comfort and support from their flips. I love wearing these! No pain on Monday!


Greet insole for cycling

I use these for cycling and they've turned a once so-so pair of shoes into very comfortable shoes that i can use on 3+ hour rides. I used to get pain on the outside side of my foot after a few hours but this insole has helped get rid of it. Plus my higher archer know feel nice and supported.


Feels Great!!

I bought the Costa because I'd been feeling pain in the balls of my feet probably from being at home so much during the pandemic. I'm glad I got them because they made a difference right away. I've had them for about 2 months now. The shape is perfect and seems to give just the right support everywhere my feet needs it: arch, heel, and ball. The material is soooooo comfortable with just the right balance of firmness, cushion and bounce. I feel like I'm walking on air. This is one of the best things I've bought anywhere this year and last.


Best insoles ever

These insoles are excellent. I had to give up my daily 8 Km walks for 8 days and ride the stationary bike because of extreme pain from metatarsalgia in my right foot. This condition had been undiagnosed but getting worse over the last few years and I googled the symptoms, which brought me to your website. I followed the oven instructions and fitted the insoles in place of the factory insoles and began using them that day. The met pad made a 100 percent difference and I am now pain free when I walk or hike. I have a pair in my hiking boots and my trail shoes. My only regret was that I had not found your company 5 years ago when the metatarsalgia started.


Quality Continues with this Slide

Replaced my current Slide with this and it continues to meet my needs. Specifically, I have flat feet and need the SOLE stability in the arch to avoid pain. I had my prior slides for over five years so the return on investment is excellent. The soles are still in great condition, I just wanted to get a new pair. The only suggestion is that the seam on the band on top simply eroded. I tribute that to a lot of wear, both inside and outdoors for many years.


Cycling Shoes and Ski Boots

I have these in my road cycling shoes and they've eliminated any discomfort and keep my feet feeling good on century+ length rides. My 11 year old son complained of foot pain in his ski boots so we inserted a pair and he's commented on the comfort ever since. The Met Pad is particularly important for me and not something I've been able to find in any other option. Great products I will continue to buy well into the future.

Great product

Amazing product I don't get back pain like I had before and no cramp foot and legs i highly recommend this product I got 3 insole and 2 sandals and can not be happier . Thank you SOLE!


Thank Heavens for these insoles!

Oh I'm so happy to have found these insoles! I've struggled with plantar fasciitis pain for the last year or so. I've tried wearing a walking boot 24/7, wearing a variety of different night splints, and have tried a couple of different insoles, and these have made the most difference! I love that the SOLE Active Thin w/Met Pad fit into more of my shoes than the other insoles (the size 8 pad fits perfectly in all my size 8 and 8.5 shoes), and after wearing them for a little more than a week, my foot pain is GREATLY REDUCED! While I can't speak to the longevity/long term use of these insoles, I'm optimistic and I've planned on order a couple more sets so I don't have to take them in and out of different pairs of shoes.


Love it!

I have plantar fasciitis and it was bad enough that even my running shoes didn't feel good after a few hours. I got these insoles about a month ago and my foot pain is gone! Unbelievable, been fighting this for two years and wish I'd pulled the trigger and bought them sooner. Totally worth every penny.


Best orthotics ever

My doctor recommended these orthotics a few years ago because of my plantar fasciitis. I went online and saw the price and thought, Wow, my last pair I bought was over $300". For the price alone I was willing to give them a try. I'm so glad I did. They are so comfortable, I am pain free in my feet and I have never looked back. If you are trying to decide if you want to buy these, look no further. Buy these and you won't regret it.


Morton’s Neuroma Reflief

I've been trying different insoles from different companies for over a year trying to find one that worked. This one does! It fits in my runners perfectly without filing them up with too much padding on the bottom. The metatarsal pad and arch support really improve the discomfort of the neuroma. I've been exercising in them for 2-3 weeks and I've noticed a huge improvement in my foot pain lessening. Easy to break in.


Don't Leave Home Without SOLE

I have worn SOLE in every pair of shoes for several years. I grew tired of moving 2-3 pairs around between shoes so I recently purchased 2 pair of thins for my dress shoes, 2 pair of mediums for tennis shoes and a pair of thick for my work boots. I moved my old ones to my golf shoes and snow boots. I believe so strongly in the product that I purchased 2 pair for my wife, 1 for my child and 1 for a coworker with some lower body pain. Taking care of your feet impacts several parts of your body up to your neck (ankles, knees, hips, back and neck). SOLE are money well spent.


Joint pain went from a 7 to a 1

I've had lower extremity joint pain for years (I'm only 19), including patellofemoral syndrome and foot supination. Putting these in my work shoes has changed the game for me, truly: I noticed an immediate difference and my pain has subsided in the two months that I've been wearing the inserts. I chose to let the inserts mold to my feet over a few days and they worked perfectly. They give the shoe more of a firm footbed, which I like. 100% would recommend and would buy again.

Helped to cure my plantar fasciitis

I spend countless hours on my feet at work, and I've been in my role for 23 years. I suffer from plantar fasciitis. My chiropodist recommended that when I'm home to try the SOLE flip flop rather than walk barefoot. He sold them in his front store at his clinic. So I bought a pair. This was 15 years ago. The flip flops played a huge part in curing my fasciitis and I've bought 2 other pairs since then. My most recent purchase was a Christmas gift for my sister who also spends quite a lot of time on her feet and now suffers from plantar fasciitis. I swear by sole products to aid in this condition. The quality of the product is unbeatable, and the comfort: well let's say that I will not wear any other shoe at home. They are the most comfortable shoes that I own. I also experience less ankle pain than in the past and I attribute this to the ergonomics of these shoes. I am interested in trying a sole product as my shoes for work.


They helped!

I am a supinator and running and walking has become painful due to improper alignment. I wear wide toe shoes and have even tried custom orthotics. I have been wearing these for 30 days (and stretching somewhat more) and it is making a significant difference. I am buying a second pair for my second pair of running shoes.


The BEST

Absolutely love them. I have had problems with my feet for a few years now, and found it a pain to switch my orthodics which are very expensive from show to shoe. I have SOLE insoles in all my footwear now and have no issues with foot pain any longer.


Comfortable

I have an arch problem and subsequent foot pain. This cork based support provides good cushioning and has reduced any pain I formerly had. I would buy again


Very comfortable

I have arch problems and foot pain. This Active Thick product is nicely cushioned and provides excellent support. I have had no pain since wearing them. I would definitely buy them again.


Why pay 500.00 dollars when you can wear SOLES

I have had plantar fasciitis and achilles problems. After trying many things the doctor decided that I needed to see a foot doctor. I then purchased insoles at 500.00 dollars which in a bit of time worked. The sad part is before my 500.00 expense I had purchased your product but did give your SOLEs enough time to work. The foot doctor asked me what I had tried and I told him SOLEs and he asked how long had I used them for. I then knew I could have saved me money and pain I have recommended them to my sister and friends. I recently bought a pair for my son as a Christmas gift, (he wears the 500.00 ones! and I told him SOLEs where as good) I have purchased them from a couple of stores in Winnipeg (Canadian footwear and Legacy) before buying direct from you. I like the thin SOLEs because they fit nicely in my shoes with great support as I wear them in all my shoes every day. Great product


Amazing Insoles

I suffered from plantar fasciitis for almost a year. I would limp in pain when I got out of bed in the morning. I would hobble when I walked. I had tried other insoles but they only gave me temporary relief. Then I tried these insoles. They saved my feet! Within 2 weeks the pain was gone. I could walk and move without pain. The insoles fit like a glove. I can now walk 18 holes of golf and suffer no pain that day or the next. I have them in all my shoes and now I can say goodbye to foot pain. For over a year now. They work!


Saved my feet

I have had orthotics made for me, I found them so uncomfortable and my foot slid around on them. These SOLEs saved my from so much pain. My feet and knees have never felt better. Not only that but they fit in most shoes so easily because they aren't big and bulky. I don't leave home without them now and will use them forever. Highly recommend!!


Pain relief!

After some research and the purchase of many other brands of insoles, I have finally found the perfect one for my feet. I had significant relief from my planter fasciitis within a couple of days. I purchased my second pair just 2 weeks later. SOLE will be my go to brand of insoles.


Life changing

After living with pain in my tendons and Morton's Neuroma, I have finally been able to get back to normal walking and activity! These met pad insoles have given me my life back!


Incredible

I purchased these for cross country and downhill skiing, as I have flat feet and suffer arch pain. Since the first time I wore these I have not suffered from arch pain or cramping. Bonus is that my feet are less tired; I no longer have pain radiating from my heels and under the ball of my foot after skiing. Absolutely transformative experience

Excellent Product

As a long term sufferer of flat feet and plantar fasciitis, foot pain used to be my norm. I then discovered custom orthotics but with limited application and use. When I discovered SOLE my life changed! I could go back to doing all of the things I loved. And wear multiple types of shoes and sports equipment! SOLE products are amazing and my go-to now! Thanks


Saved my feet!

I have been a SOLE wearer for about 15 years. During my first pregnancy, I had the worst Plantar Fasciitis and could barely walk. A local store recommended that I put a pair of sole insoles inside every pair of shoes...and it worked. Completely cured my foot pain. Thanks SOLE!

Saved my ankle!

Having purchased a pair of Merrells for everyday winter wear, my left ankle became bruised. After a week of pain and now a very bruised ankle, I put these SOLE Work Mediums in. Not only did they feel good, but my ankle seemed less painful. In a week, the bruise was gone and there was no pain. Truly, it was blessed relief. I should have thought to do it sooner. Duh! I love these products for the comfort they have given me over the years.


Cork is the way

I've tried many of the SOLE products now and I found the cork footbeds to be the best. I'm not sure why exactly, but I have much less foot pain with this bed. I feel a little spring back with them, a little shock absorbing. Cork is unique and none of the other pads feel this way. Sadly I see REI is closing them out, I hope that doesn't mean this product is EOL.


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!
