Great!

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


Heel pain gone away!

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

I will never use any insert again except sole inserts

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

They are the ultimate insert for my falling arches

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

You are doing something very right

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

Now I have them for all my shoes

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

My dogs were screaming by the end of the day

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

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

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

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

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

I have been a happy customer for about five years now

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

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

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

These will keep me jogging on!

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

These are the best sandals I've ever worn

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

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

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

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

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

I'm ecstatic about the results

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

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

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

They are truly amazing sandals

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

No pain just comfort

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

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

They did what they were supposed to do

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

Happy to say they were love at first fit

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

I wish I had found them years ago

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

The difference was night and day

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

The SOLE inserts far exceeded my expectations

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

I will be a customer for life

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

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

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

I first purchased these for my snowboarding boots

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

Zac


Brought back the joy of running

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

I am hooked

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

My legs feel fine and I can run even more

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

Brad


My foot pain has almost completely disappeared

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

The best thing I bought myself in years

I was suffering from Morton's Neuroma

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

The sole sandals have really helped

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

Barbara


I desparately needed some lasting and quality support

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

Joni


I just love the sandals

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

They make my feet feel a lot better

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

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

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

I thought my days of being active were over

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

His feet feel much better

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

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

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

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

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

I've noticed major improvements in my feet

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

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

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

Have definitely improved my cycling

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

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

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

Very painful case of Plantar Fasciitis

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

Working on Concrete Floors

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

The sole product I bought has worked wonders

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

Far Exceeded my Expectations

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

Twelve Hour Days

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

Recommended to help with lower extremity problems

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

Running Comfortably

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

Thank you for such an incredible product

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

The SOLE Custom Footbeds have helped enormously

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

My feet were happier than they had ever been before

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

My foot doctor recommended your footbeds

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

I will not have a pair of boots without them again

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

Your soles did save this grandmother a ton of money

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

This product is outstanding

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

I've developed a crunchy knee

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

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

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

They are now the ONLY sandals I wear

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

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

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