10 thousand kms and counting

Stumbled onto the Signature DK responses 8 years ago at the early stages of my appalachian trail thru hike. I had undergone an achilles tendon surgery and was quite nervous about my foot. Tried these on in North Carolina, fell in love with them, and walked the rest of the 4 million plus footsteps to the finish line, 2000 +miles later. I've now hiked well over 10 thousand + kms world wide since and every one of those footsteps have been with the support of SOLE foodbeds. I have size 9 wide feet that pronates on one feet and supinates on other due to my injury. To make it more interesting, one foot is slightly smaller and flatter in arch than the other. These footbeds are so perfect as they custom mold to my feet which changes in width throughout the course of a lengthy thru hike. The Performance Wide and Active Mediums work really well for me. I can't wait to test them out tree planting this summer in a totally different environment and footwear conditions.


Best non custom footbed!

I am a retired Physical Therapist and this is the best foot bed I've ever purchased!


SOLE insoles

I have high arches & am always on my feet. SOLE insoles are in all my shoes now & it makes such a difference in comfort. Now I can wear a shoe that doesn't have the necessary arch & just pop my insole into it for a perfect fit. As my finances allow, I'd like to try more than just the insoles. Great customer service also!


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!


Happy Feet

I love the SOLE products. I have high arches and find these inserts to be support my feet perfectly! As my foot changes or I change athletic shoe, I can also adapt the sole to my needs. I highly recommend this product for all active activities. My feet are so happy!


The road to recovery

I have been using SOLE insoles for almost 2 years now, and I never leave home without them. I have been recovering from multiple injuries to my feet, including plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis. These insoles have helped to relieve the pressure on my plantar fascia, and have provided me with the arch support that I needed to reduce the strain on my Achilles. They were amazingly comfortable right from day 1, and I would strongly recommend this product to anyone who needs a good, supportive insole. I would not have made as much of a recovery as I have it weren't for SOLE.


good quality, i like it very much

5 Star for the products , good quality


Finally wore out a pair of my socks

I picked up 4 pairs of socks some 15 years ago when I was introduced to sole insoles. I have worn the socks for casual wear and exercise at least once a week since that time, and finally wore through my first pair of the thin ankle length black socks. (No special care was taken...machine washed and dried (Low heat) always with no problems) Comfortable, supportive, and still fitting true after all these years. I will most definitely be replacing these with some of the newer ones. My Sandals that I had also had and worn exclusively over the years were stolen from the poolside while at a resort two years ago. The most comfortable thong sandals ever!


Good support, too thick for my running shoes.

I bought the product for arch support to use in general purpose, casual, and athletic shoes (running, trail shoes, etc.). These soles are comfortable, but in hindsight I would have purchased the thin ones since the small amount of padding combined with the arch/heel support really takes up more volume than anticipated. I would need to size up my shoes (to use the Medium SOLE) or go with the thinner SOLE footbeds for my tennis shoes, Clark's, or Salomon shoes. I ended up using these Mediums in my work boots and plan to continue doing so since they provide the arch support I was looking for when on my feet for long periods.


Lifechanging

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


Best Orthotics

This pair was purchased for my husband after bouts of plantar fasciitis. I have purchased at least 10 pair of these insoles over the years. First pair in about 1995. Still have and use the first pair. I have also recommended them to many people who have purchased. It started after two failed attempts to have professional custom orthotics made. We will never be without SOLE orthotic insoles!


Pain relief

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

Great comfort

I changed from my traditional cork from SOLE to try these. I was not disappointed! I have a wide toe box and very pronated feet. These help me to last standing & walking much longer than with just shoes only.


Life Changing

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


Highly recommended

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


Amazing Customer Service

I rarely write reviews online but thought that the excellent customer service I received from Tim warranted one. The size I originally ordered didn't fit me well and when I reached out to customer service they were amazing! It kept a few different orders/tries to get the footbed that was right for me but now I'm very happy. The footbed is comfortable and SOLE really went above and beyond to make sure that I got something that fit my needs. They have had the best customer service I've ever experienced with any company.


Foot Saver

My first pair was purchased to help eliminate plantar fasciitis in my right foot. It worked! My second pair was purchased so that I wouldn't have to transfer to other shoes. My third pair was purchased for trail runners and my forth pair for golf shoes. These can handle everything and they don't mind getting wet and staying that way all day. I tried other brands as well as other SOLE styles. These are my SOLE Mates!


Don't Leave Home Without Them

I put SOLE insoles in every shoot, boot and ski boot I own. They never fail to provide superior support and comfort.


Nice inserts!

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


Forever satisfied

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


great support

SOLE offers great support in so many ways. Excellent product, great customer service. New Active SOLEs placed in my hiking shoes, and immediately climbed the mountain behind my Colorado cabin. Perfect. Brian


Active insoles

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


Love these!

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


Love my Sole

Best addition to every shoe. Can't bet it. Get me my SOLE. Thank You


Love these!

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


Supportive Insoles

The custom moldable arch support is fantastic. These alieviated my shin splints, for the most part, in unsupportive shoes. Also the recyclable, minimalist packaging is commendable. Will buy again.


The best insoles - keep my feet healthy

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


Longtime use

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


Arch support

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


Walk in Comfort

Recommended by my physical therapist who studied the benefits of expensive custom orthotics vs Sole orthotics. She chose SOLE for me, and I am very happy! Adjustment period is short and walking is now comfortable again. I have purchased them for my 30-40 year old kids who also love SOLE now!


SOLE Insert

Excellent quality, comfort and longevity! Been ordering this for many years. I have always needed extra cushioning for protection of joints and it would now seem foreign not to have these always in my running shoes!


SOLE for the WIN

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


Love My Red Soles

Simply Love This SOLE. Would not buy new shoes without a new set!


I love these insoles!

I have been a fan of SOLE insoles for nearly 15 years. Got into them when I first started running ultramarathons and have never looked back. I use them in all of my running shoes instead of the factory insoles and they really make a difference. These specific insoles I have installed in a pair of zero drop Brooks pure flow shoes. Pulled the OEM insoles out and replaced with the SOLE ones - perfect fit. I have sometimes heated and shaped them per the directions, however for this pair I just used them out of the box and they are working great. Did not even have to trim them at all. For the past couple of years I have not been heat shaping them, really did not notice a difference so I skip that step. This particular is a little too thick for my racing flats, for that application I used a set of SOLE thin insoles. Extremely comfortable, helps me keep going on really long runs, and for some reason they really minimize any lower leg soreness that I typically get when I do not run with my SOLE insoles. Highly recommended, particularly for anyone running long distances (marathon +). They are durable, comfortable, and an essential part of my running gear.


Love this product

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


Reliability

These insoles have been outstanding! My previous pair lasted almost 2 years. And I am very happy with them. The heat activated molding is what really turned me on to these. You won't regret your purchase.


Pleasantly surprised

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

Heel spurs.

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


Sole for work

I have been a customer for over 15 years and love my SOLE insoles. I work in a supermarket on concrete floors 9 hours a day. I put these into my slip resistant sneakers and my feet are happy! I love the medium red insoles for work. I use the refer a friend program to get my friends feet happy too.


Glad to be Back

Tried prescription orthodics for a couple of years after using SOLE footbeds, and my foot pain actually increased. Went back to the SOLE footbeds and glad I did. My foot pain will never go away but SOLE has made life more comfortable.


Simply Great Product

I've got multiple pairs that I use in various hiking boots and running shoes. Once they are in, it's like have magic support. They are so much better than the worthless insoles that come with most footwear. My brother switched to these from costly custom insoles and gets the exact same relief while saving well over $100!


Supportive and protective

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


Insole Review

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

These footbeds provide amazing cushioned support and promote healthy alignment for adventure-ready feet.

Walking on a cloud

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


Amazing footbeds!

These footbeds have saved my feet. I can stand much longer in my shoes, and they also make exercise much more enjoyable. My flat feet no longer suffer!


Heel Pain Solved

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


Active Medium for achilles

I have chronic achilles tendonitis. The Active Medium footbeds have given me tremendous relief with my achilles and pronation problems. In the near future I will be buying the thin footbed for narrower shoes. I would highly recommend you try the footbeds. Thanks SOLE...


No turning back!

It's been 4 years now since I began to use SOLE insoles and I've tried several different styles for my needs. Each style has a place in my shoe arsenal. My go to is the Active Medium which lives in my running shoes, my gym shoes, and my every day shoes! There is no turning back now! No new pair of shoes goes without SOLE, and my favorite shoes always get a new pair of insoles when the time is right. I put 'em on my Christmas list every year, and luckily Santa provides! Thanks so much SOLE!


Helps with pronation

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


back home

My feet are happy to be back home in SOLE again.


Love these foot beds!

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


back home

back to wearing sole , my feet appreciate being back home


Walking on Clouds

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


No more plantar fasciitis pain

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


back home

good to be back in Sole products, feet thank me


Insoles

I used to spend $400 on 1 pair of custom orthotics due to very high arches. My SOLE insoles are just as comfortable at a fraction of the price. Love them!


Great Product

Great product that helps my son with proper foot posture.


foot relief

I recently was prescribed orthotics, which are so expensive, but I have supplemented them in other pairs of shoes with SOLE insoles quite effectively!


My experience says these are the best

I had been in the running and fitness industry and a runner when I came across SOLE. I've used custom-made orthotics and just about every over the counter brand due to several bouts of plantar fasciitis, until I came across SOLE. Highly rigid orthotics make feet weaker and diminish the runner's ability to use natural mechanics for push off and landing. What I wanted was support but not something akin to plywood underfoot. My running buddies used to call me plywood because I would wear supportive running shoes AND orthotics. CLOMP CLOMP here I come! So I began to experiment with several different brands of orthotics and since I was in the industry it wasn't cost prohibitive. I tried SuperFeet, Powerstep, SofSole, even Dr. Scholls. Despite the claims, they did not seem to mold to my foot and ranged from too soft to too rigid. In addition as a runner I was always talking to experts about biomechanics and stride. Just because of have flexible arches, I thought, doesn't mean I should not be able to find my most efficient stride (I was running up to 65 miles a week). I came across SOLE and with my usual skepticism, tried them. With different thicknesses of their base, the SOLE orthotics immediately offered support and comfort. I didn't feel as if I had a rigid board underfoot but a support that seemed to move with my shoe. I even moved to a neutral shoe (Saucony Ride among others). The SOLE orthotic provided the right amount of resistance to pronation without eliminating it entirely so I was still able to move efficiently. I loved how with use they molded to my foot (You don't have to heat them, they're moldable through use). I have several pairs I use in casual shoes (thin) and in work and hiking boots (thick) and rely on SOLE for support. They are durable; don't tell the company this but I used the thin in my casual/business shoes for three years (way beyond the life expectancy, I know and I've since replaced them). Not only are the products great, I like the company, its mission and their customer service. I like that they were founded in Canada and do business worldwide (including offices/warehouse in the US). If you think this review is a little gushing, my apologies. I have very few companies I truly love and support. Sole is one of the few.


love Sole products

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


Can't go without SOLE

I can't live without my SOLES! In all my shoes - work shoes, dress shoes, boots. They are the only relief when it comes to plantar fasciitis issues. (The flip flops and sandals are my summer choice as well!)


Great insert for running

For years, I've previously used an expensive, custom made orthotic insert in my running shoes. The SOLE footbed was a much less expensive alternative, and fit easily into my Saucony Triumph ISO 5 shoes in place of the existing factory insert. The SOLE footbed does take a little time to break in and assume the correct shape, but overall they do an excellent job as running shoe inserts.


Amazing "Soles"!

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


SOLE insole

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


Terrific product

Been using SOLE brand insoles since 2008. I only trust them to protect my feet, legs, and back. Great product and highly recommended.


Life changing

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


say goodbye to foot pain

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


All Star

Great addition to my active footwear! I transfer these insoles between my hiking and biking shoes. They provide a solid platform to stand on in rugged and uneven terrain. Just an all around great footbed to move from shoe to shoe.


Awesome footbeds

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