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!

Comfort

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


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.


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.


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!


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


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.


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.


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!


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.


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!’


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.


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.


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!


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.


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.


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!!!!


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.


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.


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.


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)


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.


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.


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.


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.

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 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.


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.


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.


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.


4th Pair - Love Them!

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

Happy Joints and Happy Feet

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


Knee problems solved

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


Perfect for Joint Pain of all Types

I have been using SOLE insoles for almost 20 years. They're comfortable, affordable, and they prevent ankle pain, tendonitis, and now that I'm older, all kinds of other joint pain. Thus, when I purchased another pair for myself, I also purchased a couple of pairs for my husband. He has been complaining of foot pain from bunions and knee pain. He works in HVAC so he is on his feet all day at work. He also lifts weights for multiple hours a day. Since he started using the insoles, he isn't complaining about his bunions anymore. He says they are comfortable, and they have definitely helped with his pain.


Best Insoles on the Market

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

SOLE for the WIN

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


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!


Love these foot beds!

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


Finally, a shoe insert that works!

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

Relief

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

Best arch support ever

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

Jennifer Muranyi


Thank you

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

I was able to walk for hours using the sole footbeds

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

VERY GOOD but . . .

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


Happy Troops

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


Long Lasting cusion and high arch support.

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

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.

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.

Thanks for introducing a great product

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

Thank you so much for this product

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

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.
