So happy!!!

This is the absolute best little boot ever! I have struggled for years with foot, knee, hip issues unless I wore my running shoes. Then I found SOLE! These cute little boots are heaven to my feet! Comfortable, easy to put on (zipper at the back) and look super with leggings, tights etc!


Living Pain Free

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


The Bombdiggity of Flips

These are the bombdiggity! I have been wearing them essentially everyday for the last 2.4 years. The algae foam is insanely comfortable and molded perfectly to my feet. The synthetic nubuck strap holds my foot in place without being too restricting. The strap fits snug at first, but after wearing consistently in my house for a couple weeks, they fit like a dream! I love the lower profile for my flat feet, as the SOLE footbed provides all the support I need. If you suffer from tired feet and sore knees, these are a must buy!


Perfect fit every time

I have plantar fasciitis and I purchased a pair of SOLE brand inserts. They can be warmed and molded to your foot. They worked so well, I bought two more pairs. I no longer have to buy those rubbery one size fits all inserts. My feet feel so much better and I know they are the perfect fit every time.


Good quality, thick and supportive sole

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


No more foot pain

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


Walking on Clouds

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


SOLE arch support insoles

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


So wonderful to be able to wear flip flops again

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


Like magic

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


Great foot bed!

This foot bed is incredible. I have been running and ski touring with it and I am very impressed. Highly recommend!


Finally, I made the right choice this summer

I have been using SOLE inserts with a met pad for a few years. Having bought inexpensive sandals year after year I wanted better quality and a met pad to deal with metalargica (sp?) SOLE was an obvious choice and the Mendocino is perfect with adjustable width, super comfortable foot bed and a met pad! I use these every day, $$ well spent.


No Problem

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


Perfect for my work shoes!

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


Nice

I had these for about 2 months. Wore them on vacation to the beach and it took a couple of days for my feet and the sandals to adjusts and conform. Now that they have they feel great and I reach for these over my Olukai’s. Now they just need to make a couple of versions of these in brown with a sweat absorbing foot bed!


Huge improvement

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


Comfy

I've been wearing the Performance Wide Thin insoles for a month and I'm in love. These insoles are so incredibly comfortable. it truly isn't exaggerating to say they've changed how I thought about all my shoes. I used to have no insoles in any of my shoes despite being someone who walks everywhere, and I don't think I'll ever be able to go back. The insole molds to my foot perfectly hugs it without making it hot.

Most Comfortable Sandals

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


Comfortable

New SOLEs are comfortable. Just had hammertoe surgery and the new footbeds are helping rehab the foot.


Catalina flip flops

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


Foot pain

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


Incredible reduction I'm foot pain

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


My Shoes

I really like the feeling of comfort I get from the shoe, the foot is just right along with where the arch is,it gives me the support I need along with the balance. The reason I bought the product is I have plantar fasciitis and I was looking for a comfortable shoe for the summer. The material is just right for the summer weather. I found out about your shoes from the internet. Thank you


Pure comfort

This is my third paid of SOLE flips and they are the answer to my foot problems. My plantar fasciitis is resolved wearing these.


Great replacement for the spongy factory insole.

Great product, needed more arch support than what came with my work boots. I did go with the met pad, which took some getting used to. Basically the met pad is a small bump on the insole between the arch and just short of the ball of your foot. If I order again, I will not order the met pad. It does not show up on any pictures on the website, it would be nice if the website offered some side profiles of the insole, showing the detail of the met pad option.


Excellent foot bed

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


Great support

I love the support of these with the metatarsal pad. I don't have metatarsalgia or other foot pathologies, but these are quite comfortable. I wish these came in the wide as they're even more comfortable to me than the plain version. I bought these for my new hiking boots and they fit well within the boot after trimming. They bring my heel slightly out of the heel pocket, but as I'm breaking in these new boots, I don't expect to see a problem with rubbing.


Ahhhhhh!

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


Very comfortable

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


Perfect soles

I discovered these footbeds several years ago and loved them. I have high arches and these insoles are perfect for support. They shape to my foot. I have these in all of winter boots and the lifestyle model are in my shoes.


SOLE is number one

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


I can count on SOLE

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


Husbands feet are happy now

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


Pain relief!

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

Significant improvement in foot pain

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


Best out there…

I have been purchasing SOLEs for years and tell everyone I know they are the only brand to buy for not just a good fit, but if you have any issues, back, hip or feet etc, they are the best for proper support. They last for years, so when I say I have been buying them for years, I just have many pairs. The quality is by far the best on the market and they mould to your foot and are so comfortable from the first time on you can wear them for long walks with no issues. Also, the customer support is fabulous.

Excellent

I had been looking for these for a while, as my size wasn't readily available, so when I saw they were in stock, I didn't hesitate. I have morton's neuroma, particular in my left foot, and have to think about proper footwear constantly. I already use several pairs of SOLE customized insoles, so I knew the quality and effectiveness. I've been wearing the Mateo Sport Slides for about a month now, and they're excellent. Fit is perfect, support is exactly what I need, and the quality is great, so they should last a long time. The look is nice also. Very happy with my purchase.


Wonderful

I put these in some cycling shoes that had minor support and they were much improved. I have high arches and a weak right ankle from an old injury. I got the insoles with the hope of improving support for my bad ankle as the more I exercise the more discomfort I feel on it. So far it has helped. I am able to ride further and my feet don't go numb. I think the met pad is a great addition. I was not sure if it would help or fit in the small shoe but the people at sole are right. It just helps your foot conform naturally. It doesn't just take up space, it fills the space and helps your foot feel natural. They fit the small shoes well. The size ten insole required minor trimming to fit a 9.5 shoe. I think the cork is a great material. I am happy to use anything that is recycled or helps the environment in any way.


Foot problem corrector!

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


customer journeys

I bought my first SOLE footbeds, heavily discounted, at a Sierra Trading. I had never purchased a footbed (that wasn't for ski boots) previously. I actually never even thought about buying footbeds for my regular shoes. I have a low arch and low volume foot so found that the first SOLES did a nice job of supporting the arch and also taking up some room in a slightly-too-wide dress shoe. Let me say that I'm in my 50s and drink a fair amount of wine, so the "ReCORK" initiative struck a cord with me as we're avid recyclers. Fast forward a year and I see an ad for SOLE and notice that my first pair are shot. now I buy TWO. And I love them! Great fit and support and I can rotate them in and out of various shoes. They make good shoes better. The title is "customer journey" and I feel that there are lots of people out there like me...who don't really consider paying a premium over the cost of the shoes for footbeds. But trying is believing. Anyway, great product! I like the frequency (1-2/month) of marketing outreach, and keep up the good work!


Best flip flops I ever had

I had a pair of balboa flip flops for several years without them breaking despite me wearing them every day and in rugged conditions. I hurt my foot a few years ago surfing so a stable footbed is important to me especially since I wear flip flops year round every day. Unfortunately my first pair got stolen at the beach. So I decided to get the same pair again as I was so happy with it. Doing so was a bit of a struggle as I am now living in Mexico and Sole doesnt ship here. As I was going to the states a few weeks later I just had them shipped there and waited a few weeks for them. I love that they use nuissance algae for the footbed, that way I can help clean up an environmental problem.


Worth the money

I just purchased my 2nd pair of these flip flops. The first ones I had, lasted about 3 years. I had originally purchased them to help get past my foot injury which required a lot of support. (Plantar Fasciitis). That problem is long gone & now I just buy them for the quality. I would recommend them for anyone that needs good arch support.


Able to Hike Again

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


Best garden boots ever!

I have pins and plates in my one ankle. Balance and spending lots of time on uneven terrain have been an ongoing issue for me all the years since my foot surgeries. Wet ground and garden beds are the most challenging areas for my feet to spend time. I bought these Repel boots to try and replace my rubber gardener boots that have been killing my feet. Mid way through life of my existing boots I had put a pair of SOLE inserts in them. This had provided some relief but because I had ordered thick ones to try and provide insulation from cold the boots ended up being too tight. These boots are water resistant and fabulously comfortable. I can spend a whole day in the garden and my feet still feel great! Much more stable so calf muscles, toes everything don't feel exhausted when I come in. Just wish I had got them sooner. Michelle

Liked previous version better

I have been a great fan of SOLE. I own a dozen pair of footbeds and have them in all my shoes, but favorites have been the Mateo Slides. I am on my 5th pair of them and recently purchased a new pair. I like the previous version better and the tops were more rigid and kept the foot in place much better. The new versions seems much more stretchy and more difficult to keep on my feet, especially when i am driving.


Super comfy, good support

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


Happy feet

I bought the SOLE inserts as I needed a full support insole following foot surgery two years ago. My feet have gone through a lot. I have a high arch and most shoes do not. I bought two pairs and have them in my most used footwear. The support is ideal and the materials used feel great. The SOLE inserts are continuing to prove a great purchase for me and as winter arrives I will be on them every day.


Foot comfort

Been using SOLE insoles for a long time, only insoles that I have. All my athletic shoes, hunting boots and casual shoes have them. They have prevented many potential foot problems.


Perfect for morton's neuroma

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


helped relive bottom foot pain

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


The definitive answer to foot pain

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

great product

I have been wearing orthotic inserts for 20 years. I have tried every other product out there, SOLE inserts the best by far. I have been wearing the Active Medium with Met Pad for 3 months and they perform VERY WELL. I have also worn the Work Medium insoles for 2 years, they are great! I have a collapsed arch in one foot. these insoles are made of very resilient materials. I highly recommend the product.


Ms

I am flat foot and my feet were hurting me so I decided to try SOLE to see how good they are. When I put them in my sneakers they were so comfortable and my feet didn't hurt. I love my SOLE footbeds and I am looking down the road to ordering more!


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 insole!

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


Extremely comfortable

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


Immediate relief

I find the SOLE insole with Met Pad provided relief for my foot issues. The insole sneakers with no trimming and seem to be of a high quality Shipping was reasonable and the company provided transactional feedback in a timely manner


The BEST flips in the WORLD!

I have bought SOLE flips ever since my accident that damaged my left foot. My Physiotherapist recommended them and I have worn them since 2009. Only recently both pairs finally wore out and I immediately ordered two more pairs. Unfortunately I couldn't see what size the old ones were as the number wore out so i guessed wrong and they were a 1/2 size too small. But they still kind of worked and in a week they felt fine. i still ordered the next size up and they were perfect. As a bonus , the smaller ones fit my granddaughter who also loves them! So 5 stars!


Happy Feet

These insoles have been exactly what I have needed. I have battled several years of foot cramps while skiing and hiking. I learned from a foot specialist my metatarsal pad needed more support. He told me about SOLE company. I purchased the cork and non cork versions of the met pad-medium-and loved the cork. I liked the non cork but have purchased -a total of 4 of these. They fit perfectly in my ski boots and skates as well as, my hiking boots and tennis shoes. I swap them between lots of my footwear and will not go out without them. LOVE THEM!! Buy these!! GREAT company-they TOTALLY stand behind their product. I have told so many of my friends about them. Be active, be comfortable, be in SOLE products! The sizing is right on!!


Answer to foot issues

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


Great flips!

I love to wear the Beach flips at the end of the day, because the anatomical shape cradles my foot like a custom orthotic.


Can't do without these!

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


Great product

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


Great purchase

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


I SWEAR by SOLE !

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


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

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


Liked the soles so much I got the shoes

These SOLEs, and l like both the thin and thin + meta pad inserts, are awesome for running. They fit easily in my shoes, and I didn't even need to trim them. My feet feel better as well as my knees after a 5 mile run. I'm an older runner, so support in the feet is needed. I liked the SOLEs so much that I ordered two of the ReCORK shoes with the same foot beds. I used to be a superfeet fan, but now will only get SOLEs for my shoes.


Comfortable shoe!

I love that the materials are not animal products. They fit like a kid glove. The footbed is very firm and gives a sense of enclosing your foot, but be warned that it is not a cushiony feeling. The sole has grip on dry surfaces, but I have a feeling I won't be using it in the winter. All in all a terrific ankle boot.


Bye bye foot pain

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


Days Without Foot Pain

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


No more pain

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


I SWEAR by SOLE !

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


Opinion

Received the product in very quick time. The product is as advertised. The only problem was the fitting. First, it is very tight to get your foot in and once you manage that, the fitting is extremely tight, especially with your small toe being squeezed. Yes I did buy the right size and have not had any problems with other products that I have purchased. Unfortunately since it was bought on final sale I can not return it.


Walking in clouds

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


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.


Great sole

Comfortable. Molded to my foot. No rubbing or red pressure spots. Made sneakers better than ever. Loved the materials. Durable.


Love Love LOOOVE

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


Great insole

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


They're great!

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

great product

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


Fabulous foot comfort

I really don't like squishy inserts. I have high arches and a narrow heal and these help cup my heal and support my arch. They are now in my running sneakers, shoes, and hiking boots. I won't wear shoes without them if I'm going to be on my feet for hours!


No More Foot Pain

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


return customer

no complaints here, this is my second pair [1st pair is still going strong, I just got sick of switching insoles every time I switch my shoes, and these have a little more cushion which is appreciated]. I have very high arches that lead to a foot injury last summer and stopped me in my tracks. My podiatrist recommended insoles all the time, not only while running. I'm able to walk/hike/backpack/run/race comfortably now, and I appreciate that SOLE is sustainably minded.


Versatile Insole for a Great Price

I've been buying SOLE foot beds for years now and have used them in a variety of applications : hunting, cross country skiing, mountain biking, trial running and hiking. I love the heat moldable feature as well. I am grateful for the quality of SOLE!

Cute and comfy

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


Incredible

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


Great for running

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


works great

I had purchased the red SOLE insoles on the advice of a foot Dr. (I needed met pads but not found on the red ones) I found them so thick that my shoes were tight. I had no clue that there were grey ones that were thinner so tried them and they work great! I would advise anyone that needs thinner and especially with met pads to try these out. They are comfortable and thin!


Feet are in love

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


Great Insoles

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


Fallen Arch Saver!

Could not survive without these insoles. Showed them to my foot doctor years ago and he was even impressed. Keep up the good work!


Orthotics

I've been using SOLE orthotics for years and have not had a foot problem. Previously I suffered from plantar fascitis. The only question came from an orthopedist friend who questioned the benefit of stepping into the orthotic to mold it to your foot. She said that the right was to mold an orthotic was to create the correct foot stike, not just mold the misaligned one. But, so far, so good.


So far so good!

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


Game changer

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


technical review

My name is Chrissy Brewer and I am a Certified Pedorthist and a Certified Orthotic Fitter and I love SOLE flips and slides. I have been a fitter for over 27 years and many people just want something easy to put on and lets their feet breathe, especially in the summer. The way SOLE supports the foot and the way it aligns the body is exceptional. I recommend them to anyone who wants sandals and I also recommend them to the diabetics I fit for shoes to help them stay compliant with wearing something on their feet, even when they get up at night to go to the bathroom. I wear them myself and have gotten them for all of my family. Make more, they run out of stock quickly and don't ever stop, I wouldn't know what to do without mine. :)


A MUST HAVE!

Love, Love, Love these insoles! Was recommended to them initially by a sports doctor for my son's bout with Sever's 2 years ago. They truly helped him get through that time, until he grew out of the illness. It didn't stop there for us, however. They are in every sneaker I own as well as my son's. I walk 5 miles or more a day, at least 3 times per week and my son is a very active teenager with baseball and other sports. They are well made and insure incredible comfort in our footwear but for us, also help with foot and leg fatigue due to our athletic lifestyles. I cannot recommend them enough. At this point, they are so crucial in our footwear, I stock up on them to insure they're here waiting in our home for any new sneaker purchases that come in, a MUST HAVE!


Offers Stability

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


Walk again

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


Worth every penny

I feel Softec Ultra insoles have saved me from a lot of foot problems as I have gotten older. We have high arches and am on our feet a lot. We are in our 60's. I first bought them in a military clothing store. Many military members were using them during overseas deployments. I used them during my deployment. I have tried some of the other types, but come back to the SOLE Softec Ultra. It's been over 15 years and I have some of the original soles in boots that don't receive lot of use. Now my wife is sold on them. She had a pair of hiking boots ready to be thrown out. I replaced the factory insole with a Softec Ultra thick and she said they felt like a new pair of boots! We don't heat them, but let them form to our feet over time. They are expensive, but save money over the long run.


just the right product :)

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


Active Thick

Product is very good. Really helped with my foot pronation. I have been wearing them every day for about 6 months. They are made of a pretty robust material so I think they will last for a long time


A new beginning

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


Works very well for my metatarsal pain

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


The Best Foot Support

I have severe flat feet and this support is the ONLY one that actually works for me. I have been wearing this support for over 10 years now. I hope they never discontinue this GREAT support!

A little hard

I have two pairs of the Catalina Sport flip and just love them. However, the cork sole for me on this pair are a little hard. I am older and need more padding for wearing all day at work. Nice and narrow footbed and stay on my foot well. Look great!


Worth it

These insoles for plantar fasciitis work great. I've had PF for over 5 years and have tried everything. Rested, stretched, iced, and even bought $300 professional insoles from the podiatrist office after they scanned my foot for perfect shape. These insoles worked just as good as the $300 pair for much less money. Buy them. Follow the instructions and heat them in oven before stepping in them for a perfect fit.


Nice product

I'm on my feet a lot between work and activities. I've had knee and foot issues over the years so I've tried a few options including custom orthotics. I don't know that these will make all my issues go away but they have helped and they are more comfortable than my custom orthotics that cost 10x the price.


Love these SOLEs!

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


No more foot pain

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


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.


Saved my snowboard boots

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


Focus on strength and support

If you are one of those people that, like myself, you can hear them before you see them because they walk so heavy on their feet then these are the perfect modality! They help with the heavy foot impact that can have just as heavy impact on the rest of the body. Just the right amount of strong cushioning and support for those of us that love to take long walks and enjoy the scenery without discomfort!


Great for chef shoes

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


Bunion Suffering, Foot Care Nurse Recommended

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


Very happy!

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


Substitute for average custom orthotics

I've been wearing 3/4 custom orthotics for 15 years. Many of us who have them, got them for arch lift/support to address plantar fasciitis or mild to moderate pronation, or general foot soreness and fatigue with activity. There's nothing that special about these $500 custom inserts (unless you have a very specific, hard-to-correct problem) that a thoughtfully designed, non-custom insert cannot help with. SOLES are it. I have Active Med, Thick, and Thin for different shoe types with Met Pad. They work for all my activities - hiking, walking, jogging, or just standing in the kitchen. The quality is excellent, no fraying around the edges, resist odors. Once in my shoes, I forget about them. Met Pad: it's minimal. I can't tell the difference between a SOLE insert I have without it and the ones with it. For a reference point, the German shoe maker Finn Comfort makes cork orthotic inserts for their shoes (standard) with a metatarsal hump that is more substantial and you can feel the difference.


My sole inserts

I have been wearing SOLE inserts for a few months now. I stand all day at my job and the inserts seem to conform to my foot and take a lot of the pressure off. They are very durable and hold up in my shoe. I play tennis and they don't slide around and help with protecting my heel.


Encouraged

A couple of years ago my brother started telling me about how much he enjoyed both the SOLE insoles and some of their footwear that he had started wearing. Since that time he has made repeated purchases and continued to rave about how much better his legs felt when using/wearing their products. I have suffered with serious back issues for half of my life and finally decided to give your insoles a try placing them in a good sturdy pair of Salomon hiking shoes. While my back issues continue I have to say I find I'm able to walk further and with less discomfort than was previously the case. I did purchase 3 pairs of insoles and will be using them in my other footwear. I like that I am able to heat the insole making it more pliable and better able to conform to my particular foot dynamics.


Joe Byrnes

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


Foot pain no more

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


Can't live without them

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


Great for sneakers; too thick for Crocs

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


Met Pad is awesome

Tried a SOLE with Met pad this time - it has really helped with my foot neuropathy. It has gone from frequent to occasional since I started using it.


Best walking SOLEs

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


Happy feet

I work 8 hours a day on my feet on concrete floors and at the end of the day my feet and legs are tired! The SOLE Work insoles fit easily into my shoes and molded to me foot shape perfectly (I used the warm oven method they recommend). They definitely support my arches and help my feet and legs to feel a little springier at the end of the day! Great value for insoles that work just as well as my orthotics.


Relief from pain

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


Foot pain no more

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


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

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


Very functional

These boots are super waterproof. I have foot neuropathy and the souls provide great comfort. Lightweight and very easy to slip on, make these my go to wet weather boot. Liked them so much, I bought a second pair.


Greet insole for cycling

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


Best insoles ever

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

Great footwear

I was on the hunt for a shoe that has no latex in them. I have foot psoriasis. These shoes are the most comfortable with cork soles. I can wear them all day with no flair up. You've got to try them! I was skeptical at first but no doubt SOLE shoes are worth every penny!


Good boot to provide support when outdoors

Bought the boot since I needed stability support for my flat feet and one I could use outdoors in the winter. I have the SOLE shoe and because of the support quality, using the boot will allow me to use it during winters in Wisconsin. SOLE shoes have shown to last long as far as continuous foot support and keeping its wear and tear quality.


Cycling Shoes and Ski Boots

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


Best non custom footbed!

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


Great product

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


Thank Heavens for these insoles!

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


Love it!

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


Morton’s Neuroma Reflief

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


Happier feet healthier pets

We offer a pair of SOLE to dog owners who commit to a weight control program for their pet. We are excited to help improve foot comfort so that the owners are not inhibited from exercising their dog. Our dog owners and their dogs are getting healthier one step at a time. Thank you SOLE!


Joint pain went from a 7 to a 1

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


narrow but crazy comfortable

i was surprised at how narrow these were in the toe box. even for my Nikes that run on the narrow side my big toe slips off the edge. that being said i will not be taking them out of my Nikes any time soon. they are so comfortable! I feel like my foot is being hugged. I originally bought them for my Altra hiking boots but I'm glad they found a home in my other shoes. I will be ordering them in wide for the boots soon.


The BEST

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


Perfect Comfort

I had surgery for a torn posterior tibial tendon which caused my arch to drop. I needed something that would form to my foot while having solid arch support. I've been wearing SOLE inserts for my shoes for about 2 years now. I absolutely love them! They are so comfortable. I like that I don't even need to trim them down to fit my shoes. I have recommended SOLE to family and friends.


Comfortable

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


Very comfortable

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


Quality footbed

I use SOLE foot beds for a variety of applications and now own several pairs. I appreciate their support and heat molding capabilities.


Why pay 500.00 dollars when you can wear SOLES

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

Amazing Insoles

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


Saved my feet

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


Incredible

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


Excellent Product

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


Saved my feet!

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


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!


Cork is the way

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


My second pair

I purchased it at the recommendation of my dr for my foot issue! These are the first real soles with a good enough arch to support my arches! My foot is getting better, especially when I'm wearing my SOLE footbeds! This is the second pair I bought and since it work so well for me I bought them for my son and husband, my son is a wear house worker so they were good for his work boots!


First time and feels great

With a recent foot injury, I was recommended SOLE products. In discussions it was found these would be best fit and value. I find them comfortable and am happy to support a Canadian company with high values in ethical products

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!


Comfortable and functional

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


Even better than the rest of my SOLE sandals

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


My favorite shoe

I was at a bicycle race in Big Bear CA several years ago. I needed a pair of flip flops and saw a retailer selling SOLE flip flops. I thought they were fairly expensive compared to what I have paid in the past. I tried them on and decided to make the purchase. They were so comfortable I decided to challenge myself. How long can I wear them day after day. I wore them to work, weekends for three months. Unbelievably comfortable. I bought a second pair. My first pair is tan and do have a different foot pad then the second pair. My favourite is the tan pair I am finding them harder to find. None the less, I am sold on SOLE flips flops.


Custom orthotic hiller

After a diagnosis of low arches by a podiatrist I was putting $350.00 orthotics into my shoes. This meant romoving the original insole and buying larger shoes to get my foot and orthotic into the shoe. I compared the arch height and support of the orthotic to the SOLE product. They were the same! So my first purchase were in my work boots for one year. The same support as the ororthotics but with a more comfortable fit. These things are great. Easy to trim to match the "footprint" of the original insole. Super comfortable. Super supportive. Great price.


They beat custom inserts

I have been wearing SOLE inserts for 3 years now. I am very flat footed and have tried many different kinds of custom inserts, never getting the relief I have found using SOLE. I am on my feet many hours of the day, on a cement floor and uneven grounds. My feet are much happier using SOLE than my custom inserts. This time I tried the Met Pad and it is even better! I bought 2 more right away. If you haven't tried SOLE inserts yet, you should definitely give them a try. You won't regret it.


Beyond expectations!

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


Awesome - Comfortable and Stylish

I used to hate wearing Flip sandals. My feet would ache due to a lack of support. This sandal is amazing because it is minimalistic and supports the arch of my foot very well. Thank you SOLE for another awesome product! I wear your products everyday in all of my footwear! My feet and hips and lower back thank you!!


Insole review

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


Great solution to a painful foot problem

I've been using SOLE insoles for years and they have been great. I now walk over 30 miles per week and over the past 18 months, I've started to have foot pain. I do have Morton's toe and suffered with a neuroma. I tried several different approaches to support and cushion my metatarsal area but all were problematic - slipping pads, pads that didn't conform to my foot, etc. I discovered the SOLE with built in met support about two months ago. They have been a lifesaver. I have them for my walking shoes and also for my everyday shoes and they have completely erased the foot pain. I also bought a pair for my husband's walking shoes and they have worked for him as well. I highly recommend these SOLE footbeds to alleviate ball of the foot and toe pain.


LOVE

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


LOVE!!!

I absolutely LOVE these flip flops. I live in SW Florida and thus live in flip flops. There is nothing like the arch support that is in these flip flops. My plantar fasciitis does not flare when I'm wearing these...even for hours! I have a narrow foot and have problems finding flip flops that fit my feet well and I have no problem with the Balboa Flip. So comfortable. Highly recommend.

Stewart Wood


Great flips

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

Caroline Heuermann


No more pain!

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


SOLE Sandals and Footbeds

I have been wearing SOLE sandals and using the footbeds for a number of years now and love them. I have foot issues and this is an affordable way to ensure that I have the proper support at all times. Just purchased the Mendocino Sport Slide and love them. A perfect "house" shoe. I highly recommend SOLE products, especially if you have issues with your feet or are on your feet for most of the day.


Instantly comfortable

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


Awesome insoles!

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


My go to shoe

My foot doctor recommended the SOLE footwear for times when I need arch support around the house, I have had 4 pair now and love the feel


I would recommend

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

Thomas Stewart Wood


Great footwear

I have been wearing the Monterey flips for about a year and just purchased a second pair. I had a bad case of Plantar fasciitis and started wearing these as slippers around the house and now I have very little discomfort in my foot. They are very comfortable to wear and fit really well. They are constructed with quality materials. They are the only flips I will wear now.


Inserts

This is the 3rd Pair I have bought for Ed Hicks to put I his rubber boots. Rubber boots with steel toes are hard enough to walk in but with the SOLE inserts gives the boots structure. This product is comfortable and fits the foot well.


Comfort

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


Super comphy

Love those casual thin inserts, they were a bit longer in some shoes , so It is very easy to adjust the thin ends at the top of them, they fit so great snd feels marvellous when u standing all day in flats.. the cork feels soo great on bare foot also ... truly great thins, thank you SOLE!


SOLE for my Soul

I purchased the Active Wide Thick inserts for my everyday, go-to running shoes because this was a cheaper option than replacing my shoes altogether, especially the shoes themselves were still good - they just needed new beds! The Active Wide Thick inserts fit perfectly into my New Balance 860s (v10) and made my feet feel like I was stepping into a brand new pair of shoes. I'm so glad I did this! The only thing that I wish I'd done differently: placed the beds into the oven to mold them to my feet a little quicker (as prescribed in the instructions). How cool! Otherwise, my right foot for whatever reason, it took a few days to break them in as it would for any new pair of shoes. I've had my footbeds for a month now and they are so comfortable. I will continue to buy from SOLE as I have for years now. LOVE their Cork sandals too!


Better for slender feet

I bought these shoes because I love the feel of the SOLE footbed. I ordered my usual size 8 but found the shoes to be a little short and narrow in the front so that I couldn't spread and relax the ball of my foot as well as my toes. I thought of ordering up to an 8-1/2 but decided to try the men's version in a size 7 instead. They fit perfectly as the toe box is wider and much more comfortable. Plus , I prefer having the laces to customize the fit of the shoe. The 8-1/2 women's might have worked also but, with shipping, is difficult to try on.

Karen Turner


I love this flip!

The Laguna Flip is thinner and lighter and the support is not quite as substantial as the Sport Flip. With that said, I love this flip! The footbed is cork with a non-slip surface that allows the shoe to stay on my foot, and it looks a little "dressier" than the others. The fit is right on. I will purchase this again.

Sophianne Lalancette


Love them

I was having a lot of knee hip and lower back pain, so I decided to look for "healthy" shoes. They are great! I was worried at first because the sole is quite hard, and there is a weird bump in the middle, but it is very comfortable and did help with my pain. I added a heel wedge for pronation and my pain is gone when I wear these shoes. I cut off the heel part because it made the shoes difficult to put on and take off, and folded down it was quite uncomfortable. I use these as house shoes because of my knee hip back pain so taking off and on easily is important. They stay on well even without the heel part, however I need to wear thick socks otherwise the shoes rub and it hurts. I measured my foot according to size guide and it fits fine, I think even for feet the are a bit wide they should be good

Mark wooldridge


Best ever

I've worn the cork flips for years, after I had a round of plantar fasciitis. The arch support is sturdy and comfortable, year after year. The cork flips worked to solve that foot issue. They look great and last several seasons. My satisfaction is so high, that I buy several pairs each season so I can rotate them based on beach use or casual dress use. I hope they make an indoor slipper" to keep my feet warm in the winter.


Great flip

I love the Costa Flip! Finally I can wear my favorite type of summer shoes and have excellent support for my plantar fasciitis. The fit is great and the solid black color goes with everything. Would definitely recommend this flip to anyone with foot problems. Very comfortable.


Best Orthotics

I have Rheumatoid arthritis and plantar fasciitis. These footbed have kept me in my feet! My first pair were purchased in 1995. I have purchased many since in all thicknesses. After having custom orthotics made twice and neither being satisfactory, a cobbler recommended these. What a relief. I own many pair in two sizes and thicknesses for use in different styles of shoes And highly recommend for anyone with foot or joint issues!


Foot pain

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


Pain relief

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

Happy Joints and Happy Feet

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

Lorne Mackie


WOW!!

The first wearing of the flip was fine it did, however, take a few days to be able to wear them again given my delicate feet had to toughen up - meaning the scabs had to heal up. I equate this not to the flip but due to the fact it has been a long time since I had actually worn flip flops. The feel of the shoe is not like any other flip I have tried, given the base it is heavier but it is way more comfortable than others I have worn. I have a very high arch so I have to be picky with what I buy and the way these form to your foot is what lead me to want them in the first place. Having lived in them for several weeks now they have completely formed to my foot and make it a pleasant experience to wear flips flops again!!


Made my Summer Great!

These slides have made all the difference for me to have a fun and active summer. I have a tendinitis along the side of my foot and just like people having plantar fasciitis these slides have made it easy to go for walks on sidewalks, and on the beach. I bought a second pair to use as house shoes. My feet don't get sore when standing for a long time cooking, cleaning, etc. I recommend them to everyone I know!


Comfort and stability

I purchased my first pair of SOLE footwear this summer on the recommendation of a friend. I am delighted with the support my Costa Flip foot bed provides and the strength and comfort of the straps. My feet fit snuggly into the flip and walking is easy no matter what the terrain; grassy slope to the lake, rocky shoreline tippy canoe, or wet pavement in the parking lot. The flips stay one comfortably and my foot doesn't slip and slide all over the place. I love that they are environmentally responsible and designed by a Canadian company!

Mario Merlano


Slick and comfy

This pair give great arch support while looking very elegant on any foot. They can easy handle any wet, sandy or dry environment. I bought a greater size and the fit is just perfect!


Really nice looking shoes

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


Healthy footwear

I have a sesamoid fracture, capsulitis of the 2nd toe and neuroma. I needed a shoe with a met pad and overall support for the healing of my foot. These shoes make a huge difference in my ability to move. Inflammation in my foot changes all the time and this footwear adapts easily with the two adjustable Velcro straps along the top of the shoe. I have been wearing these shoes for a few months and I love the fabrics used on all my Soles! I love the simplicity..... no glitz, no tassels..... I wear SOLE for my health and soul.


Excellent support and cushion

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


So much comfort

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

Great Flip Flop

After a few months of wearing them, my two favorite things about this flip flop are the arch support and the flexibility that the footbed has. The foam helps the footbed to be less hard on my knees than the cork bed was with my last pair of flip flops. I also like that they are so lightweight and you can also get them wet and and they don't make squeaky noises. Although they don't give me as much support as a shoe (I have basically no arch to my foot), this is the best flip flop I've found in all my searching. Definitely five star for me.


Catalina sport flip

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


Relieves foot pain

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


Heel pain GONE

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


Amazing fit and support!

Just got the brown ones delivered. Man ... that brown has to go ... a bit too orange. HOWEVER ... as soon as I laced them up I couldn't believe how great they feel. The support is unbelievable, it's like wearing a great-fitting ice-skate. So I put a bit of Minwax on them to darken them up and ... boom ... a nice darker brown that'll go with all jeans and a wider range of casual pants. I suffer from planter fascia and metatarsalgia and so far these are, excuse the bad pun, footing the bill. I'll definitely be ordering others in the future. P.S. I had ordered plastic sandals from SOLE in the past and they immediately hurt my feet as soon as I put them on; back they went. I took a chance on the cork footbead this time as I'm getting desperate to find good fitting shoes. You won't be disappointed, plus they have great customer support with a good return policy. I know this may sound like an ad for SOLE, but if you're like me and can't find a good pair of comfortable shoes, you'd be very positive too.


Perfection!

I needed something to support my arches and correct my flat foot. These Performance Thins fit perfect into my slippers at home. Like absolutely 100% perfect. I go from the Active Wide Thicks in my steel toed boots all day to these Performance Thins at home. What a dream. Thank you for your very detailed descriptions on what style fits what shoe.


Worth every penny

I have always used some sort of arch support in my shoes. My chiropractor suggested Yoursole.com because of the super cool way your soles support the back of the heel and the arch way. Your description of using an Active Wide for a work boot was spot on. They fit my steel toed boots like a dream. Walking 10K steps a day in these is heaven. Thank you so much for turning my flat foot syndrome back to healthy arches.


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!

Mendocino slide upper hurt toes

My wife and I have a bunch of the footbeds which we really like, and I wanted to get something in a slide that had the same kind of support and quality. So I tried these Mendocino Slide Black in a Men's size 11, but the upper would dig into my toes when I would step forward on either foot. Maybe they would have broken in some over time, but it seemed unlikely that it would change that much and I didn't want to deal with the discomfort for however long that would have taken, so I returned them.

RESPONSE FROM SOLE:
Thank you for your honest review, Mark. We're sorry to hear about your experience with the Mendocino Sport Slides. We always appreciate feedback! Hope you continue enjoying SOLE Footbeds. Take care! The SOLE Team


decent insole for high arches

I'm a distance runner coming back from a foot injury, and my podiatrist suggested searching for orthotic inserts rather than paying $$$ for custom insoles to support my very high arches. I found SOLE insoles to offer a higher arch than others on the market, and I love that these are made with recycled cork. I've been slowly starting to run again after 12 weeks off due to injury, so I've only run in these 1-2miles at a time, 2-3x/week, for the past 5 weeks, though I've also used them in casual shoes for walking. So far I like them, but am not sure they're high enough for my arches. My legs/feet are quite sore by the end of a short run [a new feeling for me, I used to be a marathoner!] but I cannot blame the insoles, this could just be from my injury. I'm happy to see that SOLE Active footbeds are now available with Met Pads, I may have to try one with more cushion! I'm just waiting for the trifecta: active + wide + met pad!


comfort + support

I'm a distance runner coming back from a foot injury, and my podiatrist doesn't want me in non-supportive footwear [or barefoot] all summer! So any time I'm not running or sleeping, I've been LIVING in my Costa Flips, NON-STOP! [walking the dog, running errands, cooking/cleaning in the house] After 5 weeks of everyday use, I must say they are light, comfortable, and supportive. My only complaint is that the arches are not high enough for my super-high arches! There's still a gap, but they're a huge improvement over flat sandals/flip flops. I was afraid I'd be stuck in orthopedic shoes for the rest of my life, I was pleasantly surprised to find SOLE shoes are pretty cute and look forward to buying a closed-toe option this fall for the cooler weather.


Love my Flips!!

Love them. I have Morton's Neuroma in one foot & find the molded shape is just what I needed. They are very comfortable.


5 stars!

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


helped foot pain tremendously!

My husband has had foot pain forever. About 15 years ago, we discovered SOLE inserts and they have helped him tremendously! He uses a pair in all his shoes.


Great insrets

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


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!


Active Wide Thin for Rucking

I'm primarily a Rucker; as in I have a GORUCK Rucker (or two), filled with either 20 or 30 #'s of weight in it, and I head out for timed rucks (mostly); three, four times a week and sometimes more. I shoot for 15 minute miles. So, I try and boogie when I do. I've, also, had several knee surgeries; one of which was a high tibial osteotomy and the others were scopes. So, I enjoy any and as much effective cushioning, balance, and foot help while trying to get my daily recommended cardio in, and the SOLE insoles help me. As an aside, I really enjoy the boots that the above mentioned company makes; however, only for their Tough and Light events. So, I've found myself rotating between New Balance 1080v10's (size 4e's; because my foot is that wide), Atra Torins, and occasionally my new Inov8 TerraUltra's; each, respectively, has in them an ACTIVE WIDE THIN SOLE insole; however, one has a Medium Met Pad (Orange) SOLE Insole. The common thread with these sneakers are: they are have wide toe boxes, and the Active Wide Thin SOLES have really struck the balance of excellent form fitting for me! You see, I used to enjoy running, but no more, because I'm almost 50, it hurts, and really, who LOVES running anyway, and walking for health is great, but it's not as effective as the balance that Rucking offers me; the in-between of running and fast walking, all the while getting cardio!!! Why all the explaining... Well, it is because the above mentioned SOLES have really fit the bill for my situation and what I seek. They have minimized hot spots on my met pads, they allow my toes to splay in the toe boxes, of the above mentioned shoes, and they do so very well. In addition, they offer just the right amount of comfort for me on long rucks; I attribute this to their build; without them in place, the above shoes are actually too squishy when I ruck (carry) 30 pounds of weight or more. I also do a short 45 pound ruck roughly every two weeks (between 1.5 - 3 miles only), and use the SOLES in my Atra's when I do! I would not be able to do that without the SOLES in them, and would instead use my MACV1's. So, it is nice to have that option if I want. Moreover, if you are a rucker, or in a similar situation, and are looking to do miles and miles (think a STAR 50), I recommend the ACTIVE WIDE THIN SOLES; they have served me well for the past few months, and I will continue to buy these.

Comfort and style

Very happy to find these flips from the source in Canada as I've been wearing the brand for years and had difficulty finding them locally when needing to replace them. I live in these flips indoors and out all summer and in winter they serve as my indoor footwear. Before finding SOLE flips at my orthotics provider about 7 years ago I thought I would have to wear only closed shoes and orthotics to relieve my chronic sore feet and knees . However I found that SOLE Monterey flips support my arch and look good, and I have no pain at all. I really like the cork option which I currently have but also have enjoyed the all man made version of the same flip. They are hard-wearing and last for years. I always take a pair with me when I travel for hotels room foot wear, Highly recommended.


Great flip flops

I have really high arches and find it difficult to find a good sandal. These are great! They are very comfortable and have molded to the shape of my foot. I really love them and will definitely be purchasing other SOLE products.


nice fit

Love the color and the fit. Took a day to break in for a perfect fit - I have a high instep and flip flop tie straps seem to be tight at first. The shape / support of the foot bed work great for me. Wear all day and no knee/back tiredness. Well made and holding up well,


Quality of my new insoles

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


Nice and wide

I have been buying SOLE flips for years... they have great comfort, support and if you have wide feet, these Catalina Sport foot beds are what you need!! I can walk for hours and my feet feel great . If you haven't tried Sole you should, you won't regret the purchase...worth every penny! If you have any questions the sales reps will help you select the style for you.


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.


Light and comfortable

I had foot surgery which implied a full reconstruction including ligaments and bones. I constantly use custom made insets in my shoes. I decided to try the men's Balboa Flips with the hope that they would allow me to use flip flops to stay comfortable at home and outdoors without the need if extra inserts. The have totally fulfilled my needs. The are very comfortable and fit perfectly to my foot arch. They are light and my foot has got used to them making them my preferred flips.


Comfort Plus

The insole is perfect for my needs, I put it immediately in my asics ( that I wear for work) I am a foot care nurse. I have high arches, right bunion and prominent metatarsal head where the bunion is. The ordering process went well and I would recommend SOLE for everyone to try. Very comfortable

Shayna stott


love them

I bought the Laguna flip flop because i had foot issues. Walking 5 minutes in any other kind of flip flop style would instantly cause foot and knee pain. With the Laguna Flip I now can slip them on and go for a walk no worries. They look great too!


Amazing comfort

The footbed comfort is unmatched by any other flip-flop I've worn without adding weight that make other more expensive flip-flops difficult to wear for long periods of time. One word of caution is the break-in period. I was overzealous and went on a 5+ mile walk the first time out, a bit of a mistake as the straps wore down my feet pretty good. After a couple more shorter walks, they've broken in nicely and have been nothing but great, I can walk forever in these now without any discomfort or foot fatigue. The hearty SOLE (ha!) ensures a long lift time for these flip-flops.


Awesome

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


Met Pads

They're great. They're a bit less rigid than most SOLE footbeds and that's especially good for the shoes I put them in, which have a fairly hard foot strike. Ever since I started using SOLE footbeds, I have not had plantar fasciitis.


Be different

These shoes are a great way to be comfortable with fashion in mind and have a different option than all the other ankle boots on the market. The sole is obviously super supportive. They fit a touch narrower than most SOLE products but I think they will actually mold to my foot perfectly.

men's exhale purchase

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


Work amazing

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


1 Month review.

I have been using SOLE products for years, mainly the inserts. I am a soldier that regularly wears combat boots for long periods. I have used Han Wags, Lowes, SWATs, Solomon, and Salewa boots over the years. I was originally recommended SOLE as I had a bad case of plantar fascitis around ten years ago. I have not had any foot problems since. So I decided to purchase a pair of shoes that I could use when not in combat boots. Its been about a month, mainly using them due to the recent COVID restrictions, and they have been performing flawlessly. Just as the insoles in my boots, they fit well, despite my right foot is slightly wider than my left. The shoes required no break-in period, and I walked 5 km when I first received them just to feel for any pinch points or friction areas. And none were found. The material is a breathable mesh which has been perfect for the warmer days. The laces are secure and have not come undone unnecessarily. The shoes come with a pair of white laces as well (not my style). Bonus - the wife thinks they look great on me, and I have received compliments from others. (Secretly, I think my wife is tired of me being in boots all the time). The verdict - Buy a pair, you will not be disappointed.


Perfect

Makes my work shoes feel like sneakers. Always impressive foot beds!

Fabulous for plantar fasciitis and everyday comfort

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


Love my new shoes.

I have been wearing these shoes for about a month now. They are my favorite shoes to wear day to day. The foot bed has formed perfectly to my feet and they feel as if they are custom to my feet. I do find them to be warm on my feet during hot days however they do breathe well and therefore are great. The fit is slightly small, so maybe order a half size up.


Can't go wrong!

My family has been a long time purchaser of SOLE sandals, when you need support, but want to wear a sandal, they are the only way to go. These were purchased for my aunt whom had to have her foot fused. It took some convincing, because she was sure she would never be able to wear sandals again. Now, she wishes she would have had them sooner. They provider exactly the support she needs, but she also loves that she can adjust them to fit each foot. As her fused foot is much larger. They are true to size and are so comfortable, she can spend more time on her feet without paying for it. I've since purchased 2 additional pairs, so that she can wear one inside, one outside, and have a back up pair...that's how good they are!!


Best yet!

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


Great product for golf

I started to use SOLE foot beds on the recommendation of my doctor for treatment of planter fasciitis. I use the performance thin foot beds in my golf shoes and they work great. Very glad I acted on my doctors advice!


Lovin the comfort!!

I have been wearing SOLE slippers and inserts for a few years now. I had plantar fascia tears in my left foot from running My podiatrist recommended that I wear supportive slippers and SOLE inserts in my shoes. They have made a big difference in the health of my feet. I love their products!!

Troy Campbell


Worth every penny

Take it from someone who has been wearing custom orthotics for 30 years, best flip flops ever. They easily form to your foot, are very comfortable, and durable. Full marks!


Great product for golf

I started to use SOLE foot beds on the recommendation of my doctor for treatment of planter fasciitis. I use the performance thin foot beds in my golf shoes and they work great. Very glad I acted on my doctors advice!


A classic flip flop

I bought these flip flops for my partner to use around the yard and at the beach. They are comfotable and conform to your foot.


Forever satisfied

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


Wife Love's the Balboa Flip Flop

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


Knee problems solved

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


Great Flip

Lightweight, well-made, and comfortable with excellent support. Great casual flip for the lake or beach. Good for travel. I have a wider forefoot and appreciate that the design allows for plenty of room for the ball-of-foot and toes. I've also always received excellent customer service from SOLE. Definitely recommend and would purchase again.


Wonderful

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


The only flip flops I purchase!

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


IN LOVE!

I love my SOLE Catalina flips! I got my first pair 6 years ago and LOVED them! I wore them out just this year - they lasted sooo long - so this year I ordered a new pair and love them just as much! In fact, I really appreciate the footbed - it's different, but they stay on my feet much better! SOLE flips do take a week or so to wear in, but once you do, they are the BEST flips ever!! I love mine and was worried at first that they were too small, but after about a week they fit like a glove. I buy SOLE because of the metatarsal support on the footbed - I had surgery on one foot and have had trouble with my toes falling asleep when I wear shoes. As long as a I have metatarsal support, my toes don't fall asleep - and of all the flips I've tried, SOLE are my favorite. THANKS!!!


Super Comfortable and Durable

So far I am very pleased with the Balboa. I wear the pretty much daily these days and have found them very comfortable. The break in period was quick. The outsole is holding up surprisingly well considering how soft it is. The supportive footbed fits the foot well and prevents that "flip flop" sound when walking. I have been wearing SOLE flip flops for many years and the Balboa is a very nice cost sensitive version of their footwear.


Most Comfortable Flip Flops EVER

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


Almost perfect fit out of the box

I discovered SOLE footbeds a few years ago. I injured myself just before a hiking trip in American SouthWest and needed some extra foot support so that I could keep to the trip's aggressive hiking schedule. Shoe guy at REI recommended SOLE thick corkbeds and I have been a fan ever since. The District Recork Tour looked interesting and they were on sale. I am upgrading my look after losing a lot of weight and these appeared stylish and I know the comfort of the SOLE footbeds, so I purchased. Out of the box, it took a few minutes for the beds to adjust to my feet, but then they were perfect. Like my hiking companions on that trip, they provide comfort, support, and fun. I bought the black leather, but plan on ordering the brown leather as well. Now I have only been wearing these for a few hours around the house, but I like them almost as much as my Cushe slip ons that I normally wear. They just feel like a part of me. Great shoe!


Rugged foot wear forThe beach

Beach sandals not the floppy foam ones! SOLE Beach Flip flops are super comfortable and stable on the sand and uneven ground once broken in the foot bed is not slippery in the water and walking distance is easy as they form your foot . I wear them around the yard there light and make your feet feel good

Lonny B Smith


Great Support for Severe Feet

I have one foot that has severe over-pronation, post surgery these SOLE Mateo slides provide excellent support and comfort. Both feet, appreciate the support and cushion. I was unsure on the slide concept vs a flip, but after having them for a while I have a difficult time remembering what my apprehension was all about.


feet reprieve

This my forth set of SOLE insoles and the first time with the Work style. I have foot problems and was half time on a cane. These insoles have let me set that aside and do most of a day on my feet. The fit is perfect and they seem to holding up quite well through several months now of wear. Next I will try a light pair for dress shoes and see if dancing is again a possibility.

Cara Barter


Great support for chronic pain

I live with chronic joint pain throughout my body. Theses are the best flip flops I have ever had. I've had other orthopedic cork sandals before but nothing compares to Sole for foot support and durability. I bought my first pair of SOLE on recommendation from my physio therapist. They lasted me years. I'm sure this second pair will last just as long. I highly recommend these for anyone dealing with chronic pain. Good alignment starts in your feet.


Nothing but...

SOLE has always been my go to foot insoles, for health and comfort.

Thomas Burchell


Comfortable and stable footwear

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


Excellent Quality

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


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.

Excellent

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


Awesome inserts

These have replaced custom-made inserts and they work even better. These are the only inserts that work for me. I have had foot issues for years (prior to wearing these inserts) and have been to podiatrists. This is a lot less expensive than doing all that. These inserts are the obvious choice.


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

The Best. Period.

I live in Flips. Have for years and years. Before I found SOLE Flips, I could get about a year out of a "quality" pair from a long list of manufacturers. they might feel comfortable for the first month or 2 but then they break down and eventually look so terrible that my wife throws them away. Ones that stand up to daily wear, well they feel like I'm wearing plywood on my feet. I can't walk for hours in them like I can in my SOLE Flips. My wife and I travel a lot and we always go for long walks wherever we are. unless we are trail hiking, we go out in our SOLE flips. Miles and miles of walking and we get home, comfortable and with zero foot fatigue! The quality of the SOLE flips are fantastic. I am rough on most things and my flips are not excluded. I routinely have to wash my outside flips because, well, I have gone places in them that aren't exactly clean! They wash up easily and look new again. these flips can take the day in day out abuse that my life hands them, no problem. In fact the only reason I have had to buy new ones is not from wear or discomfort issues, they simply have become stained from wear and I want a new pair so they look respectable. I have 2 pairs of SOLE sport flips for daily wear, one for inside and one for outside. I have now owned 5 pairs and my wife has 2. I am 6'5" tall and weigh 235 pounds and my flips last me at least 2-3 years. GREAT value when you consider how much I wear them. My wife still owns (and wears daily) her original pair she bought 5 years ago! (she weighs a lot less than me!) If you are considering buying your first pair and are concerned about price, DON'T BE! These flips will outlast anything you have ever owned before and provide miles of comfort for years. As the old saying goes "the sweetness of low price is long forgotten while the bitterness of low quality lives on and on" Thanks SOLE for believing in high quality standards in your design and materials and construction. Keep up the great work! I'm a customer for life!

Best sandals in the world

Best sandals you can find. Supports the foot perfectly. Hubby had one pair that gave out after 10 years. Now we bought two pairs for him. One pair for outside and one pair as indoor slippers. He can't live without his SOLE. I bought a pair as well and love them. I wear size 10 in shoes and size 11 in my SOLE fits perfectly. Hubby wears size 13 in shoes and his size 13 Soles fits well. Yes, we have big feet... The cork SOLE gives the cushion we need when walking on hard floors and roads. Super comfortable sandals. We walked all over Portugal for one month in our SOLEs.


Men’s repel

I have been wearing this shoe for about three months and love them. Very comfortable, great supportive foot bed. Easy to put on and the fit is true. Have purchased two pair!


BEST FLIPS EVER!!!!!!

I love my Costa flips! They're the most comfortable sandals I've ever worn. The support is amazing. As someone who is constantly on my feet running around these have helped my knees and back get back to normal where I don't need to see the Chiro as much. I had a figure skating injury when I was 15 to my lower back so I'm always in pain. The fit is great, the way it hugs my foot Is just right and love the mulberry color as it's my fave. I bought one pair and had to go back for 3 more!


Catalina Sport Flips

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


Softec Ultras are the BEST!

I have used Softec Ultras for years. The first thing I do with new running shoes is replace the insoles with the Ultras. The Ultras themselves have lasted for years and they help add miles to my running shoes. I have a narrow foot with a high arch and the Ultras changed my running life for the better by providing stability, support, comfort and preventing "hotspots". Love the simple heat and wear molding for fit; subtle, but makes a difference! Thank you SOLE people - keep up the good work! :-)


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.

Love!

I bought these sandals after researching summer footwear for planter fasciitis. I was hesitant and thought I'd be spending my summer in my running shoes and custom orthodics, but these sandals are AMAZING! No foot pain at all. I haven't wore them outside yet, not until I can get another pair so I can have one for inside and one for outside. They fit true to size!


Great product

Well a few weeks in, and I can't be happier with the purchase of these flip flops. I had some minor knee issues, and since I have been wearing these I have not felt that pain in my knee when I walk. So far I could not be happier with the SOLE brand, and plan to soon try some insoles. The fit is good, I am usually a size 8.5 went down to an 8 for these, the fit is perfect for the foot.


My Search is Over!

Finally. A slim designed flip flop, or 'slippa', that is very comfortable, offers support and hugs the foot. I've been wearing flip flops for decades and have become increasingly disappointed with the direction that flip flops were heading. In a quest to make flip flops more comfortable, manufacturers were pumping out flip flops that were either thick cheap foam, or had air soles, that ended up looking like a flip flop/hiking boot hybrid. They end up looking ridiculous and rarely sat square on the foot. I've always preferred a slimmer flip flop and these fit the bill perfectly. They are firm and thin, but with the arch support and contoured foot bed, they are very comfortable. They have become my new go-to flip flops!


We love these

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


great footwear.

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

Pillow talk

I bought my Mateo Sport Slides four years ago. They are definitely the most comfortable slide I have ever worn. I like the way the mold to my foot and yet still enough cushion to make my feet feel like they are on pillows. I am now buying myself a new pair ~George Shimer,


Good enough to make me switch!

For the last few months, I've been wearing the SOLE Active and the SOLE Performance. The Active is a lower profile that fit nicely in my ultimate cleats and my cycling shoes- something my Superfeet insoles never did well. They provide arch support without taking up a lot of volume. The Performance insoles have 1.6 mm of cushioning and a recycled cork base. These were awesome in a pair of shoes I'd written off as not fitting my foot but the insoles changed my mind. If you've worn Superfeet before you know there comes a time when the heel cup glue fails and the tiny piece of cork comes out and you glue them and glue them and tape them and finally give up. SOLE insoles are one integrated piece so there is no glue to fail or pieces to disconnect. Superfeet can get pretty rank while SOLE insoles are made with the Polygiene odor control technology. So, you're probably like, it's an insole, whatever. You are so wrong and you are not living your best life. I seriously, truly, have a pair of insoles in every single athletic shoe I own. Cross country ski boots, skate ski boots, AT boots, every pair of Altras and Hokas (5x pairs), my around-town boots, hiking boots, my OTF sneakers. Yeah, that's right, I own that much footwear. Don't ask how many pairs of Chacos I have!


Saved my feet

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


SOLE Flip Flops

I have bunions and arthritis in my feet for years and find that while these cost more than others these offer great support and comfort. They initially are a little snug but they conform to your foot with wearing. I have five pairs including cork ones. I have worn these for nearly 10 years and now them wear SOLE flip flops 365 days a year.


Best arch support post injury

I had plantar fasciitis for 8 months. I did all the physio and rehab to help it go away. As it started to heal, I found barefoot walking uncomfortable I needed something with an arch support. My podiatrist sold me a pair of Catalina flips and I loved them so much, I purchased a second pair online. (And a third for my partner.) Amazingly comfortable flip. Soft material used between the toes and the sole conforms to my foot well. Arch support is fantastic. I have two pairs-one that I wear inside my house all the time and the other is for outside. I would buy another pair for sure!


Best yet

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


Excellent Product

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


Excellent Product

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


Best Flip Flop

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


For pain relief and proper biomechanical alignment.

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


Another great flip!

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


Top Notch

This SOLE product is my favourite, I spend a lot of time in boots and the thicker insert really helps support my arches and gives me additional mobility. These also will fit into tennis shoes, as long as they are not too tight fitting. The price is reasonable and I don't have to replace them too often. Would I buy them again? YES! I actually bought a pair for my father who has knee pain and these have helped greatly in stabilizing his foot and thus reducing knee pain. SOLE has a great products. Rich Hamm


Great product

Great arch support. They mold to my feet. A shoe salesperson measured my feet and told me I had size 12 foot and size 13 arch so I ordered 13 SOLE and they are great. I trimmed a little off the toe end so they would fit in my shoes. I have a spur on one heel. The cushioning helps with that. I have tried some insoles that have more cushion but I don't use them because they make me feel like I am going to tip over sideways.


Super comfortable and durable

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


Great product

I am very happy with this product. Able to walk without heel pain. Went to Disney world and had no foot pain.


I am impressed by these insoles.

I have purchased a pair of sandals from SOLE three years ago, used them every summer since and fell in love with them. I saw an ad through one of my social media feeds that SOLE had these medium work insoles on sale. I jumped at the chance to try these at a discount. I use these insoles in my tactical work boots. My job as a Sheriff has me walking, standing, all day, almost every day. Being a larger guy I have always had problems with my knees and my plantar fasciitis. These insoles compared to my prescribed ones, I truly prefer these ones. They run the full length of the boot so there's no rubbing in the middle of the foot like I get with the prescribed ones. It has been almost four months, and no complaints whatsoever. These so far have been the best non prescription insoles I have ever purchased. Highly recommend that you at least try these.


"Form" over "foam"

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


Very Nice

I have tried 4 of your SOLE insoles for my foot problems. The work I tried as I am on my feet for 8 hours a day at work and my feet were getting very tired. Not sure it is the best one of your insoles but it has helped. Still have issues with numbness on one foot but nothing seems to help that. I have also tried the Performance Thick, Active Thin and Active Medium with Met Pad. All feel great but in every shoe I place them they make the shoe squeak very audibly. When I replace with the shoes original insole the noise stops. Sometimes it is one foot, sometimes both and it alternates between feet. Apart from the noise am very pleased with my purchases.


Incredibly comfortable shoes!

I have a long narrow foot, and it doesn't make sense to spend $300-$500 for every pair of work and dress shoes so that they fit my 11.5 AA foot. I used to just wear two pairs of socks (not always comfortable during a Gulf Coast summer, but SOLE has been a godsend! The inserts help my normal width shoes fit, but the District by ReCORK shoes I bought fit tightly, comfortably, and look fantastic. I feel fashionable and young, and I bound around my campus at work or through airports without wincing or losing my shoes. And they look great for casual or dress-up occasions.


comfort

For years with foot problems the discovery of SOLE foot supports has changed my life markedly. I can now go on long walks without paying the price. Highly recommended by me!


My favourite insoles

Good morning! I have been having trouble with my feet for many years. I am always looking for arch support, and never really getting what I was looking for. I have a size 12 foot, and always have to wear men's shoes. I had gone to see a different doctor, and he suggested the cork insoles. He said they would form to my feet. So I ordered them, and I am able to walk much better. They are softer than the insoles I was using. I have been wearing them now for about a year. They are comfortable. They fit nicely. I will continue to buy them for years to come!

Best flip/orthodic/sexy shoe ever

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


Fantastic Soles

I am a bit old and overweight with flat feet and worn out knees, but I love to hike! Where I live there are many trails in the mountains and rough Andalusian country side. There's a lot of up-and-down, steep paths. I recently switched over to Altea Lone Pine 4.0 trail shoes and paired them with SOLE Wide Thick foot beds. My first hike was a tough route of 17 miles with 3,700 accumulated elevation ascent and descent. I packed along my well-used Brooks Cascadia with traditional fit SOLE Thick footbeds just in case. But no problems and many hikes later I'm so pleased I have already bought a second pair of the SOLE/Altra combination! My feet and my knees are responding well, both for long hikes and on steep descents. I fully recommend SOLE footbeds!


Supreme comfort and support

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


Love these!

I suffered from plantar fasciitis forbsome time before discovering SOLE and the footbeds, and have happily had zero issues since (4 years!). These flip flops are fantastic indoors and out, are durable and waterproof and supremely comfortable. I have a wider foot and they provide comfort and stability for me. Thank you!


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!

Laguna Flips

First pair of flips ever. I am so glad I bought them . The cork under my feet feels fantastic. Also the way they are formed, it feels like a foot massage while I walk around. These are a fantastic flip and I would recommend them to anyone who is serious about taking care of their feet.


Thankful

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


Awsome!!!g

Excellent product! I have extremely flat feet and have been wearing orthotics my whole life. This is a sturdy, solid sport slide. Extremely comfortable and keeps my foot in place. I wish I would of gotten them years ago!


Less fatigue and foot pain

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


Outstanding inserts for your boots.

I work in home renovations and on my feet all day. By the end of the day my feet and knees would be aching. Using the SOLE inserts in my boots make them incredibly comfortable. They last a long time, fit great making my boots feel like a running shoe on my foot. I've tried other insoles but these are by far the best ones in my opinion. I've been wearing these now for about a year and half and will not go back to any other brand. I do not have sore feet or knees any longer. Highly recommend SOLE!


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.

The best casual and post work out foot wear!

My husband and I have been using this product for about 10 years. I initially purchased a pair as a post run foot wear. I loved them so much that I bought three more in different colors. I bought this most recent pair as a stocking stuffer for my husband. He had 2 colors, but not black. They were his favorite christmas gift! My husband and I wear our SOLE flips all the time. I even wear them with casual dresses.


Great product for cycling shoes.

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


Now I can wear shoes I like!

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

Great product!

These insoles have really helped support my foot in a way that I no longer have pain and reduced how often I need to attend physio. My physiotherapist recommended them to me and I have been happy with them since day 1!


A sole with soul

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


Love My Soles

I love my SOLE active and active medium soles. I have problems with my achilles tendon and these have given me much needed support for my foot rolling alignment issues. I use the SOLE medium for my bulky sneakers and the SOLE thins for my narrower ones. No regrets and you should give them a try...


Walking Again Pain Free

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


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.


SO GOOD!

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


Holds up

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


Loved these

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


Really enjoy the footbed

I have for years used the custom foot bed's from one of our local running stores, I wanted to try to save a bit of money so I thought I would give these a shot. I have been very pleased with their performance, I heated them in the oven (like the directions say) placed them in my running shoes and formed them to my foot and started using them. They give me great support and are very comfortable on my feet. I was concerned for blisters and for my feet falling asleep but neither have happened. I am now 4 months into using them and I consider them to be my new go to. Highly Recommend... I will be purchasing more in the future as my other's wear out and as I watch for 'Specials' throughout the year.

IN LOVE

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

Richard Kerschtien


Awesome Sandals

I am currently wearing my third pair of Navigate sandals. I began wearing them after experiencing plantar fasciitis. They are tough and well made! Once formed to my foot they are very comfortable and I can walk all day without any foot issues. These sandals rock!


Great Sandals!!Help Me Alot

These really are comfortable and fit perfectly. Helps me a great deal with a very high arched foot. Great job! I have been wearing these for over 1 year. Very durable!

Lantry Vaughan


Perfect alternative to thicker soles

These work great for giving slightly more foot room in some of my favorite shoes and boots.


Total Score!!!!

So I was shopping the SOLE site as there was a sale going on and I had already had an awesome experience with some sandals I bought a couple of years ago (which I still wear) and I ordered 2 pairs of shoes. I decided to take a look at the other items they had on sale and noticed that these boots were deeply discounted and figured for what they were selling for I couldn't say no - they were around the same price as a pair of insoles - how could I miss? When the boots arrived it was still snowy and mucky where I live and I decided to give them a test drive.... they were super light, water tight and no slipp'n and slidd'n to be had. As with all SOLE foot beds it took some time to get used to them but I gotta say I'm really enjoying my purchase - I actually feel like I stole'm for the price I paid. The only thing I'm on the fence with is that the boots are slightly bulkier then what I had envisioned - but I'm a firm believer in function over fashion anyway... so it's a win for me.

This a beautiful shoe. Comfortable and connects your feet to the ground!

I love the feel of this shoe and how comfortable it is. The sole connects to the ground with a firm but soft feeling. And it fits my wide foot well


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.


Great shoes

They are well made, look great and are very comfortable. It can definitely be worn with no socks. I am tempted to get them in black too, only regret that despite having measured my foot and always being a size 7.5, I should have ordered them in a size 7.


Received some compliments

I bought the Prodigy colour which were somewhat lighter coloured than they looked on the screen. They are a comfortable pair of shoes that drew some compliments at work. The size chart didn't work for me. My foot size was approx 27.8 so I bought the size 10 since they were for a foot of 28 cm in length. They were too small and I returned them for a 10.5. These were still a touch on the snug size but since they are leather I'm hoping they will stretch out over time. Even snug they are still comfortable. What little tread that the sole has is already smoothing out which may be an issue if the floor happens to be wet from people coming in with snow on their boots.

The BEST!

I have bought numerous pairs of SOLE sandals. They are absolutely the best on the market! Before total, bilateral knee replacement, I had four pair that I wore religiously. Nothing helped my knees as much as they did. Now, why change? Incredible support! For anyone with leg, knee, or foot problems, buy a couple of pair. Only wish I would get a commission for the number of people I have recommended that have bought these!


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.

Great Everyday Shoe

I have been a big fan of SOLE flips for years and was excited to try out the RECORK product. I purchased the black loafer in mens 13. Generally, shoes in size 13 look like water skis and some more so than others. These shoes were the complete opposite. My feet looked much smaller and I was quite surprised that they were a terrific fit and provided a significant amount of wiggle room in the toes. The arch support is similar to the flips and is beginning to form to the specifics of my foot arch. This has been my experience with all the SOLE products. They continue to provide excellent arch support during this break-in process. As for the overall look of the shoe beyond making my foot seem a reasonable size, they are simple and handsome with echos, for those of a certain vintage, of the 70's Earth Shoes! They have become my go-to shoe for everyday and can easily work in a dressier situation. The leather is soft and supple and it is comfortable. One area for improvement would be to modify the sole to provide a bit better traction in wet and other slick situations.


Best thing happening to my feet!!!!

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


So far so good

I am active runner who has been dealing with plantar fasciitis in the last year, and I was searching for a good footbed that would support my foot. Its been 2 months now of regular use and the fit seems great. I use the insoles in my running shoes and in my regular shoes with no problem. Of course, these won't fully cure your plantar fasciitis by themselves! I am doing daily stretches and exercises, but they are a great tool to have in your toolbox. ;) In these last 2 months I also tried the medium version but found out they dont fit in most of my shoes. These ones are thinner but still very confortable.


Morton's Neuroma & Plantar Fasciiitis Relief

Immediate relief for my Morton's Neuroma on my right foot. Excellent support for the plantar fasciitis on my left foot. I couldn't thank enough. Looking forward to try out other models :-)

Pain relief

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


and I used to hate Flip Flops...

I've never worn flip flops because the toe post irritates and hurts so I always searched for sandals. I have high arches and PF, so I always search for supportive sandals, and hopefully find some that are still cute. I use SOLE footbeds for my causal shoes, and thought...what the heck? There was a good sale, the SOLE insoles have been great in the past, so why not try the Del Mar Flips and I can return them if they hurt too much right? They arrived quickly, I put them on and wore them for an hour or so. The toe post wasn't irritating and the foot bed felt comfortable and supportive from the beginning, I've worn them more, including all day shopping excursions and haven't had any issues. As the footbed continues to mold to my foot shape, they will probably become one of the most comfortable shoes I'll own. I won't trust other flip flops, but I'm glad I tried these. Supportive, cushion, and all day comfort for me.


perfection

I wanted a flip to wear as I hate to go barefoot and wanted something cool and comfortable for the summer. The Beach Flip was perfect as it added support to my foot arch and is comfortable too! I have used several of the SOLE shoe inserts which have helped resolve some of my foot arch problems. Thus, I was confident that SOLE was the product that I could trust for a flip that would be a benefit to my feet and meet my want/need for a nice flip.


Great service!!!!

So, I was pretty excited to get these new flips after wearing out a pair that lasted me almost five years. Unfortunately for me, I have a bone on my foot that didn't take kindly to the rubber strap on these. (My previous flips were a leather/fabric strap.) Sad, because the cork footbeds were incredibly comfortable! Well, after getting in touch with the customer service people I am happy to say I've ordered something that will likely be better for me, and the service I got from Tim was exceptional! I would hands down, heartily recommend buying from this company! My new flips are on their way and I anticipate major summer vibes and good times are coming my way too! Thanks again SOLE for exceptional customer service and pursuing sustainable manufacturing.


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!


THE best flip flops

I have issues with my feet due to a genetic disease so it's difficult to find a pair of flips that not only fit my feet but also support them. Living in the desert and being a boater my SOLEs are worn daily and for all day long. I first started wearing them years ago when had flat foot issues and have worn them since. I've tried many other expensive brands but keep coming back to SOLE!

Love!!!!

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


So Comfortable!!

These are super comfortable. I especially love how you can adjust the straps to get a custom fit. I had surgery on my toe and still had a little swelling on the top of my foot. With the adjustable straps I'm able to wear these sandals without any issues. These are also great support for my flat feet. I am on my feet a lot so I need shoes with tons of support. Thanks SOLE for taking care of all the sore feet in the world!!!


love

I just purchased my second pair of woman's Catalina Sports Flips. They are comfortable with great heel support. They fit my foot well and are perfect for me. I can walk well and for lengthy periods of time. I have these in black and turquoise and the color holds up well. I suffer from bad arthritis in my spine and have to be particular about what I wear on my feet and these enable me to be on my feet much longer than any other shoes I own.

Love Love my SOLE Sandals

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


My favorite flip flops!

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

Shawn Stanyar


Life Saver

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


Little met pad, big upgrade

At this point I have many many pairs of SOLE flips flops and love the support, especially because of the met pad. I have a few pairs of insoles and they are all awesome but theres just something extra special about that little met pad!! I have some laxity issues and I truly feel like that met pad keeps my foot extra open but stable. My toes never feel bunched up or squished.

Only flip flops I'll wear!

I have skinny, long feet with high arches and finding a comfortable flip flop that disn't hurt my feet was impossible, until SOLE started making flip flops. I have been using the insole inserts for years, but I had been unable to enjoy wearing flip flops. I love my SOLE Casual Flips so much I bought a pair for everyone in my family. They all love them, from my flat footed stepfather to my mom with high arches, to my wide footed husband. My only wish is that they would make them in childrens sizes. I have been buying them for a while and wear them all summer and most of the spring and fall. With my constant use most of them have lasted at least two years.

My SOLE Flips!

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


Healthy Solution

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


Best investment

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


No more pain!!!

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


The Best!

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


I could walk again

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


Adjustable slip on

SOLE was recommended by my foot doctor and they are great for my plantar fasciitis. The new adjustable slide is fantastic, as I can now adjust it for bare feet, or if I need to wear socks. I would highly recommend this product.


Great Flip Flops

I have always worn the Sport flip flops and can't be without them but thought I'd give these a try. The foot bed is a little different but they still offer great support. The mesh strap dresses them up a little bit and they are light as a feather. You really can't go wrong!


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!


Great Flip-Flop!

When I first received these, they were very, very tight. I could barely get my foot into them and the strap was super tight on the top of my foot. After wearing them for a few days, they fit perfectly now and I love them! Super comfortable with great arch support for my plantar fasciitis.

Jacob


Plantar fasciitis

I had a flare up of plantar fasciitis on my right foot that wouldn't go away regardless of how much I stretched. I tried countless insoles from other brands (some had soft gels and did not provide enough rigid support, others with carbon inserts were too rigid and didn't provide flexibility for my active livestyle) until trying these Sport Medium insoles. After heat molding them in the oven and placing it in my running shoes, I've been able to keep flare ups away. I ended up buying a set for my casual shoes and oxfords I use at work. They've elevated the level of comfort across the board on all my shoes. I'm able to walk and hike for several miles again. I've had them for over a year now, and it's made me curious as to what their lifespan is.


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.


Great Product

Great product that helps my son with proper foot posture.

I have a BUNCH of Sole and Love Them All

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

Lovin' my Lagunas

I've tried several styles of SOLE flips including the Beach, Casual and Sport. The Laguna's are by far my fave!!!! They are super comfy, with all the same arch support as the other great SOLE products. The fabric is soft with elastic like stretch so they fit well. The cork is durable. It feels softer than the other styles I've tried, almost springy. It moves with my foot. These are for sure my new go to SOLE flips!

Womens Sport Flips

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


Excellent

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

Victoria


excellent products

Hi all. Over the last 2 years I have purchased the men's Cork Flips. I have a size 12 ladies foot so very hard to find a sassy functional flip flop. My prayers answered. I will continue to purchase these through out my years. I had one pair where the cork bed split. I emailed SOLE and they sent me a replacement pair no questions asked. That is customer service. I work in Healthcare and am very aware that you have to look after your feet. I tell everyone I know about this company. Cheers to an excellent product.


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!

Lorraine MacDonald


Amazing

I was referred to your product by my pedorthic clinic (Katie Whalen) where I was fitted with insoles for my plantar fasciitis. I have now ordered 3 pair of these flips and I love them !!!! I have a narrow foot but they wrap and hold my feet in place very comfortably. I wear a pair around the house as a slipper for the summer ( would you ever consider making a slipper)? I would definitely buy them!


The Absolute Best

These flip flops are just awesome for someone with foot problems (and to help prevent problems in people who don't already have foot problems). The arch support and heel fit the contours of the foot perfectly; and the knit strap is very comfortable on the top of the foot. I've tried other flip flops that were supposedly made to fit the foot, but these are by far the absolute best and most comfortable.


Fitting Wide Toe Boxes

Needing a wide toe-box shoe for hiking 1000 km on the Camino Santiago in Spain, I couldn't afford custom orthotics, so I searched for the best alternative insole out there. I settled on the heat-moldable SOLE Active Wide Thick and was so wonderfully satisfied that I bought a 2nd pair for training for the long walk. Foot fatigue went away and the extra cushioning helped the trail runners. I had plunge through gravel paths and carry me over long stretches of hot, hard asphalt. My knees were happy again. If you have any of the Altra brand or other wide toe-box shoes, please consider SOLE Active Wide for your next adventure, or even for your workplace. I tried so many other brands without success. Mold these to your own feet. You won't regret it. I don't.

Fred Rossomando


Excellent!

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


Extreme Comfort

I ordered the Lifestyle Medium to put into my casual sneakers that lack comfort and support. The SOLE inserts fit perfectly into my sneakers and allowed me to walk around all day without having the usual knee and foot pain I normally would have.

Amanda


Love them!

I've had foot surgery on both my feet and these are the only flip flops I can wear. I wear them year round :-)


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.


Great

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

Terry Heinrich


Nice Arch Fit

I recently purchased the Men's Sport Flips. I like the arch support the sandal gives. The foot bed is comfortable and soft but firm where it needs to be. The length of the shoe fits perfectly. I find it is a tight fit around the strap area. I'm thinking the strap will stretch a little to make this more comfortable and less tight fitting. Otherwise, I have no complaints with my purchase.....Thank you in advance...Terry H.

Rick Smith


Great Sandals

This my third pair of Sole cork flips and they are pretty much my go to footwear for the summer. Previously i had purchased them at MEC, but this time went to the source. Delivery was fast and the transaction was painless. I love these sandals because of the fit. I have size 12 feet, and find that a lot of flip flop type sandals just don't stay on my feet. These ones always do, and the foot bed is incredibly comfortable, molding to your foot shape and providing support. 10/10 Would purchase again.


A New Level of Comfort

These were recommended to me by a Podiatrist, and in fact I bought my first pair from him. Dr. Costanza said if these don't work, you're going to need orthotic inserts. Working at the time in health care managing a medical laboratory often alone, I spent many hours on my feet running across concrete floors with little to no support. I bought shoes and or boots with thick padded layers between my feet for those surfaces but it wasn't until I tried SOLE that I noticed a significant difference. Over the years I have been using SOLE Active Thick inserts, I've noticed that for me, a overweight middle age man, changing the inserts out about every 2 months give me the highest level of comfort. I break mine in the natural way, allowing my feet to mold into the inserts over time. I've tried a lot of different inserts and I can tell you that none, 0, zero, and I mean nobody else even comes close to the level of comfort in SOLE. Recommended by professionals and by me a retired medical professional, there is no better support for your foot than SOLE.


Can't take them off!

These Del Mar Sport flips are super comfy. I have been wearing SOLE flip flops for 4 years now and they are my "go to" footwear. I use them as slippers inside the house and wear them most days outside. I have walked around sightseeing all day in them and had no issues with sore feet or blisters. This is my 7th pair of SOLES and I will continue to buy them as my foot problems have disappeared since I began wearing them. Thanks for saving my feet SOLE!


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

Donna Beattie


Long time fan

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


SOLE insole

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


Orthotics

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


Fabulous customer support!

LOVE these shoes! I'd had some foot trouble in the past and was looking for some orthotic shoes. I couldn't find any that were half decent looking but then I found these. Stylish, supportive and durable! Also I'd like to give a shout out for the customer service (Sasha) on this site. It was amazing. They stand behind their product and want their customers to be satisfied. I did have some issues with a different style sandal but the issue was rectified to my complete satisfaction. Thank you!


Great foot beds / insoles

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


Super comfortable

Just received my new Costa flips. The strap is super comfortable and my foot issue has resolved itself after only 2 days of wear. These are my 6th pair of Sole flip flops and I won't live without them. I use them as slippers inside the house and outside whenever there is no snow on the ground. Highly recommend...and have to many friends.

These sandals are money!

Loving my new flips. The knit strap looks and feels great, and I feel awesome knowing that I am standing on recycled wine corks. On top of that, it's really nice to have a sandal that has some support and isn't flat under foot too. I can already feel them helping my plantar fasciitis. Would highly recommend.


Highly Recommend

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


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!


Saved my feet

I've been using various Sole footbeds for several years and can say that I've found nothing better. I have high arches and work construction, sometimes on my feet for most of a 12 hour, or longer, shift and have developed plantar fasciitis as a result. I've tried other brands with varying results but, Sole footbeds are the ones that have made a huge difference, so much so that my feet rarely bother me anymore. The thing I like about them is that they are heat moldable. Because my arches are so high and longer than normal, I actually gently heat my new Soles with a heat gun and mold more arch into them than they come with. Doing so I can slightly over-mold them and they conform to the exact shape of my foot after wearing them for a few days. Without doing that It would mean costly custom orthotics. My youngest son was cursed with the same feet as mine and we both use Sole. Thanks for the excellent product.

James LaCroix


Lasted FOREVER! Awesome value!

Purchased through my foot doctor because of plantar fasciitis, I questioned spending so much for "flip flops." After wearing them for a few days, I knew they would help my feet. But after EIGHT YEARS of almost daily wear, my Sole cork slides finally suffered a broken thong, clearly illustrating the value of Sole footwear! Totally getting way more than your money's worth!

Sandra


Sandals

I've been wearing these for a few days now and absolutely LOVE them. They're so comfortable, the midsole molds to your foot. I have the black pair and I'm thinking I need some more in different colors!!! Wonderful that the footbed is made from 100% recycled cork. Great product.

Rachel


LOVE MY NEW RECYCLED CORK FLIPS!

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


Awesome footbeds

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


Just like my 400 dollar orthotics

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

judy reber


best ever!

I wear these sandals year round. I am a vendor at the Minnesota State Fair and no other shoe gives me 12 hour a day, 12 day straight comfort like these...they are absolutely amazing! I sell skin care for the feet and my heels can take a beating in regular sandals...these do not dry your feet out and along with my skin cream my feet always look great! Cannot say enough about them...oh and did I mention my feet never hurt after a long day on concrete...you know how trade shows can be. My foot Doc friend suggested these to me and I've never gone back. Once I needed some sandals for Hawaii and needed them on the spot...went to Nordstroms and purchased the $80. a pair of the Hawaiian brand they were selling. They were black on black. Not only do they not give the support they suggested they did but the black sole would stain my heels...really bad! And to have spent $80 for them? Thank you Sole for making an incredible product. I take pride in my products and have been selling them for over 25 years so I really appreciate great quality and a product that says what it does and does it! Take good care, Judy Reber Owner Merino Skin Care USA & The Crack Blaster!


Life Changing

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

Kathleen


Very happy with this purchase!

Received these sandals this afternoon...amazing speedy delivery service! I had tried the flip-flop but find that I prefer the freedom of walking with sandals that have straps which then make my stride more comfortable and natural. The flip-flop was a little big for me in the size 6, however size 6 in the Navigate fit perfectly. I opened the box right away and eagerly put these Navigate sandals on and am very, very pleased! They feel great! Looking forward to long term use and the moulding of the foot-bed that will take place. Thank you Sole for great customer service!

Carmen Sanders


Foot pain

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

Angela


Painless!

I bought a pair of the SOLE Sport Slides after foot surgery to use as an indoor shoe following a suggestion from my podiatrist. I loved them! After another bunion surgery, I developed a neuroma. In my SOLE shoes, I didn't have the burning. In my runners with custom orthotics, I did. I went to find another pair of SOLE shoes for outdoor use. I came across these sandals and they have not disappointed me! I am a teacher so am on my feet a lot. I have worn these all day at work and have not had any episodes! I am so happy with these shoes.

HAPPY FEET - Best Sandals for Foot/Back

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

I have MULTIPLE Pairs!

I wanted to review after I had at least a year of wear under my belt. I was frustrated with the plethora of cheap and pseudo-orthotic plastic-rubber products on the market. I have Psoriatic Arthritis that has impacted my feet. I am in my mid 40's now and my conditions is well-controlled. After a recommendation from a friend, I tried SOLE Sport Flips 3 years ago. I was immediately turned on! The features that have resonated the most with me are the metatarsal footpad, deep heel cup, machine washability and durability. I now have 2 pairs of Sport Flips and 1 Pair of Sport Slides. There is 1 pair in my gym bag for the gym and Taekwondo. Perfect for the beach... ANYWHERE. The deep heel cup prevents the foot from sliding all over the place, as they would in the lesser-quality products. After a few weeks of getting the world all over them, I toss them into the washer and they come out just as though I had opened the box from the mail. I dare say they are more comfortable than the $400 custom orthotics I had prepared for me by a podiatrist. I travel for work and I ALWAYS have a pair of SOLES with me. My wife is a believer as well. My son refers to me as the flip flop wearing parent. I'll take that.


Sole for me

Years ago I bought Sole's Exhale shoes. I use 'em as slippers mostly, every day, year-round. I got 2 back-up pairs after the first. Still wearing the first. The top of the fold-down heel is a bit worn, but the footbed and structure are still 100%!! When I feel like it, I wear one of the newer pairs out and about, very versatile look. I have a prescription orthotic footbeds to protect my high arches from strain. When I cross over from my mouldable Sole Thin Casual footbed in my favorite shoes to the pair with the custom made bed, I recognize I'll never pay the price for a custum make again. My mouldable Sole footbeds fit better, are thinner and save me a ton of coin. After moulding in the oven and a day of wear, there isn't a spot that hasn't confirmed to my foot and it really feels like my shoe is just a perfect match and fit. Awesome products. Love your Sole!!


Fantastic quality - useable in all sorts of boots/shoes

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

Best arch support ever

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

Great shoes!

My podiatrist recommended these shoes (I have PTTD that I'm treating along with tailor's bunions) and they are wonderful. I am thankful for your customer service rep's recommendation to go up a size as well. I am an 8 and she suggested a size 9, and the fit is perfect. The sole is wide enough to accommodate my entire foot, while other brands' soles are too narrow for my flat feet. The straps are comfortable, and do not bother my bunions. Thank you so much for these! I feel like they were made for me.


Two Big Toes Up

My foot surgeon required that I wear orthotic inserts after I had a midfoot ligament repaired. It's a nasty surgery and long recovery, and he recommended this brand. These are the first inserts I've ever worn and they feel great. I think I need something a bit heavier for right now but I'm keeping these for bumming around the house for sure.

Great plantar faciitis relief:

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


Just the best

I have extremely flat feet and pronation, which causes foot pain, knee pain and especially lower back pain. I found SOLE about 5 years ago and have remained a loyal customer because I DON'T LIVE IN PAIN ANYMORE! I simply will not put shoes on my feet without a pair of these footbeds in them. Everything I own - dressy wingtips, casual boat shoes, sneakers, golf shoes, hiking boots, winter boots - all have a pair of SOLEs in them! I even bought their flip flops, which have been a summer time Godsend.

Loves the Lofts

I can't go anywhere without these boots! The most comfortable thing I own. At first they feel tight but after an hour or two they begin to break in and shape to your foot. Now I look at the other boots in my closet as bookends...

Charlene


Great FlipFlop

I love these sandals. I have four pairs in different colors. They are a little tight at first but because the sole molds to your foot, they soon fit just right. I can wear them all day comfortably and go for walks in them.


Softec Ultra

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


Awesome!

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


Foot pains

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

The best flip flop - ever.

I have tried so many flip flops. These are the only ones that are perfectly cushioned, but also have great arch and metatarsal support (taking the pressure off my big toe joint). They wrap around my slightly narrow foot like they were custom made. I wear a 9-9.5, and a 9 in these is perfect. I bought pairs for my mom and sister, too (neither have the big toe problems I do) and the smile and response was identical the second they put they them on... "Aaahh, that's nice." Please expand the SOLE footwear line - this footbed is incredible!!!

Sonia


RELIEF

I suffer from arthritis in my toes and was limping terribly. Orthotics helped for full shoes but was too warm for summer. Tied these on advice of shoe store. RELIEF was almost instantaneous. I can't emphasize too much how these have helped my feet. Thank you!

Lisa Charles


BEST-EVER!

I hurt my back about 4 1/2 years ago. Since then I have spent more $$ than I care to share trying to find comfortable shoes. Alas, I tried these at the referral of a friend. OMG, I LOVE THESE SHOES. I put these on the minute I arrive from the office and they feel great! Purchasing my second pair now. Thanks Sole!


long distance runner.

I'm a long distance runner and former marathon runner. I came across Sole about 7 years ago While surfing the internet. I pronate really bad always had to wear orthodtics they were about 500.00 i couldnt afford them anymore so i thought i would try Sole. Im so glad i did i got the signature - karnazes and i have been wearing them every since. Thank you so much because Sole really work.

ian


Best footwear & best service

I spend a lot of time in sandals & have tried almost every top brand available as I found walking long distances in them uncomfortable. I've suffered everything from bruised soles to shin splints over the years. Then I was bought a pair of Sole flips, the difference is amazing, shock absorption and foot support is second to none. The service is outstanding, replacing my initial pair with smaller without quibble. Never again will I be suffering from wearing those overpriced Brazilian and German equivalents which just do not compare in quality or service. My feet thank you.

Lena Odie


None Other

Since a knee injury several years back, I looked into orthotics but came across a store where they sold these sandals. Since than, I'm on my 4th or 5th pair of women's sandals and wear them day in day out! I wish they were more affordable, though are worth every penny!! They are truly the best, there is none other!

Healthy Shoes

I am a connoisseur of healthy shoes. I have owned just about every brand out there in every price point. The SOLE sandals are the best flip flop style shoe I have ever worn. Don't let the casual style fool you - these are more comfortable, more supportive, and better fitting than many strap-on styles. They fit snug to the foot, so you don't have to crunch your toes while you walk. The sole is so supportive in every spot, it's hard to go barefoot anymore. But if it seems too snug at first, or the sole seems too firm, do give it time because as you get used to the shoe you'll notice something amazing happen. The sole seems to mold to your own foot, and it gets more and more comfy as it does. I have the cork footbed model and the slides, and both are hard to take off. Lucky for me I live in a climate where sandals are the shoe of choice eight months of the year.


Excellent Product

These insoles have made it possible for me to walk long distances again, as I used to do before developing plantar fascitis about 18 months ago. I've been using them for 9 months with great success. Recommended by a podiatrist I saw. Nothing else was required. I bought 2 pairs -- one for dress shoes, and a thicker one for runners and trail shoes. Excellent product and very good value.

A great sole

My husband and I were traveling fromMaine to Florida and somewhere during the trip, I lost one of my insoles. As soon as we landed inFlorida we set out to find a new pair. At a running store, we came across Sole and they are the best over the counter insoles I have ever had. I have suffered with flat feet since a child and have had a few bouts of plantar fasciitis. These are an excellent product and I will be purchasing a pair for my golf shoes, and two more pairs for my other sneakers.

Heather


LOVE these socks

These have been my favorite socks since I was introduced to them just over 6 years ago. I LOVE them. They have no seals and a great snug fit around my foot arch. These are the only socks I run in!

Jodie


My savior

These shoes are the only shoes that keep me sane. I stand over 10 hours a day at work. I was suffering from posterior tibial tendonitis (from running) and they were the only shoe (along with the sole flip flop) that got me through. I have recently suffered another injury to my other foot (strains and inflammation) and they have been the only shoe I could wear since being out of the cam boot. Thank you SOLE!


Best Insoles Ever!

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

Geoff Liddy


freedom of wearing flops

Ever since I tried on a friends pair of SOLE Flips few years ago, I've thrown out every other flop I owned. From a car accident, I suffer the remnants of a right-ankle injury and your flops arch and support are wonderful. They literally gave me back the freedom of wearing flops comfortably. And I can assure you , as a South Florida outdoor enthusiast I live in flops J.


Best Product in the market

I test trialed this product a few years back, and without hesitation can say I would never contemplate switching brands. I am currently on my second deployment with my original pair. First was Iraq, now Afghanistan. The terrain here is absolutely brutal, unforgiving some may say. But SOLE rises to the occasion and simply delivers, always...guaranteed!

tanya


nice pair

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

Lou


Fabulous Shoe

I am a size 8.5, but the size 9 was too big for me. Sole just sent me a size 8 and it is a perfect fit. The comfort level cannot be described in words, and fabulous is an understatement. My podiatrist carries Sole insoles, so I ordered these online. He knows foot care, and Sole only sells the best. My love and thanks to Sole for happy feet.


Plantar fasciitis + Squash

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

Paula


GREAT boots

I bought these boots because my UGGS were killing my plantar fasciitis. I had already bought a pair of SOLE flip flops and loved them. These boots were great. I wore them hunting and my feet did not hurt much at all hiking through the woods. I would highly recommend them if you suffer from plantar fasciitis.


Marathoner

I have had these for over 2 years when my Sports Injury Surgeon recommended them, because I had a blister problem. I have run 3 half marathons and 2 full in these and have'n't had a single blister since. I run about 1500 miles a year and wear these on every run except two. The two I didn't wear them, I got blisters. I am at the point now where I will need another pair, but the best thing ever. Thanks Doc and thank you SOLE.

jules


I love em

I live in these flips.....I have wide feet, bunions and like a lot of support for my arches...I can walk the city in these flips and not complain about my feet at night!!


Best I've found yet

Pros: they actually fit into some of my casual shoes (boots, loafers and actually one pair of ballet flats! but I had to tear out the original foot bed from the ballet shoe). I have a small foot (size 5.5) and it's nearly impossible to find shoes that I can fit an insole into but these are the most thin & narrow that I have found. I have PF and I'm young so I don't want to wear tennis shoes every day so these have at least given me some other options. Cons: the little holes actually irritate my foot/skin after several hours. I don't think those are needed. They are 'hard' but then it seems all insoles/arch supports are.

F Filipchuk


Excellent quality

Purchased these flips as I love flip flops and this brand has the support I need. I have rheumatoid arthritis and effects my feet. These flips are so comfortable and support the whole foot bed! Excellent product! Can wear them pretty much all day, and foot not sore or tired! Thank you, hugely recommend this product.


Best work shoes I've ever owned

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

Scuba Diver Loves These!

These are great socks! The dual-layers really help reduce friction. I am a scuba diver and after my week long dive trips with 3 dives a day I would head home with major sores on my toes from friction in my dive boots. I decided to try these socks in my boots and presto....no sores! They fit snug and when you first look at them you might think "are these really going to fit my foot?" They do! I'm buying more!


Virginia from Princeton, Mass.

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


The BEST!!!

I have tried other insoles and none have been as comfortable as these! Don't waste your money on any other footbeds, these are the BEST on the market and their customer service is second to none!! Since wearing these my plantar foot pain and knee problems have gone away. I even bought a pair of soft house mocassins and put a pair of insoles in them to wear when working in the kitchen or doing housework and now I can work for hours with no pain on hard surfaces. I do not bake them in the oven because they feel better brand new and they will form to your foot after a week.


Great Product

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


Perfect for my Derby Skates

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


FINALLY - After 25 Years.

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


Comfort Guaranteed

As a member of the armed forces we are on our feet a lot, both in boots and trainers. I had an issue with the old issued boots and got Altberg peacekeeper aqua's instead. Trying on these new boots they were SO comfortable yet supportive, however when adding these insole's, if i was blindfolded i would have said i had another pair of boots that were so much more comfortable than the Atlbergs. I now even stand (being flat footed) with a better pronation. I cannot recommend these insoles enough. They are the Dogs...

Margaret Herbert


Comfortable dress boots

This is the first pair of "dress" boots I have been able to wear in years because of foot issues (I generally wear shock absorbing shoes with SOLE footbeds and SOLE slides.) They are low heeled, comfortable and easy to get on and off thanks to the zipper and gusset. There is enough room in the calf area for most to wear with skinny jeans. I wear a size 8 1/2 and ordered up as recommended. The foot is a bit large, but fits fine with heavy socks.


Very Comfortable

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

Will Pfeiffer


Great Flips!

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

Lloyd English


I could hear angels singing

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

Colavita Cycling Loves these socks!

We (the team) have been using the Lightweight Sport Socks for two years now. We love the fit, and the feel of these in our cycling shoes. They are thin and comfortable for those long rides, and intense workouts. Breath and evaporate sweat easily, very streachy fabric, and the left and right logo designation helps keep things "on the right foot". Try em, you'll be stoked! Keifer Colavita SW Cycling Team


pain cured

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


Softec Ultra

I have had a pair for two years. To this day there is no sign of ware. They are truly amazing. I am an athletic trainer and Sole is my go to foot bed for all my athletes.

eli soto


AHHHH

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


better than custom

I've had two pairs for well over a year and they are still like new. They are forgiving but still very sturdy. Tired of moving them from shoe to boot and so forth, so I'm buying another pair or 2. I had prescription insoles made through my foot doctor for a tough case of plantar fasciitis, and these are much more comfortable and effective in my opinion.

ibai Demirdache


Can't live without them!

I love my Sole Exhales. I wear them around the house with the back flipped down and they're so comfortable! I even use them to exercise - I have a cross country ski machine and my feet will slide out of the foot straps when I wear my runners on the machine. Can't do it bare foot because I have flat feet and it hurts too much. One day I got on with my Exhales and it was amazing. They don't slip and provide great support!

Laura Brads


Amazing, Comfortable, Supportive Flips!

I have had 3 back surgeries in the past 5 years, the 3rd this past January being a fusion. I thought I would never be able to wear flip flops again since my arch would fall and they provided absolutely NO support! My physical therapist recommended SOLE's footbeds and all of SOLE's products, so upon buying the footbeds, I thought I would try a pair of sport flips! I LOVE THEM!!!! I am super excited to know that I can wear flip flops again and that, as a matter of fact, my arch and foot would even be supported and super comfortable. The trial of my footbeds and the 2 pair of flips (one casual, one sport) I ordered in the spring is over...I am an official forever fan of SOLE products! I just placed my second SOLE order of 3 new pair of sport flips and another set of footbeds. Thank you, SOLE!!!!!!!!


Feet Savers!

I bought two pairs of these Sport Slim Soles two years ago for my hockey skates and downhill ski boots. They made a huge difference in the comfort of my skates. I have plantar fasciitis and flat feet, and my skates feel like slippers now! My ski boots felt like they were crushing my foot downwards. Now I feel like I have some arch support, and my feet sit more neutral in the boot. I will be buying more pairs for my walking/running shoes and motorcycle boots. Thanks for making such a great product!


Relief

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


Great! But one further improvement

I've got four pairs of these and they work great for my flat feet. I've got $300+ custom foot beds and they are just as good. But like others have reviewed it would be nice if they could make a narrower pair. The thins are great and works in more of my shoes & sneakers, but not all due to the width of them. Come on Sole get them in the design and production stages, pretty sure you'll sell them. BTW their socks are great too!!! thanks again

Ron Ewer


I'm Hooked

After 5 different footbeds, Both off the shelf and custom fitted and two different boot manufacturers, I thought I would never find a pair of boots the would not hurt my feet while hunting in the mountains of Alaska and Colorado. But then I received a pair of Softec Response with a pair of Kenetrek boots and I was hooked. I inserted the Sole footbed into my hiking boot and realized I finally had the right match. I have now put over 30 miles packing 40 to 80 pound packs and my feet never once got blisters and my legs and back handled the heavier load much better. I am hooked I bought a pair of Flips and they are the best feeling flips I have ever had. I just ordered 3 more sets of different foot beds for all my shoes. The customer service is fantastic! I over heated on set of footbeds, melting just the right one. I called to order a new pair and when I mentioned this, the Sole rep. just said " No problem" I'll send you a new pair. That is great service and is the reason I am buying more inserts and letting everyone I know how great Sole inserts are. Keep up the great job. Ski season is coming soon and I will be trying out my new Sole inserts this season! Ron Ewer


Get These

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

best shoes

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


go to

I bought a pair of these from a running store a couple of years ago. I put them in a pair of my post office aproved shoes. I have four different shoes I wear for work all with factory insoles or after market insoles. My favorite pair of shoes hands down is the pair with these Sole Ultra Inserts. Take it from a mail man that walks twelve miles a day and was a foot soldier for seven years, I have tried almost everything when it come to footwear. This is the best insole I have tried so far...


Best so far

While the Sole Ultra has helped my sore feet alot it has not solved all my problems 100%. I work in a warhouse on a cement floor all day and I'm still looking for that product out there that fixes my soreness 100%. This product is the best thing I have found so far, but it has not been the entire answer for me. I don't know where else to go or what else to do. Foot Doctor was recommended to me, so I checked them out, but I can't afford to put out 800 dollars for what they want to give me, so I guess I will keep these for now as they have done better than anything else I have tried.

Richard Ravin


Just give them time

I have pairs of the sport sandals and the causal sandals. After 6 months with the causal sandals the footbed has molded to my foot and the strap has stretched out and the fit great. I can walk for days in these sandals even after a long run. Just give them time and they will be the best sandal you have ever worn.


Best Insoles ever

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

excellent!

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

Hands down the best socks I've ever used

Hands down the best socks I've ever used. I've finished over 75 marathons and ultras and have yet to get a blister in these socks. A couple years back I ordered a couple pair of black socks to use for a 50-mile trail run. Got them on Friday, did the 50 on Saturday and didn't have a single foot issue the entire way. Keep up the great work!

Thin, yes. Casual, yes. Dress, no

Have tried several treatments for my recent development plantar fasciitis and decided to go the orthotic route and SOLE in particular when a friend said the SOLE socks really helped him. Decided to try the Thin Casual so I could wear them in both my dress and running shoes. While the feel great in running and Keen-type casual shoes and have helped tremendously, they are not for dress shoes. A bit disappointed in that respect but overall my foot feels tons better so I can overlook the fact that I cannot wear them during the day at work. Highly recommend and considering purchasing some socks.

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.

Wish I knew about the before!

I was told to get these shoes by my foot doctor after a stress fracture. My $2.00 flip flops were not the cause of my stress fracture, but did not help either. Thanks to a good doctor, and great groupon in December I got a pair. Now I am back to order another color for summer. Best flip flops/sandals ever. Your feet deserve it and they are worth it!


In short, I LOVE 'em!

I don't often bother to give feedback on many products but I felt it was necessary at this time. I purchased your Ultra Softec Footbeds about 3 weeks ago and I am nothing but impressed. I've now used them in my Dakota work boots for 180+ hours, in -30 to +5 outside weather and I am just blown away at how comfortable I've been. My foot fatigue has all but DISAPPEARED! I don't "crackle" when I walk across a room anymore & taking off my boots at the end of the day is more like taking off a sneaker than a ski boot. I swear, my feet have been warmer as well. In short, I LOVE 'em! I wish that I'd had them for all of my 25 years in work boots.

Almost great

I have been a Sole footbed customer for years. When the original sandals came out, I tried them but could never accept the thong. When the slide became available, I ordered a pair immediately. I have worn them constantly since they arrived. The support from the footbed makes the slide the most comfortable sandal I have ever owned. In warm weather, they are all I wear. In cold weather, my shoes hit the closet and are replaced with the slide as soon as I enter the house. Changes? - The front edge of the strap should be scalloped up the instep as it sits too near the toes. When you bend your foot it can rub or poke into the top of your toes. I would love to see a leather upper, and more color choices.

You are doing something very right

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

Now I have them for all my shoes

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

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

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

My dogs were screaming by the end of the day

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


Best relief available

I've read the other reviews and agree. there isn't anything better. I 'had' plantar faciatis. I had a knee replaced. I had a lot of foot pain. I got 3 pair of these and put them in my shoes. Switched them for whatever insoles come with the shoes, and there's always a noticeable improvement. The insoles that come with most any shoe you buy is the cheapest part of the shoe, yet is what you need for good support. Go figure. These are great and will be the only insoles I use...

I'm in LOOOOOOOOOVE

I work 12 hour shifts on a busy nursing floor. There are days I do not get to sit down! I'm also a runner. My feet take a beating. Coming home to my Exhales is something I look forward to every day. Confession: I even wear the suckers to work occasionally when I'm on nights or weekends (yeeees, I disinfect before bringing them home). My Exhales are, without a doubt, the comfiest, cosiest thing my feet have ever encountered. I have orthotics in every pair of footwear that I own but there is something particularrily comforting about the combination of the support, sheepskin foot pad lining and soft sides. My back, hips, knees, bunions and feet THANK YOU.

Warm style

This weekend brought the first brrrr-worthy temperatures to my corner of the world. It also brought more opportunity for me to slip the wonderfully plush SOLE Exhale’s on my feet. The Exhale hearkens back to the childhood days of moon boots. Their upper actually looks like a cross between a low-top moon boot and a super puffy jacket and is water resistant, rip-stop fabric. The footbed is wear moldable which means that, like SOLE’s other shoes, the footbed will become customized to your foot over time, increasing comfort and feel. On top of that, the footbed is Sherpa lined and super soft. Since such a warm shoe could be sweat inducing at times, the Exhale uses Polygiene® as an antimicrobial to fight odor. I think part of the brilliance in SOLE’s production is that all of their shoes and sandals use the same wear moldable footbed. Whether it’s their Platinum Sandals of the Exhale, you can be sure that the shoe is going to feel consistently right on your foot. The Exhale is incredibly roomy inside but it never feels to me like it’s insecure. As for warmth, these are right at the top of the list. Between the fabric and the stuffing, no wind is getting through to make your feet feel the least bit chilly. I actually find myself wearing them at home as much as outside. The heel of the shoe easily folds down (it’s meant to) to give a slip-on feel and I can foresee many days this winter being spent entirely in these shoes. If you don’t already have a pair of über warm casual shoes to keep your feet toasty this winter, the Exhale (for men and women) is a great choice. Also, it’s a perfect way to transition either to or from SOLE’s Platinum Sandals once Summer comes back to town!

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

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


5 years + and still working.

I bought these inserts because I was diagnosed with plantar faciitis. It was very painful and the doctor recommended these. I molded them to my feet and immediately felt relief. I have had the same pair for the last five years and they are still working. I put them in whatever shoes or sneakers that I am wearing after removing the inserts that come with the shoes. I am on my feet all day working and walking back and forth on cement floors. These inserts saved me from constant pain. The top layer is finally wearing thin after all these years so I am going to get another pair. I highly reccommend them to everyone with foot or knee pain.

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!


Foot And Knee Problems??

I run 5 miles a day and after many years of doing this I began having extreme foot pain and knee pain so bad that it stopped me from running. The Dr. diagnosed me with plantar fasciitis and arthritis in my knees. He said my feet would heal by itself in due time but to stay off my feet, but I need to learn to live with the pain in my knees. I did for a while but it didn't improve at all. I finally tried these foot beds and in under a week both problems disappeared completely. I will never wear shoes without them again. I Love them. Thank you so much for making these.

These will keep me jogging on!

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

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.


Superior

Been to the foot doctors and had special orthotics made and they did not help me at all. I purchased these sole products and they are superior. It has helped me tremendously and I will be and on going customer. I just purchased a pair of the slide sandals.


Ready to RUN

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


Happy Troops

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

Life Savers!!!!!

Last year, I broke my foot and had to wear these for a while. But even after my healing stage, I continued to where these amazing shoes. They actually give my foot support unlike other shoes. And get this: they are fashion friendly!


Thank you

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

FIVE STARS !!!!

Most orthopedists will tell you that they will get rich as the flip-flop craze is ruining young peoples feet and backs; wearing something with zero support 24/7 that were designed for wearing at the beach. I’m so glad my Orthopedist turned me onto Sole flips. For someone with pretty flat, pronated feet, your flips actually support the foot; give you an arch, etc. It’s like a flip that’s an orthotic – but the great part is they look like regular flip-flops – not like ortho-flips! I think Sole could do a little better with the color combos, they seem to either be a big bore, or they are “too out there”. I don’t know a lot of guys who will wear bright green and white, the blacks are just too black. I think you are on the right track with the more recent different grays. Keep up the great work! They are pretty expensive for a totally synthetic shoe. How about some leather straps? Even some leather foot beds would be great too.

No pain just comfort

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


Long Lasting cusion and high arch support.

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

Another PT review

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

Loui


LOVE THESE!

I run several miles per week and used to have athletes foot flare up all the time. These socks (a) have built-in arch support, (b) have a cooling mesh by the toes, and (c) survive wash after wash (even with clorox bleach)!! The end result is happy, comfortable feet with no fungus. My whole family (include the guys) buy only this sock brand now. Worth every penny!!! Also - these are thin enough to wear every day even in snug shoes. They are so comfortable you don't even notice them.

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!

I will never buy another brand

I love these inserts. I bought for work original because work 12-hour shifts, in safety-toe shoes, and I walk primarily on concrete for the majority of the shift. Finding good support had been quite challenging. Most shoe inserts are soft and cushion-y to the touch, which I would have thought would help with the impact, but they always lacked in support and my foot would still be sore by the end of the day. These are the best insoles (foot beds) I have ever owned and I will never buy another brand. I have recommended them to several friends at work, and I know at least one has ordered them and expect them to arrive shortly. I expect to continue recommending them for a very long time.


I love them but...

I love these, but they don't fit in all the shoes they suggest. I find that in some shoes my foot sits too high and my heel rubs in and out of the back of the shoe. I do take out the stock insole and that doesn't seem to help. I do LOVE how my feet feel when they do fit properly in some of my shoes, so I am buying the thin sport ones today in hopes they fit my running and walking shoes a bit better. I have also done the "orthotics" thing from the doctors and while they keep your feet in the correct position, these do not solve the cushion problem that I think most of us have. These do both!


What foot problem?

After using one pair of soles for only three weeks I am feeling better than I have in at least four years. I have been to two podiatrist's and six months of intense therapy and these have brought me more relief than anything so far. I recently ordered three more pairs for different types of shoes. You won't see me without them. "They are Great!" My wife and I love to square dance with these we may be able to return soon. Keep up the Great job. Can you please make them for western boots too.

They did what they were supposed to do

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


BETTER THAN PHYSICAL THERAPY?

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

Frank


I am very impressed

A quick word to say thanks for SOLE footbeds! I’ve been using for 2 weeks training now and I have to admit I am very impressed!! Foot stability highly improved, might not make me a faster rider but the sensations awesome!!! ;0)

Chris


Great insoles save 1 tiny thing

These insoles are incredible. They mold EXACTLY to your foot when you mold them as per the instructions and stand normally as you would daily. Do not attempt to correct your posture too much as you will cause some pain in your knees etc, so remail natural. My only complaint, which isn't a complaint b/c I didn't think it through when I purchased them....they stink after a while. So if the stench of your feet is offensive, get the moisture wicking version (which I plan to buy next time)

M. Todd


The SOLE inserts far exceeded my expectations

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

I will be a customer for life

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


Thanks to these, I'm finally healing

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


I like 'em!

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

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

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

I first purchased these for my snowboarding boots

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

What a difference!

Feet were sore, doc said to try arch supports. No big deal right? Wrong. Tried 7 (yes, 7!) different brands of arch supports over the past year. All of them had something I didn't like - too wide, too flat, no heel support, moved around, you name it. Finally I went to custom shoe shop locally and saw the Sole inserts. Salesman swore by them, said fully guaranteed if they didn't work. What can I say other than they feel great, actually fit in my dress shoes, and support my entire foot. I love the firm support under the top cushioning. I've found that if the support is not firm enough, I can really feel it after a long day. A negative would be that they are still slightly thick enough to mess with some dress shoes - making the shoes feel tighter. I had to "rip out" some of my stock inserts to get the Soles to fit correctly. None the less, I completely recommend these!

I am hooked

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

My legs feel fine and I can run even more

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


Plantar Fasciitis

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

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.

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

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

I was suffering from Morton's Neuroma

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

The sole sandals have really helped

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

I decided to try SOLE and since I did I never looked back

As a bike racer I strive to get everything out of myself and to do this I look at every detail from what I eat to what equipment I use, so I decided to try SOLE and since I did I never looked back I went fro
