I would recommend

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


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


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.


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.


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!

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!


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!


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!


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!


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.


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.


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 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.

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!


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.


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.


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.


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!


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!


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.


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!!

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.


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.


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


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!


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.

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.


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!


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.


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!

Todd S McKinnon


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 pes planus (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


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.


"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.


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!


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.


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!


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.


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.


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.


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.

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.


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!


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!


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!


Supportive and protective

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


Insole Review

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

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!!!


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.


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!


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.


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!

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.

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.


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.

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.


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!!!!


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.


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.

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.


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!!!


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!


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.


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.

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


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.

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 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!

John Russell


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.


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.


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!!

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.


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!


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.

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.

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!.

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


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!

Brian johnson


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.

carol chandler


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.


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:-)

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!!


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 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.

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!

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.


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.


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!

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!

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)

Sam Brown


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.


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.

Brad


My foot pain has almost completely disappeared

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

Tony Davies


The best thing I bought myself in years

i've just ended my first days work with my new sole innersoles in my steel toecaped booots and can hand on heart say there the best thng i bought myself in years,ive spent hundreds of pounds on other innersoles from shops and off ebay trying to ease the pain in my foot and knees, after having them in my boots for 8 hours iv noticed my left foot is not aching and i noticed my knees are not aching throuh them grinding, i ony hope the pain relief continues. i hope i can get a pair for my training shoes and 1 day be able to go back the gym pain free


Bravo!

My physical therapist recommended these Sole footbeds while treating me for arthritis in my knees. He noted that I have high arches, and felt that these inserts might help with my foot pain as well as my knee pain. I was very skeptical as I had been fitted for custom orthotics by a podiatrist several years ago, and those inserts only added pain to the balls of my feet, for a cost of $300! But I tried these Sole inserts anyway. Unbelievable! The relief was so immediate, and has continued on. We just took a three week trip, and spent much time walking in New York City. Unforgiving pavement no problem. I am recommending Sole footbeds to my two children who are runners and to my sister who also has foot and knee pain. Very grateful, Sue from Santa Fe

Great investment

I was in so much pain while training for a marathon that I went to a podiatrist. He fitted me with stiff, custom orthotics to manage arthritis in my foot and told me not to run again. When I quizzed him about exercise, he told me that if an exercise did not cause discomfort, I was free to pursue it. Thus emboldened, I decided to see whether Sole inserts for my moderate-support running shoes would let me continue running. They were a breeze to mold, are far more comfortable than the flimsy inserts that came with the shoes, and--woo hoo!--I can run again without pain. I won't push it, no more than 6-7 miles max, but but being able to continue to indulge in my 40+ year obsession with running is a great gift. I just bought two more pairs for other shoes. Great product!

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

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

Mike


Have definitely improved my cycling

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

Tina


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

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


Awesome!!

I am a Naval Flight Officer, and bought these inserts to put in my flight boots. By far one of the betrter footwear decisions I've ever made. The inserts got me through a deployment to Afghanistan and are about to go for a second. The inserts made my boots infinitely more comfortable and have virtually eliminated my foot and knee pain from walking on unfinished surfaces. I just got another pair of flight boots and plan on getting another pair of inserts to go in them.

Curtis Driver


Better than custom

As a Physician Assistant and Athletic Trainer in the US Army I see soldiers with foot pain and overuse injuries everyday. With these footbeds I have gotten soldiers back to full activity faster than with custom orthotics costing 4-5X as much. I wouldn't use any orthotic myself than sole. Curtis Driver PA-C, ATC

Best $$ spent on flip flop sandals to date

I was diagnosed with sesamoiditis in addition to being completely flat footed. Therefore most shoes without backs or without sturdy bottoms irritated my toes. My condition improved over the last few months by wearing support shoes (e.g. Danskos), but I was going to need something for summer. I am a flip flop wearer, without a doubt, and was having a hard time deciding if I was going not wear flip flop sandals all summer or suffer through the pain. Luckily, when I read about your sandals, I decided that it was worth the $70 to try them. Best $$ spent on flip flop sandals to date. :)


Na I can't believe it

I work in a busy Emergency room, these inserts have eliminated back pain and foot pain. I am a big man, without pain..thank you very much

Michael Kelley


fantastic product

I was a little skeptical that this product would help with my plantar fasciitis, but I thought I'd give it a try. I don't run as much as Dean Karnazes does (obviously), but recently after upping my mileage to about 25 miles per week I developed some severe pain in the heel and bottom of my right foot. I made an appointment with a podiatrist but wasn't able to get in for 2 weeks. So in the meantime I ordered a pair of these insoles. Shipping was very fast and after convincing my wife that I wasn't nuts, I put these in the oven and gave them a try. After no running at all for 2 weeks, I put these in my running shoes and went out for a 4 mile run. There was very minimal foot pain. Two days later, I went for a 6 mile run with no pain at all. Now I'm getting close to the 25 miles per week and am still having no issues. The longest I've run with these so far is 11 miles with no foot discomfort at all. These insoles are fantastic and I will definitely purchase another pair once these wear out. Thank you, Sole!

Very painful case of Plantar Fasciitis

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

I can work out, walk and be on my feet all day

Please explain your foot-related problems prior to purchase: A. I could hardly walk as my feet were putting out the alighment of my knees(and the rest of my body). I was sent to Poditarists and had more than one pair of orthotics made. some of them helped a bit but a lot of them made it so I could hardly walk at all and had so much more pain.This was very costly also. Then I went to a Chiropracter who works on pressure points. It is a total different way of alighning ones body. When I stated seeing my Chiropracter I stopped wearing my orthopics as I would just be put into balance and my orthopics would put me right out of sorts again. But I needed something and as I had been trying out the SOLE INSOLES, I started to wear them daily. It is hard to get the thinner insoles, as Work World's mainly sell the thick ones. So thanks to the staff from Sole in Calgary for mailing me out a pair of red Soles. I can work out, walk, and be on my feet all day and my legs get tired but I do not have the knee pain as the knee is getting stronger. The doctors kept telling me I was just getting old and to expect the pain and knees going. But I kept thinking NO they are wrong. There has to be something out there and it is such a simple thing, A insole that works. More people have to learn not to give up when they are in pain and in there heart know that there knees are turning in because of the way there feet are or there back or hips or neck or so many parts of the body hurt or you are taking pain killers just to get through the day. Begin at your Feet and if at first you are not getting any leadway, don't give up. Keep trying. Go to the Sole Site, or just try a pair, often the body has to be put into alighment first then with the insoles life will begin. And I feel the insoles should be sold in some shoe stores. Often the sales clarks get to know your feet. Find a establised store and get to know them like you do a Doctor.

Couldn't Skate Without Them

These footbeds are tremendous! I have a pair in my CCM hockey skates and my K2 inlines, and I cannot imagine ever skating without them again. They have improved my ice skating by giving me more power and a much better feel for the ice; and have aleviated the foot pain I used to experience after only a few miles on inline skating. I can't wait for the coming spring as I plan to skate my first marathon in May.


Awesome

I was having alot of pain in the arch of my foot for 7 or 8 months. I went to the docter and I was told that I had flat feet and was suffering from Plantar Fasciitis. He wanted me to get prescription ortho's. After being looked at by the Physical Therapist he recommened that I give the Sole Softec Regulars a try. I was amazed at the relief that this product has given me. I ordered another pair along with a pair of your plantinum sandles. Awesome product.

Nicole


Far Exceeded my Expectations

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

Marcos


The DKs are Awesome

i had sesamoiditis in my right foot... underneath my big toe. i'm addicted to tennis, so this was a serious problem, and it just refused to heal... i finally started looking into getting a custom orthotic, but i don't have the best health insurance right now, so the cost would have been a bit much. i did some research online, and your insoles were recommended on a message board. i order a pair of DK insoles and they were amazing. I ordered a second pair, and i don't wear shoes unless i have them in there. My foot isn't completely healed yet, but I've made a lot of progress since i started using the SOLE DK and i experience no pain or discomfort at all while i'm wearing them. i absolutely love your product. the DKs are awesome. i will definitely buy a few more and have wholeheartedly recommended them to a few people.

Jessica


No further issues with footpain

I have had plantar fascitis in the past. Initially I wore a custom orthotic, however, as soon as the Sole product became available I have been using the Sole footbed. I have had no further issues with foot pain since wearing the Sole footbed.


Army boots and plantar fasciitis

I have plantar fasciitis. I require custom orthotics, but insurance companies suck swampwater. My custom orthotics fell apart so I tried the Sole brand insoles after finding them in the PX. These things fit like a glove, hold arches where they need to be and all my foot pain has gone. I have about 6 pairs of these things and I'm sold on sole.

Karen M


Your feet and legs will thank you

A must for anyone who is on their feet! I'm a runner and started having foot pain in various areas. This SOLE Custom Footbeds solved the aches and pains. My hip problem also disappeared. I own 2 pair and wear one for my workouts and one for everyday wear. Your feet and legs will thank you.

I am now pain free once again

I am a 52 year young runner here in the desert of Arizona. I have been running since high school and still enjoy the competition of road, track and trail running. I win or place in my age group most of the time. Yes, I have had my down times. Some due to over training and some due to "I'll just sleep a little longer." Recently I developed a Metatarsal injury on my left foot. I went through the routine of resting, icing and stretching without success. I thought for sure that I would have to take an extended time off from running. I tried various inserts to provide more protection for the foot. I even had a custom insert made by an orthopedic doctor. None of these attempts provided the protection I needed. On a visit to my local Performance Footwear running store, I noticed the "Your SOLE" display. I thought I had to give them a try. Not only did SOLE Custom Footbeds allow me to resume my normal training routine, it also allowed my metatarsal to recover and I am now pain free once again. Thank you "Your SOLE" for helping me to continue doing the sport I have loved for so long."

The sense of relief was virtually immediate

I'm an active 53-year-old living in beautiful British Columbia. I overdid it on a couple of extended hikes this past summer and developed significant foot arch pain, something I had never experienced before. Being an avid hiker, skier, and mountain biker, I was pretty bummed out. I had resigned myself to a period of enforced rest and the purchase of expensive orthotics when the folks at my local Valhalla Pure store suggested I give the Sole footbed a try. I did, and I'm not making this up when I tell you the sense of relief was virtually immediate. I installed the footbeds in my running shoes on Friday, wore them around the house Saturday, and went golfing with my son on Sunday, pain free! I plan to get another pair for my ski boots as well. Thank you."

SOLE results in less fatigue

Wobble-naught CAD fitting & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish use Sole as a bio-feedback device. We want all our dealers to use them. Misaligned joints are very common in fitting business. Sole assist our CAD to correct alignment issues, providing pain relief & wear and tear to the body. With the correct bike setup, Sole footbeds allows the cyclists to get on the pedal stroke early and stay on it longer. We suggest the Sole due to its ability to mold to the needs of many different shoe types. You get a better inteface of shoe and human foot. The advantage is it is not made by just standing or sitting in a static position, but like "Speed balancing tires", while you pedal. After we have the cleat correct and the bike dialed to the human to the milimeter, then we have them mount the bike while in a trainer and mold the Sole while they pedal. It's that simple! The Sole footbed improves performance as it reduces the lag time of getting on the pedal storke. Using our Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish, we teach pedaling from the arches rather than the toes or heel and the only way you can get the feedback to the brain is by having a footbed making contact w/ the arch. The skeletal muscle system is a voluntary system; that is, it needs an intact nerve supply to contract, and does so mostly as a result of conscious direction from the brain. If you can't feel your arch, you can't determine how to move your best! By using our Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish, we can see the difference a Sole footbed makes. The electrical activity of muscles responding to nevous stimuli during human movement can be monitored with our technique call electromyography (EMG). We measure in millionths of a volt (microvolts)! The greater the intensity of contraction, or tension, the greater the electrical output. The sEMG can also reveal the declining output as muscular fatigue takes place. Without Sole, the muscles don't fire as well, and faster fatigue is the result. With the Sole, the results are the muscles start firing better and fatigue less, and pedal performance comes forth!

I have recommended SOLE footbeds to several of my customers

Before I tried SOLE footbeds, my right foot hurt so bad I had a noticeable limp. After using the SOLE footbed, the foot pain disappeared. My golf game has also improved. I feel much more solid over the ball. I have recommended SOLE footbeds to several of my customers. They too, seem to like SOLE footbeds as much as I do. I think all shoes should have SOLE. Thanks a lot.

Ted McGreer


I've sold a pile of sandals

As a Specialty Footwear Retailer, I have access to virtually every shoe on the market. When Sole decided to launch the Platinum Sandal, I was very sceptical of an $80 sandal. In fact, I decided not to order any for my store because I felt the price was just too high. When my sales rep at Sole asked me to simply try one pair for myself, I thought, fair enough I'll test them out. Two months later, I've sold a pile of these sandals, and I've not taken my pair off my feet. Keep in mind I personally own over 300 pairs of shoes. This sandal is biomechanically perfect, great for people with or without foot pain, and is bar none the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. Another great product from Sole!

Martha B


I love my SOLEs

I love my SOLES! My plantar faciitis is much better. I have had it for two years and have tried many different orthotics and wraps. Now, I only notice foot pain when I wear dress shoes that cannot handle the SOLES. Keeping my arch in the correct position has enabled me to be on my feet much longer without pain. The dress SOLES have enabled me to use good arch support in most of my shoes.

Rudy Martini


After heat molding, the footbeds fit my feet perfectly

I recently purchased the Sole footbeds and placed them in a pair of walking shoes. I have a problem with Plantar Fasciitis of the heel. Since placing the Sole footbeds into my shoes and doing a few exercises the pain in my foot began to disappear. I heated the Soles in the oven at 200 deg F as per directions. The soles fit my feet perfectly..I would certainly recommend the Sole FootBeds to anyone having problems with Bone Spurs (Plantar Fasciitis)....Yours truly,

Rob Allen


I wish I had found these sooner

I just recently beat a bad case of plantar fasciitis using cortisone shots and rehab. I was also fitted for a pair of custom orthotics to help prevent a recurrence. However, due to their rigid composition, they don't fit in all of my shoes. As a result of this, I decided to buy a pair of the SOLE Softec Ultra footbeds to use as a substitute in those shoes. I've used SuperFeet, SofSol, and Hapad in the past in an attempt to alleviate general foot pain caused by standing or walking too much, but none of them ever seemed to help. Therefore, my expectations weren't very high for the SOLE footbeds...I figured I would be satisfied if all they gave me were some extra arch and heel support to help keep the plantar fasciitis at bay. However, after a couple of long days on my feet, I realized that not only had these footbeds given me the extra support I was looking for, but they also made a significant difference in the amount of general foot pain caused by too much time on my feet. I only wish I had found these sooner! Thanks!

A great product that can be worn out of the box

I have used many off-the-shelf arch supports over the past ten years as an Orthotist for residents of Kansas. These people are soldiers and I see a variety of foot types. I average about 90 patients per week with approximately 70% having foot related problems. Most of these problems are associated with hyper-mobile joints of the foot causing a flattened arch. With most shoes or boots this flattened arch position is present due to inadequate insoles that are not conformed to every persons feet. Some of the problems are plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, shin splints, knee pain and sometimes hip and low back pain. SOLE has come up with a great product that can be worn out of the box or heat molded to fit a persons feet. These orthotics have proven to provide the contour that people need in their shoes and I often get requests for more than one pair. SOLE Custom Footbeds are a cost effective way to reduce the hyper-mobility of the feet comfortably without adjustments.

I can stand and walk without crying or pain

I bought my first pair on Valentine's Day and my second pair of Sole Orthotics last month as a spare to use in my gardening shoes. I was diagnosed with Morton's Neuroma and I had severe pain while trying to stand and walk and couldn't wear any pair of shoes without whimpering. After getting 3 injections in my foot with no relief, I was finally given the name of Fit-Right Northwest to obtain a special pair of shoes. I ended up getting a pair of Brooks with a wider box. The shoes alone didn't stop the pain and discomfort but as soon as the salesperson put in my very first pair of Sole Orthotics and I tried walking, I was totally amazed at the difference. I was so happy and so thrilled that I told the salesperson I could hug him for the pain relief. He also put a little cushion on your Sole at the ball of the feet and wearing the new shoes with your orthotics since Valentine's Day has made a world of difference to me and the ability to stand and walk without crying and without pain. So I wish to say a special "Thank You" for creating such a good, wonderful, and reasonably priced orthotic. Thank You

We can now do things that involve walking

My Husband doesn't type, so he told me to send this. Your insoles have been a God send. I prayed for him to get help. He could only work about 2 hours a day. His foot hurt so bad in the morning that he almost had to hop. Now he can work 5+ hours and doesn't hardly limp. It is night and day different. He used to say his foot was killing him. Now I hardly ever hear him complain. The doctors had x-rayed his foot and said there was nothing wrong with it. Our insurance is terrible so he didn't want to go back. He is a different person now. We can now do things that involve walking. It had hurt for several years and he was resigned to living with the pain. Now he doesn't have to. He has told everyone about your company. Thank you so much.

Sharron Burnard


These insoles are better than sex

I wanted you to know that these insoles are better than sex. In the past year or so my feet have been killing me, my face probably looked like a prune with the pain, due only in part to high arches and insteps and over pronation of the left foot, due to poor fitting and non supporting athletic shoes by inexperienced shop staff. However, I had tried spenco and superfeet, the latter being ok, but not having any metatarsal cushioning. Now to sole orthotics, I bought a pair 3 days ago, and the relief was immediate. I now find myself running up stairs rather than creeping up like a crab to the hip pain; Enough said. "The best and better than sex" should be your slogan. Of course, just for people with foot problems. Thanks.

Chrystal Strauss


Thanks so much for such a GREAT product and the prompt service

I've suffered from foot pain for a short time, but long enough to know that if your feet hurt, you hurt all over!! After being on my feet all day on cement I was ready to try anything. Found your site on the net and decided to give it a try. Ordered them online and watched the FedEx site for delivery time. Couldn't wait to try them. The day they were due to arrive we had a snow storm here in Iowa and I had just presumed they wouldn't be delivered due to the weather conditions. That night I checked the FedEx sight one last time and to my surprise it said they were on my front porch !! I couldn't wait to get them on and after only the second day with them-- I hate to take them off!!! They feel so good and my feet don't hurt!! Thanks so much for such a GREAT product and the prompt service.

I just find these SOLES the best for my knees and foot pain

We use a lot less Motrin now!

I want to add another sport to your list - soccer. These SOLE inserts have been great to put in my teenagers' soccer cleats. They both experienced a lot of heel pain from running in cleats all of the time & we've found that even the best soccer cleats just don't give good support. The SOLE inserts have totally eliminated the foot pain that was just part of the soccer season for them. We use a lot less Motrin now!

Thank you so much for this product

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

A year ago my feet looked like a war zone.

A year ago my feet looked like a war zone. The week between long runs wasn't enough to remedy the huge blisters I was getting on the sides of my feet and under many of my toes. The toes on the right foot suffered and the side of my left foot never could callus! My friend Jane kept talking about her magic socks - I'd tried everything - body glide, alcohol soaks - you name it. So I went to my local running store, Colorado Running Company and told Alicia I wanted some magic socks because Jane swore by them. She knew exactly what I was talking about. And the magic socks were good - but the really amazing thing is that magic Sole socks combined with the magic Sole insert mean that I am blister free - well except for the pinky toe on the left foot that I step on for 26.2 miles! Seriously, I had a massage today, just two weeks after running the Boston Marathon and my massage therapist, having seen the horror of my feet after previous marathons, marveled at them. She said that few marathoners feet looks this good. I'm running in the same shoes - training shoes and race day shoes - that I was a year ago. The difference - my Sole socks and my Sole inserts. I had enough other aches and pains to worry about during the marathon - it's nice to know that I don't have to worry about my feet anymore. I'm a believer - magic does work, especially when it's called Sole.

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

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