Sole OVERDELIVERED on value!

These are the most comfortable and anatomically aligned flips flops that you will ever wear. I am so delighted to have come across this company that I've went ahead and bought 2 pairs of insoles as well. This is really an investment in your comfort and safety. I find my balance and gait are much more stable now, reducing the risk of injury. I'm a customer for life now!

My Happy Feet

I've been wearing SOLEs for about 5 years now. I keep no less than 8 pairs at all times. They have been all over the world with me, because... they make my feet feel amazing. I hated flip flops my whole life, until I found my SOLEs. Thank you for making my feet happy.

Life changing

My first purchase was while I hiked the Appalachian Trail. I learned my instep was 2 sizes larger than the shoes I wore. I was able to pop these guys into my hikers and they easily molded to my feet as I hiked on. They gave so much more support than I've ever had. I've been loyal to SOLE since. All of my shoes and boots have a SOLE insole. My feet are happy and so am I! Lovelovelove

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.

life saver

These sandals are awesome! I struggle off and on with plantar fasciitis and a Morton's neuroma. These are the only flip flops I can wear. I wear them all winter long in Arizona not only because the weather is warm but because I have tile floors and these flip flops offer me the footbed my feet require to be happy. I also have SOLE insoles in all my shoes and wouldn't walk anywhere without them.

Gwen Converse


Love these shoes!

I have 5 pairs of SOLE flips. I have had plantar fasciitis in the past and these have been a life saver. I wear them as slippers in the house year round and my feet are happy! Love this product!

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.

SOLE insoles

These insoles have given me a new lease on life. I have arthritis in my feet. I had flare ups so bad I thought I might have to quit working. But these insoles have greatly improved my mobility. I am able to continue working. I love these footbeds!

Saved my (summer) life!

SOLE cork bottom sandals have made it possible for me to were "flip flops" again! With the cork bottom and extra cushioning, I can now wear summer sandals without any leg or knee problems. I highly recommend them!

Hayley Thiessen


Game changer!

I am here to tell you that after years of painful feet and shins the SOLE insole that I purchased has literally changed my life. I can participate in my daily walks, hikes with friends, and badminton whenever I get the chance. Thank you SOLE for making quality insoles at affordable prices!

Melissa Haibeck


Insoles

I wear these insoles and bought some for my daughter as she probates in her shoes. They have changed her life! I put them in her runners as well as her cleats for soccer and her knee pain etc has completely stopped. Love these!!

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.

Christine Rutledge


Amazing

These are beyond amazing! Sole flips allow me to walk again without pain in my hips, knees, or feet! They have changed my life! I now have two pairs for inside and three pairs for outside. I will continue to purchase SOLE products. I cannot wait for the boots!

My experience says these are the best

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

A happy runner once again!

I was bothered by bad plantar fasciitis for more than a year and was unable to run regularly due to the pain. I had to force myself to rest for a period of time before running again and the pain would come back after I resume my running. I saw my favourite runner - Dean Karnazes was advertising for Sole footbeds and started to do research on it and found out that they may help me to treat my plantar fasciitis. I bought a pair of the thickest version and used them on my running shoes. True enough, I was able to run pain-free. I was so amazed. I have been running every single day now and I am no longer being bothered by PF. They are life-changing. I am able to enjoy running again!!!

Best insole i ever tried

I have been a runner all my life. i am now 60 years old. Due to long distance running and a job which requires standing all day my feet have become flat. Almost no arch at all. These insoles have changed my life. After trying various insoles that cost more than three times the price of these I finally have found the best insole on the market. Even better than the ones I had custom made from my doctor. I was told at the shoe store that my podiatrist recommended that she had never seen such feet as flat as mine. She couldn't believe I did not have an arch. It is a result from running on pavement and standing on hard cement floors. These insoles support my feet like i have an arch again. it has also helped my back and knees although I never thought i had a problem with either. Thank you for making such a superior product and please continue to do so. i don't know what I would do without your product.

Andy


Love these

I've been wearing custom medical orthotics for years and haven't found a successful off the shelf orthotic until now. Bought a pair at REI and *love* them. The performance thick soles are exactly what I need. Have been wearing them comfortably for days. I may not need to keep getting medical orthotics. Thank you SOLE for delivering a real orthotic with a real arch to it. You've just earned a customer for life.

Warren Drell


Life changing

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

Derek Tsui


Who knew?!

My whole life, I've been wearing the regular surf branded flips that were flat and soft, aka "comfortable". I didn't think anything of it other than I needed something to slip on on a hot day. After I received my Beach Flips, my feet were thanking me! Solid sole foundation, great arch support, and supports waste reduction. Who knew flip flops were just as important to support healthy feet?!

Heather M


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.

Colin James


Love them!!!

I love these Flips because I have flat feet and need insoles in my shoes. These are the only Flips I've ever had that my feet are comfortable in. I live in Hawaii so I wear them every day. I'm a customer for life! I just bought another pair.

Jahangir J.


SOLE changed my life!

I'm so happy with the purchase. SOLE SIMPLY changed my life !!! I spent hundreds of dollars on orthotics , none worked out for me and they were waste money. I was suffering from plantar fasciitis for couple of months, running and doing exercises were becoming difficult and painful. After purchasing your products, I'm hitting the gym and trails everyday and I don't feel any pain in my feet. Thank you for designing such an awesome product !

Ian Thornton


Thank you!

Thank you. Your soles have corrected my plantar fasciitis, therefore my knees and my back. I am a 46 year-old full-time father of a two and one year old. I've just run a half marathon and can pick up my two young children and dance them to sleep. My children are happy because I am mobile and they have my full attention. I run six days a week with no pain. I have lost thirty pounds, and because I can run, I can write. I'm an English novelist living in Toronto and running/walking is how and where I get my ideas. Your soles might have saved my life. Thank you.

Lifesaver

We got a package from SOLE early winter with Repel Ravens for my husband and Loft Obsidian for me. They were a life saver this winter. We can attest to their comfort and durability. Thank you

Pam Wise


Cured!

I Have suffered from plantar faciatis for years and the last few months before getting these shoes were the worst. I could barely walk and I had 4 cortisone shots without any relief. I was sceptical about how these would work-How could these "become" custom to my feet? Well they do! I wear them around the house as slippers and never go without them. Now I am completely pain free! I can wear heels again and it's just like I never had any issues. I love them and will wear them the rest of my life.

mark asher


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

Ryan Schweitzer


I owe you so much

I have been living with horrible plantar fasciitis for over a year now. I tried just about every insole I could get my hands on with no results. Being an Infantryman in the Army I come across a lot of gimmicks and plenty of people looking to take our money. One day I went into the clothing and sales on Fort Bliss and I saw a rack of these Sole Softec Response Moldable Footbeds. A salesperson was doing a bit of a demo showing how easy these insoles are to mold and how firm the arch support was. I read the directions and figured even I can't mess this up. A few minutes of trimming and a few minutes in the oven and in the boots they went. I have been pain free every day since. As I look back at all of the money I wasted on insoles, night splints and all of the time spent suffering with horrible pain, I honestly thought I would suffer for the rest of my life. Thank you so much for making a quality product that honestly saved my career and gave me life back. If there is anything that I can do for your company other than telling everyone I can think of about your product please let me know. I owe you so much.

Works as well as custom made

I developed plantar fasciatiis a few years ago. I have a very high arch to my feet have hurt at some point all my life. I had custom made orthodics and worn those for a few years until they were falling apart. I bought Sole inserts while shopping for athletic shoes. I compared the design to the custom made ones and there was not much difference. I put them right in my shoes (I did not bother to heat and mold them) and they work just as well as the custom molds. I have purchased another pair and plan to order the lighter version for more casual shoes. I would say to try these first before going to the poditrist.

DAVID MILLETTE


NO MORE BACK PAIN

Sixty-two years ago I was born with flat feet so I've always needed arch support. All the products that I tried, over the years offered varying degrees of service life with a max of say... 3-months! I bought my 1st pair of SOLE's over a year ago. Within hours of using this product, sciatica and low back pain disapeared! Whats-more? I get 3-times more service life out of my footwear AND the original pair of SOLE's are still in service! I love these things...they have saved me $$$ too.

Roslyn Wetzel


Life Savers!!!!!

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

Marcos L.


they have helped tremendously

I sware by these insoles. For the last nine months, I have been suffering with heel pain - plantar fasciitis. I tried several different insoles, even custom orthotics and the best pain relief I could get is by wearing the DK Insoles. While I won't say they have "cured" my problem, they have helped tremendously. None of the other insoles gave me the deep heel cup or the fit and comfort of your product. Thanks SOLE! You have a loyal customer for life.

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.

Ben Andrews


Changed my life

I've tried and failed in the past to get into running due to knee, hip and pain caused by my over pronation. Having a pair of these into my various shoes, I'm feeling great, and on my way to running my first triathlon. I had various custom cast orthotics made for me during my teens, but these beet them hands down. A note on the customer service I have recieved: Excelent! They even replaced my first pair after I incinerated them (set oven to Celcius during an attack of stupidity).

Bill Drake


BETTER THAN PHYSICAL THERAPY?

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

I will be a customer for life

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

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.

Steve adams


Urban streets, high altitude mountains or desert terrain, you can't go wrong!

I've owned 4 pair of your insoles and have used them in every conceivable environment to include the craziness you find in combat zones. They really do breathe new life into new and old footwear. Why pay big money for new shoes or boots when you can spend one quarter to one half the amount and renew your footwear to practically brand new status? SOLE insoles had me at hello....

Mary


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

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

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

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

I 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.

Twelve Hour Days

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

They have made my training and racing on the bike much better

I love the insoles, they have made my training and racing on the bike much better. I really like the customer service, and how helpful the staff is. I get a replacement sent to me at no charge before my RMA is received. Keep up the good work, as long as things stay the same I'm a customer for life. I've even purchased insoles for all my family members. Nice Job!

Vicki Leafgren


Thanks for introducing a great product

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

John Handy


I am a long-time user

I am a long-time user. During a bout with plantar fasciitis, I read a review of your product in Tennis Magazine. I tried them and have had no more problems with my plantar fascia. The two pair I am buying now will bring my total in use to five. Rather than move them from shoe to shoe, they are inexpensive enough to buy one pair for each pair of shoes. I use the thicker soles for tennis shoes and the thinner for boat shoes. If you could develop something for shoes without removable innersoles, life would be almost perfect.

I absolutely love my footbeds

I absolutely love my footbeds. These are the second pair I have purchased and for the first time in my life, my feet don't hurt after running or walking. I've had semi-custom orthodics made by a physical therapist due to my excessive pronation but they never could get them quite right and after 3 tries, I switched to my sole footbeds and have been very happy. I use them in my running shoes and casual shoes. Next I'm going to get a pair for my dress shoes and casual shoes. And I've told pretty much anyone that would listen to me about them and how much I like them. Before I used them , I didn't know that your feet didn't have to hurt!
