I always have my Brooks. They have to have the right insoles in them, which are the SOLE footbeds by Dean Karnazes, who is an ultramarathoner. You put the inserts in the oven for two minutes and then stand on them, and they work for me better than any other insert I’ve ever put in my shoe. I got that tip from the Navy SEAL that lived with us for a month.

What’s not to love about SOLE footbeds. They feel great underfoot, and they’re easy on the environment. To me, that’s a winning combination!

I can run again! Unable to enjoy running for two years due to heel pain. Different doctors, different orthotics, no difference. I now have SOLE Active Thick footbeds in my runners and have trained for a few months. No more heel pain! Getting ready for the 30K race around the Bay! Thank you SOLE.

Sara BLAKELY

I love SOLE! I have successfully used SOLE footbeds for many years. Initially for hiking and backpacking. They saved my knees from the constant impact of long descents while carrying heavy packs. After contracting plantar fasciitis from running in shoes with poor insoles, I started wearing SOLE footbeds in all my shoes including my everyday business dress shoes, running, tennis and softball shoes. I firmly believe that SOLE footbeds not only allowed me to “play thru” and continue to enjoy the activities I love, but also helped significantly with recovery from plantars.

Sara BLAKELY

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 painfull. 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!
