Great support, but be careful of size. I wear size 36 berks, but the 36 inserts are too small.

I have not been able to use these arch supports. Maybe it is because my feet are small, but they don't seem to hit in the right place and after wearing them my feet and ankles hurt. I have pronation from a broken foot, and have to have support, but these didn't work for me.

Good for plantar fasciitis. Provide great arch support. However, they provide no padding. As I currently wear only running shoes (which provide good padding) I don't need padding in my arch support anyway. So these Birks work wonderfully for me.

These are great for extra arch support in tennis shoes. I just slide them under the provided insole which makes it more comfortable than placing them on top of the insole. I wear a narrow in Birkenstock shoes, but I need a regular width in the arch support insole.

I have used these insoles for a long time and ordered a new pair on Zappos. I have plantar fasciitis and found that these insoles help heal and prevent heel pain. The insoles seem to keep the foot tendon in a stretched position and stretch it out while walking. They may seem like walking on rocks at first but they custom mold to your foot as you use them and then you will not notice their presence. They are perfect for non-supportive winter boots and are fine with walking through heavy snow. Just don't break them in walking through snow drifts or you'll be hurting pretty bad the next day.

The inserts felt great, but would not lay flat in my shoes at the toe end. I've tried them in many shoes, always with the same result. Maybe they were not the right size, but I ordered the same size that I take in Birkenstocks. Since the inserts got a high rating from others, I assume that this is not a common complaint.

I have tried various brands/types of arch supports with disappointment. Even though pricey for my fixed income, I ordered and so glad I did. Wow, what a difference; I can now wear my flat shoes with comfort. I am 72 with failing health; Osteoarthritis consuming my legs & feet. I felt despair as my arches began to fail me. My normal size in all shoes is 7 M however I have a narrow, thin foot so I ordered Size S in this and it is perfect. Thanks Zappos for the best service ever. (I have never worn Birkenstock shoes).

I started working after a five year break to stay home with my son. My job consists of standing up to eight hours at a time, on concrete. After my first full week back, I almost could not walk because my feet and back hurt so badly when I was done working. I went to a local shoe store, where I was fitted with these arch supports. After a week of wearing them, I was virtually pain free when I went home at the end of the day. Two months later, I would not give these up for anything and would highly recommend them to anyone.

I have neuromas in both feet and these really take the pressure off. They fit inside most shoes, except heels and they are very sturdy. I just ordered my second pair after about 8 years wearing the 1st. Expensive, but worth it.

I love these. Most of my shoes and boots don't have any arch support, and these slip in, stay in place, and have relieved a lot of foot pain for me. You can't even see them when you're wearing ballet flats! I only have 1 set right now that I slip into whatever pair of shoes I'm wearing that day, but I am sure I'll purchase one or 2 more so I can have a better rotation.

Expensive, but worth it! I have a medium arch, and this insole provides excellent support in my every-day shoes that aren't supportive enough on their own.

Great arch support and easy to deal with. I've used these for years and love them. I wear them both on top of the regular sport shoe insole and on top if the insole isn't easily removable. I have plantar fascia and have kept it under control for a number of years now by using these and some other Birkenstock supports. In case, you are wondering, these wouldn't work in regular shoes, too wide for most.

Not the full, true Birk footbed experience, but a close second! Very convenient to swap into retro/style sneaks, which tend to have flat footbeds with absolutely no arch support (ah, the 70's).

My husband has totally flat feet. He has had several pairs of custom orthotics over the years. We found these footbeds about 7 years ago, and he now uses them exclusively. They never really wear out, he still uses his original ones occasionally. But once in a while we get a new pair. My daughter's wedding was two weeks ago, and a few days before it was scheduled, I thought of my husband's new shoes, and decided to try and find a new pair of Footbeds. The first place I looked was right here at Zappos, and lo and behold, there they were! I ordered them at 5 PM, they were at my door at 10 the next morning. How can anyone argue with that? I spent 2 minutes of my time, and no gas to get exactly what I needed in lightning speed! Zappos rocks!

Just love the Birk arch supports! Very comfortable and gives feet great support. At work I walk on hard floors all day and find with the Birks my feet don't hurt at the end of the day. The ability to use them in various shoes is a real plus. Definitely Five Stars in my book.

I bought this for my 31 year old son who inherited my flat feet and was having plantar whatchamacallit problems like I used to have, before I came upon these Birkenstock insoles 12 years ago. I've been using them ever since, shifting them between shoes, My son's response was: "The arches are working great. I wear them all the time in my sneakers that I wear to work and I haven't really noticed any arch pain since putting them in. My heels have been a little sore in the past week but my feet are doing a lot better than a month ago." They cost a bit, but it beats spending $400 for custom-made orthopedic inserts, and these things last for years.

Many thanks to Zappos for getting me what I needed in super speedy time. These supports are terrific in that I can switch them from shoe to shoe as needed, and my feet are so much happier when I do. Thank you, Zappos!

Added these supports to some non-supportive Merrells by slipping them under the regular insoles, Heaven! Only will work for me if the shoes are roomy enough to use with 2 sets of insoles, since it seems like the support might pinch if used alone, being only a partial length insole.

I got this for some plantar fascia and because I trust the Birkenstock name. I'm not 100% sure what I think. It is definitely significantly better and it fits in my shoe nicely, it does not feel as good as their clog, but for taking a long walk, they're good. A nice alternative to an expensive orthotic.

The footbed was an almost instant relief to my plantar fasciitis. I now move it from my walking shoes to my work shoes every day! Time to buy another pair. I ordered the inserts on a Thursday evening, and I received them on Friday afternoon at my office. Thanks Zappos for the great shipping.

Highly recommended. I have plantar fasciitis and it\'s painful for me to walk without additional support. Although these inserts are pricey, they really work! I appreciate being able to order them in a narrow width also. It\'s wonderful to be able to walk without limping and totally pain free. Thank you Zappos for making these available!

I had my doubts when I ordered these supports that they would fit in the intended shoes, but they did! They fit in my flat, flat ballet slipper style shoes and in everything else, too -- even heels. Great arch support!
