I have osteoarthritis severely in the metatarsal bones in one foot. My expensive shoes such as Stuart Weitzman and Donald Pliner were getting unbearable to wear with not enough arch support. Danskos were great, but I sometimes want something with a little more pizazz. These inserts were the answer. I am not completely pain free, but at least I can walk now after wearing my non-arch shoes for the day with these inserts. These inserts fit very nicely into almost any shoe, versus other inserts that make the shoe tight. These work with every pair of shoes I have. I have bought another set so I am not pulling out of shoes as often.

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.

These things are great! I work 12 hour shifts and I'm on my feet most of the time. I've worn these for two days now and my feet don't hurt at all.

These arches are amazing! I have very flat feet and I love wearing Birkenstock sandals so I decided to try these out, great arch support and even more comfortable than my custom made orthotics. They really give me a bounce in my step! I highly recommend these to anyone who needs great arch support! I was able to fit them in my running sneakers, Fashion sneakers, and even my tiny ballet flats!

Awesome support. Bought one and then a week later a second one. I have no arches and the support of these is compensating very nicely. Love them and highly recommend them for others.

I have worn Birkenstock sandals and shoes for many years. Bought these supports to put in my walking shoes. They really are comfortable and help relieve the pain in my arch. I wear size 36 in the sandals and supports, 37 in shoes. The supports go under the insoles of the shoes so they don't work if the insole is glued down.

Heel spurs run in my family, and at 25 I was starting to get them as well. I was in so much pain, I could hardly walk, especially in flats. After just a few days of wearing these, the pain completely went away and it has stayed away (at least four months). I feel like they are true to size, although it did take me a little bit to get used to them. I wear these in flats, boots, and sometimes even heels if they do not show. I was hesitant to spend so much money just for inserts, but they have made a world of difference. The quality is phenomenal and I can tell that they will last a long time.

I overpronate very badly and I ussually wear inserts that i got from a podiatrist when I was 18. They still work better than anything else I have tried so far other than real Orthaheels, but these inserts were nearly as good as the ones i got from my podiatrist! These are sturdy and don't flatten out when I stand on them as do the leather or cushy ones i have tried. They hold my foot where it should be and they fit in my New Balance shoes very nicely without taking the insert that comes in it out. Bottom line; I am so very glad I tried these, it has saved me a trip to an expensive specialist to get a second pair of inserts.

These are very disappointing! The metal strip on the bottom of the arch kept digging into the side of my foot. That hurt so badly that I had to send them back. I will try another pair without the metal strip on it.

Need to get custom orthotics, use these as an alternative. Have to be careful with shoes, they don't fit in every pair. This is my third pair, the other two have "flattened" out a bit. I use the older two in shoes that are not worn every day. Love the Birkenstock support. Lived in my Birks all last summer.

Having spent a lifetime in the retail shoe business, without foot problems, I was quite concerned when a red bump developed at the primary ball join of my left foot. By reading numerous reviews I decided that the Berk. Blue arch support was worth a try. Initially I felt that the longitudinal arch support was helpful in straightening out the foot but that the metatarsal bump was too high and felt like a lump under my forefoot. After persisting a few days I saw the red ball joint's swelling go down and the pain decrease substantially. Obviously My foot bones needed to realigned. I am most thankful for this product and would highly recommend it for excellent arch support.

Phenomenal if you need arch support! I've had some pain in my right foot ever since pregnancy (fallen arches), which goes away if I wear shoes with proper arch support. These are fantastic! Yesterday I wore them with a pair of tennis shoes that normally trigger my foot pain -- not so anymore. Also they are easily removed and applied to other shoes as needed. If you need proper arch support, you won't be disappointed!

By far the best Arch Support on the market. I have a pair that is over 20 years old! Still going strong. Can be washed in soapy water. Have tried a least a dozen others and they are worthless within months. Slips into all shoes...casual to sport shoes. I like to buy a 1/2 size up to accommodate. Great for Plantar Faciitis issues.

We purchased these for our daughter to put in her school uniform shoes, which don't have much in the way of arch support. She has very flat feet, and she says that these keep her feet from hurting during the day, and are very comfortable. She even asked if she could put them in her volleyball shoes, so she must love them!

These arch supports are fabulous. I've worn them for years, and when my husband developed plantar fasciitis, I bought him some, and the pain disappeared as soon as he put them in his shoes.

I bought these Birkenstock blue footbed arch supports to see if indeed they made my feet feel better. These were the arch supports designed for people with lower arches. These are wonderful! They kind of support my feet so that my feet are balanced and not too much pressure is on any one area of my feet. So, my feet do feel a lot better. I did have to experiment with additional padding as I often couldn't use the insert supplied with the shoe. I have plantar fasciitis, nerve damage and have lost the fat pads which had cushioned the balls of my feet. I have been unable to stand for more than a few minutes without pain. These shoe inserts have helped a lot.

Brands I'd also recommend: birkenstock, and keen

I have recurring problems with my arch (pain.) These have been the best solution for my regular shoes. They fit in most of my covered shoes with no problem (no sizing up.) As hard as they are, they are somehow not uncomfortable but provide the kind of unyielding arch support to stop the pain. I usually wear a size 6 (regular, not wide or narrow) and I wear a 35. For inside the house, I wear regular birkenstocks. They look terrible but, again, cannot be beat for comfort and arch support to stop the pain.

As an over pronator (flat feet) I welcome a good arch support at an affordable price. Birkenstock's arch supports are five star. I will purchase another pair and will look for one with out the blue material on the top; this causes my foot to slide in one pair of snow boots and could cause a corn to form.

I usually wear a 41 in sandals and I needed a 42 in this insert. I am very happy. I change them into whatever boots or shoes I am wearing. The support is great. I do not have heel pain when I am using these.

Approximately ten years ago this exact brand of Arch Support was recommended by my foot doc as a "possible" alternative to surgery. Since then I have purchased and repurchased this product numerous times and have not had a need to return to that doctor. I have a pair parked in every single pair of shoes I own and cannot imagine getting along without them. I was thrilled to discover that I can now purchase these from Zappos which is where I do just about 100% of all shopping except for groceries.

Able to wear these in Gucci suede loafers and Jessica Simpson levee ballet flats without going up in size. Provides necessary arch support. In flats with shallow heel cups, it tended to slip. But overall I am very happy with this purchase. I also purchased the natural Birkenstock half sole which has more of the soft Birkenstock footbed feel. That insole cannot fit into flats and loafers. I wear the natural insole in an pair of Easy Spirit Traveltime slip on mules In both insoles, I am a size 36. I am a size 37 Birkenstock sandal regular width, so I tried the size 37 first and found that it did not fit my arch.

These are great, no squeak! I got these sized by a Pedoritrist, and its the same size as my Birk sandals. He had a wide range of inserts and he said these would be the best. 3 months ago I bought the sport Birkenstock inserts, and those make squeaking sounds and don't fit as well as this one. (Wish I had bought this one first.) So I say buy this, especially if you need a metatarsal arch support like me.
