These are great! Another review really caught my eye - the customer said this fit better than any number of custom-made orthotics over the years. That really rang a bell with me because my custom orthotics and running-store fitted shoes did not work fully well for me. (They made my feet feel good, but my hips were always tightening up, which hurt my arthritis.) I was really torn about going through that process again. My feet got very tired going without, however. I got these and my feet do not get tired anymore! And as I can put them in a flatter shoe, my alignment is better now and I'm not having the other pain issues. From experience, these are 1,000 times better than the drugstore brands. If you need good arch support (and you know who you are if you need it), I think it's a fairly small investment to try them out, especially with the return policy. Finally, I have a narrow foot and the narrow width is very comfortable to me. Enjoy!

I would recommend the arch support by Birkenstock. Although a little expensive they last a long time and I wear mine every day.

Love these. I needed something that would fit in my flats for work. They fit well all my flats and provide great support. It's really helped ease foot pain.

Absolutely amazing. The 3/4 length means that these supports fit in my Converse All-Stars -- which I dearly love but which have no arch support whatsoever and are too shallow in the toe box to allow a full-length insert. Note that these are not soft inserts; they are hard, like the footbed of a Birkenstock shoe. That might sound uncomfortable, but it's never bothered me at all (possibly because I have and love a couple pairs of Birks already); I'd rather have real arch support than a soft footbed.

These inserts have changed my life! (Okay, my wardrobe at least.) Before I found these, I thought I'd have to give up on cute flats forever, and be doomed to wear clunkier, more supportive shoes with my skinny jeans and cute work outfits. Now I can wear all the ballet flats I'd pushed to the back of the closet, and even stand in them all day long without foot pain the next day, or an aggravated knee. They also stay in place while walking, and don't need to be velcro-ed down to the soles of my shoes. While I haven't found a pair of flats they don't fit into, they are a bit wide, which means I can sometimes see the blue peeking out from below my narrow feet, so it would be great if these came in a neutral color, but that's a small price to pay for comfort and wardrobe options!

These have proven a superb investment; I can insert them easily (and quickly) in almost any pair of shoes with a back for increased support and comfort. I don't wear orthotics, but do walk a lot -- daily & my arches are low. These are fab!

Love, love, love this product. I have had a problem with heel spurs in the past. Nothing helped. Went through Cortisone shots, and even considered surgery. Then a savvy Podiatrist recommended I stop all the other stuff and get a pair of these inserts for my sneakers. He warned me they would be uncomfortable for a while until they molded to my feet, but would over a short amount of time relieve the problem of the heel spurs. In 3 months the problem was gone and I have been using them since. (At least 10 years.) No more problems with heel spurs. Hurray! I jumped for joy when I saw that Zappos had them for sale. I moved to a new town and could no longer find a local source for them.

Love these too! I use them for every shoe, Toms, Vans, oxford flats, boots even my Cole Haan flats. Great if I am going for long(ish) walks/treks like around the Las Vegas Strip, Disneyland, San Fran etc and I want to look stylish for the photos. I am a young female and I refuse to wear ugly shoes so these help out tremendously! Im never going back to being uncomfortable. I have ankle instability and flat feet, this coupled with my physical therapy has worked wonders. Every shoe feels great. If you want to wear a stylish shoe though make sure it either expands to shove these in there or get a bigger size. I don't have to sacrifice comfort for fashion. Can have my cake and eat it too!

I've used these for several years. They hold up well, but to be expected, start looking bad. I replace periodically, and these were the replacement. These are a good, inexpensive alternative to custom made inserts, and work well for me. I ordered from Zappos and received the next day. Incredible service.

What a great company to shop with. Great products even hard to find items like Birkenstock insoles, and free shipping. Excellent return policy and you can\'t get mugged in the parking lot. I will continue to get my Birky insoles from Zappos, and I love my Naot sandels too.

I've recently become plagued with plantar fasciitis. I had tried another brand of expensive gel type orthotics made in Germany.They were terrible.They balled up when trying to put my foot in my shoe and I couldn't slide my foot in and out of the shoe. I saw these Birkenstock supports, tried them, and I LOVE them. They're small, sturdy, slide right in my shoe (I use them in athletic shoes, currently), and are SUPER comfortable! They've made a huge difference for me. I can walk all over the place without my foot hurting. They're the closest thing I've found to doctor-prescribed orthotics, only much cheaper.

Great Arch Support - These babies are great to slip into a walking shoe or sneaker for additional support-especially when you are pounding the pavement! The wide width is very comfortable.

Buy these if you have plantar fasciitis - it's certainly worth the effort and expense, particularly if you have been battling the frustrating problem for months and already spent a ton of money. It's been close to a year for me, and I've visited podiatrists, orthopedists, and physical therapists. I ordered these out of desperation, and though it's early, with these insoles and a boot at night (bulky and uncomfortable, but helping the problem), I'm finally getting some relief. I give them 5 stars except for style. I don't know that you can have "style" with orthotics.

GREAT inserts! These are the second pair of arch supports I've ordered like this. I have flat feet and these are very supportive and can be used in many of my shoes. The only reason I gave a 4 for looks was because of the blue color. I would have preferred a more neutral color. All in all, the best "Over the Counter" orthotics you can buy.

LOVE MY BIRKENSTOCKS FOOTBEDS - I can't wear the Birkenstock clogs that I love to work due to uniform constraints. These inserts fit right into my loafers and I get the same comfort as when I wear my Birks. This is a great idea for those of us that can't live without our Birks but can't wear them to work.

Brands I'd also recommend: Any other birkenstock products that Zappos offers!

Don't expect them to feel like Birkenstocks - I ordered these given the glowing reviews. I have VERY flat feet and expected these to be similar to my Birks. Not at all, the arch is pretty low, the molding in general is good but don't expect good arch support. Even ordered a size bigger to see if that was the problem and finally gave up.

I have very bad plantar fasciitis in the left foot and a friend of mine told me about these inserts. WOW! Never paid that much for an orthotic, but decided it was worth it if it worked. I am extremely pleased with these shoe inserts. It has eased the pain tremendously. Now, I feel there is hope for this tendon to mend.

Birkenstock Blue Footbed Arch Support - I always thought that I had a problem with my arch, it turns out that having the correct heel support improves my ability to walk and work on my feet. I must have at least 35 different arch insoles in my closet; none work as good as Birkenstocks insoles (including two "made to measure" $400.00+ insoles). Thanks Birkenstock for your excellent product!!!

Wonderful arch support - I've worn custom-made orthotics and several over-the-counter inserts etc. and have always had foot problems/discomfort. Henceforth, the Birkenstock have been the very best. The narrow-width seems to be a huge plus for my foot type and they don't take up as much room in the shoe toe-box. Very impressive insert. I'm thrilled to find them at Zappos,

Blue footbed heeled - Zappos does not offer a full size range in this product, BUT it is the single most wonderful thing I have ever worn next to custom cowboy boots. This foot bed prevents your foot from sliding forward due to lack of arch support and I have four pairs of the style for heels since I only wear one heel height. It works in shoes that are worn, and in new shoes. I found it comfortable in pumps and in my wedges. Nice light blue color of anti-microbial silk does not always blend into skin or shoe interior color.

Brands I'd also recommend: Think! Bee lasted shoes have a double insole that takes up extra depth when they stretch out

Birkenstock Arch Support - I purchased this arch support for my husband. He has several pairs of them for his shoes. He finds they make his shoes much more comfortable and gives him the support he requires. He has even gotten his mother using them in her shoes and she too is very pleased with the comfort and support they have given her, she has very wide feet. So, if you are looking for a little extra support and comfort, I wouldn't hesitate in purchasing these.
