Arch Supports - I had foot surgery in September, 2006 and will have surgery on my other foot some time this year and my doctor insisted I purchased special inserts at $490.00. Needless to say my health insurance did not cover a single penny of that price and if I did not get the inserts, the surgery would be for naught. I found the Birkenstock Supports by happenstance and I have been wearing them since they arrived. I plan on my doctor seeing these inserts and I hope he approves, he does recommend and sell Birkenstock shoes to his patients.

Birkenstock's Blue Footbed Arch Support - This is an excellent product. Due to recent nail bed fungus problems, I've had to start wearing thinner socks than before. Having to discontinue the thicker socks resulted in inadequate support by the one pair of arch supports you had previously supplied to me, and recurrence of pain on walking. Therefore I installed the additional pair that you recently sent ON TOP of the old ones. This has worked well, and now I can walk without pain. In other words -- I now wear TWO PAIRS of the arch supports, one on top of the other.

The shoe-related best purchase I've ever made - I love, love, love these! They've made every pair of shoes I owned a million times more comfortable. And they fit nicely into some very unexpected shoes. Highly recommended!!

Insoles allow freedom of choice in shoes - I use these in my high heeled boots! They work fine, even though the heels are higher than 1 inch (about 1 3/4"). I do think, however, that I may be molding them so that they will no longer work in flat shoes. That's ok with me; the comfort is worth it and I can always buy another pair of insoles if that happens. Some of my shoes were too tight after adding the insoles, but they may improve as they stretch a bit. For people with wide feet or a high instep, I would recommend buying shoes a little bigger to accommodate the insole.

Definitely Birkenstock - In my use of Birkenstock footwear, I have purchased several. I enjoy these inserts; just wish they had more arch support. They definitely make my feet feel better, but the price could be better.

Very comfortable - These supports are just like wearing Birks. I was skeptical and delayed getting them, but my feet keep hurting more and more. I finally purchased them and use them almost exclusively. However, I still have some mid-foot pain especially after a long day. I'm a nurse, work 10 hr shifts. They keep my plantar fasciaitus at bay, but I apparently have some other arch problem.

Arch supports - These are the best arch supports I have ever used. I have very high arches and I cannot wear very many shoes due to the poor arch support. With Birkenstock's Blue Footbed Arch Support I can now wear any shoes, including sandals, and have all day comfort.

Birkenstock for REAL arch support and foot comfort! I have four pairs of these arch supports that are always in my most-worn sport and casual shoes. They are BETTER than my expensive custom arch supports! I can get the benefit of comprehensive arch support in all of my shoes, thanks to Birkenstock!

As good as you want it to be - These fit perfectly into my other shoes and make up the difference in fit. It's great to be able to turn all my flimsy shoes into Birks because shoes that fit which I can wear to work are almost impossible to come by.

Birkenstock Orthotics - I have tried several "over the counter" orthotics, as well as custom-made "prescription" orthotics (very expensive), and NOTHING has worked as well for me as the Birkenstock foot bed. I wear them in my tennis shoes and they make a huge difference in how my feet, legs and back feel. I've been wearing them for at least 5 years now. I highly recommend them!

Thank goodness I can get arch supports like these that really have firm arch support that doesn't just squish away as I walk. They fit most casual shoes.

Arch support - Love it - I suffered from heel spurs and only Birkenstock shoes were what I could wear (read-ugly shoes) Now I can wear the pretty shoes without pain. My arches are extremely high and feet wide. I ordered a narrow and they are great. My sister even ordered a pair after trying mine!

Versatile - If you slide these little wonders under the lining of your tennis shoes, I've been able to cross train again without the lip of the insole bothering your foot. My Ortho-doc has endorsed these and sent his other patients to the Birk arena. As an ER RN, 12 hrs is a LONG time to run and I've sworn by my BIRKS since 1977!

I've had a couple of pair of these for years. One was purchased to put in a pair of steel-toed work boots that I spent 8 hrs. a day on concrete floors in!!! They helped enormously to keep my legs from feeling like lead weights by the end of the day. Still, the first thing I put on when I got home was my regular Birkie sandals. Then my legs felt human again! I have since put them in my hiking boots & again they're doing a great job! Wouldn't be without them for non-Birkenstock shoes!!!

Very nice - I am really enjoying the support of the Birkenstock Footbed Arch. Currently I am suffering from Plantar Fasciitis, but the arch is making it possible for me to still look like a professional at work. It also makes my most casual flats more comfortable.

Birkenstock Arch - not as supportive as other insoles, as the material is flexible... a very good arch for those who are more accustomed to a softer arch

Highly recomended - My foot doctor rated these second only to custom made orthotics, my first pair held up for two or three years at least--ended my feet problems.

Best orthodics ever! I have had custom orthodics for years due to heel pain. They helped relieve the heel pain, but were never very comfortable. I tried the Birkenstocks a year ago, this is my second set. They are very comfortable, support your heel, arch and metatarsal support. These make all my shoes feel great and I can stand on my feet and walk around much longer then before without my feet hurting.

I own several types of insoles. The Birks are much like my orthotics except. Slightly wider. As others have mentioned. The upward lip towards the front of foot is uncomfortable in many of my shoes. Strangely enough, in a few of my sneakers it's comfy for 1/2 a day. Then I have to switch insoles.

I really wanted to use them in my flats, but they were too long, even though I ordered them in my size. They give great arch support, but my heels were slipping out of flats when I walked. They were also too stiff to be comfortable. Sent them back.

This is a great insole for my Ugg boots (put on top of the fleece footbed and wear a thin sock). The arch support helps my plantar fasciitis and falling arches. I found they run wide but the narrow size fits perfectly. I was worried about feeling the edge of the insole in the middle of my foot but it is very comfortable. It is not as supportive as a shoe made with great arch support though. Dansko Professional, OrthaHeel Walker and Mephisto Helen are my 3 favorites for painful feet.

They work well in his work boots, work shoes, and Church shoes. They would probably work in tennis shoes.
