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!

Brands I'd also recommend: All Birks and New Balance

Limitad sizes 37 to 43 - I'm very satisfied with my inserts. My size in shoes is 41 European and 81/2 USA I bought one set ten years ago and I'm still wearing these. Since then I couldn't find another pair.

Brands I'd also recommend: No other item can replace these.

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 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.

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.

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.

Brands I'd also recommend: Dansko, Mephisto, Orthaheel

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

I have fallen arches and severe overpronation. Having tried many different orthotics over the years, including the very expensive custom ones, these Birkenstock footbeds are the ones that are in every pair of shoes I own.

I was hoping that this arch support insert would make my all-too-flat boots feel like Birkenstocks. They didn't. What they do is add a moderate amount of arch support, making my uncomfortably unsupportive boots quite wearable. The inserts are easy to remove, so using them with different pairs of shoes is easy. I think they're worth the price, but I rated them a 4 because my expectations, fueled by the Birkenstock brand name, were a bit too high.

I fell in love with Birkenstocks, but can not wear them all of the time, so I decided to try the arch supports for my boots and shoes that don't have support in them. They are made like Birkenstocks, the same shape etc. They don't seem to work for me, but I think it may be my foot! One foot feels great, but the other is uncomfortable. It seems as though the support is in the wrong place under my foot. I think if they fit both of my feet they would be wonderful in my boots. It is definitely worth trying if you like Birks!

These have been the only insert I've found so far to give me relief from a painful ball of foot problem. I wear them in low heels and my flats. I was worried they wouldn't fit in my work/dress shoes but they seem to work in about 80% of them. These give excellent arch support and also alleviate the pressure on the ball of my foot. Highly recommended. I only wish they came in other colors so they weren't so obvious when I slip my shoes off.

These soles are great especially for those of us who wear Birks and like the support. They have definitely allowed me to wear shoes that I have had difficulty wearing before. My only complaint is the color- which stands out against darker colored shoes. But, they are well worth the investment!

Plantar Fasciitis - I bought these to see if they would help with my PF. They are similar to the inserts my podiatrist gave me. They aren't as thick as those so they feel better in my shoes. Not as good as regular Birks but only time will tell if they help. Excellent service from Zappos as usual!

Best relief I've found - Suffer from plantar fasciitis, my job requires that I'm in and out of a delivery truck a minimum of 100 times a day (not kidding here), these have given me more relief than anything I've tried to this point for my flat, flat feet. I do wish they had some cushioning though.

I don't get all the glowing reviews. I guess you must love the way Birkenstocks fit to like this insole. The arch support was good and these initially felt promising, but Birkenstocks have this weird bump near the front of the footbed that gets pretty annoying after a while. I used to wear Birkenstocks all the time and don't remember them hurting my feet (granted, that was 15 years ago and before I developed plantar fasciitis). After 1 hour wearing these I couldn't wait to get rid of them. Made my feet ache for hours after wearing them.
