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.

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!

Decent arch support - These are pretty good. Not as great as my prescribed arches (that I lost), but they come close. Worth it for the price.

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.

The quality construction and material I expect from Birkenstock is here, but this is not at all like the contour of the sandals we all know and love. There is no arch support, this is basically just a "tub" for your foot.

I am returning these. Initially they felt good, but if you prefer full length insoles these will bug you. They just were not the right shape for my foot.

I purchased the unit with the intention to help alleviate arch pains I was having. However, I wore it for a day and found it to be very hard on my feet and might have contributed to other pains felt during the day. I have not worn it since then, due to purchasing another insert which works great. I also purchased a pair of top of the line New Balance which I have not worn and will wear it when I wear the new sneakers.
