I had a Dr tell me to try these over going with a full blown orthodic. I had a ton of foot pain as I do commercail sales and I am always on my feet. These little puppies made a huge difference in the amount of foot pain after a long day. I have also tried the Superfeet as well and those worked great as well. I refuse to wear a pair of shoes that I cannot put either in.

The insoles have really helped my plantar fascitis. As good as the expensive ones.

The Powersteps are working for me. My daughter and some of her Yoga and running friends recommended them. My podiatrist said it was the exact one he would have had me get.

Have used these ever since having a stress fracture last summer. Provides arch support and more structure. No need for custom orthodics.

Arch support is fantastic, but they aren't cushy at all. I'll keep 'em and use them in my old tennis shoes.

These insoles may be the answer to my problems. I overpronate and need moderate arch support and it is almost impossible to find shoes that are attractive and comfortable. The shoes I have to buy are expensive and sadly my toes make indentations in the shoe beds within a few months making them uncomfortable to wear before long. The outside of the shoes are still in good condition, but the shoe beds seem to wear out quickly and you cannot buy replacements from the shoe manufacturer. I bought a pair of Gel Asics which had a squishy very comfortable foot bed that I really liked but the arch support was not enough. I removed the footbed that came with the shoe and replaced with these and I was able to keep the new shoes and walk long distances in them. I do wish the heel and toe area of the powerstep inserts were squishier, but the arch support is great. When I put my shoes on I can feel the hard arch but within 3-5 minutes, I am no longer aware of it. So if you haven't tried them before, wear them for a little while before you decide they aren't comfortable. I had also purchased the Powerstep Pinnacle which has even higher arch support, but I am not sure I need that much. I ordered them in a half size larger and would have to cut them to fit in my shoes, so can't really try them out to know. Since buying inserts is new to me, I am going to buy multiple brands of inserts now to try them in my older shoes that I would like to continue to wear. I hope I find something that is very soft, but supportive through the arch. I bought some Spenco 3/4 length inserts in college for my dress shoes, but they don't seem make them the same way any more. As noted above, if you wear a half size shoe, make sure you try the size below or you will have to trim the inserts.

My entire life I've had horrendous pain in my feet because I have flat feet. I went to the podiatrist and she recommended that I purchase these insoles instead of have custom made insoles that would run hundreds of dollars. So I purchased these insoles back in October 2013. The first day I wore them I had a lot of discomfort in my feet. It felt like I had ball placed under my arch and I was trying to squish it. This made the rest of my feet sore. I didn't realize that I had to get used to them first. After the first day, my feet began to get used to them and about a week later it felt like my feet were stepping on clouds. It felt very comfortable and painless. I stand on my feet all day at work so these insoles made work less painful. I also jog everyday so I used the same insoles in my gym shoes. My feet did not slip at all while I worked out. They fit perfectly in my gym shoes. Then I decided to wear them in my slippers to see how they felt without socks. It too was wonderful. So I wore them all the time with all my shoes. My mistake was not realizing that this made them wear out faster. The pain came roaring back at the beginning of January 2014. I just ordered another pair. If you purchase these, just remember that the more you use them the faster they wear out. To prevent this, I'm ordering 2 more, one for work and the other for my workout.

Very comfortable and not bulky. I use it inside boots and walking shoes. I did not need to trim to size. I have a bunion, Morton's neuroma and an arthritic knee. I stand on my feet all day at work. These make my feet comfortable in dress boots and during exercise.

This is a great product! It was recommended to me by my sports medicine doctor after I began having pain in the joint of my large toe. I am a runner and work in a hospital setting so I am on my feet all the time. I have rather flat feet and I wear these in my work shoes everyday and find that they give me just the right amount of support with out making my feet ache or cramping my shoes. They do take a few days to break in, I had to keep my laces a little looser than normal for about three days. Once they shape to you and your shoe you will never know they are there! I will not wear another pair of work shoes without these inserts!

These inserts are amazing. They are the same ones sold at podiatrist's offices, at least they certainly seem to be and are the same quality. I love these and they really help with my plantar fasciitis which always seems to flare up in the winter. I could not live without these inserts that support my arches and cushion my heels. I have been looking for these for a long time and Zappos is the first retailer I have found who carries them. Go Zappos!

At the time I ordered these inserts, I also ordered the Superfeet and New Balance inserts. The Powerstep inserts were the ones I kept, but it was a close call -- probably an individual preference. They are a softer alternative to my custom inserts.

Much better than the ordinary insoles I was wearing. I think they will extend the life of some athletic shoes I own and that were stretched out. These insoles are too thick for dressy, leather business shoes, in my opinion. One would have to buy something more specialized. These are a good buy for those who want to "upgrade" but don't want to go into custom fitted orthotics.

I read others reviews and thought I would give these a try knowing if I did not like them Zappos will let me return them. I have used a few other brands, gel soles no real difference. I am on my feet 10 to 16 hrs a day with work and hikeing with my dogs. I am shocked, these have made my feet feel like I can still keep going after 16 hours.

This is my second pair of Powersteps. I use them to replace the insoles in all my running shoes. I pull out the original inserts and use these. With these I have much fewer knee problems.

I bought these inserts for my son, who has extremely flat feet. After only a day or so he said he noticed a big difference in how his knees & legs felt. Hopefully they will prevent other knee & foot problems later on.

Loved the Zappos unbeatable quick service. These same orthotics worked out great for my husband's planter faciatitis. However these did not work out for me. One foot in particular was not supported enough. Later found out that I have PTTD which requires a foot-ankle brace instead of an orthotic. Sadly, I had to return them.

These were okay but not really working for my foot issues. I have neuroma and basically just sore tired feet. These did not have enough cushion for my issues. However, the arch support did seem quite good.

I bought this along with the active Orthoheel insert to compare them. After getting my feet used to them for a few days, I went for a hike with these. My feet were killing me by the time I finished. I did the same with the Orthoheels the next week and they didn't hurt near as much. I think these are okay for everyday use, but not for heavy walking. Maybe if it had just a little more arch support.

It doesn't fit into any of my shoes ... all my shoes are 6.5. I thought a 6.5 of this insert would work. I guess not. If i get a size down to 6 of the insert, it is not going to fit my feet. A 6.5 of the insert probably will fit into size 7 shoes. Then i have to buy all my shoes size 7? This is a waste of money.
