I have purchased these several times. I have foot problems; the balls of my feet hurt without these insoles and I have the type of feet where they like to slide forward whenever I walk. These are the most comfortable insoles and they last a really long time. I completely recommend them five stars overall for comfort and style :)

Initially comfortable, but the yellow foam began to disintegrate after a week. I would expect more than a weeks use before they fall apart.

These are great insoles. I have a bad case of Plantar fascitis and it is one of the few things that give me great comfort. I wear a 6.5 but found the 5-6 to fit me perfectly.

I dance barefoot on hardwood floors and developed tendinitis in my right foot. The pain is indescribable. I got these and wore them in jazz dance shoes (which have no arch support) and the arch support and low heel lift were all I needed. I just danced all weekend (two hours in a stretch) and I have minor soreness and no foot pain. They are really so fantastic that I am ordering two more.

I discovered these about 5 years ago and I can honestly say they are the best thing that ever happened to my feet. This pair is for my husband and he totally agrees me. I have 4 pairs of them for myself.

I love these inserts and have not been able to find them in the store that I used to buy them, so did a search for them online. Found them through Zappos. Their service was quick and quality. Thank you, Zappos!

I have 2 pairs of this style and I love them. I buy larger size shoes to accommodate the Spenco inserts. Great for older feet that need more cushioning. They last forever too. You can wash them in the washing machine.

My podiatrist recommended I get these insoles for my plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis. They provide excellent support and fit very nicely into a variety of shoes. They are comfortable for walking and long bouts of standing.

This is an excellent product which is sometimes difficult to find in stores. I rely on this product to keep from getting backaches. So, I was really happy to find them at Zappos. Zappos' customer service and delivery time was flawless. Also, their price was perhaps a tad lower than I have paid in the past at brick and mortar stores. 10 thumbs up.

Brands I'd also recommend: There's no substitute. This only.

Unfortunately I only wore them one time. I was on a 5 mile hike and came back with horrible blisters. Big waste of money on these! I would have given 0 stars if I could.

Love these, made a huge difference in my NB walking shoes after I pulled out the NB insole and replaced with this. These are a little hard to trim at the arch, but I got it done.

These inserts make a world of difference. They incredibly comfortable and provide more cushioning than you would expect. They are a marked improvement on nearly any insole that comes with a shoe. I just wish they had an insole designed to limit overpronation, like the Orthaheel.

Excellent insoles, they work well and I've tried many that cost more. I really wish they would make these in more sizes! I'm right between two sizes and as much as I love them I'd jump at the chance to get something as good that perfectly fits my shoes. One caveat is that the green liner on top does start to peel away after a year or two of use. I have sent them back to the company and they send out a new set, so I respect them for backing up their product.

I ordered these insoles for my stepmother at the recommendation of her chiropractor. Using the old insole from her shoe as a guide, the Spenco insole was easy to trim to fit. My stepmom wore them all day with no discomfort. She loves them! Her chiropractor is on his feet all day and wears nothing but the Spenco Cross Trainer Insole. Service through Zappos.com is excellent as well.

Since no product is going to alleviate my foot pain, surgery sure didn't, I just looked for the thickest, densest insert that would fit in my shoe. This is as good as I could find and seems to have replaced the hiker model. They appear equally dense and don't seem to pack out readily.,

I purchased these insoles to try and achieve the comfort level I have when wearing my Easy Spirit Anti-Gravity "Getup and Go" shoes which are no longer available. I have nerve pain in my left foot from a stroke. Unfortunately these insoles made no difference at all. They are probably fine for someone who doesn't have diabetic nerve pain or nerve pain such as I have from stroke. I had to break down and buy a different style Anti-Gravity shoe with the nitrogen filled bubbles. I'm waiting for them to arrive.

Alas, these insoles did not help bring comfort to my feet. They are easy to work with and very reasonably priced. I'm glad I tried them.

Thin floppy foam with slick spandex fabric on top. Not what I needed - not much support, just a thin cushion.

I have hypermobility and thus very flexible feet, so I've been having trouble with arch pain, heel pain, and ball of foot pain (sesamoiditis). My arches are pretty low and I have Morton's toe (short big toe, bulges a little to the side). In the hopes of avoiding $400 custom insoles, I ordered five pairs of orthotic inserts to compare at once. I specifically needed metatarsal support in addition to arch support and cushioning. Previously tried inserts included the green Superfeet (horribly hard on my arches), Powerstep original (ok, no cushioning in ball of foot), and Prothotics Motion Control (great in my hiking boots, too thick otherwise). -Vionic Orthaheel Oh Shock Absorber This insert had a moderately high arch--ok, but a little high for me. Some support for the metatarsals but it comes in at a weird angle. -Vionic Orthaheel Dress Slim fit I chose this insert for a dress shoe, but the ball of foot pad conflicted with an existing pad in the dress shoes. Otherwise, good arch support and ball of foot cushioning. -Spenco Polysorb Crosstrainer (recommended by my Podiatrist) The heel cushion in these was so thick that I couldn't get my foot into the shoe securely--even in my tennis shoes, my heel was far too high in the shoe and kept sliding out, even with the laces tied tightly. -Spenco Total Support for Her I decided to go with these, but the pair that Zappos sent was dirty, as though someone had clearly worn them with filthy feet. Thankfully Zappos is exchanging, but this is kinda lame. I chose these because of the low, firm arch support and cushioning in the forefoot. There is a metatarsal pad, but it's not huge so I don't notice it. One question is whether it allows my big toe to flex enough during walking. When I make a conscious effort at it, it's better--maybe have to break them in a little? -Aetrex Lynco Casual Women's 625 (from Amazon since Zappos doesn't carry this) The metatarsal support in these was so high that I felt like I was walking on an egg. Something about the material didn't give enough and was causing nerve pain in my arch.

My podiatrist recommended these insoles for various different issues with my feet. Unfortunately, even though I ordered within my size range, the insert would not fit into any of my shoes. Even with roomy toe boxes, they were just too long. They seem to be a sturdy product, but I'll have to send them back.
