I have very high arches and a particularly severe flare-up of plantar fasciitis right now. The Sole Softec Ultra provides great arch support and cradles my heels well. These really need to be used in shoes where you can take out the original insoles. These work great in my Saucony running shoes but they raise my heel up enough in my New Balance cross-trainers, even with the original insoles removed, that the shoes slip up and down on my heel.

These are great. My son has flat feet and has to wear insoles in all of his shoes. He plays competitive soccer and the shoes he likes to wear are really narrow. These are the only over the counter insoles with the right amount of support that will fit in the shoes. We have to cut them down just a bit but he loves them. No more foot and ankle pain.

I've been using Sole inserts/orthotics for more than a decade. You can either mold them to your foot by wearing them for a few days or by heating them as directed, putting them in your shoes and standing in them for two minutes. For me, the longer I use these the more comfortable they become. It's a disappointment when I finally wear out a set because by then they feel so natural you hate to part with them.

These insoles have the most arch support and cushioning than any other insole I've tried thus far. I initially bought the Superfeet orange insoles for a pair of hiking boots to replace the poor support of the Ortholite insoles that came with them. Although Superfeet make a great product, my feet never really adjusted to the support, cushion, and overall feel of the insole. I ended up returning the Superfeet and replaced them with these insoles - it's literally night and day between the two. Instead of my feet adjusting to an insole, the insole adjusted to my feet. I ended up baking my Soles to get a true custom fit and have not had any issues whatsoever. I've hiked miles and miles with these insoles and my feet no longer ache due to insufficient arch support and cushioning. So much so that I've been wearing my hiking boots everyday since they're that comfortable. I ended picking up a pair of the red DK Sole Response insoles for my lower volume shoes. I also like the fact these have permanent odor control manufactured into them. Definitely recommend Soles!

Wanted more arch support and heard that this product conforms to your foot. I warmed the Sole as instructed and wore it with a hiking shoe for a couple of weeks. Was not able to get it to conform to my feet. I also needed something with more cushion. I was not able to return since I had warmed the sole to try to get it to fit.

I do not have arch issues (I actually have very good arches), but I actually have a different and overall worse set of problems. I have low volume feet and weak foot structure, causing my ankle to collapse downward upon impact each step. This results in knee pain, poor balance, etc. I have custom orthotics that correct this by providing angle and structure that my foot does not have. However, those custom orthotics do not work well in all shoes. For example, in my dress shoes, I get a lot of heel slippage. I have two pairs of these sole insoles. They are relatively thick, so they help to fill the shoes I put them in. Since I have low-volume feet, I generally have a lot of space leftover in all of my shoes. The support these insoles provide is great. I use them in running shoes and dress shoes. If you have higher volume feet, I may hesitate from buying these, as it may add too much volume to your shoe. Sole sells thinner insoles which should work if these do not. To sum up, here are the pros: - great support - can be heat molded (but do not have to be) - can be trimmed easily with scissors to fit a particular shoe - much less expensive than custom orthotics - add to the volume of the shoe, which is useful for people with low-volume feet (potentially a con) Honestly I do not really have any cons. If you are like me and need some kind of support in shoes, and your orthotics do not fit or work in though shoes for any reason, try these out.

I've worn Sole insoles for about ten years and have been very satisfied with the quality and durability. I am now on my second set of casual insoles. The top liner on the first pair came unglued within two weeks. I exchanged the pair for a second set, and had the same thing happen. As always, Zappos customer service has been outstanding.

Perfect for indoor soccer shoes and low profile sports shoes. Worth the money. I bought them for my 13 year old son (wears size 11 shoe) as he complained the normal insoles made the shoes to small and hurt his feet...these were the perfect answer. Do be aware...you have to cut them to match the shoe size so save the old insole to use as a "pattern."

Sole Softec are the best orthotics that I have ever used. After heating them for a few minutes you put them into your shoes and stand still for a minute or two. This causes the Sole Softec orthotic to conform perfectly to your footbed.

I bought these to put in my ski boots - most of them come with thin, flat, dreadful insoles. They achieved all the goals I was hoping for: better heel support (cupping), better arch support (I over-pronate), and it lifted the heel half an inch or so. The last part is especially useful if your ski boots are tight, as they pull the whole foot backwards and give more room to the toes in the front. I did follow the instructions and "baked" these a few minutes in the oven, but I cannot say if it had any difference. All in all, I liked these better than the Superfeet, with better arch support and the ability for a bit of heat custom molding.

SOLE insoles are simply the best. I now hate to wear shoes or boots that don't accommodate them. I like their thicker ones for hiking boots and the thinner ones for dress shoes. If you have high arches, you need SOLEs!

The SOLE Softec Ultra insoles provide excellent arch support. I have low arches and prefer strong/aggressive arch support. These fit perfectly in my walking shoes and feel great. They're even better than the very costly custom-made orthotics I got from a podiatrist. The arch support in these insoles is comparable that provided by Orthaheel's Tide flip-flops. Best of all, my plantar fasciitis is nearly gone. I didn't need to modify this pair, but the moldable feature is a plus. I highly recommend SOLE insoles and plan to buy more! Thank you, Zappos!

Great product! If your shoes allow for the depth of these inserts you will be pleased. My flat feet appreciate the arc support and the foam used in the base is a good rebounding material. I tried just one to see how they would work for me and then ordered three more for my shoes - from hiking boots to tennis shoes and loafers.

I have worn custom made orthopedic inserts for 10 yrs because of plantar fasciitis and a Morton's neuroma. Decided to try these to see if they came close and also because reviews were so good. I removed the insert that goes with a pair of Comfortview loafers and inserted this SOLE one instead. Perfect fit-- tough to get in actually because the fit was so tight. Since my feet are naturally 'hot' I decided to wear the inserts without going through the oven routine. Worked pretty good. I was on and off my feet for about 4 hours. (VERY glad to put my Orthaheel Tide Sandals back on when I got home,though! Best foot bed made for arch support) This insert worked for me to get by on. Nothing like a custom made one, but I'm hoping they will continue to mold to my arch.

Amazing inserts! Would you believe Zappos.com and these inserts in particular were recommended by my podiatrist! The larger size was purchased for my tennis shoes; now I'm going to purchase a smaller pair for my dress shoes. The process used to shape them to your feet is amazing. Well worth the money!

I have plantar fasciitis and the sole inserts were like a breath of fresh air for my feet. I can walk without hobbling again. Thanks, Zappos.

I've been wearing these inserts since an athletic trainer recommended them five years ago when I had a bad case of shin splints. Now I replace them every time I buy new running shoes (every 300 miles). I know they seem pricey, but they are well worth it to save your feet. Once you compare these to the flimsy insoles that come in your shoes, you'll be angry at the shoe manufacturer. These have great cushion and great support. I'm a 50-year-old woman and regular runner and I have no physical issues, which I attribute to buying quality gear. I would say the arch support is very firm, which I like, but my husband had a little difficulty adjusting to them. It's definitely a good idea to put them in your shoes and wear them around the house to break them in before going running for the first time.

The best insoles you can get! I've tried insoles from various other brands with varying success. They have all had at least one flaw that has lead me to try another brand. I work 12hr shifts in an industrial facility on hard brick and concrete floors so these insoles get a workout. Not once since I tried these insoles have I come home with my feet aching like I used to in the past. I have a bone spur and suffer from plantar fasciitis. Since wearing these my symptoms have gone away and I have absolutely no pain anymore. I now have a pair of these in almost every pair of shoes I own and I couldn't be happier. It is so nice to go hiking, or walking around all day and not have to worry about my feet hurting anymore. Also these insoles hold up very well. They have lasted me at least twice as long as any of my previous insoles. I literally can not say enough good things about these insoles.

I have very high arches, wide toes, and narrow heels. These insoles are comfortable and supportive for my "Birkenstock-shaped" feet. They provide more arch support and softer, more comfortable heels than Superfeet.

Having plantar fasciitis these insoles help tremendously. Although I purchased this particular insole for my rain boots as one previous customer recommended they were best for boots. She was right! Too thick for shoes. Very satisfied.

I've tried other brands but these work! They molded to my feet. My right foot has never felt comfortable before. It was super fun putting them in the oven and then putting the warm insoles into my shoes. No two feet are the same! Thank you Zappos for carrying this brand! I just purchased 2 more pairs.
