These inserts are very good. I have Plantar Fasciitis and these inserts really help me. They give excellent arch support. Because I have such high arches I have not had to heat them to fit my foot. They are good for me out of the box. I can not comment on how they will fit you if you need to heat them. I have maybe 8 +/- pairs of this insert. I also have 4 or 5 pairs of the Softec Ultra insert. It's thicker and works well in heavy boots. All of the Sole inserts have lasted years with minimal degradation. Be sure that what you buy has a removable insert that can be replaced.

Personally, I can tell absolutely no difference in the feel of these insoles from before to after the heating process. I tried the process twice. I have fairly high arches but the arch of the insole feels too hard, too high and too far back toward the heel. Yes, I ordered correct size and made sure the length was right for the shoe. I have since tried two other brands of heat moldable insoles with much better results. Montrail's Enduro-Soles are good but are only comfortable for me in a well cushioned shoe like a running shoe. They do elevate the heel a bit so they may not work well in lower ankle cut styles. (works well in my Asics Gel Aztec). The other insole I've just started using is the Sofsole Brand, which actually look very similar to these Sole insoles. The heating and break-in process produces a better result in my opinion and they have a slightly softer, less rigid feel to them. The heel is not a elevated as the Montrails but the forefoot has slightly less lateral flex, which is better for my plantar-fasciitis symptoms. Not trying to steer anyone away from the Sole insoles but this is just my experience. Your results may certainly vary. Good luck.

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.

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 been using Powerstep by Pinnacle Insoles for a few years, these were so hard and hurt my feet, no cushion at all! I will stick with the powerstep and highly recommend those if you like a cushioned insole. These hurt!

I bought these for my son years ago and he swears by them. He is a long distance runner and they make a huge difference. He would never use the inserts that come in running shoes; these give much more support and form to the foot bed.
