I have a very high arch and wear very expensive orthotics in my running shoes. I've tried many other store brands to try and replicate the orthotic feel at a lower price with no success. I first found the SOLE Softec Ultra's at a running store and can finally say that they provide the same support and comfort as my expensive orthotics. I've purchased 2 pair of these so far and am looking into some of their other styles for all of my other shoes.Read more » « Show less May 31, 2011 by Anonymous

These suck. The arch is way too high if you have a flat arch like me. It feels like it is driving up through your foot and overall they just don't feel like they have a lot of cushion. I love the graphite ones, but couldn't find them so I bought these. I will go back to the graphite insoles. If you have a flat arch, don't buy these.Read more » « Show less July 14, 2010 by Steve M

Amazing - I have had a pair of the ultras going on 2 years now (just bought a new pair). I am a valet and put in probably 10-15 miles a day on concrete. These along with Brooks Adrenaline GTS's have saved my legs. I used to constantly have shin splints wearing only Asics with no insole. I thank SOLE for the awesome product and way to go Zappos for carrying them!
I'd also recommend: none havent found anything like these in this price range

Sole Ultra Softec - Initially, I had high hopes for these insoles as they got good reviews from others. I put them in the oven at 200 degrees for two minutes until the heat indicator changed color. They didn't seem to be as moldable as they let on. They do have a high arch support that took some getting used to but after a few days of straight wear, I got used to the arch support and they actually became comfortable to wear. I still think they are too hard for me. Not enough cushion.

I have been using Sole Softec Ultra insoles for many years and love them! I have totally flat feet and these allow me to get through my day without pain!
I'd also recommend: Saucony archloch pro/grid stabil CS2, amazing all day comfort for over pronaters!

Superb! I wish I's discovered these Sole insoles a whole lot of money ago. I have just received them in two varieties and the Flips, and my feet are already singing their praises. I have recently discovered the reason for my foot pain is a progressive non-diabetic form of peripheral neuropathy. Several pedorthists have told me I have higher than normal arches, and that almost no shoes that come off the shelf would evenly distribute my weight enough to help the ball-of-foot pains. The area that hurts the most. So I've gone through about 30 pairs of insoles, inserts, arch supports, shoes, and tried them all in various combination. Only the Finn Comfort Finnamics have even come close to providing the comfort these Sole Ultras do, when matched with proper shoes, preferably rocker sole shoes, as they center the weight back off the balls of the feet. I'll probably update this review after wearing them a while, but as of now I haven't even heat-molded them. Didn't want to chance lowering the arch. Right now I'm a really happy camper, er, walker.
