Memory Foam Insoles
KidSport® (Toddler/Little Kid/Big Kid)
Pinnacle Junior (Little Kid/Big Kid)
I have multiple foot problems (bunions, metatarsalgia, bone spurs, plantar fasciitis & 73 years of running, backpacking etc.) so please take this review with a grain of salt. There may be no perfect insert for me. That said, I don't find them particularly soft or cushioning, especially in the heel and metatarsals, where I really need cushioning. I've had to add a layer of flat Spenco foam to provide that, so for me, they are better than nothing, but not the inserts of my dreams.

I swear by these insoles. Bought them to treat plantar fasciitis. I do overpronate as well. Instant relief!!!!

If you wear Birkenstocks, you appreciate the importance of firm arch support. For other brands of shoes, you can remove the flat factory insole and upgrade to Powerstep insoles. The Pinnacle adds a touch more arch support to the design of the original Powerstep insole. A TINY bit more. I wore an "Original" in my left shoe and a Pinnacle in my right shoe. The Pinnacle arch support was slightly higher and slightly firmer. They are 95% identical but the Pinnacle has a much higher price. If you are happy wearing the original Powerstep you don't need to spend more for the Pinnacle. If you are new to "high arch" insoles, start by wearing Powersteps two hours per day. Your feet will be making an adjustment that can be a bit painful. Every few days add another hour. As your feet adjust to the high arch support, add more hours. In a month, your feet will have fully adjusted and you will never want to go back to flat insoles. There is also a Pinnacle Plus that I have not tried.

These have been a game changer ! Fantastic relief from Morton’s neuroma + supination. Strongly recommend

My son is 18 and works at Dunkin Donuts on the weekends. The other day he was complaining that his back was hurting him after having worked his Saturday and Sunday shifts. Both days he works 9 hours each. His shoes are cheap shoes that are specifically non-slip for this type of flooring so I decided to get him these orthotics to see if that helped. Today is Sunday and he just worked his two, 9 hour days in a row and he says his feet and back feel great. No back pain and he says even his feet and legs don't feel as tired as they did before. So happy with these. They aren't cheap but they are worth it. Hopefully they will last. I do want to mention that my son has very flat feet and he tends to pronate so I was worried that the firm arch support might be uncomfortable for his feet but he assures me they feel great. Also these run true to size.

The comfort and support is definitely there but I ordered the size for a women’s size 11 as all my sneakers are that size although my feet are 10 1/2. I am disappointed as the orthotics are a good 1/2 inch too short and I feel the edge under my toes. I tried them in all my sneakers (10-12 pairs) and it was the same in all of them. I’m debating whether to buy again in a larger size. I have bilateral heel bone spurs and do like the cushioning under my heels.

I would say that these arch supports have more than moderate arch support, but not to the point of excellent or superb arch support. However, in saying that, they do give the arch support that I need, and they are comfortable. They are not the most attractive arch support, however, that is not needed, as they are hidden in my shoes anyways. I am hoping that this second pair of these arch supports, last as long as the first pair have.

LOVE! Initially I bought one pair of these to add to my very worn out UGG slippers. Only the insole was worn so this is a perfect fix. But then I realized that they also improve other shoes that needed some arch support. Cool.

This is my second pair of Powersteps, and they are providing the support and comfort I have come to expect from Pinnacle. It's the heel that had me come back for a second pair. It offers a bit more height than other insoles. Also has stability when walking. The difference is noticable and even though they cost a bit, the quality makes it worth it.

These have become my “go to” inserts. They are very comfortable and very supportive.

Didn’t fit properly

Love these. Have 2 pair. Fit in almost all my shoes that need some support. Comfortable. Easy to use & switch between shoes. Thumbs up!

Bought these Powerstep Pinnacle Maxx inserts because of a pronation issue and have used Powerstep in the past. Very pleased with this insert, how it helped my pronation.

Fit was correct. The price is high.
Kate from Chicago, IL on February 15, 2020
Finally found ALL day comfort! I’m on my feet easily 10 hours a day for work without sitting and have tried a million shoes and insoles.... These are amazing!! I have pretty high arches and like cute boot/shoes so it’s been such a battle... especially when needing to look nice for work. I love that they are slim and can fit in all my ankle boots without being too tight on top. Was nervous about the 3/4 length bc I hate socks, but have never even noticed the “drop off”. Bought these and the super feet ones and these had much better arch support. Getting more!

I popped these into a Sorel 11 size boot and loved the better support. The wool is warm and has decent support for my high arches.

This is not an option to select in the drop down box regarding arches but they are very high. I need to return because they hurt my feet

Wasn't enough support for me.
Shirly on January 29, 2020
These were recommended by my podiatrist. I have extremely high arches but can't afford custom orthotics. These have made a big difference for me in terms of comfort. They are a bit wide so they can't fit in all of my shoes. However, they provide excellent arch support and comfort. Overall, I am happy with these inserts.

Problem: You want to go sockless but your feet sweat and stink. Solution: These inserts. Fit w/o trimming in 10.5 US, both slip-ons and lace-ups.

Good for those who over-pronate and have high arches, which I've read is an unusual combination, but that's me. I thought the firmness might be uncomfortable but it feels nice. The size for women's 7-7 1/2 fit perfectly in a size 7 shoe without trimming at all so I don't think it would be big enough for a size 7 1/2. I'd say they run a little small. Also, overpriced at Zappos so I'll buy the next pair somewhere else.

Great insoles. Great arch support!
Harriette from Huntsville, AL 35802 on December 03, 2019
I prefer the high, firm arch support of Birkenstocks. The Powerstep Original Insole replaces the original insoles in my Born and Clark shoes and provide arch support that is almost as supportive as Birkenstock. Because the front third inside the toe box is thin, they can be trimmed to fit almost any shoe. Folks who are new to high arch support should wear Powersteps just a couple hours a day, and over a few weeks, add an hour a day. After a month, your feet will be fully adjusted and you will want them on your feet all day.
