These are very supportive and do wonders for sore arches. They do however take up too much room in shoes and cause your ankle to no longer sit in the heel box and cause the shoe to put extra pressure from laces on the top of your foot. I’ve switched to superfeet and haven’t looked back.

The fit was excellent in my sneakers and I tried to wear them but they don't line up with my arches and they really hurt. I wore them for a few hours and I put up with them thinking it would get better. The next day Couldn't stand them.

These are perfect for some of my shoes with shallower toe boxes. I needs as much depth in the toe box as I can get. These give arch support but still give me a little more room.

This did not offer the arch support I was expecting. I would rate the arch support as minimal. They don't live up to the hype.

These were recommended to me by a podiatrist. They are true to size, supportive yet still comfortable. thin and amazing how much support and strength they have; do not interfere with the fit of my shoes. Highly recommend.

I prefer the Powerstep Pinnacle Plus insoles with a firmer arch support and metatarsal pad. These feel a lot like Klogs insoles! Really?!? You're asking about Style for an insole?

These seemed like they were going to be comfortable. However, the heel is so wide that it pushed the sides of my shoe out (my 4E width shoes), which made my shoes too loose in the heels. I don't know what kind of shoes these insoles are intended for, but they didn't work with extra wide trail runners.

I have a pair of Powerstep originals that I purchased at my chiropractor's office about two years ago.I decided to try the Powerstep Pinnacle, and I am very happy with them. I have tried other brand over the years, and these are the most comfortable. I have very high arches and a very high instep, and these give me great support.

Great insoles. REally helped with my plantar fasciitis. They take some breaking in (not sure if it's the insole or the actual foot). My Dr. warned me to only wear them 2 hours a day for a while until I got used to them.

These inserts add needed cushioning and arch support to my running shoes. I have high arches, so most running shoes do not provide enough support for me. My podiatrist had recommended a bulkier version of this insert, but it was too much for a running shoe. This one does the trick. I wear them to run and walk in and replace them about every six months. I have had tarsal tunnel syndrome in the past, and these help protect against a recurrence. I have a narrow foot, but these work perfectly.

They run small with a definite gap at the front. Size up to fill the shoe. I have extremely high arches and purchased these based on other reviews that they have good arch support. It is nowhere near enough for me. Guess I'll have to keep looking...

These are very similar to the Powerstep Pinnacle Maxx. Very excellent arch support. It is not a hard plastic arch support, but it is very firm and yet slightly flexible, so that the support eventually gives a little. The padding is not soft enough for me. They're kind of stiff, so you need to give them some break-in time to help with the flexibility. The top fabric layer is very nice; it appears to be some kind of nylon, and is kind of sock-like. There is not additional cushioning in the heel area, so if you have heel pain, these may not work for you. They would work well in boots but not athletic shoes, since they have very little flex. FYI, because the arch is pretty high, they will take up extra space in your shoes. THE MAJOR DIFFERENCE with these and the Powerstep Pinnacle Maxx is that these have a metatarsal pad to cushion and spread out the metatarsal heads. This did not work for me. It caused a pins-and-needles effect on the top of my feet, in between my 2nd and 3rd toes, and in my ankle area, after I wore them a short while. That was a very uncomfortable feeling, so I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t wear them. Otherwise, if you’re accustomed to having a metatarsal pad, these may be perfect for you. They are a very high quality insole.

Very good arch support. They fit very much like my hard plastic, custom orthotics. When I first tried them on, I was amazed at how supportive they were, but after wearing them for an hour, the support seemed to lessen. It is not a hard plastic arch support, but it is very firm and yet slightly flexible, so that the support eventually gives a little throughout the course of the day. The padding is not soft enough for me. They're kind of stiff, so they will take some break-in time to help with the flexibility. There is not extra cushioning in the heel area, so if you have heel pain, these may not work for you. They would work well in boots but not athletic shoes, since they have very little flex.

Ordered these in a men's 6/women's 8 and they sent me a mens XL. I used to get my order within 2 days. This took about a week and it was the wrong size. What happened Zappos?

They appear used when I took them out of the box. For the cost, I think that Zappos should look at the product before sending. They have wear on the edges and it looks like where the break in a stride, there is a wrinkle or fold. Shipping box was pristine condition however the item box, packaging, was clearly damaged.

The power step kids sport was purchased for a child so I cannot attest to the "comfort". I purchased it to add some area to the shoe because the child has a narrow foot and medium width shoes do not fit. Arch support was not necessary and just by looking at it, you can tell that there is no real arch support to it. (I have seen prescription orthotics and able to make a proper comparison) It does have spongy feel to it so I would imagine that it would work well to add to tennis shoes. Dressy type shoes are a nightmare to fit because children's shoes are not made in narrow widths. It works for what I purchased it for. The shoe has a 'better' fit. The size matched perfectly to a pair of hush puppy dress shoes with a velcro strap. It does have a rather vibrant green color to it which is a bit of a drawback but it can't be seen when the shoe is worn.

These insoles provide more support than the Pinnacle - a unique combination of upper comfort and lower firmness. Excellent for walking long distances and fairly easy to move from one pair of shoes to another. As someone with plantar fasciitis and high arches, I appreciate the excellent arch support.

Just enough support, not too much. Bought to help with mild plantar fasciitis, works for me. Not running super long distances but for everyday running, seem to be fine.

I think with regular wear this will help with stretching my plantar fascia and also my Achilles’ tendon. The Velcro band at the top of the sock is abrasive if not adjusted carefully. The sock is one length fits all and probably it would fit better if I had larger feet and longer legs. As it is, the Velcro hits me behind the leg and isn’t very comfortable. Of course the point of this isn’t really comfort so I’ll soldier on.

I just received these and stuck them in my Timberland hiking boots that came with garbage insoles. Immediately awesome. Perfectly contoured. Just the right amount of cushiness. Slightly snug, but the boots weren't super roomy to begin with, and I bet the foam will relax a little over the first few wears. I've been wearing them around the house as I pack for our camping trip this weekend and can't wait to see how the boots do with these on a hike and how my feet feel afterward. I ordered the same size as my boot, and it fit easily. Might order the pink ones from the same line for my girly regular day boots as well lol. Not that anyone would know they were pink, but I would. Description says they're built from the same platform insole, but these are camo, so clearly they're for hiking, right?

LOVE these. I have pain in the ball of my feet and no arch (Morton's Neuroma). These inserts are really good. I am a fitness trainer and do a ton of walking and I can easily get 3-4 months out of these (keep in mind I switch out between a half a dozen different training shoes). My podiatrist said these are his top pic for OTC inserts. They fit well in any of my running/training/walking shoes (I wear 8.5 to 9 ladies). Only complaint is the colour. Couldn't they be just a bit prettier?
