I have really extreme overpronation and low arches and live a very active lifestyle. I play tennis and football for my college and for the last two years every practice and game has been a nightmare. I get really bad shin splints and for as long as I can remember Ive had to take 4 or 5 ibuprofen just to make it through practice and even then I was in pain. I tried these footbeds over my medical orthodics and miraculously have no pain almost instantly! These things are great and have me saying goodbye to the podiatrist and looking forward to practice!

I only recently started running, and while I am in good shape from surfing, my legs were not completely up to the task. I would get shin splints and just generally various sore muscles and such. Since I started wearing your soles, my legs feel fine and I can run even more.

Believe me, I've been doing nothing but spreading the word. I have a set of prescribed orthotics that I no longer use thanks to your insoles. The prescribed orthotics are too tall, too cushiony (shin splints as a result), and they have no padding to speak of after 1 monty of use. I use the ultras in my running shoes, (no more shin splints), and the regulars in my combat boots. Thanks for the great product, I'll be a regular purchaser.

I am on my way to becoming a huge advocate of your product. I've been wearing custom orthotics from a doctor since I was 16(34 now) to correct pretty severe overpronation. The orthotics were pretty much a miracle cure for the last 18 years. I'm a regular, though not fanatic, runner and cyclist. Among other tings, my old orthotics got me through 4 years in the Marine Corps, One marathon, and a lot of training. I stick to the if it ain't broke, don't fix it" principle, and never considered changing anything until I started having some chronic tendenitis(I think) in my ankle a few months ago. It was really going out on a limb for me to try your product after all those years of success with my old orthotics. I am pleased to say that they are an absolute success so far. I've been running or cycling in them on a daily basis. no shin splints, the tentonitis has gone away, and I really do think they are an improvement over the custom orthotics. Anyway, I think you have a great product and that opinion becomes stronger with every passing mile!

I have used many off-the-shelf arch supports over the past ten years as an Orthotist for residents of Kansas. These people are soldiers and I see a variety of foot types. I average about 90 patients per week with approximately 70% having foot related problems. Most of these problems are associated with hyper-mobile joints of the foot causing a flattened arch. With most shoes or boots this flattened arch position is present due to inadequate insoles that are not conformed to every persons feet. Some of the problems are plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, shin splints, knee pain and sometimes hip and low back pain.
SOLE has come up with a great product that can be worn out of the box or heat molded to fit a persons feet. These orthotics have proven to provide the contour that people need in their shoes and I often get requests for more than one pair. SOLE Custom Footbeds are a cost effective way to reduce the hyper-mobility of the feet comfortably without adjustments.
