Worked on concrete 10 hours a day. My dogs were screaming by the end of the day. By the end of the week I could barely take a step without pain. For 4 years I tried different shoes. The Redwing/Sole combination took care of the problem. Now my feet hurting aren't even in the picture anymore. Thanks.

I have been looking for a comfortable pair of shoes to wear in the warmer weather while vending and competing at BBQ contests (where I have to be on my feet approx. 12 - 14 hours a day for 2 and 3 days at a time), and found the Women's Sport Flips at an EMS store. After speaking with one of the associates, she assured me that while the price was higher than what I was comfortable paying for a pair of flip-flops, I wouldn't regret the purchase. She was right. I just returned from a contest in Windsor, VT and found these were far more comfortable that even my running shoes (I actually changed out of them after 2 hours and wore the flip-flops instead on the 2nd day). I did not have the aching/tired feeling I normally get after standing on my feet all day and was amazed. I was on my feet for 3 days straight and could have kept on going.
I will be purchasing another pair in a different color and will also be purchasing the sport slides for my husband as well.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

After experiencing chronic foot pain (gout, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and cramping brought on by limping from a severe hamstring injury) my podiatrist recommended Sole inserts. It took a couple of months, but all my foot problems went away. This was about 10 years ago. I have tried many other brands, but have never had the success that I had with Sole. A lot people have recommended Superfeet and I have tried them. I don't think there is anything wrong with the other brands, its just that for me personally Sole is the most comfortable and gives me the best results.
I buy enough pairs in different thicknesses to put in the shoes that I wear most often. And I have a couple pairs in different thicknesses that I transfer from shoe to shoe as needed. I should mention that I am a big hiker. I go 2 miles every morning and go on 4 to 8 hour hikes about once or twice a week. Depending on the hike and the weather, I use heavy duty Vasques, lightweight Patagonia, sandals from either Teva or Keen and hiking boots from Keen. I wear the inserts with everything except Chaco sandals. I have also worked as a lift operator at ski areas and have always worn inserts in my snow boots. Bumping chairs all day is really brutal on your feet. You stand on the ball of your foot and lift your heel. As the people sit down, you bump the chair and let it spin you around, so you see the takeoff. When you see that no one has fallen out you must spin back around for the next chair. This is repeated every 5 to 7 seconds. I never had one bit of foot problem.

I love these inserts. I bought for work original because work 12-hour shifts, in safety-toe shoes, and I walk primarily on concrete for the majority of the shift. Finding good support had been quite challenging. Most shoe inserts are soft and cushion-y to the touch, which I would have thought would help with the impact, but they always lacked in support and my foot would still be sore by the end of the day. These are the best insoles (foot beds) I have ever owned and I will never buy another brand. I have recommended them to several friends at work, and I know at least one has ordered them and expect them to arrive shortly. I expect to continue recommending them for a very long time.

I have been using my Custom Footbeds for about 2 years now and I am hooked! I am a Volunteer Firefighter, and a full-time machine operator in a local factory. I have Footbeds in my work boots, my station boots, and my firefighting boots. Whether its the long hours on my feet in the factory, or the harsh conditions that we firefighters face, my feet are always the last thing to start hurting. I have talked to many of my friends and family, and everyone says the same thing, "Once my feet start hurting, I'm done!" I say the same thing, but now I'm able to perform for a longer time before I'm ready to take a break. Thank you for making such a wonderful product, and I look forward to the next generation of your SOLE products.
