What customers say about how SOLE helped with ankle pain.
I have planters, heel spurs, equinus ankles, arthritis and arch problems. I have tried lots of different brands some help for a while but eventually the pain returns. However, I discovered the Sole Insoles in 2011 and have been buying and wearing them ever since. I can wear for an entire day and have no pain. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fantastic!

During a terrible car accident, in which I should have died, my right ankle was crushed. After 2 weeks in a trauma unit, I went home with 5 pins and a plate holding my ankle together, while it healed in a cast. I came out of the cast 2 months later, on my way to an amazing miraculous recovery. My foot survived but is now pronated to the inside (at least I have it, doctors thought I would lose it).
I went to a podiatrist during physical therapy and he suggested I try Sole Inserts before resorting to custom orthotics. After wearing these inserts for 2 weeks, I walk without a limp. These are amazing and have given me new hope for a relatively normal life!! Thank you.

I first purchased these for my snowboarding boots as I the outside of my ankle had too much pressure in my boots. After I put in the footbeds, that pain went away almost entirely. I have high arches, and I don't even mould the footbeds. I feel like I could use even higher arches on the footbeds to make me even more comfortable.

My company moved to a new building in June 2008. The floors are hard concrete. I began having foot pain (plantar fasciitis) in my right foot. After a few months I began to walk with a limp and by the end of my shift my ankle was swelling and in a lot of pain. The price was reasonable. I felt I would try this before paying hundreds of dollars on custom orthotics. Having two co-workers highly recommend the product also played a big role.
After wearing the footbeds for two weeks, I no longer was limping around at work. I could walk normal. Before I was trying to walk without my heel touching the ground because the pain was so great. After a month of wearing the footbeds, my ankle no longer swelled. After 5 weeks, I no longer had to wear my ankle brace. This product far exceeded my expectations.

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 things, my old orthotics got me through 4 years in the Marines, 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 tendonitis (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 tendonitis 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!

Choose your footbed based on your shoe size. Half-sizes order a full-size up and trim the toe with scissors to fit your shoe size.
See additional fitting and molding instructions here.
If you are a half size, we recommend going up half a size for all SOLE footwear and footbeds (if you normally wear an 8.5, choose a 9)
