Since the beginning, our goal has been to make a positive impact in people's lives.
Pain; people live with it every day. Some live with more than others, but everyone understands that even mild pain can affect your ability to perform everyday activities.
What if you didn't have to make peace with your pain? How different would your life be without that limitation? What if there was a solution that adapted to your unique needs and was accessible to everyone?
SOLE Custom Footbeds and Footwear are your solution. Our innovative, adaptable products guarantee to provide industry-best cushioning and support, customised for each user. SOLE's unique orthopaedic shape and mould-optimised materials are built into every pair of footbeds and footwear that we make, adapting to your body without losing support.
This accommodative support optimises your foot’s natural functionality. No matter what your activity level is, you will benefit from the personalised support and cushioning SOLE products offer. When your feet are supported and their function is optimised, the barrier of pain is reduced or eliminated, allowing you to live up to your full potential. Helping you reach higher than you did yesterday is what SOLE is all about.
Improving your health and wellness is our primary objective at SOLE.
When we first developed our footbeds, it was important to us that they offer more than simple comfort. They needed to be comfortable of course, but they also need to be truly effective at reducing pain and fatigue.
Through an ongoing partnership with Dr. Reed Ferber and the Running Injury Clinic, we've been able to help fund studies of the effectiveness of insoles on injury prevention and performance.
We found that SOLE Custom Footbeds reduce plantar fascia strain by up to 34% – a one third reduction! Reduced strain not only alleviates current pain but is also effective at preventing future pain.
Beyond the research, we receive emails, letters, and testimonials every day telling us that SOLE products saved their feet and made it possible for them to become active again.
SOLE products are effective, long lasting, and have very high customer satisfaction. Time and again, SOLE has proven to be the best over-the-counter orthotic on the market.
SOLE can make a difference for athletes of every type and skill level.
Professional basketball and football players. World-class cyclists and mountaineers. Endurance runners and championship skiers. Once they experience SOLE, they don't go back.
SOLE is their secret weapon. The adaptable support gives them an edge. The orthopaedic shape adapts to the body, creating a customised, continuous surface of contact with the sole of the foot.
This personalised fit increases the awareness of what is going on outside the footwear. The enhanced feel can mean the difference between sticking the landing, and rolling your ankle.
Extreme mountaineer Ed Viesturs, ultramarathon man Dean Karnazes, world-class downhill skier Chris Davenport. They all swear by their SOLE Custom Footbeds, and even have their own signature models.
Golfers tell us that SOLE added distance to their drive. Runners tell us their endurance is enhanced. Cyclists shave seconds off their personal best time. When you have SOLE inside, you can push past the limits you thought you had, reaching higher and going farther.
Design is our obsession; it has to be great.
Our goal is to provide our users with the best possible experience while having the least possible impact on the environment.
We believe that comfort does not have to come at the expense of style. Pain-free doesn't have to mean style-free.
We relentlessly pursue our goals by embracing new technologies, devising innovative formulations, sourcing superior materials, and enforcing stringent quality and environmental standards.
Every subtle nuance of our orthopaedic shape, every material used, every detail, must be exactly right and its impact considered.
We developed the best footbeds and socks on the market by putting our passion and determination into every pair we produced. The natural next step was footwear.
Setting out to design a truly unique line, we took classic footwear profiles, combined them with our unique brand sensibility, and integrated our orthotic expertise. The result has been a revolution in comfort.
Increased sustainability, decreased environmental impact.
We believe we have a responsibility to each other and future generations to consider the impact our actions have on our environment. In pursuit of balance, every element of our operations must be considered.
Researching new ways to increase the recycled content in our products led us to natural cork. Cork pulls carbon out of the atmosphere and locks it away and is an excellent replacement for petroleum-based components.
Inspired by the potential of cork, we launched the ReCORK program in 2008 and grew it into North America's largest natural cork wine closure recycling program. We take the recycled wine corks and use them as the primary material in a new footwear line, as well as a growing line of other consumer products.
We measure the impact we have on the earth and offset accordingly, eliminating our carbon footprint beyond carbon neutral, all the way to carbon negative.
We didn't just achieve carbon negative status – we pioneered it. Cork oak tree planting, cork bark harvesting, wine cork recycling, and purchasing carbon offsets all contribute to going beyond offsetting our carbon footprint.
We believe that we can always do better than we did yesterday.
Giving back is fundamental to who we are. Grassroots employee volunteering and charity donation programs accompany regular donations to four main organizations that focus on health, fitness, climate change, and social responsibility.
Big City Mountaineers is an urban youth mentoring program that focuses on building life skills through wilderness adventures.
Protect Our Winters is a global winter sports collective whose focus is educating the community about the effects of climate change.
Karno Kids is a non-profit organization focused on supporting youth-centric programs with the mission to encourage and support young people to be more physically active and to preserve the environment for future generations.
Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit organization whose mission is to fight poverty by distributing new and used shoes and clothing to people in need.

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)
