in all my running shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

these go in all my running shoes, and keep injuries away! They aren't overly supportive, they are just right!

Hard and comfy!

I've been using these for about 1 year now and I love them! Every time I buy a new pair of shoes I buy a new pair of insoles for them! They help with my over pronated ankles.

Better than Superfeet!

The Sole are way better than Superfeet, if you need more arch support. You can't tell from Backcountry's material information but they have a rigid arch that does not flex so it supports as it should. Also the Sole does NOT squeak after months of use like the Superfeet do. This is a plus if you are using them in your "public" shoes like for job or grocery shopping (Superfeet squeak so loud people stop and look). I have a second pair of Sole that my orthopedic surgeon altered with a heel and forefoot wedge to correct a biomechanical problem now I run pain free, daily, and the Sole have lasted a year of running in them, about 1000 miles so far, with no loss of comfort.

helped my shin splints

I was having problems with shin splints and these were suggested by my orthopedic specialist. (Their office makes also custom orthotics). It was explained to me these correct cases of arch collapse but not much with heel movement. With a combination of leg strengthening exercises and icing these pretty much fixed my shin splints. After wearing them for a while in my running shoes as well as my work shoes, I started to miss them when I wasn't wearing them.

The "molding" really only mildly dents the top layer of foam, I don't know how much different this is than just wearing them and letting them mold to your foot like any other footbed.

If you are on your feet all day in work boots, etc. you might want to look at their thicker insoles, as these are not the softest things out there. Just so you understand what these are, they are a layer of hardish plastic with a high arch, covered in a thin (1.6mm) layer moldable of foam.

These definitely require a high volume shoe/boot.

Best fitting foot-beds out there

Bought a pair of these about a month ago to use in some trail running shoes. They broke in relatively quickly, only ~10 miles or so. They are incredibly comfortable and help with my supination. Two points of advice:

1) They are relatively high volume, so make sure you have room in the shoes you plan to use.
2) Don't overuse them while breaking them in. They caused quite a bit of pain after i used them for a five mile run the first time out.

Feet Savers

I put these in my Burton SLX's and my feet could not be happier. The softecs provide plenty of support and comfort for my feel all day. Stock insoles just don't cut it buy these you will be stoked.

Sizing Issues?

I've got a pair of these (Sole Softec Response) and a pair of Sole's Ed Viesturs Signature Edition.

Both are great (comfortable, well-fitting, etc.), but I noticed a large discrepancy in the sizing between the two styles

The men's size 11 (W13) in the softec was a full size larger than the M11/W13 in the Viesturs (see attached photo).

I was able to trim them to fit, but it's something to keep in mind.

The Viesturs insoles fit perfectly out of the box; so trimming the Softecs allowed them to fit, but if I'd needed to trim the Viesturs then the softecs might have simply been too big, despite being the same 'size'.

Sizing Issues?
Responded on


I've since gotten a new pair of the Viesturs and solved the sizing issue.

The new Viesturs have a different logo/image than the old ones that I have. And there was a apparently a sizing change when they changed the logos.

Both my new and old Viesturs are size 11 (M11/W13), but the new ones are a full size larger than the old ones (just like the new Softecs were a full size larger than my old Viesturs).

So it seems that if you have an older, circa 2009 pair of insoles you're using as a sizing guide, you should think about ordering a size down when purchasing new ones from SOLE.
