Comments: If you are flat-footed like me, or have low arches, these insoles may offer you some help. I'm generally skeptical of insoles, since I never have had good luck with finding any that helped me while running, until I found these. What prompted me to try them is when I discovered I had plantar fasciitis in my left foot. These insoles do a wonderful job of supporting my arch and taking some of the pressure off of my heel. If you have plantar fasciitis, your heel is where you will feel the pain, particularly on the inside of it. These insoles are thin as described, so they do not take up a lot of space inside of your shoes, and the arch is subtle, so there wasn't the jabbing or protruding feeling that I have felt while wearing other insoles designed for people with flat feet or low arches. If you are suffering from plantar fasciitis, I would strongly recommend giving these a try, since I believe they are part of a long-term solution to this problem. They provide relief to a stressed arch, and take a lot of pressure off of your heel. I run 40 - 50 miles per week while not training for a race, and 70 - 100 miles per week while training, depending on the race.

Comments: I had plantar fasciitis a couple of years ago from running and I had to take a break from running to let it heal (took about a year). To my horror, I started feeling the pain again 2 weeks ago. I heard about superfeet, and ordered the blue one because I have lower arches. They are just what I needed. This past weekend I did a 7-mile run and played tennis without any hint of my plantar fasciitis pain. I will buy more. Even better is the fact that I'm a size 8 so I didn't even have to cut the insole and it fit perfectly in my sneakers.
