These things are great, just used them for a long weekend walking around San Francisco in my barefoot boots, my feet never once got tired or sore and we were walking 6+miles a day. I love how wide the forefoot is, it filled up my boots well.
Cushioned, but caused problems
I'm a long-time barefoot shoe wearer, but have been having trouble recovering from plain old soreness from impact due to the amount of training I've been doing. I was hoping that adding a little bit of cushion would offset the problem. Fit and installation was easy. They didn't work out though, because the smushy, cushiony, goodness and bounce led to cramping in little muscles in the foot. I gave them a bit of time to see how this would go, but they just aren't useful for the intended purpose. I plan to try them for times I am standing all day, but they don't solve the problem I needed solved.
Très bonne semelle minimaliste. Je les mis dans mes chaussures de travail Birkenstock. Je suis dans la construction et travailler toute la journée dans grosses chaussures atrophie mes pieds. Grâce à ces chaussures et a ces semelles, mes pieds sont de nouveau plus sollicité. Je conserve un confort optimal.
Simply the solution to all barefoot shoes.
NorthSole Insoles pleasantly surprised with their thoughtful design and comfortable construction. Seeking additional cushion without sacrificing the barefoot sensation, they delivered the perfect amount to alleviate my plantar fasciitis. These insoles seamlessly fit into my Shapen Ivy, Fluffy, Lems Chelsea, and Zero Alpine boots.
