Just the right amount of padding.
What holds this back from being a 5 star product?: the insoles arrive looking like they were cut by hand for a middle school craft project (and these are not cheap, I might add). And there's zero structure to these, so they require a perfect fit (inside the shoe) or they will slide or bunch or come out every time you take off your shoes. I got a perfect fit, but they still come out of the shoe with the foot about 99% of the time -- which is annoying but not the end of the world. What's great: they are truly minimal and provide the goldilocks of padding -- just enough without being too much. The 3 mm size also means they will fit into almost any shoe. Plus, they're very easy to cut with any scissors. Overall, I like them quite a lot. I liked them enough to buy 2 pair, and they really transformed an unwearable pair of minimalist shoes which felt punishing to walk in.
After a couple months of wear, I feel confident in saying that these take my favorite minimal shoes and make them perfect for longer days of standing or walking on hard surfaces.
Wonderful to hear, Angie! Thank you for leaving this feedback! We certainly appreciate it and others will too!
I love these insoles, they’ve been the rebirth of my favorite shoe and I’m so happy to be able to continue comfortably wearing them!
Such great news! Thank you for leaving this feedback. Glad we were able to revive your favs!
LOVE THESE INSOLES!!
So comfortable. Makes having to stand on concrete for hours comfortable. Thank you!
So glad to hear this, Sally! Thank you!
Really effective insoles
I have these and the 6mm and they do exactly what they claim to do. I was having trouble transitioning to barefoot shoes on hard pavement, especially with vivobarefoot shoes, which I love, but which have very thin soles. These insoles have solved all of my problems. Highly recommended.
