Recommend for running on asphalt
Awesome experience yes
In my Merrill Vapor Gloves they have been very helpful softening the blow from from every pebble to a manageable “barefoot” experience.
Great for on concrete
I got these to use in my Xero barefoot shoes as I needed more cushion for wearing them at work on concrete all day. I have since transferred them into my non-barefoot steel toe work boots and they have made it so my toes have more room after replacing the original insole. My feet haven’t been sore or as tired since using these! I plan on purchasing more so I don’t have to transfer them so much.
Best insoles I've ever owned
I bought the bundle as I wasn't sure which to choose. I have moved into barefoot shoes over the past year but I had been finding the ground hard under foot, especially on days when I was on my feet a lot or walking a lot. I use them in BeLenka, Groundies and Anatomic. I do think there is slightly less of a barefoot experience when using them but I'm happy with the trade off. I thought they were expensive initially but decided to risk it based on other reviews and I think they are good value. I leave them out sometimes but if I know I'll do a lot of walking, especially on concrete or on shop floors I use them. The thicker ones don't fit in some of my shoes but they are incredibly comfortable. Both are great. I would consider buying winter boots one size bigger to fit the thicker insoles next time.
