Since writing my post about me getting plantar fasciitis I thought that it would be helpful to create this open list to let people share their thoughts and reviews on insoles that they have tried.

I really don't know who designed these insoles but whoever did must have designed them with their eyes closed or in a really dark room because these insoles are a really weird shape and really are not designed for human feet...The weird shape of these insoles make wearing them a highly uncomfortable experience! There is a lot of arch support on these insoles but way too much even if you have extremely flat feet like me if you wear these insoles will still push your feet upwards and hurt them. Something else that I do not like about these insoles is that they are very thin and do not absorb shock AT ALL! When you go running in them you can feel all the shocks and jolts to your feet as you run!
In my opinion footactive insoles are too hard and do not support your feet properly! The hard plastic shell around the insoles makes wearing them extremely stiff and your feet will not be able to flex at all! What is more these insoles will fix your feet into a flat and unsupportive position which is the complete opposite of what a god pair of insoles should do! The only good thing about these insoles is that they are a lot cheaper than others costing around £20.. however there is good reason for that!
Even though the Drscholl active insoles only cost £15 to buy online I would not buy them because they are pointless and a waste of money. These insoles are poor quality, poorly designed and will not absorb shock despite what it says in its product description! When I wore these insoles inside my shoes I had to take them out after awhile or so of wearing them simply because they are useless and do not support or do anything for your feet apart from make your shoes tight and uncomfortable to wear. You are better off not having them in your shoes!
These insoles are meant be gel insoles that mould to the shape of your feet and support your feet according to the exact contours and shape of your feet however they don't d that at all! When I wore these insoles I found that the gel is way too stiff which means your feet just rest on top and the insoles just stay flat and do not support your feet. What is more the insoles are really low quality and probably have been made on the cheap at in some Chinese factory. Like the drscholl gel insoles these are just a waste of money and just make your feet feel tight inside your shoes and that about it!
Superfeet green insoles are often recommend on a lot of running forums and blogs as being the best insoles you can buy for running however these reviews often come from people being paid to say this or from people that work for superfeet lying to people to get people to buy their insoles.
I have a pair of superfeet greens after falling for the all the hype about these insoles and what a complete and utter waste of money it was buying them! THEY ARE ABSOLTUTLY RUBBISH!
First f all the insoles are perfectly flat and do not offer any support to your feet whatsoever which isn't any good for helping with plantar fasciitis. Secondly these insoles have this hard plastic shell underneath the heel to “protect against shock” however all this plastic shell does is dig into your arch when you walk. Thirdly these insoles get worn out pretty fast.. I found with mine that only after wearing them for few times out running the insoles started to come apart... after about a month of wearing them the foam insole totally disintegrated and detached from the plastic heel cup underneath. If you are thinking about buying a pair of superfeet green insoles then think again!
Asiv gel insoles are really cheap costing only £6 including free delivery on amazon.. but there is a very good reason why these insoles are so cheap and that is because they are really poor quality and cheaply made. It is actually quite hard to describe how these insoles feel when you have them inside your shoes.... they feel weird! They feel really flimsy and the gel heel doesn't mould to the shape of your heel but just squishes down and makes your feet feel unbalanced and awkward. I wouldn't recommend these.
I bought a pair of scholl orthaheel insoles after seeing them being advertised on tv and suffering from major plantar fasciitis at the time I decided to give them the go (even though the drscholl gel were a major disappointment). I really wish I hadn't bothered though because they are worse than the standard insoles that were inside my running shoes as they are really rigid and hard on your feet Plus the arch support sucks big time because it just isnt there! The right arch support is really important when you are suffering with plantar fasciitis as it helps to keep the strain and pressure off your arches as your foot heals however these insoles do not do this or anything else for that matter.. truth is you cannot even tell you have them on when you are wearing them and your feet still hurt like crazy! These insoles are meant to be for sport and absorb shock but whenever I wore these when going out running or playing football these insoles did not absorb any shock and It just felt as though I was running on hard pavement and underneath my heels would start to hurt after only a couple minutes.
At £20 these insoles are a total rip off so don't make the same mistake I made and save your money and just don't buy these cruddy insoles!
Superfeet premium blue insoles are terrible so do not buy if you don't want to end up getting plantar fasciitis!
If you are looking to buy a pair of insoles that will help ease your plantar fasciitis then make sure you avoid superfeet blue premium insoles at all costs! I bought my pair from amazon for around £31 and they are absolutely rubbish!
These insoles are really poor quality and you will find that they will wear out quite quickly especially if you are wearing them inside your running shoes. What is more the support that these insoles is really bad and really is not good for your feet and would porbabaly cause you to get plantar fasciititis not help it, this is because these insoles push your arches upwards far too much when you wear them causing your arches to feel uncomfortable and tight this causes you to be more susceptible to over stretching and getting plantar fasciitits.
