#1 Footreviver arch support insoles

These are just the best! I wear them all the time inside my shoes and they support my feet really well. They are made out of carbon fiber which means that they are very lightweight and aren't bulky like so many other insoles. I wear them for everyday use and inside my running shoes and they have not let me down once!

  1. I wear these all the the time now because they make my shoes so much more comfortable. I used to wear superfeet insoles but those did nothing to help support my feet or stop my feet from hurting. These on the other hand are so much better as they are a third of the price but give me a lot better arch support and will fit inside all of my shoes without any problems whilst the superfeet ones would push my feet into awkward positions and felt just too bulky inside my shoes.

  2. I highly recommend any with flat feet to buy these. Have helped tremendously with sorting out and supporting my flat feet no I don’t suffer anywhere near as bad as I used to with aches and pains.

  3. I really like these insoles too. I have a pair in each of my shoes and don’t get any foot pain or aches thanks to them. Wouldn’t bother with any other brand now except from footreviver which are so much better than superfeet!

#2 Powerstep Protech full length orthotic support insoles

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!

  1. Got myself a pair of these last week and thought I would just warn people not to buy them…. as after wearing them for a week iv decided to bin them. They are simply no good and seem to push my feet into a weird and uncomfortable position and have caused me to get blisters on my feet and bad heel pain.

  2. These are dreadful! They did not help with my foot pain at all in fact they made things worse and totally messed up my feet I would not suggest anyone buy them.

#3 Footactive Orthotics

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!

  1. These are awful, very expensive and do nothing to help! I bought them to try to help with the pain I was getting in my arches but after week of wearing them they have done nothing to help with my pain..if anything they have made my feet feel worse. Would not recommend anyone buy them!

#4 Dr Scholl’s Active insoles

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!

  1. I bought these and they were next to useless. Gave my feet very little support and were very uncomfortable to wear.

#5 Tender Gel Soles

These insoles are meant to be gel insoles that support mold to the shape of your feet according to the exact contours and shape of your feet, HOWEVER they don't do 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 do not support your feet one bit. They 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 🙁

#6 Superfeet Green

Superfeet green insoles are often recommend on a lot of running forums and blogs as being the best insoles you can buy for running, BUT the truth is that these reviews are often produced by people who have been paid to say this or from people that work for superfeet to trick people into buying 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 of all the insoles are perfectly flat and do not offer any proper arch support to your feet, which means these insoles are not very good at all for helping with injuries such as 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. Tese insoles are not durable and get worn out pretty fast. After wearing them for couple for 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!

  1. I really don’t no why people recommend these so much because they are rubbish and expensive! Did very little to help with my plantar fasciitis pain and were very awkward and uncomfortable.

#7 Asiv gel insoles

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.

#8 Scholl Orthaheel Sports Orthotics

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!

  1. These are over priced and complete rubbish. They do not support your feet and caused mine to ache even more when I wore them. If your thinking of buying these insoles then I would suggest you think again and save your money and buy something else. You can get better from ebay for a third of the prices of these.

#9 Superfeet premium blue 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 probably cause you to get plantar fasciitiis 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 fasciitis.

  1. I tried a pair of these superfeet insoles a while back and they really do suck! After a week wearing them they totally ruined my feet giving me really bad blisters and aches and pains. I just threw them in the bin and bought some footrevivers instead

  1. Yep, Orthaheels definitely get a thumbdown from me as when I wore them in my shoes I kept on getting foot cramps and aches. No good!

  2. I agree with the superfeet blue review.. those insoles suck big time. I got them for my shoes and all they did was make my feet feel uncomfortable and tight in my shoes, I then just had to throw them away because amazon for some reason wouldn’t even give me a refund.

  3. I cannot believe how expensive insoles are! £30 for a piece of plastic? That is just ridiculous. I never wear insoles in my shoes and have never got plantar fasciitis in my life.. I just get aching feet sometimes if I stand around fro long periods but that is it.

  4. Sometimes you gotta think do you really need insoles? If you don’t have flat feet or poor gait for example insoles might not actually help and could actually make things worse. For me the best insoles are no insoles at all.. I find that they just bulk up my shoes too much and don’t really do much.. but that just me and everyone is different.
