PowerStep is a clinically proven line of orthotic insoles with built-in arch support, layered cushioning, and a deep heel cradle for the perfect balance of comfort and support. Designed by a podiatrist and the majority of our insoles made in the USA, all of our insoles feature our patented arch shape for every style shoe.
The PowerStep Pinnacle Memory Foam full length insoles offer the same support as our popular Pinnacle style, but with added ShockAbsorb Premium Memory Foam for those with sensitive feet. The Pinnacle Memory Foam full length insoles with built-in neutral arch support and two layers of plush cushioning are the perfect balance of comfort and support. The plush memory foam layer is a slow-recovery foam that conforms to the shape of the foot for added comfort and pressure relief, alleviating pain associated with fat pad atrophy/degeneration. The Pinnacle Memory Foam insoles feature the signature PowerStep arch shape that cradles the arch and heel, adding stability and motion control to limit excess stress on feet, ankles, joints, and tendons.
The PowerStep PULSE line of shoe insoles were designed specifically for use in advanced running shoes during rigorous athletic activity. The PowerStep PULSE Performance full length insoles have a unique design with a built-in arch support and heel cradle that stabilizes the foot and improves alignment.
After researching over 50 pairs of insoles, our expert gear testers rounded up 10 of the best available today to give you an extensive look at what each pair has to offer. These small inserts for your shoes can make a big difference, and for runners, athletes, people with jobs that require them to be on their feet all day, or those who suffer from common injuries like plantar fasciitis or overpronation, we're sure to help you find a pair of insoles to suit your unique needs and budget. The way that insoles fit and feel can be a very subjective experience dependent on foot shape, size, needs, and medical conditions, so let this review serve as more of a guideline to the best features of each brand.
You might not think that the Superfeet Green insoles will impress at first glance. You won't find the advanced padding and appearances of some support insoles; however, this classic style will work with most shoes and provide superior daily support. If you spend long hours on your feet working in a restaurant or hospital, need extra arch support to keep plantar fasciitis at bay, or simply want better supportive foot care than your built-in insoles, the Superfeet Green is our recommendation. We love that the narrow shape fits well into running shoes, casual shoes, and hiking boots while leaving enough room for a good fit, and since they're not overly padded, they're almost unnoticeable. They are designed with a classic foam forefoot and a strong plastic arch and heel support that keeps our feet feeling well-supported and pleasant.
Our main gripe with these great insoles are the cost. Since they are only good for 500 miles or around 12 months, whichever milestone is crossed first, the need to replace them will increase costs down the line. They don't come with the same amount of cushion as some others we tested, but the Superfeet Green aren't created to just be comfy; they are built for support, and they succeed in that endeavor quite well. This model is designed specifically to help with high arches, but they also come in other styles for various foot support needs.
The Spenco Polysorb Cross Trainer insoles are specially constructed for athletic users. However, they are also a great option for budget-minded folks seeking additional comfort and who want to reduce impact for their feet in day-to-day scenarios. The forefoot and heel both feature extra built-in padding, allowing them to take on additional shock in the area of the foot most impacted when running and doing other sports.
The lightweight polyurethane foam used in the Spenco Polysorb Cross Trainer only offers moderate arch support, so if you have a condition that calls for more arch support, you may need to look elsewhere. The insole doesn't feature any rigid components, and the lightweight design means they are more prone to wearing away over time. They aren't as durable as some others we've tested, and their flimsy nature means they're a bit tricky to get into your shoe. However, their super-thin profile and high level of cushioning make them great for those who don't have extra room to spare but want extra comfort. We think you should consider the Spenco Cross Trainer insoles if you are shopping for comfort on a budget.
While we enjoyed the high cushion and comfort of these Dr. Scholl's insoles, they're also higher-volume, taking up more space in our shoes. They are also much wider and larger than other insoles we tested, making them better for boots or work shoes and not as much for tight-fitting casual or athletic shoes. Someone who suffers from plantar fasciitis might want extra support in all the shoes they wear to help prevent pain, but these are not easy to switch in and out of shoes because of their size, volume, and lack of rigidity.
The Superfeet Carbon are a low-volume, low-profile pair of insoles made for performance athletic shoes and tight-fitting casual shoes. With thin, lightweight yet high-density foam and a hard, carbon fiber stabilizer cap, these insoles are high-quality and help give your feet extra comfort and support. With moderate arch support, these are excellent for those with flat feet and can slip easily into any shoe. The perforated forefoot is also a unique touch that enhances breathability and also makes these insoles even more lightweight.
If you are looking for a lot of extra cushion, the Superfeet Carbon is not our top choice for pure plush comfort. But since the structured heel cup helps to naturally absorb impact, they are actually very comfortable in the long run, and their bonus low profile won't take up a lot of space in your shoes as other more cushioned insoles will.
The Currex RunPro are German-designed insoles made specifically for running. Runners who often suffer from foot and knee injuries such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, runner's knee, and other issues due to participating in the high-impact activity require extra support to alleviate their pain. The Currex insoles have triple support for the areas impacted the most by running with rigid arch support, a cushion for the ball of the foot, as well as one for the heel for shock absorption. Made of high-quality materials, they also have a bamboo and charcoal mid-layer for help with moisture-wicking and odor control.
A great product comes with a price, and the Currex RunPro are among the most expensive insoles we tested. These may be better suited to serious runners who log a lot of miles and need high-quality, reliable support, and seek the customization of a brand that makes different models for your specific arch type. If this sounds like you, then the Currex RunPro will not disappoint.
The EasyFeet Plantar Fasciitis Arch Support Insoles boast a unique, hard arch design made of thermoplastic polyurethane. Unlike other insoles made with regular polyurethane, which tends to lose its shape over time, the EasyFeet arches are sturdy and durable, providing support and pain relief directly to the heel and the plantar fascia. They also include a thin yet very comfortable layer of memory foam cushion for comfort and an odor-neutralizing top layer. By providing direct support to the arch, these insoles are designed to help relieve pain associated with plantar fasciitis and other foot-related issues, as well as keep the feet in proper alignment for reduced foot pressure and muscle fatigue for hard activity or long days on your feet.
The hard backing provides noticeable pressure on your arches and takes some time to get used to. After a couple of days of continuous wear, our testers found the targeted support to be quite comfortable and supportive. But this could be different depending on your arch type and foot size, and the pronounced arch support could be too much for some. Our testers were impressed by the quality of the EasyFeet Arch Support insoles, and for the price, they seem like they will provide great comfort and support over the long run.
The Dr. Scholl's Running Insoles offer excellent shock absorption and arch support with their triple-zone design. Like the ones from Currex RunPro, these running insoles have padding for the ball of the foot and the heel as well as hard plastic reinforced arch support. The extra padded zones help absorb the shock associated with pounding pavement or trails, and Dr. Scholl's claims that these insoles reduce shock up to 40%. This reduced shock combined with the thin plastic arch can help relieve pain associated with runner's injuries like plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and runner's knee.
These slipped easily into our tester's running shoes, who noticed their stride feeling lighter and easier due to their great shock absorption. But our testers found that these insoles took up valuable real estate in their running shoes, which made them feel snugger than they would prefer. There is also pronounced extra padding directly under the metatarsal, which could be great for someone suffering from metatarsalgia, but since our testers do not, this extra padding just puts unwanted pressure on that part of the foot. Though they may sacrifice some room in your running shoes, these insoles provide great shock absorption and support for a low price.
The Powerstep Pinnacle are the best insoles we tested for helping remedy foot pain due to pronation. The most common pronation issues are overpronation and underpronation, whereby the natural inward rolling of the foot on impact either rolls too much (overpronation) or too little (underpronation), putting pressure on specific areas instead of distributing force evenly throughout the foot. This can lead to many issues down the line, including the common plantar fasciitis. The Powerstep Pinnacle insoles help keep the feet from over or under pronating with their deep heel cup that aids with natural alignment, and a semi-rigid shell with arch support that provides stability. They're stiff and slip easily into your shoes, allowing you to put them into multiple pairs of shoes without hassle, and are low-profile enough not to take up too much room. 041b061a72
