For 20 plus years I have experienced ball of foot discomfort, and yes I have a high arch. I am a 65 year old male with a very active history of playing sports, running, cycling and hiking.
Recently my discomfort was increasing so I began researching orthotic insoles ( I have done this numerous times through the years) and came across Tread Labs on the internet. I have spent hundreds of dollars on custom orthotics made by my foot doc, "support orthotics" bought at a trade show and over the counter orthotic insoles. I have also used several variations of met pads as well as making my own.
The Tread Lab Guarantee pushed me over the edge to try "another" option to alleviate my foot discomfort. I took the fit test, called and talked to Dan (who was very knowledgeable and helpful) then ordered the Stride Thin High Arch size 10-11.5 with Met Pads.
I have worn the Stride Thins with Met Pads for about three weeks now and I am very pleased. This product is better than any of my previous choices. Ball of foot discomfort has dramatically decreased. I had no trouble breaking in the Stride Thins and the high arch version with met pad hugs my arch perfectly and protects the ball of my foot. Dan even sent me a little larger met pad after I wore the standard one. The larger one works better for me.
If you have a foot problem similar to mine, see your foot doc and then try Tread Labs orthotic insoles FIRST before you spend your time and money on other products. I will "vote with my dollars" for Tread Labs again when I order a pair of Stride Shorts.
i’ve had $600 custom orthotics before and just didn't want to keep paying so much and decided to give these a try. I can already tell that these are truly excellent orthotics and an amazing investment. I was worried they would need too soft since I have very fleet feet but I orderef the highest one and they are perfect.
Fantastic insoles! Instantly felt a difference. So much support. I absolutely love them!
As the years have gone on my walking mechanics have gotten worse, I already over pronated before I started putting on weight and over the last year developed a Morton's neuroma. I decided to do something about my weight but it was absolutely miserable trying to become more active with the foot pain I was enduring. I changed out all my shoes and that was better but still didn't help so I started looking into orthodics and insoles, I came across Treadlabs and liked what I saw and read so I decided to give them a shot. They were expensive but I figured I didn't have anything to lose with what seemed to be a great return/exchange policy, it really made it seem like they believed in their product. I got the medium and high arch heights to try them out and the first couple weeks they were a little strange to get used to but after that they felt normal and the different top covers really helped them fit normally in different types of shoes. I decided I liked the highs better and exchanged the mediums for another pair, the exchange process was exactly as described and took no time at all. After a month of wearing them I noticed the pain I felt in the morning and throughout the day was going away, and after a month and a half I'm able to work and workout three times a day with no pain at all. Treadlabs insoles are a great product and they do what they say they do, they have changed my life for the better.
I developed plantar fasciitis over the last few years, a fairly minor case but it was annoying and I wanted to deal with it before it became severe. Foot doctor prescribed a night splint and recommended an insole. I used the night splint a few times but it didn't make much difference. After reading a lot of reviews I bought a Tread Labs insole. I felt immediate relief from the discomfort and almost five months later the pain from my heel spur is completely gone, even when I'm not wearing the shoes with the insoles. The build quality of this insole is superior and the replaceable top is a nice touch. I have no doubt that these things will outlast me, let alone my current shoes. They're more than worth the price.
Appreciate the flexibility of this team to allow exchanges and returns with no extra charge or hassle to ensure the fit and satisfaction are perfect. We are very pleased with the product and the company and will continue to purchase here when arch support products are needed. Thank you for your commitment to excellent customer service.
Tread Labs was great to deal with. I was unsure of which ones to buy, so I bought 2 different arch heights as suggested. Tried them both and sent back one set and received a prompt refund. The sizing was perfect using the chart on the website. I ended up keeping the medium arch height. After wearing them for a couple of days full time, they felt like old friends. They didn't require any break-in beyond that. They are holding up quite well, and you can't beat Tread Lab's service. The Strides have made my Plantar Fasciitis quite bearable. Between the Strides, stretching exercises and ice therapy, I am feeling much better. I made the right choice in buying inserts from Tread Labs. I guess you can tell that I am happy.
I have 2 pairs of custom orthotics made for casual and sport use. But both orthotics caused a pinch near my heel because of the hard plastic. After purchasing these stride orthotics, it has fixed this issue and helped me on my recovery. Best of all stride provides a orthotic for different types of shoes so im limited in anyway. A
