Tread Labs Introduces Ramble, Pace and Dash Insoles

Tread Labs Introduces Ramble, Pace and Dash Insoles

Say hello to Ramble, Pace and Dash – three new series of insoles from Tread Labs. Our new expanded product assortment is an evolution of the Stride insole. It is designed to meet the needs of 3 distinct customers. Those who are looking for comfort insoles, pain relief insoles, or performance insoles.

Quick Summary ---

  • Tread Labs has created 3 new series of insoles for 3 different customer needs - comfort, pain relief and performance.
  • Each insole is available in regular, short and thin versions for a precise fit in all kinds of footwear.
  • This product evolution means increased comfort, a better fit, quieter construction, 4 arch heights in ALL sizes and a range of prices. Athletes looking for a performance edge will love the Dash series, featuring carbon fiber insoles designed for speed and performance.
  • While our insoles have changed, our values have not. The 2-part system, Million Mile Guarantee, biomechanical focus and personal customer service remain at the heart of everything we do.

Insoles Designed For Comfort, Pain Relief And Performance

People come to Tread Labs looking for insoles to solve one of three problems:

  • Comfort - Foot discomfort robs people of energy, especially after a long day on their feet.
  • Pain Relief - Many types of pain start with the feet. Plantar Fasciitis is the most common, but other types of foot, knee, hip and back pain can be relieved with arch support insoles.
  • Performance - Athletes want every possible advantage to maximize performance. They want the lightest, fastest, thinnest, most powerful insoles to help them compete at the top of their game.

Insole firmness increases from comfort to pain relief and from pain relief to performance. If you’re looking for comfort and pain relief, you’d be best suited with Pace - our pain relief insole. However, if you’re an athlete looking for performance, and you have comfort or pain issues, Dash insoles are your best choice.

Introducing Ramble, Pace and Dash Insoles

  • Comfort Series -  Ramble Insoles – $55 - Featuring arch supports that are 25% softer than our old Stride insoles, Ramble is all about comfort. The top covers are made with softer foam for a more accommodating experience. If comfort is your highest priority, Ramble is perfect for you.

    • Pain Relief Series - Pace Insoles – $65 - Pace is the evolution of our Stride insole. Focused on pain relief, Pace has just the right amount of firmness to relieve pain from plantar fasciitis and other foot, ankle, knee and hip problems. Podiatrists recommend a firm insole to cure pain. Pace delivers.

    • Performance Series - Dash Insoles – $105 - Dash insoles are not for everyone. 100% carbon fiber construction makes them more expensive. They are wafer thin, uber-light and mega-strong. They fit into cycling shoes, soccer cleats and other low volume shoes exceptionally well. They are the firmest of all our insoles which means you should take extra care to get the right size and arch height. Dash’s firmness works best when the fit is dialed in.

      The Evolution of Tread Labs Insoles

      We’re grateful for all the feedback – good and not so good - we get from our customers. Both help us improve our insoles. As we designed Ramble, Pace and Dash, we dug deep into everything our customers have told us to make them even better.

      • 3D Molded Top Covers – Our new molded top covers fit the contours of your feet better. Their tapered edges improve how they fit inside your shoes. The molded groove at the heel makes changing or swapping top covers super easy.
      • Improved Sizing – New insoles are sized for each shoe size, rather than having 1 insole cover 2 shoe sizes. Now, our “Flawless Fit” is more precise than ever before. Plus, it all but eliminates the need to trim insoles to fit your shoes. In addition, we now offer high and extra-high arch heights in every size we make, improving support for customers with smaller feet.
      • Quieter – We’ve added texture to the bottom of our arch supports which keeps your insoles quiet and well behaved. Nobody likes insoles that remind you of their existence.
      • Better Value – We have grown and that means we are now able to offer better value for your hard-earned dollar. Comfort (Ramble) and Pain Relief (Pace) insoles are less expensive than the Stride insoles they replace.
      • Insole Kits – If you just love a bargain, you’ll love our insole kits. Swap top covers so that your insole fits in different kinds of shoes. Each kit includes one pair of arch supports with all three top cover styles (regular, short and thin). Kits are discounted and the savings are substantial.

        Some Things We’ll Never Change

        • 2 Part System – All Tread Labs insoles are made in two parts. The unique molded arch supports are guaranteed for life (Our Million Mile Guarantee). The interchangeable top covers can be easily replaced, as often as you need.
        • Firm Support – Though we now offer a broader range of firmness, all our insoles are firm enough to change the way your body communicates with the ground. All Tread Labs insoles feature a molded arch support to optimize alignment. We believe that soft foam insoles do not have the power or durability to create lasting benefit.
        • Systems Approach – Our new insole collection is organized in groups to address your needs and the shoes you wear. This makes insole selection logical and easy. Regular, Short and Thin insoles are available in every series to dial in the fit of all your shoes.
        • Customer-Centric Approach – In today’s hyper-efficient world, customer service is sometimes neglected. Not at Tread Labs. Humans answer the phones. A 90-day no-questions return policy and free shipping ensure that we reach our goal - exceeding your expectations.

        What's Happening With Stride Insoles?

        Our trusty Stride series of insoles (Stride, Stride Short, Stride Thin) have been reduced to $45 and will be available until they are sold out. We have a generous amount of replacement top covers and when those run out, our Ramble, Pace and Dash top covers will fit on older Stride arch supports. 

        Exceptional Recommendations

        If you understand the simple logic of our collection, you can anticipate a few cross-overs in product selection that make sense.

        • A very small person may find that Ramble, our softest insole is firm enough to cure their plantar fasciitis.
        • A really big person may find that the extra firm support of Dash best meets their pain relief needs.
        • A woman with close fitting ballet flats may prefer the ultra-low profile that carbon fiber brings to Dash insoles.

        In all cases, if you have any questions, we're here to help. Give us a call or send us an email so we can make sure you get the perfect insole for you.
