Close fitting shoes? Sore feet? Tread Labs can help.

Stride Short orthotic insoles are the perfect solution for arch support in shoes that do not have removable inserts. They offer the same level of doctor recommended support as all Tread Labs insoles and are the perfect remedy for plantar fasciitis and other foot ailments.

  • Relieves and prevents Plantar Fasciitis – Relieve foot pain at the source with the firm support that podiatrists recommend.
  • A fit as individual as you are - Whether your aches are super high or completely flat, 4 distinct arch heights guarantee a precise fit.

Stride Short insoles feature 2mm low-profile top covers that do not extend under the ball of the foot. They are perfect for deck shoes, women’s flats and dressier men’s shoes. Enjoy the comfort that comes with effective arch support in all your shoes.

  • Best for footwear without removable insoles – Thin, open cell polyurethane foam provides rear foot comfort without bulk. Designed to take minimal room in your shoes, Stride Thin is great for loafers, ballet flats, and other slip-on shoes that do not have removable footbeds.
  • Shoes stay fresh longer - PURE, silver based antimicrobial treatment kills odor causing bacteria.

Getting the Most from Your Insoles

Stride Short insoles are designed to provide comfort enhancing support in shoes that traditionally do not offer much support. No longer do you need to wear running shoes 24/7 in order to get the support you need.

Stride Short insoles will not need to be trimmed. Slip them into your shoes and feel the immediate difference they make in your comfort and alignment. Order with confidence with our Million Mile Guarantee. If for any reason you need to exchange or return your insoles, simply mail them back to us for a full refund. We’ll even pay the return shipping.

Wear your new insoles for a couple of hours the first day, increasing slowly over time. If your feet are not used to firm support, it may take a few days to get used to them. This is how your new insoles should feel:

  • Supportive- Initially, a supportive orthotic may feel aggressive. After a few days, it should feel like it has always been there, supporting your every step.
  • Comfortable- Your foot should feel consistent contact through all parts of your arch. There should be no uncomfortable pressure points or hot spots.
  • Functional- Unlike soft, foam insoles, Tread Labs insoles support the bones of your feet, aligning your ankles, knees and hips for a more efficient stride and improved alignment.

Finally a fix after 15 years

I’ve seen doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, tried the Good Feet store, OTC inserts, all kinds of different high-end shoes, and searched for solutions on the internet to my plantar fasciitis & other foot pain, but I finally found a reliable & an affordable product made in the USA by a company that stands by its product. Zero foot pain. These inserts worked immediately.

Just what my KNEE needed!

I’ve been suffering with knee pain for nearly a year. Whenever standing and shifting weight to one leg, my knee would begin to ache amongst pain while doing other things. I ordered the medium support and almost my first day normal standing improved. I’m really diligent in wearing them, but am concerned what I will do this summer with sandals. While they are working I regret not buying two sizes and then try both to see which feels better. I’m not wanting to buy, try, return, buy and only to realize the first size was the right one. When I get my next pair that will be the route I go.

Stride short wide sherry boat shoes

Sizing for length size good but should have them made for different widths, moves side to side. Arch height good, no problem breaking in, can not rate durability only had a few months.

love these!

These are terrific. I have flat feet and use custom orthotics when running and dancing. These non-customs give me much needed support in casual and dress shoes at a much more reasonable cost.
Using Treadlabs guidance, I first ordered the low arch version, then exchanged them (easily) for the medium arch.

My only regret is that I waited

From the first day I wore these the change has been remarkable. I woke up the next day to feet that didn't ache when I walked downstairs. I wish I would have ordered these sooner. I am already planning out my next pair. I ordered the stride shorts for my casual shoes and will probably be getting another. The fit was true to size as well.
