Order insoles in the same size as the shoes they will go in.
Choose between low, medium, high and extra high arch heights by comparing your wet footprint to the chart below.
|What Does Your Wet Footprint Look Like?||Describe Your Arch||Your Best Tread Labs Insole Height|
|My arch is flat when I stand or sit.||Low|
|My arch is flat when I stand but appears when I sit.||Medium|
|My arch is close to but doesn't touch the ground.||Medium|
|My arch is high off the ground when I stand.||High|
|No one has higher arches than me!||Extra high|

I bought these for cycling because they are described as "performance" and I want to perform well.
I made the mistake of buying the highest arch offering and one size too big. I'm so used to supports that give or flex too much that I always buy the highest. I also like support toward the front of the foot and so size up. This was unnecessary and I look forward to remedying my folly. The carbon fiber is quite stiff so there is hardly any collapse. The heel cup and side support are not as high or contoured as some insoles, but the arch structure/shape and very subtle lateral arch are spot-on.
Proper arch support is what these insoles provide. Comfort and performance go hand in hand. Grateful tread labs get it.
Better than my custom orthodics. I ordered the medium and they fit perfectly. The carbon appears to be high quality. The dash thin insole is also high quality. I ordered an extra Set set of dash thin insoles to have when the originals wear out.
I have been looking for an insole that would offer more arch support to take some of the pressure off the ball of my foot while cycling. These insoles are stiff and efficient for cycling and with the metatarsal button are keeping my feet significantly more comfortable on longer rides.
I got these after the soles of my feet were in excruciating pain after my Peloton rides. I bought these and what a different. I am able to enjoy the ride with stronger performance. A must have!
just what i needed. i’ve had custom insoles for so much more $ but these do the trick at a far better price point.
