Just received a new pair of Brooks Adrenaline running shoes and even after a comfortable few days using them I put the Pace Thin Soles in and the support and comfort levels increased and lasted all day long with VERY limited discomfort. These are truly excellent inserts and compliment my other Tread Labs supports in my other shoes. Not inexpensive but excellent nonetheless!
My heel pain is gone!!!
These insoles are very comfortable, with no break-in at all, and an amazing value for the price.
My feet don't hurt at the end of the day anymore! I wish I had found and purchased insoles for my flat feet ages ago. They feel fantastic in the shoes I use for work and I will probably buy another just for my athletic shoes.
I am waiting for them in mail. I had to return because the arches were not high enough. You sent me a return label so now I am waiting for the new ones to arrive. I will be happy to write a report once I use them.
I have very high arches and had hope that the Treadlab X high insoles would save me from having to purchase expensive custom made insoles. Unfortunately, the X High Arch insoles are not much higher than some of the off-the shelf insoles which are less expensive that Treadlab especially with the exchange rate from AUD to USD. The insoles are soft and the size was perfect without needing to be cut down.

I am flat footed with little to no arch, and was having heel pain. I also deal with overpronation. The insoles help to keep my ankle aligned. When I do forget to wear these in my shoes, my heel pain returns. Thank you Tread Labs for keeping me aligned.
I’ve worn these for 3 months now. I work retail and on my feet up to 8 hours. Plus, on concrete floor. These have been super really make the difference in my day’s work. My feet and legs thank you. I will be getting another pair for my running shoes. Thank you Tread Labs for a great product.
The quality of the insoles is excellent. I bought the Xhigh, because I had problems with numbing of my big toes after backpacking trips, caused by striking the metarsal joint repeatedly, (forefoot strike) according to the podiatrist. That 80km trip I used superfeet insoles which had normal arch support but was no where near enough (did not come close to my foot) and my feet were exhausted after only 5 hours. The doctor recommended "dancer's pad" to spread out the force, which is ok but not quite enough.
I bought the xhigh arch because I have high arches. They might be a touch too agressive even for me, I can feel them close to the joint (I am still wearing them a few hours a day to get used to them) but I do find that they take the excess striking pressure off my MTR joint, so I need a long hike to really test this out, to verify that these xhigh arches won't bruise.
I do find that I tend to walk now on the outer edge insole heel. I will try trimming them properly to adjust.
Is this what it feels like to not have flat feet? I can’t go back to wearing shoes without them. I stand on my feet all day for work. My feet are happy.
The short Stride insoles don’t stay put in my shoes (they slide forward). I would glue them in, but then I couldn’t move them between pairs of shoes.
As advertised, keeps the plantar fasciitis in check.
Took a bit of getting used to, but I expected that, they certainly help with my high arch feet.
Well work the purchase
I absolutely loved my new Tread Labs for the first 2-3 weeks. I have arthritis in my feet and bone spurs on top of that. They were an answer to prayer. About week 3-4 it was like they went flat. I have no idea what had happened, but I was so impressed with them the first week until I ordered a second pair. I haven't used them yet, but hope they won't do what the first pair did.
The insoles are comfortable with the right support
Don’t know why they work and other inserts don’t but they work great
I have very flat feet and been suffering from a severe case of plantar fasciitis while training for a Half Ironman triathalon. I tried semi-custom insoles where you make an imprint in a box and send them off to be made, I tried Sofsole inserts, Samurai insoles (had tried Superfeet in the past)....nothing was working. Kept searching and found the pace insoles for my running shoes. I had been off for almost 2 months with pain and within 2 weeks I was back to running again (combined with sleeping in a night brace, foot rolling and icing). These insoles played a MAJOR role in that happening. Was so pleased I bought another pair for my everyday shoes so I didn't have to move them back and forth and also bought the Dash Thin for my cycling shoes. DON'T HESITATE! 3 different options, in 3 different styles with 4 different arch heights - best I've found!!!
I followed arch height advice from Tread Labs website and purchased Ramble short insoles in High Arch. The left foot High Arch insole height was not supportive enough and was causing pain the same as OTC arch supports. I ordered a set of Extra High Arch insoles and used it on my left foot. The Extra High was to much for my right foot. I have an Extra High insole on the left foot and High insole on the right foot. Now, my arches are happy. It's to bad you cannot custom order one of each for a few dollars more. I am stuck with two left High arch supports I cannot use.
Insole and top cover quality is very good.
They help alot
My knee pain stopped with days.
I expected an insole that supported my arch and foot, this does neither. I was also looking for something that helped correct underpronation, no help there either
