    Arch Height

    Tread Labs insoles are available in 4 arch heights. (Except for the smallest sizes).

    • Low Arch Height – Ideal for people with flat feet, our lowest arch height is excellent for feet that have full contact with the ground.
    • Medium Arch Height - Our most popular arch height. If you have not worn insoles previously, this is the place to start.
    • High Arch Height – Our second most popular insole, this height is best for people who leave a "C" shape footprint on a wet sidewalk.
    • Extra High Arch Height – Few companies offer this level of support. If you haven't found insoles high enough, these are for you.

    If you are unsure about fit, feel free to call us (781) 435-0662, or order 2 pairs with different arch heights. Keep the pair that feels best, we’ll pay the return shipping.

    Tread Labs Fit Guide


    Our insoles are available in 3 lengths for men and 3 for women. These sizes are based on your most common shoe size. If you are between sizes, it is best to go with a smaller size. 

  • Walk Better. Feel Better. Live Better.

    Enjoy the comfort of Tread Labs insoles in all your shoes. Shorter and thinner than regular Stride insoles, Stride Short insoles are the perfect arch supports for shoes that do not have removable insoles. Give your feet the support and comfort they deserve - in all your shoes. Reap the benefits of life in balance and alignment.

    Many non-athletic shoes do not have removable insoles. These include ballet flats, loafers, boat shoes, many men's dress casual shoes and women's flats.  Enjoy great support every day with Stride Short insoles.

    Getting the most from your insoles.

    Stride insoles are designed to replace the generic insoles supplied with your shoes. They work best in sport and casual shoes that have removable insoles.

    1. If you are unsure of your arch height, order 2 pairs and keep the best fitting pair. Shipping is free both ways.
    2. Wear them for a couple of hours the first day. Increase with time. Great insoles feel:
      • Supportive - Your foot should feel consistent contact through all parts of your arch. There should be no uncomfortable pressure points.
      • Comfortable - Initially, a supportive orthotic may feel aggressive. After a few days, it should feel like it has always been there; not having it in will feel hollow and unsupportive.

    If you have questions, please email us or call (781) 425-0662. We're here to help.

Stride Short

Great customer service, both orthotics were painful, though

They have great customer service, but both the extra high and high insole were painful for my feet. It felt like the arch support was too forward. I bought the 8-9.5 size, my foot is size 9.5. My doctor told me I had high arches so I thought these would help

Very high quality

These are clearly very high quality, but I can't add too many specifics because my podiatrist wanted me to try his custom orthotics instead.


Stride Short


I bought the short stride to wear with my shoes that do not have removable inserts. It feels a little uncomfortable to put them on top of another pair of insoles. I also have the regular stride, which took me awhile to break in. I bought the high arch in both purchases. I run my heels over to the outside on my shoes badly. It’s genetic. I didn’t think I would have any problems with the short stride, since I was already wearing stride. But OMG, in the beginning of wearing the short stride, just like in the beginning of wearing regular stride, every part of my legs, the calves, knees, thighs, and hips had hurt like the dickens! I haven’t read in the reviews where as anyone else has had this problem. (??) But once I had gotten use to the insoles they are golden! :) This product has helped my plantar fasciitis tremendously!! I have bought many, many, MANY different insoles over the years and none have worked as well as these.
