    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.

Relieved Chronic Iliotibial Band Syndrome 100%

7 August 2017
72 years old male with Chronic Left Iliotibial Band Syndrome. Unable to jog, since 2015. Lately, unable to row, jump rope, squat, deadlift or walk more than 2 miles. First day of use 28 July 2017. I took an intentionally hilly 2.4 mi test walk without a problem. Now, resuming deadlifts and squats, carefully. Optimistic about resuming all activities. Quite positively impressed. Hopefully, my overpronation issue will be completely resolved. Don't know why Tread Labs. orthotics aren't sold via Amazon Marketplace. Could not find with search on that site.

Great communication, great product!

Great communication, great product!

Pretty Great!

Very happy with the short stride, though I wish shipping to Canada was through different postal service. Like UPS or purolator, took forever to get to me and then I was charged a bunch of duty.

Awesome inserts!

Easy to order and very comfortable. I did have to order a shoe a half size larger, but, well worth it!!!

I wear the Stride Short

I wear the Stride Short in shoes that do not have a removable insole. I found that the medium arch worked better than the high arch. I wear the high arch size in shoes with a removable insole.
