Spenco has expanded their line up of the Spenco Total Support Insoles to include a Thin & Max version. The insoles of most interest (to me) are the Spenco Total Support Thin Insoles as the selection of a true thin orthotic arch support with superior cushioning and a flexible arch support is limited. -Being that I wear a tighter fitting casual shoe on a daily basis I thought the Thin's would be a great place to start.
The Spenco Total Support Thin Insoles are a condensed version of the Original Total Support Insoles with the same polysorb arch to heel support system and tri-pod cushioning that the Total Supports are known for.
The Total Support Thins differ in two disctinct points:
- -20% Thinner than the Original Polysorb Total Support Insoles
- -Flexible Arch Support that is ideal for Flat Feet & Low to Neutral Arches (however, suitable for the high arched foot too).
The Total Support Thin Insoles are suitable for a multiple of shoe types:

In all reality, they are the best orthotic arch support on the market for those seeking more cushioning comfort than the traditional rigid orthotics in a tight fitting shoe.
The Total Support Thin Insoles fit nicely into my leather casual shoes and certainly do not take up a lot of space - I have plenty of toe room versus when I wore the original total support insoles (see review
) and the toe box region of my shoe was a little tight (to the feel) at first. From a cushioning standpoint, I noticed very little change -despite being @20% thinner. These insoles are ideal for cleated, cycling, and/or any tight shoe when an orthotic is needed.
The semi-flexible arch support of the Spenco Total Support Thin Insoles is very nice -definitely a breath of fresh air for those that cannot wear the rigid orthotic arch supports (see at all our Orthotic Arch Supports).
Having a neutral arched foot, I noticed very little upward pressure (rigidity) on my arch; while at the same time, the orthotic maintained support without allowing my arch to over collapse. The Insoles are great for all foot arch types -especially for tighter shoes; however, they are ideal for flat-feet or those with low and neutral arches who want a bit of cushioning in the arch support too.
Over-all, The Spenco Total Support Thin Insoles are a welcome addition to the Spenco Insoles line-up. They fill a much need void in the orthotic arch support arena where cushioning comfort and arch support for tight fitting shoes does not always go hand in hand.
