Just two weeks ago, we made our 'over-the-weekend' move to our new warehouse facility at The Insole Store.com and I had this suspicion that I would be running all over the place helping set-up shelves, place shoe insoles, and generalized back and force as we scrambled to get organized and ready to ship ASAP to our customers Monday morning. I thought this would be a perfect time to re-visit one of my favorite shoe insoles (a sort of hybrid orthotic arch support and cushioned shoe insole), the Sof Sole Airr Orthotic Insoles, as Sof Sole had recently made a slight product modification to it and it's sister insole (the Sof Sole Airr Insoles). For standing on concrete all day, the Sof Sole Airr Insoles and Airr Orthotic's offer the best in cushioning and foot pain relief!
Let me explain the difference between these two shoe insoles. The Sof Sole Airr Performance Insoles are a relatively flat cushion insole while the Sof Sole Airr Orthotic Performance Insoles are the same cushion insole with a semi-flexible orthotic arch support ideally for a flat foot, low or neutral arch. I am a neutral arched foot with no foot conditions, however, I choose the Sof Sole Airr Orthotic's as I enjoy the extra arch support which (with these insoles) are very flexible and not rigid or hard at all.
Back in the Fall of 2012 the manufacturer of Sof Sole Insoles, Implus, made a modification to both the Airr and Airr Orthotic Insoles by making them a bit slimmer (in the heel and toe region) in depth so that they would fit more shoes. The Sof Sole Airr Orthotic Insoles went from a thickness of 3/8 of an inch to 5/16th of an inch at the heel, received (a very unnoticeable) raised heel cushion (that looks like a button), and maintained the same 1/4 inch thickness at the ball of foot and toe region while the Sof Sole Airr's made the same changes but the ball of foot/toe region trimmed down to 3/8 inch thickness. I doubt most customers will notice a difference.
For me the Sof Sole Airr Orthotic Insoles are fantastic. For the last 2 weeks, I have been running all over handling new logistics issues and streamlining processes necessary to efficiently help our customers find the best insole for their feet while making sure we get the order shipped out the door ASAP. Working 10-14 hours as of late and mostly on my feet, I whole-heartily recommend the Sof Sole Airr and Airr Orthotic Insoles. I have experienced no

foot pain -not even at the end of the day. What I particularly like about the Sof Sole Insoles is that they offer the best in cushioning specifically in the regions most needed -in fact I don't know of another insole that is similar. Sof Sole incorporates a built-in gel metatarsal pad for 'the best' in ball of foot comfort and uses their revolutionary SKYDEX twin impact Air Impact technology in the heel to not only absorb shock and weight but to create kinetic energy in reflecting it back into the foot for positive momentum during one's stride. For those looking for sweat and odor protection, the insoles offer a Microban antimicrobial treated COOL MAX top coat fabric that is specifically designed to wick away moisture.
I tend to stand on the balls of my feet so these insoles are a favorite as they offer the best in metatarsal padding in a high density form. For those looking to reduce heel pain, they are a great alternative too. As you can see, the Sof Sole Airr Orthotic Insoles fit in my converse shoes -so while they are thick -they still fit.
So if your looking for work insoles that are cushion insole's, the Sof Sole Airr and Airr Orthotic Insoles are a great choice. Check out the Sof Sole Airr Orthotic Insoles at The Insole Store.com today!
i have wide feet with collapsed arches and was getting tired of spending hundreds of dollars on insoles from the doctor and then i had another doctor tell me the only insoles he recommends are the superfeet wide green insoles so i tried them and so far so good and i'm gonna order another pair so i don't have to keep changing them from shoe to work boot everyday.
I got the Sole Ultra Softecs to help with Plantar Fasciitis in my hiking shoes. They help a lot, after a day on my feet, I can get up and walk the next day without hobbling. The custom molding is pretty easy too.
I am a lifeguard so I need to have great flip flops that can handle a little water. I also need something that will comfy even after 8 hours of standing on a tile deck. I was using crocs before I found out about these. After 8 hours in crocs my knees were super sore. After 8 hours in my Oofos Sandals my knees don't hurt at all and my feet are much more happy. I also love the color of these.
Check out our choices of Cool Summer Insoles below...
The Insole Store.com received a new product from one of our Manufacturers -Spenco Medical Insoles a little over a year ago. I will tell you that we had our doubts with the new Spenco Polysorb FLOW-Cool Performance Insoles as they claimed to dissipate heat and keep one's feet cool. After-all, That's a pretty hefty claim!
For time to time, we've taken calls from our customers, whom are dealing with warm sweaty feet or perhaps even suffer from a hot-foot neuropathy. Naturally, we suggest that if one suffers with a persistent hot foot that they should seek the medical opinion of a Podiatrist. Other than maintaining a healthy diet, regular exercise regimine, and proper sleep, one's options to cure the problem is limited; unless, a medical route is taken.
So when one of our regular customers, Lou Anne, called in to place another insole order, I took the opportunity to ask her if a solution (with her doctor) was found for her burning-foot neuropathy? Her response was no; yet, she was optimist that a solution would be found with continuous testing.
I mentioned how the Spenco Polysorb FLOW-Cool Insoles claimed to reduce heat with a blended EVA-Foam Based Insole that had a Magnesium Oxide material embedded for natural heat dissipation in the shoe insert. That it incorporated performance contours and breath-holes that naturally circulated airflow with the movement (gait) of one's foot with air-channeling technology that aided in reducing heat build-up.
Lou Anne was open to trying the Spenco FLOW-Cool Insoles so we agreed to ship her a free pair with her regular order of shoe insoles. After a couple weeks of use, I am happy to report that Lou Anne called in with good news. Not only did the Flow-Cool Insoles work -but she wanted to order another two pair of them. She stated that she did feel a big

improvement in the temperature of her shoes and feet.
Perhaps, we've found a solution for your feet too. The Spenco FLOW-Cool Insolesare recommended for those seeking to reduce heat
build-up and keeping their feet cool -while at the same time provide added support and shock absorption from the daily rigors that our feet take.
