    From Dr. Scholl's to the super premium brands for elite runners, there are lots out there.

    What have you used that you can recommend? Currently I'm using Spenco Polysorb--Total Support. They feel the best so far----but I'm always looking.

    These insoles cost $35 and are of course way too expensive for the materials involved........BUT they have turned my old runners new again so it was worth it to me.

    So what do you like?

    HELP. I gotta believe someone here has tried insoles for his athletic shoes.

    Has anyone tried SuperFeet. They seem to be featured in all the running stores.........but they also seem very HARD. I can't imagine them being comfortable. Any clues?

    Super Feet work well for me; but pick the right ones for what you do - there are several versions.

    Which insoles will work for you depends on your feet and what they need, what you do, and where you run. I mostly run on dirt, and I need firm support, so the harder insoles are great.

    If you have problems. you might do well to do to a good orthopod and look into custom orthotics. They can cost a bundle, but they're really worth it, if you need them.

    these things are a blessing for me! i use em for regular stuff, gym and football no more foot problems since! helps me because i had flat feet due to collapsed arches, they work sooooo much better than the stupid custom orthothics i got from my physio clinic

    I walk/run 12-15 miles both Saturday and Sunday mornings...and about 5 miles daily during the week.

    Nothing hurts except the ball/forefoot area which suffers from friction. I'd love to find a cushioned or gelled insole for that area.

    Most seem to be made to cushion the arch and heel area.

    Thanks Guys for the tips.
