Athletic & Sports Insoles
Athletic or sports insoles are often more technical in their design than other insoles. These are insoles engineered for the functions of a specific sport/activity and the needs of an individual involved in that activity. For example, runners typically require good heel & forefoot padding as well as a foot support system to assist with their heel-to-toe (gait) movement. Cyclists require a stiff and compact insole that will work in tight-fitting footwear. Skiers, snowboarders, and other winter sports activities require an insole that promotes heat retention and which will be comfortable in bulky footwear. Hockey & ice skaters need an insole designed specifically to fit into their skates. To browse insoles by activity, start at our Insoles by Activity page.
Gel insoles are best known for their excellent shock absorption properties. While gel tends to be heavier than other insole materials, those who perform high-impact activities such as running, walking, and court sports tend to prefer insoles featuring a gel construction or gel padding. This is because the gel will absorp much of the impact shock from these activities, helping decrease foot fatigue and increase energy return.

Warm & Wool Insoles
Wool insoles are loved for their insulation properties. These insoles will help regulate and maintain the temperature of your feet, whether in the hot or cold. Wool insoles will help keep feet cool during the summer, and many golf enthusiasts enjoy using wool insoles in their golf shoes. Wool insoles will also help keep feet warm in the winter, and make great additions to hiking boots and casual shoes. Similarly, warm insoles are designed to keep feet… well… warm. Many wool insoles are also considered “warm insoles” despite wool insoles being usable year-round. In addition, however, warm insoles include heated insoles that will keep feet toasty in even the coldest weather conditions. Check out our Wool Insoles and Warm Insoles pages for a selection of products to suit those needs.
All insoles will conform to your foot over time as you wear them. Heat-moldable insoles, however, are designed to speed up this process. By heating the insoles for a short time in the oven and then standing on the insoles while they cool, you are able to mold the insoles to your unique foot shape instantly. Anyone desiring a truly customized fit as quickly as possible should consider purchasing a heat-moldable insole. A full list of our heat-moldable insoles can be found on our Heat Moldable Insoles page.
Heavy Duty Insoles
If you work in the construction or industrial fields, you need an insole that can stand up to the rugged conditions of your job. Heavy duty insoles are designed to do just that. Our Industrial & Work Insoles page has a full list of heavy-duty insoles to meet your needs.
Memory Foam Insoles
Memory foam is incredibly soft and helps retain the shape of your foot over time. As such, it’s popular with those seeking a soft layer of cushioning with their insoles. Visit our Memory Foam Insoles page to see our selection of memory foam insoles.
High Heel Insoles
Wearing high heels can be a painful task, and it’s not easy to find an insole that will work in most high-heeled footwear. For a selection of slender, low-profile inserts that work for high heels, visit our High Heel Inserts page.
Kid’s insoles are specifically designed to support a child’s foot, and are offered in a full range of orthotic and cushioned options. We have a full list of child-suitable insoles on our Kid’s Insoles page.
Orthotic Sandals & Footwear
We offer a wide variety of sandals, slippers, shoes, and slides that feature built-in orthotic support. This is useful for situations when you either do not want to use your removable insole (such as when wearing sandals at the beach) or when you cannot use your removable insole (such as in dress shoes, which often do not come with a removable insole). Orthotic footwear allows you to maintain proper foot support without the hassle of needing to switch your insoles to each new shoe you wear. Be sure to check out our Orthotic Footwear and Orthotic Sandals pages for a full product lineup.
