Every time I buy a new pair of cycling shoes the first thing I do is remove the insoles that came with the shoe and replace it with a Sof Sole Arch Insole. I found Sof Sole insoles several years ago when I had plantar fasciitis. I tried at least six different brands of insoles that did little to help my situation and when I saw a display for Sof Sole at a sporting goods store they looked like they were worth trying. The relief they brought was incredible! I no longer suffer from plantar fasciitis, but now every pair of shoes I own has a pair of Sof Sole insoles inside (even my dress shoes).
You don’t have to have plantar fasciitis to benefit from these inserts! They have a wonderful footbed that cushions better than any other insole I’ve tried. They are also anti-bacterial and anti-microbial which means they have great odor protection.
In the past three years I’ve purchased at least a dozen pair of these insoles. I’ve cycled over 6,000 miles in the past twelve months and Sof Sole’s were with me every step (or peddle stroke) of the way. The past few weeks I’ve had to ride on many humid days when the heat index was over 105 degrees and these insoles never held moisture.
Sof Sole insoles are available at several nationwide stores, such as The Finish Line, The Sports Authority, and Dick’s Sporting Goods. If you don’t have any of these stores in your area you can buy the insoles on Amazon.com. The retail price for Sof Sole Arch Insoles is $20. If you don’t have a high arch you need to try one of Sof Sole’s other insoles. They all come with a one-year guarantee, but I doubt if you will ever need it (they are really well made).
