Gloriously thin - in the front.

Reviewed by SA from Tennessee on Tuesday, January 13, 2015
I am very happy with these as there are thinnest insoles I have found and are ideal for tight shoes that can't afford to get more snug. I have not bothered with the oven yet and they are feeling good after two days of use.

I am typically a size 10.5 and ordered an 11. However, I should have gotten a size 10 probably. The heel cup area is too wide for some of my shoes, and due to its stiffness it will not easily fit into the boots I purchased them for. Also, I had to do extensive trimming off the the toe width in order to fit my shoes, hence I recommend ordering the smaller of the two if faced when the choice. That said, careful trimming is more than worth the time... and you can always trim more, but you can't trim less!

Also note that these have very little cushion whatsoever, which is not bad. Cushioned insoles are a dime a dozen, but these stand apart from the rest.

While this is a very thin sole in the front, the arch and heel cup is slightly thicker, which will add some lift to the heel. If they already have a bit of a heel on them (dress shoes or boots) then just be aware that the heel-toe drop will be affected. Though out of all the aftermarket insoles I have tried, these are the least extreme.
