Insoles & Beyond Review & Giveaway

Insoles & Beyond offers insoles for all of your needs - including arch support insoles, orthotics for flat feet, and inserts for plantar fasciitis and more. They also offer some very competitive prices on their site.  I love how you can shop by BRAND or by NEED on their website - very helpful.  Insoles & Beyond is a family-owned company and realizes that foot health impacts the quality of life - especially for athletes.  Insoles and Beyond is here to help you find solutions to your foot pain, whether you need arch support inserts to relieve ankle and knee pain, running shoe insoles to get rid of shin splints, or plantar fasciitis insoles so that you don’t wake up with heel pain again. 

They offer a variety of insoles for running.  They suggest the currexSole RunPros or the Sof Sole Fit for runners.  


I was sent the currexSole RunPro Med.  The insole is available in six sizes for both men and women.  I wear a women's size 10 and was sent a size large.  These insoles are for running, walking and triathlon.The size large fits womens sizes 8.5-10, but you can cut the insoles to fit your exact shoe size and within your running shoe.  Pretty amazing.  These retail online for $49.95, but you can take 10% off all orders over $75! - Promo Code: newyear10

I've used insoles on and off over the years - and had good experiences and bad experiences.  Usually they just seem to add "bulk" to my running shoe and leave me less room in my pair of running shoes.  These felt great, though I'm not sure I would use them for every run.  They cushioned and cradled my foot, and didn't add too much bulk.  Although, my shoe felt a little bulkier than normal - and my footstrike did feel different (like is supposed to!).  I look forward to trying them out on some longer training runs this spring.  I felt like they added a serious bounce to my step.

currexSole RunPro Med Description:

The award winning currexSole RUNPRO is the ultimate performance insole for running, walking or triathlon. Wear it in classic running shoes or let ‘em help you to step forward into minimalistic shoes.  Every CurrexSole insole model comes in three variations - high, medium, and low. 

Whether you need orthotics for flat feet, insoles for low, neutral or high arches, are a overpronator or supinator, currexSole's Dynamic Arch Technology will cradle your arch, distribute pressure evenly, absorb energy upon impact and release energy like a spring upon launch.  Not every foot is created the same.  CurrexSole has something for every athlete.

Replace the foam inserts with better insoles for running. One of the most common requests we get is for advice on insoles for running shoes. If you have been a runner for any length of time, you have probably realized – or been told – that you will need to replace the foam insoles that come in your running shoes with better insoles for running. It’s important to start with the best running shoes you can afford, but don’t stop there. Investing in a good set of running shoe insoles isn’t a luxury – it’s an absolute must for your health. 

Insoles for running shoes are important during high impact activities. The importance of running insoles can’t be understated. The human foot has 26 bones, all fitting together almost like a puzzle in a series of plates and joints that work together with tendons and ligaments to create a fully faceted piece of biomechanical awesomeness. Think about all the different ways your feet can move, bend, stretch, grip, tighten, flatten, and adjust. One of the most remarkable attributes of the foot’s structural makeup is the arch, which is what allows the foot to do so much of what it does. Protecting the arch, especially during high-impact activity, is critical for short- and long-term foot health. 

Consider running insoles for plantar fasciitis. Runners can often experience a painful condition known as plantar fasciitis.  A great way to combat plantar fasciitis is with arch support, which all of our running shoe insoles provide.  Save yourself significant amounts of pain and medical expense with the simple purchase of a running insoles for plantar fasciitis. 

Get your running shoe insoles before you pound the pavement. High-impact athletics are sometimes called “pounding the pavement,” and they get that moniker for a reason. Running (as well as related activities like jumping and skipping) puts a lot of pressure on various points of the foot, requiring it to move and adjust at a rapid pace. When the delicate structure of the arch isn’t supported correctly, the heel isn’t stabilized, and alignment isn’t achieved, you aren’t just risking pain and injury – you are virtually guaranteeing it. Protect your feet with insoles that provide the right amount of stability, arch support, shock absorption, and cushioning.

  1. I like that they have different arch height sizes and that the inserts can easily be cut down to fit my shoes since not all shoes are made the same
