So I’ve been having some troubles with my knees after a Disney injury. I really wish it was more exciting, but it isn’t. The orthopedic Dr. that I went to suggested that I get some Superfeet Green Premium Insoles. I looked around and picked up a pair at REI (since I wanted them right now).
I found it interesting that while many of the people said they loved them, some of the other comments were:
- Takes a long time to break in
- The arch is too high / it feels out of place (even a FAQ on the company’s website)
- They are too hard and don’t have any cushioning
I usually wear Merrill shoes. Dress, and everyday shoes. So I went to REI and pulled out the insole and put these in. Honestly, I couldn’t tell much of a difference. Not sure if that was because the Merrill’s already have high arch support or what. But with the few comments I did read I was expecting something extraordinary.
So these are a recommend. The got me through a whirlwind tour of NYC, and I honestly didn’t know I had them in there. I do think they are doing some good though, because some of my knee pain is going away. Though, I am doing quite a few other things to rehab it, so this may just be incidental.
By the way, they do have some try-out pairs at REI so you can put them in your shoe and see which size you will need.
Also, mine do squeak a bit, so I guess I’ll be throwing some powder in there to alleviate it.
