I often look for products to review. Sometimes I contact a company and get a sample, other times the company sends me a sample. A while back I was sent some new insoles from Sorbothane.
I gave one pair to Will, a friend who has been battling plantar fasciitis. He still wears them and likes them. He told me they were, “Soft and cushy with good support. I haven’t seen a nicer insole.” He also said he liked them because they don’t soak up water and sweat.
Another pair went to Denise Jones. She has problems with cushioning on the bottom of her feet and welcomes the insoles to try. She reported back, “The two pair of Sorbothane Insoles you sent me have been the most comfortable inserts I have tried thus far. I wear them every day in my work shoes (after they were trimmed). They are the ‘Sorbolite Comfort Soles’ in my work shoes. I love them. Sadly, they have not cured my feet, but they do make them more comfortable during my long workdays. I finally got rid of the gel soles I used to wear and now wear the Sorbothane. For the record, I have always been impressed with Sorbothane insoles. Ben used them for years in his running shoes.”
I have been wearing a pair of Sorbothane insoles in my golf shoes for months. I can honestly say my feet are more comfortable than before with other insoles.
Sorbothane is a proprietary material, which has superior dampening qualities and has been scientifically proven to have the finest cushioning material available. Its memory allows it to return to its original shape, even after repeated compressions. It is the only insole material that absorbs up to 94.7% of impact shock – month after month. An added benefit is that they are antifungal and they also breathe, making them cooler than many other insoles.
If you are used to your shoes’ cardboard style insoles and know how light they are, these will feel heavier. Yes, Sorbothane is a heavier material, but most of their insoles have it in the heel and under the forefoot, rather than the whole length. The little bit of added weight is well worth the Sorbothane absorbing properties.
If you have problems with foot pain, a loss of cushioning from the fat pads on the bottom of your feet (common as we age), back pain, or impact related injuries like shin splints and knew pain, give these Sorbothane Insoles a try.
Disclosure: Other than the Sorbothane insoles I was sent by a representative, I have no financial interest and was not compensated for this review.
