Hello :-)

I got some moulded insoles from Sweatshop a fair while back. Good for 1000 miles they said. I use them in everything now, work shoes, running shoes etc, and they are looking a bit, well holey :-)

I have no idea if they work, at all, but feel I should get some more. People at the running club swear by loads of different types. Just wondering what experience you guys have with them?

I have a couple of old pair of trainers, pretty worn, with holes in the soles (so - wet :-/) but a bit of potential use left. Lidl gel insoles £5 - surprisingly good. Had meant just to walk in the shoes but ok for some running. Aldi thin insoles £2 - well, I suppose I'm getting my £2 worth.

I could try Lidl, there is one near me, just assumed they wouldn't support as well (have a rubbish arch but got quoted like £100 for some orthotics).

I have some of those Sweatshop ones, they look ok, although I suspect they have done more than 1000 miles. I felt they were great at first but my blisters seem to be worse when I wear them and having spent the last few months not bothering to swap them from shoe-shoe I can't say I have noticed any appreciable difference. Added to the fact that the most recent gait analysis (in a different chain) suggested that I need rather less correction than that anyway.

I have been using Sole insoles for years. You warm them in the oven, put them in the shoes, stand in the shoes and they mould to the shape of the feet. This has always made sense to me as I have one foot that pronates badly and another that pronates very badly, so off the peg insoles won't work for me on both feet. I have always got on well with the Sole ones and they may be similar to what you got from Sweatshop.

Ah, someone else has mentioned them (or ones you mould in the oven anyway). Makes the most sense to me as well.

Got something to say?
