Superfeet Insoles

Superfeet Insoles

Every pair trail running shoes, hiking boots, or backpacking boots will include the manufacturers’ insoles, which generally are low quality and offer limited support.

If you spend a lot of time running, hiking, or backpacking, I highly recommend you invest in a pair of Superfeet or other enhanced insoles.

I first bought a pair of Superfeet when I bought a new pair of running shoes at a specialty shop a few years ago. Now I’m hooked!

They provide additional support and stability, and even though they are stiff and take a bit of getting used to, every medical doctor and podiatrist I know swears by them. My view is that it can’t hurt to invest a few extra bucks so I can keep hiking for many more years!

They are pricey, but my pair has lasted for well over a year, and I wear them all the time in my trail running shoes, hiking boots, and backpacking boots. I even wear them in my ski boots 🙂

    Great questions. Yep, you take out the factory insoles, pop in the higher quality ones, and you’re ready to go. Over time they will mold a little bit to your foot.
    Happy trails!

  2. Sandy Johnsen says:

    Does the existing insert in the boot have to be removed when inserting Superfeet? Or do the just go right on top of them?

    Great question, Kate. They use to retail for about $20, now they are up to $40! Crazy I know. I’ve had luck buying them at REI Used Gear Sales. People seem to buy a pair, cut it to fit their shoe, never wear it, and return it to REI. I’ve been able to pick up 2 pairs that way for about $10 each.
