Comments: I don't have any foot pains and just wanted to try these to improve fit and get a bit more arch support
in some of the flatter shoes. They didn't work out for me. I have mid-high arches and in my size the arch on these inserts was too
far back. Maybe I needed to get these in a bigger size and cut the front part down to fit in my shoes, but there is no way to know
until you try. They also add some height to the heel of the shoe and makes them feel more "platform-y".
Comments: These offer good arch support plus good cushioning for your heel and under the balls of your feet.
They differ from the Superfeet green in that there is a cushioning pad under the balls of the feet - great to cushion those who
come out of a split step on every shot, and recover with "skipping" steps. These will outlast the life of your tennis shoe. The foam
superior to any original shoe insert. I have to disagree with RonR's comments that they are not appropriate for those with flat feet.
In fact 95% of people with flat feet have the type that easily corrects with appropriate arch support [only about 5% have "fixed" flat
feet due to a bony abnormality].
Comments: I use the orange all the time in my tennis shoes. Using these provides almost instant relief of heel pain
and various ankle pains from too hard a heel strike or plantar fasciitis. I have to say that I almost gave up tennis until I discovered
these. It's not really about a "cushion" vs "firm controlled" insole. So though they seem thin they will outlast a pair of shoes. Note
that the orange is supposed to be a bit firmer and longer lasting cushion than the green. But you might like the green more if you
want an insole that stays out of your way. Both work great but I find the orange lasts about 2x long. The first two times you wear
these your feet will feel better but they will feel tired as well. You will be using your feet differently. This feeling goes away as your
foot gains strength. Note: Do not use this color if you have flat feet. They have a model for flat feet. These are for people with
