Relieves Pain and Provides Protection

The Classic Full Sole Insoles is the most "Neutral" of all the insoles we make. Classic Full Sole Inserts are made of 100% Sorbothane® from heel-to-toe. Sorbothane® visco-elastic material provides maximum protection and comfort by absorbing up to 94.7% of impact shock. Classic Full Sole Inserts will retain their comfort and protection well into the future. Classic Insoles are a favorite of people who do not have a lot of extra room in their shoes (I.E a the best insole for dress shoes) and experienced runners who like a little extra cushioning but do not want to take away the "Feel of the road".

Customer Reviews

Wow Review by Kay
Love them! I weigh 260 pounds and stand/walk all day long on tiles floors. I use 2 of these in each shoe (layered on top of each other). I did have to buy a bigger shoe size to be able to double them up. All my foot/knee/back problems gone. Very durable, have had some of these for more than 10 years. When they are dirty I throw them into my HD front loader washing machine on delicate with cold water and let air dry. I hope they never stop making these. (Posted on 4/16/2016)
I have tried this ma Review by Geraldo
I have tried this many times, and the tape always comes off. Hockey tape gets all gooey and comes off in a lump, as well as lieavng your shoe quite sticky. Masking tape just wears off. What tape works well? (Posted on 11/30/2015)
Saved my back and knees Review by Amazon Review
I work long hours on my feet and needed some support to protect my back and knees. This does the job and does it well! The difference was clearly noticeable and I am no longer in pain from working on my feet. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
WORTH EVERY DOLLAR! Review by Amazon Review
I use sorbothane classic insoles in all my tennis, running and regular shoes, under the shoe insole.. I originally used this product 20+ yrs. ago, I have tried many other inserts, but none absorb shock like the Classic. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
They Work, But They're Heavy Review by Amazon Review
They do a fantastic job of absorbing shocks, but they're unbelievably heavy. I stopped using them because it felt like I had weights in my shoes.

Next, I'll try a pair of the sorbothane insoles that have small sorbothane patches in the heel and ball. That seems like a much better compromise. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
5.0 out of 5 starsI was shocked how good my legs felt during and after my run Review by Amazon Review
I recently started running again after too many years to count. For the last 9+ months I've been struggling with shin splints. Nothing was helping. On a hope and a prayer I went with these insoles. The first time I ran with these in, no lower leg pain, I was shocked how good my legs felt during and after my run. I can't say enough good things about these insoles.

Best shock absorbers on the market Review by Amazon Review
I have used Sorbothane in running shoes since 1980. It is heavy and not cushiony like other inserts. It is a flat material that goes in the bottom of your shoes, under an arch support. It absorbs something like 90 percent of the shock that goes up your legs and spine from walking/running. You won't feel it when you're moving, but you will later when you stop and might normally get achy or stiff. I love this stuff! (Posted on 9/28/2015)
Sorbothane Works!! Review by Amazon Review
I first heard about Sorbothane on the television show,"That's Incredible!" I walk on concrete floors all day. I've had issues with my feet for years. My husband suggested I look for Sorbothane. As usual, Amazon was my first choice to search! The Sorbothane inserts have given my feet new life! My feet do not throb at night, at all! I am even able to exercise on my treadmill again! This product works like no other insert! (Posted on 9/28/2015)
Only wish it was cheaper Review by Amazon Review
Positives - USED ONE PAIR DAILY FOR FOUR MONTHS - durable build, sorbothane is an excellent cushion/shock absorber, still holding up without any holes despite being on my feet for 9-10 hours/day
Negatives - expensive at $25, could have bought Dr. Scholls Air Pillo x 4-5 times with same money, it is breaking down slightly at edges and has had some compression over time
Bottom line - Only wish it was cheaper. This is only for cushion, not arch support. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
Original still the best Review by Amazon Review
I wore these Sorbothanes when they first came out and the inventer went on the late night talk show circuit putting his hand under a sheet of Sorbothane then hitting it with a hammer. I believed it then and I purchased the original all sorbothane inserts and I ran in them forever. They protected my feet and body when I ran over 50 to 60 miles per week. I recently started running again and had knee and heel and toe problems. I ordered a pair of the originals and I will buy another two pair at least for all my shoes as I wear them running as well as working in them and on weekends just walking or shopping. The really work .. By the way, I was a runner in the late 70s and early 80s, when we did mega distance, because we did not know any better at the time. But thank God, I found the full Sorbothane inserts then and NOW again. I did the serach for the originals.. and to my surprise, they were sold through Amazon.com. I always buy anything I can through Amazon.. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
Quite Disappointed Review by Amazon Review
I'm an avid runner who runs around 35-40 miles per week. I'm also a physical therapist who stands most of the day seeing my patients. I purchased this product based on customer reviews and recommendation from a friend. Package arrived earlier than scheduled. First thing I noticed about the product was its weight. It was heavy. It definitely added more weight to the running shoes that I wear. I attributed it to the fact that it's probably made of durable material to help it last a long time. It also doesn't have an arch support (or at least I didn't feel it with the arches that I have). When I tried using it with the shoes I wear for work, they felt hard standing on. Needless to say, I'm returning this product. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
Best Shock Absorbtion but Heel Too Thick (Workaround Explained) Review by Amazon Review
I'm an avid hiker who climbed 11 14ers and countless other ridges in 2012. My problem had always been my bony feet with high arches -- which limited my hike length (I called mine "10-mile feet"). I've cobbled my own insoles together for years, but hadn't found the right solution until recently.

I had a pair of the classic sorbothane insoles, which I didn't use because the heel was simply too thick (raising my heel too high for the boot to grip). BUT -- I cut them in half and mated them to a pair of Arch Cradles by Pedifix (Amazon sells them; make sure to get the right size) Pedifix Arch Cradles. The PediFix arch cradles are the best heel-cup/arch/metatarsal support insoles I have ever found. They taper forward to a thin edge designed not to be felt by your foot. However, they do nothing to absorb shock or cushion the forefoot. Which is where my fix comes in.

Sorbothane, being a dense elastic plastic with superb shock absortion and excellent heat resistance, grinds down without melting. I was able to cut my old sorbothane insoles in half and taper them with my belt sander to match the taper of the PediFix insoles. I taped them together and found that I had created the perfect insole...almost. Because there is room in my boots to do so, I also added a pair of standard Spenco FLAT neoprene insoles on top for extra cushioning. I used them on my last climb of the season (Longs Peak, a 14 mile hike with more than 5K' elevation gain and loss) and my feet, while tired, did not hurt at the end. The combination was unbeatable. The Spenco insoles are good for one season, but are relatively cheap to replace.

Now, this may seem like a lot of work. But, for me, a guy who's been hiking for 50 years and does it a LOT, it was well worth the effort. How my feet feel at the end of the day is priceless. Now if someone would only make such a product...

ALSO note: Sorbothane is available in sheet form Isolate It!: Sorbothane Vibration Damping Sheet Stock 50 Duro (1/8 x 12 x12in) which is cheaper than the insoles. 1/8" is the thickness of the insole's forefoot.

A word on insoles that come standard in shoes: they exist for in-store comfort, and do you virtually no good in normal use. I never buy a show without a removable insole I can replace with something that works.

A word on flat insoles: many, such as Superfeet (way overpriced IMHO), have excellent heel cups, but no metatarsal support (a "bump" that the fleshy part of your foot rides on that's just behind the metatarsal -- ball of foot -- bones). The Pedifix insoles may feel a little funny at first, but wear them for 5 minutes and that feeling disappears. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
Perfect for boots, great for all else. Review by Amazon Review
These very surprisingly fit into a size 9.5 (male) boot without any trimming whatsoever. After the initial insertion, they didn't slip or slide at all. In Altamas boots, they make walking on concrete feel like walking on expanded foam insulation. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
These will save your knees... Review by Amazon Review
I have used these insoles for many years and they are great for running, walking, and standing on your feet all day. I am 6'3" and 250 LBS. These insoles have given my knees new life. I play tennis on them and run 10-15 miles a week on them. At work, I walk around a cement floor all day. My knees couldn't be happier. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
Insole Review by Amazon Review
If you haven't seen Sorbothane in action you should watch it on youtube. An odd association: I have Sorbothane shock pads under my front loading washer to keep it from walking across the floor - IT WORKS. The amount of vibration and shock that these pads absorb for hours on end is AMAZING. That same material works well for feet! The Sorbothane insoles are better than gels or foam any day.

I love Sorbothane Review by Amazon Review
I've loved Sorbothane ever since collapsing my arches in a marathon, seeing an orthopedic resident who didn't know what to do, and ended up buying Sorbothane's graphite arch supports which may have helped my feet heal well. I have since always put graphite arches in my running shoes, but they're too thick for dress shoes.

I bought these as a replacement for some other thin Sorbothane insoles that I can't find anymore. These are also very thin, so they fit into regular shoes well, and have all of the wonderful shock absorbing qualities of Sorbothane. I find that with these types of insoles I can walk or be on my feet for far longer without foot problems.

As long as they keep making them, I'll keep buying them. Loyal customer for more than a decade. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
est shock absorbing shoe insert by far Review by Amazon Review
After I had the cartilege removed from both knees it had been painful to walk on hard surfaces like concrete and tile and sometimes even hardwood floors. I put these in my walking shoes and now there's never any pain from walking or running. I've seen professional orthotists cut custom-shaped insoles from a big sheet of Sorbothane and charge $80 for them. The Sorbothane seems to do the shcok absorbing that the cartileges used to do. These are heavier than other inserts but they wear like iron. I've had mine almost 20 years, and they don't pick up odors or smell at all. If you don't like the extra weight for running in a competition or playing sports, get a pair of the other Sorbothane inserts that just have bands of (black) Sorbothane in the heal and the ball of the foot area for that use.

Stealth technology for your feet Review by Amazon Review
Back in 1982, when I was obviously a much younger man, I played a lot of competitive tennis. Back then, after a season of playing 3-set matches almost every day, my knees began to hurt - especially on landing after each serve. A friend suggested I put a pair of these sorbothane insoles into my sneakers and the pain magically disappeared. It didn't take days or weeks to notice the results - they were apparent the very next time I was on the court.

Now, 30 years later, I'm playing a lot of tennis again and needless to say this aging body of mine has more aches and pains. I could compensate by easing up on my game, but where's the fun in that? I started looking around for the same "plain vanilla" insoles I had used so successfully in the past but all the newfangled models seemed frighteningly over-engineered with different kinds of arch and heel supports and multiple zones. It all seemed too complex.

Recently I saw a listing for these basic, nothing-fancy RxSorbo Sorbothane Classic Insoles and bought a pair. I used them today for the first time and after 2 fierce hours on the court I can tell you that I have almost no pain and remarkably little fatigue. Since I play 3 or 4 times a week I'm comparing apples to apples - I know the level of pain and fatigue I usually experience. These things just work.

I remember when I first tried them 30 years ago I'd read that they coated submarines with sorbothane because it was so shock absorbing it made them stealthily invisible to sonar. Whether or not that's true, they seemed to have made my feet and legs nearly invisible to pain. It's like stealth technology for tender feet and knees. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
