What goes into making these insoles?
The process of designing one of our products is a remarkably creative one. It brings together many disciplines: starting with the hand-drawn artwork, clay shaping to capture the natural curvature of the foot for an anatomically correct fit, woodworking, hand-poured molds, 3D CAD modeling, 3D printing, material testing and tweaking... A lot of time and care goes into our insoles.

Genius Product! I can't believe how great this works. I comfortably used them all day today on a pair of shoes that had previously rubbed the back of my ankle raw. I am so excited to wear again all those shoes that I had put to the side. I told everyone about it at work! Incredible! THANK YOU!

I am shocked at how well these worked. I bought some expensive Italian leather bootie flats and the heel instantly gave me blisters and were so uncomfortable to wear because the heel was stuff and hard. I couldn't return the shoes so I searched high and low for something that could protect my heel. My husband actually found these for me, and I am hooked! Thank you so much for creating a product that truly works! I will be back for more!

I'm sure these work great for most shoes, however they did not work with my hiking boots. I've been wearing my new hiking boots around my office to break them in, and purchased these to save my heels during the process. My boots are 'high tops', and unfortunately these were not tall enough to cover the spot I needed them to cover. Will update review when i use them on another pair of shoes.

This works great, absolutely saved my feet. I would love a nude/beige color to be more discrete with other color shoes.
