New “Futuristic Shoe Insert” Offers Long-Lasting Foot Pain Relief (And Podiatrists Aren’t Happy About It)

If you often find yourself dealing with chronic foot pain like I do, then you’re going to be ecstatic when you hear what’s been happening in San Diego.

Why? Because someone finally got down to it and invented a solution to the foot pain epidemic that’s been plaguing our feet for decades and wreaking havoc on our sensitive foot bones.

And yeah, I’ll definitely go so far as to call it an epidemic. Why?

Because even though eight out of every ten Americans experience foot pain at some point in their lives, most of the available options for relieving this pain are either far too expensive for the average buyer or just totally ineffective.1

And chronic foot pain isn’t even the worst part of this issue. If you leave it untreated, foot pain can lead to far more serious conditions like chronic back pain, plantar fasciitis, overpronation (flat feet), arthritis, fibromyalgia, and others.

According to national surveys, of people who have foot pain:

In my case, my pain started 3 years ago and since then it has only gotten worse.

I often find myself unable to concentrate because of the pain in my feet, and it makes doing things I love like gardening and going for long walks into terrible, painful ordeals.

Foot pain really makes your life that much more difficult, sadly.

Our Feet Aren’t Being Taken Care Of!

We’re busier than ever these days, and we’re finding ourselves on our feet more and more. And yet, despite this, most shoes you can buy aren’t properly designed to protect the small, sensitive bones in your feet.

Usually, the shoes you buy are primarily designed to repel water, help you run faster, or even just look cool. All this is fine until you realize that a lot of these shoes sacrifice the health of your feet to achieve these other things.

But as much as I’d like to reform the shoe industry with a focus on foot health, I had to accept that it wasn’t going to happen any time soon.

At this point, I figured my only option was to look for other solutions. And believe me, I looked hard indeed.

Within the first year after I started noticing the pain, I must have tried at least a dozen insoles, but none of them were much help for very long.

Some were far too bulky, and I couldn’t get them to fit in my shoes half of the time, even after trimming them down. Trimming them also meant I couldn’t use them with my other shoes.

These insoles I purchased at a pharmacy started falling apart in less than 1 month of use…

Other insoles felt good while I was wearing them but left me in even worse pain after I took them off.

The rest were cheap and plastic-y, and one pair of insoles even started smelling absolutely nauseating after I’d been using them for only a week.

I tried many different products, but nothing was able to help me. I even checked out some custom orthotics, but the cost of them was through the roof; it was over $500 for the whole treatment, and I didn’t even get a guarantee that it would help at all!

Eventually, I gave up the search, convinced I would never be successful, and for years I did my best to put up with the suffering.

But every day, I could feel the pain slowly crawling up my back… and ultimately, I felt powerless against it.

But all this changed the other week when a friend of mine sent me an article about a new invention called Soul Insole.

It promised to give me real, long-lasting relief from chronic foot pain, regardless of what shoes I was wearing.

After reading the article, I was sold instantly, and I immediately ordered a pair. And wow, Soul Insole does everything I hoped it would do and more

What is Soul Insole?

In a nutshell, Soul Insole is the first “micro-orthotic insole” available for consumers.

These insoles give you all the benefits of expensive orthotic treatment, but without the cost, visits to the doctor or bulky equipment.

You just insert them into your shoes (or boots, or high-heels, or even sandals) and prestoYou’ll start feeling instant relief; first in your feet, then your legs, back, or wherever else the pain has spread.

These insoles are incredibly simple to use. They don’t require trimming or measuring, and because they’re made with high-quality materials, they’re also very durable. They can potentially last you up to several years!

What’s even better is that they haven’t changed the fit of any of my shoes, and they don’t crowd my toes, cause heel slippage, or do any of those things that bothered me so much about the other insoles I tried over the years.

Truly, I’ve never seen or felt anything like it, and as I’ve mentioned I’ve tried a lot of the other options that are out there!

Why Makes Soul Insole Better Than Other Insoles?

What really sets Soul Insole apart from the competition is its use of high-performance memory gel and its biomechanical design, which have been borrowed from some of the most advanced orthotic science.

Soul Insole is able to redistribute pressure evenly across your foot when standing, which helps relieve pressure from both your heel and your forefoot.

As you wear them, Soul Insole’s patented orthotic design gently keeps your foot in the proper alignment throughout the day.

In short, Soul Insole’s design actually helps your feet to stand properly, meaning they can potentially relieve your foot pain for good!

This will help correct your posture, which also helps prevent the back and neck pain that is often the result of problems in your feet!

So, Who Invented Soul Insole?

Believe it or not, Soul Insole was not created by a leading shoe or insole company or anyone else who you would have expected to be thinking about this stuff.

In fact, Soul Insole was created by just one person, Laina Gossman. At the time, she was working in an orthotics shoe boutique in San Diego. She began noticing a growing trend among the customers at her store.

Namely, she saw that many of the same customers kept returning to the store unsatisfied with their orthotics.

They all seemed to want the same thing; something that would solve their chronic foot pain permanently, not just something that would make it “a little better”.

Laina saw this as a challenge, and since Laina also happened to have a background in kinesiology and biomechanics, she was able to actually pursue this challenge.

She had a bold idea; to recreate the same relief that comes from expensive orthotics in a simple, affordable insole that anyone could wear.

Now, as someone currently wearing shoes that feel like they’re the plushest, most comfortable footwear I’ve ever worn in my life, I can confirm that she was successful.

Laina patented the design behind Soul Insole, then set up a Kickstarter to fund the production of her new product. It wasn’t long before her campaign reached its goal, and then exceeded it three times over. It’s just more proof of how common chronic foot pain is and how badly people want a solution that works!

Who should use Soul Insole?

Anyone experiencing foot, knee, leg, or back pain should try using Soul Insole. There’s a very good reason it’s one of the top products recommended by athletic therapists and medical practitioners worldwide.

That said, there are some groups who will truly benefit from using Soul Insole, including:

  • Anyone who often wears high-heels or other shoes that typically cause discomfort.
  • High-impact sports players, or anyone who frequently goes running/jogging/walking.
  • Anyone with flat feet or high arches.
  • Anyone with foot ailments such as plantar fasciitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, neuroma, metatarsalgia, bunions, heel spurs, tendonitis, or multiple sclerosis
  • Anyone with additional pain in their ankles, legs, back, or neck who thinks that foot pain could be the root cause.

Another great thing about Soul Insole is that any gender or age group can use them!

There’s No Point in Waiting, Try It Now!

I’m so glad I discovered Soul Insoles. Not only do I get to enjoy gardening without any pain again, I also feel like I’m getting a foot massage all day. It’s not something you can quite explain… you have to experience it for yourself!

In summary: If you suffer from chronic pain in your feet, experts agree you need to fix it as soon as possible. Soul Insole finally provides an easy, affordable option that’s suitable for all.

UPDATE: Soul Insole is now available to the public! Here’s where to try it yourself

Soul Insole is finally commercially available, and they’re offering a 60-day risk-free trial, so you can experience the magic for yourself!

They’re truly unlike any other product out there. If you don’t love them, you can get a refund with no problems at all. But if it works as it has for me, you’ll be able to have a totally new lease on life. Give it a try!


Can this help with foot-related medical conditions?

Yes! Our insoles were designed by orthotic and biomechanics experts to help with the following medical issues: Plantar Fasciitis, Over Pronation (Flat Feet), Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Neuroma, Metatarsalgia, Bunions, Hammer Toes, Heel Spur, Achilles tendonitis, Posterior Tibial Tendonitis, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and High Arches.

Due to the nature of the foot pain, many people assume that they need a lot of cushioning under the heel. The reality is that properly supporting the arch stops it from dropping, overstretching and re-tearing the plantar fascia again and again. This biomechanically designed support system in The Soul Insole helps keep the feet in alignment to give the feet a chance to heal. They also drop off before the heel to somewhat suspend the bones and take the pressure off.

How long do they last? Will they ever wear out?

The insoles can last for years depending on how they are cared for and used.

Soul Insoles™ high-performance memory gel does not compress over time and the insole will maintain its shape even after years of daily use.

The coolest part is that the adhesive regenerates! Just wash it underwater, leave it out to dry and the stickiness will return to brand new!

We recommend storing your insoles in a cool, dry place, indoors, away from the sunlight.

How do I clean my insoles?

Cleaning your insoles is EASY! Simply wash them with warm water and leave them out to dry. The adhesive will automatically regenerate and your insoles will feel like-new!

Where do I place the insoles in my shoes?

Placing the insoles in your shoe is designed to be really easy!

1. Remove the insoles from the packaging and identify the right and left one – it’s written clearly on each insole.

2. Place each insole about halfway between front & back of the shoe.

3. Try it on, see how it feels, and make any small adjustments as needed.

4. Start enjoying immediate pain relief on your feet, legs, and lower back!

Do Soul Insoles work for every type of shoe? Can I move them from shoe to shoe?

Yes and our customers love this feature! The size, flexibility, and stickiness of these insoles allow them to work in any type of footwear (from sneakers and heels to dress shoes, boots and more). They also come in multiple sizes for Men, Women and Kids!

BONUS: You can also move the insoles from shoe to shoe. Just peel them off and place them neatly in the middle of your next pair of shoes. The adhesive will regenerate when you rinse them with water so you never have to worry about the insoles losing stickiness if you move them between shoes a lot.

Can I use Soul Insoles if I have flat feet?

Yes! Arch supports like Soul Insole is recommended by experts to relieve the pain caused by flat feet. This should relieve some of the load that the body places on the tendon tissue.

Do Soul Insoles help lower back pain?

We strongly recommend using Soul Insole if you’re experiencing lower back pain.

It is very common for lower back pain to be posture related and not many people know that good posture starts with the feet. When your alignment and balance is off, your body will compensate by twisting and contorting your legs and lower back. This could lead to discomfort or long-term pain if it’s not fixed at the source.

Does it come as one insole or a pair for both left and right?

Our insoles come as a pair. Each package has both a left and a right insole.

Do you accept HSA / FSA cards?

While you won’t be able to use your FSA / HSA card directly on our website, Insoles are approved by most FSA / HSA accounts so you will likely be able to make the purchase and submit a receipt to your carrier for reimbursement.

Is there a money-back guarantee and/or warranty?

Yes. They offer a no hassle, 60-Day Money Back Guarantee. If you’re not 100% satisfied with Soul Insole, they will be happy to help you with a return. They want you to be happy!
