Since I’ve been dealing with the lovely condition known as Plantar Fasciitis, I have become very interested in insoles. So much so that nowadays I only wear two pair of shoes – my Sketcher’s and my running shoes – because I simply cannot deal with uncomfortable shoes. I’m happy to say that while my PF has gotten markedly better in the last couple of months, I still want my feet to be as comfy as possible. So when Ashley at Insoles and Beyond ( emailed me with an offer to try a pair of their insoles, I jumped on it!

Insoles and Beyond is a small, family owned company out of Chapel Hill, NC and I am all about supporting small businesses. I much prefer to deal with a small business whenever I can so I am happy to promote this company. Ashley was easy to work with and offered suggestions of the type of insoles I might like based on my needs. Ordering from their website was easy and the shipping was fast (and also free for all US orders!). I had no issues, but I’m fairly certain that if I’d had any, Ashley would have been available to help solve them.

Insoles and Beyond offers many types of insoles – for running, for everyday wear, for work shoes…pretty much any need you have, they’ll have an insert to meet your need.

I ordered the currexSole RunPro Medium, based on Ashley’s recommendation for an insole to go in a running shoe that would also be good for PF. I put these insoles in my current running shoes and man, they felt good!! For the first time in a long time, I noticed zero foot pain while on the treadmill. I am very happy with these insoles, and I will probably order more insoles to go in other shoes (I hate having to keep switching out insoles to go in other shoes, and besides I think it’s better to give insoles a day’s rest in between wearings).

These are the insoles I have – easy to customize the fit and super comfy!
