Introducing currexSole Insoles

November 6th, 2013

When looking to add cushioning and/or structure to your shoes, replacement insoles are a great option. Stock running shoe sockliners generally offer limited cushioning and support. Custom orthotics, though they are made to meet the runner’s individual needs, can be very expensive. The solution for many folks is to purchase a set of “aftermarket” insoles, and to our collection of structured insoles we recently added currexSole.

CurrexSole insoles are designed to provide structure and support in a lightweight, comfortable and breathable package. Each currexSole insole has a decoupled heel design, to reduce the velocity of pronation, and strategically placed rebound pads in the forefoot that provide optimal propulsion at toe-off. For support in the arch, a reinforced nylon stability plate adds structure, reducing foot and arch fatigue, and a triple-layer moisture management system helps to absorb moisture and prevent blisters.

In their RUNPRO line, currexSole offers three profiles: High, Med, or Low. To determine which profile is best for your particular feet, CurrexSole has developed a two-step process that looks at both foot type and leg axis (you can watch the product video to learn more about the process of selecting the right insole). The High profile tends to work best for neutral runners. The Med profile is the choice for slight overpronators, while the Low profile is best suited for runners with moderate to severe overpronation.

Tester Feedback

Several RW employees have had the opportunity to test these insoles. Here’s what they think:

Bonnie (Low profile): The insoles are responsive and a little “springy.”  I have a custom set of orthotics because I am an extreme overpronator, and I feel like I could trade out those prescription insoles for a run up to about 4 miles. Anything longer than that and I’d stick with my orthotics, but I’ve never been able to use a pre-packaged insole for even short distances before.
.

Cortney (Low profile): The insoles were very comfortable upon initial step in. I can feel the structure, but I’m not sure if the insole itself is providing a lot of correction. It does give the appearance of an arch without feeling to invasive, which some runners with lower arches might appreciate. The rebound pads are definitely noticeable and are super soft and comfy.

Juli (Med profile): I like them. They don’t feel as plushy or cushioned as other cushioned insoles that I’ve tried. To be honest, I couldn’t even tell that they were in my shoes! I put them in my Merrell’s, just for fun and see how they fit, and they actually worked out fine in such a low-profile shoe.

Tera (Med profile): I haven’t had a chance to run in them yet, but I have been walking around a lot in them. I don’t even notice that I have them in my shoes. They don’t feel rigid and match my arch perfectly, which is pretty impressive for an out-of-the-box insole. I’ve been experiencing some arch pain lately due to too much running, and I’ve been wearing these at work and they’ve been helping to relive the pain.

Nicole (High profile): I’ve only been able to test these out in one pair of shoes, and I didn’t love them. They fit well and were comfortable in the heel and forefoot, but when I was running in them I actually felt too much of the arch plate. On a run over 4 miles, the insoles would have bruised my arches.
