  • Somewhat rigid
  • I prefer a more aggressive arch
  • Doesn't come in half sizes

Finding the right orthopedic footbed can be a challenge at best, and a catastrophe at worst. As a long-distance backpacker with high arches, I commonly struggle with foot pain. So, acquiring the appropriate footbed to alleviate my symptoms is high on my list. I’ve been lucky enough to try out the Sole Performance Medium Footbed for about a year. 

Sole Performance Medium Footbed


The Sole Performance Medium Footbed can be purchased for just $59. Compared to competitive products, this is right in the middle of standard price points. Insoles like Superfeet and Tread Labs cost about $45-60.

Your Sole Insoles for Athletes

The Performance Medium Footbed comes in full sizes. It’s a sustainable product that comes with softech cushioning for those with sensitive feet. The base of this footbed is made with recycled wine corks, which I find pretty amazing. Together, its components work together to give you a shock-absorbing footbed. 

Are these insoles right for you?

Investing in a Performance Medium Footbed might be a good option if you’re an athlete who spends a lot of time in environments that cause strain on your feet. This footbed is built for high-performance environments like the mountains or the track. And it’s a go-to product for runners and athletes alike. The Performance Medium Footbed also comes with a 90-day footbed guarantee and a manufacturers guarantee against product flaws. 

Testing Environments:

I’ve taken the Your Sole Performance Medium Footbed to the Rockies, the Ozarks, the Appalachian Mountains, and more! During my journeys, I’ve travelled moderate to lengthy distances in this footbed. When compared to standard footbeds, I found that the Sole Performance Medium Footbed was far more supportive. When using standard footbeds, it would take 2-3 days before I began experiencing pain. With the Sole Performance Medium Footbed, pain was minimized. 


As a long-distance backpacker and runner with high arches, I can commonly be found using some type of insole. I've tested dozens of insoles.
