If you’re here for a quick answer though let me tell you that these insoles from EasyFeet are some of the best insoles I’ve ever seen in terms of the quality of the material used to make a pair of insoles.
They provide good arch support and they are good for most feet (they’re not the best for you if you have high arches though).
I do not have any pre-existing foot conditions such as flat feet or plantar fasciitis or anything similar really. But I do like to have a good pair of insoles for my feet for both extra comfort and support for my feet.
Doing this will actually help prevent some of the most common foot conditions you’ll see out there.
If this is the first time wearing insoles with arch support they will feel a bit weird at first.
To me, it was like having mud or soil or something on my sole and I was always looking to get them cleaned. But in reality, it was the arch support elevation that I wasn’t accustomed to.
The manufacturer recommends using them for a couple of hours per day and gradually increasing the time you’re wearing them. It took me a week to get used to the arch support.
Keep reading to find out more details. We’ll have a look at what other people are saying about these EasyFeet insoles, who are these good for, alternatives, and more…
Unboxing of the EasyFeet insoles
The insoles come in a really nice box with some helpful information related to the insoles such as how to trim them and how to use them.
As I said above, as soon as I got them out of the box I could feel just by touching them that EasyFeet put a lot of love into creating these insoles. The materials used look high quality and the finished product is as well.
Another thing that is very obvious (especially when compared with my previous insoles, the Dr. School GelActive Work insoles) is that the arch support is quite high, it’s about 1.5 inches high (~4cm).
The heel cup looks really good and comfortable as well because the bottom of the insole comes with gel support pads at the heel and the front of the foot.
What features do these EasyFeet insoles have?
According to the manufacturer here are some of the most important features you’ll find in these insoles:
- Anti-odor technology will help avoid stinky feet
- Non Slip design keeping the insole and your feet in place when walking
- You can trim them to your size
- Heel and forefoot pads that are great for shock absorption that could help prevent corn and bunions
- Deep heel for better support and stability
- Quantum TPU arch for a rigid arch support
What are these EasyFeet inserts good for?
They’re good for anybody really. You don’t have to suffer from some type of foot condition in order to wear these inserts.
It’s actually better to start wearing them before you develop any foot conditions.
According to the manufacturer, wearing the EasyFeet orthotics will help:
- Prevent foot fatigue
- Alleviate plantar fasciitis pain and other foot-related pains
- It helps correct flat feet condition
- Prevent muscle fatigue in your lower legs
- Provide constant comfort during your shift
- Heel spurs
- Shin splints
- Morton’s neuroma
- Helps to realign your body helping you have better posture whilst you’re on your feet. This will help to relieve pain in your back, ankle, neck, lower back, joint, and other foot-related issues.
Can these help with flat feet pain?
They can definitely provide you with great support if you have flat feet.
However, if you have pain in your feet talk to a podiatrist first since most of the time the pain you’ll experience in your feet it won’t be related to the fact that you have a flat foot.
It could be other problems!
But if you have flat feet this insole is great for you since you need a more rigid insole with rigid arch support and this insole provides exactly that.
The Pro 11 Wellbeing is another good insole I had that provides good, rigid arch support.

What size are these?
Well, if you have a pair of good scissors in the kitchen, you can make these inserts as small as you need them to be. I had to trim mines down to size 10US, 42EU,8UK
So these can fit big and small feet, men and women with sizes going from XS 4.5 all the way up to XL 15.5 max).
Just make sure when you buy them that you choose women or men. That’s because the women’s version is slightly smaller than the men’s version.
Here! I’ve made it easier for you, just click on the one that you need and you’ll be redirected to Amazon or any other retailer you can buy them from:
- These are size XS (4.5 – 6.5 Men / 5.5-7.5 Women)
- These are size S (7-8.5 Men / 8.9.5 Women)
- These are size M ( 9-10.5 Men / 10-11.5 Women)
- These are size L (11-12.5 Men / 12-13.5 Women)
- These are size XL (12.5-14.5 Men / 13.5-15.5 Women)
Can you wash them in the washing machine?
Not really, you should not put them in the washing machine. The material will get damaged. Clean them manually using some rubbing alcohol or something along those lines.
I use a lot of rubbing alcohol to clean and disinfect footwear.
Can you use them in safety work boots?
Yes, 100% you can. Especially because work boots usually are a bit bulkier so you have a bit of extra space to insert these ones in your favorite work boots.
I’ve used these insoles with my Caterpillar Outline steel toe boots and they were very comfortable.
Can you use these in normal shoes?
Yes, according to some reviewers you can use these insoles with everyday shoes and trainers. The only problem you might run into is that once you put these insoles in, you might not have enough room inside your shoe.
Since the orthotic is going to raise your foot a little bit, the space inside the shoe might become too tight and uncomfortable.
And this is one of the reasons I’ve said earlier these insoles might not be good for you if you have high arches.
Unfortunately, there’s no way I could tell you if this is going to fit you or not. You just have to buy it and try it I guess.
My guess is that you’ll be fine putting them in shoes since these are thinner than other insoles I’ve had in the past.
Check below to see how thick they are and then make a decision based on that.
What’s the thickness of these insoles?
I’ve measured these insoles in 4 places: the forefoot section, the middle, the arch support, and the heel cup.
- Forefoot: ~0.2 inches (5mm)
- Middle: ~0.4 inches (1cm)
- Arch support: ~1.5 inches (3.80cm)
- Heel cup: ~0.8 inches (2cm)
How wide are these insoles?
They’re not that thick. They fit me perfectly and I didn’t have to cut them (only length-wise).
So they are about 3.75 inches wide (9.5 cm).
What’s the weight of each insole?
These EasfyFeet insoles weigh about 3.6 oz or 103 grams (I’ve measured their weight after trimming them down to my size).
Do these go over the existing insoles or under?
It’s up to you really but I do take out the existing ones and put these ones in place. And I do that for a few reasons:
- The old ones might have fungus or bacterias that I don’t want to transfer to the new ones
- The old ones might be have lost their shape and puting the new ones on top of the old ones might actually have a negative effect on your feet and even your back
- Puting the new ones inside whilst the old insoles are still in there might make my footwear uncomfortable to wear since the space inside my boot or shoe is significantly reduced
What other people are saying about these EasyFeet Insoles?
Most people seem to be amazed by the good quality of these insoles, especially because they’re not as expensive as many other top brands out there (and I can confirm this).
Also, it seems that EasyFeet has customers with all sorts of foot problems and the majority of them are happy with what the product does for them.
One of the major complaints about these insoles is that they might make some squeaking noise. If that is something that might bother you it’s definitely something to consider.
I’m a construction dude…I won’t even hear them with all the noise around me. But if you’re a nurse doing night shifts you definitely don’t want to creep out your patients 🙂
How long do the EasyFeet insoles last?
Bear in mind I work in construction so I’m sure I’ll need replacement quite soon. It will definitely depend on what type of work you’re doing and how much you walk of course.
The more you move, the faster you’ll have to replace them.
I’m still wearing mine at the time you’re reading this review. I’ll update the post if I’m replacing them or simply getting rid of them. I’ve started to wear them at the beginning of September 2021.
Will I buy them again?
Yes, I think I will. The quality, the arch support, the heel cup, the cushioned pads in the heel and the forefoot, and most importantly, the affordable price … makes me say I’ll buy these EasyFeet insoles again when I need a new pair!

Last words on this EasyFeet inserts review
Not bad insoles overall for people with no pre-existing foot conditions.
Also, from what I’ve gathered from the hundreds of reviews I’ve read (out of thousands of reviews these insoles have online) these are great for people that need arch support in general.
That could be because they either have flat feet and they just want some extra comfort, stability, and support, or most of the time because they have plantar fasciitis or some kind of pain related to feet.
Personally, I’m happy with my pair of EasyFeet insoles for the purpose I’ve bought them for and for my type of foot.
If you want to get yours and you’re not happy with the product, you can just return them, even if you have trimmed the insole (or so they claim).
An Excellent Insole
For The Money
It’s great quality and it provides all the features other expensive insoles feature but for less money.
They’re good for people with no foot conditions and also for some of you with flat feet, plantar fasciitis, and other foot-related issues.
