Hi, I am looking for some information on replacement insoles. I'm considering Sof Sole,
Sorbothane, and Spenco. I just had some new orthotics made. I went from full-length cushioned
orthotics to 3/4 length plastic ones. The trouble is that since I've been wearing the full-length
ones for so long, I threw away the original insoles that came with many of my shoes. I need the
replacement insoles to work in conjunction with the new orthotics. I'm leaning toward the plain
old flat Spencos. Any thoughts?

Your flat Spenco insoles will most likely serve you the best. And they'll let your orthotics do
their wonders.

Having worn 3/4 length hard orthotics for several years, I would agree with Ozzie's advice .

I use the plain Spencos, and they work great for me. But I don't wear orthotics. I don't even use
the insoles that normally comes with the shoe.

Thanks for the advice. I went out and bought the plain Spencos. They do seem like the best fit with
the orthotics.
