Shoe Insoles For Standing All Day

Shoe Insoles For Standing All Day

I leave for work in the morning at 5:30 and get home at 7:30 at night- all but about 70-80 minutes (commuting and lunch) is me standing on my feet or walking around (I average about 10 miles a day of walking around). I am not walking on carpet either- it’s hard concrete. I wear sneakers, I can only imagine what people who wear boots and stuff feel.

The past few weeks, when I come home, my body is aching and my legs are killing me. I try to alternate between 2 pairs of shoes every other day so they don’t get worn down and in the past, I never had a problem. I came to the conclusion that I need to either buy a new pair of shoes or find a good pair of shoe insoles – I decided on the latter.

I went out shopping on Thursday morning (Christmas Eve) and I was on a mission to find myself a pair of shoe insoles that will give me all day comfort and help support my arches.

In the past, I tried the Dr. Scholl’s Custom Fit Inserts – you stand on a machine and it will have you stand in various ways to map out your pressure zones and then at the end, it’ll recommend a certain pair for you that is to help with those pressure zones -but even though they helped, they didn’t last long and they were too expensive – they’re about $50.00 a pair!!! I was not going to keep spending that much money every month or so- I would be better off just going out and buying a new pair for that amount of money.

I went to a couple different stores to their shoe accessory areas and looked at what they had to offer – and there was A LOT to offer. You can get things for your heels, the balls of your feet or you can get the whole shoe insoles – and all of those have different ‘flavors’ too.

I decided to go with a whole shoe insert but then I had to narrow down my selection by types of comfort, features, sizes… it wasn’t easy. It was a pain in the ass to be honest.

I ended up going with airplus Ultra Work Memory Plus Insoles (scroll to the bottom of the page). I paid $9.99 for the pair.

Here’s a list of the features these shoe insoles are supposed to have:

  • Memory foam instantly molds to the foot to offer personalized comfort
  • Relieves pain from working and standing on hard surfaces and rugged worksites
  • Offers all day comfort and support
  • Targeted heel protection absorbs extreme shock
  • Ideal for any type of work boots, casual shoes, or sneakers
 So, I found pretty much what I was looking for. They’re supposed to relieve pain from working and standing on hard surfaces – and that’s pretty much what I’m needing.
I put them in my shoes right after I got home and wore them around for the past 2 days and I will say that they do absorb a lot of pressure and shock. Walking in them feels so much better than a new pair of shoes.
I was carrying Christmas decoration boxes at my mother-in-laws from the basement up to the first floor and they worked like a charm. My feet were not hurting at all. My knees and ankles weren’t bothering me and when we got home last night, I wasn’t sore and exhausted like I normally be with that kind of movement. Now granted, it wasn’t for 13 hours and it wasn’t on cement; but just by walking up and down the stairs a few times and walking to the back of the basement, gave me an idea as to how these shoe insoles will work and hold up. As of right now, I am enjoying them. I’ll be putting them to the real test on Tuesday and will report back with the results.
For me, I didn’t have to do any cutting for them to fit in my shoes because I wear a size 14 anyway, so they fit pretty well.
I have some pictures attached to show what they look like.

UPDATE (January 1, 2016): I just wanted to give an update on how well the airplus Ultra Work Memory Plus Insoles perform – they’re AMAZING! I used them for the whole week and at the end of the day, my feet weren’t hurting me and I’m not hurting the next day. This insoles are a must if you stand and walk all day. They live up to their expectations. Now, I have to see how long they last and if they continue to perform highly. I will give other updates as to how they’re holding up after I’ve been using them longer (hopefully they continue to last a lot longer!)
Another updated (January 30, 2016): Well, I’ve been wearing the insoles for a little over a month now and I must say they’re still going strong. I am still impressed with them. I figured within a month, I would have to replace them – that is not the case at all. My feet are still being cushioned and they aren’t tired when I get home at night. My body is a little tired but I attribute that to getting old 😒😔🙄 I wish there was something I could take for that!
After a month of use, they’re still going strong and I still recommend them!
