Top 5 insoles for Football and Soccer Cleats

I receive emails on a daily basis asking me “Where can I buy an insole that supports my arches in cleats?”. I have tried all styles and brands of insoles from $20-$120 and many just did not fit properly in my soccer/football cleats.  I have sifted through and taken the time to create a list of the best 5 inserts for cleats, so that others can have an easier time finding the right pair for their shoes.





After testing the Soul Insole in a variety of cleats, I can now recommend them as the best replacement insole I have tested. Their size is key in not changing the way that the shoes fit. The support is excellent. I actually was experiencing some pain from plantar fascitis and with these insoles, no pain!


The Shoe Bubbles have an adhesive backing that sticks securely in the shoes. You can move them from your soccer cleats to your daily shoes to your sandals. If they get dirty, it is simple to wash them clean. Once dry, the adhesive renews.


If you are on the smaller end of the size range, I would recommend getting one size smaller for soccer cleats so that you don’t have too much support.  The insoles form to the shoes and soccer shoes have a narrow midfoot region which increases the feeling of support that these give. They take a little bit of time to get used to the feeling of support but after a couple weeks they really made a difference in reducing my foot pain.


2. Superfeet Flexthin Shoe Insole - model FL132:
The insoles are fairly thin and supportive. They fit fairly well into my soccer cleats after removing the original liner.  I just needed to trim the front a little. They’ve got some cushioning and impact absorption. Definitely recommend these for a full length orthotic.


3. CurrexSole ActivePro:




This insoles has different choices for high, low and medium arch heights. It is fairly slim fitting so I did not need to trim them to fit into my shoes.  They were comfortable with plenty of arch support. The materials can compress over time and the cushioning didn’t last more than 1 season.


4. Spenco Polysorb Cross Trainer Athletic:

These add nice cushioning and some much needed support. The cushioning can take up space in the cleats but if you have a narrow foot, it might not be an issue. I trimmed the front toe area to fit these into my cleats.  For me they felt comfy and fit pretty well, but they raised my heel up in the cleat, leaving my heels slightly slipping out of the heel cup.


5. Sof Sole Athlete Full Length Comfort Neutral Arch Comfort Insole:


These insoles were fairly slim fitting with some nice cushioning to begin with. I had to trim them to fit into my shoes and they didn’t make the shoes too tight after trimming.  They don’t have much of any support, but the cushioning felt pretty nice for the first month or so. The material compresses over time and then they need replacing. They do the trick if all you need is something to replace your existing insoles and you don’t have any serious foot problems.

Unadulterated splendor from Keita ought to have made the Reds' first, yet in the wake of turning into space in the left-back position and playing an inch-idealize long ball for Salah the Egyptian King neglected to hang it over Wayne Hennessey.

A major spare from Alisson to deny Luka Milivojevic's free-kick drew a clench hand pump from Klopp, with the Brazilian noteworthy both in shot-ceasing and, all the more along these lines, his immaculate appropriation. 

The presentation of Jordan Henderson with 25 minutes to play underscored the quality on Liverpool's seat, and enabled Wijnaldum to advance to give ghosting keeps running from profound. 

With official Michael Oliver in the thick of the activity all through, he had a major call to make when the generally great Aaron Wan-Bissaka cut down Salah when through on objective—properly sending off the adolescent. 

Furthermore, the numbers game paid off as Mane got a late pioneer, after another fine break from a Palace corner, winning another essential triumph.

The Reds lost many points last season from winning positions but with this game, it seems like they're on the right track to win many more points this season.
