Can I use one pair of insoles for all of my shoes?
Asked a year ago
Do I buy one pair and use them in every shoe I wear, and how long do I wear them for? They're kind of expensive, so I don't have to buy a new pair for each pair of shoes.

Using one insole with multiple shoes should not be a problem as long as it fits.
However, different activities often require varying degrees of cushioning and comfort. A custom insole may be better as the podiatrist will factor in utility during design.
At Upstep, our custom orthotics are designed to fit multiple pairs of shoes for similar activities. For example, we have fitness walking and hiking custom orthotics that you’ll be able to wear in any shoes you do power walking or hiking activities in.
Although custom orthotics are more expensive than their store-bought counterparts, Upstep offers excellent prices. Because we use such durable materials, they will also last you a few years—much longer than OTC inserts.

It is definitely possible to use the same pair of insoles for different shoes that you own, providing the insoles fit inside the footwear correctly without altering their shape and therefore, purpose. Chances are you will always need your insoles, so definitely try and invest in the best ones out there to ensure maximum comfort.

In general, yes. As long as the insoles fit the other shoes, they can be removed and switched. This is especially true if you intend to wear them for an extended period of time and want to be able to move them. While it is true that you can theoretically shift your insoles from one pair of shoes to another, as humans we have a tendency to forget these things, putting your feet at risk. If you want to witness the actual effects of retraining your feet and posture, make sure the shoes you use the most frequently have their own, dedicated pair of insoles. This could imply purchasing two or three pairs of insoles.
