Do you recommend Hoka's with insoles AND custom orthotics or should I remove their insoles and use only my custom orthotics?
Asked 2 years ago
Hello, I have been wearing my new Hoka's Clifton 7's for around 2 weeks now, finally feeling the comfort as in no heel pain but I was hoping they had more of a bounce as I am already flat-footed. How many of you wear Hoka's as they are or remove their insole and put your own orthotic in? Trying to find a solution that makes them feel less flat. Thanks

I don't recommend wearing both the insoles from your Hokas and custom orthotics.
If you were using OTC insoles, you'd probably need both sets of insoles for the best comfort. However, custom insoles are different. Custom orthotics factor in the exact shape of your foot, and they also factor in the shape and type of shoes you'll be wearing. This means the insoles from your Hokas won't be necessary.
Just remember that it's best to buy orthotics for either everyday wear or sports for optimum benefits. Upstep offers different custom insoles suited for each activity to offer you very targeted support and comfort.

Yes! I recommend using custom orthotics with Hoka shoes. I have a pair, and I use Upstep custom orthotics to give me more support and comfort. Hoka insoles are removable and should be removed if you are going to insert Upstep custom orthotics. Hoka's insoles have plenty of cushioning, so if you don't take the original insoles out, the chances are that the orthotics won't sit well in the shoe. I suggest you take a look at some of the Upstep orthotics on offer. Here's a link to Upstep's shop: https://www.upstep.com/shop/all-orthotics

Are your Hokas Clifton 7’s stability shoes? Stability shoes are shoes that are meant to fix pronation issues by adding in a higher density material to the medial side of the shoe near the mid-foot or heel. Only that the support in them might not really fit you. Which is what Upstep custom orthotics do really well - the are made according to your feet needs.
Imagine folding a napkin to balance out the leg of a table; now you can enjoy a nice meal, right? Well, if your friend tries to add another napkin to the same table leg that was already corrected, then the whole thing is thrown off again. Adding an orthotic to a shoe… same idea. You may have to remove the insole. I recommend removing the insole and replacing it with one of Upstep's custom orthotics because they are tailored specifically to help with your pronation problems.
