I was apprehensive to try Protalus due to cost and because I was simply unsure what I was looking for in an insert. But the graphics in the ad showing how the Protalus fits and provides stability resonated and information from other reviewers helped me decide to make the investment. I chatted with a representative who provided guidance on sizing and suggested the M-100 for my son’s specific needs.
It took a few days of adjusting to wearing them, but they’ve been a game changer for my son.

I play USTA tennis, so arch support and ankle alignment is very important! Love the product! Thank you

I never knew what plantar fasciitis was, my mom had it and said it was painful. I played in a soccer tournament in New Zealand (middle of April) but this foot pain started to hit me at the beginning of April. I could barely walk and caused me to limp around until the pain went away.

After knee surgery a few years back and an MCL tear just a few months ago, I have chronic knee issues. I've been wearing nothing but shoes with these amazing insoles in them to help with my knee for the last few weeks straight. Today I grabbed a pair of shoes I wear less often and forgot to switch out the insole. I can feel my ankle breaking in hard…

Protalus insoles helped me through my professional soccer career. Knee and heal pain instantly gone after wearing these for one week. I don't put my feet in shoes that do not have these insoles in them. Hands down the best insoles you can get!

My feet hurt less!!

I am an avid runner, physical education teacher, and coach and spend a lot of time on my feet. I developed plantar fasciitis in August 2016, and I was wearing the Green Feet brand. They were ok but a little too hard. I thought I would give protalus a try and I love them. My feet feel so much better and don't hurt after a long day of work!! They have a lot of support, and the arches have a lot of cushion in the heel area. Thank you for such a wonderful product!!

I am Wilfer Henderson, NSCA-CPT, and I run 5K races as a pleasure I have purchased many different shoes that have only helped get me through races, but on this morning I placed the inserts in a pair of shoes that would cause me pain when I run. The results are that I ran 4 miles and went from a 8:55 per mile pace with pain to a 8:28 pace on my first day of using these inserts without any pain, and for a bonus I could have finished even faster, but I was anticipating the usual pain in my quads in the 4th mile which was run at 7:26. Excited about my next 5K on Saturday, looking forward to a new 5K record on a hard course. Thanks to Protalus!

Bought these last year when they did a hospital visit. I am a Nurse and a long time Runner with some back/knee issues; wear them at work and for my runs. I had both professionally fitted ones, where I paid $400 and other brands expensive and did not last. Loves these! These have....

I have had chronic Achilles tendinitis since 2003 when the tendon separated from the bone. I got to the point where I just accepted that pain was just now a part of my life. When your ad popped up in my feed, I was a bit skeptical but figured I'd try them and return them if they didn't work. I've been wearing them for two weeks now.....

I was hoping for a miracle when I ordered the Model T inserts, and it worked. Several months ago I was refitted for running shoes. They said I needed stability shoes when I've always been in neutral shoes. I switched to the stability shoes and slowly began to wear them. The result was......

I registered for my 2nd (WTM) Worl ds Toughest Mudder. It's a 24-hour event. I didn't want to rely on the super glue that I applied to the toe region on the Ortholite insoles for the event. A friend recommended that I check out Protalus.
