Height causes foot to slip out of shoe,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Orthotic insoles Full length with arch supports, metatarsal and heel Cushion for plantar fasciitis treatment (Shoes)
Waste of money for me.
My son needs assistance with flat feet issue. These are just too high for use in school shoes.

I've got a pair of these and they were approximately the same thickness as the insoles that I took out of my shoes; the only difference being the added support for the arches, without wanting to appear patronising, did you take the original insoles out or just put these on top?

I have the same problem with my son, daughter and myself. I cannot find a pair of insoles that fit into a pair of school shoes for either child. My son has to wear trainers (insoles fit perfectly) and my daughter has to wear boots. Really is a nightmare but the school have been very understanding, letter from doctor helped.

If you had taken proper time to read the 4th paragraph carefully, you will see that it tells you for what kind of shoes these insoles are suitable.

You get this with all orthotic insoles. The ones I got from a private doctor (at colossal expense) are literally useless as there is simply no pair of shoes on earth they would fit into and still leave room for a foot!
If your son really needs these, you need to find a god enough practitioner to make the whole special shoe rather than just the insert. Failing that, trainers are the easiest thing to fit them into - if you get a note from the doctor the school has to allow children to wear trainers to school even when they are not part of the school uniform.

A few tips which have worked for me which may be useful. If you take the insoles when you try a new pair of shoes then you can allow for the extra length. If depth of the foot is the problem, using a three quarter or half insole will support the arch and cushion the heel, leaving enough room for the toes to not be crushed. Lace up shoes or boots can make the necessary allowance.
