Best Insoles: Everything You Need to Know

Shop Move Insoles

Today we take a deep dive into what I believe are the best insoles on the market today, Move Insoles.

Insoles are a very important and often overlooked feature of a shoe. Most of us assume that the stock insole of a sneaker is all we need, but this is rarely ever the case. A good insole can boost the performance of a sneaker, provide arch support, enhance responsiveness, and help you avoid injury in the long term. Even for casual shoes, a good insole can be a game-changer, which begs the question: What are the best insoles?

You’ve probably already heard of Move Insoles. Although WearTesters was the first to introduce them into the YouTube space, they have become a wildly popular non-custom orthotic, and for good reason. Today, I am taking an in-depth look into these excellent insoles, which, full disclaimer, I helped develop.

Why are Move insoles the best insoles on the market?

The easiest way to answer that question is the price. Custom orthotics may have Move insoles slightly beat on customized performance, but the price point for custom orthotics makes them a luxury that most of us can’t afford.

Move insoles pack a ton of performance features designed to cater to most foot types, and are available in any size. There are two models currently available: The Game Day and the Game Day Pro.

The Game Day offers a sturdy EVA torsion plate that provides arch support and the Shockfree foam provides step-in comfort. The GameDay Pro on the other hand (the more performance-driven model) features a nylon torsion plate for extra support which is just as rigid as carbon fiber. It features the brand’s top-of-the-line Pulsion Energyfoam, which lasts longer but is denser.

Move Insoles are simply the best non-custom insoles you’ll find for both casual use and to enhance performance on the court or field.

What’s in the video?

Footwear has become more and more complicated as time passes by. Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain used to play in Converse All-Stars. While those were the best option at the time, anyone who has recently worn a pair can attest to their lack of comfort, especially in the cushion department. About 70 years later, we have Nike Air, adidas Boost, and New Balance FuelCell. We have come a long way. Something that seems to have been neglected, however, is the insoles.

In the video, I answer a lot of different questions that people have surrounding insoles in general, and Move insoles in particular. For example:

  • What is the difference between custom insoles and Move Insoles? What about their pros and cons?

Custom insoles or custom orthotics are made with your foot as the mold, so they should fit you one-to-one. All the possible needs of your feet that insoles can help are taken into consideration and they really should be since custom insoles can cost hundreds of dollars and even thousands. That’s its biggest con. Move Insoles may not be customized to your feet, but they’re still anatomically correct enough to fit most everyone’s feet and needs. Plus, they won’t cost you an arm and a leg. For the everyday person/athlete, these work comfortably well. Players like Damian Lillard and Chris Paul use Move Insoles as their go-to orthotic during NBA games.
