RX Sorbo was kind enough to send me their Limited Edition "Pink" SorboAir Insole for review. These SorboAir Insoles are made of advanced air-infused Sorbothane foam to provide lightweight cushioning with airflow channels to provide cooling comfort, Sorbothane heel inlay for maximum heel strike protection, molded arch and deep cupped heel for support, and antimicrobial cool, dry top cover that wicks moisture and helps cut odor. They are recommended for running, walking, hiking, golf, health, wellness, and leisures, aerobics, tennis, and volleyball. And a portion of every “Pink “ insole sold will be donated to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
I've been trying to lose weight recently so I've been doing a lot more exercise and walking than usual. The Limited Edition "Pink" SorboAir Insoles went into my shoes fairly easily and fit securely and stayed in place. I was able to easily get my feet into my shoes with the insoles in them. Having the insoles in my shoes, my shoes did feel a little bit bulkier but that was definitely something that wasn't a big issue for me. On the first day wearing these insoles, it felt as though the top cover of the insoles rubbed my feet and made my feet feel sore and uncomfortable to the point that I almost took the insoles out. After I took my shoes off for the day, I had noticed that the heels of my socks had yellow spots on them and I was racking my brain trying to figure out what could have caused this when I noticed a yellow RX Sorbo logo on each one of the heels of these insoles. I didn't think it was that big of a deal because most of my socks are old anyway and on the verge of needing to be replaced. However, if I were wearing new socks or a pair of performance socks, this would not make me very happy.
On the second day, same story, but by the third day of wearing these insoles, I hardly even noticed that they were in my shoes. I walked on the treadmill, as well as outside, and the more I walked in them, the more comfortable they became. I even shot basketball with my son with no problems. The SorboAir Insoles didn't make my feel feel fatigued and they provided my feet with a lot of support, especially in the heel area. I have hypothyroidism and sometimes as a result my hands and feet stay really, really warm but having these insoles in my shoes didn't seem to make my feet feel any warmer than usual. Finally by the fourth or fifth day of wearing these insoles, I noticed that my heels of my socks were no longer being stained by the logo on the insoles. The insoles also came out of my shoes very easily and I noticed that having the insoles in my shoes didn't cause any damage whatsoever to the inside lining of my shoes. Over the weekend we went to a local car show where we walked/stood for about 3-1/2 hours. We did a lot more standing and talking to friends and family than we did walking and looking at the cars. By the end of the night, my feet were a bit sore but I did notice something that made me very happy, my back didn't hurt at all and my back always hurts after walking/standing at these car shows.
I'm glad that I worked through my initial problems with these insoles and didn't take them out after the first day because I really like them. I'm starting out slow so most of my walking and exercise is low impact so I love that RX Sorbo insoles aren't just for one specific group of people who do one certain type of activity.
