OrthoLite Fusion Insoles {Review & Giveaway - 3 Winners}


Featured Sponsor



With the new year, I've made a promise to myself to exercise more... and sometimes with that, comes unfortunate soreness. Sore muscles, sore body, sore feet. Yikes!  Often times, it's hard to motivate when you ache and especially when your feet (or as I like to call them) *dogs are barkin'*. I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to review  OrthoLite Fusion Insoles. Who knew I would be so VERY thrilled to try out new insoles.

If you haven't exactly heard of OrthoLite, chances are you probably have and just didn't know it! Every year, over 100 Million pairs of athletic and outdoor shoes are built with OrthoLite as their insole technology. Check out some of the top brands using OrthoLite insoles

So, What Makes OrthoLite Insoles so Special?
  • Insoles are designed to fit all athletic and outdoor shoes or boots
  • Made with open-cell foam, allowing air to circulate around the foot, keeping it cooler and drier inside the shoe
  • Wicks moisture away from your foot leaving your foot cooler and drier (who wants sweaty feet, yuck!)
  • Unique spring-back technology ensures that your insole won’t flatten out and it will retain over 95% of its thickness over time
  • Our patented anti-microbial formulation (approved by the EPA and FDA) fights fungus, bacteria and shoe odor
  • Lightweight and fully washable (LOVE THIS!)
  • OrthoLite supports the sports (yes, AWESOME) – OrthoLite is the only insole sponsor of the American Trail Running Association.
  • Comfort guarantee – OrthoLite prides itself on comfort. If you don’t notice an immediate difference between your new OrthoLite insole and the one you replaced, you will receive a full refund. A company that stands behind it's products. A+
ace and friends thoughts: So, would insoles really make a difference in my shoes? Because OrthoLite insoles do not come in half sizes, I had to order a half size up and then trim them down to fit appropriately in my athletic shoes. I wear an Asic shoe so I was interested to see if it would actually support my foot or be a nuisance. First up, step class. I trimmed up my Fusion Insole and inserted into my shoes prior to class. My first impression is that it felt different, not bad different, but interesting different. I continued with my class and admittedly, after an hour, my feet felt pretty darn good. Second test, running on the track. I have to confess, I am certainly NOT a runner by any means, but I wanted to give these inserts a run (ha, ha) for their money. In all fairness, I was truly impressed with the comfort my feet actually felt while running along the track. Final verdict: Good support, light weight (so it didn't feel bulky in my shoe) and my feet actually felt drier. Weird, but true! So... I'm keeping my OrthoLite Insoles in!

I learned from the Ortholite link:
Breathable for a cooler foot – OrthoLite insoles are made with open-cell foam, allowing air to circulate around the foot, keeping your foot cooler inside the shoe.


This is a big thing for me since I work in a very very warm environment. Heck, this alone makes me think it would be good for me.
