Dr. Scholl's Active Series Influenster Review

Influenster sent me some complimentart Dr. Scholl's Active Series insoles to try out and review.

I am generally pretty active, so I was interested to see how these worked.  I wouldn't say I needed them though.  I wear neutral and minimal running shoes, meaning I like little to no support in my shoes.  I like to feel the ground below me and wearing cushioned shoes actually bothers my feet.

Here are some benefits that the insoles say they will deliver:

The first time I tried these out I used them on the elliptical at the gym.  I ended up staying on the machine for almost 2 hours while I watched Spirit of the Marathon.  They seemed to work fine, but my toenails on my big toes sort of throbbed.  I think it was a combo of me needing to cut them and the insoles being thicker than the normal ones so my toes were hitting the top of my shoe more.

I also started wearing them to work.  I have a very active job and am literally running around for 8 hours straight.  The first couple of days, I noticed the insoles were pushing up on my arch.  It caused some discomfort, but I didn't notice it after awhile.  They seem comfortable enough and haven't caused any more discomfort after the arch problem.

Would I buy them?  Probably in no.  Like I said, I like minimal shoes and don't need the extra cushion, especially when working out.  I will keep using them in my work shoes though.

Have you ever used insoles?  What kind?
