1. put all the text through a spell checker!! it's not the 1920's, you're not on a typewriter... spellchecking really isn't difficult, and takes about 5 minutes tops. 2. pretty thorough and overall decent instructable. 3. bear in mind that these are not the same as properly designed ones, and if you suffer from foot problems then visiting your podiatrist is better, but for some extra cushioning i like the idea :)

absolute fail...

If anything I would have thought to take the piss out of TheScientist's capitalisation fail.

"ped" in medicine refers to childrens health, e.g. pediatrician.
"pod" refers to "of the foot"

Use a dictionary next time.

They may be pretty good to go under the original insoles for when the shoes start going to bits aswell, I've found the middle layer takes the worst of it as the actual sole wears...

What if you put like yoga mat material under the old insoles for comfort, not sports, you know, like extra cushioning and support for casual wear or light walking

I wouldn't call these "sport" insoles...

milamber (author)jjewels1192008-11-24

why not? they improve comfort and cushioning

1) If you actually do any running in these insoles, they will break down very very quickly. 2) The material looks slick, so if you were running in these your foot would slide around in your shoe. These would be fine for normal day-to-day use, but not for actual sports. Resources: I worked at a shoe store for 2 years and I am a runner myself.

milamber (author)jjewels1192008-11-25

actualy my feet do not slip at all they break down only slitly faster than normal insoles but there heeps cheaper and i find they give more suport

jjewels119 (author)milamber2008-11-25

That maybe, but from the photo of your original insoles it is clear that your shoes are too short for your feet. Your feet have no wear to move if they wanted to. A proper fitting shoe would leave a little room in them, which I'm guess because of the material they would slide. I doubt that your shoes are being used for sports because they are casual shoes (in the photo). I'm not saying your insoles wouldn't be better than the standard one that is in your shoe, just that I wouldn't recommend them for sports.

ok i reaced badly and ya write my shoes are short however they perform as briliant shoes for the stuff i do (mostly amature parkour) ty 4 the constructive critisim

milamber (author)milamber2008-11-27

opps i ment to say i reacted badly and that yes my shoes are to short but the insoles are great for comfort and suport

jjewels119 (author)milamber2008-11-27

I'm going to be honest here... I have no idea what you just said.
