I've been running regularly over the past 4 years and finally feel confident with my abilities. I was fairly naive when I started running and didn't know how much your nutrition, hydration, and gear can affect your run. Now, I'm really in tune with my body and can usually tell if it's going to be a "good run" within the first few hundred meters. Fueling my body properly and having the right equipment can make all the difference. When BabbleBoxx told me that Superfeet, the leader in over-the-counter orthotics for the specialty run and outdoor markets, was launching two new running insoles, I enthusiastically signed up to try a pair.
ADAPT Run and ADAPT Run Max are completely new designs for Superfeet. They're much more flexible than their other insoles and feature Adaptive Comfort Technology™, a patented design that flexes and adapts to the way your feet move for more efficient heel-to-toe turnover.
I chose the ADAPT Run Max insoles, which have a deeper heel cup and higher arch profile than Superfeet ADAPT Run. ADAPT Run Max offers medium to high arch orthotic support to help stabilize the foot during runs, but they won't affect the way your shoes were designed to function. This is great since I have a tendency to pronate and need stability running shoes.
These insoles feature Durable Aerolyte™, a dual comfort layer that helps your foot relax in the shoe while providing optimal cushioning. They've also got an energizing heel cushion that disperses impact & reduces vibration to minimize fatigue.
The insoles come in several sizes and you just trim them to fit your running shoes using your current inserts as a template. Superfeet ADAPT Run insoles have the signature Superfeet shape and are made to help disperse the impact from the ground to minimize stress and strain. They're also made of MoistureWick™ material for improved wicking and breathability.
After trimming, my insoles fit perfectly inside my running shoes. These lightly structured, cushioned running insoles are made to feel like part of your shoes and that's certainly true. They felt like a dream.
Superfeet claims that these insoles have no break-in period and I could tell that was true the moment I slipped my foot into my running shoes. The support and cushioning the insoles provide were perfect for my feet. I found them to be lightweight and molded to my foot from the first wear. They really deliver in the comfort department and make running more enjoyable.
After trying these running orthotics on a 3-mile run, I decided to see if the insoles would transfer well between brands and they did. I've got a pair of running shoes that never felt like they "broke in" and my new Superfeet ADAPT Run Max inserts solves this problem. I can now wear that specific pair of shoes (or any pair really) without having achy, fatigued feet and legs. I can't wait to see how these insoles perform during my half marathon training over the next two months.
