SmartSole Exercise Insoles

When I first heard about SmartSole Exercise Insoles, I was very very very interested.  There is a definite “Fitness Shoe” trend going on right now, and although I wanted to jump on that bandwagon… I really couldn’t afford it.  And since I wasn’t really sure of the benefits, I was hesitant to even try to save up for a pair.  So I just watched from the sidelines… wondering if the shoes were really helping people or if it was a bunch of hype.

Then SmartThingz, the company that makes SmartSole Exercise Insoles, contacted me about doing a review and giveaway.  I was thrilled and very excited.  If you follow my blog regularly, you know I’m interested in fitness tools and love to try out and promote great fitness products.  So I was totally game!

And what excited me even more than the nature of this product was the price:  Only $29.99 for a pair!

How it Works…

According to the SmartThingz website, SmartSole Exercise Insoles “enables your foot to go through a gentle rolling motion enabling the heel, arch and then toe to touch the ground in sequence. Cushion, roll forward, and then roll off. Comfortably. Naturally, like you’re walking barefoot on sand. This optimal gait stimulates your metabolism, speeds up muscle regeneration and works to tone and tighten your legs and butt.”

Exercise Insoles Review

When I received my SmartSole Exercise Insoles, I eagerly tore open the package and examined them.  At the point where my heel would hit, there is a purple circular gel area that feels firm but gives just a bit for comfort.  There is plenty of insole support, and it gets thicker at the heel, too, so that the back of your foot is slightly elevated in the shoe.  It looks like something you would want in your shoe just for comfort!

I grabbed my favorite pair of Skechers and slipped the insoles inside.  They went in easy and really conformed to my shoe immediately.  They don’t slip around or anything!  Off I went for a walk with my daughter.  By the time I returned, I was feeling it in my thighs!  Yes!

These insoles are surprisingly comfortable, so much so that I keep them in my shoes at all times and wear them everywhere.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them!   It’s obvious to me that they are effective and it’s a huge bonus that they’re so comfortable that I actually forget they’re in my shoe.

They’re pretty worn here – I’ve been using them for months!

I think this is a great addition to my exercise regime!  I wouldn’t expect instant killer thighs with these, or you might be disappointed – but I truly believe that having them in my shoes gives me an extra boost of toning and exercise while walking.  They also have improved my posture and given me great foot support!   Oh, and I love that they’re good shock absorbers when running.  They’re definitely more than worth the price of $29.99 to me, and give me great incentive to get out there and exercise!
