These Editor-Tested Insoles Are Great for Standing All Day in

By Mike Richard of Men's Health | Slide 1 of 11: NO MATTER what you’re doing, if it involves being on your feet for hours at a time, the right footwear makes all the difference. Long days at work, backcountry hikes, hitting the links, intense gym training sessions—they’re all made better with footwear that balances comfort and support. Of course, good looks and a decent price don’t hurt, either. But there’s one thing that can make even the best sneakers and the best hiking boots better: Insoles.Believe it or not, insoles aren’t just for your grandpappy or those cursed with flat feet. Many of today’s best insoles are designed for everyday wear by anyone who just wants to feel more comfortable on their feet. For seriously active guys, there are purpose-built insoles for everything from running to hiking to helping alleviate plantar fasciitis. Bottom line: If you’re the sort of fellah who spends most of his time vertical and on the go, you’ll benefit from a good pair of insoles. (Investing in the best shoes you can afford helps, too, of course).But between finding the proper arch support to knowing which kind of foam is best for your personal needs, shopping for insoles can be tricky. If you’re ready to jump feet first (get it?) into the world of insoles, we’re here to help. We shopped and compared models from best-selling brands like Superfeet, Brison, and Currex to find the best of the best. Here are our top picks for the best insoles worth buying in 2023.Best Running Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis | Best Running Shoes | Best Recovery Shoes for Runners | Best Walking Shoes | Best Shoes for Standing All DayAbout the Expert: I’ve spent most of my life hiking, kayaking, camping, and exploring the great outdoors. For more than a decade, I’ve traveled the world, including all seven continents, and covered outdoor and adventure travel, sharing my advice on Forbes, Travel + Leisure, CNET, and National Geographic. These days, I personally evaluate outdoor gear, tech gadgets, and sportswear (like the best insoles) for Men’s Health from my home base south of Boston. So, you might say I’m a little gear-obsessed.
