RUNNING INSOLES: A PERFECT MATCH
You walk into a running store and look at a wall of insoles. Does that confuse you? What are they, do I need them, what's with all the rainbow of colors and options? Read on to learn why investing in a running insole could be the answer to longevity, comfort and making your running shoe, the perfect one for you.
Given no foot and no runner are alike, the invention of running insoles was game-changing for runners. Feet, like our minds, change over time. Being able to custom fit an insole to offer your arches, heels the support they need at that given time, is a recipe for a great running season ahead.
Superfeet are the masters of the insole having dedicated their technology, resources and scientific know-how to servicing the soles (and souls?) of runners. Offering running insoles for comfort, arch support and race days, read on to learn which we recommend with this year's collection from HOKA ONE ONE.
FINDING THE PERFECT RUNNING INSOLE FOR YOU
Partnering with HOKA ONE ONE and Superfeet, we worked with the team for their recommendations on suitable Superfeet insoles for some of their key styles.
HOKA ARAHI 4 + SUPERFEET RUN COMFORT
Run Comfort Women's: As the mantra goes, 'women are not small men', and their feet are no exception. With that firmly at the front of their mind, Superfeet have devised the Run Comfort Women's running insole. It is specifically adapted to the geometry of the female foot.
This insole features a narrower heel and specific arch length alongside the tried and tested deep heel cup and impact technology.
HOKA Arahi 4: A classic stability shoe the HOKA Arahi 4 offers structured support for pronators and those needing arch support. Pair with the Run Comfort insole and you get the best of both worlds, support and comfort to keep on running.
HOKA GAVIOTA 2 + SUPERFEET RUN THIN
Superfeet Run Comfort Thin: The Superfeet Run Comfort Thin insole is 20% thinner than other Superfeet styles for the runner who needs a slim fit in their shoes, but also need the support of an insole. The thin profile works with your race shoes and offers no extra bulk for a dialed in fit.
HOKA Gaviota 2: Another stability shoe, the HOKA Gaviota 2 already comes with HOKA's classic cushioning as well as support. So use a slim fit insole to dial in the fit without compromising the cushion that is already there.

Slipped into your running shoe, the insole disperses impact for a more comfortable run allowing you to run longer with more efficiency. Remember, the Run Comfort Max is the 'green insole' when you're shopping and are male, and the 'pink insole' if you're shopping and you're female.
