Best Leather Insoles 2020

Wednesday, 3 June 2020

When it comes to footwear, like in many other walks of life, the classics are often the best. Compared to the cheap synthetic materials of most modern insoles, leather breathes better, retains its shape for longer, and will help avoid common foot problems like excessive sweating and athlete's foot, making it unbeatable for those on their feet for long hours of the day.

Best Leather Insoles for Breathability and Comfort
Leather insoles are breathable and durable, providing long-term support and comfort

But with so many insoles out there, how are you to separate the good from the bad? At ShoeInsoles.co.uk, we're here to help, and we've had our experts come up with a conclusive list of the Best Leather Insoles, using plenty of feedback from our customers as a guideline. These insoles provide excellent comfort, breathability and support to prove that most of the time, you just can't beat the classics.


Best Leather Insoles for Odour Control

Woly Comfort Natural Leather InsolesStarting our list out strong is a pair of insoles that combines elegant design with comfort and support: the Woly Comfort Natural Leather Insoles. They contain a natural charcoal middle layer for excellent odour control, with a thin latex foam bottom to provide extra cushioning, making them ideal for providing a classy and discreet improvement in multiple areas.

  • Made with a luxury, high-quality leather to boost comfort while protecting the shoe's footbed
  • Our Top Pick for Odour Control thanks to a natural charcoal middle layer
  • Con: Don't provide very much arch support compared to options below


Best Cushioning Leather Insoles

Pedag Viva InsolesThe right leather insoles can completely transform the comfort of your shoes, turning a comfortable pair into one you'll want to wear everywhere. The Pedag Viva Insoles are a perfect example, providing shock absorption as well as support for your arches, forefeet and heels. For those looking to support the heel and metatarsals with less bulk, these are also available as Viva Mini Insoles.

  • Prevent foot fatigue for those on their feet for long hours
  • Our Top Pick for Cushioning thanks to soft metatarsal pads and heel cushions
  • Con: Extra cushioning provides extra thickness – not ideal for the tightest of footwear


Best Leather Insoles for Knee and Back Pain

Footactive Nature and Nature Plus InsolesFoot alignment is a problem for plenty of our customers, with supinating and pronating gaits that cause instability as well as back pain  and knee pain over time. The Footactive Nature and Nature Plus Insoles are designed to align the foot, preventing the ankle from turning to the side for a healthy, comfortable gait that keeps undue strain off of the joints.

  • Designed to align the foot to prevent rolled ankles, supination and overpronation
  • Our Top Pick for Knee and Back Pain with an anatomical shape that corrects the gait
  • Con: Slightly more expensive than the other options on our list


Most Breathable Leather Insoles for Hot Feet

Pedag Leather Full InsolesOne of the main benefits of leather insoles is that they can help create an ideal climate for your feet – reducing moisture and odour to prevent infection while enhancing comfort. Working to the strengths of leather, the Pedag Leather Full Insoles do just that. Helping to prevent foot odour and keep your feet feeling fresh, these insoles are an ideal choice for hot summer days.

  • Comfortable and light –- perfect for keeping feet fresh on hotter days
  • Our Top Pick for Breathability with a combination of breathable leather and sheepskin
  • Con: Quite thin with the lowest level of cushioning on our list


Best Leather Insoles for Arch Support

Pedag Magic Step Plus Memory Foam Arch Support InsolesWhile synthetic materials can't provide the same overall quality as leather insoles, memory foam can add an important cushioning factor. The Pedag Magic Step Plus Memory Foam Arch Support Insoles provide a little bit of everything – with breathable moulding leather, built-in arch support and a memory foam layer for extra cushioning.

  • Help to reduce foot fatigue while cushioning the heels and staving off odour
  • Our Top Pick for Arch Support with a sturdy arch covered by forgiving memory foam
  • Con: Aren't quite as breathable as some of the insoles above

No matter what kind of shoes you're looking to improve, you really can't go wrong with a reliable leather insole. Trying to control odour, moisture and heat? Or are you looking for long-lasting comfort, support and contouring to your feet? Leather provides all of these benefits and more, proving that if you're really looking for the best, it's a good idea to stick to the classics.
