Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.


Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

I wanted some very thin insoles for my shoes as the insoles for my shoes had seen better days but the shoes themselves were still in good condition. I saw these cork insoles on your web sight and they were just what I was looking for,so instead of throwing a pair of perfectly good shoes I bought you insoles and they are perfect comfortable and inexpensive . Thank you.8

Very grippy
Sunday, 25 October 2020  |  Sophie

These are reasonably slim, so if you want to just raise your foot a small amount, these work well. They're extremely grippy so your feet wont slide around.

cork insoles
Friday, 20 September 2019  |  Lydia

These are nice in the shoe and warm. They solved the problem of degraded original insoles. However, they were very narrow and using a size 7 insole in wide fit size 5 trainers was barely enough. I only trimmed a tiny amount off the toe of the insole - definitely not 2 sizes worth. Buy a much bigger size than you need if you have wide feet.

Effective and comfortable insole
Tuesday, 24 October 2017  |  Andy

Ordering process was simple and item delivered efficiently and within the stated timescale. Product was recommended to me by my local NHS hospital. Very effective for the specific purpose (drop foot) I need the product (application of a foot-switch) and is very comfortable. Would it be feasible to have left or right insoles available as well as a pair?

Hi Andy,

Unfortunately, at the moment, these insoles are only available in a combination pack for both left and right feet. I'm glad that you're finding the insoles of use though!

Best wishes,

Very Comfortable Insole
Monday, 2 October 2017  |  St

Being a natural product (cork) this doesn't cause the feet to sweat so much, and being very thin fits well in just about any shoe. One thing to be aware of is that there is no extra cushioning of the instep. Personally, this is what I wanted - but it may not suit everyone. The product is potentially five stars but I have given it four pending more experience on how long the insoles last.
