Sole inserts for Converse Chucks

Can anyone recommend any sole inserts for converse chucks?

After wearing them for a day, the bottom of my foot hurts.


I'd like a small cushioning...I am flat footed .

Anything I can buy for the time being?

I wear Vans and no problem. I have these sole inserts for my 2 pairs of Vans and they are comfy, except they do not fit into my Converses.

Just wondering if I can get any OTC type of insert.

I put those Dr. Shoal's gel inserts in some of my Frye boots. They are comfortable. They might make your feet hot, though.

Thanks everyone!

I'll just have to find something thin/small enough to fit in Converses since their so sleek.

I just buy those .99 store brand thin foam inserts for my chucks. All the others are too thick and push my foot against the top of the shoe and make it even more painful.

Yeah! Those sound good
I just want to take the stiffness/hardness away from the ball of my foot.

I second the vote for superfeet; it's what I use in my chucks. I use the blue ones, because the pink (orange if you're a boy) and green are too high volume, and the black doesn't give enough arch support for me.

I wear my converse doing new store openings (read: 14 hour days) and never have a problem with pain or fatigue. Well, other than the normal fatigue from working a week's worth of 14 hour days.

Ah I see!
What size would you suggest for a shoe size of 8.5? I kind of have a feeling that getting the exact insert size as my shoe will not fit at all. TIA

Go to a store that sells them and they'll know how to fit you for them. (I know REI will do this, but I'm not sure of anyplace else...)

The insoles come in about 6 different sizes, and you trim the front part to fit in your shoe. You can ask the sales specialist to trim them for you if you don't feel confident doing it yourself. Again, I know they'll do this for you at REI, but I don't know about other places.

Ultimately, you want to get the size that fits your foot (not your shoe) and trim it to fit inside the shoe.

Hope that helps! If you're planning on attempting to mail order them, just get whatever size they recommend for your shoe size. (Probably a d?)

Thanks for the info!

I also read that you're suppose to take out the old insole.

How did you do that with the Converse?

Went to the local grocer and bought some 3$ insole pads for cushioning.

WOW, big difference.

My feet feel so comfortable now

Thanks everyone!
