Remind Insoles have designed shoe inserts to provide support and cushioning for your feet. They make them with “a proprietary blends of materials specially formulated for support, comfort, and alignment.”
As avid hikers, Remind Insoles reached out to us, asking if Trekers wanted to be affiliates.
As always, I tell companies looking for our potential support that we need to use and review the products first so we can be honest and proud affiliates for a company.
They obliged, offering to send me the Medic Impact and the Medic Classic to test and review. I worked with a member of the Remind team to determine the best option for my shoes and foot type. But you can get similar help by using the company’s “insole finder.” You answer a few questions about your feet. You tell them what type of shoes you’re looking for support in. And you need to know whether your stock insoles are removable. Then they present you with options to purchase.
Remind Insoles says they are effective in relieving a variety of foot pain conditions. They also can help improve your posture and alignment. That can help reduce pain in other parts of your body, such as your back and neck.
If you’re considering trying Remind Insoles, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, they are not a cure for foot pain. However, they can help to relieve pain and improve your overall foot health. Second, Remind Insoles may not be right for everyone. If you have any serious foot problems, you should talk to your doctor before using them.
I decided to put my two sets of insoles to the test in different ways. They designed the Medic Impacts to be a bit thicker and provide more cushioning. So I put those into my Keen hiking boots to offer better protection on the trail. The Medic Classic, which is a slightly thinner insole, went into my Keen workboots.
The results have been quite positive overall. I spend a lot of time each day in my work boots with plenty of walking and standing as a state park camp host. While the original insoles weren’t terrible, I am finding that my feet feel less tired at the end of the day after swapping in the Remind Insoles.
And in my hiking boots, the Remind Insoles have performed admirably, allowing me to put miles of hiking under my feet on all kinds of dirt and rocks here in Utah without any discomfort.
You can trim Remind Insoles as needed to fit in your shoes. I found that the size I ordered fit perfectly into my work boots without trimming. And they fit nearly as well in my hiking boots. For some reason, the new insole wanted to shift on one foot, making the initial contact with the improved arch support feel awkward. They seemed to fit the boot well overall so I didn’t want to trim the insole. Instead, I worked to adjust how it was laying inside the boot and that seemed to help. It seems I need to make sure it’s in the right spot each time I put that one shoe on. But then it stays in place while hiking and is as comfortable as the one in the other boot.
I have to admit I never thought of myself as being in the market for new insoles. The stock insoles in the Keen footwear I buy always seemed adequate. But if you’re on your feet a lot, either in work boots or putting in miles on the hiking trails, consider getting some Remind Insoles. You may find that the tired feet you’ve been dealing with after activities isn’t normal or something that just happens to everyone.
So, I’m going to keep my Remind Insoles in place and continue to enjoy the comfort they provide. Plus, we have decided to join their affiliate program. If you’re interested in finding out more or purchasing some for yourself, just follow our link at www.trekers.org/remind.
