Sole Softec Ultra footbeds£38.00

Can be moulded to fit your foot exactly

BikeRadar score3/5

These footbeds from sole can be moulded to fit your foot exactly, either through days of use or in the oven, which is the option we went for. After a few attempts at careful trimming and a couple of minutes in the oven, into the shoes they went, along with our feet, for the two minute moulding period.

Our first impressions were that the sole is quite thick, almost trying to raise the foot too far in the shoe, but after they had moulded to our feet and bedded in, they created a nice snug feel. Once installed, we found that the support from our standard insoles was a load better, and they made our shoes more comfortable to wear for long periods.
