I bought these on a whim at Costco several years ago for my extremely flat feet that were causing pain in my shins. I was amazed at how comfortable they were. They provide good arch support, and because they are full length, they don't slide around in my shoes. They seem to help with the pain in my shins and I've been able to walk around for 8-10 hours in theme parks, etc. in comfort. I just ordered new orthotics directly from the website since they no longer carry them at Costco. My teenage son (similar issues with flat feet) tried them and liked them so much that he took them right out of my shoes and put them in his! Just ordered him a pair that is closer to his actual size, so I can have mine back. :-)
You cannot buy theses at retail stores. I have looked. The more resistant form of thes insoles sare definitely better for plantar fasciitis. I have two pairs. Love them.
I love these inserts! I’m going to order more!
I have a very high arch. These are good. Would have given 5 stars if they had a metatarsal bump.
I have used the women's Active insert for about three years. I have very flat feet and my doctor recommended a different brand that was not very comfortable and said to get a custom insert if the pre-made ones did not work. I saw these at Costco(not the custom made ones, these were pre-made in a package) and figured they were a lot less expensive than going to a doctor for custom made ones, so I tried a pair. They lasted in good shape for three years until the padding on the edge of the heel finally wore through. They had very good support and some padding and flexibility which made them very comfortable. The other brand the doctor recommended was made so the whole insert is stiff and inflexible and the Orthera brand is much more comfortable and has just as good arch support. I wore these in my regular everyday shoes and in my slippers around the house which worked well because they have some cushion so they were very comfortable. I did not hesitate to buy a second pair to replace the first pair after they lasted so long and felt the same on the first day as they did on the last day of use. The new pair feel the same as the old pair and I'm using them the same way and they feel great. They reduce leg, foot and ankle fatigue and aches that I was having when I did not use them. Very happy I found them. I wish you still sold them at Costco in the store, but ordering them from the Orthera website was not bad and they came quickly and once I saw they were exactly the same as the old ones I was very happy. I definitely recommend them to anyone who needs good arch support.
I have very flat feet and have used the women's Active insert for a few years and also another brand of inserts but wanted more cushion than either one of those gave me. The Foot Armor insert has the same support as the Active insert but has about twice the cushion. Much more comfortable as long as your shoe has the room for a little more padding. These are just as supportive as another brand of arch supports that I used that are made so the whole insert is stiff and inflexible with no cushioning. I like these better because I get the same support but the toe area is flexible and they have a fair amount of cushioning which makes these a lot more comfortable than the other brand. Also, I know these are made more for sports/heavy activity but I wear them in my everyday shoe just to run errands. They are very comfortable, and depending on how long I'm on my feet they reduce or eliminate leg fatigue and reduce or eliminate ankle and foot aches because of the extra cushion. Will definitely buy again.
The sports inserts were exactly what my boyfriend needed. He's on his feet all day at work and by the end of the day his feet and back ached. I got these inserts for him to try and he said they made such a huge difference.
The Orthera Women's Active/Sport Inserts are the best purchase I have made. They are very comfortable, and they hold up well (for as hard as I am on shoes). This is the only shoe insert I will wear in my shoes. Having bone spurs in both of my heels, this product is exactly what I needed to relieve pain in my feet.
The Orthera Women's Dress/Everyday Inserts are the best purchase I have made. They are very comfortable, and they hold up well (for as hard as I am on shoes).

I get to wear shoes I like and my feat feel good and not crowded. What's not to like.

this is the second pair after I got them from costco. i just wish they would continue to be sold in costco. relieves back pain from my supination feet
I have a very high arch and plater fasciitis, and these inserts have saved me from various pains of having the above.
These fit to any shoe to make them comfortable. Highly recommend both women’s dress and also Ultrathin ones. Ultrathin ones fit to high-heel or narrow shoes very well and give arch support that is otherwise missing.
Very happy with purchase as the inserts prevent the pain / swelling from my heel spurs.
In the past I bought them at Costco but sadly they no longer carry them. They helped with my heel spurs and haven't had a problem for years.
I Love my Insoles from Orthera! I have a terrible time finding shoes that fit because I wear a Women's size 11 N (double narrow actually). I also have really bad arches! I discovered Orthera 'Active' Insoles while shopping at Costco and decided to try a pair. I fell in love with them! When I returned to Costco about a month later, I found they were no longer carrying them in the store. I decided to check out the Orthera Website online. I was delighted to find they carried the Insoles I wanted and much more! I purchased four more pair of insoles (2 "Active and 2 Armor) to put in my other shoes.
The ordering process was super easy, the customer service people answered all my questions, helped me with every concern, and the product arrived in a timely manner.
The insoles have helped my shoes fit much better and the arch support really helps my plantar fasciitis. With my new insoles, it makes my shoes feel like they're almost brand new! Happy feet- Happy life!
Can't say enough good about this product and the people who make them!
I’m a mailman and these have saved my feet!
I have used the inserts for sometime. Bought them at Costco. Best inserts for the money. I love these inserts. Makes walking so much better.
I had to order from BIOM, LLC this time as Costco does not carry them.
