Dr. Scholl's Active Series Review

If you spend a lot of time on your feet or are involved in athletics, the right foot wear and support is very important.  Aerobic exercise puts plenty of impact on feet, 2-3 times body weight with each step.

I don’t buy expensive running shoes, nor do I buy new shoes often. Hey, I’m on a budget, after all! I usually wear inserts in my shoes to make them more comfortable.

Influenster gave me the opportunity to try a complimentary pair of Dr. Scholl’s Active Series Insoles. I’ve been wearing them for about two weeks, and I can honestly say that these are among the most comfortable that I have worn.

What They Do

Dr. Scholl’s Active Series is designed with athletes in mind. They reduce the shock by 40%. The help to prevent and relieve pain from shin splints, runner’s knee, and plantar fasciitis.

Each insole provides ball of foot, arch, and heel protection. The ball of the foot gets a soft cushion, for extra padding and to distribute pressure. The heel has a deep cup to absorb impact. The insole also has an arch support, which my feet really like.

One thing that I hate about exercise is getting pain afterwards. Sometimes I get shin splints and plant fasciitis. So anything that I can do to reduce stress and the chance of getting pain, is a plus.


Dr. Scholl’s Active Series is available in two sizes for men 7 1/2-10 and 10 1/2-13 and two sizes for women 5 1/2-8 and 8 1/2-11. Each insole is trimmable to the appropriate size needed. Just take out the original insole from your shoe and match it up and trim the Active Series insole to the correct size.

They vary in price from $19.99 to $24.99. They have an expected lifetime of about six months, and will need replacing at the first signs of wear.
Now on the Dr. Scholl's website, there is a coupon offer to save $4 on Active Series Insoles.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
