            When Should You Replace Your Insoles?

            Typically a good pair of insoles that experience normal wear and tear should last you about 6 to 9 months. However, there are many factors that can make you have to change them out sooner than that.

            Factors that will impact when you need to replace your insoles:
            1. Brand quality: Top over the counter brands will last you longer than knock-offs, imitations, and other low quality brands. 
            2. Brand style: Cushioned insoles tend to wear quicker than orthotics made with plastics or carbon fiber.
            3. Type of material: Insoles made entirely of foam will wear quicker than insoles that have a combination of foam and plastic.
            4. Body weight
            5. Amount of time worn and frequency of use
            6. Type of activities performed: High impact activities like running or football will wear insoles quicker compared to casual use.

            Typical signs of wear and tear can be damage to the insole, tearing or cracking, discoloration, smell, or compression (the flattening of the insole).
