Remind Insoles

About Remind Insoles

Remind was started in 2008 by John Makens.  He was tired of accepting foot pain as being apart of snowboarding and skateboarding.  From his experience orthotics were a huge solution to fill this void. Makens developed some prototypes and gave them out for testing.  The feedback was positive and everyone loved the benefits and what they did for their riding.

About DESTIN Insoles: The softest and thinest insole in the Remind offerings, providing extreme durability, promotes alignment and relieves joint stress.

  • Biomechanically engineered shape
  • Blue Magic Impact Absorption

I’ve talked about my feet issues in previous posts and am always looking for a solution to keep me pain free.  I’ve used so many insoles I think I’ve lost count…custom orthotics, Super Feet, Dr. Scholl’s, etc. I tried some skate specific insoles from Footprint last year and really liked them. The insoles from Remind are a step up in my opinion. Right out of the box, they fit my shoes with out trimming. They are a bit thicker than the stock insoles in most of my shoes so I had to adjust the laces. I’ve primarily used them in my skate shoes but plan to try them in my snowboard boots in the near future.

remindAfter my first time out skating in them, I was pleasantly surprised at how good my knees and feet felt after a long session. They are really comfortable and provide amazing protection to the bottoms of my feet, while providing much needed posture alignment to relive stress on the knees.. The insoles from Footprint were super flat, Remind Insoles have a pretty high arch support to them. The high arch does take some getting used to and made my feet a bit sore the first few times I used them.  They also have been treated to wick away moisture and keep your shoes from stinking, so your wife will enjoy them too!  I’ve been using mine for about 5 months now and they show zero signs of breakdown.  Pain free feet and knees for $29.99…worth every cent!

Pros:

  • No trimming
  • Posture alignment and impact cushioning
  • Extremely durable
  • Price

Cons:

  • Arch takes some getting used to

Remind Insole CUSH

User stats 5’9″, 175lbs, size 9.5 shoe

About Cush Insoles: Designed to alleviate stress on joints, provided better posture and circulation and enhance strength and performance while heightening balance and stability.

  • Arch Support
  • Anti-Microbrial and Mosture Wiking Properties (reduces Odor and keeps your feet dry and cool)

Remind Insoles 9-9.5 Cush insoles fit into my 9.5 shoe with ease. I have very flat feet and Remind Insoles Cush are a bit wide which was a pleasant surprise. At first the additional arch support from these insoles was different, and took a few days to break in. I feel like my posture is better when I’m wearing my shoes with Remind Insoles in them, only time will tell if it has! I’ve used these in my skate shoes for 3 months now and they’ have broken in well still look great, and are comfortable, in the past I’ve had bouts with heal pain after skating and with these insoles I have not experienced any discomfort after any sessions. My feet sweat a lot and the anti-microbial and moisture wicking properties of this insole are great, my feet don’t overheat and the insoles do not smell even after days of not wearing socks, which is a huge bonus!
If you are looking for a reasonably priced, well built insole that will keep you comfortable the Cush is a must.
