Superfeet ADAPT™ Insoles Range review by JC
Superfeet has had two exciting product launches this summer; the all-new ADAPT™ Run Collection and the introduction of ADAPT Hike Max Insoles. Easy to wear, these insoles represent an evolution of Superfeet technology — an alternative to the firm foundation of traditional Superfeet, with a soft, flexible feel that’s made to feel like part of your running shoes. The cushioned running insoles are available in two different arch heights: ADAPT Run with a thinner profile and lower arch and ADAPT Run Max with a deeper heel cup and higher arch profile whereas the ADAPT Hike Max comes in one arch height for maximum comfort on short and long hikes.
The ADAPT collection’s patented Adaptive Comfort Technology™ design flexes with the foot for efficient heel-to-toe turnover. A responsive forefoot zone blends cushioning and rebound for maximum energy transfer, while a heel cushion disperses impact and reduces vibration to minimise fatigue. The durable Aerolyte™ dual comfort layer helps keep the foot relaxed and provides optimal cushioning, and the addition of MoistureWick™ aids with breathability and odour control.
In addition to a meticulous in-house testing program, Superfeet utilised the brand’s diverse team of adventure minded running and hiking ambassadors to rigorously test the new insoles on demanding hikes and in varied terrain. “After a minor knee injury, I visited a physical therapist who recommended some exercises, along with Superfeet insoles to maintain better alignment and movement. I replaced the insoles in old hiking boots of mine with the ADAPT Hike Max insoles after trimming them to fit, and I noticed a difference immediately! Now I can hike longer and more often,” says Christine La (@xtine.lotus), Superfeet Ambassador.

“I have been looking for some insoles to make my feet a little more comfortable particularly the right foot. When I ran with the ADAPT insoles I had zero pain, 5 stars.” – Marc Blake
“The ADAPT insoles allow me to lace up and run mountains without thinking about if my feet will be happy or not. They’re incredibly comfortable right off the bat and are my new go-to insoles!” – Kelly
