Get ready to give your feet the pampering they deserve and enjoy miles of comfortable walking!

Step 1: Remove the Old Insoles

Start by removing the old insoles from your shoes. Depending on the shoe and its construction, you may need to use some strength to rip out the insoles. Be careful not to damage the shoe structure in the process. Once the old insoles are removed, take a moment to clean the shoe's footbed, removing any dirt or debris.

Step 2: Prepare the GoTooz Custom Insole Sheets

GoTooz custom insole sheets are designed to provide a personalized fit. Lay out the custom sheet and place your old insole on top of it. Make sure the bottom side of the custom sheet is facing up.

Step 3: Trace the Old Insole

Place your old insole face down or up on top of the custom sheet. Align it with the edges and trace around it using a pen or marker that you can see. This will serve as a template for the new insole.

Step 4: Cut Out the New Insole

Carefully cut along the traced lines to create your new insole. Ensure that you maintain accuracy while cutting. It's better to have a slightly larger insole that can be trimmed later for a perfect fit.

Step 5: Test the Fit

Place the newly cut insole into the opposite shoe upside down to test the fit. Ensure that it covers the entire footbed area and sits comfortably. If any adjustments are needed, trace around the inside of the shoe where the insole overlaps the footbed onto the sidewall. This will help you identify the areas to trim for a precise fit.

Step 6: Create the Second Insole

To create the second insole for the other foot, flip the newly cut insole upside down and trace around it on the custom sheet. Cut along the traced lines to complete the second insole.

Step 7: Trim for a Perfect Fit

Now that you have both insoles, place them back into the shoes and ensure they fit snugly. If any areas are too large or uncomfortable, trim them accordingly until you achieve the desired fit.

Step 8: Enjoy the Comfort Congratulations!
