Zelus Olympus Insoles Review

In the past year or two I have fully embraced the powers of insoles. My everyday shoes especially must have some extra support in them. Now that I am adding in a lot more cross training, I knew I needed to find the right insoles to not only support me but not add a ton of weight to my lighter shoes. I was really excited when the folks at Zelus reached out to me to test one of their insoles.

First off, let’s take a step back and talk about why you should consider wearing insoles in your shoes.

Insoles are the best way to take some extra impact off of your feet and shoes. Zelus insoles are created a little differently than most insoles. They have a patented SmartCell Cushioning Technology, which is the best anti-fatigue, impact-absorbing technology in your shoes that will keep your feet feeling amazing! I have really seen the positive effects of wearing insoles in my everyday shoes. My feet don’t feel as swollen or tired. It has been a little change that has made such a difference.

Those are the SmartCells right there!

Zelus is new in the insoles game. Have you heard of Fastech Labs before? They have been making insoles since 1985. When Fastech heard about SmartCells they vowed to make the best prefabbed insoles the world has seen. What they did was make some updates to the already successful insoles by working with top medical professionals and some of the best athletes on the planet. So, if Zelus insoles are good enough for all of them, why not me?

I received the Olympus insoles. These are full length, triple layer cushioned insoles that have some really great arch support. The first thing I noticed when I took them out of the packaging was the heel cup. It was very defined and I was intrigued. The heel cup was deep and super cushioned. I knew these would be very good for my lightweight shoes for sure.

Look at that heel cup!!

They slid right in my shoes, no need to cut them. I was also concerned that the SmartCells would not lay flat in the shoe since they are a lot different from most of the insoles I have ever used. Nope. No problem at all.

Perfect fit!

I first used the Olympus insoles in my lightweight running shoes. I wanted to get a true feel for them. I took them out for a three mile run and loved the way they fit. It was the little extra in my arch that I didn’t know I was missing. Since they are a little thicker than my normal insoles, I noticed a little bit more space was being taken up. This is totally normal and something I forgot about. I have used them a bunch more times in these same shoes.

Such a great arch.

I then put the Olympus insoles in my cross trainers. This is where I was really excited to test these out. My cross trainers are just so light and I knew I needed something in them. THESE INSOLES WERE THE ANSWER! The extra space taken up was not an issue at all. Everything fit perfectly. Since I am doing a lot more jumping and such with my cross training I can feel the difference in the responsiveness of the insoles. My legs don’t feel as tired when I’m done and my arches are so grateful for the support.

The Zelus Olympus insoles currently are living in my cross trainers and that is where they will stay. I love them paired with these shoes. I am really convinced you guys will too.
