Insoles slipping

So I have had this issue happen with 2 different shoes now (Saucony Triumph 10 and Brooks Glycerin 11).

It generally starts on my long run (10+ miles) when my feet get sweaty and the insoles start to move a little. Then it gets progressively worse with each run. It's almost like my sweat has removed what ever is on the insole that keeps it locked in place. (Gross, huh. :smile: )

Anyone else have this problem? Any ideas how to correct it?

I read online about possibly using contact cement on the bottom of the insoles.

    Not had this problem. From my experience the insoles are a perfect fit in the shoe and there is no room for them to move anywhere.

    Do you have your shoes snuggly laced up or are they quite loose? I'm wondering if maybe you have them loose and your feet are moving around in the shoe which in turn provides space for the insole to move.

    My shoes are a little bit loose for comfort reasons but I have tried lacing my shoes up snug and tight and it doesn't seem to matter. With the Sauconys the insoles moved to the outside of the shoe. With the Brooks they seem to be scrunching up in my arch.

    Also, I run on the outsides of my feet (supinate) and this might be causing it too. I have never had these problems before but this is also the first time in my life I have averages 25-30 miles a week.

    I've never had that problem, but it sounds incredibly annoying! Hope you get a solution figured out soon.

    Sounds very strange indeed.......but no doubt others will have suffered the same. Do you have a quality running store near you that you can go into for advice? They've seen everything before I am sure!

    This may sound strange but have you been measured lately as you lost weight. My shoe size changed a half size as I lost and my feet move around and my problem is more with my socks sliding a little and bunching under my feet rather than the insoles but I have now gone from a 4E to a 2E with room
    I dont know of anything caustic in foot sweat to break up the sticky on the insoles mine are cut so they fit snug toe to heel and so it is hard for them to move

    I went to RunOn which is one of the two running shops (the other is Lukes Locker). They had no idea and hadn't seen it before. They warrantied the Saucony's even though I had already out over 100 miles on them and gave me the Brooks for the difference in cost (which was awesome).

    I think they measured my feet again last time I went in but I might go back and have them measure again. I didn't think about that.

    Otherwise I might hit up Luke Locker for advice too. Maybe I just have usually sweaty feet. :smile:
