I decided to put the Massaging Gel Insoles into an old pair of sneakers that I was hoping to "revamp". The original insoles were getting flimsy from wearing the shoes for so long. I was very pleased with how the new insoles made me feel like I was wearing new shoes again! They fit perfectly into my shoe and gave me the support I needed.

The insoles are able to fit women's shoe sizes 6-10. That means that if you have a shoe that's smaller than size 10, you have to trim the insole down. I've been wary of products like that in the past, because I'm always afraid of messing up when I'm cutting and ruining the insole. The Dr. Scholl's insoles were super easy to trim, though! On the bottom of the insole is a guide telling you where to cut for each shoe size. Despite that, I still measured them against the insoles I was replacing. I was extremely pleased to find out that they lined up exactly with the size 8 guideline on the Dr. Scholl's insole!
I liked that I wasn't constantly thinking about the new insoles in my shoes while wearing them. Sometimes, I find that replacement insoles don't fit the shoe well, or are too thick, and therefore interfere with day to day activities when you're wearing those shoes. The Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Insoles were nothing like those annoying other products! They seemed to disappear, and while I could definitely tell that they were much more sturdy and supportive than the old insoles I'd replaced, that was the extent of my paying direct attention to them. I was very comfortable walking around with the Massaging Gel insoles in!
Overall, I would give this product a 5/5 rating! (I'm very surprised to be saying that, but I'm also very pleased!) The insoles gave me the support I need because of my knee problems, fit my shoes perfectly, and were very comfortable to wear.
