    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    These custom moldable, Dean Karnazes signature edition SOLE footbeds are designed specifically for long distance running.

    • Heat-moldable 3-layer design ensures personal fit and ample support to reduce stress and foot fatigue caused by pounding the pavement mile after mile
    • Tested on some of the most grueling long distance running races by world class endurance runner Dean Karnazes
    • Deep heel cup and customized arch support help maintain stability and proper knee-to-ankle alignment to reduce fatigue and pain
    • Also helps to support stabilizer muscles, which means more energy is dedicated to the muscles generating power
    • Custom fit helps eliminate pressure points by supporting the arch and distributing weight evenly to increase blood flow and reduce numbness and pain
    • Can be worn with or without heat-molding to achieve the proper amount of support and a custom shape
    • Wicking, perforated polyester top manages moisture and balances friction control with comfort
    • Silver fiber antimicrobial topsheet helps control odors
    • Middle layer features 1.6mm of SOFTEC open-cell urethane; it delivers shock absorption and durability for long-term cushioning comfort
    • EVA heat-moldable foam base supplies lightweight cushioning and a custom shape
    • Easy molding: warm footbeds in 200°F oven for about two minutes, then remove and place inside footwear
    • Opti-Therm Molding indicator makes custom fitting a snap—indicator turns black when insoles are ready to be removed from oven
    • To finish the process, step into the footwear and stand straight with feet shoulder width apart for two minutes
    • Easy care; hand wash and air dry to clean
    • Please note: sizing is based on US Men's sizes

    SOLE has joined forces with Dean Karnazes to encourage health and fitness for the youth of North America. $2.00 from the sale of each pair of Dean Karnazes Signature Edition footbeds is donated directly to Karno Kids.

    Rated4out of5byfromSo far, So goodI haven't been running on these very long, but they have added support to my high mileage running shoes. They do take up a lot of space though, may consider using 1/2 size larger next time.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat product for long runs & high archI have a Morton's neuroma that has forced me away from minimalist shoes and to look for support for my high arch. The theory (that works) is that the more support you have, the less your foot will twist and turn and cause the nerves to be pinched. All podiatrists recommend super feet green, I have tried many and this is the best for me. I didn't mold them, height is OK as it is. Possibly I would make them softer on heel and toe

    Rated5out of5byfromWorked for meI used these orthodics (as is without heating to mold) in my house slippers which have no arch support. Gave me the support I needed.

    Rated4out of5byfromIs Dean the new Godfather of Sole?Yes if I'm anything, I'm stylish, and these boys scream "Style!" It's just a pain to have to remove my shoes to show off my fashion sense. I don't like having to look at this incredibly fit running dude's picture every time I put on my boots, though. Knowing I'll never achieve his level of ab-ness makes me want to just stop and take a nap. When I do use them, however, they provide support and make my boots more comfortable. When Winter comes (and we all know Winter Is Coming) I expect the heat retaining properties will make my feet stay warmer. So, all kidding aside, I like these.

    Rated5out of5byfromSOLE Dean Karnazes Custom FootbedI got the insole for a pair of boots that were too big and lacked an arch support. I am extremely happy with this purchase. Would recommend highly.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery good footbedsI had been using a pair in my alpine ski boots and I recently bought a second pair for my new backcountry ski boots (Garmont Excursion). Before that, I was switching between the two pairs, but there was the risk of forgetting to do that, so when there was a sale I got another pair plus peace of mind.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat so farI picked running miles this spring and my planta fasciitis returned. My last episode was over 5years ago. I read up on treatment options and aggressively iced and stretched, but decided that an orthotic might help. Went to my local REI and got some great advice and info. So far the results have been remarkable. Stretching and ice were helpful, but I can definitely tell that the insoles are a key ingredient in managing the problem. Definitely the right call
