The Superfeet Carbon are low-volume insoles, best used in hiking or running. They're perforated to improve breathability and the heel support is made of carbon fiber to make them lighter.

Pro Fits shallow shoes without compromising support and comfort
The heel caps and arch support are shallower than any other Superfeet insole, but the basic construction is the same. This allows the Carbon insoles to fit in a wider variety of shoes, and can even fit some dress shoes (if they have removable insoles). The Carbon insoles stabilize and support your feet by keeping your heel in position, and letting the heel caps absorb part of the shock as you're running. This reduces stress on your feet, ankles and knees, so you'll be more comfortable instantly (if you get the right size).
Pro Great for athletic activities
The Superfeet Carbons fit in a wide range of tight-fitting sports shoes, like cleats and running shoes. They're lightweight and breathable, and provide support, balance and comfort.
Superfeet insoles can not be machine-washed. You need to hand-wash them with soap and water, and allow them to air-dry. If you do so, they will last for up to 12 months or 500 miles, whichever comes first.
Pro Helps reduce odor
The perforations improve ventilation, and the closed-cell foam has antimicrobial treatment, which discourages bacterial growth and helps reduce odor. The closed-cell foam also means that there are no pores in which bacteria could grow.
Pro Lightweight and breathable
There are perforations under the midfoot and forefoot. This helps reduce weight and improve breathability of your insoles, which is especially important if you tend to sweat a lot.
Con May need some time to break them in
Superfeet recommend wearing their insoles a few hours at a time for the first week, so your feet get a chance to get used to them. However, many users have stated that they instantly felt a positive difference, and didn't need aay adjusting time. Still, you should be careful to pick the correct size and arch height for your feet, and allow some time before returning them.
