I have 2k10 zoom breathe shoes I love and just need new insoles. But can't seem to find factory insoles which I figured would be easy to find...
Is this so you have to buy new shoes? Or is there some website I haven't found yet?

You can buy generic replacements.

I'm size 13 unfortunately.

Bartleby, factory insoles are the most comfortable and fit to the contour of the shoe. Can't use a generic.

I think you answered your own question about why Nike doesn't sell replacement insoles. Why sell them if you will lose sales by doing that?

My experience with aftermarket insoles is that oftentimes they fit just as well as the originals. I have 2 pairs of Nike shoes, a cross trainer, and a tennis shoe I wear casually. On both my Nikes, my Sof Sol insoles fit as well as the originals. In fact, if you lay them on top of each other, the shapes are nearly identical.

Honestly, the top athletic shoe companies all use cheap minimal insoles, and they even buy them from insole manufacturers. Nike is a brand partner of OrthoLite, and Adidas insoles even have the OrthoLite tag on them. So you can buy Ortholite insoles if you want. The pros take the original insoles out and use their own for customization, so that's why it's unimportant for Nike and Adidas to put good insoles in their tennis shoes.

Yes, you're exactly right.

Any chance I could get a pair of size 11 insoles? My email is dougmint at yahoo dot com. I am looking for a pair with good arch support. Nike used to include an insole with an additional add-in arch support. I wish those were still available. Thanks, Doug

Haven't seen those add-on for awhile...

By the time your insoles wear out, the cushioning in the shoes are probably already gone even if the outsole still looks good. So it's time to replace the shoes anyway with a new pair unless you want to damage your knees or feet.
