Shoe Care: How to Wash and Dry Scholl Shoes

How to Use Insoles with Scholl Shoes
Sneakers with removable insoles are the most suitable for inserting orthopedic insoles. Additionally, sneakers with a thick, cushioned sole can also be beneficial in providing arch support.

Once you have inserted the insole into the shoe, gently press on the top to make it conform to the shape of your foot.
