New Balance Instructions and Fit Guide

The majority of New Balance shoes will fit Move Game Day and Game Day Pro insoles true to size. For example, if your New Balance sneakers are a Men’s Siize 8.5, use the 8-8.5 insole. If you are a Women’s Size 9, use the W 9-9.5 or M 8-8.5 insole. Confirm your size by reviewing our size chart.

Most New Balance shoes don’t use adhesive to keep the included insole attached to the shoe’s midsole. You can use your hands to easily pull the insole free of the shoe without much effort. Some retro New Balance models like the New Balance 480 will have some loose strings taped or glued down to the strobel board underneath the insole. This is a manufacturing technique that’s not used in modern shoes, only retros. The strings are secured to the sidewall of the shoe so even if they move while you make the insole swap, it won’t affect performance.

Regardless of the type of New Balance shoe you have, loosening the laces as much as possible will give you greater access to the inside of the shoe and make it easier to remove the standard insoles and switch to Move insoles. Once you’ve removed the stock insoles, carefully slide the Move insoles into your pair of New Balance and position as needed. You’ll be able to swap out the old insoles for new Move insoles in less than 2 minutes. This makes it easy to use the same pair of Move insoles for multiple pairs of shoes. 

Tip: If your New Balance shoes happen to use adhesive and for some reason the adhesive will not detach easily, use a hair dryer set to low heat to warm and loosen the adhesive.

The addition of a Move insole will slightly change the fit of your New Balance sneakers. Your foot will sit slightly higher within the shoe, and depending on the upper materials, feel marginally tighter on foot. All insoles change the feel of a shoe on foot. Move insoles are designed to minimize those differences and help your New Balance shoes fit better and more comfortably over the long term.   

You will immediately feel the difference. Move insoles feature extra cushion, arch support and a frictionless top layer that molds to your foot. Move insoles protect your feet and assist in maintaining ideal biomechanics. You’ll feel the difference both while wearing Move insoles and when you take your shoes off after a long day.

Tip: Take your Move insoles with you when you try on new shoes. This ensures you get the proper fit no matter which shoe brand or model you buy.
