Awareness equals control
The PR1 uses real-time feedback to improve awareness and control over how you move.
The PR1 detects when you place too much pressure on your heel and provides an auditory cue in real-time. You'll hear a click as the pressure switch is compressed.
Build muscle memory
The PR1 creates a powerful feedback loop for building proper muscle memory.
Feedback with every incorrect step means you'll quickly learn exactly when and where your form needs work. With consistent use, you'll develop the autonomous muscle memory necessary for elite footwork.

I have been running for about 25 years, so my form has been a certain way for a long time. I know that I overstride slightly and have worked on it on and off over the years. I found the insoles to be very helpful to figure out what I needed to do. It was interesting how just the slightest adjustment made me stop "clicking." When I would shorten my stride and focus on my knee drive up, things got much better.
This is such a simple but awesome product. I am anxious to have my daughter try my insoles as she is a very heavy striker. I coach high school cross country and I plan to show and mention these to some of my girls who have various form issues as a great way to fix some basic mechanics.
Has really helped me to work on my foot strike. Working it into my runs and looking forward to seeing the results.
Overall great, but could use more cushioning
I now realize how much I truly was heel striking. I am investing the time an effort to help correct my poor mechanics and I’ve been very prone to injury in the past so this is so helpful.
I bought this pair for myself and my varsity teammates to train it. We rotated it around for a bit and it usually ended up sticking with someone that needed it the most. Loved the product. Worked as intended. Only thing is the “click” could be a bit louder (not that bad overall).
When I first started using the PR1 insole, I wasn't a runner. I simply walked in them. As someone who has been dealing with knee problems for many years now, these insoles showed me just how much I had been compensating to avoid knee pain. These insoles have been so amazing in helping me re-train my gait!
I've now been slowly getting into running and they've been even more helpful! As someone who used to dread running due to knee pain and shin splints, I find that I'm not dealing with these aches and pains anymore. These insoles have showed me how to maintain proper form and stride when running! I highly recommend the PR1 insole anyone, they've been a game changer for me!!
These insoles do exactly what they claim they will do. They provide an auditory signal to let you know if you are heel striking. They work great.
After years of knee and back pain from running with bad form, I turned to Pareto. I can honestly say that I look forward to my runs again! The feedback from the PR1 reinforced good strides and decreased the number of poor ones. I'm no longer in pain and I feel like I can run forever. Simple, yet innovative - highly recommend for all the runners in your life!
Have Used this product. Love the execution and how they are following through with making things better for you/us!
I’ve only had a few running sessions with these and can already tell how useful they are. Definitely kept me in check with my form. They looked thin at first but it has not been a problem with comfort at all.
I’ve been running in the Pareto insoles for about a year now. I noticed significant improvement in the mechanics of my run within just a few sessions. I am heal striking less and not over striding like before. It takes some time to build distance in them which is always a humbling experience (I’ve made that mistake before with minimalist footwear). I have also worn them a few times in my work shoes to see if they would improve my posture throughout a 12 hour workday. I was definitely more mindful of how I was walking. In general I feel the benefits from using the insoles last a while. I now rotate them in to my runs when I need a refresher, but my body remembers the training.
This insole made helped me figure out the correct way to run with less injury and faster by not heel striking.
Running intervals during my HIIT workouts used to be miserable because it would irritate my shin splints. These insoles have been majorly helpful in keeping me aware of my form and as a result I’ve had much less pain when I run/do sprints.
PR1s are the stuff of dreams. They've helped reduce my knee pain and made me a better runner. Highly recommend these to everyone.
The PR1 allows you to develop better movement patterns under any condition.
