While discussed little in the article, sorbothane insoles have been used for several years by runners.  An interesting quality of the insoles is that they outlast the shoes they're put in.  They literally last for years even though subjected to the forces of body weight.  One runner claimed they lasted through 5 pairs of shoes.  My experience is similar.  I would suggest that they can help to cushion the forces of a running foot strike without significant decline in performance.  I.e., they're really cool............Holabird Sports is cheapest but Amazon and running stores typically sell them.
