We were very fortunate recently to get to review this product above called Footminders Orthotic Insoles. I got them for Mike in size Large to hopefully help him when he is wearing his work boots during the day. I wasn't sure if this would help him with his back problem or not. I knew that I did not need them because I hardly go anywhere anymore so I wanted to make sure I had a good tester, which left Mike. We have tried many different kinds of insoles for him over the years. Some will work for awhile but then he is right back where he started.
These are the ones we got for him in a size that would be most comfortable for him. These are called the Footminders Comfort Insoles because they are made for people who do alot of walking. And Mike sure does that! Here is what Footminders say about the Comfort Insoles:
Footminders Comfort is a full-length podiatrist-designed orthotic insole for wider and loose-fitting men's and women's footwear. This biomechanical arch support helps realign body posture, in many cases relieving foot pain, heel pain and lower back pain. It is ideal for any sports activity, including running, golf, tennis, etc.
Footminders Comfort features Dual Layer Orthotic Technology, a supportive medium-density EVA, combined with a soft 2mm Durapontex layer that makes this a very comfortable orthotic insole, providing support AND cushioning.
Footminders Comfort is a biomechanical sports orthotic insole engineered to perfection for ultimate walking comfort with the following features:
**Suitable for work boots, wide-fitting lace-up shoes, runners, sports, tennis and golf shoes
**Dual Layer footbed technology: firm EVA + 2mm of soft, cushioning Durapontex
**Large shock-absorbing Heel Pad
**Extra-deep heel cup for superior ankle stability
**High biomechanically-shaped arch support to control over-pronation
**Metatarsal support to help relieve and prevent Ball of Foot pain
**Soft, velour-like anti-bacterial top fabric to keep feet dry and cool
All I know is so far, Mike is having a some relief from lower back pain and his feet are not hurting when he comes home. The added benefit for him is that his feet are not so wet from all the sweating he does with the other insoles he tried which led to constant peeling of his skin on the toes. See the above picture where those holes are? I think that is where it helped with the toe issue. Notice below how thin they are? I think that is another key element. I hope as time goes on that he will continue to do good with these particular insoles. Only time will tell.
So, that was an extra that we were not even thinking about! He works outside so the summer heat has been really brutual here in Georgia. He is getting to where he can't take the heat so he took a test to be able to bid for a higher up job that is inside to get out of the heat. I just hope one becomes available before too long. Oh, and the best part? They have a 30 Day Guarantee if they don't work, you can return them! I thought this video might help some of you to understand how all this ties in together and why it works.
