I’m always excited to find and work with companies that focus on our health and well-being, Footminders is one of these great companies. They have three different styles of Orthotics to choose from, depending on your needs and lifestyle. You have the “Casual” orthotic that works on men’s and women’s dress shoes (low-heel slip-ons) and you also have “catwalk” which work in high heel shoes and the pair I picked was “Comfort” which is perfect for sports shoes and work boots. Plus they also have one for the kiddies.
As a lot of my readers know I love to run and part of running I’ve found that my knees always hurt, so when I was first given this opportunity I couldn’t wait to test these out and see how they helped my knees. Two days after talking with this company I fell down the stairs and ruptured my Achilles tendon. (I won’t be running for a very long time). With that being said, I am still wearing my running shoe on my left foot when walking around and with all the pounding I was doing hopping on one foot my knee and ankle on my left foot were starting to hurt really badly. Once my “Comfort” orthotic came in I followed the instructions (cutting the orthotic to fit my shoe. Which was easy as there are guidelines you can follow to make the perfect cut.) and I placed the Footminders Orthotic in my left shoe. The orthotic is soft on the top and has a harder bottom for excellent support. Immediately I could tell a difference. I could tell it was helping me keep my foot flat on the ground, as appose to rolling to the inside of my foot. I also could feel it helping the impact each time I walked. After two days the pain in my knee and ankle were totally gone! After this experience I can’t wait to be back on both my feet and running, I am sure I won’t experience the pain I was before wearing the orthotics.
Would I recommend this product? YES! I would say anyone who has experienced foot/leg pain would greatly benefit from this product and anyone who has not had pain might still feel a great improvement on how they feel after using this. And with three different styles to choose from, for all different walks in life I think everyone could use this product.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
