I have been looking for new insoles for my shoes for a while. I was completely excited to get chosen to review Footminders. First thing I had to do to review these insoles was to take a good look at my feet and the shoes I wear most and choose a style. I never knew the styles between a casual and a comfort insole were so different.
So this is what I had to choose from. The Casual is for men’s & women’s low-heeled slip-on shoes, including moccasins (not what I thought). The Comfort is for ace-up shoes, athletic footwear, work boots and hiking boots and the Catwalk is for ladies’ fashion footwear with medium to high heels such as pumps, sandals and boots. I realized I need the Comfort insoles. I am glad I read what each was for or I would have ended up with the Casuals. When I first open my insoles the first thing I noticed was how supportive the insole was before I inserted it into the shoe. The insole has score marks on the underside to make sure you get the perfect fit. Just cut to your size and insert.
I admit, the new insoles took some getting used to. My foot is mostly flat with a very low arch. The insole made my arch a little higher and added more support where I needed it. The result was sore calves. But that just meant they were working. On day 3 of using the new insoles I noticed that my calves weren't as sore and that I could leave my shoes on longer without pain. I now love the way the insoles make my feet feel. I can now take my long walks without being so sore. There is still some foot pain but these insoles helped reduces it tremendously. That is what I was hoping for. You can see how sturdy these insoles are by just looking at them. Since they are so sturdy, I think this pair will last me a while to come. By the way, my favorite part of these insoles....the arch.
