    The Good Feet

    I am in closing in on 50 years of age and have taken care of myself by eating decent and exercising.

    Cardio and Strength have been paramount, and I have been running 8 minute miles and 25 minute 5K’s - this caught up to me has taken a toll where as of recent I’m doing other forms of cardio.

    Long story short, I went in today to address my aching feet, knees and lower back.

    Arch support is what’s missing when we looked at the simple results.

    $400 later I have the 2nd tier arch supports that are supposed to correct versus mask, there is one in front and one behind the second tier that offers different levels of support. I wanted to try something as I have a huge trade show next week in Boston and will be on my feet 14/16 hours a day for 3 days.

    Their theory is kinda like a power problem, you can condition but the problem is still there, anyway, is there any one else that has went down this journey?

    If you find it, let me know. My arch in my left foot fall last year. It just kills me to walk on concrete.

    Honestly so far it’s made a difference but I’m supposed to see more as my feet adjust.

    If my wife (the MA at a podiatrist office) were listening in, she'd tell you to make sure that you break in your new inserts/or orthotics before you put in extended time on your feet.

    Re: The Good Feet

    My wife and I both use them.

    I was an addicted runner for many years. 7-10 miles a day and one 20 mile run each week. I loved it and no other cardio would do it for me. Well now at 65 and 6 knee surgeries later I miss it but would do it exactly the same again.

    I have high arches and always had custom made orthotics. The Good Feet Store was a great find. Do start with lower supports and work you way up to the proper size. They will improve the feeling in you entire body structure.

    I think it will function better once you add some pedals!

    They are indeed sold w/o pedals, so people can decide for themselves whether to go with locking/ double-locking/ non-locking, and the locking system they prefer.

    Re: The Good Feet

    More on topic... I had custom supports made for my cycling shoes. It seemed to help with some knee issues that've been part of my life for over 30 years. The advice about breaking your new supports in or at least getting a little acclimated to them before the trade show makes a lot of sense. Standing about @ trade shows—seems so easy until the end of the day and your whole body is sore—feet, knees, hips, back. I've wished for some gravity boots at the end of the day.

    Re: The Good Feet

    Yep, did the same thing for my cycling shoes as well a few years back and honestly forgot about that - it was done during the fitting process.

    I love road biking, but it is getting harder around here, just too many cars that seem to want to swerve at you or step on the gas blowing black clouds at you.

    Yes, trade shows or any position long on the feet can take a toll.

    So far so good with The Good Feet inserts, and don’t believe it’s me selling myself to me.
