My husband is on his feet for sometimes up to 12 hours a day. He works in a very busy automotive shop, so there is no sitting down. As a matter of fact, he spends most days running around like a chicken with its head cut off....In boots...On hard, concrete floors. Needless to say, after spending years doing this, he has had some pretty significant foot problems. Once it was so bad, the friction from his boots actually caused an open sore on his foot that took months to properly heal! Ouch!
Okay, so that was an extreme isolated incident. But it just proves that taking care of our feet is very important. Especially with the demands put on us everyday. If you don't have proper foot support in our shoes, it can cause a host of problems throughout the body. Joint pain, knee and leg pain, and even back problems can occur from improper foot support. If you stop and think about it, this makes perfect sense. Our feet are what take us through our day and support the weight of our entire bodies, so naturally, if this is hindered, a logical result would be pain and discomfort.
Have you all seen the new Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotic Inserts? You know the ones I mean...The super-duper fancy ones with the high-tech machine at their display that "maps" your feet to find the perfect fit? If you have been inside a WalMart in the past couple of months, I'm sure you have seen these. My husband had actually been wanting a set of these for months to ease the pain in his feet, legs and back. I wouldn't let him spend the $50.00 on them, though, since I wasn't sure if this was a costly gimmick or not.
So when I got the opportunity to review these inserts, my husband demanded I take advantage of it. Seriously, he was downright giddy about it! So we went to the In-Store Custom Fit Orthotic Kiosk to determine his ideal fit. If you haven't seen this cool display, this is what it looks like:
Pretty neat, huh? The system uses foot mapping technology which uses over 2,000 pressure sensors to create an analysis of the feet. It creates pressure points, arch type and foot type. Pretty crazy! (In a good way!) He followed the instructions on the screen, and after performing a few stupid human tricks, we had a perfect analysis of his foot, including his arch and various pressure points. These can be shown in colors red, blue, greenish, and yellow. It was pretty neat to see the anatomy of his foot! Once the analysis was over it recommended that we get the CF130.
When this arrived, my hubby was like a kid at Christmas. He even bounced up and down saying "Goodie, goodie!" He eagerly read the instructions and put the inserts into his work boots. Please not that these are NOT full inserts. They are designed to be put in the back of the shoe.
The first couple days of wearing the Dr.Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotic Inserts, Dan said they weren't very comfortable. He kept using them, though, and by the 3rd or 4th day, they were broken in properly and his tune changed dramatically. He has been wearing them about 2 and a half weeks now, and he absolutely loves them. All of his aches and pains have dissipated, and he says his feet don't get tired feeling nearly as quickly anymore. He has actually come home from 12 hour shifts and said his feet did not hurt. At all. This is something that has never happened before, and we have Dr. Scholl's to thank for it!
I wish I would have purchased these as soon as we noticed the Kiosk. I will admit, the hefty price tag deterred me. But now, seeing the wonderful results my husband has had, I think $50.00 is a downright bargain for the relief they offer! You could potentially save HUNDREDS of dollars at the podiatrist or chiropracter's office by giving these a try. Now isn't that worth the small investment?
Now for the FUN part....Dr. Scholl's would like to GIVE one lucky follower a pair of their revolutionary Custom Fit Orthotics in their ideal size!
