    Good Feet Orthodics?

    Does anyone use them? Did they help and what did they cost? If they helped what issues were you having. I see them on TV all the time and I have alot of lower back pain. Willing to give them a shot if they have worked for others.

    I had some made specific for my feet. I have flat feet. They have helped me a ton. They were a couple hundred bucks. Worth every penny.

    Did you get them at the Good Feet store, or elsewhere? Aren't all Good Feet's premade and they choose the best one for you based on a foot scan? A true custom made one sounds better but maybe more expensive. $200 isn't bad, if they work.

    I went to a foot dr here in CR. Made the impressions in his office, then mailed right to my house in a couple weeks.

    I haven't used them myself, but both of my parents got some about a year ago and they said it was well worth the money. My dad has always had back problems and when he put on his for the first time, he said his back got near instantaneous relief...

    Re: Good Feet Orthodics?

    i've been to two reputable podiatrists in Ames due to a severe ankle break and both have told me that you get the same value of orthonics you get at Walmart as you do at the Good Feet store. My wife has been having issues with her knees due to flat feet and she did the Dr. Scholls test at Walmart. She bought the $50 pair the machine recommended and she has not had the pain in her knees over the last couple of months.

    Re: Good Feet Orthodics?

    I have high arches and had some custom made by a podiatrist like an earlier poster. Had them for years and they're well worth it. They were covered by insurance at the time and cost about $50.

    Can't speak to the premade ones, I think it would be highly dependent on the shape of your foot matching one of their forms to be effective.

    I bought them - couple hundred bucks. Sorta worked but wouldn't fit in all my shoes. Turned out throwing them away when I started getting foot pain after wearing them for months.

    I've turned to minimalist shoes... Have 2 pair of Vibram 5 fingers and a pair of Merrills as well.

    I'm a sucker for a good sales pitch and the good feet store had a good pitch. Not sure it delivered.

    Re: Good Feet Orthodics?

    When I worked on my feet for 10-12 hours a day with a cement floor, Dr. Scholl's erased all the pain for my feet and knees.

    Replaced them every 6 months or so. Never had a problem.

    Re: Good Feet Orthodics?

    I ordered a set of walk fit off a infomercial, I was very pleasantly surprised. I see now they sell them at target. Wear them for about 20 min a day till you get used to them, but they work quite well.
