The Foot Pain Background:I have been a Barista, worked as a line short order cook, and served tables 3 years back. Constantly on the go, moving, and on my feet worked havoc--and I knew the pains of being on your feet! A good pair of shoes was where I turned to, but in-evidently after a couple of weeks or even months I still experienced slight discomfort and feet fatigue.
Now as a mom though not a Barista or serving tables--I am constantly on the go and again on my feet. Whether washing dishes, cooking, rocking, chasing, running, exercising, I am on my feet. Do I still experience foot pain? Yes, Just last week I was wearing my good pair of tennis shoes, and experienced pain in my feet and ankles. I had been walking Costco, running after my daughter, among other things.
So when I recently was given the opportunity to try out Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Insoles, I jumped at the chance to end foot pain. These Dr. Scholl's insoles are paired with the same good tennis shoes I wore when I experienced foot pain. This will be the second time in my life that I am using any kind of insoles.
Setting the Insole in the Shoe:
So, first thing I needed to do was take out whatever was inside my shoes. It was really easy with these shoes, as it was not glued in.
I am about a size 7.5-8 so I had to cut out the Dr. Scholl's insoles to fit into my shoe. These as packaged would NOT fit in my shoes, so I needed to cut them to size.
It was fairly easy adjusting the insole. I was a bit scared at having to cut the insole, but once I got one done, it was no problem doing the other.
On the bottom side of the insole there are guiding lines to help you know where to cut.
Then Simply place into shoe!
Using Dr. Scholl's:
The cushion I get when I walk is so good on my toes and heel and feet! Prior my feet ached and I did not get this delightfully squishy energy feeling as I walked. Now after trying it for a week and a half, I have to say that I have not experienced any pain in my legs or ankles.
When walking around Costco, I sometimes have to smile because it feels like there's a slight gel springy-ness in my steps. And maybe not exactly a foot massage, but a comfortable cushion that really does a great job at absorbing shock. I thoroughly enjoy using Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel and would definitely purchase a pair of insoles for my husband to try out and would purchase these for myself when these wear out.
