I recently tried on my “10 Second Flat Foot Insole” for review. (www.tenseconds.com) I am very active and athletic, yet I have very flat feet and have never been able to walk or run for long distances. I have also had knee surgery and my feet cramp up when I go on long walks.
I tried the insoles in my everyday shoes first and could tell the difference immediately. It felt a little awkward at first because they made my feet tilt outward. But it did not take long however, to feel what the package described as “the solution” to my problem.
It felt like I was walking barefoot on good carpet with a thick pad.
I went to a local shoe store to have my feet analyzed. (www.allaboutfeettx.com) The first thing the lady told me is that I need wider shoes. Also, she recommended that I not tie them so tight. I have always wanted my shoes to be very snug, so I tie them fairly tight.
After loosening my shoes, I discovered that I could insert my “10 second flat foot insole” and feel the difference immediately.
Getting these insoles will definitely help, but only if your shoes fit properly. The pads fit comfortably in shoes that are less contoured to your foot, such as boots rather than form-fitting tennis shoes. So take them with you when you’re going to buy a new pair. ~ Keith Lee
