WOW! What a Difference this has Made!
on April 9, 2012
This is the best shoe I have ever worn. I have been suffering with plantar faciitis for some time and can't be on my feet for any length of time. When I go shopping with my daughter or my sister, you will find me sitting on a bench waiting for them to finish their browsing, and then on to the next shop and on it goes. I hesitated buying these shoes because of some of the unfavorable reviews. Some complained that the footbed was too hard. That kind of worried me. I have put these shoes in my cart and then deleted them several times. QVC aired these shoes one day along with Dr. Andrew Weil and two other men who have helped to develop this shoe. When they showed the model with terribly pronated feet, one foot without the shoe, and the other with the shoe there was such an incredible difference! He also drew a dotted line up the bone of her shin to her knee. When she took the shoe off, the line shifted which put an extra strain on the knee that also affects the hips and into the back. When she put the shoe back on, it all came back into alinement. After seeing this demo, it was no wonder I was in so much pain! The comment about the hard footbed still concerned me. I looked back at the positive feedback, and one by a nurse who is on her feet all day! I finally decided to make the purchase. Added it back into my cart and bought them before I backed out again. I have had the shoes for two weeks and all I can say is: WOW!!!! What a difference it has made. Surprisingly, the hardness of the footbed has not bothered me at all. My husband took me to a Spring Training game the other day. We were parked way out and we both were concerned about the walk. But I did fine. In fact, we left early because it started raining lightly, but could see, that a storm was moving in. We walked at a very fast pace to beat it, and I was able to keep up with him. Even he was amazed! My feet weren't even hurting! So, my recommendation is that if you are "sitting on the fence" with these shoes, give it a try. I am so glad that I finally did! Not only did I get these shoes, but I just came back to get some of Dr. Weil's slippers to wear around the house. If I can't go barefooted-which is very bad, these will be the next best thing-with the bonus of giving me support! Thank You Dr. Weil! Now if he would just bring us a dressy pair of shoes! :)
