Also went shoe shopping for the first time in like four years. It was so fun to see how something looked as opposed to finding shoes that hurt the least. All because of Dr. Jill's miracle gels.
My right foot has had Morton's Neuroma for years. I purchased expensive orthotics for it and they sort of worked. For a while. In my tennies and golf shoes. Out of luck with work shoes. Recently had more pain than usual and went hunting for something to make it better. I purchased some leather insoles designed for women's shoes with a metatarsal pad. No go, they weren't high enough and had no support for the arch.
So then I tried some pads designed to place in the shoe under the metatarsal. These may work -- if you can figure out where they heck to place them. And that's the big issue for so many pads: putting them in the right spot on the insole. Forget about it if you're trying to put them in cowboy boots.
Dr. Jill's were my last hope and I am absolutely thrilled with the performance. These are amazing. They are easy to place on your foot and relatively easy to move a bit as needed. The gel feels very good to me, the support is there but not obtrusive. I wash them every couple days and plan to get at least one more pair so I don't have to wait for them to dry.
I am currently using the 1/8 ones but may try the 1/4 on the foot that hurts.
TIPS: At first I thought these were going to be too wide on my 8.5 women's shoe size narrow foot. Nope. Supports the whole metatarsal arch and that's a good thing.Read more ›
My podiatrist prescribed these metatarsal pads and they have completely changed my life. Although the neuroma is still stubbornly hanging around, I went from walking around with a limp to competing in a half Ironman and 20 mile runs. Overall, the pads are fantastic.
They do have one drawback, however. In the spring, I noticed that on runs over 45 minutes the heat and sweat inside my shoe would cause the pad to detach and "swim" around in there. This was less than ideal as the whole point of the pad is to stay put. I experimented with using strips of athletic tape to hold the pad in place. This solution worked fairly well except I tended to get blisters along the edges of the tape.
My (expensive) solution: use 2 overlapping fat strips of kinesiotape instead. This tape is fabric like on the outside and is pretty impermeable to water which is fantastic. I've only have one blister with this method and that was when I hadn't overlapped the pieces well and the two open edges began rubbing against one another, and my arch.
I mentioned that this is an expensive method because KT tape is not cheap and now that summer is fully upon us, I have to use the KT tape for runs longer than 15-20 minutes. On a treadmill, I can get away without the extra tape for runs shorter than an hour thank goodness.
Still, the pads have been amazing. The tape+pad combo got me through a half Ironman last month and will get me through an Ironman in 4 weeks. After that, I might look into surgery to really nip this neuroma in the bud once and for all, but in the meantime, the pads are excellent!
