5.0 out of 5 stars High arch supports works for me, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What you get is an insole with a high firm arch support and padding for the rest of the foot that is similar to the insoles in good running shoes or other over the counter inserts. The arch is so high that it will lift your foot within the shoe, which may be fine or can cause the heal to slip depending on the shoe. For a person with high arches, the right shoe AND their arch is a major factor in their pain then these are great. However high arches are not the only cause of foot pain and you could need to buy new shoes to use the inserts.

There are more expensive custom made orthotics, although their measurement methods are pretty ad hoc so there is little certainty that high cost alternatives are really any better for someone with a high arch. If you think high arches could be contributing to foot or heal pain these are worth trying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Euro plug issue, 28 Jan. 2011
Shipped with Euro 2 pin plug so needs an adapter rated for 2 amps, my razor adapter says 1 amp, unit is unused thus far. This was supplied by Amazon themselves and not another seller using their site.

1.0 out of 5 stars A terrible writer, 7 Jun. 2009
Breton is simply a very, very bad prose communicator, every single page has at least one paragraph that has to be read over and over again in order to make any sense of it. This is, in my opinion, not because what he is trying to say is so difficult, rather just a lack of disciplined editing, which creates a grinding read that just isn't worth the effort. Most people would be best served by first reading a Breton biography and then deciding what to do about the original texts.
