5.0 out of 5 stars Buy these, they really work, 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spenco Ironman Performance Gel Insoles (Misc.)
My husband was diagnosed with Plantis in his feet around six months ago. Despite visiting a number of specialists, it was not getting any better and it was starting to affect my husband's quality of life as he could not do sport and found the first half hour walking in the morning excruitiating. I bought these after reading another buyer on line review and looking at the feedback which was ovewhelming positive. My husband loves them. The first day he used them he got immediate relief and said walking was much easier. Three weeks on he is would not be without them, and we have bought two additional pairs for his other shoes. For those reviewers that have posted negative feedback - i would suggest that some reviewers expectations are frankly unrealistic. My husband has very serious foot problems for 6 months and it takes time for the ligments in the sole of the foot to regenerate and repair. For those expecting an immediate cure - these insoles may not be the right product for you. However, if you are happy to combine these insoles with wearing soft foot splints at night then you will get immediate relief the next day, and after a week or two they will make a huge difference to the quality of your life, so much so that when you wake up in the morning you will not dread that first step when you get out of bed. For best results, i would suggest buying more than one pair, as otherwise you need to move them between shoes. They are quite chunky and they feel odd at first, but you get use to it. You also need to use some splints at night to stop your foot relaxing into its normal sleeping position which means you immediatetly tear the plantis in morning, when you put the foot down. If you use soft foot splints or the sossman sock - I would recommend that yoy dont bind it tightly at night. Its not necessary - you simply need to ensure that the foot does not relax into the sleeping position - but it does not need to be an instrument of torture to work or help the ligaments under the foot heal in the elongated position (which is the position you use when walking).
