Remarkably comfortable insoles
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 November 2019
I've suffered with sore, swollen feet for 25 years, especially in the hot summer months. This means that I dread walking any distance as it could trigger my feet to erupt with painful blisters that would have me literally limping down the street. A retiring Chiropodist once told me that she had never seen such blistered feet in her entire career and prescribed me expensive rubber orthotic shoe inserts, but this only made my feet worse. I would put fabric plasters on the most painful parts of my feet, and walk on the less painful parts, but then I'd get cramps in my calf muscles from walking so awkwardly. I've tried all kinds of gel and foam insoles which only helped a little, as did wearing open sandals. I was desperate enough to try regularly dousing my feet with surgical spirit to toughen the skin on my feet, but the blisters kept coming. This has seriously impacted the quality of my life.
The inner soles in a pair of my trainers had worn out, so I replaced them with Riemot memory foam insoles as they were on offer at Amazon. When they arrived, I had to loosen my laces a little as the new insoles are slightly thicker than the previous ones. As soon as I put my trainers on I noticed how comfortable they were, especially when I stood up and walked around. The insoles seemed to spread the pressure evenly and there was almost no movement of my feet in the trainers as I walked.
I put another pair of these insoles in my work shoes, and went on a long walk one lunchtime, and experienced no pain, swelling or discomfort. Walking on stony surfaces no longer hurts my feet either. At last I feel confident to walk anywhere without the fear of giving myself sore feet - Brilliant!
I bought a pair for my wife and she was very impressed with them too.
This has been literally life-changing for me, and I only wish this product had been available a long time ago. I will definitely be buying more for many years to come. Thank you Riemot!
