I have Plantar Fasciitis in one foot, and a double bone spur in another. My feet were hurting so bad I could barely walk. I consulted two different doctors. One doctor got me a leg brace to wear at night for the plantar. It kept slipping off my foot in my sleep. He also wanted to get me on pain pills for it, which I said was a no go. The other doctor was a Podiatrist. She gave me cortizone shots for the double bone spur, which really didn't do any good. She also had me buy inserts from her for $45 which lasted about a week before they came apart. Then I happened to see an ad for these shoes on YouTube, and thought "What the Heck?" These shoes are a MIRACLE! My feet instantly stopped hurting! These are better than anything the Doctors ever prescribed for me! They are designed by 12 different orthopedic doctors and are better than any other shoe you can buy. Yes, they may cost more than what some of you normally pay for a shoe, (I know they did me) but THEY ARE WORTH IT! They will last you about a year, and then you'll have to buy another pair, but it's worth it to be able to walk pain free.
