Ron...no flippin' clue...I wore them for lengthy periods of time before I ran in them.<br><br>
How could they not fit? I got my feet plaster casted. Shizzle and a Dizzle!<br><br>
I'm calling "Shenanigans" on the feet people.<br><br>
I've got flattish feet...my right even worse than my left. I blame it on bad genetics and being heavy for so long.<br><br>
Hey...only 12 MINUTES until your birthday lasagna is ready!

It sounds like you need more specialized insoles but have you ever tried Soles moldable insoles? I swear by 'em; have them in my running and cycling shoes. They're like $40 or so but they're like a cheap version of custom orthotics. You stick them in the oven for a few minutes, put them in your shoes, walk around a bit, and they mold to your feet but still keep a good rigidness.<br><br><a href="http://www2.yoursole.com/products/footbeds/" target="_blank">http://www2.yoursole.com/products/footbeds/</a>

Jahona...at this point it's worth a try.<br><br>
I tried superfeet, but had to toss them b/c they dug into my arches too.<br><br>
Moldable sounds pain-free!<br><br>
WTF...my orthodics were prescription!

They'll give you blisters until your feet get some tougher skin where they rub, it's just the way orthodics go. You can try some skin lube or different socks, but in a couple weeks it will be all a memory.

Yuck, sorry to hear that <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Worries me a little as I'm supposed to get my new orthotics this week, which were also a whopping $300. Did you call the feet people and complain?

I kind of wonder if making a rigid heel cup with a set degree of posting in the heel really has as much of a benefit as I always assumed. I'm sort of questioning if the pronation that happens during the gait cycle just gets transferred to a point later in the weight transfer to the toes. I've always worn orthodics, but sometimes I wonder if they really matter much.
