I have had my share of footpain over the years! Now my wife started having pain a couple of weeks ago and I told her to try getting some of those Dr. Scholes inserts for staters with a little "arch-support" for her problems.
She said she made an appointment to see the foot doctor...OK fine. Well the doctor gave her a script for the very same thing I told her to purchase over 2 weeks prior. It has helped her pain (gone) and she is also walking better.
I walk around in Dr. Scholes shoes and put an additional insert (sort-gel) in the shoes. It works like a magic wond for this old timer.
I try to walk at least 3 times a week up and down these Ozark mountains, (inserts in Redwing Boots) with a 45lb pack on my back and carry an old shotgun too. I usually do around 4 miles a trip.
