After many years of suffering and trying different boots and insoles. I finally broke down and went to the podiatrist. After he worked some magic with gluing felt in various places on the superfeet insoles and some anti-inflammatories, my feet felt great. It took all of 3 days for me feet to thank me. The felt was for support and to relieve some pressure points. It is long gone, as well as the medication. That was 2 years ago and I put nothing in my boots except for superfeet green!
