I used to be an avid runner (about 30 miles a week). However for the last four years that has slowly declined, thanks to plantar fasciitis. I tried everything from custom insoles to special shoes; I could still run about twice a week but had to contend with aching knees and had to spend several hours icing and massaging my feet. Even after spending thousands on various "relief" I still found none.

When I came across Protalus on my Facebook feed and saw the reviews, I thought this was just another gimmick product. With great hesitation, I ordered a pair of the Protalus insoles S in December and have used them for a few weeks now.

With these insoles, I have been able to run a couple of miles five times a week and am working towards building back up to five miles a day, and the best part - no knee pain and I have not iced or massaged my feet since I started using these insoles.

Protalus may or may not work for everyone, but it definitely worked for me. If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, I would recommend at least giving it a try.

These are awesome for my feet. The insoles help me make it all day, with support & comfort. The best I've had.

I was apprehensive to try Protalus due to cost and because I was simply unsure what I was looking for in an insert. But the graphics in the ad showing how the Protalus fits and provides stability resonated and information from other reviewers helped me decide to make the investment. I chatted with a representative who provided guidance on sizing and suggested the M-100 for my son’s specific needs.
It took a few days of adjusting to wearing them, but they’ve been a game changer for my son.

I was a skeptic, but wow!  I was surprised by how comfortable they first felt as opposed to orthotics because of the "give" they allow. The high "heel cup" was a real game-changer for me, as I need stability in my heels, and with Protalus there was no more friction/rubbing in my sore area that the orthotics created.
