My Name is Jack Sodoma. I am a professional caddie at Pinehurst Resort, the cradle of American golf. I have been walking the fairways of the famed #2 golf course, that has hosted 4 US Open Championships. On an average day I walk between 8 and 16 miles every day, usually carrying two golf bags.


Shortly after the 2014 US open I developed a debilitating case of plantar fasciitis I could usually get through 13-14 holes without having any pain. But would limp in from there, and my longest walk of the day was from the car to the house, if you have plantar fasciitis you know what I am talking about. I tried everything different shoes, physical therapy, rest etc. Nothing seemed to make it better. Recently I tried a pair of the Protalus insoles.

It was like a miracle. I felt some popping in my knees and hips, then my heel start to feel funny, then the pain went away all together. I have been wearing them ever since.


Thanks Protalus I thought I was going to have to stop caddying but I now feel like I did when I first started.

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.
