My 9 year old has flat feet and experienced foot pain with each sport season. In January, he was in so much pain playing basketball that he changed his stride and would need ice packs every night after practice/games. The sports medicine clinic took X-rays and examined him but really only recommended that we try orthotics (but did not really guide us as to which type-just try a few to see what might help), and if that didn’t work they said to have him brace his ankles for stabilization when he runs. So we sampled shock absorbers and others with no luck. 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. He isn’t having pain and I am beyond pleased.  I know I will be buying again, as this was the solution for us. He wears them in his athletic shoes, school shoes and play shoes.

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

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.

The first two weeks with them were a little disheartening. However, after working with them and using them as instructed, I started to get results. My swelling is minimum now and the pain is just about gone.
