I'm a personal trainer, Pilates instructor and health coach and have been in the fitness industry for 15 years. I train clients 35+ hours per week. And, I'm on my feet for much that time.

My knee and foot pain (plantar fasciitis) was so significant that I thought I'd have to reduce my workload. Sitting down as often as I could really didn't help.

And, as a competitive boxer, once I was done at work, I went to workout. I pushed through pain because my sport is important to me. However, I finally reached the breaking point where I thought I'd have to really reduce my own training if I wanted to keep working training others.

I have a large box of all sorts of braces, wraps, arch supports and other gear I tried to try and solve my problem. I tried acupuncture, chiropractic, and Rolfing (massage) with only limited success.

In a last-ditch effort to try and keep doing what I love to do professionally and personally, I tried the Protalus M100. I noticed a significant difference in the first hours that I wore them. Placebo effect? Nope! When I went without them, I also noticed a significant difference, but not the good kind.

Since my first pair of M100s, I've ordered a second pair of M100s, and also added the T100 and H75 to my collection. I never put on a pair of shoes without making sure I've put a Protalus insole in first.

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.
