I just received my T75 and H75 inserts. I bought them to relieve my hip pain and improve my experience in heels, respectively. Time will tell with the hip pain, but when I used my H75 in high heels I noticed an immediate difference. My ankles were stable and my weight shifted more to my heels, relieving my toes.

My husband has suffered for years and years with hip pain, leg pain, and foot pain. I said let’s try Protalus. I bought him a pair of insoles, he loves them and no longer has foot pain, leg pain, back pain or hip pain. They really have helped him tremendously.

I have been plagued by a herniated disk as well as a bone spur in my right foot. My nights have been spent in semi-sleep due to pain in my hips, foot and back. My podiatrist recommended that I get arch supports. I have tried several other brands, but the arch support was not enough. After searching the internet I came across the Protalus supports...

I’m a massage therapist in Tulsa, Oklahoma and work with Cirque du Soleil,  and the hockey and baseball minor league teams. I play tennis a lot. I belong to the USTA league here. I’ve been using Protalus for four and half years.

For 6 months, I’ve worn Protalus insoles in shoes I wear for work and for leisurely walking. I feel secure and stable in them. I like the heel cup and the fact that they reach forward and provide comfort to the ball of my foot. I’m a husband and grandfather, just about to turn 69. I’m a minister and Air force Chaplin. I was in the Air Force all together for nearly 26 years. Currently, I’m the interim minister of a church where I’ve been for nearly a year. And will probably continue to do that type of work.

These are the best thing I have ever ordered. I've had constant pain in my right front thigh, from hip to knee. The doctor says I have arthritis in my back that is causing it. I was recommended some exercises, stretches and a strong opiate. After 2 to 3 weeks of using the Portalus ET 75 my leg pain is completely gone.

My Protalus inserts are better than my $499 custom orthotics! I love that they stabilize my alignment and prevent my ankles from rolling in. And when plantar fasciitis flared in my left foot, they made walking much more comfortable. Thrilled that Protalus brought out the new model (half-length) for use in shoes with non-removable insoles. Now I can wear shoes I thought I'd never wear again.

Just returned from a backpacking trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in NM. Our crew hiked close to 10 miles each day for a week on rocky, muddy, uneven terrain in wet and dry conditions. I carried a 35lb. backpack plus 4L of water and 3 days worth of food at a time and I only weigh 100lb. My feet had been aching on our weekend practice hikes leading up to the trip and I was concerned how they would hold up for more consecutive days. I also tend to have an issue with alignment which affects my right hip.

It has been almost a year since I came across Protalus insoles via F.Book as I was recovering from having a badly broken lower tib/fib rt above the ankle joint that required major surgery to repair! I was not able to put any weight on the ankle for 60+ days, then starting physical therapy about 3.5 months after my surgery. I already knew that I had some pronation before I was injured because working in the outdoor sports biz with lots of shoe brands attending tech training for fitting running shoes. As I was going thru my physical therapy sessions, I was having pain and inflammation, especially when trying to apply weight to the repaired ankle. I started thinking......

I recently purchased a set of these insoles with the attitude that if they work cool if not they get added to the pile of failed tries. I own a landscaping company and I'm on my feet for hours, walk for miles and really put boots and insoles through the ringer. Anyways, I put the insoles in on a Monday and by Wednesday I could feel a serious improvement to my ankles, hips, and back. 100% improved. Look at your shoes, do you see the wear on the outside of the soles. Read Protalus recommendation they are on point. I'm at 2 weeks in work boots and I'm so satisfied and happy with this product.

Three years ago I decided to get my health in order and have lost 74 lb. I'd like to lose another 40. I love to run, and I love to go to the gym and workout. Like most people, I Google to see which shoes are best for overpronation which is a big thing for me and plantar issues. So, I saw this feed on my Facebook about one we ek ago. My $300 inserts were not doing the job. My hips, knees and definitely feet always hurt when I try to run. So today I wore the Protalus inserts and ran for 20 minutes straight. My feet......

I have to admit, I'm a skeptic about anything that promises rapid improvement. I laughed when I read the Protalus ad. Nonetheless, I ordered a pair. I'm not laughing anymore.

These insoles have greatly improved my back and hip. I notice the difference between wearing them and not wearing them. I love them!!

Look at your shoes. If you're seeing outside heel wear, try these insoles. I hope you see a difference. I hope you FEEL a difference!!!!
