Having served in the United States Army as an Infantrymen and being deployed two times to Iraq the consequences of patrolling day and night and carrying loads of gear caused massive damage over time, and my body was a mess. Before the Army I was a marathon runner, compiling 100 marathons since the age of 13-teen-years old. After getting wounded in combat…

I started using the inserts in late August, and already have noticed a difference. I had been using custom-made inserts but realized they were not completely working the way they should. These inserts fit so much more shoes than the others did, to which I am grateful. It has taken me a little while...

Protalus insoles helped me through my professional soccer career. Knee and heal pain instantly gone after wearing these for one week. I don't put my feet in shoes that do not have these insoles in them. Hands down the best insoles you can get!

The SuperFeet Green in my Tactical Low-Cut Boots were giving me a hot spots  on the outside of foot at mid-sole. The factory insole was 3/16", so I order T100. Great improvement: no more hot spots...

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 've had plantar fasciitis for more than a year now but it has gotten worse after I did the Arizona Marathon in  February of this year. I got in the draw for the Chicago Marathon 2017 that just finished a few weeks ago. I thought I wouldn't be able to run the marathon because of the severe pain I was experiencing on both feet. I tried other inserts but none of them worked. On June of this year, my husband bought me the Protalus S, just to give it a try...

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.

I received my first pair yesterday and I've only had my inserts in my shoes for 5 hours, but I can already feel the pain is so much less! I'm so excited and hopeful that these will be the answer I've looked for. I'm looking forward to seeing how wearing them long-term will go for my my chronic P.F.! -Thankful & Hopeful

I ordered these a few weeks ago, but they were on back order. Monday 8/15/16 I received them and immediately took my shoes off at work and put them in. I have plantar very to the point that it is affecting my bone structure. My orthopedic said that plantar usually doesn't show up on an MRI, but mine is so bad it did. At one point he put me in a boot which through off my gait and made my knee on the other leg hurt. Anyway, Monday was an especially painful day for some reason, so I was glad to get them. The heal pain was very bad that day. I put them in around noon hoping for relief. By the end of the day, I could tell I was going to like them. Now it's been...

So glad I decided to give these a try! I have been in so much pain with plantar this past year. I have had shots, night splints, compression socks, stretching, ice, orthotics everything under the sun. Nothing helped. I put these in, and after the break-in period, I am down to wearing my night splint only when I overdo it. Being able to stand up and walk in the morning without pain is the best feeling ever. So happy I can run and afterward there is little to no pain. Thank you so much for your product!
