I never knew what plantar fasciitis was, my mom had it and said it was painful. I played in a soccer tournament in New Zealand (middle of April) but this foot pain started to hit me at the beginning of April. I could barely walk and caused me to limp around until the pain went away.

Hi, my name is Bill Rogers and I live in Richmond, Virginia. I'm 68 years old. I've been wearing these arch supports for about the last year and a half, and I just love them.

I’m a nurse, I work between 10 and 14 hours a day. Sometimes longer, sometimes less. But I’m on my feet all day usually. Over the years my feet have hurt and ached and were totally tired at the end of the day. I’ve tried the Dr. Scholl’s and the inserts of other things and the shoes and nothing helped. Until I came across the M100’s.

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.

Hi, my name is Tommy Benton, a 67 year old Federal Government retiree, pretty active spending a lot of time in the gym 4-6 days a week and just enjoying life. I heard about Protalus from a website and I was very much interested in it because I was having so much Plantar Fasciitis. It had come and gone for a few months and was apparently here to stay. I had tried some products from a local pharmacy but was just not getting any relief and had thought I’d give this a try. In addition to Plantar Fasciitis, I had some discomfort in my left knee.

I’m currently living in Oceanside, California. I’m a middle school teacher. I was in the navy for 26 years and did a lot of active stuff but always was extremely flat footed. Consequently, I pronate and I wear out shoes quickly. About a year and a half ago I found Protalus. It’s just amazing how well those inserts work for my feet. The idea of having to buy shoes every three months because I’m wearing out one side is no longer something I have to deal with because the inserts work so well.

My name is Sharon Mortensen. I’m retired, so I have a lot of free time. We live a little bit north of Tampa, Florida. Most of my kids are all grown.  I saw an advertisement on one of the websites I was looking at and I was very interested. I had gained a lot of weight with a thyroid condition, unfortunately, and caused my arches to fall. Once you don’t have that arch support you get a lot of pain in your foot when you’re walking. I had tried several generic arch supports and they were very helpful but they never quite did the job.

I’m Jerry Prendergast, I’m a restaurant consultant based in Los Angeles, California. I’m an avid cyclist, tennis player, and used to do in my younger days, triathlon. I still do long distance biking and some long distance swimming. I’m 63 years old, I’m six foot two, I’m not exactly a little guy, so the stress on my achilles  tendons are too much to run anything but a couple miles anymore. I just started playing the national 60 and older USTA tennis competition.

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.

My name is Stephen Lawrence. I was born in London and raised in New York. I now live in Atlanta, Georgia. Currently, I’m an aircraft inspector for Delta Airlines. I’m single, never married, no kids.  I had a foot injury, I didn’t know if it was Plantar Fasciitis, I had that at one point in my life. All I know is that when I went to sleep I had a Charlie horse, and when I woke up the next morning my heel was killing me.
