My feet were killing me until I found the solution

When I was younger, I never thought much about the aches and pains that would come with age. I was a free spirit…in the sixties I wore bell bottom jeans, in the seventies I adored my platform boots and in the eighties I worked ten hour days in heels. Today, I’ve slowed down a bit but I’ve held onto that spirit, and even a pair of heels or two.


A few years ago, my doctor told me I might be at risk for diabetes and recommended an exercise regimen. Each morning and every evening, I began walking, but after only a few laps around the shopping mall, my feet would start to throb with pain. I began to realize that something wasn’t right and I suspected that all those years of abuse I had put my feet through had taken their toll. One morning after my walk, I stopped into Foot Solutions hoping that maybe a new pair of sneakers would help. 

You might say I got the royal treatment from Edward and his team. I had only come expecting shoes, what I got was an experience that I won’t forget. Edward offered a free analysis and scan of my feet. As a Certified Pedorthist, Edward was well trained on how to spot foot conditions and could tell right away that my balance was off, in fact, he suspected that one of my legs might even be slightly longer than the other. He also believed that the trendy generic athletic shoes I had been wearing were giving my feet no support at all.

I decided on a nice, flexible pair of running shoes that fit better than anything I have tried before and invested in a pair of custom body aligning inserts designed to help put my body in perfect alignment. I could feel the difference right away and after only a few days, I noticed my walks grew longer and more effortless, but most importantly my pain was going away.

I’ve been a Foot Solutions customer now for nearly a decade and I simply won’t shop for shoes anywhere else. They offer really good looking styles. If you have foot pain, visit FootSolutions.com and find your nearest store or just call them at 1-888-FIT-FOOT.
