First and foremost, I am absolutely thrilled, and I mean thrilled, with your product. My problem foot has not felt this good in 25 years, and I am just astonished that your insoles could accomplish so easily what a zillion visits to 'experts' and a zillion dollars for custom orthotics could not. I admit to being a little skeptical when my wife first came across your product online (I am not usually persuaded by TV infomercial type of stuff) but the many online comments (mostly very positive) about the insoles and your own very prompt and comprehensive responses to my inquiries sold me initially, and the rest is history. My only fears going forward are either you change the design or you choose another line of work and your business closes!! Hopefully neither will happen and you enjoy continued success and prosperity.Ken Honig
... for the past week, I have been walking with so much more ease, thanks to you. Again, thank you so much...Sophie Marchessault
Barefoot Science insoles are the best I have ever come across including a $500 pair I have from a foot doctor. I think I originally saw them on an infomercial either on line or on TV. I have them in every pair of shoes and sneakers I own. They have improved my overall arch health dramatically since I began using them. They also last a long time as you can see from the time I placed my last order for 5 in 2010. Hopefully the company continues offering this great product in the future. Thanks again for your help.William Westberg, Specialty Division Account Executive, Division of LFUSA
I have been working in the Security industry for over 20 years. I'm on my feet a lot and walking miles upon miles for patrols. Years ago I went to my doctor for pain I was having in the bottoms of my feet. He told me my arches were falling and that I needed to get insoles. My wife picked me up a set of Barefoot Science insoles from the infomercial. Now this was 15-20 years ago and I'm happy to say they are still going strong. I have put a ton of miles on them and have not had any pain since I started using them. I think it may finally be time for a new set. I do have to commend you for a quality, strong and reliable product. I thought the price at the time was a little steep but if I knew they would last as long as they have and that they would fix the problem in my feet I would not have hesitated to get them.
This is a quality product that I recommend to friends and family all the time. Thank you for helping me with my medical problem and making my job that much easier.James Hope
I have level 4 in now and plantar fasciitis is a distant memory. I have also stopped wearing my orthotics. Thanks for convincing me.Ryan The Urban Athlete
Just wanted to let you know that your insert is the best thing I've tried for my plantar fasciitis. For several years I hobbled around in awful pain and could barely walk at times. Had several cortisone injections over the time period. Finally found your product. I hated having to pay nearly $75 but it's the best money I've spent in a long time. I move them from one pair of shoes to another... I even put them in my slippers! As long as I use them, I don't have pain...but on a couple of occasions I thought I'd see how it went without them and after a few hours I could tell I'd made a mistake. I've been wearing them for about 7 or 8 years and I swear by them. I've told everyone that has feet problems or back problems... Your product is wonderful! Thank you... please don't ever go out of business! ... the other inserts just aren't the same.Nancy Wyatt
I just want to let you know how well these have worked for me. I have had shin splints and pain in my ankles and knees so bad I could hardly walk. I had orthotics that didn't help. I have seen huge improvements after just a couple of months. I was wondering if you make them for children as I have a daughter who needs a pair.Derek Newbatt
We talked on phone a week ago & I ordered the 3/4 inserts from you. I received them yesterday - thanks so much for mailing them out on Monday! The exciting news is I was able to run damn near pain-free for 1st time in 13 weeks! Cautious cautious optimism!! The insoles free up my feet & the pressure points seem to be in an area of arch that somehow removes pressure on fascia - my feet have so much more freedom & I ran uninhibited because it didn't hurt! So, I'm obviously taking things easy here but just wanted you to know, so far, very very good! Thank you! Have a great day.Tom Louden
I want to tell you how Barefoot science insoles helped me. I started walking last summer and was enjoying it very much. Then I got plantar fasciitis. Ouch! I could hardly walk around in the grocery store or mall it hurt so badly. I tried the gel insoles for a while but they didn't help. I was telling a friend how bad my foot hurt and she told me about Barefoot Science. She said they helped her. I went immediately to Shopper's Drug store (only place here I could find them) and put them in my sneakers. I could see a difference on the second day. Wonderful. The pain eased up. What a relief. I had been getting physio also. But it was the insoles that helped me.
I have had them in now for a few months. I have told everyone about these even the pharmacist at the drug store and told him that if ever he has anyone asking for foot help he should recommend BAREFOOT SCIENCE to them. Thank you for helping me walk without pain.Joyce Barkhouse
I've been wearing Barefoot Science consistently and have been at the final #5 insert for 1 week. I wore them in all shoes throughout each day, 7 days a week, except in ski boots. Peter assessed my feet and found that my pronation has decreased and that I have actually formed an arch. As I stated before, my feet had completely collapsed and I was leaving a complete duck looking foot print on pool decks (quack quack). I now leave a more normal foot print, though a bit wider, but no longer a duck print.
I did not use any heel stabilization and really found that I was not feeling unstable at all in spite of using these things in a pair of Crocs at work. I actually found that my foot felt very stable with the devices.
On snow, I found that, without changing my foot beds (I have custom built ski boots... I still race in the masters complete with customized shells, footbeds and foam injected liners) my feet and knees felt remarkably better. Previously, in spite of the custom boots, I would almost develop a plantar faciitis especially in high load situations. Knees would bother me a bit in the bumps and training slalom gates. That seems to have gone away now.
Personally, I find them worth recommending to my patients and have started to do just that.Anonymous
