I agree I have the same ones also. Been wearing them about 7 years

Superfeet are great! It might take a couple weeks to see any difference. Wear them and just when you are ready to pitch them you will realize you a trucking along and your feet feel great!

I have extremely high arches and plantar fasciitis in my right foot (last year my left foot). With over 25 different pairs of orthotics, one pair that was custom made for me with a cast, I was continuing to be in pain and limping around the house. I decided to try my Walk Fit plastic orthotics and I can't believe in just ONE DAY the difference I feel. No more pain, fantastic support, they seem to "exercise" my painful tendon and I am currently pain free. I would recommend these orthotics over anything else I have tried. Just remember, though, those of you who have never tried them before, it may take a bit of getting used to.

I had a Dr try to sell me $800 inserts for Plantar Fasiitis. Since I was waitressing 40 hrs a week and also walking a dog, I was really in constant pain but couldn't afford the inserts so I started wearing shoes with a heal to put the pressure on the ball of my foot and recovered.
The foot doctor came in for dinner one night while I was flying around working and accused me of getting inserts from a different Dr, lol, I was just shocked but the shoes cured me.

You might try acupuncture. My daughter had plantar fascitis most of last year and it disappeared after two sessions. Hope this helps.
