I rarely write reviews for products on Amazon (I should, I know), but this one truly changed my life. I started running a couple of years ago and am biomechanically challenged. One foot is flat and moderately overpronates, the other has a bit of an arch and severely pronates. After both stress fractures and tendinitis (which collectively kept me away from running for nearly 5 months), my sports med doc recommended custom orthotics. This wasn't a surprise...I had to wear them as a kid and not being all that athletic, figured I'd need special help with my feet for running. Long story short, after $435, 2 total reconfigs, and 8(!) adjustments over six months, I still had significant foot pain (forefoot burning, arch cramping, other pronation-related ankle pains, etc.) and my pedorthist just couldn't figure out what was wrong. The worst part was I was trying to train for a half marathon through all of this.

After finishing the half, I started looking for another solution...Read more

I almost never review things I buy on amazon but since there was only one review I decided I'd give some input. I bought this instead of the superfeet because it got more recommendations on various forums and the arch is supposedly not as high. I would say I have a low to normal arch and this product felt great from the get go. I played some basketball the same day I received it (prompt shipping by the way) and I have to say my ankles didn't hurt, my feet didn't burn, they didn't go numb, my shin pain was relieved 90-95% , and my knees don't hurt as much. This product is GREAT. If you are considering custom orthotics to relieve your pain you must try this first. Only $30 and it has allowed me to play basketball nearly pain free. It is high quality and I will be buying powersteps for all my future orthotic needs! Thank you powerstep!P.S. this is for overpronators, look at your running shoes, if the inside toe area is more worn down than the other parts of the sole you...Read more
