Superfeet Longterm Report (overdue, sorry!)
- Tester Specifics
Name: Rachel Herold
Size: 5'0", `118lbs
Location: Pacific Northwest, USA
Name: Superfeet Insoles
Model: Quick Fit System, Everyday Custom
As I mentioned in my previous reports, I have had trouble getting these
insoles to fit any of my footware.
I attempted to put them in my ski boots but they wouldn't fit. I attempted
to put them in my tennis shoes (running shoes) but they wouldn't fit.
I now have them in my motorcycle boots, which are a bit loose, and the
insoles take up the extra space there well. Because i am not walking in
thse boots a whole lot, the insoles seem comfortable providing a cradle, as
it were, for my feet.
There are actually two issues. The first was that the arch area of the
insole doesn't fit my foot very well as my arch is much further forward than
the arch on the insole.
The second issue is that I have a "duck" foot. I have a very very narrow
heel and a rather wide forefoot (hey, at least I have good balance).
In order for me to get a shoe that doesn't slop around uncomfortably on my
foot I buy shoes that have more of a "duck" shape, that is, a narrow heel
and a wide forefoot.
The insoles just don't seem to work in the shoes I wear. If I try a shoe
that the insoles fit in then my heel has too much slip for the shoe to not
cause blistering and other assorted painful issues.
I do apologize for not being able to give a much more detailed report but
the fact is, these insoles just don't fit my feet. I didn't realize that I
had such "odd" shaped feet but it does explain a lot of the trouble I've
always had finding shoes that fit.
- Hi Rachel
Thanks for getting your final report. I only picked on possible spelling
error. A quick check of the dictionaries at http://www.onelook.com/ would
suggest that "footwear" is a more correct spelling that "footware." Also
you report needs a heading ... Once finalised, please upload to
(if not already done so).
