- They can be helpful but may not solve all issues.
I started w/ custom orthotics through podiatrist to resolve issues from
running, when I started getting pain where achilles attaches at heel due
to bad foot alignment.
Those worked quite well and after about 10 years started getting knee
problems and an ortho specialist had me switch to superfeet. Those
again worked for awhile but then started getting neuroma in forefoot and
also in sesamoid (big joint behind big toe). Had to get cortisone shots
to reduce the issues in both areas.
Went back to podiatrist who switched me back to custom orthotics (newly
adjusted) and advised on proper type of shoe for me to wear and haven't
had issues since.
Bottom line is superfeet can help provide support / cushioning depending
on which version you buy, but if you have an underlying alignment issue
that superfeet can't compensate for, then you need the orthotics.
No harm in trying teh superfeet and if you start developing problems or
your existing problems don't go away, go see your podiatrist. There is
some amount of trial and error getting the right shoes and insoles
locked in, so need some patience.
