Thank you for your order from all of us at Samurai Insoles, and congratulations on taking a big step towards happy feet!
Here are some valuable tips for using your new Samurai Insoles.
Please review them carefully!
TIP #1: We recommend a new(ish) pair of sneakers, boots, or clogs with a manufacturer's insole that can be removed and replaced.
TIP #2: Simply remove the manufacturer's insoles from your shoe, and replace them with your new pair of Samurai Insoles.
TIP #3: Samurai Insoles are designed to fit in your shoes without any trimming necessary. But hey, there's LOTS of different sizes and shapes of shoes out there!
If your insoles have an uncomfortable amount of excess material at the toes trim a small amount of material away from the front of the insole only.
TIP #4: You'll notice a rim where the padded case has been vacuum sealed to our unique orthotic shell in the heel area. Yes, this should be there!
As part our unique design, the material around the orthotic shell is simply to anchor the insole to your shoe. You should not feel the vacuum sealed rim during use. If you do, please let us know.
TIP #5 (LAST, BUT MOST IMPORTANT): We recommend becoming accustomed to your Samurai Insoles over the course of 7-14 days. Start off by wearing your Samurai insoles about an hour the first time, then replace them with your shoe manufacturer's original insoles. Repeat this process every day, adding an additional hour of use with each successive day, until you reach 8 consecutive hours of use. If your feet become fatigued while wearing Samurai Insoles, remove them at that point, and wear them the following day for the same time period, increasing the amount of time worn by an hour each successive day.
Thanks again, and enjoy your Samurai Insoles!
