PCP told me that orthotics would likely help get some relief for pain which I thought was caused by heel spur. A specialist told me pain was caused by plantar fasciitis and with certain exercises and the orthotics I should be pretty much free of pain in 3-6 weeks. Just getting started, but very hopeful.
A colleague recommended Samurai insoles after he found relief from his foot pain. So I ordered a pair for my husband, who has flat feet and knee pain. His knee pain has improved greatly! It’s easy to switch the soles from shoe to shoe. Now I’m ordering a pair for my daughter who also suffers from flat feet.
Ninjas Orthotic Arch Support Shoe Inserts
I have plantar fasciitis that last time took 1 year to go away (and doing all the stuff you're supposed to do), now it's back again and 7 months still present. I recently got a pair of Shogun insoles (the green ones) and they felt nice to walk with in my shoes with other full footbed insoles over them. I have to change shoes and insoles several times a day as my foot gets tired of anything after awhile. That said, these are some of the better supports and I'm glad I have them in my arsenal. Thanks!
Being able to use the insoles with each pair of shoes I wear is a very ingenious idea. It makes sense to utilize the insoles that bring the most comfort and ability to walk without constant heal pain or discomfort.
So far I am liking them. I still had the pain on the heel of my foot, But it's not as Much pain as it used to be. I feel it is getting better. I do not have the pain up at my pinky toe. And then the middle of my foot any more either. So I feel they are benefiting me.
These work better for me than my custom made orthotics. They are most effective when used with tied shoe laces. With slip ons I have to push them towards the heel and use one finger to hold as I push my foot in.
Day one with the orthosis. Best my heel/arch has felt in a couple of months. I am a physical therapist and was given the Samurai advice by my brother, an orthopedic surgeon to try. Pleasantly surprised.....stay tuned
I've used them for 2 days and my knee and lower back pain has diminished greatly
That was what I needed. Thanks
I ordered a set about 45 days ago, placed them in the shoes I was using, noticed quite shortly in about 6 -8 days the heal pain subsided. Ordered two more pares, so that I didn't have to change every time I used a different shoe, and the new ones continue to provide the support and relief from heal pain. I am not taking any over the counter nor Rx medications to relief pain. These Ninjas appear to work in reducing plantar franchises. Worth the investment. Have also checked out the insoles available in a local pharmacy, these seem to be OK, but the cost differential is not enough to stir me away from the Ninjas.
I have Plantar Faciatis in my left foot and these insoles have been the best I’ve tried so far.
I just started a new job where i am on my feet all day, so I thought i'd give these Samurai insoles a try...I was pleasantly surprised! they easily fit under my boot insole, and my feet feel fine after a long day. i highly recommend the Samurai Insoles!
When my husband & I wear these, we no longer hurt!! They work!
