The Podiatrist's Prescription for Pain Relief! New Powerstep Pinnacle offers unexceled comfort and relief from heel and arch pain and related ailments. Pinnacle, a unique podiatric support system, was designed by Dr. Les Appel from computer scans of thousands of feet. Powerstep Pinnacle provides the perfect blend of foot control, spring, and life-long cushioning for those who are seeking greater comfort than other products on the market. By eliminating excessive inward rolling motion of the foot, Powerstep Pinnacle virtually eliminates pain or strain in your heel and arch, and even your ankles, knees, and lower back. Powerstep Pinnacle is more comfortable because of its 4-step system. The prescription-like foot supports and heel cradles are sealed in two layers of foam - a new inner foam named Hypurcel that maintains its density and cushioning properties and a soft EVA outer foam. Pinnacle's permanent anti-bacterial and anti-fungal ETC. top fabric combats foot odor and helps keep feet drier. 4 Step System: 1) Strong, spring medical-grade foot supports calibrated for comfort 2) Unique Hypurcel - EVA casing for life-long cushioning from heel to toe 3) Heat and slip reducing anti-microbial ETC fabric for dryness 4) Heel cradle and platform to safeguard the heel during landing WARNING: These devices are not intended for people with severe foot deformities or suffering from circulatory diseases which result in infections or ulcerations on the bottom of the feet. In such circumstances, consult your podiatrist or medical professional before using. As with any product, consult a medical professional if pain persists. GUARANTEE: 30 day money back guarantee for any reason. Lifetime guarantee against breakage of plastic arch support (inside casing) when used under normal condistions.

Excellent product, but too thick for some shoes Dec 28, 2009
Having tried all the drugstore arch supports and other online varieties, the Powerstep and the Powerstep Pinnacle are excellent products and clearly the best I have encountered. Not only are they effective, but they are also comfortable.
I have a high arch and was concerned at first that the arch in the Powerstep was not high enough to provide the benefits I needed, because some other medium-height supports did not help me. This turned out not to be a problem. After wearing the Powerstep for just a couple of days my heel problems were gone and my feet and knees felt well. Apparently the shape of the support is just right to provide the benefit.
(Incidentally, my main problem has been heel spurs. An insightful doctor told me that they would stop hurting after using arch supports for a couple of months. He was right! Heel cushions are not the solution - arch supports are.)
I have also used the Powerstep basic model, which is the same orthotic but without the additional padding. The Pinnacle is slightly more comfortable because of its softness. However, because of its additional thickness it fits in only one of my pairs of shoes, while the basic model fits in nearly all of them. If in doubt, buy the basic Powersteps, not the Powerstep Pinnacles.
The orthics are made of high quality plastic, which have lasted me for several months so far. They are not as rigid and strong as the $300 variety, but I think that for the price they are reasonably sturdy.
For several years I've looked for supportive and comfortable arch supports, and now that I've found the Powersteps I plan to stick with them. I recommend them highly.

Great for Plantar Fasciitis Jun 19, 2008
I'm an ICU nurse, and I developed a plantar fasciitis. I had the choice between paying $200 to a podiatrist for customized inserts, or trying something off the shelf. I researched it online, found good reviews for the Pinnacles and tried them - spectacular! Took a couple days for my feet to get used to them, after that walking was so much better, the pain went away when I was wearing the insoles. Then, after 2-3 months, the plantar fasciitis resolved and hasn't returned. I love these!

Great for the feet. Dec 23, 2008
By S. Denbo
These insoles took the pain away from my feet due to Plantar Fascitis. They fit my shoes without having to modify them. Once these wear out I will definitely purchase them again.

Help for "hot heels" Jul 31, 2011
By Liz Krusenstjerna
I got these and a pair of Superfeet Black about a month ago for my SO after reading through hundreds of reviews here at amazon and also at zappos. He is 55, has very flat feet and suffers from what he calls "hot heels." In his work he attends numerous trade shows and after a day on concrete flooring he is in intense pain.
He was immediately attracted to the heel cushioning aspect of the Powerstep Pinnacles and went on to wear them for a couple of hours a day for several days. He said that they began alleviating his pain almost immediately. He felt the insoles repositioning his feet during the break in period and used that to guide him as to how long to wear them before taking a break. In any case, they've been show-tested and although he is not pain free he finds them very helpful and I am going to get him several more pairs here at amazon for distribution throughout his flock of footwear. If I were going to buy one pair only I probably would get them on ebay where several vendors offer them for about the same money with free shipping.
He typically wears Merrells, boots and outdoor sport type shoes, in a 10-10.5-11 size range. Swapping out the Merrell insoles with a pair of 10-10.5 size G Powerstep Pinnacles was simple and easy and did not require altering the insoles in any way.
Regarding the Superfeet Black, he did try them out. They are currently installed in a pair of his Merrell Chameleon mid height boots, which I notice he's not been wearing. When I asked him about the Superfeet he told me that because the Superfeet do not have the immediate cushioned feel of the Powersteps he doesn't feel inclined to persist with them. Now I just spent several minutes examining the two pairs of boots housing the new insoles and, to me, although the Superfeet are overtly sans cushion there really isn't a whole lot of what I would call cushioning in the Powersteps either. But apparently it makes all the difference for him.
I wanna say that I am profoundly grateful for all of the information freely available from the amazon community in these reviews. You folks surely are a generous bunch and I continue to be amazed by and very thankful for you.

Save your legs, hips and back Dec 03, 2010
I purchased two pairs of these orthotics for my husband and adult son who are both flat footed. My husband's podiatrist actually recommended these inserts to improve an issue he was having with his ankle joints sagging due to his overpronation. These immediately reduced his ankle pain and swelling and with regular use have corrected it. My son had a similar problem with his knee due to his flat feet and these completely cured the problem. Amazon offered these orthotics for more than $10 less than offered at our local store. I always check out Amazon first whenever I need ANYTHING and I am never disappointed!
