Great Arch Supports without the Expensive, Custom-Made Pricing. Mar 05, 2010
By K. Tran
"If you have to invest in something for your feet, you should invest in a good pair of comfortable shoes and a right set of arch supports if you have high-arch feet," said my podiatrist. Thus, I totally agreed with him! For a long time, I never understand why I always had bad back, foot, and heel pains... I always bought the good looking or bargain price shoes that didn't fit my feet, and they were hurting my whole body! I always thought that those things were common problems and that I should just "suck it up" and be a man about it. However, I was wrong and ignorant until I met a good person who happens to be an podiatrist.
He helps me choose a right set of shoes that were my right size - and I do have wide feet. Oh gosh, those new set of shoes were heaven sent. Nevertheless, he also recommends that I get the proper arch-support insoles! He tells me that he can charges rich or good insurance patients who want to do custom-made insoles, but always recommend Spenco to his friends and those who cannot afford the pricey package. At first I laughed at the idea, but after wearing the Spenco arch-support insoles, I can stand and walk around all day without feeling tired or aching on the ball / bottom of my feet.
I've tried Dr. Scholl's and other brands but they only give some basic relief. Spenco, on the other hand, give enough pressure relief with their tough design. Trust me, you don't have to buy expensive or good looking shoes and custom-made insoles to have healthy feet, just the proper support for your foot type - and mine is Spenco. I buy two sets for each of my daily-usage shoes, and I will not go anywhere without them. Forget Dr. Scholl's or anything else, Spenco supports the right spot(s) with the right pressure relief(s), thus making it worth your money in the long run (especially if you know how to shop around and get a good price on Amazon). Lastly, just remember that this model is for bigger, properly-sized, and/or comfortable shoes; if you have tighter or smaller pair of dress shoes, you might want to buy the thin insoles from them.

Do Yourself a Favor -- Buy These Nov 11, 2010
By Amazon Customer
An orthopedist recommended Spenco Rx Orthotics to me several years ago when I thought I had plantar fasciitis, and I have been using them regularly since then. (To save money, I would move them from one shoe to another, and bought the recent pair to have the luxury of avoiding that task. The original pair are still fine.) I do not have flat feet, but the firm support that the Spenco arches provide has many positive effects. First, my feet do not hurt, and I can walk long distances. Second, my knees no longer hurt, and I was having great difficulty walking up stairs. Your knees are affected by the way in which your feet touch the ground, and the Spenco arch has made all the difference without any other changes (for example, no knee brace or surgery). Yes, they are more expensive than drugstore arch supports (though the Amazon price was far lower than any other, including eBay). But do yourself a favor and buy the Spenco Rx Orthotics. (P.S. I don't work for Spenco or their advertisers, and I rarely praise a product with so much enthusiasm.)

Outstanding, for me.... Jan 02, 2012
I am a 59 year-old male. I didn't read all the reviews here, but many are from people with HIGH arches. I have LOW ("fallen") arches, and these supports are just great. Some folks have said they need bigger (higher) shoes, and yes, that might be necessary for some. In my case, there's room in my shoes to accommodate the supports - of course I removed the original insoles.
When first putting the shoes on after inserting the supports, I felt the arch "bump", but it's such a big help and not a bother. In fact, it feels a bit like a massage - like someone massaging my arches with their thumbs - when I walk; not an uncomfortable feeling at all.
I don't have a normally bad back - everyone has some back pain sometimes, I bet - and I started with very comfortable shoes in the first place. But I can tell you that for me, my feet and back feel better and I can wear my shoes longer without discomfort than before.
I have also used these supports with my dress shoes, which are definitely less comfortable then my casual shoes, and they are a HUGE help there as well.
Good work, Spenco!

Great! Jan 12, 2012
I really like these orthotics. When I found out I needed orthotics to continue running, I also found out that my insurance company couldn't cover it so I obviously had to avoid buying the customized $700 ones. However, I feel that these are just fine even for someone who has "the worth arches [my doctor] has ever seen." They have a hard plastic bottom unlike most other orthotics so you can keep pounding em down when you run. They will last quite a while before you have to replace them, which will be obvious when you push down the plastic arch and see how easy it is for it to bounce back up.
However, the sizing is a little weird; try buying one size bigger than your own and then buying corresponding sized sneakers as well. For example, I'm a 6 1/2 so I have 7-8 orthotics and size 7 sneakers. You're going to need the space with these in.

Podiatrists Prescription Nov 30, 2011
By Just a tsp
My podiatrist requested I use these Inserts. He instructed me to soak them for 3 minutes in boiling water, squeeze out the water as much as possible, and wear for 25 minutes first day, then dry them and increase wear 1 additional hour each day. They work great and feel great. I received them within 24 hours after ordering!
