Ed doesn’t like it when I post pictures of him on the blog. In fact, he told me that if I must, he prefers that I post pictures of his feet.When I had an opportunity to review Footminders orthotics, I knew that I had to step up (couldn’t resist) because Ed was recently diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and given a prescription for expensive orthotics.
When I visited Footminders website and saw what they had to say about their product, I knew that we were onto something.
…unique in that it is designed for specific conditions resulting from misalignment and imbalance caused by flat feet or low arches such as plantar fasciitis, heel pain, knee pain, etc.. It is in these cases that the firm arch support, realignment and cushioning provided by our orthotics can be noticed…
There are three types to choose from; Comfort, Catwalk and Casual Orthotics which we received in a size medium for Men (7.5-9). It fit just right (Ed is a size 9) and didn’t move around within the shoe. Regardless, if it did, they provided instructions on how to trim them for the perfect fit.
When Ed first put them on, they felt uncomfortable which was understandable and Footminders made very clear would probably happen. However, they were not painful in any way.
After allowing a few days for adjustment, Ed started to notice the difference. After sitting for several hours, when he got up, his plantar fasciitis had all but disappeared.
At only $24.95, we won’t need to remortgage the house. In fact, we’ll get another pair as they’re having such a postive affect!
If you’re having issues that may be fixed by orthotics, I highly suggest that you look into this affordable solution.

Yeah, my hubby has a pair in his workboots and doesn’t come home with sore toes anymore. They really are great for the price.
So where’s the photo of Ed’s feet? 😉
I was recently diagnosed with the same thing, and my wonderful doctor didn’t send me off to get the expensive ones thankfully!! She actually sent me to an REI store to go and get some orthotics called “Super Feet”–and they were around $30. Within a week, my feet felt SO MUCH better!! I will have to check these out as well…
I have a loved one with plantar fasciitis. Thank you for the review!
fredamans – lol! (feet pic)
These look great – I have the beginnings of PF and this sounds like it would help.
My husband could use these, his feet always hurt him. Thank you for sharing..
I recently broke my toe and am finding how much I need something like this in my shoe for just a little added support. This is definitely going on my “wish list” for Christmas this year!!!
OH I totally needed to see this today. My husband is always complaining about foot pain and we haven’t found anything that works. I’m totally going to look into these!
This is a product for me! I suffer from diabetic foot pain and I think this would help so much! Thanks for the great review!
I’ll have to tell my father in law about these. He has a lot of foot pain and at such a reasonable price these are worth a try.
I like that they have a 'Catwalk' line for women's dress shoes. No longer will I have to wear 'granny' shoes in order to wear my orthotics!
This article is great, it is important to know how to alleviate the pain of your feet. If you are a runner this information must take it into account. I’ve also heard that Epsom salt baths help to relieve foot pain and plantar fasciitis.
