SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- I have suffered from foot pain for years. Five years ago, I spent almost $1000 for lifetime inserts from then NEOVITA. Of course they went out of business in 2010. Now there is Good Feet and of course I tried it, but it was the same hard sell, intimidating sales procedures, and of course all this coming from someone who has about as much medical trainings as I do in flying a fighter jet (I was a grunt in the Marines).
Now, did the inserts help me? At first but then they did more damage as they must continue to be changed but when you pay for lifetime and the company closes two years later...that is a rip-off. I did not purchase from Good Feet because it reminded me of Neo-Vita (they could be twins).
Coercive Sales Tactics
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA -- Beware of this chain of stores! I went in to find relief for aching feet, not really knowing what I would find. After trying various arch supports, the sales person "helpfuly" suggested 2 pairs without ... read full review2 Replies - Latest reply on 07/31/2013
Purchased three sets of foot supports from a Good Feet store in Denver Co. They made my foot problem worse not better. Finally went to a podiatrist and got my foot pain fixed. Stay away from Good Feet, they don't work. Add reply
I have been wearing Good Feet inserts for 10 years and couldn't be happier! I wear them in "cute" sandals, dressy open shoes and my golf shoes! I tried everything before I found Good Feet. I have high arches and these give me the extra support I need. Considering I wear them every day they are not expensive and long outlast my shoes. Highly recommended!!!! Add reply
BRANDON, FLORIDA -- What a waste of money. A $30 pair of insoles from the drug store work better. The insert is way too rigid to be beneficial. Stick to the soft gel-like insoles found at Wal-Mart or Walgreens or CVS or any drug store. The salesman kept repeating . . . "There are no refunds." I should have known they would not help . . . his comments should have raised all kinds of red flags. Please don't bother with this company. The insoles just are a total waste of money.1 Replies - Latest reply on 07/05/2013Add reply
BEWARE: They rope you by taking an impression of your feet and then tell you all these problems! Then they do a balance test. Everybody fails this test regardless of your condition! They star off with devices for $39, but tell you that won't help you. Next thing you know its $500!!! Don't go there! 1 Replies - Latest reply on 07/21/2013Add reply

Should Be Pulled Off the Market.

JUNO BEACH, FLORIDA -- As a Surgical Asst. I am on my feet, standing in one spot for hours on end. One day, we had a 14 hour case and I was stiff and achy. I was talking to the Doctor and told him, "I think I am next on the table, I am ready for surgery." He laughed and asked me what was wrong. I told him my back and feet were killing me. He asked if I have tried orthopedics, I said no.

He told me, I can go to a million Doctors and him being one of them and all of them will tell me the same thing...get a pair.
Some of the Doctors make custom orthopedics, but a lot don't count the fact that they are making a custom one out of a sick foot. So, I asked him... where should I go? Should I just get some at the store? He answered, "No. Go to this place, "Good Feet". You can go to "Delray or Juno Beach".
I did, and he was right. After I got them I asked him how he knew about them. He laughed and said, "What do you think I've been doing all these years standing in the OR? I got my first pair about 12 years ago, would never step into the OR without them."
Thanks! Great product...and makes my job a lot easier.

LEXINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- I purchased Good Feet arch supports about three years ago. I swooned at the price, but my feet had been in such pain that I went for it, even though the sales person was clear that they do not take returns.

These supports have made a big difference. Not only did the foot pain go away, but nightly foot cramps that had been keeping me awake at night for years also went away. About a year ago, I managed to lose one of the mid-weight supports. Because I had also purchased the the heavy weight and the slipper weight supports, I was able to go for around four months without replacing it. But eventually I did, because I had used the middle weight pair a lot.
Two downsides (besides cost): 1) I can't dance quite as fluidly as previously when wearing supports. 2) My ankles are not as flexible as other people in my yoga class. Is this caused by the supports? I continue to wear these because after a while, my feet are in pain without them.

Trying to buy a pair of shoes so my feet won't hurt backed fired. The sales person didn't even measure my foot the first visit. She asked me what my shoe size was and put me in a mans shoe which was to small. Went back and the other employee wanted to sell me more product. All I wanted was a pair of shoes that fit and my feet don't hurt. This time she sold me shoes that were to big. Returning my third time, the store manager said to me "make sure I had the right size because I couldn't return this pair". Ah, I thought that was his job to make sure I had the right size. My feet still hurt, and I will never buy a pair of expensive shoes from Good Feet Shoes again.
