Good Feet Store Informative - They did help me, but BEWARE of their sales contract!
FORT COLLINS, COLORADO -- I have extremely flat feet and plantar fasciitis, on a recent business trip to CO my feet were killing me, it had been getting progressively worse and nothing was helping, and I could no longer stretch my feet out enough to ease the pain, and I was loosing sleep to it as well. So I went in to the Good Feet store hoping to find relief. After fitting through a few different supports I decided to bite, the pain was really bad that day and I was on the road for 3 weeks so no doctor visit was possible. Earlier a Physical Therapist friend said that it would be hit and miss with doctors trying to fix this as well. So I paid the big bucks -$700 for 3 support sets and a pair of new shoes and thought if it doesn't work well I'll take another financial beating. I had already spent probably over $150 for all the Doctor Scholls type garbage during the previous months and that got me nowhere - it never helped and any of those store bought arch supports caused more pain. I'm on week 4 since my visit to GF and the things are working, I'm able to walk with minimal or no pain, sleep without interruption and I am now working out again, something I had stopped 6 months ago due to this. So this process seems to work for me, but I can understand others having complaints. The bill of sale is a real snake oil deal with you only able to get store credit if you want to return. I was surprised when I read over all of that in the store and I almost walked out, except my feet weren't hurting as much after I walked around for 10 minutes with the "exerciser" support. I'm not sure how they stay in business with this type of contract. Had I not been on the road, I would have immediately walked out after reading the Good Feet "sales contract" and found a podiatrist. Judging by the other reviews - getting relief is hit and miss, I think it was more luck then science that these things are working for me. I look forward to trying these while skiing, I have custom orthotic foot beds for my boots - 3 years ago I spent $200 on those and I could hardly stand the pain they inflicted - no refund on those either, so again I feel I'm just lucky with Good Feet.
