I suffer from weak arches so proper footwear is crucial not to have foot pain and gel arches really help in that extra support
I received these to try because I have higher arches and usually find a large gap between the arch of my shoes and the arch of my feet. This makes it very tiring to walk and stand because the only support you get are on the front of your feet.
The Gel Support Ultra Arch has a great feel to it and has a sticky backside to prevent the insoles from slipping around inside the shoes. However, personally these are still too low for me when wearing heels. For flats, however, they do provide some relief and shock absorption in the arch area. Maybe I should try stacking them!
I was given these supports to review because I often have problems with my feet. If I wear shoes that don't have support built in my feet start to ach by the end of the day. This is a big problem because I am a girl who loves shoes and often the ones that I pick have little support.
I really like the feel of these gel inserts because they're hard enough to give support but the gel is soft and forms to the natural arch of your foot. The only down side to these inserts is that they can’t be easily taken in and out of every pair of shoe. They bottom side of each insert has a plastic sheet that removes to reveal a sticky side to keep the insert place, so it's difficult if you want to remove them and use them in another pair - however if you do not remove the plastic you can use them without sticking them in. Overall, I was happy with how they made my feet feel and they are definitely worth $7.
