I have a very high arch to my foot. I have tried all varieties of sneakers and no matter what after a long day of clinicals my feet, knees, and back are just ACHING. I can't seem to find a shoe that has the arch support I need. Anyone here with the same issue? If so could you recommend an insole/shoe with good arch support?

i have the opposite problem-my once high arches fell in nursing school.

i have had several different arch supports made by podiatrists, costing a couple hundred dollars a pair. none of them worked!

the one i found that works the best is by spenco, $20 a pair. i found it originally in a local drugstore where i lived. a few years later i found them at a medical supply store. dr. scholl's now has a kiosk in some drug stores where you stand on it and it tells you what kind of insoles you need. haven't been able to find a store yet but will keep on looking. good luck...:smokin:

i tried this kiosk, and it's really cool. it tells you about where your pressure points are in your feet and where you need the most support. i bought a pair and they are ok...didn't like having to pay $45 for my insoles, but whatever.

My physical therapist recommends Walkfit insoles. I have yet to try them though, so I can not give a personal recommendation, but she swears by them. Here is a link:

WalkFit Insoles, Gel Insoles

Working in a Nursing Home Facility. We, in the nursing department have searched and tried several insoles, we tried memory foam insoles, gel insoles, air, etc. but most provided comfort that didn't even last a day until we tried liquid insoles. We decided to use liquid insoles and even provided the entire staff with liquid insoles. Among the few liquid insoles brands out there, the best cheap insoles are from SnugFeel Insoles. They are affordable but the quality is comparable to the most expensive ones out there. SnugFeel Insoles became a part of our household as well.
