Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotics Review and Giveaway


Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotics
As my husband and my friends can attest, I do not make the best choices in the selection of my footwear.  I have always been more of a fashion over function type of gal when it came to shoes.  I usually choose high heels over flats to make up for my lack of height and willingly sacrificed my foot comfort. 

I recently started a new job where it is a requirement of all employees to wear stark white tennis shoes (I know, how boring!!). They also specify the brand and model of the shoe.  You might be thinking, how much walking does one do in a normal office type job.  Well the answer to that is ALOT, especially since the building I work in (one of many!) is 535,000-square-feet.  Yep, you read that right over 1/2 a million square feet in one building.  Granted I do not walk all of that since most of it is production space but I get in my fair share of walking around to get to all the management personnel I need to work with.

As anyone that has shopped for tennis shoes can confirm, the same pair of shoes will fit everyone differently.  I have a need for a higher arch than other people I know and if I wear certain types of tennis shoes, it causes me pain in my shins, knee and lower back.

Dr. Scholl's state-of the-art pressure measurement system and Foot Mapping technology will quickly measure your foot and recommend the Custom Fit Orthotic that is right for you. Find a kiosk in a store near you.  After visiting the Sr. Scholl's Foot Mapping Kiosk, I found that of the 14 custom fit options,my custom fit inserts were the CF310's. 

I have used orthotics before, I had some hard plastic thing I put in my dress shoes that was supposed to help me with knee and back pain but I never noticed much relief.  I mostly wore them to placate my husband as a compromise for my shoe selections (he is all about function over fashion, as are most guys!)

Dr. Scholl's custom fit orthotics are made up of 4 layers, each designed to give you comfort and relief.  The Cradleflex support system is uniquely designed to help support and stabilize your arch, while the extra support layers are designed for customized cushioning and comfort.

I have been wearing my Dr. Scholl's custom fit orthotics for about two weeks now and have noticed that my feet are considerable less tired at the end of each day.  I can not speak to any clinical improvement to knee or back problems but I can say that I have not had as much regular knee pain as I normally have. 

Overall, I am really enjoying my Dr. Scholl's custom fit orthotics and will continue to test them out in my beautiful plain white boring work tennis shoes!

I would like to win because I have somewhat larger feet than other people aparently do because they don't make 1/2 sizes in footwear above 12. I always have to buy shoes that don't quite fit right - either too big or too small. I usually opt for too big though, so maybe a nice pair of Dr. Scholl's would help "fill the gap" and help me be a little more comfortable every day.

I was told by my physical therapist this week that I need orthotics but I can't afford them. Dr. Scholls is a brand that I trust -- like that the orthotics are made with four separate layers.

I learned that these inserts are 4 layers thick. Every single one I have tried has fell apart. I would love to try these so I can limit my podiatrist visits.

The function is more likely to have a good result than merely on fashion especially if there really exist a history of problems towards the same.
