PROFOOT Review & Giveaway

My feet are a problem.

I've dealt with plantar fasciitis on and off over the years, I over pronate, I have a heel spur, had to have a bone growth removed from my big toe, and my toes are kind of funny looking.

So I wasn't surprised when Profoot contacted me to try out their products.

I use custom inserts in my running shoes, but I wear regular inserts in my older shoes when I'm out and about.  The first thing I tried were the 2 oz Miracle insoles.  They are made of Vita-Foam, and are very light, the top layer molds to the shape of your foot. I broke them in while we spent the afternoon at the mall, they fit my shoe perfectly, and didn't slide around.  For my feet, they're a good option for walking, but because of my high arch I need to stick to my custom inserts for running. 


I have one toe on my right foot that tends to tuck itself under my middle toe when I run. I have a weird callus there that no pedicure can erase. Sometimes it gets sore, or a blister forms, so I stick on a band-aid until it calms down.  This was a perfect situation for the Moleskin, which is made with Velvetex, a microfiber that allows skin to breathe.

I cut out a piece about the size of my toe, I noticed right away how soft the Moleskin was.  I wrapped my toe sticky side down, and went for a run on the treadmill.  It was much more comfortable than the band-aid, and it stayed in place until I took off my socks.  

Last week we had several dry, sunny days in a row, so instead of running, I went biking!  After the second day, my left heel was a bit sore, which happens when I first start riding again, so I figured I would try the plantar fasciitis heel insert.  

These have a gel insert for shock absorption, and come with little stickers to anchor the insert to your shoe, which is a great idea.  It did give my heel good support, and I think I'm going to wear these in my Frye Cowboy boots, because those make my feet hurt after a while.


Profoot is giving away a set of inserts, the heel inserts and moleskin, to FOUR winners!
