Paul I was always sceptical about arch supports and the like. I have been in heavy construction for 20+ years and during that time I have suffered increasingly with back, knee and foot pain. Just part of the job right. After a few serious injuries things grew dramatically worse. By the time I walked into Goodfeet, I was barely able to walk unassisted. It was immediate the relief I felt. Who knew?? There was a gentlemen that came into the store at the same time as I, he had also been in a serious accident and crushed both feet and ankles. He walked with two canes. We both walked out of the store that day unassisted and skipping... literally. The joy that comes with that feeling is ineffable. You just don't get it.. until you do. I never realized how much pain I was in, until I wasn't in it anymore. Thanks Goodfeet. You truly have made my life better. I am no where near the grouch I used to be so my wife thanks you too! 2 years with Goodfeet and still skipping.
