I've always been flat footed as long as I can remember. As a 63 year old, I took a four hour per shift job on my feet walking on concrete flooring with a 15 minute break after 2 hours. I had no idea how much my feet would hurt and on the first shift, I was wearing my comfortable Sketchers. After two hours on my feet, I felt as though I could not continue, but of course I forced myself. The second 4 hour shift, two days later, was better as I wore my expensive Clark shoes. Better, but still my feet were killling me. I had good New Balance running type shoes, but they were white and I was required to wear black. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on shoes for an $8.00 an hour job so that's when I went on line and saw Dr. Scholl's air pillo gel shoes. I trust Dr. Scholl and for just $20 a pair, I ordered them. They came a few days early JUST in time for my next 4 hr. shift. I did what another reviewer had suggested and bought the Dr. Scholl gel inserts. Because I didn't have scissors on me, I stuffed the standard size 10's into my size 9 shoes and began working. I was wearing nylon knee high type socks. My feet slid a bit and I could tell my two big toes were beginning to get blisters. After two hours, at my break, I took the socks off and went without any socks at all. Better, but because I hadn't cut the gels to fit inside my shoes, my toes were getting smashed into the front of the shoe and so my toes were killing me. When I got home, my dear husband cut the gel inserts to the size 9 and put them back into my shoes. The next time I worked, I wore cotton type ankle socks and all was well. My body was sore working on concrete, but my feet were so much better. Thank you Dr. Scholl.
