Sweatshop have recently announced that they'll be providing this service - anyone tried it yet? Noticed that there was no obligation to buy but no mention of cost in the publicity.
Thanks for that Spamalot - am in Middlesex. Sweatshop give the option to "try before you buy" so thought that they might be worth a try. Interested to hear what people think.
can't go wrong with a 'try before you buy'
I have a pair, got them from the Expo - Sweatshop was doing them.
I previously have had my gait measured by two different companies (not sweatshop) and been told that I was a neutral runner. All O.K until I got Sciatica and just before London got Shin splints. Went to this facility which they told me that I overpronate and I came out £40.00 lighter but with insoles. I didn't run London with them and had a bad day.
Since then I put the insoles in my neutral trainers and shin splints totally gone and now just have a slight pain with the Sciatica. Everything's been fine using the insoles.
The insoles helped me out a lot initially, Sweatshop told me to go back in six months because your gait can change using them? - but nearest shop is over 50 miles away, so have decided on trying out stability shoes.
Thanks for the feedback guys - I'll definitely give them a try!
bought some of these insoles today
My feet were analyzed with the use of a" podoscope". Flat unmolded insoles were heated for 2 mins in a special machine. The heated insoles were placed on molding pillows and the Footbalance expert molded the heated insoles to fit my feet perfectly while maintaining correct alignment.I had to stand still and then rock back as far as I could go and then go up on tiptoes. The insoles set hard within a few mins. I have high arches and overpronate. I wear rigid orthotics in my running shoes;but was wanting insoles for my everyday day shoes. The insoles + the molding etc cost £40. If I tried the insoles in the shop and didn't like them- they would be reheated and flattened to their original state at £0 to me.
I found as soon as I put the insoles in my shoes I could feel the support esp under the arch of my right foot- it felt really stable and was definitely relieving the pressure on the ball of my foot , I purchased the insoles and have worn them all day today(you are meant to wear them gradually if you haven't had insoles/orthotics before). I am v pleased with my insoles
