Does the Dr. Scholl's custom fit orthotics with the footmapping really work?

Sore achy feet at work. I'm thinking it could be due to inadequate/inappropriate arch support. I've tried regular gel insoles to no avail. Has anyone here had good results from the footmapping kiosk? Is it worth it?

I haven't tried the foot mapping but I have used a few different Dr. Scholl's inserts to no avail. Even went to a specialty shoe store and stepped on their machine and bought the insoles and shoes they recommended. That didn't work either. I just doubled up the Dr.Scholls and wore diabetic socks and New Balance tennis shoes and that seemed to work the best for me. Maybe you should make an appt. with a Podiatrist like my neighbor did and he says his feet never felt so good. He bought some work shoes from him. Good luck!

Thanks. With my lousy health insurance I'd like to avoid the doctor if I can. But I'll keep that in mind if nothing else works.

I had to pay for one myself out of pocket. As did my neighbor. It was worth it in the end though!

No they have never worked for me. Sorry. Depending on exactly what the problem is would depend on your next course of action. If your feet hurt all the time, because of a lot of standing try different shoes. After much investigation and trial and error I found that people who stand for 8+ hours a day do pretty well with a shoe called Crocs. They are hideous looking but your feet wont hurt at the end of the day. If however you have fallen arches or bunion issues a podiatrist would be the best solution. Hope your dog's feel better soon.
