I picked up my custom orthotics this morning. I thought they were just a custom insert that you throw in your shoes and go on your way. Wrong! They are a custom insert that you put in your shoes, however, you have to break them in. You can’t just start wearing them because they hurt….a lot.
They came with instructions for 5 days of break in time. After that I’m supposed to increase the wear time for an hour each day. I wore them home, which took care of the 1 hour the first day. Halfway home my feet were killing me and I was just driving my truck.
They are very different from how my feet normally function so it will take some getting used to for sure. I hope they help once they are broken in because my knee is extremely painful after my workout lately. Today it felt like a hot knife was being stabbed into my knee as soon as I stepped on the bottom stair to come up after my workout.
