    Does anyone know if shoe insoles actually help? Cus at my job I stand on my feet lots, and they hurt at the end of the day pretty bad.

    Anyway if I got something like...

    IDK...

    Magellan?

    Would that help?

    Insoles do help. But when apply your weight to your feet for a long period of time your feet our bound to hurt. Try getting some DR.s Shoals or something. I'm sure youll get over the pain after a while though.

    What about crocs and the like if allowed by your dress code?
    Nurses etc use them alot on long shifts on their feet.

    Insoles do help.

    I found, when I was working at a standing/walking type job, sitting on a table and letting your feet dangle would help them from throbbing. Of course, after a few months, I got used to standing for 8 hours with the occasional sit. ...now that I think of it, that probably wasn't a good thing.

    standing 8hrs never helps any:P
    insoles = extra support and cushioning so they do help

    yeah they look like turds but id take the opinion of the probably millions of happy wearers and massive quantities of nurses etc that are on their feet for more than some guy in frys over yours.
    I guess the reported static may not be good there though.

    Remember, you can also double stack these things if you have enough room in your shoes. I have to wear boots in military uniform and these are a godsend.

    try getting a good pair of shoes with airsoles like dr. martins (no joke), they really help.

    small piece of trivia, Dr. martins shoes were actually invented in Germany, for German housewives

    really? didn't know that, quite helpful considering I just bought a pair of mickey mouses that fit, except inside they are far too high for my feet.... [/hijack]
