To try and completely get rid of my heel pain, I persuaded myself to put my faith in orthotics again. My training partner suggested that I go to Podiart in Nefelejcs Street, where the staff were very helpful and kind. I had two pairs of orthotic insoles made – for training shoes and race shoes (these were even more specialised) – which I put in my shoes last week. Until now I’ve been breaking them in, walking in them, and that was fine. Then, today, I wore them for my morning run and so far I feel positive about them. Naturally, I don’t expect a miracle, though actually I wouldn’t mind one, but I think my heels feel more comfortable. I know this will happen gradually, but one thing is sure: compared to my other insoles that were made in March and April, my Podiart orthotics are space technology.
So I can honestly say that I recommend them to anyone who may be uncertain about orthotics and suffers from foot problems. Until now they’ve done the trick for me, and this can only mean they’ll be good in the future too. Now I feel I have a real chance to beat my heel pain.
