Walk Fit Orthotic Insoles

I am always skeptical about health items, especially ones sold on TV. Now this review comes courtesy of my wife. She had been complaining about her feet hurting. She used to work for a podiatrist so she has some general knowledge in the area of the foot (and much more then i have). Hold on you’re saying… a pod what???? A podiatrist is a foot doctor. And as for my knowledge... I know that each foot should have 5 little piggies.

So imagine my surprise when delivered to my home was the Walk Fit™ orthotic insoles by Phase 4™.

From the folks at www.asseenontv.com, The Walk Fit “orthotic insoles help to reduce pain in feet, knees, hips and back. The are arch supports insoles that realign your bones, joint, tendons and muscles helping alleviate heel pain, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, tendonitis, general foot fatigue, knee and lower back pain caused by misalignment of the feet. WalkFit insoles come with 3 arch inserts: Low, Medium and High providing you with customized comfort. You and your feet will notice the increase in arch support and comfort. WalkFit orthotics are perfect for use in all of your shoes. Available in men's sizes 6-14½ and women's sizes 6-12½.”

Ease of use 5 Stars
The premise is simple enough, stick them in your shoe.
Now being skeptical, I know that my shoes already had a bumpy thing (technical term) to support my arch. I am not sure if she had to remove her bumpy thing first.

Actual performance 0 Stars
While walking past the closet the other day I saw them sitting on the shelf. That’s never a good sign. When I inquired, she advised that her feet still hurt while using them.

Final thoughts on practicality
Foot inserts probably are best when a Doctor fits them to the individual. A Doctor can also determine if a foot insert will help with a specific issue.

Perhaps my wife did not give them enough time. I only know that the end result is that they are sitting on the shelf.

Final Score
0 out of 5 stars


  1. I am also having problems with my flat feet and try to find some solutions with orthotics products.
    Thanks for this information about this useless product, I would certainly buy it to try with its cheap price, but as you say it, it is not worth it I guess.

  2. I can't say if it would work for you. I only can relay my experience (or in this case, my wife's experience).

    I always encourage people to research products they purchase.

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to share your thoughts.

  3. These did the trick for me. A little uncomfortable the first couple of days till my feet got use to them. Don't try the highest support first unless you have a really high arch. Remember that the purpose is to slightly reshape the foot and add support.

  4. Thats fantastic Construction Guy. I'm glad that they helped you out.

    Thanks for taking your valuable time to tell of your experience.

    Thanks for reading my blog.
