    My friend has been complaining about his feet hurting a lot at work. He's on his feet 10 to 12 hours at a time. I'd like to get him something to help for his birthday. Any suggestions?

    You're probably best off getting him a gift certificate to a specialty store that specializes in inserts and that type of stuff. They'll scan your friend's feet to determine what the best insert would be for him.

But he needs to go to the store..the mesure your feet not only in leng, but in wide, also each style will vary in size... good luck.. they costa 150.00 aprox... but they wort it and they last a long time..icon_smile.gif

    You can always buy him a massage gift certificate. I am sure there must be a licensed masseuse in the area that does reflexology. (I just had a massage and feel great)!!!icon_biggrin.gif

    may depend what he wears at work.
    and how long he keeps the same shoes .
    Nothing worse than a worn out pair of sport shoes .
    And many cheap budget shoes one buys don't last beyond 4-6 months. Then they offer no support at all.

    Inserts can help but seeing a kinesiologist could help too.

    A runner friend introduced me to shoe inserts by way of the 'Fleet Feet' stores. No more foot & knee problems for me. They'll watch the way he walks / stands and find a good shoe / insert for him. The inserts themselves weren't too expensive, but the running shoes weren't cheap - still, worth it for pain-free running.

    Superfeet.
    They make insoles for a variety of shoes and purposes, e.g. running, walking, casual, flat feet, etc. They are about $40 each.

    if he has flat feet, then he should go see a podiatrist and get it rectified.

    Orthotics is the best solution, they don't come cheap, but it is worth every penny, as a good pair will make the pain go away.

    Make sure they are well made though, cause a cheaply made pair won't help at all...

    Mine cost about $400 and the minute I put them in my shoes, and wear them, the pain in my knees and hips disappear...
