Profoot Review {Plus a giveaway!}

Recently, I was given the opportunity to sample some products from Profoot.


Profoot is the leading brand in footcare products. Their product line so extensive that it covers everything from pain relief, anti-fungal cures, various insoles, dry/cracked skin relief, corn wraps and so much more. Profoot's products are sold in over 20 countries on six continents.


I was really delighted when Pam Cress, Marketing VP for Profoot, offered to let me review some of the products she represents. As a mom to a 2-year-old and a newborn, I knew that anything she sent would be a god-send for my tired feet. With only so much time in my day to be a mommy, wife, homemaker, business owner and blogger, there leaves little time to take care of me, much less to pamper my aching feet.


Profoot sent me a package of items that included The 2 oz. Miracle® Custom Molding Insoles for Women, Women's Plantar Fasciitis orthotics and Velvetex™ Moleskin.


The first things I checked out were The 2 oz. Miracle® Custom Molding Insoles. Pam let me know that these insoles are, "3x lighter than comparable gel insoles, which can add up to a 1/2 pound of weight to your shoes. Profoot 2 oz Miracle® Insoles feature Vita-foam technology, for custom molded support, and added shock absorption." After reading up on the insoles, I also found out that they are made of two layers. The bottom layer provides shock absorption and support, while the top layer is made of a futuristic memory foam.

Profoot's website claims that within an hour, the insoles will mold to the shape of your feet, just like custom orthotics. Their lightweight design causes less fatigue, and they help to reduce friction, or what they call "that burning feeling." A great thing about the insoles is that they have contoured lines on the back, representing women's shoe sizes 6 through 10. You simply cut along the line that matches your shoe size, insert them into your shoes, and enjoy the comfort.

I first used these before leaving for a long day of shopping. Foot comfort is a total necessity on a full day of walking. I cut the insoles with a simple pair of scissors, as they really are light and thin enough to cut with no problem. After wearing them around to my first stop on my day of shopping, I had forgotten they were there! I noticed them in the beginning, only because it was a foreign object under my feet. But then they had practically melted away! These inserts have given me so much comfort that I'm ready to buy them for every pair of shoes I own. And since they retail at just around $5.00-$7.00 per pair, I can totally afford to do so!


Next, I tried out the Plantar Fasciitis orthotics. Profoot's Plantar Fasciitis Orthotics is their newest product, which debuted this year. These orthotics are clinically proven to help relieve heel pain associated with plantar fasciitis. They are made of three parts: (1) a deep heel cup that provides support and distributes your weight as you move, (2) a firm arch that supports the plantar fascia and transfers pressure off your heels, and (3) a gel heel insert that gives extra protection while offering shock absorption. They are accepted by the American Podiatric Medical Assn.

The inserts are so comfortable, but are also very supportive. They take so much pressure off my heels, which used to cause an achy feeling in my feet by the end of every night. Not having that heel pain has also helped me to sleep better, since I'm more relaxed. If you get the chance to try them out, you should definately take the time to check out the free pain relief exercise guide, included in every package. I must say that this is easily the best $7.00-$10.00 you could spent on your feet.

Finally, I tried out the Velvetex™ Moleskin. The package includes two sheets that measure 3.25" x 5". All you have to do is cut a piece from the sheet to cover any sore or painful areas on your feet. The moleskin provides a soft cushion for even your most tender spots. Pam told me that Profoot Velvetex™ Moleskin is, "loved by runners," and that it, "is the softest moleskin that you can buy."

I can't count how many times I've had to shelf a favorite pair of shoes after it has cut into my heel or rubbed my toes raw. This moleskin is amazing! Not only does it blend in slightly with my skin tone, but it has let me wear my favorite, albeit painful, shoes again! I can't believe this stuff only runs about $3.00-$5.00, because it's wonderful.


Profoot offers products to help fix your foot-related problems, without draining your wallet! Most of their products retail for less than $10, but offer priceless comfort and relief for your feet. And Profoot offers this satisfaction guarantee: "We're confident that you'll love your PROFOOT products. If you are not satisfied for any reason, please return your PROFOOT product for refund or replacement." You can purchase Profoot products at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid as well as on-line at Amazon.com and Drugstore.com. Keep checking their site for special offers, like coupons for products.

Here, Pam tells us a little bit about Profoot.

"Profoot was founded in 1987 by Dr. Leonard Feldman, a chiropractor and entrepreneur.  The company is still family owned and operated in Brooklyn NY.  Profoot is known as the innovator in the footcare category.  We are proud of the team of podiatrists, orthopedists and bio-mechanical engineers we consult with to design products.  While we try to create items that are unique, we also want them to be affordable.  The majority of the company's products retail for less than $10, making them the best foot care values in the market."
