Walks And Walking – SOLE Insulated Response Footbeds
With winter soon setting in I decided to start using a pair of insulated orthopaedic footbeds to keep my feet warm and try and help with stability.
I got a little carried away with the excitement of having to put them in the oven but thought it would be quite interesting to see how they performed against others I have used in the past. I followed the instructions to the letter and preheated the oven to 200 degrees and popped them in until the opti-therm indicator turned black and they were ‘ready to mould’.
I went for a quick walk and they immediately felt comfortable. I gave them a very good work out this week as I was on a walking holiday in Weymouth. The first walk was 3 miles, then 6 miles and another one at 10 miles. By the end of the holiday I felt a noticeable difference in how less tired my feet were and I was able to recover slightly quicker than usual.
