"I recently had a recurrence of my foot problem while I was on holiday. One night, after a particularly long day on my feet wandering around a city, my foot was so bad I could hardly walk and was hobbling around. Packing that night to get a flight the next day, I discovered that I had been walking around for two days without my orthotics in as I had left them in the shoes I had been wearing before. Put them back in and soon recovered. Just goes to prove how effective they are." G.P.
