STRUTZ – Arch Support Without Shoes

Ugh! The whining!  My husband constantly complains about his feet hurting!  Its getting to be a real problem, to the point that we are not able to be as active outdoors as we use to be. 🙁 So we’ve been looking for short term and long term solutions to this pain. Actually he doesn’t whine too much, suffers in silence mostly. We need a solution though, for quality of life, and to get some work done around the house!!!

He’s tried massaging insoles, and those have been really great at keeping his feet ‘happy’.  But they’re not there to fix his apparent arch-less-ness.

‘FEET’ on Review of SOLE ANGEL Human Shock Absorbers from STRUTZ

So, the opportunity came up to try out Sole Angels from Strutz -so he/we did. These little cushions wrap around your foot with elastic and, as their marketing lingo says “provide instant relief to sore, achy feet”.  What it does is place a soft cushion right behind the ball of your foot and basically helps support your arch.  To be right to it- they do exactly that- they help keep your foot arched so your weight is distributed more appropriately.  He’s been trying them out for 2 weeks.

STRUTZ SOLE ANGELS are Similar to Orthotics Without Shoes

OK, I’m NOT a PODIATRIST.  BUT this is my opinion: whether you have custom orthotics, shoe inserts you buy from Dr. Scholl’s, or something ‘custom’ sized form a Good Feet Store, those are all orthotics that you wear IN YOUR SHOE.  You can swap them between your shoes, and even ‘wear around the house’ shoes, but, to be honest- that never works.  Shoes in the house can #1 be messy, and #2 can feel too rigid and formal.  The absolute most beautiful thing about Sole Angels is that you can wear them without shoes!! Because the elastic band wraps around your foot and really really really does stay in place- your the arch supporting cushion stays with you when you’re in just your socks.  Mind you its winter and they haven’t been tried barefoot- but anything without shoes is a great tool! Oh wait, I just looked at their website- they have another product Strutz Beach Walker, that is Made for the beach/barefeet- outstanding!!

How long do STRUTZ last?

We’ve had STRUTZ in the house for two weeks.  The cushion pad has had its break in period, and is has about 90% of the strength it had on day one, and probably 95% of what it had on day 2.  So I’m very happy with how its ‘holding up’.  The fabric is treated with an anti-microbial agent and helps prevent odor- and we haven’t had to wash them yet.  Instructions say wash with soap and water and keep them out of the washing machine.  There’s also a 100% guarantee on the product which is really hard to argue with- if you’re not satisfied you can send them back- and they are so small- shipping would cost next to nothing.

Last Words and Recommendation

As a blogger, our family gets to try out a lot of products.  Hands down, had we known about these SIMPLE devices 6 months ago, we would have bought them.  They really work, and they work without shoes– which is everything.

    I learned these were developed out of necessity after the founder was injured.

    I learned that these products were designed by one of the cofounders after developing foot problems after a skiing accident.

    I learned the Sole Angel® is proven to provide instant relief for tired, achy feet and to ease heel, arch, ball of foot, knee, hip and lower back pain caused by stress and shock to the foot, as well as ease pain from injury and conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, fallen arches and flat feet. Thanks!

    Strutz Soothing Foot Cream sounds amazing to me; I have serious feet problems and it sounds like this would be great with a good foot rub from my husband! Now I have to convince HIM of that. lol

  10. Billie R says:

    I would love to try the Soothing Cream. I work at a casino and I’m on my feet 8-10 hours a day. My feet ache! They are also dry and cracked. I’m constantly looking for good products to baby my feet.

    I would love these because I stand or walk around all day at work and am on 12 hour shifts and my hips and lower back always hurt. I like that they go right on my feet and not stuck in the shoe – we never wear shoes in our house!

  13. Richard T. says:

    I learned that The Strutz™ patent-pending, revolutionary product line is designed to provide immediate relief to those with sore feet, knee and back pain caused by poor arch support.

  14. Britt says:

    I learned that the products not only help with foot pain, they also alleviate knee, hip and lower back pain! I’d love to try!

  15. Jennifer V says:

    I would also like to try the Strutz Beach Walker. It would be nice to use them with flip flops. Thanks!

    I love that the beach walkers can be used with sandals. I so need that extra support (I broke my ankle last year)

  18. Janice Crespo says:

    The company was started after the founder was injured and found the tools for arch support lacking – especially barefoot – so he solved his own solution – cool 🙂

    Thought it was pretty cool how you could wear these without shoes. As a therapist, this might be a good one to try for those who need arch support and therefore have to wear shoes in the house. I would love to win some to try them out…maybe this could be an alternative to wearing shoes indoors for some of my patients..
