I've had orthotics for about 4-5 years now. I had really bad foot pain because I have flat feet. I can't do much walking without them now. If I walk around the house barefoot for too long, I start to feel pain in my back and knees. I also have back problems; I had a diskectomy (L4/L5) three years ago, so I am very careful about my feet! If my feet are uncomfortable, or my hip/leg alignment isn't right, it will hurt my back. Like I posted below, I buy Naot sandals and clogs, and I absolutely LOVE them. They can be pricey, but they have a removeable insert that I can replace my orthotic with and they last forever. Their sandals are cute, too! Right now I have three pairs of Naot sandals and two pairs of Naot clogs (for fall/winter). I have one pair of orthotics I wear with sandals and another pair that I wear with my clogs and tennis shoes.

It helps with the pain, so it's definitely worth it!
