• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Are there good brands for inserts that you guys are using if you need to fill se volume in a shoe? I have a pair that feels a bit large and want to see if it would help.

Pedeg, if I am spelling it correctly, is a good brand. I have my cobbler build mine. But he has a special machine to measure and then he makes the inserts. Seems to always work.

Agree on the Pedeg inserts, Saphir makes some as well. I have custom orthotics from a podiatrist, and they work (sometimes too well) at taking up volume.

Great job by @ae_ashley and kennard.

I got distracted by a nice looking saddle that appeared in the video at the opening credits: 0:06 mark.
Is that an AE shoe? If so, sign me up!
My wife's shoes..... She was demonstrating "the Brannock device" to our granddaughter

@lcdx22 I have fiddled with making my own inserts with pieces of leather. There’s no one perfect fix for every shoe as each shoe presents its own challenges. The Superfeet Deluxe/Everyday 3/4 insert has been good for me in roomier boots and shoes, and the Superfeet Slim works for dress shoes. The 3/4 style helps fill in volume over the arch while letting my toes have ample room. Many times I will use a foam insert from one of my many athletic shoes, they are unstructured and work well in a variety of footwear as long as they are the correct size. Trim to fit if need be. “Sole” makes some great inserts for arch support that I use when the foot pain flares up. Also, I hate those bulky gel inserts.

It's amazing... I brought Strands and Coopers on this Seattle trip. The Strands are more comfortable for the long walks. Yes, they are much harder with each step and not as wide to support a thin heel, but thee added stiffness holds up better for 5-mile walks than the Cooper sneakers--as they would more than any sneaker I think. I wouldn't recommend them for running, but walking on pavement is actually better on my feet with Strands than sneakers.

The snowpocalypse never came. We got a few inches, so a good excuse for boots.

Longbranches.
