If you think you need orthotics, you ought to talk with an expert about it. You may, or may not, have a leg length inequality that should be accomodated. I suggest that you speak to a doctor about it. Specifically a podiatrist (foot specialist) or a chiropractor (posture specialist). Both of these professions require advanced doctoral degrees (eg: a B.A., and additionally, a four year doctoral degree). -Dr. Tom Morison, chiropractor

Tom, thanks for your suggestion. Actually I don't see any need for orthotics per se, I'm primarily more interested know about the cushioning and the shock absorpant feature of the product. I'm wondering if you have any opinion about these Phase 4 thing?

I have never tested that particular orthotic, but I'd suggest you simply get a pair of good shoes. The best shoes I am aware of for comfort and foot health (although not looks) are Birkenstock shoes and Dansko stapled clogs. I have personal experience with both brands and they are exceptional. I wear Dansko's all day at work. I wish they were better looking, but they are the only shoe I can stand in all day (eight to ten hours) without any foot pain.
