Jul 13th 2009 5:17PM if you don't fit into a size 18 how the heck are you getting up and down the aisles so often, turning around effortlessly to help a weary traveler, or fitting into one of those tiny jumper seats anyway? I've certainly never seen one, but I sure don't want a size 22's portly rear ramming into me every time she goes by with a drink cart and wants to hand said beverage to the middle seat across from me.
Jul 13th 2009 5:17PM sure sounds like marketing spin from someone trying to sell a "new" "modern" or "updated" piggy bank.
Jul 13th 2009 5:11PM you're definitely buying the wrong kind. I have 3 different kinds of inserts, all that were sold at a different price point and got them for a slightly different purpose or shoe
the best kind of ones to get are the orthotic, which are about 2/3 the length of your shoe. however, I do recognize that this can make some shoes too snug for some people, but they worked great on my dress shoes since they had absolutely no cushioning and already a bit of "float".
most of the Dr. Scholl's gels, while OK, are nothing but a cheap "comfort" insole, which provide almost no support and just a bit of relief. mine were the athletic style, I bought for extra comfort in my new baseball cleats when they were causing a lot of pain from heavy impact. I agree they slip just a bit, but you can probably solve it with strategically placed double-sided tape. but if they weren't trimmed too small they shouldn't be slipping that much.
on the other hand, I've heard pretty good thing about the Impact Gel full length inserts (which had Billy Mays as a pitchman, RIP)
and if you're like me and the original insole of your work (or dress) shoes starts to completely break down, you have no other choice than to take them out and replace them with something (usually full-length) that's a rough equivalent or better. it doesn't matter how comfortable those shoes were to begin with, once they start to go, you have to get that support back or you're asking for a world of hurt. an adequate replacement can be had for as little as $3 and in my experience these work just as good as the "gellin" kind.

Dec 8th 2008 5:52PM if you have to ask, you can't afford it (I'm guessing $250-300 a night as a conservative guess!)
Dec 8th 2008 5:28PM OK maybe they imported it from China... just saying
