Serena Ferrick

The BEST NEWS is that before I visited Foot Solutions I had been having intermittent treatment to help with back and shoulder pain. Now, because the Customised Arch Supports have aligned by body, taking stress off these areas, my back and shoulder pain is entirely gone!! Fantastic!

The difference was unbelievable! It took about two days to get used to the supports, but after that I was flying it. We were able to go on our walks around Kerry. I can walk into work in Cork city every morning and spend all day on my feet without any problems. When we go for a walk now my friend says she can barely keep up with me! Read More

Carmel Mythen visited Foot Solutions in Stillorgan Co. Dublin after a few years suffering hip pain and sciatica. ‘I had tried over-the-counter insoles from other shops, but they weren’t really having any effect.

Dr. Padraig Kelly

Newly qualifed as a junior doctor, Padraig Kelly was eagerly looking forward to his first placement in July 2013. One thing he didn’t anticipate was the strain the new job would put on his feet. ‘While my work was and remains very intense, I was not prepared for the aching feet and sudden back pain that I began experiencing. I put the discomfort down to the newness of the job. I persisted on, thinking things would improve. until eventually I decided I would have to take serious action.’ Read More

Mícheál O’Súilleabháin

It isn’t just that the shoes and supports got rid of the pain completely. I am also delighted with the impact that they have had on my life. Limping around the place can get you down, it drains the life out of you. Since I went to Foot Solutions and tackled my pain, I find I have more energy. I think any kind of chronic pain can make you irritable and depletes your concentration. With that pain removed, it frees me up from a creative point of view. Read More

Alice Campbell

Alice originally visited Foot Solutions three years ago, having experienced issues with arthritis in her knees. ‘I was having real problems with my knees, so bad that there was talk of having them replaced. I had already had arch supports fitted elsewhere, when someone suggested I try Foot Solutions for shoes. I’ve bought three pairs of shoes there since – I really like them, they have the thick soles that I need.’ Read More

Once in a while, customer service is so excellent that you have to write a letter. So here goes! I work as a professional commercial photographer, photographing for businesses and colleges all over Devon & Cornwall which requires very good mobility and lots of activity. I have had problems with my feet for a number of years, I believe “Pronated Arches” is the technical term, and this has also been linked to problems I have had with my lower back and knees.
