Magnetic insoles have not been proven more effective than regular insoles for relieving foot pain or keeping your feet from getting tired.
Insoles and OrthoticsRather than spending extra money on magnetic products, shop for the insoles or arch supports that give your feet the best relief. There are many varieties including those with foam and gel cushions.
For feet that are not relieved by over-the-counter insoles, a custom orthotic may be needed. These need to be prescribed by a physician or podiatrist and fitted by an expert. Medical insurance may cover the cost.

The Right ShoesGetting the right shoes can also make a large difference in preventing foot pain and fatigue. You should be fitted for your walking shoes at the best technical athletic shoe store in your area. See the Walking Shoe Guide for in depth coverage on getting the right shoes and finding the right store to fit you. Many walkers select shoes that are too stiff and too heavy and end up fighting their shoes with each step. See the Shoe Guide for tips on selecting the right shoes, which may be a style of running shoes.
