HappyFeet, Review & Giveaway


About Happy Feet Insoles:

Revolutionary 3-Way Action Design Provides Maximum Comfort.

Happy Feet's proprietary manufacturing process bonds a breathable, lightweight fabric to a high-strength bladder containing viscosity-controlled fluid to provide comfort and relief by distributing weight evenly, absorbing impact and massaging with every step. Happy Feet® Insoles fit in any shoe, including sandals, and are recommended by people everywhere to treat foot pain.
As someone who spent from 16 to 31 working in restaurants doing everything from waiting tables to tending bar to hostessing to being a general manager, I know foot and leg pain. Especially when I was managing, because then I was spending 10 to 12 hours a day on my feet in dress shoes. There were days when I came home and could barely walk. While I am not doing that anymore, I still spend a good deal of the day on my feet and they hurt. All those years of abuse have taken a toll on my legs and feet.

I have tried just about every insole out there looking for some relief and never really found one that helped. Many of those "gel" ones are too thick and once you put them in a womans dress shoe, your foot doesn't fit anymore. Or the ones you buy and have to "trim" to the correct size like a 1st graders art project well...c'mon we all know they never fit right! Half the time you accidently trim them too much so the soles slide all over your shoe driving you crazy all day.

I received my Happy Feet  and I wasn't too impressed when I looked at them. I thought "how can something so thin possibly help my feet, legs and back?" I went ahead and put them in my shoes anyways. I ordered them in a size 7.5 and they slid right into my shoes perfectly, no trimming necessary.When I put my shoes on the first thing I noticed was that they didn't raise me up so that my shoe fit funny. Then I walked out the door for work and actually stopped and looked down at my feet I was so amazed. The only way I can think to describe it is that it's like walking on super strong bubble wrap that doesn't pop. 

I actually took my shoe off and pulled out the insole to look at it again thinking I put it in wrong or something! Nope, it's just the pharmaceutical grade glycerin filling massaging my feet everytime I take a step!


Of course the breathable moisture management, where the fabric wicks moisture away to keep your feet dry is great. As is the Anti-Microbial Treatment which resists odor & mildew. You can also hand wash or machine wash with soap and water and air dry to keep them clean and fresh. 

I can honestly say I LOVE these insoles and will be purchasing a pair for my husband who is still in the restaurant business and has constant foot pain and back pain. I personally found myself unconciously sort of rocking my feet a little when standing still, just so I could feel that "massaging" action on my feet!

BUY IT: Did I mention that HappyFeet insoles are 100% made in the USA and that they come with a one year warranty? You can purchase a pair for $39.95 at www.happyfeet.net or by calling 1-800-462-8677.


WIN IT: One of my readers is going to get to try their very own pair of HappyFeet insoles! (my husband is extremely jealous of you!)
