Hi I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and I'm not sure which type of insole I need, the in my feet is just behind my toes and pain in the ball of my foot is severe and I also can get blister bubble as friction causes immense heat, I'm looking for something that I can use in sandals gives pain relief with no friction! Can you help?

I'm getting terrible pain in my feet after standing for a while especially in the metatarsal area and also stinging in the tips of my middle toes. What could be the cause of this. Regards A walters

Hi Anthony,

If you are suffering from chronic foot pain, we would have to recommend that you see a specialist for a full and accurate diagnosis of your condition.

From your symptoms, however, it sounds as though you may be suffering from Morton's Neuroma. This is a condition that occurs when a nerve between your feet becomes inflamed.

Once again, I must stress that I am not medically trained and that it is important that you consult a medical professional. To find out more about Morton's Neuroma, please see our guide in the knowledge centre.

Best wishes,

Hi. I have been diagnosed with hallux rigidus, and have been given a pair of Slimflex Simple insoles. Having looked through your site, it would seem that a more specialist pair such as the RSL Steeper hallux rigidus insoles would be a far better choice. I can't really see how the Slimflex Simple would even help. What would you recommend?

Hi Beverley,

Thanks for getting into contact with us. I would recommend, rather than another Shoe Insoles, that you take a look at our selection of creams and gels for cracked heels (available here: These should help to protect and repair the damaged skin.

I hope that this helps!

Best wishes,

No matter what shoes I wear I get a pain on the ball of my foot. My chiropodist suggests getting insoles as the shoes I am wearing (Nike trainers) have practically no padding in their soles. I have bought insoles but after trimming them to size I couldn't get my foot into the shoe. I'm an elderly male {84) with a UK size 9. Suggestions please.
