Do your feet hurt? Mine sure do. I don’t talk about this a lot, but I have plantar fasciitis. In a nutshell, it’s an inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes and guys, it HURTS. When people ask me what it feels like, this is my standard answer: Imagine a pebble inside the heel of your foot and then step down really hard on it. Plantar fasciitis is legit and while it simmers down sometimes, when I have flare ups, I can barely walk.
And I do NOT have time for this nonsense. Thankfully I discovered Wiivv custom fit insoles and sandals! I got a pair of sandals and insoles that were made just for me. Wiivvs provide the natural arch support your feet were designed to have. Their custom insoles distribute pressure and loading across the entire foot, reduce ankle rotation and keep you aligned from the ground up.
How it works:
Digital mapping: Once you submit photos through the award-winning Wiivv app, we leverage the latest in computer vision and deep learning technologies to digitally map each of your completely unique feet to over 200 points.
Biomechanic enhancements: Our biomechanic filters identify foot pathologies like flat feet, and automatically enhance your custom arch to offer the support you need.
2D to 3D: We convert your unique foot data into 3D-printable files in seconds. Each order is quality checked by a biomechanic expert to ensure you’ll get the best product possible.
Precision 3D printing: Your arches are 3D printed using the highest quality nylon material, offering flexibility to allow a healthy range of motion, while supporting your unique arches.
On-demand production: All Wiivv products are 3D printed on-demand in our factory in San Diego, and delivered to your doorstep in under 10 days. That means little inventory and less waste.
Wiivv Insoles are flexible enough to allow motion in your ankle and foot which capitalizes on your body’s amazing ability to absorb shock and adapt to changes in surfaces. While flexibility is important, we use targeted rigidness in our shell to support your arch where it needs it to reduce the forces acting on foot and ankle with every step.
Features of Wiivvs Insoles:
Deep Heel Cup: Absorb shock as you pound the pavement or hit the trails.
Custom Fit 3D Printed Arches: Designed to support your unique arches, so you can move your best all day.
Features of their Sandals:
Adjustable Interchangeable Straps: From slipping and flopping to adjustable fit and interchangeable style.
Custom Placed Toe Thong: From blisters and pain to an ultra soft toe thong, custom placed between your toes.
To recap: Use the Wiivv app to take photos of your feet in minutes. They digitally map your feet to 200 points to create your custom Wiivv Insoles. Then they ship them for free. If you try your Wiivvs for 30 days and don’t love them they’ll refund you. How easy is that?
I got both my insoles and sandals before I set out to Universal Studios/Disney a few weeks ago, so of course I packed them. My plantar fasciitis has been acting up for most of the summer, so I was totally dreading all the walking I was going to be doing at the parks. I actually went to get a cortisone shot in my foot a few days before I left, but for some reason it didn’t work and I was in major pain going into my trip.
The sandals were the first ones I tried and I have to admit that they took some getting used to. The high arch was a bit awkward at first, but once I started walking I got used to them pretty fast. And they actually did help! I wasn’t sure if they were actually going to work, but they did. I put the insoles inside my sneakers and they worked just as well (although that’s not really a shocker since they used the same mold).
I am really happy with both my new sandals and insoles. I’m not saying my foot doesn’t hurt anymore, but the custom footwear from wiivvs really do make it more comfortable to walk.
If your feet hurt, invest in a new pair of Wiivvs because they want help you, too!
