>Running 101>Orthotics - will they help
"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009

thankyou for the response, dumb question, but do i have to take out the current inner sole and replace it with the orthotics or leave it in also?

I'm having a hard time finding the narrow women's version.
Can you trim it through the toes to make it fit your shoes?

I'm also on a quest to purchase orthotics..rigid ones per my PT! I tried on a pair of 3/4 length and ran around a little. Just wondering...does anyone use that length? It seems the ridge in front would become annoying if you were running long distances...possibly even irritating your foot? I tried the full length, but it was generic and I'm having a hard time finding the narrow women's version. Maybe once you start using it and "settle into" the orthotic, you don't even notice where it ends on the front of your foot...?
