Q. How do I wear my STRUTZ® Pro?
A. The STRUTZ® Pro was designed to be worn with the fabric touching the bottom of your foot. It should be positioned mid-foot around the arch area. However, everybody is different and we all have particular areas of our feet that need more support than others so the STRUTZ® Pro can be rotated, or moved back and forth depending on what feels most comfortable to the wearer
Q. Do I need to break-in my STRUTZ® Pro?
A. The STRUTZ® Pro help by creating an arch for your foot by providing support and absorbing shock as you walk or run. We suggest a short break-in period such as wearing the STRUTZ® Pro one hour the first day, two hours the next day and so on until you can wear it all day long. This allows your foot to get accustomed to wearing the STRUTZ® Pro and causes the cushion pad to mold into a perfect arch support for you. Detailed instructions about how to use your STRUTZ® Pro are included with each purchase.
