I have to say that, when I ordered my first pair of Strutz, I really did not expect them to work. I'm on my feet a lot and have had severe foot pain for years. I also bought a pair for my husband fully expecting to have to return them. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with my Strutz! My severe heel pain is amazingly relieved when I put them on! I wear them constantly now and have ordered another two pair for myself and my best friend who has foot and knee pain. My skeptic husband even says they help him which is a miracle! I will never be without them again! Denise S., Newberg, OR
FINALLY SOMETHING WE CAN USE.
I've tried almost everything. I have high instep/arches and there were times when my arches would hurt, felt like there was no support. I tried Dr Scholl's inner soles/arch relief, etc - they worked temporary. Saw and said what have I to lose? Best thing I bought for my feet. I do a lot of walking and standing during the day & can use the support. Now my feet feel good - not as tired as they used to be. Thanks to the person/people who thought of this and to the company who invested. My arches thank you. Evon S., Brooklyn, NY
This is a long-overdue letter as a result of procrastinating since September, 2011. That’s the day I ordered Strutz, with considerable skepticism, in response to the urging of a friend who thought the product might be helpful to me.
I am 88 years old, and have endured years of foot problems, ranging from substantial discomfort to debilitating pain. I have tried many types of shoes, ranging from very expensive to standard brands and makes ... including wingtips, loafers, sneakers, boat shoes, walking shoes, boots, diabetic shoes, ad infinitum. At considerable expense, I have sought relief from orthopedists, physicians, pain specialists, a major university medical center, a hospital podiatry clinic, a sports medicine facility, and even a chiropractor. I have tried countless treatments including everything from cortisone injections to prescription pain pills, U.S. custom-made orthotics, German imports, and various over-the-counter devices ... and seemingly about every other potential source of relief this side of proverbial “snake oil” or an African witchdoctor.
My problem had become so extreme that walking on carpets, even without shoes, in my home was painful and difficult. I presume you can understand my willingness to try Strutz despite a high degree of skepticism.
Trying Strutz turned out to be a decision that has revolutionized my life! And it did so almost overnight! The instructions said wear them an hour or two the first day and gradually increase the time in following days. To the contrary, I put them on as soon as I opened the package ... and did not take them off until I went to bed that first night. The effect was so immediate, so dramatic, and the relief so astounding that I not only wore them all the next day, but continued to wear them every day without interruption. I did not have to adjust to them. They gave me fast relief beyond my greatest hope or expectation!
Although I have travelled extensively “the world over,” I had concluded those days were gone forever. That is no longer the case. Now I can once again walk in the park, walk in the neighborhood, go shopping even in large stores, and walk wherever I desire. Strutz has brought me the pleasure of doing things that I never expected to be able to do again ... including the sheer joy of just being able to walk without pain.
Obviously, I have no way of knowing if someone else will get equally good results. Nevertheless, for anyone with a “foot problem” ... even if not as acute as mine ... I highly recommend trying Strutz as possibly the most effective and economical solution they will find anywhere.
I have never been a “letter-to-the-editor” type guy by avocation or inclination. However, despite that fact and my lengthy procrastination, I have felt a moral obligation to relate this experience on the chance it will open a door to Strutz bringing as much relief to someone else as the product has brought me. Sincerely, Jack N. H., Midlothian, VA
I have been a Strutz wearer for some time now and have recommended them to numerous people with foot problems like my own. They truly have been a blessing to my feet! Your product is amazing and I cannot imagine life without it! I am also very excited to learn that I will be able to buy my Strutz in retail outlets coming soon. The rest of the world must have finally found out what I have known for some time. --Peter B., South Fort Meyers, FL
Hello: I placed an order for my sister whose feet are always bothering her because she has flat feet. Well, she just received them and she loves them. Her feet didn’t hurt at all today. I just wanted to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my sister's feet. Diane L. Chicago, IL.
Thank you, thank you! My husband suffers from Peripheral Neuropathy. Though medication is a necessity, it alone is not a magic bullet. After years of spending thousands of dollars on expensive shoes and custom orthotics--relief finally came to his aching feet in the form of STRUTZ SOLE ANGEL! Continued success with this life altering product!--Lucille I., College Point, NY
P.S. Those uncomfortable orthotics are now mulch.
I have several athletes that have suffered from low leg pain due to weak arches. I received a sample of your Sole Angel Support, and have tried it out on a couple of athletes. It is the only thing that I have found that worked. I have tried taping them, commercial arch supports, and more. Your product is the only thing that has worked. --Carl A., ATC, Head Athletic Trainer, Shreveport, LA
I just put them (Sole Angel) on a couple of guys over the weekend and they seem to really like them. The one guy with a heel contusion that I have done everything I can think of with no success said it felt better within the day. -- Jennifer B. MA (Athletic Trainer)
These (Sole Angels) REALLY work!! What a pleasant surprise. Now I can walk. I had to order more so I could have extra pairs. --Thanks! Lynn C. (Registered Nurse) Wichita, KS
The Sole Angels are working great. After wearing them a week, I went to the chiropractor for a maintenance adjustment. He said (without knowing I had been wearing the Sole Angels), that I needed the least amount of adjusting since I had been his patient. That's great! --Charles T., Hoover, AL
I have been very pleased with the Sole Angel and Beachwalker. My feet are rarely without them. --Becky L. Memphis, NY
"After a bad fall at work and an injured foot (torn ligament) I was in constant pain-limping and constantly not so happy. I spent months in rehab-an injection at the injury site; and all to no relief. I'm VERY happy to say that while I'm wearing your product it takes a great deal of the pressure and thus the pain off my heal. Thank you, a waitress needz two good wheelz!" — Barb T. Jim Thorpe, PA
"Hi, I purchased your product Sole Angel and I am really happy with them. I don't want to go into my "story/injuries", but with a recent tendon dysfunction diagnosis- having them allows me to wear some kinds of open shoes. Since this looks like a injury I will have to manage for the rest of my life, I am really appreciative I found your product." — Brenda M., NY, NY
I have had a chance to really use the Sole Angel and I wanted to offer a review. I used the product after my weekly long runs as a form of compression recovery to see if it would speed up the process. After initially putting them on they felt a little odd, which is to be expected with something new, but I quickly realized the benefit of wearing them. The arch support along with the compression around the whole foot felt very soothing and I shortly forgot I was wearing them. I think it sped up the recovery process and by the next day my feet felt fantastic. After long, hard runs I would whole heartedly recommend this product to my friends. The bad news is that I have lost control of the Sole Angels®. My wife is also a runner and suffers from plantar fasciitis in one of her feet. After trying these on the relief was so great that she has laid claim to them and I have not seen them since! Thanks for letting me try them out.
Just wanted to share my story with you and let you know how happy I am with your product. I am a pretty active person. I run 3 or 4 times a week, workout and ride reining horses competitively. So I wear western boots that slip on my heel. I have been having problems with plantar fasciitis on and off for the past 1.5 years. The pain had gotten so bad that I actually gave up running. I also had a pain in my left hip. If you ever suffered from plantar fasciitis you know that feeling when you stand up and your feet feel like they are 100+ years old. I finally saw a podiatrist in Tampa that said the pain in my hip was actually caused by the way I was running/walking to compensate for the pain in my foot. Fortunately my doctor believes in starting with the least invasive means and asked me to try STRUTZ® Sole Angels®. When he told me that he thought I would be able to run again, I have to admit that I didn't really believe him, but I tried the Sole Angels anyway. What a difference they have made in my life! Within just a few days the pain began to diminish. After two weeks the pain was completely gone. Even after riding all day, I can take off my boots and my feet are pain free! I recently started running again and I couldn't be happier. I am a huge fan of STRUTZ Sole Angels. Thank you Dr. Katz and thank you Paul Mazzanobile and the founders of STRUTZ for a great product. I ride with a couple friends who also suffer from plantar fasciitis. I ordered a pair for them.Sincerely, Marcy W., Brooksville, FL
Wanted to thank you guys for creating this great product. I met Steven at the Ocean Drive Marathon this past March and we discussed my situation. I tried on a pair of your Sole Angels and haven't looked back ever since. This technology has changed my life! I am an active athlete who plays volleyball, basketball, football, weight training, etc. and in recent years noticed a decline in my performances in these areas. I was suffering from chronic knee, foot, and lower back pain. It really started to concern me when I found it hard to keep up with my daughter and I was only 34 years of age. I tried everything from foot wraps to inserts and had very little success. To sum it up, Sole Angels must be God sent. I am performing all the above as if I was in my mid 20's again! I just ordered a replacement pair and may try your beach ones' for outdoor volleyball if you recommend them for that type of outdoor bare foot activity. Thank you again for this awesome product! -- Kenny P. Egg Harbor Twp, N.J.
Thank you to STRUTZ® for the Sole Angels®. Those things really rock! AND work! Traci C., Los Angeles, CA.
Just received my STRUTZ® Sole Angels® in the mail and threw them on immediately. So comfy! Thanks lovemystrutz J. Mirocha, E. Moline, IL
"I have come across a product that I love. I actually wear it all the time, and my feet are unbelievably comfortable. STRUTZ® sole angel® is an innovative arch support that can be worn with any shoe. You can even wear them barefoot. I've worn them in dress shoes, sandals and even in my ballet slippers. They have made a huge difference in allowing me to comfortably be on my feet for long periods of time.
"It's hard to find the words to truly express just how grateful I am for STRUTZ™. After two weeks in a wheelchair, six weeks on crutches and limping everyday thereafter, I have finally found the answer to my plantar fascia problems and it's called STRUTZ®! As an Ironman Triathlete, I do quite a number on my body while training. After years of constant abuse, my foot finally got back at me by tearing the plantar fascia tissue on my left foot.

"I recently ordered a pair of Sole Angel's from your website. I received them last week and have been very pleased with the way my feet feel. I have been to my podiatrist several times over the past two years and haven't been able to reduce the pain in my feet until now. I have recommended your product to several co-workers." — Allen B., Liverpool, NY
I have been an Infantry soldier for 14 years and this will be the second pair of these that I have ordered. The first pair has disintegrated as I use them for everything. I preach about these to everyone that I know... call that "free promotion!" Thanks again for making long days on my feet better... I appreciate it!!!! — Jason A., Cortland, NY
My feet have been in pain for many years. I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and achillis tendonitis. The day I was diagnosed they gave me an appointment to come back in 8 weeks to start my cortisone shots for inflammation. I received my Strutz in the mail that same week and have been wearing them faithfully. Since then, my feet feel AMAZING. I never had to go back for my 8 week appt. I've dodged those awful cortisone shots because of this outstanding product!! I've encouraged family and friends to purchase this wonderful product. I REALLY can say I LOVE MY STRUTZ !! — Susan F., Syracuse, NY
"I bought a pair of Sole Angels and I absolutely love them. I wear them every day with my wedge sandals and since I wear pants you can't see them. "
"A little over a week ago, I called to say that the company might benefit from marketing in my area, as we have a good deal of manufacturing here. Much to my surprise, I found out that I was actually speaking to the co- founder of the company, Steve Llorens, who suggested that I send an email to share my story. I heard about the Love My Strutz product line while out of town visiting in Syracuse, NY, when the cute singing kangaroo commercial caught my attention.... and I'm so glad I listened!
"I just wanted you to know how much I love your product. I began using the sole angel right after an injury, and the relief was immediate and my plantars faciaitis was quickly under control.
"I met Steve Llorens by happenstance, tried his arch support product and have been wearing strutz for the last 3 months. It is great to find a product that is value added,ie it actually works." - Robert M., Jersey City, NJ
