Have you tried them? What's your opinion?

I prefer Tide to Fab.

A few people here have tried them..the response was pretty lukwarm. They are expensive (imnsho) for what you get.

You are funny Dr. Ed.

I prefer Tide too...but my 8 year old is allergic to it. The last time I used it he broke out in welts...I had to give him benadryl. I felt like the worst mom in the world. But his white's were really white - and his colors bright!

Seeing as though my wife and I have a three month old...we tend to lean toward Tide Free. good stuff.

JoAnn...this is not meant to take away from your question at all....we like to cut up from time to time here. :-)

BTW...I have never heard of Fab shoes.

I'm sorry I didn't state my question clearer. FABS are a arch band with support. You can read about them at http://www.fabs.com I have already ordered them and hoping they will do some good. I think you can see a picture of them at http://www.apexfoot.com

FABS are not shoes Richard - they are arch supports.

JoAnn - try doing a search on this site under Fabs - you will get back some posts with feedback. Like I said - I think the response was so-so.

Scott has a reference to FABS on his product board. Did a search myself - and it appears there was the odd good comment, some so-so. I haven't heard from any regulars here that this item really helped them. I still think they're expensive for what you appear to get (Have not forked over the dough myself). Just my 2cents. Would be very interested in hearing from some regulars who have tried them.

John H - the search brought up a message where you offerred Dr R to try them - did you ever get a pair?

They look like a potentially helpful product. Some individuals may be sensitive to the band going over the top of the foot. Definitely worth a try.
