noisy orthoticPosted by susan o on 7/15/04 at 06:51 (155490)
Have recently begun wearing hard plastic type orthotics. The things seem to be helping the fasciitis. However, the noise is really getting on my nerves. The stupid things make a scrunching noise with every step I take. It seems to be from the edge of the orthotics rubbing the edge of the shoes. I've been shopping for shoes lately. There seems to be noise with virtually every pair I've tried on. Anyone have any suggestions? It's driving me nuts!

Susan, hard orthotics do tend to be noisy. Try a bit of talcum powder: it may do the trick.

Talc or baby powder rubbed on the bottom works. Just this morning I put on my new Brooks with my orthotics and there was the squeek squeek squeek. I rubbed hand lotion on the bottom and it went right away. A cool little trick of the trade.

Baby powder seems to be the industry standard, If it still doesnt work let us know what types of shoes you are trying on with these orthotics.
