Disney World was beckoning, but my feet and legs were aching just thinking about all the walking I would be doing. So I was on a search for the perfect shoe that would fit my needs. After visiting several stores I was beginning to get frustrated. That’s why I was excited to be offered the chance to review and share my honest opinions about the Therafit Shoe by Dr. Lisa Materson of The Doctor’s television show.
These shoes, from the moment they arrived, proved to be different than any shoe I had previously purchased. Included in the box was a bag to carry the shoes in, if needed, imprinted with the words “make your whole body happy.” Also in the box was a DVD telling the “Thereafit story.” Have you ever gotten a pair of shoes with these additions?
These shoes are made specifically for women and are accredited by the National Posture Institute.
Best of all these shoes let you decide how much impact resistance and cushioning you want. Located in the heel of the shoe is a wedge in which there are three removable adapters that regulate the amount shock absorbed by the shoe. Love this feature! Depending on the day, I have used 1, 2, 3.
I am thrilled with the way these shoes fit around my ankles. They wrap snugly but with a cushioned layer of mesh, so that no leather is rubbing against my skin. There is a removable insole with gel inserts at both the heel and ball of the foot. The sole has two different types of tread. The top half is designed for increased push-off traction and the bottom half is designed for impact reducing slide.
The Therafit shoe is protected by Aegis microbe shield. It provides protection against odor and staining caused by microorganisms. I was pleased to find that after walking around Disney for 7 days in 95 degree heat my shoes still smell as good as the day I pulled them out of the box!
I was thrilled to learn that once you have decided that Therafit is right for you and have pushed that buy button a $1.00 donation will be made to the charitable partner of your choice. The current partners are: Maternal Fetal Care International, Educate Tomorrow, Animal Recovery Mission, and Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Just think, your feet will not only be happy but you will be making a difference. What could be better?
