I was told to get a pair of these for arthritis around my big toe and shooting, electrical shocks between the big toe and second toe. Metal plates that prevented my foot from bending sounded horribly uncomfortable and unappealing, but after months of pain, I wasn't going to say no. Shockingly (to me, at least), they work. The pain isn't totally gone but it's much improved. And the plates aren't as uncomfortable as I'd expected. You definitely need a pad to wear over them, and despite being very thin, you may need to buy new shoes. (because they don't bend, if your shoes don't have give, you can't get them in.) But it's worth it. I may get a second pair, despite the cost, so I don't have to switch them out of shoes every single day. Anyway, huge thumbs up!
