Kendall Gelthotics Review and Giveaway

Foot pain is a serious issue. Not only is it painful, but it can cause permanent damage to your feet. It can be almost excruciating if you work a job where you're on your feet for many hours a day too. You should make sure that you're taking care of your feet as best as possible by wearing comfortable shoes and inserts if necessary.


Kendall Gelthotics were developed by Michael Kendall, a Biomechanical Engineer specializing in orthotic design. The Kendall GelThotic offers support for issues of plantar fasciitis, neuromas, problems of the forefoot, and general heel pain.

When I wear boots with a heel or high heels for a long period of time my feet really hurt. I think it's because I rarely wear them, I prefer flat shoes. I've had my fair share of foot pain from walking long distances, or just being on my feet for long periods of time. Not only are these gelthotics great for reducing foot pain, but they reduce lower back and knee pain too!



The essence of support:

Walk away from the pain of plantar fasciitis, adding comfort, support and relief no matter what you are doing.

GelThotics® SupportXGel Inserts combine optimal therapeutic support and shock absorption with performance enhancement to relieve and prevent foot pain.

The unique cobra-shaped design fits under the existing insole and into the limited space of the shoe without changing the fit.

This minimal design in combination with revolutionary, SupportXGel ensures the greatest degree of support available without a prescription.


I was sent a pair of gelthotics for review. I was excited to be able to review them, because I was hoping it would give me the chance to wear heels again with much less agony. The gelthotic was very easy to put into my shoe and I had no problems with them. They securely stick to the the inside of your shoe. The gelthotics has a curved shape which easily fits into the bed of any shoe. I put them to the test last night when I had to wear heels to an event. I knew I was going to be on my feet for a while and I carried flats in my bag just in case. Once you walk with the gelthotics in your shoes you definitely notice them. It's not uncomfortable at all but you do realize there's something in your shoe. It has a gel-like feel which provides great support to your foot and arch. The gelthotics did not come loose or slip when I walked either.

I was able to wear the heels all night with no problem! At the end of the night when my feet should have been screaming in pain, there was a very minimal amount of pain. I was very impressed and now I can bring new life into my shoes that I rarely wore because of foot pain. These gelthotics would make a perfect gift for anyone who has foot pain or who is on their feet for their job a lot. They will thank you for making their life more comfortable!

  1. I have heel spurs and plantar fasciitis. That combined with DVT in my left leg and having to wear a compression stocking can cause my feet and legs to have a lot of pain.

  2. I would love to have this. I have a stone bruise on my heal. It has been killing me for almost a year now. I am too the point of not even wanting a new pair of shoes because it doesn't seem to help. I am praying to find a way to help the pain soon. Thanks for the chance to win and try this!

  31. I've been somewhat lucky when it comestofoot pain until recently. Our new building at work has all cement floors, and I stand for hours. I really notice the pain when I get off work, but worse is first thing in the morning when I swing out of bed and stand up...OUCH!

  41. This would be for my husband- In 2009 we found out he had a tumor in his right heel. He underwent multiple surgeries in 2010. An avid walker he has trouble being on his feet all day & he is a teacher- who has to be! He also has plantar fasciitis from being in a cast for so long.
    Thanks for this giveaway he sure could use it!

I'd love to get these for him to hopefully help him feel more aligned all day long (and I wouldn't have to hear him complain either! lol)!

  140. I've had flat feet (fallen arches) my entire life. To make it worse, I'm a jogger. I had custom orthotics about 25 years ago but then i changed jobs and didn't have the strain. Now that I'm older, I'm really feeling the pain even from regular mobility. I'd love this product.

  146. Sometimes, when I walk, my plantar fascia hurts! Also, when I run or walk a long distance, my feet feel funky and achy.
