On your feet without proper support can be painful. But, a new As Seen on TV product guarantees to change that. It's called Strutz Sole Angels, the makers call it the human shock absorber that helps eliminate foot pain. The instructions say if you slip on Struts they'll help with better balance, control and body alignment, and they can be worn with anything.
Strutz is so versatile you'll wear them in every shoe you own, even barefoot. We stepped into Mobile Shoe Hospital to get in line with owner Brian Dodge to find out if Strutz really hugs your feet, providing welcome support.
"Some people want that arch support you know," says owner of Mobile Shoe Hospital, Brian Dodge.
Brian actually wears an arch support device in his shoes. "Anytime you use one, it's usually pretty comfortable," says Dodge.
He took off his shoes and socks then pulled the Strutz over his foot and off he went one foot in front of the other. "Yea, it hugs your foot, it fits good, and doesn't slide around," says Dodge. Next up, he wanted to test the claim that you can wear the Strutz with any shoe, so he put his socks over it and slid on his boots. "It hasn't slipped on my foot, except when I was trying to put my sock on, seems like it wanted to roll up and I had to straighten it out," says Dodge. Then, when he started taking steps, here's what he felt. "It just kind of makes you feel off balance, like you're on a ball which you are. I can't walk normal," says Dodge.
What about that support and pain relief? "To me it's almost painful. It feels like you're standing on a rubber ball," says Dodge.
In your opinion is this a deal or a dud? " A dud," says Dodge.
