Frequently Asked Questions
It could take as long as 2-3 weeks to adjust to your Walkfit® Platinum. If you choose to start out on LOW or MED inserts, after a few weeks, you may want to try MED or HIGH to find your ideal fit. Remember, if after a few days the new inserts are not comfortable, go back to MED or LOW for greater comfort. The important thing is to choose the level that feels best to you.
Walkfit® Platinum will fit comfortably in most shoes, with the exception of tight-fitting shoes. If you experience this difficulty, try your orthotics with a pair of looser-fitting shoes.

If you are a diabetic, suffer from chronic foot pain, persistent joint problems, have numbness in your feet or circulation problems, check with your physician before wearing Walkfit® Platinum. Approval from your doctor is of great importance. If you suffer from one of the above conditions and a physician's approval cannot be obtained, please return your Walkfit® Platinum for a refund.
Some shoes and sneakers come with built-in arch supports and extra padding. Walkfit® Platinum replace these built-in arch supports. To receive the proper result from Walkfit® Platinum, remove the built-in supports and all extra padding. Leaving in arch supports and padding may cause significant discomfort when wearing those shoes.
Walkfit® Platinum come with three inserts: LOW, MED and HIGH. The height of the inserts is written on the back of each. The LOW inserts are already inserted for you. To switch to another pair of inserts, simply bend back the top of your orthotics and lift out the inserts. Place the new inserts in position and press down all over to ensure that they are securely in place. Try out each level of inserts to see which one feels most comfortable initially. If MED or HIGH seems most comfortable, choose MED or HIGH.
Orthotics work by changing the position of your feet. It may take some time before you are comfortable wearing them all day. To begin, wear the orthotics 1 hour the first day, 2 hours the second and so on, until you can wear them comfortably all day long. If you feel discomfort, remove them from your shoes. Begin wearing them the next day without increasing the time they are worn. Then continue to increase usage until they are comfortable. If you feel pain when wearing Walkfit® Platinum, discontinue use and consult with your physician.
