They're ok: Zapz orthotics are off the shelf insoles that can be heated and molded when stepped on. The problem is this molds them in an unstable position when you stand. I feel that this is non better than other otc insoles such as powersteps, spenco, or superfeet.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
