I participated in Mom Blog Tour Natural Products Expo West (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received SelectFlex orthotics to facilitate my review and post on Exercise Without Foot Pain, but my opinions and creative content are my own. #treatyourfeet AD
There are so many reasons that I exercise almost daily and that I choose CrossFit as my sport. I feel better, I look better and the exercise and accomplishment only enhances my life. It is the one time during the day that I can focus on me. Not work. Not my schedule. Not the kids. But me. But the sport does not come without aches and pains of working hard. I wear them as a sort of pride. But when those pains get in the way of my workout, I go looking for products that can help me prevent them to begin with. Just as I use grips to keep my hands from tearing on the bars and gloves to keep the barbells from tearing up my thumbs, I now use SelectFlex® and their iFlex Technology™ to adjust away foot pain that comes from the demanding sport! I have been using them for about a month now and am happy to report that I can exercise without foot pain as a result!
What are they?
I was introduced to SelectFlex® as part of the Mom Blog Tour that attended the Natural Products Expo West. I wish I had had them at the beginning of the conference because, after all of that walking I understood the importance of orthopedic care!
SelectFlex® is the world’s only instantly adjustable orthotic. It has 3 adjustment levels of Flexural Arch Support and is offered in a variety of sizes. With 75% of us experiencing foot pain at some point in our lives but none of us having the same feet, adjustable orthotics are just a necessity we all need to be aware of!
Whether you have a high arch, as 20% of American’s do, or flat feet, like 25% of American’s do, or have heel pain, SelectFlex® adjustable inserts and their iFlex Technology™ can help. After all, there is a lot riding on our feet and we want them to feel great all the time!
How do they work?
SelectFlex® adjustable orthotics are so easy to use! They come prepackaged to your size and include the inserts and the custom Adjuster Key. This key is the ‘key’ to your comfort. You can adjust them for your personal and comfortable needs. From Medium support to Firm support to Extra Firm support, the inserts help to balance your feet so you have a painless shoe.
I used these the first time a few weeks back at CrossFit. I started out on Medium while I got used to them in my shoe. They are thin and flexible and fit my foot making my shoes even more comfortable than they were before.
After about a week I adjusted them to Firm. I have seen even more comfort and less pain as I jump on boxes, land on the floor from pull-ups and run. A little while ago I upped the support to Extra Firm but went back down as that setting was too firm for my foot needs.
That is the wonderful thing about these adjustable orthotics. They are CUSTOM to your feet and your needs but are a fraction of the cost of medical orthotics.
Why we need them as we age
I am 45 years young. While I am energetic, happy and feeling young, I am aging. As a woman and a single mom I am always on my feet. I even work standing up sometimes because sitting takes too much time. In fact, the average woman walks 3 miles more per day than the average male.[i]
As we age, those miles can really start to be painful. Typically in a person’s 30-40’s, the natural fat pads on the bottoms of the feet made from collagen and elastin gradually thin out, causing foot pain by the end of the day unless properly cushioned footwear is worn.[i]
I am sure that is what is happening to me! Gone are the days of regular tennis shoes feeling comfortable.
Now that I have SelectFlex®, I feel like my shoes work for me now instead of against me!

Once you get them home, remove the insert that came with your shoe. They should be fairly easy to remove.
Slide the SelectFlex® adjustable orthopedic into your shoe, smoothing out the toe.
Should there be overlap, use scissors to trim them up from the toe area.
Once they fit perfectly, use the Adjuster Key to set your firmness.
Be sure to line the black pointer guide with the white notch to adjust.
As I did, try them out for a little while before going up a notch to your perfect comfort level!
Now that you have a product that will only enhance your daily life, from CrossFit to walking the dogs, spread the word! We all need foot pain help and having a product on the market that is customizable and affordable is just amazing!
