WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I am a sport person and highly require my foot and legs fitness. Due to vigorous exercise I was suffering from heel pain since more than 6 months. Doctors advised me to use orthotic insoles. Got the information about Shapecrunch through the Internet and contacted in the given number. The phone call was responded by jatin who seemed to be a knowledgeable and cooperating guy. My brother who was visiting me from USA also had similar problem and was prescribed for same. We both ordered total 4 pairs of insoles and got them made in just 3-4 days. We both are using them since then and now are in great relief. Happy with the service and the product. The staff is very cooperating, they even showed up the process of making these. Product are also very good, useful and value for money. Highly recommend it.
I tried a pair of Shapecrunch customized insoles a few months back for my Morton's neuroma pain. Satisfied, I ordered another pair. The staff cared to call 2 or 3 times to check if I have been comfortable with the new pair also, which I am. Very satisfied with the product and service.👍👍
Shapecrunch is the one source I know of for quality shoe insoles for helping with my problem of the diverted toe (hallux valgus).
I've wasted a lot of money, time, and effort trying to source a good insole for addressing my problem. Everything I tried was too soft, thereby providing no arch support at all. It was not only expensive but cost valuable time, which resulted in my problem becoming much, much worse.
