Have tried different "plain cushioned sole inserts" from thin to
the thickest I can find. Have been able to find any that are real
comfortable in shoes and they seem to have a tendency to "bunch up" by the
end of the day...causing discomfort.

Since we do not own the house we are living in; are unable to do
anything about the flooring.
And, I have tried a lot of different types of shoes; have not worn
anything with a "heel" on it in so many years I can not remember. I try to
wear shoes with good insoles, arch supports, etc. I find the hardest thing
about comfortable shoes is the weight of a lot of shoes on the market.
Have worn sport shoes, jogging shoes, walking shoes...both
expensive and inexpensive. Now, as a last resort; have made up my mind to
try the magnetic insoles. May be wasting my money; but no more than I have
already wasted on shoes and other products. :-)
Talked to Tech Support at Disetronic today, maker of my pump, and
was told that as long as the gauss rating was not above 1000; the magnetic
insoles would not cause any problems with the pump. Of course, you don't
want to remove the pump, "store it in a shoe with an insole" while
swimming. That has not been tested!
Hope to have my insoles within the next 7-10 days and will update
how I think they are working.
