Hydrofeet® Massage Insoles Helps Feet with Bunions




I grew up seeing my father’s bunions get bigger and bigger. As a child, I would always ask him what those protrusions were. He would give nice explanations of it. But his usual response was that it’s a sign that he is destined to get rich. “Ah, a status symbol,” I thought. So every time I am reminded of his bunion, I secretly wish that I would also have it when I grow up.

Be careful what you wish for, they say…

Later on, I found out that bunion or Hallux Valgus is a foot problem. It does not have anything to do with getting rich. Since it misaligns the bones of the feet and toes in particular, it could be very painful. A huge bunion also makes it impossible for a person to wear shoes!

I have more than 100 pairs of shoes, and I cannot imagine myself not being able to wear shoes. The horror! I immediately took back my wish. Please, no bunions for me.

Since having bunions is hereditary (the feet structure is inherited, not the bunion itself), I started doing research on how I could prevent it. A person needs to take action at the onset of the occurrence of bunions. That way, it will stop getting worse.

The early signs and symptoms of bunions are feeling a burning sensation in the big toe and second toe joint when wearing shoes or when doing long walks, noticing swelling and redness around the big toe joint, and seeing corns and callous forming on the same area.

When I went to my podiatrist (foot doctor), he told me that there is nothing to worry about. I’m not growing bunions – not yet. He advised me to wear therapeutic massage insoles to make sure I will not develop them.

There are hundreds of shoe insoles available in the market, but only one got me interested – Hydrofeet® . it is a therapeutic massage insoles made of vegetable-based glycerin and medical grade thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). I wonder how it feels to be “walking on water.”

I immediately purchased a pair. On the first two days, I only wore it two to three hours a day. At first, it did not seem to be doing its job. On the third day, my feet started feeling comfortable on it. After 1 week, I can’t live without Hydrofeet®!

The TPU makes these shoe insoles dynamic, durable, and strong. The glycerin inside really makes me feel like I’m walking on water. The product really eases my foot pain, and it makes me feel confident that I will never have bunions.

Thanks to Hydrofeet®, I would never experience not being able to wear shoes. I can still be on my toes for long hours. I am more productive and efficient at work. Seems like I am really destined to get rich – not because of bunions, but because I have Hydrofeet®.
