How much do arch supports cost at the Good Feet Store?

According to the company, the arch supports are only available at an authorized Good Feet Store, and the reason being is that they will have to fit with precision by a specially trained Arch Support Specialist.  The arch supports, from what we researched, greatly vary across the United States, but in most cases, you will be offered two options:  a lifetime guarantee or a 30-day guarantee.  The average lifetime guarantee, which would replace the supports at a 50 percent discount if they wore out averaged close to $1,000 for about three supports, whereas the 30-day guarantee would average about $350 and would not receive a discount if they were to wear out after the 30 days.

With hundreds of testimonials online, we gathered as many estimates as we could and included what other people paid at a local Good Feet Store for their arch supports.

On this Yelp review for the San Diego location, countless people left a review claiming what they paid for their insoles.  Glancing at a few, one person paid $1,299 for three arch supports, while another paid $840 for three soles.  Another negative review said if you were careful, you could walk out with a $300 lifetime insert with a $20 annual replacement.

Tips to know

No refunds are given on any arch supports and the company sticks to this strict policy; however, they will offer a store credit only if you’re unsatisfied with the purchase.  In fact, you can find a variety of people selling their new soles directly from the store on eBay for a fraction of what you would pay.  If you know which insert size you need, this may help you save a few dollars.

Dr. Larry Huppin at The Foot and Ankle Center of Washington notes the stores will charge hundreds of dollars but will not be inferior to any other arch supports which may cost about $60.  In his evaluation, the arch supports provide very little support of the mid-portion of the arch, not making them bad or good for that matter.  In the end, he states the buyer should “beware” of the soles and recommends highly doing research before making a purchase.

How to save money

We read countless testimonials that the arches were not worth it.  Reading these reviews here and here, multiple reviewers claimed you could go to Amazon.com and purchase similar soles for as little as $10 to $30+ and the material, when compared to the Good Feet Store, were almost identical.  Again, this is what we read online and cannot be guaranteed.  The Happy Feet insoles and WALKFIT, for example, were highly recommended by most and cost less than $50.

Aside from purchasing on Amazon.com, many also recommended visiting a podiatrist to have a custom arch support made as this could help you save money for two reasons.  For starters, the custom arch supports, which often come from the doctor’s office, will be molded and created by a doctor’s recommendation unlike a sales representative at the Good Feet Store who has no medical experience in no cases.  In some circumstances, the arches of your shoe may not be causing the problem.  Secondly, many reported you could use your health insurance and see some coverage as long as the arch supports were medically necessary and prescribed by the specialist.

If your heart is set on purchasing arch supports from the company, it appears you can negotiate on the price.  Keep in mind that the salespeople stick to a strict script and are relentless in pressuring a sale.  From reading reviews by employees online, it seems most sales representatives will make $10 an hour plus 10% commission.
