Bottom of the Foot Soreness: Think Accommodation
Above is a Spenco insert which has the area of soreness cut out on the right foot. You can mark the sore area with a felt pen or old lipstick on your foot. Then put your foot into the shoe and walk a few feet to see where the mark comes out. Cut an area just bigger than the mark. 2 layers may be appropriate.
Here 1/8 th inch adhesive felt is being used to accommodate a sore big toe joint. Be creative with old shoe inserts that you are not using anymore.
