One of the most difficult things I have encountered when it comes to fitness is finding the right shoe. It really is a critical part of the fitness equation but yet sometimes it is so hard to find a shoe that fits right without causing blisters, knee pain, shin splints, etc. And having all of those things makes getting in shape or staying in shape next to impossible. It’s especially difficult to find a shoe that can withstand whatever activity we are doing, even beyond the workout aspect.
I have tried so many brands of shoes and the ones that fit are a rare find compared to the ones that don’t, so when I read about Therafit I was intrigued.
Therafit’s Patented and Accredited Technology for Women’s Shoes
This patented technology was developed to create women’s comfortable footwear with personalized comfort and support. Our goal is to improve how you feel throughout the day. By using multiple layers of cushioning and support with varying densities inside each and every shoe, the shock of each step is distributed downward and outward. The result is extremely comfortable shoes that cushion your foot on impact, helping to reduce the aches and pains that come from the stress of everyday activities. Durable materials provide a shoe product that can go the distance for both work and play.
Therafit for me:
I was excited to try Therafit because I recently started on a new fitness program and my current cross trainer shoes are a little too stiff for me. They also tend to dig into my leg just above my ankle. I’ve tolerated them because of the support they offered but I’d never been happy with them.
I selected the Deborah model in pink. I normally wear a size 9 but Therafit recommends ordering a half size up from your normal size because of the way they fit so I ordered a 9 1/2.
About the Deborah:
Deborah is our lightweight athletic trainer for your active lifestyle! Made with breathable mesh and soft, synthetic materials, the Deborah is one of the most comfortable shoes we have tested. These top rated shoes are available in pink as well as other bold colors that complement your personality. With a molded, removable footbed giving even more cushion and support, this is the 12-HOUR shoe for your 12-HOUR day. Each pair is individually inspected to make sure it is perfect before it is wrapped and placed in it’s box. This Therafit by Dr.Lisa product , reviewed as one of the best walking shoes for women , is suitable for working out in the gym or for the casual stroll!
From the moment I put these on…I was not in love. Not what you expected? Yeah they bothered the outside of my feet even though I have very narrow feet. I almost cried. They are SO DARN CUTE!
Because I loved the look, I decided to wear my Therafit shoes around the house for the rest of the day to see if the fit changed. Within about an hour or so, they were like a completely different shoe. They actually fit perfectly!
The true test of my new Therafit’s however, was wearing them during my workout. I recently started a new fitness program called Les Mills Combat by Beachbody. The first time I did the workout I was actually pretty surprised at how well they worked for me. They had the stability I needed combined with the cushioning and fit I like. The foot opening is wider than my normal cross-trainer which means it doesn’t dig in above the ankle.
But one of the benefits of Therafit is that you can adjust the comfort level by removing one, two or all of the 3 comfort adapters in the sole of each shoe to provide the perfect cushioning for your needs. I tried different combinations and I found the perfect comfort level when I remove the center one in each shoe.
My Therafit’s are now my go-to shoe when I workout. I wear them for my fitness DVD routine, walking on the treadmill and for my weights routine. The only thing I don’t do is run in them because I have a pair of minimalist running shoes that I adore. My Therafit’s are so comfortable and offer support and great padding. My knees and my feet are able to handle whatever crazy plyometric workout I happen to be doing each day.
