PLACING THE ARTISAN ARCHES IN THE SHOE:
Always test the arch positions in your footwear prior to removing the adhesive backing.
Athletic shoes/Ski boots/Snowboard boots/Skates/Golf shoes: You may place the Artisan Arch on top of the insole that comes with the shoe or on the shoe underneath the insole.
Dress shoes/Heels: You may not be able to remove an existing insole, that’s OK. You can place the Artisan Arch directly on the shoe. You should feel the support in the center of the arch.
Sandals/Open heel shoes: You can place the Artisan Arch directly on the sandal. You should feel the support in the center of the arch.
**The Golf Ball Effect: At first you may feel as if you are standing on a golf ball or the arch may give more support under one foot than the other. This is normal; the Artisan Arches supportive design is adjusting you for a supported foot position. This should go away in a short time.
**Exercising: Do not exercise with the Artisan Arches until your body has completely adjusted to them.
Please Note: Artisan Arches’ beveled edge allows air circulation to flow through the foam support. If you have an adhesive sensitivity we suggest you place Artisan Arches under the insole of your shoe.
Artisan Arches may not work for everyone. After following the wearing instructions, if you experience pain that lasts for more than a day in your ankles, knees, hips, or back you should stop wearing the arches and email customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
STANDARD CARE INSTRUCTIONS
You may clean Artisan Arches with a soapy cloth lightly passed over them. Do not scrub as this may cause premature deterioration.
