When the founder of AirFeet insoles was forced to switch jobs after years of brutalizing his body doing construction work, he needed a new path, and his aching back and feet led the way.

He decided that he wanted to do what he could to prevent others from experiencing the same aches and pains just from living their daily lives, and AirFeet insoles were born.

Most of us have some kind of foot condition that causes pain. That's especially true for those with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. The pain can range from tingling and burning to stabbing pain that feels as though hundreds of needles are being forced into the soles of the feet, but the one thing that remains the same is that it's uncomfortable for all who have it.

A problem that impacts more than 4 million people in the United States - about a quarter of the 16 million living with diabetes - neuropathy can be treated with several different drugs that have been shown to help ease the pain. Trouble is, drugs don't always work for everyone, and some may have undesirable side effects.

For those looking for an answer beyond drugs, AirFeet insoles might be the answer.

Designed to help increase circulation through the grooves and channels that cover the insole and provide constant massage to the base of the foot, the thin insoles provide cushioning with something they call Active Flow Media, a patented substance that flows back and forth with every step, providing support to the entire foot.

In addition, AirFeet insoles can be popped into the freezer for an added cooling effect that will sooth aching, sore feet, especially those with the tingling of neuropathy, which is often treated with cold packs.

Currently, the insoles are marketed at a variety of conferences and festivals - pretty much anywhere that people with sore feet much show up - and customers have posted on the company's website a wealth of testimonials about the innovative insoles.

Marie, a woman who picked her insoles up at a festival celebrating blueberries, said, "I had numbness in both legs when I walked in the AirFeet Booth. I felt like I was walking on rocks because of my neuropathy. Once I put the AF insoles in my shoes, within 10 minutes I could walk straighter, my numbness was gone, and my pain in my feet reduced! I'm so happy!"
