Q&A: Recommendations for best insoles for reducing heel impact pain due to exercise? Please?

Question by Ursulla: Recommendations for best insoles for reducing heel impact pain due to exercise? Please?
I’m very overweight and trying to work to lose it. I have a treadmill but due to my size, the repeated workouts is giving me noticeable heel pain due to the heel strikes on the treadmill. I cannot currently afford to buy a gym membership, a new piece of low-impact equipment or even a really nice pair of high-tech shoes (like shox or 360s). I don’t want to overdo and get my feet in such awful shape that I cannot continue the exercise. Please respond with suggestions for the thickest or best insoles or heelcups that might help me reduce the pain/injury factor. Thanks so much.
I don’t think its plantar fascitis…YET. Hoping to be proactive and avoid the problem if I can. I *think* that if I can find something really effective to cushion the impact until I lose some of the weight and/or can afford to buy a decent elliptical then I can continue with my goal of attaining a tolerable weight without too much foot pain. Thank you for your reply. :)

Are you sure your heel pain isnt plantar fasciaitis? Caused by the muscle being pulled away from the bones of your foot by a stronger calf muscle.

I am a 250 lb guy who had significant heel / arch pain. I went to a foot doctor who made orthotics. They cost me 0 dollars but the results are phenomenal. No pain within days of wearing them in all shoes.
