Thousands of South Africans have worn or still wear Step Forward Soft-Steps®. These are just a few of their stories, told in their own words!

Graag wil ek van die geleentheid gebruik maak om julle te bedank vir die wonderlike, uitstekende, puik diens!! Een van die bogenoemdes is nie genoeg om werklik uit te druk van die goeie diens wat ek ontvang het nie. Julle het werklik soveel geduld, en stel werklik ook belang oor die uitwerking wat Soft-Steps® op die verbruiker het. Dit is nie ‘n kwessie van soos talle ander produkte, koop die produk en kom net uit ons hare uit… Ek sal julle op hoogte hou van hoe my voete vorder. Die een voet is reeds geopereer, maar as my ander voet aanhou reageer soos wat hy nou doen…..glo ek nie ‘n operasie gaan nodig wees nie… Weereens baie dankie vir besonderse diens. Julle is mense wat werklik belangstel in die gebruikers van julle produk.

It was with a small amount of reservation that I purchased the inner soles on the 15th September 2005. Would they work for me? I only had a week to get used to them before our trip up Mt. Kilimanjaro. Was I doing the right thing? I followed the instructions on how to get used to them in my shoes – it was a little uncomfortable at first as you said. By Wednesday the 21st I wore them for almost a whole day. My feet were quite tender so I gave them a break for the next two days. I would wear them again on Friday 23rd on our trip up to Johannesburg and the flight through to Kilimanjaro. Not being on my feet all day, they were fine. I didn’t wear them Saturday – as we were just having a quiet day at the hotel. Then Sunday it was time to set off on the first of 6 days hiking. Now was the test! We did a 6 hour hike through the rain forest up to our first camp. And I had no pain in my feet. I was now convinced that they were working. The next question was would I be able to wear them again the next day. I hadn’t really worn them 2 days in a row for any length of time. I did, and again they were fine. Now they were a permanent part of my hiking boots. What I’m really saying is that the inner-soles made my trip a success! We reached the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro on Thursday morning with great jubilation. I would like to thank you for your time and congratulate you on a great product.

Ek het redelik baie voetprobleme nadat ek jare gelede met ankoliserende spondylitis gediagnoseer is. Dit het gelei tot ‘n onndige voetoperasie, hammertoes, ens. Ortopediese insoles het ‘n bietjie verligting gebring. In Julie 2014 het ek Step Forward in George gesien, maar geskrik vir die prys en maar pyn verduur. Op 24 Mei 2015 is ek weer op Bloemfontein skou aan Soft-Steps® voorgestel en het ‘n paar aangeskaf. Ek dra dit nou 5 weke en weet dit is die beste paar rand wat ek nog spandeer het – ongelooflik! Ek het 30 jaar te lank gewag vir hierdie uitvindsel. Dankie ook aan die dame in Bloemfontein wat my oortuig het om Soft-Steps® aan te skaf.

Ek voel so sleg dat ek jou nog nie laat weet net nie. So dol aan die kant met die golf. Op die oomblik in Zambia. Ek geniet my innersoles soo baie – regtig ‘n bate vir my golf. Nogmaals dankie. (Professionele golfer).
ALBERT - GAUTENG

I am loving my insoles and amazed at how they are working. On reading your brochure saw my ‘out of alignment’ – one shoulder and hip lower than the other. So was not surprised when I felt ‘pulling’, especially in my neck/shoulder area, after wearing the insoles. The insteps of both feet were also a bit tender on the third day of wear, first thing. But I do listen to my body and adjusted things accordingly. My ‘locked toes’, left foot, are starting to relax and I am quite amazed at the progress already. I am wearing them full time now and the only thing I haven’t done yet is jog in them because I have a bout of flu, but as soon as I can I will be jogging in my new best friends. Thank you for your help and good advice.

Just thought I would drop you a line to say that the orthotics I bought from you at the Getaway show in CT have really worked. I struggled for the first two weeks and felt like I was walking on potatoes and even had severe headaches which went down my back, but because they were so expensive I just had to make them work, and with your encouragement, took it more slowly. We did go to Italy and France after 2 weeks and I walked every day all day for 16 days, up and down 88 steps to our bedroom, and all was well, which is saying something as I had had such bad Plantar Fasciitis that I could hardly stand when I got out of bed in the morning. If I go a day without them my heels get sore and the tendons under my feet start to stiffen again, so I suppose it’s just a matter of keeping it going. Anyway thanks a million, as you know how your life comes to a halt when your feet give in and with these I’m fine!

Net 2 weke op sole en opvallendste kenmerk is verhoogte energievlak.

I just quickly want to let you know that Mervyn and I are both wearing our foot correctors all the time now and it makes a huge difference already. My left foot feels better than the right, but with time I am sure both feet will be fine. I should have done it years ago and I would have had less pain all these years and would have saved doctor’s fees and all sorts of medication. Mervyn mentioned that his heels are also much better and less lower back pain.
MARION - PE

All going well! Have got a new lease on life and am totally pain free which is wonderful. I am on to full day wear and the difference is beyond words. Thank so much for your wonderfully professional attention.
MAUREEN-RUTH - NATAL

Ek wil net graag verslag doen oor my Step Forward sole – dit werk 100% vir my. Na ‘n paar maande kan ek ook weer lekker vining stap. Sonder pyn….salig! baie dankie vir jou hulp en geduld met die sms’e.
MEV PRETORIUS - JEFFREYSBAAI

Hi there, I am using the inserts full day now and what a difference!!!! I haven’t been able to walk barefoot on a hard floor for many years. And now, in the evenings I can walk without pain. Also I am finding it so easy to get through the day pain free…what a pleasure. Thanks.
ROZ - (Plantar fasciitis 8 years)

I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Step Forward for helping me get back on my feet. Last year I was depressed because I was in extreme pain and couldn’t walk normally…I was using a crutch to help me move around. My son and daughter in law saw your stand at the House and Garden show and heard how the arches work. They took me next day to get fitted with a pair… It took me less than a week to get used to wearing the arches and it’s made such a positive change in my life. I’m so proud to say on Sunday, 26thMay, I did the 15 km East Coast Radio Big Walk. Thank you Step Forward for helping me live a normal life again. Keep up the good work and keep more people walking.
TINA - DBN

Things are a lot better. In the beginning it felt like hot spots under my feet but after 3 days a lot better. One thing I must say that the pains in my knees are virtually gone. I thought that I would never be able to run again without pain – since I am wearing the Soft-Step® I am able to run pain free. Thanks again.
GAVIN

I just wanted to let you know that I am loving the foot correctors. They feel amazing and I can already feel myself able to stand for long without having to have sore feet.
TELEAH - ENGLAND

Just thought I would let you know that I am delighted with the insoles. Already I miss them when I have the rest periods. I feel hugely optimistic that the hikes to the Wild Coast that I thought I would never do again may now be possible. I cannot begin to tell you what that means to me…. Later…..Did my first long hike today with my insoles. Cannot begin to thank you for a pain-free hike! Copied your pamphlet and gave it to 2 hikers who also seldom walk because of foot problems. So happy! Hikes that I had given up on like those to the Wild Coast become mine again. Thank you!
ERICA - DBN

Thanks for a wonderful product. I almost immediately started wearing it constantly from day 1. I cannot go without it anymore. All my friends comment on how much my life improved. This was my best buy ever. (Fasciitis)
GERDA - SECUNDA

I have to let you know that the new inserts have changed my life and I really do not have bunion pain any more. I am now delighted with them so thank you for persevering with me and not just refunding my money.
LINDSAY

Would like to promote product seeing I love the health aspect and it works. Back feels great.
VERA - WORCESTER

Had other orthotics with build up. Wanted to operate hip, but so much better with Soft-Steps®.

Cannot go without them. Thanks for a brilliant product. Worth every cent. They are unbelievable. I am so happy.
NOLA - PE 2011

Oh, I just love it. Wear them all the time.
PETRO - HENNEMAN 2012

Dra die sole heeldag en my voete is regtig baie beter. Baie dankie.
CHRISTA - BLOEMFONTEIN 2012

Thanks for the product. Remarkable transformation from not being able to walk intermediate distances, to being able to do so. I am aware that your product is often called ‘quackery’ because you are not medically recognized BUT the difference it’s made to me puts that to bed – once and for all!.. Thank you.
DAVID - TANZANIA

Hi, I have been suffering from heel pain, neck, shoulder and lower back pain when I get up in the morning. I changed numerous pillows but that didn’t help. I was advised to change my mattress for my back pain. A good mattress costs at least R15000. I saw your stand at the exhibition centre in Durban and the consultant explained how the Soft-Step® would benefit me. The price seemed high…I was a bit skeptical….but my wife insisted I get them because I often told her I need to sleep on a softer mattress in another room. She wasn’t buying this idea! She paid for the Soft-Steps®. I used them for two hours. The next morning I was a different person. I slept well that night and to my surprise I had no neck and shoulder and back pain. My sore heel pain I had 90% relief. It is not often you purchase something and you are satisfied. This has made a big change to my wellness. Further use will surely correct my ailment. I would recommend this product to people suffering from similar problems. Thank you.
CASSIM - DBN 2016

I am soooo excited and happy. The huge discomfort and tension I was feeling on my feet is gone. Yesterday I even made the mistake of walking without it because I no longer felt any discomfort or tension, but I paid the price because by evening I felt some pain. I am never gonna do without my Soft-Steps® again. It has helped me after about 3 weeks of using it.
NOMUSA - PMB 2016

Wearing all day for ages. 11 hours a day on feet. Much better.
ROBERT - 2017

Best R3000 I’ve spent!!! No more sore feet at night.
MOHAMED - DBN 2017

Hello…I haven’t walked this well and without pain in a couple of years. It was the best day ever that I walked past your promotion in Tyger Valley. I broke my foot 30 odd years ago and for the first time in many years the excessive swelling that occurred during walking and standing has reduced tremendously. It’s great to be able to walk and just be without pain. It has changed my whole personality and lifestyle. I have recommended your product to friends and even strangers. I used to have other supports and these are by far superior. It’s a great product and IT WORKS!!
