Common Causes of Foot Pain
Once this natural positioning is changed by advancing age, improper shoes, lack of muscle-toning exercise, or by the shock of hard-surface impact (long hours of walking or standing), the bones are subject to misalignment and the result is foot pain.here is really no mystery to foot pain. The majority of foot problems are of a mechanical nature. The tendons, muscles and ligaments that hold the foot’s 26 bones stretch and improperly alter the foot’s position.
Feathersprings realign your foot. Normal function returns, thereby eliminating the problems that cause your pain.
People often buy new shoes which they hope will bring the comfort and relief they are looking for. The fact is shoes will not solve the problem — for the most part, they are the cause of the problem.
Flexible Featherspring Foot Supports provide the support needed to return the foot to a healthier and more comfortable condition. This eliminates the following problems that cause your pain.
- Corns and calluses: they are probably the most common signs of developing foot problems, and certainly they’re among the most painful. Basically, they are caused by friction and pressure against the sole and sides of the shoe. Rubbing and pressure creates soft corns between toes, and hard corns on top surfaces. Custom-formed Feathersprings allow your foot’s skin to regain its elasticity.
- Burning sensation: on the balls of the feet often can be attributed to calluses that thicken and rob the skin of its elasticity. By helping end the calluses, Feathersprings allow your foot’s skin to regain its elasticity.
- Bunion: the most common bunion is found at the head of the first metatarsal bone. This adds abnormal width across the ball of the foot, making it difficult to find shoes that are narrow enough at the heel and wide enough at the ball of the foot, to provide a comfortable fit. Feathersprings prevent this occurrence and as a result, offer greater opportunity to wear a variety of shoes.
- Dropped metatarsals:
Five long, slender bones (metatarsals) form an arch across the width of the foot. The first metatarsal is supposed to take the bulk of the body weight, with the remainder of the weight distributed evenly across the foot as it moves. However, when the foot is compressed inside a shoe, one of the metatarsal bones may drop below another. More weight then falls on the dropped bone, causing abnormal friction and poor balance. The ligaments holding these bones together become stretched, allowing still other bones to drop.
This breakdown can adversely affect nerves and blood circulation to the feet. Calluses develop under the dropped bones, and walking becomes difficult and painful.
Feathersprings’ unique support system gives your feet the support they need to evenly distribute weight all across the foot and ends your foot pain.
And that’s why you need Featherspring Foot Supports.
Build a Solid Foundation for Pain Free Feet
Because the major cause of most foot pain is faulty weight distribution, the obvious solution to end the pain is proper weight distribution. And that’s just what Flexible Featherspring Foot Supports provide.
A solid foundation
Proper footing is essential to any structure. A faulty foundation will cause a building to strain, sag, tilt and even collapse. The “foundation” of the human body is the foot, and defects in that foundation manifest themselves in dozens of ways and locations. Foot failure not only shows up in the feet themselves, but frequently causes leg, joint and back problems. Invariably these problems are typified by ever-increasing pains and can only get worse when you do nothing about it.
Feathersprings are hand-formed for your foot alone, to fit your own foot’s shape, size, structure, balance and problems. They provide a unique three-point suspension system which provides continuous, balanced, moving support for all areas of your feet.
How Feathersprings work!
With this three-point suspension system, your foot floats free and independent of the different slopes and curves of varying shoe shanks. Therefore, both the longitudinal and metatarsal arches of your feet receive the same precise support and cushion they need, constantly and naturally, regardless of the shoes you wear.
Unlike built-in, fixed position metatarsal bumps or rigid stationary supports, the Featherspring metatarsal support rides independently of the shoe and moves with the foot as it flexes, and thus remains accurately in position with the foot at all times.
A very important difference!
By holding the metatarsal bones in a natural position and cushioning them from excess pressure, friction is eliminated and excessive spreading across the ball is prevented. This slightly shortens and narrows the foot, reducing pressure against the sides of the shoe. . . and greatly helps to relieve the discomfort and pain you feel.
Feathersprings are the answer
Most foot-related problems are due to modern day environment and life-style; ill fitting shoes, lack of free foot natural exercise, constantly walking or standing on hard surfaces. The answer is, of course, scientifically designed Featherspring Foot Supports.
Each foot has 26 bones held in position by tendons, muscles and ligaments. Defects in foot structure contribute to problems and pain in the entire body. The only real solution is foot supports that are crafted to specifically fit the sole of each foot—this will correct each foots’ individual problems, give total foot support and provide the natural flex and spring your feet need to be pain-free.
Featherspring is a Revolutionary Design in Foot Support
Feathersprings are individually formed foot supports made from high quality, lightweight Swedish stainless spring steel. They are designed in Europe by medical technicians and formed one at a time by West German orthopedic specialists. Custom-made Feathersprings offer foot sufferers pain relief not possible any other way.
Feathersprings are unique—and revolutionary—in several ways. First, Feathersprings are truly hand-formed to fit your feet (and your feet alone,) from the footprints you made and send us. (How to make footprint impressions shown on back panel.) These imprints tell our orthopedic technicians exactly how your Feathersprings should be shaped to relieve any problems or misalignments your feet may have.
Because no two people’s feet or foot problems are exactly alike, it is imperative that foot supports be scientifically crafted to conform to each foot and its own variables.
Secondly, Feathersprings also cushion against the pain and damage caused by walking or standing on hard surfaces. This is accomplished by the use of spring steel and a patented three-point suspension design. Thus, Feathersprings not only assure total foot support and relief from existing pain; they also prevent new problems from beginning.
Feathersprings’ unique suspension allows your feet to move naturally. With this three-point suspension system, your foot floats free and independent of the different slopes and curves of varying shoe shapes. Unlike rigid supports, Feathersprings give complete foot support and provide continuous balance for all areas of your feet, all day long.
One set is all you’ll ever need, as Feathersprings slip easily from one pair of shoes to another. They can be used in any type of footwear, from open-toe shoes and sandals to work shoes or hunting boots. Even your favorite sneakers will feel more comfortable than ever before.
Featherspring Foot Supports are Custom Formed to End Your Foot Pain
Your footprints are as individual as your fingerprints. . . and so are your feet. No one else has feet exactly like yours, and neither one of your feet is exactly like the other. Not only do feet come in different shapes and sizes, but as life progresses, they develop different problems. Corns, bunions, calluses are early warning signs that your feet need help.
No store-bought foot aid can possibly provide the blessed pain relief you’ll get from custom-made Feathersprings.
That’s also why you can’t just walk into a store and pick up a pair of Featherspring Foot Supports. Featherspring Foot supports are sold only by mail. They are not available in any store. They’re custom crafted, one at a time, for you alone. They’re as individualized as a pair of eyeglasses or dentures.
Just as a dentist of eye doctor will check your teeth or eyes to determine what problems need correcting, our orthopedic technicians study your footprint impressions.
That’s why we’ve enclosed a sheet of specially sensitized imprint paper, along with directions. When you send us the imprints of your feet, our highly trained orthopedic technicians will “read” and determine where your foot pains are originating, why the problem is occurring, and how to design your personal, individualized Feathersprings to eliminate those problems and relieve your foot pain.
But that’s not all. Our concern for your foot comfort doesn’t end when we deliver your custom-formed Feathersprings.
Fits Any Shoe For Lasting Comfort
Featherspring Foot Supports can be used in any shoe: your feet will feel instantly better in dress shoes, casual shoes, athletic shoes, heels, sandals, work shoes and boots. No matter how many pairs of shoes you own, just one pair of Flexible Featherspring Foot Supports is all you’ll ever need to end your pain.

If you’ve suffered from corns, bunions or other foot problems over the years, it might require a few days for your feet to re-adjust to normal, natural, comfortable walking motion. Feathersprings are light in weight and almost invisible when worn in your shoes. You’ll forget you’re wearing anything at all.
