I didn't think this was an issue until I read the recent post about the person with the flat feet. Now I am a little concerend about this so here we go: D has shoe inserts she wears daily. She got them at the State Fair (odd place to get such a thing, I know!) they were NOT prescribed by a doctor. She wears them in her running shoes. She has had them for almost three years. She got them because her feet hurt sometimes when she runs a lot. The guy at the fair said they would help (and they have). She has used them ever since. They fit easily in the shoe inplace of the insole that comes with the shoe. She expected to bring them with her when she goes to AFA but now I am wondering if she can just wear them in her shoes when she goes, as she had planned. They were not prescribed by a doctor and she has never seen a doctor for her feet. I asked her if she could survive Beast without them and she said she could - but would rather not. I looked at the form we filled out initially for DoDMRB and line 55 said "foot troubles / use orthotics" we answered "no" because we didn't think of these - and they were not prescribed by a doctor - I don't even think they classify as "orthotics". They are just plastic things you put in your shoes that give a little extra arch support (high arches run in the family). I have even seen these things at WalMart so they are easy to get. Suggestions? Can she just appear with them (her preference)? Should I just plan to bring them to her over parents weekend? Thanks.
