This one is a question for any of my readers who spin (as an instructor or student).
But first, do you have orthotics?
If yes, then do you wear them in your spin shoes?
Here's why I ask. I do have orthotics. I could barely walk without them, but I never used them in my spin shoes. Lately I tend to experience some foot pain while riding and am thinking maybe I need them in my shoes. Thing is, that means I need new spin shoes bc my orthotics are hefty. Therefore this isn't a decision to be entered in to lightly.
My orthotics cost $500 (yikes, right!?!) and were not covered by insurance. My other thought was that if I do opt for a new pair of shoes to try a cheaper orthotic. Right now there are many options out there, although I'm sure none of them are as good as the doctor made version.
