I was advised by my GP about 18-20 years ago that my "bad back" was almost certainly caused by wearing wellies 12 hrs a day. He suggested insoles would help, and to experiment a bit, but firm arch support was important and also to adjust my bad posture.Hi I’ve been suffering with plantar fasciitis for about 12 months and have been told not to wear wellies. As a dairy farmer this is impossible. Anyone got any suggestions which brand of wellies is best for this condition. Thanks in advance.
Thanks I’ll get a pair and try, that’s the problem I’m in wellies all day every day I’ve tried expensive ones to cheap ones and nothing seams to make a differenceI was advised by my GP about 18-20 years ago that my "bad back" was almost certainly caused by wearing wellies 12 hrs a day.

I have now been using Dr Foot 3/4 length insoles ever since, each pair lasting through 2 pairs of cheap wellies from Wynnstay. I am of the view that some pukka custom insoles would be of benefit now.
For work boots, I wear walking boots as they offer the best support I could find. and they last about 12-18month I find
Ok thanks will do I am at that point now of so much pain I’m willing to try anything,thanks for the adviceI would go to doctor and get referred to a podiatrist and try and get them in the NHS. Mine were embarrassingly expensive but at the time I could barely walk and would have tried anything. Mine are silicon I think and were custom made.
Thanks I have had some temporary insoles made, can’t believe the difference got to try these for a few weeks before they make permanent onesMuck boot wellies are good , with built in gel insoles,, I got insoles made by making a plaster cast of your foot , then making insoles to correct your foot,, 250 pounds ,,but well worth it ,, can put them in any wellie or boot , couldn't do with out them,
