Test Results: After a ten-week test phase, 95% of our testers noticed particularly effective pain relief in the heel spur area. Irritations caused by prolonged wearing were not noticed. Disturbing pain while walking or at work was successfully suppressed, yet at the same time one could engage in light physical activities, such as morning jogging (light) or longer walks.

The arch support insoles were particularly effective in reducing pain in the heel area during day-to-day activities.

Our female testers wore the following types of shoes: running shoes, fitness shoes, ballerinas, loafers, boots, heeled boots, ankle boots, sandals, high-heels, hiking boots, ski boots.

Our male testers wore the following types of shoes: sneakers, business shoes, running shoes, hiking shoes, classic oxford shoes, ski boots.

In our forty test subjects, the pain in the heel area was relieved by up to 90% during this time. An obvious improvement in the sensitive area when walking was noticeable immediately after insertion of the insoles. Thirty out of forty test persons who used the arch support insoles had acute heel spur problems.

The test persons used the insoles during work (in the office), during daily tasks (e.g., mowing the lawn) and while jogging.

For people with supination issues, it is recommended to purchase the supination insoles or, in the case of plantar fasciitis, the special fallen arches insoles.

BOLLSEN offers a new anti-bacterial relief technology integrated at the bottom of the arch support insoles, which is called – Porr-Pad and has been developed and patented in Germany. Designed for people who wear shoes all day, this technology provides a protective shield against warts, athlete’s foot, viruses and bacteria. 5 out of 40 test persons have sweaty feet and that’s why we tested this product extensively. Our conclusion: we are thrilled with it. There were no additional costs for this extra service, which is affordable compared to other models (prices from £ 150 ).

The overall test result is very positive. The BOLLSEN product stands out from other products mainly due to its effects. After only seven days, our test persons have noticed a significant improvement in the quality of life. There was no heat sensation and, even after two weeks of use, no irritation in heels. Our conclusion: These arch support insoles offer optimal protection in daily use against annoying heel pain and without unwanted side effects. We also recommend the use of the anti-bacterial Porr-Pad underlay.

Instruction for Use: Remove the original insoles and carefully place the BOLLSEN insoles in the shoe with the index fingers and slowly turn towards the sole.

The original insoles were removed and the BOLLSEN insoles are carefully placed in the shoe with the index fingers and slowly turned towards the sole. Our testers were very satisfied with the use of the inserts and were positively surprised by the almost invisible and optimally fitting shape.

Protection of the Environment: Thumbs up on more time for the concept of reusability of the product. In addition, we are pleased to finally have a product that is designed for long wear. The shorter shipping distances also mean that less CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere.

Life Span: The manufacturer advertises that the product can be used 650 times (approx. 1000km), also for the sake of the environment. One pack of inserts lasted with our users for approx. 5 – 6 months. The test persons wore the arch support insoles on a daily basis.

The Service Guarantee Promise: BOLLSEN advertises its products with a money-back guarantee, as the company obviously believes very firmly in its products. Of course, we have also tested this option and returned a pair of used insoles after 35 days. We have been refunded our full payment amount two days after the receipt of the goods. Once again, we are pointing our thumbs up. However, individualized insoles are excluded from this offer.
