In Their Words:
Co-founder, Steven Llorens was skiing out of bounds at Lake Tahoe when both his bindings released and he was hurling down the mountain, between trees and rocks, in his ski boots. As a result of the injuries sustained from this fall he developed Plantar Fasciitis in his left foot which resulted in pain and swelling in the heel and arch area on the bottom of his foot.
He was advised by doctors to use orthotic insoles as part of his treatment plan to relieve pressure on his aching feet. But even with insoles, the pain persisted, especially when walking barefoot. Further, none of the orthotics he found could be worn with flip-flops, sandals or slippers.
Frustrated by the lack of relief from insoles, foot supports, and foot wraps already on the market, Llorens set out to develop a product that would ease his own discomfort. Shortly thereafter, he visited his doctor, Spero Demoleas, DPM, Old Tappan, New Jersey, who was so impressed by Llorens’ invention that he began to prescribe the Sole Angel® as part of his treatment plan for patients suffering from similar conditions.
Encouraged by the positive responses of Dr. Demoleas and his patients, Llorens and partners Dr. Joy Marcial and Paul Mazzanobile founded Strutz™, with the Sole Angel® as the keystone of the company. Dr. Demoleas now serves as one of the company’s medical consultants.
After the Sole Angel’s ® introduction to the medical community, they quickly became favored by leading podiatrists across the country, and dispensed at a prestigious podiatric university teaching hospital. The Sole Angel® is proven to provide instant relief for tired, achy feet and to ease heel, arch, ball of foot, knee, hip and lower back pain caused by stress and shock to the foot, as well as ease pain from injury and conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, fallen arches and flat feet.
I am always walking around barefoot when I am at home, even outside, although I know I shouldn’t. Because of this my feet usually need a lot of extra care. I’d love to get pedicures all the time but they cost way too much for me to get them on a regular basis.
I got to review STRUTZ Sole Angel Socks and Soothing Foot Cream. I was a little confused on the socks at first but now I can see why they are made the way they are. They let your foot breathe while still moisturizing. They are very stretchy, my husband and I were both able to wear them. On the inside of the sock, near the heel, there is a rubber like lining. Which is what makes the socks special. The lining helps any foot cream you are using soak in and the socks stay cleaner.
Both products especially used together were great on my feet. They were very soft with out any heel “filing” after each use. I have only been using them for about 30 minutes at a time but I think I might start sleeping in them and see how much of affect that has.
