I have both. The spur is in only 1 foot. I have used inserts for a number of years and they are my life saver. I have had 1 cortizone shot in the opposite foot as the spur when the pain was terrific. It really helped. I also have had to use a nighttime foot brace and it also helps.

I can not go barefoot or wear flip flops at all. I paid dearly for that mistake last summer after a stay at the lake doing both.

I would definitely use the inserts...I can use them in any shoe but I use them all the time, even in sandals. I can use small little round circles of velcro for sandals if I need to. It is a pain but so much better than the pain.

Good luck.
