I suffer from metatarsalitis (aka capsulitis, pain under the metatarsal heads just behind the toes). I have been using this material as a sub-insole in all my shoes for the last five years or so and it is absolutely great. Basically all I do is buy my shoes a half size larger than normal, cut a piece of this material to fit the foot bed of the shoe, and insert it underneath the insole that comes with the shoe.
I use the material in my dress shoes as well as my running shoes. The insoles that come with sneakers go flat under the metatarsal heads very quickly but this material main maintains it cushioning properties. I am still using the original material that I purchased five years ago and I run about 20 miles per week.
