Experience with Eponashoes?

I was recently recommended the eponashoe from a gal and our local feed store. Her horse has navicular as does mine and it has worked wonders for hers. Her vet recommended it. I was reading testimonials and info and was wondering if any of you have tried it, and if so, what your experience has been.

We are currently in metal shoes with improvement in the hind but still need more. We have tried plastic shoes but to no avail. These sound like these could be helpful as they appear to be more natural. I have always had my horses barefoot, but this guy can't make that work for now at least. I tried the easyshoe made by easycare and while it helped, it wasn't enough. Now my boy is in metal wedge with pad and can rock back on his haunches again finally whereas he couldn't before. But if I could find a plastic one to give the same results I would certainly take it. He currently has to be in pasture alone due to back metal shoes (as required by my boarding facility). Despite his friends literally in pasture next door, he's not liking it. He has settled, but is very spooky and always looking for "buddies."

I'm trying to do groundwork to work on respect and his "attention" but that's difficult as much groundwork guarantees to make him sore in front where we seem to be "stuck" in terms of comfort. Best yield so far is flat shoe with wedge pad. Wedge shoe and flat shoe along only led to toe first landings and frog soreness.

So any feedback on this eponashoe would be much appreciated! :)
