My new pair of boots were not as comfortable as expected. I bought this product and it worked like heaven. I now can wear my boots for 10+ compared to 5+ hrs without this product. It's thicker than expected and stays in place even without the adhesives.
These were pretty good! The gel padding was a bit weird to get used to at first, but once I’d worn them for several minutes, I immediately started to settle into them. They fit nicely underneath socks OR with flip-flops. They are comfortable inside shoes, and the Metatarsal Pads maintain their support even after hours of being on your feet at work or out and about.The only issue I really caught was that the bands did feel a little tight, and the seam in one was kind of itchy, but I just clipped the piece through the seam and played around with the band by stretching it with my fingers for initial relief. Once I’d worn the pads for awhile (in other words, once they’d been “broken in”), I found that the tightness was no longer an issue. These are best for medium-sized feet (I am roughly a 9 in men’s).Overall, they served their purpose pretty well! The gel was very supportive and comfortable over a long period, and the fabric was nice and soft against my skin! I didn’t have any problem with rough rubbing like I usually would after hours in socks. A good option for anybody looking to provide some support for the balls of their feet.
I received my cushions last week and have been wearing them to work since. I work 9+ hours in an office and I wear high-heels. I was noticing some foot pain after being on my feet for a lot of the day and walking around. These have definitely made my shoes more comfortable to wear and do the trick!
I received these on a Friday morning which was PERFECT as I was planning to hang out Friday night so of course I’d be in my heels. I slipped these babies in and tore up the streets of NY for hours- COMFORTABLY! They don’t slip and they have the perfect amount of cushion. Now you can wear your stilettos and not have the weird, tired “lady of the night” walk when you’re done... oh, stop! You know that walk- when your feet have had enough, one of your shoes is halfway off and now you’re unbalanced and limping and you kinda resemble a zombie prostitu... nevermind. Just buy the darn thing!
These really work! I'm super happy w/my purchase of these metatarsal pads - very comfortable and stay in place. I was looking for metatarsal pads that stayed in place during high intensity workouts and these definitely do. My other pads have a gel adhesive that attach to the ball of your foot and the surface that faces the sock/shoe is fairly slick; therefore, they slide around in my socks during workouts - not desirable during kickboxing, hip hope, etc. I put these on then my socks, shoes and my feet stay in place. Highly recommend!
The metatarsal pads themselves are nice and soft. The bottoms have holes for breathing. Great if you don’t have trypophobia! I wear them under my socks for extra comfort walking on my hard floors. It did also come with a bonus set of pads to put in shoes. A great perk that adds value to this purchase.
I used these on a pair of shoes that are very uncomfortable. The first time I wore the shoes, I was literally limping in pain about 2 hours into the event, and had to wear tennis shoes for the next two days to heal foot injuries, specifically to the ball of my foot and toes. So I bought these because I know I'd be wearing the shoes again, and was looking for a way to make them comfortable when standing for long hours.These were a tiny bit uncomfortable, but it may have been my placement, overall they fit, the adhesive worked, and were helpful. However, my feet still got to a place where I was constantly wincing in pain. I will say that, the next day, my feet did not hurt, and I attribute that these guys.Bottom line, they are helpful, and worth the price, but nothing is going to make up for the natural discomfort that some shoes invariably come with.
These are wonderful. I have suddenly been having really sore areas under my toes and balls of my feet. I had about given up wearing my winter boots as they seem to be what has aggravated it. These have made me able to wear my boots again! They must be worn under socks to stay put and you have to take it slow and be careful putting your shoes on. But...once on, I haven’t had them budge all day. I totally forget they are there except my feet feel so much better. I’ve done a ton of walking this winter—NYC, Paris, etc. These give me hope!!! :)
Love this! Helps soften every step and is very discreet. You can’t see it when you’re wearing them in your heels so it’s not tacky. Plus, they stick onto the shoe very securely as the adhesive is a gel so I don’t worry about them slipping as I’m walking. From what I’ve seen so far, they come off easily in case I wanted to remove them, so it won’t leave sitcky stains on my heels.
I purchased these for a friend who has plantar fasciitis and she can't stop praising these foot pads! She works in a nonprofit, community-outreach and is on her feet for hours at a time (even more so now due to the Covid-19 issue). By the end of some days, she is literally dragging her feet from pain and can barely stand upright even with having sneakers on all day. These pads have helped reduce the swelling in her feet as well as made wearing shoes on long work days comfortable again. She was also thrilled that this contains 2 pairs so that she has a pair to wear while the other is being washed. All in all, I think this was a great purchase that has really brought some comfort and relief to my friend.
I walk several blocks back and forth to my university 5 days out of the week, and around campus a lot, so my feet can sometimes get annoyingly blistered too often. I wanted to try this just to see if it made my daily walk a bit easier. They're definitely worth the buy, for me at least. They cover the exact spot I get blisters, and add a bit of cushion so that there's not as much chafing. Though, they do make my feet sweat a bit more for whatever reason. Anyways, I'd recommend.
I used this product to reduce the recent pain I feel on the balls of my feet. The pads are easy to install. Do they make a difference? Not immediately apparent. Pain seems slightly lessened in one foot. I can't feel the pads' softness, at least through my rather thick calluses.
Great product for people who don’t wear heels on a regular basis (like me ;P), to help with making them more comfortable to wear & tolerate. Even people who wear them regularly (I commend you for sure because I couldn’t haha) would help with the comfort of every day life. Great product overall!!
I walk four miles on cement and the ball of my feet were really starting to hurt after my walks. I have tried the gel pads but the move around too much, and also inserts in my shoes not cushion enough. These pads work the best for extra cush I needed. I wear these under my socks, it does add some extra width to your shoes, but adjusting the laces to allow the room fixes this. At first it feels a bit strange but after a bit I am used to them, and now can't walk without them. I sort of move mine up and over a bit to pad the area that bothers me, but they stay put where I put them. I have washed in the machine a few times now, but I do let them air dry, don't want them to shrink. My feet are pretty much average, no swelling, good fit.
These are very simple to use. Stick them and they relieve the pain on the ball of your foot. I however didn't realize how difficult it could be to correctly place them. Luckily, even though they are very sticky and stay in place they are also easily movable upon first application. I moved and adjusted several times. It was easier in my open toed shoes. I bought a pair of cute boots and used the second pair in them. Serious pain in my ass to get correctly placed. When they weren't it was extremely uncomfortable. But once I finally did they were life savors!
I got these foot pads to help prevent tired and sore feet at the end of the day. I have tried plenty of brands, all within different price ranges, but overall, all of them either didnt help to begin with or worked only for a short time until flat. These pads are THICK and nice and SQUISHY. In a good way! I will have to admit I couldnt help squeezing them in my hands for a bit before trying them on because they felt so good and resilient. I was a little worried about how they would stay in place because of some of the other reviews, but I dt have not had that problem. Wore them for a full day and they didnt budge. I did wear socks the whole time, so maybe that helped. Have worn them for a week straight now and so far, they feel exactly the same as day one. They seem like they will last quite awhile-finally some foot cushions/pads that stay put and give relief!
I really liked these! I tried them on with heels and I was able to wear them with out discomfort or pain for hours. I used the Walkize and they were so comfortable and cause no pain on my feet. I will be purchasing this. They are very cushioned and soft. Once you put them in your desired shoes your foot just falls into place. I think these will also be a great item for a gift! Now I can wear high heels without having to take extra shoes to a party.
Overall a great purchase and would recommend to anyone. I definitely could wear and walk in my heels much easier without worrying about pain. (The heels I bought were for the most part constructed well and made to support the foot but nonetheless still a heel and these helped! )
I absolutely love these. I love wearing high heels but I just about gave up wearing them because they kill my feet. I found out about these and decided to give them a try before I decided to passed my shoes on and thank goodness I did. These Metatarsal Pads are amazing! They stick great to whatever shoe you put them in and there is no sliding around when walking like there is with some of the other brands. I do have a couple other brands but I don't use them because 1. They slide around and 2. You can see them. With these Metatarsal Pads you can't see the pads in your shoes!!! 😍 let's talk about the comfort, it's like walking on a cloud, I tend to forget I am walking around in my high heels. I will definitely be buying a couple more pairs for my shoes.
I wish I had bought these months ago. These are some of the best shoe pads I've ever used.They're made from a thick gel, and have raised ridges that fit between your toes. I'm not sure if the ridged shape helps with the comfort, but it definitely made them easier to place.I tested them on my highest pair of heels, which of course also have a hard inner sole. As much as I love them, they're incredibly painful within half an hour of wearing them. There was an immediate and noticeable difference using these pads. Relieved a lot of the pressure and pain I felt in the balls of my feet.As a bonus the package had a little booklet on metatarsal pain, which was a nice touch.
This product was very easy to slide on my feet. I slipped the product on before a nightly run and I could immediately tell the difference. This product provided protection to my feet that I haven't had in a while.
I would have taken a picture, but i used them in a pair of closed-toed thigh high boots during my date night. They had a slight factory odor to them, but Im sure it’ll fade quickly. I mean, it’s going on your foot... you’ll never smell it outside of first opening the pack, so I’m not taking any stars for that. They are a smidge tricky to deal with on a closed toe, but it’s nothing you can’t manage. I thought the thickness would be an issue, but after walking around on them for 10-15 minutes they fit snug and comfortable to the bottom of my foot. That’s not to say that they’ll flatten easily, either. Shortly after I took my boots off I noticed that the pads thickened up again. All in all they made for a very very comfortable night in shoes that I normally have issues with after a couple hours of wear. I didn’t even notice that my feet weren’t hurting until we were on our way home. That’s how comfy these are. It felt like it was made personally for my foot. I can’t wait to order more of these for my other heels!
Even though it says it in the description, I didn’t realize this came with two pairs. I kept one for myself and one for my mom. We put them in our shoes immediately after receiving them. Wow! What a difference. My mom has issues with her feet and legs and these brought an instant comfort to her shoes. I previously had custom insoles from a foot doc that were so painful, I couldn’t wear them. This is the perfect solution.UPDATE: I wanted to share this after wearing these for a few days. Still very comfortable and not very bulky. I did not peel off the sticky backs because I wanted to be able to move them from shoe to shoe. They stay in place nicely even without using the sticky part.
These cushions are very comfortable and cushy. If you follow the instructions, they are fairly easy to apply. I don't think they are, but they feel a little as though they are sliding down when I stand in my shoes. They do seem durable.
I liked that these weren’t just pads, that they had a toe ring attachment to ensure that they stay in place! Been wearing these and have to say that they’re keeping my feet happy! Be weary that it does cause your foot pads to be thicker, so your shoes may become a bit tight.After wearing these for a couple weeks, they've helped with long walks and also with my shoes that are slightly bigger.Extra points that they came with a gel pad pair (without toe ring). You do have to wash these though, as they're of a different material than gel and does get dirtier quicker.
I had some heels which were comfortable, but could be just a little better. This provided a good amount of cushion but didn't take up too much space in the shoe. Very comfortable and I like that they give you two pairs: two for the left shoe, two for the right. I didn't end up using the flats I bought just in case!So I don't know if these have long lasting life, but they definitely helped me to enjoy my shoes for an important event.
I am flat footed and a long walk or a hike causes my feet hurt severely. But I guess not anymore. Love these pads! I don't feel as sore when I am wearing these. I was concerned that the band around my toe would be uncomfortable but I barely feel any pressure. Best thing, they are not bulky and will be good with any type of shoes - sneakers, flats or high heels. It makes all shoes a bit more comfortable. I would strongly recommend this product.
I have wide feet and virtually no arch, so heels are naturally my "arch-nemesis." I can't stop with the puns. Anyway, I normally only wear them for special occasions so I didn't get to wear them out but I did wear them around the house, in the kitchen doing dishes, etc.The squishiness of the gel has a nice texture; It reminds me of those strapless stick-on bras with the cotton fronts (not the chicken cutlet kinds) and the criss cross drawstring in the middle. Anyway, the adhesive is sticky enough where you feel the product is sturdily in place but also removable if you misalign it. It's a bonus that it comes 2 per pack and that the nude color just happens to match my heels too, considering they're (open) toe.Now for the most important part, they are very comfortable! For myself and anybody else who may be a bit top heavy, the weight distribution tends to teeter a little more forward, placing even more pressure/pain on the ball of your feet, primarily between your big and second toes, leading to rubbing/friction, blisters and looking for the nearest place to sit. These are amazing and I can't wait to try them out more long-term like for the next wedding! Get itttttttt sisters.
I've had morton's neuromas for years, and I have metatarsal pads from the drug store, from shoe stores, and even from my podiatrist. These closely resemble the ones my podiatrist custom makes, but these are less expensive and work well. These metatarsal pads are the best over the counter pads I have found so far to releive my foot pain.
Let me just say that I was skeptical about these sponges. However I’ve been using them for approximately five days. There is a market difference in the ball of my feet. That is, I have no pain whatsoever. I wear heels every day for at least eight hours a day (I sit at a desLet me just say that I was skeptical about these sponges. However I’ve been using them for approximately five days. There is a marked difference in the ball of my feet. That is, I have no pain whatsoever. I Walk in heels almost every day. These sponges provide a cushion that just changes everything. Definitely worth trying. Also, the sponges are not bulky so you can wear them and shoes and boots as I have tried so far.
This gel pad really provides softness for the ball of a foot with a neuroma. Mine is quite swollen so it feels like I'm walking with something like a lump in ball of my shoe. I haven't been able to wear my normal 1.5" heels even though they aren't very high. The toe loop on this pad helps to keep the soft gel pad in place although it can slip around in looser shoes. It doesn't bother me at all. I also ordered this brand's style that goes around the whole foot and it stays in place better. But you see it in sandal style shoes so I'm using both versions depending on what shoes I'm wearing. I compared these gel pads to Walkize pads, but those weren't nearly soft enough. I also had a hard time palcing the Walkize pads so that their ridge didn't bother my toes. These pads are easy to wash, easy to wear, and you dont' have to worry about adhesive. They provide real relief from the pain of neuromas! I'm hoping if I wear them for a few months, the inflamed nerve will go down so I won't have to wear them forever. I may be back to review them further in 6 months or so!
For some time now I have sometimes very bad pain in the ball of my foot and I must say these help so much. I am alway in the go and my shoes just don’t help with comfort so once I put these in I noticed a complete difference.
I really do like these sleeves they relieve a lot of pressure off the balls of my feet. Which is really helpful in my day to day life. However they dont stay in place very long. Especially if I physically active. Or if I walk around a lot. They do take away a lot of the strain from wearing high heels. So that's definitely a plus it's enough that I will continue to use them just not if I'm gonna have an active day.
I really like these metatarsal pads because they are usable in many different shoes because they fit over your second toe on each foot. After you put them on your toes and put on socks, you are able to wear them with any sort of footwear and feel comfortable. If you have a high arch, and your feet ache all the time, these are a good treatment for that. The price is reasonable and they will last a long time because of the material. In addition to that they send you a pair that will fit into a pair of high heels, this free one has sticky that stays put in the shoe. I highly recommend this for your foot health and comfort.
So I wore it during a double shift at work and for the most part it was really comfortable. I run around and I'm on my feet all day so I decided to give it a try. Near the end of my shift my feet started to hurt, but it may have been from the constant rubbing between the foot support and my shoes. I have very bad feet (flat-footed and bunions) so I wanted to give this a try. All in all, I want to say it is a good product from how I've used it so far.
This metatarsal pad definitely works. It helped with my sesamoiditis and made walking more comfortable. The reason for the low rating is for durability. It was fine walking around at home with bare feet. But wearing it inside my sock to work, it only lasted two days before breaking. I got this because I've used other silicone pads that have a loop for your toe, but thats it. They never stayed in place and wrapped around my other toes, so I was hoping this one would be better. I had a lot of difficulty getting my boot socks on over it, shorter socks might better.
I Absolutely love these pads for my feet. I've received them yesterday by mail & have been wearing them since. They're very comfortable, & thin so you can wear them with any type of shoes. I was very shocked at the amount of relief I got from wearing them just a little of 24hrs . I will also recommend this to anyone I come in contact with including my own FAMILY that have feet issues!!!! That's how much confidence I really have in this product!!!! These pads are very Affordable & Definitely worth the purchase!!!!
I could not have ordered this at a better time! My feet are so sore because I wear heels to the office every day. I tried these on and the immediately took a lot of pressure off. Instead of feeling like I’m walking on needles on my hard wood floors after work it’s more like a cloud. What a treat! They’re made of a very soft gel like material which feels amazing. There are bonus ball of foot pads that fit right into your shoes. They’re a stronger gel material but also relieve a lot of pressure. They can be taken out, cleaned and used in as many shoes as you want.
I have nerve damaged on my left foot, the kind that can only be corrected overtime by using good shoe support. I ordered these hoping to ease the constant pain that concentrates on the ball of my feet. I have to say it takes a bit to get used to the feeling of something else on your shoe, but it's not super uncomfortable.After wearing them all day, I had no pain on my feet by nighttime, and after a couple days, my back felt better too.I liked that it's a stretchy fabric that goes on my feet, it has enough "give" but the pads don't move around once they're on. I tried the support that goes straight on your shoes before and I think this is a way better option.THEY DO TAKE A BIT OF TIME TO PROPERLY STRETCH! So don't give up on them after one day. I have small feet and by the end of the first day I had marks from the elastic, but after a few wears, they became more comfortable. It might take some time for them to stretch on bigger feet.Overall, I think these are good to ease foot pain. The quality seems really good and I believe they're gonna last. I plan to order some of the other products this brand has to test them out too.
The Metatarsal Foot Sleeves are lifesavers!! I suffer from neuropathy in my feet that often causes much pain. The foot sleeves snuggle right up to the balls on my feet and relieve the pressure and the pain better than anything else I have tried. The cushioning even makes it not only bearable, but comfortable, to walk around barefoot in my house (I have wood floors.)The sleeves are slim and comfy and can be worn with any type of shoe without causing the shoe to be too tight or to feel weird, like some foot sleeves/ braces tend to do. They are compact, lightweight, and extremely breathable, so even in the middle of the summer heat, they don’t cause feet to sweat.I would definitely purchase these again, if not to relieve my foot pain, but just for the added comfort they provide.
I really like these foot cushions. I was surprised to experience how comfortable they actually are. They were easy to insert inside my open toe heals. The stickiness on on the cushion was strong enough to hold in place inside my heels while I walked around. I have tried other cushions before but couldn't find ones that hold in place as good as these hold. I enjoy these foot cushions because I no longer have discomfort walking around in my shoes with high heels.
