These heel cups were exactly what I needed to prevent chafing on my feet. I use them in ballet flats that came up too high on my foot and rubbed it in the wrong way. By elevating my foot, the shoe falls in a good place and now they are comfortable to wear! The sticky part on the bottom is important. They prevent the heel cup from sliding. Try to put it in the right place the first time. I changed the position a few times on the first one I bought, making it lose its stickiness, so it slid in my shoe. The other one hadn't lost its stickiness and was working great, so I bought another pair! I'm using these in two pairs of shoes now and am very happy with them. Even if they eventually lose their stickiness, I would definitely buy them again.
I had to search online to figure out which side to put these insoles. With that, it would be very helpful to include a brief product instruction. I am a fast walker, and I am glad to see the adhesive is so far so good for one week since the insole is staying where it is supposed to be. I will see how it can last. The silicon is comfortable and I forget that I have another insole inside the shoes. It is also transparent and it optically disappears.
I teach P.E. full time, and so walk about 7 miles during the work day. My plantar fasciitis was causing me to literally limp half way through the day. I had tried all sorts of OTC inserts - none worked. My doctor said I needed cushion, not better arch support, so I tried these. They were AMAZING at reducing the pain; a real lifesaver! I seriously couldn't believe the difference they made. I have been using them for a year now. In the beginning, if I went barefoot or wore shoes without them for a few hours, the pain would come back. Now I can go a couple days without them before my feet hurt. I also keep a pair in my slippers, so I can be on my feet all day at home without pain. I have been using them for one year.Negatives: The ONLY negative is that they don't stick for long. I had to make circles of painter's tape to keep them from sliding around. However, I did switch them between a few pairs of tennis shoes in the beginning, so that probably caused the stick to wear out.
Im super impressed with these. They are great for instant back, leg, and knee pain. They have great adhesion and are super comfortable! They also helped me to stop walking ln the sides of my shoes. I definately reccomend these!
These gel heel inserts are thick enough to make a big difference! The gel is firm, but my heels sink into it enough to feel very good. They will never flatten because they're silicone! They stay in place when I'm wearing my shoes and walking, but move the minute I take my shoes off, so I have to reposition them every time I put my shoes on. That's not a big deal since I will be using them in other shoes too. They don't affect how my shoes fit overall...meaning they don't make my shoes too small or make my heels fall out. They work really well and are so soothing to my heels!
These fully eliminated my issue of walking more so on the side of my foot. They nearly fixed the ankle pain I was experiencing and some on my back pain from walking incorrectly. My only issue was/is that the adhesive on them isn’t the strongest and they come out on occasion when I take my shoes off. A little extra glue and the issue is fixed. Overall they work and do what I wanted.
These are much thicker than the normal heel cushions you find in the stores. They fit perfectly fine in my tennis shoes along with my hard plastic orthopedic inserts. They are helping relieve the pain in my heel.
I bought these to help with a recurrence of plantar fasciitis. They do seem to be helping although it has only been about a week and a half so far. The product was shipped when they said it would and arrived well packed, no issues there.
I like to read reviews about people that are at the very least suffering similar pain/needs as me. I have a bone spur under my Achilles and a partial torn Achilles. So when I say the ball of my foot and back of my heel are hurting daily - well you get that. These are a great relief to that pain. I can actually walk normally thanks to these inserts.
Amazing! I have plantar fasciitis, heel spur pain, neuropathy, so my feel are in pain all day every day. I don’t want to do steroid injections or take medications but the pain keeps me from waking sometimes. These are extremely comfortable and am able to be on my feet longer and they are comfortable
I bought these shoe inserts because I suffered a stroke last spring and am learning to walk again. While they are not meant to assist a foot drop, they do help by giving me a lift in my heel that is easily removable and extremely comfortable! I’m so glad to have found them!
Received my heel cups very quickly. I golf a lot and walk most of the course. I've been having a lot of trouble with a bone spur in my achilles heel and could barely walk by the end of the course. Immediately upon putting the heel cups in my shoes I had no more pain. Love walking now!
