These are amazing!!! I’m a personal trainer/yoga teacher so taking care of my feet is extremely important for my livelihood. I’ve been looking everywhere for the right padding in my high heel shoes. Most inserts either shift the balance at the mound of my big toe causing a imbalance, or are too thick and cram my toes at the bottom. These are the perfect balance! Buying a pair for each of my heels :) NOTE: I have only worn these trying them on inside my shoes at home to prepare for going out. I will make sure to update this review if anything changes or I experience any discomfort.
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.
I just want to say thank you for your wonderful product. I had seen a PT for months and that was no help so I looked at reviews of your product and from that I thought I would give them a try and I am glad I did. The only thing I personally don’t care for is the adhesive. I want to be able to move the product from shoe to shoe and not have them stick in one specific shoe. The product is awesome and has taken away my pain. With that said about The adhesive I just have left in on the pad and have been able to still move it from shoe to shoe. If the plastic moves I just replace it where it should be. Thank you for at last comfort for my foot
These.. are such a game changer in heels. I didn’t expect it to work so well but it does! Now I can wear heels comfortably!!
Let me begging by saying, this product is truly remarkable. I used the foot pads on a pair of heels I had worn previously which left me with significant foot pain. I purposely waited until yesterday to wear them for a party. Needless to say, I was dancing 2-3 hrs straight without any discomfort not to mention standing on my feet for another 2 hrs. I am highly satisfied and will keep purchasing some more!
These are great. No show, and very comfy. I love how they stay on and not slide around.
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!!! :)
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.
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.
Feels so good on my feet I stand for longs hours and my feet are on fire by the end of the day but I noticed a difference right any after wearing these for only a few days I will be ordering more for sure my feet are like brand new !
I work in construction where I stand outside all day and I added these to my work boots and usually around 2-3pm I get pain in my heels I wore this for the first time and my feet didn’t hurt me all day. I usually get sore around the mid of my foot when I get home and with this it’s been 3 days of using it and I haven’t had any issues! Application was easy too!
Bought these because I work on my feet 12 hour days in a vet clinic. No matter what shoes I wear, I'm dying by closing. I've wore this a couple days now and its soooo much better! Takes some getting used to, but definately worth it!!!
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.
At first I thought the arch would be too thin, but I had feared one that was too pronounced would cause discomfort. I have only worn these for a couple of days, but I am just aware of the arch support, nothing too drastic. I hope they are enough. The slip on is well made, and thin enough to work with my shoes without causes tightness.
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 would be perfect for a smaller person. I am a very large woman and I put alot of weight on my feet and they just didnt provide all the comfort I was looking for. Although it provided much relief on that area in my foot only for a short period because of all the weight i have to carry around. I think for a much lighter person this would be very beneficial fully.
I have bought many cushions/inserts for heels in the past but they have either been too thin or not comfortable enough. These are the perfect combination of comfort and stability. The material is really soft and stays in place. It offers great support to the balls of your feet. I put a pair in my work heels and another in some wedges. They did great in both styles. I love that they kept my feet from sliding down through my open toe wedges. Definitely recommend!
I bought these for some heels I planned on wearing while as a bridesmaid in a wedding. Of course I forgot to put them in and couldn’t test them out so my mother did! She loves them! She has issues with her feet and put them in her boots. The only thing I wish is that they lasted longer. My mom shared that they gave out support within 30 days.
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 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 definitely recommend this product! The sleeves were a little uncomfortable at first but that was mainly because I'm picky about things being on my feet. They also work wonders on someone who is flat footed and on their feet a lot during the day. I do a lot of jumping in/out of a box truck and the gel inserts absorb the shock which would normally hurt my knees. Being able to wear these with sandals is also a major plus!
After using it for several weeks, my foot is not in pain anymore. It can be easily attached and detached between shoes.
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 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.
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!
Inexpensive and has really helped. Recommended by my physical therapist! Good choice! And so easy to clean and reuse over and over!
Been wearing so much heels,and it is killing my foot,so I found this metatarsal pad online and the price is right so I got it.In a day I got it!I have to say that are the most comfortable doors pad ever!I walk around downtown Nashville for maybe hour or so with my heels,it was amazing I can’t tell you how much I love to wear it,be honest they are the best,just get it don’t think about it.Your feet are more important than those heels!😊
I bought these for my husband. He’s on his feet all day with our three small children and then all night as a bartender. He was skeptical and laughed at me when I gave them to him. They took a bit of getting used to, but he reported after night one that they were great. He voluntarily wore them every night after that. He said they give him comfort he didn’t even know he was missing, which is pretty high praise from him! I’m waiting to see how they hold up to his heavy use, but so far, it’s been a great buy!!
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 loves them
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.
I would have given these a 5-star rating, but the stitching was a little too tight on my right foot pinky toe. It was kind of cutting into my pinky toe. I don't consider myself having big or wide feet. I tried adjusting the sleeve by pulling it up my foot more, but it didn't really help. Otherwise, they really help the pain in the ball of my foot.
Generally I wait a bit longer to do a review but I recieved these foot pads today just in time for an event I had to attend with my daughter. I usually wear sandals because when I walk in arched shoes I tend to get alot of pain and tension in my front pads due to my nerve damage from the preassure and weight on the front of my foot. I put these pads in and the gel created a cushion relieving some of the preassure from walking in more formal shoes. I am very happy with the product because it was nice to be able to dress nicely with appropriate foot attire without having to arrive home only to feep throbbing in my feet from the preassure. And I even got a bonus second set in this box!
After using this, I gave the free pads to my sister who is an RN. These are perfect for people who are on their feet all the time. I used it when I went to a Renaissance Festival on a very hot day in AZ. It’s very soft I wasn’t even bothered by it when wearing my shoes. I also like that it feels cool on your feet which gives that relaxing feel especially after several hours of walking.
This is a necessity if you have bunions and walking is painful. They easily slip in your shoe, then all you can hear is ahhh ! Great product.
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.
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 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!
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.
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!
These work better than any other pad for the ball of the foot I have tried. Good price, good product.
Very good product ! At first I stuck them on the wrong way and thought “Wait this doesn’t feel right” and then turned them around and the fit and feel was perfect ! Easy to peel off and easy to stick right on the shoe. No slip either, these cushions stay in place. Perfect to wear with high heels to a wedding! You will be comfortable and no sore feet or blisters at the end of the night ! Thank you Calceus😊
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! )
Foot cushions are just that! Don't be afraid to use in shoes besides heels, they are just as useful in nearly all shoe types. Thickness takes awhile to get used to, but it really does help my feet feel more supported. I have some heels where I don't necessarily need comfort support for that region of my foot, but my feet slide down. These helped prevent my feet from sliding in heels. Helpful that they are reusable!
These Metatarsal Pads work like "magic" to my wife's feet. She has had some blisters and calluses on her feet, but those blisters and calluses have been decreasing since she's wearing these pads. She complains less and less every day now. The pads don't smell even after long use and they can be washed with warm water and soap to maintain cleanliness before future use. We are convinced enough that these pads are made of high-quality medical grade material. I may buy them again as a gift because they are really great quality metatarsal pads.
I like that the adhesive is strong but that is also a con because you can easily move from one pair to another. It does come with two sets though. I would say it’s good if you have a certain pair you wear a lot. Also, placement is very important. Test that before removing the sticky part. it helps but could stand to be thicker.
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 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.
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.
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.
