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!
After using it for several weeks, my foot is not in pain anymore. It can be easily attached and detached between shoes.
These are extremely soft. Silky soft rubber, that’s thin enough to fit within you shoe comfortably but has enough cushion/support to do what the product is intended for. The rubber is very stretchy, so it should fit all foot and toe sizes. Very easy to put on. The extra heel support was a pleasant surprise; they are clear with a bit of cushion in the middle (refer to photos). The only con is that the product has some power like residue on it that as you can see on the last photo, covered my fingers after touching them for a few minutes. I’m sure this can be remedied with a quick sink rinse and pat down though. Definitely excited to try them on a night out in town to see how well they hold up! Will update review once I do!
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 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.
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😊
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.
I loves them
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 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.
I like them. I would definitely use these next time I wear heels, even if it’s not a perfect fit, it will definitely keep my feet more comfortable.
Easy to use and very comfortable
Really comfy I was only expecting two pieces for the balls of my feet but I got parts for the heels as well, a welcome surprise. I have already put the heel part in my boot and tried the metatarsal part it’s super comfy
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!
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!
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!
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
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.
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 am pleased with the metatarsal pads. I like that I can wear them with all my shoes. I also like that they stay in place without glue.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Got these for my mom. She's on her feet all day in a hot factory. She said they really help her. She's not in so much pain when she gets home.
These are great. No show, and very comfy. I love how they stay on and not slide around.
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.
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.
These foot pads are made with high quality material and make walking, standing, and running a lot more comfortable. It is better for your posture and foot health to use a product like this. This is a good gift to give to someone that has to be on their feet for hours a day at work. I love how soft and stretchy they are and how they are washable. I know they will last a long time if cared for properly. The product was packages nicely and arrived quickly.
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!
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.
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.
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!😊
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.
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.
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!
Inexpensive and has really helped. Recommended by my physical therapist! Good choice! And so easy to clean and reuse over and over!
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 !
arrived as advertised except with a slight discoloration, which doesn't bother me as it doesn't appear dirty- strong adhesive without seeming like it will peel my sole off if I wanted to remove this, although I don't recommend to re-adhere this to another shoe and expect the same initial stickiness results- stays in place after first use, although I'm not sure how this will last with longterm wear or traveling in high heat to affect the glue- great customer service
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.
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!!
I like what it is supposed to provide-comfort. I have pain in the areas under my toes but I almost feel like the cushion is too much-too high. The wraps made my smaller toes feel better but made my big toe on each foot sore and stiff after only a few minutes of wear. My daughter tried and thinks they are super comfy and loves them!! She will use them. I would recommend this product if you have heel or ach pain as she does but not sure it will help if your issue is under toe pain like my issue. #item provided free to sample but didn’t affect my opinion. They don’t work for me but can for you!
These work better than any other pad for the ball of the foot I have tried. Good price, good product.
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.
My hips and lower back hurt constantly, because I naturally walk on my toes. I received these this morning, and immediately started using them. I only gave 4 stars for comfort because it feels a little awkward having a pad under the balls of your feet, and the toe ring is pretty large, so it kind of bunches up, and allows the pad to slide a bit. I'm thinking about sizing them right where I need them to be, with a pair of cuticle scissors and a tiny bit of glue. I've been using them since they came, and although there might be a slight difference in my hip pain, I cannot say for aure if they are the reason, yet. I do want to say, that there IS a difference in my legs, mainly the backs of my thighs, and calves, as well as my feet. I will update my review after a while to let you guys know if the pain keeps getting better, or not, with daily use. I will also rate how well they hold up at that time. All in all, so far, so good. Also the gel heel pads, that I didn't even know were included, are adhesive, and really comfortable without being too thick.
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 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.
