What do I get?

You'll receive four soft, flexible, breathable TPE gel heel protectors that wrap around your heel, cushioning your aching foot, even while wearing shoes or boots. Feel the relief from repetitive foot pain from the first step you take!

How do I use them?

Just stretch the soft material around your foot, and pull on like a shoe, hugging your heel. Put on your socks (snug-fitting socks, like compression socks, work especially well), then a looser shoe so you’ve got enough space to avoid squishing your foot, and you're ready to go! Men and women will feel fast relief from heel pain, whether you're wearing boots or tennis shoes!

How do I take care of them?

Our Gel heel guards are easy to clean and always at the ready for you - With just a little soap and water, quickly and easily wash our heel cups by hand, air dry, and go! Avoid over-stretching and exposure to sunlight to prevent discoloration or degrading the material so you can reuse again and again! By offering better materials with higher convenience, we make foot care quick, easy, and accessible!

Don't suffer in silence any longer. Our orthotic, cushioning supports will help you get back on your feet and back to doing the things you love.

Provides symptomatic relief for:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel pain

    These work

    i have a heal spur that sometimes hurts terribly. I put one of these on and it helps so much. Most days i dont have pain at all. I have worn the same one for a few months and it still fits like the first day. Would definitely would recommend.
