Our Gel Heel Guards are designed to quickly relieve pain from plantar fasciitis, gout, cracked heels, and other heel pain. These soft, supportive heel protectors will stay in place all day, providing gentle cushioning and pain relief.

Made from a soft, flexible gel, our Heel Guards are designed to move with your heel, keeping you supported and comfortable all day long. Our Guards are designed to be durable - and they’re easily washable with mild hand soap to keep your feet fresh.

We suggest these guards especially for pain relief from:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel Pain
  • Gout
  • Difficulty walking
  • Uncomfortable Footwear
  • & more!


Here are some of our favorite tips to make sure you’re getting the most out of your Gel Heel Guards:

  • We recommend using two hands when putting on or removing your Gel Heel Guards to avoid damaging or tearing the product.
  • Gel Heel Guards are perfect for active lifestyles and can be worn with any shoe or boot (even snowboarding boots)!
  • Our Guards can also be worn OVER socks or on bare feet - experiment with what works best for you and your situation.
  • Some customers recommend wearing two guards on one heel to relieve particularly sharp pains.
