I hoped this would help my cracked heels. It’s less effective than wearing plastic bags to bed. They break easily and make the skin on top of my foot itch like mad. Not impressed. Save your money and use recycled plastic bags instead.
I was told my fat pass on my heel are about half as fat as the average person, and I was getting heel spurs as a result. I don’t know about the heel spurs, because I don’t have any new scans, but these definitely help elevate the pain and I wear them every day. I do wish they offered them even a little thicker, but wearing two isn’t comfortable - it’s too restrictive. I have size 9-9.5 shoe and am of average weight for my height, and they fit nicely.
I bruised my heal and walking was pure missery. I got these to wear during the day for the moments when you absolutely have to get up to go to the bathroom. I don’t think my foot would have recovered as quickly without them. Added bonus, they’re washable, so they don’t get gross. I really appreciate whoever made these.
I purchased due to dry cracked heals. I’ve been using them for only a few days but I already see an improvement. I soak my feet, apply a moisturizer, put the silicone pads on, then a pair of socks. I’m using them while I sleep. Without the socks the get stuck to the sheets. They are very stretchy and easy to clean with soap and water.
Sleeves kept sliding down, needed to be a little higher up on achilles to stay in place. Quality of material was not great either. Wore a pair of sleeves at night and woke up with 1 ripped and useless. Tried again a few nights later with the same result. I've purchased a different brand in the past and didn't have this problem. Unfortunately, I waited too long to try these sleeves and return window has closed or I'd be sending them back.
I don't have petite feet, and these are stretchy and soft enough to get over my size 8 X-wides without causing 'dents' in my skin. They're somewhat cool, and also have good 'grip' for my iffy balance on hard floors. They do make skin sort of 'ball up' in very tiny bits, to be showered away. I'm ordering more.
The Gel Heel Sleeves are comfortable on but do slip around if you walk in them. At night I put lotion or cream on my heels then wear the sleeves over the cream to sleep. In the morning my heels are soft and any pain from cracks is gone.
I purchased these to help alleviate heel pain. They are soft and cool when you slip them on. Unfortunately they do not help with my pain. I have discovered that I need something with a cup at the heel to ease the pain.
Bought these because I had a sore back heel from my walking shoes rubbing when I used the treadmill. Put a little foot cream on my heel and used the pad. After a few days my heel felt better. You have to take some time putting socks over the pad as it will easily bunch up and get tangled in the sock and also when putting on your shoes. It was worth the time. I like em.
