To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These are nice for cracked heels but they are not comfortable to walk on if that is your intention. The silicone feels weird, everything sticks to it and they move around when you walk on them. I just wear to them to bed though and they work great for that. They do soften your heels (especially if you moisturize before you put them on) and are the best product I have found for that. I couldn't wear them with shoes or walk around with them on though, which is what I was hoping to be able to do as an all day kind of heel treatment.
Overall, this was a great purchase. They came five pairs in a pack as advertised. I brought these for my dad and I. My dad has bone spurns on his heels and walking was becoming very uncomfortable for him. Using one pair of these didn’t work for him but two pairs did. He puts on one pair, puts on socks, and then puts on an additonal pair on top of the socks. He’s pretty happy with them now. I use these to manage calluses on my heels. Everynight after I use the pumice stone, I put these on with a bit of moisturer and leave them on overnight. My heels are soft and smooth by the next morning. My only complaint is that after washing these they get very sticky and feel gross even after leaving them to dry for 2 days. I recall someone saying to use powder on them after washing, so I’ll try that next time.
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.
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.
