Don’t Let Heel Pain Stop Your Gymnast

Don’t Let Heel Pain Stop Your Gymnast

June 24, 2013

Heel pain is impossible for young athletes to deal with. They’re on their feet constantly and when heel pain strikes, it can be devastating for them. Just last night we had a young gymnast come up to us in the gym that had landed hard on a back tuck . . . she could barely walk. It was so very sad. So we got her set up with The X Brace and she was back at it right away! They can’t run, jump, or function. They can’t even walk well. The great thing is, you can fix it!

The X Brace, arch support for barefoot athletes, was designed to help young athletes not only to immediately get rid of heel pain, but help them with a long term solution to keep heel pain away forever!

You see, supporting the arch has been proven to decrease the effects of arch pain in young athletes!

It’s an easy fix, and The X Brace is incredibly convenient in the gym or the dance center. The young athlete doesn’t have to worry about messing with tape and prewrap . . . which takes way too much time away from gym time to begin with.

Great product

My daughter uses The X Brace everyday and she is experiencing good improvements with pain management. She is being able to train with less pain.

Purchased from Japan.


I live in Japan, so I was expecting quite a delay in receiving my package, but it came within a week. Very quick service and the X Brace team even emailed me to make sure I had received it and was able to use it.


As far as the X Brace goes, its really great! I was actually shocked at how simple/small the design was. I’m usually skeptical of products claiming how “great they are” and how “even athletes recommend” but these braces have gone above and beyond expectation. I can’t even tell I have them on when I’m wearing them. They helped my pain almost instantly. ( my pain was severe so it took a day... lol) it’s easier to walk, run , and even stand now. I’ve been using them for about 3 weeks and even when I do not have them on, I can see the difference in my walking patterns as well as experience little to no pain.

They are VERY easy to clean. Just hand wash using soap and water and hang them to dry at night before you go to bed. They are always nice and clean, and dry when I wake up. I haven’t had to emergency clean and dry yet but the inside of the straps have small rubber grips, therefore I would caution against putting them in the dryer or using any form of artificial heat to dry them.


They might look expensive at first glance but the X Brace is completely worth it. I strongly recommend this product to anyone suffering from over-pronation. I will be buying another pair very soon just in case something happens to the ones Im currently wearing. Overall, I’m just happy to be able to walk pain free again.


Amazing, the pain had gone away from my feet. I tested it and didn't wear them for a few days and the pain returned. I started to wear them again and the pain disappeared. Extremely happy with the purchase.

So far so good

I’ve been using the brace for a couple of weeks now. It has been offering relief as advertised. Very happy with my purchase.
