The X Brace Was My Answer for Painful, Burning Feet!

The X Brace Was My Answer for Painful, Burning Feet!

October 22, 2014

Lacrosse was my dream; lacrosse was my life!  Rain or shine I was out there on the field practicing the sport I loved. I felt invincible; nothing could stop me.  I was wrong.

It started as a slow aching pain in the heels of my feet, which eventually led to an unbearable burning pain preventing me from playing the sport I loved.

Running became the most dreaded part of practice as every corner cut led to the ignition of a burning fire in my feet. I decided to seek a solution which included new shoes and every advanced ankle bracelet on the market.  Nothing would rid my feet of the pain!!

One day my father brought home these small, elastic bands called The X Brace. I couldn’t help but laugh, “You seriously think this thing is going to help?”!

He asked for me give it a try and with a lot of serious doubts, I decided why not – I’ve tried everything else.  The following day at practice after running a tedious warm up I noticed the pain in my foot was minimal. Placebo I thought. There is no way this little brace is actually helping.

I finished practice with little discomfort and decided I needed to give this X Brace a serious chance.  The next practice resulted exactly as the day before as the pain was minimal. After wearing at practice for a week all my pain had dissipated.

I was able to run at my full potential once again!! I never would have believed such a simple brace would be the solution to my problem.

The brace is small, comfortable and after five minutes you will completely forget you are even wearing it.  Anyone experiencing similar pain to me should know there is a quick fix. The X-Brace changed my life, and it can easily change your life too!

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.
