Paul's Story: Martial Arts, Plantar Fasciitis & The X Brace

Paul's Story: Martial Arts, Plantar Fasciitis & The X Brace

June 23, 2015

I developed Plantar Fasciitis after several years of working out barefoot studying martial arts, combined with running in worn-out shoes. I resorted to wearing specially designed shoes for martial arts with inserts while working out, but there were two problems: 1. Shoes added extra weight to the end of my legs, messing with my balance. 2. Rotating required modifying my technique to less-than-ideal, due to increased friction from the soles. 

At only $30, I decided to try The X-Brace, to see if I could lose the shoes. I am ASTOUNDED at the results! 

Not only am I able to work out quite aggressively, but my balance has improved SO MUCH since being able to feel the floor with my feet again! Thanks for an incredibly simple, insightful product. I recommend it all the time to friends dealing with any foot issues!

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.

X brace

I bought for my daughter who has a heel spur. She is a support manager at a major retail store. She has assured me this brace has alleviated much of her pain.

Best Invention Ever

If you have plantar fasciatis and haven't found relief, then the x brace is for you. It's easy to wear and for me, it healed my pain almost instantly.


I have searched long and hard for something to alleviate foot pain. Finally!!!! I’ve worn my brace for three weeks and am almost pain free. Thank you.
