Adam's Story: Baseball, Heel Pain <br>& The X Brace

Adam's Story: Baseball, Heel Pain
& The X Brace

September 22, 2015

I just wanted to let you know that we got my son's X Braces in on Wednesday ... Adam wore them for a couple of hours and said he felt little to no heel pain with them on... 
Today, Thursday, he had a baseball game ... Because he wasn't used to wearing the braces we were not going to put them on him for the game, but I put 1 brace on with his cleat and his other cleat without the brace... He said the foot with the brace felt really good so we took a chance and put both braces on under his socks so he could wear them while he played the game... 
He warmed up prior to the game and immediately I could tell a huge difference! ... He wasn't limping and was running faster than I had seen him run in a long time ... When the game started he played shortstop like a pro and didn't limp once! ...

In fact, I only saw him limp 1 time the entire game and that was after he finished running from 1st base all the way home... Even though he limped after this long, fast run, it was very little, nothing compared to how he used to limp... By the time his team took the field again he was fine and was not limping at all... 

After the game Adam said he felt no pain in his heels... I was SO happy to see him walking normal... It wasn't until we got home and he took a shower and took his braces off that he said he felt a bit a pain... 


I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much! ... I know it has only been 1 day with Adam using The X Brace but it made a world of difference... I am so hopeful that as he wears the braces for longer periods throughout the day that his pain will completely go away... 

Respectfully Grateful...

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.
