Does a Foot Brace help Plantar Fasciitis?

August 10, 2018

Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition generally caused by inflammation of either the Plantar Fascia or the connective tissue surrounding the tendons in the arch of the foot. It is most often associated with overpronation (feet rolling inward as you walk), but can also be brought on by high arches, flat feet, running or walking for excessive amounts of time, shoes that don’t fit well, or tight calf or Achilles’ tendon muscles.

Plantar Fasciitis can cause A LOT of pain, but fortunately, a foot brace can help provide relief where you need it the most. The X Brace, in particular, focuses its pressure on the connective tissues and tendons in the middle of your foot - that’s where most foot pain originates. The X Brace fits in any shoe, whether it’s a high heel or cross-trainer, and it can be taken with you from shoe to shoe or simply worn barefoot.

The X Brace was built by doctors in seven different sizes to offer relief to people of all ages. We asked our customers what they thought of The X Brace and if it helped them with Plantar Fasciitis. Check out their stories, The X Brace really works!

I have been fighting Plantar Fasciitis for over a year...I've worn a boot, seen the physician numerous times, had multiple physical therapy appointments to the tune of over $1000!! I finally decided to research online to see what I could find and found the X Brace! I've been wearing it for over a week now and my pain is completely gone!!! I have recommended your product to many friends who have this same diagnosis. They too have purchased the X Brace and are seeing results! Thank you from the bottom of my feet!!! They are loving this thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I followed somebody else referral and bought this items for my plantar fasciitis which I have for 2 years. FIRST TIME ever I am able to walk for all day with LESS pain
I bought The X Brace after searching for relief from Plantar Fasciitis. The pain noticeably subsided about 80% right after putting these braces on. The X Brace is an Excellent product.
I have just ordered my second pair of X Braces…. truly a miracle aid to my plantar fasciitis! They are comfortable and provide perfect arch support! I had my foot wrapped by a podiatrist when first diagnosed and found the wrapping comfortable but quite bulky. The X Brace provides the same support, is not bulky at all, and fits in my shoes with no problems. I’m very impressed with the X Brace as well as the information on the website regarding foot care and stretching exercises! Thank you!!!!!
My husband has been practically crippled from heel spurs & associated Plantar Fasciitis. The X Brace has him walking normally again with no pain.
After suffering through months of constant taping for plantar fasciitis, I wanted a break. I saw this brace and was worried it might not provide the support I wanted in the right places, but I was willing to give it a try. Also, I did not want the pain to return. After wearing it for two weeks, my worries are gone. My pain has not returned, and it is so easy to put on and wear. I would recommend this brace to anyone with plantar fasciitis.

This simple yet highly effective, elastic foot brace is the premier treatment for foot pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis, Sever’s Disease and Over-Pronation. The X Brace is made in the USA and is sold as a pair for $37.99.

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.
