Putting On The X Brace: A Handy Video Guide

Putting On The X Brace: A Handy Video Guide

January 23, 2018

The X Brace is a great foot brace designed to relieve any foot pain you may have from plantar fasciitis, overpronation, or Sever’s Disease. To get the most out of the brace however, you’ll want to make sure you get the right size and know how to put it on properly. If you haven’t already done so, head on over to our sizing tool to see what size will work for you.

Once you have The X Brace, you’re going to slide the main strap (the thicker one) on your foot like you would a sock. You’ll stop sliding it once it gets to just below the ball of your foot. When you do this, make sure the smaller, looped strap is hanging off the bottom of your foot.

Now, take the looped strap, make sure it crosses over the bottom of your feet (forming the “X”) and then hook it on your back heel. The X should be placed so it supports your arches. After correctly putting on The X Brace for the first time, it will be as quick and easy as putting on a pair of socks!



There will be a break-in period for The X Brace. For the first one to two weeks, you may experience a bit of foot cramping. This is completely normal since the foot muscles are adapting to better form in the arches. If the pain gets to be too bad during the break-in period, take off the brace, and allow it to rest for 15 minutes before putting it back on.

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.
