Save your feet, even in Flip-Flops, The X Brace can help!

Save your feet, even in Flip-Flops, The X Brace can help!

August 04, 2016

August is a truly a mixed bag of experiences. Soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the last 4 weeks of summertime can be overshadowed by the realization that school is around the corner and back to school shopping really needs to get done. So before responsibility takes over and while the sunshine and blue skies are perfect for time spent by the pool or enjoying a cool drink at your favorite outdoor café, let’s take a minute to talk about the favorite shoe of summer, the flip-flop. They not only fit everyone with ease but they’re absolutely the best answer for that quick trip down the street for ice-cream. However, they do have a big, some might say huge, drawback. They make your feet hurt when worn for more than 2 minutes!! The reasons for this are obvious but most often ignored. Wearing flip-flops regularly can stretch and strain the fascia, that little sheet of tissue that connects your heel bone to the base of your toes. This strain, referred to as Plantar Fasciitis, can mean severe heel pain. The great news is that The X Brace can save your feet right along with that last, amazing month of summer. Slip on a pair of X Braces, step into those favorite flip-flops and don’t miss one day of everything August has to offer.

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.
