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.
I’ve been using the brace for a couple of weeks now. It has been offering relief as advertised. Very happy with my purchase.
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.
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.
My 14 old son is an athlete and was recently diagnosed with Sever’s Disease. His pain was unbearable at times. He used ice baths and stretching as the doctor recommended, but no decrease in pain. His only options were continued use of anti-inflammatories which I was against or quitting this football season which he was against. After 2 weeks of using the bands he has little to no pain. They have also been a great help with his flat feet. Would 100% recommend.
Tried a dozen other supports including a $500.00 support my podiatrist sold me. This is the best,
easiest and most comfortable of them all. And it works!
So far it is working great for my daughter! She wears it during gymnastics and in her shoes at school sometimes. The only complaint I have is the heel loops keep slipping off which is quite the distraction/time waster during her gymnastics. I am tempted to cut the loops off and just use the band around her foot. Otherwise!! They really are amazing I am thinking of getting some for my planters fasciitis.
I've been suffering from plantar fasciitis for over a year I've gone through countless rolls of tape daily to keep my pain under control . The tape makes sticky stuff everywhere. Now I use the x-brace. I first ordered the wrong size and X brace was kind enough to replace it with the plain beige one. Blends in nicely and I wear it with summer shoes occasionally when fashion is a must. No one notices it because of the subtle color. Thank you Xbrace for making this condition easier to live with. Will definitely be ordering in the future.
When my heel starts to feel icky I look for my brace and wear it for a few hour and it gives me the relief like no other I have tried and I have bought quite a few others, thank you!
This brace healed my plantar fascitis and I now just feel more comfortable walking with it on than with it off! I am a tennis player and was in pain every time I hit the court. So thankful to have found the X Brace!
My daughter is 10 and is in competitive gymnastics. She has has such foot pain for months and months. We tried the x brace and she is doing remarkably better. She also has pt 2x a week but wears her x brace during floor and beam and inserts in her shoes and the pain is almost non existent now
Excellent product. My daughter does not train for gymnastics without her X Braces!
This is the second pair of braces we have ordered. They are for my 10 year old daughter. She has been suffering with planters fascitis for several years. After purchasing the first pair she had immediate relief. She wears them everyday and they have been life changing for her. We purchased a second pair so she would have a pair to wear when we were washing the others. I would definitely recommend trying The X Brace if you are suffering from this condition.
This is an excellent product. I would have given it 5 stars if the heel straps stayed in place. They tend to slowly make their way down my heels requiring me to pull them back up. Perhaps another strap attached to the left and right side of the heel strap that crosses over the ankle, going around the front of the foot/leg, would make it stay put. Like I said, the heel straps are slow to slip down, so it’s not a huge deal. But other than that, it’s a great product and is quite comfortable. It is giving me relief I hoped for.
