I've had this for a week and it's really helping me walk in the morning. I had to work up to wearing it overnight, it can get a bit uncomfortable in the beginning. If you get this, don't be discouraged in the beginning. It keeps my foot flexed all night and I can get out of bed with relatively minimal pain compared to before. I have pain in my heel and Achilles. My doctor recommended stretches and exercises so I'm using this as a bonus. I think wearing this overnight has helped so much and you can adjust the angle of your stretch. I have hardwood floors and the bottom of the brace has a rubber grip which makes walking fine. If this one wears out, I'd definitely buy another.
The best one I've found. You won't find any that are comfortable but this one gave me the least aggravation. It's fairly cool on your foot. It is hard to get on for a 74-year-old, especially on the right foot as the buckles are on the outside of that foot. It didn't do any harm to my sheets but at a hotel, it snagged the material with the velcro.
I’ve developed plantar fasciitis almost overnight 3 months ago! And I’ve tried so many exercises to help but nothing helped! This boot almost immediately took my pain away and I can now stand to cook my family of 7 a meal without any pain at all! Absolutely love this thing! Hopefully, it will heal in due time and I won’t need the boot or shots or surgery! We’ll see.
I suffer from plantar fasciitis so when I get up in the morning my feet ache for 5-10 minutes. I bought these to try and wow...I got out of bed the first morning and the pain wasn't there! I couldn't believe it was actually not there after wearing this for one night. Obviously, it didn't cure it but it sure was nice to walk without pain.
I've tried several brands of compression sleeves to help with plantar fasciitis pain and these are by far the best! I used to wear a heavy plastic boot to bed to keep my foot straight and prevent my tendon from shrinking, but would wake during the night in a panic from the discomfort and weight of the boot, ripping it off. I've replaced the boot with these fantastic compression sleeves and now have peaceful nights sleep, and greatly reduced morning pain.
