1 people found this review helpfulI suddenly started having pain in the area of my Plantar Fasciitis –like in the heel of my foot – when I worked on my feet all day. Seeking relief, I bought four different heel-cushioning products from Amazon: MyFootSupply Gel Heel Pad Medium, Spenco Rx Heel Cushion, Sorbothane Heel Pad, and this product, Half Elevator Insole for Men - 1/2 inches (A pack of 2 Pairs).
Out of the four products I bought, the Half Elevator Insole was the best. Not only does this product cushion your heel and make you a little taller, but also you get TWO pairs for a very reasonable price! In addition, this insert is virtually invisible in most shoes, is comfortable, and stays in place nicely. I bought two more pairs of these. Five stars!
The Sorbothane Heel Pad stays in place nicely, and gives me a tiny bit more height, but doesn’t do anything to prevent my foot pain. If you have blue or purple shoe soles, this item blends in … otherwise it doesn’t. Three stars.
The Spenco Rx Heel Cushion does shift around a little, but it did help my plantar foot pain. It adds a little height to you as well. Four stars.
The MyFootSupply Gel Heel Pad was the most disappointing insert I purchased. Initially, it feels great and you might think that these inserts will help. After working on my feet all day, my Plantar hurt like heck with these inserts. I think that these gel heel pads concentrate your weight-per-square-inch to the heel of your feet. In addition, they slide around too much, requiring repositioning. Two stars.
