Heel Cups & Cushions
Relieve heel pain and get a little pep into every step by wearing supportive Heel Cups shoe inserts. Traditional insoles or orthotics like the Pinnacle Orthotic Insoles run the entire length of the foot, whereas heel pads speak to its localized support at the heel. Constructed of silicone gel, the heel cushions absorb shock with every heel strike. The silicone material contours to the foot to be a comfortable addition to athletic shoes, boots, and dress shoes.
Who Can Benefit From Wearing Heel Cups
Heel cups for heel pain are ideal for active people on their feet for work or leisure. Heel pain can be from muscle fatigue, but it can be from an underlying condition such as heel spurs, stress fracture, or nerve irritation. Inflammation along the Achilles tendon or plantar fascia is a common reason for heel pain. Heel cups for plantar fasciitis stabilizes this thick ligament, reducing pressure and inflammation.
Heel pads for shoes also correct walking posture and gait. Two common walking posture issues are overpronation and supination. The cup's thicker outside walls prevent rolling inward or outward to improve posture while absorbing shock for increased comfort with every step.
The shoe cup can also be worn with a Silipos Achilles Heel Pad Sleeve to reduce friction at the back of the foot when the Achilles tendon is inflammed. The sleeve slips on like a brace and its padded heel with mineral oil protects the tendon and prevents walking friction.
