Correct Application Procedure and Instructions
In order to get the most out of your gel pads, we recommend taking some care when putting on your socks and shoes so as not to dislodge the pads and prevent proper usage. Please follow the instructions below to ensure your gel pad stays in place during the day:
- Place the ring of the pad around the central toe on the affected foot
- Ensure the toe ring is secure and in place before adjusting the pad to protect the correct area of your sole
- Expand your sock with both hands to create a wide hole and place your foot all the way inside, taking care to not dislodge the pad
- Untie your laces fully and place your foot carefully inside your shoes
About the Pro11 Gel Metatarsal Pads
These discreet and comfortable metatarsal pads remain in place by encircling the second toe. They absorb shock, reduce pressure on the metatarsal head, and protect the balls of the feet from injury.
The Gel Metatarsal Pads absorb shock when the foot makes contact with a hard surface - whether you are walking, jogging, running or landing - reducing the impact to your metatarsal area. This reduces pain and fatigue in forefoot and protects the metatarsals from injury.
Standing for long periods of time, particularly on a hard surface or in high heels, can cause a burning sensation in the ball of the foot. The Gel Metatarsal Pad remedies this by shifting pressure from the metatarsal head to the metatarsal shaft and surrounding tissue. This helps to relieve pressure, and therefore reduce pain, in the metatarsal head.
One Size Fits Most
This pair of Gel Metatarsal Pads is unisex and available in one size to fit most customers. The pads are suitable for use in most closed shoe styles, including loafers, trainers, courts and casual shoes.
Please note that the Gel Metatarsal Pads are latex-free, and can therefore be used by people with allergies to latex.
