Who Can Benefit from Using a Gel Achilles Heel Pad Sleeve?

The heel pad sleeve is an open-toed sleeve that slips over the foot to help cushion, comfort and protect the Achilles tendon area of the foot. As such, the sleeve is suitable for anyone who suffers from pain in this area of their foot, whether it is Achilles Tendinitis or just an ache from where the area has been strained for too long.

Which Shoe Styles Are Suitable?

Because the Achilles Tendinitis Heel Sleeve fits snug against the skin, it's suitable for use with a wide range of shoe styles. These include:

  • Trainers
  • Work Boots
  • Slippers
  • Football Boots
  • Plimsoles
  • Rugby Boots
  • Dress Shoes
  • Casual Shoes

Lightweight, Toeless Design

The Silipos Heel Sleeve is a lightweight, toeless sleeve that chiefly provides support to the Achilles area of the foot.  The sleeve is coated in a medical grade oil that helps to moisturise and soften the skin, encouraging healing by promoting a healthy foot.

What Is This Gel All About?

So often when a plaster or cast is applied, the skin is left to dry out and crack underneath. The gel that is so often mentioned on Silipos products is a medically approved healing solution designed to keep the skin underneath the sleeve hydrated, soft and supple.

Light Compression Rapidly Increases Healing 

The sleeve works by providing gentle compression which helps ease the pressure around the heel, which is often inflamed when discomfort occurs. The sleeve also helps to protect the heel from pressure and impact in the first place, stopping any further issues before they even start.

This ease of pressure helps to reduce the amount of pain caused by irregular heel bumps, making it a great idea for footballers, gymnasts and runners, who all experience shock and impact.

How Do I Correctly Clean My Gel Sleeve?

While the Silipos Gel Sleeve is suitable for machine washing, frequent washing will cause the sleeve to deteriorate quicker. For best results, we recommend that you hand wash your sleeve with a mild detergent.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.

Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.

Haglund's deformity
27 January 2020  |  Dilwyn

These worked great in my golf shoes due to Haglund's deformity (no more blisters). Only slight issue the gel extends under the heel, (I presume for other conditions) strange feeling at fist but you do get used to it.

Gives a lot of comfort.
05 July 2017  |  Alison

I have achilles tendonitis and am very surprised by how efficient this product is. The sleeve is light to wear under an ankle support sock and the gel is cool and soothing. It prevents the heel of your shoe rubbing. I would definitely recommend.
