I use them in spikes - they give you a 5/6 mm lift which is perfect. Running shoes often have 6/8mm drop and suddenly running on spikes can strain the achilles as they have little or no drop. Only just start using them but itís looking promising.

Great insoles
Monday, 30 October 2017  |  Isabelle

Bought these in desperation as Achilles has been a problem for 18 months. Compared with cheaper ones they gave almost instant relief for flat walking. They also don't slip like cheaper types. Definitely worth investing in. Likely to get some

Spenco Ironman Performance Gel Heel Cups

Life is full of guess work but the heel cups may now be helping my son avoid a painful heel (probably Severs disease).

He returned to full training with his football team in September and very quickly had pain in his heel, diagnosed as a tendinitis where the tendon joins the heel bone. A vulnerable spot in growing boys from the 10 to 14 age range (apparently). The boys were training hard with lots of stop start running exercises. He tried to continue, including competitive matches but the pain was too much for me and he couldn't run. He had a week off training and returned with the heel cups. No more pain.

He does stretching of the foot before and after matches and rolls his foot over a tennis ball mid week for an hour on occasions (recommended) to work the muscles. Maybe the heal cups are giving him just that extra support?

They don't move in a football boot and stay firmly in position. They move in a flat pair of pumps/trainers but they are a wide fit. No problem as its the football boots he needs them for.
Definitely it is worth buying a pair and this company delivered in good time.
