      Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics Injury Recovery Arch Support:

      Just 3 weeks prior to running the Twin Cities Marathon I developed heel pain. I visited the Doctor and local running stores and they told me the same thing, rest and no running. Since I was scheduled to run the marathon the time was already invested. I had to run. I limped through the marathon and my time was awful, and legs and feet ached. I stopped running and was in pain every day. My job as a pharmacist did not allow me to rest my feet. my plantar fascitis grew worse every day. I decided to try these arch supports and I was amazed at what a difference they made. I have orthotics and they work perfectly together. After the first week of wear I started running again pain free! I work 10 hour days on my feet --- pain free! I have now purchased 4 pair and can not go a day without them. I went from not running because of the pain to running 10 mile runs pain free. They have even helped with my IT band pain! Thanks a million Road Runner Sports I owe my well being to your products.

        I tried these out for the first time today. I wish I had known about these nine months ago when my plantar fasciitis began. Eventually it worsened to where my 40 miles a week of running became 0 miles a week.

        Now I'm on the road back.

        Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics Injury Recovery Arch Support:

        I work in hospitals on concrete floors all day. I have looked for YEARS for the perfect shoe to eliminate feet pain. Now I swear by these and have been using them for about 6yrs now. I buy several pairs at a time so i always have them on hand. I can't imagine my active lifestyle without these. I have a size 11 foot and I buy the mediums. I agree that sometimes the quality is not as great as it could be but over the last 6 yrs i may have had 2 pairs that weren't well made.

          I had a bad case of PF a few years ago -= that got better with lots of PT for strengthening hips & glutes. Read on some PF board about a guy who used these and it helped his PF. I have to say they do stabilize the arch - my heel hurts only when I stop my strengthening. They lasted fairly long too ~2 years

          Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics Injury Recovery Arch Support:

          Customer service was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, informative, and helped me to save for now and the future by signing up for the VIP. It was delivered very fast. I haven't had them long so I can't say how they will hold up, but my brother-in-law who is a pharmacist has had them for years. They have given him great relief. He wears them over socks, not bare feet. He also gets Keene footwear. That's all he wears.

          As I have BAD arches, both longitudinal and transverse. This product helps with the longitudinal (from below ball of foot to heel), but I need something for the transverse (from next to ball of foot to below little toe).

            I have been plagued with Plantar Fasciitis for the past two years. It was limiting my ability to run, stay healthy and in shape. The Pro Tech arch support has changed all that. I wear it regularly while at work, 8-10 hours a day. It provides the support needed. I wear a boot at night. The combination of both have eliminated my Plantar Fasciitis pain. I do not wear the arch support when running.

                Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics Injury Recovery Arch Support:

                This might sound weird but I'm actually not much of a runner.......I'm a skater. So posting on this website might seem foreign to some but I believe if there's anything we can both relate to, it's foot pain. Jumping down staircases and having flat feet is a horrible combination, which ultimately led to the arch in my right foot giving out. For weeks I could barely walk and I also work in the television industry where I'm on my feet for 10+ hours so that didn't help at all. The pain became excruciating and every insole I tried seemed to hurt it even more.

                One day I decided to stop by roadrunners in West Hills seeing if they had any insoles I haven't tried and discovered the pro-tec ankle support. Honestly in less than 6 days my foot pain was gone. I went from limping around the house to skating again with my friends. So basically if you suffer from plantar fasciitis, definitely try this product! You won't regret it.

                  The velcro strap will not hold the arch support in place. This is not worth the money. I bought a planter fasciitis arch support at a local retail store for less then $5. It works a lot better then Pro-Tech's arch support.

                      The main problem with these is that they do not contain any elastic. So to get them tight you really have to pull on them hard and even then then tend to slide down toward your toes. The strap really needs to be elastic to hold it in place better and grip you sock. I wouldn't recommend buying them

                      Bought these after getting plantar faciitis the first time training for Ironman. Pretty uncomfortable and difficult to squeeze in a shoe. Rock Tape provides just as much arch support, is comfortable inside a shoe, and believe it has helped me get past this injury.

                      Also got Lynco 405S inserts with metatarsal support inserts at the walking store for my running shoes. These and the Rock Tape got me back on the road nearly right away.

                      I have been suffering from plantar fasciitis for a few years and have tried the Stroudsburg sock, stretching, massaging, and orthotic shoe inserts. While they all have their merits, the Pro-Tech Athletics Arch Support has helped the most. I wear these arch supports daily (without any other support devices), but continue to use the orthotic inserts when I run (3-7 miles at a time).

                      After using these, my pain was reduced almost immediately. Be sure to wear them properly: on the correct foot, on the outside of your socks, and trim any excess velcro strap.

                      I like them becuase 1. they help!, 2. they stay put, and 3. I can wear them with shoes, slippers, sneakers, etc. - even barefoot should I choose to do so.

                      I didn't give them 5 stars because I'm not cured (yet!). I still have some discomfort, but the pain has been reduced to the point where I hardly notice it (there was a time when it was difficult to walk without limping!)

                      A great alternative to surgery!

                        Haven't had this product long but it is good for walking barefoot if you have foot problems and need arch support. If I have been very active and my feet need some extra cushion these are great for walking around the house. I also use them in my cross trainer for added support during circuit training. I don't use them in walking/running shoes. For that I use my RRS custom insoles.

                          I saw someone using these arch supports and got a recommendation and link to buy them online. I have used them for about one month, once or twice a week.
                          I use these arch supports for dance class, where I'm barefoot and without my shoes and orthotics. If I don't use them I have pain in my flat feet. If I use them I don't have the pain after class.

                              I ordered this product with moderate expectations, I was very pleasantly surprised on first use as they are comfortable and effective in my running shoes. I am recovering from plantars fasciitis and these are a big help. My wife has a pair, too, and is very satisfied with daily, continuous use in her shoes. She has had immediate relief from a long term plantars problem.

                              I bought this because I was tired of taping my feet all the time for my plantar fascitis. It is a great option to wear during the day, but doesn't offer the amount of support I need during a workout. It is easy to use. My problem is I have skinny feet so there is overage of strap, which I should probably cut off. Might work great for those who need mild/moderate support.

                              These are great if you suffer from PF - I won't run without them & if I know I'm going to be on my feet for a long period of time, I'll wear them then, too. Since I've been using these along with a boot at night,"Superfeet Insoles" & wearing Birkenstocks as my other shoes, I haven't had a PF reoccurance. Only complaint is how overpriced they are for a little piece of fabric & Velcro. I swore I was going to make my own, but here I am ordering my 3rd pair.

                                The first thing I loved about these arch supports is that they came in a pair. I have a friend who purchased a similar support and paid the same amount I did but for only one. I had an arch injury and wore this support 24/7 for a few weeks. Before purchasing this support I was very concerned that this injury would not heal because I am on my feet all day. It took some time (over a month)but I have no pain and only wear the support when I wear very flat shoes. I'm running again without pain.

                                  this is helpful, but slips within shoe. does provide relief for plantar fasc./fallen arches. NOTE TO RRS-this is not generally available or known to Podiatry specialists, and should be promoted for this problem (non-runners included)

                                  I have HIGH arches. I tried many different types of insoles, but none allowed for exactly the right placement for the support I want. These arch-support bands are fabulous. You can place the pad in just the right spot. I won't use anything else. I don't buy special insoles any longer. I use them for injury prevention so can't comment on injury recovery use.

                                    This seemed to work well. The only problem I had is that I live in Hawaii and wear sandals without socks everywhere. It doesn't say on the website but it says in the instructions to wear a sock under the strap. I don't wear socks so the sizing was off. It was too big. I tightened it as much as possible but it would have worked better in a smaller size.

I used to not be able to run more than 3 miles before my arch/heel pain became unbearable, and now I can just go and go.

                                            definently helps my plantar fasciitis but cannot wear them when running because they are too bulky. they also seem to wear out quickly if you wear them alot. But they are worth the money so I will be buying a 2nd pair.

                                            I have been wearing these while running for years (56-60 miles a week). To avoid blisters I cut the padding out of the strap (there used to be an option to buy it unpadded). I wear them over thorlo socks. No blister and no more arch pain.

                                            I began training for the LA Marathon this year, and I began experiencing pain in my feet, which was later confirmed to be Plantar Fasciitis. I bought these a couple of weeks, and I recommend them for everyday use, but not for running. I tried training in these and my feet blistered within the first 4 miles, and I had to take them out.

                                            Had several pairs over the years. They work better than any custom orthotic I've had and fit into everything I own. By the end of my first year in the military my feet had grown 1 1/2 sizes longer and 2 sizes wider due to lots of off-road running & carrying 80-110 lbs over long distances on very frequent occasions. My PF is BAD! When I wear these there is no problem. When I don't...wow! what pain. DOWN SIDE-I can't believe that they haven't figured out yet that by reversing the velcro it will work the same ... but NOT chew up the inside of your shoes/boots.

Now I swear by these and have been using them for about 6yrs now. I buy several pairs at a time so i always have them on hand. I can't imagine my active lifestyle without these. I have a size 11 foot and I buy the mediums. I agree that sometimes the quality is not as great as it could be but over the last 6 yrs i may have had 2 pairs that weren't well made.

                                            I've used these for years whenever my plantar fasciitis flares up. I'm on my second set now. I find it's wearing them at night that really is the most beneficial. I only wear them during the day if I can't wear my running shoes (like at work) and the pf is especially bad. Sometimes it takes several months, but eventually the pain is completely gone.

                                            I've tried several arch brace products and I think this is the best. Like others reviewers, they've helped reduce my plantar fasciitis. I wear them most of the time EXCEPT when running, including while sleeping. They come in a left and right, so they actually fit your foot. The padding is in the right area and has held up well after a month of steady use.

                                            This product did not do much for my plantar fasciitis. The small layer of cushioning on the bottom of the strap seemed to flatten out after 4-6 weeks, so it did not offer as much support. What doesn't work for one person may work for another and vice versa, so use your own discretion. Also, these come in left and right pairs, so if only one foot hurts, you'll only get use out of one of them.

I came across this product by chance in a running store at Grand Central Station in NYC while traveling and decided to give them a try. I'm now back running again pain free!

After long runs, the next day I usually teach and that means standing all day long. With these and a pair of Green Superfeet, my feet are totally comfortable.

                                            The main point is these actually solve the problem. After years of soft and then hard orthotics this is the first product to work for my p.f. Yes, they could use better quality control. The warranty replacement is fine if you live in San Diego. Poor stitching, etc. can be a much bigger hassle for mail order customers.

                                            I have used this product for 3-4 years to essentially cure my Plantar facitis. I wear them all the time. I rated the product low this time because the last pair I ordered fell apart just after a few weeks. The previous pairs have been very durable. I dug one of my old pairs out of a drawer and put them back to work. I hope this was only a manufacturing defect and not a sign of the product's future.

                                            After developing plantar fasciitis these were a tremendous help. I now wear them whenever I run and don't believe I'd still be running without them. I've tried other products and found these work best for me.

                                            I stopped running for two months hoping my plantar fasciitis would go away. Finally, I bought a pair of these and a night splint, and, together, they made it go away in about a week. I've not been wearing the brace while running, just under work shoes, and it seems to have made a huge difference.

                                            Wore 24 hours a day during recovery from plantar faciitis. Combined with heat and ice this device made live bearable. Velcro strap needed to be trimmed. Too bad they are sold only in pairs. Still a best buy for me!
