      Comments about R-Gear Road Runner Sports Less Impact Gel Heel Insert Insoles:

      I've owned this type of heel pads for 9 years or so, just updated to a new pair. They are a necessity for me since I've developed a heel spur. They keep me pain free and are very comfortable running long distances. I've never used them for anything else but suppose they would be great in any shoe. They are durable and last a long time.

        Comments about Road Runner Sports Less Impact Gel Heel Insert Insoles:

        Broke my hip when I tripped while running and needed a heel lift to offset leg length discrepancy. The rubber lifts purchased from the PT facility were causing knee pain. The gel lifts relieved the pain and are correcting the leg length.

            I don't know if it is an age thing. I am a 73 year-old female and purchased these inserts to replace my solid rubber heel shock absorbers, thinking that it was time that I did so because I purchased them a couple of years ago. I normally run 2 miles on track-turf at a gym and then do body exercises. I've been experiencing some knee pain while using the new pads, but today I could barely walk to the car from the gym. Maybe these pads are more beneficial for light walking impacts...at least, for me.

                I used heel gel pad inserts many years ago. I'm not sure why I stopped but I love how comfy these made my feet feel when I ran the first time with them. I have been having some heal pain and they felt so good. I will keep using them from now on.

                    There are better products. This one doesn't last very long and doesn't give much support. Does NOT stay put in shoe and can cling to your sock when you step out of shoe.

                      I have been struggling with achilles tendinitis for the last year. Nothing I was doing seemed to help. In just two weeks time my achilles tendinitis has improved considerably using the heel pads. Virtually no pain while I'm walking. I hope to be running again in about a month, while continuing to use the heel pads in all my shoes everyday going forward.

                        I use it in my running shoes and, so far, the sore heel/achilles tendon problem I've had for many years hasn't presented itself. However, I've also stopped running long distances on pavement, so there may not be a direct correlation. Whether there is or not, they feel great which is OK by me.

                            Bought a pair of these to help elevate my heel to take some pressure off my achilles tendon during training. They serve the purpose well and are comfortable. My only complaint is that they are heavy and my size large inserts weigh in at just over 1.4 oz each so my 10oz wave riders now tip the scales at over 11.4 ounces. Have another pair of inserts that elevate my heel the same amount but weigh just .7 oz so I tend to use them more for training to save weight.

                              I am nearly 50, female, and have been running my entire life. I gave myself Plantar Fasciitis a few years ago walking barefoot on concrete and tile for several months. I am a heel striker, heavy walker and should have known better but until the age of 44 did not have to worry about these (minor) aggravations.

                              Anyway, I ordered these Gel Heel Inserts to assist the healing process so I could resume my running and they really helped. I wear them in street shoes as well as my running shoes. I simply place them on top of the insole directly under my heel. I do take some care when putting my shoe on to make sure they are in the correct position, but once my foot is 'seated' I do not know they are there doing their job.

                              In anticipation of running my first 10k I ordered a second pair, but am still using my original pair from several years ago.

                              By the way, you can wash them with hand soap and water to renew the stickiness and remove the sock fuzz.

                                    These are great for casual shoes. I wear them in work shoes also.
