The product works great, but it took me about 8-10 times moving it to find the right spot to help with my neuroma. I could peel the pad off and replace it several times. I have other insoles in my shoes, not the ones that came with my shoes, so perhaps the material releases the pad easier.

These are great. I started feeling pain on my left metatarsal area about 2 weeks ago. It got to the point that I had to stop in the middle of a run. I bought some Dr. Schulz pads at the grossery store but the cushioning was not enough--obvoiusly not made for running. I ran in these today and felt great. The pain is still there because of my injury, but running with these pads made it bearable--it did not get worse as I ran.

Metatarsalgia hit my left foot during a summer race. After a couple of months of trying other treatments, I finally tried these. It's been two months and 300 miles and I'm very happy with them. I received a little immediate relief, and progress has been steady. Today I have no pain when I run, but still have some residual numbness. I'm a 6'2" 165 lb. 35 mi/wk runner with high flexible arches in 4E Kayanos.

Really relieves metatarsal pain

5

I received metatarsal pads from my podiatrist but they did not give enough relief positioned under insoles. When I found these that go on top of the insole I had to try. Getting the position right is key, but once I did my foot felt so much better I never noticed them. I'm running again for the first time in months and my pain is completely gone so long as I use these in both sport and general foot wear. I love that they can even be placed on sandals. Highly recommend.

Fell Apart ;(

Wore the pads on only the left foot that hurt. So I put one in two pairs of shoes. By the SECOND time wearing the shoe, the pad completely slid off the sticky part that attached to the insole. I was 4 miles from home and the damage was done by then- I had a big blister and chafing from the misplaced pad!! Ouch!! I don't know if I got a defective pair, or all of them fall apart, but I'm going to try the replacement pair UNDER the insole, not the top.

Great cushion. You have to place it correctly on the insole on the first try or it's impossible to peel off. It feels good on my right insole, but I messed it up on my left and was very uncomfortable. I peeled off the pad and ruined it. I have to buy another set.

Didn't even make it through one run

I bought these because of Metatarsal pain in my foot while running. Was hoping these would cushion the area, but felt 100% worse! I didn't even make it 3 miles before I had to stop, mid-run and take them out. They were incredibly painful and felt like running with a rock in my shoe.

Impressed so far!

I've struggled with foot pain for several years now each time I try to increase my mileage. So far, I've run every other day pain free. If this keeps up, I'm going to order 10 more packages just to make sure I always have them!

Cushion was fine for me. The picture is off a little, you need to position the pad just behind your met heads to feel the support. These took the pressure off my mortons toe.

Made sure I placed it behind metatarsal, not on it. Worked great!

Product functions as advertised. The supports are preventing flareups of Morton's Neuroma. However, I had considerable difficulty placing them correctly. A little guidance in the packaging would have been helpful.

Got Neuroma

once I got the pad in the right spot worked great for my neuroma. I have custom orthotics from a pediatrists and this works nearly the same as my custom one does...great product.

These pads seem to have resolved the hot spot I was getting on the ball of my foot. Once I figured out how to place them effectively that is. I had to search the internet to find the proper placement info as it wasn't included in the packaging or on the website.

I gave these a try. They flattened out and felt just like running on rocks. No cushion. I have better luck cutting my own pads out of old foam insoles and using double backed tape to hold them in place.
