Heel cups are inserted into the shoe and help provide shock absorption.
Most heel cups are made from a lightweight material - usually from
rubber or silicone gel - and provide comfort and relief for heel
pain. Due to the impact placed upon the cup, they are constructed
from long lasting materials, and are designed to be durable. Heel
cups can solve numerous health issues, most notable Plantar Fasciitis:
where a thick line of tissue runs along the heel and becomes inflamed.
For a heel cup to be effective, you may need to remove the insole
from your shoe. While heel cups may be durable, if they are used
daily, then they will need to be replaced every 12 months.
