WILL THE X BRACE FIT IN MY SHOE? Absolutely. The X Brace’s low-profile design will fit into any shoe or cleat, and is comfortable to wear with any kind of footwear, flip-flops and high heels included.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE THE X BRACE INSTEAD OF A SOLE INSERT? The X Brace offers the user something more than what the traditional treatments of foot pain, like a sole insert, ever could. An insert in your shoe provides increased padding and support for your foot, keeping your foot supported and molded correctly. The X Brace focuses its pressure on the connective tissues and tendons in the middle of your foot, because that’s where most foot pain originates. Another distinct advantage that The X Brace has is its compatibility. The X Brace fits in any shoe, whether it’s a high heel or cross-trainer, and it can be taken with you from shoe to shoe or simply worn barefoot. This type of support gives you the assurance that whether you’re on your feet or off, your pain is being addressed.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY X BRACE? The amount of wear and tear The X Brace can endure is similar to that of a running shoe. If you’re using your X Brace during everyday workouts (3-4 hours in the gym per day, five days a week), we recommend having two pairs of braces that you can wear on alternating days. This will extend the life of The X Brace. For those who wear them every day, we recommend replacing them every 3-6 months. If you wear them in a more casual setting, we recommend replacements every 6-12 months, depending on intensity of wear.
CAN I WASH THE X BRACE? We definitely recommend that you wash your X Braces. If you’re rotating between two pairs, wash them once a week. Hand or machine wash (gentle cycle) in cold water with mild clothing detergent and air dry.
