Children under the age of 16 that are wearing adult size shoes inevitably have a smaller arch.  If your child’s adult shoe size lands right on the edge of one of our adult sizes the smaller X Brace is usually the correct choice.

What is The X Brace

The X Brace in its most simple definition is an elastic foot brace that treats foot pain. In its more technical definition, The X Brace’s patented “X” design, mimicking the effectiveness of low dye taping, eases some of the tension and stress placed on the plantar fascia ligament by limiting the amount of stretching it can do, therefore keeping it from stretching excessively and causing significant pain. The X Brace provides you with a convenient and effective solution for arch support on your terms.

The X Brace Differencethe x brace difference

The beauty and effectiveness of The X Brace lies in its ease of use, simplistic design and its ability to address a very complex issue with incredible success. Foot pain due to Plantar Fasciitis, Sever’s Disease and Over-pronation are often caused by under-supported, over-use of the foot. The unique “X” pattern in our patented foot brace provides support and reduces arch pressure very similar to how low-dye taping works but without all the expertise, time and tape necessary. This support of the arch also helps offset over-pronation, effectively addressing what can be debilitating foot pain.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY X BRACE SLIPS? The only reason that our third generation X Brace will slip is if the size is wrong or the wearer’s foot has an unusual shape that, regardless of size selection, will not allow The X Brace to stay on. This does occur in a small percentage of people. Our third generation X Brace has an integrated silicone strip running the entire length of the heel strap providing a secure grip on the heel.

WHY DOES MY FOOT HURT WHEN WEARING THE X BRACE? There is a normal break-in period whenever a new X Brace is applied. The foot is very sensitive to touch, and pain can be present when new things apply pressure to the foot. The muscles of the foot are also sensitive and with The X Brace’s revolutionary concept of helping the foot to work better, these muscles can cramp if they are not used to performing as they should. If cramping/pain occurs, remove the brace immediately and give your foot 15 minutes rest, then return The X Brace to your foot and resume activity.

HOW DO I PUT IT ON, AND WHAT SHOULD IT LOOK LIKE ONCE I’M WEARING IT?  The X Brace main strap should be just below the ball of the foot, but worn where it is comfortable for you. The loop strap must cross over on the bottom of the feet, forming the “X” on your arches, and then hook onto the back of the heel. Once again, where you place the heel strap depends on your comfort level. We recommend not having it too high, as this might be uncomfortable for your Achilles’ tendon. See our video, below, to learn more about putting on The X Brace.

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? It is estimated that The X Brace has approximately 200 hours of effective life before it will need to be replaced. If you’re using your X Brace during everyday workouts (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 allow the elastic to dry out and recover completely before being worn again, extending the life of both pairs.

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.

  • Length of foot from end of big toe to back of heel – standing on a ruler or tape measure is most accurate:

    My son has suffered from Severs for years and we’ve tried lots of different supports, as he’s a rugby player he’s always found it difficult to find anything he can wear whilst playing. Amazed how well these have worked, played a full game and no limping so would highly recommend…great work X-Brace!
