Tulis Classic Regular Under 175lbs
These heel cups were recommended to my 12 year old daughter for Sever's disease by a podiatrist. The condition is common among young athletes. Sever's is heel pain caused by the growth plate in the heel being pulled on by the Achilles tendon. The growth plate is not fused and therefore can become inflamed. The condition is self resolving (once she finishes growing it and the plate fuses she will no longer have pain). Therefore the treatment is in simply trying to alleviate the pain.
These heel cups help her significantly with the pain by lifting the heel a small amount so that the Achilles tendon is not pulling as hard on the growth plate and by cushioning the heel. We have tried at least a half dozen types of heel lifts and these work the best. Because she wants a pair in each shoe (especially soccer shoes) I wanted to get several more pairs. At the podiatrist they wanted 45 dollars for a pair so the sub ten dollar price here is a bargain.
If your child complains of pain in the heels (and if squeezing the rear portion of the heel from both sides at the same time results in pain) you may want to try these.
