I currently wear felt metatarsal pads (#729) underneath the Superfeet inserts in my sneakers. They work very well for me, besides the fact that I beat them down fairly quickly and need to change the pads every 3-5 weeks. I wouldn't have a problem with this if it didn't rip up the bottom of the Superfeet inserts when trying to remove the adhesive pad. I'm wondering which metatarsal pad might be more rigid that I could still put under my inserts but that I wouldn't have to change as often, or at all.
I'm glad the felt metatarsal pads work well for you. And, 3-5 weeks is actually a pretty good length of time to wear them! However, if you want something that may prove longer-lasting, here are my suggestions:
Pedag Drop Metatarsal Pads: these are made of a firm foam with a leather cover, which makes them fairly firm.
Gel Metatarsal Pads: I think this one may last a bit longer than the felt ones, since the gel is a medium firm gel.
Metatarsal Pads-PPT: The PPT foam is a medium firm foam that may also last longer than the felt one.
Reusable Gel Metatarsal Pads: You might want to consider these, as they are designed to adhere to your feet rather than your shoe, and can be worn over and over again. We have a lot of converts toward using these!
Do you have different sizes of this pad and what are the dimensions? Do you have another shape of this same material and what are the dimensions? I have some that are the same material but a different shape.
Yes, we do. As an alternative PPT pad, check out our Metatarsal Bar PPT Cushion.
Can you please tell me how to know what size pads to order I have been diagnosed with mortons neurome and apparently they are quite large on both feet.
The size of the PPT Metatarsal Pad you choose is based more on your foot size than the actual neuroma size. The met pad needs to fit your foot comfortably. The Small and Medium have the same width and length dimensions, but the Small is 1/8" thinner. The Large is bigger all-around.
I was thinking of buying a metatarsal pad but have no idea what is the difference between a metatarsal pad, felt and the ppt. I suffer from ball of foot pain. If you could tell me what's the difference between the two would be amazing.
All of our metatarsal pads work to alleviate ball of foot pain, but are made of different materials. The Felt Metatarsal Pads are made of a dense wool/polyester blend, and the PPT® is a frothed, open-cell urethane foam that is more firm than the felt. I wish I could give you a more specific answer to your question, but the difference in the met pads is often one of personal choice. If product sales is any guage of preference, we sell more felt met pads than all of the other met pads combined.
