Reusable 'wonderful' Gel Dancer's Pad
I'm no dancer, but this pad has saved the day.  Diagnosed with sesamoiditis, I've tried other gel pads and even rx orthotics. This is by far my favorite.

Thicker padding doesn't mean more comfort.
I bought Reusable Gel Dancer's pads to ease the inflammation, and pressure on the balls of my feet. But got too greedy and bought the 1/4" inch ones. I would have appreciated a small blurb to think about why i was getting the thicker ones instead of the thinner 1/4" ones. I did use the thinner once I was given from the doctor's office prior to making my own purchase, and I would forget that they were even there. These thinker ones, help, but have become an unbearable nuisance. Great product, but I wish there was better guidance on what size to buy.

Really helped being able to walk less painfully
I have plantar fibromatosis (about 5 nodules per foot), and these really help take the load off sore spots.

Gel Dancer's Pad Review
I chose the thicker pads to be used to treat my sesamoid pain.  i think it was the right choice in that once I wear these for a while the pad is really un-noticeable makes my pain go away.  And if I forget to wear the pads - not a good day.
Well made and easy to use.  Seems to be all that it is marketed to be.

Reuseable gel dancer's pads
I ordered the thicker pads and they have been so helpful to me in my transition from an air cast that I had to wear for sesamoiditis that I got after a cheilectomy surgery. These pads allowed me to be on my feet longer during the day with little pain.
Thank you for developing this great product!

Life changing
I have had 6 foot surgeries and twice, the bones on the bottom of my foot have come through the metatarsal pad. Dancers pads have saved the day. I am able to use the elliptical, walk more than ever and have very reduced pain. This is a truly amazing and simple product that works.

Good product
I bought the pads and help me a lot to relieve the pain of the sesamoditis. I use it everyday but not to play sports. The adhesive is good but wears out after many uses and moves around my foot.

Reusable gel dancer pads
These pads work well, when they stay in the correct position. Unfortunately, this has occurred only once in all the times I have worn them. I don't know if my feet sweat excessively or what, but the pads do not stay in the correct position. They have moved to the arch of my foot, or over to the other side of the foot. The gel adhesive needs to be updated and made stronger. Even after washing the dance pads they still do not remain where they are supposed to remain.

Works for me!
Bought these for R sesamoiditis at base of great toe (didn't feel so great!). Adhesive works as advertised, going on my 2nd week now. Appropriate relief for the pain.

Reusable Gel Dancer's Pads
After one bad day of wearing flats, I spent a year walking around with self-diagnosed sesamoiditis. I bought the 1/8" reusable dancer's pad about a month ago and have worn it directly on my foot daily. No pain when I wear it and I have noticed a small improvement from where I was when I walk barefoot (without the pad).  They are most definitely reusable after washing, too. I can go about two weeks before the adhesive begins to wear down, wash it and swap it out for the 2nd (included) pad while it dries.

Uncomfortable
These felt heavy and awkward on my foot. After dancing for 15 min I had to take it off and replaced it with one of the less expensive pads which was more comfortable - in fact I bought more of the cheaper one twice since.

Excellent
I have had 6 foot surgeries and as a result bones break thru the padding and skin. I'm pretty active so you can imagine the issues this causes.
My choice, another surgery to shave the seamed bone or try these.
Results have been amazing. They protect, are reusable, well made and made a tremendous difference in pain from the moment I put it on.
Buy it. Use it.

Great for Sesamoiditis
Really helpful for my sesamoiditis pain. Previously, I was taping a felt pad to my foot, and this is much easier to use. It took a few tries to find the exact placement, but once I figured that out, I like it.

I had hoped to use this in conjunction with the carbon fiber spring plate, but that did not work for me.

A LIfe Saver
These last forever. I am a 67 year old ballroom dancer who developed pain in the metatarsal area of my right foot due to insufficient padding. The pain was so severe that I had to take 4 months off from dancing. I tried the 1/4 inch pads and was able to fully resume my dancing. Some dance shoes I had to get rid of because they wouldn't accommodate the pads. They worked better with my roomier shoes. I found out about them  thanks to a review written by the mother of an Irish dancer who had a similar problem. These really work.

These Reusable Gel Dancers' Pads really work!
The Reusable Gel Dancer's pads are amazing, they work for me.  I've tried a lot of other pads to ease the discomfort on the ball of my feet, and they are waste of money.  Also I have slim feet, I use inserts to keep my feet in place.  But these pads (especially the thick ones) are doing exactly the same thing.

Reusable Gel Dancer's Pads
I ordered the re-usable gel dancer pads for my husband.  He is a restaurant manager who works long hours and is on his feet for extremely long periods of time.  He also has sesamoiditis.  The reusable gel pads have been a life saver!  We've tried countless pads and cushions and these are the only thing that work.  Yes, they really are re-usable.  Great product and I highly recommend.

Reusable Dancer's Pads
I had bunion surgery that went wrong and now I have sesamoiditis. Went to another foot surgeon and he recommended either reconstructive foot surgery to correct it or try dancer's pads.  I chose not to have surgery and I am now totally dependent on Myfootshop's dancer's pads.  They are much better than other pads out there.  Without them, I wouldn't be able to put any weight on my foot.

Reusable Gel Dancer's Pads
I've had ball of the foot (right) for a very long time.  Prior to purchasing pads, I was getting cortisone shots (at least three) every 6 mos. or so.  Since purchasing and wearing pads when I start to hurt, I've had no shots and the pain goes away after wearing pads for a few days.  Thanks Myfootshop for the relief!

Reusable Gel Dancer's Pads
I was struggling with sesamoiditis in both feet for two months without seeing any improvements.  I had a ultramarathon approaching and decided to give Reusable Gel dancer's pads a try.  I was utterly shocked when I had no pain after 50 miles of running.  These pads were comfortable from the start without having to get use to them, and I never noticed them once during the entire 50 miles.

This product was a godsend for my feet!

Reusable Gel Dancer's Pads
I was diagnosed with arthritis in my big toe with surgery as an option to correct the problem.  As a mom of a young child and an avid tennis player, surgery was absolutely NOT an option.  After Googling my condition I came across Reusable Gel Dancer Pads and gave them a try. They redistribute the weight of the front of my foot and literally take the pressure off of my big toe.  Result? NO MORE PAIN!  A wonderful product!

Good Sesamoid Protection
I bought the 1/4" version and they do provide good cushion to prevent the sesamoids from bearing a lot of weight. They also adhere to the bottom of my feet and are relatively easy to manage under socks. My one complaint is that the material goes from slick to porous on the side touching the sole of my foot. Consequently, it is more difficult to clean off lint/dirt and seems like it is degrading. I haven't had them long, so I don't know if this is something that will subside and then maintain itself.

Good product wrong thickness
I am sure this particular item is excellent, but it wasn't so excellent for me. I should have purchased the thinner reusable pads. The one element of this product I like is that it is reusable, so I will try my hand at ordering the right thickness.

great product!
With really bad sesamoiditis in my right foot, it helped a lot for getting back into running. I will say 1/4" is, I think, too thick for normal walking and for a lot of standing. It is also a pain to get down the sweet spot of where to place it on your foot. Once you get it down, you are good to go!

Did not like
I found these to be very firm and uncomfortable. I chose the thin ones, and they are so thin that the sesamoid joint was barely even given any relief and still had pressure on it when I walked. I much prefer the thicker, cushier felt option.

Dancers pad for fifth metatarsal
I purchased this dancers pad to relieve the pain and swelling on my fifth metatarsal.  I had tried weeks of physical therapy which did not help.  Myfootshop.com staff recommended this dancers pad and within 3 weeks of wearing it everyday, the swelling and pain were resolved.  The pad really adheres well to the bottom of my foot and can be washed every few days...just follow the directions on the package insert. It is very comfortable when worn with socks and shoes. Thank you myfootshop.com staff for this excellent recommendation.

Reusable Gel Dancer's Pads
I've been a sidelined runner for 6 months with plantar plate derangement and metatarsalgia in general.  If I had this product 6 months ago, I might not have been injured to this extent if at all.  Day 1, I could put weight on the forefoot with almost no pain.  Steady improvement continues and most of my symptoms are gone after only 3 weeks.  Makes a big difference!

Wonderful product! I have had a long journey with my sesamoid injury and this pad has given me both relief and support as I continue to restrengthen my foot! (side note: I fractured my sesamoid bone and let it heal through conservative methods. Did not have surgery)

Without these pads, I would have had to stop Irish dancing 3 years ago. They are awesome. Helped allow my sesmoiditis heal, and has kept it from coming back. The pads last a really long time as well (>6 months applying them 3-4 times a week)

Reusable Gel Dancer's Pads
The thick pads have helped to heal my daughter's sesamoiditis.  She wears the thick ones for walking around, but the thin ones did not work in her ballet slippers.  After 3 months of rest and some therapy, she still had some pain, but I think the pads were the most helpful. She has only been wearing them for one week.  I wish we had heard of these sooner!

Reusable Gel Dancer's Pads
Have been suffering with sesamoiditis in left foot and was desperate for relief - every step hurt. Discovered these foot bads on line and decided to try them. Is like a MIRACLE. Have been using for abt 2 weeks and if i forget to put on and skip a day - I notice the difference and wish I'd have worn. And YES, you really can wash them and they DO keep their stickiness each time . you just place on your foot and adjust where feels best for you . I bought the 1/4 inch ( extra thick) because I figured the more cushioning , the better ... but actually I do think maybe the regular thickness might have been better sunce i can feel SLIGHTLY like im stepping on something or there is something under my foot . Ive gotten used to it and prefer it HANDS DOWN to no pad since the sesamoiditis isnt even noticeable with the pad-- Im just wondering what the " regular" thickness pad ( 1/8' ?) might have done same thing ?  Shoes fit fine - no issue with that - and they wash nicely and easily .

I have an artificial big toe joint that is not working correctly and does not bend.  These gel pads take some of the pressure off that joint and make walking more comfortable.

They provide some cushioning for my arthritic big toe. But their flaw is that they do not stay in place without a sock, and slide right out from under the foot. That is disappointing. Not practical in warm/hot weather.

I chose the thicker ones since I'm a guy and have a bigger foot.  At first I thought they might be a little too thick but after wearing them for two days, I really do think it was the better choice.  I have sesamoiditis and can tell a difference.  I had a bit of success with the adhesive pads that my doctor had given me, but these are nice in that I can take them off to shower.
