I love these!
I had been using felt pads for my Morton's neuroma and while they did help with the pain I had to use a new one every day. This gel pad is perfect for my needs, because it's reusable. And because it's gel, it doesn't wear down like the felt pads did. When the stickiness wears away after a while I just wet slightly with water and the stickiness comes back. So happy I found these!

Wonder Pads
My doctor recommended these pads for me and I have been amazed at how well they work.  Based on his recommendation, I ordered the thick pads.  The only problem I've experienced is that they are too thick for my heels.  So - I need to order a set of thinner ones.

Great product
I like how these can be worn with all my shoes.  They work great to relive my foot pain and I can even go barefoot in my home again, or should I say sock footed, as I wear the pads within my socks and can walk around the house without shoes.

I use these pads all of the time and they really help to alleviate my metatarsal pain, as well as the bursitis in my hip.  I have several of them I switch out regularly to keep them from flattening out.  Perhaps I am not supposed to do this, but I always use alcohol prep pads to clean them, rather than soap and water, and they have lasted a year.  I also clean my foot with the alcohol prep pad before applying and they stick like new.  I have never had a problem with odor or irritation when cleaning them this way and it has not affected the longevity of the pads.  After wearing almost daily for about a year, they are starting to flatten out a bit and do not provide as much support as they used to. I buy the 1/4 pads and wear a size 8 in women's tennis shoes.

Best of the bunch
I have bought every blessed ball-of-foot cushion available and was surprised that this one really does keep its stickiness and is the most comfortable and practical of the bunch. I have both sizes but find the thinner one works the best. Some critics say the stickiness doesn't last but mine is still going strong after a month. Wash gently with Cuticura anti-bacterial soap.

Works GREAT!
I have a high arch and metatarsalgia My doctor recommended metatarsal pads. I purchased the 1/4" thickness. The difference I feel in my feet is remarkable. What I like most about them is that they are reusable and can be used in multiple styles of shoes -- sandals, heels, sneakers. I've had no problem with the sticky stuff - just make sure to clean them every night and allow them to air dry. I purchased a second set so that one set could be air dry for a longer period of time between wearing.

Gel Metatarsal Pads
I was impressed with the sticky part of these pads.  I was a bit of a skeptic to begin with, but it really does work.  The product seems to be made of high quality material.  I'm happy with my purchase.

Good but not great
I've bought these pads several times because they do work. But I agree that the stickiness issue varies from order to order.  When I first got them, they were great and the lasted a long time with the washing in soapy water.  The next batch didn't last that long and if my feet sweated, they didn't stick so I couldn't really wear them running.  I'll still buy them but I can only give them 4 stars.

Too big for me and hard to keep in place
I've tried several different pads for my neuroma pain, and while I like the thickness of these, they took up too much area in my shoe and on my foot.  They also tended to roll up and slip a bit when taking my shoe off or putting it on.  Might be a good fit for others, but not so for me and my issues.

Too big and thick for me
I've tried different pads for relief for my neuroma, and these were too big, thick and a bit cumbersome for me to wear comfortably.  In addition, they also tended to "roll up" some when putting my shoe on or off, so it took some effort to make sure they stayed in the right place.  They may work well for some, but just not for my specific needs.

Happy with Them So Far
I have Morton's neuroma and my doctor had created wrap around pads for my feet. It helped to ease my pain but needed to be replaced every two weeks.  Because it wrapped over the top of my foot, it could not be worn with dress shoes or sandals.  My doctor then ordered a custom made orthodic for me which worked fine with boots. However, it did not fit in my dress shoes.  Also, it cost me over $400.  So I decided to order the  1/8 "gel pads.  I have been happy with them so far.  I love that they allow me to wear my dress shoes and sandals.  I have only used them 5 times so I cannot attest to how long they maintain adhesion.

good product
i didn't know what to expect and i've never worn anything like this.
after wearing the pad for a few days i went a day without wearing it. it was then that i realized how much it it had helped in only a few days. it's only been about 2 weeks but i wear it every day.

i feel that it works and works well. i definitely recommend this product for any one who has my same issue.

Gel metatarsal pad
Been using them for a couple of weeks. Prefer them to the mini felt or foam pads. May be a bit slow but my challenge is to place them correctly. Find myself
finding places to remove shoe and sock and replace them correctly. I am still doing it,and I think learning.
Maybe important to wash them daily to keep adherence and minimize shifting

Yes these are great for ball of foot pain, however, after a period of time they begin to stink, even if you wash them everyday. I have tried soaking them in vinegar and I have tried leaving them in baking soda over night...they still stink! Anyone have a remedy for that other than buying new ones every month?

Metatarsal Miracle
I have been searching for quite some time to find a metatarsal pad to use to relieve my severe foot pain. I absolute love this pad! To be able to place it directly on your foot, rather than trying to find the right spot inside your shoe, makes it the perfect choice for me.  The gel is very comfortable.  For the first time in years, I have no more foot pain!

I bought these with the hope that it would help the pain in my forefoot. The issue was that it didn't stay in place. I am on my feet for most of my job and walk about 3 miles each shift. It's a killer, I was soooooo hoping these would help. Maybe if the would have stayed in place, but they didn't. :(

Happy Camper!
The reusable gel metatarsal pads work well for me in treating Mortons Neuroma. There is plenty of stickiness so the pad can be repositioned several times to get it just where it needs to be. The pad lasts about 3-4 weeks with daily use in flip flops or with bare feet. I like using an antibacterial soap to wash it every night. I wish the pad came in sizes to better fit a small foot but am a happy camper with the only size available. Good product!

Response from's COE: If the pad is too big for your small foot, you can trim it with scissors.

Reusable Gel Metatarsal Pad
Pad seems work very well, when placed in the correct spop on our foot. It does stay sticky and to the foot well.  Washing it does bring back the sticky very well.

I have capsulitis of my second toe and still working with the pads but foot is getting better.
I have both the 1/8 and 1/4 inch pads.
Good product and good service

All positive!
The reusable gel metatarsal pads work great. I like that the sticky surface cleans nicely and sticks like new.  I wash mine every night with antibacterial soap and find it keeps the pad fresh longer than plain soap. Because they have plenty of stick power, I can reposition it as much as needed. I wear it with flip flops or barefoot. It's a little tight in shoes without laces to accommodate the pad, but does work for a day or so with slip on Skechers. With lace up shoes there is not a problem. My pad lasts 3-4 weeks before it needs replacing. I wish the pad came in a smaller size for a more comfy fit for small size feet (shoe size 6).  I like this pad very much, much better than the felt pads.

Just a note from Myfootshop: If the pad is too big, you can trim it with scissors. Thanks!

Finally some relief!
My Podiatrist did not recommend these, but I found them online.  So glad I did.  I wear mine (1/8 in.) below the ball of my foot which stops my ball from hitting the floor. Love that they are reusable with light washing.  I need to tell my podiatrist about them.

Storing the pads.
After washing the pads, once dry they should be stored on a piece of wax paper, not the plastic they come on.  My foot doctor told me this trick and it works.  The next day it will stick to your foot like it is new!  Love these pads!

Not a fan..
I wore these pads for one day and they were perfect. Within two hours of putting them on the second day, they stopped sticking. Waste of money. Confused by the feedback of previous users who rave about these lasting for weeks.. There is no way.

Please remember to read the instructions which state that when the adhesive stops sticking, it can be reactivated by washing them in warm soapy water. This cleaning process removes the dirt that prevents the sticking and reactivates it. Thanks!

Product hurts your foot
I tried this product and I am very sorry I did.  It is very painful trying to get the gel pad unstuck from the bottom of your foot.  Can you imagine trying to pull a super sticky band aid off the bottom of your foot? Its worse as the skin is so thin in that area where you are supposed to put the pad.  I tried adhering the pad to the bottom of my shoe in the corresponding area and I couldn't get my foot into the shoe so that doesn't work. So sorry I wasted my money on it.

Reusable Gel Metatarsal Pad
I love these! I have both thicknesses and they're very comfortable. The thin one works perfectly as a metatarsal pad with my orthotics. No ball-of-foot pain after all day at Disney World! The thicker one lets me occasionally wear shoes without orthotics - not a permanent replacement, but a great alternative on special occasions. The adhesive is very good. One piece of sensitive skin paper tape keeps the pad from migrating at all. One question: could these be made in flesh color instead of purple?

last longer than expected
I bought them because I have a neuroma. I was surprised on how long they lasted. I wear them on my feet with socks over them. I feel that they are not so sticky when after putting lotion on.
I am a dancer, so they do shift in my socks and I need to tape them in place when rehearsing. This doesn't surprise me at all. They stay in place with everyday activity given the older they get the less they hold. 2 pads lasted me a month. I am extremely active daily, if I wasn't they would last longer. I wash them every night.
They are fantastic because it is possible to wear them daily and saves me money.
I have never put them in my shoes, but wore them with my shoes and they stay in place. They do shift a bit if your feet sweat a lot.

Surprising double use for these pads.
As a C-pap user I was constantly annoyed by the lines my mask straps would leave on my face that would last for hours into the day.  I tried lots of cloths and stuff that always ended up leaving line or slipping out.   One day thought of trying to find some gel pads. These were exactly what I needed. Big enough to cover your cheek & protect them.  Not only do they stay in place & stay cool even in the summer. NO MORE LINES!  I love these pads

I have everyday shoes with orthopedics.  So, I wear these with slippers and dress shoes.  I have the 1/4" thickness, placed just behind the ball of my foot. After a few minutes, they are wonderful--no more Morton's pain and it gives some arch support.

I bought this and the metatarsal gel cushion to alleviate the pain from a bruised metatarsal. I love that it just sticks to my foot because I prefer to walk barefoot (a hard habit to kick!) It has made the pain much better.

I've had some difficulty wearing it with certain shoes. The pad is too thick and peels off as I put my foot in. In that case I use the gel cushion. It's not as supportive but I'm glad I got both!!!

After having surgery on the ball of my foot for a clogged oil gland, my foot doctor used these gel pads on my feet during the healing process.  I have no fat pads on the balls of my feet so without this product, it is extremely difficult for me to walk without pain.  These gel pads have greatly improved my quality of life, because to walk without pain is an A+ in my life.  Thank you Dr. Jill!!!

My podiatrist recommended this brand and what a difference!  I've had 2 foot surgeries which corrected other problems but left me with foot pad atrophy and painful neuromas.  Your pad helps immensely with both.  The fact that they stick on is a real plus as well.  I was about to get custom made orthotics before trying these pads but think I can avoid that now.  Thank you!

Reusable Gel Ball-of-Foot Cushions
I'm not quite ready to endorse a particular product. But I do want to review Myfootshop. It is, quite simply, the best internet experience I've ever had.  I have quite unusual foot problems. I wrote a fairly detailed description of them asking for advice about what products to try. And in response I received a wonderful email addressing my specific problems, discussing which products might work best, and asking me not to hesitate to write if I needed additional help.  These people don't treat you like a customer. They treat you as a person and demonstrate the kind of caring solicitude that is characteristic of the very best health care professionals.

Reusable Gel Ball-of-Foot Cushions
I have Freiberg's Infraction - 2nd toe - and need to offload the pressure from that toe. I have been wearing an ugly Ace bandage wrap for about 1 year. A friend told me about Jill's Gels and I thought they were worth a try. The 1/4" Jill's Gels pad works perfectly. I am thrilled to give up the Ace bandage look! I've been wearing the same pad for about 2 weeks and amazingly it stays where I put it day after day. If you suffer from the same problem, give Jill's Gels 1/4" pad a try - I'm sure you'll be satisfied!

As soon as I got these, I tried them on with my highest pair of heels. I had to reposition them just once. My feet has never felt so good. I am still trying to figure out why I haven't bought these a long time ago. It's winter right now and I can't wait to try them on full force with my high heeled sandals. Will post another review after I have worn high heels with gel pads all day long.So far so good- loving it.
