I have Achilles tendonitis. This splint seemed to aggravate the pain no matter how I adjusted it. I couldn’t sleep at all with this splint on at night. I don’t 100% blame the splint because the directions are horrible, but it just didn’t work for me. After trying 3 night splints bought at drugstores that did not resolve the issue I got a day boot (heavy duty boot that goes up to my knee) from a podiatrist and that seems to be helping.

Very comfortable in the toe area, does not squeeze them. Don't worry about the ice pack being too cold like the insert warns you about, it's so thin it melts from your body heat in 10-15 minutes. Only concerns are that the velcro on the ankle strap may wear out and it should be a little longer up the calf so it can pull your forefoot up a little more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jilly I LOVE THIS!
I have chronic problems with my Achilles tendon. When it flares up, a night splint helps relieve the symptoms. I have another night splint, but it is huge and bulky and has no place for ice.
I thought I would try this and MAN, I am pleasantly surprised.
~it is truly compact
~very, very comfortable
~easy and safe to walk a few steps in
~most importantly, relieving my pain!
One word of caution: the ice pack is held on with velcro that could easily come off of its envelope. When you remove it from the brace, pull the velcro off the brace, not the velcro off the ice pack. (all the other velcro is sticky on both sides, making the boot very adjustable).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizzy. I WAS SKEPTICAL
I was unsure, but I was always in too much pain. All I can say is that I'm very glad I found this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle Great Product that WORKS!
After doing some research, I found that I am suffering from plantar fasciitis in my left foot. It was so painful, that I had missed work and couldn't walk on it at all. I purchased the splint and slept in it like it instructed, and the very next morning when I took it off, I was all the way to the kitchen before I realized I had no pain in my foot! The ice pack that is included is a life saver as it fits right into the splint and velcros into place. I use my splint almost every night.
