The elastic band that goes under foot wont fit.
doesntmatter
Don't wear it for more than working out or else it hurts, but it definitely helped and some days I can run without it.

The item says on the back of the box, one should only wear it for 2 to 3 hours and then take it off.

I bought this strap and it does work. As many other reviewers have said, the strap is a bit longer than expected when you loop it around the bottom of the foot. It's okay for me because I don't wear it that much and only if i need it.

Speaking of wearing this strap. The strap isn't supposed to be worn all time. The item says on the back of the box, one should only wear it for 2 to 3 hours and then take it off. I think this is true because you don't want to have your foot get too depended on using the strap and so, only wear it when needed.

The strap is good if you want to keep the achilles tendon from moving around so much and making the foot more stable. Since my achilles tendon injury, I only tend to use it to work out in. I used to wear it just walking around places, but my achilles got better and now I'm okay without it now.

I do recommend this product, if you have achilles injury that is healing.

I had an insertional achilles tendinosis issue. This product did not help me. Fit was not good, support almost not at all. Better option : Take small steps when walking, get a "night splint" (the one I used is Active Ankle Dns Dorsal Night Splint Small (men 5-10 Women 5-9 1/2) but others look OK too), do "gastroc stretch" and "eccentric heel drop" (put weight on other foot when returning the effected foot to the start position).

I was having a lot of tenderness in the back of my heel after running, so I quit running for a month or so to heal and as soon as I started again I had the same problem. So I bought this strap to wear during running and it helps a great deal. Way less discomfort after a run.

I bought this to support an Achilles tendon. I liked that it was light and easy to put on. The only reason I gave it a four star rating is that after walking about a mile (during a daily 2.5 mile trek) it was uncomfortable. .. Or about an hour around the house.

when I recieved them their were no directions for how to wear them so I didint know how high the strap was supposed to be or how tight to make it. They irritated my skin after about an hour of use and I will not be using them again

I guess it helped to support the ankle vs nothing at all but I dont think it did anything to help it heal.

This support works great. The tubular buttress relieves pressure at the point where the tendon attaches to the heel. Simple and effective. Would be difficult to wear with shoes, but with backless sandals or clogs it's great. Not effective for long periods of time, I use it when my Achilles is sore from over exertion or strain. It almost instantly relieves 80 to 90% of the pain. My tendonitis is pretty bad and I use this support at least once or twice a day. It has never failed to give me major relief. I recommend it highly.

My achilles feels so much better when I run with this on. It does not seem to work for everyone, but for the cost I thought I would give it a try. It was worth it

update 10/8/13 I have continued to use this off and on. When my achilles flares up and is tender, I can put this on every time and be able to run without discomfort. If my achilles feels great, I just go without it. It has without question, allowed me to train much more than I would have been able to without it. Working on my first marathon now.
