I have a 10yo daughter who has been dealing with Severs pain for awhile. We tried a different heel pad that wasn’t comfortable and didn’t provide much relief. We found the first version of this product and my daughter loved it- but her only complaint was that it was loose in the heel and slipped a bit. When I saw that version 2.0 had an adjustable heel strap we ordered it right away. She used it for the first time today and it fits snugly and comfortably with no slipping! Love the improvements in the new version!
Julie, thank you for being a returning customer! I value your feedback and experience with my product. So glad that the version 2 Gym Heel Pad has gained points where something was left to be desired. Keep training hard!
We have been dealing with Severs, and have used a different brand help cup. It worked okay, but was needing to be replaced, when we found this site.
Between PT and these new heel pads, her heels have been doing well! She is back tumbling and not hurting, which is such a relief! These are easier to put on and don’t stink, which is a bonus! Thanks for a great product!
Michaela, this is great news. Thank you for trying and trusting something I made from scratch and an idea to bring a new kind of quality to gymnastics. Heel pain can be so debilitating; I'm glad you've found a combination that works!
I have a 9 year old gymnast that trains 15+ hours a week and has been suffering with heel pain for the last 6 months. We have tried a few different brands that we found on Amazon that helped some but she would still complain that it hurt, just not as bad. She was skeptical when these arrived but as soon as she tried them she fell in love! She has been pain free and that makes a huge difference in her training.
Brianna, wow! Firstly, sorry to hear about the persistent heel pain that sometimes comes with so many hours in the gym. I am really glad you found these to be the best option for your gymnast yet. I hope there will be many more pain-free days ahead for her. Happy training!

Y'all, these are a game changer!!! My daughter suffers from Sever's & absolutely loves these! We have tried many other heel protectors & these are the only ones that have given her relief, cushion, & pain free practice in the gym. Thank you Asher Athletics!!!
Dorothy, I'm really happy to know these have helped so much! Pain in practice – anytime, really– is a big hindrance to progress.
