If you use a heel appliance to relieve pain from a leg length discrepancy, varus, valgus, pronation or supination, summer usually means you either 1) wear sandals and deal with the discomfort of not using your heel insert; or 2) continue to wear regular shoes and heel insert during the hottest months of the year to keep your pain under control.
Now you can have the best of both worlds: cool, summertime shoes AND continued relief from pain thanks to the Adjustable Heel Lift Ankle Sock.
As the name indicates, this ankle sock for heel lifts was designed for use with the Adjust-A-Lift® Heel Lift, but it’s also ideal for use with the Warwick Wedge™ and the Kinetic Comfort Heel Pad. The comfortable, open toe design has a therapy pocket concealed inside to securely hold a heel insert. That makes it easy to wear sandals or flip-flops, while keeping your heel lift insert in place. It’s also the perfect solution for ballet, Pilates, yoga, or any other type of activity that is best done in bare feet.
If you’re planning to undergo a total knee replacement or a hip replacement, your doctor may suggest a heel lift post-surgery if you have a leg length deficiency. Wearing the ankle sock with the Adjust-A-Lift Heel Lift is an easy way to gain add up to 1/2-inch of added lift while at home, without having to wear shoes in the house.
A spandex/polyester blend makes the sock stretchy enough to hold the heel appliance, but not so tight that it’s uncomfortable around the foot and ankle. To determine your size, measure just about the ankle bone (talus), and select the size closest to your circumference:
6-7″: XX Small
7-8″: X Small
If you’re between measurements, we suggest sizing down for the best fit. Large, XL, and XXL sizes are in limited supply; please email us for more information on availability.
Whether you’re new to wearing a heel lift or other heel insert appliance, or you’ve had one for a while, there’s no better time than now to add an ankle sock for heel lifts to your summer shoe collection.
