Heel cups are small insert pieces of high density material designed to provide soft support, cushioning and relieve strain on painful heels. Heel cups, or inserts, are placed at the heel inside the user's footwear to help reduce stress by absorbing shock and pressure. Heel Cups generally feature a combination of materials with different densities such as a core of soft gel and the outside of silicone to provide extra comfort and cushion and to reduce the amount of shock experienced in everyday activities.
