Plantar fasciitis usually strikes with a vengeance when taking your first steps in the morning.
The stabbing pain stems from the inflammation of a thick band of tissue known as your plantar fascia, which stretches across the bottom of your foot, connecting your heel bone to your toes. Repeated stretching or tearing of this shock-absorbing tissue or overloading it can lead to small tears, irritating the fascia and causing inflammation.
Wearing a boot at night can prevent your plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, and calf muscles from tightening, making for a more pleasant experience when you get out of bed.
Supporting a neutral foot position, this soft orthopedic night splint reduces irritation and pain caused by foot conditions including:
This bedtime brace gently stretches your plantar fascia so you can start the day pain-free. Following is a list of the features that make this one of the best solutions for the treatment of plantar fasciitis and other common foot conditions.
The drawback to many splints for plantar fasciitis is that they can be uncomfortable and interfere with your sleep, which is counterproductive when it comes to healing.
However, our splint is generously padded with breathable foam and covered with an ultra-soft material for optimal comfort. Removable for washing, the extra soft lining eliminates skin irritations, preventing blisters and abrasions.
Note: Even if it isn’t entirely comfortable to sleep in compared to nothing, it’s important to wear it regularly in order for your foot to heal properly.
Holding your ankle in gentle dorsiflexion, this splint keeps your foot at a 90-degree angle to your leg. For an even greater stretch, you can add the soft, foam insert, which elevates your foot to relieve inflammation and increase comfort.
This wedge attaches via fastener to the toe area of the plantar fascia support and adds an additional 5 inches of stretch.
The dorsiflexion position that this plantar fascia pain splint holds your foot in also makes it a good treatment option for other foot conditions, such as foot drop, Achilles tendonitis, or heel spurs.
Sized for both men and women, the comfortable night splint can be used on either your left or right foot, with or without a sock. This splint is easy to put on and strap up in bed or while sitting down, making your nighttime routine quick and easy.
The soft night boot is secured with three medical-grade fasteners. These wide, adjustable straps allow you to adjust the tightness of the brace to your own specifications, securing your foot at a 90-degree angle.
Outside of the straps, the front of the boot for plantar fasciitis is open, which enhances the breathability of the support.

Didn’t actually use it. Pain went away. Returned.
The boot is working well. I’ve worn it for two weeks and my plantar fasciitis is getting better. I suffered for 18 months, getting cortisone shots, laser treatments and shock wave treatments, orthodics, with temporary relief. This is definitely working and it’s very comfy to wear at night. I recommend it highly.
Terrible brace. The velcro straps have a small adhesive area, and they come off at night. Two fo the three straps came off all night long. Do not buy, it's a horrible design. All they had to do was make a wide enough velcro area, but they didn't. In theory it would work if they had done this, the other materials seemed fine.
This is honestly a really great brace! I had an accident last year that resulted in some different injuries including a drop foot. My old brace was loose and would easily come off my leg during the night while moving so I ordered this hoping for a change. This brace stays in place, I'm able to wear it the whole night, and it does keep the foot at 90 degrees. I also love that I can take the covering on the brace and wash it which I have done and worked out great! I read a review that said the sizes were a little too big. I wear size 8-8.5 shoes which according to the chart should be a medium but I purchased a small instead because of the review I read. It worked out perfect for me so I'm glad I sized down!
I like it. My ankle and foot doesn’t hurt as bad as it did.
