The Achilles Shield Red is designed to protect your heel from stiff shoe heel counters and prevent heel blisters especially when breaking-in new sneakers. It is the more athletic version of the Achilles Shield providing greater shock absorption and compression recovery. Its surface also has improved non-slip properties to keep it in place during high intensity activities. Quality cleats, running shoes, cycling shoes, sneakers, skates and other sports footwear are often rigid when new. Break them in without breaking-in your feet with these inserts.
