When people think “heel cups” they most likely think Tuli’s® because Tuli’s have been the standard for heel cups and heel protection worldwide for over 25 years.
Tuli’s – “Shock Absorbers for Your Feet”® have become the standard not because of a fancy ad campaign, but because they simply perform better and last longer than any other product. The patented waffle design was created, by a podiatrist, to mimic the columns of cells in your foot that you are naturally born with. Everyone knows what is found in nature is clearly the best design for absorbing the shock of walking and running and also working fluidly with the normal motion of your foot. Tuli’s isn’t something you are born with, but it is the next best thing for shock absorption.
So what exactly do Tuli’s do? Well they absorb the shock of walking and running to the one square inch of your heel. Your heel absorbs 3 times your body weight when you walk, and 5-6 times your body weight when you run. For example, a 175 lb or 80kg person would put 525 lbs or 240 kg of pressure on 1 square inch of their heel walking, or 875+ lbs or 400+ kg pressure when they run. What are the benefits? Well pain prevention for starters.
As you can imagine, over time your heel can only take some much and as so many others, at some point your heel is going to need some help. Specifically, people who suffer from heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, Sever’s Disease, and shin splints all benefit immediately from the shock absorbing qualities of Tuli’s heel cups. And because of the bio-mechanical design of Tuli’s they not only work better, but before long you won’t even know they are there because the conform so well to your natural foot design.

Protecting the foundation of your body is like protection the foundation of your house. Without a good foundation, nothing above it is going to last long or function correctly. And as they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
