Heel and Ankle Support Gymnasts and Dancers Count On!

Gymnasts and dancers of all levels have come to love the Tuli’s Cheetah ankle support because of the dynamic combination of shock-absorbing technology from the Tuli’s Heel Cup and the comfort reinforcement of the lightweight neoprene ankle support. The Tuli’s Cheetah provides a “barefoot feeling” protection and comfort ideal for gymnasts and dancers wanting to protect their ankles and heels from repeated pounding, landing and abuse.

The Tuli’s Cheetah provides immediate relief from heel pain because it incorporates Tuli’s Heel Cup’s patented, multi-cell, multi-layer “waffle” design. Tuli’s Heel Cups are the #1 Podiatrist recommended Heel Cups in the world, and they provide immediate heel pain relief by cushioning the area of pain and elevating the heel bone. With the Cheetah, gymnasts can concentrate on competing and not heel and ankle pain.

The Cheetah ankle support is made from medical grade neoprene and provides evenly distributed compression and support to an athlete’s ankle, heel and foot. Gymnasts love the Tuli’s Cheetah Fitted slip-on version because it stays in place with no additional taping or strapping. Traditional heel cups can slip, rub, and move during workouts which decrease their effectiveness. With the Cheetah Fitted design, gymnasts can get unsurpassed support and fit by choosing from five sizes.

They are ideal for:

  • Barefoot Support
  • Dancers and Gymnasts Ankle Support
  • Shin Splints
  • Weak Ankles
  • Ankle Rehab
  • Additional Heel Shock and Impact Relief
  • Sever’s Disease
  • Tired or Swollen Ankles

The Tuli’s Cheetah is sold as an individual unit, not as a pair. The Tuli’s Cheetah no longer comes with an extra heel cup.

The Tuli’s Cheetah is also available in a One Size Fits All version (for adults) with adjustable VELCRO® brand fasteners.

Care Instructions:

Hand wash only in warm water with a mild detergent such as 2Toms® StinkFree® Sports Detergent. Squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry. Do not twist or wring.

How do I measure for the Tuli's Cheetah?

Measure the circumference of the highest point of the arch of the foot and the inches it is will determine the size you need. Shoe size does not matter. The one size fits all should be used for adults not children.


The Tuli's Cheetah does not fit or is hard to slip on. What should I do?

The Tuli's Cheetah can be difficult to slip onto the foot because it is designed to fit snuggly. Sometimes two people are needed to help slip on the first few times. It is recommended to always put on your Cheetah before any workout so that feet are sweat-free.


Why does the Tuli's Cheetah slowly ride down?

If it is riding down, then you most likely are using the wrong size of Tuli's Cheetah.


Is the Tuli's Cheetah for the heel or the ankle?

The Tuli's Cheetah’s primary function is for providing heel protection to those not wearing shoes while also giving a slight ankle compression. If you are in need of ankle product, we recommend our Dynamic Ankle Compression Sleeve.


How can I clean the Tuli's Cheetah?

The Tuli's Cheetah is easily cleaned by hand washing using mild detergent and warm water. We recommend using 2Toms StinkFree Sports Detergent. Rinse well and air dry.


Why didn't I receive an extra heel cup with my Tuli's Cheetah?

Due to feedback from our customers, we have eliminated the additional heel cup. Tuli's Classic Heel Cups may be purchased separately.
