Children under the age of 16 that are wearing adult size shoes inevitably have a smaller arch.  If your child’s adult shoe size lands right on the edge of one of our adult sizes the smaller X Brace is usually the correct choice.

If you have an extremely wide or narrow foot and would like additional information about sizing please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Tuli's The X Brace is a simple yet highly effective elastic foot support. Its beauty and effectiveness lie in its ease of use, simplistic design, and incredible success in providing arch and heel support.

Unique Design

The patented foot support from Tuli's stands out with its unique "X" design, providing support and reducing arch and heel pressure. This design, similar to traditional taping, eliminates the need for expertise, time, and tape. Tuli's The X Brace arch support reduces the strain on the plantar fascia by helping distribute the weight evenly across the foot.

The X Brace arch support also effectively helps to maintain proper foot alignment due to under-supported, overused feet, making it an ideal choice for foot support to wear with sandals or even barefoot.

  • Unique "X" design for foot support  
  • Wear with sandals, socks, shoes, or barefoot
  • All the benefits of taping without all the time and tape
  • Includes integrated silicone strip on the heel to keep it in place
  • Sold as a pair

Made in the U.S.A.

For optimal results, we recommend wearing Tuli's The X Brace initially for a few hours daily. Gradually increase the usage up to 12 hours per day as needed. It can be worn during or after activities, with or without shoes or socks. However, it is not recommended to wear it while sleeping.

    Just started

    I just got these today at work. Put it on right away. I will wear it as described. I rolled my right ankle at least 3 times and the last time I rolled it inward and think I may have stretched a tendon or ligament leading from my toes to back of heel. Very painful. I do hope these work. I will come back to let you know of progress.

    Tuli X-brace

    I purchased a medium size and found it to be a little tight around my arch, so I limit the time I wear it (3-4 hours instead of all day). It has been some help and is easier to use than the athletic tape recommended by my Phys.Therapist. I'll be using it more as I get more accustomed to it.

    Excellent Support for Feet

    This brace is fun to wear and feels great. Lightweight, it's strong enough to give my feet's arches the support they don't receive when I'm wearing just socks, which is most of my waking hours. There's been a little discomfort from the material rubbing against the heel, but this is easily resolved by wearing the brace a little less or skipping a day. Overall, the brace truly is uplifting, wonderful to use, and ideal for arch support. They are like dancing shoes, without the shoes.

    What happens if my Tuli's The X Brace slips?

    The only reason that our third generation of Tuli's The X Brace will slip is if the size is wrong or the wearer’s foot has an unusual shape that, regardless of size selection, will not allow The Tuli's X Brace to stay on. This does occur in a small percentage of people. Our third generation Tuli's The X Brace has an integrated silicone strip running the entire length of the heel strap providing a secure grip on the heel.


    Why does my foot hurt when wearing the Tuli's The X Brace?

    There is a normal break-in period whenever a new The X Brace is applied. The foot is very sensitive to touch, and pain can be present when new things apply pressure to the foot. The muscles of the foot are also sensitive and with The X Brace’s revolutionary concept of helping the foot to work better, these muscles can cramp if they are not used to performing as they should. If cramping/pain occurs, remove the brace immediately and give your foot 15 minutes rest, then return The X Brace to your foot and resume activity.

    The X Brace is NOT to be used by individuals with diabetes, neuropathy or vascular disease. If discomfort or pain results, persists or increases, discontinue use and consult a physician.


    How do I put it on and what should it look like once I'm wearing it?

    The Tuli's The X Brace main strap should be just below the ball of the foot, but worn where it is comfortable for you. The loop strap must cross over on the bottom of the feet, forming the “X” on your arches, and then hook onto the back of the heel. Once again, where you place the heel strap depends on your comfort level. We recommend not having it too high, as this might be uncomfortable for your Achilles’ tendon. See our video, below, to learn more about putting on The X Brace.


    Will the Tuli's The X Brace fit in my shoe?

    Absolutely. The Tuli's X Brace’s low-profile design will fit into any shoe or cleat, and is comfortable to wear with any kind of footwear, flip-flops and high heels included.


    Why should I choose The Tuli's The X Brace instead of a sole insert?

    The Tuli's X Brace offers the user something more than what the traditional treatments of foot pain, like a sole insert, ever could. An insert in your shoe provides increased padding and support for your foot, keeping your foot supported and molded correctly. The Tuli's X Brace focuses its pressure on the connective tissues and tendons in the middle of your foot, because that’s where most foot pain originates. Another distinct advantage that The Tuli's X Brace has is its compatibility. The X Brace fits in any shoe, whether it’s a high heel or cross-trainer, and it can be taken with you from shoe to shoe or simply worn barefoot. This type of support gives you the assurance that whether you’re on your feet or off, your pain is being addressed.


    How often should I replace my Tuli's The X Brace?

    It is estimated that The Tuli's X Brace has approximately 200 hours of effective life before it will need to be replaced. If you’re using your X Brace during everyday workouts (4 + hours in the gym per day, five days a week), we recommend having two pairs of braces that you can wear on alternating days. This will allow the elastic to dry out and recover completely before being worn again, extending the life of both pairs.


    Can I wash the Tuli's The X Brace?

    We definitely recommend that you wash your Tuli's X Braces. If you’re rotating between two pairs, wash them once a week. Hand or machine wash (gentle cycle) in cold water with mild clothing detergent such as 2Toms StinkFree Sports Detergent and air dry.
