Unlike other insoles, our goal isn’t to just ease your pain, but to address the root cause of your pain and eliminate it. Many people spend a fortune on insoles and shoes trying to get relief from their pain. However, the problem is that when you only treat the symptom, the pain may come back. Many of our customers were tired of this. So were we!

Dr. Clough, a podiatric foot and ankle surgeon for over 35 years, applied his knowledge of how the foot is supposed to move and function to develop an innovative solution, the Cluffy Wedge®. The Wedge has helped 500,000+ people since its launch 15 years ago and continues to revolutionize the way we treat foot and heel pain. It is designed to eliminate pain, not temporarily alleviate it. When the foundation of your body works well, it has positive effects on everything else. Heel and foot pains, as well as ankle, leg, knee, hip, and lower back pains, are all positively affected when your foot is moving and working well.

The Lux Step® insole incorporates the Cluffy Wedge® as well as other patented features. This insole carries our mission a step further by providing a more complete method of helping those who suffer from foot pain, at an affordable price. We know our product looks different and we designed it to be. Our approach works with a different framework than other insole companies. Our goal is to optimize the motion of your foot so that it moves where it needs to and doesn’t where it should not. Try them in your shoes, feel the difference as they transform the way you walk. We want you to step better and feel better. If you don’t like them, return them within 30 days.

Foot heel pain relief products from podiatrist

How do I know what product to order if I have heel pain?

Knowing which product to order depends in part on the amount of inability, discomfort, or pain you are experiencing AND how long you have been in pain. Use this formula only if you are suffering from heel pain.

For example, if you were to look at the pain scale above and said you were at a level “4” with your pain, and you had been in pain for five weeks, Cluffy® would score that as a “20” (4 x 5 = 20). However, if you were to say you were at a level 8 on the pain scale and had been experiencing that pain for ten weeks, we would put you at a score of 80 (8X10). The higher the score, the longer it will take and the more involved it will be to improve your heel pain.

With this in mind, we have created a pain-score scale (below) which will allow you to see what products are best for you to get the most relief from your foot and heel pain with our Cluffy® products. Before knowing what to get, simply find your pain score number as in the examples above. (Use the level of pain on the pain scale times the number of weeks you have been in pain). With that number, look below to find the corresponding Cluffy® products that can help you.

  • The best product to start with is a Cluffy Wedge® for your sandals and a Lux Step® insole for your shoes. This will get your big toe unlocked and allow you to walk correctly, relieving pain.

  • 40 – 60: Lux Step®, Cluffy Wedge®, and add the Heel Pain Relief Kit

Note: in order to get the most out of your Cluffy® products, you need to choose only shoes with a large enough toe box to accommodate the lift under your big toe. These shoes include work boots, dress shoes, cross trainers, cleats, flats, tennis shoes, hiking shoes, casual shoes.
