Relieve Forefoot Pain with Metatarsal Pads

Forefoot pain can be caused by a variety of factors. Taking pressure off the ball of the foot often reduces or eliminates the pain.

Our Met Pads provide fast relief by transferring pressure away from the ball of the foot. The metatarsal pads attach with low profile hook and loop to any Tread Labs insole. Their position can be easily adjusted and they can be removed at any time.

  • Fast Pain Relief - Open cell polyurethane foam gently supports the metatarsal bones, taking pressure off the ball of the foot.
  • Preferred Shape - Tapered edges and oval shape are optimized for all day comfort.
  • Perfect positioning = maximum comfort - Met Pads must be positioned correctly to alleviate pain. Tread Labs modular design allows you to position (and re-position) your Met Pads for an ideal fit.
  • Risk free – With all our products, your satisfaction is guaranteed. Buy a pair of Tread Labs Met Pads to relieve your forefoot pain. If you are not completely satisfied, send them back for a full refund. We’ll pay the shipping
  • Sizing – Simple - Just one size.

Metatarsal Pads

These metatarsal pads have been great so far. They reduce the pressure on the metatarsal heads (ball of the foot) by unloading that area and distributing the pressure to the rest of the metatarsal bones with each step. Takes some playing around with to get the correct location, but it's convenient that they attach with Velcro to the Tread Labs insoles. Several others I tried in the past had permanent adhesive, so moving it around was nearly impossible. For $10, these are worth a shot!

Ordered two sets of these pads with two sets of extra high red insoles. Easy to install and I like having two sizes to choose from. Gives my feet extra support right behind metatarsal! Tread labs is the best by far. Better than custom orthotics.I'm 34. I pray to God this company stays in business for 50 more years because I'm going to need them


Already seeing improvement after just a few weeks. Thank you!

Didn't use them yet.

Had good luck with the Medium low stride orthotic. Have the Low orthotic on the way also. Great customer support from Dan. Thanks!
