Good protection May 18, 2009
Reviewer: Mathias Creyf from Oostkamp, West-Vlaanderen Belgium  
Our dojo is not really suited for kendo, because it has a hard concrete floor. After I put my foot down to hard, I injured my heel and couldn't train for some time. So I ordered tis protector. After a while I started training again and had the exact same thing happening. But the protector took most of the impact. It still hurt a little but I could train on like nothing happened.
I'd really recommend this for people who aren't training at dojo's with a wooden floor.
Worth every penny!

Very useful indeed August 14, 2007
Reviewer: Alexander Ko from New York, NY United States  
The protector offers a great deal of shock absorption and also good support for your ankles.  The difference in height is minimal, so you won't be put of balance, but the difference in traction can take some getting used to, especially if you practice in somewhat slippery floors.

Be prepared for a snug fit; it will feel tight putting it on, but will become more comfortable once you have it on and under way with your practice

Excellent! August 3, 2006
Reviewer: Daywalker from Hilo, HI United States  
Aloha ALL,

I went back to Kendo after an 8 year lay-off due to my job. After my first day of training, did I feel it...especially in my right heel. I ordered this heel protector and when my next day of keiko came, I performed shiai like the "good ol' days"!
Also, I noticed that not only did this protector help my heel, it allowed for some very stealthy ashi sabaki!
Only "bad thing" , and this may be premature after only one keiko, but it was very tight. I am sure it will "break in" after more use, but If you order this one and want to be on the safe side, go a larger size for sure.
God bless, and mahalo e-bogu!
