Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can my child wear it?

Yes, although you may have to trim it down to fit the small foot. We are actually working on a child’s size, but that may be in the distant future.


Q: Will QUICK TAPE® support straps help pain from Accessory Navicular Syndrome?

We have had several customers tell us that QUICK TAPE® Foot Support Straps successfully relieve pain caused from Accessory Navicular Syndrome. This is due to the Strap helping to align the foot so that bones, tendons and ligaments work better together instead of causing pain from rubbing on each other.


Q. After wearing QUICK TAPE® for a while, it feels like it loosens up. Is it still working?

Yes. The foot will adapt and realign to the supported shape, therefore it will feel very comfortable. Your QUICK TAPE® support strap will still be working.


Q. Can I apply a QUICK TAPE® support strap myself?

Absolutely! Just follow the instructions that come with each package or view our online instructional video. You can print the instructions easily by clicking on the “Easy Print Directions” button to the left side of each page. The important part is to rub the entire strap thoroughly to activate the adhesive after application.


Q. Can I go barefoot with a QUICK TAPE® support strap?

Yes, but it won’t give you protection from sharp objects that you may step on.


Q. Can I hurt myself if I apply it incorrectly?

It’s difficult to mess yourself up with the QUICK TAPE® support strap. It may not work properly to help your foot pain if not applied correctly.

Rub entire strap thoroughly after application to activate the adhesive.

Q. Can I wear it with my socks and shoes?

You bet.


Q. Can I wear QUICK TAPE® support straps even if I don’t have plantar fasciitis?

Absolutely! When applied correctly, the QUICK TAPE® support strap creates a natural arch for your foot. It helps to align the foot allowing bones, ligaments and tendons to work together properly, therefore relieving pain and inflammation. We have received many reports of QUICK TAPE® relieving pain caused by bunions, neuromas, arthritis, shin splints, sprained ankles, achilles tendonitis, Liz Franc Injuries, navicular issues, post surgeries/injuries and many more. It is also a great preventative device for running marathons, basketball games, football games, soccer and other activities that are hard on the feet.


Q. Can I wear QUICK TAPE® support straps in the hot tub or for swimming?

Although it has shown stability during hot tubs and swimming, we don’t recommend long periods of time in the water as it will decrease the useful life of the strap and possibly cause it to come off your foot before you’re ready to change it.


Q. Can I wear QUICK TAPE® support straps with my orthotics or compression socks?

Yes.


Q. Do I need to shave before applying it?

Generally, short hair can help to keep the strap in place. Longer hair may be painful when removing the QUICK TAPE® support strap. If shaving is needed, we recommend trimming hair to about 1/8”.


Q. Does QUICK TAPE® come in a larger size?

Yes, it comes in a Men’s Size 12 and larger. If you have a men’s 11 or 11.5 foot and your foot runs wide, you should probably use the size large so that there is ample overlap to hold the strap in place more securely.

To be certain that you are ordering the correct size, please measure the circumference of your bare forefoot about 1” below where your ankle connects to the top of your foot.

  • QUICK TAPE® STANDARD support strap will fit a circumference of 7.5” to 10”
  • QUICK TAPE® LARGE support strap will fit a circumference of 10” to 11.5”

As the QUICK TAPE® support strap starts working to help align your foot, it may feel as if it is getting looser. Though it may feel strange, this is perfectly normal, and the strap is still effectively supporting your foot.


Q. Does QUICK TAPE® come in any other colors?

Not yet, but we’re working on a skin colored strap for wearing with sandals and flip flops.


Q. How do I remove the QUICK TAPE® support strap and adhesive residue from my foot?

Remove the QUICK TAPE® support strap by slowly peeling off the tabs; keeping the tabs as close to the skin as possible. Use rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab to remove any leftover adhesive. To remove stubborn adhesive residue, soak your foot in warm water and gently rub area with a pumice stone.


Q. How long will the QUICK TAPE® support strap stay on my foot?

Each QUICK TAPE® foot support strap will last up to one week depending on body type, skin type, activity level and humidity. People who are participating in sports, swim a lot or have above average sweating or oily skin may see a decrease in longevity.


Q. I wear a Men’s size 11 shoe. Which size QUICK TAPE® support strap should I order?

If you have normal or narrow feet, you should be fine with the standard size QUICK TAPE® support strap. If you have wide feet or high arches, we would recommend the size large QUICK TAPE® support strap so that it will have enough overlap to anchor it in place.

To be certain that you are ordering the correct size, please measure the circumference of your bare forefoot about 1” below where your ankle connects to the top of your foot.

  • QUICK TAPE® STANDARD support strap will fit a circumference of 7.5” to 10”
  • QUICK TAPE® LARGE support strap will fit a circumference of 10” to 11.5”

As the QUICK TAPE® support strap starts working to help align your foot, it may feel as if it is getting looser. Though it may feel strange, this is perfectly normal, and the strap is still effectively supporting your foot.


Q. Is it normal for QUICK TAPE® support straps to feel really tight on my foot?

Yes, it is normal for the QUICK TAPE® support strap to feel very tight after you first apply it. The tightness feeling will go away after a few minutes to an hour after walking on it. This is because your foot will conform to how the support strap is aligning your foot. Even though it will feel “looser”, it will still be supporting your foot in the aligned position.


Q. Should I wear it before sports or exercise?

Definitely. It’s a good preventative measure to wear QUICK TAPE® support straps before heavy use on your foot. It’s great for extra stability, support and alignment.
