I need tongue pads for both sides of my shoe’s tongue to relieve pressure on the top of my foot. What do you recommend? Can I cut your “Large” pads to size?

Thank you for your question, Dan! You could certainly try cutting the tongue pads we feature on the site in two and then placing them in your desired locations. For most people, though, one fully intact tongue pad centered on the underside of a shoe’s tongue, just in front of the ankle, is usually sufficient to reduce/relieve pressure on the top of the foot.

Please do let us know if you have any additional questions!

Kind regards,
