Why We Love This

EquiFit Gel Bands protect rider's heels, ankles and legs from rubs and irritation while riding and are ideal for breaking in new boots! The Equifit Gel Bands stay in place while riding and fit comfortably and unobtrusively under tall boots, chaps and half chaps.  The EquiFit Gel Bands are made of a unique stretchable fabric lined with a polymer gel that gradually releases a soothing mineral oil into the skin. These bands are able to be worn directly against the skin or work just as effectively if worn over a sock.

Made in the USA.

Short height bands are sold as a pair.
Tall height bands are sold individually. 

Favorite Features

  • No more suffering through breaking in your boots!
  • Very stretchy outer lined with a polymer gel for comfort
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Hand wash after use, mild soap and air dry

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money These are a life saver. I have a pair of boots that were killing my shin and these have made a world of difference. Buy these, you won’t regret it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't ride with out them! I bought these for a pair of new tall boots that I had to break in. I'm in love with these bands now. I haven't had single blister since I have been using them. Pulse the skin on my heels feel really soft and supple after I use them. I wear them under my socks and position them so they cover my ankle and heel. Mine have stretched a little where they go around my heel, so I marked them with sharpie to remember exactly where fit. It's perfect they are now are a custom fit! I thought I would use them just for breaking in my boots, but I love them so much I wear them every time I ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST.....THING....EVER! and I mean it! I was literally DYING after sending my beloved Parlanti's for a rework whereby the inside panels with holes were replaced with a much more durable but UNYIELDING inner panel meant to last a long time. My ankles were screaming and my precious riding zen was being seriously tarnished. Somehow, thru many google searches of "what can help make breaking tall boots not a nightmare", lol, i came across these..I am absolutely shocked by the difference. I rode all 3 of my horses today and not ONE moment of boot-created anguish. BRAVO, and please, don't ever discontinue these!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I just bought these because I saw them as I scrolled through buying other products and I just recently bought (and am breaking in) new tall boots. The first time I wore my boots (before I bought the bands) I had pressure points and bruises from where the boots were breaking down at my ankles. I only had my boots on for about an hour. The second time I wore my boots I used the bands and wore them for almost 2 hours. I did not have any pressure points or bruises on my ankles. I also noticed a spot on the band that became thinner after wearing them- I assume this would have been a blister on my heel without the bands. I can't comment on to longevity, but at least they saved me the bruises and pressure points so far. I would definitely buy them again when breaking in new boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more blisters! I wish I’d had these gel bands years ago. They provide terrific protection in my talk show boots. No more blisters and scars.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gave me hives At first I loved these! Really helped break in my new boots. But a few days after I noticed I got a horrible allergic reaction from them and got hives on my ankles! I will try and use them still but over my socks instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can not live without these I purchased a pair of these bands yesterday along with a new pair of tall boots from one the the retail stores I rode in the gel bands today while riding in my new boots and I rode for an hour and no rubs, no blisters, no bleeding. This product is truly worth it and amazing I can’t image breaking in boots without them now. Super comfortable and easy to put on, and will definitely be purchasing these again

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-Have for Breaking in Tall Boots I bought my first pair of dressage boots, having only worn my old field boots for the past ten years. My trainer recommended buying these gel bands to help the break-in process, and thank God she did, otherwise I'm not sure I would have bought them and this whole process would have stunk a lot more. Absolutely recommend these for anyone breaking in boots or if your boots aren't an ideal fit.
