ValguLoc provides excellent bunion relief while you sleep. Slip on at nighttime and experience remarkable relief from the pain and nagging discomfort of bunions. While you sleep tight tendons and muscles stretch giving you comfort and relief. It relieves bunion pressure and provides superior support that won't slip or move about. The plastic brace secures your toe in place, while soft foam surrounds the tender area. Adjust the pad to provide the most protection where needed and secure in place with the Velcro strap. The ValguLoc postural splint is suitable for the correction of a misalignment of the big toe (hallux valgus, bunion) as part of a conservative treatment or after surgery. The anatomically contoured orthotic holds the toe in the correct axis by applying a slight force and stretches shortened parts of the capsule and soft tissues. It is worn only without shoes.

Received this item recently and have been using it for 4 nights (please see UPDATE below). The accompanying direction book does not adequately explain how to position this on the foot, you kind of have to figure it out on your own.

Sounds easy enough now; don't know why I had trouble with it at first.
It's a sturdy item and gets that big right toe pushed over to the left enough to provide great comfort at night. Supposed to...
This is a very worthwhile investment, I believe you get what you pay for. And since my budget is tighter than most I shop carefully. Although it seems straight forward, this product was a bit tricky to figure out how to wear it correctly. In fact, I had to come back to this review and edit it once I figured out I was wearing it incorrectly. I thought the strap was too short initially. Turns out I was wrapping it around my foot in the wrong direction. The velcro should actually make contact on the underside of the device - between the foot and the device. I was trying to make the velcro stick together on the topside of the device and thought the strap wasn't long enough. I liked it before when I thought the fit could've been more generous. Then I discovered my error, and I liked it even more; coming back to edit my review and upgrading my rating to five stars instead of four. I'm planning to buy another splint for my left foot. Side note: Everything I've read about bunions states they...
