Wow! I love these... I had used other brand boots for the first time several weeks ago and immediately knew that recovery boots were going to be a splurge in my near future to continue making headway after a couple of injuries. The other brand price tag was simply too much for me to bite off, and the Air-Relax reviews I read gave me enough confidence to give them a try.
The Air-Relax boots seem comparable to the other brands with a couple of minor differences. First, the Air-Relax boots do fit slightly smaller and are more manageable than the enormous other brand boots made for giants and pro football players apparently -- but still plenty of room for me. Also, maybe just a slight difference in the weight of boot fabric, but with no noticeable effect on the experience or overall quality.
From my perspective, the experience is identical. In fact, the Air-Relax boots have one higher pressure setting than what I recall being available on the other brand boots. I have tried it and still too strong for me now, but happy to know I have something to work into as my injuries improve. Just really love the Air-Relax boots. The price point differential made this an easier decision for me. However, given the effect, they are giving me in healing from a knee injury and a severely beaten up shin, I am glad to have pulled the trigger. Have used twice a day since they arrived two weeks ago and my ability to train, and simply walk around more freely, and with less pain after a stubborn injury that slowed me down the past 18 months, is at last manageable.
They arrived two days earlier too, which was a neat surprise too. For me a great product. If you have used recovery boots in the past - and like me moved almost immediately into recovery boot withdrawal phase,... you will not be sorry purchasing this much more affordable solution for home or personal use.
