Product Description

This is our standard Flexyfoot ferrule and is suitable for most crutches, canes and walking sticks. If you are new to Flexyfoot then this is the ferrule to buy.

The uniquely designed bellows help absorb shock, which in turn can relieve pain and discomfort in the upper body. Because the bellows are flexible, the foot stays in full contact with the ground even on rough terrain. This helps with safety and comfort. All ferrules come with our NEW foot tread. This has been developed to provide more grip on wet and shiny surfaces, proving up to 250% better at gripping and reducing slips, trips and falls.

You can purchase Flexyfoot ferrules in grey or black.

Our ferrules come in either black or grey and are available in four sizes depending on the diameter of your walking aid. Check our size guide (opens in new tab) to see which size ferrule is suitable for your stick or crutch.

Easily Upgrade to Extra

All Flexyfoot ferrules are sold with two O rings that can be fitted to the foot to provide greater shock absorbency for full weight bearing or very active users.

The maximum user weight is 130KG

    First time user but not last. Has made me a lot more confident on my crutches as I don’t slip in the rain or on polished floors . At first glance a little expensive but after using for a short time they are worth every penny. I would recommend them to anyone. Add to that very good service and quick delivery.

    would recommend, second purchase, only needed replacement feet, they not only improve confidence, but they take all the shock out of your shoulders, (regular users will understand), they are great.

    Bought this for my husband who has a severe problem with his left ankle & a worn out left shoulder joint partly from heavy use of one crutch. From the moment he put it on his crutch it worked at relieving some of the pain in his shoulder. Can’t recommend this enough. It’s brilliant & will always use this type of ferrule now.

    I have been using these for 4 years, I push my wheelchair with sticks and have found these are excellent and saved my shoulders of undue stress. Highly recommended.

    I first purchased a flexyfoot Ferrule at a Naidex exhibition (where the then Distributor Trulife had a stand) when it was new to the market (cannot remember the year) and it has been excellent in performance ever since, with no wear at all, as I need to use my walking stick daily. On the second year I visited the Naidex exhibition, I spoke to the team and they sent me a pack containing Flexyfoot leaflets and stick gauges, and the possibility of an Ice foot was being planned. Well at last the Ice Foot is here and I have just placed an order. Well done Flexyfoot, keep up the good work.

    A brilliant idea well constructed, but might I suggest one that is still capable of further development. Most of the equivalent heavy duty NHS ferrules have a collar some 40mm deep rather than the “flexyfoot’s” 25mm depth and as a result fix more securely to the stick, putting less strain on the end of the shaft. Even if a slight redesign is currently out of the question guidance on drilling a very small pin hole in the collar for a brass pin might be a good idea.

    Were ‘Flexyfoot’ to introduce a lighter weight (narrower diameter sort of “Twikletoes” version) more suitable for elegant, primarily indoor use canes, the increased collar depth would be perhaps more important. It may seem paradoxical but using an elegant evening stick or antique cane on a polished floor can be just as fraught as walking on ice if it slips when you least expect it! Does the bellows bit have to be vivid orange? An all over black version would be more discrete.

    None of this diminishes the fact that this is a good, well priced, product that should last.

    My wife uses a standard walking stick and saw advert for Flexyfoot in one of her magazines, so I did a bit of online research and watched the video and decided to try one of the standard 19mm ferrules. Fitting it was easy and my wife immediately felt an improvement when walking with her stick. She has a number of walking sticks so I said we could replace the standard ferrules with Flexyfoot one. I was told no, as she want to use it for a long trial period. The end result was she has asked me to get replacement Flexyfoot ferrule for her other walking sticks. I am not in anyway connected to Flexyfoot but truly believe that credit should be given when it is due. It is due regarding this product. So thank you on behalf of my wife. Truly is a quality, helpful addition that does what it says on the tin!

    I purchased a Flexyfoot ferrule recently and have experienced greater stability and increased confidence while walking so much so that I now go out walking alone. I have MS and use a stick to get around. Purchased on the internet the ferrule arrived in Sweden where we live within a few days. Excellent service and a wonderful addition to my walking aids arsenal

    Just been using it for a week. It is much better than the ordinary walking stick rubber. The grip is excellent and would highly recommend it.
