Gravity boots act as ankle supports. Like the ankle supports used on inversion tables, these boots allow you to securely hang upside down and enjoy the benefits of inversion therapy.
They can be used with inversion tables, bars or racks to make inversion therapy more comfortable and effective. If you’re thinking of buying them, we’ve rounded up the 6 best products on the market below.
Top 6 Gravity Boots for 2018
- Teeter Hang Ups Gravity Boots
- Body Solid GIB2 Inversion Boots
- Teeter Cobra XL Gravity Boots
- Goliath Labs Gravity Boots
- Teeter Hang Ups EZ-Up Gravity Boots
- Pro-Deluxe Anti-Gravity Boots
The straps are adjustable, so these boots will fit comfortably on just about any sized ankles. A double-lock system ensures that the boots are safely and securely strapped into place.
They also come with a removable calf loop that adds a two degree bend in the knees.
The calf loop makes them more comfortable to wear and also helps reduce load. Each boot weighs approximately 2.5 pounds, and one size fits most users.
Manufactured with a durable yet flexible fusion of Dupont Hytrel, Teeter Hang Ups Gravity Boots are compatible with all Teeter Hang Ups inversion tables, bars and racks.
The GIB2 are designed to help ease back pain, muscle fatigue and spasms. If you’re a runner, cyclist, bodybuilder, or just enjoy doing aerobics, these can help you keep compression fatigue at bay.
The Body Solid GIB2 Inversion Boots use a single locking mechanism that attaches to just about any chin-up bar. The pads on the boots are contoured for added comfort, and additional pads are included to allow for a customized fit.
If safety and comfort are your primary concerns, the Teeter Cobra XL should be at the top of your list. It comes in at number 3 on our list simply because they’re larger than the Teeter Hang Ups boots.
The Cobra XL are lightweight but highly durable. Lined with soft, contouring foam, these boots are comfortable to wear and won’t cause compression issues like other products do.
The exterior shell is flexible, which further adds to the comfort. Of course, the they also come with Teeter’s double lock system that maximizes security and safety.
Although the boot is “XL,” one size will fit most users. The straps can be adjusted to fit just about any ankle size, and the product itself weighs 2.5 pounds. For extra comfort and safe inverting, the Teeter Cobra XL Gravity Boots are a smart choice.
Made in the USA, Goliath Labs product is comfortable and they come with a steel hook construction. The only reason why these boots come in at number four on our list is because they come with zero instructions.
The boots come with a foam exterior and interior for added comfort. This product will fit most users, and the maximum weight capacity is 259 lbs.
The biggest issue we had with the Goliath Labs product is the lack of information on the product. They do not come with instructions and there’s no information about the product on the company’s website. However, these boots still get the job done and fit securely onto your ankles. If you’re on a tight budget, you may want to consider these for inversion therapy or to build strength.
The third Teeter product on our list, the EZ-Up Gravity Boots with Conversion Bar Adapter Kit comes with the same boots as our first pick, but also includes an additional conversion bar adapter. These boots come in at number five simply because the price is higher than our number one pick.
They can be used to replace your inversion table’s ankle clamps, and the adapter kit can be used to replace your table’s assembly. While the conversion kit is a nice addition, we’re really more concerned with the boots themselves.
The included product is compatible with Teeter Hang Ups EO-550, 560 and the 560 LTD inversion tables. They’re also compatible with a few tables in the F-series.
The boot’s soft foam liners are 5/8” thick to minimize compression. The straps are ratcheting and self-locking for a snug and secure fit. Much like our first pick, these also come with a removable calf loop. Each boot weighs just 2.5 pounds.
The Teeter EZ-Up Gravity Boots with Conversion Bar Adapter Kit is a great choice for any user that’s looking to also take advantage of inversion therapy using a bar or rack.
Power Sports’s Anti-Gravity boots are powered by Pro-Deluxe and come with extra padding for additional comfort. The straps are adjustable, and they use a hook construction. One size fits most, and the straps can be adjusted to fit varying ankle sizes.
Much like the Goliath Labs boots, these are an affordable option for users who are on a tight budget.
