I have used these feet with good success on a U.S. made 11C.
Note that it might be possible to identify the replacements (besides the fact that they are not worn) by the corners. The new feet have sharp right-angled corners, but the feet I took off the 11C (I presume they were original) had very small, but non-zero, radius rounding at the corners.
I bought a few sets from this seller. I also used them on my 15C LE when I fixed a marginally-functioning divide key. (I couldn't get the feet off without leaving some adhesive. Others have posted here with how to do it so you don't do that!) Note that the feet on the 15C LE (and I would have to guess on the 12C 30thAE and 12C+...) are a little thicker. The feet I bought were not tall enough to peek over the edges of the little plastic surround ("footwell") in which they sit. So when I set the calculator on a table, the plastic surround sat on the table, not the feet. Simple solution: stack two feet on each corner. (Not the most economical, but expedient at the time....) They have stayed on fine, even though they catch on stuff because the doubled feet are now thicker than the original.
So I'm guessing that if the 11C feet are, say, 1.0 mm thick, then the 15C LE feet are more like 1.5 mm.
I mailed one of the feet I took off the 15C LE to the seller so he could measure, compare, and perhaps find some thicker stock.
Anyway, to answer the original question: The feet I've purchased from this seller have worked fine and stayed stuck. YMMV. Just be sure to tell the seller if you are putting the feet on a "new" Voyager -- and see if he can send thicker feet.
