Ok – Time for a confession. I am very short. I am only 4ft 10in. As such, I love to wear heels to bring me up to the respectable 5 ft tall. If I am going out dancing and really want to glam it up, I wear 4-5 in heels so I can put my head easily on my husband’s shoulder as he holds me close. By the end of the night, my feet are KILLING me.
When BzzAgent asked me to try these new Dr. Scholl’s for Her High Heel Insoles and told me that they would help ease foot discomfort while wearing heels, I was a bit skeptical – but I agreed to let them send me a pair to try out. I had tried other insoles and most of them made my shoes too tight. I also have very small feet (I wear a 6 in ladies heels) and they were visible under my feet. That definitely is unsightly in a pair of nice heels! I even tried trimming a pair of a different brand, but then they offered no cushioning in the places I need it.
So, I try the Dr. Scholl’s for Her High Heel Insoles. The first thing I notice is that they are labeled “Left” and “Right”. They also have labels for “Toe” and “Heel”. At the toes (which are what kills me by the end of most evenings in heels) is a soft gel wave padding. The arch also has small gel arch supports. This is intriguing as my usual brand didn’t have this little feature.
They fit perfectly into my size 6 heels and the adhesive kept them in place all night long. Even with the arch supports, they didn’t make my shoes too tight on my feet and they were invisible! No one could tell that I was wearing them. I am not going to tell you that my feet weren’t hurting by the end of the night, but I was able to more comfortably wear my heels for significantly longer than I usually do. The balls of my feet (the trouble area) didn’t hurt me the next day like they usually do after an evening of heel wearing.
They are about $12.99 a pair and you can find them at Walmart and Target in the foot care aisle. You can also get them through Amazon.com
While BzzAgent sent me a free sample to try, all these opinions are mine in their entirety.
