I'm sure that many of you have heard of Dr. Scholl's -- this company does amazing things for people experiencing foot pain, lower body pain, and certain skin conditions. I would go into detail about all the different pains that their products target (and how), but it would take me several pages to do that!
Many of my colleagues, family, and friends use Dr. Scholl's products on a daily basis. My boyfriend recommended buying a pair of Dr. Scholl's sneakers to help with my arch/ball of foot pain; I work eight and nine hour shifts several days in a row and I used to end up in excruciating pain at the end of the week. It got so bad that I literally could not take another step...and when you're working a grocery store, on your feet, that isn't exactly an option. I did switch from supportive flats to not-so-supportive flats to sneakers every few days, but every single pair gave me the same end result after several shifts in a row. Even taking medicine or massaging my feet did not help. I ended up going to DSW to buy the Dr. Scholl's sneakers and wow has my life changed in the last month since I bought them. I rarely get any pain, even at the end of the week, until I take them off! I never get to that excruciating or even uncomfortable stage anymore. A lot of people associate Dr. Scholl's with the elderly, as if their products aren't cute and trendy -- that just isn't the case! They had really cute sneakers and shoes, in denim and plaid prints as well as a sparkly solid. I chose the denim pair and I get a lot of compliments on them. I actually haven't worn another pair of shoes to work since I bought them because I am used to the comfort now.
I was recently sent a pair of Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles from BzzAgent. I was super excited to try anything else by Dr. Scholl's, since the sneakers have been so good to me. I must have really sensitive feet, because I can't wear a pair of heels for more than a few hours without ending up in the same pain as I was in at work. Some pairs/heights are worse than others, but even the smallest of a heel can really put a damper on my night. It's unfortunate, because I am really a shoe lover and a fashion lover, and there are just some dresses where heels are more appropriate.
The Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles are made for heels 2" and up and have a money back guarantee if you do not experience relief. I think that says it all right there! They fit comfortably in any open-style shoe, including: sandals, slides, slingbacks and strappy dress shoes. They aren't huge pads that are visible and would ruin your style -- they are clear and very thin. They won't make your shoes feel any tighter or look any different in your going-out outfit. The insoles have an adhesive backing which keeps them from shifting and they can be removed without damaging your shoes at all.
How do they provide pain relief?
- Ultra-soft gel arch shifts pressure off the ball of your feet
- FabuSTEP Gel provides added cushioning
This product is available in most stores like Target, Walmart, etc. On the Dr. Scholl's website, you can order them through Target, CVS, or Drugstore.com. Prices vary by location, but seem to be around $9-10 per pair. This is a good price, because with heavy use, one pair lasts about six months. The product fits women's sizes 6-10 and no trimming is required to fit any shoe.
I really liked the Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles. Though I only wore my heels wandering around the house to test out the inserts, I could tell that the gel was hitting all the right points on my feet -- where it places pressure is important, because I know that it will stop me from getting that horrible pain. The gel is very comfortable and did not crowd my shoes enough to pinch my toes. For me, the inserts were not thick enough to make any difference in the overall comfort of the shoe itself. They did not slide when I was walking around, so I feel that the adhesive is strong enough to stay attached to the material of the shoe. I will definitely report back the next time that I venture out wearing my heels all night...it will now be a lot sooner, now that I trust this product to work!
