I was excited to receive my Influenster Sunkissed Voxbox filled with beauty products but when I saw that I was now the proud owner of Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles, I wondered, Do I even own a pair of heels? And with that opening sentence you fine readers are now in on a little secret: I am definitely not much of a lady. I like feeling pretty and all that jazz, but I need to be comfortable at the same time. Comfortable in my skin, comfortable in my clothes, comfortable in my shoes.
So here I was sitting in front of my newly opened, long-awaited, adorable Voxbox, my new goodies spread out on the floor ready to be photographed. I found a pair of heels in a storage bin in the basement--I'm not kidding when I say that they are the only pair I own and I didn't even know I owned them, heels are so uncomfortable--and inserted the gel insoles. These stick right to your shoe when you peel off the backing and they are clearly labeled: Heel Toe Left Right.
Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles promise to improve the way you feel in heels. They certainly had their work cut out for them with my hatred of wearing heels. $10.99 is a small price to pay for a product if it changes the way I feel about tall, uncomfortable shoes.
To test these insoles out I set up a backdrop outside in the 90-degree heat and went to work. A photo shoot in heels. If I could feel comfortable wearing heels while posing in front of the camera, operating the camera, and chasing a naked potty-training 2-year-old around the yard, then I could see myself purchasing a second set of heels--and a second set of Dr. Scholl's insoles.
For the first few minutes I felt extremely awkward in my shoes. The gel felt hot and squishy as if I was stepping in a mud field, albeit a comfortable mud field. But by the end of the photo shoot I was able to run and hop and jump in my heels and my feet weren't feeling awful.
So, would I recommend these Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles? I actually would. Especially if you're on your feet all day in heels. I wish I had a product like this when I worked for Corporate America and actually had to wear heels for ten hours, five days a week. These insoles probably would've made me feel much better at the end of a long day.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.
