Black and White: Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles Review

This dress is an old favorite, I've had it for 6 or 7 years, and it's probably still one of the most beloved pieces in my wardrobe. The shoes on the other hand, are a much more recent purchase, and not a very good one.

I was beguiled by their bows and their polka dots. They are very cute, but they are excruciatingly painful when worn for more than five minutes at a time. In the last Influenster VoxBox I received, a pair of Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles came in the box, and these were the first shoes I thought to try them out with.

And what's the verdict? Well, I made it through church without limping! I don't think these heels are ever going to be comfortable shoes, but with the insoles, I definitely noticed a difference. My toes still hurt from being molded into the pointy toes of these shoes, but the insoles provide much better support for my arches than the shoes do, so while I didn't feel like I was wearing a pair of comfy walking shoes, I also didn't feel like my feet were completely going to fall off by the time church was over--and for these shoes, that's certainly an improvement!

So, if you have a pair of extremely cute but intolerably uncomfortable high heels--you may want to try Dr. Scholl's insoles, they just might help you get a little more use out of a pair of shoes you already own!

*I received the insoles for free through the Influenster VoxBox product review program. The opinions presented in this post are mine.

What an adorable dress and outfit! Very unique.

I've made a promise to myself to buy only comfortable shoes from now on. Since 90% of shoes I try on in the store seem perfectly comfortable for the whole 1 minute I have them on in the store and then absolute torture when I wear them for the first time for more than 5 minutes I'm sure it'll be pretty much impossible to keep this promise. I've decided I need a shoe whisperer.

Although insoles can help I find I usually need to buy a size up on the shoe to fit the insole inside.

That is the curse of heels. They are so adobe ale and I LOOOOOOVE wearing them, but you are right--they sometimes can be killer!!

Cute dress and shoes. I got the Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles from Bzzagent(which you should join by the way if you haven't already). I haven't worn them yet, but since the campaign ends in 4 days I guess I'd better get started... Happy you liked them thought. Maybe I'll actually start wear more heels now.
