What Are You Using for Foot Support?

Since tomorrow is the biggest shopping day of the year, I thought I would do a feature on one of my favorite non-beauty subjects that’s vastly under discussed, foot support insoles. I am pretty obsessed and since I really like my heels, I have them in almost every pair I own in some form or another – a ball of foot cushion, back of the heel cushion, ¾” insert or a full insert for boots, which I always get ½ size too big so they fit snug.

But what Santa could really bring me this year that I’ve searched high and low for is a pair of ball-of-foot inserts for us stiletto wearers. It’s always the same, after about 2 hours of standing in sky high heels, shifting back and forth, my feet are done. And I’m not one of those that will take off my shoes before the night is over and carry them. They only come off when I’m in the door, home.

So that’s been my hunt for a long time now - something that lets me get hours of wear out of a nice pair of high heels without the pain. 

So in my quest in making all my shoes comfy, I’ve tried many different brands - Foot Petals, Dr. Scholl’s, Kiwi, Spenco, Stiletto Hardware and others. From what I’ve experienced, the material these companies use is either rubber, poron (Foot Petals) or some kind of space age material they claim will make you feel like you’re walking on clouds.

Dr. Scholl's = Total Foot Comfort

Dr-Scholls-High-Heel-Insoles This one from DR. SCHOLL’S is not really beauty related but I ask you, is there anything beautiful about uncomfortable shoes? The answer is no! Since I am a fan of wearing sky high heels, I am always on the lookout for inserts that are going to ease the balls of my feet. Don’t get me wrong, I can walk even run in high heels, but sometimes you are in a situation where you have to stand and that’s what gets you. I’ve tried all the different inserts, from the drugstore brands to the ones like Foot Petals and this is my latest find that seems to really help. These 'For Her' High Heel Insoles ($9.99 @ are designed for those 2” and higher heels. Bless you Dr. Scholl’s!! It’s a gel that is stuck in the heel and it goes all the way to the ball of the foot so it really provides support. And since it’s clear, you can even use it in your strappiest of stilettos!


My only room for improvement would be the amount of packaging that this comes in – a total waste.
