Look what came in the mail today from Buzz...Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Insoles for Women! They are sized from 6-10 (women sizes). If you are size 10 then you're all set, just stick them in your shoes and go. I take a smaller size so I had to trim it to my size. It is real easy to do, just follow the line. I live in my slippers and although it says for shoes, sneakers, etc. I put them in my slippers which are like a pair of moccasins. Now there are the shoes we women get that are like ballet slippers and so I didn't think my slippers are any different....I mean, the gel insole won't know the difference.
The first thing I noticed is the squishy feel that after a few hours I didn't even notice any longer. I guess it is like trying on shoes for the first time, you 'feel' the different soles and padding until your feet get used to it. Then I noticed it seemed like my heels were higher than before which made me stand straighter and I don't have that pain in the small of my back like I always do when standing any length of time.
Then I was thinking, if my foot is higher in my slipper, what would happen with something more rigid like my sneakers? Would my foot be squished against the top of the sneaker and I get blisters from it rubbing? Would I be able to even get my foot in my sneaker? Would it make my sneaker too tight? Well, only one way to find out.
They were gracious enough to send coupons and so I took one and went off to the store and bought another pair. I put them in my sneakers (went in just as easy as the slippers) and after the long weekend out and about I am happy to say that not only do my sneakers fit as they did before (no tightness) but I also don't have that pain in my lower back and I feel like I am standing up taller and straighter.
Now I don't know if my heel is really higher vs. the toes or it has to do with the arch or what it is, I am no Dr. but I thank goodness for Dr. Scholl's. I will be using these in my shoes, slippers, and anything else I put on my feet.
So if you want happy feet too, I do have a few coupons left so if you'd like one just let me know.
It has been weeks now using my Dr. Scholl's and I am still loving them. I have to be honest with you, I was a little worried because they are in my sneakers which I wore doing yard work. There are a lot of woody things growing out in the back yard which I cut down. I tried cutting them close to the ground but still when you walk you can feel them as you step. I was thinking it was going to pop that gel insole and what a mess that would be. Can you imagine! It was all for nothing because they did not pop even after hours and hours of walking on them. They are just as comfortable as ever and don't show any type of damage.
