Preventing Pain In Wearing High Heels
Oftentimes, most women wear painful footwear. Sometimes it is the cause of having a foot condition called Morton’s Neuroma. Could insoles help relieve pain if inserted to your shoes? To find this out, ShopSmart Consumer Report had tested these insoles to more than a dozen of women.
Wearing high heels is highly fashionable but the uneasiness and pain it gives is not good enough. Shoe insoles manufacturers claim that it is guaranteed that their product is the answer to avoid pain and foot aches or it offers all-day comfort to the feet since the entire foot is cushioned by the insoles they sell.
The Shopmart Consumer Reports had tested four shoe insoles costing 8-13 dollars. Women who used at least 2.5 inches of high heel shoes and even as high as 4 inches had tried each insole. Each of them walked and has totaled more than 5 miles. The results showed that these women didn’t feel the comfort they have expected in putting insoles in their shoes. For Dr. Scholl, using insoles is not that great even though she used Insolia for her high heel inserts. On the other hand, Foot Petal’s Killer Kushionz has made wearing shoes a little comfortable but it may damage the shoes. This is because, the adhesive used will stick permanently thus, it is not recommended to remove and reuse it as the package says. And even the Fab Feet ¾ insoles has given the same comfort and is more advantageous since it can be removed easily from the shoes, still the women don’t think any of these insoles are worth the price they will pay.
