Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles Review

Thursday, May 24, 2012

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free set of Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles from BzzAgent to try and review.  All opinions are my own.

I work part time as an optometrist.  The dress code is business casual to professional.  I usually end up wearing dress pants, a skirt or a dress paired with heels.  My days are spent walking patients back and forth from the waiting room to the exam room and then on to the optical.  Eight hours (or more) in heels are murder on my feet.  And for some reason, I usually like to wear at least a 3 if not a 4 inch heel.  I just feel it looks better and I don't do well walking in flats.

Last  October, though, I fell and broke my right ankle.  I had to wear a walking boot and undergo physical therapy for a few months.  That left my right ankle somewhat weaker than it used to be and wearing heels hasn't been as comfortable as it used to be.  I often feel more wobbly and unsturdy in my heels.

Luckily, I was chosen to participate in a campaign for Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles!  Here's what I got:
They sent a free set of insoles, a BzzGuide with information about the brand and the insoles and $4 off coupons to share with friends and family.

I immediately tore the package open.  Or at least I tried to.  That sucker was hard to open!  Here's a picture of my heels that I stuck the inserts in:

These are my absolute favorite heels right now.  I wear them practically everyday at work.  Once I did get the package open, I put them in my heels.  They are squishy.  I immediately noticed a difference in how my heels felt.  The insoles seemed to provide a little more support under my arches.  I wore the heels around the house for about 10 minutes.  My heels did feel slightly tighter, so I'm not sure how comfortable it will be at the end of a work day.  The inserts are easy to remove and adjust, but do stay in place once you're wearing the shoes.

The insoles are supposed to prevent foot aches and pains and are designed to shift pressure off the ball of your foot to provide all-day comfort.  Dr. Scholl's even has a money back guarantee.  If you're not satisfied, they'll replace your product or refund your money!

Would you recommend it?
At the moment, it's hard to say.  I'm not scheduled to work for another week!  I'll have to update this post once I've worn them to work.  Right now, I'll say it wouldn't hurt to give them a try.  They're available in Women's sizes 6-10 and are designed for heels at least 2 inches in height.

How much do they cost?
They cost roughly $10 for one set.  The Dr. Scholl's website also currently has a $2 off coupon offer.

Where can I buy it?
You can find it in all major drug stores, mass merchandisers, grocery stores and online retailers.
