Fashion Rhi-flection: Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions Review


Heels are a new thing for me. You see, I'm 5' 9" tall. When I met my husband thirteen years ago the fact that he was half a foot shorter than I am pretty much ruined any desire I had to add more towering height with heels. Not that I didn't love them. I have legs meant for heels!


Fast forward to the present and a recent wedding we were attending as groomsman and friend of the groom. I wanted to look elegant and polished next to my sweetie so I spent months searching for the perfect heels. I ended up with two cute pairs. Royal blue suede pumps and black strappy platforms. The problem? Heels HURT! Especially when you're not used to wearing shoes more than a couple of times a week.


It's been years since I bought insoles and only ever for more sensible work shoes so I honestly wasn't sure if they even made ones that would be suitable for heels. Enter Dr. Scholl's For Her and their brilliant line of foot care products designed for "women's unique footcare needs".

For my pumps I found that the High Heel Insoles offered the arch support and ball of foot cushioning that made them excrutiatingly painful to wear.

But my black strappy set had a different problem. They were cute and comfortable but due to the high heel all the pressure on the ball of my foot made them uncomfortable to wear out on date night. Since my Spring Beauty Voxbox ended up lost in the mail I wasn't able to try them yet but the Ball of Foot Cushions that were included in the box are just what I need!

Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions are designed to "fit comfortably and discreetly in both open- and closed-toe shoes", which makes them perfect for the strappy styles that are everywhere this summer. Best of all, they're removable without damaging your pricier pairs.

Alas, due to a rotten set of circumstances (a very sick toddler) I didn't get to wear my pretty shoes to the wedding. But now I have a new appreciation for heels—and the hubs loves them in spite of the height issue—and thanks to Dr. Scholl's For Her, I'll be comfy on date-night!
