Save your Feet!

I bought a new pair of HIGH heeled boots a few months back…and when I say high, I mean high.


(pardon the pasty legs, the flash went off and I was wearing nude tights!)

The heel on those is about 3 inches. And these are for a person who never wears heels. I mean, I do on occasion, but my usual heels are only about an inch or so. But I loved these boots!

I wore them a lot to try to break them in, and I moved the insoles out of a different pair of heels to try to make them more comfortable. Tim bought me these thick heel wedges at Pound Stretcher to try to help…but always, after an hour or so, the balls of my feet would be in terrible pain from all the strain/pressure.

It really upset me, because these were NOT cheap boots (though I did score them on a sale!). I figured I would just have to suffer through it until my feet got used to the height of the heel, but then I was in Boots a few days ago and I found these. Ball of Foot cushions. They don’t go in your shoe, it has a loop for your second toe and then you position it under your tights/sock/whatever. And my feet felt so good! The only weird thing is getting used to the toe loop, but honestly, after about 10 minutes I forgot it was there. The pads are washable, too, so if they start to get funky you can just wash them in the sink. I’m so happy. Now I can wear my fantastic boots all day, everyday.

I also like that since it doesn’t stick to a shoe, I can use them in other pairs of shoes. Maybe my chorus shoes won’t be so painful any more!

    nice boots! i envy your ability to find boots to fit your calf diameter…still struggling with that for my hamhocks.

    The shop I got them in is a plus size shop….I tried on boots in 5 other stores and nothing fit, so I finally went there. The boots have stretchy inserts in them.

    Also, the woman in the shop told me to scrunch the boot down to my ankle and zip it and then pull it up – so a pair of boots that I couldn’t zip fully in another shop might have fit if I had done it that way!

    Evans does shipping to the US for £8.

    My calves are 44cm wide, if that helps!

    The only reason I have these is because Tim agreed with me that they were a good investment!
