BZZAGENT - Dr. Scholl’s® DreamWalk™ High Heel Insoles

BZZAGENT - Dr. Scholl’s® DreamWalk™
High Heel Insoles

Walking in heels can be hard on ANY woman's feet. It's even rougher on a disabled woman's feet. Not to toot my own horn, but I'm one of the lucky ones. I can walk, albeit with a walker or rollator, but I can still walk.

I was quite excited to get this BzzAgent campaign, as my feet ALWAYS hurt.

Sadly, I was disappointed with the product.

The product

I will give credit to Dr. Scholl's for making them feel VERY soft to the fingertip touch. But that's where it ends.

As a disabled woman, I DON'T wear heels often anymore. I wore them a LOT during my teenage and young adult years, but once the CP started to get worse, I opted for flats or sneakers (comfortability over stylishness). I can wear wedge slip-on sandals, so that's what we're working with here.

Also shown is how my foot 'curves' to the side.

After following the directions as well as I could (the food beds in the sandals are stained) Mama Melissa helped me apply the insoles. While there was cushioning there, the insoles pressed against pressure points in my foot, especially the balls of the foot, right under the toes. I also had pressure in the arch of the foot and I didn't feel as secure while wearing the sandals; my foot rocked back and forth on the insole, causing more pain.

Despite Dr. Scholl's claims of 'Ultra-thin design won't make shoes feel tight,' my sandals felt snugger and the straps cut into the tops of my feet. If anything, the insoles made the shoes quite uncomfortable.

These insoles MAY work better for able-bodied women who DO wear heels daily. If you'd like to try them, They are available at just about every drug store and 'big box retailer' for approximately $8.00. Amazon also sells these insoles for the same price.

As I said, These insoles MAY work better for able-bodied women who DO wear heels daily. But they are not worth it for a disabled woman.
