Welcome to my first review! Out of all the goodies in the VoxBox, this is the one I was most excited for. Why? Because it was on my shopping list for the week!
First off, I am short (woohoo beat 5 foot!....barely) therefore I have many many heels in my quest to be average height. Since I also have a standing desk at the office, I spend a lot of hours on the balls of my feet. No matter how comfy the shoe, a little extra padding would go a long way.
I chose to try them out in this pair of Carlos Santana shoes that I am madly in love with, but have trouble wearing for 8 hours.
-The cushions are fairly thin. Not so thin they don't provide padding, but not so thick they make the shoe tight on my foot
-They are sticky, but do not leave a residue. This is a big plus for me as I like to switch up what shoes I wear each day
-They have the rippled gel that is common in many of the Dr. Scholl's inserts I have tried in the past
After an 8 hour day:
-The package claims they will prevent feet from sliding forward and they do! One reason these shoes were so hard to wear in the past is my foot would slide forward and the open toe would feel like it would cut off my toes after a while. With these cushions my feet stayed in place all day
-I was able to wear my shoes all day and was not sore at all
-After removing the cushions from the shoes, they did not leave a mark and were still sticky. I like this as I will be able to rotate the cushions between a few shoes and not have to buy multiple sets
I would buy these again in a heartbeat. If you are like me and wear heels a lot, you will be surprised at how much a difference these little cushions make. I also like how they are not glued to each pair of shoes so I can use one pair on multiple shoes. They are also small and fit completely under my foot, so even with an open sandal you would not be able to see the cushion.
Note: I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
