It doesn’t matter how beautiful your shoes are : if they’re not comfortable and you can’t walk in them, you’re going to look ridiculous – and I’m sure we’ve all seen the truth of that statement in action at some point or another. I’ve lost count of the number of well-shod women I’ve seen hobbling along looking utterly miserable in uncomfortable shoes.
Scholl’s Party Feet gel cushions have been around for a while now, and are excellent when it comes to relieving that horrible stinging sensation you get in the ball of your foot when you’ve been wearing high heels for two long. They’re slim, as the name suggests, and although they have a hint of glitter through them, to help them live up to the “party” part of the name, they’re unobtrusive, too.
As well as helping keep the soles of your feet comfortable, these can also make shoes that are slightly too big fit better. I’ve been wearing them inside my Christian Louboutin Mary Janes which, as some of you will recall, are a half-size bigger than I’d like them to be, and the gel soles are just the right size to push the foot back enough to make the shoes fit. They’re £4.88 and available from Scholl.
