The 'secret' to making sure you have the best chance of getting high heel shoe inserts that will work for you and give your foot maximum comfort is put them in heels that fit - never too tight - and choose inserts by the criteria of what is the softest and what you can customize as much as possible to fit according to your unique foot to cushion and stop forward slide.  Bonus if the inserts stabilize your high heels to stop wobbles.

Even the Duchess of Sussex has high heel issues !

Three important tips for how to wear high heel slingbacks comfortably and safely and be able to walk naturally are:

1. Wear contoured PORON foam rebounding inserts made for high heels in shoes to keep the foot from sliding forward (especially critical with narrow toe shoes), plus cushion the ball of the foot from pressure inside killer heels. 

2. Wear contoured PORON foam rebounding inserts in shoes made for high heels to keep the heel of the foot firmly inside the heel area of the shoe. The contoured foam will keep the foot from falling off to the sides at the heel, plus keep more of the weight of the wearer on the heel end of the shoe so there is less pressure on the ball of the foot.  

3. Wear contoured PORON foam rebounding inserts made for high heels in them to keep the foot from moving inside the shoe, either sideways or forward at the heel of the shoe and at the front end of the shoe.  High heels, especially ones that are open at the heel end, or at both ends - like high heel sandals - are very vulnerable to wobbliness.  Wobbliness affects the wear of the shoe by making it unstable and unsafe.  It also affects the way you can walk in heels. If high heels fit snugly to the foot then walking in them is much easier, with a more natural gait and less tiring because you are not clenching your foot and leg muscles trying to keep your shoes on your feet while you walk in them.
