Independent Brands Making Shoes for Work
I read Corporette weekly, the authors of the column always provide excellent recommendations that are genuinely helpful. I was delighted that they mentioned my inserts among high quality comfortable to wear shoes.
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.
The Cole Haan 3" heels (in the photo) are an excellent example of shoe that is comfortable and easy to walk in that I can vouch for personally with my feet! I put Killer Heels Comfort high heel shoe inserts into them for long time walking comfort.
Wearing comfortable heels takes two steps. Step one buy well designed, well balanced high heels that you can easily walk in and that feel comfortable for at least 1/2 hour of walking- then, step two, customize them with rebounding, never flattening inserts that cushion the ball of the foot and stop your foot from moving about so you can wear heels comfortably for much longer - up to four times your personal best.
FYI well designed heels come in all price ranges - some very expensive famous brand name heels (that look great) are badly designed, hard to walk in and very uncomfortable while some inexpensive shoes may fit perfect and be easy to walk in. Most less expensive shoes usually have less cushioning. They will benefit a lot from additional custom cushioning provided it does not crowd the foot. Always buy shoes that fit properly, and if in doubt about the fit buy shoes that are too big - never, ever too small!

I am offering them to you here for a special reduced price of $5 so I can sell the overstock and not have to pay Amazon a warehousing fee.
