I want to get more feedback from customers about the contents of my blogs. I write them for your education. I want to make sure they are useful and give you good information about high heel comfort - plus dispel myths and bad "tips" such as splinting your toes together to damage the nerves in the forefoot, bad tips on how to 'stretch' shoes, and bad tips like wearing sports socks in tight high heels to break them in. Following bad tips may/will harm your feet, damage your shoes, or do both.
I also want to increase awareness of my newly invented and uniquely effective high heel shoe inserts available on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca These are the only new style of high heel shoe inserts invented in the last 20 years. (The last previous invention is the supersized arch support made from gel or resin that presses the foot upwards under the arch for the purpose of forcing the weight of the wearer onto the arch of the foot so less weight is on the ball of the foot. The biggest problem with the supersized arch support is that it hurts a low arched foot a lot, and does not touch a high arched foot at all - making it painful for low arch people and ineffective for high arch people) It carries the weight of the wearer comfortably on the arch only if it fits, which it does only for a relatively small group. It it slippery so it destabilizes high heels and provides no cushioning for the ball of the foot.
Contoured shaped PORON is different. It rebounds with each step providing soft cushioning under the ball of the foot. The forefoot toe grip and the arch area cushion stops the foot from sliding forward or sideways in any style of high heels from the strappiest sandals to the most narrow toed pumps. (Until 2015 PORON foam had only been available as flat insoles or flat 'petal' shaped ball of foot cushions. Flat sheets of PORON cannot stop the foot from sliding forwards inside the shoe.)
Contouring the PORON into a toe grip takes the wobble out of high heels because the forward & sideways slide of the foot is 100% stopped. This stops toe pain, and stops heel gaps that make heel blisters. The PORON cushion is cut away at the sides in the toe box preserving the balancing and propulsion functions of the toes - with a bonus of wiggle room for the toes. Normal toe functions are needed for walking naturally and with less effort in high heels, and for taking off and running more effectively in sports shoes.
If you are looking for comfort for your high heels- without problems created by bad side effects such as slipperiness, crowding of the foot or the foot being forced upwards out of your high heels , then you must try the high heel shoe inserts sold on my website killerheelscomfort.com or on Amazon. THEY ARE NOT SOLD ANYWHERE ELSE ON THE PLANET - & I PERSONALLY ASSEMBLE EACH SET. Every other high heel shoe insert or cushion or insole is defective in that none of them can stop the foot from sliding forward as effectively as the Killer Heels Comfort brand of shoe inserts. This is because no other cushioning for high heels has a contoured and soft toe grip that can be customized to fit your unique foot perfectly to do all three functions: stop forward slide; cushion the foot; and stabilize the foot. It is a unique invention - which is why it was patented in Canada in 2015 and Europe in 2017 with USA patent under examination.

Platforms, stilettos, high heeled sandals, kitten heels, pumps or mules; 1. Wear the right size shoe 2. A steeper ramp creates more discomfort; 3. Check the heel placement. 4. Add foam cushioning.
There are many bad hacks for high heels put forward on the internet as 'helpful advice' from bloggers for desperate high heel shoe wearers.who want pain relief. Three common bad hacks are splinting of toes, wearing thick socks inside high heels, and stretching too tight high heels by freezing water inside them. Believing and carrying out the bad hack of taping toes or wearing thick socks to stretch shoe may permanently damage your feet to that you can't wear any shoes at all - flats or high heels - without pain. For the bad hack of freezing water in tight shoes to make them fit well - the harm is in believing that too tight high heel shoes can be made to fit properly and continue to buy too tight high heels !
