How to Fit Killer Heels Comfort high heel inserts into shoes - one easy step

High heel inserts must be fitted precisely to work effectively to provide the best foot comfort.  The photo illustrates how to fit high heel inserts into shoes. In this position the high heel inserts hold the foot form sliding forward, stabilize high heels and cushion the foot.  Note that the ball of foot inserts have dots on both sides that are placed at the points where the foot is widest.  When it is in the proper position the toe bar must touch and gently press into the  front of the ball of the foot. This keeps the foot from moving forward and down in heels.

In its' proper position the foot will be centered over the slight rise in the middle of the ball of foot cushion. This slight rise targets the head of the middle metatarsal to cushion the foot most effectively. The ball of foot cushion does not crowd the shoe because it is thickest in the middle where cushioning is most needed and tapered along all its' sides. The fronts of the toes and all of the big toe and little toe rest on the insole of the shoe, thereby having room to wiggle inside the shoe even during a footstep. 

The objective of the high heel inserts is to provide maximum effective cushioning and hold back the foot from sliding forward without crowding the foot or creating instability in walking. The foot is not pushed up at the heel or allowed to slip sideways by the design of the front of heel cushion, and the toes functions of balance and propulsion are preserved by the ball of foot cushion.

Even when you buy 'highlife' shoes they can behave like 'lowlife'. When the foot is positioned inside high heel shoes in an optimal place where it is designed to be, then even very high heels such as the Louboutin's - as in the photo are stable and will stay on your foot. However as soon as you begin to walk your foot shifts in your shoes and slides forward with every step. Unless you have custom made shoes nearly every pair of high heel shoes can benefit from having small foam inserts put inside to stabilize them and cushion the ball of the foot. Killer Heels Comfort inserts for high heels are the only inserts that can be customized - and are really tiny - so they are invisible even in strappy high heel sandals.
