A Shoe Savior: Sole Patches

Powered by Brandbacker

I have trouble with shoes. 

No matter which shoes I wear, I'm in constant pain (expect if I'm in Uggs) and no matter what shoes I wear, they get destroyed.

I have to buy new shoes once every season because the ones from previous year are ruined. It could be because I'm very hard on my feet, or because I am in the subway & walking in the city and the ground is rough and dirty. 

I don't know why my shoes (and good, expensive shoes) get horribly destroyed but more often than not my mom will look at me and say "Did you go mountain hiking? What happened?".

Combine that with the constant pain, and like I said, I have a shoe problem.

I'm not even talking about heels-- forget heels! I wore heel booties to GenBeauty (WHY) and my feet were numb for over a week. I wore another pair of heel booties to a work event that I was at for maybe 3-4 hours and I almost started to cry because I was in so much pain.

My feet do not take well to heels, therefore I cannot wear them & I pretty much refuse to wear them.

That is, until Sole Patches came into my life. I was gifted these by the company through BrandBacker and it came right after the work event debacle so I jumped at the chance. I tried wearing regular insoles I picked up from Duane Reade and they just didn't work, so I thought maybe these would be a good idea.

Sole Patches are just little adhesive pads that attach to your feet or to the inside of your shoe to relieve pain and make shoes a little more comfy. They prevent your feet from sliding forward and can withstand 24 hours of wear.

If you want to be able to wear these more than once, they recommend sticking them to the shoe instead of your feet because once the day is over and you remove from the bottom of your foot, there is no going back.

I have a pack of 6 Sole Patches and they're shaped like a little flower which I think is a great shape because it covers a larger circumference of your foot.

I've used these twice, both with boots. I haven't tried them on heels yet because as you read before, I'm just terrified of them. I tried them with my Jack Rogers booties which have a bit of a heel & a pair of riding boots that have a heel. I placed them on my feet, under my socks and it was a bit uncomfortable at first but you get used to it.

These shoes do hurt me if I'm wearing them long enough but with these patches, I felt like I had that extra layer of support. They worked really well and the next time I wear heels I'll be sure to try them out!

What are your feet solutions?
