We had a special dinner to go to not long ago, the kind that requires rather formal attire. I had a beautiful dress already bought but not the shoes. My sister lent me a pair of heels to match however they were just a little on the big side and were slipping a little. It was my mum who recommended buying these party feet heel shields, which she had never tried but seen in the chemist. Rather than having to look for new shoes, I thought paying £4 for a pair of these heel shields in Boots would be the better and cheaper option assuming they worked. I had previously heard of the Scholl Party Feet range but never tried these heel shields before. THe looseness of my sister;s shoes was really around the back at the heel, so I knew if these would stay in place they could possibly be my answer. These gel shields are clear in colour so are therefore meant to be discrete. They are thin so to make your footwear still comfortable and they are shaped in such a way as to neatly fit around the shape of the heel to stay in place. I wouldn't say that I was overconfident in the stickiness of the adhesive on these shields and did wonder if they would stay in place at all, and they did, however, I'm not sure if you were to continually wear them if the stickiness would last, but for what I needed them for, which was literally one evening, they worked a treat. That little gap that was making my sister's shoes slip was closed and I felt happy wearing them, not having to worry about them slipping off as I walked and falling. Obviously they aren't going to do the job if the gap is too big, but if it is a case of slipping then these seem to work well. Also, I also didn't need to worry the shoes cutting my heels as they protected that area of my foot from any rubbing. Therefore they are also of benefit to those who have a pair of shoes which always cut their feet and this may just give them the comfort and protection that they need. All in all, £4 for these heel shields was the cheaper option that buying a new pair of shoes for one evening, and why would I when they did exactly what I needed them to, keep my shoes from slipping and make them comfortable to walk in. I would recommend these.
