Forget the party, this is fantastic during the Summer months or when on your feet in the evening, okay then there great at parties!
I was so worried that these would be very obvious, slippery, too bulky or just would not work.
I didn't have a chance to see any reviews or check if other found them to be good but knowing the brand name SCHOLL was all I needed to know that they are and will always be experts in foot care.
Although their was an inner battle between price nothing really can compare to comfort and decided on the leading brand that would help me get through the day on heel in Summer.
These are easy to apply to your shoes and comfortable. The moment you open the packet and feel the gel you know its got a firm grip and once on the shoe you fiddle around to place it correctly but in a good way because you know its got a good grip on the shoe.
When you put your foot on the gel it's cooling and almost like a massage. It's slim and not bulky and doesn't slip at all. I almost forget these were even in my shoes.
These retail at £4.99 for one pair. Which does seem like a lot but you can reuse these and once again the comfort is far better than expected I couldn't argue with the price after a heavenly day in heels!
These were purchase from BOOTS at the time but they are almost everywhere.
These are easy to buy in many local pharmacies or larger chains. They are OK if you have a new pair of shoes and need something quickly. Or perhaps those who rate these well are people who don't suffer from too much pain in their feet?
However I have found that Party Feet are only any good for one or two uses. Being a gel material, they do squash down after only a couple of uses. You get cushioning but no support, therefore your weight pushes down the gel, and you still feel a lot of pressure through the ball of your foot.
I am speaking as somebody who has had to get podiatry advice, and suffer with ball of foot pain and plantar fasciitis.
I think you are better served with a more professional product, which supports the fleshy area of your foot, just before the ball of foot where the bones are. If that is supported with an orthotic (yes you can get them for fashion shoes) then you'll be surprised that the ball of the foot is supported. So the theory is about supporting the mid section of the foot before you get to the painful ball of the foot. That may be counter-intuitive, as you'd think you need something under the ball of the foot, or strapped to the forefoot, but I've honestly noticed the difference.
Anything that is made out of gel makes your feet sweat, which obviously isn't as good for the summer. I feel they would have benefited from a coating, so your foot isn't on the gel surface itself.
If you suffer with your feet, it is worth paying more for something better.
Cracking night because of comfortable feet
Had a whole evening out with the girls and I am not a person that wears heels, and so I saw these and bought them to try out, These did help my feet as they appeared to stop any blisters forming and did seem too do the trick, my feet were fairly comfortable, and prevented any pain where my shoes would normally rub after being in heels for a whole evening however one problem I did find was they kept moving or slipping down, the glue to keep them in place is not the best, In the end I bought some glue which helped and they stayed in place, which was a result because it helped me have a cracking night out! I mean a girl with comfy feet has the best nights right!? and looks fab to boot. after arriving home safely though and thinking about it, yes my feet were not sore and yes no blisters but I did think actually they was a bit expensive and will not be paying out for these all the time especially as i had to buy extra glue for them to actually stay in place, the glue isn't very strong and does not stick at all well, would suggest to the designers that they make the glue stronger and maybe last longer too, in my experience the glue lasted only an hour before I had to get extra glue. saying this i will be looking out for these when on offer as they did help me.
WHAT ARE THEY?
These are shields that are for the back of your shoes if they are a little bit too big or if they are rubbing at the back.
HOW DO YOU USE THEM?
You stick them to the back of your shoe at the heel and they will either make them feel more comfortable if they do not fit very well and will stop the back of your shoes rubbing your heel and bringing pain to your feet.
WHAT I THINK
I have used these 3 times and I think they work very good. I wear high heels alot and I am used to walking in them but when I get a new pair of shoes the area where they rub me is on my heel and these are soft against my skin so I think they are a very good thing to use instead of ugly plasters that other people will be able to see over the edge of the back of my shoes.
They stick good and have been on a pair of my shoes for many wears now so you do not have to change them every time you wear your shoes.
They make my feet feel alot better and I think that is the main thing because when your feet hurt you can not enjoy yourself and some shoes you do not know that they are going to hurt until you have already gone out in your shoes and then it is too late.
I like the Party Feet brand but do not think they are always worth the money because there are other cushion products that work good for the ball of your foot. These cost about £3 for one pair and that looks expensive because they are only very small but they stop me being in pain so I do not care about the cost.

I am terrible for buying shoes in the wrong sizes. I like to shop for shoes in the sales and invariably I love the look of a pair but they are usually either too big or to small for me. The last pair I bought were from Next in their sale and they were black stilettos which were about half a size too large. The right shoes in particular kept on slipping at the back and was causing me so much pain to the point whereby I though I wasn''t going to be bale to wear them again. a friend and colleague of mine suggested that i buy some Scholl Party Feet Invisible Heel Shields and to be honest, I haven''t looked back. These were bought from Boots for four pounds for one pair but they have been so good that I have been out and bought more of them for those other shoes which don''t quite fit properly. These heel shields and clear and have a strong adhesive to them and no matter how active I am, they don''t sip or fall out. The are the perfect size to make such a huge difference in terms of comfort for my poor old feet and they really do help my shoes to fit better, feel more comfortable and to stay in place and stop slipping about when I walk. I have three pairs of these heel shields now from Scholl and I have since recommended them to my mother who also has a habit of buying shoes just a little too large for her. They may seem expensive but it e long run they do work out really cost effective as they last for ages and you don''t need to keep on replacing them with new ones. definitely a product I would recommend.
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.
