“ Brand: Scholl / Type: Insole / Insert / Suitable for: Foot „
I bought these after buying a new pair of boots which weren't very comfortable. My feet would ache terrible after wearing these boots so I decided to give these inserts a go.
The inserts come in a pack of 2 and are sold in most chemists and shops like Boots and Superdrug. I bought mine in Lloyds pharmacy and they cost £8.99.
The idea of these inserts is give extra padding to the arches of your feet which in turn will support them and reduce the pressure on them.
The inserts fit a standard shoe size of 4-7 and are made of a plastic material which is very soft to the touch and very cushioned. They are transparent and they are shaped to cradle the heel and are 3/4 of the length of the shoe. This is to give freedom of movement to the toes.
The insert fits neatly against the back of the shoe and stays in place despite not being stuck on. the cushioning helps to support the balls of the feet and also helps to reduce the space between the shoe and the arch of the foot.
They are machine washable so can be reused.
I found these very easy to insert into the boots and they felt lovely and soft when I wore the boots. My feet didn't ache after walking in them and it just felt like I was wearing extra thick socks. The inserts are non slip so you feel comfortable in them no matter what shoes you are wearing.
Despite initially being put off by the price the fact that these are reusable means that they are actually good value. I haven't needed to wear these with any other shoes but they are versatile enough to wear with anything.
I bought these for about £8 from my local large-chain supermarket. I thought they were quite expensive for insoles, but the little window on the packaging allows you to experience the product a little bit - definitely springy!
I needed them because I had been wearing some cute, trendy and fashionable cloth shoes every day for weeks and they really weren't made for standing, walking and doing stuff. They provided little support for my feet, whether it was support for the arches of my feet, the side-to-side movement experienced from moving around etc etc
Anyway, as soon as I put these "Scholl Busy Feet Spring Inserts" in my shoes, my feet were in heaven. They really make up for poor shoes:
* great arch and heel support
* allows a bit of shock absorbency and springiness in each step you take
* it doesn't take up valuable toe space in your shoes because it goes from the heel to the start of the ball of your feet, so no scrunched up toes!
* you can save a poor pair of shoes by buying a pair of these Spring Inserts to make up for the poor quality!!
*I definitely was able to walk faster, better and more comfortably. No complaints with functionality.
These are a fantastic and well-considered product for feet. Definitely feet-savers. They meet that gap in the market which almost all shoe-manufacturers have forgotten: a decent in-sole for the shoe.
On the down-side:
* They're bright blue and 'comfortable-looking', which means they look more functional than anything else inside your shoe. But they do really work, so it looks the way they are. However, if you're a mega-fashion head then maybe it'll stop you from buying and trying.
* Don't start buying any old shoe and hoping that a pair of these will save them. Do still be discriminating when it comes to shoe-buying!
* I'm not sure they work in high-heeled shoes... low to mid-heeled shoes are fine.
* You'll start to wonder why shoe companies aren't doing their jobs properly... why can't they make better shoes?!?!! Shoes with in-soles made for feet that work.
