Heels Without the Hurt

I can't leave the house in my highest platform heels without also wearing a pair of those dorky foam "toe beds," available for $4.79 here. But exposing your insoles when wearing peep toes or sandals is a major fashion faux pas. That's why I'm excited to try the insoles from Foot Petals, which are designed to stay hidden in open-toed or otherwise skimpy shoes.

The company makes five different heel-specific insoles and footpads, including Killer Kushionz (above), which cost $12.95 a pack. These thin, padded insoles widen at the toe, so you can wear them with sandals. Other products include Strappy Strips ($6.95 per pack), which are thin padded strips designed to keep your feet from getting torn up by stiff shoe straps. But I'm most excited to replace my drugstore toe beds with Foot Petals' $6.95 Tip Toes. These dainty, feminine petals are worn at the ball of the foot to keep your heel from sliding forward and provide cushioning. You can buy Foot Petals products at select Nordstrom and Bath and Body Works stores, or get them online here.

I've tried a bunch of these from Nordstrom, and I'm just NOT impressed. I much, much prefer the Dr. Scholl's "upscale" version -- they're clear memory gel, not obtrusive at all. Available as a footbed version or a full shoe version.

I would be all over this if it works. It does seem like it is a bit obtrusive, though.... Now, let's talk about the shoes in the picture :D

Hmmm, intriguing! Are they adhesive? Would that hurt your shoe?
