Scholl: Saviours of heels as well as soles

Yiz were gassin’ in yesterday’s Blather about Converse, and a few girlies remarked that, while they looked good, they were inclined to cut the bleedin’ heels off them.

Which reminded me to tell you about my most favouritist recent discovery: Scholl’s Heel Shields. Part of their great Party Feet range, they’re made of the same clear, discreet, almost totally blinvisible stuff as the Gel Cushions for under the balls of your feet. These lads stick to the back of your shoes to help (a) protect against rubbing and blisters, and (b) ensure your shoes don’t slig off of you.

Washable and reusable, they cost about a fiver and are absolutely brilliant for anyone who knows the embarrassment of walking out of a party shoe just as you think you’re at your most glamorous.

Not that I’d know anything about that, like. Ehem!

    Scholl have leather padded heel liners with a sticky back that are more permanent. I had a pair of heels that had stretched so they slipped up and down. I attached these to the heels and they are perfect now.

    O ya those “heel grips” are great for shoes that may have streched…or when you buy a pair in the sales that are a half size too big..! Such a sucker for bargain shoes.

    Hate those gel cushions though, only ever wore them with sandals and they end up coming out under my toes – not a pretty sight. Am I doing it wrong!

  • Lynnie Lynnie says:

    Bee, I’ve tried those before but they didn’t quite do the job for me, think that the Party Feet ones are plumper and seem to ‘hold’ my heels better.

    Or maybe I just have oddly shaped feet!

  • Lynnie Lynnie says:

    Sweetie, the amount of those gel cushions that get left behind on the dancefloor on a Saturday night is unreal! Once the side with the little knobbly grip bits is against the sole of your shoe, they should stay in place, other than that I don’t know of any tricks for them – maybe double-sided tape..?

  • Atomic_Blonde says:

    Oh gone are the days when i was younger going out, id have a lovely cotton wool ball stuck to my heel with a plaster to stop the heels of my shoe rubbing. Have to say it done the job hehe!

  • Lynnie Lynnie says:

    Ha ha Atomic you’re a classy burd, nearly as good as me with Sellotape wrapped around the bands of rings to keep them on!

  • sweetie says:

    O thats gas AB! I put the gel cushions on once going to a xmas party, I;d to go to an anniversary mass first, and as I was going up to communion, the gel cushion was around my toes! I hadn;t even got to the party!! NEver worn them since.

  • littlemisswonders says:

    sounds like a plan fifi!

    Don’t fancy Daniel Craig or Marco Pierre White, not my cup of tea at all!

  • littlemisswonders says:

    damn wrong post!!!

  • becks says:

    These didn’t work for me either – I didn’t make it out the door though.

    I have broad feet so don’t wear stappy sandles. I even find sling backs impossible.

  • Lynnie Lynnie says:

    Littlemiss :lol:

    Becks, slingbacks wreck my head because I find the hems of trousers get stuck in the strap, vay annoying.

  • sparklequeen says:

    they make the party feet with one side sticky now so they wont budge, just means you need to buy a pair for any shoes you need them for insted of reusing one pair

  • Ruth says:

    i cant get thess to stay stuck the heel of the shoe..i thought it was because i was sticking them and wearing the shoe straight away so not giving it enough time to stick.So i put them on the shoe the night before to give them time to stick..wore the shoes the next day and lo and behold the feckin thing came off about an hour later..grrrr..scholl have made a fortune off me with these as i keep losing one when i use them..
