Product Review: Dr. Scholl's® For Her Ball of Foot - great for the summer and bring new life to old shoes

In the summer, my shoes are sometimes uncomfortable because I have several pairs of older, but well worn shoes that I love. The soles are getting thin and so I tend to feel more the uneveness of the sidewalk. With Dr. Scholl's® For Her Ball of Foot the problem is solved. I put the extra cushioning into my shoes, be it heels or flats or even sneakers, and the sidewalk is now a soft carpeted walking area that supports my feet even after a long day at work.

So the above images show pretty much how Dr. Scholl's® For Her Ball of Foot work. Unlike other insoles by Dr. Scholl's, these insoles are tiny, just big enough to cover the balls of your feet and alleviate the pains and aches that come with having your body weight centered on a small part of the foot. Especially if you wear high heels, your weight is centered on a small part of the foot, the ball of your foot, and can cause significant discomfort. In my case, that is usually worse during the summer time.

The insoles come in handy because you can reuse them. They have a nice adhesive film that can be used for repeated storage and I like that because I have several pairs of shoes in which I use them, but I do not really need a bunch of insoles because I do not wear any of these shoes often enough that it is worthwhile to invest in insoles for each pair.

How to try them on for fit? I spent initially some time trying to figure out where exactly to place the insoles for maximum comfort, then I came up with a trick. I wetted the balls of my feet just a little bit, then slipped on the shoes and use the area that now was wet to mark where the insoles should be placed. This took the guessing game out of the placement of these insoles. I have the left the marks in my shoes, so I have them for future reference and now can quickly place the insoles in the right spot. 

Other than putting them in shoes, slipping on the shoes and having that AAAHHH moment when you realize how much more comfortable those shoes now are, there is really nothing to the use of these insoles that is difficult or even time consuming. They are so easy and quick to use and make such a big difference. I have the full size insoles from Dr. Scholl's as well, but I almost like these better because they focus on the trouble area for me, where it really aches the most when I am walking.

So give it a try and get yourself some of the Dr. Scholl's insoles. Whether you settle for the Ball of Foot insoles or go for the full size one, these insoles can literally give new life to a pair of worn shoes.
