Every Little Step I Take

As I've written many times before on BGG, I am not a shoe person. Don't get me wrong, I love shoes, they just don't love me back. I can hardly ever find comfortable shoes no matter the heel size, brand, price or material. I know the saying, "beauty is pain," but my comfort is something that can't be compromised no matter how hot a sexy stiletto may look. Luckily, I was recently introduced to the lifesaver for suffering feet - Foot Petals!


Stiletto Survival Kit available at www.footpetals.com for $49.95 (Prices vary from $4.95+)

These little pads of cushiony goodness now make it possible for me to stand in heels without cringing with every step. Just slip them into your shoes and you're ready to hit the pavement in style!

Have you ever tried Foot Petals? Do you often allow your feet to suffer for the sake of looking good?

**Btw, the winner of the R Sessions RootControl is K-Bear. Congrats! Please email me your mailing address.

BGG, meee too!! Shoes have never loved. Except ballerina flats. We get along real well. I need to invest in these. I really love heels but it has always been painful to wear them---having flat feet doesn't help. Yikes! Happy Hump Day!

BGG, I've never heard of foot petals but I'd love to give them a try. I love heels and I don't usually have a problem with comfort but every now and then I'll have a pair that are killer! It would be great to have these handy dandy petals just in case!

I need to try these. Like you I cringe with every step as soon as I put in a heel. Thanks for this.

i usually use the dr. scholls gel inserts from the pharmacy, but these are so cute! i like that they come in a cute package. i mainly stick to flats, but when i buy heels, they MUST be comfortable. MUST! i get cranky when my feet hurt so i spare my friends that experience by making sure that doesn't happen, haha!

No, I've never tried them but I SURELY need to: Heels Hate ME!
...I'm truly a 'flat' girl

I friggin' love shoes and my feet suffer often. It's the worst when I go out of town and we're partying every night. Pretty shoes all night and recovering feet all the next day.

I have used foot petals before and they are a bit more expensive than some of the other toe-savers on the market, but they're worth every penny.

I definitely need this. I hardly ever wear heels because I'm so uncomfortable in them. This sounds like the perfect cure for my aching feet!

Rebee said...

My feet have not began to suffer from shoes just yet. I'm able walk for LONG periods of time in heels of any height. I'm not a flat girl at all. I'll keep these in mind when I start having foot pain! Thaks

i'm a flats girl too :) but i do use these lil inserts for when i do wear heels!

MeMe said...

Yes, I have allowed my feet to suffer just to look good. But to my credit, I don't do that too often. I have tried products like foot petals before, but they do little for the comfort of my feet. Since you say foot petals worked for you, I am willing to give it a try.

I love shoes and I have heard of the foot petals but I've never tried them.

i am no stranger to the pain of shoes which is why i consistently wear flats and sneakers. the petals are a good idea but not an investment id make. i just brave the pain when im desperate to look cute.

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

Btw, I wear flats most of the time or boots that are comfortable. However, nothing makes me feel sexier than heels!!

Glo said...

I'm in heels 6/7 days a week, and trust me without cushions and inserts of that kind, my feet would fall off.

Great find BG!

Now you know I love me some heels so I am BEYOND to hear about foot cushions that actually work. Good looking...

MoniMoni said...

I have used them for about 4 years!

Love them!! Pricey, but worth it!

But when I don't have the cash, Dr. Scholls' inserts (with the lepoard design) works as well.

I've used them. They work really well, but as someone else mentioned, they aren't very cheap. They last a long time too.
