Scholl Party Feet Trial Team
100 female reviewers aged between 18 and 35 who have suffered the pain of sore feet after wearing heels for extended periods of time (while shopping, dancing, and standing for hours).
Overall star rating during this trial*:
Scholl Party Feet Invisible Gel Cushion inserts have been designed to help ease the burning feeling you get in the balls of your feet after wearing heels for too long.
Overall, members were thrilled by how much the gel inserts helped relieved the pain caused by wearing high heels. Many mentioned that the cushions enabled them to wear their heels without experiencing pain for a lot longer and, if they did start to feel any pain, it wasn’t at severe as when they weren’t using the gel cushions.
Testers were also pleased that the inserts were reusable, allowing them to be transferred between pairs of heels (some did find the inserts lost some of the stickiness if they transferred them too often, but they said it was to be expected.) A few members also mentioned that if used in shoes that were a snug fit, the inserts would make the shoes feel a bit tight, so recommened to use them in shoes that had some more room.

“Without these inserts, I'd be lucky to survive an hour in my uncomfy shoes. However, with these in, we're talking about a whole day without any uncomfortable feeling in the balls of my feet. Talk about amazing!” – Rei_. Read more…
“I couldn't use them with some boots as the boots were too close-fitting - not really the fault of the product, more the fault of me for picking such tight shoes to trial them with...” – Pooky. Read more...
“They are so comfortable to have in your shoes and really give relief to the main pressure points on the bottom of your feet where you naturally distribute most of your body weight onto.” – Candyfairy. Read more…
“The gel cushion gives a good amount of support and alleviates the pain I usually feel when I sport high heels. I am not a regularly high heel wearer for this reason, because I don't like that 'walking on knives' feeling. The next day after wearing the gel cushions, my feet felt normal and comfortable.” – von-nation. Read more…
