Scholl Shoe Pads

After seeing my poor feet suffered of blisters from new shoe syndrome, my mum suggested me to go to Guardian to buy some padding for shoes. Once I was in front of the padding section, I was amazed by the variety of paddings that Scholl offers. Besides that there were some Guardian brand as well.

When I saw this Heel Leather Liners (RM8.70), I know I must get one pair for myself.

It is made of real leather and improves the fit of loose fitting shoes.

It has a tiny and long cushion behind for comfort and to relieve pressure.

It also helps to prevent friction and heel slip. So I straight away sticked it onto my new Elements shoe, as the shoe was a bit loose for me.

After wearing this shoe for today (walked from lrt to my office, then to lunch, then from office to the lrt), I didnt feel any pain and it helps the shoe to fit my feet nicely. Luckily no blisters. Hehe. Just now on the way back, I bought another pair of this padding. Thought of sticking it to all my shoes. Hahaha.

Then I bought Air-Pillo comfort Half Insoles (RM5.30)for my working court shoes. The front part of my court shoes got thinner as time passed. I can feel the wood at the bottom as the cushion getting thinner and thinner. Whenever I walked on hard surface, my front foot pain like pain, the impact was so hard.

This is not made of leather as the above padding. It is somewhat like sponge-type material to cushion your foot.

So, stuffed it into my court shoes.

However, it became tighter. :-( Without the padding, my shoes fit me nicely, but with padding, it became tighter. Sigh. Tried to walk in office the whole morning, but I just couldnt take it as the bottom of my feet started with some symptoms of blisters already. So I took the pad off. Hehe.

Scholl offers wide range of padding and the most expensive being the gel type ones (~RM20). They offers these small round padding to put at the blister-prone spot in your shoes. Will get few of these to stick to my shoes so that my toes wont have blisters. LOL.
