So the All Day Heels did not work for me... at least not with the 10cm high shoes I wore to dinner last Friday night. So sadly rather than gracefully walking home in my heels like I used to back in the day, I hobbled home in pain.
Although the instructions explain that correct placement in the shoe is the most tricky bit and the key to good results, I found that removing the backing to expose the sticky side was the most challenging. I swear I wrecked about 3 fingernails doing so! I actually think that the placement was quite easy and that I did a good job since I did not feel them in my shoes - at all. This is a good thing, yes, but I now query whether this is why they didn't work FOR ME? Maybe my inner arches are too high for this invention?
Also maybe not all shoes are made equal? Maybe the shoe last that my D&G pumps were designed around were flawed? As you can see this product has left me with more questions than answers... For some reason I can walk for miles in my ACNE Pistols (and I could walk around the world in my IM Dickers) without developing debilitating pain. Yes my feet are sore after a whole day in my Pistols, but I don't hobble!
Nevertheless, before I give up on these acclaimed inserts, I am going to try popping them into a pair of Country Road mid-heels which should be comfy, but aren't. Fingers crossed.
