Sold on Insolia

Hour 5

Earlier this month, I mentioned here that Jen recommended Insolia shoe inserts, which allow "her to dance the night away in 4-inch stilettos."

Jen, online reviews, and other customer comments on the Insolia website were very convincing, so I ordered a set of inserts and had an opportunity to test them when I spent the day en femme on Tuesday.

I chose my Nine West red and black patent Mary Janes for the test. Previously, my feet screamed for relief after about four hours in those shoes, so I figured they would be a good test shoe for the Insolia inserts. (I also brought along a pair of comfortable heels in case I needed them.)

I am happy to report that the inserts worked. I wore the Nine West Mary Janes for over nine hours on Tuesday; I was able to walk as normally in Hour 9 as I had in Hour 1 with only some annoying pain in Hour 9 that did not exist in Hour 1.

Yes, my feet hurt after nine hours, but the pain was not disabling as it was in the past wearing those 4-inch heels for only four hours.

I look forward to using the inserts in my other favorite heels, especially heels that had been more foot friendly in the past than the Mary Janes. I bet I will easily break the 9-hour mark in those heels.


  1. Glad to hear the inserts worked so well.

    By the way, very nice picture. You do look great in that dress and it's no wonder that those shoes are your favorites. So cute.

    Hi Stana
    I have to get those heels & I will try the inserts also.
    You look great as always

  3. I'm glad to hear you are sold on the inserts :) I bought them for all my heels and although my feet still hurt when I walk around in heels for extended periods of time , the pain is much less intense. I love heels so much I was not going to stop wearing them just because they hurt! I'm glad I could be of help!

  4. That dress is a definite winner! You look wonderful in that photograph!

    A bit off topic maybe but still shoe related, have you ever owned or thought about thigh high or OTK boots, teamed with a short dress and tights? Some think them slutty but I can rock the look because I have the legs for them and look very fashionable. It's a look you have to be comfortable wearing but I get a lot of compliments, mainly from men ( and like you if I don't want to go down that track I flash my ring)

  6. Anonymous --- I have never owned thigh-high or OTK boots, but it is something to consider for the fall. (The tallest boots I own are these.)
