Wearing heels and flats were beating up my feet. Rubbing and pinching were terrorizing my toes, and my heels were rubbed from the back of my shoes. The best way to stop this is with the use of foot liners, which are like short, thin socks that remain hidden below the lines of your shoe, so you’re wearing a sock without anyone seeing it. I kept trying to find foot liners that would fit discretely in my shoes without creeping up too high to be seen, but having small sized feet made this difficult.
Most of these liners are made for groupings of sizes, so while they may be discrete in a size 7 shoe, they were peeking out of my size 5′s. I tried many types that *looked* small, but they still creeped up past my shoe for a very unattractive orthopedic look. Not the look I was going for obviously.
Then I found these Cool Contours Low Cut Liners by HUE, and hoped the “low cut” description meant they’d actually work for my little feet. I bought one pair, put them on as soon as I got home, and amazingly enough they worked! I wore them to work the next day, and my feet were so happy that I went back and bought a bunch more. I’m even thinking of buying more, I love them that much. These things seriously saved my feet.
If you decide to pick these up, make sure you get the ones that say “designed for left and right foot”, in size s/m, because these are the only ones I’ve ever found that are low enough to hide in my shoes. These don’t work for EVERY pair of shoes I own…but for those, I have another solution…
These are slingback toe liners, so they only cover your toes, and have a clear silicone strap that goes around your heel to keep them from scrunching up inside your shoe. The little strap thing slides off sometimes, and I have to fix them, but all is forgiven for the happiness they give my toes.
No more rubbing! Ever since I discovered these, I never wear my shoes without them. They make heels soooo much more comfy. Also at Bloomingdales (here) and Nordstrom stores.
