When I head out for a day or evening event where I am wearing heels, I am always wondering how long will I have in wearing those heels comfortably. When I evaluate going to an event, I think about where I have to park and how far I have to walk to get to the event and then how long I will be standing at that event. It does affect a girl’s longevity and good time when her feet start hurting and you have to peel off the shoes as soon as you leave and walk down the street or into a garage to get back to one’s car.

I know many women that want to wear their gorgeous shoes for an event but often bring another pair to swap out of because they have at most 60 minutes of pain-free wear of gorgeous stilettos or sandals. While men often suggest that women should wear more comfortable shoes, sometimes the fashion statement of a fabulous pair of shoes will captivate a girl so much that she buys the luxe look for the immediate gratification and she will worry about “the pain” later.
Guess what: there are solutions to eliminate the hobbling in that incredible pair of sky-high Louboutins– and it doesn’t involve you trading in your other stilettos or three -plus inch heels in boots or sandals either!
Disclosure: I was given a pair of arch supports so that I could review them. The opportunity to try them gives me the “real-time, real-life” experience of using them- which is crucial to the review process. The gift of the arch supports doesn’t affect my evaluation of these supports at all.
I am sure you have heard of orthotics. They are inserts into your shoes to correct imbalances in your posture from the feet up. The biggest issue with orthotics is that they don’t always fit your highest heels and that means you have problems wearing the gorgeous shoes with – or without- the orthotics.
Guess what, that’s NOT the answer. The answer is arch supports and I am not talking about the ones you see in your grandmother’s shoes. These are great inserts and they are very effective in re-aligning your posture and how you walk.

The Leader in Making Fashion and Casual Footwear Comfortable and Supportive
Arch support insoles or as we say arch supports that can be attached to the insole of your shoe regardless of style to provide your foot with the extra support it needs for you to walk comfortably can make a huge difference. Most women’s shoes that are sold today are made to appeal to women who are looking for a fashion statement first and a comfort statement second. They are designed to attract women who are looking for cute, hot, sexy and not necessarily comfort or support. Women usually get an emotional hit when at a shoe store looking to buy shoes. It is either the right color, design or style that will attract them to that particular shoe. The last thing on their mind is “will it be comfortable” unless they are particularly looking for a walking, athletic or flat shoe. Even when shopping for sandals or flip flops the shoes have to be cute, pretty, sexy hot or something that gets their attention. Applying arch support insoles to the insole of your shoe is the first step in making that shoe more comfortable, supportive and wearable for longer periods of time. The arch support insole placed in the right spot in your shoe will prevent the arch of your foot from collapsing, help eliminate ball of the foot pain and joint pain.
These arch supports come in 3 different colors (black, tan, gray) and you choose which shoe style in which you want to use it: sport shoes (like athletic shoes), sandals (of any type) and closed toe heels!
I was sent a single pair of arch support inserts to test drive. I immediately looked at them to see just how big they were. They look just like the photos you see in this post. They are not hard plastic. The arch supports are very comfortable when you have them properly placed in your shoes.
I put the arch supports into a pair of LL Bean booties with 3 inch+ heels that lace up the front and have a side zipper. They are my favorite booties and I was heading to an event in Hollywood with a good friend for the evening. Great booties, but often I find that walking around for any length of time isn’t a pleasant experience since I often had pain in the ball of the foot due to the angle of the heel and the design of the arch. The Instant Arches insert was so perfect that I could not believe it. I wore those boots over 5 hours and I had no problem walking around. I didn’t feel the pain I had previously had and I noticed that my posture and gait were much better. I love these inserts. I am ordering one of their specials: buy 3, get 1 free. I will be ordering 2 of the sandals, 2 of the closed toe arch supports. I can’t wait to put them into a couple of my sky-high sandals.
NOTE: These inserts are not to be swapped out and moved to other shoes. Once you place them, leave them there–which suddenly makes the purchase of multiple inserts very smart!
The cost of these arch supports: $12.00 per pair. Buy 3, get 1 FREE! Buy 6, get 2 free! Buy 12, get 3 free!!
These arch supports are suitable for just about anybody and any type of shoe. Email or call the website to ask questions.Order them NOW so that you have them on hand when you hit the holiday parties!
