MOST COMMON PROBLEM AREAS WHILE WALKING IN SHOES
As you walk in shoes, your foot slides back and forth, creating friction. In high heels, with the downward slope of the shoe, this sliding is even more prevalent. This friction leads to irritated, blistered, and sensitive feet—particularly in your toes, soles and on both sides of your feet.
SOLEWELLS® FOOT PADS SOLUTION for heels (and shoes)
Solewells® provide patented, over-the-foot protection against blisters and sensitive soles by eliminating friction caused by shoes. Specifically designed to be worn with heels, Solewells® have evolved to be worn with MOST types of shoes.
Our foot pads are thin and lightweight. They act as a second skin on key areas of your foot, providing a physical, anti-friction barrier between your feet and your shoes. Let Solewells® take on the PAIN!
Solewells® foot pads can be worn with MOST types of shoes
The reason we say MOST is because the foot pads are not designed for flip flops or thong-like shoes, plus we would hate to over promise and under deliver. Strappy shoes will make the foot pads a bit more visible than we'd like and we sure would hate to ruin your style!
Wear Solewells® foot pads with sky high or kitty heels, flats, open toe or closed, boots or sneakers. Also work well under stockings or socks.
FOOT PAD FIT AND CARE
1. PUT THEM ON
Start by putting on the fourth (4th) and pinky toe loops, followed by the big toe loop. Slide the big toe loop half way onto the toe. Then insert your index finger into the big toe loop and gently rotate the loop to position the rest of the way. Do not pull on the foot pads like socks.
2. FOR BEST FIT
Foot pad should fit snugly against the foot, like a second skin and not be loose on the sole of your foot. For a snug fit: insert your index finger into the big toe loop and gently rotate the loop. Turn the big toe loop in to tighten, out (if you have wide feet) to loosen (see image).
If the toe loops are longer than the edge of your shoe, move the loops down your toes toward your foot. Do not yank on the toe loops, insert your index finger into the big toe loop and gently rotate the loop down.
Depending on the type of shoes*
Adjust the toe loops accordingly:
* Closed toe shoes - make sure your toenails are covered by the toe loops. As you slide your foot in the shoe, try to lift the big toe slightly, to prevent foot pads from rolling up.
* Open toe shoes - lift the toe loop from the toe side and slide the toe loop down. But be sure not to go too far from the edge of your toenail.
You should be able to see a small section of the sole pad between your big and second toes. If you do not see it, the foot pad is too high up your foot.
Put shoes on immediately after Solewells® foot pads. DO NOT walk around in foot pads without shoes.
4. CARE & REUSE
Wash with warm water and liquid soap under the faucet. Lay flat to dry on a paper towel. Store in the original box. Throw in your bag and they are ready to be reused!
Solewells® foot pads are strong but delicate, treat them like your favorite pantyhose and you will get several wears out of them. Alternatively, rough treatment may expire foot pads sooner. This is a guideline only.
