One of the many things I do is participate in something called Bzz campaigns as one of the myriad of agents who try out different products and give our honest opinion on them. I had the great good fortune to be chosen to try out the Massaging Gel Insoles from Dr. Scholl.
I was a little taken aback to read the instructions and discover that I was expected to remove the existing insoles from my shoes (I chose to try the Massaging gel insoles in my athletic shoes since I spend the most time in those). It turns out that it was surprisingly easy to remove the insoles from the shoes that are relatively unworn but I wasn't able to quite figure out how to remove the insoles from my worn favorite athletic shoes. I used the insoles from my newer pair of shoes as a template and cut the Massaging Gel Insoles down to the proper size (accompanied by a bit of muttering since I am left-handed and using standard scissors so I struggled just a little bit). Fortunately there are guides that indicate shoe size imprinted directly on the insoles that are being trimmed so that makes life a little easier.
Ok, I realized that the old insoles were so worn that they were mushed pretty flat and the Massaging Gel Insoles went in easily. Wow! What a nice difference! It was almost like having a brand new pair of shoes and my feet felt so pampered. It is summer so I am more prone to wearing flip-flops or sandals but the few times that I have used the shoes with the insoles I have to admit that it definitely made a difference. I guess that's going to take care of my excuse for not taking a nice walk regularly once the weather cools down. I admit that I thought this product was a little pricey when I first contemplated it but I definitely think that these insoles live up to their name and give your feet a wonderful massage and I certainly would recommend them to anyone who suffers from tired feet (and who doesn't?).
I appreciate the Bzz campaign for giving me this opportunity and I urge those of you who like to have your opinions heard to join at this link or feel free to leave me a message and I will send you an e-mail with an invitation.
