We all love wearing heels. High Heels. We all dream of Jimmy Choo and Gucci and Prada heels. But maintaining feet is very important so that those gorgeous pairs can be worn over a long time. I care about my feet. When hypothyroid was detected, I was in lot of pain, pain in feet, pain in joints, pain in hands. This was in 2010. I could not wear heels for almost an year. And then I realised the importance of joints and caring for them. If you suffer from hypothyroid, then please do get your levels of calcium and Vitamin D tested as there is a big chance of deficiency of these and that results in lots of pains at lots of places.
From the last post, you already know that I am again in self caring mode ;). But this time, when my tests started, I was disgonosed of high thyroid and very low Vitamin D levels. Hmmmm… I am on increased Eltroxin – 125mcg since then and a Vitamin D supplement. Now my doctor is starting calcium supplement from tomorrow. I am taking all. Rest on God.
Coming back to gel cushions, these do work. As we age and mature in life, our feet deserve more attention and care. These heel cushions come very handy in all types of closed shoes, be it flats or heels, athletic shoes, sneakers etc. You just put them in soles of shoes and start walking. Enjoy.

My Experience with Gel Heel Cushions –
I like these gel cushions. I got two of these. One for my comfort and one as a necessity for Ritcha who loves wearing high heels and since I don’t want her to suffer from knee and heel problems which are quite common these days, we got these heel cushions and a full sole for her. I will review the soles too soon.
These products may not be foolproof, but they protect our precious heels to some extent. These heel cushions are quite easy to use. You just need to place them in any footwear you are going to wear. No sticking or fixing. You can use one pair for every footwear you own. But since they don’t stick, I find them better for the shoes which are closed from rear.
One size fits all. Since these are gel cushions, extensive using them will ruin them soon, but no problem, we can always get a new one, no!! May be I would try some other variant next time 🙂.
- Very soft and comfortable.
- One size fits all.
- One pair can be used in any number of footwear.
- Gel based, nicely cushioned.
- Relives heel discomfort.
- Supports arch.
- Easily available.
- Since these are not fixed in shoes, these may slip a bit in open sandals.
- Quite expensive. Even if one pair fits all, the wear and tear will occur soon!!
Overall, it is a usable product and since it doesn’t cost sky high, you can always try it 🙂.
Lots of love
