Walking on air {product review & offer}

No matter what we put our feet through they still support us. For women, we have squeezed into pointy-toe shoes, tittered on four-inch heels and beat them up by walking miles, exercising and standing on our feet. Whether we’re taking care of our family or doing something for ourselves, our feet are always busy. Even men put their feet through the ringer, some wear steel-toe boots, which I remember to be very uncomfortable from my stint in the military, and some are on their feet all day.

Since most of us don’t get the rest we need we have to take time to pamper our feet. That may involve getting a foot massage, propping your feet up for 20 to 30 minutes in the evening, wearing supportive shoes and using inserts. I recently had the chance to try Dr. Scholl’s Massaging Gel Insoles when the BzzCampaign came up on BzzAgent.com.

I was pretty excited about this one and signed up as soon as I heard about it. Not only do my feet hurt from regular “wear and tear,” but I have chronic pain throughout my body and sometimes the pressure on my feet is really bad. At first I tried them in a pair of flat, casual shoes I slip my feet into, but even with them cut down to size (which was extremely easy to do) they made my shoes a bit too tight. So, I put them into my exercise shoes – the ones with the curvy bottom to help your bottom! – and I absolutely loved them!

The gel of the insoles supported my foot and absorbed the shock of walking by using their new dual-wave design (TM) soft blue gel cushions. It honestly felt like I was walking on a pillow top mattress or that cushioned, blue floor mat that gymnastics’ center have covering the floor. The insoles are available in men’s sizes 8 to 13 and women’s sizes 6 to 10.

I’m definitely going to try the other massaging gel products including the Dr. Scholl’s Heel Pain Relief Orthotics. There are about seven varieties of the gel products. To find out about all of them, you can visit DrScholls.com.

By the way! I have quite a few $5 coupons left to share. If you send your mailing address to petulawrites@comcast.net with gel insoles in the subject line, I’ll be happy to mail one or two your way.
