Being a teacher I am on my feet all day. Teaching, walking from my room to the copier (1 million times), walking around to students’ desks, walking to lunch, walking to the office… it is definitely not a sedentary job! I love this about my job- moving around and having something different every day are probably my favorite parts! But, I also have a bad back (I had spinal surgery when I was 19) and comfortable shoes are necessary for survival! Enter: Foot Petals Sock-free Saviors! When I brought out my spring shoes this year, they were in rough shape… and honestly didn’t smell the best. I had to throw them away they were so bad! So I let myself buy a new pair! I got these guys and love the little gold detailing. They were comfortable on their own, but I wanted to make them extra cushy- and ensure they weren’t smelly next year! I cut the Foot Petals to size (I used small- I wear a size 5.5 and that wasn’t small enough! Luckily the Foot Petals fit any size, so I just cut off a little more!). Then I slid them in the shoes. And voila! I am ready to teach all day in these things! April 1st was National Walk to Work Day- even though I am a bit to far to walk to work, I was happy to have these insoles when I was walking at work! Who knows what the subjunctive is? No one… well take notes then!
Other nice things about these insoles: -They aren’t sticky on the bottom so I can put them in different pairs of shoes!
-They are washable! I can throw them in the wash and all of the smelly shoe smell is gone!
-They fit any size shoes- I have tiny feet and often other inserts don’t offer inserts that small.
-They are under $20. $20 for a product I can wear in multiple shoes and wash when I need to? Sign me up!
