Solution: Good-Looking Shoes Don't Have To Kill Your Feet

Perhaps you're stoked about being able to take your favorite tall boots out of summer retirement. Or maybe you're just glad that those toe-torturing flip flops are heading off into the sunset for another year. Whatever your current shoe mood, there's no denying it's a season to get serious about shoe comfort. Dr. Scholl's is hip to the plight of women everywhere, and they've developed a whole line of just-for-gals foot fixes that go beyond the occasional peppermint pedi to hit discomfort where it lives.


Best for Pumps: Towering stilettos have a whole host of bad habits, not the least of which is chafing in the too-tight areas around the back of your heels and the tops of your feet. There's nothing worse than those deep red grooves you see when you take those pumps off for a quick breather. Eliminate digging and chafing with a few swipes of Miracle Shield ($6), a silicon-based lubricant stick that's similar to what distance runners use to curb friction and its disastrous side effects.

Best for Open Toes:
I'll admit it: I've been known to buy a pair of cheapo shoes if I know I'm only gonna wear them once. I padded the rims of some deep-deep-discount (read: cheaply made) open-toes with Rub Relief Strips ($7) and got nary a blister. The strips are kind of like Bubble Tape in that they come in a huge roll and you just snip and stick where you need a little extra cushioning. A roll can really go the distance, and the strips make your comfort customizable.

Best for Boots: I am a total sucker for those "I'm So Gellin'" commercials (what? I can appreciate a good pun!) so I'm thrilled Dr. Scholl's developed a line of gel insoles specifically designed for women's feet. Their Comfort Gel Insoles ($9) pamper you from ball to heel, with shock-absorbing gel set in a gentle massaging pattern. For any boots with heels higher than riding boots', these discreet, clear-gel insoles are a less-than-$10 upgrade that can't be overlooked.
