Footminders review

I'm an admitted shoe hoarder!  My biggest weakness, adorable heels!  Can you feel me on this one ladies?  My biggest issue is that heels are so uncomfortable, can you feel me on that one?  So, after watching my husband get amazing relief from his specially made orthopedics, I decided that maybe this was an answer for me.  Only issue is I can't afford to go and get a few hundred dollar orthopedics specially made, especially when its to relieve the pain from heels not caused by years of crushing my feet from power lifting like the hubby had.  Dilemma, hmmm, solution!

Footminders asked me to review their catwalk orthopedics I jumped at the chance.  I received my catwalks, love the name, and slide them in my heels.  Ah, it felt so much better than without. Let me say that $21.95 is way easier on the budget the the hundreds spent on ones from a podiatrist!

I did notice however that my calves were more soar than normal and my posture had been better during the day which lead to me feeling muscles I hadn't been using when wearing heels due to over compensation that happens when your body is faced with an unnatural position to move in.  I'm confident that once the proper muscles are re-developed this sore feeling will leave and it was still far better than what I had been experiencing!   Now, if only I had a few dozen more for each shoe!  Even though they are interchangeable, I can get lazy and it would be easier to just get a pair for each shoe I own.  Sadly, it's not in the budget but maybe I can swing an extra pair for the upcoming weddings?  What do you think?  Would this be a good idea for a bride?
