Dr. Scholl's Event: My poor feet have been put through the ringer. From blisters to calluses, my tootsies have seen better days. Now that I am a mom, I am on my feet even more - running around for work and then going on adventures with my girls. Somedays I feel the weight of the world on my feet, and since I don't have a foot masseuse on call it's time to do something to calm and treat my feet.
At a recent event in NYC I learned more about taking care of my feet by using Dr. Scholl's inserts. Never having tried them before I always assumed that inserts were for serious conditions or for people who wore orthotics. This is definitely not the case and there is a fast-growing segment of people who are in pain that don't have to be by simply adding an insert into their shoes. In particular, inserts from Dr. Scholl's can provide less discomfort for women thanks to its Shock Guard Technology that is proven to provide all day pain relief. I was sold at hearing that, but got even more excited when I learned that their line targets problem-areas in the lower body - making walking more enjoyable.
Another welcome surprise was seeing the unique products for women including inserts that comforted women who wore heels and flat shoes. I loved hearing more about the For Her High Heel Insoles that are designed to shift the pressure off of the ball of your foot and then providing all day support.
Following the event, I also tested out this product and I loved how it stayed firmly in place all day while providing me with amazing comfort. There are also products specifically for the heel with the Dr. Scholl's P.R.O Pain Relief Orthodontics for Heel inserts that are designed to absorb shock reduce impact as well as an arch insert called the Dr. Scholl's P.R.O Pain Relief Orthodontics for Arch that provides extra support to prevent arch pain. I was also interested in learning more about the Dr. Scholl's P.R.O Pain Relief Orthodontics for Lower Back that is designed to absorb pain-inducing shock and treat lower back pain. What is even better is that there products are sold at drugstores everywhere and last around six months - making them an incredible value.
After I previewed the product line, I had the chance to check out the fast feet of Val Chmerkovskiy of Dancing with the Stars. Val was on-hand teach ballroom dancing all while wearing the insoles. There was also reflexology treatments, a smoothie station, tennis lessons and special appearances by LaLa Anthony, Megan Hilty and Wilmer Valderrama who were also there to support the brand and their new "Get Up and Go" campaign. Through the campaign, Dr. Scholl's wants people to treat their foot ailments and literally go - by not letting it get in the way of their life and what they love to do. With a little help from the Dr. Scholl's product line, I'm sure that won't be a problem.
