The average woman falls in love 7 times a year. Only 6 are with Shoes. - Kenneth Cole
Surely that number is a lot higher for most of us and even though I have an immense love for my footwear, occasionally I do run across a pair that are not as comfortable or as wearable as I need them to be. I remember a few years ago, I found a gorgeous pair of Betsey Johnson wedges at DSW. Unfortunately for me, my foot kept sliding forward in them and if I went up a full size, they would be way too big for me. There was no way that I was leaving them in the store, so I settled on to the fact that I would be walking on eggshells when I wore them out. That is until I found out about Foot Petals.
Foot Petals is a company that offers insole cushions that are made from high performance urethane and poron which absorbs shock, repels moisture, bacteria and odor.
My favorite thing about them is that they add extra stability to high heels (and flats) and provides an extra layer of cushioning to the ball of my foot. Their products range from tip toes which are cushions for the ball of the foot, killer kushionz which are 3/4 insoles, amazing arches which are cushions for the arch, heavenly heels which are cushions for the back of the heel and so much more!
As if I needed another reason to love them, Foot Petals ran a contest on their Facebook page looking for a great shoe closet from one of their fans. In order to enter, fans had to post pictures of their shoe closet and from the pool of entries, 10 finalists would then be chosen to compete in a fan vote off of who had the best shoe closet. The prize was a $500 Amazon.com giftcard. I entered with my shoe room picture and never in a million years did I think I would be a finalists or even the winner!
So you can imagine when they announced me as their winner, I just about fell off of my bed, ran around my house, screamed about five times, and ran around some more.
Seriously, this is real! I received my giftcard in the mail a few weeks later! I still haven't picked out what to spend it on but I have one pair of boots in mind that I may splurge for (keep an eye out because I'll be updating this with more pictures when I do)!
Foot Petals really gives the tools to remind us that shoe love is indeed the truest love of all!
