I particularly loved the fact they are so easy to put on and being so cozy I didn’t feel like taking them off even at home!

One more thing…

If you still feel like getting an extra support for your feet, simply buy a pair of so called ‘foot pillows’, ‘gel cushions’ or ‘comfy soles’ (depending on a chosen style of your shoes). They are cheap, invisible when put inside and will provide you with an extra comfort when you wear any type of flat shoes.

The technology used by Scholl conveys two gels that effectively absorb shock and reduce the pressure felt on your feet – a firmer gel that supports the arches of your feet and your heels, plus a softer one to ensure the optimum shock absorption.

They are great for pregnancy, especially for those of you who are still working or standing longer hours.
