Eureka Moment: Foot Secret

Good morning everyone!  How was your weekend?  Mine was busy yet fun!  We had the chance to watch the blocked screening of The Bourne Legacy, I can't say I'm in love with the movie but I'm very happy with the various scenes that were all too familiar to me!  Though I just can't imagine how someone can drive all the way from EDSA ended up in Manila then to the fish port area! *laughs*  Don't worry, I'm not trashing, I'm quite proud and happy that our country and city was mentioned twice in the movie! :)



Yesterday, I had a full day Bridal gig and it was time to transport little Chin Chin and big Char Char (Pomeranian dogs) back to my mom's place as they were arriving from Hong Kong together with my brother who's visiting for a week!  So this week is going to be an exciting one!

Let's get down to business, eureka moment I say?

Well, a long-time reader would know how much I adore comfortable shoes!  But let's face it, there are some moments when you see a gorgeous looking pair and you would do anything to wear them no matter how uncomfortable they are only because they make your legs look leaner and longer!

Eureka Moment!  I know this is not the freshest news around and I've bought a lot of "similar ones" from different brands in the past but thanks to the GlamBox Airbrush Workshop, we were all gifted with Foot Secret products which I immediately used and fell in love with.


Heal Wing
Available in Black, Silver and Pink
Php309.00 (approx $6.00)/pair
This is a multifunctional shoe cushion that eases friction between the heels and shoe!  I have used a "gel like" version of this, I like them too but the adhesive didn't stay as long!


I like the fact that the adhesive was made by 3M!   The brand I trust for adhesives!  It comes with 3 colors and I actually like how it didn't tightened up my shoes instead, reducing the friction between my heels and the shoes!  It is super comfortable!

Strappy
Available in Lovely Pink, Milky Brown, Sexy Silver
and Modern Black
Php249.00 (approx $5.80) for 16pcs
This adds relief to sensitive ankles and heels and 
helps in preventing shoe/sandal straps from falling off or being too lose


Over the years, I've stayed away from strappy heels like a plague.  Harsh straps that could get too lose or too tight can give me blisters.  The customizable "Strappy" is best used on shoe straps and it immediately lessen the friction and adds comfort.


Both products are available at Charles & Keith Branches locally.


Do you have any secret weapon on making your feet comfortable?
Or do you just let it be and make them suffer for the sake of fashion?

    1. The secret to this is to clean the area first with a clean cloth then once you stick it, do not try to move it :)

  4. I'm currently using the one from Scholl. They work but like you said, the adhesive doesn't last a long time. I hope our local Charles and Keith brings this in! :D

    1. Scholl! I also have one but it's long one for cushioning! :) I haven't tried the ones with adhesives! The ones I mentioned here are made in Korea. So far it's doing well on me!

  9. I agree with you, I also got something like those that are gel-like but the adhesives don't last...I will check these out :)

    I have watched Bourne Legacy too and I can't stop laughing on the chasing part because of the policemen who keeps on blowing their whistles haha ^_^

    1. Well, those gel-like ones are supposed to be transferable, but since the surface gets dirty, it doesn't stick as much anymore even after washing.

      Re: Bourne Legacy, nakakatawa yung nagmumura pa in Tagalog on the background :)
