Dr. Scholls For Her Cozy Cushions - Influenster Product Review

**all items received free from Influenster

Time for another product review from my Rose VoxBox from Influenster.  This time, it's Dr. Scholls inserts.  These are ones that I had eyed up at the store before deciding on another pair and then a week or 2 later received the box with these in it.
~should work in rain boots, winter boots, casual boots & shoes and dress boots~

Whether you’re looking for insoles for your favorite heels or flats, or anti-friction products to help prevent shoe rubbing and blisters, the Dr. Scholl’s® For Her line has a solution for you. The entire collection enables you to enjoy the things you want to do – not just the things you need to do – by enhancing foot comfort. 
Dr. Scholl's® For Her Cozy Cushions help keep feet warm and dry while providing all-day comfort. Their multi-layer design helps insulate the foot while two plush layers provide extra cushioning. Cozy Cushions help keep feet dry by absorbing perspiration and offer superior support on hard surfaces. 
  • Helps keep feet warm and dry
  • Provides support for any boot or casual shoe
  • Offers superior support on hard surfaces
My thoughts:
I had high hopes for these, but I ended up with mixed feelings.  I put them in my tennis shoes since for the most part it hasn't quite been "snow boot" weather yet (or on days that it has been I haven't needed to go out).  By the way - the directions weren't kidding when they said to use a sharp pair of scissors.
~convenient lines to cut along prevents the guess work of where to trim for each size~

For medium-long days (up to around 6 hours or so) when I'm walking around a lot in Fall weather, they do keep my feet comfy and warm.  But once the temperature started to drop down into the mid to low 30s and lower, my feet weren't completely warm.  That could be because they are in my tennis shoes which has a "mesh" area over the toe box so my feet get a draft in cool weather.  Completely closed shoes, such as a pair of boots, would probably have different results so I'm not holding that against the Cozy Cushions.

But the more noticeable, and important, thing was if I was on my feet for all day long errands, by around hour 7-8 the arches of my feet were starting to ache from not having the proper support that they need.  So unless I can stack these over a pair of my regular arch-supporting insoles, I have to be mindful of how long I anticipate being on my feet.

At over $12 a pair from Walmart, I find them lacking in the support my feet need for comfortable all-day wear.  I've only been able to test these out in the Fall weather so far, where the temperatures are all over the place.  I haven't been able to test them in true winter conditions for warmth yet - our true winter hits sometime in January typically, but once the time comes I'll probably move these into my snow boots and see how they really do for warmth.  I do have to say that on the occasional warmer day that I've been out and wearing these, my feet did not get too hot.

So, would I purchase these?  If I found them on sale, then I would consider it for shoes/boots that already have the proper support my arches require.  But for full price, probably not.  To see the full product line of Dr. Scholls, click here.

Have you tried the Dr. Scholls For Her Cozy Cushions?  Like them or not so much?  What's your favorite product from the Dr. Scholls line?
