Scholl Gel Activ Women's Open Shoes Insoles Review How to Use

16€ for a pair

The gel is made of a thermoplastic elastomer that is used in a wide variety of products including insoles.

My experience with Scholl Gel Activ Women’s Open Shoes Insoles:

The packaging is good and secure. It comes in a cardboard box with a transparent cover on top. One can see the texture and color of the product. Inside it is a pair of transparent insoles. The insoles have a sticky side which is protected with a thin film. The insole actually sticks inside the shoe and does not budge or slip. Of course, you can re-apply it, in the case of error but you know how irritating it can be. Since the insoles are transparent, no one will notice them when you take off the shoes.

These insoles are made for open shoes and hence are made very sleek and slender. When used with open shoes one cannot see the insoles at any corner this is because of esthetic reasons. But due to the narrow design, broad feet people like me will find it uncomfortable. I can feel the edge of insoles digging in to my soles and causing pain. I have broad foot and hence it is not best for me.
The material is quite soft and feels like cushion. Over all, it is very similar to other insoles from Scholl. I have tried using it in my pumps and also found it very uncomfortable. I planned not to use it any further. The insoles are easy to stick to the footwear. They can be easily reused on various footwears. The product also lasts a long time. Of course, it depends on the intensity of usage too. Lastly, it does not crowd toes.

There are few more cons other than being uncomfortable. The insoles cannot be washed. One has to wipe it with a wet cloth and these should be air-dried before reusing. Since this pair is intended for open footwear it tends to get dirty even more when compared to closed footwear. Since the material is silicon, it might warm up the foot especially during hot summers. The heat might lead to sweaty feet.
Overall it’s a good insole but not for people with broad foot. If you have narrow foot, you can reap the benefits of this insole.
