Preheels: Heels Don't Have to Hurt You!

Press Sample

I love wearing high heels! From the look it gives lengthening my legs to giving my backside a little extra oomph to the just making me look taller, there isn't much about heels that I don't like. My biggest issue with high heels, besides the issue of finding those that are comfortable with my high arches and wide feet, is breaking them in and trying to avoid the dreaded blisters. No matter how much time I spent slowly breaking in my heels, I always inevitably end up with blisters on the back of my heel. UNTIL NOW! Preheels has released a simple spray that prevents irritation and blisters with a fast-dry application.

The propriety formula is simple to use and yet incredibly effective. With just one single spray application, the formula dries to form a barrier on the skin that blocks friction from your shoes, preventing hot spots, irritations, and blisters from forming. Where one-size DOES NOT fit all pads and bandages may slip as you walk or just not quite fit your shoes (not to mention just looking unsightly), Preheels conforms to YOUR body to give you the ultimate personal protection that is flexible and moves WITH you.

Preheels is easy to use with a quick spray application by holding the bottle four inches away from the location you want added protection. The area is try after approximately 90 seconds, and you can follow up with a second or even third layer for stronger, longer-lasting coverage. I opted to test this stray out with two quick coats so I wouldn't have to worry about irritation while in my heels for approximately six hours of wearing. Depending on the specific shoes I am wearing, I have sprayed Preheels on the back of my heel, along my ankles where my straps occasionally like to rub, and the top of the toe box for some of my newer shoes that weren't quite as broken in as some of my others. In each of these cases, I am happy to report that I had no irritation in any of these areas! I've not used Preheels with these shoes for any longer than about six hours, but since it is reported to start to breakdown at about that time, you can easily add another coat if needed.

The Preheels solution is clear and dries to an invisible finish as long as you use thin coats to build it up. If you spray with a heavy hand, you can see the barrier the slightest bit, but even then, you have to really be looking at your ankles/feet/wherever you might have sprayed it. It is not fragrance-free, and this is one of the features that may be a deterrent for some individuals. The scent is very chemically and not too unlike the older hairsprays I used to use in my hair. The smell seems to fade as the solution dries on your skin, although I'll be honest and say I've not actually smelled my feet to be sure. It's possible to scent still is present and just isn't as strong as when freshly applied to the skin. Once your need to the Preheels has past and you've kicked off your heels for the day, the protective barrier washes off easily with warm soapy water and a gentle scrubbing with a washcloth.

I am excited to add heels back into my daily life now that I have been introduced to Preheels! It really does live up to the claim of preventing blisters, and I like that it lasts a long time without having to worry about ugly bandages or balms rubbing off onto my shoes. We're always on our feet and rarely give them the proper attention they deserve; it's about time we introduce our feet to their new BFF!

Preheels is available for purchase at Preheels.com in 1.5oz and 2.5oz bottles for $14.99 and $22.99 respectively. You can also purchase a 2-piece set containing one of each size for $35.00 or a trio of 0.5oz mini bottles for $30.00. Whether your feet or ankles need protection from constant wearing of heels or you just have new shoes that haven't been broken in yet, Preheels is there for you!

Have you tried Preheels? I'd love to hear how it worked for you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
