It's time for another Influenster review! This time I was able to test out Dr. Scholl's Active Series. This is actually the second time this year I was sent a Dr. Scholl's product - BzzAgent sent me the high heel inserts earlier this year. I definitely prefer to Active Series over the high heel inserts - I have big feet (size 9 1/2 or 10) and there is not a ton of extra room in my heels so those inserts took up too much real estate. My running shoes are a bit roomier so the inserts fit just fine. I have been having some foot issues over the past few months (gross story to follow in a later post), and these took some of the pressure off my feet when I work out. They are quite comfortable and are very nicely made.
The only issue I have with the inserts is that since I have to trim them (see where my foot landed on the top left of the image above), it doesn't have a nice finished edge anymore. I am more than a little OCD, so that sort of thing bothers me. I would much rather purchase an insert that is my size (instead of one that is for size 6-11) so I don't have to trim it. The product hasn't frayed much yet, but I could definitely see this leading to a shorter life than if I didn't trim it at all.
That being said, I would definitely buy this again. I bought Dr. Scholl's long before any of my free goodie services sent me some, and I will continue to buy them long after.
