When I’m heading out on the town in high heels, I often cringe with every step, knowing obstacles such as street grates, cracks, and cobblestone lie ahead. Nothing ruins my day like a new scuff or gouge on my beloved heels. That’s why, when I heard about IdealHeel I was intrigued to learn more and try them for myself. Basically, IdealHeel is a sturdy rubber accessory that slips easily over stiletto heels to protect them from damage, so you can “Practice Safe Steps”. Sounds great, right? Let’s put them to the test…
I received the two pairs of IdealHeel pictured above for review – one Medium in brown and one Tall in black. Medium IdealHeel is great for 2″-3″ high heels, while Tall is more suitable for heels up to 4″ high. I slipped the Tall IdealHeel protectors over my new Giuseppe Zanotti leopard pumps (bought from ElisaV’s eBay store, still gushing!) and went on a walk around the block.
I’m pleasantly surprised that the protectors don’t make my shoes look ugly, in fact I kind of like the thicker heel! They are sturdy and have good traction on gravel and in the grass. I can easily slip them off my shoes and throw them in my bag when I reach my destination.
Verdict: A+ Seriously, IdealHeel is the best heel protector I’ve tried because it protects the entire heel and it seems durable too! The only downside is that IdealHeel is made to fit standard pumps and stilettos, so if the bottom of your heel is wider than a dime, or if the heel is dramatically wider at the top, your heels may be too thick for this product.
