Dr. Scholl’s For Her Cozy Cushions Insoles

I have reviewed a few pairs of insoles this year. I never used them before, and I’m not sure that I love them, but I love the idea of what they can do. Unfortunately, it seems like I’m always disappointed when these products don’t reach their potential. This is the issue I ran into with the last insoles I tried, and it seems to be the issue with the Cozy Cushions. However, they’re not quite as problematic.

Cozy Cushions are a thick insole with two layers: a foam layer on the bottom and a furry layer on top where your feet rest. They’re supposed to keep you comfortable and warm, which is perfect for Wisconsin winters. While these are more contoured than insoles for men, I wasn’t positive they would fit into all my shoes. The package suggests they’re compatible with and “casual” shoe, winter boot or fashion boot, but I knew they were definitely too wide for my fashion boots.

I just bought a new pair of Converse, however, so I wanted to try the cozy cushions with them. Because of the two layers, I figured cutting would be more difficult than it was with your own insoles.

After I cut them down to size, they did seem to fit into my shoes quite well. I try them in my fashion boots, but they were obviously too wide, and I couldn’t even my feet into my boots with the cushions inserted because the insoles were too tall. While I could get my feet into my shoes, I had to loosen them quite a bit. To comfortable wear the shoes with the insoles, I’d probably recommend extra long laces. However, the ankles on my shoes are cut low enough that the boost from the cushions meant my foot sat at a weird height and the shoes were hitting my ankle bones.

Ultimately, I wound up taking the cushions out because it just wasn’t comfortable. Now, if these make your shoes just a little snug, you can wear them and the fur will become less plush over time. I’ve had fuzzy insoles where that happened. However, they’re just too big for the shoes I’m wearing, which are actually half a size too big to begin with. I ordered the shoes in a full size because they didn’t have half sizes. It’s a shame because the cushions are cozy.  They’re soft and squishy and offer general support. However, they don’t have arch support in particular if that’s what you’re looking for.

I wish that my review for something with “cozy” in the name was more positive, but this just wasn’t meant to be. These will work for some people with wider and taller boots, but I don’t own anything like that right now so my feet will have to wait for Dr. Scholl’s For Her Cozy Cushions. If you want to try them out, head to Amazon where they’re just $11.
