What do you think of this?

What model vans is it ? I have a pair and got blister back of heel and top of the foot. I think just a thicker pair of liner socks should do the trick. But sometimes high priced brands aren’t about practical but name and design😒

I got some , mainly to put on on top of "healthy feet cream" to avoid it quickly rubbing off while sitting down or even in bed . They are very good for that . I've never tried wearing them all the time just to keep the cream in contact with my heels (which get very dry and cracked ) and avoid it rubbing off .

Ann1984 Yes should do I go them for the base of my heel and wear them after I have applied the cream (so it stops the cream rubbing off onto my slippers or bedclothes ). They are supposed to also be good for wearing all the time but I haven't tried them under shoes etc .Now what I can recommend for plasters that won't rub off https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01EAZHGM0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . They stay stuck ! Come in strips I use them on my fingers all the time as all other plasters (including elastoplast ) just slide off after a short time . Also used those plasters on my heels when they were badly cracked and they stayed stuck even on my sweaty feet !

Ann1984 Shame I'm not in Wales , I have a cupboard full bought 8 packs last time as the first lot I got were so good . As they don't slip off I don't use so many , just cut off a half inch wide strip and you have a plaster that stays stuck for a fraction of the price πŸ˜€.

Golfforall and Ann1984 I'd never heard of them and my first thought was they'd cause/encourage athlete's foot but I just had a look and now I 'get' what they are ... brilliant idea thanks.

BORDERJOE Not sure you could wear them all day (under shoes and socks ) as they tend to slide around on your feet . But for keeping foot/cracked heel cream from rubbing off when in slippers or in bed they are great (and surprisingly comfortable ) .

Ann1984 has she tried heel grips or heel cushions similar to these (other makes are available) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Heel-Grips-Shoes-Too-Big/dp/B077YT2R1Q or https://www.amazon.co.uk/Heel-Cups/b?ie=UTF8&node=2826589031

Ann1984 If they ride up off her feet maybe try those plaster strips round the back of the back of the heel . Cut an inch or two off the strip and they will stay stuck , even in the bath .

Ann1984 Or you could always suggest she wears "sensible shoes " πŸ™„, Skechers are really comfortable straight out of the box . Even their golf shoes .
