FAQ

How do torturedSoles work?

torturedSoles anti-slip pads prevent irritation caused by uncomfortable shoes while keeping your back heel and foot from sliding around inside your shoe. Our technology was scientifically developed to give you the best grip and most reliable foot protector on the market.

Apply torturedSoles to your heel, foot, or sole - anywhere on your foot or inside shoe where your shoes cause discomfort. You can also affix torturedSoles directly on hosiery. torturedSoles non-slip pads stay in place for up to six hours (usually longer on skin) and up to months inside shoes.

For more information on how they work, visit our How It Works page.

When should I wear torturedSoles?

Many people wear torturedSoles with high heels or other uncomfortable shoes anywhere from work to nights out, special events, and weddings. 

We've also heard people are using them other places like on their thumbs when bowling, fingers when using gardening tools (under gloves) - anywhere a blister or irritation my occur. 

Do not wear torturedSoles with ill-fitting shoes; our products are not intended to fix shoes that are too large or too small.

Can I wear torturedSoles more than once?

We do not recommend wearing torturedSoles more than once for your safety, as the adhesive will be less effective each time you wear the product.

Add water to any torturedSoles product adhesive to make it stickier or sticky again.

Why are torturedSoles better than drugstore products?

We tried every drugstore product on the market and found that most foot pads or first aid solutions are bulky, fall off, look unattractive, and simply don’t work.

Our products were scientifically-developed with top-grade adhesive and polyester materials with a non-slip coating to remain in place for up to six hours (usually longer on skin) and up to months inside shoes. Give them a try - you won’t believe how well they grip your heels! Our anti-slip pads won’t damage hosiery or linings and usually make the fit of your shoe better.

Will torturedSoles damage my shoes?

No. We developed torturedSoles with adhesive that sticks well to your skin. Our non-slip coating grips the inside of your shoes without the use of any adhesives. People are also using them on the inside of their shoes - the adhesive doesn't damage the lining and wipes clean with warm water.
