Maybe my feet are not stinky enough. I usually don’t post product reviews that don’t have me raving, but I don’t think it was Silver Linings fault that I am not raving. Silver Linings are ultra thin shoe liners that don’t alter the fit of a shoe and are infused with Agion, an antimicrobial silver based technology that prevents bacterial odor in shoes worn without socks.
Back to my feet not being stinky. I should have thought about that before I agreed to try them out. I never wear socks and my feet and shoes never stink, however this was not something that I neccesarily knew about. This product literally brought to my attention that I have weird feet that never stink.
I decided to try Silver Linings the day of my best friend’s wedding because she made us wear crazy tall Charlotte Russe shoes and I thought anything would help me not eat pavement. Even as I put them in the day of the nuptials, I thought back to the press release, these are not supposed to affect the fit… why I am putting these in? Oh, yeah… for the smell, but… (this is when it occurred to me that my feet don’t smell, ever.)
When I got back from the wedding I smelled every single one of my shoes. They basically smelt like shoes, with the slightest hint of not a shoe. How nice.
Anyhoo, here is what Silver Linings did do for me. It absorbed the dirt from my dirty feet. The linings were originally blue and they are now basically black while the shoe underneath is still nice and clean. It also absorbed the light sweat from my feet, keeping my feet from slipping too deep into the peep-toe. This is great because the last time I remember wearing too high of heel, my feet did sweat a little bit from working so hard to stay in the shoe. Between the lubrication of the sweat and the gravity of the high heel pushing me towards the front of the shoe, I ended up with my toes curling the edge and a gap at the back of the heel. This did not occur with this Charlotte Russe shoe as bad as it could have, although one of the linings did end up shuffling towards the front – that I did not like.
It is also a bit expensive. You pay $15.99 for a set of three and each pair lasts up to one month. It would be cool if you could keep switching them to other shoes, but every time you take it out of the shoe, it is a little less likely to stay put the next time you use it. Still, if stinky feet is an issue for you, it might be worth it.
My product reviews are my honest and personal opinion. I never accept payment for product reviews although I am given the sample to keep. If I am sent something that is unimpressive or boring I don’t write about it.
