Product Review: Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats – Cute and Comfy


Dr. Scholl’s conjures up images of thick, white orthopedic shoes…not light, comfortable flats. So about a year ago when they first came out with their Fast Flats, I was initially skeptical. A comfortable pair of shoes that fits in your purse? Yeah, right. Even if the brand is known for comfort, it just couldn’t be possible.

Well, I had a job interview before going to my temp job one day and wore heels. By the time I finished with the interview and got to work, my feet were killing me. Fortunately, the flu shot clinic I was working at that day, was at a Walmart and I was able to pick up a pair of Fast Flats.

They were not what I expected. Well, to be fair, I had no expectations. For something that folds up and fits in your purse, they were sturdy. They were comfortable. They were cute! They felt great! My feet were grateful. I could walk again.

I recommend these for spoonies who frequently or infrequently wear dress shoes. They fold up and fit neatly in a purse or drawer and can be slipped on in a pinch to give your feet a break from less comfortable shoes.

    Aren’t we silly to wear uncomfortable shoes in the first place? For most of my life I have worn high heels and other shoes that were bad for my feet and killed after an hour or sometimes less. Now I generally only wear shoes that are comfortable.

    I do think these “fast flats” would be great to own though. I could see wearing my boots in winter and then slipping these on when I go into someone’s house.

    PS I saved one pair of dressy heels for weddings and funerals.

  • A public speaker once told me that to stay comfortable in dress shoes have at least two if not three pair and rotate through the shoes every hour or two.

    I’ve seen these before and wondered. While I cannot wear much beyond heels\flats it would be nice to have once winter boot weather is here. Boots get so heavy!

    Thanks for the review. Will have to check these out.
