If you’ve ruined more than one of your high heels when facing the elements in everyday life, you’re not alone. And although it would be great to use our stilettos as mere occasional props, a “wear only while sitting” rule is not a practical solution for protecting them from nicks & rips! So in the name of shoe care, I’ll be discussing some of the best gadgets (ie high heel protectors!) to keep your heeled investments safe. Because we all want to have our high heels & wear them too
Luckily for us, many innovative companies have come out with shoe accessories in the form of high heel savers for shoes. There are some seriously amazing products out there to save our high heels from practically anything. Including, but not limited to: cobblestones, grass, sand & even our own car interiors, while driving. The Best High Heel Protectors For, Like, Everything
Heel savers come in many forms, shapes, sizes, colors — heck — even transparencies! Some of them are heel caps, others, high heel covers & guards. But no matter how you categorize them, each product exists to serve & protect your heels from unfortunate circumstances. And I’ve scoured the best high heel protectors available on the market & divvied them up by use.
So what is a heel protector, you ask? They’re essentially heel savers for shoes that protect either the heel tip, heel shaft or both. These accessories are used mostly for preventing damage to dainty stilettos, which are prone to damage, not to mention more easily sink into the ground!
So, where can I buy high heel protectors, you ask? Patience, my friends, patience! Why don’t I list some out to start, so you can become more familiar with the concept & we take it from there, ok? Moving on!
High Heel protectors for grass
Let’s face it: stilettos often venture where they likely shouldn’t. So it comes as no surprise that one of the most sought-out heel protection accessories are those that prevent heels from sinking into grass & getting ruined.
Like at a wedding or garden party where grassy lawns come into play. And you can’t really wear flats to a wedding can you!? Oh, alright, you can, but it’s usually not a first choice. Ask any party guest who has used high heel caps on grass recently & they’ll likely rave about them. Because walking & standing at these sorts of things is somewhat key! But wait…there’s more!
These nifty contraptions are not only reserved to protect your heels in the grass, but can also help shield your high heels from muddy streets, country roads & sand. What’s great about these heel caps is that many brands are making them in all kinds of shapes, sizes & colors. Making it easier for you to find a heel cap for your need & liking. The SolesMates Heel Covers for Grass
Solemates’ “High Heeler” is one of the most highly rated patented stiletto caps out there & a celebrity favorite. I recently found out that Solemates was the first of its kind to be invented (I verified it!). Ever since their product was released into the market, it has spurred a slew of copycat versions. Yes, they’re that good!
Made in the US, Solemates‘ heel caps are a discreet & functional option if you’ll be walking both on & off the grass in stiletto heels. The most popular style is the clear version, but they also come in black, silver & gold. Available in 3 sizes (narrow, classic, wide), these heel tip protectors can be reused.
The brand has expanded their line to include a variety of shoe care accessories, which I plan on featuring in the near future. This female-owned business was on Shark Tank a few weeks back. Did you catch the episode?
